Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4

You’ll love this beautiful, elegant and relaxing beachfront condo. From your private patio with panoramic shoreline view you’ll enjoy the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets on the emerald shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The first floor location opens directly to beach and parking lot -- no struggling up stairs with luggage!!

The fully glassed back opens onto a patio just a few yards from the private Island Sands boardwalk that provides direct access to the sugar sand beach. The interior is professionally decorated, and features original artwork by local artisans.

Panoramic Coast Line View

I'm proud to own a place on these sugar white sandy beaches. In my opinion you will not find more amazing beaches anywhere. There is a vacant lot to the east of the condo tht gives you a 'Panoramic coast Line' view that is unbelievable.

One great thing about staying on Okaloosa Island is that there are fewer condos which mean fewer guests.

I lived here for several years and the traffic is minimal. Destin is only about 5 miles away so you can have convenient access to shopping, dolphin cruises, and fishing excursions.

There is always room at the pool if you perfer quite, since it is for our quests only.

I know you will enjoy this getaway and return every chance you get.

No Hidden Fees: I have priced my condo at a reasonable price and included all taxes and cleaning, so there is no hidden fees.

There is a $200.00 REFUNDABLE deposit to reserve your stay, and that deposit is returned after your stay if there are no damages.

I supply many things such as; beach chairs, umbrella, (2)snorkeling gear, a boogie board, air mattresses, (2) flashlights for ghost crabbing, and several other items.

The kitchen is fully equipped and I also keep such things as baggies, foil, salt, pepper, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and other spices, so you will want to check the condo before going to the store.

Hello all. I currently live in Georgia, but

Darlene Kuykendall purchased this condo in 2006

I spent most of 10 years on the beaches of North Florida, and none compared to 'Okaloosa Island'. When I saw this place, I had to figure out how to have a piece of it. I have live in many state all around the US, but have never seen such an AMAZING place. There are very few places in the United States that have this quality of soft, bright, white sand. You will understand what I mean when you visit. Nowhere compares to these sugar white beaches.

The Condo is directly on the beach, and we have the end unit so you can enjoy a panoramic view with a small yard lush green yard. The condo was professionally decorated with adult taste in mind. I adore the artwork I have from a local artist. The view from the patio is pronominal. You can see the entire coastline right from the patio.

AH-MAZING!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay over 4th of July week was a blast! Not only was the condo BEAUTIFUL and clean, the location was absolutely perfect! Even better than the pictures! Not overcrowded and the beach was right out the back door! I LOVED the decor in the condo! The kitchen was stocked with just about every little extra you could need! Darlene was very nice! Her recommendations of restaurants and things to do were very helpful and greatly appreciated! Plus she she had stacks of brochures and with all sorts of info and coupons! We had a great time! We would definitely recommend this property!

PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful visit. Such a gorgeous location. Very relaxing and peaceful. Everything you need is provided, from beach towels to snorkel gear.
We had a great time at Hog's Breath located in Destin as well as the Dolphin and Shelling cruise by Destin Snorkel.
Highly recommend staying here. We will definitely come back!!

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a week. By far the BEST vacation we have ever had. The condo was immaculate and the location, WOW! We will never go to the Atlantic coast again, the Gulf is a whole new world. The water is crystal clear and the sand is soft and white. The condo is located on a quieter side of the island, there were very few people on the beach even, but on the opposite side of the island by the pier there is plenty to do and see, all very close to the condo. The best of both worlds, and only minutes away from Destin and Fort Walton Beach if your looking for a more touristy experience. To say that the condo was fully stocked is an understatement. Trust me, you don't want for much of anything. Darlene was also easy to communicate with and was very helpful. Would definitely love to stay again.

THE PERFECT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here in celebration of her 40th birthday. She had never seen the ocean in her life and so this was an extra special trip. Let's just say, she was already planning her return after she got there. The condo is perfect, clean, well supplied and just ready for your arrival. Darlene keeps in touch and checks in with you upon your arrival. Very attentive, very easy to communicate with and has just a great space. Being able to walk out onto the beach is by far the best perk, but being an end unit also has many advantages including lots of natural light. We will certainly be returning and are happy to recommend. Thanks Darlene! You helped make a very special time in our lives that much more enjoyable and memorable.

THE ONLY PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
After many years of friends telling me how gorgeous the Emerald Coast was - I finally succumbed. It's a shame I waited so long! Plus, I lucked out with this extraordinary property that was EVERYTHING I was looking for in a small condo.

In this area, it is difficult to find a 1BR/1BA condo on THE FIRST FLOOR. When I saw this one and read about it, I knew it was for me. It was exactly like the pictures (if not better!) and with the little video the owner shot - I was actually able to recognize the building right away from the street. That was a BIG help. Property was super clean and very well maintained.

And the fact that is in Ft Walton Beach and on Okaloosa Island is a bonus! Away from the crowds and the craziness that this area can be in season. I was there off season but I kept imagining how it must be in season and was glad I chose this.

With this condo, clearly the owners took great care in the decoration and the details. I so appreciated the instructions from the owner not to mention that everything is labeled. All the light switches, all the cleaning supplies - that made it so much easier to locate everything. Plus there were books to read and DVDs to watch and the condo has TWO TVs.

Each morning, within 20 steps, I was on the most beautiful beach in Florida. I opted to pay for my beach chair and umbrella each day but the property comes with chairs and umbrella if you want to forego the expense.

Owner was super friendly before, during and after my stay.

I ate out almost every night and one of the best meals was right in FWB at Staff's - so I recommend that one for sure.

My only suggestion to the property owner would be to lock your wireless network and provide a password. It's too easy for hackers to access it when it's unlocked and get into your visitor's stuff. I actually used my own wi-fi hotspot while staying there.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property to everyone. And make your rezzies early because I'm sure it stays occupied.

Okaloosa Island is a long, narrow stretch of land located between Destin and Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. It is a largely undeveloped 4 mile stretch of sugar-white sandy beaches and dunes. In fact, 3/4's of the island is park and government land and is totally undeveloped.

Island Sands Condominiums sits right on one of the most stunning beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Also, Okaloosa Island prohibits condos greater than 6 floors so you can enjoy the less crowed beaches. However, you are only a few miles from The Boardwalk, Okaloosa Island fishing pier, Conference Center, Gulfarium, some of the best restaurants in all of Florida, and only 5 miles from Destin.

Other Activities: The Boardwalk, Okaloosa Island fishing pier, Conference Center, Gulfarium
