Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and enjoyed staying in your condo. It was away from the elevator which meant it was easier to sleep.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

2016 marked the third time my family and I have rented from Alice, and we are still pleased. The condo is updated and everything is in working order. It has always been clean, and just right for my family of four (kids are 14 and 9). The Summit itself is an older complex, and has all that may come with that, but it has everything my family needs and wants. Alice is very kind and great to work with. We hope to come back next year.

The place is amazing! Very clean and well kept! Great view! The owner was so kind and easy to work with! I look forward to staying here again in the future!

I have stayed in many units in The Summit over the years and this has become my favorite!

The bed was actually comfortable!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Really a great time. The Summit is one of the older units in PCB, but this unit is really quite nice. It was clean, well stocked, and truly enjoyable. Alice was very timely in her response to any questions we had the first day or so. We highly recommend this unit. In fact, while competing in Ironman Florida, one of my training mates rented the unit for next year. It was much nicer than the unit they had rented on a lower floor in the same building. Thank you so much!

Excellent visit

  • 5 of 5

Must have done a major overhaul after the bad review in August because we were impressed - the condo was extremely clean, well kept, & organized. The Summit is one of the older buildings on the beach, it's not going to be just like the brand new ones, we didn't expect that. You can tell that this condo is older but it's definitely not outdated. It looks that every effort has been made to update what can be. Are the tiles older, yes - are they mildew, NO. NO stains on cushions, no disorganized kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here & will for sure rent from Alice again!

Needs many updates, not as clean as it should be

  • 2 of 5

We have been coming to PCB for 8 years, and enjoy trying different condos on the strip. We will not be back to the Summit! We were disappointed with our unit for several reasons. Mildew on the ceilings where the shower is, unclean air vents, stains on the cushions of the furniture, and a disorganized and unclean kitchen area. Many of the dishes were dirty when we took them out of the cabinets, many items that we have had in past units weren't supplied here, the ice machine in the freezer didn't work, and the blender was missing parts so we couldn't use it. The hot tub was extremely unkept, and we actually had to take one of our children to the doctor the day we got home, as she developed a horrible rash that looked similar to chicken pox. We were told it is called "pool rash" and it comes from bacteria that breeds in unkept hot tubs and pools. That is disgusting! We are very disappointed in the quality, when we paid as much money as soon very nice establishments in years past. Also, I would not recommend this condo for families. We were the minority. Most people were young, partying, and smoking/puking/drunk out in the ocean and sand. Not a positive experience for our little children to be around.
