Pier Park, the city's most beautiful and exciting hot spot, is within walking distance.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful condo with emmaculate view of the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with our stay here. We are a family of four with two daughters age 13 and 11. The owners were very helpful in making our stay everything we could have asked for it to be. They provided with everything we would need from the time we arrived until the time we left. We checked on Wednesday May 23 and checked out Saturday May 26. We would definitely consider staying here again. We had no complaints. Beautiful property and very relaxing.

Great condominium. Very comfortable and conveniently located.

  • 4 of 5

Great condo for comfort and convenience. Not impressed with Tidewater resorts. One restaurant - equipment did not work a couple of days. Closed at unscheduled times and generally too early. Beach chair rental too high, $35/day and they remove all cushions and umbrellas at 4:30. Tiki bar closed everyday by 4PM.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your veru positive review. In speaking with us, you indicated that you were very satisfied with our condo. This review seems to be centred more, however, on the resort itself. You must realize that early May is still the slow season and not all services at the resort and in the city are not yet available. In addition, the $35 per day beach chair rental fee is standard all across the city. Thank you for staying with us.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in PCB will be one of our favorite family vacation trips! This property has a perfect location for enjoying the beach and all PCB has to offer. Avoiding the elevators was super convenient and there was plenty of space for our family of four. We didn’t cook much but all the essentials are there for your use. Ella and Ernest were very easy to work with and ensured that our vacation was perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the 5 out of 5 star review. We are so happy that you had a great time! As you know, we do our best to please our customers. Finally, we hope that you will return again one day soon. Thanks again! Ernest and Ella

We were very impressed the minute we walked through the door. The view is amazing and the condo was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen is well equipped so you can make toast OR a gourmet meal. If you don't want to do either, there is an excellent on-site restaurant. The resort has many amenities for all ages and it is an easy walk to Pier Park. Ella and Ernest were very helpful and gracious hosts. Do not hesitate to spend your vacation at their condo. You won't be disappointed!
