About Olivia Woodard
Hello! My name is Olivia and I have managed this property since November of 2019. My mother owned and operated this property that we call ‘Seaside Serenity’ since 2004. Her full-time job was working with teens in a high school setting who have emotional and behavior disorders. Mom fought breast cancer from November 2018 to July 2019. My sisters and I have managed the condo with mom's heart for our little home-away-from-home in mind. Mom always loved the beach at Southbay By the Gulf. There was nothing better than sitting on the beach, and floating in the clear, blue ocean water with her. 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 and managing this rental property for mom is all the wonderful guests and neighbors that we 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. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about Seaside Serenity or our story.
Why Olivia Woodard chose Destin
My parents had been snorkeling and scuba diving for many years. They also enjoy swimming and shell collecting with my sisters and husband. Our favorite place to vacation was the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. We have been vacationing in Destin since 2004, and have never turned back. Coming to Destin is now a family tradition with many great photo's and memories. We insisted that our property be very family oriented. We fell in love with Southbay as it captures the charm of old Florida and our condominium has the feel of a nice beach cottage, not a hotel room. Guests comment on how 'relaxed and at home' they feel at Seaside Serenity. We hope you make as many fun memories here as we have.
What makes this Townhome unique
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. Enjoy a private patio to grill delicious family dinners and a small garden in which to putter. Mom planted an orange and lime tree in the back yard a few years ago. They have grown into beautiful, fruit-bearing trees. 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. We love walking to the local Mellow Mushroom Pizza restaurant after our drive down to the condo.
