About Kelly Zarda

Picture of me (Kelly), my husband (Tim), and his daughter Leigh~relaxing next door at one of our favorite hang-outs, Pineapple Willies.

Kelly Zarda purchased this condo in 2007

Why Kelly Zarda chose Long Beach

I have been coming to Panama City Beach, Florida since I was a little girl. We always vacationed there because of the people, the beautiful beach, and it wasn't too far for us to drive for vacation. It became a family tradition, which turned into a family tradition for our children. Panama City Beach really began to grow in the 90's,and many developers came in, bought up most of the ma and pa spring break motels, and began building condos along the beach. My husband and I~all grown up and in the real estate business now, were so excited at the possibility of owning a condo in our favorite place, Panama City Beach! We looked at many pre-construction development opportunities, and hands down, Shores of Panama was by far the most beautiful of them all.

We feel so blessed and lucky, and although the economy has certainly challenged the upcoming of Shores~nothing was going to stop this beauty! We just love the location, and those beautiful emerald waters!

What makes this condo unique

We love the pool! What more can we say? There is not another pool like this in Panama City Beach! We also love Pineapple Willies being next door~their grouper bites are awesome, and their 90 Octane frozen drinks taste just like a orange push-up! Heaven on a hot summer day!

The other wonderful things are being right across the street from Wal-mart! Like it or not, we all need Walmart! Pompanos is a great seafood restaurant across the street, circle k, beside Shores, and Waffle House for those mornings! You know those mornings! scattered, smothered and covered!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you and yes we had a great time. Condo was wonderful. Elevators were too crowded and a long wait at times - but it's the season, and the week we had to go based on my daughters schedule. But we picked the perfect week. No rain and weather was great! Thx for everything.

The condo is amazing and sits high on the 17th floor at the Shores of Panama; with a relaxing view of the beach. The beach and pool are inches way. The condos are decorated and remodel to Grade A conditions. It's like I took my home with me Panama. Every room has its own bathroom,(spacious). The kitchen is equipped with everything!!! This was the cleanest place I have ever stayed.We walked into the condo and could eat off the floor. Kelly, the owner, was the best to work with and checked on me throughout my stay. She will always have a customer in for the best customer service. I really enjoyed my stay and plan on staying again in April of 2018.

PS- the Wal-Mart is directly across the street with other food places.

Wonderful condo and owners

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Shores of Panama. Our stay was absolutely wonderful. We have stayed on the gulf every year for the past 20 years. This was by far the cleanest most comfortable condo we have ever leased. It is beautifully decorated with all the bells and whistles. All the way down to beach toys for the kids.

The owner, Mrs. K, was awesome in her attention to detail in our pre-stay e-mail. All responses were right away and very helpful. The best way to describe how great our experience was is to share this story with readers of this review. My friend, traveling with us, left his watch and wedding band in the night stand. We were contacted by the owner of this condo the next day and both items were returned to the owner via UPS. We appreciated the honesty so much. We would recommend this condo and all properties managed by this owner.


Very satisfied customer from Alabama.

This condo is fantastic, anything you could possibly need is there waiting for you. If there are any issues Kelly is quick to respond and will take care of your every need. This condo is very updated and well taken care of. I read a lot of reviews about this hotel before leaving some not so good but this unit was well worth it. I will book as soon as I return for next year. The pool was amazing and the beach was even better. We did not want to come back home, Kelly thank you so much and I would recommend this unit if you are planning on a stay in Panama City!

Family Vacation July 2014

  • 4 of 5

I want to start with the room was great, so I am reviewing it and not the overall hotel. As many reviews online of Shores of Panama state, the elevators are a little slow, especially during busy season. The room itself was very good. I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. On the plus side. The unit was very well decorated , nice flooring, granite counters, all of the amenities of home. I travel a lot and cant stand when you cant get a room cool enough to sleep comfortably. Absolutely no problem here the ac was tip top. A bonus that my wife appreciated was a box fan in the unit to add white noise in the room.....fantastic touch. We ate several meals in the unit, and never had a problem with needing any cooking utensils that we didnt have....including corkscrews, can openers and bottle openers...very important. Another plus, the full size appliances...made everything easier. I am knocking off the a star for 3 small reasons. The two main bedrooms need better curtains, you can actually see into the rooms from outside a little and they let in a good bit of light in the morning. The other issue was the 3rd bedroom, it is pretty small, the double bed/bunk combo takes up nearly the entire room, especially with the ladder did have its own that was awesome. Also, the units wifi doesnt seem to pick up (at least on our myriad of electronic devices) in the front room or balcony, you have to be in the back bedrooms to get decent signal....but it did work. The property itself was very nice, the pool area is awesome. The location is great, beach property very nice, and close to several restaurants. The elevators were a pain, but manageable, and never dealt with the front desk of the benefits of renting VRBO. Would definitely rent this unit again, which is as good of a rating as I can give.

Owner's Response: Aaron -thank you for the awesome -detailed review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We have put so much care into our beach home. We strive to make you feel likes it's your home too. Thanks for the advice on the curtains. We are coming back down in September and I'll definitely look into adding darker curtains. Hope you come back soon!

Perfect Ladies trip!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was perfect for our 3rd Annual Ladies Get Away! Very well furnished, clean and cozy! Condo was just as described and Kelly kept in touch with lots of tips and info. We literally never got in our cars from Thursday to Sunday. Check out Dee's Hangout across the street for GREAT food! (it is in the strip mall directly across from Waffle House) We ate there two nights!

Thanks Kelly for a much needed getaway for some busy Moms!
