Emerald Towers West condo description

2br/2bath Gulf front, ground floor condo with a view. Private balcony opens to master br and living room, wifi, private laundry, flat screen tv, seasonally heated pool, tile and vinyl throughout. We challenge you to find any condo closer to the beach than this!!!

This unique southeast corner unit, two bedroom condo is about 6 feet above the sand, and about 20 feet from it. The living room has two walls of windows, and from the balcony one can see miles up the beach in either direction! You can even see, smell and hear the surf while lying in your king size master bed! Due to the unique design of this building which places you well above the sand for a great view of the beach, your front door remains at parking level, so you won't have to climb any stairs or wait on any elevators.

This unit also comes with high speed internet, free beach service, an inside washer/dryer, a bbq area and a heated pool. It is directly on the sugar white beach of Okaloosa Island, which is between Fort Walton Beach and Destin.

              Location

              Located between the sleepy town of Ft. Walton Beach, and the buzzing tourist destination of Destin, we feel this is the best vacation destination for the family, golfer, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa. Because these buildings have fewer units than most other beaches and plenty of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say that these are the most beautiful beaches that they have ever seen. Television, surveys and magazines rate the Emerald Coast among the top ten in the world for its beautifully colored waters and sand as white as snow. You can relax on your private balcony, and watch the dolphins jumping less than 100 yards away! This unit is currently priced below similar units in this building, so book soon, before we raise prices.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About: My husband and I live in Austin, Texas, with our two daughters. We vacationed on Okaloosa Island a few years ago and just fell in love with the area and wanted to make a small piece of this beautiful beach area our own. We have not seen any other beaches as gorgeous as this. The beauty of the Gulf takes your breath away. It is the perfect place for some R&R.

              Why Emerald Towers West:
              We selected this particular vacation home because of its size, location, and accessibility. It is a small to medium size building so the beach is never crowded. There is plenty of space to spread out. It is located right on the gulf and you never feel overcrowded. The building is set up high, so even though we have all the convenience and accessibility of being on the first floor, we have a tremendous, breathtaking view. We have a physically disabled daughter and the accessibility of this vacation home makes it easy to use with her. The beach crossover is located adjacent to us, making beach access very convenient and only a very short walk.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Great view from a ground floor vacation home because the building is set up high. Convenient, easy access to the beach, very close to the beach walkover. Convenient, right-at-your-door parking. Good location for those that cannot walk a long distance to the beach or the vacation home. Right on the Gulf! If you got any closer, you would be in the water! Total view sunrise-to-sunset from the wrap around balcony, living room and master bedroom.
