About the property

2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8



The Great Room & Master Bedroom overlook the Gulf’s emerald waters in our 1,593-sq-ft luxurious platinum-level condo. The Great Room's leather couch opens to a Queen bed and there's a 47-inch flat-screen TV with Blu-ray CD/DVD player (accepts non-Blue-Ray DVDs, too!).

The Master bedroom has a dramatic four-poster King bed and 32-inch LCD TV and CD/DVD combo. The Master Bath features a huge walk-in closet, soaking tub and separate shower. The guest bedroom easily accommodates a Queen bed and twin-over-full bunk beds! Opposite the Queen is a 32-inch flat-screen LCD TV with CD/DVD player. Each bunk bed has its own TV with built-in DVD player and individual headsets. And we've got a porta-crib tucked away for those with an infant.

The kitchen is fully equipped and there’s a separate laundry room with washer/dryer.

Tidewater has indoor & outdoor pools and is in walking distance to Pier Park.

Dining in? You can make anything from a pancake breakfast to a four-course sit-down dinner. The dining table seats six comfortably and there are four bar chairs at the counter. If dining out is your preference, you’ll find no shortage of outstanding restaurants to suit all tastes. (We even provide a helpful list and sample menus). Additionally, Tidewater's onsite restaurant is open for your convenience!

All our furniture is of the highest quality. All bedding is deluxe to ensure a restful night’s sleep. And our blackout curtains make sure your sleep is uninterrupted; let the glorious sun in when you’re ready for it! Stay connected with free high-speed Internet and feel free to use our phone at no charge for local calls. There’s a separate laundry room with washer and dryer in the unit, as well, so you can pack lightly.

Swim in either of two 4,200-square-foot Lagoon Pools or a magnificent heated indoor pool. Relax in one of the Roman Spa hot tubs or at the poolside Tiki Bars. Work out in a 4,300-square-foot, state-of-the-art fitness center with health bar. And enjoy the most spectacular sunsets you’ve ever seen as you sip a cool beverage on your private beachfront balcony. Or wake up to a splendid sunrise and watch as the dolphins frolic before your eyes.

You don’t have to worry about packing board games because we provide Scrabble, Monopoly and a host of others. Heading out to the beach? We’ve got your beach umbrellas, cooler, beach mats, kickboards and sand toys— everything you need for a day of fun and sun at the most beautiful beach in the country! We also offer a FREE Beach Setup with your reservation, including two lounge chairs and an umbrella/canopy each day of your stay, weather permitting.

Tidewater is PCB's premier luxury condo resorts and boasts a 5,000-square-foot conference center, an on-site movie and media center, game room, covered walkway from parking deck to condo, seven high-speed elevators and 636 feet of beachfront! It’s also just 1/3 of a mile from the fabulous, upscale, million-square-foot Pier Park Shopping Complex offering entertainment, restaurants, shops and a 16-screen movie theater. Tenants include such favorites as Target, Panera Bread, Longhorn Steakhouse, Dillard’s, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Starbucks, Ann Taylor, Chico’s, Jos. A. Bank, The Walking Company, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works and more.

There’s no end to activities for all ages in Panama City Beach. Shipwreck Island, a water park with something for everyone, is right up the street. Kids love the incredible Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum. And the new WonderWorks, largest interactive game and scientific display facility anywhere, has everyone talking!

About Carol Goldberg

Stan was a dentist for many years and Carol was a magazine editor in New York before both retired to Louisville, Kentucky, to be close to their kids and grandkids. Could there be a better reason? Now Stan does landscape photography and displays his work at juried art shows around the country. When not on 'the circuit,' their most enjoyable experiences are traveling, spending time with the grandkids, or relaxing at their Tidewater condo.

Carol Goldberg purchased this condo in 2007

Why Carol Goldberg chose Florida Panhandle

We think Panama City Beach is ideal for families and Tidewater Beach Resort is so well located on the quieter, west side of PCB in walking distance to Pier Park. But whether it's just the two of us, or we're there with the kids, we always enjoy the great restaurants, the amazing sunsets and all the wonderful activities that are so close by. We are never bored in PCB!

What makes this condo unique

At nearly 1,600 sq. ft., our condo is the largest two-bedroom in Tidewater. The feeling is always spacious, cheerful and airy, as opposed to dark and cramped. We offer a rate with no cleaning fee and no resort registration fee on stays of five nights or more. We have worked hard to leave no stone unturned in terms of comfort and convenience, including free beach service (March thru October). Combine that with Tidewater's indoor and outdoor pools, huge, gorgeous beach, movie theater, game room, restaurant— you name it! — and we believe you couldn't have a bad time if you tried!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Carol and Stan,

Im SO sad our vacation has to end. First of all, thank you for being so accommodating with our early check in request. Carol, you are lovely to deal with and we appreciate your attention to detail. We had such a wonderful and relaxing time at your condo. The location and the view are perfect! We traveled with our 9 and a half month old twins and found the condo to be baby friendly. The twins loved pulling up on the ottomans and sitting on the balcony in their super seats. The condo is very nice and well stocked. The umbrellas and beach toys were a nice touch as was the washer and dryer. Tidewater really is a very nice place to stay. We had to call maintenance to change a lightbulb and they were prompt and friendly. We can't wait to return and hope to stay at your place again.

Beautiful accommodations, perfect location, perfect beach front!

  • 5 of 5

Carol, your condo is so beautiful, so comfortable and just perfect. The location is spot on for everything anyone would love to do. Right in front of the beach, the balcony afforded us amazing views of the ocean, shopping is just a few blocks down the road and there are amazing restaurants up and down front beach drive. It truly was perfect!

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

The wait time for an elevator was absurd. It's great that you receive two chairs and an umbrella with your stay, but to stand in line every morning to ensure that you get one is ridiculous

Owner's Response: Though I understand about the elevators, and I am sorry you encountered that, I don't think it should reflect on our condo itself, as we have no control over the elevators. If you loved our condo, it would be good, and kind of you, to express those thoughts, as well. The elevators are sometimes a problem in the peak summer months, but not always, and I believe the problem is being worked on. Your anger may be appropriate, but taking it out on us is probably not.

Very nice but need some complex revisions

  • 3 of 5

This condominium was absolutely beautiful.The decor was beautiful and would like to stay there again except for a couple of things. The elevator wait was horrendous and did not like having to wear those orange bracelets everywhere for the entire week. Also, they had too many regimented umbrellas with chairs,it took up the whole beach area in front of the condo,which left limited space. I did like the close proximity to the pier and all the shopping and restaurants there.

Owner's Response: While I'm sorry you encountered elevator problems, didn't like wearing the required wristbands, and didn't like the way the beach chair seating was laid out, I don't think that we, as condo owners, can be "blamed" for any of that. During the busy summer season, these are issues you are likely to encounter at any of the better, high-end resorts in PCB. I AM GLAD YOU LIKED OUR CONDO SO MUCH AND I WISH YOU HAD NOT GIVEN US ONLY THREE STARS BASED ON THINGS WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER. That said, the elevator situation is being corrected, we provide a free beach package to guarantee our guests a place on the beach whenever they want to be there, and the wristbands are what keep non-guests who don't belong there from taking over the resort facilities.
