About John & Linda Doyle

We are semi-retired and have been vacationing on Okaloosa Island and the Emerald Isle Complex for a number of years now. We live in Oak Ridge, TN where we raised our family of three children. We love the water and have vacationed for years at both Pawley's Island, SC and here in FWB. We are very happy with our decision to purchase our Condo here on Okaloosa Island.

John & Linda Doyle purchased this condo in 2009

Why John & Linda Doyle chose Fort Walton Beach

We have been visiting this Condominium Complex for a number of years and fell in love with both the location and the FWB area. We found this unit was available in 2009 and proceeded to purchase it. We have not been disappointed, it is a wonderful , place for vacations.

What makes this condo unique

The Condo is a top floor unit with breathtaking gulf views from the living room,dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. The Santa Rosa Sound, an inter-coastal waterway is viewed from both the kitchen and guest bedroom windows. The white sandy beach and turquoise waters of the Gulf along with brilliant skies make for a perfect vacation home for us. We have completely refurbished and refurnished the unit which complements the location and views. We think you too will fall in love with our Condo during your vacation stay.

Great place for relaxation!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo on the Emerald Coast! Great views, spacious, comfortable beds, steps to the beach. Be sure to bring beach chairs/umbrella - no longer included with the condo.

Owner's Response: Dear Julie, We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at our condo, found it to be beautiful, spacious, with comfortable beds,( which are very important to us ) that you appreciated the fact that it is only steps away from the beach and found it to be so relaxing. These are hopes for us , too, when we visit the beach. This year our decision was to not increase our rates rather than providing the beach chairs and umbrella. We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation at our beautiful beach and comfortable condo. Wishing you a happy, peace and joy filled summer. With warm regards, The Doyle's

Owner's Response: Dear Dianna and Ernest, Thank you for your appreciation of our condos cleanness. It is one of our primary goals, to have a clean home -away for our guests and for our selves when we visit. We loved that you loved seeing the Gulf so beautifully and hearing the sounds of the ocean from our condo, and enjoyed the quietness of the neighborhood in our area. When we first chose this condo, it was the view of the turquoise Gulf, waters and the white sands of the beach and being able to hear the sounds of the waves crashing that kept coming to mind. That is why we chose it. We are so glad you enjoyed it too!

Paradise at Fort Walton Beach

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the Condo, my daughter and I both ran to look at the water from the balcony! The view captivated us from the front door! The condo is beautifully decorated and also very comfortable. You have the feeling that you are staying in someone's home and not in a hotel room!

Our mornings were spent drinking coffee in the comfort of the living room that has very pretty and comfy cushions and great lighting for reading. We split our days between walking on the beautiful and uncrowded beach and sitting by the nice pool. We loved having a nice bathroom to go to all day right by the pool!

The Publix grocery store was very close and we were able to fix everything right in the well equipped kitchen. The atmosphere of the condo complex is very nice and tenants are polite and well behaved. We did not encounter any loud music on the beach or in the complex. Many of our neighbors were owners who were down for the week.

The beds were so comfortable and very private so that my daughter was able to go to sleep much earlier than I did and did not hear me.

The evenings were spent walking on the beach and we felt completely safe. The last night we discovered all of the movies beneath the TV and watched several fun movies that we had not seen before. The owners also have a great collection of books to read.

I have never stayed in a condo with decor as nice as this one. Everything was updated and lovely.

We had such a great time that we are already planning a return trip as soon as possible! This is definitely a place worth visiting! You will want to return!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Marianne, We are delighted that you and your daughter had such a wonderful visit at our home away from home. It has been our hope that our guests will experience the breathtaking natural beauty of the Gulf waters and the white sands of the beach and to have an interior that facilitated such a restful and enjoyable vacation that you described. We appreciate your taking the time to so generously detail the items that contributed to your lovely visit. Looking forward to your visiting again, The Doyles

Paradise at Fort Walton Beach

  • 5 of 5

I just experienced a week at this precious condo at Fort Walton Beach. From the moment we arrived we have enjoyed our time immensely!

The unit is beautifully decorated and has everything we could want in the kitchen and in the condo. As I sit in the living room I can see the beautiful sand and water from the couch and chair. The balcony off of the living room and master bedroom have gliding chairs and couches so that we have been able to sit out and feel as though we are right on the beach. The pool is nice and easy to access from our room -as is the beach! We have two walkways that lead to already set up beach chairs and the beach is so clean and wonderful. I must say that we especially enjoyed the fact that there were nice families and even young college students who were well behaved. There was no loud music or rowdy drinking at any time during our stay. The residents who live here were very friendly and let us know about some attractions locally. The grocery store was nearby as were many other nice attractions but not so close that we felt "crowded in". The beds were so comfortable and the bedding was nice and new and everything was very clean!

I want to come back and stay again next year! This place is wonderful!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Emerald Isle and definitely recommend it! The condo has everything you need for a great vacation! The location is perfect. Right on the beach, just a couple of miles from Publix and numerous restaurants. It was exactly what we'd hoped for!!
