Okaloosa Island is located between the mainland of Ft. Walton Beach and Destin. The island is comprised mostly of condominium buildings, private homes and hotels, with a few retail shops, restaurants, bars and convenience stores thrown in. The island has some fun attractions also, such as the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone, the “Boardwalk” (where you will find several good restaurants & retail shops) and the Okaloosa Island Fishing pier.
Just to the east about 6 miles lies Destin, which offers many more options for dining, shopping and entertainment.
On Okaloosa Island in Ft. Walton Beach Dune Pointe is a small building with just 20 units. The building has an elevator and heated swimming pool as well as a private beach. Each condo has a large balcony that overlooks the pool, the beach and all have a gorgeous view of the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Our spacious 2 BR/2 BA beachfront condos can each sleep 4 adults & 2 kids or 1-2 adults & up to 4 kids.
EXPERIENCED VACATION RENTAL OWNERS – WHY WE BOUGHT THIS CONDO
We love the Dune Pointe Condominium building because at 1284 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).
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.
