About Pat Okenica

My husband, Ed & I currently live in Georgia and have been visiting this area for 35 years! We own and operate our own real estate firm at Lake Oconee, which is located 70 miles east of Atlanta, Ga. Old enough to retire, but not ready to give up the 'game'! We have the best of all and working on a beautiful 19,000 acre lake in Georgia & owning a special getaway place on Okaloosa Island! We manage it ourselves and it's always very clean and neat. And, of course, the view of the Gulf is like no other!! We would love to share it with you! Please give us a call sometime and we'll tell you all about it!

Pat Okenica purchased this condo in 2004

Why Pat Okenica chose Fort Walton Beach

Emerald green waters, pristine beaches, away from everything, but close driving distance to it all. Stunning sunset views. No impersonal high rise buildings! Need we say more?

What makes this condo unique

Small Complex, 27 units - 100 feet from the beach - Corner/end unit with it's own private entrance. Extra window in living area enhances the views and the brightness in the rooms, not to mention the view! Sitting on the balcony makes you feel like you could 'reach out and touch the water'. Dolphins playing and Pelicans swooping in for their 'catch of the day'. Convenient to shopping, restaurants & entertainment, yet away from the crowds & traffic. It's a dream come true!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pat, I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful week we had at the beach in your condo.Your place truly does soothe my soul and brings me peace. You have a little slice of heaven here on earth.

That was our second time and I know there will be a third. It is decorated so cute and everything is so nice. It is a million times better than staying in any hotel!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

quiet, beautiful, clean, and fun

This is the quintessential beach vacation! It feels like a beach cottage, not at all like staying in the bigger condos. The view from the balcony is gorgeous, an unobstructed view of the sand and water, and all you hear is the waves crashing. There is a nice breeze. The pool is kept really nice - not overly chlorinated probably because it's not constantly crowded with people. The condo has all the amenities you need, a full kitchen, and a comfortable bed. Decorations are beachy and cute.

I loved staying here.

Great R&R!

My husband and I very much enjoyed a relaxing getaway the last week of February at this very comfortable clean condo. The weather was cool but sunny the entire time. The view is wonderful and the sunsets stunning! Lots of good restaurants within a mile or two. We definitely want to return!

Okaloosa really IS a piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The location, amenities, and great vibe of this area really appealed to us. The condo was clean, very well-equipped, and the perfect place for a relaxing stay. Beach views are lovely, especially the sunsets. Pat supplied us with terrific information to help orient us to Okaloosa Island and the surrounding area, and her restaurant recommendations were spot-on. Five stars!!

guest from Hopkinsville, KY

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at the condo. The view from the balcony was wonderful. We could see the sun rise and set each day from the balcony. We couldn't have asked for better weather. The condo was so prettily decorated, clean and abundantly supplied with towels, tissues, etc. Wished for an elevator, but we needed the exercise and by the end of our stay, could climb the stairs quite well. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Hope we can go back next year!
