Ryan Christopher, an Atlanta native, moved to Pensacola Beach in 2003 to open up the Portofino Island Resort as the first General Manager for the property. In 2007, Ryan joined Wyndham Destinations and currently serves as the Executive General Manager for the Western Region of the Panhandle of Florida, which includes the coastline between Ft. Walton Beach and Perdido Key. In this role, Ryan is responsible for property management and vacation rental operations for 750 homes and condominiums. Ryan also is a licensed real estate agent and community association manager (CAM).
In 2017, Ryan became the owner of Lazy Days Beach Rentals, which offers beachfront adventures and experiences from Panama City Beach to Pensacola Beach. Lazy Days provides a “barefoot concierge” service to visitors including beach chair/umbrella rentals, sailboats, watersport rentals, activity tours, and also offer beach wheelchairs so that everyone can enjoy these beautiful white beaches.
Ryan studied finance and hospitality administration at FSU and loves making road trips for football games in the fall. When not working, Ryan enjoys spending time and traveling the world with his beautiful wife Maria, and their 2 children Noa and Koa, who both got their passports before they could walk. They are currently planning a gap year trek to explore each continent (besides Antartica) over the course of 2 years. Ryan hopes to find plenty of surf breaks along the way.
