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.

Nice spot!

  • 4 of 5

Although this property is not directly on the beach, it may as well have been. We had a view of the water from the balcony, and it was about a 3 minute walk to the chairs and umbrella that were waiting for us on the beach. This made it easy to pop back to the condo to get lunch or refill our drinks. Our kids had a great time at the community pool as well. Both Fort Walton and Destin are easy drives from this location, which allowed us to get out in the evenings to some great restaurants. Boshamps, McGuires and Burrito Del Sol are all worth checking out. The condo itself was clean and just enough space for our family of 4. The bathroom was a bit tight, but well stocked with towels. We appreciated having washer/dryer in the unit. Although the weather was rainy during our stay, there were plenty of movies available in the condo as well as a couple of games we used to pass the time. All in all, an affordable and pleasant stay!

Amazing condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. I've never seen a cleaner condo. Immaculate. The location can't be beat. We liked that it was in a quieter area. The beach was so pretty and you get two chairs and an umbrella daily to use which was great. The pool is lovely and clean with a shower to rinse off. Lisa was so nice and helpful from start to finish. We will definitely be returning. Thanks so much Lisa!!

Owner's Response: Dear Leigh, Thank you for your wonderful review. I strive to keep the Sea Shell a very clean, comfy, and relaxing, vacation home. Providing conveniences to you, my guests, for example the chairs and umbrella at the beach, is a benefit I love providing. It is such a freeing feeling to just bring a towel and suntan lotion and walk the two minutes to one of the prettiest beaches on the Gulf Coast!! I do love our pool, centered right in the middle of the complex, steps away from the condo. It was a real pleasure having you as a guest, please come stay with us again.

Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful! The condo was clean and bright and had everything you need! The beach was beautiful and it was so nice to have the chairs and umbrella already on the beach ready for your day to begin. Thank you Lisa for a easy process of renting. Everything was great!

Owner's Response: Dear Sheila, Thank you for choosing to be a guest at the Sea Shell. I am delighted I was able to make the process easy for you. Glad you enjoyed the beach service. Not having to lug beach chairs and an umbrella to the beach, is a service I provide to all my guests from March thru October. I also try to stock the kitchen with gadgets you require to cook any meal, should you choose to stay in for a night. I totally agree our beaches are the best and the reason we chose to create a vacation home on Okaloosa Island. Please come back and stay with us again. Sincerely, Lisa Clasen Owner of the Sea Shell
