Spacious condo with great amenities but needs a DEEP CLEANING!

  • 3 of 5

This condo is centrally located with great pool and beautiful beach. It is spacious with the kitchen dividing the master bedroom from the other two. Immediately after entering the condo we noticed it needs to be cleaned. The air filter directly over the main entry has large dusty, dirty clumps of nastiness hanging from it. The refrigerator had a bad smell and remnants of old food. The microwave had food particles clinging to the top, bottom, sides and inside the door. The inside of the oven is dirty. We originally thought the condo had few dishes and glasses - as we could only find a few. On the second day I opened the dishwasher and found them - all loaded in there but dirty - the dishwasher had not been run. The bathtubs were both dirty. The tile floor is so dirty it made the bottom of our bare feet black - if I could attach a picture to this review I would - as we took a family portrait of our dirty feet from walking barefoot in the condo. We contacted the rental company via email - they had the cleaning crew contact us - they did when we were on a dolphin cruise and unavailable to let them into the condo. They said they would not be back in the area this week to re-clean. They were astonished that we thought the condo was dirty. I plead with the owners to please contract with a different cleaning crew. The condo would be perfect if it gets a proper cleaning.

Great accommodations that even comes with a beach!

  • 5 of 5

A spacious unit to be sure. Everything we needed for cooking was available in the kitchen and appreciated. Enjoyed the outside patio of this end unit condo and we caught much of the incoming breeze from the beach. I would definitely recommend this unit to others. Emerald Coast Destinations was very responsive and delivered on all expectations.

Panama City Beach Florida rental

  • 5 of 5

WOW, is all we can say!!!!! This Condo is absolutely incredible, very homey, very comfy, the view from the 6 th floor is perfect...we spent many relaxing nights on the balcony. Being on the corner of the condo was perfect as we had access the whole way around the side with so much room. The owner Richard was so very accommodating and was certainly a pleasure to work with. The bedrooms are roomy, all 3. The little bunks are perfect for kids or adults. The kitchens is awesome and tv's in every room....nice little laundry area.

Elevators were very quick, and having the facility be Gaited and parking included was so nice .

The beach here is amazing....sand so white and the water looks like the Caribbean . The temperature of the water was 69 degrees...and the water was so clean and so clear. There is a Tiki Bar, with a grilling area. A side area that's covered to sit at a picnic bench. Two pools and two hot tubs. Did I mention this facility is so Very Clean!!!! So close to many attractions, restaurants, the mall...lots of fun things in walking distance as well. Can't begin to say enough about this rental....we absolutely LOVED IT!!!! And for sure will be returning.

Thank you Richard for an amazing stay here...hope to be back again soon!!

Fabulous 6th Floor Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The unit was equipped better than any other one we have stayed in. The property is so convenient to any destination you could possibly imagine in the Panama City Beach area. The condo was extremely clean and spacious. The views from the 6th floor balcony were the best! We hope we can stay there next year and would recommend it to other people. You would certainly enjoy it.

Convenient, Clean, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My first time renting thru Emerald Coast Destinations and they accommodated all my requests. Easy and seamless! The place was a perfect location at Gulf Crest and directly on the beach. Also, very clean! I was able to enjoy working in a peaceful environment as I was on a work and play voyage. Will definitely try again.
