              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We were both born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Married for 29 years and have two children, our daughter is 24 and son is 21. We love the change of seasons up north but always vacation at the beach. Destin is the perfect beach destination and once we found it we had to spend more time in this paradise. We spend as much time as we can at our beach home in Destin and are happy to share it with others when we are not there.

              Why the Owner Chose Emerald Shores:
              We fell in love with Destin Florida when we vacationed here in 2005. We purchased this home in July of 2012. Simply Paradise is located only 100 yards from the beautiful sugary white sand and emerald water. The location of this home is perfect. Emerald Shores has the beach pavilion that makes this neighborhood one of a kind, The conveniences of two pool, pavilion, tennis court and basketball goal makes it the best gated community for our family.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Location is the key to this home, it is the second closest home to the beach. Also this home has a huge side grass yard which makes it so unique. The two side porches overlook the expansive yard which is great for grilling and relaxing. These features made it the perfect home for us to purchase.
