About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 13-15)

Directly on the beach. Chair rentals pre-paid. This nearly new 2250 SF corner end unit is the best of all units in Tidewater. Sleeps 13-15. We are counting the bunk area as the 4th bedroom. Everyone that has stayed here said they loved it. The wrap around corner balcony provides a full view of the Gulf looking straight out from the balcony while the pool is located directly below on the end of the building. This is the only stack that is direct gulf front with any view of the pool. From the wrap around the corner balcony, you are close enough to throw a baseball in the Gulf or a ping pong ball in the pool (but don't). The photos tell the story. The biggest draw back to most condos is that during the busy season, the elevators can be a little slow. No Problem! You can walk down one level to the garage walkover or down four levels to the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Tidewater Beach Resort:: This is the only unit with direct gulf front and pool visibility. Grandma can sit on the balcony and watch kids in the gulf and the pool without getting out of her chair. The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Year Purchased: 2009 - You don't need a car. Everything you need is within walking distance. Owner Description/Comments: I bought the condo in July 2009. I looked for over a year for the perfect unit for my brothers, sisters and my own kids and grandkids. This is the perfect condo. If you stay here, you will see why I choose it over all the others. Steve LaForge.

Tidewater is the closest condo on the beach to the new Panama City Beach Airport. McDonald's, Arby's and Pizza Hut are less than a block away. Dusty's seafood is two blocks away and is the best Seafood in PCB. With Pier Park one direction and a Winn Dixie grocery store a half mile the other direction, you can walk to either one in 15 minutes. Once you have arrived at Tidewater, you really don't need a car. Just relax and enjoy the beautiful blue water. Expand the map on this site and you can see how close we are to new airport, Pier Park and the Ball Parks.

Onsite parasailing, jet ski, kayak and canoe rental. Tidewater has over 600 feet of Gulf frontage. Huge wrap around balcony on corner unit. It doesn't get any better than this.

This 2250 SF unit is the largest unit in Tidewater. The 90 gallon hot water heater never runs out of hot water. Everything is first class. The living room, dining room and kitchen all run together, so a large family can spread out but still be together in the same area. If you are flying in, I keep a Lincoln Navigator(seats 7) at Tidewater in the parking garage. It can be made available if you are over 26 with their own proof of insurance for extra.

Excellent for large families.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the most nicest and spacious condo that we have stayed in. We have a large family with two toddlers and we fit in this condo perfectly. The condo was very clean. The location is also fantastic as well. Steve is very accommodating and fantastic to work with!! We will most definitely be staying in this condo again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephanie. I'm glad you liked it. I try to under promise and over deliver. I do believe it is as nice as any condo in PCB. The location and views are as good as it gets. I hope to see you again soon.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about our stay at Tidewater Beach Resort Unit 301. We had plenty of room for our large family of 14. The unit was clean & well-maintained. The kitchen was well stocked for big groups & the beds were comfy. We really felt at-home. Steve was awesome to work with -- he responded to our questions quickly & made sure we had everything we needed. And he's still trying to help me locate a ring that I lost. The beach umbrellas & chairs were an added bonus. It was probably our best vacation ever. We will be back!

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Condo. Amazing. It is a lot bigger in person than what the pictures look on VRBO. We loved that this unit is on the third floor. Just one floor up from the crossover from the parking garage. Tidewater is a very nice facility. Very Secure. I have never stayed at a place that had so many security guards working all hours. Wonderful fitness area. The pools are very nice and larger than what I expected from the pictures. The only negative thing about Tidewater is they should have installed more elevators. With this unit being on the third floor it wasn't much of an issue for us. Loved that it's close to Pier Park. Steve was excellent to work with in every way. He provided us with excellent umbrella locations/extra chairs. It was wonderful not to have to bring beach chairs from home. I would definitely stay here again. I also loved the patio doors that lead out onto the balconies. They are very heavy and I found this to be a plus with small grandchildren with us they couldn't open the door and go out on the balcony by themselves. The balcony is very secure and safe for little ones. The wrap around balcony was awesome. My mother was with us and she loved the balcony.

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo had lots of room and was perfect for our family. The owner and his brother were wonderful to us. We loved having the beach chairs set up and ready for us! Being on the 3rd floor was a bonus because the elevators were always crowded. We will be back!!

Very clean and open. Furnishings were all up to date.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the condo. The only issues we had were the parking arrangements( across the street in a parking garage),very slow elevators(we used the stairs since it was 3rd floor), and all the hot tubs were always full of small kids.

This unit was PERFECT for my family's vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This unit was very large, was located in the BEST spot on the property, overlooked the beach and pool from the large balcony, and was clean and well supplied. The elevators on the property are very slow due to the large number of units, but the location made taking the stairs that short distance very easy. The property is located within walking distance of restaurants and shopping but enough off the beaten path that the pool and beach were never crowded. The owner was always available and very helpful. Parking was provided across the street and the covered walkover from the garage provided easy access. The beach chairs and umbrellas were supplied by the owner and were an added plus. I highly recommend this rental.
