Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Condo was almost entirely remodeled and updated. We kept the best of the previous beach décor and updated with granite, new furniture, paint and upscale lighting. We just replaced the microwave, washer/dryer, and master bedroom TV with new models.

Come enjoy this wonderful two-bed/two-bath condominium located on Okaloosa Island in Ft. Walton Beach Florida. You will feel like you are in your own beach cottage in this colorful first floor condominium. No stairs or elevators to worry with and the beach literally at your back-door. This condominium is spacious and well-appointed.

The wonderful gulf views can be enjoyed from the kitchen, dining, living, master bedroom and patio. The patio is accessible from the living room or master bedroom and has privacy as pedestrian traffic does not walk directly behind condominium. Emerald Towers West is a small quaint gulf front complex featuring a heated pool with sunning area, and a barbeque area. The low density of units in this building ensures ample beach space for all guests.

Do not be fooled by this first floor location. The unit and building are actually elevated one level off the beach to provide a great view without stairs or elevators.

The fenced pool and barbecue area are opposite side from the beach for greater privacy. No 'gawkers' as you enjoy your privacy.

For those who have supported us through the years, we look forward to your return this year as well.

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Love this place!!! Before we even left we were recommending it to friends and family. Emerald Towers West is in the perfect location on the beach. Close to activities but tucked out of the way making for a more private feel. This unit is super clean with an amazing view and is stocked nicely with everything you need. It was comfortable and felt like a home. Definitely a place to come back to.

Love this Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was not only an excellent vacation rental, it felt like our home away from home. Located right on the beach, the beautiful emerald waters greeted us daily with waves lapping against the beach with absolutely gorgeous ocean colors that glistened in the warmth of the sun against the sandy white beaches of Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach. Dolphins swam to greet us as we walked along the beach in our "back yard". We could sit with chair and umbrella and never get tired of the images in the water from beautiful waves, to glassy seas and the sugary sand which was sculpted in different landscapes almost daily at the will of the ocean's activity; not failing to mention the beautiful sunrises and sunsets which draw you out to the outdoors to observe and photograph daily. Coming from a rural area, we thought that staying in a condo on a Florida beach would seem a bit intrusive by the surrounding rentals, but were pleasantly surprised to have the experience of feeling like we were staying in a beach house with our very own private shoreline. The Emerald Towers building is smaller than most we had seen on the island and the permanent residents as well as other condo renters were extremely friendly and helpful while still respecting our privacy. The owners of this condo surpassed all of our expectations from the time we first booked this place until the day we left. If we had any questions or needed anything they were quick to get back to us with a response. Mo and Beverley were very kind and checked frequently to make sure that we were comfortable and made suggestions for places to visit and popular places to eat out. This condo was very well equipped and we didn't want for anything other than beach towels and our personal items. The bedrooms were larger than we had imagined an warmly decorated with sliding door access from the living room as well as the Master bedroom. The pool area was quiet and away from the beach, and just the right size for a quick dip in the mornings. We look forward to coming back many times in the years to come and hope that this condo will be available when we do as we do not feel like we could be as happy anywhere else. At the time of this entry we are already making our plans to return. Thank you owners of 1006 at the ETW.

Mo was great to work with. The condo is located on the first floor and is very clean. We had the best time on our trip to Ft. Walton Beach. The condo is perfectly located, very close to great restaurants but not in a high traffic area, which we loved! The view is breathtaking. Almost every afternoon we watched dolphins swim and play. We will definitely be staying here again!!

Wonderful condo

This is a wonderful condo with spectacular views. Great location with plenty of space, and the kitchen is well stocked with all cooking utensils. The ground floor location is very convenient, while still providing amazing views! The owners are great to work with, very responsive. I would highly recommend this condo, and I would definitely stay here again.

We just loved it!!

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time! The condo was lovely and we were pleasantly surprised that some of the things we normally buy (i.e. liquid soap, laundry detergent) were left by previous renters. It saved us some money. The views were great and we loved being on the ground floor. We will be returning to this property in the future.
