Why Rebecca Callaway chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We visited Destin last September and fell in love with the area! So, we decided to buy our vacation home here! You will love the beaches, and shopping and restaurants!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Atlanta, GA



Incredible



The first thing we noticed upon entering the Chilley Gilley is the immaculate decor! The decor was rivaled only by the comfort of the entire home. I have traveled the world by plane (Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, etc.) and though we actually drove from Atlanta to Destin, this was possibly the best vacation ever and that's because of the comfort of the home. Our trip was in celebration of our mom's 85th birthday, and the home and the beautiful beaches and area of Destin made it a momentous and memorable occasion! We are already making plans to return to Destin and will certainly check to see if our home away from home (Chilley Gilley) is available!

florida vacation on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

we try to get away with our entire family for one trip a year. this includes grandpa/grandma, two adult married children/wives and five grandkids all 7 years and under for ages. this year's trip to Despin was a first for us to enjoy the pristine beaches in that area and very comfortable accommodations at Chilly Gilley's.

the rental property is well maintained and very user friendly - including many items that can be used on the beach such as shovels, buckets, flotation devices, etc. the host family was very thorough in their communication to us concerning expectations and what was included or not. they even surprised us with a nice welcome gift basket that is always a nice touch.

overall we were very pleased with our experience and it starts with having a reliable place to stay that is nicely maintained. very friendly towards kids and has a wonderful pool area that is shared with other rental units on the property.

It Was Too Short

  • 4 of 5

Vacationing at the beach is lots of fun, but that only contributes to half of the stay. The other half is determined by where you choose to stay. This year we chose to stay at Chilley Gilley. Initially, I was hesitant because you never know if what you see on the internet is what you'll get. I am pleased to say that the home did meet our expectations. We had such a great time the comment was made, "I don't even need to go to the beach, I 'll just have a vacation get away right here." Understandably so, in addition to being located within walking distance of the beach, we were near the very relaxing pool and hot tub. My family is already planning to return. Our stay was just too short! So why not rate Chilley Gilley a 5 star? There could have been a few minor improvements, but overall a great stay that made for a great vacation! Thanks Becky!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Chilley Gilley is a beautiful home with all the necessities to make it feel like your home. My family and I enjoyed our stay and the home. It's very close to the pool where my 4 year old learned to swim!! The beach isn't far and the trolley that is offered to take you to the beach is a very convenient service. This home is wonderful for vacation with extended family, it has room for everyone. Beautiful home and gorgeous beach=amazing vacation!

Destin vacation

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the chilley gilley! We had a great time. Rebecca answered all my questions and quickly too. Her home is beautiful and a very short walk to the pool. The trolley was convienent as well. Our parents came along and hey had a little harder time with the trolley and walking to the beach but the kids and my husband and I had no troubles at all.
