About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Sunset Cottages at the beach - Best value in Fort Walton Beach.

*This is a beautiful beach-side condo complex with direct beach access. You will only need to walk 300 feet from the condo's boardwalk and your feet will be in the beautiful white sand of the beach.

This is a family friendly unit as Sunset Cottages is a private, cozy, peaceful, modern complex with only 19 units. Stay with your family at our personal family owned, home-like 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 was built new in 2000. The complex is very family friendly and is located 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 are located in the center of the complex with a new outdoor grill area right next to it.

CONVENIENCE... Our main balcony overlooks the pool. There is also a second separate balcony off the master bedroom for privacy and coffee in the morning. The units are surrounded by nice tropical landscaping. Walk down the quiet beach walkway that is right next to the units and go for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico. Come back and then 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.

UPSCALE DECOR & AMENITIES... Our condo can sleep six people. One private master bedroom with a king-size bed, separate private balcony, and separate private door to bathroom. One pullout queen sofa in the living room and two bunkbeds 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. New a/c unit was installed June 2012.

EVERYTHING YOUR FAMILY NEEDS... There is one full bath with two entrances, Wi-Fi, cable TV (two) one in living room and the other in master bedroom, DVD in living room, A/V jacks for play station, AM/FM/CD stereo, and lots of clean Florida beach breezes! The other balcony off the main room overlooks the pool. This is a great family value. You will LOVE the homelike accommodations, price, and all the convenience.

About Teri

We are so happy to be able to spend time at Sunset Cottages and to share the condo with guests.

Teri purchased this condo in 2012

Why Teri chose Fort Walton Beach

We chose Sunset Cottages because it is so close to Destin (5 miles), but without the hectic traffic of Destin.

What makes this condo unique

We love the fact that you can have your toes in the sand within minutes of walking out the door of our condo. Within 300 feet you can feel the sand between your toes and hear the sounds of the ocean. It is so serene!

Guestbook comments from the owner

There are no reviews because we just purchased the condo this month, and switched the VRBO site. Sadly, we lost all the awesome reviews for this unit.

We stayed at the unit this past week, and we are anxious to get back! We hope you will love it as much as we do.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Sunset cottages, we only stayed 4 days but sad to leave it so soon.It's a piece of paradise right off the beach, even though it didn't have an ocean view we could still hear the waves and a very short walk onto the beach with a beautiful pool to cool off wben needed. Teri had the unit decorated with a very beachy vibe, and had all the amenities you could possibly need. It was very clean and well stocked with movies and games for rainy days or a break from the sun. We are so looking forward to returning and hopefully a longer stay.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our month at the Sand dollar! It is an awesome condo-well equipped property with close proximity to the most beautiful beach in Florida! The owners were wonderful to deal with and went well above what might be expected to ensure we had a marvellous stay. We definitely plan to return!

Great condo! Close to beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 (3 adults, 3 kids) in our family and flew in to FWB. Loved being so close to just walk 2 minutes to the sand. Thanks for having a few sand toys and a couple of beach chairs in the condo for us to borrow. We bought a few groceries to take care of breakfast and some lunches at the condo. We had a wonderful time making great family memories.

Owner we're so kind to let us stay till safe enough to go home.

Very quite and you can b on beach in a 2 minute walk.

I stay in Ft.Walton Beach every year and will definitely stay here again
