About Jim Vider

I have been renting condos since 2000 and currently have this 3 bedroom unit at Gulf Crest and 2 bedroom units at the Boardwalk Beach Resort and Treasure Island Resort. Since I live on Panama City Beach, I see the units each time they are rented and the condition of the unit is always 'top rate.'

Some renters compare units only on the basis of price and fail to to ask the owner- when was the last time the owner laid eyes on the unit - when was unit last updated? I personally inspect the unit before you arrive to assure you my unit meets your expectations.

Jim Vider purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jim Vider chose Lower Grand Lagoon

Located in the Thomas Dr. area avoiding the congested Front Beach Rd. Gulf Crest 3 BR units have plenty of windows viewing the Gulf and Beach and have 700+ sq, ft. of wrap balcony.

What makes this condo unique

You can walk to restaurants, Golf Course and Family Enterainment

Outstanding Condo!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this condo! The view is outstanding, it was clean and fully stocked with everything you could ever need to cook. It was convenient to shopping and entertainment. The pool area is wonderful and the Tiki Bar is great for snacks and drinks. The owner checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed and was available to answer any questions we had.

There were 4 adults and 2 kids, we had plenty of room to enjoy each other's company but not be on top of each other.

Looking forward to visiting next year!

Best condo we ever rented

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting condos on the Gulf since our girls were small and now we have grandchildren coming with us. We have never rented the same condo twice. We think that is going to change. Most condos that we have rented aren't quite as nice as the pictures show. Jims condo is spotless and beautiful. The wrap around balcony is so cool. The first night we were there it was real windy on the gulf side so, we went to the back and sat back there and took in the sights on the road side. So many little things that they get right at Gulfcrest. Lots of luggage carts, fast elevators, easy access codes to enter the property and the room. No darn keys to mess with when you have two keys and 6 people. Covered parking, The pool area was clean, the hot tubs were hot, there was a security guard there every time we were down there. Jim (the owner) called us when we got there to make sure everything was up to par. and he called us before we left to make sure it all went okay. You can not get a better condo in that price range, period. Thanks Jim hope to see you next year.

Had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we expected. We like the location of the property and the condo was very nice. The owner was great and our stay was even better. The balcony was fabulous. We had teens with us and they had room to be teens and the adults had room to be adults. The convenience of walking to teen type activities was great. I would recommend this unit to anyone.

Spectacular View!

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at Gulf Crest before and loved it. This was the first time in unit 1001. The owner was easy to work with and personally checked in with us during the visit. The condo is very spacious and beautifully decorated. We had 5 adults and 2 teens and were very comfortable. The extra bunk beds were great for the teens! The panoramic view from the wrap around deck and the condo windows is incomparable and so relaxing! We enjoyed our stay so much... would definitely recommend this condo.

Beautiful and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. We stayed the week with my daughters softball team. They loved being able to jump back and forth between go karts, putt putt, pool and beach. All within steps away from each other. We also stayed with another family. We were worried about feeling like we were on top of one another but the condo is very spacious and has a large balcony. Would definitely recommend this condo. Owner very easy to work with. Only suggestion I would have is to maybe provide 2-3 little beach chairs to take down to beach :)

For the last 2 years we have stayed at Gulf Crest has been extremely enjoyable. We rented a week last year and could not wait to go back this year. The Unit was great...with everything we needed. You could sit for hours looking out the windows or sitting on the wrap around deck. It was also close to so much could find most anything ..restaurants, shopping, or fun is all up to you. We hope to be able to go back next year. It is well worth it...
