About Josh Brown - Owner

One night I was playing Brown Eyed Girl on the guitar down at the beach and the next day we found our dream beach house for sale and just knew she was the one so that is what we named her! I told my son you can't skim-board on a stock certificate and we have enjoyed our investment ever since.

We have had so many happy families stay with us over the years. We constantly keep updating the interior and keeping it fresh.

Come stay with us, I guarantee your happiness or your money back! -Josh Brown & Family

Josh Brown - Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why Josh Brown - Owner chose Seagrove Beach

This dune lake area is unique on our planet, only three locations like it in the world. The park service protects so much of the gulf front and sprinkled between the parks are the most beautiful little beach homes and cottages I have ever seen. So many great little restaurants and fun activities for the family to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Our home is so comfortable and quiant and the kitchen, dining and living room area is a great place where everyone congregates as a family. So many wonderful memories are made at Brown Eyed Girl and you will make many of your own!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We love the location! Close to the beach, tucked in behind the Gourd Garden, so very private; and close to Collaborations, one of our favorite stores. The new Publix nearby is great. Summer's Edge and your home are beautiful!"

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I arrived with an agenda to leave ‘life’ behind and that is exactly what happened. The scent of jasmine pleasantly greeted me each time I sat on the front porch to enjoy my morning coffee! I loved the dappled sunshine and the breezes coming off the water. I would highly recommend this proved to be a real winner!!

great value, great location, great beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful inside and out, well decorated, fully stocked, clean, and well maintained. We especially loved the smart TVs in every room, the open dining room/kitchen/living room area, and the upstairs balcony. The small fenced in yard in front was perfect for our small dogs, and the neighborhood was very quaint and everyone was very welcoming.

We visited over the New Years holiday, and even though it was cold, we were still able to enjoy the very picturesque beach. The beach access was clearly marked and easy to find, and just a short walk from the house. There are also plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance.

The owner, Josh, was very responsive, courteous, and accommodating. This rental is perfect for a family vacation. We only hated to leave, and we would definitely stay at this rental again, any time of year.

Owner's Response: Thank you Isaac D. Family! The Smart TV upgrades in all rooms has made our guests happy so they can access their Movie accounts.

Come back soon!!!

A peaceful escape at Brown Eyed Girl in Summers Edge

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and the location is perfect. The home was very clean and beautifully decorated. It had everything we could have needed and staying in this home enhanced our time spent in one of our favorite places. We loved the location of the home in Summers Edge and the convenience to Seaside and surrounding areas along 30A. The homeowners were great to work with and very accommodating. We look forward to visiting again and again.

Owner's Response: Natalie, we look forward to welcoming you back and thank you for your kind review. When our beach home can give your family happiness and memories, especially at Christmas, it makes all the hard work we put into making it perfect worth every minute. We love it too, of course, but we get a lot of joy in sharing Brown Eyed Girl with others who appreciate her as much as we do. Thank you. -The Browns

Fall Break October 2017

  • 5 of 5

We decided at the last minute to take a trip to 30A for Fall Break. We were able to book Brown Eyed Girl and received quick, excellent communication from the owner. We have been to 30A quite a few times, but have never stayed in Seagrove. Suffice to say, this is our new favorite place to stay. Seagrove is a good balance between having things around you to do, having a large beach area that isn't packed in (looking at you Seacrest....) and being convenient to everything.

Brown Eyed Girl was the perfect place to stay. Both of our boys were able to have their own bedroom with a large bed and they loved having their own TVs for the short times we were actually still enough to watch TV. When you first walk in, it is very open with a family room, kitchen and eating area. It was perfect for our group of four, but would also be perfect for a larger group of people staying there. Upstairs, there is a master bedroom with a very comfy king sized bed, large bathroom, sun porch and large walk in closet.

A few of our favorite things:

1. The wagon - when you have kids, you have all kinds of things to take to the beach. Having a wagon included to be able to pile everything into, makes life so much easier.

2. The beds- Sometimes the worst part about travel is not sleeping on a good bed. These beds were some of the most comfortable I have ever slept on.

3. The quiet street - granted, this was the third week of October and there weren't a lot of people there, but the street reminds me of the kind of street you would want your dream house to be on. Very walkable, tree-lined and convenient.

4. The beach- It's a very easy walk to the beach and you DON'T have to cross 30A to get there. The size of the beach was great. We didn't feel packed in. We used the beach chair service on the beach and they were less than other places we have used. For the third week of October, we paid $25 per day for an umbrella and two chairs.

5. The owner-Josh is a fantastic owner to deal with. Great communication and wants to make sure your stay is nothing less than wonderful. Because we booked a two days before our arrival, there was a mix up at the management company about getting the unit cleaned. Ultimately the management company did way more than they needed to to make up for it and Josh was so easy to communicate with.

I hope this review is helpful, just promise me you won't book it during the next time we want to come visit. :)

A special vacation home and locaiton with Brown-Eyed Girl

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose Seagrove over Destin this last spring break 2014 and searched for a house by the beach. Brown-eyed Girl was so special on quaint Ryan street, a couple miles east of Seaside. The house was perfect and so well-designed. Comfortable for our group of two parents and 7 teens and grade schoolers. The sleeping arrangements were so comfortable with roomy beds and bathes upstairs and down. Gathering room and kitchen was so open and accommodating. WiFi, TVs, hardwoods, high-end kitchen and all the comforts of home. The low traffic and 5 minute walk to our two pools made this so safe for our family. The house was well-built and suited for meals and all our comings and goings. Bikes were a great way to travel. Josh, the owner, was pleasant and professional and the rental service so polite and available for questions or needs. We are going back this SPRING! We fell in love with Seagrove and the laid-back and non-commerical vibe. Plus, the house really is good for 10 guests.
