Our family stayed in room 301 for a week in April & it was great! We felt safe in the location, gated complex with covered parking & access codes to enter from the beach. Room decor was updated & nice. 3 king beds were comfy & our little ones enjoyed the bunk beds in the closet. Kitchen was well equipped...

Enjoyed The Gulf Crest. Very Secure. Gated condo and pool area. Private beach. Beach chairs available. Tiki Bar with 2 pools and 2 hot tubs. Very clean. Rent through the complex not an individual. Little recourse if you have a problem. Rented 903. 2 bedrooms. Floor was sticky but maid came in and cleaned it. Great view of the beach.

This was our first 'big' family vacation, and our first time to Florida. We are from Texas, where we don't see beaches like they have in Florida so we wanted to see clear waters and white sandy beaches. I was recommended Gulf Crest Condominiums by a friend, and they were absolutely wonderful. They did not disappoint at all! We stayed...

We again rented a condo here from Eileen Meyer. The condo 1902 is a beautiful 2 bedroom unit with a good-sized balcony. The beach is gorgeous white sand. There are several restaurants within walking distance, and many others nearby to drive to. It was a bit too cool and windy to swim in the pools or the ocean, but we...

We stayed in 1903 and it was very comfortable and well-appointed. It is decorated in a way that is not over the top like a lot of condos in the area. We really felt at home. The condo has an amazing balcony and a lot of space throughout. Kitchen has everything you would possibly need and was spotless. The bed...

This was our 4th stay at Gulf Crest Unit 707. It has 3 bedrooms and all 3 have king size beds. It is time for a mattress upgrade in all of the bedrooms, but we all got a good nights sleep every night. The condo is well appointed and has the perfect view of the beach and especially the sunset....

We were in room #604. The view was wonderful. Very spacious. 3 tvs but the ones in the bedrooms were very old. The furniture was old and in need of replacement. The floor was very dirty. I wouldn't let my child walk around without socks or shoes on. Her socks all turned black on the bottom. Not sure what that...

We really enjoyed staying at Gulf Crest. Stayed in 207. Even going to PCB for 50 years. Our previous spots were getting run down. Location was great as was owner and office. The grounds were well maintained. Will the beach chair guy was friendly.

I've been visiting the Gulf Crest for years, and I've always loved the home-y feeling. The covered parking deck is very convenient, especially in hot weather, and the pool deck is very spacious. Also, it's in a great location, and great for families. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay during our annual family PCB trip!
