Description

Watercrest #1008 - Sunsets and Dolphins - PLEASE EMAIL US FOR ALL INQUIRIES

Enjoy sun all day on the pool deck or in the seasonally heated pool or just walk right down on to the beach just feet away.  The pool is open-concept with no "cage" cover, making for amazing star-gazing while relaxing in the hot-tub after your day of fun – the sunsets will take your breath away!  You are almost assured of seeing dolphins swim by. 

You'll enjoy high quality furnishings and bedding's throughout. All bedrooms offer flat screen TV's. The living room features a flat screen TV and the master Bedroom Suite also has a flat screen TV. The kitchen is stocked with every gadget you’ll need to prepare a gourmet meal – all you need to do is decide if you want to eat inside at the dining table or outside on the lanai – both have fantastic water views! This 2/2 unit is completely remodeled and has everything new.  All new appliances, flooring, paint and furnishings. This condo is absolutely PERFECT. Cant say that about too many condo's here on the beach. Master bedroom has a King size bed and bedroom #2 has two Queen size beds. In the living room you have a Queen size pull out couch allowing you to sleep comfortably 8 people. This unit also comes with FREE BEACH SERVICE! 

No detail has been over looked. This condominium complex offers unusual privacy and features lush tropical landscapes as well. The pool deck has sun all day long and offers gorgeous sunsets! 

This condo is within a 5 minute drive from food stores, shopping, restaurants and pubs. 
There’s plenty to do: Rent a pontoon boat by the half day or full day at the marina which is 5 minutes from the condo. Pack a lunch and explore Shell Island and collect some of the Worlds Best Sea Shells. Within a 20 minute drive you can be at Pier Park (170 acres of shopping and restaurants). Panama City is an old fishing Village that is a must see. Just back over the bridge you go and you will end up down town. Take a half day trip and have lunch there, exploring the local color along the way.

Para Sailing is available right down on the beach in front of the condo, including jet ski rentals and banana boat rides as well. The State Park is within a couple of minutes drive from the condo. Enjoy biking or walking up and down the famous Thomas Drive (known in several country songs and even some movies too). There are bikes that can be rented by the week or day along Thomas Drive. And dont forget Outlaws Golf Cart Rentals. They even deliver to your condo.

There is no doubt. You will be pleased with a decision to book this magnificent condo.

Unique Benefits

This condo is a 5 minute drive from several of Panama City Beach's finest restaurants, shopping and food stores. The State Park is within a couple of minutes drive away. Enjoy biking or walking around the lake at the park and even see the local alligators too!

Why Kids Love It

The white sandy beach of course. But dont count out the pool either. Take the kids to the State Park for pics and videos of this fabulous place and even watch them swim in the "kiddie pool" which is a protected piece of water the is only about 18 inches deep. With super clear water this has to be one of the best snorkeling adventures around.

Area Information

Located on the very quiet end of Thomas Drive where you'll not be bothered by traffic found on the main roads. The exposure of this property will assure sun on the pool deck and perfect sunsets as well. Being right on the Gulf of Mexico, you will see that dolphin sitings are very common.

Attractions Within Short Driving Distance

Shipwreck Island Water Park: Amazing
Zoo World
Gulf World
Outlaws Scooter Rentals: They even deliver
Go Cart Tracks
Mini Golf
Jet Ski Rentals
Pontoon Boat Rentals

Inside Scoop

Rent a Pontoon Boat and visit Shell Island for some of the best Sea Shells in the World. 
As a condo owners who rents out their condo it is important to provide the most cost effective way to make our condo available to guests. Many of the "bigger" players such as Homeaway, VRBO, TripAdvisor, Airbnb and others now charge guests "BOOKING FEES" which is resulting in guests paying up to 20% more for their vacation than they have to. Simply stick with sites such as our website www.sandcastlevacationspcb.com or Emerald Coast By Owner - ECBYO, or other new companies where the "old model" has been maintained. NO booking fees to guests. The condo owner pays a flat "subscription fee" to advertise their units on ECBYO.
No pets, no smoking and you must be 25+ to rent.

My nephew has never been to the ocean before and as soon as he walked in the door the view was the first thing we all saw and he ran to the doors and said oh wow oh wow look at this wow it is so beautiful! It was the greatest thing ever! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful condo!

I just returned from a stay at WaterCrest booked through Sandcastle Vacations PCB with Eric and Debby Henderson. The entire process from booking to checkout was simple and pleasurable. Eric and Debby are easily accessible and helpful with any questions that may arise. Their response time is speedy, and my security deposit was released the day after checkout. The condos I have stayed in the past three years have been clean, beautiful, and well stocked. My favorite aspects of the condos are the amazing views, the size of the units, and the convenience of the location. Also, I felt safe at WaterCrest. The security personnel are diligent and always visible. I highly recommend a stay at WaterCrest, and Sandcastle Vacations PCB will make your vacation a most enjoyable experience.

We had a great time in PCB this winter. Our unit 1008 was just perfect. The view is so awsome. We have so many pictures of the beautiful sunsets. The unit was freshly painted and new furniture sure was a great surprise. We will be back again in 2023 !! Thank you Eric and Debby for taking such care of us during our stay.

Thanks Eric and Debby    Jan 01, 2022

review star

Eric & Debbie,
This was our second time staying at 1008 Watercrest & it was great, as usual.  Our 3 months on site always gives us the opportunity to get away from the Missouri winter months.  What makes our stay special is the people we have met both at Watercrest & neighboring condos.  It is something we always look forward to.  
Was everything perfect this year?  No.  We had continuing issues with the elevators & the beach was rebuilt during our stay.  However, that is all part of life circumstances.  The true measure of our condo is what our friends think of 908 - they love it!  As a result we entertain often & always talk up the benefits of life at Watercrest.
Bottom line - we look forward to the next number of years at 908 Watercrest.  Thank you, Eric & Debbie, for all that you do.
Sincerely,
Kirk & Nancy Heinemann

Dolphins galore!    Jun 26, 2021

review star


We had such an amazing time. The view was breathtaking and we were able to watch dolphins from our balcony every morning. The unit was super spacious and had everything we needed. The location is perfect because you are close to things but also far enough to not be in the middle of all the craziness.  Definitely a vacation our family will never forget. Thank you  [😊]

I can’t say enough of how awesome this experience has been working with Eric on our stay at Watercrest. Any and everything I needed or question I had was answered and attended to very quickly. From my first phone call to issues we had when we arrived. The condo was beautiful and so very roomy. If and when we get to return to Panama City Beach I will definitely call on Eric’s help. Thank you for making our trip one to remember.

Watercrest Unit 1008 - Eric Henderson    Jun 23, 2018

review star

The unit was very clean and beautiful. We loved the big table to sit the entire family. We loved the fact there was two full size beds in the guest room. The boys took that room and our daughter could choose between the sleeper sofa or sleeping in the Hammock. Yes there was so much room in the condo that my son brought his hammock and stand; he left it set up all week and we had no trouble getting around it. The view from the master was breathtaking and loved having a patio right off the bedroom. However, my favorite part about the entire condo was the view. The oversized windows gave you a unobstructed view that leftyku speechless! I would highly recommend it!!!!

Julie Spence's reply:

We are always so happy to see our guests enjoy themselves. We keep a very clean and tidy condo for all our renters. And yes Robin is correct, from the floor to ceiling glass windows, the views are totally amazing.
