Injured from water leak/plumbing issue

  • 1 of 5

This condo is very roomy & laid out out well. It is in need of updates ( furniture is uncomfortable, especially the beds) and repairs (broken table in living room, sliding doors, fire alarms not installed, wires hanging out of the walls). However, I would not have written a bad review for these items. What was most disappointing is there was a water leak in the condo that caused me to slip and fall when I got up in the middle of the night. Apparently, where we washed dishes for couple days backed up into the dishwasher & then seeped out. Later that afternoon repairmen came unannounced to replace a cooktop on the stove. They were there an hour so we had to change our plans of cooking inside. They said the water was backing up into the dishwasher and this happens often & they would look at it. When they left water was still standing in dishwasher & the smell was awful. It did get better in next day or so. When I returned home I let the owners know that I had fallen and nursed an injury for 2 days. I asked to have extra money back on my damage deposit, which they said damage deposit was included in the rent & not refundable. When I explained this plumbing issue effected my last two days at the beach b/c I was injured I asked for 2 days of rent refunded. I could barely walk & could not go do anything with my family or go the beach. We also had to eat out b/c of the plumbing issue. They would not comply and I said I would have to write a review warning people of what I had to deal with it. One of the owner's exact words "Wow, you are going to write us a bad review if we do not give you money because a couple tv's didn't work that we fixed when you told us?" Actually that did happen & they did address it immediately. That was not my issue and it was well stated in the email to me it was the other inconveniences mentioned & the fact I was injured from it. Thank goodness, I did not rack up a lot of medical bills too. I liked this condo building but would NOT rent from these owners again! When you pay that much money you expect to have comfortable beds, repairs completed, and the owners be concerned if you were INJURED from a water leak and water standing in the floor.

Beautiful view

  • 3 of 5

As we arrived and got in our condo we had to clean for about 2 hrs before we could start our vacation. We noticed the floors where nasty, sheets on the beds smelled like perfume and had hair on them, master bathroom was nasty and had hair in it. Overall it's a really nice place to stay but they needs a new HOUSEKEEPER!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the beautiful view from the spacious balconies at The Gulf Crest. The owner really takes pride in this condo and upgrades different things every year. This is an isolated incident and we really wish you would have called us we could have sent the housekeeper back right away and cleared up any problems in the condo. This unit typically books up fast in the summer months. Please let us know when you will be planning your next trip to PCB!

Great time on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location and beautiful beach!! Even though it rained for two days because of the tropical storm (nothing you can do about the weather) we had a fantastic time. The condo is spacious and has fantastic views. Could not ask for more!! Perfect for our family of four!!

The property was nice but pool was shutdown because of pump.

  • 1 of 5

The room was very dirty. Dust under bed that was really thick. Master bath smelled of urine so strong that you had to keep exhaust fan running to tolerate smell. Very few towels and no bath cloths in master bath. Bed was broken in master bedroom and fitted sheet would not stay on the bed. Coffee table was a safety hazard. Room was hot because of limited thermostat. Horrible!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! However, we did not receive any calls from you during your stay to report any of the issues stated but if the housekeeping contractor we have cleaning this unit missed something we certainly would have sent them back to correct any deficiency.

Pretty good!

  • 3 of 5

The complex was pleasantly quiet, especially since we were there during Thunder Beach. From the master bedroom, the sound of the motorcycles on the road really wasn't audible at all. The community within the Gulf Crest was pleasant and everyone was friendly, from the front office staff all the way to the owners we met while coming and going from our condo.

The condo itself was enjoyable as well, with plenty of space and a wonderful view of the gulf. There were a few downfalls, which thankfully didn't monumentally affect our overall stay. There seemed to be mold in a few places (around some a/c vents in the living area, etc). The light in the extra bathroom didn't work, and there was sand on the floor around the dining room table as well as in the bathtub in the extra bathroom. Also, the stovetop was cracked clean across from the front to the back. Thankfully, it was still usable on a couple of the eyes.

In spite of the few things that could be updated/fixed, it was an enjoyable stay! We didn't have time to go down to the pool or take advantage of many of the hotel's amenities while we were there, thanks to the nature of our visit to PCB, but the community was a pleasant one. It was nicely family-oriented area, even so much as that the bikers who stayed there during the Thunder Beach weekend were pleasant and not noisy. Also, the location is ideal for Walmart and many attractions and restaurants in the area. It wasn't even a far drive to get to Pier Park or Gulf World or any of the attractions which were a little further down the beach.
