Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 comfortably)

Welcome to our little piece of Paradise. Our balcony overlooks one of Florida's most beautiful beaches. Watch the dolphins swim by as you enjoy your morning coffee. Taking long walks on the beach, finding the perfect shell, building sand castles, its a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.

This tastefully decorated, fully stocked condo is right in the heart of Okaloosa Island. Explore the shopping, nightlife, and amenities of nearby Destin and still have a peaceful relaxing place to come home to right on the beach.

We also offer a beach service that will set up two chairs and an umbrella for you every morning right at the waters edge for no extra charge (March - October). Covered parking, a huge laundry room, leather furniture throughout, and the ocean right outside your bedroom window; this place has it all. Turtle Walk also has its own pool, outdoor shower, and dune walkover. There is a common barbecue pit on the ground floor. Turtle Walk has only 10 units, so the beach out front never gets too crowded.

Why Kate and Frank Pye chose Florida Main North West

Stayed there one summer, and loved it so much that we purchased a unit. Small complex so you don't have to deal with the crowds of the larger condos.

What makes this condo unique

Sugar white sands. Dolphins swimming by in the morning. Crystal clear water. Fishing at Okaloosa Pier. Watching volleyball down at the boardwalk. Glorious sunsets watched right from our balcony. Shopping at the Destin outlet mall. Nearby Airport (VPS) just 9 miles from the condo.

We just finished our 3rd stay at Kate's condo. It is now our one and only vacation rental of all time,what a joy and pleasure doing business with the owner Kate, she is quick to respond to all inquiries and any issues. The condo is beautifully decorated with everything any one could need, clean, quiet and well maintained. The included beach service as well as the extra beach needs in the closet are so convenient and useful. The kitchen is clean and very well stocked with everything to cook meals. The beach is beautiful to see out the living room windows and sitting on the balcony. The balcony is a great place to sit, drink coffee and watch the dolphins feed and make their way to the pier each morning. One added bonus, we have been able to make friends with 'Red" the maintenance man as well as other guests who we see from time to time. I have been traveling to the Gulf for at least 65 years and I can honestly say this is the best place we have ever stayed! Thank you Kate for sharing this " Piece of Paradise " with us again!

3rd Year in a Row!!

  • 5 of 5

We sadly just finished our 3rd Family (4th of July week) Vacation in a row at this beautiful condo. All I can say is WOW!!.. It just doesn't get any better. If your looking for a great place to stay, look no further, this is best place ever to spend a vacation, its beautifully furnished, comfortable beds, the kitchen has everything u need to prepare a full meal if you choose, just bring your food and your all set. The beachfront is just breathtaking complete with umbrella service. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners this year for the first time and it was so nice to actually tell them in person how much we loved it there, we took them breakfast treats the next morning just to show our appreciation for everything they do. We call it our home away from home and we have already made plans for our 4th (4th of July) year stay before we left.

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time staying at Turtle Walk; but, I promised myself as I was sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean, sipping my wine and just "being," that this would not be my last. The condo was warm and inviting, with every need met. The furniture was well kept and modern, kitchen had up to date appliances; and the bedrooms were cozy and comfortable.

It's been a long time since I've done something just for me, and I picked a wonderful place to finally do me. I will be back, again and again.

Beautiful Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second winter that my wife and I have been "Snowbirds" and our first stay in Turtlewalk.

The unit was beautiful. It was updated and was furnished with very comfortable furniture. We felt as comfortable for our four month stay as we do in our own home.

We love this area (Okaloosa Island) as the beaches are beautiful and the area gives you the feeling of seclusion, yet you are within minutes to Ft Walton Beach or Destin where you can find any kind of restaurant or shopping that you desire.

We loved watching the Dolphins and a couple of times they put on a great show doing flips right in front of the condo, I was able to capture it on video for my grandchildren to see.

Sitting on the balcony you catch the sun from sunrise to sunset.

We are already booked for next winter, and we hope to return here for many more winters. Our Ohio winter was brutal this year and we were glad to have missed it.

I have met a few guys that are now great golfing buddies and was able to go on a fishing charter with some friends where we all caught our limit for Amberjack and various other in season fish. I caught a 25 pound Red Snapper but since it was out of season we had to throw it back. Still it was great catching it and I have to picture to show off.

Stressed out Nurse from Texas

  • 5 of 5

Kate: what can I say? Everything described and more. I can truly say this has been the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken. With two young grandchildren wanting to go from the beach to the pool and back to the beach constantly, I felt the kids were safe and able to maneuver on their own. Met so many nice people; we all took turns looking after each others kids at the pool when called upon. Extremely clean condo and so easy to keep clean. My husband just wanted to sit on the balcony and look at everything and everyone; me and the grandkids were always at the beautiful beach or pool. You never have to leave to entertain anyone; if so, Destin is just down the road, along with the Fishing Pier and wonderful seafood. Can't wait to come back!
