About Gary Mattis/Kim Bennett

Owning property in FL has always been a dream for us! As a child we use to vacation on the white sandy beaches and those were some of the best memories I have. Now I can be a part of helping others create memories that will last a lifetime!

Gary Mattis/Kim Bennett purchased this condo in 2003

Why Gary Mattis/Kim Bennett chose Fort Walton Beach

We've been coming to this area for over 30 years and we're finally lucky enough to find a unique property that we truly enjoy and hope you will too.

What makes this condo unique

Vista Del Mar is one place that has not yet been gobbled up by the corporate giants.Yes, sometimes small is better that big!

Nice ocean front.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is tastefully decorated and clean. While the property is oceanfront you cannot see the gulf from the unit due to a sand dune obstructing the view. There was an issue in the guest bedroom due to the unusually cold weather we were experiencing. The owners were nice to deal with.

It was great close to the beach and easy to find places

  • 4 of 5

Was clean and ready to go. Needs a little TLC. Patio chair broken, cover to outside electric was broken and the dishwasher door gets caught on the cabinet, had to figure out how to shut it.

Favorite place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Florida several times and stayed here twice. This is our favorite property to stay at when we go. Nice and quiet, convenient to several restaurants, and the proximity to the beach cannot be beat. Great place to stay!

Location, location...

  • 4 of 5

Four of us spent five nights at Vista Del Mar and had a wonderful time on the beautiful beach just outside the back door. This proximity to the beach makes up for an average 2 bedroom unit. We liked that it was in a smaller building and that it had everything we needed. If you are looking for luxury, you won't find it here, but it was clean and totally adequate for our needs.
