About Suzanne Novak

Hello! My name is Suzanne Novak. As a busy Realtor with a hectic schedule, and a husband who coached in the NFL, we needed a place to escape the stresses of our jobs. One trip to Destin and we were hooked! The moment we set eyes on the Powdery White Sand Beaches, and the Crystal Clear waters of the Emerald Coast, we knew we would never need to go to Mexico again! We found our Caribbean at Crystal Beach and Grand Caribbean East.

Our stresses melt away when we are at this condo. Get up in the morning, enjoy your coffee on the balcony, check email with Free WiFi and then walk across the street to the beach!

We come back to our condo for a snack and then head back to the beach. Sometimes we shop and sight-see but we love to be perched on our chair enjoying the spectacular wild life show at hand. Dolphin, pelicans, and many different species of fish.

Suzanne Novak purchased this condo in 2013

Why Suzanne Novak chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

This View Is Spectacular! An end unit, on the corner, GCE #301 has an unobstructed view of the Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Grand Caribbean East is a perfect location just steps to the beach. It is an extremely well maintained building. With a hardworking property manager on sight, the pool and hot tub are clean, the grounds are impeccable and the landscape lush.

What makes this condo unique

The View, The View, The View! Grand Caribbean East 301 is an End unit. This means when you are on your balcony, you have total privacy and a great view of the Gulf and the strip. You can see the Gulf from the Kitchen, Sofa, and Bedrooms! Enjoy watching the dolphin swim by or the great fishing boats! There is always a beautiful show to be seen!

Well Furnished with a Great View

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the location as it had a great view from a wrap around roomy balcony. What a great place to have your breakfast & watch the sunrise. Just as impressive was how thoughtfully it was furnished with all one needs plus little extras (like little storage basket-caddy's here & there, Plenty of beach toys, hooks right inside to hang our beach hats, chilled glasses in the freezer and much more). Suzanne was great to work with, always easy to reach and very helpful too.

It was our first trip to Destin and I can't imagine a more beautiful beach - clear blue water & white soft sand. The pool & hot tub were also great and it's water temp was perfect. The pool/hot tub area was closed most of one day to replace a motor which happened to be on a day we planned to skip the beach & spend it at the pool but those kinds of things happen we understand but it would have been helpful to have a sign up with those details so we didn't have to call the owner to find out why it was closed & when it might reopen.

It would be nice to not have to cross the street (esp with several small children) to access the beach but we liked the condo so well and the slow moving traffic always did a super job letting you cross over that we had no regrets with our location whatsoever. It wasn't that far (5 min or so) from highway 98 where many of the restaurants and shopping places are but HWY 98 does get extremely busy after 5:30 pm and took about 20 min to go a couple miles at peak times. Restaurants do get very busy after 530 and we ended up eating at The Shrimp Basket twice because their food & daiquiris were just Great, very reasonably priced plus no wait (not sure why) when others had wait times. So yes, would highly recommend this unit & The Shrimp Basket!

Owner's Response: Marlene; Thanks for the kind words and your appreciation for all we have to offer! Summer is high season and our busiest time! Come again in March - April or September - March. Those are the quieter months to travel to Destin.....But, in my opinion, ANYTIME is a good time to come back to Destin and our Emerald Coast! Thank you!!!

Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two teenagers, and I recently returned from our stay at Suzanne's condo. It was perfect for our family. We've been to Destin other times and stayed a couple of miles east where it's a little busier. I was a little worried that this location would be too quiet for my kids, but I had nothing to worry about. It was very convenient to shopping and restaurants on 98, and within walking distance of a few restaurants on the beach. The condo was very clean and comfortable with up-to-date décor and furnishings. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc. Our favorite spot was the balcony where there was plenty of seating and a great view of the gulf. The pool area was conveniently located, clean, and well maintained. The beach was a very short walk across the street where you can rent jet skis, take a banana boat ride, etc. Suzanne welcomed us with a phone call to make sure that we arrived and that we were happy with the condo. Our stay was perfect, but if we'd had any issues I'm sure she would've addressed them promptly. I would recommend this condo to any of my family or friends.

Wonderful Relaxing Week on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed with my husband at the cleanest, most well equipped vacation condo we have ever experienced in Destin. The owner, Suzanne saw to every detail and need of her occupants. The views from the porch overlooking the gulf were outstanding! Even when it was hot elsewhere the tropical breeze was refreshing! We will definitely recommend this condo to all we know. And we will be back! Thank you Suzanne!

Week well spent

  • 5 of 5

Five of us just spent a week in this condo. It is tastefully decorated, very clean, with all the amenities you'll need. There is a beautiful top floor end unit balcony for a great morning coffee or a PM cocktail. The awesome white sand beach nearby was just what my weary winter bones needed. We like to snorkel a bit now and then so the Destin jetty just a few miles away was a nice place to spend the day. It also has a super nice beach, but be warned, there is very limited parking so get there early. This was our first visit to Destin but won't be our last. The owner Suzanne was responsive and pleasant. We would definitely stay in this condo again.

Owner's Response: Mark; Thanks for your lovely compliments. When I read your comment about parking issues I thought - Why did he drive to the beach when it is right across the street? Then I re-read and realized you meant when you went snorkeling. Whew! Remember, I also own a one bedroom down the hall should you need additional room for family. Thanks again. Thanks again, Mark!
