About Wanda Rehberg

The owners are both CPA's with an eye for detail. We have recently purchased this condo so our calendar shows a lot of availability!

We chose Watercrest because we love their huge floor plans. This 3BR/3BA unit has a whopping 1440 square feet. We love the large balcony and tennis court.

We dislike the parking garages and the hassels of crosswalks of Front Beach Road. You will not hear road noise from your room!

Our desire is to rent condo that exceeds our renter's every expectations. We want you and your family to have the perfect vacation.

Since we live fairly close to PCB, we spend time there ourselves so we find all of those little things like burned out bulbs or squeaky hinges that need attention. This condo is treated as our second home and it shows.

Wanda Rehberg purchased this condo in 2011

Why Wanda Rehberg chose Biltmore Beach

Watercrest offers the largest floorplans in PCB. Our unit is 1440 square feet! There are ample parking spaces right in front just steps away from one of the elevators. There are NO GARAGES OR WALKOVERS!

You won't have to park in a loading/unloading zone. You'll park steps away from the elevators.

Watercrest units wrap around a large atrium. The way the building is laid out, the units are set back from the elevators and halls so you won't hear a lot of noise from people coming and going. There are plenty of elevators. There are four elevators and only 10 units per floor! Having such little foot traffic means it quiet which is especially nice if you want to sleep in!

Using Back Beach Road, you can get to Pier Park in minutes, without all of the traffic headaches.

It's simply the best!

What makes this condo unique


Watercrest floorplans, amenities, it's location on the quiet end of the beach make it the ideal condo for your rental. The parking is easy and hassle free. They have tennis, raquetball and shuffle board courts.

If you like to sit near the pool but don't want too much sun, there is a nice covered area with tables and chairs. You can sit in the cool shade and relax and keep an eye on your family.

There are men's and women's fitness rooms which have saunas.

There is a hot tub outside.

The pool is heated in the winter and there is also a kiddy pool.

The 3 BR units have two gulf front master bedrooms that open to the balcony.

One Master has a King, the second has a Queen. There is also a sleeper-sofa. The 3rd Bedroom has one Queen and One Twin. We also have a roll away bed.

All three bedrooms plus the den have flat screen televisons and cable. The den has a new DVD player.

All three bedrooms have their own private bath! No more waiting on a free bathroom!

The kitchen has both bar stools and a table with six chairs.

There are plenty of seating places on the large balcony. The balcony has a direct, unobstructed view of the beach.

Watercrest has only 10 units on each floor. You will be able to find chairs by the pool or on the sunning deck.

There is a beach chair rental company right in front of the building. Chairs are available to rent for a fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

One of the best condos we have ever stayed at while visiting PCB! This unit had plenty of room for all of our family, including grandchildren. Can't say enough about how accommodating this unit is, very well furnished with lots of extras. very clean and very nicely decorated. The view from the 4th floor balcony is absolutely the best. We definitely were not ready to leave when our stay ended. Will be recommending to all my family and friends, hope this unit will be available for our next beach trip!

Nice area and great views

  • 4 of 5

The homeowner is fantastic responds very fast to email. The condo is not up to date. Went to other one owned by this person and the other condos are very much updated. But for the price it was very nice. Would have stayed longer but Hurricane Irma changes those plans. The beach and pool was very easy to get to and very nice. Will rent again in the future.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We loved the place! The only downside was the balcony rails were too far apart for little ones. Ours couldn't go outside without being held. It should have some type of screen for protection. But would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Beautiful Beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

The views from our condo were amazing. Two of the bedrooms had floor to ceiling glass doors, so you could wake up and watch the ocean. The condo was roomy and well kept. The owners were attentive to all of our needs. The location was towards the end of the Lower Lagoon, which cut down on traffic. It was a perfect week, and we would definitely go back.
