Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We are a large family with four young kids and loving grandparents who all love the Emerald Coast with its miles of perfect beaches, countless amenities and wonderful climate.

Why Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
After living in the area for five years on two different assignments with the Air Force our family fell in love with the Destin area. We were fortunate to get the opportunity to purchase a family retreat that is large enough to bring three generations together in the heart of the Emerald Coast.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Destin West is the jewel of Destin area resorts. It is a one of a kind paradise that brings the beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay and Gulf of Mexico together to combine the best of both worlds. It is packed with some of the areas very best amenities. Our children can literally spend hours in the Lazy River, zero-entry pool and splash park. Located in the very heart of the area we love walking to the Boardwalk, restaurants and shopping on the island and are just 5 minutes across 4 miles of secluded beach from Destin. Minutes from the best golf courses, dining, outlet shopping, theme parks, the airport, and both Air Force Bases you could not pick a more central location for a home away from home. We selected our condo because of the luxury, size, and amazing views. At 1776 Sq/ft it is an oversized three bedroom that can easily accommodate our large family with space to spread out and relax. The master suite, great room, and large patio offer sweeping views of the bay that we wish we could wake up every day to!
