Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great place thanks for you letting us go to your condo we had a BLAST and the whole thing went so smooth. The unit was bigger than we thought and the back patio is just awesome for the kids to play, its like have a baby sitter built in when they can play in the sand right at the back door...Really thanks so much for you professional attitude and the prompt reply to my inquiry some just dont even respond and you did within minutes of my inquiry...

We will use VRBO again and will always call you first...

Thanks again,

Cheap, last minute family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this was a very last minute trip & the owner was nice to give us a good price. The location is on the end, so it's quiet, but not far from pool or beach. If you're looking for a high-end, well-decorated condo, this is not it. The decor & furnishings need updated terribly, & the pullout sofa needs replaced. However, the condo is very clean, so for the price, it was just fine for a last minute vacation.

A great deal!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great deal. Watersedge was wonderful. JR gave us insight on where to eat like Old Bay Steamer and the restaurants on the boardwalk by the aquarium. We were right on the beach, on the first floor, with the patio being private; it was just wonderful for the kids to play. The swimming pool was great never too crowded. We'll be back again.

Thanks for the wonderful vacation we needed it.

Great Vacation Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an AWESOME time at this location and JR was a joy to work with from the initial conversation we had about the dates available. He was extremely pleasant and helpful with helping me secure my reservation and also very helpful in telling me about things to do in the area. I will definitely contact him again for all of my vacation needs and look forward to working with him again later this year when we take our winter trip to Florida.

Water's Edge

  • 4 of 5

Just left this complex today and it was nice. This was our first time staying here. The complex was well taken care of and clean. The room was clean and very roomy, perfect for a family of 4. I do have to say the bed in the master could use an update; it was a killer on my back and I'm not a person with back trouble. Everything else was great. Pool area was good never too crowded. Would stay here again considering they change the bed. We rented a pontoon at Salty Jig in Destin and toured Crab Island and the harbour and it was AWESOME!!!! Great prices too. A.J's and The Back Porch are great places in Destin to eat. Hope to return soon!!! Thanks again.

DEAL!!!!!! Great for small family.

  • 5 of 5

I researched alot for a deal!!! Most condo owners want to make alot of money for their investment! J.R. wants to rent his place out for you to enjoy and for him to cover his basic expenses. The kitchen has everything you have at home right down to dish rags and washing machine soap. Go to a Publix Grocery Store (2 miles away) and you can have food for the week to cook just like at home. Forget taking your keys to the beach and losing them, punch in a code to get back into condo. SLEEPING YOU ASK? My wife and I slept just fine in king size bed. 7 year old girl and twin boys (5 years old) slept sideways on sofa pull out (they are kids and they were tired from the day). Also has love seat couch. No oceanfront view but who cares? 20 second walk to pool, 35 second walk to beach. $20 a day for 2 chairs and umbrella but you can get a discount if you pay for the week or, just buy something at grocery store to stick in the ground to cover you for the week on the beach and leave it in the closet for the next family (pay it forward). Shade is shade! J.R. was a phone call away to answer any stupid questions that I had. Thank you J.R. We had a great time!

Great room from a great guy...

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time thanks so much for letting us use your condo!!! And thanks for all your help with finding my brother you got right there so really thanks...The unit was more than we expected and clean as a whistle. REALLY it was spotless and smelled so fresh that makes all the difference in the world.

The kids loved the back porch they stayed there and played in the sand for hours...

We went to the resturant you said was so good you were right it was why you go to the beach...

The door lock was great to have the code was cool we swam and didnt take a thing with us to the beach to worry about loosing that was such a good idea you had.

Thanks again,
