Best Condo We've Stayed In Yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our 3 grown children and their significant others and our almost 2 year old granddaughter to the beach for the 4th of July! We had a wonderful time at Island Princess. There was plenty of room for all of us and it was just a wonderful week of getting to spend time with my family. The owner stayed in touch with us when we booked in February and answered all questions that we may have had. She is wonderful!!! Everything was clean when we arrived and we never once had any trouble with anything while we were there. I would recommend this unit to anyone with a large family. We were close to the Gulfarium, Floyd's Restaurant and within walking distance to some shops. For our grand baby's first ocean visit we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!! We didn't want to leave after our week was up!! Thank you so much for everything we loved your condo!!!

Awesome space for the price!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful vacation space. The decor was very tastefully done in a beach-nautical theme that was no overpowering or gaudy. We had a great stay with 5-7 of us most of the week and we had plenty of room. Great view of the ocean. We absolutely LOVED this condo and decided that we could actually live there year around. I have already checked to see if it is available for our fall break and unfortunately it's already booked. To those who are looking for a great open space, with tasteful decor, an AWESOME owner to rent from, then this condo is perfect for you. Angie was awesome!!! One of the kids with us left behind some clothes and after a quick phone call, Angie agreed to ship them back to us. She went above and beyond to make sure that everything was great with the condo as well as making sure we didn't have any problems while we were there. She is very easily reachable and answered any and all questions we had.

Thanks again Angie for a great experience. I will definitely be staying here again!!!

Nice place for larger group

  • 4 of 5

The unit was clean, well kept, and the 3/3 br/ba setup was good for our family. The balcony is a nice size with a view of the beach to the left and the Sound to the right, but construction on the hotel next door prevented us from enjoying it. The well stocked kitchen had the appliances, cookware, etc. that we wanted. Using a key code to access the unit was a nice feature. Communication with the owner was prompt and easy to understand.

From the unit, you're only a few steps to the elevator. From there, you walk about ~130 steps (keep in mind my legs are not very long as I'm only 5'5") to the central beach access. Maybe there is a faster way to go, but we were unable to find it. Still, this is not much of a walk at all for most people.

The beach in front of the unit is clean, but feels crowded directly in front of the hotel due to the line of chairs/umbrellas. However,facing the ocean, to the left is a less crowded area, with public beach access to the right.

We were fortunate to see two sea turtles during our stay right in front of the condo! I saw one under water as I was snorkeling, and another as I was walking the beach. Early morning hours are best for seeing sea turtles.

The unit comes with 2 chairs + 1 umbrella setup, which is a nice feature. However,be aware that, per beach chair staff, only owners can reserve chairs/umbrellas. Renters have to show up at 9 and take what is left. This may not be the case at other times of the year, but was the case during our stay. Note also that chairs are only available from 9-5, and if you leave your chair around 3:30 or so, even if you have your stuff in the chair, the staff can/will take up your chair and put your stuff to the side. Hopefully you'll have a better experience with the chair/umbrella staff. They were rude to me and to my family. All other staff we encountered during our stay were courteous and helpful. The grounds, pool, and spa are also clean and well-kept.

The unit is located on Okaloosa Island, well away from the crowds of Destin. But it's only 10-15 minutes of driving if you would like to go to Destin for shopping, restaurants, etc. The Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier is a must-see stop and is less than 5 minutes drive from the unit. We even walked there once. For $2 you can walk out on the pier all day. We did this on 2 afternoons, both times near sunset. On both visits we saw dolphins and rays!

We enjoyed our visit to this condo. Thanks!

Owner's Response: The construction of the Marriott Fairfield Inn, which is two parcels over from the Island Princess, was totally completed well before September 1, 2014. Only last minute interior work was occurring in September and the furniture was moved in. My family happened to stay at my unit over the Labor Day holiday and were not bother by any noise. This hotel opened its doors around September 20, 2014. As far as the beach chairs are concerned, I will call our administrator and make our Island Princess board aware that once vacationers book their chairs that they are entitled to hold the set the entire day. This was a mistake made by the new beach service. Also, during the peak months, that is, Memorial Day through Labor Day the service is available from 9 AM - 6 PM. During the off-peak times, the service is shaved back to 9 AM - 5 PM. Glad that overall you had a great time and will return.

Great Vacation - Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our wonderful vacation at this condo, it was everything you described. We had 3 couples and everyone felt like they had their own space, with 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. We made use of the full kitchen and the grill. The view from the balcony was gorgeous; great pool; bubbling hot tub; steps to the beach with beach service. I also really appreciate your email to check on us on the day of arrival. We will definitely be back!!! If I could change one thing....it would only be being able to bring my fur babies but we left them in good hands....thanks again Angie, great place.......WONDERFUL VACATION SPOT!!

Couldnt Have Asked for Better!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week in this unit...it was amazing! My husband and I brought our 4 children, ages 4-10 and my mother. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms this unit offers was a blessing! We had a VERY comfortable stay and will definately be visiting again in the future! Ft. Walton is the perfect location; close to shopping, dining, clubs, water sports, boats...ANYTHING you could want to do, yet just far enough from all of the main attractions that you have peace and tranquility too. This has become a favorite spot of ours to vacaion over the last 10 years and the units at the Island Princess keep us coming back! The only 'cons' from our vacation, would be our own timing; we took this particular vacation in July, which is when most people want to be on vacation, however, I must say, I prefer the 'off' season a little more, only because I am not a fan of the crowded beachs, pools, reseraunts, etc.., and the fact that the area was experiencing a 'Red Tide' at the time and the water, which is usually crystal clear, was disturbingly dark and murky. Over all, we still enjoyed our stay and will most certainly be going back!
