About Debbie Churchey

Originally from Alabama, my husband and kids relocated to Memphis almost 20 years ago. We have been visiting the Destin/hwy 98 area for more than 30 years and have found no beaches prettier nor rich with southern hospitality and relaxing activites. Being on the beach is one of favorite places to be. Give me a 'B'.... a book surrounded by my buddies (family included!) on the beach with a beverage and I am happy, happy, happy.

Debbie Churchey purchased this condo in 2013

Why Debbie Churchey chose Blue Mountain Beach

The gulf coast flaunts some of the prettiest beaches in the world. The only ones that can compare are probably more expensive to get to AND to vacation on. For years the Destin and Panama City areas have been recognized as some of the most popular family vacation destinations because of its beauty but also because shopping, recreational activities and restaurants are plentiful. Highway 30A is located between these 2 'hot spots' but has an even better attraction because it's 17 miles of highway are lined with sidewalks that welcome biking, walking, jogging and easy access from one seaside community to another. Sanctuary by the Sea (SBTS) is located on 30A at the edge of Blue Mountain Beach next to Grayton Beach State Park. Although 30A may be hustling and bustling at times, vacationers will find a since of moderate seclusion at SBTS since they will share 650 feet of gulf front beach on 23 acres with only 81 units of other vacationers. SBTS has plenty of amenities other than the beach to entertain families. This unit is one of only a few that has 2 levels of balconies with views of the ocean, beach, lake and overlooks one of the pools.

What makes this condo unique

The 3200 square feet of living space provides travelers plenty of room to relax but the unit also offers the upscale finishes of plush hotel.

I stay at SBTS every year and this is one of the most beautifully decorated homes we have stayed in - it has the true beach theme which helps you to relax right away. We had rain for half of our visit - it did not matter!! You can just sit on the couch or stay in the bed and watch the beautiful views!! Everything you need was provided. And this location has one of the most beautiful set of dune lakes and beach. I really enjoy walking and you can either walk the beach or the sidewalk - the best walk is to either Blue Mountain Beach Creamery or to La Loba's Bakery :) Debbie was very responsive and there is plenty of room for adults and kids. Can't wait to visit again.

Great Condo for a group!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is awesome! It's a gated community and a really nice facility. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of space in this condo. It's location is great. The condo owner was very prompt and helpful when a small issue arose. We would come back!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is even more beautiful in person! The view is perfect, as we had a good pool view so that our older children could swim as we relaxed on the balcony with an amazing ocean view as well!! Debbie is the sweetest person I've ever rented from, and we will definitely be coming back!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Condo was extremely clean and supplied with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and bedding was very nice as well. Kitchen had everything you would need to make just about anything! We loved the upstairs master bedroom with the outside balcony on the top floor - the stars were awesome. We did have a Tropical Storm to deal with so only got to enjoy that upstairs deck twice but we made the best of the bad weather. Debbie was fantastic to deal with and was very accommodating. The few issues we had I relayed to her and she was already aware and dealing with those issues. I would definitely stay here again because of her hospitality and the ease in booking her property. The condo was comfortable, homey and accommodated our 5 adults and 4 children perfectly. We will be back!
