Nautilus condo description

The Nautilus is perfectly situated on Okaloosa island with long stretches of beach - walk, sun bathe, build sand castles, swim in the ocean, or hunt for shells.

This unit is is situated so that the master bedroom has two sets of full length sliding glass doors which allow magnificent views of both the gulf front and the inland water way. Lay in bed and watch the sun rise on the white beaches and emerald water, or the moonlight sparkle on the ocean. At the same time you can watch the boats in the inlet.

There is a long balcony that wraps around the master bedroom and continues past the living room, providing a 180 degree view.

Popular split bedroom floorplan with a large guest bedroom allows for privacy.

Unit is newly decorated to include new sofa and chair, new washer/dryer combo, new vertical blinds and artwork.

There is a large well-equipped kitchen with a wrap around counter and wet bar.

This is a low-density building that is architecturally unique and exceptionally well-maintained.

              So much to see and do- Hundreds of restaurants, great shopping in malls or single stores, boating, scenic drives, Gulf Breeze zoo, parks, golf courses, and wildlife preserves. Of course - Beach, beach, beach!

              Goods and services very close - quick shop across the parking lot, bars and restaurants down the road, convention center nearby, movies and shopping within 10 miles in both directions.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: My husband and I are retired, but very active. We love to travel, but when home, my husband volunteers at our local 'Meals on Wheels', Jefferson Barracks VA hospital, and for BJC Hospice. I manage the condo and do consulting and some pro bono work on claims appeals for veterans. I also do photo restoration and paint. I entered the Beaux Arts show in Ft Walton Beach for the first time last year and one of my paintings was sold!

              Why the Owner Chose Nautilus:
              We really like the Nautilus because of its unique architecture and its relatively small size. Parking and traffic are never a problem here and the location is so convenient.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We love the Ft. Walton Beach-Destin area because there is so much to see and do here. The moment my son and I walked in to this unit and saw the view from the wraparound balcony in the master bedroom, we were hooked.
