Welcome to our home away from home located at Long Beach Resort. We like to refer to our condo as Emerald Reflections, a place you can sit back, relax, and reflect on the things that are truly important in life, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. What better way to relax and reflect than to sit back and enjoy the beauty of the Emerald Coast with emerald green waters drifting into the sugary white sand beach, while the sun sets slowly behind the majestic Gulf of Mexico.
We purchased the condo late 2014. What was intended to be a few updates, ended up being a substantial remodel, including new tile floors, paint, new bathroom fixtures including new cabinetry and granite countertops and a complete kitchen remodel including cabinetry, granite and stainless appliances. Of course all the furnishings are brand new as well.
The condo itself is gulf front, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen with full size appliances. The main attraction of this unit is the floor plan. Each bedroom has floor to ceiling windows offering unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico, this is not typical for most condos in the area. In addition, the balcony is much larger than most condos in Panama City Beach. The rooms are large and very comfortable, total square footage is approximately 1,350.
The kitchen is stocked with new cookware and kitchen utensils, including most anything you would need if you choose to prepare meals during your stay. Also, as mentioned earlier we have brand new stainless appliances including refrigerator, range, dishwasher and over the range microwave. The unit also is equipped with a washer and dryer, iron, and ironing board for your convenience.
In addition to new furniture in the living room, you will also find a 50" LG Smart TV, Blueray player, and a Bluetooth sound bar so you can link your personal music selection from your Bluetooth device if you desire. The sofa includes a queen size sleeper, allowing accommodations of up to 8.
The bedrooms have new top quality plush pillow top mattresses and luxury linens. The master bedroom has a king size bed, bedroom 2 offers 2 queen size beds. Each bedroom has a 40" Flat Screen TV.
The resort itself offers 24 hour gated security with security guard for your safety. There are 3 pools and 2 hot tubs, so no concern for over crowding. The largest, centrally located pool, is lagoon style. Adjacent to the lagoon pool is the "Hangout", a small snack shop offering lunch items and frozen drinks while you're enjoying the pool. The name Long Beach Resort was derived from the unusually large private beach the resort owns. It is the largest resort owned beach in Panama City Beach with over 1300 feet of private beach access, again, no concerns of overcrowding at this beach.
We invite you to come sit back, relax and reflect.

About Tom and Crystal Haney
Greetings. Originally, from Southern Illinois, we reside just south of Indianapolis, IN. We first visited PCB several years ago on our first vacation after we were married, we immediately felt a connection to the area. We have travelled to several areas in FL and other beach destinations, but we are always drawn back to PCB. We love the casual, mellow atmosphere and the fantastic friendly people. Of course the white sand and emerald waters are second to none. After staying in several condos, they were always "just ok". We wanted to have a place to call our own and a place to share with others that offers a "wow factor", a place where our guests want to come back year after year.
Tom and Crystal Haney purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Tom and Crystal Haney chose Panama City Beach
After looking at several properties in Panama City Beach, at first visit, we knew Long Beach Resort was the one for us. Long Beach Resort is a very fresh and well maintained property, much nicer than many newer properties in the area. However three things stood out to us, the amazing floor plan, the lagoon style pool with the "Hangout" poolside restaurant / bar, and the amazing centralized location, all of which are second to none. As you will read in practically every other Long Beach listing, the floor plans are large, very functional, and boast floor to ceiling windows. Most importantly, each bedroom is ocean front with a private bath, which is great for 2 families, no more arguing over who gets the room with the Ocean View. You walk in to the unit and immediately you're drawn to the wall of windows and the double sliding door leading to the oversized patio. Truly an amazing feature unlike any other complex on the beach. The resort also offers 3 pools including the centrally located, large lagoon style pool landscaped with beautiful palm trees and lush vegetation. Adjacent to the main pool is the "Hangout", which is a poolside snack bar offering a quick lunch and your favorite frozen beverage with the convenience of staying poolside. The two other pools in the complex are smaller and offer a little more privacy if that's what you prefer. Also, adjacent to each pool is a hot tub. Finally, the location is perfect and very centralized. Fantastic restaurants, shopping and recreational activities are all within walking distance.

Our stay in Panama City was great. The condo is nice and clean and the view is amazing! Tom and Crystal were great to work with in making sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation! I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone visiting Panama City Beach!!
The unit was well kept, clean and updated. It was comfortable will all the amenities of home.
I love love love this condo!!
We had the best experience with this beautiful condo. It is decorated so tastefully and the view is just amazing! There is not one area where you don’t have a view of the beach and ocean. Working with crystal was awesome! We loved this condo and visiting during thanksgiving is always my favorite.
This place is wonderful!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It is so nicely decorated and clean. It is well equipped with all kitchen utensils and everything that you need for your stay as well. We will definitely come stay here again.
Loved this condo!
The condo was absolutely beautiful, and had everything that we needed for a wonderful week at the beach! We loved everything about it, especially the chair service that was included with the rental. We also loved the location and that it's close to so many things. Thanks for sharing your condo with us. We would definitely stay here again!
Great vacation get away!!! Totally worth every penny.
The updated condo was gorgeous, only topped by the amazing view. The furnishings were beautiful and it was decorated more like an upscale resort and not a cheesy beach themed hotel. The bathrooms were a total plus. Loved the garden tubs! The pool and spa were clean and very well maintained in addition to having a very appealing island feel. Everything was provided for us from plush linens to every kitchen item needed, along with beach accessories. There were two beach travel loungers there that we fell in love with, so much that we will most likely order our own. On top of all of that the owners, Tom and Crystal were wonderful to work with. Our only small complaint was the mattresses. The master bedroom mattress sank in the middle and when we moved in our sleep it seemed to make the braces (wooden slats) slide around under the mattress. This needs to be addressed. Other than that, it would have been 5 stars all the way. We will definitely recommend this rental to friends and family and hopefully return ourselves in the near future.
Thank you for the response and feedback. The master bedroom bed has been repaired. We had 2 supporting slats that needed repaired. We encourage any and all feedback and attempt resolution as soon as possible.
Long Beach Resort sits directly on 1,300 feet of beautiful white sand and emerald waters, the largest resort beach in Panama City Beach. Long Beach is conveniently located in the heart of PCB activities, near the intersection of famous Front Beach Road and Thomas Drive. The resort is within walking distance to fantastic restaurants, recreational activities, and shopping. The condo itself is on the 8th floor of tower 2. We specifically selected this unit and it's location for a few reasons. Tower 2 is in the center of the complex with convenient entry, access and parking. Tower 2 is also adjacent to the "lagoon pool", the largest pool on the property featuring beautiful palm trees and rock formations, exuding a real tropical atmosphere. In addition, the "hang out" is also adjacent to Tower 2, which is convenient for a quick lunch or your favorite tropical cocktail. The 8th floor, is this important? We think so. This is a perfect "in between level". The 8th floor is low enough offering full access views of the majestic beach, water and sunsets, but high enough to maintain privacy and avoid unwanted noise, still allowing for the enjoyment and the relaxing sound of the waves crashing into the sand. Unit 4, what does this mean? Unit 4 is the western most 2 bedroom unit, allowing for unobstructed views of the evening sunset from the one-of-a-kind oversized balcony. If you enjoy the shimmers of the morning sun glistening off the water, evening sunsets reserved for postcards, and dozing off to the relaxing sound of waves crashing into the sand, then this is the unit for you.
