About Julie Rayburn

Hi, we are Julie Rayburn and Jyll Gandy. We purchased this beach house as a partnership. We both love the area and have wanted to do this for a long time, the opportunity was right so we purchased this beach house and would like to share it with you. Julie is from Georgia where she lives with her family, and Jyll lives in Tallahassee, but also spends lots of time in Port St Joe where she has a home. We both try to get to the beach as much as we can, we consider this our second home so we ask that if you rent it, please take care of it. This is our get-a-away when we can get there, our home away from home. This area of Florida is one of the best kept secrets ever. The forgotten coast.

We have two Pit Bulls, Diesel and Yeti, they travel to the Beach with us most of the time. I also have a Boxer named Sadie. Jyll has a Jack Russell who also loves the beach. Our family loves the pet friendly beaches, especially this one!~ Julie

You won't find much fast food here or any high rise buildings, there aren't even many hotels. What you will find is the good life, good people, new friends and hopefully you will return again and again. This is what they call 'Old Florida', or the Forgotten Coast', but we hope you won't forget it.

We love it here and hope you will too.

Julie Rayburn purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Rayburn chose Florida Main North West

We are on beach time! The area is not too fast paced. The beaches and sites are beautiful. Depending on which area of the beach you want to go to you can see many things, the wildlife and lots of scenery. We love the restaurants in the area and so will you.

What makes this house unique

Our screened front porch that is great for morning coffee or evening gatherings. The beach is nice for long walks or lazy sunny days on the beach. Sometimes on the beach you will only see a hand full of people, sometimes you will see a few more, depending on the season. There is great fishing from the beach or from one of the local fishing guides. You can dine in, grill your catch of the day, dine in one of the local restaurants nearby. There are many fantastic places around to eat. Try them all, we are not too far from Mexico Beach, Panama City or Apalachicola.

Beautiful home and beautiful ocean!

Two crazy beaches was an awesome vacation home! Very spacious, and kitchen has everything you could need. They also allowed us to bring our pets, which is always a plus! Walk to the beach was only about 3 minutes. The furniture in the house is new and nice as well. Great home on the best beach of the Florida coast!

Charming little place

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much. We had a small issue when we first arrived, but it was taken care of quickly. Only complaint is that traffic can be a bit loud, on the deck.

Excellent! Plenty of space and very home-y!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at 2 Crazy Beaches! Everything was very clean and neat. The beds were super comfy which is always a plus. My 3 year old enjoyed the loft, even though she never slept up there (hehe). But there were games and toys for her to play with while we got ready. I would definitely come back and stay here again! We absolutely loved it!

The place was more than we expected. It was very home like. It was a bit of a trek to the beach, but overall it was worth it. I stayed with my best friend from high school and we had lots to catch up on, so the house made it comfortable to do so. It's a great place to take a family to.
