This bottom floor condo is newly renovated throughout and ready for your fun-filled family vacation. Easy access parking right at your door. (We also own Unit 12B directly above this unit if a 4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom alternative is needed) VRBO #667173

Each bedroom has a King size bed and private bath. The Master bedroom has sliding glass doors opening onto the patio with an ocean view. There is a Queen sleeper sofa, so the unit comfortably sleeps 6.

There are flat-screen TVs throughout and who can do without their WiFi these days...got that covered. There are large grassy areas for the kids to run and play and the relaxing pool is just out your back door.

We all love family game time, so there are board games for all ages to enjoy. There is a wonderful walking/jogging path that runs along the beach for early morning exercise or romantic evening strolls.

A short walk to a wonderful coffee shop, ice cream parlor and the Whale's Tail for a beachside breakfast. Be sure to watch for the dolphins! If it's shopping you're after, shop til you drop at the Silver Sands Outlets or the upscale shops at Destin Commons.

You'll return again and again to this perfectly located condo in beautiful Miramar Beach (Destin). All the comforts of home are provided, but home will be the last thing on your mind! So, get away, even if only for a while, and leave the worries behind!

About Scott and Teresa Hindsman

So, three couples from Northeast Alabama who have been friends for a long time and love to travel together found themselves at this unique crossroads in their lives at the same time. The Nest is empty! So, now what to do? The possibilities are endless…

Much to our dismay, we still had these darn jobs, so selling our houses and traveling the world, while enticing, just didn’t seem possible. Oh, and the first grandkid of the bunch made a showing and well, priorities change. But a place to getaway…even for just a little while, that was our goal.

Miramar Beach, nestled between Sandestin to the east and Destin to the west, seemed like the perfect spot. White sand beaches, emerald green waters of the Gulf and sunsets that only God can paint provide the backdrop for our getaway. Early morning walks on the beach, afternoon drinks on the deck at Pompano Joe’s and sunsets are the only “appointments” on our calendar while we’re here. The rest of the day is, well….a blank canvas awaiting the creation of a masterpiece. My idea of the perfect day at the beach is different than yours, but it doesn’t really matter, because I have tomorrow to do it all over again….kind of like an Etch-A-Sketch I suppose, just shake it up and do it all again, except the memories created are never erased. How cool is that?

We want to share our Getaway with you. We want you to fall in love with Miramar Beach the way we have. We want you to raise your kids here, make lifetime memories here the way we have. Most of all, we want you to leave the strife and turmoil of a busy life behind you, if only for a little while….and just get away from it all. We’ve tried to provide information here and recommendations that will make your visit with us more enjoyable. Have fun and enjoy your getaway!

Why Scott and Teresa Hindsman chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

We've been vacationing on this stretch of beach since the early 1980s. We've raised our children here, created amazing memories here. It's one of our favorite places on earth. Tradewinds is a beautiful place with lots of green grass for the kids to play and only steps away from the beautiful white sand beaches and emerald gulf waters! Our own little piece of heaven here on earth!

The property is exactly as described, no surprises

  • 5 of 5

My family ( two small kids and 3 adults) had a wonderful time. The property was directly across the street from the beach and literally next to the pool. The property manager was nice and Scott was great and timely. Miramer Beach is a fabulous beach and even though it was mid June when we stayed this location wasnt over crowded. I would definitely stay here again. Thank You Scott and Teresa!!

Right across the street from the beach and Pompano Joe's! Love that the condo comes with chair service. Rooms are spacious with king beds. Back patio was steps away from the pool! Overall excellent stay! We will be back again!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay and the fact that a beautiful beach was literally across the street! So nice to not have a long walk after a hot day in the sun. Also, beach chair and umbrella service was greatly appreciated and used! A great amenity and thankful to have that included! Beach service person was friendly and helpful.

Carpets in each room and by the bed were smartly placed in the condo. Didn't realize how important this was until day two when the inevitable sand began to get tracked in. It was nice to wipe your feet before getting into bed and keep the sheets as sand-free as possible. Once we figured out where hose was, we rinsed often. Another great idea!! Kids enjoyed the pool which was clean, not too busy, and had a nice temp.

Plenty of hooks in the rooms were also a thoughtful bonus, since you will end up hanging many things to dry, beach towels, swim suits, shower towels, etc.... And it wouldve been easy to overlook this vital amenity! Decor was nice and condo was clean-no bed bugs!! (Yes, we checked first thing!!) The king beds slept awesome and were plenty comfortable. The strong a/c and ceiling fans kept us cool.

Back and front porches were nice as well. We left quite a few of our beach items on them overnight and did not worry about thieves. This also cut down on sand tracking in the house.

Things to be desired:

A comfy fold out bed. This was was rough, even for our 11 yr old. Not the best but I have slept on worse....

Washing machine does not wash well and doesn't spin when washing. Actually it's more of a "jerk". Towels didn't come out smelling fresh.

Speaking of towels, since we're required to keep up with the washing of them, it would've been nice if soap was supplied. But obviously this was not a deal breaker-just a thought. Other things, such as hand soap, dish detergent, and dish washer cubes were included, but not laundry soap?

Bring round, 12-cup coffee filters; the triangle ones are not the right fit!

Not too many places to eat that aren't fish-oriented or over-priced. Fish got old fast, and feeding a family of 5 can get expensive as a tourist! Wish there were more places like Jim N Nicks (BBQ), which we gave 5 stars!! Reasonably priced, clean, pleasant, and very tasty! Lulu's was pricey but very family friendly! We enjoyed eating there as well.

Overall a great stay and we were impressed! Highly recommended!! Thank you for sharing your home with us!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that your Family enjoyed your stay with us. We've been vacationing with our children and now grandchildren in Miramar Beach for over 30 years. I've never gotten tired of seafood, but next time you're down, try out McGuire's and Fats Clemenza's for more non-seafood choices. We do the best we can with those stackable washer/dryer units. We just have to be careful not to overload them. Finally, we were advised not to include laundry detergent because of the frequency of children ingesting. I'm sorry if it felt like an inconvenience. We'd love to have you guys back and offer discounts for returning guests.

Cute condo!

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice little condo; very clean and nicely decorated. The pool area is very nice and the pool itself was always clean. The onsite manager was very pleasant and quite helpful as well. The location of this condo is nice as you are right across from the beach! We would stay here again.
