Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)
By way of introduction I am a recently retired bookkeeper. Until now I worked for the City School System in my hometown, Tuscaloosa, Al.. Being retired gives me the time to put all of my energy into the rental business. I rent daily & weekly accommodations in Florida, Gatlinburg, Tennessee and guest quarters for Special Events in Tuscaloosa, Al.Renting these units are satisfying and provide a service that is needed and appreciated. The extra bonus Is I meet people from all over the United States. I started this rental business in 1988. My goal is to give every guest the best accommodations at the best rate. When my guests are happy, I'm happy!
Owner purchased this Condo in 1996
Why Owner chose Fort Walton Beach
I fell in love with Okaloosa Island when I watched an engineer build a huge sandcastle on the beach one afternoon. The castle had candles inside the tunnels and a moat surrounding. It was quite a work of art. I watched until the emerald green waves washed it away at dusk. I was hooked, no pun intended! The sand on the beach was so white, the sunsets amazing and the town was perfect. It had everything to offer within 3 miles. It was 6 miles from Destin Harbor so had the same emerald green water as Destin without the traffic. The unit itself was large and had a huge balcony overlooking the Gulf. One of my loyal snowbirds describes it as a "'Million Dollar View"'.
What makes this Condo unique
This unit is decorated with comfort and relaxation in mind. It is tasteful but fun. It is larger than most one bedroom units because it was built before they began to run out of beach so is roomy and has all the amenities needed. The amazing ocean view can be seen from the kitchen, eating area, living room and private balcony that overlooks the Gulf.

Perfect for our quick getaway! Will definitely be staying here again!
Very clean and everything as described! The view was amazing! This was our families first beach experience, and were very happy with the ease of everything. We have zero complaints and hope to come back to Gloria’s in the future!
Exactly what we hoped for.
Wonderful experience. Great location. Would do it again.
We loved our stay in this unit. Everything was exactly as stated for this listing. You can’t beat the price for this beachfront condo.
Awesome vacation/ Fantastic View
We thoroughly enjoyed the much needed getaway. Great location, with a home away from home feeling. Can't brag enough about the view and convenience of accessing the beach. The mattresses (bed and sofa) could be replaced but that in itself would not prevent me from utilizing this condo again. Loved it!
Had a nice stay on Okaloosa Island at Island Sands. Condo was clean and comfy accommodated 3 adults and 1 child perfectly. I was worried about only 1 shower but it all worked out and had plenty of hot water. Short walk to the beach with a wonderful view. Pool was nice and clean. I would stay again.
