Beautiful condo with amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in this condo. Only reason I gave 4 stars because the beds were not comfortable. But everything else was fantastic

Gorgeous views, great pool, and spacious condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo may become our regular vacation spot! The view from the front windows as you walk in is absolutely breathtaking, and the condo is incredibly spacious. The layout is fabulous-two balconies, a beautiful inset stone fireplace, and you can see the beach from every room except the kid's room and bathrooms. Whoever designed it had some sense of why people come to the beach. The pool is extremely large and sparkling, with jets to keep it moving, and there are grassy areas around the building which add to the beauty. It's extremely close to the beach-an even shorter walk than a normal beachfront development, and the beach was very clean. We went over Labor Day weekend and it wasn't crowded at all. Even the elevators were quick, and they offered carts for people hauling their stuff up and down. I think they fixed the smart TV issue previously addressed as we were able to use our Roku with no issue.

There are a few tiny things to be aware of:

1) there are monitors at the pool checking wristbands-they will absolutely kick you out if you don't have it/go get it. Just remember it!

2) the bedding in the kids room is old. We swapped it for our own blankets.

3) the fireplace had a piece of metal in the vent that flapped during very high winds.

4) the dishwasher is close to the cabinets and has to be pulled to the right to open easily.

5) the hot tub chemicals got off balance while we were there.

Those are the only things we can think of to list-the condo was a wonderful overall experience, and we will definitely be back!

Sterling Beach 501

  • 4 of 5

Nice place. Loved the full length windows which provided a great view of the Gulf. Location is in the quieter section of PCB, which was nice. Great beach with nice chairs. Pool was also a good size and well maintained. Fitness center was average. The only real negative about the unit was the HVAC system which did not seemed to be balanced. The living and kitchen area were always nice and comfortable. The bedrooms we several degrees warmer with the bunk room particularly warm. The owners must know there is an issue as there were two box fans in the bunk room to help circulate air.

Stunning View & Property

  • 4 of 5

The good news first. The condo is stunning and the pictures do not do it justice. The view of the beach is spectacular. You have so many options to see the beach: the living room, the wrap around balcony off master bedroom and the second master suite!!! The condo is tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

Now the bad news. It was raining my first couple of days so wanted to watch the smart TV in the living room so could at least look at the beach like in the pictures. Unable to connect the Smart TV to the internet & when called PMH I was informed they don't guarantee those things "As long as the tv turns & can see channels". Pretty disappointing when paying the top rate during peak season. Received a follow up call stating the homeowner deactivated that part of the television. The other issue was the master bath jacuzzi did not work. I suspect that was turned off by the owner as well. Those fortunately were overall small issues.

The biggest concern that only allowed a 3 1/2-4 star rating is a drilling or construction that woke me up every morning and continued until ~ 5 pm. I wish the management team had blocked out that so would not had to spend my vacation in this spectacular condo listening to construction.

Gorgeous View

  • 4 of 5

Start of our stay was unsatisfactory because the air conditioner was broken when we arrived. New system was installed the next day, however, and our vacation was saved. The condo was very accommodating and beautiful. The BEST thing was looking out over the water and activities from the large, unobstructed windows. The pool is large and well kept. The rules for property use are strict and welcomed. We would definitely stay here again!!

Enjoyed the stay; customer service very disappointing

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in Sterling Beach units for many years and have enjoyed it each time. This unit is nicely furnished and the floor-to-ceiling windows provide an excellent view of the Gulf. It was a comfortable and enjoyable stay, even considering the poor weather we experienced. Our only concern this time is the very poor communication from Panhandle Getaways. We had a very minor issue with several lightbulbs being burned out when we arrived. We emailed Panhandle Getaways, but did not receive a response. We informed a representative who randomly came to our room, and we were told that he would pass along the issue. Two more days passed without any response. We emailed Panhandle Getaways again, and we finally received a response that someone would be coming to the unit to replace the bulbs. However, no one ever showed up. We emailed Panhandle Getaways a third time after our trip was over, and two weeks later, we have still not received a response. The lightbulbs were not necessarily a major issue, but the lack of customer service and communication were. For the cost of the rental, we expected much better customer service.
