Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Picture of my daughter, Claire and wife Karen. I am retired from UPS, live in Kentucky.
Why the Owner Chose Vantage Pointe: I vacationed in Sandestin for the first time in 1995 and absolutley loved it. I stayed in a friend of mines home for several years and then decided to buy myself. I like the fact that you can do anything that you want to do without leaving the Resort. It is truely a self-contained City within the confines of Destin.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: As you can see from the aerial photo, my home is secluded from the hub of action although I am no more than a mile from the beach or any other activities offered on the Resort. There is very little vehicle traffic since my homes location dead ends into the Bay. At night just steps away you can see one of the most beautiful sunsets out on the point and often times see groups of Dolphins making their way through waters right off of Vantage Point. There is also superb fishing right outside my back door with up to 6lb fish (bass) caught. If you really want to fish, just go out into the Bay that is only 90 yds from back door and try and land the red snappers or other big time game fish
