Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I reside in Cincinnati, OH with my wife, Leslie. We have been married over 20 years and love visiting our vacation home in Destin. As you can see, I have a healthy appetite for the local cuisine in FL.

Why the Owner Chose Miramar Beach, FL, USA:
Why not? We have always enjoyed our vacations, especially now that we have our own place in paradise. I knew other people who had purchased property in the Destin area and became intrigued at the prospect of someday owning a vacation home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that our house is peacefully secluded, yet in the middle of everything that the area has to offer in terms of shopping, restaurants, sight-seeing, and recreation.
