Don't rent this worn unit from Panhandle Getaways

  • 1 of 5

Loved the Sterling Beach property. We will stay here again but not in this same unit or from any other unit managed by Panhandle Getaways. About the only good thing I can say is that this unit does offer a great view thanks to the floor to ceiling beach-front windows. However, the unit itself was in poor condition. The furniture is worn, the bed linens were terrible, and the kitchen is gravely under-stocked. The shower dripped and several of the light bulbs were out. The unit was not cleaned and ready by the stated 4 PM check-in time. Additionally, it was not cleaned very well. It was not vacuumed and the windows were filthy. They left us 7 bath towels and no kitchen wash clothes or dish towels for the entire week for a unit that is supposed to accommodate 12 people. I had to call and request more. The app provided by this company was terrible and contained numerous incorrect codes. I had to call the WiFi provider because the Panhandle Getaways app contained the incorrect information. This is not how I want to spend my time on vacation. in addition, the beach access code was wrong. Also, we were never given the correct codes for the fitness room and movie theaters. It is frustrating beyond belief to have to make numerous calls complaining about simple basics that should have been done correctly in the first place!!

Condo was wonderful. Management company was sub par.

  • 3 of 5

There were no major "vacation ruining" issues during our stay however the issues we had were not resolved. I loved the condo but I would not likely stay with Panhandle Getaways again. There is an app that you download for all the information you need for your stay however many of the items on the app were not correct. Some of the pictures on the app and on VRBO were not current or not from our condo at all. When we arrived we only found 2 of the wrist bands for the pool. The app says that we were supposed to leave them on the counter when we departed however they were the type of paper bands that stick together. When I called the person told me that we didn't need to wear them just have them with us. He said they would bring more, but no one did. My daughter didn't have one at one point during the stay and the security guard told her she had to have one. Other people using the pool were wearing theirs. We didn't have enough to wear and the 2 were tough to manage for 8 people. The internet access information is not correct on the app. There was no fitness key in the apartment as described on the app, I called and they told me there was a code for the door, however the code that was given to us did not work. On the day before we were to leave we found a note on our car that told us we had to have a parking sticker. I called the panhandle getaways office and no one returned my call. There was no information on the app regarding parking. It was very worrisome thinking that our car could be towed (thankfully it was not). Also for the price of this condo I expected more general supplies than 1 trash bag, 1 automatic dish washing detergent, no dish soap, and only a couple of rolls of toilet paper. The theater that is described has to be rented for like $100 a night. Again, I loved the condo it was absolutely beautiful 5 stars for the unit. The view was amazing and the overall property was great. But I am afraid if there were a major issue, I don't have confidence that panhandle getaways would have dealt with it promptly.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our son, his wife, teenage son and daughter stayed for a week in this lovely condo. It was clean and well equipped. All of the appliances were new. We did have a little problem with the induction stove but were able to find help on how to operate it. It also needs special pots or pans and we were able to find those that would work. My recommendation would be to post instructions on how to operate the stove. But we had a great time! We loved the arrangement of the bedrooms for out 2 families and the abundance of clean towels. Everything was perfect! We will definitely stay her again.

Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love love love this condo and this resort! The condo is to die for! We had incredible gulf and beach views and the condo was clean and beautifully decorated!

The resort had more than enough amenities for me and my family... we were able to grill on the property, enjoy the gulf front pool and then watch a movie in the theatre on site.

We cannot wait to come back!

This condo was very spacious but it needs to be refreshed and updated. When we arrived we called a few minutes before 3 to see if we could possibly get in early. Panhandle Getaways said no problem, in four minutes you can get in. When we went to the room the maid had just arrived and the condo needed cleaning! It took us three days and four calls to get our parking passes and swim passes. The woodgrain sticky paper is coming off the cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms, cabinets need to be replaced. The stove needs to be replaced - we had to clean the stove top and it took some cleaning. The furniture is rather funky for a condo at the beach and is torn and worn in a couple of places.The mattresses are long overdue for replacement. The description in VRBO states covered parking but there is no covered parking. It's been a while since we vacationed in PCB and will probably be a while before we venture to PCB again but never will stay at Sterling Beach again.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came with some of our friends for New Years and let me say, it was the most fun we have had in a long time! The condo was the perfect size for all of us and if you haven't been to PCB for New Years, you're missing out! It was a great experience!!

Sterling Beach Resort is centrally located to all the fun Panama City Beach has to offer. Just a short ride to Pier Park where you can enjoy incredible shopping & plenty of family friendly restaurants. Make sure to check out the pier as it is simply gorgeous!
