Average Rating for this Community

I am very excited to see This 55+ margaritaville community being built in the panhandle There is nothing like this in the area I think this will bring many different people into the panhandle where are the beaches are pure white sugar sand and the gulf is as nice as being in the Caribbean this area has many beautiful shopping areas also with Many free activities and concerts Panama City Beach is a small country beach town with all modern conveniences I think it’s the best kept secret in Florida this will be a very popular Community to be part of and to live at especially being on the waterway


Finally! I'm so excited for the new development at West Bay. There are no 55+ retirement communities in Northwest Florida or South Alabama. Latitude Margaritaville at Watersound will be GREAT for seniors based on location, amenities being offered, pricing of homes, closeness to airport, completion of Hwy 79 four lanes to I-10 and four seasons of weather, which is different from Central and South Florida. Hurry up and get started!!!
