About shannyn

We are locals and have lived here since the early 1980's. We have seen a lot of growth and believe there is no better place to be.

shannyn purchased this condo in 2011

Why shannyn chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We choose to purchase this condo along the beach becuase we feel this is the best place to come and get away from our very busy life. We live just minutes away but don' t see any reason to travel to any other beaches when we have the Best Beaches in the world at our fingertips! Why go anywhere else.

Our condo is just steps from the beach, and easy accesses to Pompano Joes for lunch or dinner (on the Travel Channel)

What makes this condo unique

I am a local real estate agent (selling only investment properties); when i saw this listing come on the market i knew i had to have it! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION (and the view)...The Gulf view is amazing! However, the property needed a lot of love which we were willing to give! We replaced about everything in the condo from new paint, flooring to new bedcovers and cookware. It is now our home away from home and we love it!

Our family of 5 plus our Minnie schnauzer stay out our unit about once a month (we are locals).

The kids love the pool and easy walk to the beach. I love that i can sit on the balcony and watch the kids at the pool and still have a great view of the beach! Abby (our Minnie Schnauzer) loves to people and dog watch from the balcony! My hubby is happy with the fact we are all happy and he can watch his sports on the Flat Screen TVs.

Hope this helps paint a picture of the vacation waiting for you. Truly gulf front benefits for gulf view price!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family of 5 (3 kids and a husband) just had our spring break at this cute condo. First thing I noticed was that this unit was clean and in perfect shape it also offered better views that I had expected. We have stayed at Summerspell before but this time I was able to watch the dolphins as I made breakfast for the kids each morning…from the kitchen! I also enjoyed the fact that I could send the kids down to the pool where I could still see them; while I sunbathed on the balcony with a view of the beach. No need for me to go sit around the pool when I came here for the beach! Of course my husband really enjoyed watching the flat screen TV. in both livingroom and master bedroom. It was also nice that when we needed a break from the sun; the play station was available for them.

and yes…..beach accesses was easier than ever! Took us 1 min. to get to the beach.

A little something for everyone!

thanks for letting us use your little beach getaway!

average rating of 4.948718 based on 41 reviews

We loved this condo, and the beautiful ocean view from the balcony.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo during snowbird season. When we arrived, we instantly knew we were in paradise. There were many people outside enjoying walking along the beach with their dogs. As we opened the door to the condo, we were met with a clean , brightly painted condo. The best part was the balcony overlooking the ocean.

Cute, clean condo with a GREAT view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at SummerSpell 203! Located on the 2nd floor, this condo was near the stairs making it easy to load and unload the car. The condo was clean and decorated in a tasteful, beachy theme and light colors. The view from the balcony was great, & we loved sitting out there in the morning drinking our coffee. Beach access was directly across the street, making our beach days a breeze to get to. Shannyn even had a couple of beach chairs & sand toys available for our use. The condo is conveniently located within walking distance to Pompano Joe's, and minutes from several groceries stores, shopping and the outlets. The most important aspect of this condo is that it is pet friendly, and I was able to bring my fur baby. Again, the condo was clean and had no noticable pet odors from previous guests. Loved it, and hope to come back again!

Beautiful Beach and Beautiful Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Destin, but we'll definitely be going back! This condo is in a great location, with easy access to the beach, stores and restaurants! The condo was exactly as advertised and Shannyn was great to work with! The views from the balcony were fantastic! The kids also enjoyed making lots of new friends around the pool! This is a great location and very family friendly! We will definitely be heading back in the future, and I know just where we'll be staying!!!!

Beautiful property. Great view of the beach and the pool!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! I've stayed at many places in Destin and this is my favorite. During our stay it felt like this was "our home". :) Other condos I've stayed in make you feel like you're on vacation. No trouble with finding parking spots here, no elevators, no loud neighbors, just a beautiful quiet spot to enjoy. We also loved being close enough to walk to surrounding restaurants. Overall an outstanding place!

Perfect Condo & Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Summerspell twice now. The location is absolutely perfect. Their are no buildings blocking your view of the beautiful Gulf and it is a very short walk to the beach. My family loves it! We spend more time on the balcony than we do inside the condo. This was our first time staying in unit 203 and it was absolutely perfect as well. Our kids really enjoyed the Wii during our down time. The unit is exactly as described and what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get; you will not be let down. The beds and furniture are extremely comfortable too. The unit even comes with beach chairs, an umbrella, and lots of beach toys for the kids. I highly recommend staying here, we didn't want to leave! As an added bonus, the owner, Shannyn, is GREAT to work with!
