About Achilles Sakis

After serving 20 years in the US Air Force, I'm now starting my civilian career. My wife, kids, and I hope to one day enjoy our condo after retirement, but in the meantime we'd like you to have a wonderful time at our lovely beach condo!

Achilles Sakis purchased this condo in 2003

Why Achilles Sakis chose Florida Panhandle

The beautiful sugar white sand beaches here in the Panhandle are the best in Florida and in the country!

What makes this condo unique

Since 2003 we have owned our own piece of paradise here at Waters Edge. We constantly strive to provide outstanding guest service and the best vacation home away from home for our guests. We do a much better job than the big rental companies because to them, their individual units are one of hundreds that they manage. We personally manage our unit ourselves to make sure everything is just right. We want you to come back time and time again, and to tell your friends about us as well. Since the beginning we have had the privilege of providing an outstanding vacation destination to hundreds of guests. Just read our outstanding guest reviews, they speak for themselves!

Perfect condo for our family

This condo was clean, well stocked, and had more than enough room to spread out. We loved the quick access to the beach and pool. Highly recommended!

Perfect beach vacation for our family

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location for our beach--loving family. The bunk room was a fun hideout for the kids on our down time. The beds in both the Master and guest rooms were comfortable. 2 full baths made it easy for everyone to get cleaned up before heading out. There was plenty of storage space for all of our clothes and suitcases, so we never felt cramped. The unit had everything we needed aside from our clothes, swimsuits, and beach towels. The seasonal beach service was excellent. The pools were large, clean, and never too crowded. Being on the 2nd floor, the older kids could swim while we sat and talked on the balcony keeping an eye on the younger kids resting inside. Best of the all, the views and sounds of the water made everything enjoyable. We loved eating and playing cards on the balcony with the rolling waves and dolphins swimming by daily. Aside from the fun of enjoying all the beach and water has to offer, the kids liked the free Netflix movies and board games on some afternoons. We liked being far enough away from the hub-bub and crowds in Destin, but we were still within an easy drive to go out to eat at our favorite restaurant, the Back Porch. There was a grocery store within a short drive and a convenience store just a couple of blocks away for any last minute necessities. We also enjoyed mini golf and ice cream just a short walk from the condo; it was perfect for our family as it was not crowded or over stimulating. Everyone loved walking along the beach hunting for ghostcrabs at night and shells in the morning. Playing frisbee, football, volleyball, and having a catch on the beach provided plenty to keep everyone active. All in all, we cannot wait to return again sometime.

Our only issues were very minor. The pullout sofa was not very comfortable to sleep on; thankfully the kids were too tired to care. Additionally, the washing machine and dishwasher run very loudly. Not a big deal, and it definitely did not take anything away from our stay; it is just something to be aware of.

We are thankful to the owners for renting their home at the beach to us, and we appreciate their honest and timely communication. It also made us feel comfortable knowing they are local and were available if we needed anything at all.

You won't be disappointed if you choose to rent this unit.

  • 3 of 5

The condo was acceptable, but not worth the price. I've stayed in Fort Walton or Destin 4 times in last 8 years and this condo was our least favorite. The appliances (dish washer and washing machine) were so loud that we couldn't use them while in the condo. Also, we were forced to purchase an insurance policy in order to book this place. We aren't high class but when you shell out over $3000 for a week's stay you expect more than we received at this condo.

On a separate note, Destin has become very overcrowded. Every night you deal with bumper to bumper traffic along 98.

Food prices are way out of line too. Whataburger was about the only place we could eat for under $100. We could have went to the Caribbean for the money we spent in Destin this year.

Then the police state kept everyone out of the ocean for 4 days AFTER tropical storm Cindy came through. The sun was shining for 3 straight days, yet we couldn't enjoy the ocean even though the surf had subsided. This will be our last trip to Destin area.
