Harold and Linda Simpson and Claudia and John Gifford have been friends for 25 years. We have lived in the same neighborhood in Franklin, TN since we met. The Simpsons have three children, a daughter and two sons. The Giffords have two sons. The couples met while the boys were playing youth soccer, when the oldest sons were 6 and 5. The wives have been long term friends who love to hike,walk and kayak together. It was out of this friendship the idea of building this house evolved. The wives have had a blast decorating and designing this house.
Each couple love to go to the beach and enjoy having a full range of recreational activities like Sandestin provides. The overseeing of the construction and the decorating of the house was a great opportunity to have fun and to spend time together. We liked the close proximity of this area of Florida to our homes. Along with the possibility of great airline service via the New Panama City Airport which is due to be completed soon. With children, friends and family living out of state this airport would only enhance the access to this vacation spot.
Sandestin is a gated community, consisting a different neighborhoods.There is shopping, restaurants and bars, playgrounds ,pools and golf courses. It is located on both the beach side and the bay side, with a tunnel connecting the two, for walking or biking or golf carts. There is no need for a car once you are in the community. Everything is easily accessible by bike or golf cart, even the grocery store.There is a marina on the bay side where you can rent boats, jet skis, kayaks, or bring your own boat to dock. A world class tennis facility, as well as 4 championship golf courses.
If you have a car and want to venture out of Sandestin, there are restaurants, outlet shopping, water parks and numerous other activities.

Other Activities: We love the beach in Sandestin, white sand, emerald blue water,all a short golf cart ride away. But there is so muchd more to Sandestin than a beach. Inside the gates there is a marina, with boat rentals, boat slips(in case you have your own boat) , a wonderful grill to sit out and watch the sunset. Tennis, the four championship golf courses(our house is on the 2nd hole of Baytowne Golf course.) A waterside village to shop and dine and do all sorts of activites. (zip line, bungee, rock climb, ice skate, carousel,playground).Also, right outside our gates, is an ourdoor upscale shopping mall,with restaurants and green areas , all accessible by our golf cart. Summmer 2012 will bring us a new Carmike theater, also accessible by golf cart.
Despite all these wonderful things to do, your favorite might just be relaxing at The Retreat, outside on the patio overlooking the lake.
Golf: If golf is your thing, you have come to the right place. Four championship courses to choose from, designed by the top golfers in the country. All are just a short golf cart ride away from The Retreat. (you will need to rent their carts to play).Check out Sandestins home site for all the info.
