Description

#603: Top floor with Amazing Views

Come and Relax at 603 Summerlin on the beautiful white beaches directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy the perfect sunsets and watch the boats and dolphins from your large balcony.

The Summerlin is an intimate, quiet, and beautifully-appointed, 30-unit condominium that has been voted most attractive building on Okaloosa Island. The Summerlin is situated on 200 feet of snow-white beach in the middle of Okaloosa Island (Fort Walton Beach), a narrow barrier island that affords both Gulf and intercoastal waterway views.

This beautifully decorated, two-bedroom, two-bath unit sleeps six.The master bedroom has a king size bed with private bathroom. The sliding doors take you directly to the balcony. The extra large balcony overlooks the sugar-white sand and shimmering emerald and turquoise waters of the Gulf. The master bedroom has a HD/LG TV mounted on the wall.

The guest bedroom has twin bed and queen bed with a Smart TV.

The fully equipped kitchen has upgraded appliances with granite counter tops.The large utilityroom has full size washer and dryer.

The dining area has table and 4 chairs and 2 bar stools.

The newly decorated living room has a sofa bed couch and 3 new swivel chairs.

Walk out livingroom to the large balcony with a high table and 4 captains chairs, and also 2 outdoor chairs with an additional small table to get a great view of the dolphins.

This condominium has great 'curb appeal' with lush tropical landscaping.

Heated pool is beachside with restrooms

FREE BEACH SERVICE IS PROVIDED WHICH INCLUDES 2 CHAIRS AND AN UMBRELLA.

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).

It was great!    Jan 01, 2024

Best place we ever stayed and we’ve been coming here for 15 + years. The furniture is new and very comfortable. We couldn’t find the mailbox key and that was fixed within an hour. We are looking forward to coming back next year.

Wonderful place to stay    Oct 14, 2023

review star

My wife and I stayed in this unit the last 2 weeks of Oct. The condo had all the kitchen items we needed, the appliances worked great. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. The bathrooms are nice, one has a modern walk-in shower. The living room has a large screen tv with all the apps you need. The Gardeners make renting so easy and uncomplicated. We like staying in Summerlin because it is well maintained, parking is very close to the building, and because of Summerlin's modest size, there is more room on the beach. You don't sit elbow-to-elbow with others. We highly recommend Summerlin #603.

We have visited Summerlin many times over the years. If you enjoy a quiet location and ocean views, Summerlin 603 will not disappoint. Condo is beautifully furnished and comfortable.

Lovely Condo - Highly Recommend!    Jun 11, 2023

review star

Drew's condo was perfect for our family of 4 (mom, dad, two 17 years old twins). The view from the balcony, living area and primary bedroom is breathtaking. Very clean, lots of counter space in kitchen, nice size pantry, and the kitchen has just about any utensil/cooking/baking item one needs. It has salt & pepper and tupperware - guests just need to bring cooking oil, foil/saran wrap, coffee & filters/ k cups, and laundry detergent. One skim board, two extra beach chairs (in addition to the umbrella and 2 chairs from the beach service), 2 Boogie boards (good for smaller kids) and a pair of binoculars are also available to guests! Drew patiently answered ALL the questions I had before and during our stay, so helpful! You can see the Wednesday night fireworks set off on the pier from the balcony! Beach in front of Summerlin is much less crowded then the beach in front of buildings closer to the pier, which we liked. 5 minute drive to publix grocery store, about 15 minutes to Harbor Village in Destin. We had the best time in Drew's condo and did not want to leave! Thank you Drew!

Our second time renting from Drew and Chris. The condo was beautiful and had everything we could want. And the views cannot be beat. We look forward to coming back. We left future visitors a puzzle to enjoy if the weather fails to cooperate like it did for us a few days.

Perfection    Jan 01, 2023

This is our second year staying for 2 months in this unit, absolutely perfection. The unit has all the kitchen things you need and the balcony view from the master bdrm and living room is beautiful. Many happy hours on the balcony watching the dolphins, reading or just enjoying our view. Drew is so accommodating and always there if you have any questions. Thank you, Drew & Chris, for renting to us. Hopefully we'll be able to come back.

Great condo!    Jun 25, 2022

review star

This is a great condo and actually our second year in a row booking this unit! Exactly as pictured with nice updates. We had a few things we were looking for prior to booking: balcony facing the ocean, master with ocean front views, limited carpet, and washer/dryer in unit. This property ticked all the boxes and then some. The beach service was amazing and the condo had a few extra beach chairs to use which was nice. Fort Walton Beach is much more our speech with more room on the beach and less crowds compared to Destin.

The perfect condo!    Apr 30, 2022

review star

Look no further, you found the perfect condo. It is beautifully decorated, super clean, has every single thing you could possibly need for the perfect beach vacation from a crockpot to beach towels. This is a smaller complex so no waiting for an elevator plus parking is super close to the elevator entrance. It has a large balcony for those rainy days when you want to read a book and relax. We loved this unit and the owners were amazing, don’t hesitate to book this, but leave a week for me next year lol! You will absolutely love this place!!

This was the perfect condo!! Perfect place to stay to enjoy beautiful beach views, pleasant evenings on the deck and a restful time. Gardners were very responsive to every question and great to rent from. Would definitely stay there again. The Summerlin is a smaller complex that is very clean and not as crowded as the bigger areas. Beach service was definite plus!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at this condo. The condo was very clean and had every amenity needed for a wonderful stay. The views were fantastic from the master bedroom and living room. If you want a relaxing place to stay this is the condo for you. The beach service was a surprise bonus for no additional cost. We will definitely return. The Gardners were very attentive and respond within minutes of emails or texts. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Rarely does one enter a vacation rental and the home is exactly as the advertised pictures. This condo is EXACTLY as stated. This home is equipped with every imaginable amenity. I loved every minute of my two week stay here on Okaloosa Island. The view from the sixth floor condo was beautiful. Morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the ocean then a glass of wine to end the day on the balcony was a dream come true. I highly recommend this condo. The owners responded within minutes of every email and text and were very accommodating throughout our stay.
