About the property

3 Bedroom / 3 Bathroom penthouse unit directly on the beach

Beautiful Okaloosa Island is a great place to vacation with your family and friends. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy peace and quiet, but close enough to just hop in the car and head out for some good food, great shopping and fun nightlife!! Close to the Gulfarium, Wild Willie's Adventure Zone, Destin’s Harbor Walk Village, The Big Kahuna water park, The Track where you can play putt putt or drive go karts & other great attractions in Destin and Ft. Walton.

Our Penthouse Unit is located on the 6th floor. Ocean Front (directly on the beach) with amazing views of the Gulf. Completely redecorated in August 2014 with brand new furniture, full size (large capacity) washer and dryer off the kitchen, updated decor, curtains, comforters and fresh paint in all rooms. Sip your morning coffee or enjoy a cocktail on our large balcony, which can be accessed from the Master Bedroom and Living Room. Our fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel appliances and everything you’ll need to prepare meals. Each bedroom has a King Size Bed with plenty of room to spare. We also have a queen sleeper sofa and have provided a 4" memory foam mattress topper that you'll find in the master bedroom closet. We wanted to ensure a good nights sleep for everyone!!

Water’s Edge has 2 swimming pools, one of which is heated, a workout room, and DVD rentals. The elevator is located right outside our unit which makes unpacking the car a lot easier.

There is a sidewalk adjacent to the property for you to get in that morning bike ride, jog or just take a walk and enjoy the beauty of Okaloosa Island!

Beach Service Included for each day of your stay (April 1 - October 31).

2 Beach Chairs and 1 Umbrella


TV, cable and DVD player in all bedrooms and Living Room

About Dawn Foust

Our family lives in Georgia and for several years we've spent our Spring Breaks and some summer vacations at Waters Edge. We have other family members who own condos here so we are very familiar with the area and the complex. In 2014 an opportunity to purchase this amazing unit came about so (with no hesitation at all) we jumped on it in hopes to one day retire here. We have 2 adult children who have grown up taking many vacations on Okaloosa Island and we hope to one day bring our future grandchildren here!

Dawn Foust purchased this condo in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sorry for the delayed response but I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed/loved your condo. Very spacious, clean and my wife loved your decorating.

Great time - I hope we can rent this unit in the future again.

4th time at Water's Edge, of all the condos this unit has been our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

The 618 Water's Edge condo was beautifully decorated, very clean, and a quiet corner unit that overlooks the beautiful white beach. It had plenty of room for our family of 10! The complex is always clean, well kept landscape, relaxing large pools, and just steps away from the beach. I always enjoy our stay at Water's Edge and this condo unit made it even better! Thank you Dawn and family for allowing others to stay in your home away from home!

Our family of nine plus a baby had a wonderful week in your condo. There was plenty of room for all of us! The kitchen was better supplied than any we have rented. Especially loved having a pantry to keep the amount of food we required! This condo is beautifully decorated! It was great to be able to park our cars in the shade in the parking garage too. Even the beach attendant was amazing and so helpful!! If all of us go together to the beach again we are definitely coming back to this condo!! Thank you so very much!

We stayed 5/14-5/19/2017 and had a wonderful stay. The condo is beautiful, and well appointed. All the beds were comfortable and bathrooms nicely remodeled. The living room has cable and Netflix's, which is great for relaxing at night. There is also a full size newer washer and dryer for laundry. The 6th floor lends to the best views of the beautiful Emerald Coast. The condos owner, Dawn, was easy to work with and very friendly. The condo pools were spacious and the pool bathrooms were very clean. There are 4 charcoal grills available for use near the pools and they also were well cared for. Parking garage was well lit and maintained. The beach is fabulous, with white sand and it's shallow enough for smaller kids. We were very pleased and will definitely come back to this condo again. Our only complaint was having to come home!!!!

This condo was everything we had hoped. It was modern, clean, spacious, and had a fantastic view of the beach, which was only steps away from our building. I would definitely stay here again--and plan to in a couple years when we return. The owner was responsive and communicative, answering questions promptly, clearly, and with great courtesy. Much appreciated!
