Enjoy one of the largest heated outdoor pools on Okaloosa Island. Beach chairs and a boogie board in the unit. Just 10 minutes from Destin and an hour from Pensacola and Panama City. Perfect for families, couples, and snowbirds!

Many guests have asked about the view. Please click on the video link on the above photo to see the video I took of the view. It really is the best view possible on Okaloosa Island.

About Tonya

Tim and Tonya live in Iowa with their three school age children.

Tonya purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tonya chose Fort Walton Beach

We visited friends living in the area and immediately fell in love with the gorgeous beaches. Of all the condo units we looked at, this one was by far the best. It had the view we wanted. No parking lots or fences or other units blocking view of the gulf. No streets to cross to get to the beach. The balcony was the largest of those we looked at. The interior was the most spacious we had seen. We look forward to escaping the harsh midwest winters occasionally and are happy to share our second home with you!

What makes this condo unique

We love the family friendly beaches and atmosphere. Action-packed Destin is just a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent the month of February here..delighted with the balcony view of the ever changing ocean. The condo was clean and met our needs nicely. The bedrooms need updating (owners comment: we did this after your visit). We really like the design of this condo with living and dining room so open. The people here are very friendly and the building and grounds very clean. Pompano Joes in Destin is a fun stop, especially on a warm sunny day. Thank you for renting us your condo. 2 sofas are very comfortable and nicely recovered ( owners comment: the are brand new) Also 2 new mattresses in 2nd bedroom.

Prefect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful vacation (5/14/16 - 5/21/16). I know where we are vacationing from now on. The unit was one of the cleanest I've ever stayed at. I always take cleaning supplies and extra towels, etc., as I've had some horrible experiences, but we didn't even have to take them out of the car. The view couldn't be better and the location was great if you don't want crowds. If you do want to be in the middle of everything, its just 5 minutes to Destin. Mini-golf, a waterpark and a dozen other attractions are just up the road. We were so surprised to find everything we were promised. I'm an early riser and watching the sunrise every morning is good for the soul. The only downside was that we had to leave. I could have stayed forever.

Great condo, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Five of us (3 children) called this place home for a week. It was so hard to leave. The condo was was perfect in every way. pleanty of room for us. This unit is not directly over pool area so it seemed quieter than if we were directly above pool. Its considered a 3rd floor unit. Actually I would not want to be any lower. our views were perfect. Unit was clean and all appliance worked as they should. WiFi was strong in every room, even on balcony. We will do our best to return to this unit next Fall!

Immaculate Condo in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My parents, my sister, 3 teenage nieces and I had a wonderful vacation at this condo! The view is awesome, the grounds, pool and beach are kept clean and nice. There was not one thing we could have needed, we only had to bring our clothes and food. We brought extra towels for swimming and the washer and dryer made it easier! I highly recommend this condo for families with young children and even teens, I loved not having to cross the street to get to the beach or worry about parking! My nieces love the Gulfarium where they worked with dolphins, Hang Em High Parasailing was so much fun plus they were professional and concerned about our safety. My youngest niece had a blast learning to surf! Oh and a must do is on Tuesday nights is the Pardi Gras parade at the boardwalk in Destin, they had a "mardi" gras type parade, music, dancing, a luve show that is all family and kid friendly. Also on Thursday nights they set off fireworks. There are some awesome restraunts, granted they are pricey but worth it, Fishermans Warf, Gilligan's, Land Shark Pizza, Floyd's Shrimp House, Bubba Gump Shrimp, and Hot Fresh Krispy Cream doughnuts were delicious!! For the adults, do not miss the Outlet Mall, everything from Coach, Disney to Sperry's and everything else inbetween!! If u have younger kids, try the Emerald Coast Science Center, mini-golf and there is a great water park, Fuduckers has an arcade and gator beach but the food good but it is expensive!! I actually had my nails done while there at a place at the foot of the bridge called Diva Nails, they did a beautiful job on them, I have gotten a ton of compliments on them since I got home!!! Winn Dixie is a close grocery store and they.have a great deli and bakery. If u do get bored, New Orleans is just a little over 3 hours to the West and makes an awesome day trip!!! We had a forever memoriable vacation, thank you for sharing this condo with us!!!

Great Time!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the BEST!! The condo was clean and had everything we needed. Beds were good, kitchen was clean, view was AWESOME!!! Off the main drag and very quiet area of the beach.This was one of the most relaxing stays in Destin that we've had. The only things - would recommend - leave the WI-Fi code -- we had teenagers that needed to be online, and we did not have access to the parking garage code.

All in all -- exceptional place -- hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We are glad you had a wonderful time. You should have been given the wi-fi access code in an email from the property managers. In the future, please contact the property manager or email me ASAP, and I will make sure you have it immediately. Thanks again! Come back soon!

I was absolutely thrilled with the condo and the area. The condo was clean, well maintained, gorgeous view of the beach, and prime location for family. The beach was perfect, pristine white powdery sand, green blue water, and not crowded. The pool was great for my kids when the weather was too chilly to sit out by the waterside. Close proximity to Destin for those who want activities to participate in.

I will be visiting the area again, and plan to book this condo for our visit.

Fabulous view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was clean, well-maintained, and refreshingly modestly decorated. The new owners and property managers were very nice and attentive. The condo was quiet with pleasant neighbors. The beach was clean and uncrowded. We loved the large balcony, and the view was amazing. We had no complaints and will definitely be back!
