About Kent Amos

I presently live in Mobile Al. I grew up in Destin and my family lives there still. It is one of the most beautiful places you have ever seen.

Kent Amos purchased this condo in 2001

Why Kent Amos chose Florida Main North West

When I was a teenager I was a lifeguard right on this is near and dear to me.

What makes this condo unique

This is a LARGE well maintained unit. Recently painted and ready for YOU!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My guests are not only great they are quite poetic. I sure love my guests and they seem to love me. They want the Gulf Dunes but other guests have it so I am moving them to my Terrace unit.......


My heart has sunk and hit the floor,

For I will have The Gulf no more,

The roar of the waves as they hit the shore

Will no longer drown out my husband's snore.

Alas, dear Kent, the choice must be

To move to Destin, near the sea,

"Til the end of March , we're hoping with glee

That The Terrace it is for Eddie and me.

With fingers crossed ( and love your loyalty to your previous guests)

We really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Dunes. Kent was great to work with and always received a timely response. Condo is a little dated, however it is clean, which was our #1 priority. View is breathtaking and the beach was clean. Loved having the parking space use and being by the heated pool. We would definitely stay again!

Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for a wonderful stay at your condo. Staying on the 6th floor with awesome views was great along with there being a key code on the door for easy access and you don't have to deal with a realty company or "keys"! Having a covered parking space out of the sun was a plus! The weather was perfect and the free beach set up every day was awesome! Kent was very helpful and was quick to respond to any questions that I had. This was the perfect get-a-way for me and my girls!! Thanks Kent and Roll Tide!

Okaloosa Island Oasis!!!

  • 5 of 5

I know I am a little late with this review...but better late then never because this condo and the owner are worth telling you about! First, Kent is the most wonderful person you could ever possibly dream of working with. Right off the bat at the end of our initial phone conversation I felt like he was an old friend. My inquiry about the condo left me with that warm & fuzzy comfort feeling that I was investing my week's vacation in the right direction. As soon as we walked into this spacious condo we felt at home. The decor was light, bright & CLEAN! Talk about clean, the condo was immaculate. This was extremely important to me because my 7 yr old granddaughter has health issues and I did not feel the need to clean! The bunk room was a big hit with my granddaughter. She loved having her own TV and a space to call her own. I never knew which bunk (upper or lower) I would find her in. I can honestly say all the mattresses were comfortable and the 5 of us slept well each night. That's a bonus after a rough day of sunning & swimming (lol). I couldn't say that about the beds in other previous locations I have rented in the past! The kitchen was well stocked and cooking & dish washing never seemed a chore per the phenomenal ocean view through the balcony sliding glass doors! Speaking of gorgeous...the large balcony was a fabulous place to watch all the beach action while not physically down on the sand...morning, noon or night I (we) were mesmerized by the turquoise water, the sugar white sand, and the birds & dolphins playing. We were thrilled to watch the extensive fireworks show right from the balcony one evening (and it wasn't even the 4th of July). The entire complex was a great family atmosphere of smiling faces, giggling children & memories in the making. The grounds & pool area were clean & well maintained. Loved the close covered parking space too. Thank you Kent for sharing your lovely home with us! We can't wait to return and we will return within the year!! In closing, great condo, great owner, great experience, great memories, great choice!

Best Vacation Rental experience ever

  • 5 of 5

Everything was so easy & hassle free, Kent is absolutely wonderful to work with. The condo was clean & roomy & the views were beautiful from the balcony. It was a huge plus for us that the AF Armament Museum was close by, we spent hours walking around there & really enjoyed it as well as the Gulfarium. It was our first time staying in that area & we were not disappointed, my only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! We will definitely be visiting again!

Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

Kent was very easy to talk to and answered every question promptly. The condo is very clean and that was important to us. The balcony is very large and it's easy for everyone to be out there at one time.

The condo is on the perfect floor to see the water and hear the ocean and I absolutely LOVED the parking spot as we could keep the sandy items in the bed of the truck and just grab them as we walked out. That was super convenient.

The beach setup was easy as you just go down and it's a "first-come first-serve" type of deal. If you want a particular spot, just be the first one there and sit in it. The guys will come by later and ask your room. Very easy. When at the beach, it's all about the location and this place is in a great location. You can walk to the Boardwalk and eat at a variety of establishments right on the beach.

Kent helped us with some questions about snorkeling and his knowledge of the water and the tides were very helpful.
