About Cherie R
This is our second venture into the condo rental market. Our first unit is larger and within 100 yards of this location. We chose this location because we realize some couples or small families prefer a smaller condo because it fits their needs. In addition, the financial aspect is also good for couples and small families.
Cherie R purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Cherie R chose Ft Walton Beach
This unit is in a smaller complex so there isn't all the noise associated with larger complexes. The beach access walkway is approximately 6o feet from the back door. There is no busy road to cross. This location is ideal for going on day trips to Destin, Pensacola and many other close locations. It is also conveniently located to Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlbert Field. You get the benefit of a great location at a great price. The size of this unit makes for the perfect balance between a mere hotel room and a small apartment. The bedroom and bathroom are separate from the main living area.
What makes this Condo unique
This place will feel like your perfect getaway / hideaway. Once you arrive and have the food and beverages you plan to cook during your stay, you never have to leave. In fact, there is a very nice convenience store, Tom Thumb, less than 60 yards away. The swimming pool is supplied with furniture for lounging around. You get a unit that is practically on the beach, at a much lower price.

Great Location / Easy Beach Access
Nice, updated, comfortable 1 Bedroom apartment on ground floor. Great if you need accommodations that do not have stairs. A minute and a half walk to the beach. Beach service included is a BIG plus! Easy parking and was very quiet even though next door to Tom Thumb market. Would stay here again.
This place was great.
We loved being so close to the beach. It was great to have a back patio to sit on and listen to the ocean at night. They only thing that I didn’t like was the grill. Someone had used it as a giant ashtray which was not the owners fault as it was a community grill. We bought ourselves a $20 portable grill and everything was great. This condo is so close to everything. Destin was a very short drive. We loved going to the beach everyday. We will be back 😊.
I stayed here a month, and at times it was unbearable. This is a very small, first floor condo, more like a motel room. The walls are very thin and you can hear everything that your neighbors do or say. The Palms condos behind this complex had heavy carpentry/construction going on that started at 8am - no sleeping in on those days. The headboard of the bed is under the window that looks out at the Palms. The windows are impossible to open to get any fresh air into the unit. The bathroom is very small, too small for 2 people to fit in at the same time. You can hear the next door neighbor coughing so you know they can hear you use the bathroom! The laundry room was a big disappointment - no hot or warm water to wash your clothes with, but you pay the same price to use the coin machines. This place is more suited for fishermen or people who spend all their time outside and just need a place to sleep (hah), bath, and cook a simple meal.
We are sorry you did not enjoy our condo. It seems that most of your issues are not with the unit itself, but with the environment.
The building was originally built as a hotel. As such, there isn't much that can be done about the layout.
As for the work at The Palms, that is beyond our control. Giving a lower rating due to this is punishing the owner for something we cannot change. Most complexes have maintenance performed during the off season, as is the case with The Palms.
We had not had any complaints about the windows. We will have to have that checked out.
Your comment about the laundry facilities will be passed on to the appropriate people to be addressed.
We wish you had contacted us to express your displeasure. We would have been happy to refund you so you could find another place. We do not want our guests to be unhappy with our accommodations. We take pride in providing a comfortable environment for our guests, and want our guests to let us know if something is not to their liking.
Clean, well maintained, convenient
We have stayed in two other units in Tropical Isle this was our favorite. As always so close to beach. Tom Thumb right next door. Plenty of convenient places to eat and things to do. Can't wait to come back next year.
Great place by the beach!
We had a great time and loved being so close to the beach! It's the perfect beach get away! The condo is spacious and clean. We would love to come back one day!
Less than 2 miles away is the main strip of Fort Walton Beach that comes alive at night. There are restaurants, bars, shops, fitness centers and a movie theater. Destin is approximately 5 miles east and has a large number of restaurants and shopping. A little further east is a large outlet outdoor mall with many of your favorite brands.
