About Steve Neese

Steve is a consultant to the Home Medical Equipment industry. He lives in Columbia, SC with wife Michele and son Jack.

Steve Neese purchased this house in 2001

Why Steve Neese chose Destiny by the Sea

We purchased Bon Bini to enjoy special memories with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Our guests love the 1800 SF of outside decking that wraps around all 3 floors. There are views of the ocean from two sides of the house. The elevator makes it easy to bring luggage upstairs and the golf cart makes it fun to drive around the community. There are two Weber natural gas grills on the 2nd floor deck, conveniently close to the kitchen and living areas. Our guests have told us that the beach toys in the garage for the kids and the baby equipment is a big plus. We keep a well stocked kitchen to please the most demanding cooks.

Bon Bini is absolutely gorgeous. It is very roomy too! I loved the balconies. It was so nice to sit out there and listen to the waves at night. The location coudln't be better. The home has everything you could need, an open floor plan, a beautiful kitchen, plenty of bed rroms and enough bathrooms so everyone can get ready for a day or a night out!

Thanks to Bon Bini for a lifetime of fond memories

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a gorgeous neighborhood! The beach is amazing and right around the corner. One of the best places we've ever stayed. We had 4 families and plenty of space for everyone. We loved sitting out on the big deck, grilling out and cooking in the amazing kitchen. You can't go wrong with this home in paradise.

Amazing vacation at Bon Bini

  • 5 of 5

Destin was beautiful...white sand and Caribbean blue water! I was a bit nervous about the weather being so far north, but we were in the high 70's with plenty of sun all week long.

The house was amazing...just like it is described on the site. We had four couples and four sixteen year old boys so it was perfect with the four master bedroom suites and bunk room. Great kitchen also...loved the built in ice maker in the cabinets! We enjoyed the gourmet kitchen and grill for some nice dinners together. It was great being able to sit all 12 of us around the table. We also at at the Crab Trap a few times as well as ventured to Sandestin's Baytowne Wharf! Delicious!

The entire development is beautiful. It is very well maintained. Steve is great! He called us on the day of arrival to check-in as well as followed up with a phone call on the day we checked out. That is great service! I would recommend this home to anyone in the area. We will definitely go back if we vacation in Destin again!

Owner's Response: Wow, you should be a professional travel writer. Thank you for such a great review. I had the under counter ice maker installed this year. Big families need lots of ice and this baby makes 65 lbs a day. Enough to fill the coolers for the beach and plenty when you get back to the house. Thanks again and come back to Bon Bini soon.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Destiny by the Sea is beautiful and felt very secure for our family. Bon Bini was gorgeous and our family of 11 had plenty of room. Everything was perfect especially those quiet mornings on the veranda with our coffee and grandkids still sleeping. Beds were very comfy and the boys bunk room was a big hit with grandsons. Kitchen well stocked with everything needed to cook.. House, Beach, Pool in complex, and Weather were Perfect.
