Nice, but a few things to consider

  • 4 of 5


- Clean and fit description

- Comfy Bed

- Nice space

- Well Organized

- Nice decor

- Perfect View

- Nice Swimming Pool

- Enjoyed walking to the BoardWalk (good restaurants and shops)

- Everything you need is within very short driving distance

Here are the things that make it questionable if we will stay at this condo again or not. When taking a shower, the shower curtain blows in on you. We tried closing the doors, leaving them open, leaving one open, etc to see if that changed it and it did not. My husband and I had to squat and hold the shower curtain to keep it from hitting us. It may not sound like a big deal, but you will not enjoy a cold shower curtain hitting you if you want a warm shower.

When we stay at a hotel or anywhere, we always strip the beds and tidy up just to be courteous. However, we know it isn't required. The owners of this condo requested that the dishwasher be loaded and turned on, to have the bedding stripped, and to take out the trash. Again, we would have cleaned up anyway.. but something made the stay less special with those "rules". I am the guest and I am paying, so if I want to be a beach bum the whole time, I feel like I should have that luxury. The cleaners that come in after we leave should be responsible for things like this.

Cozy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The condo was so cutely decorated....shabby Chic. It was very comfortable and relaxing, we had a everything we wanted and needed. The view is unbelievable. Ft Walton a Beach is the most relaxing place on Florida's Northwest side, I highly recommend it. We love to eat at the Donut Hole for breakfast and dinner is either Boshamps or Back Porch. Sexton Fesh Seafood is a the only place to buy fresh seafood.

Cute condo

  • 4 of 5

First of all, the decor is adorable. The bed/couches are comfortable and everything is clean. There are enough utensils, pots, pans, etc in the kitchen to be able to make your own meals instead of eating out every day. The view is beautiful and the beach is just a short walk away. We arrived at 6pm on our first day (2 hours after the 4pm check-in time) and they were still cleaning the condo. The cleaning lady said she didn't know we were coming and told us to go get groceries or something to eat and come back in an hour. This was irritating because we had just driven 12 hours and had to basically go away while they finished up. We tried calling the rental company a few but no one would get back to us. Hopefully they can get the logistics down next time so that others won't have to wait to get into the condo. All in all it was a great stay and would definitely come back.

Loved the room and decor. Everything worked properly and was very clean. Coming from an OCT person , this meant alot! Weather and water was beautiful and wasn't crowded at all. Pool was nice and warm , which is hard to find in a heated pool. We had a wonderful vacation while staying in your wonderful condo!
