This totally remodeled three bedroom, two bath condo is perfect for family vacations.

The turquoise waters of the Gulf are just a few steps out front.

Okaloosa is a stunningly beautiful barrier island between Ft. Walton Beach and Destin that is famous for its laid-back atmosphere, pristine beaches, water sports and awesome family attractions.

The Emerald Isle Club underwent a near $5 million renovation in 2016. And our unit #402 is a spacious 1700-square foot unit that was totally remodeled and updated in 2016, from floors to ceilings. Everything in it is new - appliances, beds, furnishings, linens, bath towels, dishes... everything!

We have two balconies!

The main 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 second master 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 three beds - a twin and a twin over a double bunk bed. This is a great room for kids or extra guests, the the top bunk is for kids under 100 pounds

There's a comfortable living room with sofas 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. It can be closed off as a fourth bedroom for sleeping privacy if desired.

Large and brand new 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 brand 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, our guests will 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 dolphins 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 beautiful seasonally heated swimming pool for you and your guests, right in front, just off the beach. Outdoor grills, picnic tables and a spacious deck are great for beachside picnics and socializing.

Inside #402, you’ll love morning coffee on either one of your own 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.

There are so many things to do here and in the immediate surrounding area of the Emerald Coast! Our beaches are considered to be among the very best in the world.

Play beach volleyball on sand so clean it squeaks underfoot. Laugh with the sea lions at the world's oldest, continuously operating live marine show. Land a big one from the 1,261-foot-long fishing pier five minutes away.

If you want to explore, the area abounds in fun things to do and experience. Destin, with world class shopping and dining, is a 10 minute drive away. There are marinas and attractions right nearby, like the Gulfarium Marine Adventure park just a mile down the beach and Destin's Harborwalk Village, where restaurants, activities and entertainment abound. 

The spectacular Gulf Islands National Seashore is a short drive to the west.

Find out for yourself why families return here year after year, generation after generation, to build memories in the sand.

Please note: We do NOT charge you a security deposit. Many other condos do, charging renters an up front fee of $250, $300, even as much as $500. Yes, you usually get those deposits returned but it ties up your money. Instead, when you rent with us, you get security/damage insurance coverage for up to $3,000 in damages. The Accidental Rental Damage Insurance is included in every reservation for a flat fee of $49.

Fantastic    Sep 02, 2016

Perfect for families and kids! We had two families stay (a family of 4 and family of 3- kids ages 6, 6, and 3). Room with bunks was SO PERFECT for kids! TWO living rooms so we made a toy/movie room for the kids (across from bunk room). TWO KING BEDS AND BALCONIES!! We made so much yummy food in the lovely kitchen while kids sat at the bar and had dinner/snacks! Pool was perfect! Grilled out two nights while kids swam! I could go on and on! Owners are wonderful people and very proud of their place and they should be! There is coin laundry down the outdoor hall way but we just brought enough towels and stuff to get through the week just fine. As of 9/10/16 there is still a lot of construction going on at the condominium so if you are going to be annoyed, inconvenienced or complain about painting and things being messy and "not completely done", then don't stay but if you can look past all the work that's being done to make this entire place even more wonderful, this is such a great and perfect place to stay! It has EVERYTHING you need AND MORE! We were right at home while we were away from home and had no worries!

Beautiful !!    Jul 08, 2016

Thank you for a wonderful week. We appreciated all the "beachy' details of the condo. We felt very at home. Our favorite memory of the trip was body surfing in the beautiful emerald green water of the Gulf. After being at the beach all morning, we swam in the refreshing pool. At night we enjoyed crab hunting at the beach and cooking dinner in the condo. You had everything we needed in the kitchen and some realy nice high end appliances. We enjoyed the local seafood, especially the red royal shrimp. We had a fun and refreshing stay and cant wait to come back again. Oh yeah... the beds were super comfy!!!

So Fun To Watch    Jun 03, 2016

Thanks for giving us an in-person view of your remodeling during our recent visit when we met you and Jennifer down there. We are so excited to see your Emerald Isle Dreams unit taking shape and we'll be staying there in the fall (our favorite time of the year!). We love the furnishings you've picked out and can't wait to relax on those great balconies. Thanks for making everything new and high end!
