Okaloosa Island is a great place to vacation with your family. Enjoy the huge pool and lots of play areas around the condo and the beach. We are beachfront with short walk to the beach. Few places are blessed with a more spectacular setting than Waters Edge on Okaloosa Island, with direct Gulf-front views of the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

And great grounds for your leisure activities. You'll find that Waters Edge is a well kept property and one of the very best Okaloosa Island has to offer.

The beaches are beautiful and wide, much wider than the Destin beaches. Okaloosa Island is located in close proximity to Fort Walton Beach restaurants such as AJ's, Floyd's and Old Bay Steamer, and attractions such as Florida Gulfarium, the Ft. Walton Pier, the Boardwalk and only 3 miles from Destin. This is a family-friendly location and is much less crowded than other beaches on the Island.

About Melissa Floyd

We are a very active family of five and enjoy traveling. Over the years, some of our favorite memories have been made at the beach. The sandy white beaches and the clear blue water make this area of the Gulf Coast one of the prettiest in Florida. We fell in love Okaloosa Island when we were looking for a beach place of our own. It is a perfect location for families and private enough for a romantic getaway too. There is nothing like sitting on our balcony in the morning watching the dolphins play in the water, feeling the soft breeze off the ocean, hearing the crashing waves and smelling the salt water air while enjoying a cup of coffee. We would love to be there all year round, but instead we want to open our home for our guests to relax and have fun as well. We hope you'll enjoy our little slice of heaven for your vacation this year and for many years to come!

Melissa Floyd purchased this condo in 2015

Why Melissa Floyd chose Fort Walton Beach

Waters Edge is very well maintained and convenient to lots of restaurants and shopping, but a lot less crowded than other condos on the Island. And the amazing beach view you can enjoy through floor to ceiling windows or out on your private balcony make our condo stand a part. You'll fall in love with our condo, just like we have!

What makes this condo unique

The views are amazing and well within your reach with our condo's affordable rates.

You'll find our condo to be one of the best at Waters Edge with updated furnishings and amazing Gulf front views to enjoy while sitting on one of our four specially ordered tall "dolphin watch" chairs on the balcony.

Additionally, we offer an upgraded beach service, which includes 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas. That's double what other owners offer their guests, saving you time and money so you can focus on relaxing! With our professional linen service and superior cleaners, you'll have peace of mind knowing that we have made the cleanliness of our condo a priority.

We also provide simple amenities like liquid hand soap at all the sinks, bath bar soap, dishwasher detergent, and washing machine detergent as well as starter rolls of paper towels and toilet paper. Our goal is for you to relax and not have to worry about the small stuff while on vacation!

Once you get here, you won't want to leave!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 had plenty of room during our stay. There were several water toys and household supplies I didn't need any that I brought from home. We used the 4 beach chairs provided by the condo service daily. The deck furniture was also a favorite of ours. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful Beach views from this great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, one of the most enjoyable Beach trip stays in many years. The condo is exactly as depicted in the photos and descriptions. Beautiful facility and well maintained! Melissa (the owner) was very attentive and checked in via text just the right amount of frequency (i.e. the start and end of our stay) and was a pleasure to do business with. She also processed the deposit refund very quickly after our stay, so no worries there either. I highly recommend!!!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to the Ft. Walton/Destin area my entire life. We have stayed in many condos, and this one has become my family's favorite. We had four adults and two toddlers in our group. Space was not an issue, even with all the stuff we have to bring for the kids. I also like that the bunk bedroom was an actual bedroom and not a hallway bunk area. This allowed the kids to go to sleep at a decent time and we could stay up in the living area without worry of waking them up. The upgraded finishes and furniture in the condo feel like something that would be in a higher priced unit. Also having the 4 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas as an included beach service was great. It really reduced the amount of stuff we had to carry to the beach. The grounds were kept up very nicely. we really enjoyed the unit and plan on staying again next year!

We'll be making even more improvements in the condo for our guests to enjoy. Melissa

Great views and great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everyone who has booked a family vacation online knows the feeling of holding your breath when you arrive as you hope it lives up to how it was advertised. This arrival was extra nerve wracking because from the street, Waters Edge lacks any sort of charm or curb appeal. After lugging our baggage to the front door, we anxiously turned the handle...and were immediately taken with the view. You see, no matter how lackluster this condo appears from the street side, we only booked it for its magnificent ocean view. And boy did it deliver. This condo is perfectly situated in the building to provide a fantastic view and yet privacy from the crowds at the pool or beach. If it was even one door down, you would find yourself sharing your evening cocktail or morning coffee with several other people. Instead, you are have perfectly placed palm trees framing up a picturesque view of the beach.

There are other benefits, sure--the condo was immaculately cleaned (at least until my kids and their sandy feet arrived), the kitchen well appointed, the decor relatively up to date and not cheesy beach chic like so many beach rentals, the owner is quick and responsive to any issues, it's conveniently located near many restaurants and entertainment but without the traffic of being on the main drag. But, mostly, you can rest assured that this condo delivers as promised. There are no misleading pictures here--in fact, they don't really even do the unit true justice. You'll just have to see it yourself.

There were some oddities and minor complaints, to be sure. The mattresses are not nearly as comfortable as ours back home. The master bedroom blinds don't completely block the morning light. The elevator is impossibly slow. But, again, minor concerns that didn't really impact our stay. My family of four greatly enjoyed our trip. If we are back in the area for vacation, we will be booking this again.

Owner's Response: Danielle, Thanks for your very thorough and honest review. I agree, the Waters Edge building is very unassuming from the street. We definitely choose this condo based on the amazing views and private balcony. I'm glad it exceeded your expectations! Thanks for the feedback on the master bedroom blinds and the mattresses. We have them on our list to update for 2017. We purchased this condo mid 2015 and have slowly been making it our own. We love to hear how to improve things. I hope you'll come back and stay with us again. Melissa
