Mainsail condo description


As this is my home away from home, my goal has been to create a setting that is relaxing, peaceful and inviting. I have completely enjoyed upgrading over the years and have slowly and carefully chosen carpets, furnishings and accessories for their beauty and quality. I have recently upgraded both bathrooms with new custom cabinetry and granite counter tops and porcelan tile floors.

The kitchen has ample work space, lots of cabinets, well stocked for anyone who wants to cook or entertain while they are here. There are granite counter-tops. The dining table can accommodate six and the bar has four stools.

Assuming you are occupying the master bedroom, you can awake to a full view of the gulf. I invite you to do as I do and enjoy your first cup of coffee right from that vantage point. You may want to make sunset a ritual on the west facing balcony. I've seen some pretty amazing sunsets from that spot as the sun hides her face until the morning.

There are three flat screen TVs, a wet bar and a supply of books to meet the taste of a variety of readers.

When you come, I hope you will find it as relaxing and restorative as I do each time I return.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: For the past thirty plus years I have lived in Nashville,TN where I sell residential real estate. I grew up in North Carolina and going to the Atlantic beaches was an annual event. After I relocated to Nashville, TN I discovered the Gulf Coast. Originally I went to other beaches and when I decided to buy a property on the Gulf I discovered the Destin area almost by accident. I found Destin to be a more refined environment, appealing less to the college crowd than some other areas. It has a beauty and a sophistication I really liked. When I walked into what is now my home away from home, I knew I had found the right one. The spaciousness of the rooms, the view and the location were all right. I have traveled extensively and enjoyed some very nice accomodations. When I come to my special place in Destin, I want to feel not only relaxed, but also to have a sense of a special enivronment. I hope you will enjoy being there as much as I do every time I come back.

Why Mainsail:
I chose this unit because I enjoyed the higher ceiling of the penthouse unit, the spaciousness and open floor plan. I loved the quiet beach and the view just blew me away.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Whether I want to sit all day and knit and watch Law and Order reruns, Read for hours, shop at the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, prowl the antique shops, walk on the beach, hit the surf, play scrabble with friends, do the hot tub, soak up the sun, cook for friends, two things never happen. I never get bored and I'm never ready to go home.
