Island Echos condo description

Million dollar view from this 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath penthouse on the beach. May be the best view on Okaloosa Island -- see all the way to Navarre and past the Okaloosa Pier as far as the eye can see toward Destin, just six miles to the east.

This beautiful unit is on the perfect floor to watch the dolphins, seagulls and activity on the beach from the huge 32 foot balcony. Watch the boats on the Intercoastal Waterway and have a front row seat for holiday fireworks from front walkway.

Everything has been renovated and updated. Master suite is a dream ..... separate shower, whirlpool tub, vanity area, large walk-in closet, sliding glass door to balcony.

Kitchen is wonderful with a horseshoe shaped breakfast bar, separate lighted wet bar, ice maker, garbage disposal, fridge with water & ice through the double door, ceramic glass top stove, built-in microwave.

Master bedroom has king-sized bed, one guest room has private bath and a queen-sized bed, another guest room has 2 sets of bunk beds; one with full sized futon underneath. Extra sleeping with new raised queen sized Aero-bed. All with huge closets, television sets, DVD players. Washer and dryer and second refrigerator add to the convenient features.

Island Echos amenities include: seasonally heated Gulf front pool (usually January to mid-March), picnic and barbeque area, shuffleboard court, lighted tennis courts. Best amenity, of course, is the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico with wide, snow-white beach and clear, clean emerald-green water.

This is a wonderful condo, very spacious, with an awesome balcony overlooking the clear emerald-green waters and sugar-white sands of the spectacular Gulf of Mexico.

Island Echos is one of the favorite destinations for families visiting the Emerald Coast. It's a mid-rise with only seven stories. There are plenty of amenities on site, plus all the amenities of Fort Walton Beach and Destin just a few minutes away.

The Non-Smoking condo has recently been renovated and has new furnishings and new appliances. It's decorated in a very pleasing Florida style which is warm and inviting.

The master bedroom has a king bed, large TV, VCR and stereo. The second bedroom has a queen bed, TV & VCR. The third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds -- one with a full futon under, TV & VCR. All bedrooms have spacious bathrooms. In addition, there is a queen sized raised Aero bed for extra sleepers.

The balcony is a pure delight with plenty of lounge chairs and outdoor eating area. The views go on forever in both directions. Watch the dolphins frolic from the balcony.

                          Tropical paradise is closer than you think.....it's on Florida's Emerald Coast situated on the Gulf of Mexico. Florida's panhandle has for many years been awarded accolades from many tourist publications including Southern Living. Enjoy the softest, whitest sandy beaches, the clear emerald-green water with plenty of activities to interest vacationers. Within a day's drive from most Southeastern cities, the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area is a popular destination. You'll never be bored with the 28 top ranked golf courses, tennis facilities, fishing, watersports, hiking and biking trails, dolphin watching, nature preserves, historic forts, museums, water parks, incredible restaurants, boutique and bargain shopping. Or, just chill on the uncrowded beaches. It's a great place to vacation year-round -- even winter enjoys nearly 70 degrees of sunshine. The people here are friendly and are happy to extend their 'southern hospitality,' the pace relaxed; most guests are repeat visitors.

                          Other Activities: shopping, boating, miniature golf, racquet ball, shuffleboard, tennis, restaurants

                          About the owner: Hi, Y'all. My name is Angela Parkhurst and I'm fortunate to live in the very area where this condo is located. It's paradise on earth along this Emerald Coast. This makes it easy to manage my rental unit and be quick to resolve any issues (very few so far) that can arise. I am the proud mother of three boys --- Jason, age 32, a professional photographer who travels all over the world taking photos for such publications as Sports Illustrated and USA Today, Cameron (Jason's twin), who lives in Atlanta and works very successfully in the wonderful world of finance, and Clark, age 29, who lives in Hollywood, CA where he works in the movie industry....he was on the special effects team that produced Academy Award winning 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.' I also am the proud and doting Mom of a Schnoodle named Lulu. Please come visit us. You'll love the condo and the incomparable view of the Gulf of Mexico.

                          Why the Owner Chose Island Echos:
                          I actually bought the unit and lived in it for three years so it has a lot of upgrades that other units don't have. The Destin/Fort Walton Beach area is one of the most beautiful areas on this earth --- snow white sandy beaches, clear and clean emerald green waters. There's plenty to do with over a hundred golf courses within 50 miles, water parks, wonderful restaurants, snorkeling and scuba diving and fishing beyond compare.
