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.

We are located on the second floor of the condo complex at 2001 Devmor Court in Fort Walton Beach, FL


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 Florida Main North West

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.

Love how you are so close to the beach, also loved having a pool that is only available for the people staying in the group of condos. Had a lot of fun. Can't wait til we can go and stay another time soon. Thanks

Owner's Response: We are sad to hear that you had an issue. In our rental agreement we ask guests to confirm that there are 6 washcloths. Our cleaning crew said the additional washcloths were under the sink. Why we ask for you to confirm the amount of linens is to make sure guests have exactly what they need. You should not have to go buy linens on your vacation. If you would have notified us, we would have fixed that issue right away by letting you know where the linens were located. As for the door, the HOA just installed a new front door. They must have not done it perfectly. We will ask them to repair it. We wish we would have known during your visit, as we would have had it fixed. We don't want anyone to not have a great time. In the future if you rent through VRBO, please give the owners an opportunity to correct anything that is not up to your standards while you are on vacation. Learning this after the fact does not allow any VRBO owners a chance to correct the issues.

Good place to stay but no its not beach facing

  • 3 of 5

Lets start with the positives:

House was very clean, and had almost a full kitchen if you want to cook

Owners reply real quick to all your queries

Very close to a very neat and clean beach ... very less crowded

Can easily accommodate 6 people... but comfort will be a different story

Lot many movies and games to keep adults and kids entertained

What we didn't like:

Too many Instructions- Everywhere

We thought it to have a beach view- Its close to the beach, but no it is not beach facing/ beach view

Shower Gel was not available, though Shampoo and conditioner were- Please keep(Shower Gel) with you or you need to run to a close by store to fetch one

Don't pay by Credit Card as there is a charge of 3% on the refund

Overall a good place to stay its quiet, clean, close to the beach with all the modern amenities- BUT no IT is NOT BEach FAcing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for kind comments. I know our cleaning crew appreciates your kind words about the cleanliness of our condo. They do an awesome job! The description in our listing does not state beach front, but we are super close and don't cross any streets to get to the beach. The walk to the beach is between 1 and 2 minutes. Beach-front condos are much more expensive than our condo. Ours is super close, but much more economical. Shower gel is not provided. Out of the hundreds of guests that have stayed at our place, no one has ever mentioned a need for shower gel. There is a convenience store on the same block as the condo for any last-minute needs. As far as comfort, there are two twin mattresses (not the typical foam in many beach condos) but real mattresses and a very comfortable king mattress. The sleeper sofa is as comfortable as sleeper sofas get. The three percent is a fee given by VRBO. That fee is stated on our listing. We clearly state that using credit has a 3% fee, and have encouraged electronic or paper checks. We hope you had a great time.
