Now this is what Florida vacations are all about. This 3 bedroom 3 bath unit just recently went through a total upgrade. All new everything! King size bed in the Master, Queen size bed in the 2nd bedroom and 2 Twin over Full bunkies in the 3rd bedroom.  55" smart TV's in the 3 bedrooms and a 65" smart TV in the living room. This Sandcastle lets you sleep 8 comfortably. Fully stocked kitchen with all the cookware you could ask for. Free Beach Service included (2 chairs, 1 umbrella and a skinny tanned cabana boy). Sleep in Paradise.......Create the Memory!

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.

Good morning!!! We have left Watercrest 1704, we aren’t happy about it, but we are on our way back to South Carolina! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. It was absolutely beautiful. We made so many new memories and we can’t wait to come back! 
Thank you again,
Mellissa Braendle

Another wonderful vacation at Watercrest in PCB. Thanks to Eric & Debby at Sandcastle Vacations PCB. Their help and service is second to none.



Miss it already    Feb 01, 2022

Hello Eric,
Just arrived home and miss the view already.  Watercrest is a great place to stay, it’s not in the busy part of Panama City Beach, which is perfect for us, we were able to thoroughly enjoy the area.  This is close to many eating places grocery, short ride to shopping and is by the Marina that launches tours to many water activities and excursions.
The unit itself was wonderful, large balcony (would be nice to have lounger chairs) but the furniture there is nice.  This place is tastefully decorated, washer and dryer are a must and came in handy. TVs in all bedrooms and livingroom (smart TV’s), if you are smart enough to use them….really could use instructions on using smart TVs for dummies.   Well stocked kitchen, crockpot, loved the black cast iron fry pan, griddle for pancakes….all you need is in the unit plus a closet full of beach chairs, boards, cooler, noodles.  Plus you get beach service right in front of unit.
Eric is quick to respond to any issue that came up which is much appreciated.  Totally enjoyed our stay.
Thanks Eric and Debby

Wow that condo was beautiful to say the least. I'm not sure I can get the family to leave if we ever get to come back. Very classy place and the beds were super comfy. Nicely decorated and soft towels too. Debby helped us with some things and we have to thank her for her help. If nothing else we will come back just to stop by and say hi to her. See you soon guys!
