The Palms condo description

We are so proud & grateful to report that 96% of our guests recommend our Unit 405 to others based on our most recent 55 reviews! We were more than 94+% booked from Spring Break through Labor Day for THIS year (2014) & for the last 3 years (2011 thru 2013)!

All Rates include FREE AMENITY PACKAGE: 2 beach chairs & umbrella set up on the beach for you every day, 1 free pass on 2-hr dolphin cruise (2 different cruises to choose from), 1 adult snorkeling pass, 18 holes golf + 1/2 cart at Shalimar Pointe, free high-speed WIRELESS internet, & free nightly movie rentals!

BOOK your family's 2014 Vacation Dates TODAY @ 2013 RATES & SAVE! You will enjoy our newly upgraded kitchen with GRANITE counters & breakfast bar, MARBLE backsplash, & high-end STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES - All NEW in Fall of 2013! In Spring 2014, we put in new carpet in both bedrooms, a new KING mattress in the master & & completed alot of additional work throughout to give UNIT 405 a 'facelift' & a fresh new look!

(We had planned to do this & more prior to Spring Break 2013, but we were 'victims of our own success' & were booked solid! Likewise, The Palms Condo Owners' Association also completed several extensive maintenance projects!)

Welcome! Are you dreaming of awakening to the sparkling blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the sugar-white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast, the sight of dolphins playing & the sounds of seagulls, and the refreshing feel of salt air on your face? STOP DREAMING & START PACKING!

DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH, Unit 405 at THE PALMS is a SPACIOUS (1200 sq ft) EAST END/CORNER unit. Our guests rave about our LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! They all appreciate & comment on our spectacular VIEWS, very large BALCONY, bright & sunny DECOR, & our frequently updated & comfortable BEACHY-STYLE furniture and furnishings. Our families also enjoy vacationing in THE PALMS because it's a smaller development (only 6 stories) that caters specifically to families such as YOURS! In on-line surveys, we consistently receive AT LEAST 4 out of 5 stars & very frequently receive a PERFECT SCORE OF 5 in all categories! Some guests prefer to email me instead so I've shared some of their comments (verbatim) in the Review section. Their emails are filled with wonderful compliments, family anecdotes, & even photos. Many guests thank me for providing such a warm & welcoming 'home away from home' for their family vacation! Isn't that the best recommendation you could possibly receive?

Actually, the VERY best RECOMMENDATIONS come from our previous guests who vote with their $$ by returning ONLY to OUR Unit (#405) whenever they vacation on the Emerald Coast! Some of our guests have been returning to our unit for more than 7 consecutive years - amazing! Many guests book their dates for the NEXT year before they leave for home! We say 'thank you' to our RETURN GUESTS BY GIVING THEM A 10% DISCOUNT ON RETURN STAYS OF 7 DAYS OR MORE!

If you recall only 1 detail after reading our description, REMEMBER this:

** Our EAST END Unit #405 has EXTRA BEACH Views with 3 BONUS windows. You've traveled many miles to be RIGHT ON THE BEACH & to LOOK AT THE BEACH when you aren't on it, right? So why would you book a condo with limited views? With those 3 extra windows, UNIT 405 boasts PANORAMIC views of the beach to the EAST & SOUTH & WEST --available from virtually every room!
As you look at the photos, do pay particular attention to the large, double windows in the dining area AND in the living area (see them behind the sofa?) There's even a window in the kitchen just above the kitchen sink!

** ONLY EAST END UNITS have an UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW of the beach to the EAST & to WEST so you can enjoy those truly spectacular SUNSETS from the balcony that so many guests rave about in their reviews! There's even a 'cut out' in the east end balcony side wall, removing any possible obstruction to your view. So you can see 'up' & 'down' the beach! (Unlike some other units/condo developments, we are NOT looking directly into another building.)

**OUR EAST END UNIT offers added PRIVACY in 2 important ways!
1. There's NO parade of people 24/7 constantly walking past your front door or past the KIDS' FRONT BEDROOM WINDOW on their way to the elevator! We all know how noisy & boisterous 'other people's children' can be while on vacation, especially during peak season!

2. OUR END UNIT #405 also provides the ADDED PRIVACY of a neighbor on just 1 side, not both. We are not sandwiched between 2 smaller interior units. (I really don't mean to be critical; but those long & narrow smaller windowless interior units do

**OUR END UNIT #405 has 200 EXTRA SQ FT! For the math challenged, that's equal
That extra elbow room gives you: a FULL SIZE kitchen with high-end stainless appliances (not 'motel-size'); a GRANITE breakfast bar with 3 barstools for 3; a real DINING ROOM TABLE seating 6, and a much LARGER LIVING AREA with both a full-size sofa & a loveseat, both of which are sleepers! The extra 200 sq ft also provides you with YOUR OWN SEPARATE LAUNDRY ROOM with stackable washer & dryer plus a larger foyer, so you are NOT walking DIRECTLY into the kitchen or living room! The spacious foyer gives you a handy spot to drop those beach bags & you can drop your beach towels in the nearby laundry room. You will love all of the extra elbow room! It does NOT look or feel like a cramped hotel room with limited views!

**EAST END UNIT's extra sq footage allows us to have BOTH a full-size bed & a twin bed in the 2nd bedroom. That offers you lots of flexibility in sleeping arrangements, allowing extended family members or friends to join you! We sleep 7 !

From the moment you feel those cool tiles in the foyer on your bare feet, you will experience the bright & breezy colors of the sun and the Gulf of Mexico: The walls are painted a sunny, welcoming yellow, and all the furnishings mimic the shades of blue and green found in the amazingly beautiful Gulf of Mexico waters just outside your door. NO cookie-cutter condo packages, NO 80's dark Tommy Bahama furnishings & scary monkeys, and NO owner hand-me-downs or garage sale cast offs! Each item, from the custom-framed art work down to the throw pillows, was carefully chosen to ensure our condo is WARM & WELCOMING as well as BRIGHT & CHEERFUL -- the impression is more like a BEACH COTTAGE than a condo! We are constantly updating & replacing both furniture & furnishings to be sure our unit always looks its best: clean, fresh & stylish but still comfortable & relaxing!

Despite its 'beach cottage feel,' Unit 405 has all the modern conveniences! In late 2013, not only did we totally updat
3 NEW HIGH DEF FLAT SCREEN TVs (42',32'& 22')& FREE Wi-Fi! So bring your laptop & IPads!

UNIT #405's bright & airy OPEN CONCEPT allows you to prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen using our fresh, local seafood for your friends & family while being a part of the action & still be mesmerized by those breathtaking views from 3 BONUS windows as well as from the sliding glass doors off the living area! Natural light streams into the dining area which comfortably seats 6 while 3 more use the barstools at the nearby breakfast bar - perfect! Or if you prefer, dine on the balcony! It's also furnished with a large round table, 4 chairs, and 4 comfy barstools with a bar-height table.

The spacious MASTER BEDROOM, which faces the Gulf of Mexico, is also newly decorated in shades of blue & green reminiscent of the Gulf waters. Our guests really love its VIEW & ACCESS to the 23 ft. balcony through sliding glass doors. You'll find the adjoining master bathroom with double sinks & tub/shower combo to be private and spacious!

BR #2 sleeps 3 (THREE) & has been cheerfully decorated in to remind you of our colorful sunsets: shades of blue, yellow, & reddish orange. It has 1 full-size bed & 1 twin, allowing flexible sleeping accommodations for every family. The 2ND BATH (SHOWER ONLY/NO TUB) adjoins the 2ND BR or can be reached from the living area - a very convenient arrangement!

There's plenty of comfy seating in the living area with both a sofa & loveseat. Two family members can sleep on the queen-size sofa sleeper and awaken to that breathtaking beach view! For those late sleepers, the fully-lined draperies block the early morning sun.

You will begin & end each day of your special vacation on the 23 ft balcony! Sit, relax & while away the hours amusing yourselves with our guests' favorite sports: DOLPHIN-WATCHING & People Watching!
WHY pay Destin's higher prices & fight their traffic every time you leave your condo when you can provide your family with the BEST BEACH VACATION EVER right here at UNIT 405 @ The Palms? WHY join thousands of people in a mammoth high-rise elsewhere? The Palms is only 6 stories & is tucked away on Nautilus Court, away from the hustle & bustle of Santa Rosa Boulevard, Okaloosa Island's main road, but still very close to restaurants, shopping, Okaloosa Island pier & so much family-friendly entertainment that you'll run out of time long before you run out of places to go!

With a SWIMMING POOL, FREE Wi-Fi, private DUNE/BEACH WALKOVER w/ outdoor shower, and a FREE AMENITIES PACKAGE which includes: 2 complimentary beach chairs & umbrella daily, DVDs daily, 2-hour DOLPHIN CRUISE, SNORKELING, 18 HOLES OF GOLF + 1/2 CART!

What more could you ask? A RESERVED, COVERED PARKING SPACE to protect your car from the Florida sun - UNIT 405 HAS ONE! Very few unit owners paid the

DON'T DISAPPOINT YOUR FAMILY BY BOOKING ANOTHER UNIT! A happy wife = happy life! Doesn't YOUR family deserve the BEST? The Palms #405 is the perfect place for YOU!

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About: Due to significant privacy concerns & very legitimate concerns about identity theft, esp. with advancements in high-tech facial recognition software, I have decided today to remove our photo & all of the personal information previously included in this section about my husband & I and about our family. No, I am not one of those crazy conspiracy theorists -- just a well-informed consumer of the internet & technology in general. For the same reasons, I do not use Facebook nor do I have a Facebook account. So, please, do not take it personally if I ignore your 'friend request.' How sad that I've felt it necessary to take these actions! Unfortunately, along with the many wonderful & truly beneficial effects of advances in technology that I use and enjoy every single day, there's also the downside: when it's used to commit fraud& take advantage of innocent people like ourselves. Please accept my apologies for withdrawing our photo & personal write-up, but I honestly believe it's the smart thing to do. I consider myself an optimist and definitely see the glass at least half-full & see the best in people, but I'm also a well-informed consumer who takes a practical approach to avoid becoming a victim when it becomes obvious to me that I would be foolish not to do so. To each his own~!

                      Why The Palms:
                      While we were falling in love with each other, we also fell in love with the sugar-white sand beaches & blue green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and the porpoises & pelicans who inhabit them! So where better to enjoy those elements than Okaloosa Island? It's a vacation paradise for families from throughout the US and world over. We were attracted to The Palms because of its location, location, location: directly on the beach! It's a small development, where the elevators are uncrowded, that is conveniently located on Okaloosa Island, just a 10-15 minute drive from Destin. We insisted on an EAST end unit & purchased #405 because you have spectacular views from 3 additional windows, unobstructed views of the sunset from the balcony, the added privacy that comes from having a neighbor on one side only, and additional square footage equivalent to another 10' x 20' room. We were sold by the breathtaking views of the beach from both the living room & master bedroom and the balcony that runs the full width of the condo! We have our own reserved covered parking space, just a few steps from the swimming pool and the elevator. With 2 large bedrooms and 2 baths, it's the perfect spot for families to vacation & make those special memories! Based upon the lovely reviews and our many return guests who would stay nowhere else, we must have chosen pretty well! Our unit is a sunny vibrant yellow -- a color that epitomizes fun & optimism and which quickly banishes stress, worry & negative thoughts! But it's that first glimpse of the snow-white sand & the blue-green waters, where the summer sun creates sparkles as dazzling as diamonds, that magically calls your name, quiets your soul, & completely draws you in. Bingo! You are hopelessly in LOVE! It's a love that lasts for decades, where each much-anticipated visit calls to mind those standout memories of your previous one or perhaps of your very first one -- like recapturing your childhood or that of your now-grown children

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Through the years, we've owned various condos, townhouses, and vacationhomes in Ft. Walton Beach and in Destin, but we've always LOVED Okaloosa Island because it attracts wonderful families on vacation. We're so fond of our UNIT 405 at THE PALMS because of those awesome views of the beach! And you could literally toss a stone (or a seashell!) from our balcony to the beach & Gulf of Mexico. Owning a unit on the 4th floor is wonderful, but owning an end unit on the EAST end is perfection!! We love beginning the day with coffee on the balcony, whiling away the day dolphin watching & people watching on the beach, and ending the day back on the balcony with a glass of wine! There's no more relaxing place to be, and there's no place on this earth that we'd rather be when we're not working than right here!People ask us often where we go on vacation, and our answer is always the same: right here! You can travel the world over, and never see more beautiful beaches. Even the beaches in Bermuda that we've visited cannot compare.
