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 Wire Hair Fox Terrier named Zoie, 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 three 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. In the morning you will have the local paper waiting at your front door for you to read while you're enjoying your coffee. We offer a 10% repeat guest discount and promise to make your stay with us as enjoyable as possible!

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
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?
