Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath condo w/hallbunks directly on the Gulf

Enjoy a stay at the Blue Dolphin condo on Okaloosa Island. Our 3rd floor corner unit sits directly on the gulf and offers amazing views of the ocean. Blue Dolphin is 4 story 10 unit complex which means no crowded elevators or pool.

Feel at home in the spacious and tastefully decorated living area. Whip up your favorite meal in the fully stocked kitchen. Or simply relax on the balcony as you watch the waves wash up on shore.

This unit can comfortably sleep up to 8 people. It has a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, a queen in the 2nd bedroom , hall bunk beds and a sleeper sofa.

Okaloosa Island is the perfect get-away destination. Start your morning doing some shelling on the beautiful white beaches. Find your spot on the beach and enjoy the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella that come with this unit. Go fishing off the pier, shopping on the Boardwalk or catch a dolphin show at the Gulfarium. If shopping is high on your priority list, visit the Santa Rosa Mall just a few miles away in Mary Esther or hit the famous Outlet Mall in Destin.

Water Park fans have to make a trip to The Big Khuana Water Park located just 8 miles away , across the Mid-Bay Bridge in Destin. And if you visit this area, there's a great putt-putt place and an incredible frozen custard place called Shakes.

And of course no trip to Florida is complete without enjoying some delicious seafood. Tons of choices, Floyd's Shrimp House, The Crab Shack, Old Bay Steamer, The Back Porch over in Destin, The Magnolia Grill across the Ft. Walton Bridge (a personal favorite).

So much to do, and all too soon , it's time to pack up and head home. Grab some red velvet, cinnamon, or chocolote filled donut holes from The Donut Hole Bakery and Cafe at the foot of the Mid-Bay Bridge for the ride.

Why Deann M. Howell chose North West Florida

great location 1 mile down Santa Rosa Blvd. Less Crowded area, not far from the heart of Destin

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a quick note of thanks for the use of the beautiful condo. We had a fabulous time and the place is gorgeous. My daughter in law kept saying it was the best vacation she'd ever had



Ready to come back already. Lol.

Thanks again,

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family vacation. Everything was clean, orderly, and user friendly. Beach set up daily was perfect and the location was convenient to everything. Short drive to all attractions but not congested area. Elevators were not crowded and parking was available and not difficult at all. Plenty of room; a little walk to the BOARDWALK but not bad at all. The beach and pool as well as the grounds were VERY clean. Thank you Ms. Marnie for sharing your condo with my family and special thanks to Deann for patience and answering my million questions. Words cannot describe my appreciation. My mom was able to set on the balcony and watch us at the pool and the beach. DID i mention how CLEAN this beach is......the water was clear as far as I walked out. If you are looking for downtime that is peaceful and affordable this is the PLACE for you.

this property is just peachy... loved it.

  • 5 of 5

we travel from Illinois each year, and love Okaloosa Island. We have now found our new favorite spot.

this unit is so intimate and low key.

the beds were comfortable, the place was really nice and clean. Deann was very helpful and even gave us a couple of great dining places that we would not have ever found. I loved every second of our stay, and cant wait to come back in the spring.

low density. right on the beach, not crowded. the unit was comfortable, and clean. The sofa is brand new and there are windows all around, nice corner unit.

Deann was wonderful to deal with. I emailed her Saturday when we arrived and we needed a new blender, by 5 pm we were turning Margaritas on the balcony..

will definitely be back, this property is fantastic.

Poorly maintained

  • 1 of 5

The location is great and the proximity to the beach can't be beat. Other than that, it's a No Go.

We didn't have a bathtub stopper, had to use a bathrag to stop the drain, the balcony light was out, the refrigerator was missing a shelf, the master bath had mold, and the couch was in Terrible shape.

I Sent several emails to the owner and spoke with maintenance. Finally, someone showed up late Thursday when we had a Saturday check out.

The most timely people were the house cleaners who arrive at 0950am on the day of check out.

The place needs a Lot of TLC. We won't be back.

Unhappy guest.

  • 3 of 5

This unit appeared to be clean upon arrival. Very disappointed after taking closer look. There is a reason you don't see a picture of the sofa in these pictures of the unit, it was filthy and broken down, the first thing I did was cover with a sheet so we could sit on it. The owner offered to get the couch cleaned but who want deal with that on vacation. The air return was covered in dirt and dust, the owner insisted it was rust from the salt air even after I emailed pictures she insisted it was rust. I took a broom and swept away some of the "rust". I would stay at this location again just not unit 301 again.
