Waterview Towers condo description

The view from this 5th floor, gulf side unit, is simply the best in Destin. It looks across the jetties into the gulf.You not only get the gulf but you get to watch the boats as they navigate through the jetties going and returning from the sea.
The transitional waterway of the pass is full of marine life. Dolphin,pelicans,blue herons, sea gulls, are everywhere.This view can be enjoyed even more as EVERY ROOM IN THIS PARTICULAR UNIT HAS EXPANSIVE WINDOWS FACING THE GULFIn addition the balcony is oversized, running the full length of the unit and deep. Thats why I feel THIS UNIT HAS THE BEST LAYOUT OF ANY OF THE CONDOS IN DESTIN! ! !
On Thursday nights the City of Destin puts on a airshow/fireworks display in the pass, right in front of your 5th floor balcony. Your vantage point is as close and as good as it gets!!! You are 'ground zero' ! ! !You not only see the fireworks you can smell em!!
The large swimming pool area is waterfront and is lushly landscaped, hot tub also! Because this is a small complex of 33 units this beautiful pool is almost never crowded. The pool area leads to our intimate private beach. Most days you are left with a feeling of quiet serenity.
Out the back door and cross the street to your private marina on the harbor to access boating,fishing kayaking,sailing,etc. Boat slips are available for boats up to 34ft.
Going to dinner? Dont take your car in the traffic. Captain Jimmy's water taxi will pick you up at our dock and cruise you to any of the many many restaurants/bars that line the Destin harbor!!! Glide home from dinner under the moonlight.Enjoy your margheritas and worry not!!
This unit has a queen bed in each of the bedrooms. There is a very comfortable queen pullout couch in the den.Oversize flat screen T V s in all rooms, the den has a 47' flatscreen T V that is integrated into a 5 speaker Bose surround sound theatre stereo system.!! Its like being at the movies!!!
Kitchen is fully equipped and has granite counters with stainless appliances. Both bathrooms have granite counters,upscale double vanities.Upscale matresses and bedding throughout.
There is a seperate bar with sink/fridge. Keeps the kitchen uncrowded.
Unit has wi fi internet access throughout.
This 5th floor gulf front unit is one of the most desired units at Waterview!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I grew up in Andalusia Alabama.I attended the university of Alabama then Jacksonville State. My career in organic chemistry took me to Gadsden Alabama, Atlanta, and Charlotte. When the next move was to Cleveland ,I opted to semiretire and come home to Destin.My grandparents built a home here in the 1920s and we took all our vacations here as a family when I was growing up.I am so lucky that I found this unit at Waterview Towers for my new home. It is truly a slice of paradise. I literally wouldnt trade it for any other property in Destin. I recently married a lovely lady from New Orleans and we now spend most of our time there. Consequently, I now offer this unit to my customers and hope they will enjoy it as much as I have over the years. Since it was my home for so long it is appointed like a home not like a typical rental property.It has excellent mattresses,sheets, pillows,etc. The kitchen is fully outfitted with quality pots/pans/utensils,etc. My sister is an artist, 'Patterson Barnes', and my unit has many of her original art pieces, giving my unit a more homey feel. I simply cannot sufficiently describe how much joy this unit has brought to my life. It is a special property. I hope you will come and experience the same. I hope to meet you. warmly, David Barnes

                  Why the Owner Chose Waterview Towers:
                  Waterview provides the total Destin experience, the gulf, the pass, marina on the harbor.The layout of this unit offers more window to the gulf than any other 2 br unit I have ever seen in Destin ......and of course the view is indescribably beautiful, indescribably beautiful,indescribably beautiful !!!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  unit is on the gulf/pass but also walk out the back door and keep your boat at your private marina on the harbor.....You can have it all!!
