About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, Ocean Front Master, Free Beach Service,

Imagine ocean waves and sea breezes lulling you to sleep at night and gently waking you in the morning. This is one of the few Tidewater units with a MASTER BEDROOM FACING THE GULF. Newly painted and tastefully decorated, this 1 BR 2 BA unit sleeps six comfortably.

The MASTER BEDROOM has a king-size bed, flat screen TV and DVD player, large chest of drawers and spacious closet. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to the balcony and a spectacular view of the emerald gulf coast. The private Master Bathroom is just a few steps away.

The LIVING ROOM offers breathtaking views of the Gulf through nine-foot-high glass doors that lead to the balcony. This spacious room includes a sleeper sofa that folds out to a Queen-size bed. A 50' flat screen TV and DVD player lets you watch DVDs or movies online through your Amazon Prime or Netflix account.

The open and airy KITCHEN is equipped with a stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster and garbage disposal. It comes stocked with plates, glasses, mugs, utensils, pots and pans. Plus, a converted pantry gives you extra space for your groceries (a feature not available in all units). The granite top bar includes 3 bar stools and the nearby dining table seats an additional 3 people.

The bunk bed is not in the hallway (like most units), but tucked away in its own cozy BUNK ROOM. The adult-sized beds have extra thick, comfy mattresses. The closet has a chest of drawers and a TV that plays DVDs (only). So the kids can have a place of their own to relax and enjoy movies. It has quick access to the second bathroom, which also contains a stackable washer and dryer.

The 30 foot BALCONY is the widest of any 1 BR at Tidewater. There are four comfortable outdoor chairs and glass patio table.


Located on the 22nd floor, the views are splendid on both sides. Street noise and loud music are minimized at this height. The unit is set back from the main hallway (more privacy) but near one of the lesser-used elevators.


This beautiful resort is right on the water and one of the newest high-rises in Panama City Beach. Tidewater's many amenities include 2 large outdoor pools, 2 outdoor hot tubs, an indoor pool, sauna, steam room, FREE movie theater and video game arcade. The fitness center and 2 indoor hot tubs look out on the beach's emerald waters.


Just a half-mile away is the popular Pier Park, a 900,000 ft. complex that includes shops, restaurants, bars, 16-screen movie theater, IMAX theater, amusement park, fishing pier and more. Other nearby attractions include Wonderworks, Shipwreck Island Water Park, Gulf World, Zoo World, Frank Brown Recreational Park, Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum, miniature golf and more.


• Tidewater requires all guests to pay a $25 registration fee per party to be paid in advance or upon arrival.

• Absolutely NO SMOKING is allowed in the unit, balcony or hallway.

• Absolutely NO PETS are allowed.

• Payments by credit card are subject to transaction fees, which are subtracted from the security deposit

• Renters must be 25 years or older.

• Rates are based on availability and subject to change without notice.

About Ted and Allison Fabella

My wife Allison and I are both professionals that live in Atlanta, Georgia. We have been married 16 years and have a beautiful son. We want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Ted and Allison Fabella purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ted and Allison Fabella chose Florida North West

We loved this unit the moment we saw it - especially the spectacular views from the master bedroom. Tidewater is walking distance to Pier Park, but away from the older cluster of mega-resorts a few miles away. It feels more private and less crowded on the beach and on the street.

What makes this condo unique

We wanted the condo to be relaxing, peaceful and stress-free for us and our guests. Avoiding loud or overly bright colors, the rooms are painted in warm, inviting, lighter tones. We supply the unit with everything we can think of that would enhance your stay. We continually try to add or improve upon it.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Excellent retreat, exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We watched rays circling and jumping from our balcony over the broad sweep of Panama City Beach. We spent a beautiful Christmas week hosted by Ted and Allison who were responsive to ensure we had a great stay. On two days there was some daytime renovation noise from a nearby unit that Ted and Allison worked with security to minimize the noise and enforce work hour restrictions. Building staff said some units like to do updates in winter low season. The rest of our stay was quiet.

The condo is in excellent condition and furnished tastefully. Furniture and bedding all high quality. Quality blackout curtains. Kitchen fully equipped. Two full bathrooms. All spotlessly clean. Plenty of space for a family to relax.

Tidewater's facilities are solid, with indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzi/sauna/steam and fitness center. We did not try the on-site restaurant. Some duplicated facilities like the second restaurant close in winter low season but did not impact our stay. Security is available on-site 24 hours for any requests and all staff are friendly.

Tidewater is an excellent location on the beach with walking distance of Pier Park with its shopping mall, movie theater and entertainment at Pier Park as well as supermarkets and Dusty's Oyster House. That section of the beach is excellent and quiet, far from the party areas to the east.

Loved our stay at Tidewater!

Tidewater Beach Resort is a great property. Good location, staff very friendly, we'll maintained, great view!

Owner's Response: When shopping for a condo, we looked at other resorts with far away parking or were far from the water. Others were more "little kid"-centric. We agree that Tidewater has a good mix of amenities and beach proximity.

Just like the pictures

  • 4 of 5

The condo was just like the pictures. We loved waking up to the view of the ocean every morning. Also, the privacy of the balcony was awesome. You cannot see your neighbors or any other condos, just ocean. If you are wanting to people watch, then I suggest a lower level, because at the 22nd floor you have to crain your neck to look down at the coast. Almost every morning we watched a sea turtle swim by. We also watched a large group of 5+ dolphins playing, sting rays, and bunch of fish. Check-in was super easy and parking was not bad. Elevators were a little slow, but that is expected when there are so many floors to cover. And we absolutely loved the beach service!

I would recommend spending a day at St. Andrews Park. We found many shells there, not too many were at the condo.

Owner's Response: We noticed the absence of shells too. Maybe because its the gulf rather than the ocean? Anyway, our guests do seem to love how soft and "sugary" the sands are. Thanks for your comments.

An ok unit for the money

  • 3 of 5

The unit was overall not in bad shape. Great view of dolphins almost every morning from the balcony. The owners worked with us on getting it booked which we were thankful for. We had a few things like stained sheets(still smelled clean), and a dryer that seemed like it was not drying correctly that keeps me from giving it a better rating.

Owner's Response: We apologize if the cleaning didn't meet expectations. We pride ourselves in trying to give our guests the best possible exprience. We''ve had conversations with our cleaning service to ensure it doesn't happen again in the future. I hope you consider staying with us again in the future. Update: a brand new washer/dryer has been installed in the unit

A million dollar view!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week's stay!!! The unit was stocked with everything we could ever need, and it was exceptionally clean. We enjoyed waking up each morning to the sights and sounds of the Gulf outside the sliding doors of our bedroom. The living room furniture was comfy, as was the master bedroom mattress. We would come back to this location again and would recommend it. Many super restaurants in the area; convenient shopping close by. Beach is clean and beautiful here - truly the Emerald Coast!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Having the new Pier Park shopping complex nearby (within walking distance) has been great. And the City of Panama City Beach continues to improve and develop the area.
