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

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 :)

GULF CREST

  • 5 of 5

For the last 2 years we have stayed at Gulf Crest ..it 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 activity...you could find most anything ..restaurants, shopping, or fun activities..it is all up to you. We hope to be able to go back next year. It is well worth it...

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing in Panama City Beach for many years. This condo was truly like a home away from home for our family. It far surpasses any place we have ever stayed. It is spacious with plenty of room for our whole family. The views from the balcony and from inside the condo are spectacular. The furnishings are top of the line. The beds are very comfortable, just like home. Free wifi kept us in touch and allowed us to search nearby places to visit. The kitchen is well furnished. We actually ate in one night and enjoyed fresh, local seafood without the hustle and bustle and waits in a noisy restaurant. I especially liked booking directly with Jim. Communication was easy and prompt. The unit was affordable and a real value for the quality and size of the unit.

FABULOUS!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing on Thomas Drive since I was a little girl. We have stayed in most of the resorts up and down Thomas Drive. This condo by far was the cleanest and had the most spectacular views compared to all the others. This condo also was well stocked with all the necessary items needed to have a stress free vacation. There is no doubt that we will plan to rent this unit again from Jim. He surpassed all our expectations when it came to luxury, price, and customer service. Lastly, I don't want to forget the fabulous wrap around porch on this unit that offers tons of space for everyone to enjoy at one time. DON'T EVEN THINK TWICE!
