About Valeria

Our family loves travelling and staying in condos instead of hotels. It gives us more of a local feel for the place we are visiting. When we decided to buy a vacation home, we had no doubt Destin was the place! We have been coming to Destin since 2002. We have been to many many beaches including in Europe and South America - and there is nothing like the white-sandy beaches of Destin, FL! We hope your family will feel at home in our condo and bring home some wonderful memories!

Valeria purchased this condo in 2011

Why Valeria chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

We chose this condo first because it is located in our ALL TIME FAVORITE LOCATION, Scenic 98. Its miles of trails are perfect for running, cycling or just taking long picturesque walks. Secondly, we fell in love with the condo itself and its west-facing view of the Emerald Waters. We found the condo peaceful, nicely decorated and situated in a small complex that is just perfect for families – two pools (one heated in the winter), a Jacuzzi tub, barbecue grills, a cute courtyard with palm trees as tall as the three-story complex and a private beach! We chose to name it The Perch at Gulfview because of the way we feel when we walk into our condo – a resting place with a nice view!

What makes this condo unique

Third-floor unit (vaulted ceiling and no neighbors above you )

West-facing view (you can sleep in even if you get the couch, and enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony, watching gorgeous skies in the afternoon)

Tile throughout!

Not having to carry a whole lot to the beach (especially important if you have kids, just walk back to the unit for potty visits or to grab a forgotten toy)

We use the condo several times throughout the year, so we make sure things are kept the way our guests would want. We are always making improvements and updating things. That's why we enjoy having guests who come back to The Perch year after year!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Valeria, once again we had a wonderful time at the Perch. The updates you made were great, the bedroom suite, the kitchen appliances, it was all great. The pictures of you and your family gave us a face with a name and made us feel like we personally knew you. It is a perfect location to travel out and visit different areas of the emerald coast. Thanks again for have such a beautiful condo to share.

Beautiful condo! Short walk to beach and well stocked with all the necessities.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect size for 2 adults and 2 children. It was cozy and well decorated. Had beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards and skin boards which our girls loved!

The lack of an elevator was not at all an issue for us and we just considered it exercise! Our 3 year old even enjoyed the climb!

Would definitely stay here again. The price point was great compared to other condos. The pools were clean and in great locations. Overall a relaxing fun filled vacation. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo!

This place has all of the things you will need! It is clean & well kept. The private beach is absolutely amazing. Valeria is very thorough in providing accurate information. I hope my husband & I are able to return soon. It was perfect for the 2 of us. There's also room if you have children.

The place was wonderful! Beautifully decorated!!! Everything we needed! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful. We had everything we needed. I loved how it was decorated. We had a wonderful time in Destin. The weather was not the best, but we did not mind. We still had some good days at the beach. We will definitely be back. We had never been to Destin before. After our week there, we do not want to go anywhere else in Florida. The condo was great and will stay there when we come back. Thanks for many wonderful memories!

Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The Perch at Gulfview was a great option for my small family of 3. The location was great for beach fun! We spent several days on the easily accessible beach, building sand castles and playing in the surf. The days we had red flags/riptides on the beach we enjoyed the two pools on the property and various other activities in the area including shopping, an Escape Room challenge, and a snorkeling cruise. The unit was clean and well appointed with everything we needed - including beach chairs, an umbrella, and various toys. The only thing we added to the mix were some boogie boards. The only thing I would change about the unit is the master bedroom mattress is very soft - if you prefer a firm/semi-firm mattress you should know ahead of time how soft this mattress is. I would absolutely return in the future and encourage others to book without hesitation.
