Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

With an amazing gulf view, a private balcony, the beach and pool at your immediate disposal, what more could you want in a getaway? Walk just a few steps to the beach and enjoy the sugar white sands and emerald green waters. Retreat to the private balcony to relish the golden sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. Come see the exquisite beaches that are among the most beautiful in the world, right here on Okaloosa Island.

Aqua Villa is a four-story, 24-unit condo building directly on the beach. Amenities include a large swimming pool, elevator, common grilling area, grass and fenced area for kids to play, poolside lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. Because it is a smaller building, it provides a sense of intimacy with its environment of rustling palms, the scent of the gulf waters and the ever-present sound of the surf.

Conveniently located close to grocery, restaurants and shops, you won’t need to travel far for supplies or amenities while you vacation on the shore. A convenience store and post office located across the street provide for your immediate needs without even getting in your car.

This unit accommodates up to seven persons. Free Wi-Fi, flat-screen wall-mounted TVs in each room. The master bedroom has a California king bed and a private bath with Jacuzzi tub; the second bedroom has a queen and a single bed. A queen sofa sleeper is in the living area. The unit has a modern, fully-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar. The living area includes a six person dining and coffee tables, couch and chairs. Private balcony is furnished at cocktail height, to enable spectacular gulf views. Plenty of closet and drawer space is available for your personal items. Off street parking and carts make it easy to load and unload your vehicle.

Aqua Villa and Okaloosa Island are conveniently located close to major highways and the Okaloosa Regional Airport. Ft. Walton Beach has public transportation that runs on a regular schedule from the Island to shopping and other local attractions. There is ample shopping close to Okaloosa Island. There are a number day trips you can take to see other sites including Destin, Seaside, and Pensacola, among others.

There is any number of golf courses at your disposal. If you like to fish, there are several fishing charter locations for Gulf excursions, inter-coastal and fresh water fishing. Other recreational activities include kayaking, snorkeling with dolphins, parasailing, surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, sailing, boating, mini-golf, and beachcombing, just to name a few.

If you just want to relax, enjoy the pool area or take our umbrella and chairs to the beach (you'll find them in your unit). Aqua Villa is right on the beach where the action and relaxation meet in the most beautiful way. Come see why this is one of the nicest places you will ever find. Even if you only come once, you will always remember the time you spent in this front-row seat to paradise.

PET POLICY: While we are pet friendly, note that all dogs must be under 20 lbs. Additionally, dogs must be taken off of the condo property to "do their business". Also note that Okaloosa Island beaches do NOT allow dogs. There are two dog parks nearby that you can take your dogs on the beach. We will provide a complete list of Aqua Villa pet rules to you.

About Sarah Atkins

My husband and I have been coming here together since our honeymoon in 1994. My folks owned two units, and we bought this condo from my mom in December 2015.

Sarah Atkins purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sarah Atkins chose Ft Walton Beach

Aqua Villa is smaller - just 24 condos total - and you don't need to walk through a lobby to get to the beach. Just walk right out the front door, down a small set of stairs and you're at the pool! (There is an elevator too for when you have luggage, etc). You'll love staying here.

What makes this condo unique

Since Aqua Villa has just 24 units and an expansive shoreline in front of it, there is always room at the beach for everyone. (The larger condos with a lot of people often have crowded beaches in front of them.)

Had a wonderful time. The views were spectacular. The water was so clear and clean this year. This was our first visit to Okaloosa Island. I am sure we will be returning at some point.

Comfy, clean, affordable condo with a million dollar beach view!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was over Memorial Day week with a tropical storm affecting the area. We expected the worst (due to stormy weather forecast), and it turned out to be an awesome, beautiful week on the beach! There were only a day & a 1/2 of rainy weather, and it was quite spectacular to see a storm roll in, and we enjoyed watching the surfers. I commend the lifeguards and sheriff dept. for doing a great job keeping our area safe!

The condo is clean with new, very comfortable living room furniture to enjoy the incredible views from both balconies. We are a family of four, and had plenty of room to find our own space when needed. We barely left the area, and spend our days & nights enjoying the beautiful (not overly crowded) beach. In the mid-late afternoons, we'd have the beach practically to ourselves. Fabulous!!! Thank you for the cooler. It came in very handy. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were extremely clean. I recommend that the owners update their photos of living room, and master bedroom to show their beautiful & comfortable furnishings. The Tom Thumb convenient store came in very handy for those last minute needed items, and loved that it was so close.

The Aqua Villas are "old florida", and I know the owners said the property was making some improvements soon. While we enjoyed our stay very much, two suggestions for the property (not condo owners). Expedite pool repairs! The pool was closed from Monday until Friday evening which was a long time if you wanted to use it. We came for the beach so it did not affect our stay whatsoever. Although there were double red flag days which meant no swimming in ocean so the pool would've been a nice 2nd option.

I also didn't love that the amenities include a washer and dryer when there was only 1 washer & 1 dryer per floor which was coin operated only. No change machine was on-site either. (you will need $3.25 in quarters for 1 load in washer & dryer) When I did address this with the property mgr., she did promptly arrange for additional bath towels for us which was greatly appreciated but a "heads up" is needed for future renters or list "coin operated" along with washer & dryer. Neither of these were major issues, and definitely beyond the owner's control.

Okaloosa Island is a laid back, "come as you are" beach town that we really enjoyed. Our family is very grateful for a much needed week of beach therapy. Thank you very much for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Stunning ocean views. Perfect for a wonderful vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Aqua Villa 206 for five visits now and plan on many more. The location is perfect to view the gorgeous blues and greens of the gulf waters. This condo is close to shops and restaurants for getting out and checking out the area. We especially enjoy the feeling we immediately get of being at home in the condo. The kitchen is well stocked making cooking comfortable which we enjoy much of the time. The beaches are beautiful and well kept. The best for a relaxing vacation. Thank you Aqua Villa 206 for another great vacation, and thank you Chandler (the umbrella & chair guy) who was friendly, courteous and always available if you needed anything. We enjoyed visiting with him.
