Description

The Harbeson House: Downtown Living in Ft. Walton Beach

Welcome to Harbeson

Harbeson is a fun little Downtown House just two blocks north of the Downtown Strip of Ft. Walton Beach. Harbeson is less than a mile from Okaloosa Island which is home to the finest beaches you will find in the continguous US. We are close to pretty much everything: dining, nightlife, concerts, parades, all the things you would expect from a downtown Florida beach town. One of my favorite venues each year is the Billy Bowlegs festival.   Renting Harbeson puts you at the Ft. Walton Beach public beaches. There are 7 of them, plus the beach at the pier.

The history here is rich. The house was built as a Habitat for Humanity house, I understand for a Veteran. (Ft. Walton is a military town all the way!) I was so proud to purchase this home directly from the original vet. I completely remodeled the house, gave it some character, and named each room. 
Harbeson is 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. 

The Resting Room
Sectional Sofa with recliners on each end. No sofa bed
Smart TV. No cable.
Office Desk with HDMI monitor so you can work remotely
USB Chargers in the end tables for a quick refuel

Fully stocked kitchen includes Instapot, crockpot, waffle maker, toaster, Kitchenaid, and any tool you may need

Homey Harbeson House    Jul 01, 2023

review star


We were just a little unsure of renting Harbeson as our experience at the condo was soooo wonderful and we were afraid it wouldn't measure up. But boy, were we wrong!! We loved everything about it!! So cozy and plenty of room for everyone. It was definitely a home away from home. We appreciate how clean and well equipped both properties are. Can't wait to visit again!!

We went through Danica one of the owners. She treated us like VIPs every step of the way and always checked up on us to see if we needed anything. If I stay again I will go through her she was amazing her hospitality was above and beyond!!!!! Will definitely plan another trip through her!!!!

review star


Loved this house ! We went for a weekend trip. Quiet neighborhood. The house was Very clean and modern. Nice backyard for evening sitting and relaxing with family. Beds were SUPER comfortable!!! It was Only One mile to a huge public beach. Walking distance to down town food and fun. It is Right by a Publix for groceries. Danica was always quick to respond and very helpful during our stay !! We already have our next trip booked with her. ☀️
