Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2br/2bath Gulf front, ground floor condo with a view. Private balcony opens to master br and living room, wifi, private laundry, flat screen tv, seasonally heated pool, tile and vinyl throughout. We challenge you to find any condo closer to the beach than this!!!

This unique southeast corner unit, two bedroom condo is about 6 feet above the sand, and about 20 feet from it. The living room has two walls of windows, and from the balcony one can see miles up the beach in either direction! You can even see, smell and hear the surf while lying in your king size master bed! Due to the unique design of this building which places you well above the sand for a great view of the beach, your front door remains at parking level, so you won't have to climb any stairs or wait on any elevators.

This unit also comes with high speed internet, free beach service, an inside washer/dryer, a bbq area and a heated pool. It is directly on the sugar white beach of Okaloosa Island, which is between Fort Walton Beach and Destin.

My husband and I live in Austin, Texas, with our two daughters. We vacationed on Okaloosa Island a few years ago and just fell in love with the area and wanted to make a small piece of this beautiful beach area our own. We have not seen any other beaches as gorgeous as this. The beauty of the Gulf takes your breath away. It is the perfect place for some R&R.

Jean Steensma purchased this condo in 2007

We selected this particular vacation home because of its size, location, and accessibility. It is a small to medium size building so the beach is never crowded. There is plenty of space to spread out. It is located right on the gulf and you never feel overcrowded. The building is set up high, so even though we have all the convenience and accessibility of being on the first floor, we have a tremendous, breathtaking view. We have a physically disabled daughter and the accessibility of this vacation home makes it easy to use with her. The beach crossover is located adjacent to us, making beach access very convenient and only a very short walk.

Great view from a ground floor vacation home because the building is set up high. Convenient, easy access to the beach, very close to the beach walkover. Convenient, right-at-your-door parking. Good location for those that cannot walk a long distance to the beach or the vacation home. Right on the Gulf! If you got any closer, you would be in the water! Total view sunrise-to-sunset from the wrap around balcony, living room and master bedroom.

Just as described, perfect for our family of 4 stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
First, the owner was very friendly and helpful when ever i needed help before our stay. Second, the unit itself was perfect for what we wanted. We were two adults and two kids 5.5 and 3.5 and we all were happy our entire stay. The unit was clean and included all we really needed. The view from the balcony was fantastic and the beach was always clean, beautiful and the umbrella service(and service guy Cody) was great!! the sand toys in the closet were a huge help in keeping our kids happy too. I also liked that this location is really quiet compared to the Destin beaches we visited. Some days the water was really full of algae or seaweed of some kind and that was a bummer, but we had a couple really clear days too....what can you do about mother nature? :) Also, we loved that this unit is so close to the beach, the closest there is really. It was no biggie to pop in the unit if we forgot something or went back for quick lunch. There were lots of jellyfish, that did NOT sting and we saw dolphins once and lots of lil' fish by our feet. The a/c worked lovely and the washer/dryer was nice to have too. We would return again. Thanks so very much for providing exactly what you advertise :)

Perfect!

I stayed here with my mother and my son. Everything was very clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of room. Amazing view!! Just steps to the beach. My son is in a wheelchair and the lifeguards brought a beach chair to roll him out on. He had an amazing time. Owner was very friendly and quick to reply to our questions. Lots of places to eat and shops close by. Hope to go back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments. It's so great to hear that your son had a wonderful time. The life guards and beach service staff are always so accommodating. I am glad they made things easier for you and your son. We surely enjoy the view from the condo and from the patio as well. I love sitting on the patio and taking it all in. I hope you can plan a trip again soon so all 3 generations can relax and vacation together.

I brought my elderly mother to the beach to see the beach one more time. We had her grandkids and great grandkids come down and she got to watch them play as she sat on the beach soaking up the sun, the beach and her family. Memories that want be forgotten. The condo was very equiped with everything you need. Hope to go back again.

Map

Map

Located between the sleepy town of Ft. Walton Beach, and the buzzing tourist destination of Destin, we feel this is the best vacation destination for the family, golfer, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa. Because these buildings have fewer units than most other beaches and plenty of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say that these are the most beautiful beaches that they have ever seen. Television, surveys and magazines rate the Emerald Coast among the top ten in the world for its beautifully colored waters and sand as white as snow. You can relax on your private balcony, and watch the dolphins jumping less than 100 yards away! This unit is currently priced below similar units in this building, so book soon, before we raise prices.
