Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a couple in our early sixties. We live in Tennessee and are semi-retired. The Mr. grew up in Key West and has always loved the ocean. The Mrs. grew up in Nashville and spent most childhood summers on these beaches. We both enjoy being on the beach, scuba diving, fishing, and cruising. One of our most favorite things is to just have a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise on the gulf.

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
We chose this location because our families have been coming here for 40 years. Also important to choosing the Ft. Walton area was the fact we can drive here in about 8 hrs from Nashville. Ft. Walton has the same beautiful white sand of Destin and Panama City without the the crush of people and traffic of those areas. The traffic is quite reasonable and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping areas under 3 miles from our condo. And new for 2015 is the complimentary beach service.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Ft. Walton is more quiet and relaxed than Destin and Panama City. The beaches are well maintained and groomed by the city daily. It's just a wonderful place to relax and unwind.
