About Shawn Schulze

We purchased the unit in December 2009. The unit had the best view and balcony of any properties I looked at on Okaloosa Island and in the Destin-area. I updated the unit and had it professionally designed so that the interior would match the quality of the open floor plan, 10' ceilings and top floor corner location. I started taking rentals in the summer of 2010 and have had nothing but great reviews and feedback from guests. We visit the area several times per year and make sure the condo is clean and in excellent condition - and we have high standards. I can assure you that I will do everything possible to make sure the condo exceeds your expectations.

Why Shawn Schulze chose Ft Walton Beach

The white sandy beaches and the beautiful blue Gulf of Mexico is what brings people to the Emerald Coast. This unit has unbelievable views from a huge balcony and Okaloosa Island offers a quiet, relaxing destination just minutes from the heart of Destin, Fl. Anything and everything the Destin-area has to offer is within a short drive.

What makes this condo unique

This is considered a 'penthouse' unit that is on the top floor in the west corner. The balcony is 28' long and offers unbelievable oceanfront views. 10' ceilings make the rooms seem even more spacious than the 1560 square foot. I recently renovated the unit, updating the kitchen, adding granite counters, crown molding and a professional design. The unit's interior now is just as impressive as the balcony and views.

Beautiful furnishings, plenty of space for family. We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

It was great. Only suggestion might be more paper towels and garbage bags. Recycling bins on the property in general. The condo was perfect!

Well appointed condo with an unbeatable view!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Okaloosa Island was fantastic! This condo is gorgeous and spacious. We had 8 people (4 couples) staying and we never felt crowded or on top of each other. The balcony overlooking the Gulf is large and has plenty of seating. Perfect for watching the sun rise or set. 2 beach chairs and an umbrella were included which was a big plus and the man that handles that operation is extremely nice and very helpful. He offered to store our pop-up tent for us so that we wouldn't have to lug it back up to the condo everyday. There are also SUPs and kayaks for rent, which was well worth the money. We got lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins with a baby! Although we didn't get in the pool because the Gulf was so calm and clear while we were there, the pool looked very clean and well kept. If I had to critique anything, and this is nitpicking, since we had 8 people staying, we thought there would be more paper products available. We had to go buy some the second day into the trip, but it wasn't a big deal. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this condo and would stay here again in heart beat!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation on the beach! The view was incredible from the balcony. The living room was big and spacious and the kitchen was fully stocked. So much space in all of the bedrooms. Pool and beach also great. Make sure to get to the beach early to ensure chairs in the front row.

We have rented numerous condos at Waters Edge and this is by far the best layout for a large family. Plenty of room to entertain and a gorgeous view from the large balcony

Shawn was great checking that we made it there and if we needed anything

We will rent this condo again

Fantastic Condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from this condo for Spring Break with the family, and it was absolutely perfect, right on the beach. The top floor presents great gulf views, and the heated pool was a nice change each afternoon. Lastly, Elliot was our beach attendant, and he always had our chairs out in the morning, and my kids (6 and 4) always had a a smile on their face when they saw him - couldn't have been nicer.
