About Ann and Tom Haller

The unit is owned and managed by Ann and Tom Haller. We have twin sons and are now empty nesters living in historic Annapolis, Maryland. We have rented our home in Annapolis to the families of the United States Naval Academy graduates for their families for Commissioning Week. We are excited to have made Sandestin our second home and look forward to sharing it with others who will come to love Sandestin as much as we do.

Beach Therapy is our second home and is outfitted like a home and not just a rental condo. We manage and maintain our VRBO listing ourselves and are available to answer any questions that you may have. You will feel as if you are a guest in our home when you stay with us.

Ann and Tom Haller purchased this condo in 2011

Why Ann and Tom Haller chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We first visited Sandestin 1993 when our boys were only four and fell in love with it!! Since our first visit, we have travelled throughout the Southeast and the Caribbean but never found a better resort community with as many features and activities. The beaches are spectacular, perfect for young children and sunset walks. We have traveled all over the Caribbean,Mexico and Hawaii. We have never found a beach as beautiful. Our children are grown now but there is just as much to do, we have just as much fun, as we did when our children were young. There is something for every age and interest here. With so many vacation spots, you outgrow them as your family ages, but not here. The Northwest Florida area offers a new regional airport, shopping,wildlife,recreation, and restaurants with great seafood.

We own and operate our condo, so when you inquire about our property, we will answer as soon as possible.

We keep our own calendar updated with each inquiry.

We also offer concierge Services. They will do all your grocery shopping and errands prior to your stay. They can also arrange for boat rentals and other sightseeing activities.

What makes this condo unique

We love that the activities that we like to do are so accessible. The biggest advantage to this unit is access to the beach. The beach is right outside the door. The second floor location is right on the walkway to the beach so there is no waiting for elevators. It makes it easy to go in a fix a quick lunch or cool drink without leaving the beach too long.

Tom can go play golf and I can spend the day at the beach or spa. We can play tennis, golf (regular and miniature), go to restaurants,and listen to live music without ever leaving the resort. We also provide access to the Sunshine Shuttle!!! This shuttle service is available to all our guests!! Just wear a wristband and ride the shuttle all over the resort. So, much more convenient than getting in the car and driving to the Baytowne Wharf or Marina or any other location in the resort. Especially, when you are visiting during a festival or holiday weekend.

Most of all, we love the sunsets. You can be as active or as inactive as you like.

Beautiful condo. Everything extremely clean and condo included everything you would need for "beach" vacation! In very safe, gated community with a lot of restaurants and shopping close by. Will definitely rent it again.

This condo was perfect for a girls getaway! We went to relax and this place was amazing. The entire condo is updated with beautiful decor and extremely clean. They had very nice top quality beach chairs with an umbrella for us to use, along with coolers and beach bags. The location of this condo being on the second floor made it very convenient to carry things to and from the beach. There are plenty of restaurants close by and even in walking distance to grab lunch on the beach. The owners were very easy to talk to and answered all of my questions quickly. I would definitely book this condo again for future stays!

Had a wonderful stay at this beachfront property. Nicely decorated and well maintained condo. All the comforts of home especially when traveling with kids. Owners are great and wonderful to work with. Highly recommend this property and the convenience of Baytowne Wharf just 5 minutes away.
