Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: When we were growing up our families always vacationed in Destin. We continued the tradition, but instead of building castles in the sand, we sat on the beach and daydreamed about someday having a place of our own in Destin. That dream came true in 2005 when we bought our first condo at Southbay by the Gulf, affectionately known as the 'Dream Chaser'. We love the beach and enjoy fishing, so we found the perfect getaway overlooking a beautiful 5-acre lake and just a short stroll to the beach through Southbay's tropical foliage. This is our piece of paradise and we enjoy it so much. We hope you will allow us to share it with you, your family and friends!
Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
Southbay by the Gulf is a tropical paradise. The grounds and the buildings are very well-maintained. Southbay has many amenities including two swimming pools (one is heated), lighted tennis courts, clubhouse, reserved parking at your front door, 5-acre fishing lake, direct beach access, etc. It is in walking distance to restaurants, shops, water park, amusement park, grocery stores, and of course, the BEACH!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You will enjoy this beautifully decorated two-story condo/townhouse. It has recently been updated with new stylish floor tile and carpet, fresh paint, renovated kitchen, and new accessories throughout. You have reserved parking right at the front door and a keyless entry, so no crowded elevators and no keys to keep up with. There are two bedrooms (kingsize and queensize) with adjoining baths downstairs and a queensize sleeper sofa upstairs. The spacious living room, dining room, kitchen, 1/2 bath and laundry room are upstairs. Two large balconies overlook the lake and are perfect for relaxing while you enjoy your favorite beverage and watch the sunset. This is a place for making lasting memories and one that you will want to return to year after year!
