Property description

Enjoy the soft, white, sugary sand of the Emerald Coast as it sqeaks between your toes. Nestled in a 6 story, immaculate building, this 3rd floor, 2 BR Gulf-front condo speaks relaxation. The unit was totally renovated in January so be one of the first to enjoy all new kitchen appliances, linens and bedspreads and huge Master walk-in shower! While you'll probably be on the non-crowded beach most the day, relax later with a large, flat screen TV, after watching some of the best sunsets you've ever seen. Awaken in the comfortable Master Suite with the sound of the gulf below you. Walk out on the balcony and sip coffee as you listen to the waves lapping the shore, and scan for dolphins jumping a few hundred yards out in the blue-green waters equally as beautiful as the Caribbean. Fix breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen with quartz countertops and all new appliances while those in the private guest room are still asleep. When everyone is up, plan your day on the pristine beaches, or around the pool (heated in the cool season) just below, or visit close-by Gulf-Arium or museums or shops. You might prefer a day of parasailing, deep sea fishing or boating in the gulf or sound. Maybe a golf outing on several of the nearby courses is what you had in mind.

Gather on the full length balcony that spans from the Master Bedroom across to the Living Room, and watch incredibly beautiful sunsets as the sun submerges into the gulf signaling the end of day, only to be repeated each evening. In the meantime, plan 'what's for dinner.' This could be taking advantage of the grills provided, or cooking in, or visiting the numerous waterfront and local restaurants on the island or in nearby Destin, about 5 miles to the east. The local, fresh-caught seafood is something you don't want to miss while you're here. Steamed shrimp, fresh grilled grouper, and many other delights.

As you lounge in the spacious Living Room after dinner, with adequate seating for the entire family and the big screen TV, plan your next day's activities such as a brisk walk down to the pier to watch fish being caught, or going the opposite direction to the non-developed area of the island. Feeling more energetic? Jog the trip, or use the jogging lane that runs the length of the island. Or, simply relax with a good book in beach lounges with umbrellas available for rent each day of the main seasons. Either way, the beach is just a few steps from the condo via the dune walk-over.

Without the congestion of many other beaches you've experienced, you'll find Okaloosa Island a nice, relaxing and refreshing change...just the vacation you needed and wanted. Close to the airport...miles from the crowd.

Year Purchased: 1999

About: We used to live in Central Florida and vacation on the Atlantic Coast until we ventured to the Gulf. The waters were so beautiful compared to the east coast. When we visited friends in nearby Destin, we just fell in love with the Emerald Coast and decided to purchase our vacation home. We love the relaxation of sitting by the pool or on the beach, or taking day trips to various nearby locations.

Why Summerlin:
After looking at highrise condos in Destin we decided that bumper to bumper traffic and crowded elevators did not make for a relaxing vacation. When someone suggested Okaloosa Island, which has a height restriction of 6 floors we were intrigued. We fell in love with it. Quiet, roomy, and lovely beaches without the congestion. There are great restaurants nearby (we have our favorites, of course!) and we're so close to Destin we can zip over there if we want to. Shopping for groceries is closeby and beach stores abound.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The sunsets on the island can be spectular particularly during the cooler seasons. We must have 300 pictures of sunsets, sure that each one was prettier than the last. Guests are always on the walkover with cameras in hand, just waiting that special moment when the sun dips into the Gulf. Additionally, the Gulf has such clear water and most the time it's not huge surf that knocks you over as you often find on the east coast. It's just so relaxing here.
