                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: My wife, kids and I live 5 miles from the property location. If there are ever any issues with the unit we are less than 10 minutes away to come help out. We've lived in the area for over 25 years and have many great recommendations to fill your days....or you can just relax by the pool or beach like we do many days.

                  Why the Owner Chose Driftwood Sands:
                  We bought this condo in 1997. After our family grew larger we needed a little more room. We decided to keep the unit and use it as rental property in 2005. Driftwood Sands only has 45 units, which makes for a nice, quiet spot to enjoy a month on the beach or longer.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We enjoy a direct view of the beach and the nightly, unpredictable and fascinating sunsets.
