About Debi Miller/Judi Hinckley

Don & I (Debi) are brother and sister and both reside in Columbus, GA. Together with our mother, Norma, we purchased this townhome as a family retreat and rental property in our favorite place in the world, the sandy beaches of Panama City Beach. Two of my daughters and their families reside in Panama City Beach and my son-in-laws, Chris & Richard, are available to make sure the home is maintained properly.

Debi Miller/Judi Hinckley purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Debi Miller/Judi Hinckley chose Panama City Beach

Don & I have many fond memories of beach trips with our families. When we furnished our home, we wanted to maintain the 'family' feel with the amenities we wanted when we were at the beach. We hope you enjoy your time here.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

The condo and the resort is the best place to stay in Panama City Beach. Everything we needed from cooking, to beach access, nearby restaurants, and the complimentary golf cart made this trip a perfect choice. We went to St. Andrews Marina where a woman sets up every day and sells fresh shrimp and took advantage of the several local fish markets. Every question we had for the landlord, Judi, was answered promptly. She didn’t have vacancy for a stay at a later date but assisted in finding another rental. Couldn’t asked for more and hope to rent from her again.

The perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was half work and half vacation. The location was perfect for us to get around for absolutely everything. We met several grounds crew and security guards and all were very friendly, which has not been the case at other resorts we have stayed at in the past. The home and grounds were clean and well maintained. This property is exactly as described and represented in the pictures. The kitchen is fully stocked above and beyond what we expected. The beds were super comfortable. Having the golf cart for us to get to and from the beach was an extra special amenity that we loved and the dogs enjoyed the joy ride through the complex too :-) Debi and Judi were wonderful to rent from. Any questions we had, they responded immediately and they went out of their way to check on us during our stay. They made sure we were completely informed about everything in the house so that the check-in and check-out process was a breeze. We will definitely stay here in the future. You can't go wrong renting this property for your next vacation!!

This property looks really nice on the surface of everything, BUT these owners do NOT keep up their property, furniture, bedding (mattresses) etc. There is only adequate seating for 2 people to sit and relax comfortably. There is one small couch that is very broken down, you sink down so far you're almost sitting on the floor. There is one nice comfortable chair with a footstool, but then the other 2 chairs are as comfortable as sitting on a dining room chair and they are awkwardly placed against the wall where the television is mounted. The owners are very skimpy on how much hand soap, dish soap, dishwasher tabs, trash bags, etc. They left 2 dishwasher tabs for you to use and the dishwashing soap was EMPTY. There was NO HAND SOAP at all in the kitchen, it was empty also. There was handsoap in the bathrooms, but not a lot. The master bathroom and the guest bathroom sinks are clogged up and doesn't drain adequately. And then there is the complimentary "golf cart" for your use to the beach. It is a complete piece of junk. The seats are mildewed and crumbling. The battery guage showed a completely fully charged, ready to go status....BUT....we only got down to the end of the street in front of the owners beach house and it died. The battery guage then showed completely drained. We contacted the owners and they sent over their "supposedly" nephew to "fix" the golf cart and he came the next morining and plugged it up to a battery charger and LEFT. He repeatedly did this for 2 days in a row, just coming and plugging up the golf cart and LEAVING! He OVERCHARGED the golf cart and damaged it and then the owners informed me that they are keeping MY PROPERTY DAMAGE DEPOSIT for damaging THEIR golf cart. I reported these owners to the HomeAway company and got my deposit refunded. These owners are shady. They sent me several very NASTY emails regarding the golf cart and my request for my deposit to be refunded. They went so far as to calling me and my family nasty names! Please, do NOT rent from these owners. HomeAway is a wonderful company and they have plenty of other owners who will not rip you off. Thank you HomeAway for resolving this issue quickly!

Fun Family Trip

  • 4 of 5

This is a very clean townhome across the street from the beach. The walk looked like it would be long on the property was actually a pleasant walk. There was a nice fold up wagon in the "beach closet" which was very helpful...along with a beach umbrella, beach chairs and other items. We were very pleased with our home away from home.

We enjoyed the on-property amenities as courts, shuffle board, and various pools.

Judi was very nice and easy to work with...which is certainly a plus!

Little townhouse of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family booked here for a week. We loved it! Clean townhouse, comfy beds, everything you need to cook. But the best part was that we could sit out back, watch our son in the pool and let our dog play. We pulled our cooler to the provided chairs and just sat, talked, and relaxed. Plus there is a golf cart to get you to the beach. We packed up the chairs and tent then drove to the beach access. There is a putt putt course out back as well, our son met other kids and played a round each morning. My husband and I both agree that this is the best location that we have stayed in a very long time. The Liq is a great spot right outside the beach access for an adult beverage. Montego Bay had delicious shrimp and grits. Rock-it-Lanes provided a fun arcade morning during a rain shower (Tuesday is 1/2 price). Pineapple Willies had awesome fried shrimp dinner! We booked family beach photos at Smiles. All these spots are right by Gulf Highlands. Walmart is very close for the things you forgot to pack. You can even scoot over to Pier Park for shopping. The owners answer your questions very quickly. We are looking forward to booking here again and having another week to RELAX, UNWIND, and ENJOY!

Highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely wonderful. Judi and Debi were awesome to rent from. Very personable and checked on us to see if there was anything we needed or wanted. They had everything prepared for our arrival and communication regarding check in and check out was perfect. Fully stocked townhouse with everything you need right down to the beach towels and even a rolling beach cart. The golf cart was an extra special touch and we enjoyed it very much! We have stayed at Gulf Highlands for nearly 20 years. The owner we rented from all those years sold their unit and we had to find another place. I was very nervous because you never know what you will get. Everything online about the unit (info and pics) was exactly as it says. We were thrilled with our new "Home away from Home" and have already booked it for next year. We have requested a standing reservation for our same two weeks each year! YES, it was that good! I highly recommend this unit and these owners. You can go wrong with this listing! Absolutely perfect!
