About Judy Stutts

We love Panama City Beach. Our six years old son loves playing on the white sand beach and finding sea shells. We purchased our beautiful condo in November 2012 after much researching and looking. Right after we first walked in here, we told our awesome realtor Gene Ursprung that we love this place. We take pride in making this condo our 'home away from home'. We hope our friends and guests love and enjoy this condo as much as we do.

Judy Stutts purchased this condo in 2012

Why Judy Stutts chose Florida Panhandle

We visited a friend's condo summer of 2011 and fell in love with Tidewater. The white sand beaches are fantastic and the amenities of Tidewater are top notch including indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, a sauna, beachfront exercise room, movie theater, covered parking, cable TV and wireless internet throughout the facilities. Tidewater beach resort is located at the west end of PCB. It is right on the beach with breathtaking front ocean view from the balcony and also is in close proximity to Pier Park where shopping, entertainment, restraunts and kids' playing park are all in one place. We love that we can walk to grocery store and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is located on the 5th floor which is preferred by many of our guests for not having to wait too long for the elevator. It has the largest floorplan of 1 bedroom plans. We have an amazing ocean front view from our balcony and the breathtaking sunset view over the ocean is also unforgettable.

We have free wireless internet and cable TV provided for the guests at our unit. In order for our guests to make the best of the white sand beach, we provide double chaise lounge chairs and umbrella at the beach during each day's stay from March through October.

Great Unit / Owner.

  • 4 of 5

We have absolutely zero complaints about our unit or owner. Everything was wonderful. The unit was clean and had plenty of dishes, towels, etc. Communication from the owner was quick and friendly.

Our only small issue was with the Tidewater and you will see the same complaints on other reviews - the elevator wait times are a little long, especially during check-in. Just be patient.Luckily this unit is on the 5th floor so it's not a big deal to take the stairs most of the time. We were with a group of 10 families and some had rooms much higher so the elevator issue was more pronounced for them.

One of the other reviews talks about the trash shoot being right outside the door but that was never an issue for us.

The owner provided beach chairs and an umbrella which was great. This allowed us to set up wherever we wanted along the beach.

I would recommend this unit as long as you know up front about the elevators.

Nice getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very nice. Loved the layout. Loved the balcony, it was like you were on top of the water. The only issue we had was the elevators but I guess that's any big hotel.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we hope you enjoyed your stay. There have been various complaints about the chair service from past guests. I am heading there this week to provide our own chairs and umbrella so you do not have to get up early to get a reasonable chair. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests experience so they can have a great vacation!

Never Again

  • 1 of 5

The owner of the condo unit was nice and he was very efficient in answering any questions I had prior to our booking. From our unit, the view of the ocean was wonderful. The condo itself was as the owner stated; however, the bedroom and bathrooms severely need updated. The master bed was very uncomfortable as well. The light bulbs in the master bedroom were out. The master bedroom is located right next to the hall entrance into the unit, so you hear everything outside and the trash chute for the entire floor is right across from your unit. The kitchen was very nice with plenty of cooking utensils. As far as Tidewater's is horrible! It is VERY dirty, especially the restrooms, the tiles on the floor have dislodged, the place needs extensive cleaning and updated. The front desk clerks were rude and always hard to locate. There were no bikes to utilize during our stay as advertised. It is a real challenge to purchase groceries and get them from the parking garage to your unit. The other reviews posted about elevator horror is TRUE. DO NOT PLAN on utilizing any bbq grill! They are not a covered charcoal grill nor gas grills. The grills are the same as you would find in any public state park. I am grateful that the beach chairs were included in our rental cost because the daily rate is $40.00 which is outrageous for the quality you receive. I also felt Pier Park is not what it is cracked up to be. Unfortunately, I will not rent in this area again and will go back to the western portion of PCB.

Softball / family vacation

  • 2 of 5

Condo is very nice. We are very thankful to be on the 5th floor. Elevators are a mess at tidewater, stairs were our best friends. Condo was perfect - beds comfortable. No complaints of the condo - but, could not tolerate lack of elevators. It is a very large resort - so, maybe it would help to stagger check in times. It was a mess coming in - but, after we got thru that it was ok. If you like a high rise with lots of people staying - this is the place for you. But, If you like less crowds and not four rows of beach chairs - then look elsewhere. Beach is beautiful - but crowded. Overall - loved condo, but not resort for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comments about our condo. Your elevator comments are shared by others at Tidewater as well as with other condos on the beach. While at the condo over Thanksgiving, I did see a note in the elevator stating that it will soon be equipped with CabVision that will greatly improve the efficiency by not stopping on floors if the elevator is full. Our hopes are high!

Felt Like Home :-)

  • 4 of 5

I loved this condo! The purchasing was easy and done through email which was helpful to look back at information as our date got closer. I wanted to stay closer to the ground because I hear elevators were a nightmare. Well, elevators are a nightmare even on the 5th floor…but if I didn't have our wagon with me, we were low enough to walk up and down the stairs.

This condo would've been a five star except for the check-in process. You have to check-in at the resort next door, which meant parking my car, getting three kids out, check-in, back in my car, and find parking again. It felt weird checking into a hotel that was not theirs. They did NOT give me wristbands and I knew nothing about them. It was very embarrassing after 5 days of being there to be stopped twice by security asking about my bands??? We had friends staying there that gave us some of their bands or I would've had to go next door to the other resort to get my bands.

All-in-all it was a great condo, decorated beautifully, and I loved all the hooks to hang towels, suits, etc…even on the balcony!! I would love to rent again!

Owner's Response: We thank you for the review, and we have listened. I am now back in charge of our condo and you no longer need to have this cumbersome check-in process. You can go straight to the unit from your car! We hope you can come again to stay!
