Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: We are retired USAF military members and live on Okaloosa Island ourselves only 2 miles to the west of our rental townhouse.

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
We have owned this town house since the late 80's and it was used by a family member until recently. In 2013 we completed a renovation of the interior including new paint and ceilings, bathroom upgrades and new appliances.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This town house is at the center of Okaloosa Island amenities within easy walking access to over 4 nearby restaurants, favorite Island Bars, and the Islands Beautiful Beach. A new Okaloosa Island Family oriented Mini-Golf course (& Ice Cream Shop) is now open about 600 feet from our townhouse. Additionally 3 different Boat and SeaDoo rental facilities, and the Harbor Walk beach recreation, restaurants and fishing pier are just 2 miles away, and the Luckiest Fishing Village Destin is only 8 miles down the road plus you are in the middle of all the Emerald Coast shopping and recreation activities (Pensacola to Panama City), -- only minutes away by car or the Island bus service, day or night. Come and enjoy what Island Time is all about.
