About Kim Lang
I live in FWB so I am close if you need me.
Why Kim Lang chose Ft Walton Beach
Great for family's. Unit sleeps 8. Very close to the pool
What makes this Condo unique
Small complex. Uncrowded beaches. Only ten minutes to Destin.
Not Very Comfortable or Peaceful
The good: It is an easy walk to the beach. Property management was mostly quick to respond to several broken or missing items. AC was cool throughout the unit. A little view of the ocean from the dining table that was nice. Easy to get to Destin (though traffic getting back can be awful depending on time).
The poor: The biggest issue was the poor night sleep. We tried both queen beds and they were both awful. Prepare for back pain every morning and noise when turning over. Additionally, as others have noted, construction of the neighbor hotel is still a thing. Nothing can be done about that, just prepare to be up when the tractors shake the whole unit at 5:30 am.
The other major issue for us was that it was not really a unit for 8 people. While there was an excessive amount of sheets, there was no extra blankets to make the pull out bed in the living room. We ended up using the beach towels for our kids as blankets. We also couldn't feed 8 people around the table (not enough chairs in the unit).
The onsite pool has a capacity of 10 people. So if you have a party of 8 like us, it doesn't take much from the other units to fill it up. (I recommend getting a pass to Big Kahunas in Destin for non-beach swimming/ water play).
Finally, the unit gets very bright early. We clipped some towels on to the blinds to keep from being blasted awake at sunrise. The unit could use some curtains.
The management company brought over a can opener, missing beach toys the day we asked. They did not bring a better kitchen knife. We ended up buying one so that no one got hurt try to chop vegetables with a serrated knife with a loose handle.
Overall: It is an ok place for 6 people if you don't mind the poor quality mattresses.
Sunset Cottage 5C

Sunset Cottage 5C-Highly Recommend
Beautiful home away from home! Very clean and well maintained. We stayed Easter weekend and this place had everything imaginable to prepare our Easter dinner and entertain our guests. While we weren’t enjoying the condo and it’s amenities we were enjoying the beach on Okaloosa that we were able to get to with just a 5 minute walk. We really enjoyed our stay! We will definitely be returning in the future!
Love the space
We loved having the extra space of the two bedrooms with one upstairs. We usually just get a one bedroom with bunks and queen sofa sleeper.
Had a little mishap with our door lock stopped working and one of us had to stay inside the condo so we wouldn’t get locked out. The property management was on it however their locksmith vender wasn’t able to resolve the issue until after 4pm. Slight inconvenience for one of us to stay inside all day until that point but these things happen. We are cooks and kitchen is well stocked. (Could use sharper knives) the 3 balconies was a great too. We were able to sleep 6 very comfortably. Thank you!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We can not apologize enough about the lock- we contacted the locksmith, as soon as it happened. - we have gotten with them on a more timely response. We will address the knives and hope you will return
We had a wonderful time in Sunset Cottages 5c. The condo was clean and well stocked with everything we needed including beach towels! Even though it is not right on the beach, you still have views and sounds of ocean. And we have stayed at the larger condo complex next door and we all felt like we were closer to the beach here. No long walk to the elevator and then waiting on it and then another walk out to the beach. At this condo you just walk down the stairs and to the walkway to the beach. Less than 3 minutes! The heated pool was a big hit with the kids. We also rented some items. Everything was delivered the day we arrived and was perfect. I would highly recommended renting this condo or any other properties through Kim. They made sure everything was perfect!
We will be coming back for sure.
The condo was convient to all the local attractions and a short walk to the beach!! Didn’t like the 3 flight of stairs, but that didn’t stop us!! The noise from the construction next door was a little distracting, but overall a good experience.
We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. This condo is located in a very peaceful, relaxing area and is just minutes from amazing restaurants and entertainment. We do apologize for any inconvenience the construction was but are pleased that you had a good time and please remember that returning guests do receive a 10% discount.
