Watercrest #209 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. We "stream" our TV services. Netflix,YouTube TV and many others are available allowing you to watch endless movies, news channels and the local channels. FAR better than cable. 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 sofa that pulls out to a Full size bed 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.

This condo was very comfortable and spacious, plenty of room for storage and very well kept.

We enjoyed the stay at watercrest 209. Great unit with lots of open living area. Super view. Watercrest beach and pool facilities are never a disappointment.  Eric and Debbie always provide a great / clean unit and are on site to help with your needs.

Other than a few noisy neighbors and the hot tub being down the whole time we were there , I would say we had an overall great experience. Room was extremely nice, good hot water,  Very clean and tidy and excellent view with the balcony. Right on the beach.  Extremely good convenience ........

Awsome Location and condo!    May 08, 2021

"Awesome location and condo!
We loved our stay at this condo! The décor was perfect. It was clean and well-furnished with everything we needed.  We especially loved the layout of the condo and the size of rooms. The patio is good sized where we enjoyed sipping our coffee and listening to the waves. We liked the convenience of being on the second floor. Close to everything! The beach is just a few steps away. The pool was clean and refreshing. The parking was convenient and we really love this area of PCB. We will be back! 5/5"



Thank you!    May 08, 2021

Watercrest #209 was exactly as depicted in the pictures and description.
Very clean, very comfortable.  The view of the beach and gulf were
fabulous from the balcony.  We spent every morning and evening just
relaxing there.  We experienced no problems whatsever and will definitely
be back.  Thank you.

My wife and I couldnt wait to get to Florida and boy were we not let down. After a long drive with young ones we both needed a break and wow was it delivered. This place is like brand new inside and out. Balcony was very big and we got to just sit there and enjoy the beach views. Going to come back and thats a fact.



Perfect for families    Oct 17, 2020

We couldnt have asked for any nicer owners than Eric and Deb. They were so helpful and kept us up on everything at the Watercrest. 
We enjoyed the balcony more that the beach it seems. Super big. Place was very clean and we got to stay in bed and watch the sun come up every morning. Very nice.



Great time had by all.    Sep 19, 2020

We had so much fun. Weather could have been better though. Condo was clean and very roomy. Eric & Debby were very attentive and so nice. See you next year.

Watercrest is #1    Jul 18, 2020

review star

And #209 is the best yet. We have been coming here for 20+ years now and this is the finest unit we have stayed in so far. We originally were staying at another unit that we rent out every summer but it got sold. No dissapointments here. Really done up right. Sandcastle saved our vacation this year. Hats off to Eric & Debbie
