Guestbook comments from the owner

We "the Owners" personally deep cleaned this unit the last week of October 2015.

The floors/ baseboards were thoroughly vacuumed/ cleaned; the floors were also mopped and steam cleaned; oven/ stove cleaned; washed/ dried all blankets/ comforters. The linens (towels, bed linens) were replenished.

We also installed new crown mold in the living area; new lights were installed over the bar area; touched up wall areas with paint.

This condo is very clean and ready for our renters.... "Come Be our Guests"!

Love the Beach!!

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of four (two small children) and we were looking for a nice beach with a short drive to Destin. We loved the location of this condo, as it was in a low traffic area (could also be because we traveled in October) and the beach was so relaxing. Enjoyed having access to chairs/umbrella and spent lots of time with the kids on the beach. Definitely loved the ocean view!! Pool was a bit too chilly but still managed to use it. The condo itself definitely has signs of wear...some areas that could be repainted and the white veneer peeling off some of the cabinets in the bathroom/kitchen. Bedding/decor was a bit outdated. Enjoyed having a full kitchen for many of our meals. Overall it was comfortable and had plenty of room for us and we had a nice time. The one major complaint that we would share is that this unit has no deadbolt or chain of any kind on the inside. Our not-quite-two year old daughter was able to let herself out twice and that was frightening!!! We immediately contacted the owner to see if they would be willing to have maintenance install something for us, but they said no and suggested we use a kitchen chair or heavy suitcase to block the door. That was very disappointing, as the cost and time to put in a proper lock on the inside would have been minimal. So if you have small children, please be warned that this unit is very easy for the smallest of children to get outside by themselves...a terrifying thought for parents!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are happy you enjoyed your stay in our beach front condo. We have just painted and refinished the kitchen and bathroom cabinets and installed new hardware. The condo was also deep cleaned including waxing the tile floors. Our condo has a kaba door lock system so each renter is assigned their very own secure door code to enter the condo. This is the first time we've had a renter mention a problem with their child getting out of the condo on their own. We do understand a parents anxiety with keeping up with a small child so we have now installed an interior security lock on the door to prevent problems for our future guest. Please come be our guest...stay, and enjoy our beach front condo.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation to Ft. Walton. This condo was very nice and had a great view. We love staying in Ft. Walton, because it is a little more secluded than Destin and out of traffic, but close to everything. Definitely consider this condo for your next vacation. We are planning on renting it every year for our vacation.

Overall, an enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the week of 6/4--6/11. Overall, we enjoyed our stay a great deal. The unit is wonderful--quite spacious, clean, modern-looking, and well-equipped. The balcony is the widest we have seen and is great for morning coffee and watching the dolphins swim by. The pool is nice size and was never too crowded to enjoy. The beach is the cleanest we have seen and very well-maintained. The beach service couldn't have been any better--just walk down and grab a couple of chairs. We also never had to wait too long for an elevator, and finding a parking spot was never a problem.

The only problem we had was on Wednesday and Thursday late afternoon when a group of ten to twenty guys and girls took over one end of the pool. They were quite rowdy: drinking in the pool, smoking in the pool, using profanities, and throwing beer cans at each other in and out of the pool. They stayed each night until the pool closed at ten. They definitely kept us out of the pool, and we believe many families with children probably stayed away also. They did ruin sitting on the balcony listening to the sounds of the waves at night for us. They were there Friday afternoon late but did not stay long. We felt the condominium security should have asked them to be a little less obnoxious. However, we never saw any security. This is not the Perkins' fault, though. Just to make it clear, we are not opposed to drinking, smoking, or profanity, but this group was a bit too much.

Overall, we would recommend this as a fine vacation spot.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay in our condo and hope you will return again! I regret that the actions of an unusually loud and apparently rude group spoiled some of your time in the pool area. The pool area is spacious enough for many people and is normally quiet, especially at night. So sorry. I hope you return again next time you vacation in this area. Thank you.
