About Jackie Wolf

We are retired and live in Wisconsin. We are excited to open our vacation home so others can enjoy an affordable vacation near the stunning gulf coast.

Jackie Wolf purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jackie Wolf chose Fort Walton Beach

We have vacationed on the gulf coast over the past 10 years and never tired of the beauty of the emerald coast. Fort Walton Beach and nearby Destin offer everything for those yearning to spend time near the sea.

What makes this condo unique

This property is small but offers a great opportunity for small families to enjoy all of the activities the area has to offer at an affordable price. The condo comfortably accommodates 4 people. Whether you want to just enjoy the beach or visit the Gulfarium, the Air Force Armament Museum, pier fishing, and let's not forget all of the great shopping the area has to offer, it's all available from this convenient location on Okaloosa Island.

Beautiful and perfectly located.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the most ideal location. It was absolutely perfect for my 8 month old son. The beach here was not overly crowded and was clean and family friendly. The condo was in perfect condition and we could not have asked for better.

Very Dissappointed With This Condo's LACK OF CLEANLINESS!

  • 2 of 5

Upon arrival and first look into this unit my husband and I were satisfied with our choice. But that changed. As we were settling in we discovered a dirty coffee maker, dirty cookware, cooler with a moldy interior, and a dirty bathroom! Once we cleaned all (except for the moldy cooler) we decided to make the best of it. Then we discovered that there was NO secure internet but we made do without. Our stay was scheduled for 8 nights and during that time we wanted to change the bedsheets due to the fact that the sheets that were on the bed are too large and every night were shifting all over. Learned that there is only 1 set of sheets for the bed...so we made do without once again.

On the morning of our last full day at this condo the cleaning crew unlocked and entered this unit (lucky for us we were dressed!) WITHOUT EVEN A KNOCK ON THE DOOR to clean the unit! They had an error on their schedule. That was enough for us! I did call the property owner and we had a good conversation. My husband and I decided that we wanted to just pack our things and leave 1 day early. The property owner understood and was thankful for the information about our stay.

But, RENTER BEWARE....this property owner then gave us A BAD (3-star) REVIEW and we aren't sure why. We left the condo cleaner than it was on our arrival, we followed all house rules (bedding stripped, dishes washed, garbage out, condo locked etc.). I did communicate with the owner before leaving the property and at that time she was appologetic and understanding.

If the property owner had any issues with our actions during our stay it would have been best if she would have at least attempted communication with us instead of just leaving a poor review. I have to assume the owner was unhappy with our early departure which resulted in a poor review reflected upon us! Perhaps she is being misinformed by her cleaning crew, I just don't know!

We will NOT RETURN to this property but we will continue to use VRBO/Home Away in the future!

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry that you had a bad experience. Unfortunately, you didn't make me or my service aware of any of issues until you called me the day you left. Many of the issues above were not part of that discussion. I talked to my service regarding their early arrival and there was a mix up in the schedule. I agreed with you that they still should have knocked even if they thought you departed. This will never happen again. If the condo was as you now depict you should have called right away and I would have had my service come in and correct any issues. Also, you didn't mention in this review that I refunded you for your early departure. Why did I give you 3 stars? I was disappointed that you didn't give me a chance to correct any issues and that you called me when you made the decision to depart, we only discussed some of the items you mention in your review. I have a great team that strives for great service and we were not given the opportunity correct any issues. Your bold title letters are an unfair depiction of our condo. The guests that left before you and after you had great experiences.

Enjoyed our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

SO CLOSE to the beach! It was so easy for our family to walk over and enjoy the beach, or back to the unit for the kids to rest. Had everything we needed! Convenience store next door made the trip a breeze since we could just walk over to grab necessities. Great stay!

Map

First floor, wheelchair accessible ramp provides access to the condo, bathroom is not wheelchair accessible. Will consider small dog with additional fee and deposit. Back door is steps from beach access walkway. Very cost effective unit for a small family or a couple. Condo includes high speed internet and cable TV. Enjoy 2 flat screen televisions and a DVD player. Very nice swimming pool available for guests so bring your beach towels and enjoy the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and have sand between your toes 20 yards from your back door. You can relax poolside after enjoying many of the activities the area offers. There is a well stocked convenience store located just across the road.
