About the property

2 bedroom/2 bathroom/Bunk room/Fold-out couch/Oceanfront/Steps to beach


This is one of the nicest and updated condo at Water Edge and our FIVE star reviews agree!

We provide DOUBLE the beach service with FOUR chairs and TWO umbrellas ($210 value), saving you time and money to maximize your vacation fun. Our condo has updated furnishings throughout with high quality sheets, towels and pillows for your comfort! All linens are professionally laundered and beach towels are provided for your use as well.

Our condo is located on the 2nd floor and has beautiful views of the beach right from your balcony! You'll enjoy the view with four specially ordered Dolphin Watch chairs from your private balcony. Vacationing in our condo will feel like your home away from home.

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.

Plenty of amenities for the kids including pools (one heated!), grassy play areas, sand and beach and game room. There is a fitness room is onsite.This condo includes beach service with four chairs and two umbrellas daily on the beach for your enjoyment. You can reserve additional chairs and umbrellas with the beach service if needed.

Our unit is 3 bedroom 2 bath including a separate bunk room. The hallways are extra wide and the master bath has a large walk-in shower as well as garden tub. HD TVs are in all bedrooms and the balcony has great views of both the gulf and 5000 square foot pool. This is a second floor unit very close to the elevator and stairs so your walk to the beach is a short one. The complex has two swimming pools, one the largest on Okaloosa Island. 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.

Come visit us at Water's Edge 205, we promise you will return often. Good dates available and the best location on Okaloosa Island. See calendar below.

OUR CONDO RATES BELOW INCLUDE all amenities, wireless internet, beach service chairs and umbrellas and do not include taxes (12%) or cleaning fee ($165) or fees from this site.

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!

Why Melissa Floyd chose Florida Main North West

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!

We loved our trip this year. Great Job Mellisa

Nice beach view

  • 4 of 5

We arrived early, and Melissa was very accommodating and provided us an early check in code. (We arrived at 1:00pm). Upon arrival the condo had very modern updating, and was very clean. The large wooden table did however have some sticky residue on it, that would not come off. The condo was overall very nice, but the 3rd bedroom with the bunks was a lot smaller that I had imagined. It got very warm in there at night, even though there is an oscillating fan mounted on the wall. The washing machine was also a pain. When it was on final spin, it was terribly loud. Loud enough that you didn't wash clothes at night when kids were sleeping. On the 3rd day I received a text from the owner, saying that she gets alerts when the temperature goes below 70 degrees. i had the thermostat on 68 degrees, because my kids were burning up in there room. Melissa was very nice about it, but I felt it should probably not been sent, felt scolded in a way. Especially, when it is posted all over the condo to keep the temp No lower that 68 degrees. I realize those were a few negative things, but they needed to be told. The beach service was great, 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas set up every day!! Plenty of utensils, pots, pans, etc. Overall, the condo suited our families just fine. Waters edge on the other hand was a different story. The elevator was terribly slow, some days it did not work at all, thank goodness we were only on the 2nd floor, and stairs were close. Also, at night there were numerous outdoor lights burnt out, espicially by the elevators. This is very dangerous, and scary especially for elderly people. I can't remember how many other's I talked too about this. I finally went to management in the office and reported it middle of the week, and it finally got fixed. The parking spots are too narrow, and large concrete pillars take up half the spots. So overall, I probably wouldn't stay here again. Not because of Melissa or the condo itself, but because of waters edge poor property management. Also, traffic is so bad going to destin, I would prefer to stay further in Destin.

Owner's Response: Danny, Thank you for staying with us. It is our goal to provide a 5 star experience for our guests and I’m sorry you felt that our condo was not worthy of a 5 star rating. To any future guests reading Danny’s review, please let me know if there is anything not up to your expectations during your stay. If I know during your stay, I can work to resolve any issues. Upon reading this review, I have contacted our management company and they have made sure all the light bulbs are working outside the condo. The elevator issue is being addressed as well. We have also replaced the washer and dryer so our guests will not be inconvenienced at all. I go out of my way to ensure our condo is the best at Waters Edge. Please don’t just take my word for it, just read all the other 5 star reviews posted. If you’re looking for a less crowded condo property than you would find in Destin, steps to the beach with a great pool and beach view right from your windows, then Waters Edge 205 is perfect for you. I look forward to providing you a 5 star experience during your stay! Melissa

Beautiful Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to Florida's Beaches every year for the last 7 years, and this condo is one of the best condo's we have stayed in. The pictures of this condo is just a small sample of how beautiful this condo really is. It was also very clean and is stocked with everything you need, even beach towels. Our week was perfect and would definitely stay here again.

I'll let our cleaner know her work was appreciated too! We would love for you to be our guests again! Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Best, Melissa
