Recent Fort Walton Beach reviews

  • Great Condo!

    "We have stayed at more than a dozen condos in the area and this is our favorite. The master king bed is very comfortable and the patio furniture consisting of a bar height table and 4 chairs along with two lounge chairs was just perfect. The view from this 6th floor condo is fantastic. The kitchen was well stocked and all the furniture was in great condition and up to date. The two gulf front pools and the grounds were always clean and well maintained. The owners are great to work with and promptly responded to all our inquiries. We will definitely book this condo again and recommend it to our friends and relatives."

  • Third Times A Charm!

    "My family and I recently returned from a two week vacation in this terrific unit at Waters Edge. This was our third year staying in this unit and working with the Bishops. They are the nicest people and very accommodating. We would recommend this unit to our family and friends in a heart beat. The condo is beautiful and very well equipped. The property at Waters Edge is very well maintained and has all the comforts of home. The oversized pool never seems to be crowded. This unit is close to the elevator, and parking on the same level as the condo is very convenient. The view is absolutely gorgeous and we can't wait to go back next year. We did go on one of the "Dolphin Tours" this year and we can't wait to do it again next year. We took the Sea Blaster and we highly recommend it. They even let my 22 year old Down Syndrome son, Tyler, steer the boat. He was in heaven. It was just a perfect two week vacation and the weather was gorgeous this year also. It was a blessing to relax in this beautiful condo and leave all our busy lives back home. Can't say enough good about it! Thank you to the Bishop family for sharing your beautiful beach home with all of us. The Clan From Houston, TX"

  • Wonderful condo!

    "The unit is very well-kept, clean and spacious. We were a family a four and had lots of space for relaxing. The unit is very clean. The owner was great to deal with and helped make our stay very enjoyable. The unit has lots of windows and is very quiet. Its location at the end of the building is ideal. The whole complex is really very nice. It had lots of families and was generally pretty quiet. I would highly recommend this location for families of all ages. We traveled with an 11 year old and a 19 year old. They both enjoyed the condo as well as the complex."

This cozy, beach city along the Emerald Coast is popular for its year-round fishing and well-known as a beach resort community.

The warm subtropical climate gives way to hot and humid summers that last from late May to mid-September. Even the winter weather is on the warm end of the spectrum and is a great place to escape the snow. Most days in Fort Walton Beach are sunny, with a much higher average of sunny days compared to the rest of the country. This hidden gem of a vacation destination is full of family-friendly activities, resorts and attractions.
