Grand Welcome of Panama City Beach is locally owned and operated by U.S Army Veteran Steve Lovelace. Originally from Virginia, Steve attended college at Virginia Tech and Radford University with a major in Education. After graduating, Steve served 10 years in the U.S. Army as a UH-60 Blackhawk Helicopter pilot. After serving abroad across Southeast Asia, and most of Europe, Steve developed a love and passion for traveling.
After staying in various short-term rentals across the world, he knew it was an opportunity he wanted to pursue after leaving the military. He is most excited about meeting people from all walks of life, offering an unmatched vacation experience to customers, and working as a part of an innovative and forward-thinking team. He believes that Panama City Beach has unparalleled beaches and seemingly limitless potential for short-term rentals and is excited to grow Grand Welcome as a staple of the local community.
