Pre-Thanksgiving Stay on the Beach November is a great time to be on Okaloosa Island with the weather still warm and no crowds on the beach. Had fabulous views of sunrises, sunsets and all the beauty of the beach and Gulf. Thanks to everyone at Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor for a very easy, hassle free rental experience. I have looked at multiple Okaloosa Island properties over years of visits, and it is clear to me that your agency’s rentals have the highest standards for cleanliness and housekeeping. There were a few maintenance issues that the owners need to address, but overall it was a wonderful stay and I will definitely use your agency again in the future. Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving!! Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor; Saturday, November 25, 2017 Thanks so much for a wonderful experience on Okaloosa Island at the Surf Dweller unit 508, and am so glad that you also enjoyed our fabulous sunrises and sunsets. We hope to see you again in the future, and most of all to let you know that our maintenance issues have been addressed to the owner. We hope you also had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.

Okaloosa Island - THE place to stay Surf Dweller is an ideal place to stay on Okaloosa Island. All units look out on the Gulf and the beach is unbeatable. We are disappointed that most of the owners have been talked in to renting for 4 months at a time and blocking 2 month rentals. I anticipate problems with that plan but nobody asked me.
