“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” – Henry James
Peruse this collection of the latest real estate sales offerings to come onto the market here in Alys Beach. The Panhandle of Florida has recently been placed on the top of the list of vacation rental markets in the U.S. based on highest return on investment by Rented Inc. and Weiss Analytics’ fifth annual analysis, which speaks to the vivacious activity we’ve seen over the last several months in the Alys Beach Sales Office. Certainly, as way of life has shifted around the COVID-19 phenomenon, our appreciation for this slice of beauty along Scenic Highway 30A has been bolstered.
As a luxury Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND), Alys Beach is designed to encourage connection within the privacy of the individual homes as well as within the community in a marriage of common and private spaces. As we look to refresh, relax, and soak up the summer, the world class amenities and natural resources within Alys Beach answer the shift we are seeing in our priorities and perspectives. School and work days have become more transient and flexible, and our lives adjust from the bustle to focus on safe, meaningful connection with our families, our community, and the natural world around us.
Thank you for joining us for the Third Edition of The Alys Journal. We hope that you are enjoying your summer, whether with us in Alys Beach in body or in spirit. In the wise words of John Lubbock, turn-of-the-century British politician and naturalist, “Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”
