About Owner/Property Manager

I own a restaurant called George's Steak Pit and live in Northwest Alabama. The restaurant has served my area since 1956. My parent's started the business and I purchased it in 1983. The web address is georgessteakpit. Take a look at the site. It is a fine dining upscale restaurant. I know how to take care of customers. I will do the same with my renters.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2006

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Florida Panhandle

Panama City Beach was being rebuilt with new condos. The beaches are rated in the Top 10 Beaches in the World. The New International Airport is currently being built.

What makes this condo unique

Schooners restaurant is next door.

Away from the crowds and traffic.

Very clean and beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean. It is decorated beautifully with a new stylish, comfortable sofa. The bed was also very comfortable with new comforters on both the queen and bunk beds. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would possibly need to prepare meals. It is a big plus for me to have free beach service included in the condo rental price. This is the second time I have rented this unit, and I will definitely be back!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

The room was nice and very clean. We really enjoyed having beach chairs for the week and not having to worry where we would sit each day. The only thing I wish would have been different was the pool hours closing at 10 but that set by the Seychelles not the owner. Hope to visit again next year.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes it would be nice for late hour swims in the pools but most places do close them around 10pm. Thanks Frank

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

The view is amazing! This condo is very well kept, clean & has nice furnishings. The beach chairs & big bonus!

Has everything you need for a great vacay.

The owner is very nice & always returned calls quickly.

Had a great vacation other than we got stuck in the elevator (had twin 7 year old grandsons) for over 5 mins. until another guest forced it open. The manager of Seychelles was not very compassionate or apologetic. This had nothing to do with the owner...He is easy to talk to & very sweet!

Would stay again!!!

Owner's Response: Sorry for the elevator issue. That can be scary and thankfully very rare thing . I did forward this review to the manager so he might realize his response was not appropriate. Glad you enjoyed the condo and your stay. Thanks again Frank

It was OK.....

  • 3 of 5

I've stayed at Seychelles before but this was my first visit in this unit. The owner was really easy to work with, very quick to answer any questions, easy instructions for check-in and fast refund on the deposit. The unit was clean and that's the main thing for me. However, the washer and dryer is very outdated and the dryer takes 2 cycles to dry your clothing most of the time. The mattress on the sofa bed is worn out and my kids complained all week, I almost went to walmart to buy a blow-up mattress. The patio is very crowded because of a table that doesn't really fit out there. The patio chairs were just kind of scattered about and padded which was aggravating because when you come up from swimming and you're wet, the last thing you want to sit on is a padded chair. They never dry! So when you're dry, you can't sit on the patio without getting your butt wet!! The master bathroom door does not lock so you have to lock the whole room for privacy which can be inconvenient for others that may need to get into the room while someone is in the restroom. The last thing about this condo is that you're asked to wash some towels and sheets before you leave. There is a detergent pod and dryer sheet in a ziploc for you to do this. I understand that the cleaners may have a tight schedule and this probably helps out with their time, but it was inconvenient for me trying to pack up and wash everything I needed to be clean before I left. I was charged a cleaning fee, so I shouldn't feel obligated to clean sheets and/or towels. Not interested in staying in this unit again. It was OK, but I've had better for a better price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Sorry about the sofa bed Did not know there was a problem. Will check on it and replace if needed. The stack washer and dryer unit will not dry if overloaded and lint holder is not keep clean. It is working fine. The laundry package is for you to wash first set of linens not for your personal use. I was leaving full containers of laundry and dishwasher cleaning for renters but they would take it with them so not only pods are there for use. Sorry you expected more. Frank
