No Roads to Cross! Just Walk Down the Path to the Beach!

FAMILY-OWNED... We named our condo 'The Yellow Umbrellow' to honor our family beach house. We grew up going to the beach and we want our daughters to have the same experience... the tranquil gulf water, beautiful sun, fresh seafood, family and lots of friends!!

SUNSET COTTAGES... PRIVATE and PEACEFUL - COMPLEX WITH ONLY 19 UNITS! Stay with your family at our personal family-owned Beach Retreat... Ultra-convenient beach condo on the Gulf side with a short walkway that is only steps to the beach... right next to the units. No driving and parking to get to the beach... You are there!

PROFESSIONAL UPGRADES & ACCOMMODATIONS... The small, newer complex with only nineteen (19) units was built new in 2000. Our theme is shabby-chic-beach. The complex is very family friendly on the quieter end of Okaloosa Island. Golfing, water parks, jet-ski, charter fishing, shopping, and lots of fresh seafood are only minutes away. The quiet pool and sun deck area is located in the center of the complex with an outdoor grill available.

CONVENIENCE... Just a few hours' drive from most Southern states, our main balcony overlooks the Gulf of Mexico! There is also a second separate balcony too off the master bedroom for privacy and coffee in the morning that overlooks the pool! You can keep an eye on the kids from here ;-) The units are surrounded by nice tropical landscaping. Walk down the beach walkway with boardwalk that is right next to the units and go for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico. Come back and cool off in the pool afterward. Stress relief and family fun is what this place is all about! Relax, you have come to the right place, now get ready for fun.

BEACHY DECOR & AMENITIES... Our condo can sleep six people. One private master bedroom with a queen-size bed, separate private balcony, and separate private door to bathroom. One pullout queen sofa in the living room and two bunk-beds located off the hallway and out of the way, great for the kids and private for the parents! The condo has a full-size kitchen...dishes, cookware, utensils, toaster, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher, all linens, and towels.

EVERYTHING YOUR FAMILY NEEDS... There is one full bath with two entrances, cable TV (two) one in living room and other in master bedroom, DVD in living room, A/V jacks for playstation/wii, AM/FM/CD stereo, and lots of clean Florida beach breezes! The balcony off the main room overlooks the Gulf of Mexico! This is a GREAT FAMILY VALUE! You will LOVE the home-like accommodations, price, and ALL the convenience.

LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR VACATION... Angie, Elizabeth and Rick, OWNERS. (SUNSET COTTAGES)

About Angie Rose, Rental Manager and Beach Lover

We are sisters (and their husbands) from Atlanta, Georgia who purchased this condo for family vacations and would love to share it with you when we are not there!!

Angie Rose, Rental Manager and Beach Lover purchased this condo in 2009

Why Angie Rose, Rental Manager and Beach Lover chose Fort Walton Beach

This is, with out a doubt, the best beach area in Florida. The sand is like sugar, never burn your feet and the water is a beautiful emerald green. It's a short drive to Destin or Ft. Walton.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is located on the second floor which gives you a great view of the Gulf of Mexico. The condo not only has a balcony that looks out into the ocean, but also has a second that overlooks the pool. It was renovated in 2010 with new paint and floors throughout! We have cable TV in the living room and bedroom, and high speed wireless internet access with WPA security. You don't want to... but you can work from the beach! It's a short drive over the bridge to the Publix grocery store and there is a convenience store, with food and ICE, less than a half mile from HOME! Restaurants are close by on Okaloosa or nearby in Ft. Walton and Destin.

Great location to beach and pool. View of the beautiful ocean. Cutely and stylishly decorated. More than equipped with everything that we needed during our short 3 day stay. Angie was a dream to work with. The only thing that I would improve was to add a taller rail of some sort to the upper hallway bunk. I was afraid to allow my 9 year old to sleep there in case he would take a roll. We'll definitely be back if they'll have us!!

Decent Place with Noise Problem

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was just as pictured. It was fairly nice for the price and perfect size for my husband and myself. The walk to the beach is quick and easy and the chair service is nice; however, the chairs are pretty ratty, a lot of them were broken and the first set we were directed to, one of them had blood on the arm :/ The beach area is nice and clean and we enjoyed our afternoons there. The area the apartment is located in isn't great, really touristy yet a little run-down as well, food choices weren't that great. We headed out of the area to get better choices. Destin and Rosemary in particular.

We were looking for a quiet getaway prior to having a baby - needless to say I was eight months preggo and wasn't sleeping well to begin with; however, the apartment does not have any sort of noise barrier what so ever. The renters above us were extremely loud at all hours of the night. Some of the time you could tell they were just walking around, but you could hear EVERYTHING! I believe they had kiddos with them as well and the kids would run back and forth, back and forth. They must have had bunk beds also that the kids were jumping on and off at all hours of the night. So, the first night we literally got no sleep after trying to bang on the ceiling with no luck. The second and third nights we resorted to ear plugs and pillows over or heads. We were happy to see them leaving on what should have been our 4th night there (Saturday); however, it was quickly after a cleaning crew must have come in and were banging around all afternoon after we got back from the beach and trying to get a nap in since we hadn't been sleeping well. Shortly after a new family arrived and it was clear we wouldn't be getting any sleep that night either. So, unfortunately we packed up late that afternoon and headed back home to GA a day early.

I would really like to give this place a better rating; however, the noise and area of the apartment was really unappealing. The apartment itself is very clean, well kept, and an easy walk to the beach. Unfortunately we will not be returning to this rental.

Ahhhhh....Dreaming of our next visit!!!

  • 5 of 5

STOP LOOKING! The Yellow Umbrellow will not disappoint! I only hate to write this because I don't want it to be booked on our return visit which can't come soon enough! Angie was the nicest person ever to work with on our spur of the moment vacation! I felt like we would be great friends if we lived in the same town! Thank you, Angie, for your southern charm and hospitality! I know we would have fun hanging on the beach together, but then we couldn't rent the Yellow Umbrellow! We were blessed to have found your condo and are grateful to you for opening up your beach haven for others to enjoy! What a cheerful beach getaway from the minute you enter the condo! Happy, bright colors and beach decor will keep your spirits lifted (but how can anyone be sad at the beach?)! Pretty views too from the den and kitchen windows and balcony! Loved being able to see the ocean in the distance as well as the walkway to the beach down the boardwalk. Furniture and beds were in top notch condition with such a comfy master king bed and soft linens! There are plenty of drawers for storage and a multitude of hooks around the condo for hanging towels, wet swimsuits, hats, bags, etc. Thank you for the hooks and clothes hangers in the closet and storage baskets under the bunk beds for our daughter's belongings! Seriously, there wasn't anything we needed that we didn't find in the condo except for a couple of boogie boards to ride the beautiful, large waves we had on our last day! Alvin's Island is just a quick jaunt down the road and has all of your beach needs should you need something! You'll find all your grocery needs at the Publix grocery store which is just a quick drive into town too! It is so nice to not have to fight the traffic nightmare down the road in Destin! This condo location is the best! The super short walk to the sand was not an issue at all so don't let this worry you the slightest! If you stay in one of those high rise buildings, your walk would be farther! The pool was never crowded and the outdoor shower by the pool was super to have to rinse off after returning from the beach. It is difficult to beat the peace and quiet of Fort Walton Beach! That is why we will return soon to the Yellow Umbrellow! We have found a relaxing beach escape to rent from wonderful people! So grateful for everything! Looking forward to mellowing again at the Yellow Umbrellow real soon!!!

We had a wonderful, peaceful stay. The condo was decorated so cute. Had a great view of the ocean from one of the two balconys. It was clean and the pictures were very accurate. I would stay here again and recommend this property. Any question I had the owners would answer it quickly.
