About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located in the popular Island Princess Condo. great beach frontage, spacious units that families love. This is perfect for three couples to share, as each bedroom has its own bath. It is also perfect for a large family as the Sofa in the Great Room also makes out into a double-size bed. Both the Master with the king-size bed and the great room have floor to ceiling windows over looking the Gulf of Mexico. Most of our tenants walk in and say WOW as the views are great. Miles of undisturbed soft, stunningly white sand, with gentle dunes sea oats and the breathtaking colors of the water is your view from the nice size balcony and the full wall of mirrors in the great room, which bring the outside right into the unit.

The decor is light, bright Florida Colors. The kitchen is fully equipped with Corian Counter tops ,Newer upscale Appliances, Cabinets full of dishes, Pans and small appliances to make your time there fun. The side by side refrigerator has filtered water and an ice maker. We provide dishwasher detergent, coffee filters. full size Washer & Dryer.

Our price includes Umbrella Service with two chairs. Saves you a place on the beach each day, plus less for you to carry down. 3/1 thru 10/31. I try to keep extra sand chairs in the unit for your use but they keep disappearing. I do not know if they get left on the beach.. If they are there take care of them and brush the sand off before bringing them into the unit. (Do not leave them outside the door as the grounds people pick them up as they are a trip hazard for people walking by.)

All the bedrooms all have flat screen TV. The Great Room has a 46 inch flat screen and Blu Ray disk Player. We have HD TV provided in all the rooms.

About Dilla Goedert, Owner

I love to read & chat with all the people from all over the world that come to the Island Princess every year. You will also like the staff that keep the condo in good repair and the grounds men who keep the pool and landscaping very pretty. My husband loves to fish, wading out into the water. One day a neighbor caught a small shark just right for the bar ba que grill. This spring they were catching snapper.

Dilla Goedert, Owner purchased this condo in 2001

Why Dilla Goedert, Owner chose Florida Main North West

We love the white sand beach, with the gentle incline to deeper water, the fishing and sea life that we see from our balcony. We plan to live in this unit when we retire. Okaloosa Island is away from the bustle of Destin but still close enough if we want to go there. And of course the sand is white & soft.

What makes this condo unique

We are close to many golf courses. Boat rentals and deep sea fishing oportunities are close by.

Mainly I love to walk in the surf in the morning and visit with all the fishermen trying their luck. Watching them bring a few in and continuing on down the beach. There are plenty of eating establishments to walk to. We have covered parking so if you do not want to drive you do not have to get into a hot car to go to lunch or dinner. The kitchen is fully equipped. I have little time for cooking at home because of work so I cook a lot here. We even have a coffee maker that has a hot water station if some of the family are tea drinkers and some want coffee. You will need to add and empty the water though it is not plumbed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So happy you could come to enjoy our second home. Hope you are doing ok back in the cold Winter and will come again. I wish we could get away from it too also here is a lot warmer than your home area

Excellent property accommodations, and the view in this picture is spot on.....real life is better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three (my husband, daughter, and myself) stayed at this property for Spring Break. The accommodations are excellent and comfortable. The weather, no one has control of, was off for the week of Spring Break (except for Friday, the day before we left). However, I did feel like I was at home away from home. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The view from the living room, and on the patio deck, is priceless. We were unable to utilize the umbrellas and chairs that were set-up daily (and wow what an accommodation). Although, we did go for a couple of three to four mile walks down the beach searching for shells and landed at the pier. The pier is a great place to see what the locals are catching close to the shore, to check out some of the local birds, and look for sea turtles. There are plenty of food places nearby, and grocery stores to buy items to prepare in the nicely equipped kitchen.

I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Thank you for allowing us to experience your place!

Fantastic Get-Away Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

When the owner advertised it as having a fully-stocked kitchen, she was not overselling it. It was what we needed and more! The two large pizza pans came in handy for the Papa Murphy pizzas we ordered and then cooked in the condo. There was even a bag clip for a bag of chips that didn't get eaten in one sitting.

The beach toys provided were wonderful for my brother's young family who came for a brief visit while we were there. His two little ones and our 16-year-old had a fantastic time on the beach with them, and the adults got to relax in the beach chairs. The washer and dryer came in handy, too.

With three bedrooms and bathrooms, both our children had their own. Since we all share one bathroom in our home, having three was amazing! I loved the master bedroom suite. The recliner there was so comfortable.

The living room was just beautiful, warm and inviting. Tastefully and enjoyably decorated with room for entertaining and not feeling like we were tripping over each other.

And I know the owner has no control over the weather, but it was awesome our entire stay. Walking the sparse beach, and listening to the waves roll in in the evening were just what our weary bodies needed, and this accomodation was such a blessing to us. Thank you for the opportunity to stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our condo. It is our second home so in keeping it comfortable for us. We always hope the guests will enjoy our life style. We enjoy light and bright colors at the beach, appliances that are working quietly in the back ground and comfortable beds and furniture.

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
Car: necessary

Most days we see dolphins from the balcony. We have seen manta rays along the beach and a lot of jumping fish some mornings.

There are eating establishments within walking distance down the beach or by sidewalk along Santa Rosa Blvd. Call me if you want to go someplace for a special night out and I will make a recommendation
