Owner info

About the owner: We are a recently retired military family. We met in Destin 25 years ago when we were both on active duty in the United States Air Force. The military has had us living all over the country but of all the places we've been, Destin is our favorite. VRBO|HomeAway: Destin Florida Vacation Rental Beachfront

Why the Owner Chose Sunchase:
We picked this property because we step off our deck onto the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We are gulf front! We have a private beach that we share with 9 other units. There is nothing quite like sitting on your porch during a beautiful sunny day or a stormy rainy day and just watching the ocean. We love it here and know you will too! We've tried to make 'You Are My Sunshine' a place we love to stay. We've added new bedding, decor, and other conveniences. We plan to keep improving and updating the furnishings on an on-going basis.
