About Richard & Carolyn Frasher

Welcome! We are Dick & Carolyn and we recently purchased our condo in paradise. We have traveled all our lives and never have we found a beach that can compare to this, hence, the reason it's listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. We decided to purchase a condo that we could enjoy with our family but also share with others so that you, too, can enjoy this paradise. Please also view our 2 bedroom/3 bath with private bunk room at vrbo and enter 668246.

Why Richard & Carolyn Frasher chose Florida Panhandle

After looking at many condo complexes in Panama City Beach, we decided on Tidewater Beach Resort because nowhere else on the beach offers the amenities that we have here at Tidewater. With 2 outdoor pools and hot tubs, an indoor pool, saunas, Roman spas, fitness center, library, internet center, a movie theater, game rooms for the kiddos, a snack bar, Waves on-site restaurant, COMPLIMENTARY beach chair & umbrella service, on site beach toys (parasailing, water bikes, kayaks, jet skis, paddle boards, beach volleyball), covered/gated parking, 7 elevators and 24/7 security...and did we mention LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...what more could we ask for? We are literally 1/2 mile from Pier Park with restaurants galore and over 100 specialty stores as well as the department stores, the 16 screen Grand Theater with an IMAX, newest grand opening Dave & Buster's, Longhorn Steakhouse, Chili's and many more restaurants and shops opening soon.. The all new Miracle Strip Amusement Park is now open, right next to Pier Park. Right across the street is Russell Pier where you can fish off the pier and also where the fireworks go off for 4th of July, New Years, etc. You literally can relax on our balcony and watch the fireworks. Tidewater is only a 10 minute drive from the new International Airport and Frank Brown Park. If you are coming to Panama City Beach for the sports, you can't stay much closer than this! With all of these amenities and the location, there was no other place to be Panama City Beach.

Fabulous getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Frasher's condo was beautiful, comfortable, well-maintained, and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The view was amazing! The beach chairs were a definite plus, and we made good use of them. I also appreciated the covered parking and enclosed walkway to the building. The amenities at Tidewater were top notch, except for the wifi, which was spotty at times, but this was not a big issue for me...I was on vacation! Carolyn was a dream to work with, very responsive and very interested in our comfort while we were in her home. Many thanks to the Frashers...we had a wonderful, relaxing time!

Charming condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beach condo! It is decorated with brightly painted walls and colourful-beachy art. It was very clean. You can sit on the beach or look at the ocean from the balcony. The location is very convenient to Pier Park. Would definitely stay here again!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Will definitely be back. The room was perfect. The only thing was the elevators took forever! We waited 10 to 15 min every time we wanted to go anywhere.

Our repeat guests do receive discounts on their future stay. Again, thank you so much! Richard & Carolyn Frasher

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the condo. It was beautiful and it had everything we needed. The only cons had nothing to do with the condo itself.


The view is beautiful!

The condo has everything that you need to cook and eat.

The condo is so cute and beachy.

The master bed and twin bed were both comfortable. Those are the only 2 beds that we used.

The location was perfect. You are so close to pier park and lots of restaurants.


The elevators do take what seems like forever when it is busy. We tried all of them and they all took forever, so we just used the ones that had 3 electors because we seemed to have more luck since there were more of them. (We had a 7 month old, so it seemed like forever when we were waiting because he was tired and hungry.)

The guys that work at the chair rentals were very rude. I was extremely nice to them because I know they have a lot of people to deal with, but they were so rude and unfriendly. While they were putting the umbrellas down, they wouldn't put down their cigarettes. I know that smoking is allowed, but I didn't appreciate them blowing their smoke on my 7 month old baby.

We couldn't have asked for a better condo to stay at. We really enjoyed it and felt very comfortable. We will definitely be back! Thanks for sharing your condo, Mr. and Mrs. Frasher! :)
