About Pat Okenica

My husband, Ed & I currently live in Georgia and have been visiting this area for 35 years! We own and operate our own real estate firm at Lake Oconee, which is located 70 miles east of Atlanta, Ga. Old enough to retire, but not ready to give up the 'game'! We have the best of all worlds....living and working on a beautiful 19,000 acre lake in Georgia & owning a special getaway place on Okaloosa Island! We manage it ourselves and it's always very clean and neat. And, of course, the view of the Gulf is like no other!! We would love to share it with you! Please give us a call sometime and we'll tell you all about it!

Pat Okenica purchased this condo in 2004

Why Pat Okenica chose Okaloosa Island

Emerald green waters, pristine beaches, away from everything, but close driving distance to it all. Stunning sunset views. No impersonal high rise buildings! Need we say more?

What makes this condo unique

Small Complex, 27 units - 100 feet from the beach - Corner/end unit with it's own private entrance. Extra window in living area enhances the views and the brightness in the rooms, not to mention the view! Sitting on the balcony makes you feel like you could 'reach out and touch the water'. Dolphins playing and Pelicans swooping in for their 'catch of the day'. Convenient to shopping, restaurants & entertainment, yet away from the crowds & traffic. It's a dream come true!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Pat,

I can not begin to express what a wonderful time we had at your condo.

We LOVED the decorating and all of the touches of home that you just don't get with a timeshare or from a vacation rental property. We all agreed it was the best beach we have ever been to and we have visited quite a few.

The location was SO perfect. I am sure you have heard this numerous times but the balcony and the view made it 5 stars for us. When we weren't sitting at the beach or playing in the ocean, we were sitting on the balcony enjoying the lovely view or just listening to the waves at night.

It was so peaceful! We will be back. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

quiet, beautiful, clean, and fun

  • 5 of 5

This is the quintessential beach vacation! It feels like a beach cottage, not at all like staying in the bigger condos. The view from the balcony is gorgeous, an unobstructed view of the sand and water, and all you hear is the waves crashing. There is a nice breeze. The pool is kept really nice - not overly chlorinated probably because it's not constantly crowded with people. The condo has all the amenities you need, a full kitchen, and a comfortable bed. Decorations are beachy and cute.

I loved staying here.

Great R&R!

My husband and I very much enjoyed a relaxing getaway the last week of February at this very comfortable clean condo. The weather was cool but sunny the entire time. The view is wonderful and the sunsets stunning! Lots of good restaurants within a mile or two. We definitely want to return!

Clean property with great views!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is updated and very clean! Bathrooms, carpets and whole place is updated to beach theme. The views from the balcony are perfect! In January you can see sunrise and sunset from the balcony. You are just a stones throw from the beach. Pay is perfect with her communication and helpfulness. I would highly recommend this property. We will definitely be returning!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a lot of condos for vacation in this area, this unit was AWESOME and our favorite thus far! Pat was great to work with and everything you could think of was available at the condo. We are actually looking at our calendars to book again! The view from the deck was incredible, saw dolphins every day - We did not want to come home. Looking forward to our next stay!!

Great week at Pat's Island Sands

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great week at Pat's condo. Very spacious and had everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. We loved the balcony and the beachfront location. The white sands of Ft. Walton and Destin will definitely bring us back. Favorite restaurant was the Crab Trap.

Could not ask for better!

  • 5 of 5

This is a little slice of heaven on earth. This cozy condo is not huge and impersonal, but a smaller unit only having 27 units total. It feels like home! This gem is on the third floor and located right on the beach, with a beautiful balcony that overlooks the ocean. It's breathtaking! Everything is provided so you want for nothing. There is a fully furnished kitchen; you only need to provide the groceries. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit. The owner even provides beach chairs, an umbrella, and beach toys. All that is left is to walk downstairs and onto the beach. And if anything is needed, the owner is just a phone call or email away. I highly recommend staying here. I have visited the past two years with my family for a week-long stay each time, and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else.
