House, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 18)
About Melanie Brown
I am the middle child in a loving family with 4 brothers. As a large family, we enjoy and have been enjoying the gulf beach for over thirty five years. We love the beautiful water, the white beaches, the award-winning restaurants and the many activities available. We are excited about having Mango I and Mango II to share with other families who wish to experience the beach! Mango Mansion is truly our "home away from home" as we live only a little over an hour away in rural southeast Alabama. We are at Mango as often as our busy work and school schedules will allow us to do so. When we can't be there, we find it rewarding to know that our home is filled with family love and laughter. Our hope is for our guests to experience all the joy and fun we have when we gather at Mango with family and friends. Why did we choose 'Fullquiver' for our vacation rentals? From Psalm 127:3-5 we read that children are a gift from God and blessed is he whose quiver is full. As you can see from the photo, our quiver is very full! Together we are known as the "Fullquiver Gang": My parents, John and Karen Simmons, their five grown children (John,David,Melanie,Paul and Mark), our wonderful spouses (Vivian,Stephanie,Seth and Kristina) and of course all the adorable grandchildren.
Melanie Brown purchased this House in 2010
Why Melanie Brown chose Seagrove Beach

Great long weekend!
The property is nice with plenty of room for multiple families!
The location was very good! We made it work:)
The size and layout of the actual house is amazing! Large groups would be hard pressed to find the location and size for this price anywhere else:) It's exactly 2 miles each way from Seaside town proper. Unfortunately, we had to do some major cleaning before we were even comfortable sleeping in the beds. I even took a picture of the dirt to send to owner privately. We aren't clean-freaks by any stretch, but the filth was months, if not years, accumulated. Very possible that the owner just doesn't realize that the "cleaning" crew has become VERY lax. We got out the vacuum and got busy. The entry doors were so caked with dirt. Simply giving them a quick wipe down before the quests arrive would have been sufficient. They were just nasty:( The cleaning service arrived around 2:00 in the afternoon, and we were scheduled to check in at 4:00. We don't see how they could have possibly changed out all the beds, much less done any "cleaning" in a 2 hour period?? There are 10 beds! Outside of the cleaning concerns, there are some running toiliet issues, and a couple of the tvs wouldnt work, no matter how closely we followed the directions. The pool was very dirty, and looking unkept. Please know that the property is on beach SIDE, but certainly not beach "view". A very large/tall house sits directly behind the Mango, and blocks any chance of that. The balcony is lovely, but your view will be the house directly behind you. But, the walk isn't terribly far to get on the beach, and we were fine with that. As long as you don't struggle with stairs or a bit of a distance, it shouldn't be an issue. We were with good friends, and made it all work fine for us, but I rely heavily on VRBO reviews to make decisions, so I'm always honest. If the issues mentioned are addressed, we would likely consider this property again!!
Good place other then view!
Pictures show it’s on the beach but you actually are looking at the back of another house. They need to update those pictures. But other then that it was a great place.
The size & location for our family was great. The home definitely needs a thorough cleaning. There must be plumbing issues as there was some water dripping under the house where we were parking cars. The a/c couldn't keep up in the living & kitchen areas even though it was cold in bedrooms.
Connie, glad you enjoyed your stay. The water under the house that was running on the ground outside was from the a/c unit. A/C repair guy fixed issue already and the only plumbing issue was related to the a/c which is now fixed.
Family Gathering of Generations
This is the second time we have stayed at Mango and have enjoyed it very much. I would suggest a couple needed updates.
The wi-fi did not reach the back bedrooms and was very, very slow. We never could find a router to try a reset.
There are a couple of steps going up to the second floor where the faceboards on the steps need to be looked at, they catch heels and could become dangerous. Also, the spigot in the kitchen - cold to the right, cold to the left, hot in the very center, but not very hot.
While the cooler in the kitchen is great and does a wonderful job, heavy to empty though, I always wish for a little larger refrigerator, may a side by side is not the best choice.. The ice maker could not keep up with the number of people
Love tile floors, but carpet is looking a little sad.
Last but not least, there needs to be some repair work done in the concrete by the steps in the pool. it is cracking and chipping.
Your service when we needed it during the week was great. Overall, it was a great week. We love the layout of the house, with bedrooms, baths and the large gathering area - very important to our family.
Great set up & location
Perfect for for 3 families. It might be a little tight for more than that. We had 6 adults and 6 kids. If you don’t like walking up steps this place may not be for you, but we were glad to have the extra steps for exercises. We would rent this place again.
Anything having to do with water or water sports is closely available; 19 mile paved bicycle/walking trail crosses our driveway
