About Suzette

We bought this town home because of location with the beaches across the street, the best unobstructed Gulf View from master balcony, water views from all the rooms and proximity to Golf Courses is central. Personal outdoor shower to rinse of the white quartz sand, Dine outside with ocean breezes on the balcony with my family is a favorite, walking on the beach, or have lunch or dinner at Pompano Joe's then walk home! The volleyball and outdoor music nearby makes this a great place for all ages. Relaxing by the pool or enjoying playtime with the kids is always a must while staying here! We never have enough time and like to extend it when possible. Our guests come first which means I like to update then have family over when the work is done. We're from Texas and read Destin ( ranked No.2) compared to Hawaii (ranked no. 1 ) regarding beaches. Which meant, we kept extending our stays and vacations here. I was offered a job transfer / move and could not resist the gorgeous Sugar beach. Home is Texas but Florida is the kiddos birthplace. Which means, we will always hold both states very near and dear to our families' hearts. I am confident you will be 'smitten' with Miramar Beach, also!

Suzette purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Suzette chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Location, Location, Location...this central area makes easy access to San Destin, Boat Slip just past SanDestin Marina, (Miramar beach is located between Destin and SanDestin, Seaside within 20-25 minutes drive. Community Pool right outside the door just steps away! Nice to have with sunny days to work on our tan or cool off after the beach. Walks along the beach or strolling on the sidewalk with ocean breezes. The number of close restaurants, internet coffee shops, and beach make our family time a relaxing time. My family loves having breakfast, lunch, and dinner with the unobstructed views. Gulf Views from every room give a peaceful, calming atmosphere. It seems so quiet at times, so we decide to have everyone over for dinner! Extra seating outside on the balconies. Golf is less than a mile to 3 miles at the Golf Garden, Emerald Bay, Regatta/ Kelly Plantation, or SanDestin.

What makes this townhome unique

I take personal pride in the home because of the length of time its been receiving return guests, the upgrades we continually do to keep it fresh, and our great staff help us keep it all going! We enjoy the pool after a day in the sun at the beach across the street. We Love to eat on the balcony, watch the view with no obstructed buildings on the East side, try to find time for a good book & coffee in the am, special dinners ( gotta have our fresh Fish), and catch up on sleep! I wish we had more time here...I am certain you will enjoy your friends and family, too! This is my kiddos favorite home to play in the pool and at the beach because there are so many options for fun on Miramar Beach! YOLO board, golf cart, scooter, kayak, beach volleyball, jet skis, parasailing, wind surfing, etc! All this across the street , almost in our front yard...the beach!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Tommy and Jimmie have been staying with us since 2009. It's such a pleasure to have them twice a year! They've made friends on each visit, relax, unwind and allow us to handle the details when necessary! I look forward to catching up with this sweet couple who bless our home and our lives for the past 8 years. I add special items for their stay each time before arrival. For example, maintenance installed custom spring hinges on the front door, recently. So, it won't stay open but closes automatically (when not held ajar), keeps the home cooler in summer or warmer in winter, and less chance of a little critter can fly in. Thanks to our "on the spot " maintenance crew! And, Tommy and Jimmie, we'll miss you...till next time! Mgmt

We had a great time. The house was clean and comfortable. It was only a short walk to the beach that was not overly crowded. We loved it.
