This place is lovely. The booking process was easy. The property was well kept. The rooms are beautiful. Watercrest is an older property so there are a little stains on the carpet, but it's not that bad. This was our first time staying in a condo and it was a great first experience. The view was wonderful. We are ready... More

One of the best condos we've stayed at on the Gulf. It's right on the Gulf, has some of the best amenities...I especially like the indoor racquetball court and the tennis court. Quiet part of the beach and close to all the marinas and the state park.

Patti was wonderful to deal with. Could be updated and had to clean a little when we arrived Other than that everything was very nice. View is unbeatable. Spent a lot of time on the balcony! The building is very quiet. We never heard our neighbors. Nice peaceful week. Would definitely stay again!

The Watercrest is an older property that is beautifully maintained. It is the cleanest condo property I've ever seen in the area. The grounds are way above average in terms of landscaping and flowers. The inside atrium sets the property off from others, and the pool and hot tub area is beautiful. They also have well-maintained shuffleboard and tennis courts,... More

Hi there.....Our family's been heading down to PCB for many many years & we've stayed at seems like hundred's of condo homes throughout the years. I always try to find one for our "family" vacation where the adults & my grandchildren are comfortable. I want my two grandsons and my nephew to always have their own space and bedroom/bathroom. I...

Our recent visit to The Watercrest unit 305 was wonderful. Our family had everything you would need. The view of the pool and the ocean, the well decorated condo and the friendliness of the owner, Marleen Hess. She was great to rent from and will again. We had 4 adults a d 2 granddaughters and everyone loved it. Thank you... More

Unit 410. Terrible beyond terrible. We will NEVER stay here again. Customer service is rude. Hidden fees, and nasty beaches. Alarms go off in the middle if the night. W went too stay for 3 nights, with our whole family, including a toddler. The very first day we arrive at 12pm. Checked in at the headquarters, we were told that... More

My wife and I have been to many condominiums along the Gulf Coast over the past 23 years. This condo ranks among the top for value and quality. The furnishings were excellent and you can tell that the owner wanted to make it more than just a cheap investment. The rooms were spacious, the wall fixtures were pleasing, and the... More

My friend and our 2 daughters rented a unit from Oaseas , unit 1608! We had no idea how horrible the condo would be. Upon walking in we were greeted by filthy carpet, stains and it was worn to the tacks that my daughter and her friend stub their toes on it. The furniture was old and looked like it... More

Stayed at Watercrest last year and it was very good. This year, not so much. Started off on the wrong foot I guess, if you use Oaseas resorts, you now have to check in at another location about 3 miles away. That would not have been a problem If I was told that upfront, but I was not. We get... More
