About Lisa Sorensen

We are married 25 years and have 3 children. We live in Slidell, Louisiana which is about 30 minutes from New Orleans. We enjoy fishing and relaxing on the beach.

Lisa Sorensen purchased this condo in 2016

Why Lisa Sorensen chose Ft Walton Beach

We recently purchased this condo because we LOVE the beach!!!! We chose this property for the close 3 1/2 hour drive from our home and the view! The city of Fort Walton has so many shops and restaurants, groceries, Walmart, Sams, we just love the convenience without all the crowds and traffic.

What makes this condo unique

Fort Walton is more quiet and relaxed than Destin and Panama City, with no buildings over 7 stories and the city grooms and maintains the beaches daily! The beaches are white powder and the water is a beautiful emerald green and blue!

508 Emerald Isle did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our condo with it’s beautiful view of the Gulf. Watching the dolphins on the balcony in the morning was a treat. The beach chair service is a plus, and the pool is decent, albeit noisy, with a million little kids. The condo is appointed with most everything we needed, clean, and comfortable. The grounds and facilities are well maintained. Okaloosa Island is perfect- close to amenities but also located away from the traffic of Destin. We love it and hope to return.

First class place

  • 5 of 5

A hidden gem in FWB. Terrific view of ocean, condo was extremely clean, updated, comfy, & was as advertised. Kids loved the pool just as much as the ocean. Lisa was very attentive and responsive & had great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. I would highly recommend this to any family wanting a get away from reality to relax. My only negative thing to say about the place is I don't own one myself!!! We will definitely be back next year-- and our attitude is 508 or nothing!! Thanks for allowing us to stay and make memories our kids will be talking about for years to come.

All the best,

Very well appointed home. Super comfortable beds and very accommodating owners.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful experience. Beautiful view, heated pool, the beach is just steps away and the home is very comfortably furnished. Really nice beds and linens. The kitchen was so well appointed that we were able to cook Thanksgiving dinner without having to buy much at all. Lisa is an extremely gracious and accommodating owner. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We haven’t had anyone cook a Thanksgiving meal in our condo and that is so exciting to hear! I’m glad you loved your stay and hope you’ll stay with us again! Thank you for the wonderful review! Thank you, Lisa

Great condo in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Gulf Coast (family of 2 adults + a 6 & 4 year old). We were very impressed with the beaches and the food. The condo was clean and quiet and in a fantastic location. It was set up so nicely - with the master and living room TV separated from the second bedroom. We loved that our kids could play in the ocean safely. We hope to be back very soon maybe with extended family as well!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having your family stay at our condo. I am so happy you had great weather and could really experience the beautiful beaches. I hope you’ll miss the food and come stay with us again next summer! Lol Thank you!

fall break

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated and very clean. The pool area was very nice, pool bathrooms were clean and everyone was friendly and helpful. I was disappointed that our beachfront was set back behind a parking lot-- between 2 buildings, which we didn't realize. Even though we could see the beach straight ahead, we didn't have a full beach view. Washer and dryer was in a separate area outside and you had to pay to use them. Overall, we had a great week.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. It is shown in the pictures exactly how the condo sits. There is a vacant lot which is a dune in front of us and a fire lane area, which no one is allowed to park in. It is dead space that doesn't interfere with seeing a huge area of the beach. Emerald Isle condominium is shaped like an L, so that is what you are seeing to the left of you. We have brand new washers and dryers that are coin and credit card operated located right by our unit, that as well is in the description. I am glad you stayed with us and enjoyed our gorgeous beach and beautiful water! Thanks for the kind review!
