"Spent 1 week during the beginning of off season, September 10-17. The owners made this stay as enjoyable as possible, staff, however, is hardly available. Clubhouse opens late and closes early; pools however were an added plus. Security gates were removed after 2nd day for repairs so there really was no need for security code to enter property; was told that property bracelets were to be worn daily but nobody ever checked the whole week. Exercise room opened daily at 10 and closed at 3; there was never anyone at clubhouse service desk; WiFi as advertised in townhouse was not available the whole week. The next day called owner to ask about WiFi but owner never called back. Internet accessibility was only available at the clubhouse. Check in time was 3PM but due to miscommunication with cleaning staff, townhouse wasn't cleaned until 9 PM. Upon arrival townhouse was dirty, garbage full, dirty dishes and messy refrigerator was evident; looked as though someone had just left. Owner was called and notified and he called back and said cleaning staff would arrive shortly. Owner stated it would be clean in 1 1/2 hours but cleaning lady stated it would be at least 3 hours. It would have been nice to rest after driving from Atlanta for 6 hours but we had to wait until property was ready. We were not planning on spending the majority of time at the townhouse so the accommodations were as well as could be expected for a rental that has been used for over 10 years. Beds were comfortable, shower pressure was great and the owners had many extras like tennis rackets and other swimming pool accessories. The giant sized washer & dryer was much appreciated and the outdoor grill and patio with decorative lights and umbrella are outstanding; great for relaxing on the patio while grilling and enjoying a glass of chilled wine after a trip to Shell Island, a dolphin boat ride and shopping trip to the designers outlet mall in Destin. Great deals on Adidas, Nike and other retailers. There is plenty to do in the area and if you want a great breakfast, try Jeannie"s One Stop Diner, right on Front Bech Road, great atmosphere and great food. Dinner on the Gulf at Runaway Island Restaurant, also on Front Beach Road has a great view of the sunset over the gulf. There are also plenty of novelty stores that have a variety of shells, starfish and trinkets all for $1. Great time in PCB....."
