WELCOME to Tidelands at Mexico Beach! Couples? Families? Groups? We got you. This property is spacious for your group but perfect for a couple’s romantic getaway. Everyone agrees our location and view are *WOW*.
When my parents bought this condo as a personal getaway in 2012, this one was their top pick -- fantastic view facing the Ocean, not too high up (option for elevator or stairs), near the pool but not too close, one of the biggest balconies and fully covered, 3 bedrooms so family and friends can visit. Years later as the owners, we're so glad they chose well! Here's why...
Beach Access: There’s only a road between you and the beach boardwalk—it is super close, next after beachfront. Getting to the beach and back is so easy and convenient.
Balcony Experience: Step right outside to the covered Balcony from both the living room and master bedroom. It’s big, it’s private, and it directly faces the Gulf, making it everyone’s favorite spot. Morning coffee with a book and dining at sunset are favorite pastimes. Relax with those glittering waters and fresh ocean breezes.
Pool & Hot Tub: Our building has one of the largest Pools in town + a relaxing Hot Tub, so there’s something for everyone! The pool area is very close to the front door, only about 15 steps away.
What's it like to stay here? We curated this property for a Luxe experience of COMFORT and CONVENIENCE throughout: USB ports, Smart TVs in every room, *plenty* of toilet paper, favorite bath towels, coffee with cream and sugar, laundry supplies, clothes steamer.
What else? Work desk, FAST internet, fully-equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, blackout blinds, comfy beds. Plus Beach Gear for 6: Soft Turkish beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, wagon, cooler. No need to lug gear from home!
Love to grill up some surf & turf? There are 2 Gulf-view picnic areas with charcoal grills at the parking level + grilling utensils ready for you.
Guests tell us we thought of everything, and we certainly tried to! Why? Because we want your stay to be relaxed and to bring you joy.
