Wonderful family Thanksgiving vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice unit with plenty of room for my family to have our Thanksgiving meal in with beautiful views of the beach and gulf. We had lovely weather with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets viewed easily from the balcony, or an easy walk to the beach. Within walking distance to eating places and the pier. I hope for my return visit that this unit may be available for rental again. The one negative that I encountered was that with 3 bathrooms, 1 having a garden tub, the water heater was not sufficient enough to handle all of them with hot water. Only 2 baths before hot water was gone and we did not fill garden tub. We had to stagger our bathing so that each had plenty of hot water. This however would not hinder me from going back. It was a beautiful place with lovely views that we really enjoyed. We also had plenty of pots, pans and utensils in kitchen to cook with.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO for the past 6 years and are familiar with the process and the options. We discovered that we would be able to go on a vacation about 2 weeks prior to leaving. I contacted several different condo owners in the area, Dave was not only quick to reply, all others took several days, but he was pleasant and helpful. CONDO: The pictures on this page do not adequately show the property - it is much BETTER in person! We are a family of 5 with children ages 4, 9, and 11. The two youngest boys had their own room, bathroom, beds, and TV and loved it. Our daughter had her own room, bathroom, TV, and bed and felt like a queen. The master bedroom was large with a large bathroom, very comfortable bed, and an incredible view of the beach through the sliding glass door and window.The kitchen was full stocked with everything you need, the dining room had a large table, and the living room also had a great view through the sliding glass door. Overall, it was clean, comfortable, well put together, and the corner location was nice as well. BEACH: The beach was great! Not crowded at all and the chairs were spread out so you didn't feel as if you were sitting on top of other people. We interacted with both beach service guys who were extremely nice, always smiling, and very helpful. GULF DUNES: Our boys used the heated pool everyday, bathrooms are located next to it, which was nice, carts are available to use to move your luggage, a trash shoot, and good parking. PRICE: I looked at 30 different condos all along Ft. Walton and Destin. This was by far, the best price for a 3 bedroom condo, and many times better than a 2 bedroom. Because of this, it was possible for us to go. We know that a 2 bedroom would have resulted in a stressful week of vacation. RECOMMEND: Unless you are a finicky, Negative-Nancy, Fun-Hater, you will love this condo, this beach, and this area. We highly recommend it and will for sure stay there again if at all possible in the future!

Great vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation with our 3 grown children and son-in-law. Having the full size beds in the 3rd bedroom was excellent to accommodate 6 adults (twin or bunk beds just wouldn't have worked for us). And everyone having their own bathroom was wonderful. The corner location was fabulous - the unit has great views of the beach from the living area and from the master suite. I wish the weather had cooperated more, but we had a great time. Being so close to the pier (we were able to go fishing one day-didn't catch as much as we'd like but totally enjoyed seeing the dolphins - especially the mom with her baby) and other activities in the area such as snorkeling, was so convenient! The condo was clean, well stocked and very comfortable. Comfy seating for 4, so with 6 adults we had to pull over a couple of dining chairs which wasn't as comfortable for a late-night movie, but all in all it was a perfect vacation. David was very quick to respond and easy to deal with. Their price was great. I would highly recommend them and will definitely stay with them again.

Perfect Spring Break for the Family!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is actually much nicer than the pictures reflect - we fell in love with it!!! Located on the second floor with a beautiful beach view from the living area as well as the master bedroom, we enjoyed watching the dolphins while having our morning coffee. During the day we would take the grand kids to the beach and then to the pool and back to the beach so we could stay until the evening to watch the gorgeous sunsets. Nana enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen while preparing meals and the ample space to serve at the large table as well as at the kitchen bar. Some of the upgrades were granite counter-tops, plantation shutters, a huge garden tub in the master bath and a covered parking space. Every need and detail was taken care of and decorator touches carried out in each of the rooms. This condo is conveniently located to all of the fun attractions and great restaurants. David was wonderful to work with and I hope our family will be able to return soon.

Wonderful vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We (3 couples) were in Fort Walton Beach for our friends getting married on the beach! Having 3 bedrooms with our own private restroom was great! We loved the condo. The beach view can be seen from several areas. The large balcony was perfect for us to sit out on and relax. We loved having a corner unit. We were not able to use the parking space due to our van being too tall, but the space was right there by the entrance to the steps.

It would have been nice to have pot holders and a blender in the condo. Our friends that got married were at a condo complex 2 down from us (Sea Oats). After the wedding they rented the banquet room there to have a small reception and dinner. We had to bake macaroni & cheese and baked beans to take to the dinner. There were not any pot holders in the condo. We were able to buy some and we managed!!! I would definitely rent this condo again if the 6 of us go back to this area.

P.S. I took a ton of pictures of the wedding and wedding party for the bride. My main camera battery died on me and I plugged in that evening when we returned to the condo. We were up at daylight the next morning and even though I plugged the battery charger in right by the suitcase, I forgot to grab the charger/battery out of the outlet. I realized that night as I was unpacking so, I emailed David and Paula immediately and told them exactly where I had left it. Housekeeping didn't report seeing it, but it was small and plugged in the outlet. So, they called the new guests that were there and yes, it was right where I said it was. David and Paula were kind enough to get the charger & battery and mail them back to me! They charged me a small fee and was able to take it off my deposit. Yes, I did see my deposit credit is on my credit card today and we have been home exactly one week! Thanks for everything and thanks for sharing your condo.
