Overview

Florida Panhandle Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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 newly decorated condo on the top floor is nothing short of being absolutely 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.

One will quickly discover that 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. All of the property and amenities located on Celadon are maintained in an outstanding condition by an excellent and professional maintenance staff. With the vast amount of amenities available to one at Celadon, one will quickly agree that nothing is ever overlooked. A few of the amenities awaiting you are: Two Spa Tubs, Two Heated Pools (the north pool is indoor transitioning to the out-doors, the other pool is located out-doors on the south side), Tennis Court, Fitness Center, Covered Garage Parking, Covered Walk-Way from Garage, and natures own beautiful world famous SUGAR-WHITE SAND BEACH!!.

Debbie and I make several trips to our second home throughout the year and we always find time to up-date various 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. 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, Blue Ray DVD's, cable, HBO, internet, Free Wi-Fi, DVD library, phone with free long distance calling, fully equipped kitchen, and many more amenities not mentioned. The reviews our previous guest have posted on our VRBO site will give you reassurance that you will not be at all disappointed; as condo owners our guest are our best critics. We appreciate positive comments as to improve on already the best of the best; and appreciate negative comments to correct discrepancies that arise in-between our visits.

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.

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 special 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.

About Owners Gary & Debbie

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 (AF) here in Arkansas, going back to work in Civil Service for the Department of Defense. Our long term goal will be to final retire in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida in 2019 being close to my brother(s); Donnie Payne living in PCB and Bill Dozier living in GA.

Owners Gary & Debbie purchased this condo in 2010

Why Owners Gary & Debbie chose Florida Panhandle

The primary reason we chose Celadon was location, west end of the beach is fabulous and relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

We really enjoy dinning out in the evenings, with Capt. Andersons being #1 and Carrabba’s Italian Grill #2. We always bring our bikes and Seadoo when we visit our second home, always looking forward to rising early and riding the bikes to Thomas Donuts for breakfast. Another highlight of rising early is sitting on the balcony watching the Dolphins and stingrays play and swim by. In the evening we love walking through Pier Park, going through the shops and shopping for the condo is a highlight we always look forward to. The view from the top floor is spectacular! Debbie & I absolutely love our second home and we're sure you will also.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

This is our 4th time vacationing in Panama. We have stayed at Sunbird, Tidewater, and this is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Celadon but the 1st at this condo. The condo is beautifully decorated and was very clean. We felt at home during our stay. The extra amenities were awesome and the view...WOW. The tall chairs made the view even more breathtaking. Gary was a pleasure to deal with. We will be back.

Beautiful, quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! It's at the end away from the "strip" but you can walk to a few shops nearby if you like. We've stayed in A LOT of condos and this one was by far one of my favorites. They actually supply you with toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, and even a few snacks. Also, it's incredibly clean! This is our first time in a "high rise" but the elevator was so close by and it takes you right to the beach so it wasn't a problem. The view from the balcony was gorgeous and you could see sharks and sting rays in the morning and late in the afternoon. We had one small hiccup with the beach chair service. It is not first come first serve but if you ask them to book in advance some of the kids will let you and some of them won't. The young lady working while we were there was very rude. If you're not picky about where they put you then you won't have any problems. I didn't want to be in the middle of everyone so I was trying to pick chairs on the end which are in high demand I suppose, she didn't like that and told me she wasn't going to "argue" with me and I could take or leave what she offered. It all worked itself out though. In the future, on all beach trips, we'll be bringing a tent umbrella and our own chairs so we can pick anywhere we like. If you want to see other beach views we highly suggest St. Andrews state park. It's about a 20-25 min drive and it's $8 to get in. There are nature trails to walk and the beach is awesome! There's also an inlet that's crystal clear with no waves. It's like an ocean water pool!

Owner's Response: Kim, thanks for the nice review of our condo. Sorry you had an unpleasant experience with the beach service. They are a private contractor and not actually a part of Celadon. We do however contract through them for our guest. The service we offer our guest through them is two lounge chairs and an umbrella. Not sure exactly what may have triggered the young lady to be rude, but we apologize for the unpleasant experience. There is a trick to getting the chairs of choice and that is to be the first in line Sunday morning. This requires getting up early and waiting for them to start taking names. They normally will not stop set up procedures for name taking and assigning chairs until 8:00. Even we as owners and having a contract with the beach service have to wait and accept what is available. Hope this helps for future stays.

This condo exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything that we were promised and everything we had hoped for. I can't say enough great things about it! We have stayed in lots of Condo's in Panama City and this one by far was the nicest. It was very clean when we arrived and everything we needed was there.

Owners are wonderful to deal with. Gary was quick to respond to questions we had before and during our stay.

The rental process was quick and painless. We loved the keypad entry...we were able to take walks on the beach or swim without having to worry if we had the door key (this might seem small, but it was so much more convenient).

You will not regret booking this place!!! Hoping to come back soon!!

Gary,thanks for the extras-snack basket, cold water in the refrigerator, shampoo, conditioners,soaps, beach toys etc!!!

Owner's Response: Kasia, thanks for taking the time to write a review, it is truly appreciated. Debbie and I try and think of all the little extras to make ones vacation more enjoyable and one to remember. Debbie and I rented condos and hotels for years and never actually felt at home in any, it always seemed as though the owners, realtors, or property managers were only about the money; we’re not about the money, we’re about you finding a great value and having a wonderful vacation. We try our best to have our guest feel not only at home in our condo, but also have the good feeling of communicating directly with the owners rather than some realtor or vacation property manager that could care less about your needs. We find a great deal of pleasure in knowing our guest appreciate our efforts, and knowing you feel safety and security in our second home proves to us that we have accomplished one of our priority goals. We welcome you and your family back anytime. Thanks again for being our guest. Gary & Debbie Payne

Amazing condo!

  • 5 of 5

The views from this condo are amazing! The entire unit was spotless and beautifully decorated. The Paynes' have thought of everything to make their guests feel welcome-from extra beach chairs, beach toys, shampoo, soaps, snack basket, etc. The entire vacation was stress free from booking the condo to checking in and out. We highly recommend the Paynes' and their beautiful condo. We hope to be back next year!!!
