Description from owner

Welcome to “Beachy Keen”, our beachfront vacation rental condo on Okaloosa Island, FL with a direct Gulf view!

The whole interior of this condo has been freshly painted with bright, beach-y colors…from the moment you walk in the door you will know that your vacation has begun!

If this condo is not available for your dates contact us regarding our "Beach Escape" condo located one floor below this one.

EXPERIENCED VACATION RENTAL OWNERS – WHY WE BOUGHT THIS CONDO

Beachy Keen is our second vacation rental property. Our first is a condo located in the heart of Summit County, CO, which we bought because of its amazing view of Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile mountain range. We knew that the location and view were what guests would love & why they would want to return again in the future.

For the same reasons why we love our CO condo, we fell in love with this unit in Dune Pointe. To begin, at 1284 square feet it was the largest 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom condo we saw in our extensive property search. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax without feeling cramped or on top of each other.

Additionally, Dune Pointe is a low-density building, with only 20 units. This means that our guests will have plenty of room on the private beach since they will be sharing it with just 19 other units, unlike most other condo buildings that have many more units.

WHAT THIS CONDO HAS THAT MOST DO NOT: SPACIOUS BALCONY & MILLION $$ VIEW!

Just like our CO condo, the main reason why we bought our Dune Pointe unit was THE VIEW! We knew we could change almost everything inside the condo, but it was the view of the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico that sold us on the property. The large balcony has plenty of room to relax on lounge chairs and to also sit at the table and enjoy your morning coffee or meals “al fresco”. While relaxing on the balcony you can enjoy the sound of the waves’ constant dance towards the shore. (It didn’t hurt that during our property search the first time we viewed this unit we saw a pod of dolphins swimming and playing in the surf just off of the beach directly in front of the building!)

DIRECT BEACHFRONT LOCATION – NO ROADS TO CROSS

Because of this building’s location (directly on the beach) our guests have access to the beach just a short walk over the dunes using the private walkway. You will not have to pack up your car to drive to a public beach access, nor carry your equipment, coolers, etc. across a road to the beach. As a service for our guests, your stay at Beachy Keen includes a reservation for two beach chairs and one umbrella set up each day on the beach just for you (March 1 through October 31).

PERFECT FOR SMALL FAMILIES OR TWO COUPLES TRAVELING TOGETHER

Inside the condo you will find all of the comforts and conveniences necessary to make your stay at Beachy Keen feel like home!

The master bedroom features a comfortable king-sized bed. You will find a 32” flat screen TV & DVD player in the armoire in this room and an iron & ironing board in the closet. The en-suite bathroom has a jetted whirlpool tub for a relaxing soak after a long day in the sun! There is also a walk-in shower and a vanity with one sink in this bathroom.

The second bedroom also features a king-sized bed, making this condo perfect for couples traveling together. This bedroom also has a small TV & DVD player. Right next door you will find the second bathroom, which has a combination tub/shower and a vanity with one sink.

Quality linens, bedding and fluffy bath towels, hand towels and washcloths are provided for your use. (We do NOT provide beach towels, however. If you don’t want to pack your own you can buy inexpensive beach towels at one of the many beach stores in the area.) There is a hair dryer in each bathroom.

The spacious living area features extra-wide sliding doors that welcome the awesome Gulf view into the room. Here you will find a queen-sized sleeper sofa, as well as other comfortable seating. A large (50”) flat screen smart TV and BlueRay DVD player are available in the living area for your entertainment.

The dining table seats six, and there are two barstools at the kitchen counter.

The kitchen features beautiful granite counters, brand new stainless appliances and is stocked with dishes, glassware, flatware, pots & pans, coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven and dishwasher…. everything needed to please the chef in your family!

For your convenience there is a stackable washer/dryer in the utility closet. You will also find 2 Beach Chairs & a Boogie Board in this closet for your enjoyment during beach season.

DUNE POINTE BUILDING AMENITIES

The building has plenty of parking in front and also an elevator for the convenience of our guests. There is an area on the side of the building that has a charcoal barbecue grill that our guests can use when they wish to cook out. (Guests must provide their own charcoal for the grill.)

A beautiful, sparkling swimming pool is located in the back between the building and the beach. For those who don’t care to sit on the beach there are lounge chairs on the deck around the pool. Please play safely and supervise children at all times; there is not a lifeguard on duty at this pool.

There are restrooms available for our guests’ use in the pool area, which means you don’t have to go all of the way up to the condo to use the bathroom when enjoying the beach. When you are finally ready to go inside for the day you can rinse off all of the sand and salt water at the outdoor shower.

In the winter the swimming pool at Dune Pointe is heated to 80 degrees when the water temperature falls below that temperature EXCEPT when the air temperature falls below 45 degrees. The pool is not heated when the outside temperature is 45 degrees or colder.

The direct Gulf views and private beach access are the reasons why we know you will enjoy Beachy Keen as much as we do every time we visit!
