Fort Walton Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, Sitting room with sleeper, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

This large condo is located on the seventh (top) floor of Emerald Isle Beach Club. Emerald Isle Beach Club is directly on the gulf with no roads to cross. To access the beach just go down to the first floor and walk past the gulf side pool and you are on some of the whitest sand beaches you have ever seen.

This condo was recently remodeled. The kitchen has been opened up to the living room with all new appliances and granite counter tops. With this fully stocked kitchen this is great for anyone wanting to cook for family and friends.

It is a very large unit with lots of extra room. It is an eastern facing unit with a views of the beach, Gulf and of the inter coastal waterway. The condo also has two master bedrooms, both with king size beds and sliders that open up to Gulf view balconies, The third bedroom has a queen size bed and twin bunk beds, great for either kids or a third couple. There is also a sitting room with a sleeper sofa. The sitting room has a closet and door for privacy, so it could be used as a forth bed room.

About Scott Simpkins

I have been a local in Fort Walton Beach sense 1974. After purchasing this unit I lived in it for two years before moving and have had the pleasure of renting this condo ever sense. This unit was remodeled in 2011. I am trying to get rents who would like to come down every year. Even if you just think that you only want to come down for one year please come down for a stay. It is up to me to win you over.

Scott Simpkins purchased this condo in 2003

This is a large unit with a kitchen that is open to the living room. It has three bedrooms and a sitting room that has a sleeper sofa, a door and a closet. While the unit does not face the beach it does have a beach view and a wonderful view of the intercostal and Brooks Bridge.

Great family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and 5 kids that stayed in Scott's condo. We had plenty of room and were very comfortable. The condo had everything we needed. The water was beautiful and it was nice having the pool right at the beach. It was nice to sit on the balcony at the end of the day and listen to the waves. The view from the condo was beautiful. It is a great place to stay with family. I hope to go again next year and bring the family again and maybe stay longer. Thank you Scott. ☺️

Perfect Location for a Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families stay in Scott’s condo 7/26-8/2. There were 10 of us (5 adults & 5 kids) & we had just enough room! This was our first trip to Florida & we could not have picked a better place to stay. Okaloosa Island is the place to be. It’s a very thin Island & must have a 7-story height restriction because there were no high-rises, Scott’s condo is on the top floor of the building & you can see for miles. The views are beautiful, you can see both the bay & the ocean from the balconies. This unit is also on the corner which was nice. We spent a lot of time hanging out on the balconies which was very relaxing. The beach was literally steps away & so lovely. The white sand & clear water were amazing & the beach was not too crowded. We really enjoyed the umbrella & chairs provided; we brought a sun shade & more chairs but never even got them out of the car because we were in the water most of the time. The weather was gorgeous. We took a short walk across the street & found a small public area where we could access the bay & found some rocks covered w/shells & hermit crabs, our kids got a huge kick out of that. Everything is so close by to this condo, Destin is a 10 min. drive; the Gulfarium is 5 min. away, & there is a grocery store, restaurants, & a small boardwalk where they have a playground on the sand. The condo itself was great, had everything we needed & Scott was very responsive to our questions & concerns. We slept in the king bed & it was super comfy. My father in law slept in the ‘sitting room’ on the pull-out couch bed, which he said wasn’t great (like most pull out beds), however we do have a queen blow up I would bring if we stay here again since there was more than enough floor space for it. The water pressure in the showers was nice, the kitchen was fully stocked, & w/the table & chairs, stools @ the bar, & outside seating we had more than ample room to eat. We cooked every meal & only went out to lunch once & dinner once. The washer & dryer are just down the hall & work fine. The views from the walkways are also wonderful, we watched many colorful sunsets. The pool is really great when the ocean is getting rough. It was just the right size, our kids all had a blast. There are great sprayers to spray off the sand so we barely carried any up to the condo. There are some helpful travel brochures inside of the door to the bathrooms near the pool. I would highly recommend staying in Scott's condo if you visit Florida, we had a blast!

Nice stay the week of July 4th

  • 5 of 5

We had two families stay in this condo during the week of July 4th. The owner was quick to respond to our questions and concerns. We only had enough towels in the condo for one set of showers for all of us, but after contacting the owner, housekeeping quickly provided another set for us. The condo was clean and stocked with almost all the items we needed for cooking (we should have brought a griddle with us for pancakes). The grills by the pool were useful in grilling out a couple of nights and grilling utensils were in the condo. The balconies were nice but were unable to enjoy in the mornings because the sun rose on that side of the building. They are not directly facing the beach but on the side of the building. Evenings were much better for the balconies. The balcony furniture could use some updating off the bedroom because there were tears in the fabric. Balcony furniture off the living room was nice. The covered parking spot for the unit would have been nice but our vehicles were too large to fit in it. However, parking near the building was not a problem. The appliances were very up to date and the unit was very clean and taken care of by the owner. The washer and dryer are located on the same floor near the elevators and take quarters to use. The beach service was an added benefit to have to put our stuff as we enjoyed the surf. In the condo to use was also a boogie board and some sand toys. We used the extra room as another bedroom and hangout for the kids. But be aware there is no drawer space for clothing in this room, but there is a closet. There is plenty of storage space in the other bedrooms with drawer space and large closet spaces. Destin is a very short drive (maybe 10 minutes) with lots of restaurants and activities as well. As it neared July 4th, traffic was much more congested to get there. Nice condo unit and the owner was very easy to work with as well. Thanks for a great stay!

Family Fun at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Scott for allowing us to stay in your perfect beach condo! We traveled with four adults and a one year old and had so much individual space, as well as, the right amount of shared spaces. The beds were comfortable and the condo was clean and comfortable. The sitting room was perfect for a playroom or another sleeping area. We also enjoyed the short walk to the pool/beach and used the shared barbeque pits numerous times. We chose the perfect location and condo for our sons first trip to the beach and have discussed bringing more people with us next time. The condo can definitely comfortably accommodate many more people. Thank you, Scott, for also being available when questions arose and making us feel welcome. We look forward to staying there again in the future!!!!
