About Sylvia Wahoske

Our family consider ourselves Big Sky Cajans. Originally from Montana taken to the deep south of Louisiana and beautiful Virginia with my husband's pulp and paper career the white sands of Destin, FL have found a way to create a tug of war on our hearts between retiring on Flathead Lake, Montana or the sugary white sands of Destin, FL. Hopefully, if you stay at our condo you can help us decide on the retirment vote. We hope you enjoy our beach home get away as much we do. Never tire of looking at the Gulf view from the balcony.

Sylvia Wahoske purchased this condo in 1999

Why Sylvia Wahoske chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Fell in love with the warm Gulf water and white sand. Loved the balconies off every room giving Surfside condo's plenty of natural lighting. We hope to retire here someday.

What makes this condo unique

Surfside's unique feature in having having balconies off every room in all of its condos. Our condo on the 9th floor offers a spectaular view fo the Gulf Mexico plus it is on the pool side. Full view balconies makes it easier to keep on eye on older teenage children that you might allow to go to the pool without mom & dad. We never tire of the view! Love the heated outdoor swimming pool one of the few in Destin with hot tubs.. Makes for comfortable year around swimming. Also, one of the few condos with saunas. The onsite restaurant & bar a big plus. It is just a push of the elevator button away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am pleased that your lst experience renting vrbo meet your expectations since you were already familiar with our resort building. My unit is Gulf side not Gulf front view but the savings is significant when renting a weeek. Many of my renters like seeing the poolside in addition to the Gulf in case some of their party is down swimming. You can still keep an eye on them from the balcony or call them up to dinner. Perfect for those with teenagers or if some of your party needs to stay in the shade of the balcony.

Great Ocean Views!!

  • 4 of 5

When you open the door and walk in, you immediately see the ocean view. It is amazing!! The unit had almost everything we needed. Their was no trashbags or toilet paper in the unit upon arrival so we had to go get those, but not a problem. The toilet paper holder I guess was broken in the second bathroom, it was not there.The bedroom closet doors on the right were rusted shut but we got some WD-40 and they opened by the end of the trip. There was also 4 light bulbs burnt out of the light fixture above dining room table but we replaced those as well. We didn't spend much time in the unit because the beach was so amazing. Clear water and soft velvet sand. We also spent time at the pool which was great if you have smaller children. We would stay again for sure. Thanks

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the Surfside Resort experience. It is a great place for families and has one of the best pool areas for smaller children. Living in Virginia I am dependent on my cleaning crew to notice burned out lights & sticky sliding closet doors. Just had Seaview Glass of Destin install a new track for the bedroom mirror doors to correct the door problem. My unit at 907 Surfside is one of the favorite floor plans guests prefer to rent because of the larger 2nd bedroom. Look forward to having you stay again as a returning renter. Sylvia Wahoske-Owner

Owner's Response: Glad you & your family enjoyed their stay at our condo. It is hard to beat the views from each room. One of the reasons that I have so many returning renters. Most of my summer weeks are usually booked up by January & February of each year. Owner-Sylvia Wahoske

This condo was nicely decorated, well equipped, and great access right by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Sylvia, the owner of the property, was easy to contact and always helpful. The first day we arrived the staff was helpful as well. We even met the lady who cleans the condo we stayed at. She was helpful several times throughout the week. The condo has beautiful views. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony which has access from any room. The split floor plan have privacy, and the washer and dryer in the unit was wonderful to have to use. It was also nice that Sylvia leaves extra beach chairs for use as well. I would recommend this condo to anyone. It was wonderful!

Beautiful location and beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-kept property with a great location that is close to the beautiful white sands of the Gulf coast. Our family loved eating our meals on the patio enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean. The pool and hot tub were relaxing in the evening before retiring. As mentioned in a previous review, there is a musty odor that is noticeable when getting off the elevator and extends into the condo. But my experience with any property that lies close to water is that this is very common due to the humidity and moist climate. Thanks, Sylvia, for sharing your condo with us for a memorable and relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: I strife very hard to keep my unit clean. However, you did not let me know about the items that needed to be cleaned until you were back home & notified me by e-mail. Otherwise I would have called the cleaning lady back to the unit the day of your arrival to immediately to take care of the things that you had mentioned to me in your e-mail. Sylvia Wahoske-Owner
