Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

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: 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.

About Sarah Atkins

My husband and I have been coming here together since our honeymoon in 1994 We bought this condo from my mom in December 2015

Sarah Atkins purchased this condo in 2016

Why Sarah Atkins chose Fort 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.

Great view. Decent for what you pay.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed the week of 3/18/17. This was our first stay in the pan handle. We knew it would be cool for this time of year. I thought I booked a week in a facility with a heated pool. I apparently overlooked the pool is NOT heated. Manual door key entry was a pain to secure our things each time we left. A keyless entry pad would be a nice upgrade. The kitchen was fully stocked and great! Living area and bar stools are not comfortable. The fabric on the furniture looked worn. Likely from all the sand. The condo had a broom but a swifter wet jet or something to give a quick wet mop would have been nice. There was an old school mop in the closet but I was on vacation too ya know. Our feet were black after a few hours walking bare foot on the floors. Balcony has spectacular views and we did sight a dolphin. Super cool. Master bed was great. Lots of extra pillows and blankets. The full size bed in the second room was squeaky but fine for the pre-teens. TVs were flat screens and mounted on the walls. All were great but I thought I was going to take an eye out in the master bedroom. Had to be cautious of the height level. The bathrooms were clean. Totally could use some exhaust fans. There was no circulation after a shower or taco night. ; ) The bath tub floors were super slick so the towel bars came in handy. Master Bedroom carpet could be cleaner. The sand really must do a number on the floors to maintain. Beach toys and chairs that came with the condo were great. We even added a few larger buckets and a wake board that hopefully stays. All in all a great week. We would book it again. But in warmer months. The area restaurants and grocery stores are over priced. But we expected that. Definitely worth the short trip to Destin to rent a boat and check out crab Island. This was by far our favorite part of the trip. 2nd fave....opening the door with the beach less than 2 minutes at your feet.

Owner's Response: Hi Ladoshia - Thank you very much for your input. John and I will be there in a month and will definitely be tending to these suggestions. The living room furniture is scheduled for replacement yet this spring. You are absolutely correct that the sand and salt do a lot of damage to everything - and very quickly. We will hire "deep cleans" of all of the flooring as soon as we have a vacancy, and I will definitely add a Swifter, that is a great suggestion. Thanks again for your comments and I hope that you can return to our condo again in the years ahead. Sarah, Owner

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Your condo was great. The condo was very clean and had wonderful views of the gulf. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals. We prefer to eat in and watch the sunset rather than eating out. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Also, thank Janet. She was wonderful in helping me with any questions we had.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Betsy! We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation. I too like making food at "home" when at the condo - who would want to leave that view!?!?! That is why I stock the kitchen with great pots/pans/equipment to make a great meal. I will share your comments with Janet, she does a great job at coordinating visits and helping our guests once the reservation has been made. Thanks again and I hope you consider coming back again for a future vacation. Sincerely, Sarah

A lovely change for Thanksgiving week

  • 5 of 5

Spent Thanksgiving week here and had the most relaxing time ever. The kitchen was one of the most well stocked kitchens I have ever been in, and we did not lack a thing that we needed to make a whole Thanksgiving dinner. This unit on the corner is much better than the other units that do not have the private balcony. The view was beautiful and all encompassing. It was nice to be able to bring my dog. She is 18 and does not do well boarded. I think this is the only complex that accepts dogs. She also loved the sun on the tile and the balcony sun. The 2 kids boogie boarded to their heart's content, even though it was November. Easy walk to Anglers- my favorite sports bar/hangout. (Sunday brunch with endless mimosas, 30 cent oyster night, towers of beer in the sports bar). Tom Thumb convenience store right there if you need any quick items......Walking the beach endlessly in both directions on that beautiful white quartz sand, clearest water.....Will definitely return. This place was perfect for our needs.

Owner's Response: Hello Lisa - We are so happy that you enjoyed your week and the amenities at Aqua Villa #206. I have made the Thanksgiving meal there myself, and I appreciate having all the kitchen appliances and gadgets that I may want while cooking on vacation. I like to supply our unit with all the comforts that I appreciate, and that seems to please our guests as well. We look forward to your future visits. Sarah

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this condo. It is perfect for us. It's a relatively small complex and the unit is on the 2nd floor on the end. Beautiful views both east and west. The unit is very nicely appointed with flat screen tv's in both bedrooms plus the living room (although we don't watch tv on vacation!) A new carpet in the bedrooms had just been installed and the kitchen was very well appointed, even a bread maker! Furnishings are very comfortable and there's sleeping space for 6 or 7 utilizing the sofa bed. When we got to the condo their was a minor mix up about the door key but the owner took care of the problem within 10 minutes; great service!

The only (slight) disappointment was that the Jacuzzi in the master bath did not work. Perhaps we just couldn't figure out the controls.

If you want a beautiful location, white sand beaches, a great swimming pool and location, location, location, this is the place for you. We're already planning our next stay in the fall.
