'FOOTPRINTS BY THE SEA' 5,200+ SQ/FT LUXURY GULF FRONT 5BR/5 1/2 BATH

It has 3 Master Suites + 2 additional BRs & 5 1/2 Baths with two Florida sun rooms . The bedrooms are over-sized with king sized beds. 3 of the king beds can be separated into California twins. Our house has high end furnishings and appliances and is directly on the beach. Destin Pointe is a walking neighborhood with 24/7 security.

I found Destin, FL when I was stationed at the Pensacola Naval Air Station as a Lt. in the Naval Air Force. My wife and I built our Destin home in 2003 and have used it as much as possible while living in Atlanta, GA. Our 3 children now have families with children and we all enjoy this beautiful setting together. In fact our daughter had triplets a year ago and they are coming to the beach for the first time July 4th.

Tom Alison purchased this house in 2003

My wife and I have been coming to Destin for the 40 years that we have been married and started looking for a lot on the Gulf to build our dream home. The Destin Pointe community is below the radar and private. We found DP when our life long friends decided to build there. When we went to their new home that was it. There is no other place on the Emerald Coast that is as spectacular as this location. You will find our home at the farthest point to the west on the aerial photo attached next to the East Pass. The adjacent open area is a protected bird sanctuary and will never be built on.

We see fishing boats in the early morning making their way into the Gulf with dolphins playing nearby as we have our first cup of coffee on our Gulfside balcony. In the evening we watch the Sun setting in the West as the sail boats make their way back to Destin Harbor while we enjoy our favorite beverage. During the day you can walk to the nearby recently built pool/pavilion for a change of pace. 'Footprints By The Sea' is the vacation home that begins those wonderful memories at the beach.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We could not have asked for a more perfect place to spend our family vacation. Your home is warm and inviting and your hospitality was felt in every detail. We truly felt like welcomed guests. It exceeded our expectations!! The location is perfect!! The kids enjoyed fishing off the jetty and watching the boats come and go in the mornings and afternoons. We enjoyed every moment of our stay at "Footprints by the Sea".

PARADISE FOUND!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for all the Southern Hospitality! The gift basket was a delightful surprise. The house is absolutely wonderful and a week isn't enough time to use all the amenities. We have been coming to Destin for almost 30 years for a family vacation and this is by far the nicest house we have stayed in. We've had alot fancier and bigger but that doesn't mean that they were nicer. We enjoyed being close to everything and yet it was so quiet here. The fireworks were a nice surprise. Everyone absolutely loved the sunroom, it was so cozy. Thanks again for everything you did to make sure we had a fabulous stay!

The Lady Em was a great boat recommended by the homeowner, we caught our limit in 90 minutes!
