The seven-story Island Princess is an Okaloosa Island landmark that has stolen the hearts of many families that return year after year to vacation in Fort Walton. Beautifully decorated one-, two-, and three-bedroom condominiums with spacious Gulf-front balconies provide guests with everything they need to have a relaxing and convenient vacation.
The property features a private dune walkover leading to the almost 500 feet of pristine, private beachfront. Onsite, you will also find a Gulf-front pool that is heated during winter months, a hot tub, an exercise room, and covered parking.
Located on Santa Rosa Boulevard, the Island Princess is close enough to the action of Miracle Strip Parkway, but far enough out to offer a retreat from the bustling tourist attractions nearby including popular Okaloosa Island restaurants Old Bay Steamer and Pandora’s Steakhouse.

We loved the condo, it was spacious and just like the pictures on line. Would definitely recommend to a family with children!
Island Princess #410 - Great place/scratchy blankets
Reviewed on Sunday, August 10, 2014
Great view! Right on the beach, with good beach attendants. The fourth floor view is unobstructed by the sea oats/dunes(1st/2nd floors view is somewhat blocked) The property is well maintained, with a staffed office on site. One of the DVD players stopped working on the trip and they were able to send someone up that day and replace it. We had what I feel were a couple of minor negatives, several light bulbs were out (making one guest room completely dark). They did replace the bulbs once told about it. The pull out sofa was very uncomfortable. It was okay for kids, but not good for adults. Lastly, the extra "blankets" provided were very scratchy and wool-like, almost like blankets you put between furniture to move. All in all, great place!

My children and I had an amazing time. We stay at Fort Walton every Spring break for the past 6 years and we are so happy that we chose to stay in a condo vs a hotel. We normally stay in a hotel but never had an ocean view. We will from now on go through Dale E Peterson Vacations, as well I will be telling my family, friends and co-workers about you! I had no problem getting exactly what I was wanting and the price was better than I had expected. We did have a lady that has a few units there. She gave me some cards and asked that if I represent her over Dale, that she would give me a free 8 day vacation stay a one of her units. However great that sounds, I am keeping my loyalty with Dale E Peterson!!! Thank you for the greatest stay at Fort Walton Beach!!

The rental was very clean, proximity to beach was excellent...all amenities were provided in kitchen...seemed more like home than a rental. Views were great. Loved being able to catch laundry up on down times,,,far enough away from the large crowds but close enough to shopping and restaurants. Thanks for the great vacation.
Island Princess #701 - Beautiful views, from sunrise to sunset!
Reviewed on Sunday, March 23, 2014
The service was great, Dave and staff were very fast to solve any of our problems!
I.P. 701 is a great place to stay! But could use a little T.L.C. such as paint new mattresses especially in 2nd bedroom and maybe replace or paint refrigerator handles. We were pleased with the appliances on the whole! And thought the cookware good.
We loved the location of our unit because of the great views! Being able to see both sunrise and sunset was awesome! And it was far away enough from the pool so the pool noises were never a problem.
The pools were usually warm and I enjoyed the water aerobics.
We best liked our location and least liked our inability to offer our guests the use of the second bedroom because of the bad mattress.
We look forward to our return Dec.28th!

Island Princess #609 - Home away from home
Reviewed on Wednesday, January 29, 2014
During the booking experience the staff were very thorough in the explanation of the cancellation, rescheduling process. I had a unique situation with my son's schedule.
The home was perfect for my needs with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. We all could get ready at the same time, didn't have stuff piled on top of stuff.
My room had its own door to the balcony that overlooked the beach. Since my room was located on the 6th floor, there was never a night that I didn't sleep with the door at least cracked an inch or so to take advantage of the sound of the water. It was amazing! Where the Island Princess is located, traffic is absolutely not an issue fully allowing you to enjoy the sound of the water.
There was literally nothing that I didn't like about the condo. I would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Just returned from our stay at the Island Princess this was two years in a row. Can't say enough good things about it. Its a beautiful location all ocean front rooms. Its a little quieter there than at Destin which we love but Destin is only a six mile drive down the road and theres anything you want to do there. We stayed in room 602 it was just a beautiful room.

The home was very comfortable, and the kitchen well furnished. Our view of the beach was wonderful, and we enjoyed seeing dolphins the first morning of our visit.
The only problem we had with the condo was that the ice maker didn't work. Even after someone checked it twice and said it was fixed, it never was. One guy said he'd come look at it the next morning, but never did. Luckily part of the family was nearby, so they always brought ice.
The location was good - not far from Destin and other areas of interest, that we went to , like the gulfarium, and hands on science museum, and the pier, and Fudpuckers, and Big Kahuna's.

I have been using Dale Peterson for a long time and I am always treated as a family member. The Island Princess is my favorite place to stay on the Gulf. It is always comfortable and close to anywhere I need to go in the Fort Walton/Destin area. It does not have the traffic that you get involved with in other areas. It is like being home with all the amenities needed for a short or long stay. What I liked the least was having to leave.

Second time we stayed in this condo, we love it! clean and close to the ocean.
One upgrade that could improve the condo experience is the internet service, you have a modem, but why not improve and purchase a router, and provide wireless, this is so much needed with smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
Otherwise, the perfect condo. We'll be there again for this labor day week. 2013.

From the moment we opened the door to our condo, everything was amazing! So clean and decorated perfectly! We felt immediately at home. The service and staff were professional, courteous and available. The view from the balcony cannot be described but I will try. The water is the most amazing color and the sand on the beach blindingly white. Fabulous eateries were near; but you can easily shop and cook in your very own kitchen. It really felt like home, only better. I would, without hesitation, recommend Island Princess to anyone who is looking for a memory making vacation with a mind-searing view! This really is paradise!
