Are you looking to head to the beach for a little R&R? Then welcome to The Flip Flop Beach Stop at Tidewater Beach Resort! We have a 1 bedroom, 1 bath along with full-size twin bunk beds, in an alcove in the hallway, that sleeps a family of four comfortably. Our condo is on the 15th floor and looks onto the beach, there's no road to cross. Simply take the elevator down to the ground floor and walk out about 50 steps & you'll be on the sand. This condo is the only floor plan in Tidewater with floor to ceiling views facing the South (beach), East (sunrise & city including Pier Park) & North (Hwy 98 & Frank Brown Park).

We're located near the prime intersection of Highway 79 and Front Beach Road. Tidewater Beach Resort is located several miles West of the Thomas Drive/Miracle Strip madness and features an impressive array of amenities for your enjoyment. Our condo has sunrise views and overlooks the sugar white beaches and the emerald green water on the Gulf of Mexico from a private balcony with absolutely gorgeous views to the east. West Beach is family friendly, come see why this area is consistently an Emerald Coast hot spot.

This condo has an open floor plan: the kitchen opens up to the family/living & dining rooms. The family/living room includes a flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player. We provide high-speed wireless internet access that will keep you connected at all times......but only if that's what you want. The master bedroom has a king-size bed (new mattress purchased January 2017 ) and a flat screen TV with cable. There are comfortable, regular size twin bunks in the hallway. Our unit has been decorated in a 'beach cottage' theme and includes a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops , dishwasher and a washer & dryer. The dining room comfortably seats six with two adjacent bar stools allowing you further seating. This is our home away from home so you will have all amenities necessary to enjoy your vacation. Take a look at our 70+ reviews (link at top of page) and read why our guests keep coming back.

Imagine relaxing by one of the two 4,200 sq. ft. lagoon pools, each with a hot tub or enjoy the indoor heated pool or one of the two Roman spa pools. Maybe you would prefer the 4,300 sq. ft. cardio-fitness facility, sauna and spa…the choice is yours. The resort also boasts an arcade and a large screen movie/media theater for all ages so the kids can enjoy a movie while you enjoy some time to yourself!

Tidewater Beach Resort is a prime location, just 20 minutes from the airport along with easy access to fantastic restaurants & great shopping. We're located 1/3 of a mile from Pier Park: a 900,000 square foot open air complex of dining, shopping & entertaining featuring Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Back Porch Seafood House, Reggae J's, Hofbrau's Beer Garden, Starbucks, Panera Bread, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge (a sister property to the original Nashville honky tonk), Target, Dillard’s, Old Navy, a 16 screen cinema & more!

Why Tracy Dodd Febles chose North West Florida

Come experience the beautiful beaches and sugar white sand that stays cool even on the hottest day. Being native southerners, we've been vacationing in the Panhandle of Florida for over 40 years and despite traveling the Hawaii, Europe, Australia & Mexico, we still love this beach with a passion!

What makes this condo unique

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time at the Flip Flop Beach Stop! Here are just a few of the things that we loved:

1. The AMAZING view!

2. All the great amenities - indoor pool, workout room, indoor hot tubs and sauna, 2 outdoor pools and hot tubs.

3. The condo was spotless and tastefully decorated.

4. All the little extras - movies, books, menus, maps, laundry facilities in the unit - really made it feel like home.

5. Nice, central location on Front Beach Road was easy to find and close to restaurants, shopping, etc.

6. The owners were very helpful and so easy to work with.

7. The easy access to the beach made morning beach walks simple.

8. The view!!!

Our week at Flip Flop Beach Stop was a wonderful retreat from the nasty Wisconsin winter and we are already talking about doing it again next year! Thank you!!

  • 5 of 5

Whats not to love about the stay here. Tracy emailed me back QUICKLY anytime I had questions. Very clean unit, pictures were spot on. Very nice view!

The bed was comfortable. I have ZERO complaints about this unit and I would def come back and stay again, whether with friends or family. It was a nice getaway for my girlfriend and I to get away from responsibilities and do nothing but relax!

Thanks Tracy for accommodations!

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

This is a corner unit so you are not beach front but still have a great view of the gulf. The weather was awful but that was certainly not the owner's fault. The unit had everything we needed and the directions we found when we got there were perfect. A bit smaller than we expected but more than adequate. Nice to be in a unit away from hallway foot traffic and near and elevator that hardly anyone else uses. Would certainly rent again.

Great Condo with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. The location on the 15th floor was great, especially since it was a corner unit right by the stairwell and elevator. Although the elevator was not that busy during our stay, we typically used the stairs for a little extra exercise. What we loved most about the condo was the views! We were traveling with family and between us had 3 different condos, and everyone agreed that our unit had the most spectacular views. The balcony is great since it's wider than most of the other units, so a larger table can fit on it which was great for breakfast, etc. We stayed at the condo over New Year's Eve and had a perfect view of the fireworks from Pier Park and the midnight fireworks show from the pier.

The condo was very clean upon our arrival and was stocked with pretty much anything one might need, including beach towels and beach toys and chairs and lots of literature about the area's attractions and restaurants. Plus there's books, dvds, board games, and puzzles. Our little niece and nephew loved stopping by our unit to play games and watch dvds.

For a great meal take a walk down the street to Dusty's Oyster Bar - yes, you may have to wait a bit, but it's worth it.

For our New Year's Eve dinner we dined at Firefly, and it was also great. Although a bit pricey, it was perfect for a special occasion meal.

Even though the weather wasn't very nice we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit to anyone. It's on the smaller end of units at Tidewater, but the layout and views more than make up for the smaller square footage. Plus with the corner, end location it was definitely much quieter than the other units.
