About Rebecca Mooney

Rebecca and Shannon have three young children: Noah [11], Sam [9] & Christabel [7].

We live in the Greater New Orleans area.

Rebecca Mooney purchased this condo in 2011

Why Rebecca Mooney chose Ft Walton Beach

Before purchasing this home, we enjoyed renting from various owners on the Island.

We wanted our own vacation home on the Island so that we could enjoy vacationing here with the kids for years to come!

What makes this condo unique

The First Floor is a must when it comes to Convenience for us and Safety for our 3 little ones!

The fact that the unit is freshly remodeled and updated to our style, gives us that extra piece of mind.

We always find the Views and Sounds of the Beach & Sea Life Relaxing and Unforgettable!

We fell in love with Okaloosa Island!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 3 1/2 months mid-December through March 2018 in this condo and it was perfect for us. Rebecca and Shannon were very responsive to any questions or needs. As full-time travelers for over 3 years, I look very closely at responsiveness, WiFi, cooking, view and a nicely decorated unit. This fits the bill.

As has been noted before, the view is super and we spent many hours relaxing on the patio, even if we had to bundle up. (The winter was extremely and unseasonably cold!) The patio is snug and is a shelter from most of the wind. Still, we had many sunny and beautiful days. My favorite part was being able to walk 15 minutes down the beach to no buildings or people....just miles of white sand, shells and wildlife. The buildings are low due to air restrictions with Eglin AFB on the other end of the island. A quick drive to Destin brings you to all the shops and restaurants with Okaloosa Island being quiet and more serene.

As a cook, I appreciated all the pots and pans and serving pieces. The unit was very clean and well appointed, perfect for couples with young children, too. In the winter the unit is populated with many Snowbirds who are friendly. We even joined the Destin Snowbird Club, with over 2,200 members. It had lively meetings and was a ball!

Since it is so close to the beach, we would often take our chairs and pop down for just an hour. Other times we would spend the whole day, keeping a close watch out for the dolphins and pelicans. Beginning in March, two beach chairs and an umbrella are provided, which is a wonderful convenience.

Our favorite things were happy hour at Harry T's, Naval Air Museum @ Pensacola with a stop off at Joe Patty's to buy Royal Red shrimp and have beignets, LuLu's (Jimmy Buffet's sister) and McGuires for their lunch specials and beer.

Thank you Shannon and Rebecca for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: Maribeth, Thank you for choosing to stay at our 'beach-home-away-from-home.' As you stated, our place is close to the end of the 'inhabited part' of the island - so, it's easy to get to that really really quiet place. Thanks for taking care of the place; communicating the goings-on; and performing some maintenance, when necessary! Hope you continue to enjoy your world travels! Shannon & Rebecca

This is our third time to stay at this condo and we absolutely love it! It fits our family of 4 perfectly! Everything we need is in this condo and being on the first floor is a huge plus! Thank you to the owners in keeping this a clean condo and family oriented! We will definitely be back next summer!

First floor unit with great Gulf view

  • 5 of 5

First-floor access makes for easy in and out but this unit still has great views of the Gulf. Two beach chairs and an umbrella set up for you daily was part of the deal ( i think that is seasonal). The open kitchen was well appointed for foodies like us. Deep beach and incredible crystal clear emerald waters top it off. "I'll be back."
