Without question, the location of Panama City Beach is one of the major reasons it is such a popular vacation destination. Having the most beautiful beaches and being easy to get to is an unbeatable combination. Our 14th floor penthouse condo has a large balcony and is located at Long Beach Resort (Tower 2), 10513 Front Beach Road, which is in the heart of Panama City Beach, very conveniently located with easy access by car, and it is close to everything!

Other Activities: shopping, dining, entertainment, day/night cruises, mini golf, go-carts, parasailing, air boat, seaplane adventures, horseback riding, and much more.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Hi, we are Lynn and Bob, and we are both retired and enjoying life together. Our two sons were married and gone over 15 years ago. They have granted us five wonderful grandchildren. Lynn was and still is an exceptional homemaker and owned a successful vending company for a number of years after our nest was empty. Bob retired from Cummins Inc. after almost 32 years where he held a number of manufacturing engineering and information technology leadership positions at Cummins' largest engine manufacturing facility and at Cummins World Headquarters in Columbus, Indiana. We continue to have a home in Columbus Indiana and Panama City Beach. When possible we enjoy time with our family and traveling together. We are both still very 'hands on' in caring for and running our homes inside and out. As a result we stay very active, and try to maintain a healthy life style. Neither of us have ever smoked and neither of our current homes have ever had pets in them. We have enjoyed working as a team doing many home improvement projects over the years and still do today. We owned rental property in Columbus for over 30 years and a number of second homes in Panama City Beach over the past 19 years. We love our home towns of Columbus, Indiana and Panama City Beach, Florida. We have made wonderful family memories in both places, and we never get tired of watching both communities grow and develop. They are both wonderful places.

Why the Owner Chose Long Beach Resort:
We established a family vacation tradition years ago, and we soon realized that it was difficult to insure the quality of our accommodations. Rental agencies rarely reserve a specific unit, and on a few occasions we were a little surprised at what we found when we opened the door. We then discovered that renting directly from an owner was a great solution. We were able to see pictures of the specific condo, and we consistently rented much better quality accommodations for less money. We eventually decided to apply our experience in real estate investing to a vacation condo and take the quality a level higher. We take pride in providing a beachfront vacation condo that is truly exceptional. Vacation memories with family and friends are among the real treasures of life and the right setting can make those memories more special. We had previously owned a 2 bedroom condo at Long Beach Resort and sold it near the peak of the condo boom and latterly cried all the way to the bank with seller’s remorse. We replaced it with another condo with taller ceilings but it was a typical condo floor plan. We always missed the incredible 2 Bedroom Long Beach Resort floor plan with wall to wall oceanfront views in every room. When a 2 bedroom Long Beach Resort penthouses came on the market, we saw a winning trifecta of opportunities: 1) Best 2 bedroom floor plan on the beach, 2) 10’ plus ceilings and 3) Being conveniently located in the heart of Panama City Beach in Long Beach Resort. As the saying goes, “It just doesn't get any better than that!” We challenged some of the area’s top interior decorators to help us create a relaxing yet elegant decor that incorporates the latest in comfort and luxury. Check out all our photos. We hope you will agree. We selectively rent it to cover the growing cost of ownership. If you are looking for an extraordinary vacation experience right on the beach at an affordable price, give us a call. We would be pleased to reserve it for you.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The thing we enjoy the most about our condo is sharing it with our family, especially our grandchildren. However, we also treasure 'our beach time'. Weather it is on the balcony or under an umbrella (taking advantage of our seasonally prepaid and reserved beach service) on the beach with something cool to drink, we never stop enjoying our place right on the beach. We also never get tired of exploring all the places of interest in Panama City Beach: restaurants, shopping, entertainment and more. Panama City Beach keeps us busy and enjoying life together and with our family.
