About Hal Hildreth or Patty Hildreth

We are both emergency room RN's. We came to Fort Walton beach for a birthday getaway in 2001. We were so impressed with the Island, we bought a condo.

Hal Hildreth or Patty Hildreth purchased this condo in 2001

Why Hal Hildreth or Patty Hildreth chose Florida Main North West

We chose this location because the view from the balcony and the pristine beaches can't be beat. And nothing is better than vacationing with our 8 Grandchildren.

What makes this condo unique

Two of our favorite things to do are relaxing on the beach and Fishing Charters.

My friends and I stayed at the condo for a few days and had a great time! The condo is in such a great location. It's both a close short driving distance to restaurants, attractions, and grocery stores and on the beach. One of the best things about the property was there was a bathroom downstairs so when you are at the beach or pool a bathroom is right there. The pool was also heated! The condo was clean and we didn't feel cramped at all with 5 people. The owners are so kind and I will definitely be staying here next time I'm in the area!

Property 5 Star, Tropical Storm Cindy 1 Star.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this unit. Island Echos is our favorite condo on the beach. The condo is well maintained and shows pride of ownership. Hal and Patty are super easy to work with. Too bad Mother Nature is not as accommodating. Tropical Storm Cindy blew in and brought rain, high winds, and high tides. Unfortunately, it was a double red flag week, so no boogie boarding in the gulf this year. Thank you for the puzzles that were in the unit to keep us occupied. We also visited the Air Force Armory Museum on one of the rainy days. Great museum, and its free! Til next year.... Thank you!

Beautiful view, nice owners, great location

  • 5 of 5

We found this place last minute. I sent a request about 10:00 at night not expecting a response till morning. But immediately heard back and had the contract signed within probably an hour or so. Easy transaction to book it.

It is a beautifully decorated condo. You have a wonderful view once you walk in. It's on the 5th floor. We didn't use the pool but it seemed great to those that did. Easy access to pool, beach, vending machine, etc. The condo supplies a roll for each bathroom. We forgot to buy some but it's only about .97 at Publix. There are pans and utensils. Just bring your food, spices laundry detergent.

The kids loved the room. Had separate beds but loved being together. Master bed very comfy.

If you have the back door open and the front door IT WILL slam shut. We noticed when we first arrived damage to dead bolt area. I took a picture and after clarifying it with my husband that it was there when he first walked through I texted the owner to let him know. He responded right away. I didn't see the text so shortly after he called to make sure the door was still secure for us. Also noticed there was damage to counter, like someone used it as a cutting board (they have one). Owner was very nice about recieving feedback. I offered to pay for anything that might have happened while we were there.

The condo is close to Alvins, the bridge to Destin, Publix, Walmart and of course the BEACH!!!!!

We accidentally messed up and had booked our stay a day shorter than we planned. So on the last day housekeeping came to the door. My husband told her that we were booked another day. I immediately looked at my reservations and realized the mistake. My husband called the owner and explained we had a misunderstanding and would be out within the hour. I texted the housekeeper once we left. Then emailed him when we got home to apologize. The owners were very understanding. I would definitely suggest this place to people. If we go back I would love to stay here.

Excellent beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

We are very impressed. We loved the location and view of the beach and waterfront. It was everything we had hoped for when planning our trip. The convenient access to area attractions and dining is a definite plus. The size of the condo allowed room to move for our group of four.

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great location to spend a vacation. The condo is well maintained and the laundry facilities in the unit a plus. Tennis and shuffleboard courts kept us busy when we weren't spending time in the pool or on the beach (another plus is the included beach service!) And the oceanfront balcony is a fabulous place for dolphin spotting. We hope to return and enjoy this condo again!
