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 Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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

We loved everything about it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from September 10-20 2016. Everything was perfect ! The house was even better than expected! 4 couples shared this house- plenty of room for everyone plus the bunk room was never touched! We had beautiful weather and spent lots of time on the huge deck. The beach was a very short walk with white sand and beautiful clear water. We would love to do this again!!!!

Awesome Property in Destiny By The Sea

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at numerous homes in this neighborhood. First, we absolutely love staying in Destiny By The Sea. Second, this house and owner are fantastic. The house is well equipped for everything you may need. The owner, Steve, is very responsive and easy to work with. If this house fits your groups needs, it is first class.

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us for our family vacation. Our family took a vote and this was our favorite

home so far!! The arrangement of the three level home was perfect for families, the beach chairs and toys provided for the Grandchildren

was such a blessing. A Very short walk to the beach was priceless with our different ages of children.

What a wonderfully stocked kitchen, absolutely everything you need for preparing and serving meals. Such Gracious

Hosts to also have two Pack N Plays, two booster seats and a high chair.

Wonderful family memories for sure!! I will be making reservations for next year soon!!

Everything I expected and more.

  • 5 of 5

Bon Bini is a beautiful and spacious home with an open floor plan in the living area. Our group of ten ranged in age from 73 to five years old .Each of ushad all we could possibly have wanted and could not have been happier. The well equipped kitchen and close proximity to a major grocery store made eating at home ( it did feel like home)a pleasure and of course we did try some of the local restaurants. For a adult night out we enjoyed the Ocean Club.

The area has so much to offer. We took advantage of the availability off shore fishing, paragliding, renting wave runners, mini golf and feeding the alligators.

A good time was had by all and we hope to be back again.

Bon Bini means Welcome in the BEST WAY!!

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Michelle Neese have thought of everything! This home has it all. Location, secure private community, amenities, and a clean private beach. The house is spacious, and plenty of room for family to have their own space as needed. This was a turn key vacation for us, truly more than we expected.

A couple of things bear mentioning. Make sure your GPS routes you over the toll bridge. Its much faster than traveling thru Ft Walton and Destin with heavy traffic. And we mistakingly ordered an amazon delivery to the house. Because of the privacy and gate, it was misfortunate that we did not get the items until the last day. Not a big deal, but just so you know.

And, I must mention that the owner has excellent communication and recommendations for the area. I always received a response within an hour or so.

We hope to revisit this area and Bon Bini again. Definitely a 5 star vacation.
