About Brian Glowaski

We fell in love with the Beaches of South Walton and enjoy sharing it with our family, friends, and guests.

Why Brian Glowaski chose Santa Rosa Beach

Aside from the sugary white sands and the crystal clear water, our house sits in a great neighborhood of Gulfview Heights. Our beach access does not get crowded.

We are with in a very short walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars, and an ice cream shop.

What makes this house unique

Beach access with restrooms and lifeguard protection

Large private swimming pool


Natural gas Broilmaster grill, no need to mess with charcoal or lp gas tanks

No wait keyless check in/out

Beach access with restrooms and lifeguard protection

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for letting us rent your beach house - Parm Paradise. When we first arrived, I thought we must be at the wrong house because it was way too nice to be a rental. You can imagine my delight when I tried the code and the door opened.

From the minute we walked in, we were in love. I wish I had a video of our faces as we ran from room to room. Each room was decorated so cute and everyday there was something new to discover.

Our family consisted of 8 people - my parents, my mother-in-law, 3 children and my husband and me. We were really impressed with the sleeping & bathroom accomodations. Everyone had their own space and the sheets smelled nice too.

The pool was an added bonus and very refreshing after a day at the beach. Some days we just stayed at home and played in the pool - only to see the ocean while sipping drinks from the 3rd floor balcony.

We couldn't have asked for a better location or a more accomodating house. we felt very lucky to have rented such a beautiful home.

All of us were sad when our week was up and we had to return home. My family is still talking about the wonderful time we had at Palm Paradise and those memories will be with us always.

Thanks again for taking such pride in your property - it really shows!

Palm Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Palm Paradise many times it is a beautiful house in a beautiful location. The house is an incredible house and such a peaceful area. The beaches are beautiful and the house is always so clean and you do not need to bring anything it is all there. Walking distance from the beach and shopping just short distances away. The dining is fantastic and sunsets incredible. We love this house and this area you will not be let down.

Best week ever!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Paradise is our favorite! We have returned several times. The house is fully equipped with just about everything you would ever need for a fabulous beach vacation and so close to the beach too! And if you don't want to go to the beach, the pool is right there instead. The house is centrally located and convenient to a number of things to do. We will definitely return! Hopefully with more friends this time.

Relax at Palm Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Palm Paradise on several occasions and each time it was a wonderful experience. The home has everything you could ask for - spacious enough to accommodate a large group, beautifully furnished, a kitchen with everything that you would find in your own home (and more), location close to the beach, an inviting pool and three outside areas where you can relax and enjoy the scenery. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation and we can't wait to go back! We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a top-notch rental and a wonderful vacation.

Great family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying here. Everything is as described and a perfect fit for our two families. Wonderful location, close to the beach, plenty of space. The oversized pool is great for an afternoon swim. Brian is great to work with and very accommodating. I highly recommend staying here.

Well maintained home.

  • 5 of 5

Nice home, well stocked with everything we needed for cooking. Nice that they finally paved the street out front too!

We had friends stay here a few years back and they had a positive experience and so did our family.

Thank you,

Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

Unbeatable location just 2 short blocks to the beach, 1 block to ice cream shop and fresh fish market! Our 3 families with 6 children under 10 absolutely loved it! There was abundant room for all of us and we'll supplied kitchen to make family style meals. The kids loved the pool and beach toys (supplied by owner). And the adults enjoyed quiet conversation on the porches. This home is very spacious but homey and comfortable. We will treasure the memories of the week spent at Palm Paradise.
