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

Loved our stay at this condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo offered exactly what we needed. It was in a great location and right on the beach. We loved the white beach and clear water and will definitely be back sometime in the future. 5 adults and 5 kids this place handled us great! Thanks!

What a great place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 and the place was cozy enough to encourage family time, but still allowed for space apart. The beach was literally in front of he building and the Pool was perfect. I look forward to staying here again. Betty answered the many questions I had and sent someone to come by and drop off some items that we needed.

FT. WALTON BEACH STAY 3/10/18 THRU 3/17/18

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great! We had 8 adults & 2 kids in our group, the 4 bedrooms accommodated us well, have to admit the bedroom with the bunk beds (for the kids) would be a bit more comfortable with a queen size bed (for parents) instead of a full. The kitchen area was very functional and had everything that we needed, all appliances were in excellent condition! Having 2 bathrooms plus 2 more sinks/vanitys was very handy! Nice pool area and easy access to beach. We had assumed that the grills near the pool area would be gas...obviously they are charcoal....might want to clarify that in the available amenities listing. Great location in regards to entertainment, excursions, resturants, shopping etc..

We had a great stay and highly recommend this property!

Nice Condo, quiet, family oriented

  • 4 of 5

Our trip to the beach was great! They unit was the perfect size to accommodate all of us. Hassle free check-in/out! The walk to beach was short and easy, not the crowds we were used to on holiday weekend which was awesome! Hassle free elevator rides (no long lines or waits)! Everyone super friendly, great family environment. The only negative for us was the reserved parking was a very tight space for our large SUV, so we parked in guest parking, however, for smaller vehicles it would be fine. We will definitely be back again.
