Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I love working in my yard, planting flowers, and enjoying Florida's wonderful weather. I enjoy the downtown marina area and the live theater. And I am the parent of one furry baby.

Why the Owner Chose Southwind:
There are 320 days of sunshine and miles of beautiful snow white, sugary beach. My family liked to vacation in the area and enjoyed returning to the ocean each year.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I enjoy the early quiet mornings, sipping my favorite coffee from the nearby Starbuck's coffee shop on the front porch of the condo. Then walking across the street after sunrise to look for shells and visit with others taking their morning walk along the beachfront. In the late evenings, I enjoy taking a late evening walk and then sitting in the chair as the sun sets upon the ocean. It is calming to listen to the waves of the peaceful ocean in this quiet, west end condo area. Come create your own memories.
