Andy Martin purchased this condo in 2012

Why Andy Martin chose Florida Panhandle

We felt that Tidewater and West Panama City Beach offer better value with the same spectacular beaches, and our luxury condo at a much lower price for our guests than other beaches. It is in a convenient location for travelers. It is located close to the airport, Pier Park, and many attractions. This is a great family vacation area. We also discovered the value of this beach vs. Destin, Seaside, Watercolor or any of the beaches on Highway 30-A. We are 10 minutes from Rosemary beach and the prices are so much lower on everything. The food is fabulous, the portions are big and much more affordable.

What makes this condo unique

You don't have to leave the resort - Tidewater has everything you need right on the property. 2 outdoor pools, an indoor pool, a movie theater, workout center, restaurants, convenience store and game room. The beach service has wave runners, kayaks, sailboats and comfy loungers. The balcony views are incredible. The water is so clear you can see fish swimming from our floor. Tidewater Resort is a truly complete full service property that has all the amenities of a 5-star resort.

This was our second stay at Beauty and the Beach! We wont even look for anywhere else to stay. The condo is super clean and decorated beautifully. It is so roomy! It is perfectly located and the view......oh the view ! I could just sit on that balcony all day long! The owners are absolutely awesome to deal with. They respond very fast to any question that you might have. They make sure that everything is perfect for your stay in their condo. Very comfortable and relaxing! We just booked our stay for 2017 and cant wait to enjoy this condo again!

Best condo on PCB

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about this condo and the owners. Andy was so hospitable and made sure we had the best experience for our vacation. The view is breath-taking and the condo was luxurious. We even left our toiletry bag and he let us know immediately and is sending it to us via mail. I will definitely be staying here again! :) Make sure and eat at the Sandbar and order Commander Dave's shrimp!!!

Breath taking views!!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in PCB and it was beautiful. The condo was huge and the views are amazing. The water was so clear you could just sit and watch all the sea creatures from the balcony. We enjoyed how most everything was within walking distance. We enjoyed Pier Park for shopping and dinning. The unit is decorated nicely and was clean when we arrived. My only complaint about the unit are the beds, not the most comfortable. The master bed is pretty lumpy. As for the complex, pools are nice and big, the beach access is great, loved having the chairs and umbrella rental although you do have to go down right when they open to reserve and they are right on top of each other. Don't like the fact that the wrist bands have to be worn all the time I could understand in the common areas, though I'm sure it's more for security. (Would be awesome if the wrist bands were more flexible so you could wear when needed and remove when needed) Overall I would definitely recommend renting this condo! Thanks for opening up your vacation home to us!!

Owner's Response: Jessica, thanks for your overall positive review. We just purchases a brand new, Sterns and Foster mattress that is luxurious. We also purchased new high thread count sheets. We read our reviews and try to improve our unit every time. Come see us again and let us know what you think of the master BR bed this time! Andy and Kathy

Nice property, great view, but with some challenges

  • 3 of 5

On the positive side:

- Very nice condo, very roomy, and the view is great.

- Really appreciated that the beach chairs and umbrella were included in the weekly rental rate

- The beach is great.

On the negative side:

- The elevators are really a challenge. Not anything the condo owners can really fix, but just mentioning because waiting up to 20 minutes to get an elevator is really a big problem.

- The condo was not very clean when we arrived. There was sand in the beds and on the floors. It was as if the cleaning service did not clean the beds or floors at all. We had to clean when we got there and picked up piles of sand.

- All 3 DVD players had issues. None of the remotes worked at all. The player in the master bedroom did not work at all either. The player in the family room did not play Blue Ray's even though it is a blue ray player. This might be because the remote didn't work.

Owner's Response: Todd, We wish that you had a 5-star experience. We did speak with our maid and let them know that you were not pleased. We have generally had few problems with that. I wish you had let us know about the remote problems sooner. We have a maintenance company under contract that tends to matters such as that when people let us know. We would have gladly sent the maid back and fixed the remote. We truly aim to please. Andy and Kathy
