About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our condo is OPEN, AIRY and BRIGHT !!!!!Fabulous views of the powder white sand and crystal clear blue and green water of the Gulf of Mexico even while sitting at your kitchen table. Don't be disappointed with a condo not offering a direct view. SUMMER PLACE #501 OFFERS GORGEOUS, MASSIVE VIEWS OF THE GULF!!

We love our vacation resort offering the best of both worlds - Fort Walton and Destin- voted #1 Beaches in America. On-site management and keys on site make check in so convenient. Fort Walton is a quintessential southern beach town with laid back charm and family friendly attractions.

Summer Place is minutes from Destin offering plenty of stimulation including terrific shopping at the largest outlet center and one of the top 10 golf towns in America. SummerPlace #501 is a PERFECT END UNIT WITH EXTRA WINDOWS(avoid the closed in feeling of the interior units) in a mid rise complex for those that want to get away from the congestion of large complexes, yet it is within walking distance on the beach to activities and excitement. THERE ARE PLENTY OF REPEAT CUSTOMERS THAT WOULD NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE!

Summer Place #501 is a PLATINUM RATED property on the 5th floor offering one of the largest balconies on the island. Enjoy the 9 foot ceilings throughout and all tile floors (no grubby wet carpet after a day at the beach or pool) There are TWO POOLS (one heated),a huge deck area with plenty of lounge chairs, a HOT TUB and PRIVATE FITNESS CENTER facing the Gulf.

UPSCALE FURNISHINGS, LIGHTING AND LINENS in our condominium make the stay even more pleasurable. Purchased 6/11 Restoration Hardware Queen Sleeper. Brand New quality mattresses and comforters. Kitchen IS COMPLETELY STOCKED and offers beautiful granite counters and large breakfast bar and new stainless appliances. WE PROVIDE DAILY BEACH SERVICE INCLUDING 2 BEACH CHAIRS AND AN UMBRELLA for each day of your stay with us (in season) !

The new EMERALD COAST CONFERENCE CENTER is only a stroll away. Summer Place is also close to Eglin Air Force Base.

About Barry

We have 5 children that love Summer Place! It is harder for us to leave every time we visit. We are Realtors in Mandeville, Louisiana.

Barry purchased this condo in 2007

Why Barry chose Florida Main North West

We have being going to Florida pan handle for years. We wanted to purchase in an area with lots of character and charm. We did not want massive high rise buildings and Fort Walton has an ordinance restricting buildings higher than 6 floors. There is no congestion on streets, pools and beaches. You can walk to many attractions and restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

We love our end unit which offers a much larger balcony. The end unit is quieter since you will not have anyone on one side of you. The end unit also offers more windows and light if you keep the blinds open. The condo is beautifully maintained and nicely decorated. All the mattresses are top of the line.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have a condo that has been in my family for years near SandDestin. I will never go anywhere other than Fort Walton Beach Okaloosa Island for now on. It is a hidden paradise! The beaches are much nicer and larger. I love the unit we stayed in at SummerPlace #501. It was my second time staying in #501. The corner unit was great with the huge balcony. I loved the upscale decorating in the condo. It is a perfect location to walk to the Boardwalk with lots of beach excitement and come back to the condo that was laid back. Perfect Mix! You do not need a car..everything is within walking distance. I am planning MY NEXT TRIP ALREADY!

We had an awesome week of family fun. This condo has so much room and only steps from the beach. The 2 pools and large deck area allowed for a vacant seat at all times. I highly recommend this unit!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place for a family vacation. Photos reflect very accurate images of rental.

Property clean and well maintained.

Owner was always helpful via phone conversations and e-mail, always offering timely response to questions.

Unit was ready upon our arrival. The heated pool and hot tub was a hit as the weather

turned a cool that week. We would recommend Summer Place family and friends.

We enjoyed great sea food within walking and short driving distance, the beach was perfect.

Great fall getaway

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very nice, just as the pictures show. The balcony is very large and nice but it does have a somewhat limited view as it is set back and on the end. Close to Waterscape condo. That's the only reason for not giving an excellent rating.

Summer Place was the best place we have stayed

  • 5 of 5

We loved our condo! We had a family of 10 and had plenty of room!!! Our children LOVED the pool area & us adults loved the fact we had beach service every day!! We had to "try out" the Okaloosa Island Fire & Rescue while we were there and was VERY APPRECIATIVE that they were only across the street. It made a very serious "incident" which needed immediate attention have a wonderful outcome due to rapid response!!! Also had to Visit the Fort Walton Medical Center which was also so very helpful and made a bad situation turn into a good situation!! We will for sure visit Summer Place again!!! We loved it and can't wait to be there again!!! Thank you Barry for such smooth transaction and for sharing such a wonderful and beautiful place!!!
