Fort Walton Beach Florida has been a family vacation destination for many years. Each new generation still travels back to vacation condos in Fort Walton Beach as they did when they were children.
With the Emerald Coast Convention Center right here on Okaloosa Island, it has also gained welcome attention as a group and business destination.
Okaloosa Island is the stretch of beach in Fort Walton Beach. The “Island” is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the south, the Sound, our intercoastal waterway, to the north and by federal land to the east and west. This has allowed the area to remain a charming moderate size, not too overpowering, yet large enough to offer first class accommodations, dining, activities and attractions. Through the years this area has undergone wonderful and thoughtful redevelopment. While some classic beach retreats of yesteryear are still present, Fort Walton Beach vacation rentals boast many new resorts, offering travelers options to best fit their vacation needs. Let us lure you to the Island in one of our beachfront properties, ranging from one to four bedrooms. The vacation spot of the past has been revived and is definitely a current favorite, offering the same great beach and our most welcoming rates on daily, weekly and monthly stays in Ft Walton Beach!
