I like going during the day and sitting outside over the beach. Metal picnic style tables and very casual. Many people will have a shirt over a bathing suit. They have a live web cam outside. Say hello to loved ones back home! Good onion ring tower! I think their menu is available online. It's a parking nightmare! I try to go for a really late lunch or early dinner or be ready to circle around and around or walk from off site parking. Get a t-shirt there. Everyone else does....MoreCollapse
This is the upside down building on the corner. You can't miss it. My teens went and said it was a lot of fun. Tickets are about $22. You can add lazer tag for a bit more. They recommend that you allow 3-4 hours for the experience. That makes the tickets to this a much better bargain than go carts that are about $10 for a 5 minute ride!...MoreCollapse
If you're on Front Beach trying to get out of traffic, many of these roads cut thru. This is one of them. If you take this road to Back Beach Rd, there is a nice Golf Course to the West. It's called El Hombre. It's off of Back Beach Rd/ US98/30A. It's 27 hole course. 120 Coyote Pass Panama City Beach, FL 32407 (850) 236-8374...MoreCollapse

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: 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 squeeky hinges that need attention. This condo is treated as our second home and it shows.
Why the Owner Chose WaterCrest:
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!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
WATERCREST IS A BEACH FRONT PROPERTY! THE COMPLEX SITS RIGHT ON THE GULF! Watercrest floorplans, amenities, it's location on the quiet end of the beach make it the ideal condo for your rental.
