Ft. Walton Beach, Florida, United States 32548
Welcome to “Beachy Keen”! The whole interior of this condo has been freshly painted with bright, beach-y colors…from the moment you walk in the door you will know that your vacation has begun!
EXPERIENCED VACATION RENTAL OWNERS – WHY WE BOUGHT THIS CONDO
Beachy Keen is our second vacation rental property. Our first is a condo located in the heart of Summit County, CO which we bought because of its amazing view of Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile mountain range. We knew that the location and view were what guests would love & why they would want to return again in the future.
For the same reasons why we love our CO condo, we fell in love with this unit in Dune Pointe. To begin, it was the largest 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom unit we saw in our extensive property search, at 1284 square feet. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax without feeling cramped or on top of each other.
Additionally, Dune Pointe is a low-density building, with only 20 units. This means that our guests will have plenty of room on the private beach since they will be sharing it with just 19 other units, unlike most other condo buildings that have many more units.
WHAT THIS CONDO HAS THAT MOST DO NOT: SPACIOUS BALCONY & MILLION $$ VIEW!
Just like our CO condo, the main reason why we bought our Dune Pointe unit was THE VIEW! We knew we could change almost everything inside the condo, but it was the view of the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico that sold us on the property. The large balcony has plenty of room to relax on lounge chairs and to also sit at the table and enjoy your morning coffee or meals “al fresco”. While relaxing on the balcony you can enjoy the sound of the waves’ constant dance towards the shore. (It didn’t hurt that during our property search the first time we viewed this unit we saw a pod of dolphins swimming and playing in the surf just off of the beach directly in front of the building!)
DIRECT BEACHFRONT LOCATION – NO ROADS TO CROSS
Because of this building’s location (directly on the beach) our guests have access to the beach just a short walk over the dunes using the private walkway. You will not have to pack up your car to drive to a public beach access, nor carry your equipment, coolers, etc. across a road to the beach. As a service for our guests, your stay at Beachy Keen includes a reservation for two beach chairs and one umbrella set up each day on the beach just for you (March 1 through October 31).
PERFECT FOR SMALL FAMILIES OR TWO COUPLES TRAVELING TOGETHER
Inside the condo you will find all of the comforts and conveniences necessary to make your stay at Beachy Keen feel like home!
The master bedroom features a comfortable king-sized bed. You will find a 32” flat screen TV & DVD player in the armoire in this room and an iron & ironing board in the closet. The en-suite bathroom has a jetted whirlpool tub for a relaxing soak after a long day in the sun! There is also a walk-in shower and a vanity with one sink in this bathroom.
The second bedroom also features a king-sized bed, making this condo perfect for couples traveling together. This bedroom has a 26” flat screen TV & DVD player. Right next door you will find the second bathroom, which has a combination tub/shower and a vanity with one sink.
Quality linens, bedding and fluffy bath towels, hand towels and washcloths are provided for your use. (We do NOT provide beach towels, however. If you don’t want to pack your own you can buy inexpensive beach towels at one of the many beach stores in the area.) There is a hair dryer in each bathroom.
The spacious living area features extra-wide sliding doors that welcome the awesome Gulf view into the room. Here you will find a queen-sized sleeper sofa, as well as other comfortable seating. A large (50”) flat screen smart TV and BlueRay DVD player are available in the living area for your entertainment.
The dining table seats six, and there are two barstools at the kitchen counter.
The kitchen features beautiful granite counters, brand new stainless appliances and is stocked with dishes, glassware, flatware, pots & pans, coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, refrigerator, stove/oven and dishwasher…. everything needed to please the chef in your family!
For your convenience there is a stackable washer/dryer in the utility closet. You will also find 2 Beach Chairs & a Boogie Board in this closet for your enjoyment during beach season.
DUNE POINTE BUILDING AMENITIES
The building has plenty of parking in front and also an elevator for the convenience of our guests. There is an area on the side of the building that has a charcoal barbecue grill that our guests can use when they wish to cook out. (Guests must provide their own charcoal for the grill.)
A beautiful, sparkling swimming pool is located in the back between the building and the beach. For those who don’t care to sit on the beach there are lounge chairs on the deck around the pool. Please play safely and supervise children at all times; there is not a lifeguard on duty at this pool.
There are restrooms available for our guests’ use in the pool area, which means you don’t have to go all of the way up to the condo to use the bathroom when enjoying the beach. When you are finally ready to go inside for the day you can rinse off all of the sand and salt water at the outdoor shower.
In the winter the swimming pool at Dune Pointe is heated to 80 degrees when the water temperature falls below that temperature EXCEPT when the air temperature falls below 45 degrees. The pool is not heated when the outside temperature is 45 degrees or colder.
Because of our extensive vacation rental property search in Destin & Okaloosa Island, we are confident that Beachy Keen is one of the most spacious units with the most excellent views around! The direct Gulf views and private beach access are the reasons why we know you will enjoy Beachy Keen as much as we do every time we visit!

This condo is absolutely AMAZING!! The moment we walked into this rental we were blown away at how beautiful the décor was and how everything was so wonderfully done. The view of the beach, the pool, and the balcony was perfect!! Thank you Valerie for such a wonderful place to stay at the beach and being so sweet and easy to work with!! Would recommend this rental to anyone!!
My family loved it. The owners made the condo feel like our own home. We had everything we needed and it was very comfortable for a family of four. The kitchen had top notch appliances, cookware and dishes. The patio was very comfortable and had a nice breeze to sit out there to enjoy a meal or read a book. The view was AMAZING and quick access to the beach. I would recommend this unit to anyone. I'm ready to come back. Thank you Valerie.
This was an excellent condo and beautifully decorated! The owners made sure that their guests had everything that was needed for a wonderful Florida vacation. The balcony was so nice to sit and watch the beach and always seemed to have a nice breeze. Very comfortable furniture on the balcony with a table and chairs and two lounge chairs. There was everything you would need for a rainy day with the condo fully stocked with movies and games for all ages. We had two little ones with us and were happy to find a booster chair and plastic character plates, cups and bowls for their use. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook with high quality appliances, cookware and dishes. We forgot to pack our crock pot and were happy to find they had one there. The linens and bedding were very nice and the condo was very clean. Because this building has fewer condos, there was never a wait for the elevator or carts to use to take items up to your room. It was very quiet there and the pool was not crowded. I would recommend this unit to anyone and we have stayed at several condos in Fort Walton Beach.
We had a great week staying at this condo. All the comforts of home were provided. The free beach service was great and the private pool for the residents was hardly used. There were never crowds at the beach and the sand was powder white. Val was great to work with and quickly responded to all our questions.
Our vacation was great. The weather was good for five of the seven days and of course the shopping was fine in the rain. We really liked the condo. It is spacious and comfortable. It was nicely decorated and contained everything that we needed. We love the area and look forward to our next vacation.
Wonderful condo and beautiful area to visit! This was one of our best vacations ever!! The condo is very spacious with everything you could possibly need. Beds were extremely comfortable. Having the beach service made heading out to the beach so much simpler. Perfect location- Dune Pointe is uncrowded and laid back with easy access to all the restaurants and attractions of Destin.
Excellent place. This place has everything that we could ask for. Kids had a blast. Pool was great. Beach was amazing. The beach service was great for the wife and I to sit and watch the kids place in the sand and in the water. We will be back for years to come. Will not stay anywhere else!!! Owners are easy and fantastic to work with.
We had a phenomenal time at Dune Pointe~ From the fully stocked, top of the line kitchen to the updated rooms and comfortable beds there was nothing more we could have asked for! Our kids enjoyed the long walks on the beach and dolphins twice a day from the balcony!!! Not to mention they had the pool to themselves most of the time. We could not have requested a better place to stay or a better location! The owners were very easy to work with and the response time was immediate! I would recommend this condo to everyone and have already to a coworker! The worst part about it was we had to leave! Thank you again for an amazing trip!!! We will be back!
We absolutely loved this condo. This was our first time at Fort Walton Beach and it was beautiful and quiet. Valerie was by far the best condo owner with whom I have ever dealt. She was friendly, easy to get in touch with and always available if needed. This condo was updated and decorated beautifully. It had tons of space and great amenities. I was very pleased to be able to cook with new pots and pans and have a blender that actually worked! The building has easy access to the beach, and we were happy to have the chair and umbrella set up each day! We will definitely be back. Thanks again!
This condo is great! It is very roomy and very clean. We so enjoyed sitting out on the balcony at night, and listening to the ocean. The weather was so beautiful while we were there. We were able to swim in the pool, and the ocean. These owners go above and beyond making sure you have all the comforts of home. I so look forward to staying again. Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us.
Condo was outstanding. Spotless & fully stocked with everything a vacationer would need. Beach was pristine and the few from the condo was spectacular! Hope to return!
Thank you so much for your review! It was our pleasure to have you and your friends at our beach condo. We thoroughly agree with your opinion about the view…..spectacular! We would love to have you come stay with us again!
Condo was great. Had everything we needed for the week. The beach service is a great addition. Love being able to walk out onto the beach and have everything waiting for you. Beach was not crowded at all and very clean. With it being such a small complex, we were the only people in the pool whenever we went. Watched the dolphins from the balcony every morning. The only downside was the ocean itself. The June grass was horrible and you couldn't really enjoy the water at all. Obviously nothing the owner can control.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review! We are happy to hear how much our guests appreciate the free Beach Service that they receive with their reservation at our condo. You've discovered why we love Dune Pointe…the fact that it is such a low density building means that the private beach is never crowded….and how cool is it that you seemed to have the pool all to yourselves! I'm sorry to hear about the "June grass" you experienced, however…..the Gulf waters are usually clear and gorgeous, but is of course affected by the weather and the tides and there is no forecasting such conditions! I hope you'll consider visiting again!
We've stayed along the gulf coast numerous times and this is the only condo that exceeded our expectations! It is very spacious and comfortable and squeaky clean. The balcony is large with comfortable furniture (where I spent most of my time) and the view is amazing. Because it is a low density building, there were several times our family had the pool all to ourselves! Complimentary beach service is great because that means no dragging chairs and umbrellas down and back every day. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, including premium cookware. Wifi works very well throughout the condo. The laundry closet is far enough from the living room that you won't have to listen to it while you are watching tv, yet handy to both bedrooms. This is the only condo I've every stayed in with a walk-in closet in the master bedroom -- very handy. And I highly recommend the jetted tub in the master bath -- soooo relaxing! The owners have thought of everything and are determined for you to enjoy their condo. The shrimp at Stewby's is the best! Fokkers hamburgers are delicious and Mama Rosa has great take-out pizza. Have Fun!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review! It is gratifying to know that the details were noticed, such as the new cookware in the kitchen, the seating on the balcony and the care that our housekeeper takes each time she cleans our condo. It is our pleasure to provide the Beach Service for our guests! We look forward to hosting your family again in the future!
We had such a great time at this condo. It was perfect for our family of 4. The kids loved their room and it was nice to have 2 bathrooms. Even though it rained all day one of the days we still had a great relaxing day on the balcony and took advantage of the books and games provided. This area is very family oriented and not too loud or crowded. Perfect for us. The owners are great to work with and have thought of absolutely everything. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you for our first review (of many, we hope!) We love to think of families making summer vacation memories together in our condo! These are the times the kids will remember long after they have grown up! I hope you will consider being our guests again in the future!
