Townhome, 1 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom on the Bay
Luxury VIP villa:
Quiet privacy and water views prevail in this corner townhouse located on pristine Choctawhatchee Bay facing six miles of water and incredible sunsets. An electric fireplace adds to the cozy atmosphere at night. Enjoy the refreshing pool around the corner. Upgraded kitchen includes sub-zero fridge, convection oven and is chocked full of Pampered Chef tools for those who like to cook and grill. Resort restaurants are 1 mile away for those who don't want to touch the kitchen.
The high vaulted ceilings give the main room an expansive feel. With the enclosed lanai, there is plenty of space to spread out so you can relax and experience a vacation as you should; no worries, lots of entertainment, and relaxing waters to gaze on at the end of the day.
Easy bike or car ride to the beach or The Village of Baytowne Wharf - a New Orleans styled village featuring restaurants, bars, shops, live music, a merry-go-round, zip line, winter ice skating and seasonal fireworks.
Breathe deeply the ambience of this perfect vacation spot which is as pretty as Disney and entertaining as a nature preserve. Frequent heron, bird and dolphin sightings. Enjoy the fun of the beach and the busy, night life in the Village, then come home to peaceful quiet. North Shore properties are mostly non-rental units where residents keep an orderly but friendly complex. The owners, Chris and Joe Manion, reside full-time at their home next door. They are always happy to answer any questions that might make your stay more enjoyable.
Our renters call this airy unit 'dreamy,' 'first class,' 'The Ritz!' and 'the pictures don't do it justice.'

About Chris Manion
We left Chicago winters behind to live in this dreamy resort and wish to share it with as many as we can. The soul needs beauty to restore itself from time to time. We live on the property, so if you need anything, we're close at hand. Our son is a Second Class Petty Officer for the U.S. Coast Guard; our daughter teaches high school English in Michigan. We are proud of them both and highly supportive of families and parents who raise them. We are happily married 40 years and love welcoming newlyweds!
Chris Manion purchased this Townhome in 2006
Why Chris Manion chose Sandestin
People familiar with Sandestin repeatedly said that this unit was the nicest they had stayed in. These were visitors who had been coming to the area for 20 or more years. We dismissed the comments the first few times; after the fourth comment, we began to take them seriously. We didn't realize we had such a gem! The resort's beauty is widely known; the peace at North Shore is rarely found. I don't think we will ever tire of the water view...
What makes this Townhome unique
You just can't get much closer to the water! In the 2nd picture with table and chairs, that's the Bay where the grass ends! Very spacious, calming decor matches the peacefulness outside. We have beach chairs and an umbrella available for our guests. Tennis on clay and hard court, 72 holes of incredible golf, great lessons from pros, kayaking (with the dolphins) on the Bay or Gulf, fishing & crabbing right out your door, #1 beaches in the continental US (per US Travel & Leisure). The high vaulted ceilings give the main room an expansive feel. With the enclosed lanai, there is plenty of space to spread out so you and your family or friends can relax and experience a vacation as you should; no worries, lots of entertainment, and relaxing waters to gaze on at the end of the day. Hang out by the fire, grab a drink and some cards or dominoes, or peruse the book drawer. It is always stocked with a variety of good books. See how many satellites or meteors you can count from your private balcony. With no major city lights to bog up the sky, every visible star is waiting to twinkle at you and your loved ones. On calm nights, you'll see them reflected in the Bay's waters.

Beautiful view and relaxing
Loved my stay here the home is very comfortable and relaxing
Property is in beautiful condition
Joe and Chris were very helpful making our stay on Northshore Drive, delightful. We look forward to returning to this condo.
The townhome was clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for peace and quiet and access to the beach and all the amenities of Baytowne.
Beautiful is an understatement.
We knew the place would be beautiful because we have been coming to the resort and stayed at other places for 10 years. What we didn't know was the support we received from the
Manion family and their reservation manager. The comfort feeling knowing we were a phone call away from any concerns as well as being treated like "family". Highly recommended !
Rainy, cold visit; warm, cozy retreat!
Beautiful, well-appointed rental. Owners supplied everything needed for a delightful stay. Although the weather left a lot to be desired, the condo didn’t. I’d like to return and take advantage of the surrounding walking trails.
