About Debbie G

Property owners since 2010

Permanent residence in Atlanta and love the quick 5 jour drive to vacation here!

Debbie G purchased this house in 2014

Why Debbie G chose South Walton

We have visited and vacationed in this family friendly community for over 20 years. We love our home away from home and we know that you will love it also!! Great access to restaurants, shopping, and lots of family entertainment. We are steps from deeded beach access to the emerald green waters and white sandy beach!

We are from Atlanta and love to visit for family vacations and Romantic and Rejuvenating getaways anytime of the year!! This gem is our home away from home and we love to share our special find with others. The community is extremely warm and always welcoming. The beach is gorgeous and such a wonderful place to truly take time and get away from it all. We vacation often in the Carribean and the warmth and clarity of the water in the Spring and Summer made us fall in love with the area!! We have also found out how wonderful it is to spend time here any time of year.

What makes this house unique

Our home is comfortable, cozy and just like home! Our large, open floor plan is conducive to family living, entertainment and allows the sun in especially from our third floor view room. One block north of Scenic 30A!

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week staying in Windows By The Sea! It is a beautiful, spacious home and we loved dining together and spending time together on the porches. The shuttle is very convenient, but we didn't use it much because the walk to the beach is pretty short and easy.

The owner is great to work with and was very responsive to all of our questions. Our only complaint is that the love seat sleeper in one of the bedrooms is not very comfortable, especially for an adult. All in all, it was a wonderful place to spend a week with all of our grown kids and to celebrate the engagement of one of them! We would definitely stay there again! Thank you, Debbie!!

Great house. Responsive owner. Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

There were glitches, like no working ice maker, not enough towels, but owner responded immediately and rectified all situations.

House is gorgeous and the configuration perfectly suited our needs. We used every available bed space. The loft sofa sleeper is a double and could have used a topper like memory foam to make it comfortable. My sister said the blow up matress was the best she's ever slept on..it's the auto blow up with legs.

The beach was crowded so I appreciated having a screw in umbrella that I could take to a less crowded patch on the far right.

I like quality and this house is it. And it's only a short walk to the pool.

Book this, you won't be sorry.

Beautiful vacation Home!! 5 Stars ***** I strongly recommend it and would stay there again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at your home. The property is in a beautiful community that is very close to the beach and the huge swimming pool. There are restaurants, stores, coffee shops, donuts store, ice-cream shops and more all within walking or biking distance.

The kids loved the 3rd floor and they felt that they had their own apartment. There was cable TV in all the rooms with STARZ and HBO in the main family room and master bedroom. Plenty of air-condition and hot water. Really enjoyed having an outdoor shower and the dual shower in the master bedroom. The downstairs bedroom was perfect for my mother-in-law who is 89 as it connected to a full bathroom and had its own deck.

A few suggestions: Change the options on the wireless route not to keep forcing you off after a short time period. This was really annoying and was a problem for my mother in-law since didn’t understand why I had to keep signing her back on. If you replace the barbecue in the future you may want to consider a natural gas unit so that the guest don’t run out of fuel. The bicycles need maintenance. The handle bars were loose on two of the bikes and required an Allen wrench to tighten it. The air pump connector was broken and could not be used to fill the 3rd bike with air. You may want to change the clamp on the seats to a lever type so that the guest could adjust the height of the seat without tools.

Olive Branch, Ms.

We love Windows By The Sea!

  • 5 of 5

An all around fantastic vacation. Windows By The Sea is a beautiful home. We had 2 families on our trip together and the house was perfect, plenty of room to spread out and make ourselves at home. They had everything we needed and more. The walk to the beach is a short walk that I enjoyed daily(a shuttle is offered if needed). The beaches are perfect! The community pool is even closer. I love the location right in between Ayls Beach and Rosemary Beach. Seacrest also has many things going on (concerts, restaurants, shopping, ice-cream, etc) that kept us all happy. I highly recommend this lovely vacation home. We can't wait to plan our next one! Thank you for the great memories!!

Beautiful, modern, comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

This home did not disappoint. Just as lovely as the pictures show. Very comfortable bedding and the sofa in the family room was a favorite spot. Convenient to pool but away from the noise of the pool. Quiet street with very little traffic but very near front of neighborhood. This is my 3rd summer to stay at Seacrest. The property manager is a great guy and made it known he was available anytime if needed. My only disappointment with this trip has nothing to do with the property. We were disappointed with the beach access for those staying at Seacrest. Years ago you had much more beach space available. Now, however, they have the designated beach space roped/marked off and it was extremely crowded, especially with all the chair and umbrella setups. Enjoyed the use of the bikes and riding to the donut truck to get donuts. Overall, a very pleasant trip.

Lovely Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated and located near restaurants. The kitchen was fully stocked with all cooking utensils. The owner added extra welcoming touches to the home like bath products (shampoo, lotion and soap), and dishwasher and laundry detergent. The weather was cool and rainy during our week there but we loved the remote-start gas logs that made the home warm and cozy while playing a game of Apples to Apples with the children.

This is a wonderful, quaint, family friendly beach destination community approximately 5 hours from Atlanta by car and 1 hour by plane, an easy drive from Tennessee and many surrounding areas. It is a walkable and bikeable community on Scenic 30A with lots of cool restaurants, shopping. Our home is one row into the subdivision and is a quick walk to the beach or the pool. It's a wonderful quick get-a-way for family and friends that is on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida. It's perfect any time of year for Spring Break, Summer Vacation, Fall or Winter relaxing retreat, or Holiday Home.
