About kay

We fell in love with Okaloosa Island /Destin area long time ago. After years of visiting the area( often multiple visit a year), we finally have our little piece of parpdise. We hope every guest will have experience great as ours and enjoy our beach home !

We will have another fabulous condo ready by the end of March 2017. Please contact me for availability for 2017

kay purchased this condo in 2015

Why kay chose Ft Walton Beach

I can not say enough of the views from our condo. Being a west end unit ,one of the most desireable 3rd floor ( actually 4th), you can enjoy the best views of the beach . and ahhh.....the Sunset!

Okloosa Island is so close to all the attractions of Destin /Pananma city. But ... with out the crowded streets and beaches of Destin.

What makes this condo unique

All most brand new!!

Close to everything! yet, away from heavy traffic and crowds.

Large beach front means plenty of room to enjoy while you are at the beach even during the peak season.

Outstanding view of the Gulf with welcoming natural light!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a wonderful time vacationing to the Emerald Coast, as always!! We love Okaloosa Island as it is off the "tourist" scene with quieter beaching, but close enough for all the entertainment and dining if needed. This year we decided to try a different condo as the one we stayed in last year was booked.

The owner, Kay, was great to work with as she made the entire process very easy and she was quickly available to solve a minor check out problem with the door entry code. So that was nice. The other pros to this condo was the size and layout, natural lighting, beach service, and the décor/upgrades in the kitchen and master bath.

However, the only reason why I gave my review 4 stars is because the condo does need a good, "deep" cleaning and touch up. There was a lot of dust build up on the closet doors to the utility closet, base boards throughout the unit, lamp shades, pictures, etc. In addition, there were drink rings on end tables so you could easily see these were not cleaned. The wood flooring was beautiful but unfortunately was a bit sticky feeling, again, was not cleaned well. There was clearly hair build up in the drains of two of the showers, which in my opinion should be cleaned out for new guests arriving. We also noticed that the walls were dirty around the toilet areas, especially in the master bath. On the balcony there were nail clippings that were never cleaned up. The bar stools in the kitchen were dirty.

The cleanliness issues did not interrupt our stay nor did we feel it was necessary to have remedied, but feel it is worth mentioning as previous condos we have stayed in were much cleaner. This could be a simple housekeeping issue.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Good location, on the beach, nicely decorated.

Could have been cleaner. The whole place needs a very good dusting especially ceiling fans. There was also food on floor from previous renter in pantry and under sofas. The glass stove stop was dirty.

Apart from the lack of cleanliness, my family enjoyed their stay.

Beautiful Condo with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! It was beautifully decorated throughout and provided everything we needed. I loved watching the sunrise from the balcony with my 5 month old daughter every morning. We had a few issues with the electronic door lock, but overall we had a perfect stay!

Fall break 2017

  • 5 of 5

Gulf Dunes is a nice condo, especially for families. We have stayed in other condos in same building and in others in same area BUT GULF DUNES UNIT 317 is by far the nicest condo my family has ever stayed at! Pictures do not even come close to showing the beauty of this condo. The lay out was exceptional and perfect for our family!!! Highly recommend and just hope we are fortunate enough to get to stay here again. We did spend two days there during Hurricane Nate. Condo was so sound proof and I was worried about furniture possibly on deck from winds but didn't even seem to move. Very nice outdoor table and seating! Thank you Kay! Hope to rent again as it was simply beautiful and has such a nice stocked kitchen. I really can't say enough about how truly nice and trendy this condo is.
