OKALOOSA PARADISE AT BLUE DOLPHIN WITH BEACH SERVICE

Fort Walton Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Direct Gulf-Front. This property has been featured in two magazines. The Blue Dolphin is the ultimate Ft Walton Beach/Destin get-away. The Blue Dolphin was completed in July 2002. There are only ten units in the complex which results in an uncrowded elevator, pool, and beach. Our third floor, Gulf-front unit offers breathtaking views from all angles of the condominium.

The unit is not just a 15' box with a balcony, like many units. It is a 'Platinum' rated beach front condo with a wall of windows and a glass-hinged door instead of an unattractive sliding glass door.This well-appointed condo features ten-foot ceilings, granite countertops, tile throughout, private Gulf-front pool, and covered parking. Our condo feels more like a home than a beach condo. The beds have 4' memory foam toppers. The living room has a plush sofa and love seat plus a rocker/recliner. The unit is over 1250 square feet with a 25-foot private Gulf-front balcony.

The unit is fully furnished and professionally decorated with washer and dryer as well as a fully-stocked kitchen. Wi-Fi password protected access in unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved the fact that the condo is part of a smaller unit and right on the beach. We also loved the location; close enough to Destin with all the activities, restaurants, etc, but far enough away to be relaxing and peaceful. This was our first time on the "Emerald Coast" and it was a great trip. We hope to return soon.

Hi There! We're Johnny and Leslie and are excited to offer our condo for rent. We have wanted a condo on the beach for years, and are thrilled to own this Blue Dolphin condo. We hope you are able to visit and return for years to come. It's a great place to vacation! Come check it out!

Johnny or Leslie Johnson purchased this condo in 2011

We love Ft. Walton because it is only 3.5 hour drive from home and you are at the most beautiful beach in the world. The sand is white as snow and the water is emerald green. One of our favorite places is on Crab Island with the tide rolling in as boaters and jet skiers congregate in the warm sun. On the weekends in summer there are food venders, music, and activities.

BEST PLACE ON THE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
We've been going to Destin/FWB for over 12 years now, and I have to say this was the best place we've ever stayed. The condo is fabulous (just look at the pictures), and Leslie and John were great to work with. I'm hoping to rent from them again this time next year as well. The worst thing about it was that the week went by way too fast.

AS GOOD AS DESCRIBED

  • 5 of 5
This unit was excellent! Very spacious. Very convenient to get to the beach. The chair service was great! It really reduced how much stuff you had to carry back and forth to the beach.

The owner's were very good. They did a great job of communicating, gave good recommendations for activities and restaurants, and returned our deposit within a couple days of our departure.

If we travel to the Destin/Fort Walton Beach area again, we would definitely want to return to this condo.

BLUE DOLPHIN 302

  • 4 of 5
The Blue Dolphin was a great condo complex to stay in. We were in unit 302 which was beautiful and very comfortable. We had not been to the northern coast of Florida and after arriving I thought that perhaps we would have enjoyed Destin better, but after a day on Okaloosa Island we changed our minds. It was great. It was easy enough to get to all the other "stuff" and the Blue Dolphin with only 10 units is more private and you are not overun with people at every turn. We would definitely recommend this place and go back ourselves!

BEAUTIFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
If you would like a wonderful vacation this is the condo to mark on your bucket list. Leslie and John were wonderful to work with. We had 4 adults and 3 children in our party and the condo was perfect. Bunk beds in hall are fabulous for kids. View is amazing and we saw dolphins everyday we were there. It was like they put on a show in front of the condo for us each morning. Chairs and umbrella was out each morning by 7:00 am. Condo was well decorated and the housekeeping is superb. We hope to make this a yearly tradition and would give it a 10+ on the scale. Activities and restaurants are all close by. You have everything you could possibly need at hand.

GREAT CONDO! GREAT VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 spent the last week in May on Okaloosa Island. The Johnson's condo was perfect! There was plenty of room, uncrowded beach, and unbelievable ocean views. We ate local and attended the Billy Bolegs Festival -even watched the fireworks from the front of the condo! It was one of our most relaxing vacations! We will be back soon!

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our two young children (ages 6 and 3) and had a fantastic time. The condo is wonderful - we rarely closed the door leading outside because it was a beautiful view and listening to the surf was great! The beach service was very convenient and the pool was HEATED!! The two bedrooms in the condo are far away from one another, which makes it nice for two small families, two couples, or a family with older kids. Our kids loved the bunkbeds in the hallway! Very well-appointed unit - very clean and comfortable we'll be back! The location on Okalossa Island is also fantastic - away from the commotion of Destin proper!
