About the property

Come enjoy the luxury and easy accessibility of the ground floor! Never deal with elevators, crowds, or the front of the building! Walk straight out of your balcony door to the hot tub, pool, and beach...steps away! Hedges and a path provide unparalleled privacy in a ground floor unit, without blocking your terrific view of the water one bit!

Welcome to Watercrest gulf front Condominiums in Panama City Beach, Florida. Luxurious floor plans in an elegant 18 story high-rise, each with a private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, are at the peak of your vacation. As elegant and beautiful as the “World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”. Resort amenity highlights include a large heated pool with expansive sun decks, clubhouse, lighted tennis courts, exercise rooms, racquetball court, and more. Inside your room you’ll enjoy tropical furnishings, fully equipped kitchens, washer & dryers... everything to make you feel at home. Near by is St. Andrews State Park, Schooner’s and Captain Anderson’s.

This particular is a ground floor 2br / 2ba unit that sleeps 8 comfortably. Everything in this condo has been redone and updated. Granite countertops, new appliances, the works.

The master bedroom has a king bed with a new mattress for your comfort. Also, a totally remodeled private full bath. This is a huge condo for being a 2br and has a very large ground floor balcony. It is also equipped with a flat screen TV.

The second bedroom is perfect for the kids or whole family with 2 king beds (huge room!) that comfortably sleep 4. This bedroom also has a completely remodeled full bathroom.

The master bedroom, guest bedroom, and the living room all have luxurious flat screen tvs.

The kitchen and dining rooms are well appointed for eating in and cooking for the whole family. Granite countertops in the kitchen, and bathrooms really set this condo apart from the rest. This condo will not disappoint!

Please inquire for rates and details.

What makes this condo unique

I chose this particular condo because it is has every benefit of a ground floor condo without the drawback of having every one on the pool deck walking by all day. It is private and tucked away from the crowds as you can see in the pictures. Also, it is super spacious for a 2 bedroom condo. Big enough for the whole family! Once you stay here, you will never go anywhere else!

The entire property was clean and well maintained, and the condo was comfortable and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the decoration and layout of the condo. The kitchen area was perfect sized, and the large bathrooms were convenient. The property was closely surveyed by security, which added to peace of mind. Check in and check out were painless, unlike other experiences we've had with condo rentals. We throughly enjoyed our stay with zero complaints.

Beautiful but damaged

  • 2 of 5

The condo was beautiful but there were a lot of issues. The glass top stove was cracked all to pieces but still worked, the refrigerator drawers were broken, the dryer was broken but they did fix it after 3 days, the washer broke all to peices, and emerald coast never got back to me. Under beds and dressers were dirty and had food under them, rhe fully stocked kitchen was a joke. The patio was filthy and they worked on our patio the entire time we were there, sawing and putting filler in which made a mess and to have workers on your patio from 9 am to 5pm was awful. Heavy machinery parked out side of our bedroom window, so no sleeping in while on vacation. And last but not least the 3 dead mice on traps underneath the stove!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend for anyone wanting a get away. Everything is available within a short distance. Beach just steps away - loved being on the ground floor and the great patio. Dining close by. Very relaxing.

Love This Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

After many years of vacationing in Florida - this was the best! Ground floor level made life easy. We parked near the door and it made bringing our luggage, groceries, and store purchases a breeze. We were steps from the pool and beach! The location was wonderful-Close to Destin, close to Seaside! We had never been to Florida in February but have decided it is the way to go.

This unit has two bedrooms and very comfortable and spacious.

What an awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located right on the beach in Panama City Beach. It is very accessible to local shops and restaurants. There are many options within a ten minute drive.

The condo was just as pictured in the photos, so you can see it is beautiful. Everything you need in the kitchen is there and then some. The view from the balcony and sitting out on the private patio was very relaxing. The best part of this condo is Emerald Coast Destinations are very pleasant to work with and answered all my questions before we arrived.

I would definitely stay here again. Hopefully this spring or summer!!!

We found the Water Crest through Emerald Coast Destinations. This was our first stay and we loved everything about the Water Crest. The condo was great and we loved the location...away from all of the traffic in PCB. We can't wait to return. We highly recommend this resort!
