About the property

2 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 8

We would like to invite you to our slice of paradise at the luxury WaterCrest Condominiums. Our unique

condominium is very family friendly and is one of the few at Watercrest that have a 16 by 16 private balcony. You can access the balcony from either the master bedroom or the large living room. The view is fantastic, the sunsets are unbelievable. With the unique balcony you can even watch storms come in from the ocean and never get wet!! With the big square-shaped balcony fear of heights is not a factor, you feel totally safe.

The bedrooms all have TVs with cable, DVD players. Our Condominium has been recently re-decorated and outfitted so all you have to do is come and enjoy!! The master bedroom has its own bathroom with a king-size bed and is off set from the second bedroom for extra privacy.( The second bedroom has 2 queen size beds). Our condominium is located on the sixteenth floor across from the elevators.

TRY US YOU WILL LOVE US: 'TRY US, YOU WILL LOVE US!' We have a family of six and have plenty of room to give each other space when needed. Having rented several condominiums for our summer vacations over the years, we tried to make our condominium very vacation friendly. New pots and pans, new dishwasher.....if interested we can e-mail more photos! For more detailed info please give us a call!

If there is a official notice of evacuation we will refund the rental on a prorated system

About Ginger Anderson

I am 62 and my wife is 54 working hard and can not wait to retire!!! We will be retiring to our condo. We are avid travelers

Ginger Anderson purchased this condo in 2002

Why Ginger Anderson chose Crescent Beach

We rented condos every year for 10 years in different states. We first rented at Watercrest in 2000, we really enjoyed our selfs and loved the beach best we been to EVER!!!! We rented again in 2001 and really checked out the area, we liked what we saw. In 2002 with a knot in our stomachs we bought Watercrest 1605. Living in Minnesota we loved the people food and the BEACH!!!!! We loved the big bedrooms and the square balcony that reminded us of our deck back home, not those 'skinny balconies that run the length of the condo'. When we looked at other condos the bedrooms were smaller and everything always seemed so cramped.

What makes this condo unique

Big square balcony, big big bedrooms high speed elevators and the best staff and cleaning crews a condo building can have. The on site parking is great no walking over or on a street to get to the building.

Steve and Ginger, we want to say that your condo was in excellent taste and we felt so at home in it. We love the huge deck. The weather wasn't the best this year but the deck made the days so much better. Look forward to renting from y'all again.

Fantastic Value

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Ginger: Pat and I would like to thank you for renting us your lovely Watercrest condo in Panama City Beach. Your condo was delightful and had everything we needed for our month's stay. We enjoyed the limited traffic of Watercrest's eastern location, though it was convenient to plenty of shopping and restaurants. Although this was February, most days were in the 60's or 70's, however I'd say that it was a bit warmer than normal. We spent numerous hours walking the beautiful beach or just sitting on the deck enjoying the amazing sunsets. Although I know you have some plans for some future upgrades, we found your condo to be clean, functional, and very 'homey'. Having spent significant time researching oceanfront rentals on the panhandle for the past 3 February's, I can confidently say that your condo and rental terms were clearly one of the best values I encountered. Once again, thank you both for allowing us the privilege of utilizing your condo, and for your always prompt and courteous responses to our questions or comments.

Recreation and Sports: Fishing enthusiasts, get ready to bait those hooks and fish the gorgeous Gulf Coast waters surrounding Panama City Beach! The remarkably deep waters off the coast of Panama City Beach put you as close to the action as you can get. Head out on a charter, guide, or headboat and spend a fun-filled day with the family on the Gulf of Mexico. Cast a line off the pier in St. Andrews State Park and get a taste of true Florida Gulf fishing. Panama City Beach diving is ideal, thanks to gorgeous emerald waters, sparkling Florida sunshine, and a multitude of natural, historical, and artificial reefs. Known as the 'Wreck Capital of the South,' the underwater environment offers an incredible area for divers to explore. Seek out that perfect hole-in-one while basking in the warm Florida sun or practice your putting on perfectly manicured greens. Whatever you need to get your game on track, you can find it at one of the Panama City Beach golf spots
