About Julie Layman

We chose this area to build our beachfront home because of its laid back charm and the area's wonderful and friendly local people. Additionally, there are an abundance of activities, quaint shopping, and excellent restaurants available very near and/or within a 45 minute radius. A car ride from 3 International airports will bring you to our property in 1 hour to 2 hours. Panama City Airport = 50 miles, Tallahassee Airport = 100 miles, and Fort Walton = 100 miles (all approximately). The beaches are rarely crowded and the marine life and wildlife is abundant and thrilling to witness. Dolphin and bald eagle watching is a favorite activity, but, there's so much more! If you're lucky, you may witness sea turtles hatching and crawling to the sea where they begin their life journey. We are excited to share our home with families, couples, friends trips and the like. It brings meaning to us to be able to do so in order for others to have the ability to enjoy and appreciate this beautiful area and all that it has to offer as do we. We thank you for your interest and look forward to hearing from you.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful, inside and out! Outside, there were numerous decks and seating areas as well as an amazing walk-way directly to the open beach. Inside, our favorite spot was the large, open kitchen/dining/living area; it was perfect for family meals and playing games. The bedrooms were very well designed with large closets, 5 king on-suites, and comfy beds! The property was also very well equipped with 2 washers and dryers, 2 main refrigerators, 3 dishwashers, and more than enough dishes/silverware - all of which was very accommodating to our large group! We loved every minute of our stay and look forward to visiting the house and area again soon!

Wonderful home in Mexico Beach Fla!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 'Seas the Day', in Mexico Beach, Florida, in March 2018. It was the perfect home for our large group vacation! This beautiful home is conveniently located on the Gulf of Mexico and has 4 levels with an elevator. The house is nicely updated with a master bedroom, bath, W&D, kitchen and living room on the third main level. All the rooms are beautifully decorated, the furnishings were quite comfortable and the several spacious decks provide several areas to sit comfortably and take in the beautiful gulf front views. Each level has a convenient kitchenette and all of the beds are comfortable (as are the pillows-a must)! There is a private walkway, only steps to the white sandy beaches and a lovely heated pool. Seas has kayaks and paddle boards which we were unable to use due to heavy surf. We had some trouble with the internet but it was spring break! The home was clean, comfy and well maintained. We truly felt welcomed as Julie, our host was super nice and easy to communicate with. We recommend this home and give it 5 stars!

10 STARS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give this beautiful beach vacation home 10 STARS!! I went with my life long girl friends for one of the best weeks I have had in a long time. The house is warm and comfortable and spacious. My favorite spots in the whole house were the decks!!! Coffee in the morning on one deck, getting away during the day for some quiet reading time and warm sunshine on another and watching the sunset on the top floor deck, brought so much relaxation!!! The beach is right out the back door and it is amazingly beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed all the walks and shell hunting and of course all the girl time just soaking up the sun and the breeze. Cannot wait to go back!!

Beautiful upscale home in a great location with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful beach vacation home!!! We have spent our annual family vacation here 2 years in a row. It's absolutely GORGEOUS inside and out, and very clean and well kept. The color scheme throughout is so peaceful and serene, with an amazing wide open floor plan, and ocean views from the many large windows and doors. The beds are very comfortable. We have a large family, so we really like the privacy and convenience of the separate floors, with their own kitchens, and the many lovely bathrooms. The 2 washers and dryers make doing laundry for the whole gang a breeze. The views from the house, and beach location are spectacular! We love having our morning coffee while watching pods of dolphins swim by! Our little ones and teenagers spend endless hours at the beach and in the pool. In the evenings we so enjoy sitting out on the spacious decks (which have more than enough comfy deck furniture) with a nice glass of wine, relaxing and soaking in the breathtaking sunsets! We can't wait to spend time here again!

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful! The interior of this home is phenomenal and so comfortable. The kitchen is a chef's delight with anything you might need to cook the simplest of meals to a gourmet dinner. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony each evening visiting and enjoying the sound of the surf.

We had the stretch of private beach mostly to ourselves and the water and sand were beautiful.

Each bedroom is decorated perfectly and extremely comfortable with each having a private bath. Words can't say enough about the beauty and comfort of this home.
