North Shore townhome description

Luxury VIP villa:
Quiet privacy and water views prevail in this corner townhouse located on pristine Choctawhatchee Bay facing six miles of water and incredible sunsets. An electric fireplace adds to the cozy atmosphere at night. Enjoy the refreshing pool around the corner. Upgraded kitchen includes sub-zero fridge, convection oven and is chocked full of Pampered Chef tools for those who like to cook and grill. Resort restaurants are 1 mile away for those who don't want to touch the kitchen.

The high vaulted ceilings give the main room an expansive feel. With the enclosed lanai, there is plenty of space to spread out so you can relax and experience a vacation as you should; no worries, lots of entertainment, and relaxing waters to gaze on at the end of the day.

Easy bike or car ride to the beach or The Village of Baytowne Wharf - a New Orleans styled village featuring restaurants, bars, shops, live music, a merry-go-round, zip line, winter ice skating and seasonal fireworks.

Breathe deeply the ambience of this perfect vacation spot which is as pretty as Disney and entertaining as a nature preserve. Frequent heron, bird and dolphin sightings. Enjoy the fun of the beach and the busy, night life in the Village, then come home to peaceful quiet. North Shore properties are mostly non-rental units where residents keep an orderly but friendly complex. The owners, Chris and Joe Manion, reside full-time at their home next door. They are always happy to answer any questions that might make your stay more enjoyable.

Our renters call this airy unit 'dreamy,' 'first class,' 'The Ritz!' and 'the pictures don't do it justice.'

Sandestin® Golf and Beach Resort offers the most complete resort experience in North America. Located on Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, Sandestin is a 2,400-acre destination resort for all seasons and for all ages with its gorgeous 7-mile stretch of world-famous sugar-white sands and emerald green waters.

The resort boasts a pristine bay front, four championship golf courses, 15 world-class tennis courts, 19 swimming pools, a 98-slip marina, certified children's programs, a fitness center and spa, 65,000 square feet of meeting space and a pedestrian village featuring a host of boutique shops, top notch restaurants and nightlife venues. The nation’s largest designer outlet mall is less than a mile away for a diversion from the beach on a rainy day.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Chris' dream was to put a kayak in the water before breakfast or at sunset and just chill. We love to make people comfortable and happy. We are right next door if you need anything. Since Chris loves to bake, you may find home-made goodies by your front door when you awake! Joe is from Michigan, Chris from Pittsburgh, and that's our son Bryan just out of Coast Guard Boot Camp. He's now a Second Class Petty Officer in New Orleans. We left Chicago winters behind, to live in this dreamy resort and wish to share it with as many as we can. The soul needs beauty to restore itself from time to time.

                  Why the Owner Chose North Shore:
                  People familiar with Sandestin repeatedly said that this unit was the nicest they'd stayed in - these were visitors who'd come here 20 or more years. We dismissed the comments the first few times; after the fourth comment, we began to take them seriously. We didn't realize we had such a gem! The resort's beauty is widely known; the peace at North Shore is rarely found. I don't think we'll ever tire of the water view...

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  You just can't get much closer to the water! In the 2nd picture with table and chairs, that's the Bay where the grass ends! Very spacious, calming decor matches the peacefulness outside. We have beach chairs and an umbrella available for our guests, as well as water toys and horse shoes. Tennis on clay and hard court, 72 holes of incredible golf, great lessons from pros, kayaking (with the dolphins) on the Bay or Gulf, fishing & crabbing right out your door, #1 beaches in the continental US (per US Travel & Leisure). The high vaulted ceilings give the main room an expansive feel. With the enclosed lanai, there is plenty of space to spread out so you and your family or friends can relax and experience a vacation as you should; no worries, lots of entertainment, and relaxing waters to gaze on at the end of the day. Hang out by the fire, grab a drink and some cards or dominoes, or peruse the book drawer: it's always stocked with a variety of good books. See how many satellites or meteors you can count from your private balcony. With no major city lights to bog up the sky, every visible star is waiting to twinkle at you and your loved ones. On calm nights, you'll see them reflected in the Bay's waters.
