About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Fort 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, immaculate Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Waters Edge. All of our stays have been enjoyable but this is the best condo we've rented there. It was spotless and had everything anyone could need including soap and shampoo in all the bathrooms and even make up wipes. There is a closet full of sand and water toys. The kitchen is stocked with all the dishes, utensils and appliances you need for cooking. They even provide coffee filters. My teen daughter noted that the owners are very thoughtful in what they include in the condo. Really, all you need to pack is your clothes, sunscreen and towels for the beach. Everything else is there.

The open kitchen/dining/living room gives you lots of space for the family to spread out. The oversized balcony has lots of seating and fantastic views. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large for a condo. The beds were all comfortable, even the sofa bed. We enjoyed the extra space and the high ceilings in this corner unit.

The owner was pleasant to deal with and was very responsive. He gave us some great restaurant suggestions.

Waters Edge is a beautiful property. It's beautifully landscaped and well-maintained. Parking is easy. The pools are always clean. The beach and pools are steps from the condo. Two chairs and an umbrella are waiting on the beach for you every day and included in the price of the condo, and you can pay for an extra set up, which we did because there were six of us.

I highly recommend this condo. The great reviews are well-deserved. If it's available, we will stay here every time we visit FWB.

Spacious and fully stocked beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to walk in and find a gorgeous place with an even more gorgeous view! There were 6 of us, 2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 toddlers. Everything we needed to cook (didn't do much of that) sleep (beds and linens were very comfy) entertain our little ones (Nick, Jr. and Disney channel, dvd player) and play on the beach or at the pool (toys, castle molds, floating rings, plus 2 chairs and umbrella everyday) was provided for us. The smaller pool was heated, which was handy because of the cooler weather this week. We felt that it was preferable to stay here on Okaloosa Island rather than in crowded Destin, and even though it isn't officially summer yet, it was the right move. Traffic in Destin was slow already and the beaches there looked much more crowded than where we were. Fort Walton Beach has made some great strides with new businesses in the last few years, there is a great Publix grocery store about a mile from the condo, and the downtown area looks much cleaner and nicer than the last time I was here 5 years ago. All in all it was a delightful week, and this condo was one of the best I have ever stayed in. I highly recommend for a multi-generational family. Everyone had plenty of privacy, but a large living/dining to gather when we wanted to be together.

We have nothing but praise for Unit 603 and the contacts we had with the owner.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and attractive and was well stocked with all the kitchen equipment needed. There were sand toys for the granddaughters as well. We loved the big front deck and ease of movement from unit to beach. We highly recommend unit 603 at Water's Edge.

Water's Edge 603

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and immediately hit the beach without having to check-in due to the owner's digital lock on the front door. The condo has everything you need and is a corner beachfront 3 BR unit. The condo has a large kitchen table that seats 8 people, a large deck that was nice to sit on and enjoy the view of the beach/gulf, washer and dryer, beach toys/boards, etc. The condo was immaculate and the owner (Shawn) was available for immediate assistance should something come up out of the ordinary. We actually left something behind in the condo and he mailed it to us. The condo sits on a white sand beach that is really nice and is close to several good restaurants, shops, etc. There is a large pool and a smaller heated pool adjacent to it. I would highly recommend this condo to anybody looking to stay in the Destin / Fort Walton / Okaloosa Island area and look forward to going back this fall and for years to come.
