Beach Escape

2 Queen beds, Beachfront, Million $$ Direct Gulf View, Free Beach Service!
Fort Walton Beach, FL, United States

Overview

Welcome to “Beach Escape”, our beachfront vacation rental condo on Okaloosa Island, FL with a direct Gulf view!

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, Beach Escape is our second condo in the Dune Pointe building on Okaloosa Island, FL. (Our first, “Beachy Keen” is  located in the same building but one floor above this one.) All of three condos have one thing in common: “Million $$ Views”!

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).

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.

If this condo is not available for your dates or if you need more room please check with us about the availability of our other condos in the same building: Beachy Keen and Beach Bliss.

    Gorgeous Condo
    Our family had a wonderful stay and the condo is perfect. Gorgeous view and everything is fully stocked for cooking. Beach was very nice and not crowded and parking is easy to come by. We will be back! Thanks again for the best trip to Ft. Walton!

    5 star Condo
    The condo had all accommodation you would ever need during your stay, from an adorable beach bag to a basket to put your sand filled shoes in when you come in from the beach. The furniture was adorable and made the condo inviting and made you want to just stay there and enjoy the view. The large balcony was where we ate breakfast every morning and were able to enjoy the view of the Dolphins for about a hour each morning. The balcony is also provided with a wicker love seat and chair with cushions that provided a very comfortable relaxation time at nights to sit and relax while listening and watching the ocean waves. The balcony is also a great place to come in and get out of the sun in the afternoons there is very little sun that comes onto the balcony. The pool was very quiet and pretty much to ourselves but was maintained daily and was very nice and clean. The beach chair service gentleman Travis was very friendly and took his job very serious. If a storm was coming he would be putting the umbrellas down to accommodate the weather. You knew promptly every morning at 8am the umbrellas and chairs would be up and ready for the day. The beach is not over crowded and we met a lot of really nice people during our visit. The condo is Very neat and clean, I would highly recommend this condo, I know that we will be returning for our future trips to the Destin area.

    Perfect Condo!
    This is exactly as pictured. Beautiful decor, super clean and an amazing view! I loved the size of this condo, it was never crowded and steps away from the beach. . Valarie thought of everything and spared no expense. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were clean and soft. We will definitely stay here again!

    Owners were easy to get ahold of and very friendly. Condo couldn’t be more beautiful and beach was so easily accessed.

    Definitely a Beach Escape!
    What a beautiful condo right on the beach! The unit itself is absolutely stunning. The kitchen was well stocked (bonus on the crock pot being there and we did not have to tote one there!). We enjoyed watching the dolphins right from the balcony every single morning. If you are used to staying in Destin and you are tired of fighting the crowds on the beach then this is definitely the place!! Valerie was very helpful during booking and checked to make sure when we arrived that everything was to our liking. Thank you for sharing your home with us for the week!

    Up-scale, clean, and beautifully furnished oceanfront condo
    As soon as you walk into Beach Escape, you are greeted by a well furnished, well supplied condo that looks and feels like a home rather than a rental property. Beach Escape is very clean and has all the amenities that one could desire, not to mention the beautiful, unobstructed views of the ocean! The furnishings are beach cottage and the floors are beautiful, while having no carpet to show wear and tear. The fully equipped kitchen caters well to the cook by having an assortment of high-end pots and pans and plenty of accessories. Both of the queen sized beds are pillow top and very comfortable. All appliances and washer and dryer work very well and quietly. We thoroughly enjoyed our two-week stay at Beach Escape and highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great place to stay while visiting the ocean.

    Beautiful inside and out
    Spent a week in this beautiful beach front condo. Very serene, relaxing week. Watched dolphins from the balcony. Just steps from pool and beach. Liked that it over looked pool area. Perfect floor for ocean view. Loved decor! Very clean and well maintained. Would stay here every time!!

    Fantastic Condo-Great Location!
    Spent a week in this great beach front condo. My wife could not get over the updated, attractive, and well-decorated condo. We watched dolphins from the balcony, every day. Smaller building, so not crowded like many of the other condos. Just a few quick steps from pool and beach. Perfect balcony for beach and ocean views. Very clean and well maintained. We will definitely stay here again.

    Best. Condo. Ever.
    We’ve stayed in hotels for vacations over the past twenty years, but have transitioned to vacation condos over the past few years since our son is an older teenager now. This condo was the BEST we’ve stayed in yet. Just like all the other reviewers, we thought the decor was beautiful – beachy chic!

    Here are just some of the highlights:
    -The most comfortable swivel recliners in the living room! I hate to admit this but I practically lived in one of them the whole week when we weren’t at the beach!
    -Fully-stocked kitchen with amazing pots and pans
    -Plenty of parking
    -Best beach area that never felt crowded, and the chairs and umbrella were perfect! -Awesome bathrooms with great shower pressure

    This was our first time in the Destin area, so we’ve never actually stayed in Destin since this condo is located in Okaloosa. It seemed like Okaloosa was much less crowded, much more laid back, and the beach seemed to have better waves and a more private feel. Destin and Fort Walton Beach are both super close, and we drove to both several times throughout the week for restaurants and shopping. We can’t recommend this condo enough. It was the biggest reason why we had one of our favorite spring break vacations ever!

    Good week despite the cold weather!
    My mother-in-law, my college-aged daughters, and myself enjoyed a week in this beautiful condo. In person it is just like the photos. We were disappointed in the weather the week we went in March (highs 55 degrees most days, when we were originally expecting mid 70’s!), but we made lemonade out of lemons and enjoyed ourselves anyway! We had a small issue with the sheets on the couch bed, but the owner very quickly remedied the situation. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we could need. Check in was so easy, bc all we had to do is enter the code they gave us before we left, and we were in. No keys to keep up with. Aside from the weather, we had a great week, and would return to this condo. The beach and water were absolutely gorgeous!

    Comfortable and appealing
    We had a very nice stay. The weather was miserable but we had a nice relaxing visit in the Ft. Walton and Destin area. The condo was very nice and very comfortable. We had a nice quiet New Years Eve.

    Beautiful condo, right on the beach
    Beautifully decorated condo with a soothing beach inspired decorating theme. Emailed instructions were detailed and accurate. Loved, loved, loved our stay here. Had one issue with there not being enough hot water for the jacuzzi tube in the Master bathroom. Valerie was quickly available by phone and the issue was taken care the following day. I was able to enjoy the tub for the rest of my visit. I did not find the instruction booklet until just prior to my departure because it is located on the decorative shelf which is partially behind a recliner. We spent most of our time on the beach which was the point of the trip. The beach is completely gorgeous, soft white sand and the water is so clear I was able to see my daughter’s legs when she was out standing in chest deep water. We visited in November when the weather was cool and the water was too cold for me, but my daughter body surfed almost continuously. I highly recommend this condo rental as a relaxing place to get away from it all and enjoy a beautiful beach vacation.

    Beach Lovers
    Absolutely one of our favorite condos that we have stayed in and we have stayed in many condos in Ft. Walton Beach. I love the décor and enjoyed just being there. It was immaculate, the cleanest condo that we have stayed in. We would definitely stay there again. The complex itself was the perfect size and we met 2 families from our home town which worked out great for the kids.

    Wonderful relaxing vacation !
    This condo is absolutely beautiful. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would ever need! The Decour is beautiful and very relaxing. Beds were so comfortable. The updates on this condo are impeccable ! This is the first time we have stayed and a smaller complex. But found it so refreshing and very low-key . We have been to Okaloosa Iskand many times over the past 10 years and this was by far one of the best places we have ever stayed !

    The condo was absolutely beautiful
    We had a wonderful time, loved the color and decor felt like you were actually at the beach. It had everything you would need and more… such a comfortable setting, felt right at home. Loved the balcony and the fabulous view and setting out side and watching the dolphins play in the ocean. One of the best condos I have stayed at will definitely choose this condo on my next visit to the Ft Walton area.

    Beautiful condo located steps from an amazing beach!
    Spent the week with my husband, son, and daughter-in-law. The decor and amenities in the condo were top-notch! We have vacationed along the Atlantic and Caribbean. This beach area and rental was one of the best we have experienced.
