                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We fell in love with Destin when we came on the BEST vacation ever in 1995! We began an annual vacation tradition that was awesome for our kids as they grew up. We love it so much here that now we live here and rent out our home, plus other homes and condos in the area. The people are friendly and the scenery just can't be beat!

                  Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
                  We owned a Gulf front condo for many years and realized we wanted something bigger so our kids could bring friends when we came on vacation. We purchased this house in the middle of constructions, which was great because we could add some of our own touches before it was finished (surround sound, etc.). This area of Crystal Beach has a great, short, almost level beach access, and the home is just a few yards away. We love the area because you have the conveniences of restaurants and stores very close by, yet the neighborhood is quiet and very family-oriented.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We tried to think of just about everything you need so you don't have to load your car to the brim with 'stuff.' Just bring a swimsuit and towel, and you are set! We really enjoy entertaining, so we furnished our home with conveniences that make entertaining a breeze. We hope you enjoy everything Skipper's Escape as to offer!
