About Betty Smart

Married 51 years. Just retired . Life has been good.

Betty Smart purchased this condo in 2001

Why Betty Smart chose Fort Walton Beach

In 2001, not looking to buy anything, we were on vacation on our favorite beach here at Okaloosa Island. My husband happened to notice an ad in the paper for a condo that had a lot more space than the units we had stayed in before. So out of curiosity we went to look at it. Our small granddaughters were with us and it inspired us to look at it because it was large enough for our whole family. The rest as they say is history. We would not trade all of these family memories for anything. Having added 3 grandsons along the way has made it even better.

What makes this condo unique

The biggest benefit is feeling like this is home while we are here. We love coming down at other times like Thanksgiving with the whole family coming. It is just a great place to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks! And thanks for sharing your condo with us. It was a wonderful place to spend our family vacation and everyone had a great time!

Very nice family place right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice family and extended family stay. The place was large enough to accommodate all of us and we loved it. The place is right on the beach and we enjoyed every minute of it. The pool is very nice and is just steps from the beach. There is plenty of restaurants and activities within a short drive. This is a great place for family's to stay at the beach.

Beach home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It was another fabulous vacation and the condo keeps getting better! We truly feel comfortable and at home when we stay. Betty and Jimmy are always a pleasure to work with and help to ensure that we have a great vacation. I am thankful that I became connected with them and found this gem of a unit! We love the location since the beach is never too crowded and my boys LOVE the pool where the water is just right!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay for a week at the beach! You are close to restaurants, the pier, and all other attractions. The porch view is beautiful even though you are on the side of the building. The kitchen includes EVERYTHING you would ever need. We had three families on our vacation with a total of 9 people and the condo was the perfect size! I would recommend this place to anyone! Not to mention that Mrs.Smart was super easy to work with!
