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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I just returned from a week at Gulf Crest and have to say I was pretty disappointed in our rental unit 1102. Our reservation was made several months ago through Gulf Crest as they owned that unit. Between the time our reservation was made and when we arrived the unit was sold. The unit was freshly painted and the furniture...
