About Sheila Maynard

WE WELCOME YOU TO OUR FAMILY BEACH HOME. THE MAYNARDS HAVE OWNED AND MANAGED THIS PRIME PROPERTY SINCE 1983 AND MANY OF OUR GUESTS WERE INTRODUCED TO US WAY BACK THEN. I AM PROUD TO BE THE SECOND GENERATION TO OFFER OUR 'HOME BY THE SEA'.

Sheila Maynard purchased this condo in 1983

Why Sheila Maynard chose USA

ONCE YOU ENJOY THE EMERALD COAST EXPERIENCE, YOU WILL KNOW WHY THE MAYNARD FAMILY IS PROUD TO CALL THIS 'OUR HOME BY THE SEA'.

BY SELF MANAGING, WE ARE ABLE TO PASS ALONG THE 30-35% SAVINGS TO OUR GUESTS WHILE PROVIDING A PROPERTY THAT IS OUR OWN VACATION HOME. IT IS EQUIPPED AS SUCH AND OFFERS FAMILY ATMOSPHERE APART FROM THE "COOKIE CUTTER CONDO" OFFERED BY AGENCIES. OUR RATES ARE FAR SUPERIOR TO THOSE OF OUR NEIGHBORS UNDER AGENCY CONTRACT AND IT IS OUR WISH THAT THE SAVINGS WE PASS ALONG TO OUR GUESTS MAY INSTEAD BE USED TO PRODUCE MEMORIES THAT LAST A LIFETIME.

What makes this condo unique

We are nestled in between Rosemary and Seaside. We are in Seagrove Beach! We are just a 10 minute drive to Pier Park at Panama City Beach. It is really nice on 30A with quiet family friendly beaches. Our beach is very secluded from noisy crowds. You can walk right off our back porch to the beach and not worry about packing coolers and all the things you need for a day at the beach. If you forget something, just walk right up the steps to the condo. There is a nice verandah to relax and read a book and watch the children play in the sand. Cook dinners on our outside grill while watching the ocean and sunset. It is our families paradise. We are just minutes from Seaside and Rosemary. There are sidewalks that run the length of 30A for bikers or walkers. This is definitely a biking community with many places to rent bikes. Seagrove has been rated the most secluded beaches on 30A.

Notes:
Excellent location just 15 minute drive to Pier Park in Panama City. This beach is not crowded with much privacy! We are classified as Seacrest/Seagrove beach and voted the #1 beach on 30 A for privacy. We are 1.7 miles from Rosemary Beach and 5 miles from Seaside. There are so many nice restaraunts and shopping close by and many activities for the family. It's so nice to go out and enjoy all the activities along 30A and to take the family to Pier Park but then come back to a nice quiet walk on our secluded beach! It's Heaven on earth!

COMPLETELY exceeded our expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my two daughters and I arrived, we were amazed by the view and location of the condo. It was extremely clean and stocked with all the comforts of home. I can't say enough about the king size bed, it was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. We thoroughly enjoyed the back patio and comfortable furniture. It was fabulous for morning coffee and dolphin watching. A MAJOR plus with this condo is being on the first floor where you can walk right off the porch and down to the beach. Thank you Sheila for a wonderful vacation for us, we will definitely be back!

I would NOT stay here again...and this is why:

  • 2 of 5

The beach was awesome, the view was spectacular, and the fun our family had was magnificent (that alone would get 5 stars), but, I would not stay in this unit again for a couple of reasons. Upon arriving with three coolers of food, I knew immediately the refrigerator/freezer was not working as our frozen meat began thawing out in the freezer with-in hours. Sheila was quick responding but it took four appointments (on my vacation time with ME meeting with the repairmen), three days of multiple purchases of dry-ice and ice in order to pack our food in our coolers, some food spoilage, and FINALLY (because the repairman said it was not fixable) a new refrigerator/freezer was delivered after THREE DAYS of a faulty ref/freezer. Sheila did not feel it necessary to reimburse us for the ice and dry-ice purchases, nor the items that spoiled (two items) not to mention my time away from my family to meet someone FOUR times as well as the energy and time working to keep our food from spoiling over three days due to the faulty refrigerator/freezer. Although Sheila did respond to my concerns over the ref/freezer (with disbelief at times that this could not be true to the point she'd deal with it when she came down after us), she never responded to a formal complaint placed to VRBO in order to try to reconcile the above situation. I was also disappointed with the interior of the condo: broken lamp shade, stained barstools (one torn), a faulty (unfunctionable) sliding-door blind, junk in about half the storage areas which should be utilized by guests, horrible sleeper sofa - the sleeper actually chose the chair or couch over the pull-out bed, shaven beard-hair in the bathroom cabinet upon arrival (not ours...yuck), dust/dustballs in/on cabinets, and somewhat outdated unit. While the condo is steps from the beach, the view from within the condo is great, the back deck is probably the best we've ever experienced, and there was Netflix provided, at the rate we paid per night, I expect a little more in a condo and I also expect an owner to take responsibility (not just in the replacement and response) for a faulty appliance (I should not pay extra for her faulty refrigerator/freezer and spend vacation/family time for four appointments for the owner's business). Signed: a 13 year plus Seacrest Beach visitor who has never given anything but 5 stars and great reviews on VRBO rentals, Shawn Adams.

Owner's Response: My number one priority when renting my second home to guests is to ensure a wonderful vacation with all amenities in working order. I'm really sorry you didn’t feel our rentals offered a good value for the price you paid. We’ve been in business for 15 years and having hosted more than 800 guests, We like to use the very rare incidents like this one to re-oil our operations so that the dissatisfaction never happens again.

Beautiful creations

  • 5 of 5

Had the most beautiful scenery all day every day. From the dolphins jumping and playing at 7:30 am while drinking coffee on the front porch, then the warm sun on the sand and calm Waters at noon, to the beautiful sunset in the evening. All worth the trip and relaxing to God's beautiful creations. Thank you for making me a beach bum!!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location right on the beach. We enjoyed breakfast on the porch overlooking the water. Plenty of room for my husband and me. Yes, a bit outdated, but you can't be the proximity to the sand.

Beautiful beach !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It's a great location and gorgeous beach. We will be updating throughout the Spring. Some of the other units with posh upgrades comes with a price tag. We are substantially cheaper than those units. We have all the comforts of home and our condo unit is clean, enjoyable, and a cozy place directly on the beach. The improvements that we made last year were brand new washer and dryer, top of the line memory foam King sized bed and a relaxing recliner chair. We will be updating our patio furniture this week which is a great place to watch for dolphins on the back porch. Thank you again. We strive to be excellent at customer satisfaction.
