Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Ms.Susie! This has seriously been the best beach trip we have had. Even though we were under a tornado watch for half the week and it rained a good bit we still had fun. From dealing with everything from your kindness to the friendly staff (chair Boys, security guard, front desk) it has been great. I will be sure to go on VRBO and leave a great review! In fact we may just rent the same week again next year and only use you from now on. We have met several different people (and made friendships) who apparently come at the same time every year and only book here. I just wanted to thank you for the amazing hospitality and let you know we were very pleased! Don't want to leave! 😃

My family and I are NO strangers to Panama City Beach. This condo was FANTASTIC! It was clean (I am VERY picky), decorated beautifuly, spacious, and had all the comforts of home. The location is on an great end of the beach with many activities within walking distance. Susie, the owner, is GREAT to work with and was very helpful in every way. The complex itself was great too. Two pools and two jacuzzis and don't let me forget to mention the poolside tiki bar (mamma, had her fair share of daiquiris). The beach is accessable by ramp making it great for those who have accessibility issues. All in all this was a fantastic place to stay. Thanks Susie......we will DEFINITELY see you next year!!

The condo was absolutely beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

The common property was a little disappointing. One of the two hot tubs was cold all week long and the actual hot tub was constantly filled with unsupervised kids. The condo itself was gorgeous and the beach was stunning. Also a little frustrating trying to catch an elevator on check in day - there were only 2 operating.

I would definitely stay there again but I would certainly hope that these issues would be addressed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed our condo and the beautiful beach! We strive to make our place a great place to make it a home away from home. As for your concerns about the elevator, unsupervised kids and one hot tub being out of service, we will bring it forward to the HOA for improvement in quality of service. We feel so fortunate to have two hot tubs just in case one is out of service and 3 elevators also just in case one goes down. Gulf Crest is a fabulous place to vacation! Come back and see us!

Fantastic Condo that exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Condo unit and white sand beach surpassed expectations. Extremely clean, large rooms, comfortable beds, beautifully decorated, and the beach itself was perfect. Since on the east end it was not super crowded during the holiday week, the assigned beach chaise lounges were a great perk too, and it was so easy to arrange rentals of paddle boards/banana boat rides. Volleyball nets were even close by. Perfect view of fireworks from its huge balcony during week of the 4th of July as well. Thank you also for the recommendation of Sugar Boogers for my daughter’s birthday cake. It was beautiful, delicious, and she loved it. The location of Gulf Crest Condominiums was ideal because it was close to all our planned water excursions (Sea Screamer, Flippers Jet Ski tours) and even St. Andrews Park where we had pictures taken. The only drawback I can think of had absolute nothing to do with the condo itself. The facility only had one elevator bank and the elevators were slow, so patience is a definite must on check in and check out days. Otherwise, this condo and vacation destination exceeded expectations!!!! We will definitely recommend your unit to others and be back in the future.

Nice decor and large condo

  • 4 of 5

Location is great- condo is beautiful. Loved the big deck and plenty of room for everyone.

Only recommendation would be to replace the bathroom rugs.

But we would go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. As stated in our lease and the laminated instructions on the refrigerator, we would have been more than happy to replace the bathroom rugs if you had just let us know. Our cleaning crews number are in both places. They would have been replaced within a few hours. The bathroom rugs are replaced approximately 4 times per year. Thank you for staying with us. We are so glad you enjoyed the condo and the decor and the large deck and hopefully the gorgeous beach too:)

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just had a fantastic week at the beach. The unit was beautiful and clean. The balcony was huge and where we spent lots of time drinking coffee, playing games and relaxing. Every person we talked to was friendly and helpful. Will, the man who set up our chairs and umbrella each day, was fantastic. He can set up beach activities like parasailing and banana boat and was a wealth of local knowledge. He remembered us and checked on us every day. The pool was very nice and the facilities were well kept. Someone was always cleaning, sweeping, etc and it showed. We were a short drive to Pier Park (milkshakes at The Yard are a must do) and other great restaurants. I hadn't been to Panama City in 20 years and it is certainly has a commercial and touristy feel but the beaches were beautiful, clean and not too crowded. We will definitely be back and would recommend this unit to anyone. Susie was great to interact with and the condo was exactly what we needed for a relaxing week at the beach.
