Summerhouse townhome description

Best Beach Location in Destin -end unit Townhomes facing the beach that is conditionally pet friendly. The units are very spacious two-story townhomes, steps to an awesome pool that is surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Downstairs you will find a fully equipped kitchen, half bath, & spacious living area with a large TV, DVD/VCR, Internet access, and cable TV. The downstairs also features a full-sized washer & dryer and a sliding door to the outdoors porch and a tropical, fenced, lush community back yard. Step outside for a very easy grilling experience. The upstairs features 2 bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom. The master offers a queen bed, TV, and full bath. The 2nd bedroom offers a double bed & a bunk bed, with a full bath just outside the door. This vacation townhouse is located just a short walk from the white sandy beaches of Miramar Beach.
Both units are END UNITs (#1 and #29), closest to the beach, with lots of privacy & convenience where you can watch your kids have fun in the pool while sipping a cold beverage or a beer at the privacy of your own porch.
The units are decorated with a beach theme and in great shape. Relax and wake up in the morning for a walk on the beach, a run or walk on the convenient beach pathway with your family and your pet, or enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or latte on either porch. Additionally, enjoy the short walk to the famous Pompano Joe's Restaurant (a local eating favorite) and have dinner or a cool cocktail or cold beer on the beach. Conveniently located, we are just steps to the beach, an ice cream shop, bagel shop, internet cafe, restaurants and shopping. Take a stroll to nearby Pompano Joe's (a local favorite) and enjoy a brilliant meal or cool drink. A CVS Pharmacy and grocery store are also both very convenient and just minutes away.

You also have the convenience to enjoy your own outdoor charcoal grill for a nice relaxing grilled lunch or dinner on the covered porch - The best features of this townhome is the privacy, the pool, the roominess and the short walk to the beach.

At Summerhouse, guest privacy and enjoyment is very important.

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Heidi and I have been happily married for 20 years. we have four wonderful children. We love Destin and all of the outdoor entertainment that the area offers. Great beaches and great food! We have many friends in Destin with whom we enjoy our weekends and holidays.

                  Why the Owner Chose Summerhouse:
                  We fell in love with Destin when we first visited in 2001. Consequently, we purchased our two end units in Destin, hired local property managers to manage our property. Our local managers are instructed to keep the property in tip top shape and ensuring 100% satisfaction to our guests. Most of our business is repeated business and word of mouth referrals. We look forward to serving all of your vacation needs in Destin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  When we started looking for vacation property in Destin, we wanted a location that was friendly, family oriented, clean, well manicured and close to the beach. By sheer luck, we ran into Summerhouse and we felt this was a well kept secret in Destin. Summerhouse townhomes is a beach subdivision with only 29 units shaped in the letter U with the tips of the letter U facing the beach. Within 3 years we purchased the best two units in the complex. Both end units are facing and closest to the beach.
