I am very disappointed to say that I feel I was ripped off by Gulf Crest Condos. They kept $100 of my security deposit because they claimed I did not return all of my keys. I checked out before the office opened so they provided me an envelope and drop box. All of the keys and wrist bands would not... More

We stayed in this condo 5/17-5/23, 2014. It looks like the pictures when you walk in but there is so much more to be told about this condo. The beds are torture to sleep on. There was a hole punched in the closet door in the second bedroom and the towel rod pulled off in the second bathroom. The second... More

I loved Gulfcrest but we too rented from Jon Caldwell and when we got to the room to check in, the people were still in the room cooking and the lady was drunk, she said oh well we will be out of the room in a little bit. We tried calling Jon and never could get him to return our... More

Just finished 4 nights at Majestic Towers in Panama City Beach. The condo was so very dirty and when we called about it, it took 23 hours to get someone to come attend to the maintenance items and the dirt. I will not give details but I will never use this company or condo owner again. And I suggest you... More

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
