Beautiful and comfortable, our 3/3 4th floor condo has 2 Master BR on the beach
About Wanda Rehberg
The owners are both CPA's with an eye for detail. We have recently purchased this condo so our calendar shows a lot of availability! We chose Watercrest because we love their huge floor plans. This 3BR/3BA unit has a whopping 1440 square feet. We love the large balcony and tennis court. We dislike the parking garages and the hassels of crosswalks of Front Beach Road. You will not hear road noise from your room! Our desire is to rent condo that exceeds our renter's every expectations. We want you and your family to have the perfect vacation. Since we live fairly close to PCB, we spend time there ourselves so we find all of those little things like burned out bulbs or squeaky hinges that need attention. This condo is treated as our second home and it shows.
Wanda Rehberg purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Wanda Rehberg chose Biltmore Beach
Watercrest offers the largest floorplans in PCB. Our unit is 1440 square feet! There are ample parking spaces right in front just steps away from one of the elevators. There are NO GARAGES OR WALKOVERS! You won't have to park in a loading/unloading zone. You'll park steps away from the elevators. Watercrest units wrap around a large atrium. The way the building is laid out, the units are set back from the elevators and halls so you won't hear a lot of noise from people coming and going. There are plenty of elevators. There are four elevators and only 10 units per floor! Having such little foot traffic means it quiet which is especially nice if you want to sleep in! Using Back Beach Road, you can get to Pier Park in minutes, without all of the traffic headaches. It's simply the best!

Beautiful Condo; Beautiful View
This was our first trip to PCB; although, we have stayed at a number of other places along the gulf coast in the past. We found Watercrest to be a very clean, friendly and secure environment. Staff cleaned the pool deck and chairs every morning; they canvassed the grounds for any trash and in general, keep things looking pretty pristine during our stay. The pool water was clean and clear. Trash containers throughout the complex were frequently emptied; the bathrooms in the common area were clean and tidy. The snack bar area adjacent to the pool was a plus and an inviting place to go for a cold beverage or a light meal. Security had a very visible office on site; they were seen frequently making rounds and were friendly towards the guests. Parking was abundant and the lot was well lighted in the evening. The elevators were all in working order and the wait time for the one we used was never an issue. Luggage carts were numerous and all were stored in a central location for easy access by guests. I should add that the beach area owned by Watercrest was clean of debris and trash containers were emptied daily. Beach recliners and umbrellas were available for rent at a reasonable price.
Our rental, unit #407 offered a beautiful view of the gulf. It was very roomy, neat and the layout was perfect. The two master bedroom suites were spacious and they too offered gorgeous views of the gulf. The room our teenage boys occupied was also nice and more than adequate for their needs. The third bathroom was just across the hall from their bedroom. The fact that each master bedroom had its own sizeable bathroom was a major plus and not something one always finds in three-bedroom units. We always had more than enough hot water when we showered. We brought a couple of minor issues to the owner’s attention when we arrived and found her to be pleasant, quite helpful and easily reachable. We cooked a number of our meals in and found the kitchen to be well supplied with everything we needed.
Overall, we found the Watercrest to be a very well maintained complex and an exceptionally attractive place to stay. We also loved the unit we stayed in and found it to be one of the nicest rentals we have experienced. We plan to return to PCB in the near future and would not hesitate to stay in Watercrest Unit #407 again.
Your review perfectly describes Watercrest, and all the reasons we love it. Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Hopefully you can visit again soon!
Watercrest 407 was very nice. Love having 3 bedrooms/3 baths. All the paperwork was mailed to me along with car decal. We pulled into parking lot, put decal on our car then went straight to unit. Everything was very nice.
Glad you enjoyed it!
Overall a great place
Well equip kitchen, nice spacious rooms and balcony. Dated appliances and cabinets. Disappointed with the cleanliness.
And we were disappointed you did not follow our rules and smoked on the balcony. The appliances are mostly newer stainless steel models, as pictured. We do intend to replace all the cabinets soon. But in any respect, we factor that into the lower rental price for this unit, and it is EXACTLY as pictured in the ad.
Spacious, Excellent location
Overall, a nice unit.
Pros: Incredibly spacious
Unit has everything you need
Great balcony with plenty of seating
W/D in unit
Communication with owner was excellent.
Cons: Needs a good and thorough cleaning. Mold/mildew on all 3 shower curtains. Build-up of dust/dirt on baseboards. Floors not mopped. Build-up of dirt and detergent inside lid of washer. Dishwasher and trash compactor needed to be wiped down, especially inside the door of the dishwasher.
Many of the dishes needed to be washed before we could use them.
I bought bleach cleaner and sprayed the shower curtains. It as an easy solution. I left the cleaner on the table for future use.
That being said, we had a great time. The location was perfect. The pool was nice and clean. Parking was abundant and easy. We never waited on an elevator. Condo is right at the elevator but far enough that you are not bothered by it.
Carts at the building entrance were helpful with groceries and luggage.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay overall but I disappointed to hear that our cleaning was not to your satisfaction. We guarantee thorough cleaning so had you only told me, we would have had a call back to address any issues.
Pier Park is located 9.3 miles away (via Back Beach Road) You can enjoy Pier Park without the bumper to bumper traffic jam. Easy in/out of complex onto Thomas Drive.
Our condo has a book with a lot of information about nearby restaurants and things to do in the PCB area and directions to get to grocery stores, DVD rentals, golf, etc...
You'll be close to all of the activities without being bogged down in their noise and traffic.
Watercrest has a tennis court and shuffle board as well as indoor racquetball court.
Our condo has a large supply of games and 67 DVD's and a few beach toys for your children.
