Okaloosa Island is the Gulf-front beach community of Fort Walton Beach. Located between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. Come take a stroll on our beaches, play in the surf, fish from our pier, or stroll our boardwalk with nightly entertainment, restaurants, hotels, and shops.

Okaloosa Island is a three-mile strip of beach sandwiched between federally-protected land (beaches) that will never be developed. Okaloosa Island is only six miles from Destin, but without the crowds and traffic of Destin, largely due to its limited size and a height limitation (seven stories - no high rises here).

Wonderful place to stay    Mar 02, 2024

review star

We stayed here again the first 3 weeks of March of 2024. You can read my review just below. We loved it as much as we did the last time. Booking was easy, the Gardner brothers go out of their way to make it so. Everything works, the condo was impeccably clean, and the furnishings make for great comfort. Getting to the beach just entails going out the building and crossing the dune on a wooden walkway. For better or worse, Okaloosa Island, and Summerlin in particular, seem to have more the family vibe than the Destin beaches. Highly recommend 605.

Summerlin 605 , Have stayed there many times , Also stayed in 603 , These Units are the best we have found in Ft.Walton , Everything is always clean and very well decorated , With this Condo you get Beach Chairs and Umbrella from March till end of October Which is a plus ! Working with the Gardner Brothers has always been 1st Class , Never an issue . Recommend anyone coming to Ft. Walton check out 603 & 605 Summerlin

Great Condo    May 06, 2023

review star

Summerlin is one of the best rental places on Okaloosa Island and #605 has to be a best condo in Summerlin. It's kept up, well decorated, comfortable, has everything you need. And the price was great. A big plus is a walk-in shower in the master bath and a tub-shower in the smaller bath, in case your kids don't like a shower. I've never booked a rental as easily as I did this one. The owners were prompt in responding to questions and were very helpful in walking me through the rental process (it was so simple that I was a tad stumped at first,) I hope this is where we can stay when we return to Okaloosa Island.



Summerlin 605    Jan 01, 2023

Summerlin was booked “site unseen” and we have been coming back to 605 every year. We love being on the top floor and the end condo. It’s a lovely, well appointed, nicely decorated and very clean condo. The owners are simply wonderful people and will respond quickly, if the need arises. I can’t say enough positive things about the condo and the owners. We are here for two months and call this place our home in Florida. Simply stated, this condo is the best!

Summerlin 605 is one of the best condos on the beach! Owners are friendly and responsive. We have been coming to Ft. Walton Beach for many years and by far our favorite condo is Summerlin 605. The Condo is well appointed and always very clean. Thanks for another excellent week on the beach!

Summerlin is a great place to stay. This unit has everything you need and more! The owners are amazing to work with. Bring an extra umbrella bc you dont want to leave the beach until sunset!! Tip the beach service workers bc they take great care of you as well. Can’t wait to come back.

Best on the beach!    Jul 30, 2022

review star

We have stayed in 605 for several years and cannot say enough good things about the condo and amenities and also the owners. They are easy to reach, available to answer questions and you can just tell they take pride in their units. We love the gulf coast and as soon as we found The Summerlin and The Gardners we knew we didn’t need to look anywhere else! We have expanded this vacation to include both my family and my husbands family and we all just have the best time. It’s the perfect wrap up to the summer. I encourage and recommend everyone to check out this condo (or any others that are owned by the Gardners) because you will not be disappointed. They have thought of everything to make vacation a relaxing experience! We look forward to returning for years to come!



March Getaway    Mar 22, 2022

Our stay wasn’t long enough, but it was so nice to get away for three days to Summerlin 605. I only have good things to say about this condo! It is a quiet, clean, comfortable, homey condo, that the owners give extra attention to. They checked on us to be sure all our needs were taken care of and made sure we knew we could contact them if anything came up. I’ve stayed in numerous condos throughout the years, and this one had everything you could ask for, even including a higher quality toilet paper. I made the comment to my sister-in-law that everything in this condo “worked”. (Those of you that have stayed in condos where the ice maker or kitchen appliances don’t work know what I’m talking about.) Summerlin 605 is one of the nicest condos we’ve stayed in and hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to return.



AMAZING!!!!    May 29, 2021

What a great place! Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us. It was cute, clean and had everything we could possibly need. The view was beautiful. We woke up every morning to have coffee on the balcony and watch the dolphins and sting rays play! We were able to vacation with our entire family as we rented 605, 604 and 603. Thank you for letting us make wonderful memories together. We have already booked again for next year!

We travel to Okaloosa every Summer and this condo was one of the best. We were certainly faced with some obstacles in deciding if we should travel during this time. Dale answered every question we had and put our minds at ease. The condo was very clean and well decorated. We did not go out much while there but we had everything we needed. Thank you Bobby and Dale for sharing your home with us.

We had a wonderful time staying at Summerlin #605. Very comfortable, well kept and clean. Beautiful view of the gulf and nice to have available beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, toys, floating items. Would highly recommend this property. Owners and the management were very helpful and attentive.

Best place on Okalossa Island    Dec 14, 2019

Thank you so much Bobby and Dale. We have stayed at many places on Okaloosa Island, but we will continue to keep coming back to this unit. Dale was so helpful through the entire process and helping us with everything. The unit was extremely clean and you just can't beat the view from the balcony. They have everything that you will ever need. Can't wait to go back again.
