About Melanie Brown

Melanie Simmons Brown is the middle child of our five grown children and our only daughter. Melanie handles the multitudes of daily rental inquiries we receive for Mango Mansion while the rest of our immediate family tackles the other responsibilities of our beach house. We are a large family that has enjoyed the gulf beach for over thirty five years. We love the beautiful water, the white beaches, the award-winning restaurants and the many activities available. We are excited about having Mango I and Mango II to share with other families who wish to experience the beach! Mango Mansion is truly our "home away from home" as we live only a little over an hour away in rural southeast Alabama. We are at Mango as often as our busy work and school schedules will allow us to do so. When we can't be there, we find it rewarding to know that our home is filled with family love and laughter. Our hope is for our guests to experience all the joy and fun we have when we gather at Mango with family and friends. Why did we choose 'Fullquiver' for our vacation rentals? From Psalm 127:3-5 we read that children are a gift from God and blessed is he whose quiver is full. As you can see from the photo, our quiver is very full! Together we are known as the "Fullquiver Gang": John and Karen Simmons, five grown children (John,David,Melanie,Paul and Mark), their wonderful spouses (Vivian,Stephanie,Seth and Kristina) and of course our absolutely adorable grandchildren!!

Melanie Brown purchased this house in 2010

Why Melanie Brown chose Seagrove Beach

The entire Seagrove Beach area is convenient to a wide variety of beach activities including water activities, shopping, dining, and entertainment. In addition, you can access a paved walking/bicycling path from our driveway that runs for miles east and west along Hwy 30-A.

What makes this house unique

With a spacious living/dining area, there is room to accommodate everyone when we all wish to be together. On the other hand, we all have our own bedroom and bathroom when we wish to retire on our own.

Best Vacation My Military Family Has Had!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at Mango l twice. Once in 2015, and most recently in July 2017. My husband is often deployed, and we don’t much time together, so our vacation time and the location is important to us. Mango l was spotless upon our arrival. I am a clean freak, and this rental was up to my standards! There were also gift bags waiting, and a cot that we requested all made up with clean sheets, and blankets. Not knowing the area, we contacted the owners, who made great recommendations for local family fun, and amazing restaurants and shopping. Of course, the beach and all of the beach accessories that came with the rental were a highlight as well. I am currently in touch with Mrs. Brown, scheduling our next trip.

Mango II of Seagrove, a mansion yes but in need of upkeep and cleaning!

  • 1 of 5

Our family had adequate space but upon arrival we had a space that was lacking in cleanliness and basic upkeep. I have been on this coast for thirty five years with my family and I could never have been more shocked by the rental I walked into for the money I paid. May your painted words

Prick your hearts, deception at its best.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a full week and had a fabulous time. We found everything about the house and the location to be absolutely perfect! We love to cook and were pleased the kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware and utensils. We enjoyed being able to all eat together in the large dining area. There were even toddler dishes, a high chair and a booster seat for the little ones. The house was neat and very clean and very tastefully decorated. We spread out and used all six bedrooms and appreciated the luxury of having a private bathroom with each bedroom. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach and the private pool which was sparkling clear and wonderful. The beach was so convenient as it was just a short walk out the back and down the private boardwalk. There was even a bin full of beach toys and chairs for us to use. The Simmons family was real easy to work with and so accommodating. They provided us with 3 pack "n" plays plus linens for our babies. The gift bag they left us made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed ourselves so much we have already book another week at Mango. We can't wait to return.

Cockroaches and used dental floss

  • 1 of 5

We had a horrible experience at Mango 1. Not on the beach like the discription leads you to believe. There are 30 steps to the beach. No water view. View only of a parking lot and very close to a road. The place was very dirty upon arrival. We found mold, sticky stuff on the floors and used dental floss on a night stand. Parts of the ceiling is falling down over the master bed. Yes there were also cockroaches. We spent most of the week cleaning and setting roach traps. I would not recommend.

Owner's Response: Please note:The individual who wrote this review is NOT the individual who rented the unit from us. It sounds as if he was quite displeased and that is very disappointing to us. Mango is truly our personal home away from home as we live only a little over an hour away.In fact, we had just spent a week there seven days before this rental.We found the house clean and pleasant as usual. Mango has been listed with VRBO for almost fifteen years now and we have a guest book with well over 300 letters from folks telling us what a great time they had! Many of our guests send us photos of their time at Mango and some even share Christmas cards with us. We find it rewarding to know that our home is filled with family fun and laughter while we are away. Most of our guests are repeat renters. In fact, after just their first visit, both the folks who rented shortly before this rental and the folks who rented shortly thereafter have now decided to become repeat renters as well. We are excited to add them to the "Mango Family"! Just to be clear about location: We are located on the beach side of Highway 30A in an area known as the Beaches of South Walton. Specifically, we are located in Seagrove Beach. There is one house located between us and the beach front. If you truly want to enjoy all the amenities of a family home, round up your family and come visit us!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

This property far exceeds the listing description and photos. It is clean and well maintained, perfect for our large family, consisting of adults and children. We have enjoyed family vacations together for several years. Mango is our favorite, 2nd to none.

We made memories and started a new family tradition @ Seagrove Beach, couldn't be better.

Perfect house for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The owners were extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions and shopping near by. The house was very clean and decorated beautifully. The rooms are very large and each have their own bathroom, love that! We met our extended family here and had a wonderful New Year! This house was the perfect size for our family reunion. We would stay here again in a second.
