About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 pull out sofa, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This cabana colony studio is a cozy ground floor unit that sits only 40 ft away from the beach. Not to worry, even though your full view of the ocean is hindered by sand dunes, the gulf is just beyond them. Once you walk over the boardwalk, miles of secluded sand and serenity await your relaxation.

We are just a few miles away from 4 restaurants that sit on the ocean, as well as the popular Gulfarium, which includes dolphin shows and tons of aquatic sea-life exhibits.

This location is very diverse. Although there's a secluded beach right outside your door, you're only 6 miles west of Destin's outlet shopping and tourist attractions!!

Cozy & clean!

  • 2 of 5

The unit was clean and updated. The AC is chilly! Okaloosa Island is laid-back and very quiet, family friendly. No high rises over 6-7 floors. From the condo the access to the beach is quick, right over the dunes... awesome.

I hated not seeing the water from the condo (They did NOT advertise that you would, but ....) and if you like to cook, the kitchen is just too small. It's hard to make toast and coffee at the same time.

So... if it's just a couple, or a couple with kids, AND you like to eat out AND don't mind not seeing the water from the condo (again it's a VERY quick walk over the dunes to the beach) this is the spot!

Close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for four nights in mid-May and we couldn't believe how close the unit is to the water compared to what we're used to with staying in condos. The idea of not being surrounded by so many people on the beach (as you get when staying in a large condominium) is what drew me in and it definitely delivered. While there were still people around us it was much more quiet and way less crowded. We enjoyed our stay, everything was as described. The only two things I could complain about would be the bed (it was definitely noisy) and some cleaning issues (we found fruit loops in drawers and an old razor in the bathroom). The owner (Eileen) was great to work with. We're already talking about booking again at the end of September. Maybe the bed can be fixed by then :)

This was a last minute trip that I booked on the fly, the manager of this property was EXCELLENT. I can't say enough about how she handled the booking with me. Haven't actually been to the property yet, but will update once our trip is completed. I do know that if you are dealing with the manager of this property (Eilleen) she will take the extra step to insure things are in order...

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly what we expected! It was great for a couple and was very private and peaceful. It had everything we needed, except paper towels. Which if that's the only thing we were missing, then I'm fine :) The shower head was a little low which made showering a little uncomfortable considering both me and my guest are tall. The beach was very close, right over the dune and was great. Wasn't a lot of people especially being Labor Day weekend. The bed was comfortable and big! We really enjoyed our stay and are hoping to get back there soon. I am a little concerned about the new complex they are building nearby. I am wondering how this will effect the privatness of the unit. Hopefully, it won't change too much as we are hoping to make a trip there again.

Budget Friendly

  • 3 of 5

Our visit got off to a rocky start. Check-in was 4:00 pm. We arrived at 8:30pm and the unit had yet to be cleaned. Eileen was very helpful and got right on it. We went to dinner and the unit was cleaned and ready when we returned and Eileen refunded our first nights stay to make up for the inconvenience.The unit is just as described and you are only steps from the sand, however, you are also steps from a major high rise construction zone. NO real noise issues just a little awkward to access the unit but once there its definitely worth it. I would not only return but also recommend this unit.
