Recent Scenic Gulf Drive West reviews
Beautiful, clean home close to the beach
"I had always wanted to stay in this home but it stays pretty booked in advance and we usually have to book last minute due our jobs. I lucked up and the home was empty the first week of May. It fully lived up to my hopes and expectations. It was our first time staying with Cottages near the Sea, but we will be renting from them from now on. Linsey is very easy to work with. The company has very reasonable rates for the area. The home was exceptionally clean. It was well furnished and beautifully decorated. I loved the porches and the Clipper Cove neighborhood is very quiet. I was worried about noise as the house backs up to a main street, but I was never once bothered by traffic. The house is next to the walkway to the beach and it also has an entrance onto Hutchinson directly from the backyard. The home is approximately two blocks from the beach and there is a public beach access directly at the end of the street. Great home and company!"

"Thanks to Jeff and his team for such an easy process and a great house for our week in Destin. We had 7 adults and 7 kids, so quite the houseful. This house is in a perfect location in terms of getting to the beach and to all points. It was great, as some of our younger guests could easily get back to the house for nap time while the parents were able to relax by the pool. We spent each night grilling out for dinner at the house, except for one night when we walked down to the Crap Trap. The bedroom arrangements worked out well; my advice would be to arrange who stays in which room prior to arrival. Be sure to note, the carriage house set up (which was very nice inside) does not have connecting stairs inside from the first floor to the second floor. No big deal for us, but just wanted to point out.
Our home was clean when we arrived, plenty of donuts (awesome!! thanks!), and had plenty of room for us. Agree with some of the other reviews, the kitchen/great room area was fantastic. As for activities, we spent a lot of time at the beach, then the pool, and then on the front porch at night. The neighborhood was quiet, which was great for our kids. The adults all enjoyed themselves in the evenings, but we were all pretty wiped out by the end of each day.
This vacation was to celebrate 4 40th birthdays with families; mission accomplished! Such a great setup for all of us. We all came from different places across the US, we're already talking about our next trip together. Thanks for making it easy!"

"My family and I thoroughly enjoyed vacationing here. Our only regret is that we didn't book it for a longer stay! Upon arrival, the condo was spotlessly clean. There's a small portion of the ocean that is able to be seen from the balcony, but for the great price, I can sacrifice full ocean view. Everything we needed was available in the condo and we can't wait to come back. Thanks for a great vacation!"

"This condo was exactly what we were looking for!!! My husband and I wanted a quiet place to stay but with all the conveniences of being close to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. This place was perfect! Just a 30 second walk from the beach and a short car or bike ride from everything else. The condo was very clean and equipped with EVERYTHING we needed! We even bought some fresh seafood from a local fish market and cooked dinner a couple of nights - the kitchen came with more than enough utensils and pots and pans for the preparation.
I would definitely recommend this condo and the beach!! Katherine was very easy to do business with and made the experience very enjoyable. We will definitely be looking to book this condo again for future trips. We couldn't have asked for anything better!"
