My parents and I booked this unit for a family vacation this week. Including my wife and children, there are 8 of us and the unit is spacious enough for all of us. The unit is decent enough and has great views with floor to ceiling windows and a large wrap around balcony. The owners are really nice, but the... More

We stayed for a week in June 2013 in a 3 bedroom condo owned by Larry Mason. It was beautifully decorated, clean and in good repair. Mr. Mason was very easy to deal with. The facilities were great, clean and security was always present and made it feel like a nice, safe place for our family. We enjoyed the pools,... More

First time to stay here and would definitely return. We rented the unit thru Joni's Beach Rentals. We were on the second floor, which had pros and cons. It was great that we never had to wait on an elevator. The downside was people could see in your unit, particularly at night. Probably the 3rd or 4th floor may be... More

We really enjoyed our time at Gulf Crest. Two large pools, 2 nice hot tubs, a bar for your convenience right by them. VERY CLEAN PLACE. The grounds are clean and dog friendly based on the room you get. You must check with the owner or unit to verify you can have dogs. Safe place for pets. The room we... More

We rented a 3-bedroom unit on the 19th floor from a private owner. The unit was exactly as described, the furnishings and decor were lovely and the unit, with the exception of the floor, was clean. Truly, there was nothing we could have thought of that this unit did not have as far as appliances, furnishings, utensils, etc; it was... More

This is our first stay but I must say that it was great. We were on the second floor so we did not have to use elevator and could just walk down to the pool and beach. We also had a reserved spot in parking garage that was very convenient to our room. The room was very clean and had... More

We recently rented Unit 301 from Jon @ Emeral Coast Destinations. DO NOT RENT FROM HIM! The unit was so disgusting. Moldy showers, stained towels, ripped sceens on every window, missing slats in the blinds, scratched and worn walls in desperate need of paint, dried food (or was it vomit?) on the bedspread, and we found empty water and liquor...

Long story short, here is my 2 cents: room tile was filthy, carpet needed cleaning, BALCONY did NOT lock (called rental company and they told me to wedge a pole in the door), front door frame broken (so front door could easily be pushed open), something running out under the frig, bathroom floors (all rugs actually) gross and nasty, couch...
