Destin Towers condo description

You'll love the French Riviera-inspired decor in our lovely beach front Chateau Champagne. Remodeled and redecorated light and bright with a 'French Cottage on the Beach' flair , 'Chateau Champagne' in Destin Towers is our beach and Gulf-front, charming and spacious (1330 sq ft) 2 BR, 2 BA condo in the heart of Destin right on the Gulf of Mexico on Florida's Emerald Coast. Features include: Granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths, new stainless steel appliances, new kitchen and bath sinks and fixtures, new Thomasville kitchen cabinets and vanities, new tile - everything has been updated. Enjoy fantastic Gulf views from the Gulf front balcony, living room, and master bedroom. When you are ready for the beach, simply take the elevator down, walk past our pool, and onto the Destin beach. Located on our quiet, family-oriented beach, this unit has all of the comforts of home, but it's right on the beach, and the ideal spot to relax and watch the kids and dolphins play.

In January, 2013, Travel Channel's viewers voted Destin as the 'TRAVEL CHANNEL BEST FAMILY BEACH 2013.' See press release below. Destin strives to cater to families and will delight all members of your family as a beach vacation destination.

NEW - High Definition TV with High Def cable channels (including NFL Network) in great room and Master Bedroom.

Destin Towers: Destin Towers is in the best location in the city of Destin, directly across from Big Kahuna's Water Park and close to shopping (Destin Commons Mall, Silver Sands Outlet Mall), fine restaurants, and best of all, on the best stretch of sugar white sands and aqua-blue waters, an ideal spot to watch the dolphins at play and enjoy your well-earned beach vacation. Destin Towers was completely renovated in 2006-7, and was named as a 'Top Pick' Destin Condominium resort by Southern Living Magazine in its 2007 'Destin Family Beach Guide.' In that article, Southern Living said that after a few days at Destin Towers, you will feel more like a resident than a visitor. Destin has been voted 'Best Beach in America' by the readers of USA Today, and 'Best Family Destination' for 13 years in a row by the readers Southern Living Magazine. Destin Towers is a low-density condo, with only 45 units, and only about half available for rental, so you won't have to jostle to get a front row beach spot.

Great Gulf Views and Quiet, Family-Oriented Beach: At Chateau Champagne in Destin Towers, you will have fantastic Gulf views from the Gulf front balcony, living room, and master bedroom. The balcony directly faces the Gulf (NOT a 'side' view), as do all of the units in Destin Towers(see photo from beach). If you are tired of huge crowds on your beach, noisy apartments, impersonal service and exorbitant fees charged by Resort quest and Dale Peterson rentals, choose our Emerald Coast HUGE 2 bedroom beach front condo for your beach vacation rental. Diane and Gerry Champagne invite you to come and experience all that Destin has to offer at Chateau Champagne.

                  Why the Owner Chose Destin Towers:
                  DESTIN WINS TRAVEL CHANNEL'S BEST FAMILY BEACH 2013: 'Focus on the family is in our DNA' Published: Friday, March 8, 2013 at 13:56 PM. DESTIN — What Emerald Coast residents have known for years has been confirmed with the Travel Channel’s online poll for the Best Family Beach of 2013. The Destin area received 43 percent of the votes cast for the best beach destination for a family. Also in the running were the Outer Banks, N.C., Paradise Island in the Bahamas and Cape Cod, Mass. “This didn’t just happen,” said Dan O’Byrne, director of Okaloosa County’s tourist development department. “The focus on the family is in our DNA. Our attributes are self- evident from our accommodations, our beaches, our people. We’ve been the family vacation spot for decades. Right on the beautiful, sugar-white sands of Destin. Destin Towers is a low density complex with only 45 units, only half of which are on the rental market. This makes for a relaxing, uncrowded beach vacation spot.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  In addition to an uncrowded beach environment, the two bedroom beachfront condominium units in Destin Towers are extremely large compared to others in the Destin area. This gives us the room to stretch out and relax, inside as well as outside.
