Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

We rent Saturday to Saturday and book solid. You won't forget the breathtaking panoramic views from this fifth floor corner unit with 9 ft ceilings, granite counter tops and a wrap around balcony. You'll love the natural beauty and abundant fun Okaloosa Island has to offer, with it's sugar white sand beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We love that there are no crowds or traffic here (Okaloosa has a seven story building limit) yet you're still close enough to fine restaurants, golf, nightlife, water sports, shopping and endless activities for the kids.

The whole condo has been redone recently with new carpet, paint, King mattress, Living Room furniture, bed linens and more. We are always trying to exceed our guests expectations. If you take a minute and read the reviews you can see that our guests love this place as much as we do.

The master bedroom suite has a king-size bed with 3 large to the floor windows directly overlooking the Gulf with a door out to the balcony and a 32' Flat Screen TV. The master bath has double sinks, a jacuzzi tub, shower and separate commode area.

The Second bedroom has two new twin beds and shares the hall bathroom (with door from bedroom too) and a 20" TV.

The Third bedroom has a new queen size bed, it's own bathroom, TV and a view of the Santa Rosa Sound.

The sofa in the living room opens up to a queen-size bed, supposedly as comfortable as they make them. We also have a love seat & 2 cushioned chairs in the there. Enjoy the 43' flat screen for you to view from there.

If you are familiar with Okaloosa Island we are located between Nautilus and Aqua Villa, behind Tom Thumb. Approximately 1 mile down Santa Rosa Blvd. off Hwy 98.

This is the perfect place to create those life-long family memories, have a romantic get away, or just relax and enjoy the beauty and calming of the beach and maybe see the dolphins that often swim and play in front of the complex.

WE PROVIDE COMPLIMENTARY BEACH SERVICE WHICH INCLUDES AN UMBRELLA AND TWO BEACH CHAIRS PER DAY(Value: $25/day) MARCH THROUGH OCTOBER AND Wireless HIGH SPEED INTERNET ACCESS

Please NO Smoking except on the balcony. Although we love animals, we regret that we cannot accept pets.

Great place for vacationing

  • 5 of 5

Condo is in a great location. The beach was excellent. Condo was very clean! It had lots of extras including beach towels, pots and pans, beach toys, box fan, and many more. The balcony was very spacious for our family of 7. The area has a lot of stuff to do not to mention Destin is just 10 minutes or so down the road. There was an issue with the washer but the owner took care of it immediately and was very pleasant to deal with. She truly cares about taking care of the needs of her renters. She was very gracious and helpful as well when I would contact her with questions. The master bedroom was great. The mattress very comfortable and the room was very soundproof. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this condo to our family and friends. Awesome place!

Love! Love! Love!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (4 adults, 2 teenagers, 1 child) had an amazing stay! Beach was the mildest and clearest we have ever seen at Okaloosa. The condo was the perfect size for our family and was extremely clean and well stocked. Excellent views of the beach and fireworks (Wed pm) from our balcony. Also enjoyed having the small market (Tom Tom) so close - great for quick runs for ice, adult beverages, Icee's for the kids, etc. If you enjoy the waters of Destin / Pensacola but hate the traffic and crowds, this place is ideal. The pool may appear a bit on the small side but don't worry - no one was ever in it, it was perfect size for this condo complex and met the needs of our family a-ok. Rene was also very helpful with booking and was a life saver after our vacation (we left an expensive item behind and she helped facilitate the safe return back to home).

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Glad it was perfect for you. Appreciate the comment about the pool. That is something guests have had concerns about but in 9 years I’ve never seen it crowded either. Hope you get to come back soon. Rene

Great Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We were privileged to stay in this beautiful condo July 14-21, 2018. Sea Dunes is a smaller condo unit (only 24 condos), so it never felt crowded (from the elevator, to parking, to the beach). The view from the wrap around balcony was amazing. The layout of the condo was nice as we were a family of 4 traveling with 3 grandparents. The 3 bedrooms were separated enough to provide individual time as needed but also provided lots of family together time. All of the mattresses were very comfortable, even the sleeper sofa. The beach access was nice because there were no stairs, which made for easier access for our grandparents who have difficulty with negotiating stairs. This was the only condo in this area that did not have stairs for a beach access. The ocean was a beautiful blue/green color and we enjoyed watching dolphins and seeing stingrays, and fish. The water was very gentle and clear for the first few days, but due to storms in the area the waves were a little rougher later in the week.

Rene was very accommodating and it was very easy to communicate with her. She was always very responsive to questions. There were 2 beach chairs and umbrella provided with the condo and extra chairs/umbrella in the condo if needed. It is well stocked with beach towels, and beach toys if needed for the kids, The kitchen is adequately stocked for basic cooking needs.

Overall, we had an enjoyable stay and we were pleased with this condo.

504

  • 5 of 5

504 is extremely nice and well maintained.

The elevator area could be cleaner and some things replaced. The wood deck path to the beach should be maintained better. A longer hose would be nice.

Thanks Kurt

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about Sea Dunes 504. From our conversation I was glad you noticed all the updates and how we try to keep it a step above other units. The association has plans to replace the deck path with a higher one so the sand dunes don't damage it. The elevator area is normally cleaned every morning. I have forwarded your note to the building management. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again on your next beach trip. Rene Platten
