About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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 right on the beach for my 'I hate vacancy' rate?

Our two bedroom condo in Fort Walton Beach Florida is located directly on the beach. The unit is a 6th floor condominium with a heated pool, tennis court, shuffle board and barbecue grills. We can sleep 6 comfortably. Our unit has a fully equipped kitchen, televisions and VCR in each bedroom. The family room has a DVD player. Relax and enjoy yourself in Ft Walton Beach, our condo is located on Okaloosa Island just 4-5 miles from Destin. Fort Walton Beach, Sea Oats, Okaloosa Island, Destin and FAMILY FUN are synonymous.

The famous Okaloosa Fishing Pier and Florida Gulfarium are within easy walking distance. Every amenity or activity you could possibly want at the beach is just minutes away along with your choice of dozens of restaurants of all types. You will not find a nicer condo with an owner who has tons of references. And don't forget to check out our no-cost hurricane policy...to protect your vacation investment...just in case.

About The Owner

We are not professional real estate people. I am kinda sorta retired. Having sold the primary business which was the first 4o years of my career, I now rent beach condos and have opened a friendly little frozen custard shop in our small town. We enjoy the rental business as it helps secure our family’s future and we are privileged to make so many friends all around the U.S. and Canada. We pride ourselves on having repeat guests and referrals. We need both to make this work. Along with our 19 year old daughter, we visit the area several times a year and are quite familiar with many of things to do. We are happy to share this information and our experiences with you so that you get a vacation experience that makes you want to return year after year. We’d love to have you visit. Please view the various lodging options and feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have or to make a reservation.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Florida Main North West

We are beach lovers who live near the Atlantic Ocean, only 3 hours from the resort town of Ocean City, MD. As beach lovers, we had heard of the powder white sands and gorgeous clear waters of the Gulf Coast. We first came to visit in 1999 and quickly fell in love with the place. We now drive the 16 hours to the Gulf instead of 3 hours to the Atlantic. Our love for the area has extended to 5 rental properties and a good excuse to visit as often as possible!

What makes this condo unique

We love staying at Sea Oats because of the awesome beach, which is just steps off the elevator. And in the cooler season, having a heated pool is wonderful. For those days when we are not on the beach, there are so many things to do that are just minutes from this condo. I don't care to drive all over when on vacation, and the location of Sea Oats allows us to be anywhere in the area quickly.

The condo was very comfortable. It had everything you would need while staying at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this Sea Oats condo. It is located near the beginning of Okaloosa Island, so you can walk to several shops and restaurants and entertainment places. The owner was very nice. The beds were comfortable and the a/c worked great. We have stayed in condos on higher floors that were hard to keep cool, but this one stayed cool the entire time (late July). The beach is very close and can be seen from the condo balcony. The furniture and tvs are not the most modern, but serve the purpose well. I don't think this condo deserves the bad review previously posted by someone else. If you want luxury, you will have to pay for it somewhere else. But if you want a nice and comfortable place to stay at the beach, this one is very good. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Was disappointed

  • 2 of 5

- Beach is nice,pool is nice, location is good

- Lot of little things were disappointing, no remotes to any of the tvs worked when I got there, 2 were fixed by the next evening, never had internet the whole week, what a run around it was to even try to address ..call management company, go to onsite office, no you have to call the HOA

- no toilet paper when I arrived, had 2 different people from mgmt company tell me different answers both saying there should have been some, I went out and bought my own ,

- lot of tears in the wall paper, plaster coming down in bedroom

- stains on the sheets

- looks like people before me had received a packet to run the dishwasher, I found an empty packet on top of the frig, I did not, cleaned by hand

- door lock tumbler is getting old, easy to lock door, hard to open lock

- was never told what the codes were to the exercise room or hot tub, someone at the pool finally told me two days later

I called the management company twice early on my first morning, was told I woudl be called back, I had to call back mid afternoon to get answers to what was going to get fixed .......

I was just disappointed, have stayed in the area 4 times in last two years, next time I will pay the couple hundred dollars more for the week at places in the area

Owner's Response: WOW! I was away myself when the email came in the day after the guest arrived. I replied immediately from my iPad and never heard back until I received a "salty" message the day of departure. Not knowing what exactly happened, I checked with my mgt company who had a different story. This guest apparently went to the wrong location (Sea Oats Motel in Destin???) despite the name, number and address of the unit being on the rental agreement. He then called the mgt co and berated them saying he was scammed. Then he made it to the right building in Ft Walton Bch and went to the wrong unit (went to 603 instead of 608). He then called and berated the mgt co again as if it was their fault he misread the paper.Checking the inventory list from housekeeping, it turns out the unit was stocked with TP, they almost ran out the next day, I'm not sure why. As for the TV's, a previous guest must have played with the remote and changed the settings. (it happens all the time).It was no big deal to restore the proper settings. This review is the first complaint we've heard from him about door locks or gym access. I guess we've reached the point where we need to enhance the complaint to try to justify it. There is WiFi in the unit. We cannot figure out why he could not access it as instructions are provided with arrival info. I'm sorry the gentleman was disappointed, but we've had 15 previous guests in 2015, several of them repeat guests, and these are the first complaints of any type that we've heard . Our best guess is the gentleman came in with a chip on his shoulder from his difficulties in getting to the right place and was determined to have a bad experience. I hope he does not call again. I will not rent any of my 9 units to him, and neither will my mgt co. with the ones they rent themselves.
