About The Owner

Both Bill and I are business owners, avid golfers and wine lovers! We have 2 grown kids and now are proud grandparents of 6. And....after a few years of fostering we have adopted a precious baby girl.

We recently moved to Destin so we are able to assist our guests quickly if any problems arise.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have been coming to this area for over 20 years together. This was also a vacation spot in the 60's for my husband and his friends to come fishing. We kicked ourselves for not buying back in the early 80's and just suffered until 2008. We finally decided that the time was right and we fell in love with this quaint little community. It was a perfect place to bring our families to and a fabulous place to make memories of a lifetime with the grandkids.

What makes this house unique

The biggest benefit that we love is the garage. It rains pretty frequently here in the afternoons and it is nice not to get soaked going back and forth from the car. Also...short trip from the car to the kitchen and bedrooms!!! Also, the front porch is nice to sit on and relax in the evenings or to watch the kids play. Or the private, fenced backyard. You don't have many places with yards here....

The community is small and the cul-de-sac is nice for the grandkids to ride their bikes in. The pool is just steps away next door and that is oh so nice! The feeling is just a home away from home feel with the added bonus of the beach just a short walk away!

Great vacation spot for families.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, plenty of room for our family. The double bunks were perfect for our four grandchildren. They loved having the pool right next door. We were blessed with a beautiful week. Cheri went out of her way to meet all our needs. We would definitely consider booking again in the future.

Great place to stay and wonderful owner to do business with!

  • 5 of 5

Let me first say that the owner, Cherie, was so responsive, helpful, and accommodating! She was a pleasure to deal with. We had a snafu of confused condos in the beginning and she was right on it; the wind decided to bend the umbrella in the back yard and she was great about it; the air conditioner decided to freeze and leak a little (it's a new unit- got a little over enthusiastic about doing its job!) and the fix it guy was there in an hour. And don't let this make you think the house was run down or old- it is absolutely not- it is a charming, relatively new house with a quaint back yard and it is right next to the pool (no worries- no noise or crowding issue with that) at the end of a cul de sac. It was modern, clean, and extremely comfortable for all of us.

The house is a quick walk to the beach- the only caveat is that this section of Miramar beach has joined the 'private beach' movement/fight going on (I grew up in FWB next to Destin- this idea of private beach is an obscenity to me and the locals) so you have to turn right and go to the end of the boardwalk (a short distance) to get the open access to the public beach. I do wish there was a sidewalk to the beach but this is a city/county issue- not anything to do with the house or owner. There are bikes in the garage, a nice wagon to wheel a little one or toddler to the beach, a charcoal grill in the back yard- and tons of restaurants and shops nearby.

We truly enjoyed our stay- it was, as always, too short- but I would rent from Cherie again any day, any time, anywhere. She is fair, flexible, and knows how to be a great hostess for those staying in her lovely rental home.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay!! I am happy to report that there is a sidewalk coming this fall!! Yay!!! And the county is also enforcing the public's rights to use of the beach. :-) Come back and see us soon!

The home was beautiful, met all of our needs for a family of 9. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood for our grandbabies and it was a short walk to the beach. The pool was fantastic right out the back door and all the water toys and wagon were an added bonus. Owners were superb and quick to respond with any questions! Highly recommend it!

Owner is very friendly and made us feel at home during our stay. She was very quick if we had any items that required attention. This home is just a short walk from the beach, but I really wish they had a sidewalk in Holiday Rd.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in Destin/Miramar and we loved it even more than the first time. My mom has never been out of Texas so we planned our trip w/ them and their dogs. She's pretty picky about where she stays but she was impressed with this house (shocked but happy she was) The home was not as close to beach as I preferred but it's a good location if you are not going w/ older people and not carrying chairs and tents. There's a wagon there but we chose to park and walk to house when ever necessary until it was time to go home. The home has most everything you need so we were able to cook several days (I don't like to cook on vacation but my parents don't like to eat out) The back patio is really nice to hang out, my dogs had plenty of space to roam too. The landscaper left gate open and we almost lost our dogs but thankfully my parents are smokers so when they were in the front, they saw the dogs. Pool was almost always empty and we went daily. Nice size pool and wasn't too close to home that you did not hear others at pool. We had plenty of space for 5 adults, two teenagers and two kids. I've rented homes (different areas) in the past for vacation and I must say this is the best one so far. Beds were comfy, all rooms had ceiling fans and no one had to wait in line for bathroom b/c there are THREE OF THEM (YAY!) I was expecting the grill to be smaller so I would not have to cook but it was big enough to cook for everyone. If I came back, I would rent again but w/ out my parents (LOL) Thanks again for sharing your home w/ us.
