About shannyn

We are locals and have lived here since the early 1980's. We have seen a lot of growth and believe there is no better place to be.

shannyn purchased this condo in 2011

Why shannyn chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

We choose to purchase this condo along the beach becuase we feel this is the best place to come and get away from our very busy life. We live just minutes away but don' t see any reason to travel to any other beaches when we have the Best Beaches in the world at our fingertips! Why go anywhere else.

Our condo is just steps from the beach, and easy accesses to Pompano Joes for lunch or dinner (on the Travel Channel)

What makes this condo unique

I am a local real estate agent (selling only investment properties); when i saw this listing come on the market i knew i had to have it! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION (and the view)...The Gulf view is amazing! However, the property needed a lot of love which we were willing to give! We replaced about everything in the condo from new paint, flooring to new bedcovers and cookware. It is now our home away from home and we love it!

Our family of 5 plus our Minnie schnauzer stay out our unit about once a month (we are locals).

The kids love the pool and easy walk to the beach. I love that i can sit on the balcony and watch the kids at the pool and still have a great view of the beach! Abby (our Minnie Schnauzer) loves to people and dog watch from the balcony! My hubby is happy with the fact we are all happy and he can watch his sports on the Flat Screen TVs.

Hope this helps paint a picture of the vacation waiting for you. Truly gulf front benefits for gulf view price!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family of 5 (3 kids and a husband) just had our spring break at this cute condo. First thing I noticed was that this unit was clean and in perfect shape it also offered better views that I had expected. We have stayed at Summerspell before but this time I was able to watch the dolphins as I made breakfast for the kids each morning…from the kitchen! I also enjoyed the fact that I could send the kids down to the pool where I could still see them; while I sunbathed on the balcony with a view of the beach. No need for me to go sit around the pool when I came here for the beach! Of course my husband really enjoyed watching the flat screen TV. in both livingroom and master bedroom. It was also nice that when we needed a break from the sun; the play station was available for them.

and yes…..beach accesses was easier than ever! Took us 1 min. to get to the beach.

A little something for everyone!

thanks for letting us use your little beach getaway!

The condo was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Destin was awesome. We are from Oklahoma and the beach is our favorite place to go. Working with Shannyn was a great experience. The location of the property is perfect and our view from the balcony was spectacular. We were able to bring our dog Buster and he was the most popular dog at the beach. I would definitely stay again. Thanks again Shannyn for sharing your condo with us it was a great time for all...

Wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at the property. It was very well equipped with all amenities used for cooking. Sitting out on the balcony every morning and every evening was one of our favorite times each day. Did have a problem with finding parking every night. Would be nice if each condo had an assigned parking spot. Only negative problem we had was we were notified while we were out that our dog, a tiny toy fox terrier, was barking which we found uncharacteristic of him. When we arrived back the neighbors confirmed it wasn't our tiny dog. It was a big, deep bark from a larger dog from a neighboring condo. Other than the one little hiccup it was a great place to stay with very easy beach access.

Owner's Response: After speaking to the guests she said 203 is a great unit and everything was fine there. You have been very easy to work with and most accommodating. I love the view from the unit and we had a great 2 weeks. When I gave my rating, I was thinking of the whole place. As I told you in my email, the chairs near the pool were getting moldy. Additionally, the washer and drier look rusty, although they work fine. Paint is coming up on the stairs and back entrance. All signs of age and weathering. So I used 4 as my response. ___________________________ Feedback on the status of the property from owner:....Pool side chairs are in the processes of getting cleaned. Its a matter of finding time between guests to get this done and they are cleaned 2 to 3 times a year. Sunscreen that rubs off onto the chairs from the guests is a constant challenge and can make the pool chairs look dirty. Washer/Dryer are located in a covered room but are still exposed to the salt air. Salt air is hard on the cosmetic part appliances. Summerspell has just been through many recent renovations and is looking better each year. Owners have spent a lot of money (over 80k) to get Summerspell looking its best for its guests. We have just completed the following: Resurfaced new pool also added (new pool tile), New Pavered walkways and entrance Painted pool deck, Painted first floor patios, New A/C platforms and relining A/C lines so each owners/guests air conditioning can work efficiently,Waterproofing the balconies and walk ways, New railings on stairs and balconies More work still to come but to avoid, interrupting the guests stay we have to do the work in phases. Thank you again.
