Guestbook comments from the owner

Tiki Beach is a wonderful 1 bedroom condo on the ocean with a breathtaking view. It is located next to the Island Princess and only has a total of 9 units. The condo is on the 3rd floor middle unit. Because being on the 3rd floor the view from the balcony is absolutely wonderful. We have are own private gated access to the beach and it is never crowded.

Fantastic beach condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a great stay at Diane's condo. Tiki 32 is a clean, comfortable, and well equipped condo with perfect unobstructed views in all directions from the balcony. The unit is tastefully decorated with a casual beach theme and everything is in good working order exactly as advertised. Diane was very responsive with a questions that we had upon our arrival. This is a beautiful quiet beach area and we liked being in a small complex with parking directly in front. We would definitely return to this exact same unit.

Amazing Beach Front Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Diane's condo. The third floor location is superb! The balcony is situated so that you can see over the dunes and get both the sunrise and sunset over the beautiful Gulf. The sand on the beach is very nice, not sticky like some beaches. We were fortunate with the weather, as we stayed in February, that it was warmer than normal, so we were told by the extremely friendly residents. The water was clear, as in no seaweed, and was great to swim in.

The condo itself is tastefully decorated and everything is in good working order. The bed is super comfy. Plenty of dishes to make eating in very easy. The Publix is quite close.

We brought bicycles so the ground floor storage locker was a bonus. Anyone looking for a beautiful bike ride should go to Navarre Beach, the road is newly paved and runs along miles of unspoiled beach. Fort Pickens is another ideal bike ride from Pensacola Beach.

The Harley Davidson store in Panama Beach outfitted us with a couple of motorcycles and we took a fantastic ride through the Apalachicola Forest. Apparently Fort Walton HD also rents but their 2017 fleet wasn't available yet.

If you are looking for a clean, well equipped condo to relax and enjoy a beautiful quiet beach getaway, then look no further, as Diane has got just the place for you!

My favorite condo on Okaloosa Island

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Tiki Beach several times but Unit 32 is my favorite. This trip was with my 10 year old daughter. She feel in love with the condo also. The beach is right there. Beautiful view, clean condo, close to everything. If you are looking for simple, quiet, right on the beach you'll love Tiki Beach condo!

Excellent location and view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and location! My husband and I had planned a romantic anniversary getaway that unexpectedly turned into a fun, family weekend. We took our two daughters, 15 and 6, and had plenty of room in this very well kept condo. The balcony view was exceptional and we enjoyed the use of the beach toys in the outdoor storage area. We hope to stay here again next year!

Tiki Beach Hut - Clean and Tastefully Decorated Oceanfront Condo on beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

12-16 Jan 2017 - My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Tiki Beach Hut. The condo was reasonably priced. The oceanfront view and white powder sand was a joy. The location was quiet but close to amenities. The condo was tastefully decorated and clean. Diane was easy to work with and responsive to our queries before, during and after our stay. We would certainly visit Okaloosa Island again.

Clean, beautiful, but simple

  • 3 of 5

Diane has great reviews - and her property deserves them! I would come back because we enjoyed our time at Tiki. However, we have stayed in multiple rentals from, and I was disappointed by this property in a couple ways:

- The kitchen has NO FOOD. Most properties have at least spices and maybe ketchup in the fridge. This had nothing. I didn’t even find a salt or pepper shaker. There was new ice in the freezer. So just keep in mind that if you are cooking you have to bring ALL food items.

- Beach towels are not provided. This may be common in beach properties, but I asked Diane via message if she provided anything, but she didn’t reply until she sent her standard documentation 5 days later (24 hours before we arrived), by which time we were already traveling and I couldn’t go back and bring them so we just didn’t use any.

- The instructions were somewhat confusing…she sent a door code but then said we needed to call someone for it. Then, the instructions said you must use the # sign before the code, and we were standing there at 10 PM at night, and it wouldn’t work! We thought to try without the # sign, and then it worked.

This location was beautiful! Beach was clean, quiet, peaceful. We opened the back door in the morning to hear the sounds of the waves and loved it! The view of the Gulf was perfect. It is third story with no elevator, so just be aware that you have to carry luggage up flights of stairs. Loved swimming in the Gulf and the beach gear in the closet was just what we needed/wanted. We had seafood at the Crab Trap and frozen yogurt at Yogo Mogos - both good! An amazing beach experience!
