About The Owner

We love coming to Destin. A couple times a year we find time to steal away to get a few days of peace and relaxation. We live, work, and go to school in Alpharetta, a suburb of Atlanta. Our lives are very hectic and we come to Destin to find our Zen.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin is famous for its sugary, white sand beaches and warm, blue Gulf waters. What better place to find balance, to find peace, to find your Zen.

We love to get away to Destin. We bought Destin Zen so that we would have a place to go find our Zen.

Destin Zen is available to rent so that you can go find your Zen. It's a beautiful, new villa in the Crystal Beach area (center) of Destin.

Loved the decor and layout of the house

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the pool and beach access loved how everything was close by such as stores and supermarket. Liked the community area how they kept it supervised. Enough of kitchen tools to use and no keep of several keys to use since the house has its own kid pad code. Very peaceful and quite.

Comfort and Privacy

  • 5 of 5

Destin Zen offered the perfect accommodations for our family vacation. The layout gave the privacy we needed for our two adult children and their families. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and our weather was perfect. Thank you Scott and family.

Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

My family, which included 88 yr.old mother, 2 daughters, spouses ,4 yr.old grandchild, and my husband stayed here for 10 days celebrating my son's April 1 wedding in Destin. The Petry's were so accommodating with our extended stay and we are so grateful as it allowed us more flexibility with my mother. Their home was very clean, everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The pool area was great for my family and my granddaughter had so much fun. It was a short walk to the beach and there is a trolley available that was so convenient. We had a few short questions and Scott got back to us immediately. The kitchen was fully equipped for meals at home and there was also a grill available at their home. My son's wedding was wonderful and we are thankful that the Petry's helped make it more enjoyable!

Wonderful family/wedding week!

  • 5 of 5

DestinZen was perfect home for our family for the week as we were here to celebrate my son's wedding. The home was very clean with everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating as they allowed us to overlap a few days to avoid moving my 88 yr. old mother to a hotel the day of the wedding. Nice short walk to beach, trolley is available if you like. Pool area was great and my 4yr. old granddaughter loved it! Thank you again for sharing your home with us!
