Genoa Homes

Where every home has a view.

Welcome to Genoa

Where every home has a view
Walking around Genoa, some ask themselves, “Is this Florida or Italy?” The neighborhood is surrounded by water in beautiful Sandestin. The Tuscan-style homes of Genoa increase the sense of walking along a Mediterranean beach town. The limited number of plots further ensures the exclusivity of these luxurious homes. When locals cross the rustic stone bridge into their private community, they traverse into another place, as if on a European vacation right here in America. 
The residents of Genoa enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle within this community in the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. They have deep-sea fishing right at their fingertips. Residents head out to Wednesday's Concert Series, on any given Wednesday, all summer long. It’s easy to enjoy kayaking on the lake, volleyball at the beach, and a day of golf at one of the many prestigious local golf clubs. It’s a beautiful short drive to the Baytowne Golf Club or The Links Golf Club
