About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)





NICEVILLE, FL (known locally to be the epicenter of paradise) at 201 College Blvd. East. Across the street from NORTHWEST FLORIDA STATE COLLEGE.

20 minutes from DESTIN OR FORT WALTON (and their sugar white beaches).

20 minutes from I-10 East.

20 minutes from I-10 West.

10 minutes from Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS).

15 minutes from Eglin Air Force Base.

30 minutes from Hurlburt Field.

If you're looking for something affordable that's loaded with ammenities, while visiting THE BEACHES, THE BASES, OR THE COLLEGE (NORTHWEST FLORIDA STATE COLLEGE), you couldn't ask for a more convenient place to call home.

Because we have been blessed with the WORLD CLASS SUGAR WHITE BEACHES AND EMERALD GREEN WATERS OF THE DESTIN/FORT WALTON AREA, there are loads of great restaurants and activities in all star levels and price ranges. Niceville isn't as well known, but it's worth the drive (even from the beach) to dine at many choices near the condo.

Northwest Florida State College (right across the street from College Park) offers an array of fine and performing arts at The Mattie Kelly Arts Center, and Gulf South Conference (NWFSC Raiders) sporting events at various other venues.

We have 5 places in VRBO, and we keep our calendars and rate schedules current, so if you don't find the dates you are looking for, you might check VRBO#'s 236359, 326434, 284832, and 243191.

What makes this condo unique

Niceville was rated the best town in Florida to raise children, and we very much agree. It's a wonderful little town with plenty of shopping and restaurants, and is a great base from which to enjoy all that Northwest Florida has to offer.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and had a fantastic time! The location is great, took us 15-20 minutes to get to Destin, 30-45 to reach Pensacola, and around an hour to get to Panama city. It was far enough from the beaches that we didn't have to deal with crowds of people, but close enough that it wasn't a problem going to the beach everyday. There was a Wal-Mart about a mile from the unit, so no matter what we needed or when, we had no issue getting supplies. Everything we needed was in the unit, and it's ground level so loading and unloading from the beach every day was super easy. The beaches were kind of crowded, but if you head to Pensacola, there is an old military base called Ft Pickens. It's $15 to enter per vehicle but that gives you 7 days of access. The beaches there are so peaceful, and my 6 year old found lots of shells and got to see some wild animals. We had an incredible time, would definitely recommend!

Quite Neighborhood, with easy access to town.

Had a great stay. This place was easy to find, with access to a pool. It is not an upscale place but worked perfectly for what we needed. All the amenities he stated are here. It was great to be able to wash laundry so i didn't go home with a ton of dirty laundry. Also the housekeeper is very sweet and lives in the same complex. I am looking forward to our next trip to Florida and i will be renting from him again.

We had a very enjoyable stay. Nice property. Clean and neat.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the property late in the afyernoon. The key pad entry is a plus so you don't have to search for keys or meet up with the owner. The property is in an "apartment" complex, so there was some limited noise like you would find in similar locations. It is located within easy access to shopping, restaurants, beaches....The pool was clean; lots of "accessories"-washer and dryer, coffee maker, dishwasher, linens...access included a picnic area near the unit.

We enjoyed the unit and property and would stay again.

Expectations met!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Cozy updated clean condo! Grocery stores are at reach when needed. Ground level condo and keyless made it convenient to load and unload when we headed to the beach. For anyone who loves outside cooking, my husband brought a Webber and threw some steaks on the grill (courtyard) for our last day, the neighbors were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this place!

Great Niceville Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Niceville Condo. It was clean, modern and a very comfortable stay. The location was great with conveniences such as Publix and Wal-Mart around the corner. We’re able to quickly get to Destin with the new by-pass with the Highway 285 exit ramp. The college was great to have nearby to enjoy the Mattie Kelly Arts Center across the street. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and were able to get on the Rocky Bayou Country Club golf course, what an easy treat within a couple miles. Some of the favorite places to dine were the French Quarter Grill, Tradewinds and the Boathouse Landing when time wasn't available to cook. When we did cook, having grocery stores and Willinghams Seafood market close by made a huge difference in our trip.

This was truly a great experience and would recommend others to stay. We’ll be back again next year for a visit. Thanks again!!
