Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I have been coming to Florida's Emerald Coast since I was a child (40+ yrs) and I truly believe these are the most beautiful beaches in the USA!! The emerald clear water, sugar white sand, amazing attractions, and beach bathing make it the perfect vacation spot for my family and hopefully yours!!

Why the Owner Chose Sunset Cottages:
Since October 2004 I have owned a piece of this paradise, the Sea Shell. From the moment I bought the Sea Shell my goal was to make it the best vacation destination on Okaloosa Island. I constantly strive to provide outstanding guest service and the best vacation home. I want you to come back time and time again. Since October 2004 I have had the privilege of providing an outstanding vacation destination to hundreds of guests. Just read our outstanding reviews, they speak for themselves!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Great Location, Family Friendly, Beautiful Beaches!
