Mainsail in Miramar Beach: A new look at a classic property

Published: Friday, October 5, 2012 at 01:09 PM.

The land was first developed by Dewitt "Sparky" Lovelace. In addition to the condo high-rises, Mainsail includes 10 townhouse units and 21 single-family cottages. The cottages were developed after Lovelace completed his portion of Mainsail.

Mainsail's condos and townhouses share a homeowners association, while the cottages have a separate association along with fees paid for use of all the resort amenities.

The association, Smith said, takes seriously its duties, particularly the board members.

"The group of people involved, they never miss meetings, which means they care," Smith added.

Maintenance of Mainsail's exterior is part of the job for the homeowners association. Grounds, pools, tennis courts, outdoor cooking areas all fall under the association's jurisdiction.

"We have an engineering firm that inspects our property, inspects our roofs, inspects our siding, and lets us know what has to be done," Smith said, adding that the association board members "want this property to be the best that it could be."

Association fees vary depending upon the size of the unit, but range from $888 to $2,900 per quarter. Water and sewer is covered through the association fees as well as exterior insurance.
