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 Panama City Beach

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!

Quiet and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect size for two adults and my two kids. Of course no balcony made towel drying a bit of a challenge but we managed just fine. Full size fridge was def a plus. Only “cons” I can think of are that the ac unit is very loud especially when it kicks on, the tub drain seemed very slow An would back up on us, the bed sheet (fitted) was a bit uncomfortable but nothing major, WiFi connection was very slow I ended up just turning it off. The PROS: the pool area is clean, the staff was very helpful when I needed them, beach access was great, the guys who handle the beach chairs/umbrella were friendly and helpful. Will def be staying here again in the future. Beaches were not crowded at all, saw tons of dolphins while laying out each day. Vicki was always quick to respond and very easy to book with and this being my 1st Time using a private rental, that was important to me. Would DEF recommend this property!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! I will definitely check the "cons" and try to rectify them. I do have a screen in the tub drain due to a shampoo cap being dropped into drain and clogging it. I will try to find another solution. The sheets will be replaced. If you would like to stay again I would be glad to have you!

Right on the beach and at a great price.

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the condo was great, answered all emails, calls, or texts immediately. The condo was immaculate when we checked in and there was plenty of room for our family of four. It is in a very good location, anywhere we wanted to go was about a 5 minute drive or less. There are plenty of things to do within walking distance like; mini golf, go-karts, slingshot, shopping, clubs, and restaurants. We had a great 4 days and will definitely stay here again. Thank you Vicky, we will call you the next time we go to PCB.

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.
