About Amanda Thieke

We are two sisters from Kentucky. Our dad bought 410 in 2008 and 210 in 2010. We loved Beach Retreat so much that we purchased 204 in 2013. We love renting out the condos and getting to know people from so many places!

Amanda Thieke purchased this condo in 2013

Why Amanda Thieke chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Our first trip to Destin was in 2005. We fell in love with Beach Retreat because my entire family has dogs and we wanted to be able to take them to a place where they felt welcome and other people could bring their pets as well. We know how important furbabies are!

What makes this condo unique

You have the gulf and beach view along with a pool, hot tub, fitness room, and best of all the pet friendliness.

Beach Retreat 204 was perfect! Impeccably clean, recently updated, coastal décor, 2 king size beds, and kitchen that 2-3 people can stand in at same time made this condo a perfect week stay. Our daughter and son-in-law joined us for 3 nights, they were so glad to have king bed. We love Miramar Beach, have stayed there few times. This is our favorite, an unobstructed ocean view, away from public access, but still walking distance to coffee, restaurants. Only 44 units at Beach Retreat, so very quiet. Having umbrella and 2 beach chairs set up every day is definite plus. Owners Brooke & Amanda so helpful were great to rent from. We are actually looking to buy in Miramar Beach, would buy at Beach Retreat, but no listings on market. Good indication of a very nice place. Our Golden Retriever was with us , he gives it a 20 paws!

This was our first time in Destin.....Brooke was so wonderful, answering all my questions as this was our first time doing a condo rental as well. The condo was very undated and had everything we needed in the kitchen. We will definitely return here in the future.

Beautiful condo in a great location

The rental process was seamless and the managers were very friendly and helpful. The condo was well-appointed, beautifully decorated, conveniently located, and had a nice overlook of the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will look forward to being back soon.

Perfect getaway for a family with a dog

  • 5 of 5

The condo was was very clean and comfortable. Everything was decorated nicely. My family loved the fact that there were large flat-screen TVs in both bedrooms, the beds were comfortable, and were 2 full bathrooms. The patio/deck area was a perfect place to sit and relax with a great view of the beach and ocean. Being on the second floor was perfect! The distance to the beach was great. You do have to cross a two lane road, but everyone stops to let you cross. The beach was beautiful. The beach service attendants were friendly and helpful. The location of this property was perfect! The owners were very helpful and easy to contact. It was like a home away from home. I would stay here again. My family and I stayed at a large resort the last time we were in Destin. It was nice, but we found this set-up ideal for bringing our dog. While she couldn't go on the beach, we did take her out to eat with us. There were many restaurants that allowed dogs. We also liked the walking path down the entire stretch of the area for walking our dog. Great place to stay!

We Loved the condo, my son and my nephews just fell in love with this property, we go once a year to Destin since 2008 and they said that by far this is the best year ever!!! so close to the beach and we had access to a great pool.

it was so quite that you can hear the waves while you enjoy your coffee or a Margarita at Night ;-)

I will definitely recommend this, and we are starting to plan for next year's vacations...
