Description: Enjoy amazing and rare 270 degree panoramic views from this unusual, 5th floor direct gulf front end unit with wraparound balcony!

Our last name is Luce, (Spanish for "light") and we call this treasure "La Casa De Luce", the "House of Light", and how appropriate!

Sugar white sands and emerald waters await when you arrive at one of the highest rated beaches in North America. This direct gulf front condominium is located on Okaloosa Island's pure white beaches, just minutes west of Destin, FL. "the luckiest Fishing village in the world."

One of the newer complexes on the island, this smaller 44 unit condominium has a more personal, less crowded family atmosphere than those massive complexes with hundreds of the same old, cookie cutter floor plans.

This is located away from the traffic and noisy congestion of downtown Destin, yet close enough for convenient access to the fine restaurants, nightlife and water sports in the area. Santa Rosa Boulevard terminates at a federal reserve, so traffic is limited, but miles of untouched beaches are within walking distance.

With approximately 1,250 square feet of luxury living space, this unit has an oversized master bedroom with king size bed, and a huge 8x6 picture window directly overlooking the Gulf of Mexico's crystal clear waters. With its own bathroom and balcony door, this master allows seclusion and privacy with amazing views.

The guest bedroom has a queen size bed with bathroom and a roomy closet. The open floor plan of the fully equipped kitchen allows for beautiful views to the south and west toward Navarre beach. Sit at the breakfast bar and enjoy your coffee with 20 mile shoreline views to the west. Both the master and guest bedrooms are carpeted wall to wall.

The living room/dining area has a full height mirrored wall for beach views from any angle. This professionally decorated condominium is tastefully furnished with tiled floors throughout the living/dining room, kitchen and secluded entry. Queen size fold out sofa and overstuffed chair in the living room for those quiet reading times.

Conveniently located near the elevator, even the entrance balcony and guest bedroom have wonderful views of Santa Rosa Sound and the intercoastal waterway to the North.

The wraparound balcony is open to the sky and offers incredible 270 degree views to the east, south, west and north. Get that great tan without even leaving the condominium, or just relax and enjoy the sound of the surf and seagulls. Dolphins often make a much welcome guest appearance within yards of the beautiful white sand beach.

Take a much needed break from the every day grind, and visit this unusual getaway with a quiet family atmosphere! Please, no smoking, and although we love animals, we regret we cannot accept pets.
