Million dollar view from this 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath penthouse on the beach. May be the best view on Okaloosa Island -- see all the way to Navarre and past the Okaloosa Pier as far as the eye can see toward Destin, just six miles to the east.
This beautiful unit is on the perfect floor to watch the dolphins, seagulls and activity on the beach from the huge 32 foot balcony. Watch the boats on the Intercoastal Waterway and have a front row seat for holiday fireworks from front walkway.

Hi, Y'all. My name is Angela Parkhurst and I'm fortunate to live in the very area where this condo is located. It's paradise on earth along this Emerald Coast. This makes it easy to manage my rental unit and be quick to resolve any issues (very few so far) that can arise.
I am the proud mother of three boys --- Jason, age 38, a professional photographer who travels all over the world taking photos for such publications as Sports Illustrated and USA Today, Cameron (Jason's twin), who lives in Atlanta and works very successfully in the wonderful world of finance and is the proud and doting father of Madison (age 4) and Carter (age 2). My youngest son, Clark, age 35, lives in Los Angeles, CA where he works in the movie and ad industry. I also am the proud and doting Mom of a Schnoodle named Lulu.
Please come visit us. You'll love the condo and the incomparable view of the Gulf of Mexico.
Angela Parkhurst purchased this condo in 2004
I actually bought the unit and lived in it for three years so it has a lot of upgrades that other units don't have. The Destin/Fort Walton Beach area is one of the most beautiful areas on this earth --- snow white sandy beaches, clear and clean emerald green waters. There's plenty to do with over a hundred golf courses within 50 miles, water parks, wonderful restaurants, snorkeling and scuba diving and fishing beyond compare.
Brand new exercise room is now open.
We loved it! We took our 3 young children, and another couple with 3 children, and there was so much room for the kids to play and run around. Everything we needed was provided, and great tub to wash the sands off little bottoms (and big ones, too!). The beach is great with soft, white sands so no feet were burning! Area is great and close to necessities. Great running/jogging area. Will return! Thanks so much!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. It is roomy, comfortable, clean, and beautiful. The owner has done a fantastic job of furnishing it--from the kitchen items (we found EVERYTHING we needed and then some!), to the comfortable mattresses, it far surpassed our expectations. The owner is generous and caring--you can tell that by the special items she furnishes--games, books, movies, chairs, beach paraphernalia, etc. We hope to be able to stay here again and again. Thank you Angela!
I was really looking forward to this trip, and the condo exceeded all of my expectations. Every room was spacious, and all of the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, and the condo was neat, clean, and welcoming. I am hoping to be able to do this next Holiday Season as well!
It would be hard to find a better location in the Destin / Ft Walton area. Just about anything you would want or need is within a couple of miles.
The view is spectacular - even on a cold, wet, foggy day - just amazing. I didn't want to leave!
We stayed in Fort Walton Beach to attend a family wedding. The condo was very convenient, had a great view of the gulf, and the great room layout is perfect for entertaining. Beds and furniture are nice and comfortable. Kitchen equipment is "rental unit worn" but fine for a beach vacation.
We would definitely stay here again.
This is a great rental. My family of 8 stayed there with plenty of room. The views are great from the balcony. I would and will stay here again.
Tropical paradise is closer than you think.....it's on Florida's Emerald Coast situated on the Gulf of Mexico. Florida's panhandle has for many years been awarded accolades from many tourist publications including Southern Living. Enjoy the softest, whitest sandy beaches, the clear emerald-green water with plenty of activities to interest vacationers. Within a day's drive from most Southeastern cities, the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area is a popular destination. You'll never be bored with the 28 top ranked golf courses, tennis facilities, fishing, watersports, hiking and biking trails, dolphin watching, nature preserves, historic forts, museums, water parks, incredible restaurants, boutique and bargain shopping. Or, just chill on the uncrowded beaches. It's a great place to vacation year-round -- even winter enjoys nearly 70 degrees of sunshine. The people here are friendly and are happy to extend their 'southern hospitality,' the pace relaxed; most guests are repeat visitors.
Other Activities: shopping, boating, miniature golf, racquet ball, shuffleboard, tennis, restaurants
