About Douglas Wells

Hello! We are Doug and Jill Wells, the owners of 'Aquarius.' We are residents of Atlanta, Georgia, and enjoy spending as much time as possible with our 30-A friends at the beach. Jill works for a telecommunications company and Doug is retired.

Douglas Wells purchased this house in 2012

Why Douglas Wells chose Beaches of South Walton

We have enjoyed vacationing in the 'Grove' and surrounding Seagrove Beach neighborhoods for the last twenty five years and have always been on the lookout for the 'special' beach house for our own. Our dreams were answered in September of 2012 with the purchase of 'Aquarius,' a reference to both Jill's birth sign and her life-long love of the beach and water. We have spent much time and effort readying the house for the rental market and we're pleased you've taken a few minutes to review our listing.

What makes this house unique

The house two lovely, large porches,the back porch is screened and very private and the front porch has a great swing - perfect place to have that first cup of coffee. A perfect, relaxing get away!

Excellent place to rent

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house is pretty, very comfortable and functional.

We enjoyed its location: close to the pool, short walk to the beach and proximity to Seaside restaurants.

The owner goes above and beyond to take good care of renters.

We recommend not only the house but also the neighborhood, beach and area. Owner is excellent too.

Perfect location for our active family of 6!

  • 5 of 5

Pool and tennis courts were less than 50 yards away. Beach was a very pleasant 10 minute walk through the Grove neighborhood which is tree-lined and shady. Beach access is directly across 30A. House is beautiful and immaculate! Enjoyed the oversized chairs and swing on front porch and screened-in back porch. Highly recommend Aquarius.

Aquarius is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Aquarius is awesome! Everything about the property exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful, functional, and close to the beach. Doug was great to work with, and really wanted us to have a good time. The Grove by the Sea neighborhood is a wonderful community and added a lot to our vacation experience with its swimming pools and tennis court. I would recommend this property to anyone who is not planning on going to the beach the same week we are, because if we go back to Sea Grove, we are going to stay here!
