About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 2 Built-In Bunks, Sleeps 6

The Blue Dolphin, by far one of the coziest developments on the Island.

A few of our highlights:: *Corner Unit, *Directly on the beach-no streets to cross, *Beach set-up included in season, *Free High Speed Internet, *Ten unit complex-quaint, no crowded elevators.

With its soaring nine foot ceilings, granite countertops, and tile flooring, the Blue Dolphin is the ultimate Destin-Fort Walton Beach area get away. You'll love the intimate setting with only ten units in the entire complex. Because of our size no time is wasted getting to the beach due to a crowded elevator. Our tastefully decorated condo has recently been painted throughout as well as updated decor. stackable washer and dryer, a fully-stocked kitchen, new stove and microwave, covered parking, and a 17-foot balcony for enjoying the splendid view of the Emerald Coast on Okaloosa Island.

Our lovely Gulf Front Corner unit has amazing views of the beach and Emerald Green waters of the Gulf. The unit has 2 queen size beds and built in bunk beds for your sleeping enjoyment.

About Ricardo & Anita Moreno

Anita and I are so fortunate to be owners of a home on Okaloosa Island. Right on the beach, fabulous view in a quaint building (by condo standards). We love that we have the ability to share with others who also have a passion for the beach and creating wonderful vacation memories. Anita is from Lexington, KY and I am from Bogota, Colombia. We met in San Diego, CA, lived in San Antonio, TX for 5 years and now call St. Louis home. She is a Food Network junkie and I am a road cyclist. We have a son in California working and we try and make it to the condo once or twice a year if we are lucky.

Please come and enjoy our condo. We'd love to fluff the pillows for you!

Ricardo & Anita Moreno purchased this condo in 2003

Why Ricardo & Anita Moreno chose Fort Walton Beach

We chose this property to purchase after seeing many, many units. We vacationed on Okaloosa Island but weren't sold on the large units with busy elevators and beaches.

What makes this condo unique

We stayed in the unit before purchasing and just fell in love with it. No busy elevators, easy access to the beach and what a beautiful beach it is! Most of all we just loved that we weren't squished in with a lot of people and we really felt like we had a relaxing time between the beach, the pool, the beachy town of Fort Walton and all the fun and great food that Destin has to offer we couldn't go wrong.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Anita,

Your condo was lovely and what a beautiful beach! My husband and I were very pleased as were our friends. We would like to rent again in the future. Hope you found the place in good condition. Thank you.

Excellent beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Property was well kept and on a great part of the beach. Everything was as advertised and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The free beach umbrella and chair service was a nice plus. Only downside I noticed is that WiFi access is slow and doesn't reach very well to the front rooms if at all. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first time renting a condo while on vacation (vs. a hotel).

First impression - the condo was much bigger than expected walking through the front door.

It was very nicely decorated and had lots of windows overlooking the gulf. The place was well stocked with plates, glasses, etc.

The beach was a couple of hundred feet from the door, but I spent most of my time in the pool!

The pool was beautiful and clean and warm (warmer than the gulf in late August) and it was salt water and not chlorine (no burning eyes!)!

Would love to stay there again if I head down that way in the future.

Great Condo, Excellent Location, Small Building Benefits with Fantastic Views.

  • 5 of 5

This Condo is extremely well supplied both in Bedrooms and Kitchen. The Views from the Living Room and Balcony are second to none! The building is smaller so no crowds on elevators to contend with. Located right on the beach so short walk over Dune to Beach. Condo was very comfortable and very clean!! Anita is great to work with and communications are good. Weather was cooler this year but we are hoping to go back and spend all the month of February next year.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and love it! everything is so nice and with having the Beach close and with your two chairs and umbrella is great! Also having access to the private pool makes it nice as well. We like staying here for there are only like 11 condo units total so you have no trouble with tons of people in the pool, elevator, or getting to the beach and the beach area. My kids and I love and plan to come back and stay here again. Thanks so much!
