Basic budget beachfront condo. These condos are individually owned, upgraded, and decorated. That means the the condos can greatly differ. You really don't know what you're getting unless you've stayed there before. Our owners had put in brand new granite countertops, flatscreen TVs, and tile floor. However, hadn't made the basic upgrade from the contractor grade doors and molding. This may sound silly, but it makes the entire place appear "cheap". There was mold in each shower. One night, we witnessed a gigantic roach crawling across the floor from under the sofa. The unit wasn't cleaned well when we arrived. Kitchen was well stocked, which is good because there is no snack bar or place to get food within walking distance so plan on hitting the grocery. One elevator for each building - recommend getting a 1st or 2nd floor unit as the elevator was being serviced for an entire day one day while we were there. When we booked, we were told that Building C was the newest building, so we stayed there. However, it is still worn. You can find other, newer places in PCP for the same price. Nothing for kids except the small kiddie pool. This would be perfect for a family with older kids that doesn't require many amenities. Two pools, very small kiddie pool, even smaller hottub. Best part - very short walk to the beach. Security guards extremely nice, front desk staff extremely rude. The garbage receptacles were always full. There is no recycling. We were told that if we wanted to recycle, we could take our stuff to Walmart. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

I have stayed at the Summerhouse several times over the years. I have found it to be a very nice place to stay and have only one complaint. The sliding patio doors on most units I have stayed in, will not close completely, thus letting in a lot of outside noise. Each room has a sliding glass door in the master bedroom, so all night long you can hear any conversation that is going on outside on the beach or in the pool area. If you are a light sleeper it can be bothersome. Also if someone in the room above or to the side of you opens their sliding door while you are sleeping, it makes a loud rumbling noise. Everything else was very nice, 2 pools and plenty of parking. If the sliding doors would be updated with quieter, better closing doors, it would change my rating from avg to excellent.

The Summerhouse is a great place to stay. My husband and I took a weekend trip 1/2012 to PCB and stayed at the Summerhouse. This is the second time we have stayed there. The other time was a few years back with our teenage girls and my mom. Each time I stay somewhere else I always say that we should have stayed at the Summerhouse. The condo rooms (no matter which ones) are so nice and decorated comfortably. Great pools, hot tub and very close to Schooners beach club/restaurant. Great location on the beach and away from all the hustle and bustle. David the security guard was awesome. We got there late and he checked us in and talked to us all weekend long. Great guy. Everyone is so nice and inviting....awesome stay.. Thank you Summerhouse staff and David, you all are awesome. Can't wait to see you again in the fall. Amy and Craig, LaFayette, GA.

My husband and I and our 13 year old son and 7 year old grand daughter stayed here from October 8 to the 15th of 2011. The unit was gorgeous, the staff, Cindy, was warm and friendly, the maintence man , Mike was quick on a little repair that needed to be taken care of in the master bath, and David the night security man was so sweet. The units are very well maintained and anything you need is addressed promptly. It is a very quite area, as mentioned earlier all radios or any type of music player is to be worn with headphones. They have two large outdoor pools, one which is heated. A small baby pool and one hot tub. The gazebo is wonderfu to sit under to get out of the sun or to go under if a rain develops. Butterflies were all over this complex and that was in itself something beautiful to see. We watched dolphins play in the gulf and watched the many different types of boats sail by. The beaches are so clean and so family friendly. I would highly recommend this condo resort to everyone! We stayed in building C in room 612. We choose the C building so that we would have morning sun but not all day sun. It was perfect in every way. We kept our master bedroom sliding glass door open a bit each night so we could hear the waves crash upon the beach and we awoke each morning to waves and sea gulls. It was picture perfect in every way.

Room Tip: The B building gets the afternoon sun The C building gets the morning sun Not sure about the A bui...

we stayed at the summerhouse 6/18/2011-6/25/2011,,first i will list the good part,the complex is very well maintained,and all the rooms have a pool and ocean view,the complex is not to big,the two pools are clean. and location is close to all shops,resturants,ect. now the bad ,the room we had needed some up dates,carpet,beds,furniture,doors, and so on,there were no bugs we saw, there we lots of kids,ours are all grown,the beach was packed. there were pop up canopys all up and down the beach that people leave up all night,and even some that never take them down,when they leave,there are also the wooden rental chairs that the city owns strung up and down the beachs,to myself thats an eyesore,but i realize its income for the panama city. i would never go back in peak season because of the crowds,but i will return there again.i guess iam a little spoiled from going to the allinclusives in mexico ,and seeing their uncluddered beaches and mega swimming pools,and beautiful hotels.

Room Tip: buildings A AND B are the newest.
