Studio Apartment, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3), no separate bedroom
Tired of staying at impersonal, expensive, noisy condos? Want to be treated more like family instead of just another renter? Our non-smoking unit is an unusual getaway for a couple (and maybe one small child). We live in the top two floors of a residential three story townhouse located directly on the Gulf of Mexico on Okaloosa Island and rent out our ground floor lock-out studio apartment from time to time.
Our unit is not for everyone. If you want to party until the wee hours of the morning, there are plenty of other units available. But if you don't mind being fairly quiet from 10:00 PM until 6:00 AM, don't mind a small schnauzer-yorkie mix dog named Lottie, and enjoy just kicking back with a margarita and a little Jimmy Buffett music, this should suit you fine.
Your dedicated parking place will be right in front of the building, just steps from the entrance. We have two bicycles for you to tour around the island, and you can borrow Dave's fishing gear to do a little surf fishing. Beach gear (chairs, towels, umbrella, boogie boards, fresbies, kids toys, etc.) is also provided. You will have a private deck with a bar, and an enclosed outside shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach (Yes, we have a full bath inside also).
Finish off the evening with a game of darts, chess, or a boardgame, or select a movie from our DVD collection.

About Dave or Ginny Davis
When we bought our town home in 1998 it was a real 'fixer upper'. Dave spent two years remodeling the two upper levels where we now live, and then decided to build a studio apartment in the rear of the garage. We always wanted to own a Bed and Breakfast and we feel that our unit is the next best thing to it. We wanted a unique rental where our guests would feel at home and more like family, not just another impersonal condo. Since we opened for business in March 2004 we have been blessed with almost continuous bookings from March through October. Many of our guests come back year after year and we will never forget who actually pays our bills.

Why Dave or Ginny Davis chose Ft Walton Beach
Okaloosa Island is a little 'hidden gem' on the Emerald Coast. Quiet, laid back, very little traffic and beautiful beaches. And our Beachbums Hideaway is right on the beach! What more could you ask for?

Perfect in every way imaginable
This place is the perfect place, for a couple who wants to escape everyday life! They provide everything you need, just bring your personal items. There is no stove/oven but honestly who wants to cook when there’s a beautiful beach right at your backdoor?! The Murphy bed was very comfortable! If I had to find a flaw, I guess it would be it’s takes a while for the hot water to heat up but that was no big deal for us! Thank you Dave & Ginny for everything. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning very soon!
This place is a Gem! A piece of paradise. Thanks for allowing me to stay. I hope to come back in the future.
Thanks so much for your kind words Kristie....we really appreciate you taking the time to post a review. We enjoyed having you as our guest. Please come back to see us when you can. Thanks again, Dave and Ginny
Great little place. Away from the spring break crowd. Opens right onto the beach. Sunrise, sunset and yes, we saw the Dolphins swim by.

Another awesome vacation thanks to Dave and Beachbums Hideaway!! Once again I hated to leave...the water was breathtaking...couldn't have asked for better weather and I'm already looking at making reservations for next year!! So happy that there is still a place that makes you feel at home when away from home and this place fits the bill....I have to add that the highlight of this vacation was seeing dolphins swimming right in front of us!! This place is perfect for a nice get-a-way for couples with the beautiful sunrises and sunsets...I could just go on and on...lol....Hope to see you next year Dave!!
Thanks for you lovely comments Susie. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us!
We stayed here in August and the beach was absolutely beautiful!! Every morning i woke up, I opened the blinds and it was the best view ever!! Dave was an excellent host to me, my daughter and son in law!! He has the best tips for dining and was so attentive to our needs....we will be back again ASAP!! What a quiet neighborhood too....no loud music and late night par tie here! What a refreshing change from the beaches I've been used to at Panama City...hahahahahaaa. Thanks again Dave & Ginny! hope to see you again soon!!
