Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

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.

Everything has been renovated and updated. Master suite is a dream ..... separate shower, whirlpool tub, vanity area, large walk-in closet, sliding glass door to balcony.

Kitchen is wonderful with a horseshoe shaped breakfast bar, separate lighted wet bar, ice maker, garbage disposal, fridge with water & ice through the double door, ceramic glass top stove, built-in microwave.

Extra sleeping with new raised queen sized Aero-bed. All with huge closets, television sets, DVD players. Washer and dryer and second refrigerator add to the convenient features.

Island Echos amenities include: seasonally heated Gulf front pool (usually January to mid-March), picnic and barbeque area, shuffleboard court, lighted tennis courts. Best amenity, of course, is the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico with wide, snow-white beach and clear, clean emerald-green water.

This is a wonderful condo, very spacious, with an awesome balcony overlooking the clear emerald-green waters and sugar-white sands of the spectacular Gulf of Mexico.

Island Echos is one of the favorite destinations for families visiting the Emerald Coast. It's a mid-rise with only seven stories. There are plenty of amenities on site, plus all the amenities of Fort Walton Beach and Destin just a few minutes away.

The Non-Smoking condo has recently been renovated and has new furnishings and new appliances. It's decorated in a very pleasing Florida style which is warm and inviting.

The master bedroom has a king bed, large TV, VCR and stereo. The second bedroom has a queen bed, TV & VCR. The third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds -- one with a full futon under, TV & VCR.

About Angela Parkhurst

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

Why Angela Parkhurst chose Fort Walton Beach

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.

What makes this condo unique

Brand new exercise room is now open.

Fabulous area and condo!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Very impressed!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was awesome! It was very clean and welcoming. There were eight of us and we were not crowded. There was plenty of room for sitting, relaxing and sleeping. The kitchen had everything needed to make breakfast and lunches every day. The ice maker was great to have to fill our coolers to take down to the beach. The extra amenities that Angela provided were very helpful, in room washer & dryer, chair service, extra beach chairs, beach umbrellas and board games were all wonderful to have. Would definitely recommend this condo. Thank you!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great! We stayed in another 3br at island echos last year and this unit was much better than the last. The layout was perfect for four adults and three kids. The bunk beds were a great option for us! Angela is very responsive and worked to try to get us in our unit with an early check in. The stand alone ice maker in the kitchen and extra fridge were great too! We loaded our cooler every day with ice to take to the beach.

A tiny critique on this unit is there were not enough pots -only two very small and one huge stew pot to

Cook in. But the kitchen was loaded with everything else, moreso than other places we have stayed in. It also seems the electric needs some updating, as our phone chargers and baby monitor would fall out of the wall and one empty outlet is taped over (on the wall where my baby slept and she would not leave it alone).

We had a great stay and we would definitely like to stay in this unit again!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind words and gentle critique. I appreciate hearing when I need to do anything to make your stay better. I am heading out now to buy new pots and pans. I will also have my handyman look at the outlets and put a plate over the one you had problems with. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you again soon.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is wow! Okaloosa Island and Island Echos are just about perfect! Obviously, the view is gorgeous. It looks exactly like the pictures. The water is clear and the beach is clean and not too crowded, but Destin is just over the bridge if you need a little more excitement. I recommend renting wave runners or a pontoon and playing in the bay area.

From the beach chair service, the ice maker and extra fridge, the shower hooks to hang up wet suits, beach toys, a well stocked kitchen and more, Angela and her family have thought of everything. There have been a few updates that are not pictured and they only made our stay better. We had a minor issue with a shower door the day we arrived and someone came to fix it about 10 minutes after I called Angela. So, thank you Angela and family...we are already planning for next year!

Great condo with a beautiful view of the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect condo for our family well stocked with everything we needed. We sat outside every morning drinking coffee and watching the dolphins. The view was awesome from the balcony. When we come back to Ft. Walton Beach we will definitely stay here.

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.
