About the property

1140 Square Foot Condo with direct Gulf Views from Living Room & Master Bedroom

We are the owners of this fourth floor 2 BR 2BA condo in Emerald Isle Beach Club. Our unit (410) has direct Gulf views from the living room, master bedroom, and balcony. Imagine waking up each day to see the beautiful Gulf water and white sandy beach. Check out the pictures to see the exact views from our condo (click for full-size with captions). A quick walk along the building brings you to the large beachside swimming pool, private boardwalk to the sand and surf, picnic patio with charcoal grills, tennis court, and the gorgeous white sugar-sand beach of the Emerald Coast.

The entire Emerald Isle complex underwent a year-long major renovation in 2016 with all new doors, windows, paint, elevators and amenities that include laundry rooms that accept Credit Cards. In addition, we have made major upgrades to our unit that include new living room furniture, flat-screen digital TVs in living room and both bedrooms, new cable channels, ceiling fans in living room and both bedrooms, a remodeled kitchen, remodeled master bath with walk-in tiled shower, and new vanities in both bathrooms.

Emerald Isle, with just 70 units, is family friendly as well as welcoming to snowbirds. Our unit says "beach vacation" the minute you step in. This all tiled condo has high speed internet, king bed in master bedroom, queen bed in 2nd BR; LR includes 50" flat screen wall-mounted TV plus VCR/DVD player. The sleeper sofa in the LR opens to make a queen bed, and we have a 4" thick foam "topper" that can be added for additional comfort. Our kitchen is fully furnished. Beach service (large umbrella and 2 chairs) is included with the unit from March 1-Oct 31 and is set up for you on the beach each day. The beautiful pool is heated in March and April, and in October and November.

Sliding doors from the living room and master bedroom provide access to the balcony that overlooks the Gulf. A small patio table and 4 chairs plus a chaise lounge provide a relaxing spot to spend some leisure time, listen to the waves, have your morning coffee, and watch for dolphins (a common sight).

Several golf courses are located within a 20 mile radius and great restaurants are close by on Okaloosa Island. Charter boats for deep sea fishing are 5 minutes from the condo. Downtown Fort Walton Beach and a shopping mall are only 10 minutes away, Publix Grocery is 3-1/2 miles from the condo, and a Tom Thumb convenience store is within walking distance.

EC Rider, the Okaloosa Island Transit Service has a bus stop (Route 20 - Stop 18 - Sailfish Drive) right in front of Emerald Isle Condos on Santa Rosa Blvd. Buses run Monday through Friday 7:30am - 6:30pm Memorial Day - Labor Day, arriving at each stop every 20 minutes. Winter schedules are slightly different.

About D. L. Kaltreider

My husband and I are retired educators and Pennsylvania natives who lived on a farm in Central PA for 30 years. In 2008 we moved to California to be close to our family (including our 2 grandsons). When they moved to Tennessee in 2013 we followed. We discovered the proximity and beauty of the Gulf Coast in 2014 and fell in love with the white sand and clear emerald waters of the Gulf. We became the owners of this condo in July 2015 and are excited to share it with others.

D. L. Kaltreider purchased this condo in 2015

Why D. L. Kaltreider chose Ft Walton Beach

We LOVE Okaloosa Island and Fort Walton Beach; they're less crowded than both Pensacola Beach (about an hour West) and Destin (just 8 miles East.) OI and FWB are family-oriented, with lots of activities. It's a reasonably short distance to/from our home in TN. When we found Emerald Isle, we felt that it would be just right for us: not too big, plenty of comfortable amenities, but without the impersonal "resort" feel of some of the larger complexes. We love the idea of having a little "piece of the beach" for our family to enjoy as our grandchildren grow up.

What makes this condo unique

Okaloosa Island is an unincorporated community on Santa Rosa Island, Okaloosa County, Florida. The island community uses Fort Walton Beach as a mailing address but is not actually part of that city. It is part of Florida's Emerald Coast and features spectacular sugar-white sand beaches.

The Island is bordered on the north by the Santa Rosa Sound Narrows (plus the cities of Fort Walton Beach & Mary Esther.) Choctawhatchee Bay & the city of Destin are our immediate neighbors to the Northeast & East. Our big beautiful "neighbors" to the south are the pristine white sand beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Enjoy water sports of all sorts in the area: swimming, boogie boarding, parasailing, snorkeling, & charter boat trips.

The 1262 ft long Okaloosa Island fishing pier is two miles “down the street” from the condo. The pier includes a shade structure, bait & tackle shop, pole rentals & restrooms. Since the pier has a commercial fishing license, you DO NOT need to buy a separate Florida fishing license to fish from it . You do have to pay a small fee as a part of admission if you want to fish. Rods, reels, and bait also are available.

NOTE: You DO need a current Florida license (visitor/shoreline 3-day, 7-day, or annual pass) IN ORDER TO FISH OTHER PLACES - surf, sound, or freshwater. Visitors' licenses are available online or at local sporting good stores, bait shops, Walmart, & more.

Gulf Coast life is enjoyable year round. There are activities & adventures, festivals & fun every season of the year.

A Tom Thumb convenience store is only a 5 minute walk east on Santa Rosa Blvd. Open 6 am - 11 pm, it has lots of essentials like snacks, milk, bread, eggs, soft drinks, sandwiches, beer, frozen foods, fresh brewed coffee, fresh fruit, fishing tackle & bait, bulk ice, beach supplies, sundries, plus an ATM. Need more? Publix Grocery is just 2 1/2 miles across the Brooks Bridge. Downtown Fort Walton Beach has numerous shops, & restaurants.

Wonderful Time in Florida

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for our week stay in Florida for us and our family. Our granddaughter loved the pool and the beach was beautiful.

The gulf was a little too rough for us to be in a lot but we loved playing on the beach and

staying in the shallow water. The view was beautiful and we will come back again some time.

SO RELAXING!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are both educators and we were looking for the perfect place for a relaxing break. This place was so warm with beautiful decor and detail. The owners were so friendly and attentive to all our needs. The condo met all our expectations and beyond. It was equipped with ALL the necessities of a wonderful vacation even beach chairs were provided. The view was beautiful. We could see porpoises swimming from our balcony. We ate at Dewey’s and McGuires Pub. Both places were phenomenal. The condo had a guide of all the wonderful places to eat and choices of entertainment. Of course if we didn’t want to go out, we had all the amenities to just cook a nice meal and stay in and watch a movie which the owners provided (nice selection) . I would recommend this nice homey condo for any family looking for an awesome vacation . We will definitely stay provided it’s available and not booked by someone who finds it first. SO blessed! Great find!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We are always delighted when someone who stayed in our condo indicates that they plan to return. We are beginning to build up a group of Emerald Isle Renters who are returning after a first visit. That makes us happy as we figure those folks view 410 as their home away from home on the Gulf Coast. There is no better feeling for a condo owner than that. Best, Lynne

Enjoy the white sugar sand beach a few steps from your condo. Visit the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, the Boardwalk, and the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier only six minutes away by car. Discover the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin Air Force Base less than 9 miles away. Or explore downtown Fort Walton Beach and the Indian Temple Mound Museum built by the Pensacola Culture circa 850 CE.

Enjoy seafood? Try one of the dozens of great restaurants serving fresh-caught, local fish, crabs, and other shellfish right down the street or in nearby Destin. Click on our Hospitality Tab to see some of our recommendations.

Looking for trees, small parks and places to relax in addition to the beach? Try one of several local parks: "Liza Jackson Park" - across the Narrows and just West of downtown FWB, or "Fort Walton Beach Landing" (Brooks Street), or "Marler Park on Choctawhatchee Bay" (just 6 minutes from the condo), or Clement Taylor Park on the east side of the Destin Bridge. Many of these parks are shaded by live oaks and pines. Plus, there are picnic pavilions and places for the kids to romp and play.
