Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I grew up in Andalusia Alabama. Our family took all our vacations growing up in Destin since we were only 1.5 hours away. My grandparents built a home here in the 1920s!!Therefore Destin is like a home away from home to me. A place with great connection and fond memories. My career in polymer chemistry took me to Gadsden, Atlanta,then to Charlotte. I feel very fortunate to be able to call Destin my full time home now.Now I have a couple of rental condos and do some sailboat charters. sshh, my rental customers get discounted sail rates!!! Come to see us. I like meeting my customers personally!!

Why the Owner Chose Destin Gulfgate:
I love Destin Gulfgate because the units are the largest 2 bedroom units in destin that are directly on the beach. The main room is oversized.Likewise the 2nd bedroom holds TWO queen beds! Therefore Gulfgate is one of the few 2 bedroom properties that allow up to 8 people per unit. In addition,the Gulfgate building is built very close to the deep setback.. this gives a better view and shorter walk to the beach. Gulfgate is a highly desired rental property by people who know Destin.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I have tried to make this penthouse unit a 'cut above' the others at Gulfgate.As the penthouse it has higher ceilings, crown molding,is quieter ,and of course most of all... a better view!!This unit was professionally decorated in upscale fashion. The master bedroom has a top of the line sealy posturepedic matress. The sheets are 600 count pima cotton.The towels are not standard housekeeping quality, but are thicker,softer, and color coordinated. There are crystal wine glasses at the bar for red and white wine.This unit was recarpeted in january/2010. I have a library of about 50 quality books for your reading. Likewise a library of cd movies(approx 30 ) for free viewing.40'flat screen T V in den and a 32' in the master add to your comforts.the kitchen is fully equipped , even with a spice rack.brand new oversize washer/dryer,etc.With my cleaning crew, I have GUARANTEED CHECK IN TIME OF 12:00 NOON!! Thats almost like getting an extra day free!! As the penthouse level, i have tried to maintain it as 'a cut above'.My sincere thanks for your consideration of the PRISTINE PENTHOUSE.
