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 Florida Main North West

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!!

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.

We had a wonderful time and the condo was amazing!! We had more family staying at other condos in Island Princess and ours was the best by far! It is decorated so nicely and had everything we needed. We loved the view from the balcony-- right on the beach-- amazing! It was a nice surprise to have beach chairs and unmbrellas for our room also! It was very clean (a few of the other condos my family stayed in had dirty floors). Everything was awesome!! Thank you so much for sharing your home away from home with us!

Beautiful Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo from 6/3/17-6/10/17. The kitchen was very well stocked. We made breakfast and lunch there most days. The beds were super comfortable. Out on the porch she had a large Rubbermaid deck box full of beach toys/accessories. My kids loved the fact they didn't have to go to the store to get sand buckets. The view was amazing from the very nice balcony! Loved that is was a corner unit so there was no foot traffic past our door we were kind of off the main hallway. Next time we come back, I will not have to bring half the stuff we did because this was so well stocked! Truly was a great home away from home. Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your home away from home!
