This was our first trip to the Fort Walton Beach area and we could not have been more pleased. We rented directly from the owner via VRBO. Personally I love this method of renting because you are provided with multiple pictures so you see exactly what the unit you are renting looks like. And the owner has a vested interest in making sure you are happy. Our unit was a penthouse unit in the Sandpiper building on the Bay side of the complex. Even though those buildings are older, the unit was spacious and well maintained. LOVED having the meticulously maintained pool area just downstairs. The pool area was cleaned every morning and the folks that work the area during the day are unobtrusive, helpful and polite. We had a beautiful view of the bay and the pool area from our balconies. We arrived rather late in the evening hungry and tired. It was great to have access to a delicious seafood dinner at the boardwalk entertainment complex just a block away. Located on Okaloosa island between Fort Walton Beach and Destin, delicious food and great entertainment are never far away. There were some excellent restaurants in FWB and right on the island too. We didn't spend a lot of time in Destin, but we did appreciate the laid back and not too crowded atmosphere of the island. Another plus was Fudpucker's Water Sports located right next to the resort. We rented waverunners and a pontoon boat and they were excellent to work with. It couldn't have been more convenient and those activities were the highlight of the trip. There is a skybridge over the main road with elevators on both sides. This makes travel between the beach and bay safe and convenient.
