Tidewater #301 4BR, ALL included Pricing, on the beach, with double beach setup

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,250 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15) maximum 11 guests 5 yrs. and older

Availability chart is current. Actually 3BR plus 5 kids bunk area. This is the largest unit at Tidewater at 2250 SF. Maximum 11 guests 5 and over, plus 4 kids younger than 5 (per HOA, not me).

I also own several units in a complex next door that can accommodate up to 26 more guests. Please inquire from the owner if you need further information about these premium waterfront ground floor units.

The Tidewater 301 unit is a 2250 SF corner end unit and is the best of all units in Tidewater. Sleeps 15. Fire code maximum is 11 adults 5 and over years old. Everyone that has stayed here said they loved it (see reviews). The wrap around corner balcony provides a full view of the Gulf looking straight out from the balcony while the pool is located directly below on the end of the building. This is the only stack that is direct gulf front with any view of the pool. From the wrap around the corner balcony, you are close enough to throw a baseball in the Gulf or a ping pong ball in the pool (but don't). The photos tell the story. The biggest draw back to most condos is that during the busy season, the elevators can be a little slow. No Problem! You can walk down one level to the garage walkover or down four levels to the beach.

Tidewater is located a short walk from Pier Park. Pier Park has everything. There is over a million square feet of shopping. Stores like CHICO's, Hollister, Dillards, Abercrombie, Target, JCPenny, Nike, Victoria's Secret and CROC are just some of the stores you will find. There is a 16 screen movieplex and even a Starbucks. There are great restaurants (Margaritaville, Back Porch, Olive Garden, Panera Bread, Lonestar Steakhouse and many more). There is even a Dave and Buster's at Pier Park.

This 2250 SF unit is the largest unit in Tidewater. The 119 gallon hot water heater never runs out of hot water. Everything is first class. The living room, dining room and kitchen all run together, so a large family can spread out but still be together in the same area. Most guests are amazed at how spacious a 2250 SF unit is.

Tidewater is the closest condo on the beach to the new Panama City Beach Airport. McDonald's, Arby's and Pizza Hut are less than a block away. Dusty's seafood is two blocks away and is the best Seafood in PCB. With Pier Park one direction and a Winn Dixie grocery store a half mile the other direction, you can walk to either one in 15 minutes. Once you have arrived at Tidewater, you really don't need a car. Just relax and enjoy the beautiful blue water. Expand the map on this site and you can see how close we are to new airport, Pier Park and the Ball Parks.

The price also includes fully paid rental for two pair of beach chairs with umbrellas every day. The two pair of beach chairs and umbrellas are reserved for your entire stay.

King bed in master bedroom and in the second master bedroon, then two queen beds in the other bedroom, sleeper sofa in the living room and then the bunk room has 2 pair of bunk beds with a trundle bed under one of the bunks (that is how it sleeps so many). All bedrooms are big rooms, as is the living/dining/kitchen area.

Tidewater is also located near Frank Brown Park (less than a mile) where many youth sporting tournaments are held.

Stated rental price includes all costs and fees and includes the $25 registration fee. Optional insurance and the VRBO online booking fee are not included. Don't be misled by others quoted base rates that are sometimes 60% of the final rate.

Tidewater Beach Resort is now requiring all guests register and has implemented a $25 resort registration fee. I have already paid that fee. This fee covers 3 parking passes and 11 guest wristbands for the condo. Kids under 5 do not need an armband. You will need to check in with one picture ID per condo at the concierge desk located on the second floor at some point after you arrive.

VRBO/Homeaway is now charging a % of booking fees to the guest. This as implemented in February 2016 and will show up on your booking request as a service fee. This is not a credit card convenience fee, but a charge from VRBO/Homeaway. If you use the online booking feature, you will pay that additional fee over and above my regularly quoted rate. If you book directly with me, you avoid that fee.

If price shopping, compare price per square foot of condo. My condo measures 2250 square feet

About The Owner

I bought the condo in July 2009. I looked for over a year for the perfect unit for my brothers, sisters and my own kids and grandkids. This is the perfect condo. If you stay here, you will see why I choose it over all the others. Steve LaForge

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Florida North West

This is one of two condo stacks with direct gulf front and pool visibility. Mom can sit on the balcony and watch kids in the gulf and the pool without getting out of her chair. The low floors are a must because the elevators can be difficult to say the least.

What makes this condo unique

You don't need a car. Everything you need is within walking distance.

Excellent for large families.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the most nicest and spacious condo that we have stayed in. We have a large family with two toddlers and we fit in this condo perfectly. The condo was very clean. The location is also fantastic as well. Steve is very accommodating and fantastic to work with!! We will most definitely be staying in this condo again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stephanie. I'm glad you liked it. I try to under promise and over deliver. I do believe it is as nice as any condo in PCB. The location and views are as good as it gets. I hope to see you again soon.

Very clean and open. Furnishings were all up to date.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the condo. The only issues we had were the parking arrangements( across the street in a parking garage),very slow elevators(we used the stairs since it was 3rd floor), and all the hot tubs were always full of small kids.

This unit was PERFECT for my family's vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This unit was very large, was located in the BEST spot on the property, overlooked the beach and pool from the large balcony, and was clean and well supplied. The elevators on the property are very slow due to the large number of units, but the location made taking the stairs that short distance very easy. The property is located within walking distance of restaurants and shopping but enough off the beaten path that the pool and beach were never crowded. The owner was always available and very helpful. Parking was provided across the street and the covered walkover from the garage provided easy access. The beach chairs and umbrellas were supplied by the owner and were an added plus. I highly recommend this rental.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The unit is amazingly large and can accommodate large groups. In our case, the ten of us fit very comfortably in the unit. The location and facility are very nice and while we were there in the off season, it made for a very quiet getaway. I would definitely recommend.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Awesome LOCATION and UNIT!! We really enjoyed the unit :) It was clean and the third floor allows you to avoid the sometimes slow elevators. The owner was very cooperative with a pre and post email about the condo and our stay. I highly recommend the unit and we will stay again in the near future. The unit is perfect for a large group or family.
