ACTIVITIES It will hard to decide what to do first! Plan your day to relax on the pristine beaches which you will access from Summerlin’s private boardwalk. Or, you may want to lounge around the Gulf-front pool below (heated to 85 degrees in the winter). For an educational touch, visit close-by Gulfarium (Dolphin shows with visiting seals and penguins) or The Air Force Armament Museum (It is the only facility in the world dedicated to the collection, preservation and exhibition of the memorabilia associated with Air Force Armament). If shopping is your thing, go to the local downtown shops, Santa Rosa Mall, or head to Destin Commons’ outdoor mall. The Commons offer’s a soft-play kid’s playground and 49-head pop fountain. Further out (about 8 miles), there’s Sandestin’s Silver Sands Outlet Mall, a vacation in its own, with access to over 100 stores. For those more adventurous, you might prefer a day of parasailing, deep sea fishing or boating in the gulf or sound. Or, maybe a golf outing on several of the nearby championship courses is what you had in mind.
MEALS AND ENTERTAINMENT After a fun-filled day, you’ll welcome some quiet time. Plan your next day, regroup or take a nap on the full-length balcony. Watch incredibly beautiful sunsets, as the sun submerges into the Gulf, signaling the start of evening-time meals and excitement! Want to go out to eat? There is an abundance of top-notch restaurants on The Island, Fort Walton Beach, and Destin (five miles to the East) and Mary Esther (three miles to the West)! Just want to “eat in”? Have it delivered, pick up “Take Out,” grill on the community grill, or shop for what “looks good” at the local grocery or fish market, only five minutes away! As the evening winds down into night, you may want to sit and read a bed-time story to your kids before they say “Good Night,” to Mr. Moon; or sit in silence on the balcony to hear the lapping of the water against the sand and see the galaxy of stars set before you; or take a stroll along the shoreline, to feel the moon-lit waters dance about your ankles and the sand squish between your toes. Rejuvenated after your relaxing, evening meal and ready bring drown the night? Walk on down Santa Rosa Blvd.; drive to downtown Ft. Walton (5 minutes) or into Destin (10 minutes), for a plentitude of nightly entertainment options.

About the owner: After moving from Southern California to the Atlanta, Georgia area in 1992, we kept hearing from so many Atlantans about vacationing on the Florida’s “Emerald Coast.” We decided to find out why everyone was raving! We were in awe with the emerald- green waters and white sand beaches! It was the break-down of the A/C unit (in the July heat) that forced us to look for an alternative place to rent. Someone suggested Ft. Walton Beach (Just 5 minutes to the West). We fell “head-over-heads” in love with this area!
Why the Owner Chose Summerlin: The Tranquility - The Emerald-Green waters - The Sparkling White Sand Beaches - The Outstanding Restaurants and Convenient Shopping – Available Activities - All of this and more has brought us back year after year. We hope you’ll love it here, too, and build memories that will last a lifetime. Reserve your spot in Paradise!
