Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at #1001 very much! We were in town for the Florida Ironman triathlon. Gulf Crest is on the marathon course, and not a bad walk from the Ironman Village and finish line. In addition to being a perfect location, this condo was nicely appointed, and had everything we needed on hand. I was prepared to wipe counters, etc down before using the kitchen -- but the condo was spotless. I brought bath soap, dish soap, paper towels and toilet paper, due to my experience with rentals in the past. I put all of my products away, as everything was provided and were good quality...not cheap brands. We were surrounded by windows, so the condo was always bright with natural light, and the ocean views from the balcony are second to none!

The owner was easy to reach, and answered any questions I had before and during our stay. I highly recommend this condo - you will not be disappointed! We would definitely stay here again if we return to Panama City Beach! Thanks Jim!

Great view, good condition, clean

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great, very clean, kitchen had everything, cookware very nice. View was great with large balcony and plenty of patio furniture.

Patio floor also very clean.

Beds in good shape, sheets of good quality. Everything in pretty good shape. Couch starting to sag just a bit, but still comfy. This is a great condo and Jim Vider was very good about checking in with us. Have stayed here once before in 16th floor, that condo was worn out and dirty.

But unit 1001 was great!!! Would rent again!! Loved the early check in and push button front door lock. Gulfcrest is a nice easy going place. Close walk to the beach, pools clean and very safe. Parking easy. Check in essy, check out easy. Very little wait for elevators. Clean beach. Close to everything.

Excellent condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Gulf Crest recently and couldn't have been happier. The condo was beautiful, very inviting and so relaxing. The wrap around porch was fantastic since we could look at the beach during the day, then walk to the front side in the evening to see activities in the city...and you can't beat the proximity to the beach! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and our child loved the kids bunk beds. The owner was available anytime I had questions, which was very nice to know. I would absolutely stay there again on my next visit to Panama City Beach!

Great Vacation in Panama City Beach, FL

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation in beautiful Panama City Beach recently. The three bedroom Gulf Crest condo owned by Mr. Vider was spacious; it was very clean and well maintained; the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed for a pleasant stay; and the view of the gulf from the master suite, dining, kitchen, and den areas was gorgeous. Hope to reserve this condo for future vacations.

The Summer of Tropical Storm Cindy

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo in a great location. We were able to walk to dinner most nights. The pools are perfect size and the beach was not shoulder to shoulder. Despite the two days of storms, our trip was great. The interior of our condo was so beautiful and the lay out was great too. It made staying in not so bad.

Great Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very clean and very nice. Everything was as discussed in the descriptions. The only thing not mentioned is that you only get two parking spots. This only was a problem with us as we had a couple come in a truck and trailer from Louisiana and we had to find and pay for parking off site. Only a minor surprise and problem. Would definitely rent this condo again.

About Jim Vider

I have been renting condos since 2000 and currently have this 3 bedroom unit at Gulf Crest and 2 bedroom units at the Boardwalk Beach Resort and Treasure Island Resort. Since I live on Panama City Beach, I see the units each time they are rented and the condition of the unit is always 'top rate.'

Some renters compare units only on the basis of price and fail to to ask the owner- when was the last time the owner laid eyes on the unit - when was unit last updated? I personally inspect the unit before you arrive to assure you my unit meets your expectations.

Jim Vider purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jim Vider chose Panama City Beach

Located in the Thomas Dr. area avoiding the congested Front Beach Rd. Gulf Crest 3 BR units have plenty of windows viewing the Gulf and Beach and have 700+ sq, ft. of wrap balcony.

What makes this condo unique

You can walk to restaurants, Golf Course and Family Enterainment
