About Rebecca & Patrick

My family and I love to travel. Our favorite location is the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area, it just keeps calling us back. With a family in mind, we understand the need for comfort, style, and mostly... affordability. Happy traveling!

Rebecca & Patrick purchased this Condo in 2015

Why Rebecca & Patrick chose Fort Walton Beach

We chose this property because we were looking for something near everything but wanted a more secluded feel. We purchased in 2015 and after a complete 10 month long renovation, redesign, and rebuild - we couldn't be happier. The exterior of the building has era charm but the interior is state of the art. The complex is on waterfront property, less than forty steps from the unit and you have an unobstructed view. The unit itself has a limited water view on one side and full pool view on the other side. It truly a unique find and we are sure you'll love it as much as we do.

What makes this Condo unique

Its all about the water. You just cant beat waterfront property. We love to watch the dolphins and birds, it is so peaceful.

                                                                      Rebecca was immediately available and answered all questions. Mid month cleaning was done. Beds were comfortable. All cooking utensils and spices were available for use. Wonderful to have washer and dryer so that towels and clothes could be done daily.

                                                                      Could've been better

                                                                      Jodie L.Lafayette, LA

                                                                      Can't beat the price, furnishings, tv, comfort of beds. Definitely could've been cleaner with a cleaning fee, could've been safer with the windows closed and locked when we arrived. I imagine the housekeeper is under 5'5" because the fixtures above that were caked in dust. We also had to Clorox the bathroom door because it was disgusting, much like the bathroom drawers and cabinet (that we didn't bother complaining about because we didn't use them.) we arrived around midnight, ready to rest after a 6 hour drive and 3 of the windows weren't locked and one couldn't lock and even had a stick to block it. Not terrible except that the stick was too short and the windows could have been opened enough to remove the stick. So, we texted and told Rebecca about the dust issue and the window we couldn't get to lock but wedged shut for the night. No problem, she got the cleaning lady to go check it out and a window guy to fix the window. Then she proceeded to text me about how Ft. walton is known for its dust and that some people are just difficult to please. My husband has asthma. Not acceptable. I took pictures of the dust and the door and bathroom drawers (never sent her those bc I was curious to see if the cleaning lady would clean them on her second visit... nope). About the window, after I thanked her for fixing that too, she dropped in a text how expensive it is to get her window guy to go out when it was a matter of us not knowing how to lock a window. Then later tried to make nice by admitting the window guy told her to replace those windows soon. Perhaps they should check the windows before new guests arrive so they feel safe. Even though the condo was inexpensive, cleanliness and safety should certainly be expected. If all that hadn't happened, it probably would have been great. It does need attention to fix the hole in the hall wall (should have been repaired with a guest's security deposit) or the cracked and sagging ceiling over the top bunk bed. We didn't dare say anything else after the rude texts and after reading another guest's story of being escorted out by police. We just wanted to enjoy our weekend. The ice maker stopped working on day 2 of our 5 day stay, but it's probably because we just don't know how to operate an ice maker.

                                                                      Very clean and spacious living area.

                                                                      Lee S.

                                                                      When I arrived, I didn't have my access code because I didn't have access to my email when it was sent, so I looked up the owner's number on my Homeaway app and gave them a call. Instant answer, and they didn't even mind giving me the code. Being able to contact the owners was a nice surprise.

                                                                      As I walked through the door I noticed that the place was super clean. The kitchen that I walked into was small but very well designed. It didn't feel small, and there was plenty of room to move about. From the kitchen, there is an open living area combining the dining and living room that gives a sense of spaciousness, and it has a very comfortable couch. The air conditioner and ceiling fans all worked great! The beds and pillows were also very comfortable. The bedroom remote that controlled the ceiling light and fan was a nice touch. The only thing I would have added was a roll of paper towels. That would have been handy when we walked in, (and any traveler worth his salt should already have some) but that was a minor inconvenience that was soon remedied. This was the perfect property for me, comfortable, air conditioned, close to everything in town and bug free. My enjoyment meter says Five stars.

                                                                      I am glad you called to gain access - we try to always be available to our guests. All in all, you were great guests and truly a pleasure. Thanks for staying at The Sand Dollar Villa - we apprieciate you and would love to have you anytime. Safe and happy travels.

                                                                      My family enjoyed the trip. The condo was clean, and bright. It is in an older complex, but in a good location, and fairly close to the Okaloosa island. The beds were very comfortable, and they had updated appliances. There is a pool, but we didn't get to use it.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thomas G.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

The description on the site and on the map is accurate and did not claim that it was beachfront. All in all, I am glad that you had a great time and enjoyed the amenities. Best wishes.

                                                                      Last minute vacation

We had our four kids ages 2 through 18 and the condo was roomy and spacious for all of us. Fully stocked kitchen made it easy to plan meals and we were close to everywhere we wanted to go. It was our first time staying in Fort Walton and we'd stay again.
