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 Ft 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)

This is a wonderful place to stay and has awesome views of the gulf. It was very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Gulf Dunes 602. The owner, Ken, was very prompt when I inquired about the property and was very attentive to our needs, after we arrived. The condo is beautiful and well equipped with everything needed while on vacation. The beds were comfortable and all appliances, TVs, and furniture were up to date and easy to use. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone wanting a gorgeous view of the ocean while relaxing in a very comfortable condo. We loved having two king size beds. We always love staying on Okaloosa Island because it is quiet and everyone is very friendly. You can leave your beach supplies out without fear of theft. It is a great area for families. Many wonderful places to eat are close by.

The beach front was amazing! Located near fun restaurants and activities---- dolphins galore!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained and provided the space and comforts we desired for our vacation. The bunk bedroom, was too small for a young adult-- perhaps this should be mentioned.

Very nice condo. All new furnishings and appliances.

  • 4 of 5

If you stay there, go down to the beach early and reserve your umbrella and chairs by placing your towels on the back of the chairs. They start setting them out at 7:30 and they get snapped up quick.

Some updating but some out of date .

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location. Kent is very attentive and supportive.

The carpet in the bedrooms is narly as well as the sliding glass screens, patio furniture.

Those things could use updating.

Neighbors were friendly!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying. I do know about the carpet, In fact that is the last thing on the changeover that I have done. It is due to get done anytime. Not sure on the patio furniture. I just bought it all in January and it is all new? ill look into it. Screens...well I fix them ..they get torn up..fix again ..torn up. So I gave up and they are supposed to be taken out and thrown away. It is just not worth fixing each time and they do not last long.
