About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Escape to the beach and enjoy vacationing in our condo along the Emerald Coast of Florida. We’re located at the West end of Okaloosa Island in Ft. Walton Beach. Vista Del Mar is close to miles of undeveloped natural beach. Our vacation rental has an incredible location and a breathtaking view plus it is well maintained and nicely furnished. You can almost 'reach out and touch the water.' We are on the second floor and an end unit. It does make a big difference in your view!!!! Visitors love the simplicity of a smaller complex. Mornings are enjoyable having coffee from the deck while watching the dolphins swim by. You can relax in the evenings while feeling the gulf breeze and seeing the magnificent sunset.

Near by Attractions Include:

Ft. Walton…
Main Street in Ft. Walton Beach offers unique shopping and dining along the main strip of Ft. Walton. You will find Coca-cola memorabilia, adorable children’s clothes, souvenirs to take back home and more. Check out the bistro on the corner, their food is wonderful.

The Gulfarium is a great way to spend part of your day. The dolphin shows are almost continuous and you can also visit all sorts of marine life such as seals, sea lions, sharks, alligators, penguins and more.

One of my favorite things to do is going para sailing. Okaloosa Island offers this service for the area. The views are wonderful and the ride is exhilarating.

Visit the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier. The Pier is 1262 Ft. long and has an octagon at the end so everyone has plenty of room to fish. If you are not in to fishing you can enjoy wonderful sunsets at the pier and also get a chance to see dolphins. If you didn’t bring your rod & reel, don’t worry, you may rent on there.

For night entertainment, the Howl at the Moon is a favorite piano bar. Great fun with great talent!

On the island the Old Bay Steamer is a favorite. The original Fudpuckers Bar & Grill is also a favorite for visitors & locals alike. For the best pizza head over to Helen Back. Los Panchos Mexican Restaurant has take out for those long days on the beach. Pandora’s Steakhouse offers steak, Seafood & prime rib.

Destin…
Once you leave the island you are only a few miles away from Destin, Florida. Great seafood restaurants and entertainment can be enjoyed.

Shop till you drop at The Silver Sands Outlet mall. They house over 100 stores. When you are ready for lunch go to the Cheeseburger in Paradise and for dinner at the close of your day head to Carrabba’s Italian Grill.

Great Shopping, dining & entertainment can be found at the Destin Commons. Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort offers wonderful dining and specialty stores.
Big Kahuna’s Water Park is a favorite for the entire family. Destin, Florida is known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.
