About ILia & ELina Kolesnikov

We dreamed of having a vacation beach home for years. Both of us are originally from Russia and we had a chance to travel all over Europe to many exotic beaches before coming to the United States. We fell in love with charming Panama City Beach resort from the first sight and started looking for a vacation home. We found a condo that was kid-friendly, had a great neighborhood, was located in a newly-built resort, had modern amenities, and had so much space - a requirement for us and our three little munchkins.

ILia & ELina Kolesnikov purchased this condo in 2009

Why ILia & ELina Kolesnikov chose Florida Panhandle

The setting is spectacular. The sunsets are amazing as well as the sounds of the waves and wild life below. There is an awesome view of the Pier and you can sit on the balcony and watch the dolphins and boats in the distance. Tidewater is a luxurious resort with pristine beach and great amenities. You will find everything you might need for your perfect vacation right here: two huge Lagoon Pools with Jacuzzi, heated Indoor Pool, Sauna, Steam Room, Fitness Center, Theatre, Restaurant, and much more. Spending a vacation at the beach satisfies our needs for the salt air, white sand and turquoise blue water. It's a place like no other in Florida. The ocean-front view is magnificent! It is simply breathtaking, and none of the pictures can capture the beauty of the nature well enough to show it. We love spending time in our vacation home in PCB and we hope you will enjoy your stay in our condo as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

This condo is our vacation home, and we decorated it with love and care. We chose a tropical design because we feel comfortable in bright happy colors; we think it is a great getaway from a sophisticated look of a city. The condo has modern appliances, fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV/Cable/DVDs in each room, and most importantly, it is child-proof. It is the ideal place to relax and unwind or have the time of your life as you enjoy the many nearby activities. When you feel like exploring, take a short drive to one of the many exquisite beaches along the shore. Panama City Beach offers a variety of entertainment. There is something to do for every member of your family. While you might enjoy snorkeling, diving or parasailing, your kids can visit animal parks, pirate ships, giant slingshots, or go-carts. Are you a golfer? There are five championship golf courses in the area. There are museums, movie theaters, great shopping. And yes, we are only 1/3 of a mile from the famous Pier Park!! When the sun goes down, PCB lights up with an enticing array of after-dark entertainment options. There is a glittering variety of wine and sport bars, restaurants, dance clubs, jazz venue and much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Copy of guest reviews from our listing (#270155): I definitely would recommend this property to all of my family and friends. The condo was beautifully decorated, clean and so comfortable and roomy. The kitchen was very well equipped and I plan to purchase a big frying pan just like the one you have! The location is also very nice - close to restaurants and shopping. I was concerned about being on the 25th floor as the last condo I stayed in the elevators were so slow and stayed so busy. There was absolutely no waiting for the elevators and they zipped you up so quickly. I loved the view and it was so quiet and relaxing. The staff at the condo, especially the security officers were very professional and courteous and I felt very safe there with my family. Most of all, I appreciated ILia and Elina's hospitality. They responded so quickly to my emails/ phone calls and they seemed to try and make sure that everything was made especially special for us from making sure we made it there and checking to see that we were happy with the condo and even telling us how to get to the grocery store. Thank you for making us feel welcome in your home.

We couldn't have had a more beautiful condo. The view is breath taking! From the balcony every morning we would watch the dolphins; the evening the stunning sunsets. We have rented other houses and condos, but the owner, Mr.Kolesnikov, is one of the most friendly, helpful, wonderful owner. When contacting him he always answered right away. Tidewater Resort was very clean, and their employees very friendly, and helpful. The condo was supplied with all the necessary items to ensure a wonderful trip. Being this our niece's first visit we took her to various points of fun and interest. St. Andrew Park/Shell Island, Pier Park, M.B. Miller County Pier, Russell Fields City Pier, to name a few. Definitely a place for a repetitive vacation! Thank you Mr. Kolesnikov!!

Your condo was beautiful and it fit all of us very well and the view was amazing

  • 5 of 5

We felt the condo and the resort was very nice. The price was just right and we had perfect weather to top it off. Walking into the condo at first glance was very nicely arranged and organized. Alot of space for 2 families to be comfortable. Having the chairs and beach toys available was great since we drove and it was hard to bring those things.

However, being that this is your 2nd home we all took pride in it as if we were at home, I do feel that your cleaning staff didn't exactly do a complete cleaning to prepare for the next guests. You can tell that if the last guests did a decent job cleaning it was left that way. There are no cleaning products for the guests so i would hope that cannot be possibly what the owners would expect. The fridge ice and water dispenser is very dirty, almost like mold or splashed drinks. There was also a used feminine product in the guest closet that surely would have been noticed by a cleaning staff. I know some of these things are minor but knowing that you expect the renters to treat your home with respect as they do, the preparation for the guests should come with the same respect. We had an awesome week in your condo and Panama City Beach was absolutely beautiful. I'd love to come back again. Probably go for a condo on a floor closer to the ground haha!

Owner's Response: Jaimee, we're glad to know that you and your family had a great time during your stay in our condo! We really appreciate your detailed feedback, and we just wished that cleaning issues were brought to our attention right upon your arrival, without waiting until later, so our housekeepers can address it promptly. We also asked the cleaning manager to "inspect" the units prior to guest arrival to avoid any overlooked items. Best regards, and we'll be happy to host ya'll again! -ILia & Elina

Very spacious and clean

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very spacious and exactly as the photos. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were roomy. The entire facility was very neat, had lots of amenities, and the security was excellent. We felt very safe during our stay. The only reasons that I can't give 5 stars is that the Wi-fi was very slow, the one corner shower was a little too small for "full size" folks, and the elevators were a little noisy due to them being just outside the bedroom windows. If you are a light sleeper, then a box fan helps drown out the elevator noise. The owner supplies the beach gear and chairs, but most of this equipment is in poor or broken condition. I suggest you bring your own.

Owner's Response: Stanley, we're glad that you and your family enjoyed the condo and resorts amenities! Sorry for the wifi issues, and I wish you let me know about it during your stay - iPacket Networks is the local internet provider, and their live techs support folks a very responsive, and most likely they could help on the spot if I would call them! Also, we'll be replacing the beach chairs shortly, so it'll be ready for the next season! Best regards, and we'll be glad to host your family again! -ILia
