Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
I like fun businesses. In addition to the rental units at the beach, I own a frozen custard shop/arcade. Its all about having fun! The only problem is that I don't get enough time at the beach myself.
Owner purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Owner chose Fort Walton Beach
The location is great. The view is even better. The owner makes the process simple. All you need to do is have a great time!
What makes this Condo unique
You are so beachfront you can see the beach and the water from the living room. A nice big balcony makes a great place to begin your day with a cup of coffee and that view. Just minutes from most of the major attractions in Destin and Ft Walton Beach.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
I just wanted to let you know about the unit during our stay. Upon arrival the toilet in the bathroom to the left wouldn't flush. I called and was told it would be the next day before it would be fixed. After expressing my displeasure, I was told someone would arrive in one hour and needed to be let in. We waited two hours and still no one. We left to eat and it was fixed when we got back. The rest of the unit was not clean. The full size bottom bunk has a hole in the mattress. In addition, we could tell the beds were remade but nothing was washed. The entire unit was covered in blonde hair and is now in all of our clothes. The showers had something black in the bottom of them. We really tried to make the unit work for us and the fact that we wouldn't be able to find anywhere else to go under such short notice. However, I'm just overall disappointed.
We are not sure what unit this guest is reviewing. They were the first visitors after our snowbirds who were there from Nov-March. I can't imagine where the guest found blonde hair as the only two people in the unit for the previous months were our 80+ yrs old snowbirds. The mattresses and the bunk beds are fairly new and again, I'm safe in saying that I'm pretty sure our snowbirds did not use the bunkbeds very much(at all). If something isn't working, then it needs to be fixed. Stuff does break- it happens- and when it does, 2 hours for a spot service call is pretty darn good. Try calling your plumber at home and see if he shows up in ONLY 2 hours.
And just last yesterday, as this unit is for sale, we got a call from HGTV who wants us to sign a release so they can shoot an episode of Beachfront Bargains in this very condo.
Wonderful location and condo was great!
We stayed a week in Florida and had a great time. Island echos is in a great location has a wonderful beach and Phil was an awesome host and the accommodations were wonderful. Access and parking were good as well.
Thanks for the kind words Aaron...I'm always happy to hear that my guests had a great time- that is what vacation is for!
Great beach stay
Great beach, great weather, great location!
exterior of property was in great condition. The unit its self needed an heavy duty intense cleaning bathroom base boards, not just the hour or hour and a half between guest. It needs dusting on the return vents, the cable covers on the ceilings for the lights, ceiling fan blades, light fixtures and the base boards. It also needs some repairs to the base boards, wall paper, paint, walls need scrub, panty shelves need some sprucing up, ceiling fixed from previous leakes, closed doors doors need to be cleaned and one bathroom door fixed or replaced. I realize its a rental and people abuse the property but some things should be taken care of during the one hour cleaning. Also, light bulbs out in just about every room.
Thank you for your comments. The items related to cleaning have been passed along to our housekeeping service. As for the interior cosmetics, we do come down at the end of every season to take care of these things and will be spending the last 2 weeks of August attending to these types of upgrade opportunities. with the unit having only 4 unrented nights the entire summer season, it is not surprising to have some things that require attention and now that the season is winding down, these things will be addressed.
Great value. Amazing views right on the beach!
This was like a home away from home for us! We have a two year old daughter and 4 year old son. They felt right at home. This unit is centrally located on the top floor with a beachfront view. We had breakfast on the oversized patio every morning. I cooked dinner every night. I used Walmart Grocery Pickup service in Ft. Walton. Our groceries were ready upon arrival. This is just a short 15 minute drive into town. We came in from the beach for lunch. We went out late after dark and searched for ghost crab. This is the perfect spot. We also did the dolphin and firework show pontoon charter booked through Destin Snorkel Thursday evening in Destin. Then we ended up at AJ's Oyster Shanty on the way back to Okaloosa Island. It was a family friendly hang out with a bar and dance area. There was a lip syncing, and dress up contest going on that night along with a side stage for the kids to get up on and dance hoolahoop etc. We had so much fun! It was an amazing end to our stay. Beds were comfortable. Air conditioning cool. Plenty of towels. We slept with the master bedroom window open to hear the peaceful sound of the waves. We hope to come back again next year!
I'm so happy to hear that you had a great visit. It's awfully hard not to have fun in such a beautiful place. I look forward to hearing from you for your next visit!
It was fantastic
