The Bay: Luxurious Oasis on Ft. Walton's Bay Drive

Welcome to The Bay!

"The Bay" is a beautiful, quiet, luxurious home with one of the best views on Choctawhatchee Bay. This home is located on Bay Drive which is home to Ft. Walton Beach's most premier bayfront properties. Views extend from Shalimar to Ft. Walton Beach and include Destin's Mid-Bay Bridge, Crab Island, the Destin Harbor, and more.


Seated on a half acre of waterfront property, this home is sure to have something for everyone. The private dock is open to swimmers and boaters alike. There is a small boat launch just a mile down the street which is hidden from all but the locals. If you like fishing, or even watching for them, we've got you covered there too. Large and small crabs, redfish, mullet, shrimp, stingrays, and even dolphin are frequent visitors to our oasis here. Like to walk, run, or bike? Bay Drive has you covered. It's the prettiest street in town, with Spanish moss drooping from our beautiful trees. We are also less than a mile from Ferry Park which has tennis courts, a zipline, baseketball courts, a walking trail, frisbee golf, and more. We are also very close to the Ft. Walton Yacht Club, and from our dock you can watch Regatta (sailboat races) every Wednesday of summer.


The inside of The Bay is just as exciting as the outside. It has the finest furnishings with a classy, coastal charm. Beautiful granite and high end cabinetry work fill the kitchens and baths. Floor to ceiling windows are sure the please the eye. Both the Master Bedroom and Guest Bedroom Suite have gorgeous views of the Choctawhatchee Bay. From the kitchen you can overlook the waterfront while preparing the next meal. Floors are whitewashed hardwoods. No expense was spared.


This home includes 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. It can sleep 10 people in beds plus 2 on a sofa bed. The driveway has room for 6 cars, or a few less and a boat trailer. There is an outdoor swing on the patio, as well as a tree swing for the kids. An outdoor shower is located on the side of the home to leave the sand outside. The garage and master bedroom closet are locked for owner use and are excluded from use.


If you want to bring your boat, you may certainly do so. Jet skis are welcome here, too. We have a dock with ropes and bumpers waiting for you. If you want to kayak, bring it. Snorkeling, shelling, fishing, swimming, or just doing absolutely nothing....This is your private playhouse and has everything for your dream vacation in your private backyard. When you want to go to the beach, there are seven local access points within 2 miles of our driveway. Come enjoy the quiet side of Destin/Ft. Walton Beach!

The Bay let our dreams fly

Kitty Hawk kites LOVES DANICA!!!! We had a lot of special requests, and a very tight budget. She met every need beyond expectations, via text and email she was incredibly responsive and effective. Absolutely the BEST experience I have ever had in literally any traveling situation ever. I refuse to ever look elsewhere. I would put all my money on her, and always will. Thank you so much for being the most crucial part of our mission: to teach the world to FLY!!!

The Bay

My family and I had a wonderful experience during our week staying in The Bay house. We enjoyed the extra space and quiet neighborhood but still less than 3 miles away from the beach.

I would highly recommend the Bay house and/or using Danica with waterscape. Great host and always quick with responses.
