About The Owner

Hello! We are Tara and Brian DeLosier, and we would love to share our 'Little Piece of Paradise' with you! My husband Brian works for the Fire Department and I book and manage the rentals... plus, I help run a family business here in Georgia. We feel very blessed to have three wonderful children, and they keep us on the go... go... go! We find most guests travel with children/grand children, so we're pleased to say that we offer a very 'kid friendly' condo.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Why The Owner chose Fort Walton Beach

We have traveled many parts of Florida over the years, but Ft Walton Beach/Okaloosa Island soon became our favaorite beach. We found ourselves returning year after year, so we decided to buy our condo in 2002. We did a lot of remodeling and upgrading to our 2/bedroom 2/bath condo, so I must say... our place looks great!

What makes this condo unique

The Nautilus is well kept and afordable place to come and stay. The complex is clean and with it's easy access to the pool and beach, we book many return guests. We would love to share our place with you and your family and or friends! Blessings

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family vacation! Short walk to beach and condo was stocked with everything you could want or need. Away from hustle and bustle of destin, but a 6 mile drive if we wanted in on the action. Beach was beautiful! And we have never seen so many dolphins playing just past the sand bar. Better than anything money can buy!

Perfect for a Week Relaxing on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My girl friends and I had a wonderful time at the condo. Everyone had enough room to sleep and relax, the kitchen had all the cooking ware we needed which helped us save money and bond since we could just cook our meals together. We were super greatful for the collection of books in the condo, we even pulled out some of the board games like jenga on one of the days when it rained. The cable came in handy on that day too. On days when it was sunny and warm the beach was such a close walk. We found sand dollar pieces and walked to the pier which you can see in the distance. The short walk to the beach was taken advantage of, we went out at least once everyday. Overall I would say this was the most inviting and comfortable trip I've had to the beach.

Great for our big family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in your condo! We have a large and young (4 kids under 7 1/2) family, but your condo was so perfect for a "white" Christmas on the beach. The condo was clean and fully equipped, even with board games and beach toys to go along with the cable TV and DVD players. Having the full kitchen helped us save some money, and bake Christmas cookies for everyone! The kids especially loved having the build in bunk beds, and the ease of walking right down to the beach, while mom and dad loved having their own romantic master suite with a view of the beach from the bed!

The Nautilus building itself was quiet and staffed by incredibly friendly and helpful people. The location right between Fort Walton and Destin couldn't have been more perfect.

Thank you for an unforgettable week! We will be back!

Wonderful, beautiful and relaxing!

Our stay at your "Little Piece of Paradise" was just that! Paradise! The condo was clean and inviting. The king size bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and big. The icemaker really came in handy for the daily trips to the beach. Having the beach service was awesome. Thank you so much for the use of your condo. I would recommend your place in a minute!

Stay at Nautilus room 2209

  • 5 of 5

This condo provides a home like feel from the first time you enter. Kitchen well stocked, Free standing ice maker is wonderful for preparing to go to the beach all day. Bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. Slept great every night! The second bedroom was great for storage of all our beach toys but would have been great for another family visiting as it has a queen bed and bunk beds. View of the Gulf of Mexico is very nice, especially when you are winding down in the evening with a drink. Unit is very quiet. Rarely hear noises from other units. The swimming pool was always clean, the access to the beach is close and easy to access.

I can only call our two weeks at this condo as vacation bliss. I highly recommend it to any couple or family!!!

What I love most about my visit was that there was nothing the condo did not have to make my visit wonderful. The kitchen was stocked with all the comforts of home. My favorite option was the automatic ice maker that is built into the cabinets. It came in handy for my many visits to the beach and the pool. Not only was I happy but my kids were thrilled with all the water and pool supplies that were available in the condo. My kids found so many wonderful shells while walking and swimming along the beach. The decor in the condo is also very beautiful with a tropical look. I would recomend this condo for anyone who would like the confort of home and the scenery to die for.

Would love to return to this property in the future.
