Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Jim & Vanessa Reid live in Bishop, GA (northeast of Atlanta, near Athens). Vanessa owns Divine Salon Spa & Gifts, Inc. (2009) www.divine-salon-spa.com. Hopefully this will allow her to stay off the road some & allow more time at the beach! Jim is a pilot for Allegiant Air & is based in Ft. Lauderdale. They have 3 daughters - Hailey, 28; Courtney, 27; & Kaitlyn, 23 and 2 grandchildren - Bella 8; & Caiden 4

Why the Owner Chose Gulfview:
Jim & Vanessa Reid have been going to Destin since the late 90's and purchased this condo because of the convenience and beauty. We love every minute of it! Having a family ourselves, we love that Destin offers some of the most pristine beaches in the world. Destin is very family-oriented & offers a large variety of activities for kids & adults alike. Lots of great shopping is available close by & a wide variety of delicious food is just minutes away. Some of our favorites include Old Bay Steamer, The Back Porch Pompano Joe's, The Crab Trap, Captain Dave's, Bonefish Grill & Callahan's and Bayou Bill's Seafood.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our Gulfview property is very convenient to the beach, only about 200 yards away. It offers easy access to local shopping & area restaurants. We enjoy getting up in the mornings and going for walks or bicycle rides for an early breakfast & then head to the beach!!
