Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-12)

Wow, this is the place you've been looking for!! You really dont find this level of space and privacy in a beach neighborhood, but with our extra large lot and an undeveloped lot next door, it has a very secluded feel. Close to the beach and all the attractions around Destin! Beachy decor, Private pool, spa/hottub, wetbar in adjacent gazebo. Cabana with toilet and shower next to the pool. Big lot, lots of space, multiple decks, custom privacy fence, --Perfect for your group. If you are planning a multi-family vacation, you will not be on top of each other here. You will love the peace and privacy and space this location offers.

This beautiful home is close to everything in Destin. Just 300 yards to the Gulf (4 minute walk) and located on a very quiet residential street.

With about 3300SF, and a lot that is 60% bigger than typical Crystal Beach lots, you will not feel cramped in with your party. Master bedroom has king bed private bath with jetted tub. Custom 6 foot privacy fence surrounding back yard provides unparalled peace and privacy. (Adjacent lot is undeveloped and natural) Five decks give you lots of outdoor space. After a bizarre freezae in Jan 2014 we had to replace all of our Palm Trees, which were just planted in Jan 2015, which adorn a spacious open grass area. Room for the kids or adults to throw frisbees, footballs, etc. Outside cabana bathroom.

The property may be rented without the apartment in non high season times. The apartment has a full kitchen, new cabinets with granite tops, and new appliances. Its got a private bedroom and a full living room. Its awesome down there.

Custom privacy fence completly encloses the large yard. Enjoy the cool Gulf breezes sitting on the shaded deck while watching your kids play in the pool. Within walking distance to the new Destin Commons shopping / dining outdoor mall. Also, a church neaby has an excellent new playground for the little ones.

About Rob Gresham

I love Destin and can't wait to retire here and fish and golf my life away. Our property is awesome. Unparalled privacy and space. Custom fence encloses the back yard surrounded by 12 palm trees. Talk about a place to chill.

Rob Gresham purchased this house in 2003

Why Rob Gresham chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

Very short walk to the beach- about 3 - 4 minutes. Very peaceful street and our property is 60% bigger than most lots.

What makes this house unique

You wont feel cramped in with your group. Grandparents stay in the lower apartment often. The perfect extended family vacation.

Wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property over spring break for our extended family and had a wonderful time. It was a wonderful property with a beautiful pool and hot tub. It comes with very complete kitchen appliances to wonderful beach chairs provided for use. We had a great time and would rent again in the future. We had a great time at this home.

Fantastic beach getaway - you'll forget what day it is!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and our two little Boston terriers stayed at this house for a week-long beach getaway and loved every second (very hard to leave). The house was clean and tidy, and the owners graciously had all of the everyday household items stocked and ready to use when we arrived. We have stayed at houses in the past where they did not provide towels, toilettry items, etc, but the owners of this location were more accommodating than any others that we have dealt with in the past. The back yard was equivalent to our own private resort, and there were days where we never left the house. The fenced in yard provided us with peace of mind whenever we had to let our dogs out - very hard to find other properties with this kind of space. This property is conveniently located to shopping and the best restaurants in town. Less than one block away from the beach - we could walk there in 2 minutes. Although it was just the two of us, the house had enough seating (on couches and at tables) for a large group, and enough chairs and seating by the pool to host a large party (the gazebo is awesome). The house also has an amazing downstairs appartment, but we did not need to use it while we were there.

Overall, this property was worth every penny and we have already started to talk about making another trip back to this location next year. We can't say enough about how pleasant it was to deal with the owners - they responded to us within minutes if we ever needed anything, or had questions. We have had different experiences when dealing with property management companies in the past.

We would recommend this property to any couples/families/groups who are looking for a relaxing getaway, and we are confident that you will forget what day it is while you are there - we miss it already!

Not a good place for a family vacation.

  • 1 of 5

From the first day we arrived I was on the phone with Rob trying to figure out why the pool wasn't working properly. I get it that you're not there to handle it, but after 3 days of of pool companies every day telling me the same problem I thought you would of fixed it? The pool light from day one never worked and was told from Rob he would have to fix it after summer? I couldn't let the kids swim at night as it wasn't safe for them. I did come home with a ear infection due to the pool water looking like milk. I will send pictures of it.

Owner's Response: We have like other owners occasional system issues that must be repaired as they develop, even in peak season. This was the case here, a pool valve with an internal failure was not found by our pool company (Destin Pools- has been in business over 20 years) after several visits that they thought was another issue. Concerning the pool light, we have deck lighting, which was fully functional and also motion detecting lights as a backup and it's ridiculous / malicious to misrepresent that there was no lighting and unsafe and couldn't use the pool- that right there shows the mentality of the guest, which is what you get when to rent to the public. We tend to any issues that develop with long established local contractors and I am personally involved with rectifying any issues as soon as we are Notified. Sorry this person was impacted by a system failure, but gulf atmospheric conditions are harsh on systems and occasionally need repaired when they fail.

This property is the ultimate vacation experience! The property is within short walking distance from the beach, shopping and dining. The comfort and privacy of this property is as good as it gets. In my opinion if this property doesn't meet or exceed all of your vacation expectations you probably need to just stay home because no vacation property will satisfy you. The private pool and Jacuzzi are wonderful.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed our spring break vacation week here and this property was simply the perfect fit for every need or want we had. The house had any and all for any need someone may have, from spacious, to kitchen, pool activities and beach activities. The house itself was well appointed and decor was appealing. There was not one thing we had to go out and get for our stay or any beach fun. The owners are super accommodating and was a pleasure to deal with. The pool and spa were very inviting and enjoyed on a daily basis. The owner provides a beach dolly with chairs and sand toys making it a very easy little 1/2 bock or so walk to the the beach. It was an easy walk and even for me as I have partial physical disabilities. We are already making plans for our next stay here in September. We have def found our special spot for our future Destin travels.
