Property description

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 queen-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 and a couple packets of coffee, to get you started on your vacation.

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.)

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


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the 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.

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
