ISLAND ECHOS 3BR/3BA - HUGE GULF-FRONT CONDO WITH 32' BALCONY

Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Million dollar view from this 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath penthouse on the beach. May be the best view on Okaloosa Island -- see all the way to Navarre and past the Okaloosa Pier as far as the eye can see toward Destin, just six miles to the east.

This beautiful unit is on the perfect floor to watch the dolphins, seagulls and activity on the beach from the huge 32 foot balcony. Watch the boats on the Intercoastal Waterway and have a front row seat for holiday fireworks from front walkway.

Everything has been renovated and updated. Master suite is a dream ..... separate shower, whirlpool tub, vanity area, large walk-in closet, sliding glass door to balcony.

Kitchen is wonderful with a horseshoe shaped breakfast bar, separate lighted wet bar, ice maker, garbage disposal, fridge with water & ice through the double door, ceramic glass top stove, built-in microwave.

Master bedroom has king-sized bed, one guest room has private bath and a queen-sized bed, another guest room has 2 sets of bunk beds; one with full sized futon underneath. Extra sleeping with new raised queen sized Aero-bed. All with huge closets, television sets, DVD players. Washer and dryer and second refrigerator add to the convenient features.

Island Echos amenities include: seasonally heated Gulf front pool (usually January to mid-March), picnic and barbeque area, shuffleboard court, lighted tennis courts. Best amenity, of course, is the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico with wide, snow-white beach and clear, clean emerald-green water.

This is a wonderful condo, very spacious, with an awesome balcony overlooking the clear emerald-green waters and sugar-white sands of the spectacular Gulf of Mexico.

Island Echos is one of the favorite destinations for families visiting the Emerald Coast. It's a mid-rise with only seven stories. There are plenty of amenities on site, plus all the amenities of Fort Walton Beach and Destin just a few minutes away.

The Non-Smoking condo has recently been renovated and has new furnishings and new appliances. It's decorated in a very pleasing Florida style which is warm and inviting.

The master bedroom has a king bed, large TV, VCR and stereo. The second bedroom has a queen bed, TV & VCR. The third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds -- one with a full futon under, TV & VCR. All bedrooms have spacious bathrooms. In addition, there is a queen sized raised Aero bed for extra sleepers.

The balcony is a pure delight with plenty of lounge chairs and outdoor eating area. The views go on forever in both directions. Watch the dolphins frolic from the balcony.

Hi, Y'all. My name is Angela Parkhurst and I'm fortunate to live in the very area where this condo is located. It's paradise on earth along this Emerald Coast. This makes it easy to manage my rental unit and be quick to resolve any issues (very few so far) that can arise.

I am the proud mother of three boys --- Jason, age 32, a professional photographer who travels all over the world taking photos for such publications as Sports Illustrated and USA Today, Cameron (Jason's twin), who lives in Atlanta and works very successfully in the wonderful world of finance, and Clark, age 29, who lives in Hollywood, CA where he works in the movie industry....he was on the special effects team that produced Academy Award winning 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.' I also am the proud and doting Mom of a Schnoodle named Lulu.

Please come visit us. You'll love the condo and the incomparable view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Angela Parkhurst purchased this condo in 2004

I actually bought the unit and lived in it for three years so it has a lot of upgrades that other units don't have. The Destin/Fort Walton Beach area is one of the most beautiful areas on this earth --- snow white sandy beaches, clear and clean emerald green waters. There's plenty to do with over a hundred golf courses within 50 miles, water parks, wonderful restaurants, snorkeling and scuba diving and fishing beyond compare.

Fabulous area and condo!

We loved it! We took our 3 young children, and another couple with 3 children, and there was so much room for the kids to play and run around. Everything we needed was provided, and great tub to wash the sands off little bottoms (and big ones, too!). The beach is great with soft, white sands so no feet were burning! Area is great and close to necessities. Great running/jogging area. Will return! Thanks so much!

Breath Taking Views....Just What Our Family Needed!!!!

From the moment we walked in, we were blown away by the amazing views of the ocean. The condo was very clean and well decorated. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals and there is a closet full of beach toys, floats, chairs and a beach umbrella. We saw dolphins several times a day from the balcony and on the beach. This condo has plenty of room and we never felt cramped with our family of 6. Angela was also very pleasant to work with and always prompt to return our e-mails. This is definitely a place our family will look forward to returning.

We have vacationed in Fort Walton Beach for several years and this was by far our favorite condo. We had everything we needed and more. The views were amazing from the balcony and the grandkids loved watching the dolphins every morning. Lots of fun places to eat and shop near by. We would recomment the dolphin excursion on the Sea Blaster as well as eating and feeding the aligators at Fudpuckers (both in Destin). Angela was wonderful to work with and we are already looking forward to our next visit !!

We have rented this unit in the past and loved it. We had it booked for this year again for 9-23-10/1 but unfortunatelt had to cancel. Angela was a pleasure to deal with as i the past. She did not haggle or have an attitude due to the fact we had to cancel our reservation and was more than willing and understanding in why we did so. She refund the monies she said she would immediately with in two days. Thank you for your professionalism and promptness. My family and I hope to rent from you again! God bless.

This condo has huge living room, with 3 families we had plenty of room to spread out and sit and watch tv or just goof around. We didn't feel like we were on top of each other at all. Great views from the balcony. We saw dolphins every day. I would recommend this condo to anyone. We did not have any issues at all and the owner was easy to work with. Loved it, we will be back again in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi, Kentucky family. I'm so happy you enjoyed the condo. You were perfect guests and I look forward to having you stay with us again. I don't know if you know this or not, but I was born in Owensboro, KY. I also graduated from Murray State University so I have a particular love for fellow Kentuckians.

Tropical paradise is closer than you think.....it's on Florida's Emerald Coast situated on the Gulf of Mexico. Florida's panhandle has for many years been awarded accolades from many tourist publications including Southern Living. Enjoy the softest, whitest sandy beaches, the clear emerald-green water with plenty of activities to interest vacationers. Within a day's drive from most Southeastern cities, the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area is a popular destination. You'll never be bored with the 28 top ranked golf courses, tennis facilities, fishing, watersports, hiking and biking trails, dolphin watching, nature preserves, historic forts, museums, water parks, incredible restaurants, boutique and bargain shopping. Or, just chill on the uncrowded beaches. It's a great place to vacation year-round -- even winter enjoys nearly 70 degrees of sunshine. The people here are friendly and are happy to extend their 'southern hospitality,' the pace relaxed; most guests are repeat visitors.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, miniature golf, racquet ball, shuffleboard, tennis, restaurants
