About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

YOU MUST BE 25 YEARS OLD TO RENT!!! NO exceptions!

Wow- you would probably spend more for a single lousy room at the Ramada. Why not stay in a 2 BR condo with a SPECTACULAR VIEW of the gulf for my 'I hate vacancy' rate?

Come and enjoy this spacious, two bedroom, two bath condo with private baLcony directly on the beach. New sofa, new patio chairs!***THIS IS A TOP FLOOR, GULF FRONT UNIT***.

The balcony view overlooks the white sand and emerald ocean. Wake up to a wonderful sunrise and sip a tropical drink while viewing the colorful sunset. Catch a glimpse of the dolphins swimming while looking out of the balcony or the master bedroom window. This condo has two queen beds, two twin beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully furnished. A large laundry room is also available. Pets are NOT allowed and No Smoking Please.

About The Owner

I like fun businesses. In addition to the rental units at the beach, I own a frozen custard shop/arcade. Its all about having fun! The only problem is that I don't get enough time at the beach myself.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Fort Walton Beach

The location is great.

The view is even better.

The owner makes the process simple.

All you need to do is have a great time!

What makes this condo unique

You are so beachfront you can see the beach and the water from the living room. A nice big balcony makes a great place to begin your day with a cup of coffee and that view. Just minutes from most of the major attractions in Destin and Ft Walton Beach.

exterior of property was in great condition. The unit its self needed an heavy duty intense cleaning bathroom base boards, not just the hour or hour and a half between guest. It needs dusting on the return vents, the cable covers on the ceilings for the lights, ceiling fan blades, light fixtures and the base boards. It also needs some repairs to the base boards, wall paper, paint, walls need scrub, panty shelves need some sprucing up, ceiling fixed from previous leakes, closed doors doors need to be cleaned and one bathroom door fixed or replaced. I realize its a rental and people abuse the property but some things should be taken care of during the one hour cleaning. Also, light bulbs out in just about every room.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The items related to cleaning have been passed along to our housekeeping service. As for the interior cosmetics, we do come down at the end of every season to take care of these things and will be spending the last 2 weeks of August attending to these types of upgrade opportunities. with the unit having only 4 unrented nights the entire summer season, it is not surprising to have some things that require attention and now that the season is winding down, these things will be addressed.

Great value. Amazing views right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was like a home away from home for us! We have a two year old daughter and 4 year old son. They felt right at home. This unit is centrally located on the top floor with a beachfront view. We had breakfast on the oversized patio every morning. I cooked dinner every night. I used Walmart Grocery Pickup service in Ft. Walton. Our groceries were ready upon arrival. This is just a short 15 minute drive into town. We came in from the beach for lunch. We went out late after dark and searched for ghost crab. This is the perfect spot. We also did the dolphin and firework show pontoon charter booked through Destin Snorkel Thursday evening in Destin. Then we ended up at AJ's Oyster Shanty on the way back to Okaloosa Island. It was a family friendly hang out with a bar and dance area. There was a lip syncing, and dress up contest going on that night along with a side stage for the kids to get up on and dance hoolahoop etc. We had so much fun! It was an amazing end to our stay. Beds were comfortable. Air conditioning cool. Plenty of towels. We slept with the master bedroom window open to hear the peaceful sound of the waves. We hope to come back again next year!

Great place to stay! Great view for sunrise and/or sunset, swimming pool, tennis court, and shuffleboard, small workout room. Good seafood (Rick's Crab Trap on Eglin Pkwy also great for place to watch sports), steak and ethnic restaurants nearby.; miniature golf, Gulfarium, Adventure Land to appeal to the younger set. Many places of worship. Good golf courses. We've spent the winter here for over 10 yrs. Property is well-maintained. Good fishing!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were at this island echos condo for 5 days and then were emailing Phil asking if we could stay more days. We had so much fun! We normally stay in destin but loved this location so much more because there wasn't crowded beaches. The condo has a beautiful view and more than enough space for the 10 of us that went. It had everything we needed which made everything very convenient for us. Phil made the whole process fast and easy! We will definitely be back!!
