Wonderful vacation! Great place to stay, relaxing and so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation! Kevin was wonderful and made booking our stay very easy. The condo is even nicer than what you see in the photos. I was worried we would feel cramped with a family of six, but we weren't at all. There is plenty of storage under the bunk beds and the closet in the bedroom is huge so I was able to tuck everything away. Everything was very clean and the kitchen had everything I needed to make our meals. The kids loved the bunk beds and our teen enjoyed the pull out sofa. The balcony off the pool was an extra surprise, it was so relaxing to sit and watch the kids enjoying the pool. The pool was wonderful; most times we were the only ones utilizing it. The beach is literally steps from the condo, the beach was not too crowded and the condo allows for easy access and beautiful views from the front balcony. The water was crystal clear and we found some of the most beautiful shells and three sand dollars (the most we’ve ever found). It was so nice to be able to bring our dog with us, boarding him last year was a nightmare! The kids loved having him there and it was nice to bring him on walks every morning and evening. There is a walkway to the street that has a really nice sidewalk. There are lots of people riding bikes, walking and running. There is a public grocery store a couple of minutes away, a tom thumb right down the street and Fudpuckers was literally one block away. The only downside to the trip was that we had to leave. We absolutely had one of the most enjoyable trips ever!

We loved this location; on the quiet side of the island and literally 2 minutes to walk to the beach! Good size for the 2 of us. Needs to update the coffeemaker, toaster, cutting board and get a can opener that actually works. Alarm clock in bedroom is shot, too. Good shower and condo was very clean when we arrived. You can walk up and down Santa Rosa Blvd for exercise. Tom Thumb store a few blocks away and a Publix just over the bridge. Destin is a 15 minute drive. There is a brand new mini golf/ice cream shop toward 98.

Imagine my surprise when I arrived only to find a three story condo between me and the beach. I should have read ALL of the reviews. I don't go to the beach that often. It's been six years. I was so excited about this trip. My main goal was to rent a condo ON THE BEACH. So buyer beware. The advertisement that is written for this condo is deceiving. You will notice in the pictures that the curtains are drawn when the photos are taken. That's so you don't see the huge three story condo blocking your views of the Beach/Ocean/Gulf. It's not fifty steps to the beach, it's over 200. You will also notice that the reviews don't mention "cleanliness". That's because it's dirty. I don't know why people wouldn't mention this in their reviews (?) I gave the owner a heads up and sent him pictures per his request. I then proceeded to clean the condo myself. I was charged a cleaning fee...weird uh? The owner explained that traffic and time restraints seem to be the problem with the cleaning crew. No excuse. There isn't any buffer zone between floors. If there are children above you, you're going to hear them. Our neighbor's twin girls rose at 7:00 am every morning and so did we, unfortunately. This island is loaded with concrete hi-rises. We had a lot of laughs and made the best of this vacation. The advertisement also mentioned a secluded beach....not quite sure why they would say that. Every morning rental chairs and umbrellas load the beach front, so get there early and be prepared to be surrounded. My family and I feel scammed from the creative writing of this rental. So before you spend, read between the lines and read all of the reviews.

Owner's Response: This condo states CLEARLY that it is" Beach View" - Which means you can see the beach from the condo. Beach Front would describe what these folks apparently wanted. July is the busiest month of the year and looking at my calendar not one day was vacant this July and things can get a little tight when your cleaning company has 5 condos to clean between 10 am and 4 pm the same day. The dirty listed items refers to dust on a mirror that was not wiped off and is more the type cleaning thats done in the off season. The cleaning she paid for was new sheets and comforter and towels that I just bought that very month myself and for a clean kitchen and floors and general items- I did however offer immediately upon hearing of the renters issues to have my cleaning lady to stop by and take care of any and all issues and she refused twice - what else can I do but try to make things good. The gentleman that owns the unit above me takes good care of his condo as well and would have been happy to ask them to reduce the noise of kids feet hitting the floor had I known anything about it at all . But I can not fix what I am unaware of. The beach is on the end of a dead end road and the Military owns an 18 mile long stretch of beach just a few hundred feet past my condo hence the secluded beach - There are no condos homes or any traffic and yet it may be used by the public and that is also explained in the write up on said condo. The curtains are partially drawn to cut down on the sun from washing out the pictures inside with too much light - It frankly never crossed my mind to think along the lines of another building showing up. However I must say I do take pictures that best represent the available views . if Beachfront is what you seek then you need to read my very accurate description yourself as my opening line states 'BEACH VIEW CONDO". As for reviews they speak for themselves and since a recent remodel of the condo have all been top notch . Some folks just are not going to be happy regardless of your attempt to see they have a safe ,clean, secure place to stay .

Keep looking, this property was an overall disappointment for us. Needs to be updated with newer furnishings and kitchen hardware.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children enjoyed our vacation at Sunset Cottages. Condo was as described and pictured, easy access to the beach, enjoyed the condo complex pool location, with outside bathrooms and the shower to remove the beach sand. The rear condo deck made watching our 13 yr old grandson easy while he was in the pool. The front deck had two comfortable chairs to set and drink morning coffee and view the amazing Emerald Gulf. The beach and water were beautiful!! HUGE closet in bedroom, all the right small kitchen appliances and tools to prepare meals. The Harbor Dock Restaurant in Destin was delicious for dinner as usual. We enjoyed the Ft. Walton Beach "Billy Bones" week-end celebration and parade. I would suggest discarding or replacing the small glass table on the rear deck due to poor condition and adding an inside security lock chain at the front door. Our 2 1/2 year old grandson attempted (never succeeded) to open the door on several occasions. Just concerned grandparents. Thanks for another great summer vacation on Okaloosa Island!

From the Owner

This part of the Island is secluded and yet is still near the main Hwy 98 . The beaches here are not crowded as the Military owns 18 miles of beach just past the condo but it is public access with no homes,condos or other structures around. It makes it very nice to be close to town but on your own little stretch of beach.
