About Eileen Taylor

My husband, Bob and I live in northern Virginia outside of Washington, D.C. Our lives are very hectic so we like to escape to Oceania. We love the water. We wanted to buy a beach condo since we were first married. Our family loves to come to Oceania. We just wish we were closer. Our three sons, their wives, girlfriends and our three grandchildren, all enjoy the beach and the beautiful water. We also love boating, tennis and snow skiing.

Eileen Taylor purchased this condo in 2004

Why Eileen Taylor chose Holiday Isle

We decided to buy our condo at Oceania because of the outstanding view of the Gulf and private beach. We love the squeaky sound when you walk across the sand. It reminds us of walking in snow. The condo is so large and well designed that it gives us a spacious feeling that we have never had in any other condo. The balcony is huge and can hold the whole family with room to spare!

What makes this condo unique

Oceania is located on Holiday Isle which is off the busy highway 98. It is close to everything without the busy traffic and crowds. We enjoy the quiet pool, beach and beautiful landscaping at Oceania. There are so many restaurants nearby that is hard to choose where to go. The many activities include: shopping, mini golf, para sailing and going to Destin harbor to walk around the boats or go on a sunset cruise. I think my blood pressure drops by 20 points when I am in Oceania.

Simply Put… The BEST of the BEST !!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at Oceania for Thanksgiving for 10+ years. This year we had a need to find another unit at Oceania. I vetted many of the condos listed here on VRBO. We decided to spend our Thanksgiving week at Eileen's unit 504. WOW! What a great call! At the time of booking and prior to our arrival, her communication was terrific! We arrived to a clean, well furnished, modernly decorated condo with the absolute BEST view of the Gulf of Mexico that one could ask for! Ordinarily, when staying for a week in a condo, one encounters something maintenance related. Other than some batteries in a remote that needed replacing, everything was perfect! The heated pool was AWESOME for this time of year! The weather cooperated every day except one and our son played endlessly on the most beautiful beaches on the world!

Simply put… if you are reading this review as you are searching for that perfect condo to vacation with your family and/or friends…. you cannot go wrong and will be elated with this unit! We will be returning to Destin and Oceania for Thanksgiving again next November and unit 504 will be our destination! I know that you will experience the same hospitality that we did! We are thrilled that we found Eileen and unit 504!

Love Oceania 504!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect--close to the elevator, pool, ocean and parking. We will rent this unit again next year, if available. Thank you for sharing your condo with us. We had a wonderful week with our family.

Would stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved this condo! I looked at tons of condos on VRBO and we picked this one because it had the nicest patio furniture {among other things} and we were not disappointed, it was beautiful and comfy! The view was fabulous, we saw dolphins everyday and it was a nice quiet area. It was a perfect size for 3 couples to stay comfortably.

Even better that the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better Condo. The pictures don't do this place justice. The beds were very comfortable, and the balcony is the best I've ever seen. By far the best placed we've stayed in all our years of visiting Destin.

Fortnight of Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Third year at Oceania; first year in this condo. We hope to return annually! The owner was wonderful and made our arrival a breeze with her detailed instructions. The condo is well-appointed; especially, the kitchen. I was able to prepare food without the personal utensils I had brought from home. A first! The bar and ice machine in the unit were well-utilized, too!

The owners of Oceania had made some nice enhancements this past year to the grilling area and the beach entry and boardwalk. Travis, the beach attendant, was as helpful as Bo in previous years. The owner provides beach service for two and we appreciated the umbrella and chairs.

This condo has a wonderful view from its 60' balcony and the floor to ceiling windows in the spacious master.

Oceania is a jewel and this unit and its owner are exceptional.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We came to Destin for Spring Break with 2 adults and 3 teenage boys. This condo was absolutely amazing! Beautifully decorated and very spacious. So nice to have 3 bathrooms. The oversized balcony with comfortable seating was enjoyed daily. Large sized pool and beautiful beach area was never crowded. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby as well. I highly recommend this condo if you are coming to the Destin area!
