Owner purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Owner chose Ft Walton Beach
Our family has visited the Emerald Coast for many years and stayed at several different properties within the area. As Destin continues to grow, we loved the fact that Okaloosa Island was quiet and just laid back, simply away from all the hustle and bustle. We could stay on the island and relax or venture out with just a short drive over the bridge to Destin or Ft. Walton Beach to enjoy the activities and nightlife. We also loved the fact that all buildings on Okaloosa Island are 7 stories or lower, providing a more quaint, boutique condo atmosphere. The white sugar sand beaches and emerald green waters are one of a kind! The breathtaking views from our condo are amazing. Watching the dolphins play from the balcony everyday! We have the best of both worlds!
What makes this Condo unique
Quiet, away from the crowds, yet just a short drive if wanting activities and nightlife! THE VIEW! Smaller, boutique condo with easy access to the beach. DOLPHINS from the BALCONY!

Awesome condo with a great beach view.

A Perfect Week
We come down to this area at least once a year and I have to say that this is one of the nicest condos that we’ve stayed in. The building is smaller, only 3 units per floor, so it’s quiet and also very well maintained. Parking is plentiful and close. The unit itself is gorgeous. It is very comfortable and had everything we could possibly need. The pool is very nice too and we had it to ourselves most days. The owners were very responsive and the rental process couldn’t have been easier. We very much enjoyed spending our week here! Highly recommend Paradise Found!
What a gem!!
This condo is one of the nicest we have rented in the 20 years we have been using VRBO. The building itself is well-kept, quiet and away from the big-city feel of Destin. The condo faces south which means you have views of both the sunrise and sunset from your balcony. And the ocean--you can hear it 24/7. Our stay for the month of February started cool but warmed as the month progressed so we had plenty of use of the beach. The condo itself is decorated in a beach decor and each room is prettier than the next. And the ocean--you can see it 24/7. It is part of the decor. There are all the technical services you would want--TV, DVD player, Netflix, WiFi etc. We joined the local community center for exercise and some social events. We also visited several of the local attractions and dined out frequently. Renting from Kurt and Cindyann was pleasant and easy. They provided directions and suggestions making it very easy to settle in. I would highly recommend this experience. And did I mention the ocean...Kay Joslyn Feb. 1-28, 2018
Thank you so much for your kind words and wonderful review.

Beautiful retreat from the world.
We had a wonderful 11 days and hated to leave. The beach was steps away, we had the pool to ourselves and the condo had everything we would want. The decor is very soothing, beds comfy, and we saw dolphins swimming daily from our glorious view of the ocean on the balcony. We have paradise found for sure!
After spending a week in this beautifully updated condo we definitely found paradise. We enjoyed gorgeous views of white sand and the clear blue ocean from the balcony. We love Ft. Walton due to the beach being less crowded and then we drove only minutes into Destin to eat at some of our favorite resturants and enjoy some family activities. Kurt and Cindyann are awesome owners who communicated all of the details about the condo and who answered all questions right away. I can not wait to book again next year.
Thank you for the lovely review. We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay at "ParadiseFound."
We would love to have you stay with us again!

Smaller complex was perfect. Much preferred over huge resort condos.
This condo is beautiful with a wonderful patio. The decor is a lovely beach motif without being tacky. Very clean. Patio door opens wide if you want to enjoy the smell and sound from the ocean. The smaller complex meant quick and easy beach access which hasn't been our experience in the past staying at larger condos in Destin-just getting to the beach with all your gear and kids didn't feel like a job. The included chairs and umbrella was definitely a deciding factor for us, it's so convenient. Okaloosa Island has a slower local feel than Destin, but Destin was right down the road when we wanted to go. I would highly recommend staying here.
