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 Fort Walton Beach

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)

Good for a family

  • 5 of 5

The three bedrooms were great for our family, and the full size laundry was super helpful. The big beds were really really comfortable and the view was awesome. The condo is clean but dated, the appliances are older but everything is clean. We enjoyed the pool and the chair service was awesome. This was our first time to the area and found it quiet and great for families.

Ready to head south again!

  • 4 of 5

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!

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!!!

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!
