About Jay Nisbet

My bride Kristalynn and I live in Texas and have six children and 2 grandchildren. Our children range in ages 9yrs to 38yrs. We each grew up close to the ocean, I am from Boston and my bride lived in Hawaii. We love beautiful beaches and can not be away from them for long periods of time. I bought our 1st beach house (71701) for my bride's birthday. We 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 named our home Summerwind (after the Frank Sinantra song that played at our wedding). We decided to expand in 2005 and bought another house in Panama City Beach (67499) and renovated that as well. Both houses have been a wonderful blessing for us. The families we meet and the memories they make at our homes are a precious gift. Guests have told me stories of their children asking them, 'when are we going back to our beach house'. That is so satisfying to us. Summerwind is truly your 'home away from home'.We have been looking at buying another house in 2012 and now that goal has been realized. WE DID IT!!! This is the newest addition to our collection of beach homes in the Destin-Panama City Beach area. We are so excited to get started with the new décor. We bought our 4th and fifth homes in 2015 (sold this one "cha-ching") and 2016 #767599. We are blessed again-Jesus Loves US this I know.

Jay Nisbet purchased this house in 2012

Why Jay Nisbet chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

My wife and I study the Destin and Panama City Beach real estate markets. We have viewed hundreds of homes and have walked through more than I care to count. We have a well defined footprint for the vacation homes we acquire. This home not only met the criteria of our footprint, it has a wonderful southern charm to it and provides a peaceful, relaxing aura. The previous owner gave us the same warm feeling and she had put so much love into the house that it just felt like home. We also love the street it has a wonderful beach charm with sidewalks and white picket fences. We love sitting on the front porch watching families walk back and forth to the beach. The neighbors that live here full time are awesome too. We love CUDA and you will too. we also chose this property for the location and proximity to the beach. It had enough room to put in a full court basket court and kids and adults love to play.

What makes this house unique

This house has been lived in by the original owner only. It has never been on the rental program. The house is on the tax roles as being built in 1992. It was not completed until 1996 and that is when the original owner took possession. The home was well maintained and just needs a little Kristalynn (my bride) to give it the Summerwind look and feel. It has a wonderful private pool and a full court basketball court. It is a very short 60 PACES to the beach. IMAGINE seeing the gulf, you can hear it and smell it TOO. We have had several weddings in the short time we have owned the house. We have also have had several women's retreats. Imagine sitting on the front deck on a quiet street with white pickets fences just relaxing and watching the people stroll by. You have access to a extra wide walk way for walking, running, or biking less than 30 yards away. This home is located super close to restaurants, coffee shop, and shopping all within walking distance.

Wonderful Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

My family and relatives all just got home and are ready to go back! We had 8 adults and 9 boys (yes, 9 boys), we had plenty of room and some to spare. The pictures don't do this home justice. The boys' ages range from 4-15, and at no point did anybody lack for activity. The pool, beach (extremely easy, close walk) and basketball court kept them constantly entertained.

We celebrated Thanksgiving dinner around the gorgeous dining table. We all fit, except for 2! The kitchen is well appointed...didn't miss a thing.

The bedrooms were amazing. The first floor has a pull out couch in the family room and a bedroom with a queen bed that is attached to the bathroom. Upstairs 2nd floor the enormous master seemed endless. It had a king sized bed will a full sitting area, walk around the corner and you will think you have a closet , but it is actually a "cave" as my kids called it with a set of bunk beds, and a private TV. The bathroom attached is big enough to be a bedroom as has a shower and jetted tub. Also, on the second floor the 3rd bedroom holds 2 sets of bunks, and the 4th bedroom has a full and another set of bunks. They share a hallway bathroom. Go up yet another set of stairs and there is another massive bedroom with a king sized bed and also a queen and private bathroom. It too has a full sitting area with the most comfortable couch ever! All 5+ bedrooms have TVs including some very large ones in the masters.

With 17 people the 5 bathrooms/showers/laundry/dishwasher were in use constantly...we NEVER ran out of hot water once.

Thank you Jay and Kristalynn for providing such a beautiful home for us and being so wonderful to work with. Can't wait to return!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beach House on Barracudda in Destin Fla for a week in June 2015. What a wonderful place for my family. There was plenty of room for us all to have privacy. The best thing is the close walk to the beach. The teenagers could come and go with out adult supervision and i am sure the walk was closer than the information suggested. The Nisbets were wonderful to work with and checked on us to make sure everything was going well. I will use them in the future.

Summerwind III off-season stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was great! We stayed for a weekend with a group of eight, and enjoyed the heated pool and easy beach access. The house in superb shape and lived up to the impressive photos on VRBO. The Nisbets were great to work with, and our credit card payment was easy and painless. We especially enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen, and soaking in the lit, heated pool after dark.

This is such a wonderful home for a family vacation! We stayed here with our entire family with ages ranging from 8 mos to 57 years, and everyone was happy...especially the 5 teenagers. The pool is great to have right in the backyard, and the house is so roomy with a wonderful, large kitchen - great for family meals and family time by the pool. We highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!

Destin Florida Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house to stay at when visiting Destin. We stayed for a week with 14 people of various ages from 10 to 65 years of age. Everyone enjoyed the house and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is everything as described in VRBO plus some. The house was very clean and well kept when we arrived, and everything in the house worked. Here is our groups favorite things about the house in no particular order: 1. Very clean and convenient private pool 2. Private basketball court 3. Easy walking distance to the beach 4. Great neighborhood 5. Lots of space especially the dining room with plenty of seating for everyone 6. Multiple decks with great views in all directions 7. great location with easy access to all Destin has to offer 8. The owners are very easy to reach whenever we had any questions 9. Comes with linens, towels, and cooking/eating utensils. Overall, we where very happy with our accommodations and would definitely reccomend and/or stay again when in Destin.
