Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Condo was almost entirely remodeled and updated. We kept the best of the previous beach décor and updated with granite, new furniture, paint and upscale lighting. We just replaced the microwave, washer/dryer, and master bedroom TV with new models. Our building exterior was completely refurbished in 2017 and is like new in appearance.

Come enjoy this wonderful two-bed/two-bath condominium located on Okaloosa Island in Ft. Walton Beach Florida. You will feel like you are in your own beach cottage in this colorful first floor condominium. No stairs or elevators to worry with and the beach literally at your back-door. This condominium is spacious and well-appointed.

The wonderful gulf views can be enjoyed from the kitchen, dining, living, master bedroom and patio. The patio is accessible from the living room or master bedroom and has privacy as pedestrian traffic does not walk directly behind condominium. Emerald Towers West is a small quaint gulf front complex featuring a heated pool with sunning area, and a barbeque area. The low density of units in this building ensures ample beach space for all guests. If you desire a large complex with hundreds of people competing for pool and beach space, this is not for you.

Do not be fooled by this first floor location. The unit and building are actually elevated one level off the beach to provide a great view without stairs or elevators.

The fenced pool and barbecue area are opposite side from the beach for greater privacy. No 'gawkers' as you enjoy your privacy.

For those who have supported us through the years, we look forward to your return this year as well.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! It is bigger than it looks in the pictures and super clean. The first floor location makes unloading a breeze, yet it's elevated enough that the view from the patio is still excellent. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!

Wonderful condo, perfect location, easy access!

  • 5 of 5

When searching for a rental for our fall break stay, we researched many areas in and surrounding destin to find the best location for our family (3 kids, two adults) to stay. We lucked out in finding Emerald Towers West located on Okaloosa island on a beautiful stretch of beach. Once we searched the building, we came across this condo that had the 2 bedrooms we needed and first floor access. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were to enjoy a STUNNING view every day from our condo, and literally only had to walk around he building to be on the sand. Avoiding stairs and the elevator, not to mention the crossing of roads or walking far, was priceless with 3 kiddos. I could easily go back up to the condo mid day to grab our lunch and bring it back to the beach for the kids to eat. When the baby napped, I could sit on the deck and easily see my husband and other kids still playing right over the small dune area. When walking along the beach, it was clear this building was much nicer and well kept than most along the same stretch. We were so happy with the set up of bedrooms and bathrooms and the condo was clean and organized upon arrival. Mo could not have been more helpful during our decision and booking process, and even called to check in once we had arrived. If you are looking for a wonderful condo with a view and easy access along a gorgeous stretch of beach, this is your rental!!

Very Relexing

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was very nice and clean well maintained. The master bedroom is perfect size and I loved the walk in shower. The condo is 10 steps from your car which made unloading and reloading easy. It's close to stores and restaurants and most of all it's right on the beautiful beach. You can rent two chairs for $20 a day which is nice because they set up and take down. We also enjoyed the pool which has lots of lounge chairs. We loved that it had a family atmosphere and quite at night. We will be back to make tons more memories ❤️

Great location with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. Pictures does not do the inside of this condo justice! Everything you need for a great stay is right at your fingertips. No need to go out to eat every meal because the kitchen is fully equipped! The beach is only a few steps away and there is a ton of entertainment near by. We loved our stay and plan on returning!! The owners are also great at communicating and made the whole process a breeze!! Thank you Mo and Beverly!

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Love this place!!! Before we even left we were recommending it to friends and family. Emerald Towers West is in the perfect location on the beach. Close to activities but tucked out of the way making for a more private feel. This unit is super clean with an amazing view and is stocked nicely with everything you need. It was comfortable and felt like a home. Definitely a place to come back to.

Love this Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was not only an excellent vacation rental, it felt like our home away from home. Located right on the beach, the beautiful emerald waters greeted us daily with waves lapping against the beach with absolutely gorgeous ocean colors that glistened in the warmth of the sun against the sandy white beaches of Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach. Dolphins swam to greet us as we walked along the beach in our "back yard". We could sit with chair and umbrella and never get tired of the images in the water from beautiful waves, to glassy seas and the sugary sand which was sculpted in different landscapes almost daily at the will of the ocean's activity; not failing to mention the beautiful sunrises and sunsets which draw you out to the outdoors to observe and photograph daily. Coming from a rural area, we thought that staying in a condo on a Florida beach would seem a bit intrusive by the surrounding rentals, but were pleasantly surprised to have the experience of feeling like we were staying in a beach house with our very own private shoreline. The Emerald Towers building is smaller than most we had seen on the island and the permanent residents as well as other condo renters were extremely friendly and helpful while still respecting our privacy. The owners of this condo surpassed all of our expectations from the time we first booked this place until the day we left. If we had any questions or needed anything they were quick to get back to us with a response. Mo and Beverley were very kind and checked frequently to make sure that we were comfortable and made suggestions for places to visit and popular places to eat out. This condo was very well equipped and we didn't want for anything other than beach towels and our personal items. The bedrooms were larger than we had imagined an warmly decorated with sliding door access from the living room as well as the Master bedroom. The pool area was quiet and away from the beach, and just the right size for a quick dip in the mornings. We look forward to coming back many times in the years to come and hope that this condo will be available when we do as we do not feel like we could be as happy anywhere else. At the time of this entry we are already making our plans to return. Thank you owners of 1006 at the ETW.
