About the Property

Sleeps 10-14 guests 6 bedrooms 4 1/2 baths

Have you ever dreamed of a place where there was peace and serenity? Where living was not a struggle but a lasting delight? Of course you have...so has everyone since time began. Sometimes it is called Utopia.
We call it Shangri-la (Lost Horizon, 1933).

Imagine the moment you arrive...your eyes focus on the emerald green waters of the Gulf...now you are standing on your own private dune walkover just steps from the pristine sugar white sand...you breathe in the salt air and feel the Gulf breeze. Whatever worldly concerns you brought with you simply wash away with the ocean waves.

WELCOME TO SHANGRI-LA, our beach home and one we proudly share with you. Built into a beautiful sand dune, rich with sea oats, Shangri-la is a 3-story, 40 foot tall, sky blue 'sand castle.' Tucked in behind it is a white picket-fenced courtyard with our 2-story guest house, La-ti-da. This courtyard is completely closed off and is an excellent area for young children or pets to play. And yes, we are PET FRIENDLY.

Both inside and out, Shangri-la and La-ti-da, some 4,000 square feet, are professionally designed and decorated, employing color and space to be both beautiful and functional. Large enough to accommodate between 10 to 14 guests(depending on the mix of adults and children), our 6 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms and common areas allow for flexibility with sleeping arrangements.

Believe it or not....there are two 12' long teakwood suspended bridges spanning the second and third floors...amazing to see...a truly one-of-a-kind experience. You will not find another vacation home like Shangri-la.
