About JC

Christian, Husband, Father, and Outdoorsmen. All in that order...

JC purchased this condo in 1987

Why JC chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Why this property?

Why not?

My Grandparents vacationed here and brought me along to make memories so I do the same with my children. Keeping tradition makes a statement so my family made one and purchased this condo in 1987. Committed to our annual deep sea fishing trip, church functions, and family gatherings it remains one at Destin. Now, we ask other families to do the same by offering them an opportunity at Southbay by the Gulf - Unit 105. We are delighted to share our home with others. Come as you are and make a statement!

This condo was perfect for my family. Only steps to the beach, we spent every morning and every night watching the sunrise and sunset. The beach here is absolutely beautiful. I have never seen such white sand. Bring your sunglasses; you will need them! The condo was beautifully decorated and we had everything we needed. Kitchen was fully stocked and I especially like that since I love to cook. Kids could play outside in the yard and I could watch as I cooked. Pool was just a few more steps and the tennis court is right in front of you. And talk about family time.... it was all about family everywhere place we went. Thank you to the owners for sharing your lovely condo with my family. We have already made reservations for this summer.
