Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My wife and I have been vacationing in NW Florida for 25 years. For years we vacationed in Pensacola Beach, but several years ago we discovered Destin! We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have. George & Chris, Richland, MI

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
While vacationing in Pensacola Beach, people mentioned how much there was to do in Destin. In fact our first visit many years ago was to the Big Kahunas water park (coincidentally 1/4 mi from the Loveshack). Destin has a beautiful harbor, the whitest beaches, golf, shopping and great dining. There is so much to see and do that we were hooked and decided to buy a property. We found our home, 'the Loveshack', in the Dunes of Destin gated community.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home has a private pool with a large deck the borders the lake and fountains. The neighborhood has a community pool as well. To top it all off the beach is 150 ft away with a private service to arrange beach furniture. The views of the Gulf and Lake are stunning and the private beach means lots of space for the kids to play. The home itself has 5 bedrooms and a large living space with a wall of windows that faces the lake, providing peaceful views and privacy. A balcony of the front Master Bedroom provides restricted Gulf views.
