Must be something in the water-view.


It seems like everyone wants to live on the water either in Destin, Niceville, Fort Walton Beach or Shalimar. So now you have to decide what type of waterfront you desire. Do you want to live on the Gulf, the Bay, a Bayou or a Lake (yes some lakes are connected to the Bay or a bayou).


You'll need to answer a bunch of questions. Today we'll start with just one. What Water View do you want?


The three things you need to know about the view:


  1. Will your Shalimar or Fort Walton Beach waterfront home be on the Bay with a view of Destin and Okaloosa Island? Or maybe on Poquito Bayou, Chula Vista, Don’s Bayou, Gardner's Bayou, or Cinco Bayou, with a peaceful view of the water and other bayou front homes? The location also matters if you're looking for a sunrise or a sunset view.
  2. Will your waterfront home be in Destin with a choice of the northern exposure of the Choctawhatchee Bay looking at Shalimar and Fort Walton Beach? Perhaps it will be a Gulf-front home or condo looking out at the white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. There are also a few small bayous in Destin: Joe’s Bayou, and Jones Bayou.  
  3. Will your Niceville waterfront home be on the Bay with a view of Destin and Okaloosa Island? Or will it be on Tom’s Bayou, Boggy Bayou or Rocky Bayou with families, boating and lots of water activities? 


When you are in the market for a waterfront home you want to make sure you consider many facts. First thing is view. You need to check-out the view at different times of the day and in all seasons as well.
