About Michele


My husband and I love the beach. When we decided to purchase a home at the beach we fell in love with this home. Our children now are older enough to appreciate our home and realize how lucky we are to have the best beach house. We would love for u to visit our home and make your own family memories too

Michele purchased this house in 2005

Why Michele chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

The location of our home is prefect.

30 yards to the beach

No streets to cross

Walk way is private

Beautiful views from the home

But most of all the location is easy access to resturants, shopping, theme parks etc

The home is 4/3 + loft (5th bedroom)

Sleeps 13

3 Floors

3 bedrooms on floor 1

1 bedroom on floor 2 with livingroom, kitchen, dinning area

Guestbook comments from the owner


On behalf of my whole family, we wanted to thank you. Your house is beautiful and it served our needs perfectly. I really appreciated how quickly you fixed the small plumbing problem The neighborhood and pool are very nice and well maintained. We got lucky and had really great weather so the beach was perfect. I would definitely recommend your home to other people.

Thank you again,

My Favorite Location in Destin

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed the home and location. The home is clean and very well cared for. Working with Michelle was delightful.

Restaurants in walking distance was a great gifted. Especially for the teenagers.

We will be back

Beach Lover

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our multi-generational family vacation in A Paradise Hotel. It was great having three different levels so each family could have their own space. The location was like a quiet neighborhood yet very convenient to shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, etc... The walk to the beach was short enough to not be too difficult for small children. When the kids got tired we put them down for naps and afterward they enjoyed the neighborhood pool, which was a short walk from the house. Everything was in working order, clean and comfortable. We would definitely rent this house again!

A Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a marvelous time in this house by the Ocean. The neighborhood is quiet and separated from the activities of Destin, yet the beach or the pool is only a two to three minute walk from the front door. Not to far too carry supplies and set ups to the beach each morning. The beach itself was never overcrowded, plenty of room for all. The pool area was in great shape and offered a nice getaway from the beach for those too young to stay at the beach all day. The city of destiny was readily available including a great shopping mall less than a mile away. Grocery stores were about as close and a Walmart for supplies was just about 10 minutes away - depending upon traffic. The house itself was a joy. We had my wife and myself and our Children and their families. We used every bedroom and the loft area with no problems. Everything you might want is there from the solitude of the porch, to the TV's in every room, along with WIFI and internet service. The family area on the second floor fit us all. I thoroughly enjoyed the location - It was all they said it would be! I highly recommend this rental.
