About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a spacious, 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit with upgrades such as remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops, new ceiling fans, and lighting fixtures. Four new Smart HD Flat screen TV's in 4 rooms. Rent a minimum of 7 nights in the Summer months (Saturday to Saturday), or 3 nights the rest of the year!

Enjoy the third floor unobstructed view of the beautiful white sand from the custom built balcony furniture. High Speed Wireless internet service is provided. All 3 bedrooms, as well as the living room, are equipped with cable television. The kitchen features a convenient pantry closet for storing groceries or other items. Get tired of all those beach toys in your way? This unit has a large utility room for all those toys, bags and whatknots that get in your way in most condos. It also has a breakfast bar which seats 2. A large dining room table seats 6. View the beautiful gulf from the living room, the master bedroom, or the comfortable balcony. The balcony is accessible through both the living room and the master bedroom. Balcony furniture consists of 1 full length lounge chair, 2 tall bar chairs for better view of the beach, and 1 bar height table. The eclectic décor throughout reflects colorful contemporary, tropical, and beach cottage styles.

This condo is located on the third floor which is the perfect height. Plenty high to see over the sand dunes and not so high you get a nose bleed!. This is a small 42 unit condo complex. No standing in line to jump in the pool like the big complexes. No trying to catch a ray of sunshine or a glimpse of the ocean sitting in the third row of umbrellas. Seldom are there more than 8 to 12 umbrellas along the beach in front of this complex. It's like your own little private piece of the beach.

The fishing pier is located less than two miles east along the beach. Wyndam Resort's outdoor restaurant and bar are just about a half mile walk east along the beach. And just about a half mile walk west along the beach is the end of all development on Okaloosa Island. Enjoy your own private walk for miles with just you, the ocean, and the sand!

Feel comfortable walking, or even letting the kids walk, just a few blocks down quiet Santa Rosa Blvd to a Tom Thumb convenience store for snacks. A few more blocks and you're at the intersection of Santa Rosa Blvd and Hwy 98 where there are 3 gift shops. Don't try that on hwy 98 in Destin!

You are less than 2 miles from the Black Pearl, Crab Shack and the Gulfarium. You can get to Crab Island and McGuires Irish Pub quicker than you can from most condos in Destin and you are only about 10 minutes from Big Kahuna's Water Park.

About Angie Sentell

Owners are residents of Arkansas who have frequently visited the Gulf Coast for over 20 years.

Why Angie Sentell chose North West Florida

The location is quiet but still close to many attractions. Santa Rosa Blvd. has very little traffic, especially at night when you are ready to kick back and relax. Emerald Towers West is a relatively small complex, having 42 units, which results in fewer people along the beach directly in front of the building. Located about 3-4 blocks away is a convenience store which is handy for purchasing items such as ice, snacks, or soft drinks. However, a full service grocery store is less than a 5 minute drive back to the Miracle Strip Parkway. There you can find numerous restaurants, souvenir shops, clothing stores, historic downtown Fort Walton Beach, the Gulfarium, and the popular Okaloosa island fishing pier. If you desire to visit the attractions in the Destin area, the drive takes only 5-10 minutes, depending on the Hwy 98 traffic.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy relaxing and fun-filled days on the beach. After dark, grab a flashlight and hit the sand to hunt sand crabs. Reserve a private chartered deep sea fishing trip or join a party fishing boat. Big Kahuna’s Water Park in Destin is always a hit with kids of all ages. Indoor activities include shopping at the Santa Rosa Mall in Fort Walton or taking in a movie at one of the local theaters.

Had a wonderful time at this condo!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The condo was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. I wish the beds were a little more comfortable though. We brought our own pillows which helped. The fact that the rental comes with a beach set-up is also a plus. The Management came right over when we called about the kitchen lights . The best restaurants we tried were the Louisiana Lagniappe and McGuire's Irish Pub...outstanding!

Overall, I would recommend to other travelers🌴󝀼󝌴🌴󝀼󝌴

Owner's Response: Taking your own pillows was a great idea! Everyone seems to have such different preference for pillows. We recently upgraded/restocked much of the kitchen cooking equipment, so it's good to know you found everything you needed. Hope future renters will find your nice review helpful. Thanks so much!

Wonderful vacation right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week at the beach! Condo had plenty of space for everyone (3 large bedrooms and bathrooms). Kitchen was well stocked. The place was clean and furniture was nice (our son loved the leather sofa). Loved the extra beach chairs and rafts. Had fun attempting to kayak in the ocean (rented right on the beach by condo). Enjoyed lots of great restaurants! Would rent again! Only recommendation...keyless lock would make it more convenient.

Owner's Response: Sounds like a terrific vacation! Thanks for the feedback. A couple of other guests have mentioned the inconvenience of our current key/lock system, so we will be looking at other options this fall. Thanks again!

Very Nice!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed here for a family vacation and really enjoyed it! The condo is very big---3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The view is AMAZING!!! I would have given it 5 stars except for a few minor things. The condo only comes with 1 key and we had 6 people staying there so that was kind of inconvenient but we made it work. The Master bathroom has no door on it which was fine for us, but make sure if you are sharing this room with someone, you don't mind them seeing you in the shower or sitting on the potty! We did attempt to contact the maintenance lady, Jackie, with a question, and she did not answer her phone and her voicemail was full---we got it figured out so it worked out ok. The other minor thing is the pool---it is teeny tiny! There is NO shade at all at the pool and can get crowded easily. We solved that by taking the kids to swim at night which was fine for us. Overall, it was a great week and we would stay there again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your week at the beach and figured out how to deal with the few minor issues you mentioned. We have often considered redesigning the master suite so that the bathroom has it's own door, but we have not figured out the best way to do this yet. It is in our future plans though! Hope you will visit the beautiful Okaloosa Island again!

Our family had such a wonderful week here. My husband, me, our ten yr old son, and our mothers enjoyed a week in this beautiful condo. We had more than we needed. The kitchen had everything! The location right on beach (the least crowded area of beach). Very convenient for our mothers to walk to pool or beach! We feel very fortunate to have stayed here. Would definitely return!!
