Why Harold Vaughn chose Biltmore Beach

Panama City is one of the places we have been coming to vacation for many years. We chose Watercrest because it is well managed and the units are larger and well designed which works for our large family. We were looking for something we would be comfortable owning for many years. Through years of experience we knew we wanted to buy on the Thomas Drive section of the beach due to the quieter, family friendly atmosphere.

Renovated 2BR 2BA Ocean Front Condo - Sleeps 8
average rating of 5.0 based on 16 reviews

The condo was by far the prettiest & cleanest condo we have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

This condo had so much more than we have ever encountered before on vacation. Garbage bags, dishwasher tabs, even beach toys for children! And it was so pretty. We enjoyed our stay so much. The owner was very easy to work with and I know we will stay there again! This condo had everything we look for in a rental.

Great Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious condo w/ modern decor and all the amenities. The wrap around balcony is the largest we've ever seen; although the view from the master bedroom is nothing but a parking lot, the view from the living room is spectacular, which makes it all worthwhile. The property is located on the east end of Panama City Beach (PCB) far away from the ridiculously heavy traffic and crowds on the west end. (The west end of PCB is a MESS these days!) We never had any problem with parking, or with overcrowding at the pool or the poolside concession stand. There are plenty of elevators, which is also a huge plus--No waiting 10 minutes every time you want to catch an elevator, like we've seen at other condos on PCB! Very easy access to the beach, which also was not overcrowded. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property.

Great Vacation and Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We use to go to Panama City Beach when our kids were younger but as they got older we started going to Destin. This year we decided to go back to Panama City. I have rented numerous condos on VRBO but this condo by far was the best equipped one we have ever stayed in. Anything you need is in the unit. The owner was great to work with and the condo was very clean. The facility was very nice also, never had to wait a long time for elevator(would be nice if there was a fan in it to circulate the air. The only complaint we had was the trash truck at 5am on Sunday. We will definitely rent this unit again.
