Why Andy Martin chose Panama City Beach

We felt that Tidewater and West Panama City Beach offer better value with the same spectacular beaches, and our luxury condo at a much lower price for our guests than other beaches. It is in a convenient location for travelers. It is located close to the airport, Pier Park, and many attractions. This is a great family vacation area. We also discovered the value of this beach vs. Destin, Seaside, Watercolor or any of the beaches on Highway 30-A. We are 10 minutes from Rosemary beach and the prices are so much lower on everything. The food is fabulous, the portions are big and much more affordable.

What makes this condo unique

You don't have to leave the resort - Tidewater has everything you need right on the property. 2 outdoor pools, an indoor pool, a movie theater, workout center, restaurants, convenience store and game room. The beach service has wave runners, kayaks, sailboats and comfy loungers. The balcony views are incredible. The water is so clear you can see fish swimming from our floor. Tidewater Resort is a truly complete full service property that has all the amenities of a 5-star resort.

Perfect Vacation Condo!

  • 5 of 5

I am blown away by this condo and can not wait to come back next year. The master bed was so beautiful and comfortable. The walk-in closet for the master suite was large enough to put a pack and play in and the baby slept very well in there. On top of a wonderful room the owners were the nicest to deal with. This vacation really would not have been this perfect with out this room. Views are unbeatable from the 27th floor. High ceilings make it feel like the ocean is in the living room. CANT WAIT TO BE BACK NEXT YEAR.

Owner's Response: Thanks Brittney. We loved having you and your family as our guests. We are glad that you enjoyed the new, luxury mattress we put on the master bed. We enjoy working with people and try to be very accommodating. We are thankful you enjoyed our beautiful home and some good, old-fashion southern hospitality. We love having repeat guests, and we cannot wait to host you again.

Absolutely lovely beach front property!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo was just as described and in a wonderful location in Panama City Beach. It was a short walk to Pier Park which had lots of shopping and restaurant options. My two teenage girls were able to find lots of fun yet safe after dark options such as a foam party (I had to Google it haha) Just in front of the building there was kayak, paddle board, and wave runner rental, in addition to banana boat rides, and para sailing.The two pools, on-site convenience store, beach chairs, and parking ramp all added to a great experience. There was basically something here for all families regardless of ages! Andy was a delight to work with when we had some trivial issues with the WiFi and he was very prompt in his reply. I would 100 percent recommend this property!

A quick get away

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the largest and the nicest condo we have ever stayed in. From the floors to the decorations it is top shelf. We are looking forward to coming back soon and staying longer. The views of the crystal clear water and sandy white beaches never gets old.

Amazing condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Andy and Kathy's condo. They were very nice to work with. The condo is huge compared to most 2 BR units. It is spotless and very well decorated. My family said it was the nicest place we have ever stayed. We cannot wait to return.

Beach Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our beach home away from home. We love this place so much, we decided to stay for a month! This unit is one of the best available. (We compared!) It is on the penthouse level and has high ceilings, spacious rooms and a huge master bathroom. What I love most is the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gulf from the living room and master bedroom. The view is spectacular! Bring your binoculars to catch amazing views of rays, mantees and an occasional shark. I got spoiled with a month of sensational sunsets. Perfect for a romantic getaway.
