Our Stunning Top-Floor Condo That Takes Beach Vacationing to Another Dimension!
About David Hober
Hello, I'm David Hober, the very excited, proud new owner of Surf Dweller #708. I just purchased this condo in 2017. I'm the owner and managing broker of Hober Realty and Dixie Living Property Management in Atlanta, Ga. I've been in the real estate business in Atlanta since 1985. I've have always dreamed of owning a place at the beach. I'm so thankful that I've finally made it happen! Our plan is to renovate the condo and keep it in the rental market for the next several years. Then someday, when I retire, we'll move in full time. But, for now - welcome to my "Beach Dream Home" !!! Enjoy!!

Why David Hober chose Fort Walton Beach
We watched the real estate market for over a year, waiting for just the right property to come along. We are so excited to have purchased this condo; it meets all our criteria. Requirement #1: It had to be beach "front". Not a side view or a view of the ocean off in the distance. Full on beachFRONT!! There is no road or buildings or pool between you and your view of the beach/ocean. It's just white sand and blue/green water for as far as you can see in all directions! Requirement #2: We wanted a huge balcony and lots of windows showing the breathtaking views. This condo has one of the largest balconies we could find (30 feet wide). Plus instead of just a window and a sliding glass door to the beach, we have 4 sets of sliding glass doors. Basically floor to ceiling, wall to wall glass looking out onto the beach/ocean. This is in the living room and the master bedroom. And because we're on the top floor, the guest room has a view of the Santa Rosa Sound (the other side of the island). Requirement #3: We wanted some SPACE. So many of the other condos felt like hotel rooms. We are planning to move into this condo someday (once we retire). So, we wanted somewhere that we could picture ourselves living (not in a space the size of a hotel). So, this is one of the largest 2BR/2BA floor plans we could find - 1453 sq feet. That's the size of a small house! Every room is spacious. We could live here (and I can't wait!).

Everything and More
My husband, adult daughter and I were all thoroughly pleased with this property. It was exactly as represented online in the description and the pictures. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and then some. The views from the balcony were exceptional; one literally sat above the beach and Gulf and there was absolutely nothing to obstruct watching the porpoises, birds, surfers, walkers, and other beach life and activities. The condo itself was very quiet being on the top floor, and the layout and decorations very nice. We didn't avail ourselves to all the amenities available such as beach toys, DVDs, games, etc., but they were there if wanted. This was our first experience with an owner-owned VRBO unit, and frankly, we were apprehensive that the condo could be misrepresented. It was not. It was perfect for us and we had a wonderful stay and without a doubt would reserve this property again.
I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay at our beach home! Thank you for taking such good care of it. Please come back anytime.
Happy New Year!
This was the perfect spot for our family Thanksgiving holiday. Loved the location; loved the condo. Nothing like waking up to the sound of the ocean and watching the waves roll in as the sun streams in your bedroom. Thank you David!
So glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving at the beach!! Come back anytime!
To somewhat paraphrase Arnold.....'WE'LL BE BAAAACK!'
We have been to numerous condos on Okaloosa Island, and this by far was our favorite! Huge condo, fantastic view, so easy to get in and out of with the new door lock/keypad, and he couldn't have been more helpful or responsive to questions. The only complaint I have about it is towards myself, because there were so many things that I packed for the trip and brought down THAT THEY ALREADY HAD! LOL! Whether it was simply kosher salt for a roast I was cooking, beach towels, beach toys and chairs, etc....they came through for us! It was so clean, inviting, and homey.....we hate leaving, but we will definitely be back! Thanks again for sharing your home with us!
Go glad you and your family enjoyed your stay!!
Come back soon!
Well appointed, comfortable and lovely
