Are you looking to head to the beach for a little R&R? Then welcome to The Flip Flop Beach Stop at Tidewater Beach Resort! We have a 1 bedroom, 1 bath along with full-size twin bunk beds, in an alcove in the hallway, that sleeps a family of four comfortably. Our condo is on the 15th floor and looks onto the beach, there's no road to cross. Simply take the elevator down to the ground floor and walk out about 50 steps & you'll be on the sand. This condo is the only floor plan in Tidewater with floor to ceiling views. We have sunrise views, we do not see the sunset & we have a view of the pier as well as Pier Park.

We're located near the prime intersection of Highway 79 and Front Beach Road. Tidewater Beach Resort is located several miles West of the Thomas Drive/Miracle Strip madness and features an impressive array of amenities for your enjoyment. Our condo has sunrise views and overlooks the sugar white beaches and the emerald green water on the Gulf of Mexico from a private balcony with absolutely gorgeous views to the east. West Beach is family friendly, come see why this area is consistently an Emerald Coast hot spot.

This condo has an open floor plan: the kitchen opens up to the family/living & dining rooms. The family/living room includes a flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player. We provide high-speed wireless internet access that will keep you connected at all times......but only if that's what you want. The master bedroom has a king-size bed (new mattress purchased January 2017 ) and a flat screen TV with cable. There are comfortable, regular size twin bunks in the hallway. Our unit has been decorated in a 'beach cottage' theme and includes a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops , dishwasher and a washer & dryer. The dining room comfortably seats six with two adjacent bar stools allowing you further seating. This is our home away from home so you will have all amenities necessary to enjoy your vacation. Take a look at our 80+ reviews (link at top of page) and read why our guests keep coming back.

Imagine relaxing by one of the two 4,200 sq. ft. lagoon pools, each with a hot tub or enjoy the indoor heated pool or one of the two Roman spa pools. Maybe you would prefer the 4,300 sq. ft. cardio-fitness facility, sauna and spa…the choice is yours. The resort also boasts an arcade and a large screen movie/media theater for all ages so the kids can enjoy a movie while you enjoy some time to yourself!

Tidewater Beach Resort is a prime location, just 20 minutes from the airport along with easy access to fantastic restaurants & great shopping. We're located 1/3 of a mile from Pier Park: a 900,000 square foot open air complex of dining, shopping & entertaining featuring Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Back Porch Seafood House, Reggae J's, Hofbrau's Beer Garden, Starbucks, Panera Bread, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge (a sister property to the original Nashville honky tonk), Target, Dillard’s, Old Navy, a 16 screen cinema & more!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time at the Flip Flop Beach Stop! Here are just a few of the things that we loved:

1. The AMAZING view!

2. All the great amenities - indoor pool, workout room, indoor hot tubs and sauna, 2 outdoor pools and hot tubs.

3. The condo was spotless and tastefully decorated.

4. All the little extras - movies, books, menus, maps, laundry facilities in the unit - really made it feel like home.

5. Nice, central location on Front Beach Road was easy to find and close to restaurants, shopping, etc.

6. The owners were very helpful and so easy to work with.

7. The easy access to the beach made morning beach walks simple.

8. The view!!!

Our week at Flip Flop Beach Stop was a wonderful retreat from the nasty Wisconsin winter and we are already talking about doing it again next year! Thank you!!

My trip

  • 3 of 5

The place was very nice and affordable. Check out was at 10 which was early. The property owner called saying we needed to hurry and leave so they could clean but an attendant came to the door saying take our time. An hour after we departed I received an email stating I needed to leave which was confusing. Overall it was great except the departure day.

  • 5 of 5

Very cute unit. Well decorated and comfortable. The views from the balcony and every window were amazing. We are ready to move in, seriously. The resort is well maintained and staffed with friendly and knowledgeable people. Oh and the owner Tracy was top notch as well. Pre-trip she got us all the info and was very responsive to our requests. The first night we were there the ac was strugglinging so I let her know and asked for her advice about what to do. She had her handy man there within 30 min to reset the system for us. Thank you Tracy for sharing your condo with us.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tidewater. The pools & other amenities were very clean & well-maintained. In fact, every public place on the property was exceptionally clean.

My only issue was the process of using the luggage carts. Sometimes, we were required to leave our driver's license (with a person we didn't know) in order to "check out" the cart. Other times, there was no one at the checkout station & we were free to borrow one with no license required. Since there was no consistency, I did not want to leave my driver's license with a person & trust that they would remain at the station until I returned the cart. Would my license be guarded from theft? Could it be lost or misplaced?

Owner's Response: Hi Michele, I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in our condo. I want to thank you for sharing your concerns with the luggage cart process. I feel confident you are not the only person with that exact concern, I'll pass your feedback to our HOA to share with Tidewater security. Hopefully they will implement a process change to make it easier on future guests. Thank you again for choosing our condo and we hope you'll stay with us again.

Our family enjoyed staying here.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed from the 12-17 aug 17. We read the reviews before coming. Which were all pretty bad with a lot of complaints. Overall we didn't have any of the problems most people had. We checked in late and the security was very understanding and helpful and had a few laughs with all of the guards at different times each day. The staff was also very nice and checking in late the next day was a breeze unlike the horror stories we read about. On every review we read about the wait time on the elevators. We didn't have this problem and never waited more than 2 min for them the whole week we were there & we rode them all. Security will take your ID if you want to use a luggage cart. This seemed to frustrate a lot of people because most people will just leave the cart outside of their room because their to damn lazy to take it back. I say what makes them your slaves they don't work for you. Hand over your ID or carry your own crap. Make a good impression on them and they'll give you the respect you want. We stayed in room 1518 it was well stocked with everything you need including beach umbrellas, a tent, lots of towels, all the kitchen items you need. The beds were very very comfy and the decor was very nice and up to date. The only issues we had was there was no wind on our side of the condo our balcony was on but view was breathtaking. Hey it's Florida. If you don't like the heat then go somewhere else. Also all the amnesties like the pools, game room, gym, & roman tubs close by 10pm or when it's raining. The beach is always open so who cares. If you're coming to just stay in your room, then you're coming for the wrong reasons. Overall it's a great place to stay enjoy it We did.
