"Great stay in a 1 bedroom condo at the Emerald Towers West. Unit is on a nice floor with direct ocean front views. We were a family of 5 - 2 adults, 3 young kids. Large bedroom for adults, nice set of bunk beds for two of the kids and pull out sofa for the third child worked out very well. Condo is roomy, has a washer and dryer, vanity/sinks separate from the tub/shower which is helpful. Ample seating, TV/DVD, open layout. This is a different from the standardized timeshare condos where you have bare essentials, Pam's condo had useful items that you need in the kitchen, living and for the beach! We were happily surprised to find beach items for use! In the kitchen - useful utensils, thoughtful plastics (you're at the beach after all) and lots of little extras that are more like home than hotel!
Owner easy to do business with!
Location - Okaloosa Island is just outside of Fort Walton Beach. Nice and Quiet - mostly condos
Beach -uncrowded, easy access from the condo - down the elevator, walk to the side of building & up the stairs. There is a shower at the stairs so you can rinse off before entering
Condo Layout - bunk beds are not full size in height so we felt safe with our 4 & 6 year old sleeping on either bunk.
Washer/Dryer - for all the sandy clothes. Ample linens -towels and bedding
Beach amenities in unit (boogie board, floats, chairs -such a nice touch!)
Good sized kitchen - full size appliances and practical items you need for your stay
Nice Balcony & Direct Beach view
Open Layout & Clean
Groceries - Publix a few miles away
Breakables/Knickknacks. This is not a really con, but we had to move some with the little ones so we didn't break!
Condo is a little dated (flooring, some furnishings/appliances) but this would not deter us from staying again
Pool - It's on the back side of the condos (parking lot), would be awesome if it were beach facing. Nothing owners can control but worth noting in the over all experience.
Perhaps more rugs in hallway for wet feet/slipping on the tile and extra hooks to hang up wet clothes"

"This was our first time in the Ft. Walton area and our first time with a Bayview vs. Oveanview. The condo changed our prospective a on a what a Beach Vacation. We LOVED this condo and the peacefulness of overlooking the Bay! The condo was clean and very roomy. The pictures DO NOT do this condo justice...it is a must see. We saw a dolphin and fish from our balcony during our stay.
The condo is a short drive into Destin and Harborwalk area. The owners are easy to work with and very responsive. We have flagged this condo as one of our favorites and plan to visit it again!"
