We purchased the fastest internet plan available and also added internet boosters throughout the home. We spent thousands of dollars on our landscaping to clear an access point from behind our home to a beach volleyball court and for our guests to have faster access to the beach. We have two large boxes of beach gear for our guests to use as well as small patio we are currently setting up to allow for families to sit behind the home to face a grassy easement area where the kids can play; they don't have to play in the street. There is also an outdoor grill. Can't top this home!
WHO ARE WE? We love to travel and see the way others see the world. In our travels as a military family, we have not found a more peaceful and beautiful retreat than Destin. We have devoted every bit of loving care to details in our home to share the joyful experiences our family has had in Destin with our guests. Baby showers, college reunions, family reunions, and many other treasured memories have graced this home. It is a place of light and laughter, which is why we have named it "Light of Mine." In keeping with this theme, our home is illuminated with custom lighting, which colors can be adjusted to suite the color palette of your vacation.
