About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located in the popular Island Princess Condo. great beach frontage, spacious units that families love. This is perfect for three couples to share, as each bedroom has its own bath. It is also perfect for a large family as the Sofa in the Great Room also makes out into a double-size bed. Both the Master with the king-size bed and the great room have floor to ceiling windows over looking the Gulf of Mexico. Most of our tenants walk in and say WOW as the views are great. Miles of undisturbed soft, stunningly white sand, with gentle dunes sea oats and the breathtaking colors of the water is your view from the nice size balcony and the full wall of mirrors in the great room, which bring the outside right into the unit. We do accommodate guests that have a service animal. If you need a sand wheel chair for the beach that is available also thru the beach service. This condo does not allow pets except for the owners that bring their own. But we do accommodate people with handicaps. Florida frowns with dogs on the beach, so need to make you aware of that. We do have a place to walk the dogs within the condo property.

The decor is light, bright Florida Colors. The kitchen is fully equipped with Corian Counter tops ,Newer upscale Appliances, Cabinets full of dishes, Pans and small appliances to make your time there fun. The side by side refrigerator has filtered water and an ice maker. We provide dishwasher detergent, coffee filters. full size Washer & Dryer. Dryer has steam cycle to remove wrinkles caused by the suitcase.

The bedrooms have bamboo floors, but the rest of the Condo is all Ceramic Tile. There is a desk all set up to plug in your lap top w/DSL for keeping up, your e mail. (WiFi anywhere, including poolside and on the beach). Covered Parking so you do not have to go out and get into a hot car to go shopping or out for dinner. There are quite a few nice places to eat close by, some within walking distance. Call me if you want some recommendations.

Our price includes Umbrella Service with two chairs. Saves you a place on the beach each day, plus less for you to carry down. 3/1 thru 10/31. I try to keep extra sand chairs in the unit for your use but they keep disappearing. I do not know if they get left on the beach.. If they are there take care of them and brush the sand off before bringing them into the unit. (Do not leave them outside the door as the grounds people pick them up as they are a trip hazard for people walking by.)

All the bedrooms all have flat screen TV. The Great Room has a 46 inch flat screen and Blu Ray disk Player. We have HD TV provided in all the rooms. Master has a 40 inch, 30 in 1 bedroom and 20 in the other. The Sony Music system has an I pod station. (There are some movies there but they seem to come & go. We have wifi throughout the condo, at the pool and on the beach. Codes will be sent with instructions a week prior to your arrival

We are close to the least used elevator and there are stairs right beside it. If you want the exercise, go down Use the staircase to the right of the elevator.

About Dilla Goedert, Owner

I love to read & chat with all the people from all over the world that come to the Island Princess every year. You will also like the staff that keep the condo in good repair and the grounds men who keep the pool and landscaping very pretty. My husband loves to fish, wading out into the water. One day a neighbor caught a small shark just right for the bar ba que grill. This spring they were catching snapper.

Dilla Goedert, Owner purchased this condo in 2001

Why Dilla Goedert, Owner chose Ft Walton Beach

We love the white sand beach, with the gentle incline to deeper water, the fishing and sea life that we see from our balcony. We plan to live in this unit when we retire. Okaloosa Island is away from the bustle of Destin but still close enough if we want to go there. And of course the sand is white & soft.

What makes this condo unique

We are close to many golf courses. Boat rentals and deep sea fishing oportunities are close by.

Mainly I love to walk in the surf in the morning and visit with all the fishermen trying their luck. Watching them bring a few in and continuing on down the beach. There are plenty of eating establishments to walk to. We have covered parking so if you do not want to drive you do not have to get into a hot car to go to lunch or dinner. The kitchen is fully equipped. I have little time for cooking at home because of work so I cook a lot here. We even have a coffee maker that has a hot water station if some of the family are tea drinkers and some want coffee. You will need to add and empty the water though it is not plumbed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So happy you could come to enjoy our second home. Hope you are doing ok back in the cold Winter and will come again. I wish we could get away from it too also here is a lot warmer than your home area

The condo was just as it is pictured.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The kitchen was the most stocked kitchen we have ever had in a rental. The furniture was very comfortable. The view from the balcony was breath taking. We watched dolphins everyday swim by. The beach chairs were a wonderful touch and used almost everyday. Dilla was fantastic to work with and very easy to get a hold of. If you get a chance this is a condo worth renting! Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Owner's Response: Our condo in Florida is our 2nd home. I have no time for cooking at home because of my job. So my time in Florida I cook and sit on the beach. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come again.

What a beautiful view of the gulf!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed to have a great stay on Okaloosa Island! It was neat, clean , and well equipped. The view of the gulf from the 5th floor balcony was breathtaking. We have always stayed in Destin in the past, but really enjoyed our stay on Okaloosa Island. We will definitely be back to this condo again!

Owner's Response: Your remarks are the same thoughts we had and the reason we bought this place many years ago. Its a great view even on a rainy day that you get sprinkles and have to head in. Spacious enough for our large family to join us for some of our vacations.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay... The property was just what we needed to enjoy a wonderful vacation... Everything we needed was at our fingertips... The view from the balcony made morning coffee taste even better!! The best part about the whole experience was how easy Dilla was to work with... Not only have I found a new vacation property, I feel like I have a new friend!!

Wonderful condo, Fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in this unit. Perfect for Us, my son & daughterinlaw and our 2 granddaughters. Kitchen is well stocked to cook quick meals for lunch. It's home away from home but with a Great view. My granddaughters got up early to watch the dolphins every morning. Only about a mile to a grocery store. Gulfarium close by. Beach is not overcrowded. We are already planning our next trip.

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
Car: necessary

Most days we see dolphins from the balcony. We have seen manta rays along the beach and a lot of jumping fish some mornings.

There are eating establishments within walking distance down the beach or by sidewalk along Santa Rosa Blvd. Call me if you want to go someplace for a special night out and I will make a recommendation
