About John and Patricia Auletto

We are two hard working folks that grew up in New Jersey and moved out to California to follow our career paths about 20 years ago. We have two daughters, both live in California but have left the nest. Along with our 3 beautiful grandchildren we are hoping they will thoroughly enjoy vacationing in our new home. We like to travel, go on cruises, see new places. We love to fish and my wife and I are fishing partners. Love sitting on the beach and swimming in the warm crystal blue water. We also like to sit around the pool and mingle with the very nice people within our complex and visitors from just about everywhere. We are very excited to be hosting and utilizing our new vacation home.

John and Patricia Auletto purchased this Condo in 2017

Why John and Patricia Auletto chose Miramar Beach

We always wanted a condo in Ariel Dunes II. We have been looking for 3 years for the right unit to open up for sale and finally in October 2017 the magic happened. We love this property because it has a great view, nicely furnished and feels like our home away from home but is truly a vacation paradise for us. We love being close enough to the beach that is is a short walk over a freshwater fishing lake with lots of turtles and bass. But yet we don't get the noise from local traffic, very peaceful.

What makes this Condo unique

Being on the 8th floor is not too high and not too low but just perfect. it is just far away from the main road that we don't hear anything but the gentle waves of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The water is amazingly clear. A turquoise, blue and light green color, just amazing. The sand is fine and white. The Beach is always perfectly clean and well kept. Oh, and don't forget to watch and listen for all the military aircraft flying close to the gulf. You may even see the Blue Angels making their practice runs around the area. At night it seams like you can see west down the coast forever with all the lights from Destin sparkling. And don't forget those fantastic sunsets view able right from the balcony.

                                                                We spent Easter/spring break week here/2018. The owners were super easy to communicate back and forth with (and I had lots of questions, as it was a first time renting thru VRBO), they answered things quickly and easily and made the whole process simple! Nothing was oversold, all was as nice as the photos. This is not right on the beach, but literally a walk across a bridge and you are there! Nothing is right on the beach anyhow.... no matter where you pick to stay, you have a road to cross. The bunk beds in the hall, fit two teenage girls with no issue - and they loved the mini TV’s on each bunk! The complex itself is very nice, no issue getting in or out, and plenty of parking at complex. We went parasailing at Pompano Joes Parasailing - excellent time! We paid for the photo package ($35), and was not disappointed, they took tons of photos and very clear fun shots! We ate at Pompano Joe’s restaurant after, and it was fantastic and right on the beach.. our table overlooked the beach/ocean - goregous! We also ate one night at Grimaldi’s Coal Brick Oven Pizza - OUTSTANDING! Best pizza I’ve had in ages. Another evening was spent at Baytowne Wharf - a touristy spot with shops & restaurants. We also spent the morning before leaving town at Harborwalk/boardwalk, very nice place to walk around and see boats and many things, had lunch at Harry T’s/wonderful! Then headed back home from there. The water is just as you hear about, beautiful green/clear emerald water! Beaches are white powder sand.... just like you will find at Clearwater Beach! I would not hesitate to return to Miramar Beach area, or this condo again! Enjoyed every second! Bloomers - from Wisconsin!

                                                                Great, Relaxing, Enjoyable and Convenient Condo

                                                                John S.Ansonia, Connecticut

                                                                My wife and I just spent a month in this lovely condo and loved every minute of our time spent in Miramar Beach. Wow!! The ocean, lake and sunset views from both inside the condo and balcony on the eighth floor are right in front of you and are awesome. All this and to think you are only a short walk to the beach. The condo itself was clean, nicely decorated, very comfortable, well maintained and it comes with a large capacity washer & dryer and a well equipped kitchen. The new owners have made some very nice upgrades and are planning some additional upgrades that will really make this unit feel like your home away from home. The owners are also very attentive to every question or issue that might come up and they not only listen to you they act on it as soon as possible. The unit is located in a gated development, which is conveniently located not only in the Miramar Beach area but also South Walton and Destin. Lots of restaurants, grocery stores and of course shopping throughout this area. A trip down Route 30A is a must do.

                                                                John and Pat,

                                                                It was a real pleasure hosting your stay at Our Beach Getaway. Since you were our first guest since acquiring our home away from home we really enjoyed our communications with you and your wife Pat. We are committed to continually improve our property and hope you will return to stay again. I feel like we have made new friends rather than just renting you our home. Really great you took that trip down 30A, we agree, the scenery is awesome.

                                                                Thank you very much,
