Beach Bundle is being rolled out for our condos in Fort Walton Beach and, if you stay with us this spring, you’ll have the added benefit of these products. So, what is it exactly? Well, RentGearHere.com provides a range of beach toys, bikes, and baby gear rentals but Beach Bundle is just a small sample of that. With Beach Bundle, you will find two backpack beach chairs and an awesome boogie board waiting for you when you arrive at your Okaloosa Island condo. The chairs have padded headrest, a place to set your cold beverage and straps to carry them down that will leave your hands free to maneuver the family. And the kids are going to love the boogie board! This isn’t your typical beach store find; this is a high end slice of wave-cruising fun. Beach Bundle is also a part of our Windmark Beach homes on the Forgotten Coast. Enjoy the use of four backpack chairs, as well as four bicycles perfect for crusing the coast.
Beach Bundle is included as a part of your Fort Walton Beach and Windmark Beach reservations, although Windmark guest may opt out if they don’t wish. Don’t pack the beach chairs this summer, just book with Southern to have them waiting for you when you arrive!
The Wheel of Fortune, that is. On Thursday, November 15, 2012, your favorite Gulf Coast vacation rental company will be the top prize on this time-honored game show.
So, what are the contestants vying for exactly? First off, Southern will provide a weekly stay in a gorgeous three bedroom condo at one of our favorite Fort Walton Beach resorts, the Azure, for two. After the winner and their guest have flown in, courtesy of the Northwest Florida Regional Airport, they will be treated to a dolphin cruise as well as enjoy a day of golf on one of the area’s beautiful courses.
If you love Wheel of Fortune and often enjoy a sweet Southern vacation of your own, tune in and play along! Again, the episode airs November 15, 2012; check your local listings for times.
