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 Ft Walton Beach

Why This Property? Location, we love an island feel with less hustle and bustle. 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 our realtor Chip Jervis, from our home town area, 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!

Delightful experience from March 31 to April 7

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this wonderful condo for a slice of heaven. Everything was available for comforts of home with the added benefit of sugar white soft sand of the beach. We drove to Destin and was disappointed at how commercialized and the beaches all roped off of private property at each condo leaving only small area to walk . It was like walking in a construction zone. Ft Walton beach is beautiful with no obstacles on the beach. If you want to be pampered this is the condo to rent. We sat out on the balcony for many a cup of coffee and meal overlooking the beach to the left and the bay to the right. So peaceful. Mike and Jackie were gracious condo owners who were so pleasant to work with on any question we may have. Delightful experience from March 31st to April 7th. Beds so comfortable, water pressure wonderful in showers, every kitchen item imaginable. Even thoughtful to have flashlights, games, 3 TV's, videos etc. The list goes on and on. Can you tell we really enjoyed? :)) :))

Enjoyed!

We stayed here for Spring break in March, 2018 and really enjoyed our stay! The condo is beautiful and the owners were very responsive to questions. Unit is located on an end so there is no traffic or loud distractions. Beach was beautiful and beach service helpful. Parking was convenient. Highly recommend!

Really nice owners and condo!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed during spring break in March and it couldn't have been better. Condo was clean, instructions on arriving and leaving were clear. We had everything we needed for meals and even visits to the gulf (chairs, sand buckets, shovels, nets for crab hunting at night, etc.). When we get back to Fort Walton Beach we will surely try to book this condo again.
