Intimate Gulf Front Condo for Four with Community Pool - Snowbirds Welcome

Just steps from the beach, this cozy condo is a great spot for your dreamy family or couple's beach getaway. This getaway boasts access to a sparkling shared pool and patio area with grills so some of your guests can enjoy swimming while others are grilling up some juicy steaks. Light-colored walls, bright accents, tile floors, and contemporary furnishings defy the typical beach house connotation. Save a little cash and enjoy healthier meals with the full kitchen. Ocean hues in the blue walls and beige tile countertops will make meal prep a joy. And, seeing as this kitchen comes with all the major appliances, as well as a microwave, dishwasher, and coffeemaker, all you will need to bring is the food! Two high-back barstools are set up at the kitchen bar and a cozy bistro table for two sits between the kitchen and living room so everyone will have a place to eat home-cooked meals. No doubt after a long day on the beach, you'll long for a place to relax and lounge. The ivory leather sofa in the living room is just the ticket! Toss a movie into the DVD player attached to the flatscreen TV, or upload pictures from your perfect beach day using the provided Internet. Just off the living room, through the sliding glass door, is a balcony with stunning Gulf views! Bring your cards outside to sit and play while taking in the vistas and fresh ocean breeze, or sip your morning coffee while watching the sunrise over the horizon.

What's nearby:
As part of the lovely Nautical Watch Resort, you'll enjoy a quiet, serene getaway without the high-rise overcrowding. The private beach access means you can walk down to the beach to play any time of day. Plus, you're just a few miles to all the fun attractions and tasty restaurants in Panama City Beach proper. Delicious eateries, a hopping nightlife, and thrilling attractions can be found just a few miles away from this condo. Club La Vela is just over two miles away and is said to be one of the best nightclubs in all of Florida.

I stayed here last year and did a repeat trip this year and it was beautiful both times. Everything was in working order with maybe the exception of the washer and dryer needs an updated unit. But the bathroom has been remodeled since last year and it is really nice. Everything was very clean and in order when I arrived. There is nothing like opening up the front door and being able to see all the way through the patio door to the ocean as soon as you walk in. If I plan another trip to Panama City I will definitely try to get this unit again.
Beverly N. Oct 2022
Loved the stay. Will be staying here again. Would have given a 5 if they had another chair to sit on in the living room. Loved the location and how easy it was to get to the beach.
Rex D. Sep 2022
The good-
The condo was clean and the location is great.

The bad-
On arrival, combination lock on door not functioning properly. Would take 4 or 5 tries for the door to unlock. Combination was 10 digits. Unreasonably long.
Internet not working.
A vertical blind missing on bedroom window and curtains are sheer. Anyone walking by could see into the bedroom.
Called about these issues Saturday Morning. Lock and internet resolved that day. Vertical blind replaced Monday.

Matress uncomfortable and squeaks terribly. One of the bar stools is broken. Wicker chair in living room is damaged. Multiple scratches and dings on walls throughout the entire condo. Patio furniture old and rusty. No remote for TV in living room. Killed a bug in the bathroom.
Manager response:

Daniel T. Aug 2022
The room was clean and had a great view of the beach. The water is clear and warm. It was very relaxing.
Steven H. Aug 2022
Ground floor condo, just steps to ocean. Like the East end of PCB for less traffic and congestion. Condo needs some cosmetic touch up, but was clean. Enjoyed our stay.
Sherry C. Aug 2022
Could not have asked for a better vacation. The condo is nice (kitchen appears recently updated- refrigerator had an ice machine - nice surprise) could use a little more TLC but any thing concerning was outweighed by the location. and the location is perfect. Right on the beach. The first day we arrived, we loaded up with beach bag, chairs, floats and we had beach cover up and beach shoes and off to the beach we went. What we realized (quickly) is all we needed were the floats. No shoes, no cover up no chairs. Just you, your float and the beautiful ocean. So relaxing! Water was perfect, beach was perfect. The condo is well stocked and we enjoyed breakfast daily on the deck - gazing at the ocean. Also just a tiny tip - pack light - a couple of swim suits and shorts/tshirts. They have a washer and dryer in the condo so we would throw a load in nightly and really needs very little of what we packed. One other tip the front door is a little tricky to lock - once closed pull door towards you and the lock will engage. TV was bit tricky too but with the view who needs TV. Overall very pleased!
Howard W. Jul 2022
We loved being so close to the beach and the view from our balcony .
Heather S. Jul 2022
The condo is small, which was fine for us. Very little decorations, and the outside table and chairs were old and barely sittable. Would be nice if this came with beach chairs. The unit is two doors down from the beach entrance, which was great. The bed isn’t that comfortable and squeaks. Definitely needs a new mattress. Would probably stay here again if the mattress is better.
Wendy R. May 2022
I loved it!! The condo was clean and the beach view was AWESOME!! I will book this unit again.
Gregory H. May 2022
Location is great. Very quite and laid back condo complex. Was a little concerned about being ground level but there’s a nice “natural” buffer zone between balcony and beach.
Only knock on the place is cosmetic. Bathroom has some sheet rock damage and side of kitchen counter has peeling paint. If this were to be addressed I’d give a 5 star rating.
I appreciated the contact by vaca confirming everything was in order upon arrival and departure.
Barbara D. Apr 2022
Awesome view of ocean, right on the beach ⛱️
Darrell P. Apr 2022
The view of the beach and the gulf from of 2st floor balcony was spectacular!
Audrey P. Feb 2022
Loved the view!
Kirsten N. Jan 2022
TV in living room didn’t work, internet didn’t work, could hear every step in unit above us. Nice deck ocean side, easy access to the beach, kitchen had all we needed to cook.

They could use extra blankets and bed bangs loud with the slightest of movement.
Manager response:
Kristen, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are happy you enjoyed the location of this home. We have passed your comments along to our local manager, who will work with the homeowner to make any updates. We hope to host you again!
Michele K. Jan 2022
This was the most restful vacation we have had in a long time As a nurse, I really wanted to steer clear of people as much as possible. There is a ton of things to do in the area if you want or you can just relax and reconnect. We Spent most of our time relaxing on the patio listening to the surf. Already booked the same place for next year.
Tony & Geranika C. Nov 2021
My stat was very peaceful, I had a lil problem with my door not locking for a moment but it did after the second try. Apartment can use a paint job in the restroom, but overall it was nice site of the beach. Also can use new sheets. Thanks for the start and the staff was super friendly ❤️
Danny M. Oct 2021
This was a very clean unit and it had an amazing view of the beach and waves. When you walk in the front door you can see the waves through the patio doors. Unit was perfect for two people. I will be booking again for this unit. Its more of a quiet little place to get away from the rush of the high rise hotels. The faucet in the kitchen sink was a little loose. Be careful of the high step frame of the patio door from the living room going out to the patio or you can fall. Really needs a overhead light in the bedroom but the lamps worked fine. We really enjoyed our stay here in Panama City Beach. Thankyou! Vacasa!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Danny, we are so pleased to hear of your experience! We apologize for any maintenance issues you encountered during your time with us but appreciate you bringing these items to our attention. We have passed your comments along to our local staff to review and inspect as needed. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Dianna D. Oct 2021
Wonderful location close to the beach very nice condo
Sonja L. Sep 2021
Love the beach view and first floor
Carrie B. Jun 2021
The room was nice and clean. Well furnished and such a short walk to the beach we didn't even use flip flops. Stayed there with my Wife, Daughter, and Mother. We had a great stay and would recommend to anyone.
Barbara O. Apr 2021
Patio door boarded up with plywood. Can not use it! Rusty patio furniture. Hasnt even been swept or anything done to it forever.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Barbara. We appreciate your feedback, and sincerely apologize for the disappointment and miscommunication regarding the repairs to the home's patio door. We hope that the refund that you were given has helped with some resolution for the issues you experienced. We hope to have the opportunity to better serve you in the future!
Nicole S. Apr 2021
the location was my favorite part, then having 24/7 access to the pool, and the private beach access was awesome as well.. the one thing I will complain about is that the condo was definitely renovated cheaply, also we had some miss communication about the screen door being broke so instead of a beautiful view we had too look at plywood on the window, and that was very disappointing.. but I was refunded for a night stay for the misscommunication afterwards so I do appreciate that..
Manager response:
Hello, Nicole! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the location and took advantage of the fabulous amenities this home offers. We sincerely apologize for the miscommunication during your visit and for any resulting inconvenience. The balcony door has been replaced and we're happy to hear that the partial refund given has helped you to reflect more positively on your stay. We look forward to hosting you again, in the future, for a more enjoyable vacation experience!
Bob E. Oct 2018
Everything is as advertised. Great location. Comfortable accommodations. Good a/c. Good restaurants nearby (DO NOT, for any reason, miss Gypsea Crepes. I tried to eat my way around the menu but ran out of time.)

Private. And quiet, too, except ...

Just one thing keeps me from giving NWA2 a 5-star write up, and it's nothing that the management company or owners can do anything about; I'm just passing it along as a heads-up:

The upstairs neighbors, who are condo residents (not vacationers) clomp around All. The. Time. It's almost like they're trying to get their 10,000 daily FitBit steps in by clomping back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And the units are quite compact, so they are always directly overhead.

Like I say, nothing anybody can do about it, but it's something you should know if noisy upstairs neighbors annoy you.

Otherwise, Nautical Watch A2 is a superior choice for a wonderful Gulf Coast vacation.
Ashley L. Sep 2018
The location was perfect! Size for a family of 3 for us was perfect! We had everything we needed!!❤️
Della L. Sep 2018
We loved everything about it! So clean, comfortable, nice view of the beach and easy access. We will be going back again! Thank ya'll!
Brianna J. Aug 2018
We have stayed for the last two years during August! We love to come this late because the beach is not crowded. Nautical Watch is a GREAT place for families to stay, as most of the visitors are families. We have loved the coziness and cleanness of the condo
Daniela A. Aug 2018
This place is nice and cozy! Easy access to everything. We had a great time and really enjoyed the fact that the beach was only a few feet away. This little condo helped us save tons of money because we chose to cook at home.
Sarah G. Aug 2018
Great location. Easy access to the beach!
Karen H. Jul 2018
This unit is in a perfect location !
Daniel A. Jul 2018
Great view ocean/beach and very close to local amenities. Condo has all your basic needs, felt right at home
Candy T. Jun 2018
We had a nice time, perfect view! Thanks Vacasa!
Selina H. Jun 2018
Absolutely loved the location of the condo. Everyone was very nice and friendly. The beach was not crowded like everywhere else we have stayed. Would love to stay there again. I will be booking my next vacation with ya again . And special thank you to Robin Mixon with a welcome bag.
Delana B. May 2018
Only suggestion would be a more comfortable bed. Had lots of trouble sleeping. Other than that, we loved our trip! Hope to come back next year!
Julie C. May 2018
The condo was very clean. Beautiful view. We have stayed here several times and will be back.
Tonya C. Oct 2017
We were very pleased with this unit. This was our first time in this unit and second stay at the Nautical. We will be back
Rachel M. Oct 2017
The condo was in a prime location. The view was breathtaking. There are a few minor things that need attention. The pull out sleeper sofa is very uncomfortable, the kids ended up making a pallet on the bedroom floor. The sliding glass door sticks really bad, and the pans there to use are pretty worn and the food sticks onto them. The carpet looked stained and dirty but overall we had a nice stay. I would stay again but would make other arrangements and not use the sleeper sofa.
Manager response:
The carpet has been cleaned and we have disposed of any worn out pots or pans. Thank you!
STEPHEN P. Oct 2017
My wife and I have stayed here twice and we love the location! We love the beach! We love the unit! We love the price! But we hate the bed and the sleeper couch. Mattress is way too old and uncomfortable and the sleeper couch isn't even usable as an alternative to the bed. We would absolutely return and recommend to our friends and family but only if the sleeping situation is improved.
Marie M. Sep 2017
It was a very nice view und a Great Appartement
Jessica K. Sep 2017
Needs new carpet and new couch... Otherwise great
Tennie B. Aug 2017
Yes this unit is dated but who cares? I didn't come to the beach for granite counter tops. It's all about sun and sea and this place certainly delivers. Everything worked and I had everything I needed, especially peace.
Brianna J. Aug 2017
We really enjoyed our stay here. Family friendly, quiet, and great neighbors!
Kim S. Aug 2017
I loved this condo. It was perfect for our needs. We like the smaller complexes that allow to get the most for your money. Perfect!
Angie P. Jul 2017
It's a family place that is clean, right on the beach, & not crowded. Our only complaints are the sofa bed is terribly uncomfortable and there's no cable in the bedroom, only local channels. Other than that, we've been happy staying here. We've stayed here twice and will back.
Tina K. Jun 2017
VACASA staff was great! The place just needs a few things to help it look clean. It's just an old unit.
Angela D. Jun 2017
It was super simple booking this location with the transaction going thru flawlessly. Finding & arriving at the location was very easy with the instructions included in the email. The rental was absolutely beautiful with a peaceful atmosphere. Accommodations included everything necessary for a cozy get away on the beach. The view was so amazing there are no words to describe it. I've already recommended this location to all I know and will definitely be back! The place was almost too good to be true, I selfishly don't want the word to get out because a place this perfect should stay booked up!
Sandra M. Jun 2017
We stayed here 5 nights and hated to leave. Beautiful condo, perfect location. We were pleasantly surprised to find beach chairs and toys stashed in the closet. We enjoyed sitting on the deck every morning eating breakfast and watching the ocean waves. I hope we can come back, it felt like home.
Desiree D. Jun 2017
I love to travel and see new things. When I go places, I want to be out and about, seeing what there is to see. For this reason, luxury accommodations will never be important to me. A large pool will never beat the beach. A Jacuzzi will hold no lure over baking in the sun. So if you're more of a doer than a sitter, this place is you. Don't get me wrong, it's clean and well maintained. You'll have all the necessities and then some (there were chairs and an umbrella in the closet- score), but this isn't fancy at all. The pool is small, but who cares? Even more importantly, the pool is in front of the units so you have an unobscured view of the beach. The area is quite and less crowded. My one real pet peeve is you cant turn left into or out of the condo, so you better remember the name Quartz St when you're coming back from the east end. We loved this place and will definitely be back! You simply cant beat the price and the view!
Jessica E. May 2017
Honestly it's perfect. I love the location because it's private but it's also close to all the attractions. Definitely my favorite place to stay when I visit.
David S. Apr 2017
I'll start by saying I'd stay here again. The location was wonderful - beautiful view, steps to the beach, pool just across the parking lot, easy access to fun things to do. That being said, there are things that could have been better. The pullout couch was difficult to pull out/put away, the hair dryer didn't work, the shower head was awful, the screen door didn't close easily, there was no blanket for the pull out couch - only sheets and there was trash inside the pull out. We had to use the hand towels as pot holders as there weren't any of those for the oven. Since we didn't spend a whole lot of time inside, it didn't bother us much and as I said we'd stay there again, but it definitely should have had a blanket for the pull out and a better shower head with less pressure so it didn't hurt would have been nice.
Manager response:
Maintenance has replaced the shower head, repaired curtains, put WD-40 on the sleeper sofa mechanism and screen door tracks. Pot holders and extra blankets have been placed in the home, and a new hair dryer is under the sink in the bathroom. We apologize if these items caused our guests any inconvenience.
Jeff L. Apr 2017
I have stayed at Nautical Watch many times before so if you like a quiet simple location this works. The condo is somewhat dated but worked for us.
Joseph F. Apr 2017
Great location, easy to deal with booking. Furnishings a bit dated. Don't count on good wifi. Hopefully the hair dryer will be replaced/repaired for the next guests.
Kevin D. Apr 2017
After all the horror stories about going during spring break we found none of them to be true. Calm, quiet and family oriented area. Patio on beach was pure heaven.
Jennifer W. Mar 2017
This condo was absolutely perfect. Right on the beach with a nice pool to use also. It had everything we needed. One of the best places I've stayed at
Melissa O. Mar 2017
Clean, nice unit, love the sunset from the balcony! Perfect for 1 or 2 people!
Donna H. Mar 2017
A cozy space for one or two people to enjoy the sound and site of the water. Loved the large patio space and being just a few steps from the beach.
Marvin R. Mar 2017
This property was clean, smelled fresh, and was in a great location. A bit further from the main attractions of PCB. Nautical Watch is perfect if you're looking for a relaxing location.. Ideal for couples.. Watch the sunset from the balcony every night. Also in walking distance to at least 4 restaurants, and a dollar general that sells basic grocery's and most importantly beer and wine. This vacation was better than expected because nautical watch is so charming!
Rebecca B. Jan 2017
This is an awesome condo with helpful support staff on ovation. Robin is awesome and answers any questions. Perfect location convenient to restaurants, fishing , golfing , and shopping.
Corey B. Nov 2016
The Condo was not very clean. Dirty dishes in the cabinets. Wifi never worked. View is amazing though.
Manager response:
We apologize for the poor cleanliness and will ask housekeeping to be more mindful when checking dishes.
Dean O. Oct 2016
We absolutely loved our stay in mid October. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The view off the back patio was amazing to say the least. Management easy to get a hold of and was very friendly. We did not have a single issue at all. MAJOR bang for the buck. Only true issue was that we did not book this room sooner....We will book this room again and not let the secret out.
Paula G. Oct 2016
Beach front ... Great spot. Weather was wonderful. Had a great time
Vann H. Sep 2016
Really relaxing type place does not have the hustle bustle of the large condo buildings. Pool and courtyard are very nice. Unit was just what we were hoping for. Both the complex and that part of beach are relaxing and laid back.
Lisa N. Aug 2016
We've stayed here before and really like the place, but the mattress destroyed both of our backs. Like sleeping on a plank made of springs. A better mattress would improve this place tenfold. Otherwise, the view is perfect, the rest of the condo totally fine. Would rent again. Hoping next year we'll be pleasantly surprised with a new bed.
Carol U. Aug 2016
Very pleased. Nice place for families
Jennifer R. Jul 2016
The property is in a good spot. Not right in the mix of the mess about a mile or 2 up the road, but still in the general area of some nice stuff. The unit is right on the beach and has a good view. Noise was a bit of a problem as the stairs are right outside the bedroom window next to your head. The place has been refreshed on the inside, but bring your own pillows! Other than that is was a great stay and just what we needed for the 2 nights we were in town.
Kathy W. Jul 2016
Nice lil place, has its pros and cons
Rick I. Jun 2016
nice place to stay ocean and beach was great there are plenty of great places to eat
Christy M. Jun 2016
Perfect location! Away from hustle and bustle! Right on the beach!!!
Brandon H. May 2016
I would recommend staying on the beach front units here. We enjoyed the bottom floor as we still had a great view of the beach and only had a couple of stairs. We were very close to the beach and that is what I look for most. The unit was kept well even though the buildings were a bit older.
Loria A. May 2016
Great Location!
Kristi R. May 2016
Location right on the beach is great but the condo is tired and needs refreshed. I would recommend bringing your own blankets, pillows and beach towels for sure.
Jeremy T. May 2016
I enjoyed my stay here. The condo was directly on the beach. The view was magnificent. The condo was very comfortable and clean. I will definitely keep this place bookmarked for future stays. A++++
Christopher S. Apr 2016
Good spot with great view.
Marlene E. Apr 2016
cVacasa staff was very helpful on the phone. appreciated the emailed instructions and notifications. loved the key pad so no need to carry keys out to the beach. view is amazing. i
Becky B. Mar 2016
Very relaxing vacation. Property was perfect for our needs.
Simone S. Mar 2016
My family and I loved the location of the condo. We had a wonderful time.
Angela A. Feb 2016
The location to the beach and the bottom floor views are the best! However, the floors were dirty, there was one thin, old and torn blanket for the uncomfortable pull out sofa, the "rug" was one of those really thin pieces of felt like you buy at Lowes for $10 and it was so dirty, we had to fold it up and put it in the hall, the lounge chair on the deck was cracked and unusable, and the microwave did not work properly. This could be a great place to stay with just a few improvements. The queen bed slept very comfortable and they left plenty of Tide pods and Cascade, which was appreciated. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of cooking items. There is only ONE piece of furniture in the family area but the sofa was nice and comfortable. I could have overlooked all the minor inconveniences, but not the dirty was so bad our feet were black an hour after a bath.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see that cleanliness was lacking and will be sure to follow-up with housekeeping.
Jim S. Feb 2016
We stayed at this property in February 2016. The location is great, with restaurants , grocery stores, and fish markets close at hand. There were plenty of options for recreation in the area. Being on the beach was worth the trip. Having the afternoon sun and sunsets made enjoying the patio a wonderful experience. Even though the temperature some days was cool the patio was very warm due to the wind being blocked and the sun shining in. This unit has not been updated but was good value and comfortable.
Christi L. Feb 2016
This was just fine for my quick getaway. Nothing fancy, but it was clean, on the beach, and inexpensive.
Terri B. Oct 2015
Pretty condo with great beach view and easy access! This is in a quieter part of the city with extremely easy access to everything. We will be back!
Keyon R. Oct 2015
needs to be updated hopefully management will spend the 1k needed and this unit will shine.
Priya M. Aug 2015
Needs a few fixes but not a bad place for the price.
Lisa N. Aug 2015
We normally rent larger places--two-bedroom joints--so this one was cozier than we're used to, but it was a fantastic stay. We lived in Florida for years, and PCB is not our first choice. We were actually a little nervous that it would be too crazy and not relaxing enough, but it was stellar. We would have stayed longer if we could. The view--that wall of ground-floor water--is absolutely worth every penny. And dealing with the Vacasa people was a rare, easy customer-service experience. We would 100% come back here.
Angie P. Jul 2015
We loved it & will be back again! It was clean & not crowded!
Stacy D. Jul 2015
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Nautical Watch. The location was perfect, condo was clean, and had everything we needed. Given the reasonable price we paid, we most definitely will be back and will recommend to friends! Please don't get greedy on rental price!
Alison F. Jul 2015
We enjoyed our stay here. It was nice to be able to have a place on the beach at a reasonable cost. We also liked the fact that the unit came with a washer and dryer. We would definitely stay here again.
Kellie P. Jul 2015
We will be back. You can not beat the location of this Condo. Park, walk right in, and amazing beach view. You feel like you are right by the water!
Cheryl F. Jun 2015
Loved the location. Right on the beach just perfect for us to celebrate our 30th anniversary
Nicolette B. Jun 2015
The location of this rental was amazing. Bottom floor, right on the beach. The condo was clean and everything was in working order. Community pool was a very close walk. The room had beach chairs and towels which was very nice. The bed was very hard and pillows were flat but other than that is was a perfect place and a wonderful stay!
