This was our 4th time renting in the Water's Edge complex. Our family really loves staying in Water's Edge and have always had a great experiences renting with Southern Rentals. This time the unit that we usually stay in was booked so we went with unit #118. First problem was the furniture in the living room is not what is shown on the website. The actual furniture was in bad need of updating. The sleeper couch was extremely difficult to pull in and out. Had to literally force it back in. The unit just wasn't as clean as the other units we had stayed in. The website had also promised complimentary 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas on the beach. Beach service stated that this unit only comes with 2 chairs and 1 umbrella. Toilet in master bath backed up twice while we there. The unit did have a plunger so we were able to fix it ourselves.
I will stay at Water's Edge again and I will rent from Southern Resorts, but I won't stay in this unit again. Read more

Condo was perfect for are family,loved the 3 bathrooms.We all liked staying on the end for the little bit of extra privacy.Kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. Was worried about the aircondition after reading other reviews but they got it fixed it worked to good. They could update carpet but it diddnt bother us. We will stay in 118 again
Overall ok, but poor managment!

Overall, our stay at the Water's Edge #118 was great. Although, the house keeping for the room was very poor. The floors/carpet were very dirty. We wore our socks the whole time during our visit. The bathroom tub looked like it had not been cleaned. We purchased cleaner and cleaned it our self. The company that handles the beach set up's on the beach was not very nice. You couldn't sit in your chairs until 9 am, and it was a first come first serve policy. Unless, you paid the beach attendant off. He said "about 5 dollars a day in tip if you want the same seats everyday." So after paying for a beach set, you also had to throw in a ridiculously amount in tip to keep your spot on the beach, that you couldn't sit in until 9 am. The attendant was very rude and unprofessional. Our family has little babies and we needed to be out on the beach early, but could not. What we loved about the unit was we were able to walk right out the door and we were steps from the beach. The end unit was perfect! The parking was great. It is great for families with little kids. We would stay here again, but next time we will bring our know beach chairs and umbrella.
Beach wedding and stay was awesome!!

The room was perfect! We were on the ground floor and loved the access to the beach as well as the pool and grill area! We had a fabulous time! Forgot dishsoap...maybe a small trial size would be helpful but otherwise awesome stay and very quiet since we were at the end of the units. Read more

needed a vacation
Left on 04/11/2012 for a stay in March 2012 | John
trip was easy. We found the place and got in without a hitch. We were on the bottom floor, which was great because we had five kids with us, and were in and out alot. The weather was a little cool so we didn't get to use all the facilities, but they were nice and available. Would go back and would tell people about it.

We have stayed in room 117 at the Waters Edge in Fort Walton Beach (the corner condo near the Gazebo and green space has been so convenient and has met needs) and love the location, however, this condo needs much upgrading. I would suggest tile in the living area. Because it is the ground floor the carpet remains dirty and sandy. The vacuum systems do not clean the rugs. There was a serious mildew problem above the master bedroom shower. The beds were fairly comfortable but had many unusual props under them for additional support. Most of the furniture needs upgrading. Leather couches would be easier to maintain. We love this place so much but will not return until upgrading has been done. We are a total of five families that go there for a week each year. We have small children and cleanliness if a priority. Next summer we will be staying elsewhere. Read more

We enjoyed the family atmosphere of this condo.

My husband and I travelled with our three children, a daughter in law, a son in law and three grandchildren (ages 13, 10 and 5}We did not have to call your office until the morning we checked out because we did not run into any problems. If we had to find something that would have made our stay more enjoyable for the kids, it would have been a bigger arcade room, but they enjoyed the one there.

Overall it was great. Very accessible to beach and pool. Would have liked a hot tub and the dryer didn't dry very well.
The biggest issue was we left a brand new pair of kids shoes that we bought while on there and amazing that when we called...no shoes to be found. Hope someone enjoys them as well as my granddaughter would have.
Waters Edge #118 is the nicest condo that we have rented !

Waters Edge is a great place to vacation with your family. Our experience there was amazing. The atmosphere is wonderful, and the pool is the best on the beach. We enjoy our stay there more and more each time we visit.

Great Layout and Ground floor, End unit but.....
Left on 04/07/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | boatbiz
the entire condo needs updating. There is a considerable amount of carpet in this unit which needs replacing. The couches have tears and stink like urine. The bunk bed mattresses...well, our teenagers wouldn't even sleep on them b/c they were so hard and uncomfortable. I've stayed in nicer places for less money.
My father has trouble getting around so the ground floor was great. Walked out to a nice grassy area with great ocean views. I would stay there again for my father's sake however, if my father doesn't go, I would pick a different unit that is in better condition and has finer furnishings.
Southern resorts was very quick in responding to my complaints on the unit and a few things that needed fixing.
Great Place, Kids loved it

We had a wonderful time at Water's Edge 118.
The condo was clean and fully equipped. The kids enjoyed all the T.V.'s and comfy furniture. We would stay there again on the first floor. We told everyone about it. The pool was always clean and spacious. The yard and gazebo was a plus.
Thanks for a good time in Florida!
Great Family Condo
Left on 07/09/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | ndufrene
We were very impressed with the condo at Water's Edge. Unit 118 was great for us because we had small children and were able to walk back and forth easily from the pool and the beach. The pool is very nice and big and the beach boardwalk is very close and short. The complimentary beach chairs & umbrella were also very nice. There is covered parking very convient to unit also.
The only problem we had was that the blender was broken and the condo above our unit was having a problem and water was leaking into the walls of our unit. It did not interfere with our stay and inconvenience us in any way. Southern Resorts was very professional to deal with and made our stay extremely pleasant!!! Thanks!
Great family resort

The condo was a great place for spring break. We are three generations and the condo met most of our needs. The place was very clean, and checking in went smoothly. Our only gripe is that there were no blankets for any of the beds. It got down into the 30's a couple nights and a blanket would have felt good. Also a couple stick free (teflon) skillets would have been nice.
Overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the view, the short walk to the gulf and easy access to shopping and places of all kinds to eat. Being on the first floor with a lawn right in front was wonderful. We would rent this property again.
We had 2 minor problems with facilities: The A/C stuck "on" a few times, and the washer & dryer were small for 10 people.

This was the perfect place for a family vacation. Two families stayed here and it worked out great. Could use some kitchen utensil and small appliances but other than that it was great. Being on ground level, the kids could come and go to the pool and beach. I will definitely go again! THANK YOU

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at Water's Edge #118. It was so comfortable and very convinient since we had 4 young children with us. The pools are the nicest on Okaloosa Island and so very kid friendly. We spent ourt time relaxing on the beach and playing in the pool. I would definitley recommend Water's Edge to anyone vacationing in Florida. This was our second stay and we'll we definitley be back.
