About Vicky Rybik

I'm a Georgia native that had always vacationed in Panama City Beach with my family since I was 8 years old. I was so fortunate 5 years ago to be able to move to one of my favorite places in the world! I have visited many beaches over the years from Hawaii to Dominican Republic and can truly say we have the most beautiful beaches! While these other places have good qualities, I'm still partial to my beach! I have 2 condos I rent out, but I also work full time as an RN. I enjoy jet skiing and visiting shell island to add to my seashell collection!

Vicky Rybik purchased this condo in 2011

Why Vicky Rybik chose Panama City Beach

Awesome view of the beach/gulf! I lived in this condo for approximately 3 years and enjoyed every minute of this beautiful view! The condo is cozy and comfortable! Not to fancy, just a nice, clean relaxing place to stay. I try to make it a home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

The view of the Gulf of Mexico with its emerald colored water and the beautiful white sand beaches truly makes this a great vacation destination!

Wouldn't recommend to a friend

  • 1 of 5

No wifi. Cigarette butts in the hall. Elevators were out of order most of the time, only had 2 and as soon as the one got fixed the other one was out. Strict about not wearing the given plastic band for the week we stayed, no visitors allowed. We were in Panama for our 12 yrs olds travel team, we couldn't have one of his friends come over to hang out. As soon as we opened the vertical blinds one fell off. We actually left our vacation early. 2 adults and 3 kids and the first one to shower got the hot water all others did not. One roll of toilet paper was given for use, toilet paper was for sale downstairs in the business office one roll for $2.00. The quilted comforter on the beds were stained and dirty, obviously aren't washed between being rented out. The best thing about this place was the fireworks.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. I am very upset over this review and I just wish you would've contacted me first. I will address each issue you had problems with. First of all I sent you approx. 4 emails on June 16, 2017 with all the condo info, rules, and regulations to include: visitors policy, parking pass and wristbands, door code, wifi name and wifi passcode. The emails also included that if you have any issues to please notify me immediately. 1)The only thing you contacted me about was the blind being broken. Which I would have gladly replaced if you requested it. 2) If you wanted more than one roll of toilet paper I would have gladly gotten that for you also. 3) If you would have notified me about the comforters being stained. They would have been replaced, as I always keep a clean set of comforters available. Cleaners do check comforters after each stay. My comforters are changed out often, most times after each guest stay. 4) There is wifi in the condo and I provided you with wifi info in one of the emails. 5) You are the first to have issues with the shower and hot water, it could be the temp on the water heater is turned down so as to prevent scalding. I will definitely have someone check this for me. As to the issues with the resort in general. Your stay was during 4th of July holiday which is the busiest time of the season. 1) Wristbands are required to let security know you are suppose to be on the property and keeps those not allowed off the property for your security and enjoyment of the amenities you paid for. 2) There are 199 condos and if everyone had a visitor, that would take away from your enjoyment of something you and other guests paid for. 3) The elevators like everything else are pushed to limits during peak season. There can be any number of causes for them to have problems. If visitors were allowed, this would put even more of a load on them. 4) There are designated smoking areas, but it is hard to control what others do. We have a great CAM who works tirelessly to make sure our guests are happy. As owners we work really hard to make sure your stay is enjoyable because we want you to come back. I live 5 minutes away from the condos and I'm very reachable and responsive to my guests needs.

Car: recommended

Top Of The Gulf Resort is located on Thomas Dr. in beautiful Panama City Beach, FL. We are located beachside, so no crossing the street to get to the beach! We are near many restaurants and local attractions that are walking distance from the condo. This condo has one of the best beach/gulf views you could ask for!
