About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Sleeps 2

If you are tired of combing through countless listings in your search for a place to stay while visiting the Emerald Coast, I know how you feel. I've done it many times myself. I've found that many of these "by owner" listings are actually listed by rental management companies that add on numerous fees so that the listed rate does not even resemble the final price. You will not find that here. The only additional charges that you will incur are the fee paid to and charged by HomeAway (VRBO) at time of booking and the taxes required by the county and state.

My goal is to help you find the accommodations you are looking for in the Emerald Coast area with as little trouble and time wasted as possible. While my condo is new to VRBO, I have been renting to guests for over ten years either through an onsite rental manager or through a websitet ad. I have had many return guests and hope to count you as one in the future.

There is a queen size bed in the main room. There is also a sleeper sofa available in case a second bed is required. The kitchenette includes a full size fridge, full size microwave, two burner solid surface cook-top, cookware, utensils, dishes, several small appliances and everything else you might need to prepare meals. The full bath contains a traditional tub/shower combo and all the linens you'll need. The patio door provides easy access to the pool, the luscious grounds, and the marina.

We really enjoy coming down from Tennessee and making it comfortable for our rental guests. We want to be comfortable when we visit and we want our guests to be comfortable as well.

We have also enjoyed bringing our boat with us on vacation. Before purchasing the condo, we brought our boat with us and always had headaches finding a place to keep it. Launching it and hauling it out and storing it every day becomes quite costly. If you enjoy bringing your boat with you, we have a 120 slip marina with slips of all sizes available for rent. There is nothing more convenient than being able to walk out the back door of the condo directly to the marina, untie your boat and being on the water in minutes. We have boat trailer parking available on-site as well.

The most beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast are just a 2.5 mile drive from my door to the free public parking area on Okaloosa Island. From these public lots, you are just steps away from the Gulf. Many of these public lots also have restrooms and rinse-off showers.

There are too many restaurants in the area to list...we have provided a traveler's guide in the condo that highlights our favorites. There is also an Olive Garden restaurant adjacent to our building.

If this sounds like your kind of place, then send me an email, give me a call, or book your reservation directly from this site. I am very easy to deal with and want to ensure that you have a great stay in our condo!

One more thing...if my calendar shows that the condo is booked for the dates you are requesting, give me a call or send an email. I have another condo listed on VRBO that is almost identical to this one. In fact, it is in the same complex six doors away from this one. I may have the days you are looking for available in that one. Please search for 702440 on VRBO to see the other listing or visit

About Brett Busbee

We are both Florida natives but now live in Tennessee. We have raised two beautiful daughters who have grown up helping us improve, maintain, and decorate our condos from the ages of 9 and 11. Having a pool just a few steps from out patio was very comforting when the girls needed a break from helping us.

Brett Busbee purchased this studio in 2001

Why Brett Busbee chose Ft Walton Beach

We purchased this property when we lived in Louisiana and were only about three hours away. It is a beautiful complex and has a boat slip in the marina. We enjoyed bringing our boat on vacation and this place was a natural fit for us. The area is a perfect fit for us. It is not as crowded as Destin, but all that Destin has to offer is only a few minutes away and the condo is conveniently located near the best beaches in Florida.

What makes this studio unique

We love the fact that our condos are on the first floor. This means you can park at the front door and be just a few steps away from the pool when you go out the back patio door. We enjoyed working on the condo while our two young daughters could play in the pool within our sight. There is also a small sandy beach on the property where our daughters could be found catching hermit crabs or just enjoying the beautiful water.

Clean, quiet and beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Brett's condo was very nice. My wife and I stayed in it along with our 2 teenage daughters for a week. It was perfect for coming back from a day of exploring and then crashing for the evening.

It is small, but it was big enough for 4 of us to sleep in. The location was great since it didn't seem touristy like Destin.

The swimming pool is big and probably the cleanest one that we have been in.


Location, clean, quiet, beautiful.

Brett responded very quickly to questions that I had. Even while we were staying there.


Use an air mattress in instead of the hide-a-bed.

For those that are interested in finding a nice beach: We went to Navarre beach west of Ft. Walton for a couple of evenings. Most people were leaving the beach at about 4. So for being the middle of summer, I was surprised how quiet this beach was. Plus traveling west of Ft. Walton was much quieter than heading east to Destin.

We definitely will stay here again! Thanks!

Great Studio Condo and Owner was Great to work with

  • 5 of 5

I've traveled all over the country and have booked reservations with a lot of rental managers and owners but dealing with Brett was a truly wonderful experience. There were absolutely no surprises. The studio condo was exactly as described and as pictured. The cost and the reservation experience was exactly as described. Everything was perfect and I wish more rental managers and owners did business this exact same way. The condo was clean and fresh upon my arrival. Everything in the condo worked as it should have and it was well appointed.

I'll definitely be back and I'd recommend this condo to anyone out there looking for a great place to stay!!

My family had a great time staying at this condo. Brett was great to work with and very hospitable. The condo is just a few minutes drive from the beach and anything you're looking to do. We definitely plan on trying to stay here again next year!!
