About the property

923 sq ft Deluxe Unit with Master Walk-Out: 1 Bedroom + Bunk Room/2 Bathrooms


Tidewater Beach is a high-rise resort situated on 636 feet of white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Our condo is one of few with both the Living Room & Master facing the Gulf!

The entrance to our unit is set back from the main hallway, allowing for a little more 'privacy' and less commotion. There are beds to accommodate the maximum occupancy of 5 persons, including infants and children. We feel our condo would be perfect for families --especially those with teens or younger children --or a quiet escape for two.

This "Deluxe" unit is 923 sq. ft. with 1 Bedroom + Bunkroom and 2 Baths located on the 20th floor. From the balcony at this height, we have discovered that the 'noise' on the beach is almost inaudible, yet the soothing sound of the ocean waves is still clearly heard. Step out onto the 30 ft. private balcony and see what YOU experience!

The kitchen is well-appointed for preparing meals at home. Of course, we leave the grocery shopping up to you :). Two can dine at the cozy table and there's seating for four at the kitchen bar.

The Living Room offers impressive views of the Gulf through nine-foot-high sliding glass doors that open to the balcony. For your inside entertainment, there is a 40'' Samsung Smart TV with a complimentary Netflix account--or bring your favorite DVDs from home. Wi-Fi is free and can be accessed within the unit and locations throughout the resort. The sofa has a Queen-size bed and sleeps two comfortably.

Imagine a Master Bedroom with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors leading to the balcony and captivating views of the Emerald Gulf Coast.The Master has a Queen-size bed, large chest of drawers, 32'' flat screen TV, spacious closet and an en suite bath just steps away.

The Twin over Twin Bunks are tucked away inside a private 'Bunk Room'--a small, personal space just for the kids! There is a VIZIO 24'' Smart T.V. for watching movies or shows on NETFLIX (the bunk room is NOT equipped with cable), and the en suite contains a stacked washer & dryer.

We invite you to come relax and enjoy the spectacular views. It's a wonderful treat to watch dolphins playing, stingrays fluttering at the shoreline... and the dazzling sun as it sets over the sparkling sea.

Resort amenities include two huge lagoon pools, indoor (seasonally heated) pool, fitness center with Roman spa, conference center, movie theater (selected days of operation), game room, tiki bar/grill, and casual dining restaurant. There are seven elevators to service this 570-unit high-rise! We advise to keep your schedule flexible during holidays and peak season as the high volume of guests may increase elevator wait times.

About Michael & June

Hi! We are Michael and June, the owners of our beach retreat in Panama City Beach. This is our only condo and our second home. We are lovers of the beach and ocean. Our favorite vacation usually involves scuba diving along with walks along the ocean shore.

Michael & June purchased this condo in 2007

Why Michael & June chose North West Florida

We have been vacationing on the sugar white sand beaches of the Florida panhandle for over 25 years. We are scuba divers and have traveled all over the world, especially the Caribbean. Few places, if any, provide the variety of activities as Panama City Beach, eg. fishing, golf, surfing, windsurfing, scuba, boogie boarding, amusement parks, great shopping, a great variety of restaurants and of course just relaxing at the beach and building sand castles. I personally enjoy Tidewater's great fitness center with cardio machines with TV as well as the great simultaneous view of the beach. Whatever you want in a beach vacation you will find it here. The only problem is that you will not want to go home. :D

Great view, great condo, close to everything!!

  • 5 of 5

We have truly enjoyed our stay here at Tidewater!! The view is incredible!!! June and Michael have been a dream to rent from!! June was always available to answer my questions, even though it's a busy time of year with the Christmas holidays! This condo unit was perfect for our family of 4. The kids loved the bunk room with tv and Netflix. We enjoyed the indoor pool since the temperatures dropped dramatically during our stay. The Roman Spa, sauna, and steam room were also great!! My only recommendation is a king sized bed in the master bedroom. My husband slept on the pull-out couch after the first night because we couldn't get comfortable in the queen. But other than that, we LOVED this unit and resort!!! Definitely want to come back next year!!! Thank you June and Michael!!!!!!!

Had a relaxing stay....

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very clean and was very well equipped. Sunsets were awesome from the wonderful patio deck. It was nice having the washer and dryer and have the beach service -two chairs and umbrella was a nice added service. The queen bed was a little hard for us and the elevators were slow due be being on the 20th Floor but got better after the weekend. We were there after HERMINE so the water was not clear and they had lost about 40ft. of beach area. But we accomplished what we went there for. RELAX, read a book and good food and RELAX again. you can walk to Pier Park but beware there is not a sidewalk all the way there. So be safe and ENJOY! Cheers!

Perfect Trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! Everything was nice and clean, probably the cleanest and neatest that I have ever seen a rental before. Tidewater itself ranks as one of my favorites now. Everyone there was so nice and helpful. The pools weren't crowded since there were a total of 3 pools. 2 large ones outdoors and 1 indoors. There were so many amenities that we never even got to, such as the game rooms and movie theater. They even had a great system in place for their luggage carts so that you didn't have to hunt them down. It is also very close and convenient to everything. Then most importantly, the owners are the sweetest people! They made the stay even better by making everything run so smoothly. They were right on top of everything and responded to an email or text right away! I was highly impressed with everything!

Great stay at Tidewater # 2015

  • 5 of 5

Overall this is a great condo. We stayed 6/4-6/9. Condo was clean and well kept. Pictures are up to date. Master bed is firm but we slept ok. My boys, 2 and 5 loved the bunks beds. The bunk room works out great. We didn't use the sleeper sofa but, 6 could sleep here comfortably. Theres room for a pack and play too. Kitchen has everything you need, seriously. Some items include: small crock pot, cork screw, can openers, pizza pan and cutter, measuring cups, plenty of coffee filters, pot holders, mixer, blender, strainer, gallon pitcher. They've done a great job stocking the kitchen for what you need! There are plenty of towels and wash cloths. Sheets have a clean and fresh smell! Floors and carpet are actually clean, no black feet although there are a few minor stains. Brittany is doing a great job in keeping the place spotless and the owners definitely take pride in their condo.

Wifi had full signal the whole time. AT&T service is spotty within the condo but works better on the balcony. Having Netflix is a big plus for the kids. The balcony is great with amazing views. We saw several different marine life early in the morning.

Elevator service could be lengthy but wasn't bad. I do recommend starting the Tidewater check-in process about an hour in advance to actual check in. It took us an hour to register (we pre-registered as well) and to get a cart. We checked in on a Sat around 5. The lines were long. The hotel and grounds were kept clean and everyone was friendly and helpful. We only used one of the pools but it worked out great for both of my boys.

We used both the provided beach service and the chairs from the room. It was great having both options. My 5yr old loved having the boogie board too.

The owners were awesome to work with. From the first email, to them calling upon arrival, to them even having Brittany bring us a new coffee maker when it broke, they were great! Deposit was refunded the next day as well. I'd definitely recommend this condo.

Best Panama City Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long stay at Tidewater 2015 was fantastic. The condo was spacious and had a great layout for a family. The owners went over and above to prepare us for our vacation and to ensure our stay was great. We communicated by phone, text, and email regarding every essential detail, from check-in to parking and directions. We enjoyed our beach service (chair/umbrella rental) being included, as well as the children's' activity programs. We visited the resort's restaurant, ice cream shop, game room, and swimming pools and enjoyed all of the amenities of Tidewater. The resort was perfectly located for our stay, as it is very close to Pier Park and Frank Brown Park (ball fields). It was one of our best family vacations ever!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in this condo. The owners were easy to work with and covered all the bases so that I had no issues while on my vacation. The condo was very quit even though it was very busy while I was there. Love the bedroom being on the beach side of the condo. I highly recommend staying at this property.
