Rob and Leisa Tobler live in Maryland year-round, where Rob, an active-duty Air Force pilot, is stationed at Andrews AFB. They have three children. Leisa grew up in Northwest Florida, and met Rob when he was stationed there in 1993. They long to return to the Northwest Florida Beaches they call home, but are happy to share their dream home with families from all over the world, until that dream becomes a reality. Because they understand first-hand the sacrifice of military families, they offer discounted stays to active duty military and veterans.
We WON this home! It was the 2008 WindMark Beach Idea House from MyHomeIdeas.com -- a website affiliated with Southern Living and Coastal Living publications. By a stroke of good fortune, we won the home through an internet contest, similar to the HGTV Dream Home competition. In order to keep the home, we rent the home to other families. We've found half the blessing was the win, and the other half was getting to know the families who vacation here -- hearing the stories of the memories created here brings us great joy!
This is a true get-away-from-it-all destination. Tranquil and peaceful beaches. Stunning sunsets. Delicious seafood. And breathtaking sunsets. The porches at the home seem to go on forever, making it a perfect destination for friends and families to escape their busy lives, and reconnect with each other. The area boasts amazing opportunities for fishing, scalloping, and relaxation. Boat parking is available at WindMark Beach for those who wish to explore our local bays and waterways.
