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!

Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time staying at the Sea Shell.

The condo is well kept with partial ocean views and has easy access to the beach.

We stayed during the off season, so the weather was too cool for swimming and shorts, but there was still plenty to do to keep us entertained!

Thanks Lisa

Great location and value!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful anniversary/family getaway. February may be our new favorite time to visit! We've stayed at Sunset Cottages several times and this unit worked great for us. Everything was nice and clean, beds are comfortable. Loved our view. Lisa was easy to work with and kept in contact to take care of our needs. Got deposit back quickly! We love this condo for the location at the end of the beach, the quiet small complex, the reasonable price and the nice view without being right on the beach. Walk to beach is easy and no problem. It appears a new condo is being built next door. Hopefully that doesn't block the great view!

Quick 4 day trip

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay!

1) Well appointed, clean and easy access plus the upfront information provided by Lisa made arrival and departure problem free.

2) I am not much of an "eat out" type of person. Kitchen and the utensils supplied were more than adequate for the enjoyable meals I prepared during my stay.

3) I would pursue another stay in the future if the condo is available during my infrequent travels to the Fort Walton / Pensacola area.

I always try to provide as much information to my guests to make the entire rental process as easy as possible from Booking, to Check In, to Check Out.

Comfort and Style

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Shell is one of the most accommodating places we have ever stayed in. Clean, comfortable, & a homely feeling while being away! A short walk to the beach and close to everything! Destin or Pensacola! Cannot wait to return. Thank you Lisa for communicating with me throughout. Until next time.....

Owner's Response: Dear Anna, So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Sea Shell, we would love to have you stay with us again. I strive to provide guests a clean, comfortable stay and I am glad I was able to provide that to you. The short (a minute or two) walk to the beach makes it even more enjoyable. Plus we are so close to Destin and Pensacola, if you want to visit a bigger city. Can't wait to book another stay at the Sea Shell for you. Until then.. :) Lisa Clasen Owner of the Sea Shell

Very comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. From this unit you have a good view of the beach. Even though you are not right on the beach you might as well be. Easy access to beach. The path from here to beach is easy, concrete and about 1 minute to sand. Convenient parking and lots of good restaurants near by. You can't tell from the pictures but the bathroom has access from the hall and the bedroom so if the kids are sleeping in the bunks you can still get to bathroom without disturbing them.

Owner's Response: Dear Leah, Glad you enjoyed your stay at the Sea Shell. I do love it is so close to the beach, may not be gulf front, but can't beat a minutes walk to the beach, plus no roads to cross. Being a small complex with our parking lots so close to the unit makes for easy loading and unloading too. No long walk to drag your stuff back and forth to the condo. Also, the bathroom having access from the hallway and bedroom is a great feature, plus a little more privacy when sleeping in the bedroom. Okaloosa Island does have some great restaurants, and a great fishing pier. Please come back and stay with us again. Sincerely, Lisa Clasen Owner of the Sea Shell
