Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband, Ed & I currently live in Georgia and have been visiting this area for 35 years! We own and operate our own real estate firm at Lake Oconee, which is located 70 miles east of Atlanta, Ga. Old enough to retire, but not ready to give up the 'game'! We have the best of all and working on a beautiful 19,000 acre lake in Georgia & owning a special getaway place on Okaloosa Island! We manage it ourselves and it's always very clean and neat. And, of course, the view of the Gulf is like no other!! We would love to share it with you! Please give us a call sometime and we'll tell you all about it!

Why the Owner Chose Island Sands:
Emerald green waters, pristine beaches, away from everything, but close driving distance to it all. Stunning sunset views. No impersonal high rise buildings! Need we say more?

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Small Complex, 27 units - 100 feet from the beach - Corner/end unit with it's own private entrance. Extra window in living area enhances the views and the brightness in the rooms, not to mention the view! Sitting on the balcony makes you feel like you could 'reach out and touch the water'. Dolphins playing and Pelicans swooping in for their 'catch of the day'. Convenient to shopping, restaurants & entertainment, yet away from the crowds & traffic. It's a dream come true!
