About Kevin Kent and Joanna Rycroft

Retail Clothing business owners from Canada, we have spent many years vacationing across the Southern United States and Caribbean. In search for a more permanent oasis, we discovered this property while vacationing in Panama City Beach, and have enjoyed two great winters in the home.

Kevin Kent and Joanna Rycroft purchased this house in 2011

Why Kevin Kent and Joanna Rycroft chose Florida North West

We fell in love with this place the moment we viewed the Gulf from the balcony. It's so close to entertainment on excursion, while so relaxing when 'staying in', that it really offers a lot for a vacation spot.

What makes this house unique

Lots of Parking, lots of room for hosting, great views and across from a stellar beach.

The Beach contains an abundance of shells, that offers a truly unique and quantifying 'Shelling Experience'.

Our stay here was fantastic! The home was well kept and had everything we needed. It is located right across from the beautiful white sandy beach and in a residential area that was quiet and friendly. It is a great location for families and pet owners for daily walks. Joanna was great to work with!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Owner great to work with. Kept in touch to be sure everything was going well. The location was fantastic, a very short walk to the beach. Close to stores and restaurants. I was able to easily walk my dog. The bathroom shower was awesome as was the rest of the house. Thank you for a great place to stay.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this rental was great. Beach entrance was across the street. The house had more than enough space for 5 of us. The house had everything we needed. The owners were very nice in following up after we arrived. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, cute and comfortable home!

  • 4 of 5

We were able to check into the property early and our stay was wonderful. We had 3 nice size bedrooms with lots of closet space. The location was great as we had friends staying down the street and a 2 great restaurants nearby. Right across from the beach :)

We had a little trouble with using the TV's so it might be nice to ask for a manual or instructions before your trip.

My only issues weren't with this home at all but actually from VRBO. This particular home is owned by a couple who are international. So on top of the $100 booking fee charged by VRBO, I was charged another $55 from my bank in international usage charges. I contacted my bank who suggested i contact VRBO who suggested i contact the owner. Multiple emails to VRBO later and the issue was not resolved. I'd suggest booking through Paypal unless your bank doesn't charge those fees.

Beautiful and cozy home just steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great experience with this home. The place is cozy and feels like home. Comfortable beds and everything you need to cook dinner, or you have plenty of restaurants just minutes away. Perfect location on a quiet street just steps away from the sugar sand beach. I would recommend this place to my family and would love to come back and stay very soon

Well be back next year for sure. Thanks, Joanne and Kathy for all your help. The Partin family from Tuscaloosa, AL
