Would do it again

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. The unit has an amazing view, location was great, all of the beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen had all the necessary supplies. The only complaint we can think of was the lack of toilet paper and tissues. Each bathroom only had what was on the roll and then one small extra roll under the sink. For a family of four, staying four days, this did not last long. Checking out was a little hectic, packing, making sure we took off all the linens from the beds and put them into a laundry basket, along with the towels, making sure all trash cans were empty and trashed disposed of, and running the dishwasher. Things to keep in mind when planning your morning on your day of checkout.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo. We also love the view. We try to include everything you would need in the kitchen and glad you enjoyed the comfortable beds and location. As stated in the condo instructions we supply a start up of toilet paper and paper towel as that is the normal procedure for our condo complex. We would love to have you as a guest in the future Matt and Tina Schultz

Perfect Getaway From Winter & What a View

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to relax and play some golf because we had some winter time blues. The condo was a perfect fit. Everything that we needed was available at the condo. It was a well-furnished kitchen and we also used the bbq grills located by the pool. The condo was very clean, the furniture comfortable, and the bed was very comfortable. We both slept great. The location was great. It was away from the Destin crowd but still only a short drive to all that Destin offered. There are many great golf courses and restaurants just minutes away from the condo. The condo offered great access to the pristine Fort Walton Beach. We enjoyed many morning and evening walks along the beach. And the views of the sunrise and sunsets from the 6th floor balcony is beyond description. Tina and Matt thank you for sharing your home with us. You were always just a phone call away if we needed anything (which we didn't). We would recommend this condo for anyone travelling to the Gulf.

This condo was what we had hoped for and more.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Okaloosa Island on several occasions and this condo and location was by far the best stay we have experienced. The condo was well maintained, comfortable and the view was fantastic. The island has much less congestion and crowds than Destin with great places to eat and shop without getting caught up in traffic. The beach rental included was a plus as was the reserved parking space. Thank you Tina and Matt. We will be visiting again.

This is a real hidden Gem, well worth the cost!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Destin/Fort Walton Beach area many times and this is by far the best unit, location, and owners to deal with. The condo was in perfect condition with a great 6th Floor view. The real added bonus was that the dedicated parking spot was only a few feet from the elevator and the elevator was only a few fee away from the condo, easy in and out.

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with a rental by owner and it was fantastic. Matt and Tina's condo was exactly as advertised. The view was even more beautiful than the pictures show. It was awesome each time we walked through the front door to look straight out the sliding doors to the

Gulf. The beach service was a great benefit and the book of various activities and places to eat that was in the condo was helpful. We loved that the condo is in a quiet area, but just minutes away from Fort Walton Beach and Destin. We're looking forward to coming back!

We recently purchased Emerald Isle 600 which has an unobstructed SPECTACULAR view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Fort Walton Beach has one of the most beautiful white sandy beaches in the world. Emerald Isle is located off a dead-end blvd with less traffic which makes it easier to get to where you want to go.

The entire condo complex has been completely renovated (4.5 million dollar renovation)with high quality appliances and furniture which includes new top quality Serta Eurotop Mattresses and brand new linens. The kitchen has a beautiful raised ceiling which includes ceiling fan and excellent lighting with more than ample cooking utensils for your cooking needs or desires. The counter tops are made of corian which blend nicely with the white kitchen cupboards.

The entire condo is decorated with a beach theme.

This condo is located on the sixth floor above the sparkling swimming pool which directly faces the Gulf. The view is awesome and hard to beat.

You can enjoy it all on your vacation here in Fort Walton Beach. So much to do in the area you will probably run out of time to do it all and may want to return next year. The Okaloosa Fishing Pier is just down the street along with the Gulfarium and many restaurants to satisfy your hungry appetite.

Shopping is plentiful, boutiques and outlet malls are close by.

Dolphin cruises,deep sea fishing charters, rental of jet skis, pontoon boats, para or wind sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving are all available for your enjoyment. The Air Force Museum and History Museum are good to go to on a rainy day. Plenty to do with the kids are Big Kahuna's water park, The Track (mini golf, bumper cars, and go karts) or just relax at the pool or build sandcastles in the beautiful white sand. There are plenty of golf courses nearby for the avid golfers. We provide an ample Entertainment Guide for your convenience which includes restaurants, shopping and entertainment with our personal recommendations of our favorite ones. This will help you plan your week and enjoy all your valuable time for your vacation.

You can do it all or nothing at all while you stay with us.

We are located on the beautiful gulf with a spectacular view.

You can watch the dolphins from the balcony with your cup of coffee as they play in the Gulf of Mexico!
