***BEACHFRONT/OCEANFRONT UPDATED PARADISE!***

Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to paradise!

This beautiful condo's open floor plan provides stunning beach and Gulf views from practically every room. This unit is beach front/ocean front and the view is as good as it gets.

Just renovated in 2012 with new cork flooring, cabinets, granite counter tops, paint, linens and furniture. New furniture includes a cozy couch (which includes a queen sleeper with new mattress) - open the patio doors, feel the gulf breeze and you can sink right into a nap on the beach!

The kitchen has just been beautifully remodeled and contains everything you will need for your stay - from a dishwasher and ice maker, to dishes, cookware, coffee maker and blender.

The bedroom also has an oceanfront view and opens to the beautiful beachfront balcony. It has a king size bed (with new memory foam mattress!), two dressers and two large closets - plenty of room to stay a while! There is also a master bath with dual sinks and a bathtub/shower shower to wash off after some fun at the beach!

The beachfront covered patio provides additional living space and allows you to enjoy the Florida lifestyle, with 2 lounging chairs and a dining table with 2 chairs.

Other features include a washer and dryer, AC & heating system.

This condo is a beach-lover's dream!

The Nautilus offers a heated swimming pool, BBQ area and private beach access. The on-site management and maintenance is top-notch.

The location of this unit (second floor) is absolutely ideal and places you feeling like you are sitting on the beach with not a single obstruction. A walk out the door and one flight of stairs takes you to the pool and the walkway to the beach. Located in the heart of Okaloosa Island, this condo is close to shopping and fantastic restaurants.

Do NOT be fooled by those advertising their units as beachfront, when in actuality, they are on the side of the building with just an ocean view, or have an obstruction to the view - such as a pool or parking. This unit is ocean and beach front, on the second floor of the building which is above the dunes and is practically sitting on the beach. There is nothing obstructing your view here...It's perfect!

Check in time is 4:00 pm and check out is 10:00 am. Be sure to mention unit #1202 when booking.

My brother, sister and I own the property. It has been in our family since the 90's. We all live in different corners of the US, but we love coming to Fort Walton Beach. It has retained a special place in our hearts.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Our family has owned condos at the Nautilus for over 2 decades and we have been coming here for most of our lives. It has the most beautiful beaches and ocean water in the United States. The rates are fabulous for vacation renters and the on-site management and maintenance is top notch.

We hope that others can make the same wonderful family memories as we have been able to - guaranteed to continue for generations to come.

The location of unit #1202 is absolutely the best. The view is ideal - it feels like you are literally sitting on the beautiful powder white sands, staring at the turquoise waters. A step right outside the front door leads you down just one flight of stairs directly to the pool, and just around the corner to the beach walkway. You can't get much closer or a better view than this. It is literally just steps out the door.

The pool is crystal clear and heated, making it perfect for a morning, afternoon, or evening swim.

The grilling area is very nice with two charcoal grills, and even a fresh herb garden for guest's usage.

FREE beach service from March 1st to October 31st! (does not apply to monthly rentals)

Professionally managed by Nautilus Condominiums (on-site).

It is also incredibly convenient to have a Tom Thumb mini grocery just next door for any needed food, drinks, toiletries, etc.

The condo office is happy to supply our guests with pool toys, movies and books!

We love to take daily morning walks on the beach and look for seashells.

The sunsets are absolutely phenomenal and cannot be beat! Be sure not to miss a single one!

OUR VACATION

  • 3 of 5
The condo was lovely and beautifully decorated. The toilet in the guest bathroom, however was broken and both bathrooms could surely stand for some updating. The other issue was that both my husband and I have back issues and the mattress was so worn in that it felt like we were rolling off either side every time we laid down. Needless to say we had a few sleep on the couch nights. While being on the 2nd floor had a great view of the beach, there was little privacy because everyone on the beach could see right in our windows. Next time I think we'll opt to stay a little higher. I don't think we got our money's worth considering the massive amount that we paid. The facility itself was wonderfully maintained and the beach service was great. The staff were all very friendly as well. I would love to stay here again, just maybe a different condo.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you enjoyed our beautiful new furnishings and renovations. We had an almost top to bottom renovation and remodel done in 2012/13.
I hope that you contacted the office for prompt repair of the toilet issue. I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the mattress. It is certainly not worn, as it is a brand new memory foam mattress that we purchased last winter. If you sit on the very edge of the mattress, it does sink in a bit because it is made of foam. It does not have the same hard edges that are on spring mattresses. We picked this mattress because it has 5 star reviews on both Amazon and Overstock and is actually raved about by those with back pain. But I suppose, as with any mattress type, memory foam must not be for everyone.
As far as the location of the unit and people seeing in - it is a beachfront unit. Anyone on the beach can certainly see into ANY unit at night if the lights are on in the unit and someone is looking in from afar on the beach. That is what the curtains are for - in any home. No one can see in during the day. The closest anyone can even get to the unit is maybe 25 feet, due to the dunes.
The double vanity in the master bath has had updating as has the half bath. We do plan a fresh coat of paint in the shower and half bath and new fixtures in the tub this winter - this will complete the renovation.
So glad you enjoyed our complex and staff - they truly are top notch! Glad you had a nice vacation - hope to see you again soon and thanks for staying with us.

HAPPY HONEYMOONERS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed a week at Nautilus for our honeymoon. This place is great! The view of the gulf is priceless! The condo was very clean and bright just as the photos reflect.
Free beach service is a nice bonus as weekly beach service rental is about $150. Also we were able to rent paddle boards and kayaks for a fair price right in front of the Nautilus. While paddle boarding we saw dolphins, crabs, sting-rays, jelly-fish, and lots and lots of fish.
Okaloosa Island has a lot to offer as far as nightlife and restaurants. Sealand is only a few miles away, we had delicious food with fast friendly service. I would definitely recommend to stop there for dinner.
And beautiful six mile drive away is Destin where you can find malls and many more restaurants (The Back Porch and Boshamps were our favorites)
We had a very memorable week and plan on coming back again next year!
Thanks for the great place to stay on the beach!

AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had such a wonderful time. Thank you for allowing us to use the condo. It was exactly as you portrayed. It was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was great especially being on the second floor - easy stair access. The umbrellas and chairs were out first thing in the morning. Next time we'll bring some extras for the later evening beach time since they pick them up around 5. Definitely more relaxed and family-oriented than the busy Destin area. We ate at the Fisherman's Wharf in Destin and enjoyed the harbor activity. Maybe we'll rent a boat next go around. Thank you again.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that you had such a wonderful vacation Robert and Erin! Thank you so much for staying with us! We previously had two extra beach chairs in the entryway closet for guests' usage, but we had to throw one away in May - it was past its prime! Your review reminded me that we needed to get that one replaced and the other could probably use a replacement. So we have ordered two new beach chairs. I hope that you can come back again and your evening beach chairs will be waiting for you! :) Thanks again for staying with us!

CLOSEST AND EASIEST ACCESS TO BEACH!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Okaloosa Island........but not our last!....... From the minute we walked into your condo we knew it was going to be a great week! The view of the beach is breathtaking! We were very impressed by how clean and updated your condo was. The access to the pool and beach was very easy. We were out on the beach each day by 7:30 with our complimentary chairs and umbrella set up for us. We have stayed in condos in the past where the beach service wasn't quite so efficient. The beach service guy was setting up by 6:30 each morning. Being the beach lover's we are, we took advantage of it each day! It never was crowded and was more family oriented. Checking into our condo was fast and the staff was very friendly.The property grounds were well maintained. I'm glad we chose to stay in your condo at the Nautilus!!

Owner's Response: I am so glad to hear that you had such a wonderful vacation! Thank you so much for staying and for the wonderful review. The beach service IS great and I am glad that you were able to take advantage. I may be biased, but I do think we have the best beach around - like you said, it is not crowded and is family oriented, which makes for a truly relaxing and enjoyable vacation - just how they should be! Hope you get to come back again soon and thanks again! :)

PERFECT BEACH GET AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The condo was great everything you need in the kitchen and very clean. The view from the balcony picture perfect. Very easy beach access, out the door, down 1 flight of stairs (or use the elevator) and your at the pool or the beach access boardwalk. Would definitely rent this condo again.
