Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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 squeeky hinges that need attention. This condo is treated as our second home and it shows.

Why the Owner Chose Crescent Beach, Lower Grand Lagoon, FL, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
WATERCREST IS A BEACH FRONT PROPERTY! THE COMPLEX SITS RIGHT ON THE GULF! 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. We have pre-paid for rental of two chairs for the entire season. That saves you $140 per week.
