About owner/property manager

We are a family of 4 that loves the beach.

owner/property manager purchased this condo in 2011

Why owner/property manager chose Florida Main North West

We began visiting Okaloosa Island in 2009 and fell in love with the beautiful beaches. We loved that Okaloosa Island did not have the hustle and bustle of other beaches, but is close enough to Destin if you choose to go to the outlets, waterparks, or want more dining options. Once you visit, you won't want to go anywhere else!

What makes this condo unique

There is a covered, reserved parking space. So, you will never have to worry about finding a parking spot, and your car will stay protected from the sun and rain.

We loved our view, condo, and all of the extra amenities during our stay at Island Princess! The owners were amazing and cordial in every aspect. We could not have asked for anything more! A must return to destination.

Perfect setup!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is very well equipped, clean and very comfortable bed. View is amazing, you can see miles into the gulf from the balcony. We went on a holiday week which we would normally never do but travel partners dont know how to use a calendar and we were committed. It will be busy during those times. Beach access is great and chairs/umbrella are set up for you every day!! This property is away from the congestion of Destin proper which is exactly what we wanted.

Beautiful condo with an awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo! Very clean and comfortable. The owners were very thoughtful by leaving laundry soap, hand soap etc. Not really thrilled with Okaloosa Island. We usually vacation in the Miramar Beach area. Better scenery, shops and restaurants. Overall we had a great week. Destin is a very short drive away!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Okaloosa Island is a quieter area with few shops on the Island. However, they are only a short drive away.

Everything was wonderful. It was a comfortable and home feeling when you walk in. The views were breathtaking. The owners were timely when approving our stay and when I contacted them in the middle of the stay. I stayed there with my wife and 3 kids who's ages range from 6-15. None of my kids wanted to leave and everyone wants to return next year.

Great place to stay. Spring break with the kids.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. The pictures of the property are great but the condo is even better in person. Our kids said it felt like home. The beds are very comfortable, memory foam tempur-pedic style mattresses (even on the bunk beds). Keyless entry was great (no risk of losing your key at the beach). Beach service was wonderful. Jacob one of the guys who set up the chairs was very helpful. He helped with recommendations on local restaurants. Scott and Kristi were very responsive answered any questions we had. Also very quick to return safety deposit. All the amenities of home. Great view - we saw dolphins from the balcony. Property was very clean. Nice pool and hot tub. Boogie boards available for the kids. Overall great experience. We will be coming back to this property.

An Enjoyable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Island Princess #708 for 6 weeks this winter and had a wonderful time. The condo is very nice and clean, in a great location and very quiet even though it is close to the elevator. The views from the balcony are amazing. It was a pleasure working with Scott and Kristi. We appreciated how promptly they responded to any questions or concerns we had. We really like the Okaloosa/Destin area. We look forward to our return stay in the winter of 2018.
