About Amber Sweeney

Nick and Amber are an active duty military family delighted to share their beach vacation home with you and your family!

Why Amber Sweeney chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

Having traveled to beaches all over the world, we can attest that that the beautiful sugar sand beaches of the Emerald Coast are some of the best anywhere. The waves are family friendly and the water is warm for many months of the year!

What makes this house unique

The Crystal Beach neighborhood of Destin, Florida is in the perfect location, close to everything and steps away from the beach and yet it has a friendly, quiet neighborhood feel.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all - large pool, hot tub, playhouse, golf cart and all the amenities. Very close to the beach also. The heated pool is perfect for the days when the ocean isn't so warm. The house is fully stocked with everything you could want - the owners thought of everything! This was a perfect vacation home for our family. The house is spacious, comfortable and clean. Overall we had an amazing experience!

Awesome vacation rental - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

The Drag Inn Fly is the perfect place to stay for a vacation to the Emerald Coast. The location is amazing, the house new, and clean, and cute, and spacious, and comfortable, and the pool is a true highlight. The pool and hot tub are heated, and its salt water, so better for your skin and not covered in heavy chemicals. Its a short walk to the beach. The Wi-fi worked great - good strong signal, and the bed, linens, and couches, very comfortable. Nick and Amber are great to work with. Very responsive and helpful and went out of their way to make sure everything worked out well for us and we had a great time. Highly recommended!!!

Excellent Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We visited during Spring Break when the weather was a bit too chilly for the ocean, but the heated pool and spa worked out very well during our stay! We primarily hung out in the backyard but enjoyed bowling and the movies just a few minutes away in Destin Commons. We also took our bikes and enjoyed rides along the scenic route which has plenty of sidewalk available. This house has everything you need plus the golf cart for convenience. Amber and her family were great to us and very accommodating during our stay. We look forward to coming back to this house for our next summer vacation in Destin!

AWESOME DESTIN Drag Inn Fly Rental

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay in Destin. A wonderful location close to beach, shopping, dining, and just about anything else you would care to do. Very roomy with a great pool and spa which we used nightly. Kitchen had everything we needed. Owners were very nice and very prompt on anything we requested. Our first experience with a VRBO rental and would definitely recommend this one to others. The property was continually being upgraded. Good beds and plenty of linens. Would definitely come back and the golf cart with a great extra!! Loved the location!!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The pool alone is worth renting this beach house, but the rest of it was just as amazing! Tons of space for multiple couples/families, no sharing bathrooms etc... The golf cart made getting around and beach parking a breeze and the kids were kept busy playing air hockey and foosball when not swimming. Excellent central location to shops, restaurants, grocery stores and a quick walk to the beach. Can't wait to stay here again, highly recommended!

Two houses feels like one big house!

  • 5 of 5

Great home, includes playhouse the kids love and the pool and backyard are the best in Crystal Beach! Comfortable beds and linens. We really love the location so close to all the shops and restaurants and yet a quiet neighborhood and just two blocks up from the beach. We could hear the waves from our front porch!
