Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for offering up such a great condo. It had all the comforts of home with a fantastic view. The balcony makes for a perfect photography platform among so many other things. The dolphins put on quite a show. I watched probably 2 dozen of them playing right off the sandbar for about 3 hours on Saturday. They were particularly playful. Im pretty sure I got some good shots of them jumping several feet out of the water.



Your place is pretty comfy. The bed is particularly nice...love the extra pillows and dreamy mattress. And the bath towels...I'm going shopping for those tomorrow. Big flat screens and cable are a nice touch for downtime. As are plenty of bath and beach towels. You've really thought the place out well. I felt at home.



But the big draw for me is the balcony. And the huge windows/doors. Can't say the granite counters didn't come in handy either...along with the full kitchen. But it's all about the balcony and you have a winner there.



Looking forward to visiting again.

Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here in Mr. Gilbert's condo. The place was very clean and we felt like we were at home. The last two previous years we stayed in a different condo at sunrise beach resort. This year we decided to try something else and I'm sure glad we did. The condo and the ocean were great. We will be back next year. Thanks again Mr. Gilbert for opening your condo to our family.

You'll never find a better owner to rent from. He's thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip to PCB and we were nervous about trying somewhere new. Upon opening the door to to the condo we knew we had chosen the correct place to spend our week. The condo was beautifully decorated from the light fixtures to the flooring. The master bath rain shower makes you never want to go back home and the beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The entire unit was immaculately clean and the huge balcony view of the gulf was amazing. We didn't have to use or buy any beach equipment. It was fully stocked with an umbrella, beach chairs, sand toys, towels, etc. Also, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to prepare a home cooked breakfast each day. Finally, the owner was basically instant to answer any questions we had during our stay. I can't say enough about how helpful he was to us throughout the week. RENT THIS CONDO. You will not be disappointed.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Condo. My family has stayed in Gary's condo on numerous occasions. We have tried out different condos yearly but continue to make this one a definite choice each time we stay in PCB. Gary is very quick to answer back to any questions or concerns we may have. This unit is our all time favorite. The cleaning staff is very thorough, always very clean upon our arrival. From the kitchen (full stock) to the bedrooms (comfy beds), to the bathrooms (amazing shower in Master), to the balcony (very spacious and an absolute beautiful view of the beach), this place is awesome! Not to mention we never have any problems with parking, and no long waits for elevator. We love, love, love this place! I am already looking forward to my next stay!

Absolute Stunner

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading reviews to see if this is the condo for you, do yourself a favor and click "book it" Now!! PCB is my husbands and mine favorite place to vacation. Every year we book a different condo to stay in....I doubt we'll ever want to stay anywhere else. This condo was an absolute stunner with one of the very best views on the beach. It was the most romantic stay we have ever had. I always miss my shower from home, now I miss the condos shower! The condo was well stocked with all the necessities. We visited on mothers day weekend and I entered to a happy mother's day card and fresh carnations, I can't image renting from better owners. Thank you for the opportunity to rent your gorgeous condo, I'm going to go bager my husband until he takes me back.

Super Condo! Excellence is the word that comes to mind. Gary thought of everything when creating this beautiful home away from home. He was an absolute joy to work with.
