Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We Love our place at SouthBay, a lot of good memories have been made here. We love the beach and the Sunset is out of this world. Being on the beach late afternoon is so peaceful then going for a good dinner at Dewey Destin and meeting our friends .Love being with our family at the beach at Southbay for years. If you are interested in looking to buy please ask me about SouthBay.

Why the Owner Chose Southbay by the Gulf:
So much to do in Destin, and the white Sand on the beach is out of this world. This is one of the best places for children. Please ask me about some of the places to go all around Destin.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
One of the best places to go shopping. You will love Destin Commons, the outlets are just a short drive from our condo. We love to go to Ross, and I love to go to Baytown, of course Chico's is my best place to shop. Old Time Pottery is one of the best places to enjoy just picking up items to take home. Some of the small shops are my favorite. HARBOR WALK ON THURSDAY NIGHT WITH FIRE WORKS. The New BoChamps on the water.
