We enjoyed our stay very much. It was our first time to stay at Tidewater and room 1904

  • 5 of 5

Awesome views for miles. We saw so many stingrays swimming in close to the shore. Also, a pair of dolphins came pretty close by. It was so fun to sit out on the balcony with our coffee and just relax and enjoy the beautiful view. The weather was great, mostly in the 60s around Christmas time. The location was excellent being just a few minutes from shopping areas and restaurants. Pineapple Willy’s and Sharky’s offered good seafood and a fun beachside setting, but we thought the raw oysters and grilled fish at The Back Porch in Pier Park were the best ever. When we didn’t feel like going out for meals it was nice to be able to cook in the kitchen which had all the pots and pans you’d ever need. I grilled up 2 pounds of Salmon and roasted potatoes & carrots in the oven. The family loved it. I think we ate way too much on this vacation but I guess that’s what you’re supposed to do. Nice long walks on the beach help out with that. Also, just sitting in the sand barefoot is a nice way to pass some time. Maybe we’ll return sometime when the temperature is in the 80s so we can swim in the water. The other kind of neat thing is that Tidewater has a movie theater on the ground floor which shows a movie every couple of days. We happened to see Transformers 5 while we were there. Kind of cool to take an elevator down to go see a movie. People show up in pajamas and blankets. It was really a family feel. So, yes, we enjoyed the whole experience of staying at Tidewater, room 1904. Fantastic views, large fully equipped kitchen, clean fresh bathrooms, convenient washer/dryer, comfy sofas and beds, plenty of room. And, we would definitely recommend it to others. You will love it!

Condo was nice and clean. Had everything we needed. Price was amazing. Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. View was great. Enjoyed the nicer furniture on the balcony. My daughters loved the bunk beds. Would definitly stay here again. Had no issues whatsoever with the elevators as some have written about in other reviews. However the building didn't seem to be very busy as we went in november. Had a great week with family!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was super nice and very clean. I was very pleased with the unit. Mr. Vafinis was very nice and checked on us upon arrival to make sure all was okay, and to reassure of the weather since Tropical Storm Nate was arriving at the same time we were!! Thankfully, Nate didn't last long and we had a lovely week!

Great view; spacious condo

  • 4 of 5

Booking process was very simple with owner. Owner has a good system for scheduling and refunded the damage deposit the day after we left, which was the fastest turnaround time I have ever experienced.

Condo was very nice. Had a great view from the balcony of the fire works set off from the Pier at Pier Park during the pirate festival.

We arrived at the condo on 8/31/17 and stayed thru 9/4/17.

Condo 1904 was awesome. Clean and had EVERYTHING we needed.

The view was amazing!!!!

The king size bed was very comfy.

The beach was great and the beach chair rentals being included was an extra plus. People (including myself) stand in line at the booth at 8 am-it opens at 8:30, to get chairs. They're first come first serve, so get out there early to have your choice.

There is a gym, 2 pools, sauna, hot tub, vending machines, Starbucks, mini tiki bar, beach toy rentals.

The only bad thing - not complaint- is the elevators took forever and when I opened the door to the stairs the alarm sounded. not a big deal.

Will definitely stay here again. Central location is within walking distance to a lot and Uber drivers were readily available.
