About Bill Tumlin & Grace Ellis
Hello! This is part of our family and we are happy to invite you to our little piece of paradise. We now live in Tennessee after many years on the Florida Gulfcoast. We love the beach and all it has to offer and know you will enjoy it as much as we do! Bill, Constance and the kids
Bill Tumlin & Grace Ellis purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Bill Tumlin & Grace Ellis chose Ft Walton Beach
It was a great opportunity to have something right on the beach. Okaloosa Island offers some great family opportunities. Great beaches, some great food and entertainment within walking distance make it a great location. Not quite as crowded as Destin and not quite as remote as Navarre...this is a perfect balance.
What makes this Condo unique
Lots of water! Of course the beach and gulf are just steps away, but you also have the benefit of lots of fresh water in all of the Destin West water amenities including the lazy river, the giant pool, the other smaller and heated pools and the splash park. The fitness center is well equipped and airconditioned so when you've had enough sun...it's a great place to burn off some of those vacation calories. Gulfarium is just down the road and the boardwalk is great.

Our Destin West condo was perfect for our spring break vacation! Highly recommend to others.
We had a condo on the sixth floor facing the Gulf and the bigger swimming pool. From our porch we could hear the ocean waves, watch our son fish on the pier, and also keep an eye on our other son and daughter in the pool area.
To access the ocean beach, it was merely going down the elevator and walking over a short boardwalk.
The condo unit was spacious for my husband, myself, and our four children (ranging in age from 13- 19). Everything was very clean, the kitchen was well supplied, the stack washer and dryer proved invaluable, and the living room area was spacious enough for eat-in meals and socializing.
There really was no need to go out and fight the traffic. We just enjoyed our time on the beach or swimming in the pool. (There is a grocery store within a few miles for needed food supplies.). My 15 year old son spent most of his time on the pier and caught BIG fish.
( A restaurant, right at the edge of the pier, will cook your fish according to preference ). We ate our sons Spanish Mackerels one evening. It was an amazing meal!
I really have no negatives. By unanimous vote, we all agreed that we want a return trip to Destin West!
SPRING BREAK 2018
Another wonderful Spring Break in Fort Walton Beach. Our condo was perfect, check in, check out was so smooth and property itself was perfect . Would highly recommend and would definately try and rent this property again!
Wonderful... as usual.
Renting from these owners is always a pleasure. They are easy to work with and their condos are always top notch. I've stayed in different units over the years and they are consistently clean, well equipped, and beautifully decorated. I will be staying with them for years to come and I recommend you do too.
Thank you for this awesome and kind review about our condos and company. We enjoy serving you year after year! We strive to provide the best vacation possible for our guests. Thank you again and we look forward to your return.

Wonderful condo/ great owners
The condo was lovely! It had far more items to prepare us for our stay than I was expecting (coffee filters, soap, etc). I've stayed in this complex before and had the bare minimum. Although we didn't need them, there were several family friendly items there (stroller, high chair, boogie boards). We got married at the hotel next door and two nights were included in our wedding package. We booked the condo for an extra night because it was 100% nicer than the hotel. Bill and Grace were super responsive on any issues that came up. They were pretty much operator error on my part, but it was nice to know they immediately got back to me they few times I texted them. The only thing that I would suggest is more kitchen dish towels. There was only one of each. That could have been a cleaning staff issue, though. I highly recommend this condo!
Thank you for your detailed review and for booking with Shelley's Vacation Favorites! We are so glad that you enjoyed this condo and your vacation. Thank you for the feedback on the kitchen towels. We have purchased more :) Thank you again and we look forward to serving you again.
