NOT a 15-story condo with 100 people around the pool! This is a 3-bedroom, 2 story facility in a complex of only 22 units on a bay front beach. There is an ocean view across the pool with access to an unobstructed public beach that is low volume due to the location. The island is only about 500 feet wide at this point so you can walk out the door to the bayside beach or walk across the road and be at the gulf-side beach. No need to take a car. Just outside the entry gate to Fort Pickens and the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Bike trails crossing the driveway. Easy access to marina with deep sea fishing, every tourist activity that you can imagine, BIG fishing pier, restaurants, bars, go-carts, miniature golf, parasailing, just about everything; but far enough down the road to be quiet. The two upstairs bedrooms have their own private baths while the bathroom on the lower level is off the main hallway next to the bedroom. Address is 1300 Fort Pickens Road 32561 if you want to map it!

About the owner: We owned a 1-bedroom condo in the same complex for over 10 years and were looking for the opportunity to buy a 3-bedroom unit with more room to enjoy with our friends and family. We wanted to stay in the same complex which affords us a degree of privacy and peace not found in the larger developments and yet it is easily accessible to all the entertainments offered in the area. We look at this as our second home and love the beauty of the beaches, fresh seafood restaurants, and abundance of outdoor activities offered in the area.
Why the Owner Chose La Bahia: We have been coming down to this area for over 15 years and found the location to be unique. It is on a barrier island only about 500 feet wide with the condo facing the quiet bay and the ocean across the road from the pool situated on the backside of the condo unit. The beach there is the white sugar-sand. 50-100 feet wide. The beach is public, so there are no condos or houses to obstruct the view or access. Outside the condo is a bike trail that extends 5 miles to Fort Pickens on the west, 5 miles to the east along Santa Rosa Island, and north across 2 bridges to Pensacola. Lots of outside activities; something for everyone. The main beach areas has many restaurants, a tremendous fishing pier, a marina with multiple options for deep sea fishing, as well as the tourist attractions of miniature golf, go-cars, parasailing, sea-doos, etc. We love the area because it avoids the over crowding and development of the Destin area and retains a semblance of privacy but still offers plenty of opportunities for entertainment. It's a great place to sit on the deck watching a sunset or sunrise or to watch kids play in the bay while you catch up on some R&R.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The condo is just outside the entrance to Fort Pickens and the National Seashore. The traffic is minimal and the area is quiet compared to the busy main beach area. During the summer season, there is a free trolly running along the road from the condo to the main area. Occasionally the Blue Angles will be flying practice sessions right over the condo.. There are several bikes at the condo which you can use to get around and thereby save some gas.
