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.

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 lives 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.

Relaxing week on the beach - Mission Accomplished!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Island Princess. We especially liked Mike and Jackie's unit!!. We had a great view of the beach from the unit, the kitchen was fully stocked, and the unit was beautifully decorated, and there isn't anything we needed that we didn't have. Comfortable bed, and large TVs in the unit. The beach service each day was fabulous - all we needed was our cooler and our sunscreen. The chairs and umbrella were set up each day by the time we got to the beach, which is about 8:30 each day. Mike was super easy to work with, very attentive, and made sure our stay was perfect. Our goal was to do absolutely nothing for a week, and forget about the stresses of life for a while - mission accomplished!! Great unit and would definitely stay here again.

Great View of the Bay and Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay! The condo was ready for us at 4. The property was very clean. The owners, Mike and Jackie, checked in on us later that evening to make sure we were okay and to see if we needed anything, which we appreciated.

We would definitely stay at this condo again if we ever make it back down to Fort Walton.

Thank you for the hospitality, Mike and Jackie!

Love Okaloosa Island!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the month of January 2017. The unit was exactly as described and the owners were great to work with! We only had to contact them a couple of times and the minor issues were resolved quickly. The beds are very comfortable and we enjoyed the many extras provided. The view of the beach was nice too. We were able to walk to some restaurants on the island and were away from the hustle and bustle of Destin but close enough to enjoy (only 6 miles away) when we wanted to. Some restaurants to recommend are Hightide (awesome gumbo), Anglers (Tuesday night oyster special), Helen Back (great pizza) and McGuires (Destin). We would definitely recommend this unit to others for rental. Hoping to return next year.
