Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have always enjoyed the beauty of the coast, especially the Gulf of Mexico Emerald Coast with snow white sand. The decision to share our vacation home was a decision we made shortly after we purchased the property in 2013. We hope our guests will feel pampered, and relaxed when they visit Bella Vista.

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
We searched the Destin area for beach property for several months. When our realtor crossed the bridge to Okaloosa Island, we saw the beautiful sand dunes and sea oats, and decided to extend our search just West of Destin. We looked at several (quite a few, really) properties in the Destin area and on Okaloosa Island; but when we entered the door of this condo and saw the gorgeous emerald water against the blue sky we knew we had found our place. Since we purchased this property because of the Beautiful View, we decided to give it the name: 'Bella Vista.'

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
No high-rise buildings, less traffic, pristine (less crowded) beaches. We are near the center of the property on the top floor. We love it here.
