              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: We were born and raised in New Orleans and have lived many other places in earlier years - Atlanta, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco but have always return home. After Katrina, I can't imagine living anywhere else except maybe more time in Destin which also has our heart and soul. My husband practices cardiology at a large clinic in New Orleans and I am a retired full time mother, retailer, volunteer devoted to helping bring back our beloved city of New Orleans. We are now the proud grandparents of 3 adorable girls, Scarlett, Eden Paige and Sofie. We are fortunate to have 2 of our 3 grown children and their families who have moved back home since Katrina who thoroughly enjoy their time in Destin, too.

              Why the Owner Chose Waterview Towers:
              IT WAS PURE LOVE at first sight many years ago. We have been going to Destin since we married 41 years ago and watched it develop from a sleepy little village to an upscale resort town. A good friend's father had owned our condo since it was built in the early '80's and we would spend time there every year with our children when they were young and just loved it. We used to say if he ever put it on the market we wouldn't look any further and that is what happened. We were in the middle of a major renovation on our home in New Orleans and anxious to finish for our oldest son's wedding. We found out the condo was going on the market and bought it a few days later. It was truly an emotional decision and I doubt we would have bought anything else if it hadn't gone through. We would go there on weekends, leaving painters in our home in New Orleans and spend our time painting and making it our own. While painting, we would just stare at the gorgeous sunsets each night and wonder if we would ever tire of them, which we have yet to and still thrills us every night. The panoramic view of that gorgeous water from every room just had us mesmerized. Twelve years later we are still smitten and so in love with our home there. We go for long weekends as often as we can and pack all of our children and grandchildren into there for the 4th of July weekend of front row seat fire works. As we have slowly refurnished, renovated and made it our own little haven, we still just marvel at the fact that it is ours. We love to share it with others who appreciate the serenity, peacefulness and beauty of the gorgeous aqua water, sunsets, sugar white sandy private beach, birds flying overhead and boats going by. You can even spot dolphins jumping from time to time. The balcony is like a huge play pen for the younger children who are thoroughly entertained. It is a magical spiritual place to be is all that I can say.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              It is all about the view, the water, serenity and sunsets. We are in the East Pass jetty area which is the best of both worlds. Our home is very comfortable and as you can see by the 43 glowing 'reviews' on our website of people who have spent time there, it is a little piece of paradise. It is our home away from home and we leave it like that with all the comforts and amenities you could want. We both love to cook and live to eat, being from New Orleans so our gourmet kitchen has every gadget, appliance, spice and tool you might desire. It is a well stocked kitchen beautifully renovated with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Our over-sized balcony stretches the length of the condo including both bedrooms, living and dining area which seats 6 comfortably with a Weber BBQ grill. You will be mesmerized and entertained by watching the boats go by, the birds flying overhead, dolphins jumping and the sunsets which are like a different painting every night. Come enjoy our little piece of paradise. We are in a quiet remote area with a private beach only used by those in our building but just 2 miles from all that you will need or want - grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants and shopping. We love to share it with those who value and appreciate the peace and serenity away from the action but have everything just a short distance away.
