                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: My husband and I (Bill and Nancy Aden) live in Blacksburg, Virginia. For years we visited friends in Destin and absolutely fell in love with the 30A area - especially the Seacrest, Alys and Rosemary Beach area. We have five grown sons who also come visit us when we get down to the beach ourselves. It's amazing how popular we have become with family since we own a beach house. This is our second home and we want other large families/groups to enjoy our home and the beach as much as we do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sandy Shores:
                      My husband and I vacationed here for several years and fell in love with the beach. Seacrest, Rosemary and Alys is the most beautiful area along 30A and is perfect for your vacation too.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      While staying at our property, you will come to love the beach as much as we do. Whether you are having a family reunion, attending a wedding at either Rosemary or Alys, or want to have your own wedding on our beach (which is just as beautiful), or just a group of friends or families wanting the perfect vacation spot, our house is the right choice for you. Our street is private, gated and safe. We have numerous upscale restaurants all within walking distance and shopping is nearby.
