I've rented the unit #1016 from Susan Chen before and had a very pleasant experience. She returned my deposit promptly upon our return and was very professional in the transaction. Our correspondence went smoothly. The room was clean and the accommodations was very nice. We love the location on Thomas Dr. which is away from most of the heavy partying... More

I have stayed many places in Panama City Beach but for the past 10 years "The Summit' has been my home, away from home. My husband and I plus many friends, have always rented from Susan Chen. She has always made us very happy with her condos. We have stayed in 1414 and 1016. The 1016 unit is a beautiful... More

Rental process was very easy and laid back. The location of the summit was nice. Right in the middle of all the fun. Friendly people... More

Absolutely the best ocean views to be had. Ample balcony with a chaise lounge, chair and side table to enjoy the view any time of day or night. The building is literally steps from the beach, just go down the elevator, walk across the pool patio and there you are, in heaven! We were on the third floor. The unit... More

This is my second season, same building different apartment. Both accomodations have been niecely appointed. I will say it does depend on who you rent from and where you are in the building as...

Rooms are old and run down. Patio door was broken. Unit was filthy, carpets were shag circa 1980's...disgustingly dirty. Thank God we didn't bring our wives on this trip they would have turned around and gone home. On the bright side there were no worries about using the living room to set up our bikes for a triathlon. The few... More

Upon returning to the front of the complex approx. 15 minutes later I saw someone leaving the unit. I decided to check it out. I went in and the... More
