“Fabulous condo on the bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We just spent the last several days at the Hermitage condos. We loved our stay there. It had all the comforts of home: fully equiped kitchen, laundry, living, dining areas, two full baths and a balcony with a wonderful view of the pier. My husband thoroughly enjoyed fishing off the pier and spent every morning and every night till 2-3 am fishing. He caught approximately 15-20 fish (lady fish, blue, and a small shark). Our kids went out with a casting net each night and caught big blue crabs. The pool area was very nice with reclining chairs. The entire area was very nicely landscaped. We enjoyed relaxing on the swings watching the boats come into the bay. Each time we went to the beach we drove across the road to a public beach access whereas it would have been a fairly long walk especially with 4 kids. But the public access was very nice with showers and bathrooms, and wasn't as populated as parts of the beach with hotels.
Recommendations:may need to bring extra trash bags, Landry detergent, toilet paper and possibly dish washing capsules/liquid. There's a strange stinging sensation felt around the lights inside the pool...not sure why but we all felt it. Overall...we all really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone! Making our reservations was really easy, all the info was sent by email with very clear directions for entering/leaving condo, etc. We only had one vehicle so our assigned parking area was no problem at all. Overall we had a very enjoyable trip. There's many excellent restaurants close by and of course the beach was BEAUTIFUL!

I went with a group of friends to Fort Walton Beach and we had a wonderful trip. The Hermitage Condos are completely equipped with all the comforts of home and beautifully decorated! Our trip would have been perfect if we had been able to locate someone to issue parking passes before being threatened with tow away fees. While there is an office on site no one was available and the sign on the door said the manager was on the property never to be found. Other than the parking issues our trip was fantastic! There is no shortage of fun and sun and the beaches are gorgeous!
