About Diana Tibbs

My husband and I met at the Half Ironman in Panama City and love the atmosphere of the Gulf Coast. We are now a busy family with 4 small children. We love being at the beach as well as biking and running down the amazing paved trail on 30A.

Diana Tibbs purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Diana Tibbs chose Inlet Beach

Now that we have 4 young children, we wanted a place where we could spend time with our family and make memories. Inlet Beach Retreat gives the adults the tranquility we need with great views and the sound of the ocean while also providing a wonderful getaway for our kids and dog - a short walk to the beach and the best part is NO stairs for the kids to climb or descend and NO roads to cross to enjoy the beach!

What makes this townhome unique

This home has something for everyone - gourmet kitchen for the chef, amazing layout for extended family or friends, game room, private pool, spa, and XBOX 360 with Kinect for the kids. The home is less than a mile from Rosemary Beach

A beautiful high-end house, meticulously maintained within minutes walk to beach & a private pool!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th trip to 30-A & we’ve stayed in some awesome beach front homes, but this house had a better layout than any by far! It was perfect for 3 families with teens. Everyone had their own space, but a wonderful gathering space for everyone on the 3rd floor. The teens/kids also loved “their” space on the first floor with its own kitchen, air hockey, ping-pong & gaming systems. The house & pool area was all beautifully done & no expense was spared—hands-down the best equipped house we’ve ever stayed. All this within an easy 2-3 minute walk to the non-crowded beach & a quick bike ride to a Rosemary & Seacrest! We also greatly appreciate that this home is dog friendly—it’s very challenging to find a high end home, with Gulf views & a pool, that allows you to bring your furry family member! On top of all this, the owner (Diana Tibbs) could not have been more accommodating & helpful! She & her family live nearby, so she was able to respond immediately when we had questions—she even ran over an air pump when we got a flat tire on the kayak carrier! I would ABSOLUTELY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this home—we will definitely be returning! Thank-you!!

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great home to enjoy. Away from the crowds, yet close to any shopping. Pool to lounge in after enjoying the beach. Beach!! Right down the street, and wonderful view of the water from several locations in the house. Very relaxing! Knees not working like they use to??? Don't let 3 floors bother you, take the elevator.

Bring your Bikes or hop over to Rosemary Beach and rent one. Don't forget to try The Donut House! The Best Pastries. Many fun eateries near Inlet Beach. Don't forget your sunscreen!

Beautiful house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We visited Inlet Beach for spring beach and loved it! The house is absolutely beautiful and the location is perfect. Just a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. The house had everything we needed (5 adults, 2 children) and we had plenty of space. It's quite large and would comfortably house much more people than we had. The pool and spa are great too. Our kids loved the air hockey table, so fun! It was wonderful to have the beach cart, chairs and toys as well. So nice to not have to rent or bring those from home. The only thing we forgot was a little step stool for our toddlers to reach the sink. I'm only putting this in here (because I don't expect the owners to have this) is to remind another family if they need one, because I didn't even think about it, but we have them at home for our kids to reach the sink. I will bring them next time! Diana was wonderful to work with and answered any question we had very quickly. We really didn't need anything though, the house is fully stocked and so nice. They have so many towels too (bath and beach) which is really nice because some rental homes really skimp on towels for some reason. This one did not! Wonderful home and we hope to be back next spring break! Thanks for the lovely time!

Restful, Quiet Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family (6 adults and 3 kids) stayed at this property July 24th-28th, 2017. The booking process was super easy, and the owner (Diana Tibbs) was very responsive to all of my questions. I don’t think that I waited more than a few hours for a reply to any inquiry…even when she was on vacation with her family she replied right away. Now that was exemplary customer service.

There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own suite in the house. My teenage nephew liked having his own studio apartment on the ground floor. All of us could be together in the living area or by the pool, but not feel like we were on top of each other. We enjoyed just hanging out in our own individual spaces when we wanted some down time.

The house is very tastefully furnished and included every household item that you could need (or want). There was no shortage of anything. The house was clean, well maintained, and ready for us when we arrived.

We rented the paddle board from the owners and had to contact them a couple of times with questions. Shawn (Diana’s husband) was quick to respond and brought a missing item for the paddle board right over to us.

Beach access is so convenient. You just go out the back gate, turn left, and walk a short distance to the Inlet Beach access. There was no busy road to cross or stairs to climb. The route was all flat-five minutes tops from the gate to the water.

Rosemary Village Center is a short bike ride away. While it was nice to be near, it was better to be far enough away to enjoy the amenities but not have the crowds, traffic, and noise.

There was nothing stressful about this vacation at all…which was just what we needed. I would highly recommend this property for an enjoyable, relaxing stay at the beach.
