The Okaloosa Island fishing pier is only a mile walk down the beach, and can be seen this building. The fishing boats leave Destin every morning and return home with huge catches that continue to make it 'the luckiest fishing village in the world.' The Gulf of Mexico offers fine bottom fishing, trolling and sport fishing, and many commercial boats operate year round with experienced captains. Charters are available for full and half day trips, as well as, extended trips. Everything from amberjack, grouper, snapper, king mackerel, cobia and bluefish to magnificent blue and white marlin and sailfish may be caught by the skilled fisherman.

All may be done in the Fort Walton Beach area. Excellent freshwater fishing and canoeing are also available in North County on many scenic lakes.

The location of this apartment is great. Too bad that it has probably not been updated for decades. Even a deep cleaning would not help this place; it is just old.
It needs new furniture, new appliances (a washer and dryer would be a fabulous addition), new pots and pans, more silverware and a vacuum cleaner because the hand-held little vacuum that is there will not pick up even a dead fly. The TV did not work the first two days we were there (kept dropping the signal and froze the picture) and dropped out intermittently the rest of the time; it was annoying because we really wanted to watch some of the winter Olympics. The price was high enough for us to expect a nice place, which this was not.
We're sorry you did not like the décor. Each unit owner gets to decorate their unit based on their desires. The unit was totally painted, refurnished and redecorated in 2010. New decor and dinette set were added in 2016. A new living room chair was added in 2017. A new couch was delivered in March 2018. The hand held vacuum was just a convenience, as the unit has all tile floors and we leave a broom and dust pan for our guests as well. It was deep cleaned 6 months prior to this stay, and bad silverware, pots n pans were replaced. It is continuously maintained in order to host as many guests as it does each year.
The HOA does not allow washer/dryers inside the units, but there are three laundry rooms in this building for guest convenience. The HOA provides the TV service, and there was a lightning strike on the transmitter tower during or just prior to this guest's stay, which took the cable company a couple weeks to get everything running back to normal again. There was nothing we could do about that. The price this guest paid of under $98/night for a 2BR/2BA unit directly on the ocean, with spectacular views is extremely reasonable, and well under the market rate in the area. If this unit had granite and marble, the rate would be triple. We believe that our clean and comfortable home, with modest features, but that sleeps 8 with spectacular views and just a few feet to the beach, at half the price of the fancier places is well worth the price paid, and better suited to most families' vacation desires.
