Island Princess condo description
Island Princess is a very popular complex with good location, great beach frontage, spacious units that families love. This is perfect for three couples to share, as each bedroom has its own bath. It is also perfect for a large family as the Sofa in the Great Room also makes out into a queen-size bed. Both the Master with the king-size bed and the great room have floor to ceiling windows over looking the Gulf of Mexico. Most of our tenants walk in and say WOW as the views are great. Miles of undisturbed soft, stunningly white sand, with gentle dunes sea oats and the breathtaking colors of the water is your view from the nice size balcony and the full wall of mirrors in the great room, which bring the outside right into the unit.
The decor is light, bright Florida Colors. The kitchen is fully equipped with Corian Counter tops, White Cabinets full of dishes, Pans and small appliances to make your time there fun. The side by side refrigerator has an icemaker. The bedrooms are carpeted, but the rest of the Condo is all Ceramic Tile. There is a desk all set up to plug in your lap top w/DSL for keeping up, your e mail. (WiFi anywhere). There is Covered Parking so you do not have to go out and get into a hot car to go shopping or out for dinner. There are quite a few nice places to eat close by. Call me if you want some recommendations.
We provide Umbrella Service with two chairs. Saves you a place on the beach each day, plus less for you to carry down. 3/1 thru 10/31. I try to keep extra sand chairs in the unit for your use but they keep disappearing. I do not know if they get left on the beach or that the cleaning people remove them. If they are there take care of them and brush the sand off before bringing them into the unit. (Do not leave them outside the door as the grounds people pick them up as they are a trip hazard for people walking by.)
All the bedrooms all have flat screen TV and DVD players. The Great Room has a 46 inch flat screen and Blu Ray disk Player. Master has a 40 inch, 30 in 1 bedroom and 20 in the other. (bring a movie or 2 with with you) The Sony Music system has an I pod station. (There are some movies there but they seem to come & go. I bring more everytime I come)
We are close to the least used elevator and there are stairs right beside it, if you want the exercise.

On the fifth floor but very easy access to the Elevator, There are handi bars in the bath. Because of the hurricane proof doors you cannot roll right out on the Lani without help to get over the ledge, But you have a great view even inside the doors, if you cannot manage the threshold. The county provides a beach wheel chair. it just needs to be arranged with the umbrella service attendant...moreless

What a GREAT place to stay!!
What a GREAT place to stay!!
First of all, the view from the balcony is simply amazing. I loved starting the day by having breakfast and drinking coffee on the balcony. The floorplan is very open, so whether you’re cooking in the kitchen or watching TV in the living room, you have an ocean view. During the cooler parts of the day, it was nice to have the sliding doors open to feel the ocean breeze and hear the waves crashing. This made for a very relaxing and peaceful vacation. I’ve stayed at the beach plenty of times, but never “on the beach”-- It made all the difference in the world. The kitchen had every item that you could ever need while on vacation. The chair service was awesome. I’m use to lugging everything back and forth, so to simply just go down to the beach and plop down was a treat. The covered parking was a bonus. The owners were very easy to deal with and made this a great hassle-free vacation.

Wonderful get away :)
Wonderful get away :)
5 friends and I stayed here an had an absolute blast. They were very easy to rent from and get a hold of. They did everything and more that they said they would do. I spent at least an hour or two on the big balcony watching the sunset or wildlife in the ocean. It was awesome. The furniture was comfy and clean along with a nice fully equipped kitchen to fix dinner. The beds were soft and the rooms were festive The beach was beautiful and the beach chair service made it even more enjoyable. I already have recommended this condo to my family and friends, and would be lucky to be able to come back and stay here again. Thank you do much for helping to create an awesome get away vacation. :)

Owner response: See you next year. We think Okaloosa Island is a nice relaxing place on the beach close to everything, Most people just come to go to the beach. It makes us happy that our guests love the way we decorated and the amenities we provide.
Great Time with the Family

What a great place to stay. The condo was clean, had everything we needed and more. The view from the balcony was fantastic. The beach was perfect especially with the chairs and umbrella that are provided. It was a pleasure working with Dilla and Larry. Would recommend their condo to family and friends who want a great place to stay and a great beach expierence. Thanks for a great place to stay.

Owner response: We are glad your family enjoyed the condo. We are going down in2 weeks and as usual I can hardly wait. The condo is 10 yrs old now and we still never get to stay long enough. Be sure and come again.
I was there with two of my Grandchildren ages 14 & 9 and it was the most relaxing 6 days that I've enjoyed for a very long time. The private bathroom with each bedroom was a real plus. We really loved watching the Grand children play on the beach, while we adults relaxed on the shaded deck. We also enjoyed the fact that the water was so clear that we see the sea life in the water as well as the dolphines & pelicans feeding in the waves. Looking foreward to our next stay.

This is a unit for families. We have a large family ourselves and kept that in mind with the furniture and the kitchen equipment provided. Our Children's & Grandchildren's favorite vacation is at the Island Princess. We seldom leave except to buy groceries, but there are plenty of activities and eating establishments close by for your convenience. There are a least 5 in walking distance.

About the owner: I love to read & chat with all the people from all over the world that come to the Island Princess every year. You will also like the staff that keep the condo in good repair and the grounds men who keep the pool and landscaping very pretty. My husband loves to fish, wading out into the water. One day a neighbor caught a small shark just right for the bar ba que grill. This spring they were catching snapper.
Why the Owner Chose Island Princess:
We love the white sand beach, with the gentle incline to deeper water, the fishing and sea life that we see from our balcony. We plan to live in this unit when we retire. Okaloosa Island is away from the bustle of Destin but still close enough if we want to go there. And of course the sand is white & soft.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We are close to many golf courses. Boat rentals and deep sea fishing oportunities are close by. Mainly I love to walk in the surf in the morning and visit with all the fishermen trying their luck. Watching them bring a few in and continuing on down the beach. There are plenty of eating establishments to walk to. We have covered parking so if you do not want to drive you do not have to get into a hot car to go to lunch or dinner. The kitchen is fully equipped. I have little time for cooking at home because of work so I cook a lot here. We even have a coffee maker that has a hot water station if some of the family are tea drinkers and some want coffee. You will need to add and empty the water though it is not plumbed.
