We are originally from Maine. Moved to the greater Atlanta area over 10 years ago.
We chose this property because we enjoy vacationing in Destin. We found this property to be in the best part of Destin: across the street from the beach and minutes away from restaurants, shopping, and Destin's many other amenities.
