About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Welcome to your ideal vacation home! This 3 bdrm 2 bath condo is located at the Summer Place, one of Okalossa Islands newest and finest properties. There is nothing else like it on the island. With 2 large pools (one heated) and just 53 units there will never be a crowd around the pools or on the beach.

Families love our 1st floor unit -- just walk directly out to the pool or beach with no stairs or elevators required!! Little ones can play on our large beachfront fenced patio while their parents relax and enjoy the ocean view. Make breakfast in our beautiful and well stocked kitchen as watch dolphin jump in the emerald green waters of the Gulf.

The living area, dining area, kitchen and master bdrm all have great ocean views. We have 2 bdms with king beds and a 3rd bdrm with 2 twins and room for an aerobed which we will supply.

We have new flat screen tvs in all the bedrooms with HDTV in the living room. We also have a stereo and iPod docking station.

This family friendly unit has a pack and play, high chair, booster seat, stroller, safety rails for the lower bunk, and a baby monitor so that you can sit in the sun and listen for your little one during nap time. We also have puzzles, games, and a small video library for adults and kids. Our deck box is full of pool and beach and water toys for the kids to enjoy!

The Summer Place has a huge pool deck with 2 large pools and a jacuzzi complete with a little waterfall. The pool area overlooks the sugar white sand of Florida's most beautiful beaches. Because of the zoning controls on Okalossa Island (no building over 7 stories) we have all the beauty of the Destin beaches with none of the crowds -- to say nothing of the traffic! We pay for beach service -- 2 beach umbrellas and 4 chairs -- and provide a cooler for snacks on the beach. The Summer Place also has a beachfront BBQ/picnic area and a fully equipped exercise facility with a view of the Gulf.

Our unit features 9 ft ceilings, 18' ceramic tile throughout, maple cabinets with granite countertops, cultured marble tubs and surrounds as well as marble vanity tops. We have a large laundry room with side by side washer/dryer. Each bedroom has a tv/dvd and the living room has a 32' flatscreen HDTV with dvd. A local artist made certain the kids' room would be a favorite with playful dolphins, fish and seahorses swimming on the blue walls.

We hope enjoy our place as much as we do and that you'll want to come back again and again.

About Kim Johnson

Our family of five loves to travel and enjoys our time on the beach. We enjoy finding ''out of the way'' places that don't attract huge crowds so Okalossa Island was love at first site. The zoning controls prevent high rise buildings on the island so we never have masses of people on the beach as in Panama City or Destin. Ft Walton offers us everything we need but Destin is a beautiful 6 mile drive if we feel the need for more activity.

Kim Johnson purchased this condo in 2003

Why Kim Johnson chose Florida Main North West

My family and I feel in love with Okalossa Island in 1999 and looked for some time for the perfect place to vacation there. When we saw the plans for Summer Place, we knew we'd found it. The pools are wonderful, the pool deck is large and relaxing, the landscaping is lovely, and the unit interiors are beautifully done. We bought the unit in the preconstruction phase so that we were able to finish it as we wanted. We put a lot of time and effort into creating the ideal family friendly unit. We love the condo and enjoy having others feel the same about it.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite feature of our condo is it's location. We love being on the first floor so that we can just walk directly out to the pool and beach without using the stairs or elevators. We can make lunch in the kitchen and watch dolphin jumping in the Gulf or the sun setting above the water.

Everything is great about this condo! The ground floor location is perfect...especially with kids. The condo has everything you could possibly need for a week (or two) on the beach. Everything was clean and well taken care of. The beach is beautiful and the view from your beach chair is breathtaking. We have been to Summer Place for the last 3 years and we'll definitely be back again! Kim is wonderful as well!

This was my second time to stay in this condo and I would absolutely stay there again. The unit itself is decorated just right, it is very clean and has everything you could expect. The ground floor location makes it so easy to walk to pool or beach, and easy to deal with luggage, etc. Kim, the owner, is a delight to work with. Don't hesitate to book it.

We stayed at Summer Place the week of Spring Break. The owner of this unit, Kim, was fantastic to work with. The condo itself was impeccable. There was plenty of room for the four of us and the location on the first floor right by the pools and hot tub made for a very relaxing vacation. The beach had soft, gorgeous white sand, and the gulf of mexico was very close to the condo. I would HIGHLY recommend renting at Summer Place from Kim. Looking forward to our next trip!

This condo was perfect! You couldn't ask for a better location...right on the pool deck!! I am a very particular traveler, and I was 100% pleased. Smaller complex, right on the beach. I loved that you could always get a chair at the pool, unlike many other places. The double beach set up of chairs and umbrellas was a real plus as well. Decor of the condo was bright and "beachy" and immaculate. You will not be disappointed in this one!!

This condo is fabulous! My family (5 of us) stayed a week here and we were totally pleased with the accommodations and the location. This place is clean, spacious, attractive, and on the ground floor. The beds were very comfortable; well stocked kitchen; flat screen tv's and everything we needed. We could walk right out onto the pool deck area. The Beach is a short walk on the bridge over the sand dune. There are many restaurants, shops, and activities nearby. We loved that the building was a smaller complex. The grounds are well maintained and the staff was friendly. This is a perfect condo and beach area for a family to vacation at.

Cross the island to see the Choctawhatchee Bay! The water is warm and shallow with no currents so it's a great place for kids to explore. Try out kite surfing while you're there!
