Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2003

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Fort Walton Beach

on the beach/large open floor plan/ground floor access/next to the BBQ area/next to the Tom Thumb beach store/two king beds/close to village of fort walton/park close by/church close by.

This is a unique island, with gulf front on one side and inter-coastal water way on the other... we love taking walks on the beach renting a boat for cruising on the inter-coastal waterway side. Exploring the many little islands is a great way to relax, sunbath, fish and have a picnic... Sometimes we go by boat to restaurants in nearby towns too! So bring your boat or rent one for a small daily or hourly fee at the local boat rental to hightide restaurant.

What makes this condo unique

large open floor plan, two sofa's and a chair. Master bedroom is spacious with a recliner chair. Most lights and wall lamps controlled with dimmers switches. Balcony safe you can relax and worry about little ones climbing over since it is ground floor.

Just 54 steps to sinking your feet in the sand...

White sugar beaches with emerald color water...

Searching for shells? after landing your feet in the sand turn right and keep going past the condo's and around the bend... happy searching...


we have a friend that owns the unit on the same level opposite side almost identical floor plan. 3/3 like ours so only two units between ours and theirs. If you are looking to rent two units close together this is a great option their VRBO number is 290572

Perfect Location & Trip

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay! It was on the first floor with a view of the dunes and view of the Gulf when standing along with the wonderful wave sounds. It was steps to the pool and close to the boardwalk to the beach.

The unit accommodated 8 guests perfectly offering plenty of dining and living area space to spread out and not feel all cramped up.

The parking was easy and close to the room's entrance for our handicapped guests.

There seemed like there were TVs everywhere which we didn't need to use, because the weather was perfect our entire trip. But they are there is you want one - 4 TVs.

Zoe was very easy to contact, accommodating and made sure our stay was perfect.

We recommend this unit.

Thank you for offering such a wonderful vacation home!

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The condominium was very nice and large and allowed our family to each have their own bedrooms - always a plus. Ground floor level so view of gulf is obstructed by dunes - but we knew that. We had asked about a heated pool prior to booking and was told there was one. On arrival, we learned that the heater was broken and had been for a week and didn't know when it would be fixed. Our granddaughter wasn't happy (nor were we that we weren't notified ahead of time). Location to beach is great. Lots of rules for when you leave the apt including rules for what would lead to having deposits withheld. More rules than I've seen at other VBRO rentals.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review the condo. We are glad that you and your family enjoyed the interior space, the grounds, the balcony and of course the beach. Unfortunately, as I explained at the time the swimming pool maintenance is not something within my control. There are two systems that heat the pool. One system should have taken over when the other failed. Solar panels on the roof and a secondary system. This must be one of those rare occasions one did not adequately heat when one failed. Apparently as I explained a part needed to be ordered which took over a week to arrive according to the Association office. So sorry to disappoint your grandchild I hope you will come back in the future. (The owners were not informed of this issue prior to your arrival) I am not sure what rules were different from other rentals you have booked... (Load dishwasher and set off, take trash out, leave sheets on the bed, don't leave dirty dishes in the sink, put key back in the box, check to see if anything accidentally ended up in your suitcase). All normal things I thought.

Exactly what we needed.

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and our spouses are doing annual Family Vacations. Nautilus was our first place to try. It had everything that we needed and the location was ideal for us. Definitely worth a return trip.

Bham al

The condo was very tastefully decorated and we loved the layout. see below

  • 3 of 5

However, the patio was covered in sand- not cleaned in some time. Tiles were actually up and caused walking hazard. Carpet and furniture was extremely dirty, big stains and wrinkled up in the doorway. This unit has no view of the ocean. Baths were clean and kitchen was clean. Ice maker dropped a tiny bit of ice overnight, so we purchased a bag. Windows were dirty with finger prints all over them. Just needs some attention. We had some small brown bugs crawling along the shower and in the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Hello there, thank you for your review... I did not hear anything from you during your stay? This is a ground floor unit with great access to the beach. The view is of the sand dunes and the water from standing. The sounds of the ocean are heard and sitting on our balcony is both private and relaxing. I wish you had called with any of these issues as I would have wanted to make your stay as comfortable as possible and fix any issues you were not happy with. The patio tile has one or two 6" X 6" tiles that have come loose under the seating area and one behind a column.... they have been secured and we plan to replace it this winter. I am sorry that you felt that our carpets were wrinkled etc. We steam clean our carpets on a regular basis, I suppose this could have contributed to them getting loose and I apologize for that. After this busy summer we do plan to replace the carpets with a great looking wood plank style to go along with the existing travatine stone flooring. So going forward the floors will have only area rugs on top of wood. I think you will like it! The fridge maybe a bit too sophisticated for its own good... The ice maker has a child lock on it but occasionally it becomes unlocked and the ice maker is turned off or the temperature is changed. The ice machine was just services so I know it works. It is most likely just a question of ajusting the temp. If you had of called me I would have helped you adjust it. We hope that you will come back and stay sometime.
