About Valeria

Our family loves travelling and staying in condos instead of hotels. It gives us more of a local feel for the place we are visiting. When we decided to buy a vacation home, we had no doubt Destin was the place! We have been coming to Destin since 2002. We have been to many many beaches including in Europe and South America - and there is nothing like the white-sandy beaches of Destin, FL! We hope your family will feel at home in our condo and bring home some wonderful memories!

Valeria purchased this condo in 2011

Why Valeria chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We chose this condo first because it is located in our ALL TIME FAVORITE LOCATION, Scenic 98. Its miles of trails are perfect for running, cycling or just taking long picturesque walks. Secondly, we fell in love with the condo itself and its west-facing view of the Emerald Waters. We found the condo peaceful, nicely decorated and situated in a small complex that is just perfect for families – two pools (one heated in the winter), a Jacuzzi tub, barbecue grills, a cute courtyard with palm trees as tall as the three-story complex and a private beach! We chose to name it The Perch at Gulfview because of the way we feel when we walk into our condo – a resting place with a nice view!

What makes this condo unique

Third-floor unit (vaulted ceiling and no neighbors above you )

West-facing view (you can sleep in even if you get the couch, and enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony, watching gorgeous skies in the afternoon)

Tile throughout!

Not having to carry a whole lot to the beach (especially important if you have kids, just walk back to the unit for potty visits or to grab a forgotten toy)

We use the condo several times throughout the year, so we make sure things are kept the way our guests would want. We are always making improvements and updating things. That's why we enjoy having guests who come back to The Perch year after year!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Valeria, once again we had a wonderful time at the Perch. The updates you made were great, the bedroom suite, the kitchen appliances, it was all great. The pictures of you and your family gave us a face with a name and made us feel like we personally knew you. It is a perfect location to travel out and visit different areas of the emerald coast. Thanks again for have such a beautiful condo to share.

Very cute, cozy, comfy condo!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great--nice decor, homelike. Had everything we needed and then some. Owners great to work with. Had a problem with a/c when we arrived, owners had repairman there to fix it that night. Excellent location across from beautiful private Destin beach. It was our first time there and cannot wait to return. Highly recommend this rental, and reasonably priced to boot!

Property was great, everything you need!

  • 2 of 5

Although the property was great and had access to everything, people partying all night, yelling and slamming doors shook the walls and wasn't family friendly to say the least.

Owner's Response: This is an unfair rating considering that we did everything to accommodate this guest due to extenuating circumstances outside of our control and unrelated to our condo. Our property is very well maintained and Gulfview is a great place to stay as indicated by our numerous previous reviews. As we indicated to the guest, the complaints he made were shared with the HOA and action was taken immediately. It is very unfortunate that some people choose to lie their age when booking. What they don't know is that this is grounds for contract termination and eviction. The incident this guest is referring to was an isolated one and does not reflect the nature of Gulfview. We have young children and chose to buy in Gulfview because it is a small family-friendly community. We and many other families have made great memories for years in Gulfview.

Perfect for anyone

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, down the hall and into the well appointed condo we knew it was going to be a good couple of days! Absolutely perfect location with ample (heated!!!) pools with private beach half the cost of other units! Cannot wait to be back!

Within walking distance to Pompano Joe's, a popular local seafood place right on the beach. Also walk to Captain Dave's and The Crab Trap (the latter about 1 mile away though).
