Nautical Watch is a great family complex with a wonderful tropical pool area that offers a unique shaped pool, grilling area, restrooms, & lounge chairs. This low rise townhome style offers a much more comfortable & friendly atmosphere than most hi rise complexes or hotels. Being in a top floor corner unit is a HUGE plus because there's no noise above and our corner unit provides even more privacy. The famous Schooners Restaurant is just a one mile walk down the beach toward the east, and it's three miles west to Spinaker, and four miles west to Pineapple Willy's….right in the perfect location. Montego Bay, Saltwater Grill, Angelos Steak House, Captain Andersons, and many other great restaurants are all just down the street.

AGE RESTRICTION OF 25 & OVER HIGHLY ENFORCED - proof of age is required. (NO unsupervised teenagers or young adults under 25 allowed without PARENTS STAYING in the condo the ENTIRE TIME). We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. If for any reason a guest renting from us (or that guest's family, friends, etc.) causes a disturbance or disruption in which we, the Nautical Watch management company or law enforcement are called, that guest and everyone in his or her party will be evicted and both the deposit & rent paid will be forfeited without any exceptions. This unit is on the top (3rd) floor. No elevator, stairs only. We will be glad to provide references of previous guests, if desired; we are honest & fair, and treat everyone the way we expect to be treated! :)

BEWARE!! 'Beach or Gulf View' doesn't necessarily mean BEACH FRONT! Our condo is RIGHT ON THE BEACH and offers unobstructed, amazing views--just what you expect to see! This is how Nautical Watch is laid out: There are 2 BEACH FRONT Buildings, A & B. They have 15 units in each bldg, 5 units in each bldg are 3rd floor loft units. The 4 other bldgs., C - F, are pool front buildings and are located BEHIND buildings A & B. When comparing complexes, units & prices, be sure to make sure where exactly they are located in proximity to the actual Gulf & sand.

About Elizabeth

Elizabeth and Ed! We are just regular folks who enjoy Panama City Beach, and we would love to share our getaway home with you!

Elizabeth purchased this condo in 2013

Why Elizabeth chose Biltmore Beach

You can't get this close to the beach for the money! The views are spectacular, and Nautical Watch is quiet and family oriented. Our beachfront, top floor unit is by far the best value! And we've made this home comfortable for us to enjoy, so we know you will love it too! NEWLY RENOVATED MAIN LEVEL- MASTER/ KITCHEN & LIVINGROOM DEC. 2017- KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR NEW PICTURES IN JANUARY 2018

What makes this condo unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Elizabeth!

Sorry I am slow getting back to you... we took our time coming home and didn't have access to secure wifi. I just wanted to tell you thank you so much for the use of the condo! It was easily the nicest place we have stayed on a vacation, and Nautical Watch is a lovely complex (personally, I would like to see all beach front properties be like it, instead of the high-rise monstrosities). The kids liked their little hideaway upstairs, and their dad & I enjoyed the huge bedroom & comfy bed (I really want a set of those sheets!) We also loved the ginormous couch with room for everyone to stretch out on for afternoon naps or watching t.v. at night. Since the day we booked, we were baffled at how we found such a nice place for the $85/night rate we paid, as I realize this is not your normal rate. Perhaps it was a listing error, but at any rate, we want to thank you because it definitely would have been out of our price range otherwise, and it really made for an amazing vacation! It would likely be some time before we take another beach vacation, but we will definitely check with you first before doing so. We will be recommending you to our family & friends and I will be sure to write a review soon.

Thank you so much for all of your help and a terrific experience!

We loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Nautical Watch Beachfront turned out to be the perfect place for our family of four to getaway for fall break. The condo is exactly as it appears in the photos provided on the vrbo website. Everything you need to spend a week here is included. And I mean everything...this home is ready to be lived in. The kitchen is fully stocked which was a must for us. The beds are very comfortable. The loft area upstairs was a hit for our two sons. No waiting on elevators was awesome. The property was always clean and felt completely safe and secure. And the owner Elizabeth was super sweet and a breeze to work with. Upon checkout I learned that renovations are in store for the condo. But I don't see how it could get much better! We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Great location and fantastic condo!

This place truly had everything we needed for a vacation! And we loved walking down the steps and literally being on the beach. We will definitely be staying here again!

Our family of 4 just had a wonderful time at this condo. It had everything we needed and more. I just want to put it out there that the balcony on the condo is NOT covered. I did not know this until we got there, but no big deal. It is still great in the evening to catch the breath-taking sunset. Yes...the spiral steps are very narrow, however I knew this after reading reviews. My kids and I had no problem with them, but would not recommend anyone over 250lbs, or elderly to stay in the loft. The room was clean upon arrival, everything worked as it should. NO ELEVATORS. I knew this, so no problem, but for those of you who have difficulty with stairs, remember this is on the 3rd floor. Parking was nice, was able to park right next to the stairs almost every time. Kitchen/Bathroom VERY WELL equipped. Beds comfortable. BEACH SERVICE - WOW!!! Although you have to rent the umbrella chairs believe me it is worth it. We rented a set for the whole week. Jimmy who owns the beach service company made sure we had plenty of room by making sure no one would get too close every morning! We even had small beach chairs and umbrella of our own that they let us keep in there lock-box. They set-up our chairs for us every morning when they set up their chairs. He even has a Gator that he would pick you up at the beach entry and drive you down to your chairs if you had a large cooler or such! He gave my Grandmother and Grandfather a lift to the chairs, and back to the condo. I have to say, Jimmy really made our trip. Never had beach service like that. Remember, this does not come with the condo. BUT ITS WORTH IT!

The owners Ed and Elizabeth sent me an email shortly after arriving to make sure everything was fine, and to let them know about any issues. Would go back in a heart-beat!

Great week at the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The condo complex is very clean and well maintained. Our condo was also very clean and did not have any bugs, which we have encountered at almost all other places we have stayed. While the stairs were hard to navigate for an adult, my 2 kids did just fine. The AC unit in the smaller room was a hit as it kept the kids in a deep sleep. The only suggestions I would make would be to get a new toilet seat as it is worn down, consider updating the couch as there are a few dips in it, and add a blender to the unit. The owners were in constant communication with us leading up to our week at the beach and very prompt to respond to all questions we had. Their movie and book selection was also very good and had options for all ages and interests. The view was gorgeous and the walk to the beach was very short and easy with the location of the condo. Thank you, Ed and Elizabeth, for sharing your condo and making this a great week at PCB.

Best Beach View!

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay in this nice unit on PCB! We have spent many summer weeks on Florida Panhandle Beaches and this was probably our best location with its view and proximity to the ocean. The unit is decorated very nicely and very welcoming!

Be prepared to get your exercise here! Even though it's just 3rd floor, it's tough dragging luggage and beach stuff up and down.

The unit accomodates 6 adults but it can be crowded, especially for meals! Be warned that the spiral staircase is teen-ninsy!!! Walking up is tricky enough but trying to get any size suitcase up with you is nearly impossible!! I am small framed but my 6 foot 2 husband is not and he hardly fit on the narrow steps. I must say the stairs were a bit of a challenge every day.

The kitchen is so well stocked that you'll have a hard time finding a lot of space for groceries. We had bread and chips stuck down with the pots and pans! You'll have to be very creative here but there's just about everything you'll need.

Only thing not working was the icemaker (ice trays) and bathroom sink wouldn't drain correctly.

Oh yes, most importantly! Be very careful when heading out to the balcony! The metal frame of the sliding door is very high off ground and you must step over it! Though we were all aware, EVERYBODY tripped over it at least once! It could be dangerous to an elderly person.

Great condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great. A little smaller than what it looks like in the pictures and that was the only thing we found wrong with it. It was very well stocked with everything you could possibly need.
