About the owner: Paula and I are retired military. I joined the Army during the Vietnam War and served 2 tours in Vietnam as a Helicopter Pilot. I served as an Aviation Test Pilot and Army Aviator for 23 years, testing and perfecting all of our new aircraft and tactics, techniques, and procedures for their utilization. Paula is retired Civil Service and wrote and edited the Army's Safety Magazine for 32 years. WE LOVE OUR MILITARY!! We live in Enterprise / Ft. Rucker, Alabama (home of Army Aviation), just an hour and a half from our condo. We try to bring our military ethos to everything we do and especially our "Paradise Found". Paula and I are semi-retired now and enjoy golf, our condo, the beautiful beaches that we are blessed with, and the Panama City Beach experience. We love our condo at Long Beach Resort and ensure that it is not abused or damaged in any way by having the best renters in the world stay with us.
Why this property? Paula an I have been coming to the Beach for many years. We always wanted to own our little home away from home and finally decided on Long Beach Resort. It has the best floor plan on the beach. The living area and both bedrooms are on the Gulf side and both have access to the over-sized balcony. We take pride in keeping our "Paradise Found" in tip top shape. The resort is gated and secure which means a lot to our guests and us too. The 4 Towers of Long Beach Resort are not skyscrapers so the customer density is not overwhelming. There is never a long wait for elevators, there is ample parking, the beach is literally a stones throw away from our condo, the grounds are very well maintained, and best of all-----THE BEACH!
We continue to update our condo with new tile throughout to include the balcony, new granite countertops, new cabinets, new paint, a new high end shower in the master en suite, and new flat screen TV's.
Long Beach Resort and our "Paradise Found" is close to everything: golf courses, Pier Park, Old St. Andrews, St. Andrews State Park, Boating, Fishing, Touring, and quiet walks on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
I'm always a little unsure about renting a vacation condo by email but I can not say enough good words about this condo! All the photos are exactly how it looks. It was very clean! Great location to anything you want in PCB. It was right off the elevator and then close to the beach! Absolutely gorgeous view! The condo was stocked w/ everything we needed. We will definitely be renting this condo again! Thank you for being a great couple to rent from!
We had a great and relaxing time at Paradise Found. It was excellent and just as the pictures showed. Bedrooms were great with floor to ceiling windows. View was amazing. Condo was equipped with everything we needed and more. Loved the decor throughput thr condo. Third floor provided the best view of the gulf and balcony was oversized with plenty of space. Two lounge chairs and tall table with chairs were very comfortable while looking at the amazing view. This condo was one of the best we have stayed. I read the view about mice. The condo is very clean and we seen no insects or mice. I think if this was true, we would of seen something. Smelled clean and fresh so unsure and we stayed first week in June. Thanks again for allowing us to use your condo.
"What you see is what you get." Those words could not be truer! When I spoke with Darrell on the phone that is exactly what he said to me. This condo is awesome. The floor to ceiling windows in both bedrooms and the great room have a spectacular view of the beach and ocean. You can hear the waves crashing. And the sunsets from the balcony were spectacular. We were thrilled to have found this place. It was a last minute booking and I was pleased when Darrell answered my emails so quickly. When I spoke with him on the phone I knew Paradise Found was the place to be! Everything in the condo was in good working order and the furniture clean and comfortable. I felt like I was at home. We highly recommend Paradise Found to anyone looking for a wonderful beach vacation. Thank you again, Darrell and Paula for sharing your home with us.
We loved our stay at this condo,it had plenty of everything. The condo was decorated beautifully,we loved the high top balcony furniture,loved sitting for hours looking at the ocean!! We would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay,thanks for sharing your wonderful place!! "Paradise Found"
The condo is right on the beach! What time we weren't down on the beach, we were on the balcony. Liked the high top table out there -- we ate breakfast and lunch out there most days. Third floor was just right -- not too high up, but high enough to see out & over. The layout is great, with both bedrooms having that fabulous view. The complex is a bit older, but the unit is well-kept and has been updated. Big stretch of beach for this complex. Lots of little things that made a big difference -- starter supply of paper goods, nice pillows, plenty of carts to haul groceries & luggage in & out, quick elevators, and very convenient location -- Wal-Mart not even 5 minutes away. Owners could not have been nicer to work with -- we were last minute renters, and they met us on the way down to give us the instruction packet. Would stay again!
This is a beautiful place! There are floor to ceiling windows across the whole front of the condo, and the view is amazing from this third floor unit! There is a bedroom on each side of the living area, each with a wall of windows and a door to the very generous balcony! (The layout of the condos at Long Beach is the primary reason we wanted to stay at Long Beach.) This condo is decorated very nicely and tastefully, and we were very comfortable during our stay. The balcony had a tall table and chairs (which was great to see over the railing), as well lounge chairs for putting your feet up and relaxing! Darrell was great to work with and responded promptly to my emails leading up to our visit. We arrived about 15 minutes early the first day of our stay and were surprised to find the condo had not been cleaned. We made a quick call to Darrell and learned that there had been a death in their family. He apologized for the mix-up, and the Conleys, who clean the condo, were there within minutes! My parents, who were coming from Illinois to join us on vacation, were still over an hour we relaxed on the balcony while we waited for them and for the condo to be cleaned. The Conleys were very friendly and did a fantastic and thorough job! Upon their exit, they asked us what we liked to drink, and after lunch the following day, they dropped off some drinks for us to further extend their apologies. We really appreciated this gesture and ended up having a great vacation! We had beautiful weather the whole week, with not one drop of rain! :) We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend "Paradise Found!" Great location, too! Thank you so much!
I hesitate to mention what a beautiful Condo this is as it might be harder to get it back next yr. The up-dated, up-graded kitchen and bathrooms were just awesome. All the rooms have a beachy feel without going overboard with cheap/cheesy decorations. The Condo is very elegant. The owners were wonderful to work with. The weather was perfect, not even and afternoon shower. We say many Dolphins jumping around in the crystal clear water. Just magnificent. It was a perfect vacations. Thanks, Darrell and Paula.
This condo was everything the pictures show and more. I have rented from the same people for over 30 years. I tried a new place this year, because our Spring break fell at a different time. The owners were so nice to work with, I felt like I knew them. The condo was very clean and had the most comfortable beds, I have ever slept in! There was supposedly over 400,00 spring breakers this year, the way the condo is set up, we did not seen anything but families. It was easy to get in and out of, perfect location. I love the ceiling to floor windows, I am sure it was full of fingerprints, from our child who loved watching the dolphins play in the mornings. The maintenance people even came out to help me with my dead battery. AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME!
This condo was exactly as the pictures show. Darrell and Paula have done an excellent job in decorating and furnishing the condo. We had everything that we needed here. All we had to supply was the food! The most important thing was that it was CLEAN!!! Thank you so much. We enjoyed our vacation so much!!!
Love this place it is beautiful. This is our second year to stay in "Paradise Found" and plan on staying there again next year if available. Darrell & Paula are so great to work with. We had great weather and a wonderful time. We have been staying at Long Beach Resort for about 5 year and won't stay anywhere else.

Great Vacation Spot
The area and the ocean was beautiful. The condo had everything we needed. I especially liked the layout of the condo, to where there were two masters (one on each side). I also loved having all of the living, dinning, and kitchen with wall to wall sliding windowed doors. The patio had plenty of seating and lounging furniture. We had an awesome vacation.

Absolutely loved this condo, everything was just as the pictures shows and then some. Beds were so comfortable and had everything we needed. I have stayed at other where the beds were as hard as brick and not clean, and had to clean after we got there, but this one was so clean and was just amazing. I have been coming to Flordia for years and this is one of the best we have stayed at. We have stayed at Long Beach now for 4 year and love it there. We will be using this one again as soon as we get dates scheduled. Owners are great to work with, did not have a problem at all, I just cant think of all the great thing I liked to say about this condo. Our stay was just absolutely amazing, weather was great, water was beautiful, will be back soon.

We stayed at Paradise Found and it was just as beautiful as the pictures, beds were great, has every thing you need and a little extra. This is my 4th year at Long Beach and this is the best condo we've had. I have been coming for about 20 something years to Flordia and staying different places and this one is one of the best we've had, I can't say enough good about this rental. The others have had beds hard as bricks, air didn't work, etc,. No problems with this one every thing was great will definately use it again. Just didn't get to stay long enough.
