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'.

The location could not be better, less than a minute to the sand, and the house is very inviting with all you need. Very clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The property owners are very accommodating and a joy to work with, always responds and keeps in touch. Our family was blessed with a wonderful relaxing vacation, would recommend this rental to anyone wishing to visit Panama City, you couldn't find a better place!!

Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this property. The location was excellent for the beach, marina, St. Andrews Park, and restaurants. The owner was a pleasure to work with and the property was well maintained. The neighborhood had minimal traffic which made it nice for walking our dogs. The porch also provided a good space for our dogs to safely explore while we listened to the waves.

I loved everything about this place. It was clean. Every little detail was thought of. It had good towels, the sheets were amazing and the bed were comfy. Everything worked well. It was close to everything but in a quiet area. The beach was way closer than I thought it would be since we had to cross the street. I can never tell just from pictures. We were there in less than a minute. And there was little to no traffic to worry about. I was a little nervous about being on the top floor with 4 kids but the neighbors under us couldn't hear us and we couldn't hear them either. We chatted with them to make sure. I definitely want to stay here again.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Gulf View Estates! You simply cross the road to the beach access. The duplex was large enough for 3 adults, one child, and two dogs. Never had a problem with space. The house is really clean and kept up to date. There is hotel or condo building beside the beach access, but it poses no problem. Most residents of building use the front access to get to the beach. We will definitely visit again!!! FYI on the other side of the hotel you can rent chairs with umbrellas. The ones to rent have blue umbrellas. You can rent these for multiple days, which I would do. That way you can keep the front row.

Great location and nice home

  • 5 of 5

Location was fantastic. Steps to the beach, minutes from stores and no traffic. Beach was relatively empty for July since there is only 1 large condo nearby. Just veer to the left of the beach access and it was empty.
