Shelley Tumlin & Son
Shelley started "renting by owner" her Pelican L-02 at Destin West in 2004. She had no idea this would turn into a 13 year old business growing to 25 condos and working with her Dad, Bill. Shelley enjoys being her own boss ;) and thoroughly enjoys helping people experience a wonderful vacation with their loved ones. Being a native of the beautiful gulf coast (originally Pensacola) she finds it easy to talk of the beauty of her home with sugar-white sandy beaches and emerald colored water. Her #1 LUV is her adorable son, Gideon. He is her delight and being a mother is the best and most fulfilling calling. She loves the beach, camping in her vintage camper "Chigger", reading, coffee, riding bikes, kayaking, traveling anywhere and everywhere when she can, snowboarding (if she ever can get up north again), laughing, hanging with girlfriends, visiting relatives in the deep south, red wine, her family, naps, birthdays, Thanksgiving cranberry relish, playing guitar, heart-felt letters, and roller coasters. But mostly, she is grateful for the love of of Jesus Christ and though many times falls short, is thankful for His redemption and grace. 2 Corinthians 12:9 "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness".
Bill & Meredith Tumlin
Bill is a grandfather of 5 beautiful grandchildren and is a proud Papi'. He is blessed to have celebrated his 39th wedding anniversary with his lovely wife Meredith in 2013. Bill and Meredith are originally from Gadsden, Alabama, but raised their 2 daughters in the Pensacola area and love to call the gulf coast their home. Bill is a self-starter and has much experience in many fields, but seems to have found his "nitch" with vacation rentals. He enjoys helping people and is quite the handy-man. He loves reading every night before bed, is addicted to the news, loves running (before his Dr. told him to stop), Auburn football, fishing with his brother and sister on the Coosa River, is always up for a good movie, and he and his wife find much fulfillment in counseling married couples through many years of being a part of The Marriage Retreat in Destin. They have an extremely powerful testimony of hope in God's miracles and restoration.
