                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: I have worked and lived in the Fort Walton Beach area for over 24 years and love it! The area with its multitude of water related activities involving the Gulf of Mexico, Choctawhatchee Bay and the various bayous, there is always something to do. I've done quite a bit of boating, tubing, water skiing, shallow and deep sea fishing, catamaran and mono hull sailing, spending time at Crab Island, and SCUBA diving and am nowhere tired of any of them. I've also played several of the area's golf courses. This area used to be called the 'Playground Area' and I think that name was very fitting.

                      Why the Owner Chose The Palms:
                      I live close by but not on the beach and while you're not enjoying it, I can bring my family out to use it for a couple of nights!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Waking up, getting out of bed and being able to see the white sandy beach in less steps than it takes to get to the automatic coffeemaker that was set to brew the night before. Then going to get a cup and be back sitting on the balcony thinking about the day's activities while being in a non-hurried state-of-mind!
