About Joe & Ann Gauvin

Joe fell in love with the Florida panhandle area when he was in the Air Force, and ended up living in Florida for 31 years. After retiring, we moved to Oxford, MS which is near our grandchildren. We love spending time with family and traveling. We enjoy our time in Florida, which we consider our second home.

Joe & Ann Gauvin purchased this condo in 2002

Why Joe & Ann Gauvin chose Fort Walton Beach

Having a condo right on the beach, in Florida, is a dream come true for both of us. We jumped at the opportunity to purchase the condo when we found out about the plans to build Pelican Isle. We love the location and the property.

What makes this condo unique

We love our Pelican Isle condo because it's on the beach with no blocked views. We like Okaloosa Island because none of the condos are taller than 6 stories high. That means the beach is not crowded. It's also convenient to restaurants, shopping, and golfing, etc.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this condo.Everything was just as good as the first time.Joe is awesome to work with.I think I about drove him nuts on this trip because of Hurricane Irma we couldn't make our minds up on weather to go or not and it ended up being a beautiful week.The condo has the best view and the beaches are just beautiful and not over crowded like other places. The kitchen is well stocked if you wanted to stay in and cook a few nights.The place has always been very clean when we have arrived.Thanks for sharing your all's Blessings with us.

This condo was everything the owner had claimed. The staff was kind and the property was fairly well maintained. The owner was really easy to work with and responded immediately to our questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend renting this unit if you're looking for a quality rental for a fair price.

The Best Beach Front Condo I've Ever Used

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this place is AMAZING!!! The place was spacious, clean, and what a view!!! The beach is right behind the property, the condo had a heated pool and Jacuzzi, and the beach, with it's sugar white sand and turquoise blue water, it all knocked my socks off. The rooms were big and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was clean and fully stocked with all we needed. The bathrooms were clean, nice and well stocked with towels. The living area was very spacious with plenty of sitting room for everyone. The balcony looked straight onto the beach with lots of privacy. The parking was right at the bottom of the stairs. The beach access was a few steps away. The traffic on Fort Walton Island is much less than Destin. This was just the best beach front get away of our family's history and we are definitely going back next year. The owner, Joe, was so helpful. He kept me informed of everything we needed to know. He contacted me prior to our trip to assure us and answer any last minute questions. I cannot say enough about this rental experience. I am so grateful to have found owners so accommodating and a place so beautiful to take my family! A+++++

Condo is Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo the 2nd week of July and it was perfect for our family of 5. Everything is so neat and clean, the beds are so comfortable. The location just cannot be beat! The condo is on the end next to the stairs to take you down to the beach. They have beach toys already at the condo which was awesome since our vehicle was packed to the max and we didn't have room to haul extra boogie boards, etc. The chairs/umbrella service was great and setup each morning for our use. The pool is just directly below the deck, we were able to see our older children swimming without having to go to the pool area. We watched the fireworks from the balcony both Wed and Thurs (Destin) nights. If you are looking for a great place to stay, as well as the perfect people to rent from, look no further. Joe is awesome to deal with! Call Joe today and get everything setup, you won't regret it!

Vacation from reality

  • 5 of 5

This Condo has far exceeded our expectations. We came for a quick getaway and luckily, everything we needed was right there. Dishes,towels, wifi, beach toys, washer/dryer, and movies were all readily available. It is a corner unit which provides a large wrap around balcony with easy access to stairs that lead directly to the beach. We were very pleased with the little touches like a jetted jacuzzi, granite counter tops, and very comfortable king sized beds. The view from the balcony is incredible. We spent hours every night on the patio watching the waves while playing cards. The door also has a keypad so you don't have to worry about keeping up with a key while you're away. The owners were very prompt and responsive with any questions and gave us tips on where to eat and shop. There are numerous restaurants, shops, and a liquor on the same road so you don't have to battle traffic on the main strip. We look forward to coming back to this unit regularly.

Thank you Joe and Ann for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home for our family vacation! It was above and beyond our expectations! Pictures don't do it justice. This is by far our favorite vacation spot for our family vacation. It is much larger than we expected and so clean with everything we could possibly want and need! The second floor view is amazing and being the end unit we walk right out to the beach where our chairs and umbrella are waiting for us every morning. Thank you for the extra chairs, toys and boogie boards in the condo for us to use. We have already put in our request for next year! Can't wait to make this our annual family vacation destination!!
