About Mike and Jackie Conner, Owners

We are high school sweethearts reunited after 20 years. Together, we have made many memories visiting the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area. Ironically, both our dreams have been to own a condo on the beach. After many years of visiting the Panhandle area, we fell in love with Fort Walton Beach on Okaloosa Island.

Mike and Jackie Conner, Owners purchased this condo in 2016

Why Mike and Jackie Conner, Owners chose Fort Walton Beach

After researching and renting many condos over the years, we quickly learned our likes and dislikes. Mike stumbled across this condo one night and we both agreed it had many of our wants and needs. During our last vacation in October 2016 we met with a realtor from our home town area, Chip Jervis, who now resides in Destin. After viewing this condo, we knew immediately this was our home away from home. We invite you to your home away from home for your next vacation.

What makes this condo unique

The views of the beach and intercoastal waterway from a rare oversized balcony are stunning. Mike fell in love with the double sliding doors opening to the balcony and Jackie was pleased with the open concept and oversized kitchen that has lots of counter space. This area is convenient to shopping, restaurants, water sports and a fantastic pier.

Summer Vacation July 5-9

  • 5 of 5

Mike & Jackie Conner Condo-618 at Island Princess was amazing! My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. Condo was beautifully decorated, well equipped with everything you need and more. Beds were comfortable including the sofa bed. TV in both bedrooms including the living room. We loved the access to the balcony from the Master Bedroom too. Condo was very clean and the side view of the beach was beautiful. Mike & Jackie were great to work with from the first moment I reach out to them via email, upon arrival, throughout our stay and till the end. We will definitely go back and stay again in Condo 618. Thanks again Mike & Jackie for everything!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Island Princess Unit 618 was perfect for our little family. It was well equipped, nicely decorated, and roomy enough for the four of us. It has a beautiful view of the ocean and the bay. We loved the location and it's right on the beach! The owners were available almost immediately, and even checked in on us when the weather was supposed to get bad. Check in and out couldn't have been easier. We will DEFINITELY come back again! Thank you for a wonderful beach experience!!

We loved our stay at the beautiful Island Princess 618!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely beautiful! It met our expectations and then some. It was very spacious and clean. The kitchen had everything that you could ask for right down to the cookware, coffee pot, a Keurig, toaster silverware, plates, glasses. etc.

There was no waiting to check in or out. Once the housekeeper texted us that our room was ready, we were in our room within mins.

The bathrooms were stocked properly with plenty of towels and wash cloths. The beds were big and comfortable.

With the convenience of having a washer and dryer in the room, I was able to do all of our laundry before heading back home.

Denver and I both had conference calls that Wednesday morning. It' didn't feel much like work when you are sitting on a beautiful balcony, coffee in hand, overlooking the ocean.

We look forward to staying with you again in the near future!! 🏝🐳🦀.

Great location with a view of the ocean and beautifully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and inviting with plenty of room. everything we needed was provided. the condo was much better to stay in than a hotel. the managers contacted us several times and walked us through the process of getting into the room and even called to make sure we were enjoying our stay. so appreciative of their efforts and the memorable time we had there.
