Year Purchased: 2019
About the owner: Hi, we are James and Deb Paul from Kansas City! Like most people, we love vacations and we work hard all year long just to enjoy a vacation week together as a family. James and I have been vacationing in Destin for many years. We love the white, soft sand, emerald green water and the fresh seafood caught straight from the Gulf. What an amazing treat that is!
Each year we booked a different rental unit, searching to find that one special place. We wanted a good night’s sleep in an updated unit with a view. We never found that place! Either the beds weren’t comfortable, it was too far from the beach, it wasn’t updated, or it was too expensive.
As avid beach lovers, we decided to invest our retirement savings into solving this problem! We set out to find a vacation rental that we could put our personal touch on and provide affordable luxury. We found the perfect location in January 2019, and renovated it top to bottom. Our mission is to share our piece of paradise with other families so that they have what we were looking for, a comfortable, affordable vacation rental that provides great value so they can get on with creating memories.
Why this property? I fell in love with the view the minute I stepped outside. The large private balcony was a rare find.

We had a fantastic stay! The wrap around porch was our favorite part! We spent a lot of time out there. The beds were also very comfortable! The owners were very helpful. We would definitely recommend it to someone else! Wish we could have stayed longer!
