Nautical Watch is a fantastic little low rise complex on the beach. No big crowds, no long waits for the elevator and easy access to the beach. They have a pool with restrooms and a bbq area in the courtyard.

The units are a great value and two of the buildings that included the one we stayed in were located with in a 2 minute walk to the beach. I would recommend this area as its close to some great restaurants (Captain Anderson's) and is more as congested as the middle of the city. The units are a bit older,... More

We stayed at Nautical Watch over Thanksgiving and we really enjoyed ourselves. I had imagined hoodies & hot chocolate on the beach and that was not the case at all! The kids were in their bathing suits & playing in the water!! It was too cold for me but the kids didn't care. It was a great location, away form... More

We stayed in unit c-15 and it was beautiful. We had planned this vacation before we knew it was bike week and Stephanie made sure we were comfortable, especially since we had a 1yr old with us. They even had a pack and play for the baby! We overlooked the pool from our patio and from the front door we... More

We had the pleasure of staying in Nautical Watch D11 for the whole month of March. We absolutely love this beautiful, quiet, friendly place. Thanks to Laura and Russ for allowing us to stay in their unit the last 3 years, hopefully this will continue for many more years. Everything you need is included in this super clean condo.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom beach front. We rented through VRBO (homeaway) and got a great rate! I'll start by saying I wasn't real pleased with Panama City as a whole, but this condo was in a very quiet location, so it helped. The view from the patio is breathtaking and it's not a high rise so we just... More

I recently stayed in the B08 condo. It was an oceanfront condo with a beautiful view. The condo was very nice. It had everything we needed on our trip. The decor was a bit "beachy" overkill. But it was a good price for an oceanfront view. I would definitely stay here again.

Our view was beautiful, our condo was overly stimulating with extreme amount of tacky decor and cheesy poster art - simple is always better Comfortable bed and couch - was very clean and smelled good- Perfect access to the beach and the area!

We stayed over the week of the 4th of July like we do every year. Nautical Watch as usual was well maintained and clean. The beach is not crowded here like your high rise resorts. The bad news is we have had a baby since last visit and we have pretty much accepted that we have outgrown the largest rooms... More

We have stayed at Nautical Watch for quite a few years. We really have enjoyed our stay here. This year we stayed in E2, I found it through VRBO. They owner, Jim Armstrong, was great! The room was updated and very clean. Will definitely go back again.
