About Steve Samuelson

Pirate at heart and philosophy.

Why Steve Samuelson chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

It was always a dream to own a fun place on the beach and to also have a getaway that we could call our own. After 25 years the dream was realized. Please come and stay and enjoy it as much as we do. Sit on the sand, watch the Pelicans, become a pirate for a few days.

What makes this condo unique

There is a back patio next to the pool that is great for grilling and having a libation as the sun descends on another day in paradise. There is great shopping and fun places to eat and dance in Destin.

Very pet friendly. Pool was nice. Was concerned about being so close to the pool but never heard any noise. Would rent again.

Great location with easy access to private beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful time in Destin and loved this condo. Plenty of room, great kitchen space, pet friendly, and easy access to the private beach. Pool is right outside front door and there is a shower/spray off area for after the beach. Would suggest bringing a fan for the bunk area (no A/C in that room) but other than that, no complaints. We will look into renting again next year! Thanks Steve!

Convenient location to beach, shopping and dining.

  • 5 of 5


1) Location, Location, Location

2) Private beach entry for guest

3) Private pool for guest

4) Nice kitchen area for meals

5) Washer/Dryer

6) Communication with owner

7) Pet friendly, however we left our pets with family.


1) Daughters didn't like the bunk beds. Reminded me of Goldilocks - One was too hard and one was too soft. They ended up sleeping on the couch/pull out bed.

2) Had some issues with the air conditioning, but it wasn't the owner's fault. A switch that controlled the power to the unit was located in a closet and the switch was in a bad position that the bi-fold door would hit it and turn it off if you wasn't careful, so we spent the first night without air conditioning, but the owner jumped right on it the next day to have a hvac company come out. I looked around and found the issue before the hvac arrived and sent the owner a text message that the air was working.

I would have no problems with staying there again. Highly recommend.

Great Rental Property!

  • 5 of 5

Steve was very easy and nice to work with when planning our stay. The condo is very well kept, clean and in a very convenient location! One thing that we discovered after we booked our stay is that the owner does have some things like beach chairs (2), beach toys, etc. that is not mentioned in the ad - this is a huge plus! The beach access is across scenic 98, but it was very easy to access. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Perfect clean, charming condo for a small family.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at Chateau La Mer. Condo was very well kept and had everything we needed. Close to the beach and close to the pool. Had a great time barbecuing out back as well. Would definitely stay here again.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect less than a 5 minute walk to the beach and the condo is right by the pool. The condo itself was great and cute! I definitely would go back again!
