Overview

About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15) maximum 11 guests 5 yrs. and older

Availability chart is current. Actually 3BR plus 5 kids bunk area. This is the largest unit at Tidewater at 2250 SF. Maximum 11 guests 5 and over, plus 4 kids younger than 5 (per HOA, not me).

I also own several units in a complex next door that can accommodate up to 26 more guests. Please inquire from the owner if you need further information about these premium waterfront ground floor units.

Read other condo reviews and see the slow elevator complaints. Not just Tidewater, but all condos up and down the beach. No such problem with this third floor unit. If you don't want to wait, then start walking. Taking the stairs is not an option above the 7th floor unless you are really good in shape.

The Tidewater 301 unit is a 2250 SF corner end unit and is the best of all units in Tidewater. Sleeps 15. Fire code maximum is 11 adults age 5 and over. Everyone that has stayed here said they loved it (see reviews). The wrap around corner balcony provides a full view of the Gulf looking straight out from the balcony while the pool is located directly below on the end of the building. This is the only stack that is direct gulf front with any view of the pool. From the wrap around the corner balcony, you are close enough to throw a baseball in the Gulf or a ping pong ball in the pool (but don't). The photos tell the story. The biggest draw back to most condos is that during the busy season, the elevators can be a little slow. No Problem! You can walk down one level to the garage walkover or down four levels to the beach.

Tidewater is located a short walk from Pier Park. Pier Park has everything. There is over a million square feet of shopping. Stores like CHICO's, Hollister, Dillards, Abercrombie, Target, JCPenny, Nike, Victoria's Secret and CROC are just some of the stores you will find. There is a 16 screen movieplex and even a Starbucks. There are great restaurants (Margaritaville, Back Porch, Olive Garden, Panera Bread, Lonestar Steakhouse and many more). There is even a Dave and Buster's at Pier Park.

This 2250 SF unit is the largest unit in Tidewater. The 119 gallon hot water heater never runs out of hot water. Everything is first class. The living room, dining room and kitchen all run together, so a large family can spread out but still be together in the same area. Most guests are amazed at how spacious a 2250 SF unit is.

Tidewater is the closest condo on the beach to the new Panama City Beach Airport. McDonald's, Arby's and Pizza Hut are less than a block away. Dusty's seafood is two blocks away and is the best Seafood in PCB. With Pier Park one direction and a Winn Dixie grocery store a half mile the other direction, you can walk to either one in 15 minutes. Once you have arrived at Tidewater, you really don't need a car. Just relax and enjoy the beautiful blue water. Expand the map on this site and you can see how close we are to new airport, Pier Park and the Ball Parks.

The price also includes fully paid rental for two pair of beach chairs with umbrellas every day. The two pair of beach chairs and umbrellas are reserved for your entire stay.

King bed in master bedroom and in the second master bedroon, then two queen beds in the other bedroom, sleeper sofa in the living room and then the bunk room has 2 pair of bunk beds with a trundle bed under one of the bunks (that is how it sleeps so many). All bedrooms are big rooms, as is the living/dining/kitchen area.

Tidewater is also located near Frank Brown Park (less than a mile) where many youth sporting tournaments are held.

Stated rental price includes all costs and fees and includes the $25 registration fee. Optional insurance and the VRBO online booking fee are not included. Don't be misled by others quoted base rates that are sometimes 60% of the final rate.

Tidewater Beach Resort is now requiring all guests register and has implemented a $25 resort registration fee. I have already paid that fee. This fee covers 3 parking passes and 11 guest wristbands for the condo. Kids under 5 do not need an armband. You will need to check in with one picture ID per condo at the concierge desk located on the second floor at some point after you arrive.

VRBO/Homeaway is now charging a % of booking fees to the guest. This as implemented in February 2016 and will show up on your booking request as a service fee. This is not a credit card convenience fee, but a charge from VRBO/Homeaway. If you use the online booking feature, you will pay that additional fee over and above my regularly quoted rate. If you book directly with me, you avoid that fee.

If price shopping, compare price per square foot of condo. My condo measures 2250 square feet

About The Owner

I bought the condo in July 2009. I looked for over a year for the perfect unit for my brothers, sisters and my own kids and grandkids. This is the perfect condo. If you stay here, you will see why I choose it over all the others. Steve LaForge

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose North West Florida

This is one of two condo stacks with direct gulf front and pool visibility. Mom can sit on the balcony and watch kids in the gulf and the pool without getting out of her chair. The low floors are a must because the elevators can be difficult to say the least. If you stay in a high floor, don't say you were not warned.

What makes this condo unique

You don't need a car. Everything you need is within walking distance. Read other condo reviews and see the slow elevator complaints. Not just Tidewater, but all big condos. No such problem with this third floor unit. If you don't want to wait, then start walking. You can't do that from the 23rd floor.

Excellent for large families.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the most nicest and spacious condo that we have stayed in. We have a large family with two toddlers and we fit in this condo perfectly. The condo was very clean. The location is also fantastic as well. Steve is very accommodating and fantastic to work with!! We will most definitely be staying in this condo again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephanie. I'm glad you liked it. I try to under promise and over deliver. I do believe it is as nice as any condo in PCB. The location and views are as good as it gets. I hope to see you again soon.

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Condo. Amazing. It is a lot bigger in person than what the pictures look on VRBO. We loved that this unit is on the third floor. Just one floor up from the crossover from the parking garage. Tidewater is a very nice facility. Very Secure. I have never stayed at a place that had so many security guards working all hours. Wonderful fitness area. The pools are very nice and larger than what I expected from the pictures. The only negative thing about Tidewater is they should have installed more elevators. With this unit being on the third floor it wasn't much of an issue for us. Loved that it's close to Pier Park. Steve was excellent to work with in every way. He provided us with excellent umbrella locations/extra chairs. It was wonderful not to have to bring beach chairs from home. I would definitely stay here again. I also loved the patio doors that lead out onto the balconies. They are very heavy and I found this to be a plus with small grandchildren with us they couldn't open the door and go out on the balcony by themselves. The balcony is very secure and safe for little ones. The wrap around balcony was awesome. My mother was with us and she loved the balcony.

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo had lots of room and was perfect for our family. The owner and his brother were wonderful to us. We loved having the beach chairs set up and ready for us! Being on the 3rd floor was a bonus because the elevators were always crowded. We will be back!!

Very clean and open. Furnishings were all up to date.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the condo. The only issues we had were the parking arrangements( across the street in a parking garage),very slow elevators(we used the stairs since it was 3rd floor), and all the hot tubs were always full of small kids.

This unit was PERFECT for my family's vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This unit was very large, was located in the BEST spot on the property, overlooked the beach and pool from the large balcony, and was clean and well supplied. The elevators on the property are very slow due to the large number of units, but the location made taking the stairs that short distance very easy. The property is located within walking distance of restaurants and shopping but enough off the beaten path that the pool and beach were never crowded. The owner was always available and very helpful. Parking was provided across the street and the covered walkover from the garage provided easy access. The beach chairs and umbrellas were supplied by the owner and were an added plus. I highly recommend this rental.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The unit is amazingly large and can accommodate large groups. In our case, the ten of us fit very comfortably in the unit. The location and facility are very nice and while we were there in the off season, it made for a very quiet getaway. I would definitely recommend.
