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!

Owner's Response: Dear Vikki, So glad I was able to make your stay great and you appreciate what an amazing job my housekeeping staff does with the Sea Shell. I really try to make the Check Out process easy for you, so I am glad I succeeded. Those bunk beds are a lot of fun for the kids, especially with the private "train car like" sliding privacy curtain. Please do come back and stay with us again. Sincerely, Lisa Clasen Owner of the Sea Shell
