About Rick or Debbie Scali or Billy Glasby

My wife Debbie and I started this business in 2002 because of the frustration we felt in trying to find Pet Friendly vacation accommodations. We have traveled with our pets for years. Some of the places we stayed were less than clean, and it was obvious by the smell that the accommodations allowed pets. We vowed when we started our vacation rental business that all of our homes would be pet friendly and all squeaky clean.

Other pet peeves (excuse the pun) is that many of the rental houses we stayed at did not have matching dishes or silverware or glasses and; the pots and pans were either dented, burned or missing. So we also vowed to include everything we could think of to furnish our kitchens including matching dishes, silverware, glasses, a full set of pots and pans, coffee maker, blender, and crock-pot. It now tickles us when we hear guests say they couldn't find anything we did not have.

We think you will find our prices very competitive to other rental homes, and we believe our quality and attention to detail exceeds our competition. I'm not referring necessarily to expensive furniture or furnishings, but rather to cleanliness, comfort and tasteful decorations; and not to mention our kitchens being fully equipped. The most common comment we receive from our guests is that our homes are much nicer than the pictures portray. The greatest compliment to our effort is the increasing number of repeat guests that have turned into great friends.

Rick or Debbie Scali or Billy Glasby purchased this house in 2006

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I stayed at Banana Cabana just last week. My guests included small children. The house was perfect for our needs and having the pool just outside the door was great. Rick was very cordial and helpful during our sta

  • 5 of 5

Banana Cabana is a wonderful vacation rental! Clean, beautifully decorated, located in a nice safe community. The walk to the beach is a straight 2/10th of a mile walk to Scenic 98, cross over two lanes of traffic on 98 and you are right at the private entrance to the beach. The beach was beautiful! We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Rick and Debbie.

The Banana Cabana was the perfect vacation retreat for our family of 12. Everything we needed was provided in this beautifully decorated, well laid out house. The private pool and short walk to the beach provided our grandkids everything they needed for a wonderful vacation. Thanks Rick and Debbie, for keeping your property spotless and in perfect condition.

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 kids)! The space inside was more then plentiful - we never felt crowded. The pool area was also spacious. The house is in tip top shape. The short walk to the beach was no problem. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance as well. We had a 5 star vacation thanks to the Banana Cabana!

Dear Rick and Debbie: Our vacation in beautiful Destin was absolutely capped by having the Banana Cabana as our home base! The kids and grandkids LOVED the pool, I loved the house and every thoughtful thing you put into it. We had all the room we needed, in a convenient location, and just hated leaving to go home! Our furbabies, Merlin and Elizabeth loved being with us on vacation as well! Thank you for thinking of EVERYTHING. We will definitely be back! Hugs, The Ellis Family from Frankfort, KY
