About Suzanne Novak

Hello! My name is Suzanne Novak. As a busy Realtor with a hectic schedule, and a husband who coached in the NFL, we needed a place to escape the stresses of our jobs. One trip to Destin and we were hooked! The moment we set eyes on the Powdery White Sand Beaches, and the Crystal Clear waters of the Emerald Coast, we knew we would never need to go to Mexico again! We found our Caribbean at Crystal Beach and Grand Caribbean East.

Our stresses melt away when we are at this condo. Get up in the morning, enjoy your coffee on the balcony, check email with Free WiFi and then walk across the street to the beach!

We come back to our condo for a snack and then head back to the beach. Sometimes we shop and sight-see but we love to be perched on our chair enjoying the spectacular wild life show at hand. Dolphin, pelicans, and many different species of fish.

Suzanne Novak purchased this condo in 2013

Why Suzanne Novak chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

This View Is Spectacular! An end unit, on the corner, GCE #301 has an unobstructed view of the Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Grand Caribbean East is a perfect location just steps to the beach. It is an extremely well maintained building. With a hardworking property manager on sight, the pool and hot tub are clean, the grounds are impeccable and the landscape lush.

What makes this condo unique

The View, The View, The View! Grand Caribbean East 301 is an End unit. This means when you are on your balcony, you have total privacy and a great view of the Gulf and the strip. You can see the Gulf from the Kitchen, Sofa, and Bedrooms! Enjoy watching the dolphin swim by or the great fishing boats! There is always a beautiful show to be seen!

Great location, wonderful condo, terrific views.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Destin, and we are so glad we chose this condo. We visited with 5 adults, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The view of the ocean from the balcony is wonderful, and it is easy to go to the beach and run back to the condo for lunch or bathrooms, as there are no bathrooms on the beach. As other reviewers have said, the condo is fully equipped. We were lucky to be able to meet Suzanne in person and she went out of her way to be sure we were comfortable. Once we got our bearings, we came to appreciate how it is very close to Publix and Whole Foods, but away from the craziness that is Destin. There are no high rise condos nearby, so the beach is less crowded. We would recommend this VBRO to anyone. (PS Suzanne showed us her second unit just down the hall, which is a single bedroom with extra bunks. It was very nice also if you need more room for additional family members.)

Second vist

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Grand Caribbean East and next time we vacation in Destin we will make it a third. Suzanne is a super owner that wants to make sure that everything is just right. The condo is bright, clean, and tastefully decorated. It has anything you need, just bring yourselves and food and your all set. The nearby beach has really soft, brilliant white sand, and literally goes for miles. Hated to leave, but for sure we'll be back.

Such a beautiful view in a glorious location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything there was to offer in this condo. It was clean, very well stocked with all paper products, soaps, etc. The beds were all comfortable and so were the sofa's. There was also a great Movie DVD collection and a few CD's of music too. The view was spectacular and owner was very accommodating. We will be staying here again!

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The condo has a homey vibe with its warm colors and windows overlooking the ocean. The nautical theme of the condo brings a lively character to it that is enjoyable for the whole family and livens up the vacation experience. Everything is clean and easy to find. You'll never want to leave!

Grand Caribbean East 301 is located at Crystal Beach. Just across the street is The Emerald Coast including the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. This freshly decorated 2 bedroom condo sleeps 8, including a King size bed, 2 Queen beds and a Queen Pull Out Sofa. It is well decorated and features free Wi-Fi. The fully stocked kitchen makes eating in easy if that is what you choose to do. Grand Caribbean East 301 features a very Private wrap around balcony with a spectacular view of The Gulf of Mexico! Just minutes from all that Destin has to offer, but in a quiet locale for enjoying the peace and quiet. If you like fishing, golfing, swimming, boating, fun with the kids or enjoy shopping you will find it all in very close proximity.

Enjoy some of the great local restaurant in the area. You can actually walk to Camille's, Capt. Daves, Pompano Joes, The 790 Club, and The Crab Trap. Other great places are AJ's, Harry T's (watch the dolphin while you dine), Tuscany's Italian Bistro, Cuvee Bistro, Outback, Chili's, TGI Fridays, Red Lobster, Panera Bread, Cheeseburger in Paradise, and Cracker Barrel. Many have great Happy Hours where the appetizers are 1/2 off!

Big Kahuna’s Water Park is a favorite for Family Fun!

There are (10) Championship golf courses within a few miles of this location. All are public courses with full service facilities with a restaurant, practice range, rental clubs, professional lessons and pro shop.

Destin, Florida is known as the ”World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” & boasts of being home to the largest fishing vessel fleet in the state of Florida. Fish from the beach or boat. Water surrounds Destin with the intercoastal waterway to the north and Gulf on the south.
