Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath; sleeps 4

Our unit has an oversized bedroom with two queen beds, a large closet, fully equipped kitchen, and sleeper sofa in living room. Building has a large swimming pool and on-site laundry facility. Two large, flat screen TVs for your entertainment.

Our vacation home is located on beautiful Okaloosa Island. It is close to all water-related activities. The gulf is just across a small roadway, the harbor and Crab Island are approximately 5 miles away where the opportunities are endless: kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, boating, wildlife viewing. All the outlet shopping centers are close by, and for those who like antique shopping, look no further than downtown Fort Walton Beach. The pier is only 1.5 miles away along with plenty of night life, restaurants, and many activities for the kids including the Gulfarium, Fudpucker's restaurant and arcade, and Big Kahuna's water park.

The unit is artfully decorated with a beach motif. The unit was recently completely renovated with tile throughout, two queen beds in the oversized bedroom, pull-out sleeper sofa, and a fully equipped kitchen. The building is small and low key without the hassle of a parking garage or elevators. It has a large pool area with picnic tables and lounge chairs. Right next door is a Tom Thumb, making it convenient to pick up any forgotten items, grabbing a coffee in the morning, or a beverage for the beach.

Okaloosa Island is known for its beautiful, sugar sand beaches and emerald green water. The beach is only a few feet from the front door of our unit!

About Heather Massa

After saving up for years, we finally were able to purchase our dream vacation home in Florida's beautiful panhandle. After purchasing our place, we spent our Christmas holiday pulling up carpet, laying tile, painting, putting up blinds, and completing other rehab jobs to make this condo a place we are proud of and love. When we visit we love to do all Florida's panhandle has to offer: kayak, fish, snorkel, hike, boat, run, swim, and just enjoy time with friends and family. We have grown to love the area and the people who live there, and truly think of Okaloosa Island as our home away from home.

Heather Massa purchased this condo in 2011

Why Heather Massa chose Fort Walton Beach

This property is perfect for us because it is so close to the beach and all the activities we love to do without having the hectic feeling of a larger complex. Okaloosa Island feels like a private area away from all the crowds but still has any amenity one would want nearby.

Great little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice. Just steps to the beach and convenient to everything. It was just the right size for the 3 of us.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This little condo was just the right size for us, and was in a perfect location. My cousin and I stayed here over spring break, and it was great! The location is just far enough from the heart of Destin to have some peace and quiet, but close enough to drive in and out for restaurants throughout the day. The beach is literally across the street. Heather was so sweet and accommodating as well!

We just got back last night from staying here. Very nice, clean, had every thing we needed ! Our first trip to the ocean with our two little kids, we can not wait to return next summer. Condo was perfect for us, a convenient store right next door, and a few steps from the beautiful beach!

Great Place right by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great a place to say. We stayed from Friday to Monday in July. You could see the beach while standing at the front door. And it only took about 30 seconds to walk to the beach. The condo was clean and had enough space for us(2 people). There was an extra bed in the bedroom and a pullout in the living room if you had more people.

Also, we had to deal with a unique situation and the owner dealt with it immediately and professionally. We really appreciated her honesty.

We would definitely stay again.
