About John & Linda Doyle

We are semi-retired and have been vacationing on Okaloosa Island and the Emerald Isle Complex for a number of years now. We live in Oak Ridge, TN where we raised our family of three children. We love the water and have vacationed for years at both Pawley's Island, SC and here in FWB. We are very happy with our decision to purchase our Condo here on Okaloosa Island.

John & Linda Doyle purchased this condo in 2009

Why John & Linda Doyle chose Okaloosa Island

We have been coming to this Condominium Complex for a number of years and fell in love with both the location and the FWB area. We found this unit was available in 2009 and proceeded to purchase it. We have not been disappointed, it is a wonderful place for vacations.

What makes this condo unique

The Condo is a top floor unit with breathtaking gulf views from the living room,dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. The Santa Rosa Sound, an inter-coastal waterway is viewed from both the kitchen and guest bedroom windows. The white sandy beach and turquoise waters of the Gulf along with brilliant skies make for a perfect vacation home for us. We have completely refurbished and refurnished the unit which complements the location and views. We think you too will fall in love with our Condo during your vacation stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed very much our stay at your condo. The weather has been wonderful. Our daughter loves playing on the beach. We can't wait to come back again next year.

Well deserved rest

  • 5 of 5
The stay was breathtaking and enchanting!!! An incredible view of the beach from the 7th floor welcomes the visitor the minute they walk in and immediately puts them in a relaxing state of mind. If you want to walk the beach in the morning for a beautiful sunrise or be captivated by an end of day sunset it’s just a short walk across the parking lot. The condo itself had all the comforts and conveniences of home without all the cares and worries. The location was also an excellent jumping off point for those who want to explore all that the area has to offer. My wife and I had a wonderful stay and would recommend the pristine beaches that go along with this pristine condo to anyone.

Anniversary and Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are beach people and loved our stay at this beachfront condo. The view from the balcony, the living room, and bedroom are simply majestic. We watched several sunsets from the beach but they were just as beautiful from the balcony. The ability to relax and enjoy our vacation and the celebration of our 33rd wedding anniversary was enhanced by the lovely beach décor and amenities available in the condo. The condo has a fully equipped kitchen and is open to the living/dining area. This allowed us to cook meals while looking out over the Gulf. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and comfortable. Additionally, when we weren't sitting or strolling at the beach we were in close proximity to restaurants, shopping and other sight seeing locations. Okaloosa Island is a natural beach habitat and is more clean and pristine a vacation location than most we have ever visited. We will return again and again and intend to stay in this condominium. We truly felt at home and comfortable in the condo and recommend it highly as a favorite place to stay.

Pretty and comfortable beach view condo

  • 4 of 5
This is a beautifully updated condo in a quiet part of Okaloosa Island. The pool and beach area are very nice. We were disappointed to find that our condo faced the beach, but was not directly on the beach. There was only one working elevator and that was located the farthest from our rental as possible. However, we enjoyed our stay and condo was otherwise as stated.

Owner's Response: Dear Marcia,
We are delighted that you enjoyed our condo home, the quiet location, the pool and pool area.
We were also very disappointed to we learn that a storm knocked out the control on the elevator cab, right next to our unit causing a temporary closing of the elevator. Unfortunately it was not back in operation until right after you left. The new elevator, also became operative that next week. While the storm was out of our control we do understand the frustration and sincerely we could have avoided the inconvenience caused for you.
Concerning the beach front perspective, our experience has been, since we first entered our condo is this: the parking lot ( which is part of the condo property, between us and the beach) does not interfere with the beautiful view and sound of the gulf which can be seen, heard & enjoyed,immediately upon entering the unit and throughout the kitchen, DR and LR. We find that there are many beach front properties where the walk is that same distance or further when & if the house sits back on the property. We wish this had not been a disappointment for you.
We do appreciate your comments, thought , review and your taking the time to write your thoughts and feelings. We hope you will consider visiting our condo again.

A Wonderful Condo, Very Peaceful We had a Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. The beach is right in front of the condo and we loved having meals while watching the waves role in. The unit is very clean and newly decorated in "at the beach" fashion - very nice. Also the kitchen and appliances are new and you have plenty of good dishes, cookware, spices, etc. The owners really make an effort to make you feel at home. It had the feel of a friends place rather than just a rental unit. They have left a binder with info on favorite restaurants, things to do, things to see, etc. The condo is in a quieter, mainly residential area on Okaloosa Island, but is just minutes from good restaurants and the heart of old Fort Walton. We had a great vacation here and would recommend this condo to everyone!

Owner's Response: Jim & Melanie,
Thank you for your lovely, detailed review. We are so glad you enjoyed our condo and found it to be like a" friend's home " rather than a "rental unit." It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. You described our hopes for guests of our "home away from Home". It is heartening to have those hopes realized by you, our guests. You have been such gracious and appreciative guests. We are fortunate to have you vacation in our condo. We, like you, love the peacefulness , the sound of the waves, the cheerful colors. We love Ft Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island.

A great time at Emerald Isle!

  • 5 of 5
Jack and Linda have created a wonderful environment for an Okaloosa Island getaway. The condo was very clean, with an up-to-date, fully stocked kitchen, new bathrooms, lovely "breezy" furnishings and decor, comfortable beds, books and movies, a beautiful view of the Gulf - everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay. Gorgeous, not-too-crowded beach, tennis courts and pool all added to the experience. We would definitely come again!
