Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Ms.Susie! This has seriously been the best beach trip we have had. Even though we were under a tornado watch for half the week and it rained a good bit we still had fun. From dealing with everything from your kindness to the friendly staff (chair Boys, security guard, front desk) it has been great. I will be sure to go on VRBO and leave a great review! In fact we may just rent the same week again next year and only use you from now on. We have met several different people (and made friendships) who apparently come at the same time every year and only book here. I just wanted to thank you for the amazing hospitality and let you know we were very pleased! Don't want to leave! 😃

My family and I are NO strangers to Panama City Beach. This condo was FANTASTIC! It was clean (I am VERY picky), decorated beautifuly, spacious, and had all the comforts of home. The location is on an great end of the beach with many activities within walking distance. Susie, the owner, is GREAT to work with and was very helpful in every way. The complex itself was great too. Two pools and two jacuzzis and don't let me forget to mention the poolside tiki bar (mamma, had her fair share of daiquiris). The beach is accessable by ramp making it great for those who have accessibility issues. All in all this was a fantastic place to stay. Thanks Susie......we will DEFINITELY see you next year!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just had a fantastic week at the beach. The unit was beautiful and clean. The balcony was huge and where we spent lots of time drinking coffee, playing games and relaxing. Every person we talked to was friendly and helpful. Will, the man who set up our chairs and umbrella each day, was fantastic. He can set up beach activities like parasailing and banana boat and was a wealth of local knowledge. He remembered us and checked on us every day. The pool was very nice and the facilities were well kept. Someone was always cleaning, sweeping, etc and it showed. We were a short drive to Pier Park (milkshakes at The Yard are a must do) and other great restaurants. I hadn't been to Panama City in 20 years and it is certainly has a commercial and touristy feel but the beaches were beautiful, clean and not too crowded. We will definitely be back and would recommend this unit to anyone. Susie was great to interact with and the condo was exactly what we needed for a relaxing week at the beach.

Gulf Crest is an awesome place to stay !!! Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a week at Gulf Crest Condos (unit #906)and loved it. The condo was in like new condition , nicely decorated throughout every room and very comfortable beds as well as being one of the cleanest I have rented. The view from the large balcony was one of the best you can get of Panama City Beach! The complex had everything you could need as well as it own Tiki bar out by the pools and hots tubs. The staff was very friendly and accomindating at check in. Our Cabana Boy Will was by far one of the best!! Not only was our chairs and umbrella up waiting for us everyday which were always clean and in good condition. He would frequently stop by during your time on the beach to see if you needed anything and recommended some fun local bar and grills which ended up being some our favorite... so a big thanks to Will.

If you want a great condo go to VRBO Gulf Crest # 904 and rent from Susie Thomas, great condo and awesome owner to work with. Thank you Susie.

We will definitely return to this exact vacation spot and highly recommend it!!

This condo provided just what we needed! It had plenty of space and the kitchen was great to cook dinner in! We loved sitting out on the balcony at night listening to music and the waves. If we go back to PCB, we’ll definitly try to book here again!
