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. In my full time job, I work with teens in a high school setting who have emotional and behavior disorders. My hobbies include oil painting and working with props for local stage productions. We are marching band and color guard enthusiasts. Especially, The University of Georgia Redcoats, and Atlanta Corps Vets. When we want to get away and have some family time, we head to the BEACH! We swim in the ocean, build sand castles, ride bicycles, visit unique shops, grill out on the patio, bake fresh cookies, and take long walks on the beach. 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 since 2003. Coming to Destin is now a family tradition with many great photo's and 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 our condominium 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. Southbay is one of a few properties that still has a 1 foot deep kiddy pool. 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.
