Recent Scenic Gulf Drive Central West reviews

  • Beach Retreat

    "My wife and I nested here in Feb the last 2 years. It was wonderful from the beginning and we looked forward to returning all year. The sight and sound of the gulf from the balcony makes it almost unnecessary to go down to the beach. I still like to get my feet wet, but she is happy inside. She actually loves being in the kitchen. I also bike the greenway across the street, perfect way to explore Destin, and Louise has a storage area at the front of the condo that has room to store 2 bikes. She also has anything you might need to play at the beach. My daughter and grandkids get to come down for a long weekend during our stay. Then the fun really starts. Both visits we have had at least one good day for the beach during their stay. First year we made a life sized sand dolphin, this year we made a shark, complete with shell teeth, next time we plan to do a large sea turtle. This has been wonderful for my wife and I, the best way I know to celebrate my retirement. This is our happily ever after place. Louise was great, listening to all our quirks and providing any extras we needed to make our stay perfect. It was great dealing directly with her, realizing how special this is to her and appreciating sharing it for a while. She was quick to respond whenever we had questions. I would highly recommend this piece of paradise to anyone wanting to come to Destin."

  • Tuscan Luxury in Florida!

    "Tuscan Villa is a beautiful property. Destiny by the Sea was as prestigious as my girlfriend had described to me after her stay there last May. The laid brick roads and endless sunsets are something i will always remember. The home itself is in great shape and housed our family of 9 comfortably. The amenities were all there and everything was clean. The listing description was accurate and the photos accurately reflected the rentals appearance. Five Star was very responsive to the few questions we had during our stay. They answered most of our questions during the walk through they gave us of the property when we arrived. Recommend for anyone looking to stay on the beautiful Emerald Coast!"

  • Never wanted to leave!

    "Nothing beats the ocean breeze waking you up every morning and our party of ten loved every second of it! The awesome food at the Crab Trap was just a walk away, which was perfect when we weren't grilling ourselves! The fitness center on property was very convenient and overall, we all rate this vacation spot a 10/10. Cannot wait to spend our next vacation here!"

  • Let me help you -- You can stop looking now, stay here

    "What can I say? I am a person who agonizes over where to stay. I will spend hours on VRBO looking for what seems to be the best spot, reading reviews, mapping it out, etc. I settled on here and I am SO very thankful that I did. Our family had never been to Destin before, but since the winter has been cold we decided a quick 4 day get away was just what we needed. Due to the snow on our return route we ended up staying 8 days instead. We were "stranded in paradise". Mike was so accommodating, understanding, and kind. The 5th floor view from this condo is great. The ocean is in full view and the sunrises from the balcony are fantastic. The pool is beautiful to look at and the grounds at this complex are great. We loved being in the pool and feeling more like we were in a private oasis vs other pools we saw in the area that did not seem to have any landscaping to privatize them from the road. The walk to the beach is short and sweet along the wide paved walking track. The beach is private for the guests and we had it completely to ourselves during our Feb stay. The sunsets from the beach are breathtaking. We even saw dolphins right off shore one of the days. What I really liked about the location is it felt like we were in our own little world, and yet we could get in the car and in literally a few minutes be in the middle of everything in Destin. The condo was very clean and tastefully decorated. It didn't feel like a rental where the owners have cut costs. On the contrary it was nicely decorated with quality furnishings that were welcoming. The king bed was very comfortable. Just like home. It seriously felt like I was staying at a friend's condo for the week not some impersonal contact on the internet. We are already looking forward to returning. My husband and I can think of no place we'd rather stay in Destin ever. Even the small bonus of a private parking spot in the garage just made us feel so carefree and spoiled! Just this morning my sons were asking when we can return. I told the maybe Daddy would take me there for my birthday in October and they bemoaned that they needed to come too. Best, most relaxing, family vacation I can remember. We have done Disney with the kids twice in the last 4 years and never felt refreshed after a vacation. This was the complete opposite. I feel ready to take on the world now. Thanks Mike and family. We will be back!"
