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 Florida Main North West

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 condo! It has all the comforts of home, and was very spacious! Great for our 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

The property is a great place for families. Shawn and his family have done a wonderful job of thinking of all the things you would want or need. There was even a crock pot for a team dinner if you needed it. The bedrooms all had a bathroom , so no need to try to coordinate showers, and they have beach and pool toys for your use. We were down for a softball tournament, and EVERYONE who came over to visit said they wished their places were as nice as ours! Highly recommend this one!

Spacious & Well-Equipped Beachfront Vacation Rental in Destin/Fort Walton, FL Area!

  • 5 of 5

It was more than I expected!!! There were five of us, two adults and three teenagers. The condo was very spacious and well-equipped with everything you'd possibly need to enjoy a Florida beach vacation and the comforts of home! This beachfront condo was very clean and well-taken care of with modern furnishings and decor throughout the entire floor. Washer and dryer was a plus.

My favorite feature of this vacation rental was a million-dollar view of the beach and the Gulf. The balcony was very large and we often had our breakfast while watching dolphins. The white sandy beaches are just steps away. Pool and fitness center were nice and convenient but we mostly stayed on the beach.

The location of the Water's Edge property is central to Destin Harborwalk and nearby attractions. We enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere of the Okaloosa Island while still being close to Destin. It was very safe to walk to nearby stores and restaurants. We will definitely be back.

Tip: Book early (at least 8 months for summer stays) as this is a premium unit and will sell out fast.

On a scale of 1 to's an 11!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at Water's Edge several times and this is by far the best condo we've rented! It was so nicely decorated, extremely clean, and had so many little details that were welcoming to the guests. The balcony is wonderfully relaxing! The open dining and living area was fabulous, and the fact that the table was higher so that you could see out to the ocean was amazing. The owner, Shawn, was so easy to work with and made the experience feel so much more personable than dealing with a rental agency. It was VERY hard to say goodbye to this place and we will definitely be back!

Two Thumbs Up for Waters Edge 603

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spacious, very clean and had everything we needed. The view is amazing and we loved that it was a penthouse. The balcony was large and relaxing to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

The Waters Edge property as a whole was well kept and very quite. The owner Shawn, was very responsive and went out of his way to ensure everything was ok. We will recommend this place to all our friends and hope Condo 603 will be available if we ever return.

Totally Five star

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this area every year for the past four years and this was undoubtedly the best experience we have had. The Condo was very well maintained, structurally "quiet" - in that there is no neighbor noise bleed through - and we couldn't ask for better views. Parking was not a problem (sheltered) and there was security on the grounds at night. We would recommend staying here to anyone interested in having a vacation that is a bit above all the rest.
