About Ted and Allison
"My wife Allison and I have been married for over 20 years. We have a teenaged son and a kooky dog named Biscuit (see picture). With old-fashioned values, we believe that the customer comes first and we treat our guests the way we want to be treated. Allison and I realize that folks have many places to choose from in Panama City Beach. We've added loads of extra-special touches so guests can be confident they made the right choice booking with us - including free beach service, professionally designed decor, clean and well-maintained furnishings, extra comfy beds & couches, and a fully-stocked kitchen. Our guests' comfort is our top priority and we make ourselves easily available to address any needs or concerns."
Ted and Allison purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Ted and Allison chose Panama City Beach
"We chose Tidewater Beach Resort because it offers our guests the best of Panama City Beach: It is located directly on the beach - not across the street like some resorts. It is super close to Pier Park (just a short walk down the beach). It's just a few hundred feet away from Highway 79 (no Front Beach Road traffic jams!). And it is situated away from the older cluster of mega-resorts a few miles away. So it feels more private and less crowded on the beach and on the street. "
What makes this Condo unique
"This floorplan with the Gulf-View Master Bedroom is truly unique. It includes floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that lead to an extra-long balcony and breathtaking ocean views. We can't emphasize enough what a big difference this makes! Only a small percentage of 1-bedroom units in Panama City Beach have this special floor plan and they are hard to come by. Most other Master Bedrooms are situated on the road side of the building- not the beach side. They have just a small window that faces the main walkway, so guests have to keep their blinds closed all the time for privacy. Those bedrooms have less natural light, are much less private, and are more susceptible to street noise. Another unique feature is the Private Bunk Room. Many other units situate the bunks in the hallway, which gives kids and guests absolutely zero privacy. Whereas the Bunks in our unit are tucked away in their own private space. It has its own dresser/closet, plus we even threw in a DVD player so kids and parents can retire to their very own spaces at the end of each fun-filled day. We knew this unit was special the moment we saw it and were sure our guests would love it as much as we do!"

We are always pleased when we stay at Tidewater. We love the location, the covered parking, and being right on the beach is always convenient. Lots of restaurants near by. We love staying in PCB area.
This property was clean with beautiful views of the ocean and beach. It was a 20 minute walk to The Pier shopping and restaurants. The unit was quiet, which is what we wanted. My only complaint would be the elevators. There were long waits due to people having huge wagons for all their beach things and coolers and on the weekends when people checking in or out.
Love Tidewater! Always enjoy our stay every year.
The condo was clean and loved the view from the balcony. Ted the owner checked in to ensure we had everything needed for check in and was enjoying our trip. We would return to this condo in the future. Also, we did not experience any long delays waiting for the elevators.
Prepare for things you can’t control
To begin the Tidewater is a total mad house! Be ready to wait and wait for elevators wherever you go. Parking garage elevator and condo elevators are terrible!!! So busy at check in and check out times that carts are not available, so bring your own. We had to call security every other night on our “neighbors” as they had parties until 3am that would wake my grandmother from her grave. These idiots finally got kicked out after the 4th night because they got into a fight with each other and ran down the hall banging on everyone’s doors and smearing blood all over the place. The result was an emergency alarm going off at 6:45 am in which we had to evacuate from the 22nd floor using the stairs! That being said, the condo itself was in resoanable condition. Most of the furniture is really worm including the king master bed (about a 3” dip on both sides) it really sucked sleeping in it and I even brought my own pillow. Most everything else was pretty dated but worked. Except for a few of the lamps, tv in the master and blow dryer although my wife brings her own. The appliances are very basic, but work. I don’t recommend using the pans for cooking, but most places don’t have decent cookware anyhow. Overall, the condo was tolerable, but I would never stay at Tidewater again.
What a bummer you encountered such bad neighbors! So sorry to hear about that. It is surprising that security didn’t kick those knuckleheads out right away. They usually have a zero-tolerance policy about disruptive guests. We've notified Tidewater about the issues you identified. As for the unit itself, thanks for your feedback. We were there last week, flipped the King mattress and put on a new topper & quilt (it’s now super comfy!). All lamps and TVs worked fine, so we’re not sure what happened there. Hope you reconsider staying with us in the future.
The condo was everything we wanted, clean, convenient, beautiful views, and all the supplies we needed. My grandchildren enjoyed have their own space with the bunks. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who wants to visit PCB.
Glad to hear your family had a great time. We do try to make sure your experience is a good one.
Pier Park is just 1/3 of a mile East. The attraction is loaded with restaurants, shops, bars, IMAX theater, a Skywheel, laser tag, live music, and more.
