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!

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.

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.
