About Vanessa Reid

They have 3 daughters - Hailey, 28; Courtney, 27; & Kaitlyn, 23 and 2 grandchildren - Bella 8; & Caiden 4

Vanessa Reid purchased this condo in 1999

Why Vanessa Reid chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Jim & Vanessa Reid have been going to Destin since the late 90's and purchased this condo because of the convenience and beauty. We love every minute of it! Having a family ourselves, we love that Destin offers some of the most pristine beaches in the world. Destin is very family-oriented & offers a large variety of activities for kids & adults alike. Lots of great shopping is available close by & a wide variety of delicious food is just minutes away. Some of our favorites include Old Bay Steamer, The Back Porch Pompano Joe's, The Crab Trap, Captain Dave's, Bonefish Grill & Callahan's and Bayou Bill's Seafood.

What makes this condo unique

Our Gulfview property is very convenient to the beach, only about 200 yards away. It offers easy access to local shopping & area restaurants. We enjoy getting up in the mornings and going for walks or bicycle rides for an early breakfast & then head to the beach!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank-you very much for allowing us such a nice place to stay. I loved all the great colors. The weather was great and we had a great reunion with several of our out of state friends. We will refer your condo to our friends. Thanks once again, Sheila

Fantastic Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation at this wonderful condo! So much so we are going back in six weeks to enjoy it all over again! The whole experience was perfect, from the condo, which was clean and updated and fully stocked with all the items one would need. The owners were amazing to work with as well. The location was awesome with the beach being just a couple minutes walk from the condo. Everything else, such as shopping, activities and restaurants were very convenient. I will return to this condo for many vacations in the future! Thank you Vanessa, Dawn, Murfreesboro TN

Best Beach Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Destin and it made quite an impression! The condo was perfect. It was very clean, ready when we arrived and and fit the needs of our family of 4. The beach access is close which made it easy to go back and forth throughout the day with young children. The complex/neighborhood is nice and family friendly. It is also close to other attractions around the area. We enjoyed the short drive to the boardwalk and the various shopping and restaurant options. Vanessa was especially helpful. She was available when we had questions and truly made us feel welcome on our first visit to Florida. We can't wait to visit again!

Better than anything....

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this condo more than a few times. It is close to everything that my family wants, entertainment, shopping and the beach. THe condo is always very clean and ready. It seems that it is set for just my family. We refuse to stay anywhere else. If Vanessa's place is not available, we change our vacation just to use her place. Thanks Vanessa, see you again in a couple of weeks.

We had an absolutely fabulous vacation here! The condo was just perfect for our needs. The beach is in very close walking distance and the children enjoyed the 2 nice pools when they became tired of the ocean. The beach is very clean and the water is so clear you can see your toes at neck deep! Lots of great restaurants near the condo. More shopping than you could EVER want! Thanks Jim and Vanessa for a great stay! Will certainly plan to return!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5


Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our trip to your condo. We had such a great time!! The weather was wonderful and the beach was absolutely beautiful. We got out a little more and looked around Destin and decided that the location of Gulf View is the perfect spot. We love the surrounding buildings and the beach was not crowded at all. Thank you so much! I hope we can go again soon. Oh, and the food and shopping weren't that bad either!! Ha! Ha!
