                      VRBO Bear enjoying the deck 03/02/2011

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:


                      Well...the Bear just made a return visit to this home and "Bon Bini" still lives up to expectations! "Bon Bini" means "welcome" and this home again welcomed my buddies and me for a great stay in one of Destin area’s great beachfront neighborhoods "Destiny by the Sea". This prestigious gated community has only a ‘beary’ small number of homes, each fancier than a bear is accustomed to, and Bon Bini among the nicest of the bunch. All the streets are brick, and the private beach has enough room for hundreds of bears! The beach is made up of pure-white, clean, ‘beary’ soft sand, and the water is crystal-clear emerald green, as the Destin area is famous for, making it one of the premier beach areas in Florida.

                      Bon Bini was very comforting and packed with lots of amenities. From the moment we unloaded suitcases, I was thinking about how we would get them up 3 flights of stairs in this 3 story masterpiece, but right inside the front door was an elevator! Considering all three floors have their own master bedroom, we were sure able to spread out as if we each had our own den. As you may have noticed, I like to sit on the deck wherever I go, and Bon Bini had enough decks to go around a dozen vacation homes! Each deck was open and inviting, each lined with glass doors, providing a nice open ambiance. Every deck had wonderful views of the ocean, Florida palms, or this truly unique and quiet neighborhood.

                      Even though bears usually live off the land, this bear was dining on seafood every night, and Bon Bini is just seconds away from many of Destin’s great seafood restaurants. Destin is, after all, the world’s luckiest fishing village, so you can enjoy all the fresh, local seafood you want and don’t need a bear’s fishing skills.

                      Bon Bini is truly an amazing vacation home, full of fine furnishings, conveniences you can only imagine, unbelievable room and comfort, and a golf cart for leisurely cruises around the neighborhood. If you want a solid first-class vacation or hibernation experience in the family-friendly Destin area, you can't go wrong by staying at Bon Bini!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Steve is a consultant to the Home Medical Equipment industry. He lives in Columbia, SC with wife Michele and son Jack.

                      Why the Owner Chose Destiny-By-The-Sea:
                      We purchased Bon Bini to enjoy special memories with family and friends.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our guests love the 1800 SF of outside decking that wraps around all 3 floors. There are views of the ocean from two sides of the house. The elevator makes it easy to bring luggage upstairs and the golf cart makes it fun to drive around the community. There are two Weber natural gas grills on the 2nd floor deck, conveniently close to the kitchen and living areas. Our guests have told us that the beach toys in the garage for the kids and the baby equipment is a big plus. We keep a well stocked kitchen to please the most demanding cooks.
