About Angela Parkhurst
Hi, Y'all. My name is Angela Parkhurst and I'm fortunate to live in the very area where this condo is located. It's paradise on earth along this Emerald Coast. This makes it easy to manage my rental unit and be quick to resolve any issues (very few so far) that can arise. I am the proud mother of three wonderful men --- Jason, age 40, a professional photographer who travels all over the world taking photos for such publications as Sports Illustrated and USA Today, Cameron (Jason's twin), who lives in Atlanta and works very successfully in the wonderful world of finance and is the proud and doting father of Madison (age 6) and Carter (age 3). My youngest son, Clark, age 37, lives in Los Angeles, CA where he works in the movie and ad industry. I also am the proud and doting Mom of a Schnoodle named Lulu. Please come visit us. You'll love the condo and the incomparable view of the Gulf of Mexico.
Angela Parkhurst purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Angela Parkhurst chose Ft Walton Beach
I actually bought the unit and lived in it for three years so it has a lot of upgrades that other units don't have. The Destin/Fort Walton Beach area is one of the most beautiful areas on this earth --- snow white sandy beaches, clear and clean emerald green waters. There's plenty to do with over a hundred golf courses within 50 miles, water parks, wonderful restaurants, snorkeling and scuba diving and fishing beyond compare.

This was a perfect condo, even for our large group. The location is secluded from the nonsense of Destin beach goers and over crowded shorlines. The views are perfect from the top floor and the beach service was a really nice bonus. He was really great to work with each day and kept us in the same spot all 7 days. Angela was easy to communicate with and quick to respond. The pool was dirty most our stay, but this is absolutely no reflection on the owner at all. We reported it to the property manager but they said there were issues with something that required repaired. Totally out of Angela’s control and should reflect on this unit at all. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen had all the appliances we needed. It was really a great stay in a great place and we are looking forward to going back.
After a small glitch of not having a door code, which was quickly rectified by the owner even though she was out of town, we walked into a wonderful condo. We were looking for a spacious place for 5 adults and one very active 3 1/2 yr old. This was it! The view can’t be beat. Quiet, clean and nicely furnished. Loved the sectional couch for its comfort and room. Nice to have a bathroom for each bedroom and waking up to the view of the ocean in the master was wonderful. Two fridges were nice to have so you could keep your drinks in one. The only negative I saw was some of the dishes didn’t look like they had gotten clean. This wasn’t really a problem though, since I just rewashed them before using. The view is spectacular from a balcony that is huge. I will definitely recommend this condo to friends and family. I usually like staying different places when I come to Fort Walton, but I have found my happy place with this unit!
We had a wonderful time in this well designed and spacious condo!
Great for families
Beautiful view right on the beach. The island is a perfect place to come with your family.
The kids enjoyed riding bikes and being able to "do their own thing." Enjoyed the chair service. It's only a 30 minute walk down the beach to the pier/restaurants. Loved having 3 bedrooms and bathrooms since we brought our teenage kids and their friends. We would stay again.
Beautiful condo. Beautiful beach. We had an amazing time,
Gorgeous views! Very nice condo.
Views from the condo are beautiful! Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of space. I only had 2 issues with the property. The WiFi was not good at all. It would lwt us on intermittently. I contacted the owner and was given a different way to try, but it didn't work either. It was actually kind of nice being unplugged for the week though. The other issue was small and was no major impact. There was no soap or shampoo when we arrived (late at night), including hand soap to wash hands after using the bathroom. Luckily I had some hand sanitizer wipes with me that we could use until we could get to the store the next day. I would absolutely stay at this property again and again!
