I am a photographer and nature lover who enjoys walking the beach and the trails to observe wildlife, discover things, or see them in a new way. The mid-west can be cold in winter, so I chose a property far enough south to escape even the worst weather! I enjoy fine dining, so a varied fitness schedule is a regular part of my life. Exploring this area's rich history, ecosystem, people, and culture always presents me with opportunities to try new things and keep life exciting!
It's a great value and worry free! I fell in love with this particular part of the Gulf Coast, and this property offered me all of the amenities I was looking for in a vacation home-- along with million dollar views! My condo and the picturesque grounds are always well maintained, offering me the old Florida experience when I want it (and pampering when I need it!) There is really no need for me to leave the property. I park my car and immediately start to unwind.
Where else will you find a beach, great views, heated pools with wait service, boat rental, a fitness center, a spa, restaurants, bars, even an ice cream shop, steps from the door of your vacation home? However, there are times you just don't feel like going out. I can still prepare dinner in my full kitchen, have a glass of wine on the lanai, and kick back. Need I say more?
