Excellent condo. We loved having the Harbour view. Beach and restaurants in walking distance. We loved the fast response of host and the pictures of condo don't do it justice or show how lovely it is. It exceeded our expectations and we hope to stay there again.

The condo was great! Elevator and stairs were easily accessible to get to the lazy river. The rooms were nice and had a beautiful view of the bay. I did think the balcony stairs would take us directly to the bay and sidewalk, but it only led to the garage.

We had a great stay at this condo. The view of the bay each day was gorgeous and all of us enjoyed watching the boats come and go. Condo was spacious and very clean. Beds were comfortable. Everything around this property is well lit, including the parking garage. Very easy access to this condo by an elevator. The gate to the pool and lazy river is close. Beach is right across the road. You can access beach by a walkway over the highway or there is a parking garage. Nice splash pad play area on gulf side. Fudpuckers is right next door and has great burgers. You can just walk over and pick up dinner or dine in. Condo is easy access and a perfect location. Can't wait to visit again next year.

Being a local on a staycation is about the highest recommendation one can give! We loved being across the street from the beach, but having the bayside view and lazy river pool at our condo! Having children, this was the best setup for us. You have many walkable activities and restaurants nearby on Okaloosa Island. Shelley always responded quickly to my questions prior to our stay, everything was extremely clean and the pictures still don't do it justice! We loved this particular unit because it was right on the water, peaceful, and away from the noise of the pool area, but just a 5 minute walk to your choice of pools in the complex. Thanks for sharing this piece of paradise!

We stayed at Shelley's Vacation Favorites for 5 days and had a wonderful experience!! The condo was spacious, clean, nicely decorated, modern, and had everything we needed. The view of the bay was gorgeous and the amenities- lazy river, pools, hot tub, and fitness club were a plus. The only thing I wish were better were the beach equipments and beach amenities. The beach chairs & buggy carts were obviously well loved and used over the years and were rusted and broken. We spent the last two days going to the beach and laying out but couldn't use the equipment because they were broken. It would have been nice to have free beach chairs rentals included. Other than that we LOVED our experience renting from Shelley and have even recommended it to our friends. Will definitely rent from Shelley again!!

Response from Shelley:
Hey Pam, Thank you so much for coming and staying with us and for your very helpful feedback. I appreciate that. I am so sorry about the beach cart and chairs. I just checked the cart about a month ago and they were working. I apologize. They must have broken since then. I will get new chairs and beach carts this week! Thank you for the suggestion. That really helps me to keep things upgraded for our next guests. If this occurs in the future, please feel free to communicate these things to the owner. I, myself, would love to get what my guests need ON their vacation instead of after they leave. I would have loved to have immediately bought you new items and brought them over to your condo. Just a tip for your future AirBnB rentals. Also, we have to pay out of pocket to the Beach Service company yearly if we choose to provide this service to our guests. We feel because we are a bayside condo (across the street from the beach), a ground level condo with a private garage where we can easily stow away chairs/floats/carts, etc... , and have a private hot tub that we pay to have serviced and do not tack on the service fee to our guests, gives us reason to not buy the extra Beach Service. Thank you so much Pam for coming. I hope you will return again soon! All my best, Shelley
