About Rich and Michelle Hendrickson

We have previously lived in Wisconsin and Michigan and have always loved the Great Lakes and being near water. A move to Tennessee a few years ago had us land locked and missing the water. One trip to Okaloosa Island and we were sold. Four months later we owned our own piece of paradise!

Rich and Michelle Hendrickson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Rich and Michelle Hendrickson chose Fort Walton Beach

Love the quiet beaches, floor plan, and huge balcony. Destin is just a short drive away.

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in September 2017, was very impressed and pleased with our choice. Located right on the beach, fabulous view. The balcony furniture was comfortable. We ate outside many times. Loved watching the Dolphins while I enjoyed my morning cup of coffee. My husband and son loved the accommodations as well. Kitchen was stocked with everything needed. Beach service was awesome. The Hendricksons made sure we arrived safely. I would stay there again.

Best place I've stayed in all the time I've been coming to FWB

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The unit is beautiful, and very well organized. To start with, the parking is close to the elevator, which is super close to the front door of the condo, so this weary traveler didn't have to work too hard to "move in." The kitchen is well stocked, and the layout allows you to enjoy the view even while you cook. The decor is beach-themed without being all "pink flamingos," and I appreciated that the shelves were labeled to let you know where everything belonged. The deck is large, and the furniture is super comfortable. I enjoyed watching dolphins, sunrises, and sunsets from the balcony. Beach service was a great perk. I've been coming to FWB for the better part of 40 years, and this is by far the nicest place I've stayed. Will definitely try to book in the future. Thanks!

Perfect vacation place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at this condo and we were very happy with this unit and the location of The Islander. The condo was super clean, had very nice furnishings, and the view from the balcony was beautiful. And it was very convenient to have the included beach service every day. The end of September was a great time to be in Ft. Walton Beach. The Gulf was still warm, the beach wasn't crowded, and we didn't have to wait long to get into even the most popular restaurants. We would definitely rent this unit again.

Spectacular spot!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, relaxing vacation! Condo is in a fabulous location, top floor, right on the ocean with a very private balcony and spectacular views! Beautifully decorated. Quiet location, and only a short drive to supermarket, restaurants, and anything else you might want. Large pool with plenty of chairs/room on pool deck. Having beach chair and umbrella service was a great perk!

Would definitely stay in this unit again, and highly recommend!

Great island condo

  • 5 of 5

This was my families 1st stay in Florida and this condo was perfect! We are a family of 5 (3 kids ages 13, 11, and 2) and the size was just right. Very clean and nicely decorated. The owners were wonderful to work with and texted upon arrival to ensure all was ok. Will Definitely stay here again!
