About Mike and Gaynor Gray

Originally from England,, we moved to Texas in 1999 and were looking for a perfect beach vacation - we found it in Miramar Beach! The white sandy beaches, blue skies and beautiful sea were more than we could have hoped for. There is so much to do with shopping, great restaurants and pretty towns to visit. Lots of golfing opportunities, bicycle paths on the beach front and family activities to enjoy - we find something new every time we visit - we have been back every year since we found it!

Mike and Gaynor Gray purchased this house in 2013

Why Mike and Gaynor Gray chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We decided to look for a place we could call our second home - we found it in Miramar Palms. It has everything we wanted, peaceful, relaxing and above all, it feels like home - we hope you feel as relaxed and comfortable as we do during your stay. A small, secluded neighborhood with its palm tree lined private street of just 10 homes, we are able to switch off from daily life and truly relax and enjoy our vacation - we hope you do too.

What makes this house unique

Close to the beach, golf courses, shopping and restaurants - we have everything we need to enjoy our vacation and all the comforts of home. Breakfast on the front porch, a glass of wine on the balcony, a dip in the pool and an evening walk to watch the sunset on the beach - perfect!

It was a fabulous 3 month adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We are snow birds and enjoyed the quaint beach cottage for 3 months. It was just perfect and had everything we could want. Mike snd Gaymer were so helpful and nice if we need any additional information or assistance. The neighborhood was wonderful and we met the nicest people. We can't wait to return next season.

House was very clean.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location & friendliness of the neighbors. House was well stocked, only wished we had a grill but lots of other extras including the beach chairs, etc. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was due to the temperature settings reverting back to 75 degrees every few hours which was annoying,

especially during the night. Woke up every night being hot & turned it back down. Overall very clean & easy to deal with the owners.

Very nice house, clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

It is a well kept house on a nice quite street. The rental was very clean, well equipped and the furnishing were comfortable. The beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and bikes in the garage were great bonus. We had no issues or complaints about our stay or the rental. The neighbors were all very friendly. The beach is beautiful too. The walk to the beach is fine, but we parked at the lot with all of our stuff and walked back to the house for lunch or a break from the beach. I wouldn't want to do the walk with small children or a lot of stuff.

Wonderful home for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Gaynor was wonderful to work with. She was kind & helpful in making sure all the details worked out for us. The home was incredibly clean upon arrival & is located on a quiet street away from all the traffic. The bedrooms are very spacious & the open kitchen & family room are perfect for a family vacation. We loved having the bikes & body boards in the garage. There is an incredible path for biking & jogging about a block away. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at this home and hope to stay here again.

Thank you Gaynor.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Miramar Beach! The home is adorable! Very cozy, well-maintained and clean. We cooked several nights and the kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans and utensils. It was so wonderful that they provided beach chairs, toys, bikes, etc. for us to borrow. It helped to make our stay perfect! We had to email back and forth with the owners a few times and they were extremely attentive and helpful. We honestly could not have picked a better place to stay! Thank you for sharing your home with us! We hope to be back soon!

A beautiful home for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. It was immaculate. It was very roomy and comfortable. The house was decorated very nicely and very clean. We had such a wonderful vacation and we want to thank Mike and Gaynor for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home. We did so many different things on this vacation. We rented a pontoon boat and went out to Crab Island. We also went on other excursions, such as a snorkeling and shelling excursion. We also went on the sunset cruise. We also went to different restaurants, such as Bubba Gump, Fudpuckers , and HarryT. All had very good food and they were fun. We hope to maybe come back again. And thanks again for everything. Gaynor is such a wonderful person to talk to and she also responds back to you very quickly, especially if you need to know anything. Thank you, Gale Newmaster and family.

Owner's Response: We're so happy you enjoyed your stay! Sounds like you had a great time and were able to enjoy a few of the many activities available in the area - we've not experienced Crab Island yet and may have to ask you for some tips! Come back and see us soon - there is so much more to do :-)

Close to Destin with all its attractions but not as congested and still has easy access to shopping, restaurants, golf and family activities - just a few minutes from Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Sandestin resort with Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard areas. Destin Commons is close by with lots of great dining choices.

Several golf courses are nearby and it is only a short drive to Destin harbor - don't miss the fireworks every Thursday evening during the summer season!

Visit the pretty towns of Water Color or Seaside on 30A where you will find lots of gifts, art work, boutiques and fine dining.
