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 Miramar Beach

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.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Destin. The condo was great. The beach access was perfect. Looking forward to coming back in the future. We are also interested in your place in the mountains. Could you send us a little info on that. Thanks again!

Great location and accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Back for a second time and once again enjoyed this beautiful condo and nearby beach and restaurants. Everything is within walking distance so you can ditch the car. Owners are very nice and make sure you are taken care of. Highly recommend!

Trip to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Unit very well laid out and furnished. The proximity to the beach made it extra special. Number of quality restaurants within walking distance also a huge plus.

We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return visit.

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our month stay in Destin although cold most days. The area has changed since we last visited 10 years ago..Gulfview needs some upgrades but is convenient to shopping, the beach is right across the street. The condo was comfortable but needs a little sprucing up. The sleep sofa is a bit uncomfortable after sitting for a while but the beds were comfortable. The shower rod was rusty and needs to be replaced. The condo is on the third floor so if you’re not in good shape bringing up the luggage and groceries is a chore in itself. Now for the pool..

Each morning six or seven women hold court in a circle which looks like they are exercising if that’s what you would call it. It was a bit uncomfortable trying to utilize the pool while they were in it for most mornings. We use the non heated pool. The price was reasonable but the photos were a bit misleading.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay, and will definitely return in the future. The accommodations were great, and the weather was fantastic. Our only regret is that we do not have time to stay longer.

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). A five-minute drive to Silver Sand's Outlet Mall, Destin Commons, Sundestin Golf Course, Publix Grocery Store and Wal-Mart. Miramar Beach is right in the middle of it all!
