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.

Best week ever

  • 5 of 5

The Townsend's have done an absolutely amazing job of supplying everything you need for a worry free week at the beach. From the large pots and pans to the beach chairs and toys outside, it's all there!! The corner unit is especially quiet but very convenient to the elevator. The views from the corner balcony is gorgeous. I highly recommend this unit...unless it's the week I can go!!

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this Island Princess condo. The view was great, everything you could think of was supplied; kitchen appliances, gadgets, etc; extra beach chairs, toys; sheets, blankets, pillows, comfortable beds...overall great experience and would definitely stay at this condo again.

My only complaint would be that the elevator closest to this condo did not work the week we were there but this was not the owner's fault.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this unit multiple times and have always enjoyed it. Unbeatable views and everything you need, and then some, stocked in the condo. This unit is also very quiet since it sits on the corner so there isn't any noise from the hallways that make it to your bedrooms.
