Renting a Gulf Crest condo puts you close to everything that matters - the beach, major attractions like amusement parks and restaurants/bars. Before you finalise your booking, among other things, pay close attention to the quality of the unit’s fittings and furnishings. Find out when/if the property was updated. Ask for the latest photos, so you get an accurate picture of the rental. And, of course, read the reviews!
