The pictures looked fine. We got there and it was terrible. The room was dirty.......floors, counters, dirty sheets, no pullout sofa sheets, blankets, pillows, no pillows in one of the masters, electrical plate... More

We put a deposit down in January 2014 through Emerald Coast Destinations for our summer vacation 2015. We booked a unit at Treasure Island. Sent in our final payment a few weeks before the trip. Drove all the way to Panama City only to find that the condo had been rented to someone else. Emerald Coast Destinations had failed to... More

I was on VRBO searching for a place to stay and they would right back rude messages to me and when I called the gentleman was rude and hung up on me. I will find out the owner and let him now what is employees are doing. I will NOT rent from them at all.

I brought a newly graduated group of seniors after graduation. Room 2201. Rented it from VRBO. There needs to be about four more floors to the parking garage. People would be more than willing to pay extra for a spot. Elevators are pretty slow. Best thing was the location. It is close to everything the kids want to do. The... More

Our 7 day stay at Gulf Crest was amazing! All the amenities, 2 huge pools, breath taking view of the Gulf of Mexico. This rates definitely a 10. Highly recommend Staying at Gum Crest if your headed to Panama City Beach,Fl. The weather was perfect all week. All ready wanting to go back.
