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!

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 Outdated furniture, hole in the couch, sleeper sofa is unfit to sleep upon.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.

Will return!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Summerhouse Unit 1. We had an amazing vacation, and this unit met all of our needs. It was clean, and well-kept. We really enjoyed the large yard area for the kids. One tip I would offer is to bring a collapsible wagon or some way to transport beach sullies as there is a few blocks walk to get to public beach access. Of course, there is free parking at the beach if you'd rather drive. Dan was responsive to our questions and gave us clear and easy instructions. Thanks for the great stay!

off season stay/ inaccurate address on VRBO site

  • 3 of 5

The owner was responsive and helpful, the problems I encountered were related to inaccurate/duplicate address of unit on VRBO site and difficulty with Home Away customer support telephone. The owner did compensate us. The unit was well stocked, cleaned with exception of stained carpet areas upstairs, that was being replaced when we left. Unfortunately, the pool area was also closed for repairs the entire week we were there, but repairs were completed to the pool the day we left. The unit was comfortable inside; plus outside downstairs patio and upstairs deck was pleasant with open space to enjoy. The beaches are beautiful with numerous 3 story condo units lining the beach. The townhouse is conveniently located within a few blocks to the beach and stores, yet feels more private and quiet as off the main street.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guest at Summerhouse Townhomes unit #1. The duplicate address at the Home Away website is being corrected at this moment and should be cleared within 72 hours According to VRBO customer service and moreover, the carpets upstairs were replaced by new hardwood floors to avoid any future stains. Unfortunately, we have no control over the pool repairs and we don't get heads-up information about those repairs however, I do know that their attempt was to finish the repairs before the season had started. We apologize for any inconvenience and customer satisfaction is our number one goal. It was great having you and please do come and visit us again.
