About Josh Brown - Owner

One night I was playing Brown Eyed Girl on the guitar down at the beach and the next day we found our dream beach house for sale and just knew she was the one so that is what we named her! I told my son you can't skim-board on a stock certificate and we have enjoyed our investment ever since.

We have had so many happy families stay with us over the years. We constantly keep updating the interior and keeping it fresh.

Come stay with us, I guarantee your happiness or your money back! -Josh Brown & Family

Josh Brown - Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why Josh Brown - Owner chose South Walton

This dune lake area is unique on our planet, only three locations like it in the world. The park service protects so much of the gulf front and sprinkled between the parks are the most beautiful little beach homes and cottages I have ever seen. So many great little restaurants and fun activities for the family to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Our home is so comfortable and quiant and the kitchen, dining and living room area is a great place where everyone congregates as a family. So many wonderful memories are made at Brown Eyed Girl and you will make many of your own!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We love the location! Close to the beach, tucked in behind the Gourd Garden, so very private; and close to Collaborations, one of our favorite stores. The new Publix nearby is great. Summer's Edge and your home are beautiful!"

A special vacation home and locaiton with Brown-Eyed Girl

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose Seagrove over Destin this last spring break 2014 and searched for a house by the beach. Brown-eyed Girl was so special on quaint Ryan street, a couple miles east of Seaside. The house was perfect and so well-designed. Comfortable for our group of two parents and 7 teens and grade schoolers. The sleeping arrangements were so comfortable with roomy beds and bathes upstairs and down. Gathering room and kitchen was so open and accommodating. WiFi, TVs, hardwoods, high-end kitchen and all the comforts of home. The low traffic and 5 minute walk to our two pools made this so safe for our family. The house was well-built and suited for meals and all our comings and goings. Bikes were a great way to travel. Josh, the owner, was pleasant and professional and the rental service so polite and available for questions or needs. We are going back this SPRING! We fell in love with Seagrove and the laid-back and non-commerical vibe. Plus, the house really is good for 10 guests.

Great house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 4 children ages 7 to 15) stayed at the Brown Eyed Girl for the first time this summer and we loved it! We've stayed in Seagrove before but first time in Summer's Edge. Before we even parked in front of the house, we were welcomed by a beautiful tree lined street with a quaint neighborhood feel. The house was immediately welcoming and better than the photos. Clean, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. The pool and beach were a short stroll down a quiet path so even if you're carrying beach towels, cooler and chairs ... it's no big deal. Grocery store 5min drive and walking distance to several bars/eateries. Would highly recommend for families or getaway with friends.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Thank You Josh for "the deal of the century". We have stayed at numerous properties within the Summers Edge Community and this home combined with your excellent rates made this one of our favorite vacations YET! If you are reading this review in hopes of more details about the home maybe I can help. Brown Eyed Girl was EXACTLY as described on this listing. The pics posted here do not do this house justice. The house comfortably accommodated our family (6 adults and 3 children). The main living area is very open. While us ladies prepared meals in the kitchen we could easily have conversations, and enjoy the same tv shows with the others in the living area. The Kitchen was well equipped, we never wished for anything that this house did not provide. The dining table was somewhat small but there was an open bar that seated the others. As you walk in the house Living room is on your right, the kitchen to your left. There is a 1/2 bath located just off of the kitchen. On the back side of the house you have one room on the left with full size bed and twin size bed. A split Jack -N- Jill Full bath connects to the second bedroom (Queen Bed). There is no access to this bathroom from living area. The stairwell separates the two bedrooms leading to the Master bedroom (2nd floor). The master bedroom is somewhat on the small side, the the master bath room is spacious and economical. Nothing fancy. The Hardwood floors are beautiful. The furniture is comfy and accommodating. Two of the kids age (12) slept on the sofa sleeper with no problem.We all felt right at home within our first nights stay. The parking is tight, as is most of the rentals within summers edge, however we parked (2) vehicles in front of the property (Nissan Murano, and a Dodge Ram Quad cab) with a little extra efforts. The drive is to small to park larger vehicles as it is community ordinance that you cannot block the side walk. Parking in the driveway was also a little tight even with my SUV. Its by all means "do-able" but at the same time a huge pain the tail. ALL IN ALL... a heck of deal, and a great place to stay within walking distance to one of the most beautiful beaches in the WORLD yes I would do it again.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Brown Eyed Girl in Summers Edge and loved every minute. We were so pleased that the house looked just like the photos provided. Well stocked large kitchen was wonderful for gathering together while we prepared a fabulous seafood feast. The kitchen had everything we needed. This house is beautifully decorated and well maintained. Great lay out. The bedrooms are of ample size and we were very comfortable. A quick stroll had us at the beach and Eastern Lake. Gorgeous dune/lake area. Wonderful for walking. Also, we discovered 5 miles of jogging trails in the state forest directly across the street. Restaurants, bars and shopping all close by. Looking forward to staying at the Brown Eyed Girl again this summer!

Fall Break

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved our visit to Seagrove Beach and the Brown Eyed Girl! The house was perfect, extremely clean, very well furnished and more than met expectations. This was our second stay in Seagrove Beach and we will definitely be returning next year for Fall Break.

My wife and I traveled with my parents and two children (8 and 12). My parents appreciated the downstairs bedroom. We cooked most every night in the large, well appointed kitchen and dined out a few evenings at Cocoon (takeout BBQ..yum), Fat Clemenza's and Pizza by the Sea.

Summers Edge is the best kept secret neighborhood in Seagrove Beach. It's very quiet and we loved the two pools for the kids and the short walk to the beach is perfect.

Thanks Josh for allowing our family to visit your wonderful Brown Eyed Girl!

Beautiful, Clean Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Brown Eyed Girl in May 2010. The home is beautifully decorated and the layout was perfect for our infant daughter. The home was SPOTLESS- and I am a fanatic about cleanliness. Very quiet neighborhood and a short walk to the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mase Family and glad you made some special memories and hopefully you wrote a little bit about yourselves and your family in our guest book. We love to read those stories about our guests and the times they have had. Come back to our Brown Eyed Girl anytime, she's yours too now!
