About Dan or Heidi

Heidi and I have been happily married for 25 wonderful years. we have four wonderful children. We love Destin and all of the outdoor entertainment that the area offers. Great beaches and great food! We have many friends in Destin with whom we enjoy our weekends and holidays.

Dan or Heidi purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Dan or Heidi chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

We fell in love with Destin when we first visited in 2001. Consequently, we purchased a townhome at Summerhouse in Destin, and hired local property managers to manage our property. Our local managers are instructed to keep the property in tip top shape and ensuring 100% satisfaction to our guests. Most of our business is repeated business and word of mouth referrals. We look forward to serving all of your vacation needs in Destin.

What makes this townhome unique

When we started looking for vacation property in Destin, we wanted a location that was friendly, family oriented, clean, well manicured and close to the beach. By sheer luck, we ran into Summerhouse and we felt this was a well kept secret in Destin. Summerhouse townhomes is a beach subdivision with only 29 units shaped in the letter U with the tips of the letter U facing the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so excited about our townhome! It is the perfect home away from home! The pool is gorgeous, the townhome has lots of space & is nicely furnished with anything you could need. You will not find more beautiful beaches!

  • 4 of 5

Our townhouse was 10 mins walking distance from the beach. Close to other fun and food. Pool was clean and neighbors were friendly. The townhouse was clean and had more than enough room for everyone (6adults) Owners are friendly and prompt at responding to any concerns. *Remember to pack all toiletries and cleaning supplies

Not what we expected - in a bad way

  • 1 of 5

Living room photos on the site is NOT what is really in the rental. Outdated furniture, hole in the couch, sleeper sofa is unfit to sleep upon. Bathroom sliding tub door falls off the track. Sheets paper thin. So disappointed that it has turned us off on using home away. The owners were nice but the rental was in such need of updating that it was embarrassing for us to stay there!

Owner's Response: Unfortunately this was a double booking where we had to accommodate the guest at another unit at a much discounted price. We regret not meeting the standards of this guest despite every attempt to please.

The renters were nice and responsive to calls. We arrived and there was a washer in the middle of the floor in the dining room. We were not on the beach as advertised we where two blocks from it and the ocean view was from the upstairs bathroom window only.
