About Barbara Bennett

My husband and I grew up in the midwest (Chicago and Michigan to be exact.) As adults we each moved separately to Colorado and met in Vail. We've been together more than thirty years and have one daughter. We're retired teachers who love to travel. In 1998, we accepted a one year teacher exchange to Australia, swapped houses, jobs and lives with a wonderful family from Sandy Beach, NSW, and from then until now it was our dream to live at the beach. We believe Panama City Beach is as beautiful as any beach we've seen anywhere.

Barbara Bennett purchased this condo in 2014

Why Barbara Bennett chose Long Beach

Five years ago we came to Panama City Beach for the first time and rented a unit close to the beach for two months. We fell in love with the area and bought a house hoping to retire here. After living in the mountains of Colorado for more than thirty years, we were ready for a change and this is it! We've just purchased this luxurious condominium to share with other families and when it's not rented, we hope to enjoy it ourselves.

What makes this condo unique

Ocean Villa is in the heart of Panama City Beach. From our balcony we can see up and down the pristeen white sand beach, scan the Gulf for dolphins, relax and watch the sunset over the water. We feel like this place is what we worked our entire lives to have. The condo is spacious and elegant with luxurious Caribbean decor. The views are spectacular. We think you'll love this piece of what we call heaven on earth.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bennett's condo for spring break week. We normally go to the east coast, but decided to try the gulf coast this year. The condo was well appointed and the pictures are accurate; but, the pictures don't convey the overall warmth of the unit.

Barb was responsive and helpful providing all the welcome info the week before arrived and available during our stay. The unit was well appointed and freshly cleaned. We loved sitting outside on the patio overlooking the ocean enjoying our meals or just relaxing to the soothing ocean sounds in the evenings. While the condo is on the 6th floor, it is really only the 4th floor above the beach because of the parking deck, so access by stairs or elevator was convenient. I noticed that the property was well maintained and staff were visable cleaning, setting up, taking down, etc. all during the week. Provided that extra sense of security given all the spring breakers.

The location of the condo was PERFECT! Front avenue was a mess with traffic and construction, but Barb made us aware of the parking desk across the street that featured a covered walkway to the property. That parking deck faced a cross street that allowed easy access to area attractions, restaurants, or shopping such as Pier Park without fighting the front avenue traffic.

The beach was beautiful with fantastic sunrises and sunsets. The water was too cold for us to really enjoy playing in, but water clarity was excellent. We could see large fish swimming up and down the beach in the mornings and evenings. The beaches were crowded and wave-runners were everywhere, but given how cold the water was, we just watched and enjoyed. We would love to come back when school is out and enjoy renting a wave-runner and/or parasailing. A lot of activities, clean beaches, clear water, is calling us back.

I would definitely recommend this the Bennett's condo to anyone visiting the area. We will definitely be back adding this location to our favorites list.

Owner's Response: Hi Ben, We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. We have had the opportunity to have a couple of stay-cations at the condo and that always gives us a sense of what is needed to cook or enjoy a rainy day. Our cleaners have been with us since we purchased the property and they are like family. We will definitely let them know. Looking forward to a return visit from you. Thanks, Barb

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Barb's condo was 'as advertised'! Beautiful setting on the beach. 6th floor unit is ideal for watching the waves roll in, and low enough to take the stairs if you want to skip the elevator. Condo is beautifully decorated with high-end furnishings, and kitchen is well supplied. Building and unit are well-maintained, and Barb is super easy to work with.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our three week stay at this unit. The owners are great to work with, the unit is clean, spacious well decorated and the balcony is extra large. The beautiful white sand beach is just a short walk. Would have rented for next winter if it was not already booked for Jan and Feb.

Beautiful, great location and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the cleanest condos that we have ever stayed in. Beautifully decorated with a great location. We enjoyed the "extras" that were in the condo (night lights, hair dryers, etc.) Barb was very nice to work with.
