The Destin beaches are considered some of the most beautiful in the world! With sugar white sand, sand dunes, dolphins, boating, etc.. You can enjoy relaxing on the beach, visiting the many attractions including the Big Kahuna water park. Enjoy shopping at the outlet mall with water fountains for the kiddies to play.

Just down the road in Fort Walton Beach you can enjoy the Gulfarium where you can see live dolphin shows and other sea animals.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are retired with lots of family! Rick is Retired from NASA and Vanderbilt University. We moved from Brentwood TN in 2011 and are currently living in Huntsville Al for part of the year and here in Destin during the Winter months. We were both born and raised in Alabama.

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
We both visited the beach growing up with our families and then in adult years continued to visit bringing our own families to enjoy these beautiful beaches. As we were looking for a place to buy, we were brought to Destin Pointe and immediately were sold on this beautiful house and neighborhood. It is one of Destin's best kept secrets.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Nautilus and Destin Pointe provides a relaxing atmosphere, family friendly setting, safe environment, trolley service to and from beach; convenient location to grocery store, Target, entertainment and restaurants. The small pool right outside the kitchen door is perfect for small children and adults. Rooftop observatory is a unique feature in Destin Pointe because it's height gives views of the gulf, east pass and the harbor, allowing for most awesome sunrises and sunsets. Join our captain for a sunset cruise on our sailing yacht, The Space Dancer.
