                          Year Purchased: 1996

                          About the owner: The Arauz Family: Parents- Rafael & Pat Children: Tony & Tricia Family picture taken at Tony's wedding in October, 2006

                          Why the Owner Chose Mainsail:
                          Tony started going to Destin with friends every Spring Break in 6th grade. We started going a couple years later when Tricia was ready for a Spring Break in Destin. We loved Destin so much, we went back for vacation every summer. We stayed at Beach House, SeaScape, Surfside, and Edgewater, before staying in a Mainsail townhouse. Mainsail was by far our favorite resort community. Everyone was so friendly and the resort is very family oriented. One of the Mainsail cottages was for sale and we went to see it. We decided since we loved Destin so much we might as well buy a place and rent it out until we are ready to reitre. It was agreat decision! We love our home and we have been lucky enough to find wonderful families to rent our home and take great care of it for us.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          What we love most about our Mainsail cottage is we have a home to ourselves with a carport and yard. We don't have to find a cart and wait for an elevator to carry in our luggage or groceries. With a home, we have enough room for everyone to enjoy themselves without feeling crowded. I love the large kitchen. Most condos have such small kitchens I hate to cook in them.
