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 Beaches of South Walton

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 came down for SALLFEST. Windows By the Sea is a beautiful, well appointed home with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The master suite is amazing. All the beds are super comfy. Best house I have stayed at in the area.

Beautiful home, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our annual trip for Fall Break with another family. The house was beautiful and well-equipped for all our needs. The bunk room was perfect for our little boys and the view room was great for our pre-teens. Thanks for a lovely vacation, we had an awesome time!

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week staying in Windows By The Sea! It is a beautiful, spacious home and we loved dining together and spending time together on the porches. The shuttle is very convenient, but we didn't use it much because the walk to the beach is pretty short and easy.

The owner is great to work with and was very responsive to all of our questions. Our only complaint is that the love seat sleeper in one of the bedrooms is not very comfortable, especially for an adult. All in all, it was a wonderful place to spend a week with all of our grown kids and to celebrate the engagement of one of them! We would definitely stay there again! Thank you, Debbie!!

Great house. Responsive owner. Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

There were glitches, like no working ice maker, not enough towels, but owner responded immediately and rectified all situations.

House is gorgeous and the configuration perfectly suited our needs. We used every available bed space. The loft sofa sleeper is a double and could have used a topper like memory foam to make it comfortable. My sister said the blow up matress was the best she's ever slept on..it's the auto blow up with legs.

The beach was crowded so I appreciated having a screw in umbrella that I could take to a less crowded patch on the far right.

I like quality and this house is it. And it's only a short walk to the pool.

Book this, you won't be sorry.

This is a wonderful, quaint, family friendly beach destination community approximately 5 hours from Atlanta by car and 1 hour by plane, an easy drive from Tennessee and many surrounding areas. It is a walkable and bikeable community on Scenic 30A with lots of cool restaurants, shopping. Our home is one row into the subdivision and is a quick walk to the beach or the pool. It's a wonderful quick get-a-way for family and friends that is on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida. It's perfect any time of year for Spring Break, Summer Vacation, Fall or Winter relaxing retreat, or Holiday Home.
