Watercrest #908 2/2 Sleeps 8

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
Sea Screamer
Pirate Ship
Snorkel Trips

Favorite Places To Eat

Schooners (last local beach club offers live music, dancing and the firing off of the canon at sunset), World Known Captain Andersons, Hooks Bar & Grill, Grand Marlin Fine Dining, Busters Pub, Patches (local watering hole with music), Pinnapple Willies and so many more.

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 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.

We had an awesome vacation at our beach front condo! The rooms were beautiful and clean with a great view. But even better was the fantastic above and beyond communication and customer service from the owners! I will not hesitate to recommend sandcastle and Eric and Debby to anyone! 5 star stay!

Amazing!    Jul 24, 2021

review star

The whole place was roomy and comfortable for the 4 adults and 2 kids we had with us. My husband and I stayed in the master bedroom. The bed was so comfortable and the view from our window was amazing! The floors were a little dirty when we arrived though, especially in our bathroom. The balcony had an excellent view of the beach, we saw a lot of sea creatures from there (dolphins, sting rays, birds).



Very roomy    Jul 17, 2021

Everything was great!  We love the wide open floor plan and the decor. Beds are comfy too. 2nd year for us to stay here. We love the location too, not far from many great restaurants. Thank you very much.

Our 3-month stay at Watercrest through Sandcastle Vacations was absolutely wonderful. My wife and I love the Watercrest location and all that it provides. Anytime we needed something, Eric & Debby were quick to respond. 
As we walk the beach and talk to other snowbirds, we always recommend Sandcastle to them. We plan to make PCB our destination for many more years to come. Hopefully all of that time will be with Sandcastle Vacations.
Thanks so much.

Cant say enough about this condo. Extremely clean and windows the entire way around the large living room. Almost didnt want to leave the condo. Sandcastle Vacations - Eric & Debby were so attentive to our needs and made everything just right for the twins. Definitely going to come back.

WE LOVE THIS CONDO!!!!    Jun 01, 2019

review star

This condo is huge inside. Super large living room overlooking the beach. Sunsets were fabulous and in the master bedroom there was floor to ceiling glass for the view of a lifetime. My wife enjoyed her morning coffee in bed looking at the beach. And loved seeing that smile on her face as well. The kids enjoyed their own tv in their room too. Just a perfect condo. Loved it!!!

Amazing! The condo was as advertised and more! It was immaculate. I have stayed at several different places in PCB, older and new, and this has taken over as my favorite! I will come back to Watercrest. Eric was fantastic to work with! He helped make this a very enjoyable experience!! I will continue to rent through Eric as this was a very positive experience!
