About the Property
Our condo is AWESOME, guest love us and our only condo, (our second home). Once you settle back and relax in our condo you will know without a doubt this is the vacation spot and condo you have been looking for. The always newly decorated condo on the top floor is nothing short of being amazing with a view that's spectacular.
Words cannot describe the view in the morning from the penthouse balcony watching the Dolphins play; it's truly a blessing to rise early, grab a Danish, a cup of coffee, then enjoy the wonders of the Gulf from the balcony. After a day on the beach or a day of shopping, watching the sun set over the emerald-green waters from the balcony is breath taking and romantic.

Debbie and I make several trips to our second home throughout the year and we always find time to up-date assorted items throughout the condo, replacing furniture, kitchen items and adding or replacing the décor, so there is always something new and refreshing to see in our condo. Primary reason we mention "newly decorated" above. There is always something new. We take suggestions from our guest seriously and if feasible we add to or up-grade accordingly. We take pleasure in keeping our condo not only in first class condition for us, but for you as our guest. A few of the amenities that await you are: flat screen TV's, (New 2016 60" Smart TV in living room) Blue Ray DVD's, cable, HBO, internet, Free Wi-Fi, DVD library, fully equipped kitchen, and many more amenities not mentioned. The reviews our previous guest have posted on our site will give you reassurance that you will not be at all disappointed; as condo owners our guest are our best critics.

We also provide free beach service for our guest; the service is provided by a private contractor located on site from March through October. The service consists of two lounge chairs with umbrella. You only need to tell the attendant on duty you are the guest of Gary and Debbie Payne in condo # 2307 and they will provide you with special personal service.
The only thing missing from this Beautiful Fabulous Resort today is you.
Take a moment to view the Condo awaiting you, and some of the few amenities calling you.
You will find that our Condo is cozy, inviting, quiet, relaxing, and ready for your arrival; you only need to unload your bags, relax & enjoy the wonders the Awe-inspiring Lord blessed us with.
The much talked about PIER PARK is here and only two miles east of Celadon. The festivities, shops, dining facilities, along with the extraordinary events ongoing daily and nightly makes this an awesome and exciting place to visit after a day on the beach day-after-day. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is just across the street from the beach and features a roof top view of the Gulf; order a drink and enjoy the cool breeze coming in from the Gulf while watching the waves roll in.
You will find that the Celadon is an upscale resort on the quiet end of Panama City Beach. For a little taste of the active night life all one needs to do is head East on Front Beach Road. There one will find several amusement parks for the kids, numerous putt-putt golf courses, go-cart racing, night clubs, specialty boutiques, dozens of excellent restaurants, water parks and much more.
This is our only condo and rental property; thus we take special pride in our condo, (it's our second home). If you’re accustom to renting condos and you find supplies and necessities something you need to go out and purchase, then you have been renting from the wrong owners. We furnish everything except your clothes and personal hygiene necessities. There is a reason the majority of our guest return year after year; we’re sure you will be hooked once you discover the at home feeling and accommodations we provide.
Celadon Beach Resort is one of the most luxurious condominiums located around Panama City Beach; located on the West end of the beach it offers one of the most relaxing and welcoming location in Panama City Beach Florida. Panama City Beach is famously home to 27 miles of sugar-white sand beaches, but we also offer tons of fun-filled attractions for guests to enjoy off the beach. Whether you want to commune with nature or dance the night away, you can find your fun in Panama City Beach. Panama City Beach attractions for kids will earn a special place in your heart - that place reserved for tons of fun without long lines or sky-high prices. Not one but two giant mazes, a stingray petting pool, a four-story science puzzle paradise - just a fraction of attractions for kids in Panama City Beach!
ATTRACTIONS FOR ALL AGES
If you're not down for go-karts and putt-putt, no worries - the beach isn't the only all-ages game in town!
Shipwreck Island Water Park has everything from the toddler-friendly Tadpole Hole to racing slides and "river" rapids, while the popular Gulf World Marine Park can fill your day with animal shows and exhibits, and even the chance to shadow the Park's animal trainers for a day. Nature-lovers love our eco-tours and the wilderness of Camp Helen and St. Andrews state parks. Or take your fiancé (church group, Navy reunion buddies) to goggle at 400+ bizarre exhibits at Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium.
For the wise-in-years but young-at-heart, attractions in Panama City Beach let you swim with dolphins or launch yourself at 100 mph from a giant slingshot 300 feet in the air. Why should kids have all the fun?!
PANAMA CITY BEACH SEAFOOD RESTAURANTS:
Vacationing may be a day at the beach (literally), but you still need your fuel morning, noon and night. Panama City Beach restaurants follow a simple 3-part formula: friendly service, casual atmosphere and great food. You may find it hard to believe that a little place like Panama City Beach could earn the nickname “Seafood Capital of the World,” but one taste of our char-grilled grouper (it flakes onto your fork) or fresh, plump Apalachicola oysters (still harvested by hand from shallow, wild beds) and you’ll know why. Seafood restaurants in Panama City Beach prepare some of the finest seafood you’ll ever find, whether it’s jumbo Gulf shrimp stuffed with buttery blue crab, Cajun crawfish or blackened Amberjack. It’s also true that some of the best “restaurants” in Panama City Beach aren’t even restaurants, technically speaking! They’re seafood markets, specializing in the freshest catch. Pick what you want and have it steamed and seasoned on the spot, then wrapped up hot and ready to go!
SOUTHERN BARBECUE, STEAK & MORE:
Panama City Beach may specialize in seafood, but there’s no shortage of other options. Settle in for some Southern-style pulled pork or order up a juicy, tender steak, solo or surf-n-turf. Some of the best restaurants in Panama City Beach specialize in cuisine from around the world. From Italian to sushi, Thai noodles to Caribbean jerk, restaurants in Panama City Beach serve it all with a side of smiles. Our favorite BBQ is Back Beach BBQ located on Back Beach road (Hwy 98). Best BBQ we’ve had in decades; less than a mile from the condo too.
Other Vacation Rental Amenities
It’s not a requirement, but if you’re pleased with the beach service provided it is customary to tip the attendant for his/her service.

About the owner: Debbie and I were married in the fall of 1976 and have vacationed in Panama City Beach FL. every year we have had the opportunity. We have visited numerous other vacation spots around the world, but have always been drawn back to the sugar white sands of Panama City Beach.
We are both from the Nashville Tennessee area; Debbie from Mt. Juliet and I call Hermitage home. Our primary home is in Cabot Arkansas. We both retired from the military (Air Force) in Arkansas and returned to work in Civil Service for the Department of Defense in the Air Force from the same base we retired from. Our long-term goal will be to final retire in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida being close to my brother(s); Donnie Payne living in PCB and Bill Dozier living in GA.
Why this property? The primary reason we chose Celadon was location, west end of the beach is fabulous and relaxing. Really it gets no better than this!

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Debbie and Gary have thought of everything you need to make your stay in their condo comfortable. Everything is tastefully decorated, no expense has been spared to make this 'home away from home' I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay.
Beautiful unit. They have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We would definitely return to stay here again.
This was the first family vacation for my wife and four young kids in many years. The pictures, price, and location advertised on this site drew us to want to stay at Gary and Debbie's condo on PCB. The condo was VERY clean, well decorated, and well maintained; we were comfortable and happy our whole stay. There were lots of amenities in the rooms, and the 23rd floor view is amazing! The location was perfect for us too, being located on the west end of the strip, where there is less traffic and partiers. Gary and Debbie were quick, helpful, and friendly in responding to my rental inquiries and other questions. We'll certainly recommend this property to our friends and family, and hope to stay there again next summer!
Your condo is amazing! Beautifully decorated and a great view! You guys thought of everything to make our stay perfect! I look foward to going back in September!!
Wonderful view, everything that you could possibly need was provided. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated. The owners were very helpful and not worrying about keeping up with a room key was great.
Had the pleasure to stay in Gary & Debbie's condo 9/9 - 9/12. First let me say that just communicating with these owners via email makes you feel like you have known them all along and are good friends. The condo itself is beautiful and very comfortable. The view from the balcony is outstanding and we have never seen as many dolphins in their natural surroundings as we did during our stay. The overall property was very well maintained with maintenance workers out in force keeping things clean and operational. All the ammenities were great including the beach service and I could not recommend more highly to anyone that this condo is the place to stay in PCB. We will look forward to having the opportunity again in the future to stay here.
Gary & Debbie, As soon as my husband and I walked in unit 2307, we were absolutely blown away by how spectacular it is! The decor is fabulous and this condo presents all the comforts of home, and then some! The location is perfect and the view was phenomenal. We were blessed to see the dolphins, sea turtles, stingrays, manta rays, and even a shark (!!) on almost a daily basis! It was evident that you guys took into consideration everything we could need or want during our stay and made it available to us. Thank you so very much for opening your beauitful home to us! We enjoyed every moment of our stay here. You guys are awesome! Thanks for blessing us!
Highly recommend this condo. It is a perfect layout and great top floor views! The owners have EVERYTHING covered and have decorated beautifully!! The condo was sparkling clean and very well maintained! The owners are very easily contacted and there to help immediately! LOVE THIS PLACE!! :)
Spent a week in Gary and Debbie's unit in July. Unit was very comfortable and clean. Decor was beautiful and they provided us everything we needed for a week of stay!!! Free beach service was much appreciated!!!
This was our first family vacation in many years. My husband & I set out to find an affordable, peak-season condo to rent for a week in Florida. We wanted to be close to the beach, but not in the "party zone" with rowdy people running around all night. We came across this condo, the price was right & it looked like a beautiful place from the photos, so I gave the owner (Gary) a call to inquire about it. He was very courteous & well-spoken on the phone. He wasted no time giving me the details about the place & its surrounding attractions. We booked for the week of June 18-June 25. I called on several occasions with questions & even asked for any suggestions he may have on things my family & I could do there. He was gracious enough to mail me a package that included a map with brochures that helped tremendously on planning our perfect vacation getaway. When we got to Celadon Resort, everything was as described in the photos/description (even more beautiful than we had expected!) The place is really attractive & cozy. We found ourselves spending lots of time out on the balcony, enjoying the constant breeze & view. The beach was easily assessible, clean, beautiful, and so was the water. We ended up going almost every day. Surprisingly, it was not over crowded at all during any of our visits. Sometimes, there were only a few other people there for our entire outings; most were mature couples, or families with younger children. Everyone that we met during our stay there was friendly. We couldn't ask for a nicer landlord. Gary & Debbie went out of their way to make sure everything went well for us, and we will surely be returning! I would highly recommend this condo for anyone of any age. We've already got family interested in contacting them to reserve their vacation spot. In summary: Description as advertised: Very Accurate Condition of property on arrival: Excellent & very clean. Cleanliness of entire complex: Excellent Relative Location: Very good. Lots close by. Accessibility: Excellent with stairs/elevator to all floors. There are also rolling carts by the elevator, provided free of charge for guests. (We unloaded our entire car in 1 load, using one cart + elevator.) Noteworthy: Great internet, private, nice kitchen w/lots of dishes & cookware, washer/dryer, owners supplied us with amenities that most do not. Would Highly Recommend to: Any adults or families (especially couples) seeking a peaceful beach vacation with all the amenities of home.
My husband stayed home but I got to take the kids to Panama City Beach and we had a wonderful time. The condo was beautiful and had a great view. There was plenty of room for the kids to sleep and the furnishings were beautiful, and everything was new and very clean and taken care of. The kids loved the pools and the close availabilty of the beach. The water was great. The pier nearby with the restaurants and shops was great also. Thanks for your hospitality. We had a great time and will be back again.
My family and i stayed in gary and debbies condo and it was great the condo is very inviting and cozy. The views are amazing. The only downfall was we had to leave. We will definitely be back and hopefully be able to stay in gary and debbies condo again. Thank you gary and debbie for opening up your home to my family and i.

Josh, thanks for taking the time to write a review, we deeply appreciate it. We're happy you found the condo inviting and we look forward to your future vacations with us. Gary & Debbie Payne.
This condo will spoil you from the minute you walk in the door. Clean, comfortable, fully equipped and the attention to detail is remarkable. The view is breathtaking, the white sand and clear blue water are second to none. Easy access to everything that you need yet quiet enough that you are away from the nightlife. We will stay here again in the future.

Thanks Greg for the nice review. Looking forward to your vacation stays to come. We're happy knowing you had a wonderful time. Gary & Debbie.
Best clean and friendliest condo!!!
Gary & Debbie have the cleanest condo ever. So up to date and made us feel so very special. They have special treats waiting for your arrival and they have thought of almost everything in case you have forgotten something. This condo has free beach service also which is great! They text me and made sure everything was ok and made sure we didn't need anything. They really care about their condo rental families and it shows by the way you are welcomed. Super nice couple to work with and we will rent from them again. We have stayed at Celadon for several years now by other owners and it's a great family oriented place to stay. I will have to say I've never been treated as great as they treated us though. We were so impressed with them and made us feel so much like family. Can't wait to go back! Thank you so much for making us feel so special during this corona virus time. Couldn't have ask for a better place!

Reba, this has to be the best review we have ever received. We're so happy you enjoyed the vacation and our condo. we look forward to your return. Thanks for being our guest. Gary & Debbie.
This was the 2nd time we stayed at Gary’s place. We love it! Gary is so easy to work with and accommodating. The place is beautiful and the view is amazing. They have everything you need at the condo. The beach service is an added bonus - no need to lug everything down to the beach - just take your towel and your chairs and umbrella are there waiting for you. Highly recommend!

Thanks Tia for the nice review. Gary & Debbie
Beautiful clean everything we need!
Beautiful condo right on the beach. It had everything we needed and more. Although we didn’t use it this time, there’s a great pool and work out room. Very close to shopping and restaurants. Definitely our favorite place to stay!
Stayed: September 2019Submitted: September 15, 2019
Stayed at in August and had a great time my “home away from home “ was amazing. Stayed on the 23rd had an amazing view and was just steps from the beach. Accommodations was awesome with everything we needed right there. We where 5 miles from Pier Park. Thank you!
Stayed: August 2019Submitted: September 15, 2019
We had a beautiful condo on the 23rd floor. Was easy to book. Had issues with PayPal nor releasing payment right away to the condo owner but the condo owner was very patient and all worked out well.

Thanks Crystal for taking the time to leave a review. We hope to have you return as our guest again.
This was our second time staying in this condo! We had an amazing time! Gary and Debbie provide so much! My kids loved the snack basket! The view is amazing! We loved knowing we didn’t need to bring chairs for the beach or even toys..they provide it all (less packing for us)! Great communication with the owners! We will definitely be booking again!!
Stayed: July 2019Submitted: July 29, 2019
From the moment we opened the door we could tell that the condo is loved. It was so inviting, warm and well took care of. The first things the kids noticed was the neatly arranged snacks, for myself and my husband it was the coffee which needed after a 9hr drive. Debbie and Gary were pleased to answer any question I had before arriving in reasonable time. The beach chairs was a nice extra but the kids enjoyed the buggie boards and sand toys that was located under the bunks. We took great care of the condo and hope to return one day. Sad that we are leaving in the morning.

Extras were icing on the cake!
Such a wonderful Condo and the owners were incredible to rent from!

I’m saving this one for future renting!To my fellow THIS ONE! You will not be disappointed!God Bless! Sharon
