About Vicky Rybik

I am from Columbus GA and attended Columbus State University. I currently live in Panama City Beach.

Vicky Rybik purchased this condo in 2011

Why Vicky Rybik chose Florida North West

I have vacationed in Panama City Beach with family since I was 8 yrs old. I have always had the dream to 'live at the beach'! In 2011 I came down for a long wkend and stayed here at Top of the Gulf in a friends condo. This location and atmosphere was so relaxing and enjoyable, one of the best times ever spent here! I had the opportunity to purchase 2 condos in the fall of 2011 and have since relocated here. You just can't beat the beach, water and entertainment in this location. Everything is so convenient!

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this place because of the beautiful views of the beach and gulf. The Resort is great because it is not to large and therefore more comfortable, laid back feeling. The atmosphere is so relaxing, even when the weather is bad. My condos are comfortable and cozy. It's like being on vacation everyday!

Room Had Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room had perfect amenities and enough room for us to spread out. We had a great stay and will use this condo again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for myself and my kids. The first night after returning there was a little white crab. Other than that it was great loved the walk in closet. The staff were very friendly. Will return again.

To many Rules. Arm bands suck,, had to wear them the whole time and the beds were uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: This is just unfortunate. I truly go above and beyond to make sure my guests have an enjoyable vacation. As for the rules and the wristbands I have no control over, even as an owner I have to wear a wristband, have a parking pass and follow the rules. The rules are in place to make sure you have a safe, secure and wonderful vacation as we want you to return. As for the beds being uncomfortable, all I can say is I will spend a few nights in this condo when available and assess the mattresses. I've only had favorable comments about the beds, so thank you for bringing this to my attention. Have a great rest of the year!

Really enjoyed the stay here. Room is exactly as shown, Mrs. Rybik was a pleasure to deal with as usual, we have stayed in both of her rooms now and have had no issues with either room! We plan on returning next year as well!

At first I was very skeptical of this stay because we had to bring more than one vehicle down to the condo and we were worried because it was not listed in the description about parking, however they have plenty of parking for multiple vehicles. We ran into some issues into the room when we arrived and we contacted Vicky and she fixed our problems within a matter of minutes! After that the rest of the vacation of simply that...A VACATION. We literally had nothing to worry about, everything was so great!! Would definitely stay again!
