Florida Panhandle Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Room, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Note: Starting from Mar. 2016, Tidewater Beach Resort requires every guest group to pay a $25 onsite registration fee. Upon arrival, guests are required to fill a form at the registration desk on the 2nd floor, and will receive wristbands and parking passes after registration. This fee ($25 per reservation group) is NOT included in our price quote and will need to be paid by the guests. It is also required that the person filling the registration form must be at age 25 or above. (For guests that reserved our condo before Mar. 2016, we will refund the registration fee back to you after you leave.)

Enjoy a private get away with pure white sand, emerald green water in a five star resort with low rate!

Our unit provides the breathtaking right-front gulf view throughout the living room and the kitchen. The main bedroom has a king size bed with a 32” LCD TV. A small bunk room can sleep two people comfortably. Two more people can be accomodated using the queen size sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen has granite counter tops and is fully equipped. The living room has a small dining table, one sofa and two sofa chairs, a large breakfast bar, and a 46” LCD TV with a DVD player. The living room TV can be used as a computer monitor with VGA and audio cables already installed. In addition, there is a Wii game console with two remote controllers. WiFi is available inside the condo and throughout the resort. The balcony is furnished. Washer and dryer are available in the unit. Beach chairs, umbrella, floats are also stocked inside the condo.

Our unit is right outside a side elevator, which enjoys a relatively light traffic in the summer season. The condo is close to an east end unit with probably the best view among all one beroom units at Panama City Beach. At the balcony, you will be able to enjoy the wide open ocean view, the breathtaking gulf sun set, the gorgeous firework show at the nearby pier, and also a skew of the street lights in the evening.

First class amenities provided by Tidewater Beach Resort include two ocean front lagoon pools with hot tub and tiki bar, one big heated indoor pool for comfortable winter swimming, a modern ocean front fitness center with hot tubs, sauna and steam rooms, two game rooms, a theater, onsite shops and covered parking.

Tidewater Beach Resort lies in the heart of the most-sought-after location at the preferred west end of Panama City Beach. It is only flip-flop away from the Pier Park shopping center. Amenities include The Grand Theater 16-Plex, Target, Dillards, JCPenney, Borders Bookstore, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, The Back Porch, etc. In addition, Winn-Dixie grocery shopping, fishing off the pier, or baseball games at Frank Brown Field are all within walking distance. Wal-mart and water park within walking distance are also in development. Tidewater is undoubtly the envy of all Emerald Coast resorts.

No pet. No smoking. Single under age 25 must be accompanied by an adult or parent.

Full payment including the damage deposit should be made 1 month before arrival or at the time of reservation. We do not take reservation within 3 days of arrival.

This is a great condo! We only had three nights that we could stay and this was the only reasonable condo that would rent for just three nights! Rockey and Amy are so nice and are very helpful IF you need it. We had NO problems at all and it was a awesome stay for us! Thank you Rockey and Amy!

One of the best vacations I've had!

  • 4 of 5

WOW! Everything was amazing! 1716 offered pretty much everything we could have asked for on our recent vacation! We had 3 adults and 2 children and it was just the right size. We loved the breakfast bar/counter, we sat at it every morning. Having the bunkhouse in a separate room was very convenient, it kept the kids and their stuff from making things feel cluttered. The unit was fully stocked with everything we needed. Dish & hand soap/laundry detergent/plenty of towels'/2 hair dryers and so much more! The icemaker in the refrigerator was great for filling our cooler for the beach. The 2 beach chairs/umbrella (which are stored under the bunks) were much appreciated! There were also a few beach towels, so we didn't have to worry about bringing our own from home. The only thing I would have to say is that the pullout sofa was a little less than comfortable, but what hide-a-bed is? It seemed a little dated, and lopsided. But I got to hear the sound of the waves all night, so it more than made up for it! The kids really appreciated the Wii with Netflix. Helped keep them entertained if the grownups went out on the town. The Tidewater itself was amazing. Everyone we talked to on our trip commented that it is known as one of the better resorts. The location was perfect, lots of things within walking distance. We walked to Pier Park 3 times during our stay. The resort itself could use a facelift, but of course that does not reflect on the unit/owners. One note for the owners is that the neighboring unit seemed to have younger guests staying there. I would say early-mid 20s. They were quite loud 2 of the nights and there was constant door slamming. Again, not reflective of Amy/Rockey at all. Being 17 floors up was amazing. We brought binoculars based on what other reviewers had mentioned. We saw tons of stingrays and large fish. We looked for dolphins, but unfortunately did not see any. I can't speak enough about this trip. This was my first time renting a condo over a hotel and I will always check out vacation rentals from now on! Very pleased with everything and are already talking about returning next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the detailed review! We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay. The hide-a-bed is indeed a bit too old. We will consider changing it once the light season comes. Hope to see you coming back soon in the future!

Great Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Rockey and Amy on making our spring break great. We rented their condo and all I can say is WOW. They are easy to work with and great instructions on the operations of the condo. The condo was very clean, well maintained, and move in ready. The view from the 17th floor is incredible and you can see dolphins and sting rays. Make sure you go ghost crabbing at night, the kids had a blast finding the crabs. We would definitely stay here again.

Great anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Near Pier Park and an easy walk down the beach to it even.

Nice unit overall with great view especially to the east. We used the beach chairs which was a great plus. Never needed a thing so no real interaction with the owners other than an easy and great value booking. That's a sign of an owner who assures all is in order before you arrive and during your stay. Lobby needs to come into the future and the walkover had a very weird smell between lobby and garage but being covered it was nice on a rain day and the gated garage good for security. With that said it had nothing to do with the very nice unit and I'd stay here again. Great value.
