The Destin Log
Susan Kiley and Wayne Paul of Bay Breeze Patio are planning the second annual EggFest for Sept. 26, 2015.

When it comes to backyards, patios and outdoor rooms, Susan Kiley and Wayne Paul are the Emerald Coast’s local experts. Kiley has been in home and garden industry since 1984. Since taking ownership of Bay Breeze Patio in Miramar Beach more than a decade ago, Kiley and Paul have found their passion and become entrenched in the industry and the local community.

Kiley serves on the Board of Directors of the International Casual Furnishings Association (ICFA), serving along with representatives from leading outdoor furnishings manufacturers, including Lane Venture, Tropitone and Brown Jordan, among others. Paul is an active board member of the SE Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA). Together they make a dynamic team, pairing Kiley’s knowledge of furnishings with Paul’s grilling expertise.

"We both love outdoor living and entertaining,” shared Kiley. “Owning our business has been extremely rewarding. We really enjoy helping people select outdoor furniture and home décor that works within their outdoor space and complements their personal style. In some cases, there is a deadline—a party, a wedding or family gathering—and we get excited about helping customers achieve their desired result. Our clients become part of our extended family and very good friends.”

Bay Breeze Patio carries more than 20 premium brands, and features the largest selection of in-stock patio furniture in Northwest Florida. Bay Breeze Patio focuses on long-lasting furnishings that can withstand the region's harsh coastal conditions. As an authorized dealer for some of the most respected brands in the industry, including Brown Jordan, Lane Venture, Lloyd Flanders, Tropitone and Jensen Leisure, Bay Breeze Patio has built a reputation for quality and durability.

The same holds true for outdoor kitchens. Grill Master Wayne Paul knows his way around a man cave and as a KCBS Certified Barbecue Judge, he knows what makes a winning recipe.

“It begins with the right tools,” said Paul. “The surface, the heat source, and the type of grill all make a difference on the outcome. We offer the complete package.”

Bay Breeze Patio carries nine premium grill lines, including AOG, Big Green Egg, Broilmaster, DCS, Delta Heat, Fire Magic, Memphis Wood Fire Grill, SABER Grills, Twin Eagles and Wilmington Grill. These grills work well within outdoor kitchens, which not only make cooking easier but also increase the value of a home. From refrigerators to kegerators to ice machines and warming drawers, Bay Breeze Patio features the tools to make the outdoor kitchen as functional as its indoor counterpart.

Paul’s passion for grilling led to the inaugural Eggs on the Beach Big Green Egg barbecue competition held at Seascape Resort in September 2014. The event drew 25 cook teams and raised $9,100 for the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, which provides a home away from home for military families during medical treatment. Due to the event’s success, Kiley and Paul are planning the second annual EggFest for Sept. 26, 2015. 

Whether it’s a residential or commercial job, Bay Breeze Patio offers the most long-lasting and durable outdoor products in the industry. Learn more at
