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. Be one of the first to enjoy all new kitchen appliances, linens and bedspreads and huge Master walk-in shower! After a day on the non-crowded beach relax in a spacious living room with a large, flat screen TV, or take in some of the most spectacular sunsets you've ever seen. Awaken in the comfortable Master Suite then walk out on the balcony to sip coffee. Listen to the waves lapping the shore, scan for dolphins 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), 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 spanning from the Master Bedroom across to the Living Room, and watch incredibly beautiful sunsets as the sun submerges into the gulf, to be repeated each evening. In the meantime, plan 'what's for dinner.' This could be taking advantage of the grills provided, 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.

Plan your next day's activities such as a brisk walk down to the pier to watch fish being caught, or go the opposite direction to the non-developed area of the island. Feeling more energetic? Jog the trip, or use the jogging/bike 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. Close to the airport...miles from the crowd.

Why does the sand on our beach 'squeak' when you walk on it?

Each grain of sand on Florida's gulf beaches is quartz washed down from the Appalachian Mountains by the Apalachicola River, and in the process was ground to a feathersoft, blindingly white, quartz powder.

The unique sand on our many beaches is the whitest in the world. At the end of the last Ice Age, about 20,000 years ago, the world began warming, and the ice caps began melting, large volumes of water were carried to the Gulf of Mexico. As the sea level began to rise, these quartz sands eventually formed a new shoreline. It is this quartz, ground to perfect granular ovals, that makes the sand on Destin's beach "squeak" between your toes when you walk on it!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: We lived in Central Florida and vacationed on the Atlantic Coast until we ventured to the Gulf. The waters were so beautiful compared to the east coast. 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 waiting for elevators did not make for a relaxing vacation. When someone suggested Okaloosa Island, with a height restriction of 6 floors, we were intrigued. 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.
