"This is a lovely, cozy home steps away from the sugar soft sand with unobstructed views of the ocean and horizon. The home is well-equipped, comfortable, and includes some unique ocean-themed decorations, like a carved wooden figurehead overlooking the living area. We loved it! Our family visit began on the Sunday before Labor Day and continued through the next week. The first two days we enjoyed intermingling with the many others who came to enjoy the last few days of the summer season on the beach. It was a vibrant scene of tanned bodies of all makes and sizes, colorful umbrellas, kids building sand castles and people strolling the beach, dipping in and out of the waves. On Tuesday morning, with others returning to work and school, we found a much quieter beach scene. We dropped into a more relaxed mode as sand, sea, and sky became the focus. We spent hours sitting on the expansive deck under the shading screen overlooking this view, reading, watching sea birds soar, and pointing out the occasional boat making its way slowly across the horizon. When we roused ourselves for food or more activity, we found many good options very close by. We drove to Seaside to dine and shop, had a fun time at Kahuna's Water Park in Destin, and checked out the Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall. While all was fun, the part of our vacation that will most remain with us is the relaxing view from the perch of this seaside home."
