About Jim Armstrong

My wife and I live in Chattanooga, TN. We bought our first condo at Nautical Watch in 1994. It is a two bedroom in the same building. When unit E2 became available we decided to buy it. It is a great rental that will accommodate up to 4 people. We also own a condo in Gatlinburg, TN. We have 5 childrend and 10 grandchildren. We allow our children to use the condo when it is not rented and they thoroughly enjoy it.

Jim Armstrong purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jim Armstrong chose Biltmore Beach

We like Nautical Watch because it is located on the East end of the beach away from all the heavy traffic during Spring Break and Summer. It is very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, etc. Nautical Watch is a small family type atmosphere with only 81 units located in 6 buildings.

What makes this condo unique

The most unique benefit at Nautical watch is its location and next would be the size of the complex. With 6 buildings and each has 3 floors, it is very convenient to loading/unloading luggage, groceries, etc. You can park very close to the condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family renjoyed a three night visit at this condo which was fully equipped and met all of our needs. The only thinks we needed were toothbrushes and a change of clothes. The furnishings were exceptional. Can you imagine a comfortable sofa bed....well you will find it here along with a chargming beach decor. We found Mr. Armstrong to be gracious and attentive owner. We look forward to visiting this lovely condo again next year.

Wonderful "mini" vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet location is everything the description says. It is literally 10 steps from parking to the front door. The condo is perfectly furnished and they even had coffee on the counter! The walk to the beach is down a sidewalk and a short boardwalk to the "awesome" gulf. You don't cross the street to get there. I've never seen the water more beautiful. It was sparkling clean, with nothing at all in the water. You can rent chairs and umbrellas on the beach right in front of the gulf side condos! The pool area was wonderful. Grills provided to use, lounge chairs, umbrellas....what else do you need but a bathing suit and sunscreen! The bed was very comfortable and everything was perfect!Thank you for a much needed diversion! The location of the condo is definitely not in the high traffic area. We found a great coffee shop where they roast the beans and several good places to eat! It's very easy to come and go from this location. We'll definitely be back! Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that people in near by units were loud. We don't normally have any problem with loud neighbors because our complex primarily caters to families.

This was the perfect place for our family. The pool was right outside the sliding door and the beach was a short walk. Our two small boys had a blast. Jim was great with communication and even called to check and see if we made it safely. We will definitely stay here again!

Nice older condo. Enjoyed the stay.

  • 4 of 5

This condo was great for our 2 day getaway. The unit was clean when we arrived. The pool is literally right by the back patio. We thought that was pretty awesome bc the kids could go to the pool even if my wife and I didnt. We could still see the entire pool area from the back patio. Even though this unit is not gulf view the beach access is a short walk and once your feet hit the sand its very close to the water. We have stayed at alot of places in destin and pcb but this was prob the shortest walk to the water we have found from a unit not a gulf view. As far as negative stuff goes the only negatives we found were that the unit had a stale/smoked in smell when we arrived. We attributed it to someone who may have rented the unit earlier in the week not adhering to the NO SMOKING policy the owner has. But we aired it out and it was fine. The only other thing is that the unit needs some updating but nothing that would prevent us from renting again. For the price it was a good deal. The 115/night doesnt include taxes and fees obviously. After cleaning fee and taxes it was closer to 180/night .Just remember to read the entire overview and rental agreement. There was a $75 cleaning fee that wasnt included when we booked .WE completely overlooked it when we booked and it was boldly and plainly stated in the overview of the unit. The owner was immediately responsive to any issues we had.
