For a 2 bedroom condo, this place was incredibly spacious! It is an end unit and the balcony wraps from one bedroom, across the south and east doors and windows of the living room, all the way to the other bedroom.

Both bedrooms have king-size beds and there's still plenty of room in each for kids to sleep on the floor on cots or inflatable beds.

The living room couch folds out, but didn't look very comfortable for my buddy. There's also a love seat, accent chair and ottoman, and a recliner.

There are 2 bathrooms. The main bedroom has it's own and the other bedroom is connected to a bathroom with another door accessing the hallway.

Kitchen came equipped with the necessary cookware, cutlery, utensils, plates and bowls. The place did not have any paper towels and dish soap, so be sure to bring your own. You'll also want to bring cooking oil and salt & pepper. The dining room table sits adjacent to the living room with no walls or partitions so it really opens up the space.

There is a washer and dryer in the unit. Also, the front door's closet has many beach chairs, toys, fishing poles, etc. that the owner has left for folks to use.

Each room has a little TV and there's a very large TV in the common area. The only problem with the TV is that the remote cannot go down in channel or volume. I had to use the controls on the TV for turning down the volume or going back a channel. Also, some of the numbers on the remote do not work either.

Condo does have WiFi, however the password that the front desk gives you did not work. Luckily the router is sitting on the kitchen bar and the password listed on it's sticker worked.

The beach was very clean, apart from the occasional cigarette butt or bottle cap i found. Our room did not include any official condo beach chairs, but they are available for rent for $30 a day. There is also a volleyball net and jet ski rental available. There were a couple of pools and hot tub that were very clean that surrounded a very nice pavilion area tables and chairs. I do not remember seeing a grill down at the pool area, though. One thing to note is that there is a rule that personal beach items like chairs, tents, etc. cannot be left set up on the beach after 9pm. Most people packed theirs up and brought it up to their rooms or left outside their condo front doors or balconies. We packed ours up and put it close to the condo's jet skis up by the fence. No one confiscated our stuff so I guess our gamble worked out.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again! Wonderful place at a great price!

Room Tip: Get an end unit!

We have been coming to PCB for a long time. We have always preferred the Thomas dr. Area, this time was our first stay at summerhouse. We loved it so much we booked our next trip to PCB before leaving.Very well maintained facility, felt like home away from home.

We have stayed at the Summerhouse for the past 5 years. It gets better every time! The condo's are roomy and clean with great views and decorations. The staff is always friendly and helpful, it's right on the beach and family friendly. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!!!!!!

As I write this review, I am sitting on the balcony with a lovely breeze and breathtaking view!
My husband and I will have to force ourselves to leave tomorrow.
This vacation could not have been better.
The staff is friendly and effective. The condos, clean, comfortable, and beautiful.
Parking is easy. Pools and gazebo are steps away from the beach.
The location is near enough to everything, restaurants, stores, and bike rentals.
Yet it remains quiet and peaceful as well.
A perfect place to vacation.
#906,1106,1006,and 1115 are wrap around units. These are all well worth the extra money.
Each are maintained with loving care.

Room Tip: #1106,1006,906, and 1115 all have wrap around balconies with amazing views! These corner units are...

The staff here was friendly and helpful, and willing to help whenever we needed them. The facilities were very clean, and kept up well. The view is great, the condos themselves are very nice and decorated very beautifully. We will definitely be visiting again!!

Room Tip: Get a room on one of the side wings-beautiful views from EVERY direction on the side wings!

The Summerhouse has been a wonderful place to bring my family. The price was better than neighboring condos but the quality is just as good. Dreadfully, we are going home tomorrow but fortunately it's back to Rocky Top for this bunch.
