Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

This is a Gulf-Front, not a side view unit like some of those at this complex. Beautifully updated 1100 sq/ft condo has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths with the den and master bedroom on the gulf with incredible views. The unit has a king and queen beds. Sofa sleeper provides additional bedding which allows it to sleep 6 comfortably. There are two flat screen TVs, a 42'' in den and 32'' in the master. The spacious fully equipped kitchen has stainless appliances and an eat-in bar provides extra seating for meals. The condo is tastefully decorated. We invite you to vacation here, enjoy the view, and make some memories. This complex is convenient to restaurants and shopping and of course it is right on the beach! The beach at Okaloosa Island is wide and the complex is small, making for a less crowded beach. The public pier and gulfarium is just a short walk away on the beach.

Restaurants that are in walking distance would be Helen Back (a bar that serves pizza), Old Bay Steamer (steamed seafood), Fudpucker's(which I would avoid), and Waffle House. A short drive would be Pandora's Steak House, Pranzo (Italian), and the Boardwalk Restaurants of which I would recommend the Black Pearl.

There is also a beach store and Tom Thumb convenience store within walking distance.

The boardwalk has a fishing pier and it would be a short car ride or a half mile walk on the beach. Nearby as well is Legendary Brooks Bridge Marina which rents pontoon boats and jet skis.

This condo is everything that is listed here & so much more! Everything was in great working condition. The bed in the master bedroom was VERY comfortable. The girls added that their bed was comfortable too. The towels were extremely fluffy & easy on a sun burnt body. The master bath was incredible. I must mention the binoculars that were provided as well, every morning I would sit out on the balcony & just enjoy the view. With the binoculars in hand I seen lots of dolphins playing each morning. Having the beach service with the two chairs & umbrella was another added bonus! No worrying about packing our umbrella & chairs, nor did we have to rush down to get a spot on the beach. I guess the beach service & binoculars were my favorite added bonuses! The condo has been updated & very well taken care of. Sea Oats may be an older condo complex but you would never know it by the looks of this condo unit. It's beautifully decorated & very well equipped. We didn't use the kitchen much as we took advantage of the wonderful restaurants in the area but I can tell you that it was very well equipped for whatever your cooking needs may be. With the Sea Oats being a smaller complex the beach area in front of the condo & the pool area were never over crowded, even while we were there for the Memorial Day Holiday. This was our first time to visit this area & it will not be our last!! We have decided that we have found our new vacation spot and hope that we can continue to rent from the Johnson's. They were extremely helpful & always easy to get in contact with. Leslie was always quick to respond with any questions & made sure that we had everything we needed to know prior to our visit. She had a lot of good suggestions as well. Some suggestions that we enjoyed while we were there would be to go to the Okaloosa Pier before sunset (the dolphins were numerous & the sunset was amazing), a few places to eat that we enjoyed were Stewby's ( a little bit of a drive, but very good, fresh shrimp), Fockers (best pizza & wings), & McGuire's (the best steak you'll ever eat). Thanks again to the Johnson's for sharing your condo with our family & we look forward to coming back real soon!

The View

  • 4 of 5

The view from the balcony is entrancing. We spent early morning hours in speechless absorption of that. The interior of the condo is comfortably furnished. The owners were extremely helpful: when we arrived the service provider for the television/cable had recently been into the condo and installed new equipment; a telephone call to the owner brought quick resolution to that!! Compliments to you, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson. Since we have ceiling fans in the house where we live, we appreciated that there were ceiling fans in every room. When we asked the beach service to have chairs and an umbrella reserved for us, written notes were made, and the service was ready early.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fabulous! Everything was very clean and in good working order. Kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals. Both beds are very nice. We loved the shower in the master bath!! The towels were really nice and fluffy too! It was very convenient to have the beach service included, this way we didn't have to worry about putting up our own umbrella, and only had to carry out one chair instead of our usual three. Okaloosa Island is an awesome vacation spot, this was our first visit, and we're sold. The beach was quiet & relatively uncrowded. Last but not least, Leslie is absolutely wonderful to work with! We look forward to returning in the near future!

Excellent Condo! Great time!

  • 5 of 5

This Destin Condo is very clean and updated with a beautiful view. The size of the condo was perfect for our family. We loved sitting on the deck in the morning and evening. The view of the beach and pool is wonderful. The decor is so cute with all of the unique crabs and artwork by the owner. The kitchen is spacious, clean and lovely. It had everything we needed to make a quick meal. The master bedroom is comfortable with a large shower. We had a minor problem with the AC temperature, but the owners were quick to respond and had a maintenance tech over right away. The pool is just the right size and the water temperature was warm. The beach and beach service are excellent! There is also a nice lady and other gentlemen who are always cleaning around the grounds. We went to bed around 10:30-11 each night and it was nice and quiet. We didn't hear any noise. We would definitely return to this unit if we visit Destin again.
