WaterCrest condo description

On the family-friendly east end of Panama City Beach, our little slice of Paradise has recently been redecorated. It has three large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, plus a spacious living room and dining area with ample room for the entire family. The living room and two master bedrooms all enjoy breath-taking views of the Gulf of Mexico and direct access to the balcony.

The 1441 sq. ft. unit can sleep up to 8 guests comfortably with a king bed in the first master bedroom, a queen in the second master, two full beds in the third bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Each room has a flat screen with cable TV. The living room and third bedroom also have DVD players. To stay connected to the outside world (if you must!), the unit has free WiFi access.

The balcony has a spectacular view west from 11 stories up, with the PCB beachfront curling northwest toward the horizon. Enjoy breakfast out in the fresh Gulf air, high above one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and watch the sun begin to turn the water an unbelievable shade of emerald green and the sand a shimmering white. Then, after enjoying the sand and surf all day, relax with a glass of wine as the sun sets into the Gulf, turning the sky from blue, to rose, to purple, then black with countless stars sparkling overhead. After a day like this, you'll understand why we call it our little slice of Paradise.

Watercrest is a well-appointed and maintained resort with something to do for everyone. The large pool (heated seasonally), hot tub, kiddie pool and brand new sunning decks all overlook the Gulf. Other on-the-premises amenities include a lighted tennis court, shuffleboard, racquetball court and separate men's and women's fitness centers, all available for guest use on a first come/first served basis. And did we mention the unforgettable beach?!

If you haven't noticed, we really love our condo and look forward to sharing it with you.

This is a no smoking unit and pets are not allowed.

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About: We're Carol and Gene. We live in Roswell, GA. Carol is a kindergarten teacher's assistant and Gene is a construction project manager. We have two grown children, one a teacher and the other in graduate school. We both grew up near water, Carol in Cleveland on the shores of Lake Erie and Gene near the Jersey Shore (yes, that one!). So it has been a shared dream to own a second home at the beach. Thanks to the down real estate market, this opportunity presented itself in early 2011 and we couldn't afford not to take advantage.

          Why WaterCrest:
          Like most Atlantans, we spent many a Spring Break at the beaches of Northwest Florida, from Destin to Panama City Beach. More recently we have stayed at a friend's unit in Watercrest and fell in love with the resort. For a family, you can't beat the location; away from the more commercial and congested areas of the Beach, but close enough to take advantage of the variety of restaurants, shopping and entertainment that a city of its size has to offer. And Watercrest has a lot of nice amenities that we did not find in other resorts. The pools and decks are large and well-maintained. And the beach in front of the condo is deep and wide (the adjacent lot is vacant), so it never feels crowded.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          It is obvious from our property description and selection of photos that we enjoy relaxing on the balcony. There have been some days that we never made it down to the beach, content to watch the world go by from 11 stories above it. We love to walk the beach, especially first thing in the morning, when our body clocks are still on Eastern time. If you're feelng particularly energetic, you can walk to St. Andrews State Park, about 1.5 miles to the east. And in the category of simple pleasures, it is wonderful sleeping in a Gulf-front bedroom. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the surf never gets old. And in our unit, two bedrooms have that luxury.
