Snowbird getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth year to return to this location. We were very happy with our condo. We did have a few hiccups this year. The elevator to the pedestrian walkway across 98 was out of order for a few days making it hard to cross, especially with strollers or wagons to go to the beach. We had a few days in which the water in our complex was shut off. The hot tubs were broken ( no bubblers) and the adult hot tub didn’t even have heat for the last week we were there. The facility is very well manicured, and the pools areas always cleaned and straighten every morning. They have a cleaning staff that assures that the elevators and your floors are clean. The other thing was a shortage of layout chairs. I believe they were being stored in the garage area for the winter months and there was a few weekends that there was no chairs available at the pool. We really love this location and will be returning for another winter season in hopes they have had time to fix some of the property items mentioned.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay in Fort Walton Beach. The condo was clean and spacious. The pool area was great, the kids loved it. The beach was very peaceful. This condo is in a great location... just a short drive to restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.
