About Michelle

We are from St. Louis, Missouri, and we think Destin has the best beaches in Florida.

Michelle purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

Our home has everything you need to make it your home away from home. It has an awesome swimming pool, it is steps from the beach, close to great restaurants and shopping, and will provide you with a wonderful vacation spot.

What makes this house unique

Close to the beach, yet close to restaurants and shopping. Convenient access to one of the best community pools in Destin.

A beautiful large family or group vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a large home for our family vacation that included 7 adults, 2 teenage girls and 4 grandchildren ages from 8 months to 5 years old. I searched through many homes in the Destin area to find the right # and sizes of bedrooms and beds. Good photos of the home and bedrooms were what sold me on Michelle's home and we were not disappointed. The bunk beds were perfect for the girls and the 4 and 5 year old boys loved the bunk beds. Then each of the adults got a full sized bed with extra room for a baby and a 3 year old on sleeping chairs and a crib. The pool was a 1 minute walk around the corner to cool off in after a day at the beach. Pompano Beach is an easy 15 minute walk or you can get a ride on the trolley to carry your chairs and toys. If you learn the back streets and traffic patterns you can get to the shopping places, Baytowne Wharf and dolphin tours in under 20 minutes most of the time. Grocery shopping at Whole Foods and Publix are just 5 minutes away. If you are willing to get there by 8:30 in the morning to get a parking place and set up your tent there are some beautiful public beaches east on Scenic Dr.

The gated community added a layer of security for all the toys and stuff we left on the front patio over night.

Thanks again Michelle for sharing your home with our family. Our memories will last a lifetime!

The place was awesome! Our whole family (great-gramma, grandparents, three married children with young babies and two single adult children!) wastogether. It was clean, roomy, up-to-date, and cozy! The place sparkled when we arrived! There was an issue with the fridge that we couldn't even "feel" because tMichelle had everything covered! There were plenty of bedrooms (all with televisions and small walkin closets that held port-a-cribs) which each family unit could retreat to as needed. Every cooking item under the earth was available for our shrimp boils etc. yet, in spite of its roominess we all felt snuggled together in our own vacation world! Pool is fantastic - perfect for babies and tossing the football! The beach - well - was the incredible warm, soft sand, great waves - that we had hoped for! Enjoy this place as we did!

Very nice vacation home for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in this lovely home. There were two families including five little kids ages 3 and under. The house was perfect for all of our needs and suited our multiple families very nicely. The bedrooms are situated on three different floors which is very nice when you have lots of young children. It helped to provide a quiet atmosphere for sleeping. The house was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was nicely equipped, the pool is a quick walk and the beaches are very close. We had a wonderful week and plan to return to this home again!
