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.

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!

Plus side: This unit is nicely decorated and clean. It is within short walking distance of Kenny D's-which we frequented often(try the gumbo-yum), Capt. Dave's and the beach. Beach chairs are provided for you. Blow dryer provided under the bathroom sink in a basket in the corner (I didn't see it until I was packing up to check out-but I had brought my own.) Kitchen is nicely stocked with pots, pans, plates, utensils, coffee filters, salt, pepper and other seasonings. Ceiling fan in bedroom and living room/kitchen area is nice to have available.

Down side: No washer/dryer inside the unit but there is one located on each of the 3 floors-we didn't use it but I think it requires quarters. The balcony is quite small and your view of the gulf from it is minimal. The trees have grown since the pic was taken and they obstruct some of the view of the water. The handle on the refrigerator was broken and looked like someone had attempted to glue it back but to no avail. Not a big deal though. The hot tub outside by the pool was taped off-I guess it required maintenance. Nothing wrong with the pool though. We didn't get in it but we saw others in it. There is no elevator so prepare to get some exercise going up and down the stairs to the third floor. The climb is not too bad unless you have a lot of things to carry. The cleaning lady came a day too early-luckily we were there when she got there to let her know our check-out was not until the next day. Also, the entry code to the unit was changed an hour before our check-out time. Thankfully, I was still inside the condo when my husband started loading our luggage or we would have gotten locked out before getting out all our stuff.

All things considered the condo is very nice and I do highly recommend it unless an ocean view and an in-unit washer-dryer is top priority to you or if you have trouble climbing stairs.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay and loved how well appointed our condo is. I wanted to remind you that our pictures or listing do not promise an in-unit washer and dryer (none of the units in Gulfview has them) We do have washers an dryers located right outside the unit as you pointed out. As a matter of fact, we have just instslled brand-new washers and dryer's that are credit card and coin-operated. As for the door code, it is computer generated and expires at 10 am central time the day of your check out. I am sure you can appreciate the security a system like this provides to all our guests.

Beautiful condo! Short walk to beach and well stocked with all the necessities.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect size for 2 adults and 2 children. It was cozy and well decorated. Had beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards and skin boards which our girls loved!

The lack of an elevator was not at all an issue for us and we just considered it exercise! Our 3 year old even enjoyed the climb!

Would definitely stay here again. The price point was great compared to other condos. The pools were clean and in great locations. Overall a relaxing fun filled vacation. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo!

This place has all of the things you will need! It is clean & well kept. The private beach is absolutely amazing. Valeria is very thorough in providing accurate information. I hope my husband & I are able to return soon. It was perfect for the 2 of us. There's also room if you have children.
