Car: Recommended

Be sure to check out the local calendar of events so that you don't miss one of our festivals. Billy Bowlegs is our favorite!

The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is one of the best in the South and contains many designer items at deeply discounted prices.

Eating is a pleasure in this area and you don't have to spend a fortune to do so.

We have one of the top ten nightclubs in the nation just about 6 miles from our condo - and it sits on the Destin Harbour. Feel the cool breezes as you sip your cocktails.

The Gulfarium is just about 2 miles from the condo. It is well-known for rehabilitating injured dolphins. Shows are given several times a day in season. Children may interact with the dolphins.

Gulf Breeze Zoo is located about 20 miles away.

Pensacola is just 50 miles away and is the home of the Blue Angels Flight Team. When they are in town, you can go and watch them practice - no charge. Minor league baseball and ice hockey also in Pensacola.

Fort Pickens is a delightful Gulf side drive away. It is one of the forts that protected Florida during the Civil War. It is also where many important Apache warriors were held for a while following the Apache War - the most famous of whom was Chief Geronimo.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We first came to this area (Destin) on vacation about 30 years ago. On the whole trip back home to Kentucky we made plans to retire here...somehow! We were so caught up in the dream that we missed all three exits to our home town of Bowling Green!! The following year we bought our first vacation home here. It was across the street from the beach and we called it our $100,000 walk. We moved here permanently about 17 years ago. We bought this property last year with a plan to live here eventually. It is the only condo that we have ever seen (that we could afford) that does not have a tunnel vision feel to it, so it feels more like a home. It is also much larger than most local condos. We hired someone to manage the rentals for us whilst we learned the ropes of renting a condo on the Gulf Coast, but that person is no longer able to manage the unit for us. We live in Fort Walton Beach, and we are only a ten-minute drive from our unit, so we decided to manage the rentals for ourselves this year. We are looking forward to welcoming lots of new friends to share our piece of Paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
When we first owned property in Destin we thought that it was the most beautiful place in the world. However, Destin has become so commercialized over the years that we decided that Okaloosa Island gives us more of the cozy, family friendly atmosphere that Destin used to have...while still being only six miles away.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Within walking distance to restaurants, quaint downtown shopping, grocery stores, bars. Within walking distance to many special festivals that are held throughout the year - you have to experience the Billy Bowlegs Festival first hand - and you can see the fireworks displays (at least five per year) from the balcony of our unit if you don't wish to walk or drive across the bridge.
