Perfect Sandcastle!!

A Panama City Beach vacation is bound to be enjoyed in this modern luxury Gulf front condo! Welcome to the most beautiful view of the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches.
Relaxation awaits you in this spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo. Newly renovated throughout. Updates even include the most comfortable new furnishings, unique beach decor, and quality linens. We think it's  absolutely perfect for family vacations! 
Some of our favorite features are the high ceilings, incredible kitchen and large dining area.  Although, the incredible view is likely the first thing you'll notice!  This is a desireable east side unit with the perfect balcony for enjoying the view. The floor to ceiling patio doors bring the living area outside. You'll step from the living room (or master bedroom) onto one of the largest and most private balconies found anywhere! The view goes for miles over the white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You'll sleep well in any room. Master bedroom features king bed, private bath, large closets, and patio access. Second bedroom has 2 Queen beds and plenty of room for the kids to play.  Every room complete with a flat screen TV.
What more could you need? 
Laundry area with washer and dryer. Free cable and WiFi. 
No noisy hallways or long waits for elevators. This small condo complex is the best! Newly redone sundeck, fabulous swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, fitness center, elevated lighted tennis courts, raquet ball, shuffleboard, pickle ball and more. Small building – with only 10 units per floor and 4 elevators. If we hadn't mentioned it -no noisy catwalks and no long waits for elevators.
No smoking. No pets. Over 21 to book. Resort rules apply. First parking pass is Free and the second parking pass is $40.  No more than 2 cars allowed per condo.
This place really is an absolute stand out!

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.

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.

We were very pleased with WaterCrest #1102. The condo was clean and up to date. The kitchen was very well stocked. Having a 2nd refrigerator was great.
Thank you,

Beautiful, clean, peaceful getaway with gorgeous views and easy beach access. 
The condo itself was absolutely gorgeous, spacious, and updated. Cleanliness is one of my top concerns when traveling and Watercrest #1102 surpassed my expectations. 
Eric and Debby even reached out mid stay to ensure we had all that we needed. Caring for guests is a small act that goes a long way. 
Thank you, Eric and Debby for sharing your beautiful condo with us! We will be back!!

Everything was simply perfect!    Jul 17, 2021

Everything was simply perfect! The condo was beautiful and the grounds were kept nice and clean. The second refrigerator was very handy! The only thing I would recommend is to bring additional blankets as there were no spare linens! Will rent from Eric and Debbie again!

Watercrest 1102 is a beautiful condo! There are so many special touches throughout the entire condo that added to the comfort of this unit. We loved the high end appliances, the self closing cabinets/drawers in the kitchen and bathrooms, the gorgeous decor and the comfy beds and furniture. It felt like a true “home away from home”. Our family absolutely enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this condo! 5/5 stars for us! Thank you Eric and Debby for the wonderful stay!

We have been vacationing in PCB for over 40 years, and this was our favorite condo, that we have ever stayed in. The interior of the condo is gorgeous. (Much prettier than the pictures.) There is nothing bad to say about it. Everything was perfect. The condo building itself is very nice. Great ocean views, on site security, easy parking, easy beach access, and the pool area and snack bar are great. The whole experience could not have been better. Eric and Debby were great to work with. Their office is right there on site, in case we needed anything. The Good Lord willing, we will be back next year for a Chapter 2. :) Thank you so much Eric and Debby for your kindness !!

Loved the view down to the pass    Mar 06, 2021

review star

My husband isnt much of a beach person (just us girls) so he sat on the balcony and watched the ships come in and out of the pass down by the park. He had so much fun and needed the relaxation for sure. Us girls spent every second we could on the beach. This condo has everything. Right down to super soft towels, comfy beds and open living area. Debbie was a doll. Thank you girl.

Home away from Home for a month. I love this place .Watercrest Condo #1102 is spectacular. I am more excited to have Eric Lundie, Taylor and Jayden coming down to spend a week with us. We are going to have so much fun. When the month is over we will not be sad because we will turn back around in January and stay until the end of March 2021.. Our snowbird friends will be here then so let the partys begin. If anyone want to rent a condo at Watercest from Eric T Henderson at Sandcastle Vacations PCB Eric and Debby are your go to place. They are wonderful.. [⛱️]

Eric and Debbie were fantastic and got us this condo last minute with a Huge deal. Thank you for that. The condo is nice, roomy with an open floor plan. We enjoyed the balcony more that the beach it seems. Very big. Very nice.

We enjoy sitting out on the balcony watching the boats come back in through the pass. Very clean unit. Sandcastle Vacations did a great job with my wife who wanted something extra done. They were on it right away. Thanks Debbie.
