About Joy Davenport

We have always enjoyed the beauty of the coast, especially the Gulf of Mexico Emerald Coast with snow white sand. The decision to share our vacation home was a decision we made shortly after we purchased the property in 2013. We hope our guests will feel pampered, and relaxed when they visit Bella Vista.

Joy Davenport purchased this condo in 2013

Why Joy Davenport chose Fort Walton Beach

We searched the Destin area for beach property for several months. When our realtor crossed the bridge to Okaloosa Island, we saw the beautiful sand dunes and sea oats, and decided to extend our search just West of Destin.

We looked at several (quite a few, really) properties in the Destin area and on Okaloosa Island; but when we entered the door of this condo and saw the gorgeous emerald water against the blue sky we knew we had found our place.

Since we purchased this property because of the Beautiful View, we decided to give it the name: 'Bella Vista.'

What makes this condo unique

No high-rise buildings, less traffic, pristine (less crowded) beaches. We are near the center of the property on the top floor. We love it here.

I couldn't have been happier with this vacation, the condo was fantastic, the views were amazing! We were able to see dolphins swimming from the balcony, it's so quick and easy to go to the beach or the pool & everything was so clean. A+

Absolutely Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Ft. Walton Beach a total of 4 times now, including our last stay. The first time we stayed in Pelican Aisle. The next two times we stayed in condos at this resort, Waters Edge. Waters Edge is much superior property, IMO. Of the three units we have stayed in at WE, this particular condo is by far THE BEST. It is comfortably appointed, the decor is current and appropriate for a beach condo, the updated kitchen is really accommodating for cooking and eating in, I was super impressed with the washer/dryer combo as I have had previous rental machines destroy clothing and this one was very gentle on my clothes, the beds have nice linens, and last but not least the view from the top floor balcony is astounding. I particularly love having the master on the gulf side and being able to leave our windows open at night to hear the lull of the waves. There is also a sliding door in the master that opens up to the balcony and this is really excellent because you can rest in bed while watching TV and simultaneously enjoying the ocean. Also, the all the TVs in the condo are newer flat screens and additionally it's GREAT to have Netflix in the living room. The last thing I would like to list that is fabulous about this condo in particular is that the owners are super responsive to texts both before and during your stay and they are truly committed to you enjoying your vacation. PS. I REALLY like the beach service (which is standard in this building) AND that in this particular unit they provide extra beach chairs AND beach towels, which really lightens the load when packing. My husband and I were very impressed overall and will definitely stay here again. It's not any more expensive than the other, not-as-nice units but it is definitely waay above average. I HIGHLY recommend staying here.

Wonderful View!

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome time staying for a week here. The view from both the living room and master bedroom was absolutely amazing! Make sure to open your curtains at night and enjoy the moon shinning off of the ocean. Just breath taking.

Gorgeous views and beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in a condo. I spent a lot of time searching for the perfect family-friendly place for my husband and I and our children. Our kids are 4 and 1 and this was their first beach vacation. We could not have been happier with Bella Vista! It is beautifully decorated from top to bottom. Everything was very clean too. Master bedroom matress is very comfy. The bunk beds were fun for the kids. The views from the balcony are breathtaking. We loved seeing the ocean from the master, living room, dining room and kitchen. It was fun waking up and watching the dolphins swim. We saw them every morning! The condo was well stocked with everything we needed. We were glad we brought our own beach towels. (Condo only had 1) The covered parking was very convenient. The grounds are well kept and the pool was large and very clean. Having beach chairs and an umbrella was also a plus. Joy was very responsive when we had a question related to the wifi. We had a wonderful vacation and fell in love with this condo and Okaloosa Island. We can't imagine staying anywhere else! Thank you, Joy!

Beautiful place overlooking the gorgeous emerald coast.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for the great stay Joy. This condo is perfect for family or couples. We had 4 adults and it was great for us. All the amenities you could ever need and the view and sound of the water can't be beaten. Having a glass of wine on the balcony while watching the sunset is the best feeling! I would highly recommend this place and Joy is truly a joy to work with!
