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!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Aquarius for Fall break. We had never stayed in the "Grove by the Sea" neighborhood before, but we will be staying there again. Very nice clean and quiet neighborhood. Our house was absolutely perfect. Great family area and game room om first floor. Also has very nice private screened in porch. All bedrooms are upstairs and the beds are very comfortable after a day at the beach. Very clean and modern house. We loved it!! The owner was very helpful and always answered questions quickly. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience. One suggestion, we rented a golf cart and it was well worth it. Not only for drive to seaside, but the beach is a bit of a walk, but only a quick 5 minute ride

Great Place.

We had a wonderful week at Aquarius. It didn't hurt that every day happened to be a perfect "ten." Especially enjoyed the back screened in porch where we enjoyed dinner every night.

We had such a wonderful time during our stay at Aquarius. It was perfect for our family. The house is well appointed, the pool is right across the street, and the neighborhood is wonderful. We can't wait to come back!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer staying in this neighborhood, but this has been my favorite house we have booked so far! It was extremely clean upon arrival. The house is not only very well equipped with your everyday needs, but is equipped with high quality products. The layout of the house is perfect for a family like ours who has a toddler and a "tween." The den located off of the living room was perfect for my son who was able to feel like he had his own little man cave. The master bedroom has an office/nursery area which was very convenient. I will definitely book the house again for our next beach vacation!

Great vacation, beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in Grove-by-the-Sea and the neighborhood is quiet, private and the beach across the street is not crowded in comparison to nearby beaches. Last year we stayed in a different house, but this year we choose Aquarius and we were very happy with our choice! The house is immaculate, had everything we needed and the furnishings are simply gorgeous. The house was perfect for our family of 4, the kids really enjoyed the bunk bed room and the den off the main living room, stocked with games and an Xbox. The house is also steps away from the north pool which is great after a long day at the beach. We can't wait to stay here again!
