Ft Walton-Oskaloosa Island

Looking for a place to stay first week of April. Suggestions? Hoping to be on beach at Ft Walton/Oskaloosa Island. Doesn't need to be fancy, just clean and on the beach. Thanks!

Check out Beach Bums Hideaway. This is where we stay and you can get no closer to the beach.

I really do not think you can go wrong with just about any condo, most are gulf front, a few might have side views. Check out VRBO, some of the more popular buildings are El Matador - which is quite reasonably priced - since it is older look at pictures closely and look for an updated unit. If you have kids Destin West or Waterscape is popular with families. I would suggest booking soon, that is proving to be the most popular week of the spring season. We own a condo and that week booked for us back in October.

I agree with Trixie, be hard to mess that one up! I've rented Pelican Isle and Gulf Dunes both off of vrbo.com, also Gulf Dunes via sunsetresortrentals.com. Love those beaches!

I agree with the suggestion about VRBO. We've rented condos through them twice (3rd time coming up in June) and have been pleased. My favorite is #36089 at Emerald Isle.

We always stay at the Nautilus - gulf front condos. Check the photos for the one you like. We always stay at 1202 and love it. Beautiful unit and clean, right on the beach. Quiet and relaxing. We beach it all day and then visit the great restaurants in Ft Walton Beach, Destin and Sandestin at night.

Stay away from Emerald Isle Condo Unit 210! We just returned a week ago. Had to go to the store and buy Clorox wipes and clean the entire place ourselves. Very dirty! Dried food in the sink, dried food on the table and placemats, fingerprints all over everything glass, dirty linens, kitchen chairs caked with dust, mold on shower curtains, and grinds still in the coffee maker! I could go on and on. Not sure why they are charging a cleaning fee, since it is clearly not being cleaned!

We love the El Matador....but like previous poster mentioned, look at the pics & the reviews. I agree, you can not really go wrong, staying on Okaloosa Island.....

We love VRBO.com.

If I found a dirty condo (has not happened to me) I would contact the owner immediately & have housekeeping come re-clean. I would not spend my time & money buying cleaning products & cleaning.

The first week of April is extremely popular! Have fun looking!!!! When you find something you like, re-post for opinions here :-)

Ditto the previous poster. If you find a unit that hasn't been cleaned, call your contact and let them know! They will fix it. Obviously owners and/or management companies hire cleaning crews, who unfortunately, can drop the ball.
