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 escape!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great with my daughters. It was very clean and all the supplies in the kitchen worked and were nice.

The beach service was a plus. I would stay here again.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything that it was told us to be, very clean well stocked and the view was outstanding. Rich and Michelle was so easy to work with and very concerned that we were happy ..... I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a few days of peace and quiet and beautiful view.

Beautiful oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful oceanfront condo. The condo has been completely updated and the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and appliances. The ice maker does not work well, but it's no big deal as you can get a 10lb bag of ice from the Tom Thumb which is only a few blocks away. The condo is comfortable and has an amazing oceanfront view. It is on the top floor so it's quite easy to watch dolphins from the balcony. It has a large balcony with very comfortable patio chairs. You do hear other people when you are out on the balcony but once you are back in the condo with the windows and doors closed, it is completely quiet. The elevators are slow but it's a good reminder to sit back and relax - you are on vacation after all so there is no rush! The pool is just a few steps from the elevator and it is very well maintained. The property has beach chair service everyday. Two beach chairs and an umbrella are set up for you. All you have to do is walk down and enjoy the ocean. There is also a pier a couple of miles down the beach. We walked the pier at sunset and it has a great view of the condos along the beach - a great photo opportunity! We did actually walk to the pier but it is quite a distance from the condo and my legs were killing me the next day. It's probably best to drive down. There are restaurants around the pier and we ate and listened to live music before walking the pier. It's a great atmosphere if you want to have a little activity on your vacation. The majority of the time, we stayed on the beach near the condo. This condo has the perfect beach area if you are wanting a quiet vacation. This portion of the beach is not very busy and I was able to enjoy the sound of the ocean while reading a book. This is a beautiful property and we definitely plan to stay again the next time we are in Ft Walton Beach.

Best condo ever

  • 4 of 5

The recently renovated condo was the best we ever rented. The kitchen had anything and everything you would ever want in a kitchen. The decorations were VERY tasteful and the beds comfortable.

The balcony was large and well furnished.

The only negative was insufficient toilet paper plus the ice maker was a daily pain.

We will definitely rent this condo again when returning to Okahoosa Island at Ft. Walton Beach

Better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

The place appears to recently been updated and is very nice. The view was spectacular. We weren't satisfied with the chair and umbrella procedure. We are not the 1st to be unsatisfied with this as we read feedback from other stayers at the room. You do get 2 chairs & umbrella which is nice, however you do not get the same spot as it is supposed to be 1st come unless you are handicapped or elderly. As the week went on we continued to have to choose an umbrella further from our room as more continued to get reserved and these people weren't handicapped or elderly. They need more carts desperately and elevators were hot and very slow. The condo was cleaned and well maintained. We did not have any problems to report during our stay. Tijuana Flats & Mcguires is recommended for good reasonable food. The place is nice a quite and close to Destin "10 minutes" for activity and restaurants. We did rent a pontoon boat from the fudpuckers in Fort Walton and had a great time. Would highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad that our condo met your expectations and that you would highly recommend it to others. We are sorry that you weren’t satisfied with the beach service. There are always 2 chairs and an umbrella available in front of the resort for our guests; however, we don’t have any control over the policies of the beach service provider to determine how close the chairs will be to your room. Your stay was in the middle of the peak rental season. It is much more crowded during this time, which can sometimes lead to slower elevators and more difficulty finding carts.
