About Debbie G

Property owners since 2010

Permanent residence in Atlanta and love the quick 5 hour drive to our vacation spot!

We have vacationed here over the past 23 years and it has stayed our wonderful HAPPY PLACE.

Debbie G purchased this house in 2014

Why Debbie G chose Seacrest Beach

We have visited and vacationed in this family friendly community for over 20 years. We love our home away from home and we know that you will love it also!! Great access to restaurants, shopping, and lots of family entertainment. We are steps from deeded beach access to the emerald green waters and white sandy beach!

We are from Atlanta and love to visit for family vacations and Romantic and Rejuvenating getaways anytime of the year!! This gem is our home away from home and we love to share our special find with others. The community is extremely warm and always welcoming. The beach is gorgeous and such a wonderful place to truly take time and get away from it all. We vacation often in the Carribean and the warmth and clarity of the water in the Spring and Summer made us fall in love with the area!! We have also found out how wonderful it is to spend time here any time of year.

What makes this house unique

Our home is comfortable, cozy and just like home! Our large, open floor plan is conducive to family living, entertainment and allows the sun in especially from our third floor view room. One block north of Scenic 30A!

We had the perfect vacation! Windows by the Sea was such a beautiful home. I felt like I was at home. It was so clean and so bright and had everything we could ever wish for. The attention to detail in the home was superb! The artwork and the decor really made me feel like I was on a dream vacation at the beach.... and I was! :) The kids had an absolute blast. The home is very kid friendly and has so much room for everyone to move about. I will definitely be back. We had the perfect summer vacation.

Wonderful stay at "Windows by the Sea"

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to be able to stay in “Windows by the Sea” for the last 3 ½ weeks. Debbie and Art, the owners of the house are very gracious and kind, also very prompt at responding to any questions you might have. The house truly has everything you would need for a wonderful stay. The first time we stayed there (summer of 2015) we had a total of 12 people (7 adults and 5 children) and had plenty of room. This last stay it was just my husband and I - a retirement get-away.

We love that the family room and kitchen are so open to each other. Whoever is in the kitchen prepping food feels included with what is going on in the family room. The house has spacious decking on each level with furniture to sit out on and visit, have a glass of wine, take a nap, read a book, etc.. There are six (6) bikes, which was one of our favorite things to do, take a bike ride to Rose Mary Beach, get an ice cream cone at the Sugar Shak, ride to Charlie’s Donut Truck in Aly’s Beach, ride to the HUB and shops or just ride around the Seacrest neighborhood. We love it all!

There are beach chairs and beach toys at the house and it is a short walk to the beach, or you can take the tram during the Spring, Summer, and Fall. The Seacrest pool, which is the largest pool we have ever seen, is a short walk from the house.

You would be very happy renting this home as you can tell, we were. Thank you Debbie and Art.

Great family vacation, friendly and helpful owners and well-equipped home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with three generations of our family. This is a beautiful, well-equipped house in a great location. Close to both the beach and the huge lagoon pool. Spacious bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen and relaxing porches. The owner is very helpful - both with the booking process and during the stay, responsive to any queries we might have.

Amazing home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with my family of 5 & my sister's family of 4. The home was perfect for our little ones... with plenty of space for the kids to play and for the grown-ups to hang out after we put the young children to sleep without having to worry about our laughter waking them up. Since this is a 3-story home, there are a lot of stairs, but we have stairs at home, so it wasn't a problem with our toddlers. The huge pool is a short walk from the house. Large golf carts will take you to the beach with a wait of no more than 10 minutes when you call. The Seacrest town center is a short walk where you can eat out, pick up donuts for breakfast, shop for souvenirs, grab dessert or rent bikes for the whole family. We hope to make this an annual vacation.

Our home away from home for the 4th of July!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. It was close to the pool and our tram stop was either A-1 or A-1, which is right at the front of Seacrest. My mother had the downstairs bathroom, which she loved and felt very comfortable in. My husband and I had the master bedroom, which was amazingly comfortable. The bathroom is exquisite!!! My brother slept in the in the bunk room, and he found it to be comfortable too. Across the hall was a bedroom where my teen daughter and her friend slept very well and they both loved the accommodations, including the spacious bathroom. Upstairs, is where my son and his friend slept only because the couch wasn't a place where anyone could sleep because the springs on the foldout couch were able to be felt all over your body. We ended up purchasing a blow up mattress, which is where one of the boys slept while the other slept on the couch just not as a bed. It remained folded up and he slept just fine like that. I did inform the owner about the couch upstairs, and I have no doubt she will be replacing this couch or making other arrangements as she said she takes feedback to heart and acts upon the recommendations. She was very helpful throughout our stay and always responded to any questions or concerns we had in a timely manner. We all highly recommend this house, and we will be back.
