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 Miramar Beach

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!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at this house while attending a friends wedding in the area. The house had more than enough accommodations to help make our trip easy!! The house was decorated so beautifully too! Even though it is an attached unit you cannot tell, it is very quiet.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at White Sands. The home is beautifully decorated with a relaxing beach theme and very clean. The owners have thoughtfully provided many extras and are very hospitable. This home is exceptional and we will recommend to family and friends.

Amazing location and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at Mike and Gaynor's beautiful home in Destin / Miramar and can't brag enough at how comfortable this place is. We traveled with family and 2 children who absolutely loved too. The house is VERY quiet and not once did we hear any neighbors or noise outside the home. The pool was great to swim in and the garage was full of everything you would need for a day at the beach. Mike and Gaynor were very attentive to my emails and kept us informed of the check-in and check-out process to make things effortless. I will 100% return and recommend this home to family and friends.

Things to note: The master suite is downstairs. This is a very nice feature! The remaining 2 bedrooms are upstairs with their own large bathroom. The beds are very very comfortable. If you walk to the beach, the gate at the end of the road is never locked (not sure it has one) and is the best place to enjoy your day. Be sure to go to Crab Island as it was the highlight of our trip!

Thank you for such a wonderful trip!

Next door to Destin with all its attractions but much less congested during peak season with 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. Supermarkets and shopping close by.

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.
