Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and another family shared this beautiful condo during Spring Break. Unfortunately the weather was uncooperative, but we still had a great time! The condo was perfect for 2 families of 4! And the view is spectacular! Being on a corner unit brought so much more light & scenery. Having a washer & dryer in the unit was also a big plus! The location was great - not in the hustle and bustle of Destin, but close enough if you wanted to go there. There are many nearby restaurants - Fokkers Pub and McGuires were a couple of our favs. Karaoke at AJ's was so much fun! We would definitely consider renting this unit again! Staying on the beach is great! Thank you Sherrie!!

Endless View

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying we had an excellent week and perfect weather. The moment you walk into the condo the views are breathtaking!! Being the end unit with windows on two sides opening up to the Gulf, the view is unprecedented. During the summer months they have a fireworks show on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from Okaloosa pier and once again the balcony provides the perfect spot to take it all in. Like all the other reviews have said the condo is very well laid out and fully equipped with everything you would need to make for a relaxing stay. We cooked several meals in the kitchen during our stay because we knew that most restaurants couldn't beat the view we had from the condo. With the job that I have I stay in hotels about three nights a week, so I know exactly what I am looking for with my accommodations. The big difference with my stay here is it felt like home as opposed to a hotel which was an added bonus. Thanks Sherrie for opening up your condo and letting us enjoy it. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Been vacationing on Okaloosa island for about 40 years and have stayed at many condos. Sherrie Deal's condo at the Island Princess is very spacious, very well equipped and very clean. The wrap around balcony is awesome and the view of the beach is the best! Upon arrival we very graciously pleased to be provided with two bags of ice waiting for us in the freezer. Sherrie's assistant, Lisa, also dropped off some brand new ice trays for us if needed to make more ice. 15 minutes after our arrival we received a greeting from two people following up on cleaning staff to see that everything was clean and provided to our satisfaction. To us that showed Sherrie went above and beyond. More than amble towels are provided. Gated terrace is a very nice addition to store wet towels, toys and "stuff"! It was just my husband and I renting the unit, but if you have kids or many people, this unit is great and can easily sleep 10! We struggled finding a pet friendly condo and this certainly met our needs, and the condo was very clean and did not smell of "dogs"! Communication with Sherrie was always very prompt and very courteous. I would highly recommend Sherrie and her condo! Thanks for a GREAT stay!

Great Vacation-will stay here again, SOON we hope!

  • 5 of 5

One of our best vacations ever, loved the condo and the location. Wonderful views from the balcony of the ocean and the bay. This place has it all: location, shopping and restaurants. Seen dolphins multiple times almost every day. Loved the outside area to store the beach accessories. Will definitely stay in this place again on our next trip to Okaloosa Island. Spent a lot time in the past looking for the ideal pet friendly place, our search is now over, cause we have found it!!!!

P.S. The owner and her assistant were both wonderful and very helpful in dealing with us in booking our trip! Thanks, Sherrie and Lisa

Awesome Beach Destination!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a condo for a family vacation, this is the one! It has every thing you will need to make your beach stay spectacular! We loved the view! The wrap around veranda and windows really bring the beach right to you! The condo itself is very spacious and clean. We love to cook so we took advantage of the well stocked kitchen and the bbq pit! All the rooms are well appointed and very comfy! The beds were nice, I mean very supportive!! That matters as you get older! LOL The master bath is spa-like! Having three bedrooms and three baths with a sofa sleeper gave us plenty of room to spread out and not feel crowded! Parking was easily accessible and the elevator is right outside the unit! What I called the "courtyard", was nice for storing all your beach toys and not having to bring them into the condo! Everyone had plenty of room and enjoyed themselves immensely!

This beach is paradise! There is no beach in the world like this beach! Look it up! Sherrie also provides 2 beach chairs and an umbrella with your rental which is an awesome bonus!

The beachside pool is great! We hit the pool every day after the beach!

Sherrie is awesome to work with. We had one small concern and she took care of it immediately!

Our favorite restaurants are The Crab Trap, Rockin' Taco, Old Bay Steamer, The Back Porch, and The High Tide! We also bought fresh seafood from Sexton's and cooked it on the grill! YUM!

Many thanks again to Sherrie! We look forward to making more memories with our loved ones again next year!!
