The amenities. When I speak with people considering buying a new home in Hammock Bay I always ask why Hammock Bay is so appealing? Nine times out of ten they mention the great amenities offered as one of the big reasons. To have a community that has pools, tennis courts, basketball court, pickleball courts, gym, movie theatre room, General Store, Event green with stage and gazebo, dog park, etc. is not an easy find.
Of course, a community like this has an association to keep everything nice. I encourage anyone considering moving to Hammock Bay to read through the Association Documents prior to purchasing. You can find them here
Ok, so some of you may read that title and be wondering what’s wrong with me because Hammock Bay Freeport is about 25 minutes from almost everything except the local places in Freeport. Well, that’s a fair question, but nothing is wrong with me! If you take out a map and find Destin, Panama City Beach, Interstate 10 and the Beach right smack in the middle is…you guessed it…Freeport! So even though there may not be all of the dining and shopping you are looking for (YET) you are but a short 25-minute drive in any direction to find what you are looking for.
For my military types, many of my friends and neighbors in Hammock Bay work at 7th group SF, Navy EOD, and Eglin AFB and they say that the drive is very manageable. 35-40 minutes to Eglin. 45 minutes to 7th group (using the toll through Niceville) 25 minutes to EOD school.
