Several of you have emailed and asked where we go each year in Florida. My mom and dad have a beautiful condo in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. But here’s the best part…they rent it out throughout the year!

Here’s some basic info from the website:

For your next beach vacation, head to Surf Dweller! Centrally located on Santa Rosa Boulevard on Okaloosa Island, Surf Dweller is an exciting beachfront property with lots to offer. The 7-story property has spacious 2- and 3-bedroom units. Each condo offers an open living and dining space, large kitchen, separate utility room with washer and dryer, and a large direct beachfront balcony accessible from the living room and master bedroom. These units also include free high-speed Internet access!

Surf Dweller features several on-site amenities for guests: a large recreation area with a refreshing pool, separate children’s pool, a deck for sunbathing, and a covered picnic area; a lighted tennis court, raised above the parking area; a barbeque grilling area with tables; and boardwalk access directly to the beach.

We love it because…

  • it’s right on the beach
  • the beach is beautiful, white sand
  • the condo is so spacious that even when there were 7 of us, we had plenty of room
  • it’s a 14 hour drive from our central IL home—we drive it in one day!
  • it’s not in an extremely tourist driven area
