On the family-friendly east end of Panama City Beach, our little slice of Paradise is beautifully decorated to put you in the right frame of mind the minute you walk in! The 1441 sq. ft. unit can sleep up to 10 guests comfortably. The balcony has a spectacular view west from 11 stories up, with the PCB beachfront curling south 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. Beach service is included with your rental (03/14/15-10/17/15) plus there are additional beach chairs and umbrellas available. 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.

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.
