About Teresa Mumford

Needed a getaway to escape the cold central Indiana winters! We enjoy taking our dogs along with us & we wanted to be within a day's driving distance.

Teresa Mumford purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Teresa Mumford chose South Walton

This property is perfectly located! We have been looking for a couple of years from Destin to Appalachicola & this was our 1st trip to the quaint beach communities of South Walton. We fell in love with this 'park like' setting so close to the beach! We could not believe we actually found a bungalow available to be purchased! The bungalows offered everything we were looking for- perfect size, excellent amenities, on-going events all year long, charming community w/ excellent restaurants, shopping, golf but most importantly- half block to the beach! I'm usually not an 'ocean swimmer but the water here is crystal clear & you can see all the way down to the white sand.

What makes this bungalow unique

Location!!! Nestled perfectly between destin & panama city beach away from the crowds in a beautiful natural environment surrounded by parks, lakes & dunes and we can walk right out of the bungalow to the infamous 'emerald coast' to watch the most beautiful sunsets over the white sandy beach ! Cottage is comfortable & the perfect size! Wonderful selection of restaurants, leisure activities to please all ages.

A great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at She Sells Seashells. The pictures don't do the place justice. The place was very clean and well maintained. The decorations add to the atmosphere at the bungalow. Teresa had everything there that we needed from the cart to take the beach things to the beach, beach chairs, umbrella, plenty of beach towels, cooler, bikes, etc. The kitchen is also well stocked. We will definitely stay here again when we come back. It was also nice having the small pool right outside the bungalow. The only downside (for the kids) was there is no Wi-Fi but they survived :) Teresa was very nice to talk to and helpful when I had a question. Thanks again Teresa and Grant.

Owner's Response: Thank You for taking the time to write and also for your kind words! I love keeping the Bungalow "Freshly Updated" & I'm always replacing the linens, pillows & rugs for a different look ! (my husband threatens everytime I buy another throw pillow) And, I LOVE beachy décor! We live in the middle of cornfields & soy beans so when we travel to the Bungalow, it's like a different world! My husband actually stocks the kitchen (he is the cook in the family!) We have our "fave" list of venues we like to frequent while there but it certainly is nice to whip up dinner there & just relax on the balcony! We are definitely looking into the WIFI (I try to stay "off the grid" while we're there relaxing) but we are trying to keep the cost affordable as well. Again, Thank you so much and we are thrilled to have you return! Teresa & Grant Mumford :)

Great trip!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed for a wedding in June and absolutely loved the bungalow. The pictures don't do the place justice. It was very clean and had everything you needed for the beach. There is no need to bring beach chairs, towels, etc. The owners were wonderful to work with. We definitely plan on staying with you guys again. Thanks for making it a great trip!

Just don't take the dates I want...

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th stay in the Bungalows of Seaside and this particular unit was by far our favorite. The pictures do not do the unit justice: it is decorated with high-end decor (no basement leftovers or IKEA here) and truly felt like a home rather than a vacation rental. In addition, the unit had almost every incidental we could have needed. If you have ever stayed in a bare-bones rental, this point will not be lost on you. Beach equipment? Check. Extra bedding? Check. Extra padding for the pull-out couch? Check. Dog bed so your dog stays off the furniture? Check! Grill? Check. Bikes? Check. Q-tips? Check. Organized junk drawer with all the little stuff you didn't remember to pack? Check. :)

Furthermore, the owner was available to answer questions both before and during our stay. For instance, unbeknownst to me, we had an issue with our payment arriving and, rather than renting the unit to someone else when my money didn't show up, the owner reached out to me to ask if we were still coming (vacation saved!!!). During the stay, I needed a couple small things and she was very quick to answer my text messages.

The area itself is a real treasure, which is why we have returned each year for our spring break. The Bungalows are conveniently located close to the gorgeous beach and bike path, so you can bike to all the other nearby beach communities and leave your car parked. The pool/hot tub area at the Bungalows is always a hit with my family and, on days when the beach is too windy or cold, the pool offers a nice reprieve. It is never overly crowded and we always meet nice people poolside.

The only potential downside to this property is that, at the time of our stay, it did not have wi-fi. We were able to use our smart phones with some success, but we could not use laptops. I am a teacher and had planned to sit on the balcony to enter report card comments and I was really bummed to have to go to a coffee shop instead. Yes, the wi-fi was free at the coffee shop, but I really wanted to relax and complete the task. Having to go to another location put a kink in that plan. On the other hand, lack of wi-fi "forced" my two teenagers to disconnect and re-connect. They are not particularly tech-dependent, so after their initial disappointment, all was fine, but for some families, lack of wi-fi could be more problematic. Wi-fi is in the works?? I sure hope so because then this unit will be perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank You for taking the time to write a review on our Bungalow! We love to hear what our Guests truly think about their experience- we try our best to make it a memorable vacation! We have stayed in many VRBO properties ourselves so we know first-hand what separates the "good" from the "great". And, it is our own personal home as well so we like to maintain it as such. We are definitely looking at the WIFI capability as well . We do appreciate your kind remarks & also respecting our beautiful Bungalow during your stay- please come back in the future! The Mumfords

We loved the bungalow. Beach theme decorations were beautiful. Nice to have beach chairs, umbrella, and towels available. The kitchen was great if you wanted to cook and eat in, which we chose not to do. Loved the area, lots of things to do when you aren't at the beach. Bikes and bbq grill too. Thanks for a great week, hoping we can do it again this year.

Perfect Last Minute Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a trip to SeaGrove last minute and looked all over for a place that was reasonably priced and pet friendly. This bungalow is just that! It's very nicely decorated, comfortable, and surprisingly spacious. The kitchen was nicely stocked and even had a margarita machine that we frequently used. Nice bar area and eating nook in the kitchen as well. The top floor deck was perfect for a nighttime drink!

It was a quick 5 minute max walk to the beach-which was not very crowded and very nicely kept. It was a short bike ride or car ride to neighboring Seaside. There were several great restaurants closeby as well. The area over all is family and pet friendly, yet is not a loud area though. Very quiet even when highly occupied.

This was the first trip we were able to bring the dogs on, and this place was perfect for pets. They had dog toys, towels, leashes and bowls all provided if needed. I think the dogs enjoyed the trip as much as we did. Despite being pet friendly, this place was very clean. No signs of previous pet damage at all. The pictures are spot on, but this place is even cuter in person.

The owners were very quick to respond and very accommodating. I have no complaints about this place whatsoever. I highly recommend it and will hopefully stay here again in the future. If you're looking for a nice,relaxing trip while staying under a budget, this place is great! Great bungalow near a truly great beach and town. Amazing trip!
