    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!!!

Can you spot the $207,744 difference between these identical homes?
