“Beach Escape”: Beachfront, Million $$ View, Free Beach Service, 1 King, 1 Queen
Welcome to “Beach Escape”, our beachfront vacation rental condo on Okaloosa Island, FL with a direct Gulf view!
NOTE: During Spring Break (3/2/19 – 4/12/19) and Summer (5/18/19 – 8/16/19) we have a 7 night minimum requirement, arriving on Saturday and departing on Saturday. If you create a booking during these dates that does not arrive and depart on a Saturday we will be not be able to accept the booking. Thanks for your cooperation.
You’ll understand why we call this our “Escape” when you see the photos of this unit. The atmosphere of serenity and the quintessential beach cottage charm envelope you as soon as you enter the front door.
EXPERIENCED VACATION RENTAL OWNERS – WHY WE BOUGHT THIS CONDO
Besides our first vacation rental condo located in Summit County, CO (VRBO 382) Beach Escape is our second condo in the Dune Pointe building on Okaloosa Island, FL. (Our first, “Beachy Keen” is advertised on VRBO 2462 and is located one floor above this one and our third “Beach Bliss” is advertised on VRBO 1231801 and is located two floors above this one.) All of these condos have one thing in common: “Million $$ Views”!
We love the Dune Pointe Condominium building because at 1285 square feet the units are some of the most spacious that we found during our property search. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax without feeling cramped or on top of each other.
Additionally, Dune Pointe is a low-density building, with only 20 units. This means that our guests will have plenty of room on the private beach since they will be sharing it with just 19 other units, unlike most other condo buildings that have many more units.
DIRECT BEACHFRONT LOCATION – NO ROADS TO CROSS
Because of this building’s location (directly on the beach) our guests have access to the beach just a short walk over the dunes using the private walkway. You will not have to pack up your car to drive to a public beach access, nor carry your equipment, coolers, etc. across a road to the beach. As a service for our guests, your stay at Beach Escape includes a reservation for two beach chairs and one umbrella set up each day on the beach just for you (March 1 through October 31).
Condo 1285 sq. ft.2 Bedroom 2 Bath Sleeps 6 Min Stay: 1 – 7 nights
PERFECT FOR SMALL FAMILIES OR TWO COUPLES TRAVELING TOGETHER
Each spacious bedroom has plenty of room to unpack and settle in.
The master bedroom has a new king bed, a 39″ flat screen TV & DVD player, roomy walk-in closet, and an en-suite bathroom with a jetted whirlpool tub for a relaxing soak after a long day in the sun! There is also a walk-in shower and a vanity with one sink in this bathroom.
The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, a 32″ flat screen TV & DVD player. The hall bathroom is located next to the 2nd bedroom and has a combination tub/shower and a vanity with one sink.
Quality linens, bedding and fluffy bath towels, hand towels and washcloths are provided for your use. (We do NOT provide beach towels, however. If you don’t want to pack your own you can buy inexpensive beach towels at one of the many beach stores in the area.) There is a hair dryer in each bathroom.
The spacious living area features extra-wide sliding doors that welcome the awesome Gulf view into the room. You will find comfortable seating in the living room, along with a 55″ flat screen TV & DVD player. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, suitable for 2 small children or one larger child/teen or adult.
The dining room table seats six people.
The kitchen features white quartz counters, stainless appliances and is stocked with dishes, glassware, flatware, pots & pans, coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven and dishwasher…. everything needed to please the chef in your family!
For your convenience there is a stackable washer/dryer in the utility closet. You will also find 2 Beach Chairs & a Boogie Board in this closet for your enjoyment during beach season.
DUNE POINTE BUILDING AMENITIES
The building has plenty of parking in front and also an elevator for the convenience of our guests. There is an area on the side of the building that has a charcoal barbecue grill that our guests can use when they wish to cook out. (Guests must provide their own charcoal for the grill.)
A beautiful, sparkling swimming pool is located in the back between the building and the beach. For those who don’t care to sit on the beach there are lounge chairs on the deck around the pool. Please play safely and supervise children at all times; there is not a lifeguard on duty at this pool.
There are restrooms available for our guests’ use in the pool area, which means you don’t have to go all of the way up to the condo to use the bathroom when enjoying the beach. When you are finally ready to go inside for the day you can rinse off all of the sand and salt water at the outdoor shower.
In the winter the swimming pool at Dune Pointe is heated to 80 degrees when the water temperature falls below that temperature EXCEPT when the air temperature falls below 45 degrees. The pool is not heated when the outside temperature is 45 degrees or colder.

Beautiful Condo, Great Location

Our party of 5 had a wonderful time at Dune 301. It is a lovely condo with every amenity; exactly as advertised. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, dishes, and utensils. The linens were top quality with extra pillows and blankets. Beds were comfortable. The beach service is a great plus. We saw dolphins almost every day. We hope we can visit again next year.

We had an amazing stay in Fort Walton Beach. Beach Escape is exactly as represented in photos. Beautiful and well equipped and right on the beach!
We had one minor issue getting the code to work and Valerie was immediately responsive and helpful. Fabulous owner to rent from and we would totally stay there again. Highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and did not want to leave. The condo is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and had everything we needed to feel at home for the week. We loved the view from our balcony where we could watch the dolphins each morning. We loved the jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. And the bed was so so comfortable. I have visited many beaches in Florida, including Pensacola, Daytona, St. Pete, Panama City, Jacksonville, Vero and Ft. Lauderdale. This beach in Fort Walton is by far my favorite. The ocean is absolutely gorgeous and the white sandy beaches are clean and cool on your feet. We got in the ocean and waded out quite a way and it was as clear as pool water. Destin is just down the road a few miles with tons of great places to eat and shop. We will definitely come back and stay here again!
