About Gidge Black

Brody and Gidge are from Birmingham Alabama and are featured on HGTV's Beachfront Bargain Hunt August 24, 2014 episode.

Gidge Black purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gidge Black chose Panama City Beach

Looked extensively in Destin and could not find what we wanted but found the condo of our dreams at Aqua. The story is so compelling it was made for TV.

What makes this condo unique

If you forget sun screen, bathing suit, towel or even milk you can walk across the street to Blue Dolphin or convenience store. If you are tired and want to walk for lunch or dinner, right from the beach, you have multiple options. Then there is Pier Park, the premier entertainment eating and shopping facility on the Emerald Coast, just a few hundred yards away. Want to fish just walk down and rent a pole at the pier.

Not to mention you will be staying in the most luxurious condominium in Panama City Beach. The amenities are second to none and our unit layout has a wider view of the ocean than almost any 2BR ocean front unit. The relaxed atmosphere and convenience are a vacation dream.

Excellent Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved Aqua and specifically our unit! Very nicely decorated with perfect access to the beach. Couldn't have asked for a better spot, and safe enough for older kids to have freedom at pool without constant adult supervison! Thank you so much!

Wonderful Property..!!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at this unit for a short girls getaway and we couldn't have asked for a nicer property or better location. The unit was clean upon arrival and we did not experience any issues while we were there. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the mornings drinking my coffee and listening to the waves. The coffee maker brews the coffee very fast and I liked it so much that I'm buying one just like it. Although we were only there for a few days, we had everything that we needed in the kitchen for me to cook breakfast. It was great having Shuckum's directly across the street and of course we had dinner there one night. You have to try the fish tacos because they are amazing. I'm always concerned about the elevators being slow with high rise properties, however that was definitely not the case with the elevators at Aqua. It was an added bonus having the covered, secure parking across the street with the walkover to the beach side. This is a very safe and secure property. One afternoon there was a group of college kids partying on the balcony and playing their music so loudly that it could be heard all the way down on the beach. That did not last long at all because the Security Guard put an end to that real quickly. This is definitely a family oriented resort that offers many amenities. My only complaint would be that the heater in the pool had been turned off therefore it wasn't warm enough for us to swim in the beautiful pool. The booking process was so quick and easy and Gidge was kind enough to allow us to rent this unit at the last minute. I definitely plan to stay at Aqua 704 again within the next few months. Thanks so much Gidge for sharing your home away from home with us.
