About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our second floor unit is beautifully decorated with a 'Beachy Motif.' It is continually updated with everything you may want. There are two flat screen TVs; both are equiped with a DVD player.

There is a newly remodeled & well equipped kitchen with everything we think you will need to make your stay like home. We even have a crock pot, so your dinner is ready when you return from the beach!

The dining room is open to the living room & separated from the kitchen by an open counter with bar stools.

There is a separate dressing area with a vanity and sink, which is very handy when everyone is getting ready at once. There are many wonderful restaurants nearby, and we always try a new one every time we are there.

This is our home away from home and we hope you share our feelings.

About Karen Murphy

We are a retired couple living in Southwest Ohio. We have 2 wonderful daughters and 6 grandchildren who all live nearby. We enjoy our times spent at the condo and have chosen to share it with guests when we are not using it.

Karen Murphy purchased this condo in 1994

Why Karen Murphy chose Fort Walton Beach

We vacationed here for a couple of years and fell in love with the area. We feel truely blessed to have purchased it. It was a 'fixer upper' when we bought it and we have enjoyed making it a home.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the beauty of the beach, watching the dolphins on their daily routes and we enjoy the wonderful friendships we have made.

condo in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condominium has everything you would need to enjoy a fabulous holiday. The furnishings are as described, very appropriate for a beach area. When you enter the condo, it has a very welcoming atmosphere,very clean, well equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need.The patio is great to eat your meals or sit and enjoy the evening and very private.The owner was more than helpful and always available. The condo itself is right on the beach and the swimming pool was clean and well maintained.I would recommend this property to anyone who wished to spend a holiday on the gulf coast.There is a local bus service that stops 1 minute from the property and takes you wherever you wish to go along the coast in Fort Walton Beach.The surrounding restaurants are great, with one exception, did not enjoy the meal at Fudpuckers, maybe it was an off night but not a good experience. All in all a great holiday ,in a great location. Thank you

Fantastic Father's day weekend

  • 5 of 5

The condo description and photos are spot on. They had all the kitchen basics to cook. The condo may not be beachfront, but we did not miss it since we are on the beach or pool that is walking distance and the Okaloosa prier every day. The owner was very responsive to my inquiries and easy to work with. It is a family condo and definately would recommand this place to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Pete & I used to enjoy walking to the pier a few years ago. We would walk down, have lunch at one of the beachfront restaurants & walk back.

Perfect condo for our mother/daughter get away

  • 4 of 5

His condo was a perfect fit for our get away. I liked so many things about this condo: it has reserved parking, beach service for 2, gated pool that is just steps away from the beach, it is well maintained (inside and outside--pool and beach were extremely clean), newly renovated kitchen, comfortable bed, covered deck, wi-Fi, and most of all the owners were very easy to contact and deal with. We will definitely be making a return trip.

Awesome stay in a great condo

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely wonderful stay at this condo in July 2013. The pictures were accurate as the condo is clean, kitchen is great and updated, and it's in very nice shape. There is a nice side view of the ocean from the patio and of course, the condo itself is right on the beach. Parking spot was perfect, and there was just a short walk from the unit down to the pool and through to the beach. Beach service was great as we just walked right down and grabbed a couple of chairs and an umbrella every morning. In my opinion, you really can't beat this condo for the location and price and what you get. Karen was awesome to deal with and she answered all my questions timely, and got us set up for a perfect stay. We had a great time at Fudpuckers, Crab trap, and trips just over the bridge to Destin a few times as well. Would absolutely stay here again!

Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The weather was great. It was a week trip for the girls. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. It is a older condo but it was well taken care of. Karen was great to work with. Hope we can come back soon and stay in it again. The pool is kind of small but we stayed on the beach most of the time. And the beach service was great. He had our chair set up every day when we got down there.

a wonderful combo for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two teenage daughters just returned from a one-week vacation in this unit. Everything was wonderful! We have stayed in Fort Walton Beach for past vacations, in other units and in other buildings. This is our new favorite, and we will definitely be back! The unit is just as described and pictured. It is very clean, the kitchen is nice, all of the furnishings are comfortable, and the bathroom spaces are large. The units comes with beach service, making your vacation a snap, and a couple of TVs and DVD players for the inevitable rainy day. The owners were very responsive to inquiries. And the price cannot be beat!
