Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hello! My name is Diane and I have been the owner/manager of a beautiful townhouse that we call ‘Seaside Serenity’ since 2004. I am an Instructional Designer, oil painter, and enjoy marching bands, drum corps, and of course the BEACH! Beach time is family time. We swim in the ocean, build sand castles, ride bicycles, visit unique shops, try new restaurants and take long walks on the beach. I enjoy volunteering in my community. I am an educator and volunteer for the Georgia House Rabbit Society. This is an organization that runs a rescue shelter for domestic rabbits. In our home we have two rabbits of our own and have fostered many adoptable rabbits over the years. The thing I love the best about owning rental property is the wonderful guests and neighbors that I have gotten to know over the years. People that I otherwise would not have met. We are very fortunate to have a large number of repeat guests.

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
My husband and I have been snorkeling and scuba diving for many years. We also enjoy swimming and shell collecting as a family. Our favorite place to vacation was the caribbean. When we moved to the Atlanta area from Orlando, we discovered that the beaches of Destin were as beautiful as the caribbean and an easy drive from the Atlanta area. We have been vacationing in Destin for 10 years. It is now a family tradition full of memories. We insisted that our property be in a very family oriented development. We fell in love with Southbay as it captures the charm of old Florida and has the feel of a cottage, not a hotel room. Guests comment on how 'relaxed and at home' they feel at Seaside Serenity.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We enjoy having a private beach and pool less than two minutes from our doorstep. A private patio to grill delicious family dinners and a small garden in which to putter. I have planted an orange and lime tree in the back yard. We can hear the ocean from our doorstep and enjoy watching pods of dolphins from the beach. Our development is quiet and tucked back by the ocean yet we can be at any restaurant or at great shopping in 10 minutes or less.
