Beach Luxury: pool; cruise; discounts; safety

Luxury on the beach with pool, free private yacht cruise with dolphin watches, all household supplies included. Weekly rent discount for active/retired military, law enforcement, firefighting, government, corporate, teaching, legal, nursing, and union guests who book at least 7 nights or more (see details at the end of this description).

You’ve looked at many properties, dreaming of & planning for your beach vacation to the emerald green waters & white sugar sands of Florida’s Gulf Coast. After a while they all seem to blend together and you wonder if you’ll ever find the *perfect* spot for your family or group.

What sets this beautiful corner unit condo apart from all of the rest?

First, this freshly-decorated condo is new to the rental market. It’s updated annually: pride of ownership is evident in the finishes, furnishings and extras you’ll find when you arrive. 

The Blue Dolphin is an exclusive, small density BEACHFRONT building with only 10 units. 

•          Covered parking (one car per unit; more by arrangement)
•          Shaded waterfront deck
•          Private swimming pool 
•          Private beach access 
•          Free beach service (Mar - Oct)
•          Free beach coolers

Because our building is so small, our private beach is never crowded, and there are no elevator waits -- you’ll have lots of room to relax & enjoy your time with your toes in the natural white sand.

As a service for our guests, your stay includes a free reservation for two beach lounges and one umbrella set up each day on the beach just for you.  If you should happen to need more than 2 chairs just let the beach attendant know and he'll provide those extra chairs for your group at a low additional cost. (If you would to set up your own additional seating, the unit has four free, high-quality, lightweight folding beach chairs and shelters for your use.)
The condo itself is spacious and laid out with an open living area, dining area and kitchen surrounded by windows on two sides with incredible beach and Gulf views. Each of the two bedrooms features a custom king-sized bed with luxury linens. A single bunk in the hallway provides a fun sleeping spot (with its own TV) for a child to have his/her own “space”. There are two full ensuite bathrooms (one with a tub/shower combination and one with a dual-head shower).

Free high-speed Cox Panorama 1GB WIFi, unlimited digital cable TV with sports channels, and unlimited nationwide telephone service, four HD Smart TVs (living areas and each bedroom) are all provided.

Directly accessible from the living area is the veranda style balcony overlooking the pool, beach and Gulf. Imagine yourself relaxing on the balcony and enjoying the view, the sound of the waves and watching for the playful dolphins swimming by most mornings and afternoons.

Your stay will include special luxury amenities (*some apply to bookings of at least 7 nights): 

•          *A complimentary, completely free, 4-hour cruise and dolphin adventure on the Gulf of Mexico or Santa Rosa Sound on a private 50-foot sportfishing yacht (weather  conditions permitting, April 1 to October 1 and subject to social distancing requirements established by state/county). Cruise will include snacks and beverages. This free cruise is available for bookings of at least 7 nights or more. (In the event that the yacht cruise is unavailable for any reason during a stay, we will provide all members of the party with a free dolphin eco-tour or sunset cruise on board the Southern Star from Destin Harbor: ) 
•          Major discounts for boat/jet ski rentals, charter fishing, and select Destin/Fort Walton Beach restaurants (details of which will be provided to confirmed guests)
•          Six high-quality Penn saltwater fishing rods, spinning reels, and tackle to use during your stay.  

If you are one who must have their daily Starbucks “fix” the only Starbucks on the Island is just 500 feet away at the Marriott Courtyard Bistro --  which serves breakfast, dinner, and evening drinks.  Within 1000 feet, Stewby's Fish Shanty and Store offers fresh local seafood.

If you are looking for a beautiful accommodation in a small, exclusive building that offers more than the run-of-the mill condo at the beach, look no further! This is the one for you!

NOTE: During Spring Break & Summer (see rates below for specific dates) we have a 7 night minimum requirement, arriving on Saturday and departing on Saturday. If you create a booking during these dates that does not arrive and depart on a Saturday we will be forced to cancel the booking. Thanks for your cooperation.

Book Blue Dolphin!    Jul 26, 2020

review star

This was our first time staying in the Fort Walton area, and this visit may have changed that for the future! The condo is super cute; comfortable bedding; and a perfect balcony view. The PRIVATE beach is so, so nice! Plenty of restaurants nearby! And the owner, Mike, is so accommodating. Definitely will try to stay here again.

This unit has two king size beds, both have there on bath as well! Smart TV's and internet as well. Will be back again for sure!
