About the Property
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8
After a day soaking in the sun at the beach, celebrate your vacation with a few cannon balls into your heated private pool, before firing up the grill. Close amenities include the renowned Destin Commons, with its 75 plus stores, including the new 55,000 square foot Bass Pro Shop, Ann Taylor, Abercrombie, Hard Rock Cafe, the Rave Motion Picture theater, and the Publix grocery store, to name but a few. The Destin Commons has received over 19 million visitors so far in 2013! If golfing is your 'bag', treat yourself to any of the 15 finest, world-class golf courses available, such as Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay, 4 courses in SanDestin, and Camp Creek.
The Destin Harbor is minutes away for deep sea fishing, snorkeling, boating and jet-skiing. The harbor is your gateway to the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico! And how about the many fine eateries serving up their fresh catch of the day (many are within walking distance from Windsong by the Sea). Close by are Big Kahuna's Waterpark, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, The Track, and the Gulfarium. Good times will be had by the whole family, but make time for each other once the kids are tucked in, enjoying a glass of wine while relaxing on the front porch while breathing in the sea breezes.
Feel free to use the included wireless high-speed internet to email your boss: You’ll be staying a while longer ?, because this lifestyle is addictive!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Hi, I'm Terri Julian. I first purchased Windsong in 2005 with dreams of owning my own little piece of paradise in Destin, FL. I lived in my dream home for three wonderful years before moving back to my home town of Little Rock, AR. I couldn't bear the thought of selling the home, and since it is only 2 blocks from the beach, I installed a pool on my lot, and I began renting Windsong By The Sea out on a short-term basis back in 2004. I travel to back to Destin on a 4 or 5 times a year, and the minute I walk through the front door my heart stirs with nostalgia and affection. I love this home, and I continue to pour sweat and love into it in hopes that it just as charming to you as it is to me.
Why the Owner Chose Clipper Cove, Destin, Florida, United States of America:
Unbeknownst to me when I purchased this home, which only had one other owner previously, the location of Windsong is ideal. It is strategically located within a 2 block radius of so many wonderful amenities, including of course, the beautiful beach and a dedicated Crystal Beach beach access, to the Destin Commons Open Air Mall with its famous 49-head 'pop-up' fountain and outdoor playground, to over 30 restaurants, and a Publix GROCERY store!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Windsong By The Sea offers a wonderful front porch experience, as you relax and watch the world go by. Interesting people from states near and far, as well as from other countries(!), stroll by on the sidewalks of the seaside neighborhood of Crystal Beach. Many have their canine companions out with them so all can stretch their legs in the gulf breeze. It is such a magical place and you just want time to stand still! Windsong also offers a private pool and complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access.
