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 20 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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why The Owner chose Long Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Rich, inviting decor, with at home feeling. Top notch property. like no other!

  • 5 of 5

This is my families second year at this property. We would not have stayed any where else. As returning guests we feel as if we are returning home. Everything is so inviting and soothing from the decor, to the well stocked kitchen, the beautifully appointed living quarters , the outstanding bathrooms, or the spacious balcony. The decor is like no other. The furnishings are plush, yet so comfortable that feel at ease to curl up and watch a good movie! Very well laid out so you can, as a family, all be included in any conversation, or media event of your choice! The kitchen is chef ready! If you choose to create a multi course meal, or pop some popcorn for a movie night, you will have everything you need. And everything will be top of the line.The cabinetry, appliances, contertops to back splash are very complimentary to each other, and makes for a effortless prep to any meal or snack. The bedrooms are so richly decorated that you feel like royalty when you go to bed each night. The beds are so comfortable in both master and guest. The linens are so soothing, they just add to the vacation experience. Both well as living room. have nice tv's with cable and HBO. Both bedrooms have access to the spacious balcony so you can slip out for a little beach time at any hour. Each bedroom has a floor to ceiling window to enhance the ocean view. The master bedroom has an amazing walk in shower with a rainfall shower head. If you find nothing else in this property jaw dropping, this will take your breath away! The guest bedroom has a well appointed bathroom with a luxurious bathtub and an entrance accessible from the living room or privately from the guest bedroom. The balcony is so roomy it includes a dining table with 4 chairs and 2 full size chaise lounges with side table. It still allows for walking room for viewing of the beautiful beach. If you do not miss this property this second you get on the elevator you leave to go home, you need to reevaluate your priorities. It will give you memories with you family and friends in a setting that you would have to travel across the globe and spends thousands of dollars to get. My family feels at home and we feel a part of Bob & Lynns family simply staying here. They are genuine people from Indiana,(i can relate} who care about your stay. They will be phone call away. You wont be disappointed if you get the chance to stay here. Thank you Bob and Lynn for sharing with is your beautiful property

Pool was great and proximity to beach was hard to beat....a few steps from the elevator and you were in sand. We had no problems at all and loved the property. This will be a repeat rental for us.

Pretty close to perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in a lot of different places in the FL Panhandle over the past 10 years, and this condo just might have been our favorite! It checks all our boxes:

VIEW- beautiful views from the 14th floor spacious balcony and every room in the unit. Great sunset view from balcony.

COMFORT- Super comfortable beds and nice living room furniture. The inside has been newly renovated w/ top of the line finishes. Open floor plan, roomy bathrooms and nice master shower. We actually slept better than we ever have while away from home! We did, however, have to buy new pillows. We found the pillows there too dense for our liking (should've just brought our pillows from home & will next time).

WALK TO BEACH- fast and easy walk down to the beach and pools. Just 1 set of doors to walk thru and there's a button you press that will open them for you, and 1 keypad gate to get onto beach. Clean bathrooms right by the pool area that are very easy to access from the beach.

PROXIMITY TO SHOPS/RESTAURANTS- Walmart is right across the street along with lots of other shops/restaurants within walking distance. There is plenty to do in the area within a short drive. We loved Pier Park for shopping and Pineapple Willies (just a short walk down the beach) for great food/atmosphere in a casual setting.

FREE BEACH SVC- you can't beat having 2 chairs/1 umbrella waiting for you down at the beach every day!

We had a great week but it wasn't love at first sight. We arrived at the tail end of "bike week" so it was very loud and crowded on the road. Luckily, things quieted down after a few days (and I will be googling when "bike week" is from now on). Also there is currently road construction going on right in front of the resort but that should be done soon. The other thing to mention is while this condo is top of the line, it doesn't come with a lot of the basics. You will need to bring or buy: salt & pepper, paper towels, dish soap, kitchen sponge, hand soap, trash bags, toilet paper, laundry soap etc. I wish I knew this beforehand so I could've just brought it from home instead of having to buy it all at Walmart.

This was our first time staying in Panama City and we found it to be more of a younger crowd than the Destin Area. But the beach area out in front of this resort was MUCH quieter than other places down the beach. Overall, it was a fabulous week and we would definitely love to stay here again.
