Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: This property is owned by four Whatley siblings, children of the late Janie G. Whatley, original owner of the house. We all grew up in Dothan, AL and have been beach goers all of our lives. We fell in love with the Thomas Drive area many years ago, away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip, but only a short drive from many of the beach attractions. The uncrowded beach here is a great plus for families wanting to enjoy peace and serenity but be close enough to enjoy top-notch restaurants, St. Andrews Park, marinas and amusement parks.

Why the Owner Chose Crescent Beach, Lower Grand Lagoon, FL, USA:
We rented in this area and others up and down the beach before we bought any property. We decided this was the spot for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The original house was destroyed by Hurricane Opal and we rebuilt in 1996. We updated the house in 2013 with a new metal roof, new doors, outside paint and inside furnishings.
