About Daniel Abshire

My wife and I love living on the water. We purchased this condo in 2001 and lived in it until 2009. We have built a home 40 miles away (also on the water) and decided to rent rather than sell so that we could use it a few times a year.

Daniel Abshire purchased this condo in 2001

Why Daniel Abshire chose Ft Walton Beach

We purchased this unit to live in and did live in it for seven years

What makes this condo unique

Great view! Beautiful Beach and sugar white sand

Very nice and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good time. The only issue was was an elevator malfunction which is out of the owners control, but nevertheless he addressed with me. Otherwise the rating would have been a five. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and the spacious condo never felt small. Beach chairs are also included with the unit. The unit is clean and well maintained.

I am a fellow condo owner and I will tell you that Dan Abshire and his wife are straight up folks with honesty and integrity.

If I chose to stay on Okaloosa Island again Dan would be the first person that I would contact.

Wonderful place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at The Palms. We love the fact that it is not a huge complex. This gives us more room on the beach. There is so much room in this condo. Our family loves going back here every year! Several updates in the complex that were beautiful this year. Thanks Daniel for always taking care of us!

The condo was great and it has everything you need. The balcony is HUGE and is amazing. We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the views and the sound of the water. I would definitely recommend staying here and hopefully we will be back.
