About Patricia D. LeMay

My husband and I live in the Northern Virginia area, in the Washington DC suburbs. I have been there my whole life, but my husband started off in Chicago. Since I retired, my hobby has become sculpting with clay. It keeps me smiling.

A few years ago, some of our relatives moved from our area to Destin, FL. We thought at the time that it was going to be a temporary move, however they like Destin so much that we were informed that they were never leaving. Now our family gathers in Destin every July. We have a wonderful time.

When we renovated this condo, we made sure it was a place we would like to spend our leisure time.

Patricia D. LeMay purchased this condo in 2010

Why Patricia D. LeMay chose Scenic Gulf Drive Central

This property is spacious and up-to-date. It has all the conveniences of home. It is close to restaurants, shopping and other points of interest. The discount mall is but a short drive. The beach and the bay are across the street. It's on the first floor, making it simple to walk a dog, bring in suitcases and groceries and come back from the beach quickly and easily.

What makes this condo unique

You can relax on the patio and watch your children in the pool or the hot tub in front of you. In your living room, you are only a couple of minutes from the beach and playing in the Bay. You can walk to near by restaurants.

Dirty, old floors, sliding glass door doesn't lock, no deadbolt on front door, not completely renova

  • 1 of 5

Love the keyless, but that was it! As soon as we opened the door we noticed the disgusting floors!! They were dirty and worn out, then sliding glass doors do NOT lock so the owners solution was a wooden stick in the track, and the sliding glass door didn't close all the way and did I mention the unit is on the first floor!?! The tv was not hanging on the wall, but the tv brackets were, very frat house looking. After calling about these issues maintenance came and left a note saying that the owner knows about the condition of the floors and that he was so sorry, then he wrote the instructions about using the stick as our lock. Finally, the next day they came to clean the floors and they used only water to clean the floor and rinsed the rag out in my kitchen sink and then didn't clean the sink! Disgusting! They also came days later and hung the tv up on brackets that are bigger than the tv!We were vacationing with three other couples that rented 3 other units and their units were very nice and had locking doors! I forgot to mention that there was no deadbolt on the front door either! I will never rent this unit again, but I would stay in Emerald Waters again but obviously in a different condo..I sent pictures to the owner

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This condo is lovely; Clean, well maintained with a contemporary style, comfortable and plenty of room. With 2 adults and 2 small doggies we had plenty of space and were pleasantly surprised that both full bathrooms were so spacious. This property is 'exactly' as presented in the VRBO photos and descriptions. We had a great week there; would vacation at Miramar again and would stay at this same condo as well.
