About Ron or Julie Faulk

My family and I discovered Okaloosa Island in 2004 and felt it was the perfect place to vacation. We loved the quieter beaches and more laid back family atmosphere. After 10 years of vacationing every year on Okaloosa Island, we had the opportunity to purchase a condo at the Island Princess. We want our guests to feel like they are visiting our home instead of a rental condo. We want to share our home with your family so that you may experience many happy memories at the beach with your families.

Ron or Julie Faulk purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ron or Julie Faulk chose North West Florida

We have direct access to the pool, hot tub, and beach/ocean with no stairs or elevators to wait on. Plus, covered parking just steps from our front door. There is also free daily beach set up (umbrella and 2 chairs) March-October. With 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, there is plenty of room for two families.

What makes this condo unique

First floor, no steps or elevators. Covered parking.

3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Private fenced outdoor patio area. Just walk out the back door and we are the closest condo to the beach. Ideal for families because you can sit on the patio and watch the kids in the pool. There is a loveseat and two chairs on the patio. There is also an outside container with beach toys for your use.

Car: recommended

Okaloosa Island is a barrier island with sugar white sands and emerald green water. It is 6 miles from Destin--close enough to the attractions of Destin but far enough away from the traffic and crowds. Once you discover this gem of an island, you will never look back!!

Welcome to the Family

  • 5 of 5

Walking through the door of this condo and you feel like you've walked into you own home! The colors are beautiful, the decor is perfect and you have a feeling of love and warmth.

My Family of 4 and my Parents felt very much at home and there was more than enough room with extremely comfortable amenities. I very much appreciated the fact there was a large assortment of cooking accessories as our family does a lot of cooking at home. Add the fact the kitchen has a huge counter top and bench bar area and we had the perfect setup for making memories with food and fun.

Also, since we have an infant child the fact the condo had multiple high-chairs and pack-n-play there was invaluable.

Just out the back door is the extra large patio and instant access to the pool and beach. It's literally about 20 steps to the beautiful white sand beaches!

The owners have gone through great measures to ensure your stay is a wonderful experience and they also just seem like wonderful people who genuinely care about their guest . I can't recommend this home enough!

Everything perfection!

WOW! All the other reviews are spot on! I can only add that you will not meet nicer people to rent from. We had twin 18-month granddaughters and a five y.o. with us. So, we really appreciated the huge toy basket full of great toys and the collection of books. There were TWO high chairs and and even pool toys available. BTW, we have always taken our own hand/body, dishwasher, and laundry soap when renting from VRBO, and even though we used our own, we found that Ron and Julie go above and beyond to provide for all your needs. I should also mention that we noticed and appreciated the high quality hand soaps and lotions. Nice touch ! We've already booked next year!

What an awesome week our family enjoyed at the Faulk's home! It truly felt like we were just at home...comfy beds, clean surroundings, beach towels, plenty of beach toys, convenient parking spot, well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer included, easy access to pool and ocean, etc. The only thing missing was view of ocean from our condo, but we knew that going into it and chose convenience with toddlers over view. Thanks for a great beach vacation!

O.K....that said....I DON'T WRITE REVIEWS!! so, I take key board to hand, to report a GREAT place to stay!!! We have been going to the Destin/Ft Walton area since 1975. We have owned a condo, and we have rented. From San Destin to Ft Walton. I'm not buying this condo(haha), but I know "pride of ownership" when I see it. Owners provide a nice place, with many features that typically seem not to be expected anymore...All the way from the beach service, to the maid service!! It appears to be a team effort....baby items are also a nice touch, as are the remaining "little" items, like dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, and coffee filters(don't even get me started about the t.p.)...these items, while not deal changer, indicate the care taken by the cleaning staff, as well as the owners....I enjoyed my stay, and my granddaughter said " it was the best place she has ever stayed"....she is 4 year old....but I trust her judgment....

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated our effort to make you feel "at home". You were wonderful renters and we hope to have you as our guests again. Thanks for sharing your grand daughters response on this being her "best vacation". That is our goal for all of our guests. We don't want you to have to worry about all the little things such as soap, toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, coffee filters, etc. We want our guests to relax and enjoy!!

Thanks for the accommodations. Great condo, clean, comfortable and up to date.. Perfect access to pool and beach. Would be great for kids. We felt like we were at home, except for the ocean at the back door!
