Sugar white beaches and emerald green water are within 100 yards (A quick, two minute stroll).

Once on the beach, take advantage of the free beach service(one umbrella with two lounge chairs), relax and take in the sun and the waves. This 1,056 sq ft condo is ONLY 2 MILES (a 5 minute drive) FROM THE EMERALD COAST CONFERENCE CENTER and just 6 miles from Destin.

"Beach Haven" is located on beautiful Okaloosa Island, which is a section of Santa Rosa Island located directly south of Ft Walton Beach (SEE THE MAP IN THE PHOTO SECTION). Okaloosa Island is a quiet, family-oriented, low density beach area. Pets are NOT allowed and No Smoking.

This third floor (and top floor) unit has two beautifully decorated levels. Escape upstairs to your private master bedroom with a king size bed and full bath with a balcony overlooking the pool.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Jim & Shirley Simpson. We are retired Air Force officers who moved to Florida in 1998. During her nursing career with the Air Force Shirley was stationed at Eglin Air Force Base and fell in love with the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area. Prior to moving to Florida we lived in Austin, Texas. We live full time on Okaloosa Island. In 2000 we purchased our vacation rental condo (which we have named "Beach Haven"). We live about 4 blocks from the condo and manage it ourselves. Our goal is to give our guests an enjoyable experience each and every time.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sunset Cottages:
                  We chose to buy both our retirement home and our vacation rental condo on Okaloosa Island for the same reasons. Okaloosa Island has the beautiful snow white sand beaches. Under the covenants no building can be more that 75 feet high - this restriction has resulted in much lower density. Also, the access road to the Island is a dead end road which means a lot less traffic. In addition, the beach is public and there are many public access points - including one next to our condo - to the beach. Bottom line: Beautiful, uncrowded beaches, low density and low traffic.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We provide a free beach service (March 1 thru Oct 31) which sets-up an umbrella with two lounge chairs every day for our guests. Also, we provide a WiFi hi-speed internet connection. We do not charge a cleaning fee. In addition we have a DVD collection of over 60 movie titles available for our guests. Also, we provide a good supply of paper products, soaps, detergents and plastic bags for the convenience of our guests. In addition we provide a good supply of beach toys (boogie boards, shovels, rakes, buckets, sand molds) for the children. Finally - but not least - we live 4 blocks from our condo and are immediately available for any needs they might have.
