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.

We loved everything!!

  • 5 of 5

The beach setup was the best we have ever seen. Two pair of chairs and 2 umbrellas with extra chairs available at no additional cost. What's not to like about that. The third floor access was perfect. McDonald's right across the street was pretty cool to.

Best unit at Tidewater by far!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Tidewater 301! The unit is very large. We had a total of 15 people, 9 were kids, and we had plenty of room and slept very comfortable!!! The beach chair setup was the best we have ever had! Usually you have to go down every morning and wait in line to reserve your chairs, but not with unit 301. The owner also owns some of the units in the condo beside Tidewater, so your double beach chair setup is over there, which makes it very nice because you are not stuck in a huge crowd of people. We absolutely loved it!! You can also use some extra chairs and sand and beach toys from his other condo. It's a huge plus, especially if you have kids!! The owner is very responsive and extremely easy to deal with. We had zero problems during our stay. We have stayed in other units at Tidewater, but this unit is the best!! Can't wait to go back!!!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed staying in Unit 301 at Tidewater. We had 11 people, ranging in ages 3 to 72, with room to spare. We were also fortunate enough to meet the Owner. Cannot say enough great things. We will book again.
