About Pat Okenica
My husband, Ed & I currently live in Georgia and have been visiting this area for 35 years! We own and operate our own real estate firm at Lake Oconee, which is located 70 miles east of Atlanta, Ga. Old enough to retire, but not ready to give up the 'game'! We have the best of all worlds....living and working on a beautiful 19,000 acre lake in Georgia & owning a special getaway place on Okaloosa Island! We manage it ourselves and it's always very clean and neat. And, of course, the view of the Gulf is like no other!! We would love to share it with you! Please give us a call and we'll tell you all about it!
Pat Okenica purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Pat Okenica chose Ft Walton Beach
Emerald green waters, pristine beaches, away from everything, but close driving distance to it all. Stunning sunset views. No impersonal high rise buildings! Need we say more?
What makes this Condo unique
Small Complex, 27 units - 100 feet from the beach - Corner/end unit with it's own private entrance. Extra window in living area enhances the views and the brightness in the rooms, not to mention the view! Sitting on the balcony makes you feel like you could 'reach out and touch the water'. Dolphins playing and Pelicans swooping in for their 'catch of the day'. Convenient to shopping, restaurants & entertainment, yet away from the crowds & traffic of Destin. It's a dream come true!

This is my third year here the most fantastic view, clean, plenty of amenities, watching the dolphins every day about 100feet from shore. The beach is beautiful will be back next. Year for sure😊😊😊
Thanks so very much for taking the time to share your experience! My repeat guests are like family to me! Hurry back! Pat
Perfect! View from Pats Paradise is nothing short of incredible! Weather was 70 and sunny every day!
Relaxing, stunning views of the Emerald water from your balcony. Incredibly soft white sand, Seafood restaurants galore. All this along with ocean themed decor in every room! Perfect vacation.. Thanks Pat & Ed 🤗
Staying in Paradise
This was our second stay at this beautiful condo. During this visit our parents stayed at a condo in a complex next to Island Sands. They liked our condo much better and they paid more than we did. You feel right at home and the views are breathtaking. The condo has everything you need for your stay. I will definitely be back next year. Thanks Pat for making our stay so comfortable.
It's always a pleasure to host your stay in Paradise! Really appreciate the positive comments, especially about the rental prices! I really try and stay as competitive as I possibly can and offer a reasonably priced property for the location. I also hope you enjoyed the newly added beach service. See You Next Time! Pat
Cleanest & most inviting condo. Right on top of the Beach!
Condo is cheery and makes me smile every time we come to stay! Has everything you could imagine and more. The corner/end unit offers more privacy with the separate entrance. Can't wait to return!
Very clean,condo well stocked, very comfortable, fantastic beach view,love the inside decor.
This was our 4th year at Ms.Pats, we absolutely love it here, great beach access, close to Destin,the beach feel of the condo tops it all off .Everything you need to have a vacation in paradise is right here....looking forward to next year already.
The condo has a great view of the ocean, the balcony is perfect for all day relaxing.
The owner Pat was right on top of everything needed. When I arrived I had trouble with the lock on the door -called her, she answered, told me where to get a key immediately. Went in, condo was not clean, called her back, she had someone over in a couple of hours to clean. Of course, it took a while, so basically lost the first afternoon and evening. If you like Shabby Beach Chic, this place is for you! There were decorations and wall art everywhere! Not an inch of wall space left..claustrophobic to me. The condo is in good shape, but furniture old and lumpy, towels threadbare. The outside light is right above the bedroom window, so the bedroom is brighter at night than during the day..The white blinds don't work here.
I was drawn to this unit because it was a corner one. The view out the side was another condo very close, so that was the view there.
I just felt like the condo was a bit overpriced for the age...also, no elevator!
I apologize you were not satisfied with your experience. Our repeat guests over 14 plus years. who return every year, speak about the pleasure it brings to them and their families. This is the only negative review I have ever had.. I respect and truly thank you for your comments.
