About the property

Award winning beach front Nautilus building, huge balcony 2BR/2BA HEATED POOL

NAUTILUS #2408. 2BR/2BA Gulf facing, private balcony spans the master BR* and LR, WiFi, private laundry, seasonally heated pool, tile throughout.

This lovely two bedroom condo was totally remodeled in 2011, with new cabinets, granite counters, and tile floors. Both master suites have private bathroom entrances. It has WiFi, is a side unit which faces the beach at a 45 degree angle, and is located on Okaloosa Island, which is between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It is the best vacation destination for the family, golfer, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa. Because this building has a mere 68 units, and plenty of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say that these are the most beautiful beaches that they have ever seen. Television, surveys and magazines rate the Emerald Coast among the top ten in the world for its beautifully colored waters and sand as white as snow. The Nautilus boasts a solar-heated pool, and beautiful architecture, and was the “Beautification Award” winning beach front property in 2006. You can relax with your morning coffee or a romantic dinner on your large private balcony adjoining the master bedroom and living room, and watch the dolphins jumping only a few hundred feet away! You have great views of the gulf from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom as well. It doesn’t get much more inspirational and romantic than watching the sun come up over the ocean through a wall of windows, while still snuggled in your king size bed. This unit also has WiFi internet, cable TV, and it’s own washer and dryer for your convenience. (Note: The bar sink and under counter ice maker have been disconnected.)

*Though the entire balcony is usable, the only access to the balcony will be the living room door, until door replacement by the HOA (at an undetermined date).

Bedding: Master-King/Spare-2 Queens/Living room-Queen pullout

This lovely condo with free internet, directly on the beach, are located on Okaloosa Island, which is between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It is the best vacation destination for the family, golfer, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa. Because our units are in smaller buildings, and have plenty of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say these are the most beautiful beaches they have ever seen. Television, surveys and magazines rate the Emerald Coast among the top ten beaches in the world for its beautifully colored waters and sand as white as snow.

.

In our 'just remodeled' featured unit, you can relax on your balcony, and watch the dolphins jumping less that 100 yards away, or choose one of our other units. All units face the beach! Need more... Ask us about our others. For more pictures and information, please see our web page.

Gulf front WATER RESORT, with balcony, guest room, WiFi. YOU HAVE FOUND THE BEST BUILDING ON THE BEACH! Watch the kids playing on the beach from your unit, and the beach sunset at the same time! This is a rare property with this much beach per unit due to the small building and large beach front.

This unit is so close to the ocean, that you can hear, feel, and smell the sea breeze while falling asleep with the windows open. It has a fully equipped kitchen, and courtesy beach chairs and umbrella provided in the unit to make your stay more comfortable. Beach service is also available.

.

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.

Other types of fishing available are surf fishing, fishing from bridges and piers, casting swirling nets for mullet or going after blue crab with traps or nets. 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 power-shoppers in the family will not be disappointed by this area's vast selection of malls and shopping areas. Take a day away from the sun and sand to experience a different breed of paradise amongst the trendy boutiques, factory outlets, specialty stores, and more.

.

Whether you're looking for thrifty buys or pricey elegance, Florida can accommodate! The nation's largest designer outlet mall is only thirty minutes away in Sandestin. Spend some time perusing the unique, open air town center Destin Commons, stroll over to Santa Rosa Mall, 'The Emerald Coast's newly designed mall has all the current fashion looks in many dazzling stores.

The Santa Rosa Mall offers over 100 specialty stores, a food court, two relaxing restaurants, a 10 screen movie theatre, and a specially designed carousel or head out to Uptown Station for a fun outdoor shopping experience where they have something for everyone in 45 nationally and locally recognized shops!

Needs updating...but overall nice condo.

  • 4 of 5

Family vacation for a week, we loved the beach and town... The condo itself was very nice,but does need updating... Rooms were very spacious. The sliding glass doors were not locking so we had to continually place block of wood to keep child from walking out the door onto balcony.Not safe. There needed to have instructions for the first bathroom shower, it was a pull down lever and not a pull up for shower itself...If you needed a maintenance man to come and see anything you had to pay for it. We had chair break on my 70 yr old grandmother, and another one was broken and nobody told us before we got there.

Not really a good experience

  • 1 of 5

Beach is gorgeous, as always, but no beach chair service included. Pool is good. Pictures are misleading; I have no doubt this picture was taken from the balcony, but it is the work of a good photographer-the boardwalk pictured doesn’t belong to this Condo; there is a parking lot and a privacy fence separating it....the gulf is to the right, this is a side unit. That was disappointing upon arrival, but mostly because we were expecting to be on the beach with a boardwalk right outside. The condo is nicely decorated; however, many items are in need of repair or replacement. There was not a pan in usable condition. We had to buy one ourselves at the store to cook a meal. 1 of 4 chairs broken leg, microwave door handle broken,master bedroom TV is 10”inch old box TV; the list is long. But I think the worst part is the property manager, and his lack of concern. He operates from another state (which I wouldn’t normally think this to be a problem, but it obviously is since it seemed he had no idea of condo quality and condition). We contacted him with concerns trying to give him the opportunity to make it right, and we received a delayed response via email, (not a phone call as my husband requested) and answers from go next door to Tom Thumb and buy ice, the maid was the best and he barely gets complaints, he would see if he could get someone to drop off a pan tomorrow, etc...just, very apathetic. Anyway, this is the 7th time to that area (prior times we stayed in Destin); we will not be staying here again and will go direct with condos in the future. Hope this helps someone out there!

Owner's Response: Though we regret that these folks had complaints about the unit, we feel we did what we could to provide a clean, safe, comfortable unit as advertised for their stay. There are three pictures on this ad showing the view of the beach from the unit. They were taken with my phone and all show the beach at an angle. It is a beautiful view, even if it is at an angle to the shoreline. Our beach access is conveniently located next to our pool. The public beach access next to our building is a benefit in that no large building is next door to block our views. We had no prior complaints on the frying pans before this stay, and took new ones to the unit as soon as we could after receiving the complaint. The unit does not have an ice maker, and we do not advertise one, so when the guest wanted one we suggested using the ice trays in the freezer or buying bagged ice next door, as we were unable to install an ice maker for them. We make repairs after the summer to minor damage that occurs during the busy summer months.

Very nice unit and building-Okaloosa Island is beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Nautilus 2408 was very spacious and clean. The kitchen was very nice. Kitchen was set up with plenty of bakeware and other necessary items. The view from the balcony was lovely. The access to the beach was nice. Having bathroom access on the beach level was also helpful. A convenience store is next door and other stores are close by. We would certainly rent this unit again if we return to the area.

The unit is truly very nice. I have a few suggestions that would make the unit more enjoyable for travelers. Televisions are small and outdated, newer larger units would be nice. Master bathroom is dark in the shower area; a lighted vent fan would make a huge difference when showering. An ice maker would also be helpful.

Owner's Response: We're very happy you enjoyed your stay. We are not allowed to put a light over the shower, but I think the black shower curtain may be blocking too much light, so I may switch it out after the summer, and see if that helps. Please ask about our returning guest discount next trip.
