This beautiful condo can sleep six. The master bedroom has a king bed and sliding glass doors that go onto to your private Gulf front balcony. The master bedroom has a private bath.

No crowds here! The Palms is a 23 unit complex with covered parking. No waiting for elevators, unless you just want to take it.

The Palms is on the peaceful Okaloosa Island, a 3 mile stretch of beachfront condos about 6 miles from Destin, but without the crowds and traffic of Destin. If our calendar does not meet your needs, send me an email about our 1 bedroom at the Breakers.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I could not have been happier with my experience renting from Kathy. She was willing to work with me and my friends, all of whom are under the age of 25. Kathy was very helpful and always prompt in her correspondence. The condo itself was perfect. It had everything we needed and is literally steps from the beach. My friends and I had an amazing time, and I would highly recommend Kathy's condo to anyone. Kathy's condo will certainly be at the top of my list for any future trips to Fort Walton Bea

My husband and I purchased this unit as a second home and hopefully, retire to the beautiful area within the next few years. We have traveled the world and still say this beach has the prettiest white sand ever seen. We would love to have you visit our second home and you too will understand the attraction of the aqua blue waters and fantastic beaches. Come Visit-you won't be disappointed.

Kathy purchased this condo in 2006

Love the area-colors of the water and sand. FWB does not have high rises but still has enough activity for all ages.

Updated furniture, beautiful Gulf Front views, dolphin watching from your balcony

Endless Summer Found!

  • 5 of 5
Hi, Kathy!
Our visit was wonderful and, you are right, it was not long enough. The weather cleared just as we finished unpacking so we were able to enjoy the unusually (?) large breakers that afternoon. The next day (although forecast for 50 % showers) was beautiful and we got to enjoy the water again. We tried the wave surfing but even though the waves were big they weren't quite big enough and the undertow was pretty strong. Thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful aqua green water. It was like being kids again. Didn't see any dolphins but being native Floridians we have seen them before, so not so much a big disappointment for us.
The views from your condo were as spectacular as shown on the website and the beach so close it was like having our own private area. I took a few pictures from the balcony but I don't think they were as good as yours. Enjoyed your condo too. It was so much nicer than staying in a motel. Enjoyed the lack of traffic in that vicinity and the lack of crowds. Enjoyed just hearing the surf and watching the birds. Enjoyed it so much I forgot to watch my standard Wednesday and Thursday night programs on TV. It was just what we needed and even if our visit was short it was a wonderful place to have a mini-vacation.
We loved our dinners in Destin at Fisherman's Wharf and also Hard Rock Cafe (in shopping center behind Bass Pro Shop), both on Hwy 98. It was hard to choose because there were so many neat/delicious sounding restaurants in Destin and Ft. Walton.
Thank you for letting us use it even though I know renting it for only two days was probably an inconvenience for you.
We loved Okaloosa Island so hope to return someday. Thanks again for everything.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
The girls just needed a long weekend to relax and reflect. We found it at Kathy's condo in Fort Walton Beach. We loved the condo. It was the perfect size for us and had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was breathtaking! Although, it rained quite a bit while we were there, we still enjoyed our stay because of the home like feeling of the condo and the view. Kathy was a pleasure to work with! We are already planning our trip next year to the same condo. Thanks, Kathy for sharing your home with us.

6/22/2013 Weekly Stay

  • 3 of 5
Making our annual trip to this area, thought we would stay at a different rental. First time using this owner, making payment arrangements were downright scary. Sending a check made to someone personally almost made us not rent however after talking with owner, we did go ahead and things went well. For location, beach access and beach setup worker, it was 5 star. The ability to get to the beach easily and not drag chairs is under appreciated at times. That is so nice! Love the keyless entry to the condo. Not needing to keep a key is super!!!! Forget your key one time (guilty), you will love the access. If the condo's are at full capacity, parking is tight but not a big issue. Compared to other condos and price, our other stays were better furnished and updated. For the price, the decor needs to be updated. Also, other condos wifi would reach the beach but not this one. Had to use aluminum foil and literally move the router to the deck to get a barely received reception. Important because all of our music is online and if we had to use our phone network to retrieve, it would burn through our batteries. They also put up the chairs and umbrellas early. If you want to stay on the beach after 5pm, you got to go get a your own chair. Thought I was in Mayberry on that one. Overall, we had a great time and will keep this in our rotation.

A special week

  • 5 of 5
Beach is clean and white. Water is clear. View from unit balcony is breath taking. Building and unit are well-maintained. Owner is exceptionally easy to work with. Umbrella and beach chairs are professionally managed. All combined to make our family vacation a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
We visited the Palms over a long Labor Day weekend and arrived around 1:00 pm. The condo was in immaculate condition with cleaning crew just finishing up. We dropped off our bags and headed out for grocerys. We arrived back and everything was ready for our wonderful stay. The King bedroom had plenty of room and it's own bathroom and understand from parents, very comfortable. The twins beds were very nice and clean with a adjoining bathroom. The kitchen was fully stocked, everything very clean. Living room with Oceanview was spectacular and plenty of room to relax and watch the beginning of football season. Access to the internet was a breeze. Location was perfect for either exploring Fort Walton or Destin. Within a mile down the road were some of the best seafood and steak resturants that are a must for any visitor. All in all, this was a very pleasant experience, the condo I would rate 5 out of 5.

Wonderfully relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our weekend at your place in Ft. Walton Beach. The Condo itself was perfect for the four of us with room to spare. The location was great for staying in for the evening or heading to Destin....and having the convenient store right there was very helpful also. We enjoyed ourselves very much and hope to visit again soon!!
