Southbay by the Gulf townhome description

Come experience the best of what the world famous Emerald Coast has to offer for an unbeatable price!

Our townhome, located in the Southbay by Gulf community, is truly a slice of heaven. Our home is located in the heart of Destin and is just minutes away from everything the areas has to offer. We are located on the south side of Highway 98 - that means there are no streets to cross! In fact our unit is located just 120 yards from the pristine white sand beaches.

Your stay with us comes complete with access to two swimming pools (1 heated), a kiddie pool, 2 lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, a fully stocked and fishable 5 acres lake, and private beach access.

The townhome comes fully furnished with plush and comfortable accommodations. The unit comfortably sleeps 6 with two well appointed bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the main living area. One thing that sets us apart from other townhomes is that our backyard is the 5 acre lake! There are two very large balconies, one off the master bedroom and one of the living room, that you and your guests can relax on as you enjoy the lakefront view. You can also fish right off the balcony!

The kitchen has all of the amenities you may need to cook and entertain and there is a dining area to enjoy as well. There is also a full size washer and dryer inside the townhome for your convenience. Lastly, we also provide free internet access in your townhome so that you can stay connected.

When you are ready to head down to the beach we also provide 2 complementary beach chairs and an umbrella, professionally set up and waiting for you. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the best beaches in the country!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1976

                      About the owner: It all started when our friends invited us to stay in their condo at Southbay. We fell in love with the white sandy beaches and Cristal clear waters of the Gulf & Destin

                      Why the Owner Chose Southbay by the Gulf:
                      Once you see the beaches in Destin you know that this is the place to be. White sugar sand, excellent temperate weather and wonderful local establishments mix together to make Destin the best kept secret on the Gulf of Mexico.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      The 5 acre fresh water lake forms the basis of our backyard and is the view you have when waking up in the morning in your comfortable master bedroom or relaxing in your spacious living room. Just steps away from white sugar sand beaches!
