Nice place overall but you can tell it has been well used!

  • 3 of 5

The condo was roomy and the beach was awesome. The condo definitely needed some maintenance.

1. Broken fan over bedroom.

2. Broken garbage disposal.

3. Broken hinge on kitchen cabinet. Peeling paint on most cabinets.

4. A little trash under the bed.

But...all that said. With a little maintenance I would definitely stay there again!

(Also would be nice if pool was open till 11)

Summer Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went down for a wonderful week and had an absolute blast. The condo is awesome and the views and location simply can't be beat. Super easy check in/out and Emerald Coast Destinations are awesome to deal with. Highly recommended!

The property was cleaned and nicely appointed. The door frame in the master bathroom was broken on our arrival. The dryer is extremely loud and makes enough noise that you think something is terribly wrong. The balcony was quite large and the view great. Of note, other visitors were family oriented. I saw no evidence of drunk teenagers or disorder....quite the opposite to what my daughter experienced at a different facility.

Gulf Crest - Beautiful Views, Great Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

My first thought when I booked was a little concern about the location. But was not an issue, it had a private setting, awesome pools and beautiful views of the Gulf overlooking the lake, it made for a great vacation experience.

Our condo was beyond our expectations in terms of size and how nice it was. The living area was very large and the balcony as well. And the views were stunning from the balcony. The beds were very comfortable and the master bathroom was huge and a marble tub.

We enjoyed a couple complimentary beach chairs and umbrella, which was nice. Although I must say we spent most of our time at the pools enjoying the views.

All in all, I would definitely return to Gulf Crest for my next trip Panama City Beach. I think it would be a great place to vacation to even during colder months as well, since they have a couple of really nice hot tubs.

Very Pleasant!!

  • 5 of 5

This 14th floor unit was very spacious and bright. The location is perfect, with very pretty views of the gulf and pools. The furniture was comfortable, very clean and the kitchen well stocked. The pool was nice, and the access to the beach excellent -- close to Pier Park too. We will visit again.

Quiet rental - directly on beautiful beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our Gulf Crest Resort rental experience. Upon our arrival the condo was clean and had all the comforts of home. The rental process through Emerald Coast Destinations was so easy.

We invited friends for dinner one night that live in nearby Destin; they were so impressed with our condo at Gulf Crest they plan to refer visitors. I think that speaks so highly of where we stayed and I'm pleased to be able to refer this rental to others.
