About Kathleen Casey

My husband and I are the proud parents of two grown, married children and the ecstatic grandparents of six! We all love to vacation on the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast and Destin.

Kathleen Casey purchased this house in 2011

Why Kathleen Casey chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

My husband I spent many vacations with our children in the Destin area. Now, we get to share our vacation home with our guests and grandchildren when they visit! We love the close proximity of this home to the beach and the neighborhood amenities. There are many areas of the home to allow a quiet space for all, yet all rooms are located on one floor in our ranch home. There is a great mix of indoor and outdoor spaces.

What makes this house unique

Two of the highlights of this home are the one minute walk to the pool and the 2-3 minute walk to the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to let you know that we

really enjoyed the house, as well as the amenities Emerald Shores

has to offer :) The beach area is great and continues to provide much

enjoyment for us. Destin is a great area and we are already planning

future vacations, perhaps even making this an annual vacation spot ;)

Your home has a great balance of the beach feel coupled with the

comforts and feel of being at home. The wedding was great, even the

rain couldn't stop the blessed event. We have some amazing memories as

a result, and the home will always be a great part of that.

Beach Dreams is the perfect getaway home.

  • 5 of 5

For 2 1/2 months we had the pleasure of staying at Beach Dreams. The home is lovely. Very comfy & cozy. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with everything you need. The bedrooms are nicely decorated. Having a powder room off the kitchen and living room area was very convenient. The sunroom was very inviting! We enjoyed our morning coffee and late afternoons relaxing there. The home is on a culdesac just steps from the white sandy beaches.. We so much enjoyed staying here that we are coming back next year. The owners are very hands on and make you feel so comfortable.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house for our family vacation. We came with 6 adults, a baby and a toddler. We had plenty of space. The house was beautiful and clean. And a nice gift was waiting for us on the kitchen counter. The location of the house was excellent. Close to beach and pool. Such a great neighborhood and so safe. It was a pleasure just to take walks around neighborhood. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Oh, and the owners were absolutely wonderful to work with and communication was great….

Beach Dreams - Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

In the past we have always rented condos in Destin! Never again! This home was more than we could ever have hoped for this year's girls trip! The layout is cute and we all had our own space to retreat when we had had enough togetherness! I can't thank Kathleen enough for quickly answering all my questions via email/phone call! This was the most hassle free booking/staying trip I have ever been on and also the first time I have ever used VRBO. I will most definitely be contacting Kathleen again for our next trip to Destin! Highlights: kitchen with everything imaginable to cook delicious meals, wagon to haul our things to the beach, beach chairs, comfortable beds, beautiful decorations, and owners who were wonderful to work with! Thanks again!

Beach Dreams is a dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at this house for a week and we can't say enough good things about it! I don't think the pictures do the house justice in terms of the size, excellent layout, and it's beautiful beachy decor. The kitchen is well stocked, sleeping arrangement options are great and plenty of places to sleep and hang out with a nice living room, dining room, bar area, screened in porch, front porch area and even a back patio. The house is conveniently located to the beach and everything you need is provided. We utilized the beach wagon, chairs and umbrella every day and it was super convenient not to mention another added touch for the value of the property. The private beach access and margaritas available at the cabana were another great touch! The house is also conveniently located close to grocery stories, restaurants and other sites popular in Destin. We will definitely look to stay here again!

We love the Beach Dreams vacation property! This is our 2nd year staying and it is absolutely wonderful. Loved the upgrades that were done this year & we were most excited about coming back to the Keurig coffee maker (lol). We are very picky about a nice, relaxing and clean stay and this home truly meets our expectations to the fullest. I never want to stay anywhere else while in Destin. Love it!

Awesome House - Would Stay Again!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house for a week and had such a great time! The house is so well put together and had everything we needed. We cooked several meals while we were staying and never had a problem with running out of dishes or utensils. The knives were a little dull for cutting so just keep that in mind if you’re planning on cooking a lot. The walk to the beach is not far at all, but we were really happy to see the wagon! We just loaded up all our things and headed off.

The house is close to several restaurants and not far from the pier and other tourist attractions. The yard is very close to the neighbors, but it was never an issue. While we were staying we asked the owner for help on something and she was so responsive and even went out of her way to make sure we were happy. Such a relief in knowing she genuinely cared that we had a good time! It was such a great experience and definitely a house we would stay in again! Not to mention the beach was beautiful!

I enjoyed speaking with you and am really happy you and your family had such a good time! I also appreciate hearing about items that need upgrading and have since bought a new set of steak and cutting knives. Please come again!
