Description of the Fort Walton Beach vacation condo rental
Because this unit has been gutted to the bare walls and totally remodeled, it won't be available for rentals until after the fourth of July 2016. Thus, we have no interior photos just yet of the updates. But because people are making rental plans right now, we are now taking bookings for what will soon be a beautiful new updated condo!
It's on the fourth floor of the beautiful Emerald Isle Club in a building overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The entire building underwent a near $5 million renovation in 2016. This spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit was totally remodeled this year, from floors to ceilings. Everything in it is new - appliances, beds, furnishings, linens, bath towels, dishes... Everything!
We have two balconies!
The master bedroom has its own private side balcony with views of both the Gulf out front to the right and the inter coastal waterway out back to the left. It has a new memory foam king size bed and private, luxurious attached bath and shower.
There is another king size bed in the guest bedroom, which also has a private side balcony with a wonderful view of the gulf. The guest bedroom has direct access to the second bathroom and shower.
The third bedroom also shares access to that second bath and shower and has a queen sized bed and twin over twin bunk beds. This is a great room for kids or extra guests.
There's a comfortable living room with a sectional sofa and chairs. There is also a separate family room with queen size sleeper sofa, love seat and chair that is great for family games, movies and relaxing.
Large flat screen high definition televisions (five of them) are in all the major rooms, The living room has a 55 inch Smart TV with DVD. All the TVs have cable. We have free internet wi-fi for your devices.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all new cooking utensils and appliances.
There are coin-operated washers and dryers in a separate laundry room down the outside hallway for your convenience.
Out front on the beach, you have daily beach service with two lounge chairs and an umbrella, set up for you each morning and included with your booking at no additional charge (service provided from March through Oct. 31).
Watch the porpoises as they play in the beautiful emerald-colored waters. Or the sea birds as they skitter up and down the surfline. Feel your tensions and stress slip away. Rental kayaks and beach toys are available right out front, too.
There is a large seasonally heated swimming pool for you, right in front, just off the beach. Outdoor grills and a brand new deck are great for beachside picnics.
You'll love morning coffee on the private balconies, listening to the waves, watching the stars come out at night. There are comfy chairs and tables on both balconies for lounging or outdoor dining.

More Information

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What's the beach like there?
A: Soft, white powdery sand. The softest you've ever sunk your toes in. Each night, it is raked and cleaned. And it goes forever. You can walk for miles. No building on Okaloosa Island is allowed to be more than seven stories high, so you don't get that concrete jungle feeling that characterizes many Florida beaches. There are shorebirds skittering in the sand. Porpoises cavort just off shore daily. You'll be there just a few minutes and understand why the beaches of the Emerald Coast are considered among the very best in the world. The powdered-sugar, brilliant white sand squeaks as one walks across it. The sand is actually made up of very fine pieces of highly-polished quartz. These eroded quartz particles originated in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, tumbling down mountain streams into the gulf. Since the ocean journey to the gulf was longer than to the Atlantic Coast, the sand is much finer than that found on the eastern seaboard. The long physical journey and the journey of time (about 350 million years) has broken down, bleached, and polished the bits of quartz one sees today.
Q: Why is it called the Emerald Coast?
A: The Emerald Coast is the unofficial name for the northwest coast of Florida from Panama City Beach on the east to Pensacola Beach on the west. It get's its name from the distinctive, emerald or greenish shades of the Gulf of Mexico caused by light reflecting off the micro-algae of the Gulf of Mexico that gives it a lovely green tint, similar to the colors of the Caribbean Sea far to the south. The water's clarity results from the fact that no large sediment-bearing rivers flow directly into the area's gulf waters. This is some of the cleanest, clearest salt water you will find anywhere.
Q: What's the atmosphere like there? We're seriously hoping to de-stress and mellow out and not worry about rowdy beachgoers.
A: You're thinking of Panama or Destin. Not on Okaloosa Island. None of the units are rented to people under 25. Okaloosa Island is known for its family friendly atmosphere and laid-back lifestyle. About the only noise you'll here are the birds and the waves.
Q: You said you have remodeled and updated the unit. Is it really new.?
A: Yup. We gutted it right down to the bare floors and ceiling and then installed new drywall, flooring, baths, cabinets, granite countertops. We installed brand new hot water heaters and air conditioning. All the furniture, appliances , linens, pots, pans, utensils and bath towels are new, too. This is a rental, but it is also our home. We use it for family vacations and spend as much time as we can there. We didn't skimp on anything.
Q: Is there a grill for barbequeing?
A: Yes. Out front by the pool.There's a new deck and grills for our guests. It's a great place for cookouts and picnics.The rules of the Emerald Isle Club prohibit grills on condo balconies.
Q: What can you tell us about the Emerald Isle Club complex itself?
A: The Emerald Isle Club has some 70 units. So it's not a mega development with lots of traffic and congestion. Beside the pool (seasonally heated) and deck, there are also well maintained tennis courts for guests to use. The complex itself underwent a major, near-$5 million renovation project in 2016, including new paint, new balcony/terrace floorings, new windows and doorwalls in each unit, elevator improvements and electrical and plumbing updates. It is one of the most sought after and well regarded condominium complexes on Okaloosa Island.
Q: Will I need a car? Is there parking?
A: Yes, pretty much. There is a small convenience store a quarter mile north on Santa Rosa Boulevard that is in walking distance but the closest restaurants, shopping, drug stores and supermarkets are about a mile or two away. Destin is a ten minute drive and has world-class dining and shopping.There is a marked parking spot for your vehicle (402) out front along the west side of the building. There are also open spots in the parking lot at the south end of the building.
Q: When is high season and low season?
A: We think EVERY season is awesome but along the Emerald Coast, "high" season is considered to be summer. Folks from the southern part of Florida and all along the southern states "escape" here to avoid the stifling heat and humidity of the region. On Okaloosa Island, there is always a gentle breeze that makes it much more comfortable in the summer than other places. Fall is spectacular. Winter can have quite cool nights but often surprisingly comfortable daytime temps. Spring starts in early March. One of the reasons Jennifer and I like it so much is because there are seasonal differences. There's no snow, of course, and we swear the sun shines down here more than anyplace we've been.
Q: How close is the unit to the beach?
A: Take the elevator or stairs from the fourth floor (both are a few steps from our door), turn left and walk past the pool directly unto the beach. It is right outside, right in front of our unit. There are no streets to cross, no hot parking lots to navigate. You can hear the waves from the balcony.
