You have heard the saying that "all work and no play" is not good! Well in this case it is good.I just returned from Destin,Florida on a work project. My wife asked if I planned to play a little but I told her there will no time to play. We drove down all day on Monday and drove home all day Thursday(yesterday). Upon our arrival there Monday about 5pm we immediately drove to home depot and Lowes to find the right porcelain tile to install in the 2 remaining bedrooms we did not tile in the same condo last December.After our purchase we proceeded pulling up carpet and tack strip and lots of nails driven into the concrete floors. We finally had both bedroom floors ready for the rubber underlayment I purchased last month. We primed the master bedroom floor and installed that matting which h...

Earlier today I was reading an excellent post by Gary Walters waiting for his Zillow subscription to expire and that led me to this post.As many of you probable know I own some beachfront rental condos in Destin,Florida. When I first purchased my first beachfront condo(6 years ago) I started advertising on VRBO and knew to make money I had to spend money.Things went well and 1.5 years ago I purchased my second unit and signed up for a second vrbo account.Early this year vrbo was acquired by Expedia and the rest of the HomeAway companies. The purchase price was a whopping 3.9 billion dollars.A couple of months ago the "new and soon to be improved" vrbo decided to start double dipping. Not only are they charging the owners but they are also going to start tacking on a surcharge on each re...

I received a google alert for the term Destin Pelican Beach Resort this morning. It was an article originally written in the Florida Sportsman Magazine just a few days ago. The reason the alert popped up is because the fishermen in the article stayed at the Pelican Beach Resort. They were quoted as saying they stayed on the 7th floor and had a view of the ocean and morning sun. They had to have stayed in a 2 bedroom on the angled side which has a somewhat side view of the beach. My #1004 is on the 10th floor and directly faces the gulf. Personally I prefer looking out of the condo directly at the ocean. It was be very easy from my balcony to be a fish spotter for a friend fishing from shore behind the resort. Here is a link to that Destin fishing article and I know you will enjoy. If y...

Almost 3 years ago my wife and I purchased a Destin beachfront condo at the Pelican Beach Resort. At that time rentals were not quite up to par. The second year rentals were still not great but this past year 2011 the rental market came back. If you will remember, the oil spill really affected business in general all along the gulf coast. However, Destin never really saw any of that oil from the spill but people across the country were scared because of all the news hype. 2011 was the turn around year for the beach condo rental market.This year 2012 promises to be even better that last year. I am getting bookings every day and some are unable to book my unit because their dates are already taken. Click on that link up above to see if your dates are available and to get more information....
