We stayed in Unit C206 the week of Oct 17 and booked through ResortQuest. Our condo was a ground floor unit all the way in the back, in the corner. We loved the location since it was quiet, private and had a large grassy area for the younger kids to play on (ages 1.5, 3, and 9). Our front door opened into the parking garage area, so that was excellent for unloading/loading the car and bringing in groceries. We arrived early in Ft. Walton from a very long drive from Ohio and were able to check in an hour earlier than the time we were told. Our unit was clean and had all the ammenities we were expecting, including free wi-fi. The grounds were immaculate and beautiful. The walk to the beach isn't too far, don't see why others have complained about this. My toddlers managed just fine on their own two feet. The beach is clean and beautiful!! We had no problem getting chairs at all, but that may be because we were there in the off-season. I doubt the place was even 1/4 full, so there were always beach chairs and pool chairs available, but I could see how it might be a problem during busier times. Now for the not-so-good. I wouldn't normally mention things so petty, but for over $300 a night I'm going to. First and foremost (and this isn't petty) there were cockroaches in our condo! I killed at least 3-4 a day. I don't think this is the case in most of the units, but I have read 1-2 other reviews mentioning this. Gross!!!! Made me sleep with one eye open. And as far as the beds go, they could've been a bit more comfy with better bedspreads. The Hampton has nicer bedding than our condo did. Our TP holder in one bathroom kept falling off the wall, there were footprints on the wall from previous guests, our fire alarm went off for no reason in the middle of the night once, there's no privacy what-so-ever for the kids in the bunks. I would suggest hanging up a cheap shower curtain rod and curtain. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. I would recommend staying here if you have young kids (under 12), not for a romantic getaway. Otherwise, I'd probably head down the road and stay in Destin which is closer to more restaurants and nightlife.
