EXPERIENCED VACATION RENTAL OWNERS – WHY WE BOUGHT THIS CONDO
Besides our first vacation rental condo located in Summit County, CO (VRBO 382) Beach Escape is our second condo in the Dune Pointe building on Okaloosa Island, FL. (Our first, “Beachy Keen” is advertised on VRBO 2462 and is located one floor above this one and our third "Beach Bliss" is advertised on VRBO 1231801 and is located two floors above this one.) All of these condos have one thing in common: “Million $$ Views”!
We love the Dune Pointe Condominium building because at 1285 square feet the units are some of the most spacious that we found during our property search. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax without feeling cramped or on top of each other.
Additionally, Dune Pointe is a low-density building, with only 20 units. This means that our guests will have plenty of room on the private beach since they will be sharing it with just 19 other units, unlike most other condo buildings that have many more units.
DIRECT BEACHFRONT LOCATION – NO ROADS TO CROSS
Because of this building’s location (directly on the beach) our guests have access to the beach just a short walk over the dunes using the private walkway. You will not have to pack up your car to drive to a public beach access, nor carry your equipment, coolers, etc. across a road to the beach. As a service for our guests, your stay at Beach Escape includes a reservation for two beach chairs and one umbrella set up each day on the beach just for you (March 1 through October 31).
PERFECT FOR SMALL FAMILIES OR TWO COUPLES TRAVELING TOGETHER
Each spacious bedroom has plenty of room to unpack and settle in.
The master bedroom has a new king bed, a 39" flat screen TV & DVD player, roomy walk-in closet, and an en-suite bathroom with a jetted whirlpool tub for a relaxing soak after a long day in the sun! There is also a walk-in shower and a vanity with one sink in this bathroom.
The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, a 32" flat screen TV & DVD player. The hall bathroom is located next to the 2nd bedroom and has a combination tub/shower and a vanity with one sink.
Quality linens, bedding and fluffy bath towels, hand towels and washcloths are provided for your use. (We do NOT provide beach towels, however. If you don’t want to pack your own you can buy inexpensive beach towels at one of the many beach stores in the area.) There is a hair dryer in each bathroom.
The spacious living area features extra-wide sliding doors that welcome the awesome Gulf view into the room. You will find comfortable seating in the living room, along with a 55" flat screen TV & DVD player. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, suitable for 2 small children or one larger child/teen or adult.
The dining room table seats six people.
The kitchen features white quartz counters, stainless appliances and is stocked with dishes, glassware, flatware, pots & pans, coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven and dishwasher…. everything needed to please the chef in your family!
For your convenience there is a stackable washer/dryer in the utility closet. You will also find 2 Beach Chairs & a Boogie Board in this closet for your enjoyment during beach season.
DUNE POINTE BUILDING AMENITIES
The building has plenty of parking in front and also an elevator for the convenience of our guests. There is an area on the side of the building that has a charcoal barbecue grill that our guests can use when they wish to cook out. (Guests must provide their own charcoal for the grill.)
A beautiful, sparkling swimming pool is located in the back between the building and the beach. For those who don’t care to sit on the beach there are lounge chairs on the deck around the pool. Please play safely and supervise children at all times; there is not a lifeguard on duty at this pool.
There are restrooms available for our guests’ use in the pool area, which means you don’t have to go all of the way up to the condo to use the bathroom when enjoying the beach. When you are finally ready to go inside for the day you can rinse off all of the sand and salt water at the outdoor shower.
In the winter the swimming pool at Dune Pointe is heated to 80 degrees when the water temperature falls below that temperature EXCEPT when the air temperature falls below 45 degrees. The pool is not heated when the outside temperature is 45 degrees or colder.

We are Redgie & Valerie and live in the beautiful state of Colorado! We love to travel and experience new adventures as often as possible. Valerie has been involved in the vacation rental industry since 2002 (a former employee/Manager at VRBO/Homeaway until she retired in 2013.) We bought our first vacation rental property in Summit County, CO (VRBO 382) and now are happy to own three beachfront condos in the warmer climate of Florida (VRBO 2462, 232742 & 1231801)! Our fifth vacation rental (VRBO 1083701) is a home in Lynchburg, VA. We have loved sharing our homes with our guests over the years.
Valerie purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Valerie chose Ft Walton Beach
We chose this property because of its location on the small, less-congested Okaloosa Island. We love that Dune Pointe is a small, low-density building (with just 20 units) which means more room on the private beach for owners and guests.
What makes this Condo unique
The real reason we were drawn to this unit was the million $$ views of the beach and the Gulf from the balcony of our unit! Just like our CO mountain condo on the lake, we knew we could change everything about the condo except its location and view! We love relaxing on the balcony watching the dolphins play in the surf of the turquoise waters and listening to the sounds of the waves washing upon the sugar white sands on the beach!

My six year old grandson asked me if where we were staying was like heaven.
This unit is absolutely beautiful. You will not be disappointed. It radiates calmness and relaxation. Beach is gorgeous and the condo is well stocked with everything you could possibly need. It is very clean and even more beautiful than the pictures. Loved it!!!!
The condo was spotless. We loved everything about it especially the ocean view!
It was the nicest condo we ever stayed in. Wonderful vacation !
Our family had a wonderful stay and the condo is perfect. Gorgeous view and everything is fully stocked for cooking. Beach was very nice and not crowded and parking is easy to come by. We will be back! Thanks again for the best trip to Ft. Walton!
5 star Condo
The condo had all accommodation you would ever need during your stay, from an adorable beach bag to a basket to put your sand filled shoes in when you come in from the beach. The furniture was adorable and made the condo inviting and made you want to just stay there and enjoy the view. The large balcony was where we ate breakfast every morning and were able to enjoy the view of the Dolphins for about a hour each morning. The balcony is also provided with a wicker love seat and chair with cushions that provided a very comfortable relaxation time at nights to sit and relax while listening and watching the ocean waves. The balcony is also a great place to come in and get out of the sun in the afternoons there is very little sun that comes onto the balcony. The pool was very quiet and pretty much to ourselves but was maintenced daily and was very nice and clean. The beach chair service gentleman Travis was very friendly and took his job very serious. If a storm was coming he would be putting the umbrellas down to accommodate the weather. You knew promptly every morning at 8am the umbrellas and chairs would be up and ready for the day. The beach is not over crowded and we met a lot of really nice people during our visit. The condo is Very neat and clean, I would highly recommend this condo, I know that we will be returning for our future trips to the Destin area.
This is exactly as pictured. Beautiful decor, super clean and an amazing view! I loved the size of this condo, it was never crowded and steps away from the beach. . Valarie thought of everything and spared no expense. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were clean and soft. We will definitely stay here again!
Condo was absolutely beautiful! Stunning views and we had everything we needed and more
Owners were easy to get ahold of and very friendly. Condo couldn't be more beautiful and beach was so easily accessed
In nearby Destin you will find attractions such as the Big Kahunas Water Park, Destin Fishing Museum, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Go Carts and more!
