About John & Linda Doyle

We are semi-retired and have been vacationing on Okaloosa Island and the Emerald Isle Complex for a number of years now. We live in Oak Ridge, TN where we raised our family of three children. We love the water and have vacationed for years at both Pawley's Island, SC and here in FWB. We are very happy with our decision to purchase our Condo here on Okaloosa Island.

John & Linda Doyle purchased this condo in 2009

Why John & Linda Doyle chose Florida Main North West

We have been visiting this Condominium Complex for a number of years and fell in love with both the location and the FWB area. We found this unit was available in 2009 and proceeded to purchase it. We have not been disappointed, it is a wonderful , place for vacations.

What makes this condo unique

The Condo is a top floor unit with breathtaking gulf views from the living room,dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. The Santa Rosa Sound, an inter-coastal waterway is viewed from both the kitchen and guest bedroom windows. The white sandy beach and turquoise waters of the Gulf along with brilliant skies make for a perfect vacation home for us. We have completely refurbished and refurnished the unit which complements the location and views. We think you too will fall in love with our Condo during your vacation stay.

This condo was perfect, it was clean and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun. Loved it we felt at home. There was 4 adults and 2 four year olds. We did not feel like we was on top of each other at all. We loved that each family had there own bathroom and bedroom. Also the bedrooms were not right next to each other so we felt like we had our privacy when we wanted it.

Great family

We had a wonderful stay here. It was very clean and roomy. We spent a few days on the beach in front of the condo and a couple in Destin which is only 15 min away. Great place to stay!

Cute condo with all the amenities you need to forget about life for a while!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the condo at Emerald Isle! We stayed with our 3 kids age 2.5, 7 & 10. They loved having a tv in the second bedroom for cartoons when Mom and dad watched news. The views from the balcony and master bedroom were phenomenal. The pool deck was well maintained, as were the bathrooms down by the boardwalk. We really loved the beach service and the fact that there were constant lifeguards checking the water. The condo was clean and well equipped. I would request a few more cooking utensils, but other than that we found everything we needed. The bathrooms were nice and plenty of hot water for us after the beach. The condo is close to town and plenty of restaurants if you encounter a rainy day. The info has wifi and cable which was important as we got a tropical depression during our visit. Overall we loved our stay, so much so Linda had to literally kick us out, as I forgot what day it was. Hilarious!! But we had the time of our lives and lost track of time. We forgot a few items in the rush out and Linda arranged for them to be shipped home. I highly recommend staying here. We will be back next year! Thanks for everything!

Bedbug Disaster

  • 3 of 5

I want to preface my review by saying the condo was very nice and the owners were top notch and had no control over the situation that occured to us.

We stayed for two weeks and were thoroughly enjoying ourselves and the condo until about day 8. This is when my wife noticed she started getting what looked like welts on her arms and legs. We thought it was an allergic reaction to food until I started getting similar welts on my body. After some research we realized there must be bed bugs present. Bites begin to appear on the body approximately 7-10 days after being bitten by them. I then began to see them in the bed. Unfortunately, it was a very large infestation in the master bedroom. Fortunately, they were not found anywhere else in the condo. We had to sleep on the fold out couch for the rest of the trip. We also had our 6 month old son with us in the room in a pak-n-play which also started showing signs of having the bed bugs on it. We had to move him into the kitchen for the rest of the trip. What we did not know is that his pak-n-play still had bed bugs on it when we traveled home. We were given tips on how to get rid of the bed bugs by leaving our suitcases, etc in our car and let the car heat up in the sun to kill off the bed bugs. This, however, did not work and we ended up bringing the bugs into the house as we have now found multiple bed bugs in the pak-n-play over the last few weeks. We are now forced to take more serious measures to make sure we don't get a severe infestation in our own house. Needless to say, when you encounter bed bugs during a vacation it becomes a very miserable experience and really turned a good trip into a wearisome trip as we were all itching constantly from all the bites on us.

While the condo was nice, the fear of going back to a place that had bed bugs makes us think twice about staying at this condo again. Many people we talked to said we should ask for our money back but I am not the kind of person to do that and leave that up to the owners to make that decision on their own. If they feel they should compensate us for the troubles, that would be up to them.

We reported this to the owners as soon as we confirmed that there were bed bugs and they got an exterminator in to do an inspection to verify the day before we left. Unfortunately, for us, it was a little too late as we were on our last day.
