About April Lickovitch

Originally from Ohio and Minnesota, we now reside in Alpharetta, Georgia with our three young boys.

April Lickovitch purchased this house in 2012

Why April Lickovitch chose Panama City Beach

On our first visit to 30A, we fell in love with the area and knew someday we would want to buy a home here. The white sand beaches and clear, turquoise water reminded us of vacationing in the Caribbean. The kids love the many ice cream shops and bike paths. And the artsy, quaint, eclectic arcitecture of the towns along 30A make us feel like we are in another world. We hope we can share our love of the area with you, by creating a home for you to enjoy that is luxurious, comfortable and fun for kids.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home, because we found it to have a unique setting for Seacrest Beach. We just love how this home is tucked on a small side street, with a private, wooded front yard that overlooks a bike path. And, the home borders Rosemary Beach, so we are just a hop-skip-and-a-jump to some of our favorite Rosemary eateries around the corner!

A beautiful, peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Sunshine Shack, and April was especially helpful in working through some details with me at the last minute. The home is beautiful, and our family had a wonderful week. Our favorites were meals around the big dining table and swinging on the back porch. All four of our kids, ages 16 to 2, wanted to sleep together in the bunk room even though there were two bedrooms to spare. Such a fun week for our family. We hope to stay there again!

Wonderful House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at the Sunshine Shack! This beautifully decorated house is very conveniently located within walking distance to the pool and the Seacrest restaurants/shops. We also used the tram to go over the ocean several times without any issues. The bikes that are included with the house made it easy to bike to Rosemary and Alys Beach. Everything you could possibly need is included with the house, and the toy box was an especially huge hit with the 2 and 4 year olds that were with us. We had one small issue with the A/C upon arrival, but a phone call to Noel resulted in someone at the house within 15 minutes and the issue fixed immediately. April was great to work with and we can not wait for our next trip to the Sunshine Shack! I highly recommend staying at the Sunshine Shack.

Great rental super clean and equipped with every detail.

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay at the Sunshine Shack again. In fact I don't think I would consider staying anywhere else in the Rosemary area. It is a great value. We ended up getting an extra family which took our party up to 7. Everyone had a very comfortable bed (good thread count) and great bathroom situation. Thanks to the Lickovitches for sharing this great place. BTW, our three adult children grew up going to and are still counsellors at Camp High Harbor. They are at Allatoona. It has been a great experience for our family. Glad to make the connection.

Best regards,

Tina and Jim Caudle

Spacious, lovely home in Seacrest

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Seacrest and the 30A area. Our family had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Sunshine Shack. It was clean, spacious and stocked with everything we needed for the week. My first impression when we walked in was that everything felt bigger about the house than I imagined. Our teenagers enjoyed the bikes and having their own space. We utilized the grill and outdoor space which felt very private. I really enjoyed being able to walk everywhere ... the beach is very walkable from the home, but we also took advantage of the pick up service when bringing chairs and umbrella to or from the beach. We were walking distance to many restaurants and also took short drives to visit some of the neighboring communities and state parks.

This was our first experience with VRBO and April was great to work with! She is very responsive, and I can tell she truly cares about her renters experience. I would highly recommend Sunshine Shack for families!

Great, clean and comfortable house for two families with six kids under 7!

  • 5 of 5


Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us, it was our first time to the area and we had a blast. The weather was OK but we still had fun riding bikes and playing in the sand. The only complaint about the house we already spoke about... the internet in the area is not awesome but I guess it is vacation so you shouldn't be trying to work anyway!

Thanks again and we look forward to our next visit.
