About Joy Townsend

Welcome to our 'Home Away From Home.' We live in Pottsboro, Texas, on the Texas/Oklahoma border, one hour north of Dallas. It is an 11 hour drive to arrive at our beach home, however well worth it when we arrive and see the beautiful views.

Joy Townsend purchased this condo in 2008

Why Joy Townsend chose Fort Walton Beach

We absolutely love spending our family vacations on the white sugar sand beaches of Okaloosa Island. Fort Walton Beach offers wonderful local restaurants and many more in nearby Destin just 10 minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

We love the relaxing feeling we get when we arrive at our Island Princess Condo. It truly is our home away from home. We tried not to leave out any amenities. With wonderful restaurants and grocery stores nearby, there is no need to go far to enjoy a wonderful family beach vacation. But if you so choose to venture out, you won't be disappointed at what Fort Walton Beach and Destin have to offer.

Wonderful Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in other units at Island Princess in the past but this condo is by far the best we have stayed in. There is nothing that you could want for at this condo. Kitchen has everything you could want, beach toys are beyond imagination. The grandsons had a blast at the beach with all the beach toys. It just feels like home the minute you walk in the door and the corner balcony view is beautiful.

Thank you Joy and family for sharing your home away from home with us. We had a wonderful vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We try very hard to make our "home away from home" yours too! I love to cook, so it is important to me and for our guests that the kitchen is well equipped. Also important is that our guests are comfortable in our beach condo. We hope we can accommodate you again on a future beach vacation.

So glad we found this unit! We usually stay at the complex but this specific unit was more than I could have asked for! Very well stocked with everything, comfortable, home-like and had great views from the balcony! Hope to stay there again next year! And I got the refund on the deposit within a week! Thanks Joy for sharing your home with us!!! We loved it!

This condo was more than we could have ever expected. We actually couldn't find the unit at first because it was gated. The privacy and view was great! Each room had comfortable beds and a unique décor that made you feel like you were at home. The location was great and convenient. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The condo was simply perfect. Joy responded quickly to my inquiry, kept in contact, provided the information needed, and I had the deposit back within the first week. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

Wonderful Six Weeks!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 weeks at this condo in January and February of 2015. Exceptional location -- quiet and accessible to surrounding area. Great beach décor, splendid balcony area with high chairs to give unobstructed view of the Gulf, good furniture, including recliners, onsite washer and drier, and lovely bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. This would have been an excellent rating, if we did not have construction repairs going on during our stay. Loved the Okaloosa Island area; would like to come back.

One Regret

  • 5 of 5

We wish we would have booked this condo for two weeks instead of one!~ The reviews read that Joy had provided everything. I still brought my swimways floats, my wine goblets and even my Tervis tumblers!~~ She had ALL of them in her condo!~ I hesitate to say how really nice this condo is because it would stay booked year round and I would have to find another place! Million dollar view, very comfortable beds, perfect location for shopping and dining and entertainment! Looking forward to our next ladies get away 2015!~ Thank you for sharing your home away from home!~

Great Condo, Great Weather, Good Memories

  • 5 of 5

The condo was outstanding - from the décor to all the essentials, we did not lack for anything. The kitchen has everything you need and the beds were great. Joy added her touch to every room -- you can tell she enjoys being there. We vacation at Ft. Walton often and have never had a condo that took care of all our needs like yours.

Thank you for sharing your home away from home with us.
