About Jay Nisbet
My wife and I grew up at the beach. Kristalynn in Hawaii and myself in Boston. We live in Texas and have 6 children and 2 grand children.We get rejuvenated from the ocean and the sand between our toes. We wanted to create great times and memories for our family. 17 years ago, I bought this home, for my bride's birthday. We named it after the Summerwind Song that was the first song played at our wedding reception 20 years ago. Gutted the house down to the studs and completely remodeled it. I decided to start renting the house to make up for some of the monthly expenses and it turned into a great small business. We decided to expand in 2005 and bought another house in Panama City Beach and renovated that as well. Both house have been a wonderful blessing for us. We bought our 3rd house in 2012 in Crystal Beach Destin VRBO#438269. We added a fourth house in 2014 - rented it for a year and someone made us an offer we could not refuse, so we sold it. We built a another house right up the street from CUDA 438269. CUDA TOO 767599 is a block away and has 6 bedrooms/61/2 baths. We are having a blast renting to wonderful families/groups.

Why Jay Nisbet chose Miramar Beach
We chose Destin because it is within driving distance from Texas and the "powder white sand" and the "clear blue water" make for one of the "World's Most Beautiful Beaches". The town is very family friendly. I found this property after dialing into the internet in 2000. Traveled to Destin to see it and could not believe the location to the gulf! We could hear the waves at night and did not have to cross a street to get to the beach with our children that were so young at the time. Everything worked out great! My bride and I make a great team!
What makes this House unique
The house and the area are private and peaceful. There are only 15 houses on the street and it dead ends into the gulf so there is no traffic. We designed an over-sized wrap around deck that gives us plenty of room to grill and relax. The private pool and basketball court are fun and can be competitive. Upstairs is separated from the down stairs so it gives people the needed privacy when vacationing with multiple families or friends. Plus some people have small children or babies that need to go down for naps so it provides the benefit of a quiet place to go. Access to the beach is easy and moving back and forth from the beach to the pool is quite convenient. Shopping for groceries or anything else someone might need are with in a mile of the house. We like this end of the beach because there is not as much traffic on the roads or the beaches. Once you have your groceries you never have to leave the complex. We have several families that come back every year. We love it in Destin and you will too.

One of the best trips so far
The house was fabulous
Location, location, location!!!!
We have stayed in Destin the last three summers, and this was by far our favorite location. No busy streets to cross, and the area is quiet and perfect for families. We had two families in our group: two couples and 6 kids. Note that you must go outside to get to the lower level of the house, but this was fine as the older kids were able to use the queen and 4 bunk beds downstairs, and we kept the youngest kids upstairs with us. There was a set of bunk beds in one of the upstairs bedrooms.
The kitchen was well-equipped (two blenders!), coffeepot and built-in grinder, and nice Fiestaware plates and mugs. Most rentals leave me wishing I had my own kitchenware, but not the case here. We never had a shortage of serving dishes, utensils, small appliances, etc. There is a second refrigerator and plenty of plasticware in the second kitchenette downstairs.
The private pool was everything we hoped it would be... the kids really enjoyed coming back from the beach, showering off the sand in the outdoor shower, and then hopping into the pool. There was a huge stock of pool and beach toys. I recommend taking inventory of what toys, chairs, and coolers are there before heading to Alvin's Island for beach supplies (less than a block away).
Dollar General and Walgreens are also about a block away, and Winn Dixie, Starbucks, and the outlet mall are extremely close as well.
If you haven't been to the white, sandy beaches in Destin, you will not be disappointed. We have traveled to several areas of Florida, Mexico, South Carolina, etc., and this is such a clean, family-friendly beach that we haven't wanted to go anywhere else for the last few years!! The water is fairly calm so we are able to take the little kids out in the water without the waves coming up over their heads.
The owners were great to work with, and we recommend this rental property. Thanks again for the great stay!!
So close to everything! Love the pool!
You couldn't ask for anything better! Close to shopping, entertainment and restaurants, also very close walk to the beach. We stayed from May 28th and left June 4th. We had excellent weather up until the day we left but other than that it was a perfect vacation. If you ever encounter any problems the owners will help out in anyway they can. My kids favorite thing to come back to was the pool at night. We would definitely rent from them again!
Thank you so much Jay and kristalynn for sharing your beautiful beach home with us. We had so much fun!! The pool and basketball court kept our children busy. We especially love the private street for our children to wAlk to the beach. Very safe and the neighbors were very friendly and helpful. There were some issues but you took care of them promptly. I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and family.
This rental had something for everybody
My family spent a week in August at this wonderful beach house. My daughter and husband brought their three month old and were able to have privacy and convenient access to the rest of the family in the fully equipped downstairs space. We spent much of our time in the private pool before and after the short walk to the beautiful beach. The thirty year old boys spent hours reliving their childhood playing basketball on the court. My family had a great time and look forward to returning!!
Great Location with short walk to beach
We really enjoyed staying at Summerwind. There were two families with 5 boys among us and having the beach close, our own pool with volleyball net and a full size basketball court helped to keep them busy.
Full Court basket Ball-Private gated community. Dead ends into the gulf short walk- a football field away from private beach access.
