About Brenda Bender

Our Story

Over 25 years ago we started coming to Green Reef, it was love at first site! Walking along the shore we promised ourselves that one day we would own a townhome in Green Reef. We have looked at property from Panama City to Pensacola, never finding anything quite like our beloved Green Reef. Then in March 2004 we got a call from our Realtor that a town home in Green Reef had come onto the market.

We drove down on a Saturday and had an offer in on Monday. Our dream became a reality on April 30, 2004.

We have gone to great lengths to try to make our home comfortable and inviting, personally selecting each item. We want you to enjoy your stay and have a great time. We also hope you will treat our home with the same respect and care that you would your own or a best friend’s home.

We know that accidents can happen and if you have a “mishap” please let our house manager know so that we can take care of any problems. We would much prefer to bring in the maids to clean up a spill; or the handyman in to fix or replace something broken than let it go for our next guests to find and become unhappy about. Thank you in advance for taking care of our home.

Sincerely, Bill & Brenda Bender

Brenda Bender purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Brenda Bender chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

The beaches in Destin are some of the most beautiful beach anywhere. The beaches of most of the Panhandle are composed of smooth silky white sand that came from the wearing down of the Appalachian mountains. The beaches of Destin have been voted as the 'Best in the South' and one of the top three 'Favorite Family Vacation Destinations' by the readers of Southern Living.

What makes this townhome unique

Destin is known as the 'World's Luckiest Fishing Village' due to the large number of trophy fish caught off its shores. Destin is known for having the largest charter-boat and private fishing fleet in Florida. Everything from sport fishing charters for the serious fisherman; party boat charters; romantic sunset or dolphin cruises. Watersports are abundant on the Emerald Coast. Destin offers everything from Pontoon, Powerboat, Hobie Cat, and Sailboat rentals. So whether you want to charter a boat for a few hours to try your hand at catching dinner or want to take the kids on a Dolphin cruise, there is something for every member of your family or group. Green Reef 19 is centrally located to just about everything you would need, from groceries, the Silver Sand Outlet Mall, antiques, bars, restaurants and two marinas. There are several (Crab Trap, Captain Dave's, Kenny D's), restaurants that are within walking distance. Others a short drive such as the wonderful Marina Cafe, Dewey Destin's and Pompano Joe's are but a few of the wide variety of dining experiences in Destin. We have a Welcome Book in the town- home that offers additional suggestions (from us & our guests) of things to do, places to go and more restaurants.

You will never lack for something to do in Destin, but don’t miss just sitting on the deck with your favorite cool beverage and watching the sunset. Nothing is more relaxing than hearing the waves and watching the ocean as it turns from gold to silver.

We welcome you to Green Reef 19/Dolphin's Run, it will be one of the best vacations you will ever have. Just read what some of our 90 guests have said over the last decade!

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We absolutley loved staying at Green Reef 19! The accomodations were above and beyond our expectations and conveniently located! We woke up at 6 every morning to watch the dolphins and they were there without fail! It was spectacular and we decided this would be a place we would come back over and over because we were so pleased with the amenities and the bargain! We love this place and could not have asked for anything better!

Loved the condo, location, amenities, we loved it all!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs etc. being available. I loved the quality of the linens. We really enjoyed the outdoor room with the grill, the curtains for privacy and candles. The balconies off each level were perfect. The basement level kitchen made a great extra room and super easy for grilling. The ice machine was a plus. There are some places to eat in walking distance. We loved our stay.

Magical!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a magical place!! Just saying that our family had a wonderful time here isn't even close enough to how we felt here and seeing my grandkids eyes light up when they walked in the house and then explode when they walked out on the back patio!!!

The memories we have are priceless. The weather worked out great for us.

No one was ready to leave. Goodbye beautiful white sand between our toes!!

Thank you for sharing your home with us Brenda! We were Blessed!
