Had a wonderful trip to this great place. Beaches are second to none and great place to experience the gulf coast with very good access to any adventure you want to get into . The Clasen's made the entire process very easy and are great to deal with . Thank you for a great trip and I hope to do it all over again soon.

The best of accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Okaloosa Island for the last 10 years and this by far has been our favorite place to stay. I can't say enough about Lisa. She was always very prompt in getting back with us and stayed in touch with us as Hurricane Nate was on the horizon. The condo is warm and inviting and top notch as far as being neat, clean and tidy! We felt right at home. The balcony was perfect to have our morning coffee. We would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to in the future. Thanks Lisa for your hospitality!

Relaxing. Elegant. Beautiful. Spotless.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much! There was a 1 minute walk to the beach and the locals are so kind. The Emerald Coast water was gorgeous. We were able to sit at our umbrella chairs (free and accommodating) and see many of dolphins in the morning from the beach without even taking a cruise! We have found our home away from home vacation haven! Thank you so much for opening your home to us.
