What a view
What a view
We've stayed in many different condos at p.c.b. In the last 20 years at least. this by far is our favorite,the pictures do not do the view justice...with the wall of windows in the main living area viewing the beach, the sunset and all the way to destin from you're couch is there..windows in each bedroom if that's not enough... The floor plan at this unit is great as well..very private..bedrooms vrs. Living area..and no noises from neighbors,this unit is on the west end like I said best sunset views from the couch.. The patio is @ 8'x10' plenty big enough, the 2 patio chairs were very comfortable,,we stayed in a unit this summer that had taller chairs and a taller table, (bristo set) they give you a view without looking through rails. That would be great here as well.. The large newer tvs were nice as well...with the floor plan here the tv was not so up in your face..very large living area. Very comfortable couch and love seat..master bed was very nice.. With the sun setting on that end of building I did'nt know how well the air conditioner would keep up but it'll still run you out. Very comfortable..we like carpet in the living area ( we bare foot in' ) unit was stocked to the max..wife had a little trouble with the can opener,but it worked out.. The numerical door locks are awesome .. Like having your own elevator, it's out of sight most people don't know it's even there. Luggage carts are plentiful as well as parking...hint.. we parked at street level all week after un loading on 2nd level 1st day, less crowded and no parking on a incline ( less door dings) closer walk ,easier to find your car for me anyway..you can then do elevator to walkway level or walk across the street as we did.. Wife was a little upset she had to empty dishwasher ( it was still full from the last renters) I'm sure this was just overlooked by housekeeping.. I met another owner at tidewater he invited me to look at there unit, we did and would'nt have been near as happy with it..the furnishings,and the view did not come close.. The only complaint I have on tidewater is,you have to line up at the beach every morning to get your chairs .get in line at 8 the chair people will not open till 8:30 (to get on the front row..) a must with kids as chairs are very close together.. The owner is very easy to contact We will definitely return as soon as we can... VRBO is performing a great service with it's work for renters and I appreciate it ..thanks for a great vacation!!!

Photos not accurate
Photos not accurate
This is the 3rd time that we have stayed at the Tidewater and 1st time at this unit. Although the condo was nice, we were very upset when we had arrived. One of our favorite things to do is sit on the large beach front balcony and look out at the ocean and up and down the beach – so we were very disappointed with the orientation of the unit to the beach. It is more of a side view and not beach front. Although the owner states below that they describe it as a corner unit, we thought that it was a beach front corner unit because of the photos. The listing photos of the view are NOT ACCURATE. The description even says, “An awe inspiring panoramic view of the Gulf Coast and the sites of Panama City Beach right from your living room windows.” We definitely did not have a panoramic view of the Gulf Coast. The owner should display a true view in the photos, which includes a view of the beach front balconies and the building cutting off our view to the ocean. The balcony was also very small in comparison to the other units in the building. Please update your photos to show the actual view so that your future renters are not disappointed. Some pros of the condo: owner was pleasant and very easy to work with, received deposit back right away, coffee was provided in the condo. The price was extremely affordable, which explains why the view was not desirable. If you are on a tight budget, do not care about ocean views or care to spend time in your condo, then this would be a good option.

Owner response: We are very sorry that these guests had a expectations that we did not meet. We wish they had contacted us directly when they first arrived to express their disappointment. Or contacted us in any way at all during or after their stay concerning their displeasure. Rather, we are reading it here for the first time, and have been offered no opportunity to explain or remediate their unhappiness. The Dictionary defines Panoramic View as: "viewed from an altitude or distance." Thus, the description is accurate. The photos (except for the ones of Pier Park attractions) in the Ad were taken from the unit by us personally - so the views displayed are the real views from our actual unit. I fear they have confused another listing's photos with ours thus creating an unrealistic expectation. But, we have no control over that. We are pasting some comments from other reviews we have received that will demonstrate this point: "...just as described in the pictures .." "...We enjoyed having a corner unit, because there were a lot of windows which had great views. We also spent time relaxing on the balcony...." "....The pictures are exactly accurate...." "... photo's accurately reflected...." "The pictures are accurate...." So, as we stated earlier we think they have confused another listing with ours. We also appreciate the fact that when they added more guests at the last minute to join them, they wrote and asked if that would be OK. It was OK and there were no additional costs imposed by us for this - as long as the maximum occupants was not exceeded we don't charge by the person. The 100% beach front units where your neighbors on either side, above, and below can peer around and see you on the balcony or even inside the unit, are not our cup of tea. We prefer the privacy the corner units offer and advertise the unit as such. We offer value pricing since we do the work ourselves and don't have to pay the Tidewater Management fees. Nor is our Condo a business. Rather, we would rather have some income during the weeks we are not there, rather than having it sit empty. Again we are sorry these guests expectations were not met. We wish they had reached out to us first, rather than not at all. We believe our many other POSITIVE reviews speak loud and clear about the unit and the experience our many guests have had in our unit on "The World's Most Beautiful Beaches!"
My best friend and I reserved this condo for our Granny-getaway. It offered everything we could want in a condo: the beds were very comfortable, plenty of space, well-appointed kitchen (coffee included), great location. We loved the included daily beach service. As both of us have been to PCB many times, we spent the entire time reading books and just relaxing. We hope to return to this same condo next fall for another vacation.

Absolutely beautiful condo. Everything we forgot or didn't know to bring was in the condo. The pictures are exactly accurate. Bill is very easy and quick at responding to any questions. It was our first time in Panama city beach, and it was amazing. There is so much to do that one week is not enough. All the restaurants that are located on beach front are fabulous, especially Schooners. Gulf world is definitely worth the money. Go there if time allows especially if it rains. Every person we encountered in the resort and local area were so friendly. Everyone spoke and said please and thank you. I would recommend this condo to anyone that wants a truly beautiful and clean resort. All the complaints about the slow elevators should not be a determining factor. It was barely an issue. This condo is located in a corner area and has an elevator very close that most guests do not use. Even the other elevators are not that bad. The most we ever waited was 5 mins which was unusual. This is a huge complex, it really was not a problem. Recommended for families with teenagers, young children, older adults, anyone. Super clean condo! The views from this condo were gorgeous. The condo is very spacious. The set up allows for privacy from the living room and the bedrooms. It is quite large. I am very picky about cleanliness and this condo and the whole resort is very, very clean.

We had a fabulous time staying at this condo. It was very spacious and comfortable. It had all of the essentials needed for our stay. The pools and beach were fabulous and the views were wonderful! The only complaint we would have is that the elevators were slow. Overall, it was a great family vacation and we made memories that will last a lifetime.

Very disappointed with the orientation of the unit to the beach. It is more of a side view not beach front IMO. Balconey is very small and due to the afternoon heat almost impossible to sit on during the afternoon. Dish washer needs replacing. When we arrived I checked the the silverware and dinner ware to make sure I had everything I needed. The silverware in the drawer was dirty, so I removed it and put in the dishwasher. I had a hard time getting the dishwasher to start. The worst part of this vacation was the elevators, this is a huge complex and there were probably 10 elevators. Every time we took an elevator we had to wait for the elevator at least 10 to 15 minutes. Very time consuming. The furniture in the unit was very nice, all the "NO SMOKING" signs distracted from the decor. And it was apparent that there had been smoking (cigarette burns in outside chair cushions). Also the complex is advertised as NO SMOKING, we saw numerous cigarette butts around the pool area and also saw other guest smoking in outside common areas.

Owner response: The unit is not described as Ocean or Beach Front. Rather it is clearly noted to be a corner unit and the pictures in the listing are actual pictures from the balcony and living room windows. We will speak to the housekeepers about the flatware being dirty. We personally were staying in the unit prior to these guests arrival and had used the dishwasher extensively during our stay there with no problems. We will, however, have the appliance repairman out to take a look and make sure all is in order and replace if advised it is needed. We have spoken to the Homeowners Association about the elevators and will continue to work with our fellow Homeowners to improve the speed of the elevators. The sun is the sun, so all 500 balconies at Tidewater, and elsewhere on the beach, are hot during the late afternoons.....Please see our other guests reviews for additional information. Thank you!
Great, Great Condo
Great, Great Condo
The Condo was everything we expected it to be, as the owner's photo's accurately reflected the rental's appearance. It was very clean. Bill was very helpful in answering any questions or concern's. The view was absolutely beautiful..Watched the sun set every evening, it was gorgeous! Loved the location, close to most every thing that we wanted..Love Margaritaville and the little shops at Pier Park..Visited Pineapple Willies. The Margarita's at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville are the best that I have found on the beach..Tried the Boar's Head, it was great. My only complaint is that the outdoor pools were to cold. The one on West end being the coldest. Spent lot's of time on beach!

Really enjoyed our stay at this fabulous unit iin well maintained Tidewater high rise. Great view and easy access to white sand beach and nearby entrrrtainment.

About the owner: This condo is owned by a group of friends who love to travel and vacation together. The beach has always been one of our favorite destinations and finally we decided to “take the plunge” and buy this beautiful unit together. When we can’t use it, it’s available for you!
Why the Owner Chose Tidewater Beach Resort:
We like leaving the car parked the entire time we are here! It’s easy to do at Tidewater because so many things are close at hand and within walking or biking distance. The beach is 2 minutes from the condo door! The fresh seafood shop, the Winn-Dixie, the CVS, public Library, Pier Park and restaurants are all close at hand without a car! And it’s just so relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the awesome views and the dolphins playing in the water!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Just up the road sits Frank Brown Park; a 200 acre recreational center which has several ball fields, playgrounds, picnic areas, fishing sites and an aquatic center. There are 5 18 hole Championship Golf courses nearby, tennis courts, miniature golf, go-carts, water parks, and a zoo for you to enjoy. In addition snorkeling, Scuba Diving, boating, deep sea fishing, swimming, and hiking are all within minutes at St. Andrews State Park. Known as the Seafood Capital of the World, Panama City Beach boasts dozens of long-established restaurants that have served generations of visitors. Across the street from Tidewater are McDonald's, Arby's and Pizza Hut, as well as a Winn Dixie grocery store within walking distance. So whether you want to enjoy the incredible view from the comforts of your own living room, play on the beach, or venture out to town, Partners Paradise is waiting to give you the vacation of your dreams and memories for a lifetime! Tidewater is 14.2 miles from the brand new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP), the first international airport to be built in the U.S. in more than a decade (since September 11, 2001). Our new airport, opened on May 23, 2010, is located in West Bay, near Panama City and Panama City Beach, and serves as a gateway to Northwest Florida and its beautiful world-famous beaches. Beaches International proudly serves Southwest Airlines and Delta Airlines, which together provide daily flights to key U.S. destinations, including cities serving as international gateways.
