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 manygreat winters in the home.

Kevin Kent and Joanna Rycroft purchased this house in 2011

Why Kevin Kent and Joanna Rycroft chose Panama City Beach

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'.

Great location and access to the beach

Beautiful beaches and close to the park. Morning walks are amazing! House is in really close to the beach, keep your windows and doors open you can hear the waves.

Easy and quiet access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Joanna and Kevin were so wonderful!

They had contacted us beforehand to check and see if we didn't mind the A/C men coming one morning during our stay because they had already set the appointment before we booked. We didn't mind at all and they offered to change the date as well. We had planned to be out majority of the time so we gave them the go ahead. :) Kevin stayed there to make sure everything went smoothly and even gave us a bottle of wine for the interruption.

They were so sweet and waited outside to greet us when we arrived. We arrived a little before check in and they gladly let us in early. :) Kevin and Joanna were so helpful with recommendations of places to eat and where to take our dogs.

Location, location, location....fabulous! Their place is directly across from the beach access point. The street was quiet and the beach was not overcrowded. We enjoyed walking the beach during the day and evenings. Easy walk to schooners and such a pretty view.

The duplex was very spacious and had plenty of seating and room. So cute! They checked in with us if we passed by and made sure we had everything we needed. Seriously, so sweet! We already want to plan another trip.

Thank you Joanna and Kevin!

Perfect Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our three children here for our summer vacation. The experience was everything we hoped for and more! The location is great - just a few steps from the beach and three restaurants, a gas station, and a beach shop all within a 5 minute or less walk. Joanna was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed. The transition in and out was seamless and the house had everything you need for a family of 5! When - not if - we come back, we hope Joanna's house will be available! This was the perfect example of a Home Away from home. Thanks to Joanna and Kevin for having us - our vacation was far more than we could have dreamed because of them!
