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:
We had a wonderful vacation at this condo!!! The unit has a great view and is decorated nicely! We will be back!!
We stayed at Paradise Found soon after the ban on short-term rentals was lifted. This was a much needed getaway after being stuck at home due to COVID-19. We have been staying at various locations across the Emerald Coast for the past 30+ years and Paradise Found was by far the cleanest and nicest rental property that we have stayed at. The cleaning staff took extra precautions to ensure that everything was sanitized before we checked in. From the moment we walked in the door, we could smell how clean everything was. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked, there were plenty of bath towels and there was even a new high-end bar height patio set. We were worried that the tropical storm would ruin our trip but luckily we only had one bad day with the remainder of the week being beautiful. The beach chairs and umbrella came in very handy and allowed us to meet a couple of very nice families that we will keep in contact with. We loved having the choice of pools and enjoyed swimming at night. Most properties close their pools at 9:00 PM but the pools at Long Beach stay open until midnight. The Hangout was a fantastic option for when we didn't feel like going out for a meal. They have very good food for fantastic prices. They also serve a wide variety of adult beverages and we took full advantage of the frozen drinks. The owners are amazing people and very good to work with. Paradise Found is now our go to rental property when staying at PCB. We are already planning our stay for 2021.
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.
Condo has everything — From new kitchen sink, faucets, mattresses, teak dining set, bathrooms, and extra wide balcony. Lovely walk-in shower. Separate. Deep garden tub with safety rails to assist you getting in & out easily in case you need that. Super Walmart, MacDonalds, children entertainment - within one & two blocks. Kitchen is more than fully stocked. Up to date front loader washer & dryer. Owner is just a text away. Elevator & garbage chute are 5-10 steps from entrance to your own condo unit. No noise from elevator. Nice.... Convenient.... Comfortable.
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.
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.
Beautiful condo. Everything described as noted. Wonderful and friendly couple to work with. Hope to stay again.
This is a great condo. Everything is outstanding and the owners are great to work with. The location is amazing, right on the beach with the best views in the world. The condo is large, both bedrooms and the living room open onto the balcony which is right on the water. The pools are in great shape and the one next to the condo is heated! Paula and Darrell are ex military and know what right looks like.
