This is a perfect getaway for relaxing in the Florida sun. Featuring a two story, two bedroom, two and a half bath townhouse/condo situated on the beach side of Highway 98 (no roads to cross) on a beautiful five-acre fresh water lake, and just a three - four minute stroll through Southbay's tropical paradise to the sugar-white beach Destin is so famous for. Two huge balconies catch the sun and the gulf breezes, and the large living area on the second floor is perfect for families or just a romantic getaway for two.

This privately-owned, spacious, beautifully decorated townhouse offers everything you can imagine for the perfect beach vacation. Recently upgraded with finishes that include Travertine tile and hardwood floors, crown molding, stainless steel appliances, Travertine tile showers, Jacuzzi tub, and much more. Includes Wi-Fi and 50" HDTV in living room and additional flat-screen LED TV's in both bedrooms. Fully equipped kitchen, full-size washer & dryer, fresh linens, en-suite bathrooms, private balconies (w/patio furniture and grill), reserved parking at your front door (no elevators) and keyless entry.

Our ideal location gives you quiet, relaxing beach time, but is just minutes from a water park, putt-putt golf, and an amusement park for the kids. If you're looking for a little excitement in the evening, we're close to dozens of fantastic restaurants and night entertainment.  As an option, you can just relax on either of the two large private decks as you sip your favorite beverage, listen to tunes, grill fresh Florida seafood or steaks, and enjoy watching the ducks, fish and turtles in the lake below.  Fishing is allowed, so be sure to bring your fishing gear.

Southbay's amenities include two large swimming pools with restroom facilities, two lighted tennis courts, pickle ball court, shuffleboard, reserved parking for each unit, a freshwater lake for fishing from your deck or gazebo, and 300 feet of private beach with beach service. Mingle with friends and enjoy breath-taking sunrises and sunsets from Southbay's gazebo located directly on the beach.

Complimentary beach service (two chairs and umbrella) for each day of your stay ... valued at $245.00.

Doug and Helen

A satisfied renter from Ontario, Canada    Mar 18, 2018

This unit is like a home away from home. You will find everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. An upper and lower deck to relax with your morning coffee, or enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset.. Just a short walk to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico with its emerald waters. So many things to do and see, several restaurants to enjoy a meal out or take advantage of the well-equipped kitchen and prepare a meal in the unit. Parking right outside the door. Shopping nearby, large outlet mall about a 20 minute drive. Golfing close by. You won't be disappointed, it has everything you could want to get away for a fun relaxing vacation

Jeannie Carter's reply:

Helen and Doug, It was a pleasure to have you as our guest and very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Glad our vacation home provided you with all of the comforts of home and you were able to relax a bit, as well as enjoy the beautiful beach and all of the other things that Destin has to offer. We hope you'll come back again soon!
