WOW, when you arrive and look out the upstairs unit, you know you won't be leaving often. The beach might be crowed, but all you can really see is water. The hot tub and chairs also let you enjoy the ocean without the sand. If you want to walk on the beach. It is only steps away, no steps. I would recommend this property to others. There are plenty of shops and restaurants and quaint little towns nearby. Owner is helpful if needed. One suggestion, you can't quite operate the heating system from the house. Therefore, the heat was hotter than desired and the cost was higher for the owner than needed. Another good thing is the location. It is not quite in Destin or Panama, so even though we were there during a month of spring break it wasn't crowded. We got groups on the beach, but it wasn't loud or packed.
