About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This secluded studio condo is located directly on the beaches of Okaloosa Island.

The property is on the ground floor with the gulf only a few steps away from your back door. The view from the back windows is hindered by our sand dunes that protect the property from storms. However, the wooded boardwalk takes you right over them and onto our sandy beach.

Keywords: Condo, Island, Romantic getaway, Florida, Emerald Coast, White sand, Destin area, Private.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this place!!!! It was the perfect size for just us. The location can't be beat. We love staying in Fort Walton, this will definitely be the place at the top of our list for return visits and recommendations. Eileen was always available when needed. Couldn't ask for a better person to deal with. This place is highly recommended by us, we will be returning soon :)

Clean, nice, private.

  • 5 of 5

The rental was perfect for us. We have two small boys and it was so nice being right there on the beach. Room was very clean and cozy. If we ever come back to Fort Walton we will definitely stay there again. I would highly recommend this for anyone.

Peaceful beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our beach bungalow vacation and I couldn't be more happy with the unit we stayed in. We came to Fort Walton Beach with our dance team, who all mostly stayed in different condos up and down the beach, and we chose to take a more relaxed atmosphere. I cannot begin to tell you what a blessing this place was compared to the hustle and bustle of everything else. This was our seventh trip to the Emerald Coat and for me it will go down as the best! I woke up everyday with a cup of coffee in my hands and sand between my toes and I went to bed every night after watching the sunset for hours on the wonderful private boardwalk over the dunes. The very kind owners, one in particular made our trip extremely memorable, of the other units welcomed us into their special slice of heaven on the beach. Who needs a view from your window when all you can see is a beach full of condo beach umbrellas. All we had to do for was walk twenty feet and there was an unspoiled view of white sand and water. Absolutely wonderful!!!!

Bayou Dwellers Cabana Colony Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Over all I would give the property a 4 1/2, the only drawback was not being able to see the gulf from the property. On the plus side was very private and had a very quick access to the beach, just over the dune. We spent 16 days there for our 50th wedding anniversary, the pictures of the property were exactly what you got. Free washer and dryer on site and charcoal grill available. Eileen very helpful and quick to answer any questions or concerns that we had. We would go back. Enjoyed the area, good food everywhere (try Buck's Almost Famous Smokehouse in Destin and Dewey Destin on Calhoun Ave or High Tide for seafood) good location for day trips, much to see. Spring breakers not a problem anywhere. Surf fishing was fun.

Quaint and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect place for a quick fall beach get away. Easy parking, no crowds & the studio unit set up was "just enough" for a couple's 5 day stay. This property is super clean and the access to the awesome white sandy beach is right there! Property mgmt was quick to respond and is an easy booking. Plenty of things to do and see in the area. We seek local eateries with a nice laid back vibe and there a many of those to chose from. We would certainly stay here again!
