About Megan Hughes

I love the beach, especially Panama City Beach! I am an avid genealogist and quilter. My husband, Mark, and I have three children, the youngest of which is a freshman in college. We are enjoying being empty nesters!

Megan Hughes purchased this condo in 2010

Why Megan Hughes chose Florida Panhandle

After looking for a spacious condo with a great view, I walked into this condo and fell in love. It is huge! There is an incredible view up the coast as well as the great view of the ocean. I smile every time I walk in the door.

What makes this condo unique

The size is a great benefit of this condo. You can hove lots of people but have plenty of room for them to sit together and dine together without being crowded. The furnishings are high end, not your normal beach condo fare.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Lovely Home with Excellent Attention to Needs

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 stayed in this home during the last week of September. The home was exactly as described. All concerns were immediately handled, above and beyond the expected. This home is so nice and the views were amazing. If we have another large family gathering, we will be back. Thank you.

Beautiful wrap-around view of Gulf - but not much beach!

  • 4 of 5

Overall this property is lovely and I would recommend it to anyone to rent again based on it's large size and beautiful gulf view! Love how the owner decorated the space too! We also loved the close proximity to Pier Park. The Tidewater guest relations desk and even the building workers were all so very friendly and helpful. The unit had extra beach towels which was a nice add and a closet full of pool/beach items which was really great. Thanks!!

The pool is very nice too, but I am a beach person. The saddest thing about the Tidewater is that they have VERY LITTLE beach. Not sure what is going on with beach erosion in this area, but there is little room for anyone else on the beach except for the lounge chairs and umbrellas. I can't even being to imagine how crowded the beach must be during peak season. For this reason I probably won't rent at Tidewater again because I'm all about the beach.

This unit could have been better cleaned. Some of the throw pillows had stuff on them - yuck! The bath towels were basic and very rough. Wish there were cleaning supplies provided. And the pantry door was difficult to open/close - kept getting stuck. This is a large condo (capable of sleeping 10+) so I think the outside balcony needs to have seating to accommodate at least 6-8 people. We had six people staying and two of the outside chairs were so damaged from age/wear that they really are a danger to sit in. They need to be removed. We only had seating for 5 on the balcony which made it difficult to visit with everyone.

It was also a pain to have to go down to the chair rental company each morning to reserve our chairs. You should be able to tell the chair rental folks that you are there for the week and not have to come down each day. I know the owner probably can't do anything about that, but during peak season this would be an awful wait, so be prepared. And, the weekend chair rental crew were downright hateful - not friendly at all! The rest of week the others were fine. And renters need to know that this condo/chair rental outfit only has lounge chairs and umbrellas - - no chairs which is something we were not aware of.

I didn't mean for this review to sound so negative because it truly is a lovely condo and that's why I rated it a 4, but I go to the beach at least twice a year and have very high expectations for each rental I consider returning to again the following year.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the size and decorations in the condo. It truly is a large and comfortable space for larger groups. There is plenty of space for everyone. I'm sorry that things were in need of repair when you arrived. We have had a full schedule of bookings and were only able to recently get in and take care of some of the issues you brought up. We have a new deck bistro table and chairs and other single chairs on the balcony. I am sorry the cleaning wasn't up to par. I have just replaced the cleaning service because of such complaints. I truly want the condo to be in top shape for each visitor. I'm sure you could tell by the furnishings that I bought quality furniture for the living room and elsewhere. Your comfort is my top priority. I'm very disappointed in the beach service employees. I have paid for this service each year and this is the first year I've had complaints about their service. Unfortunately, they really can't assign you a seat for the whole week because you may or may not go down each day and that would tie up a chair someone else could use. They provide service at many condos in Panama City Beach and I believe it is the same policy all over the beach. You are right, they are lounge chairs with an umbrella. I do have extra beach chairs in the closet that you could have used. Tidewater usually has a very large beach. When there are tropical storms and other weather conditions it actually does affect the size of the beach. Unfortunately, you came at a time when the beach was affected. I hope you will come to try it out again.

Beautiful Large Condo

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation this year was spent in a new area for us on the Florida Panhandle at Tidewater Resort. We were pleasantly surprised to see that what is presented online concerning this condo is absolutely correct.

It was large enough for 6 adults and 2 children and no one felt cramped in the space. It has a lovely balcony with lots of room but the deck furniture does need some updating. Every morning was spent on the balcony drinking coffee, eating breakfast and watching for dolphins.

The kitchen is well equipped and has a large griddle and a large electric skillet which made cooking for all of us easy. The bedrooms were all nicely furnished. The dining/living room was spacious and comfortable with added seating at the counter overlooking the kitchen area.

The resort has 3 pools with plenty of lounge chairs and the beach area has first come-first serve lounge chairs with umbrellas. A jet ski rental is available right on the beach and we enjoyed an hour in the gulf riding the waves and saw some dolphins up close.

When we arrived a light was out in a bedroom ceiling and it was promptly taken care of by the onsite maintenance man.

The only problem we encountered had to do with the elevators in the building. We arrived at the busiest time of the year [mid-July] and the elevators were very difficult to use. We had to wait 10-20 minutes or longer to use them and one member of our party was unable to use the stairs so they were stuck on the 8th floor until one became available. It was very inconvenient and frustrating and no one wanted to go back into the condo during the day because of the elevator situation. We had to pack up lots of snacks and drinks each day to avoid using them and no one enjoyed having to climb the 8 flights of stairs to go back to get something that was forgotten. There are several bathrooms located on the first floor in the resort building so that was helpful.

Our overall experience with the rental itself was AMAZING but the elevator situation is something we would definitely take into consideration.

Relaxing. Felt like home.

  • 4 of 5

Our family travels to PCB every year for summer vacation. And every year we've stayed at a different location ... Not anymore! This condo was perfect for our large group! Upon waking in, we were pleasantly surprised! The picture doesn't do it justice. I can't say enough positive things about it... Nicely decorated, clean, full size washer/dryer, nicely stocked kitchen, working refrigerator, beach supplies, excellent view of the ocean... The list is endless! The only minor changes I would recommend to the owner.. Upgrade the mattresses in the master bedrooms. They are extremely firm and very hard to sleep on. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We've definitely found our go to spot while staying in Panama City. Thank you to the owners for allowing us the privledge of staying in their beautiful home!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you found all that you needed. We would love to have you return. I'm sorry you weren't happy with the beds. The memory foam mattresses are actually very popular with our guests. I've had many inquire as to where to buy them. There are other types of mattresses in the condo for those who don't like the memory foam. I'm glad everything else was well maintained, clean and fully furnished with all you would need for a beach get away. It is a large condo which allows groups like yours to have plenty of space to move around in and be comfortable. See you next summer.
