Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Steve & Shirley Linahan live in Santa Rosa Beach, FL where we manage and operate several businesses. My wife and I are both licensed Florida Realtors, operate a Margarita Machine rental franchise, Margarita Man Emerald Coast and work in the beach home real estate market.

Why the Owner Chose Gulfview Heights, Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
Because we fell in love with the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast of Florida. We felt this home was perfect to allow us to share it with our family and all our new friends we meet each year.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are continually updating and upgrading our home which faces the beach and is just a short stroll on a sidewalk. We always love to talk about the beach and the 30A area, give Shirley or I a call...512-923-5400.
