About Betty Smart

Married 51 years. Just retired . Life has been good.

Betty Smart purchased this condo in 2001

Why Betty Smart chose Ft Walton Beach

In 2001, not looking to buy anything, we were on vacation on our favorite beach here at Okaloosa Island. My husband happened to notice an ad in the paper for a condo that had a lot more space than the units we had stayed in before. So out of curiosity we went to look at it. Our small granddaughters were with us and it inspired us to look at it because it was large enough for our whole family. The rest as they say is history. We would not trade all of these family memories for anything. Having added 3 grandsons along the way has made it even better.

What makes this condo unique

The biggest benefit is feeling like this is home while we are here. We love coming down at other times like Thanksgiving with the whole family coming. It is just a great place to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I spent 8 nights here for our vacation. It was absolutely perfect. This condo was large and roomy, well furnished and decorated. Steps away from the pool and the beach. Will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: Jami, Thank you so much for your review. Happy you enjoyed the unit. We want you to feel at home. Because we can only have 7 story buildings on the island. We are populated with less people. We love that our beach has such easy and quick access and is less crowded. We will look forward to you returning.

Perfect location, plenty of room for 10, easy beach access, clean and well taken care of!

We absolutely loved staying here! There were 10 of us, so we had plenty of room with 4 bedrooms. The extra vanities were a plus with all my sisters! The condo was so clean, organized, and well decorated! The kitchen had everything we needed! Great view of the beach and easy access through the pool area! Close to elevators and laundry was a plus! Overall it was a great stay and would love to stay again! Betty was very helpful and answered all my questions in a timely manner! Thank you Betty for sharing your space with us!

This was our first time in Ft Walton. We rented this condo for our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) this condo was large enough to accommodate our needs. It was spacious, clean, nice decor and the 2 patios were great. Our weather even made it better with sunshine everyday.

I would like to give a kudos to the cleaning Lady. When we arrived for check in, the condo was not ready due to the condition it was left prior to us. The lady was so apologetic about the delay. Even though we didn’t get in until 5:30 it was worth the wait. I will say she put her heart and soul into cleaning this unit and it was worth the wait.

We will return.
