Want to truly get away from it all? The Hermitage By The Bay is the place for you!
This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo has a drop-dead gorgeous view of the pristine Choctawhatchee bay, complete with nesting herons and a quiet fishing pier. Yet the Gulf of Mexico, and those white sandy beaches, are just across the street.
Located in Fort Walton within walking distance of several excellent restaurants and a convenience store, The Hermitage is convenient to the Fort Walton Beach art museum, Gulf Island National Seashore, Sasquatch Zoo and numerous shopping opportunities and water sports.
Guests can take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool overlooking the bay or catch some rays on the reclining chairs on the spacious deck. There are lighted picnic areas and romantic porch swings so you can sit and watch the boats enter the bay.
This is a fruitful fishing pier – a recent guest caught over 20 fish including lady fish, blue fish and a small shark! You’ll be able to easily net crabs right in front on the condo. There are community grills, the unit has its own washer/dryer, ample parking and 24-hour security.
This condo has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed, one with 2 twins and queen aerobed, sleeping 6 altogether.
Across the street is the public beach access, with restrooms and showers, even parking. This beach is much less crowded than others in the Destin area, as it has so few buildings around it.
Come enjoy a laid-back vacation at The Hermitage By The Bay!

What a great little unit! We found it very clean and inviting from the moment we walked in. The pool area was lovely, easy access to the beach, although the street you have to cross can get pretty busy and driving is the best bet to get to the beach. The key pad entry was amazing...no need to keep track of a key! Service by RealJoy Vacations was exceptional. Only complaint would be the very unorganized kitchen. There was tons of pots/pans/containers etc in the cabinets and they were in total disarray. Could probably get rid of about half of it and have a nicely equipped kitchen for any kind of cooking you'd need to do on vacation. Would definitely go back!

Our family really enjoyed our stay here. It was like being at home while on vacation. The layout was perfect and we had everything that we needed. We enjoyed the view of the bay and having the beach access right across the road was nice. We would love to come back again!

I stayed here with my teenage daughter and her girlfriend for 6 days in March. I thought the location was perfect - not too close to touristy areas, and within walking distance of the beach. Utilizing the beach at the nearby Beasley Park was wonderful due to its lack of many other people and cleanliness. The condo itself was decorated in a way that inspired me and gave me ideas for my own home! The bedroom for the girls with the two twin beds was perfect, and the bedroom with the queen bed which I slept in was wonderful as well. I loved the deck with its view of the bay and being able to hear and see wildlife so close up. We saw dolphins from the deck too! The kitchen was well equipped and I liked how the amenities provided such as soap and detergent for the bathrooms and kitchen lasted me during my 6-day stay. The condo was in a quiet area and there were no noises from any of the other tenants, except for some construction on a nearby unit and the re-tiling of the pool. The fact that the pool was not available was a disappointment, however, RealJoy was able to substitute access to a nearby property's pool, which was nice. The only item I would admonish regarding the condo was that there was quite a bit of dust on surfaces, decorative objects and the ceiling fans. Otherwise, everything else was adequately clean. Another item that was unsatisfactory was that we could not access the boat dock to walk out on it as the code we were given did not work. When we asked a man from RealJoy who came to our door, he said he would get someone to get back to us, but no one ever did. We just let it go and did not pursue it. Overall, a nice place to be and we are thankful that we got to be there!

This condo is tastefully decorated and feels like home. Perfect location other than being across the street from beach, too far to walk with kids and tons of stuff. Other than that, no complaints. Centrally located to many great restaurants and shopping etc. Read more
