We had a great week in the Florida panhandle, and it starts with a great place like this to anchor down for the week. Your home is beautiful and very spacious for our family of four. Mom and Dad had a master bedroom/bath and our elementary age kids shared their own, separate bedroom with two twin beds. Having that second bathroom was definitely a plus! The living room, dining area, and kitchen were all very clean with beautiful décor. We were in very short walking distance to one of the pools, basketball court and multiple tennis courts. My only suggestion would be that the condo association should really consider adding additional basketball courts, as the one half-court goal was always full.
It was a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, however there is also a property parking lot (on-site) directly across the street from the beach. We took advantage of the beach access multiple times. A couple times that week we would hit the beach in the morning (coolest part of the day and best access to chair/umbrella rentals), dine at the on-site beach restaurant for lunch, play in the sand for bit, in the ocean again, then back to the room for dinner prepared in the full kitchen.
The condo is centrally located to many other activities in area with the benefit of not being an overcrowded spring break destination. The Harborwalk Marina and the Village of Baytown Wharf were both fun family destinations that are very close by. We also visited the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier twice. We fished once and the other time saw dolphins from the pier! There are also many options at the Marina for boat rides to see dolphins.
Thank you again for letting us stay in your beautiful vacation home!!
