First Floor - Oceanfront 2/2 Sleeps 8

Welcome to your Sandcastle: Now this is where Fantasy becomes Reality. This first floor unit has a complete remodel done to it. It is a 2/2 unit with a King size bed in the master, 2 queen beds in the 2nd bedroom and a queen size pull out sofa sleeper in the living room letting you sleep 8 comfortably. Very well appointed condo that the owners have spared no expense to making it feel like your home away from home. Open and fully stocked kitchen with all cookware needed and a bar area with stools for the kids as well. Poolside Tiki bar for your afternoon snacks. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars, pubs and the State Park as well where you can rent your own pontoon boat and go swim with the dolphin. Not a bad way to start a memory now is it? No racquet ball courts at this time due to repairs being done. 

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

Favorite Places To Eat

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.

Eric and Debby,
Thank you so much for sharing your property at Watercrest unit 109. Everything was decorated so nice and very clean. I called Eric and couple of times and he was very helpful for anything we needed. Looking forward to coming again next year, Lord willing  [🙏]

Love this beach    Apr 23, 2022

Water crest #109 is a beautiful place to stay. We loved that it was on the first floor. Everything was clean and new. Eric and Debby were a great help and easy to deal with. We will be back!



Good time    Apr 16, 2022

review star

This condo has lots of room and is beautiful.  Beds are really comfortable too. Love that it’s on the bottom floor an can just walk right out to the pool and the beach. Plenty of seating on the patio which is great. The owners are pretty great! Had issue with the dryer and it was fixed the next day! They answered any questions I had really quick by email. 
The pool area was resurfaced while there so we couldn’t use the pool over half of the time we was here an wasn’t told that that was going to happen. With the ocean being cold the pool an spa would have been great to use.
Also could use some non stick frying pans but other then that is has been a great stay! I would definitely rent this place again!

Review    Apr 02, 2022

We spent our Spring Break vacation in #109 at Watercrest. We have stayed at Watercrest many times through VRBO and paid the ridiculous fees. Sandcastle Vacations does not have any additional fees, only tax and a reasonable cleaning fee. 
The condo is very spacious and beautifully decorated. You will have everything you need, especially if you like to cook your meals. Very nice oven!  We actually threw a surprise birthday party and used the nice platters and dishes. 
No problems sleeping because the beds are very comfortable. 
The unit is conveniently located on the ground level. Very easy to bring in luggage and groceries. 
The owners, Eric and Debbie do a great job with communication!! 
This by far was one of the best vacations at Watercrest. 
We will definitely be renting again from Sandcastle Vacations.

What a vacation!    Oct 02, 2021

Eric and Debby,
We had a great time.  Room #109 was great. We had an awesome view of the beach and ocean and we were right at the pool and spa.  There were 6 people in our party and we had plenty of room.  And I (Alana) loved the kitchen!  We cooked and ate in a big portion of the time. The cabinets were well stocked with whatever we didn't bring such as plates, utencils, and cooking tools.  I loved the refrigerator, big and roomy.  And I loved having the laundry room to keep the clothes washed up. The decor was beautiful.  Everyone at WaterCrest was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend  Watercrest #109 to anyone.
Thank you for an awesome vacation experience.
Alana and Brian McKee

The condo was very nice and roomy with a great first floor location.  The short walk to the beautiful beach was wonderful and the pool was always so clean and refreshing. 



Absolutely LOVED it!    Jul 10, 2021

We ABSOLUTELY loved our stay at Watercrest #109!!! The convenience of the first floor was exactly what we were looking for and we had a great beach/gulf view! The space was beautifully decorated and was everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. All of the amenities were up-to-date which made our stay very comfortable! We look forward to visiting again and would love to stay in the same unit when we return!

Watercrest 109 was the perfect ground floor place to stay for a month. The unit looks just like the pics. Easy access to pool and beach from private patio. Due to covid, we eat in so was nice to have a well equipped kitchen. A bonus is the large TVs in every room. Eric is there to quickly handle the few problems we had. I would definitely recommend the unit.

I cant believe how easy it was with no stairs and nothing but fun. Open layout, very roomy and Eric and Debby were fabulous hosts too. Going to come back this summer.

My family only gets to go on one vacation per year and this year we went to Panama City Beach and stayed at The Watercrest. This place is perfect for family vacations. This particular unit has the best sunsets though for sure. We even got Free beach service from the onsite Rental Company Sandcastle Vacations. The boys cant wait to come back.
