We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Water's Edge. Everything was exactly as it was described. The condo was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We had a wonderful view of the pool and the beach.It was nice knowing that we had a place to sit and an umbrella at the beach. The beach attendant was very nice. We will definitely recommend Southern Vacation Rentals.

We always stay at Waters Edge- Best pool and the beach service is always great. This condo needs a couple updates but other than that is was perfect. The owner needs to update both Tv's and remove carpet from bedroom. Need bedding would also be nice.

We have stayed at the condo before, and always enjoyed it...this condo was very clean, and had all the amenities we needed...great kitchen set up...the couch was sunken, but clean..needs a piece of plywood under the cushions to bring it level!

Not up to Par
Left on 08/10/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | M Preaus
I would like to start by saying that the owner & SVR were very polite. The balcony view was great! However, when we walked in the door, we noticed that the unit was not up to par with what we have experienced on our last 5 yrs of family beach vacations in the area. I am not a neat freak by any means, but the bathroom drawers/shelves/toilet/counter had hair everywhere: long, black hair. The bed linens & kitchen ware were clean. When we got in the condo, I took off my sandals to unpack & the bottom of my feet were instantly covered in sand. I expect some sand since it is the beach but nothing to this magnitude! The couch, which is different than the one pictured, also had sand, dried food & crumbs all over it. The striped chair is covered in stains. To feel comfortable, we ended up covering both with sheets so we could sit. I am certain the owners do not visit on a regular basis because if they did, I don't think there would be as many problems. I feel that it is the cleaning service who is lacking. Read more

The unit could receive a better cleaning, also the furniture could use some cleaning, somewhat disappointed.Some traces of mold or mildew in corner of bathroom wall where it meets the tub.
This unit was just OK- would not rent again.

The unit was not bad enough to send complaints because we are not complaining people unless it is really bad. Having said this--- the master bathroom shower had hair in it and the door wouldnt close properly. The sofa - which is not the one in the picture- was lumpy and uncomfortable. The kitchen sink sprayer leaked continuously. The bed made noise every time you sat on it or got off of it so it made noise all night. The bed had a mattress cover with plastic lining which made it hot so we took it off. The unit was 2nd floor directly above the heated pool- so in the evening when we would like to enjoy sitting in the unit with the door open or on the balcony to relax we were disturbed by the noise of kids playing. Had I been told how close the pool was to the unit I would never have agreed to this unit.
I will not rent a unit from your company again because we were not happy that for a week rental, we had to provide our own toilet paper, paper towels,trash bags, coffee filters and other items that are provided by individual owners. Read more

Wonderful week in Ft. Walton Beach!!!

The condo was nice. It had a great view and was clean. Weather was a little hotter this year, but we still had a great time.
We had stayed at Water's Edge about five times. We love the building and the pool. It is large and there are plenty of chairs.
Least favorite rental ever
Left on 08/31/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | momto2
To start off the place was not very clean. There was sand in the hallway, few spots of blood on the living room floor, pair of running tights under hall bunk. The sofa in the living room was very uncomfortable, especially when pulled out for a bed. When sitting on the left end of the couch you feel like you're rolling to the center, it was terrible. Tv's are very much in need of an update. The one in the living room gets a high pitch squeal every so often and has to be bumped to get it to quit, only to start back up again. Whenever the lower bunk was made the top flat sheet was folded in half lengthwise, therefore it was at least four inches shy of reaching either of the sides. Somebody just didn't want to have to tuck it in all the way. The bedding had to be stripped to make it right. We have stayed at Water's Edge four times now and I would have to say this was our worst experience thus far. We love the complex and location. But this unit just didn't meet our expectations of what we've had in the past. Needless to say, we were very disappointed.
Relaxing time away

We had a great time. The weather was wonderful all week. We arrived earlier than expected so I call the customer service number and the lady reset our key pay code so we could go ahead and check in a couple of hours early. That was a great help. The condo was very clean and decor was very pleasant. It was nice having a washer / dryer so we didn't bring any dirty clothes home and had fresh beach towels every day. The location is very good as well. The only complaint is the June grass the tide brought in but, no one can change that except mother nature. It wasn't enough to keep us from enjoying the beautiful ocean.

The room was great. The beach was awful. It had seaweed built up and was terrible. We had to use the public beach all week and the smell was horrific. I just wish we could have used the beach and the smell wasn't there all week. It was a very expensive vacation and it was a bad experience because of the beach conditions.

The condo was very nice and clean. We did enjoy staying there, although our only complaints are that the master bedroom seemed to get a little too warm. We had the air on 70 and still couldn't get it cool in back without freezing in the living room. Also, the furniture and bedspreads are getting a little worn and could use some updating. Overall nice experience. Thanks

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the unit 207 and our stay at Water's Edge. We had everything that you could ask for and the condo was very comfortable and "home like". I would recommend this condo to anyone. The only disadvantage to the condo is that there are only two passages over from the parking lot and we had to ride the elevator up to the third floor every time that we left and vice versa, but this is something that could be overlooked. Had a great and restful time. We will be returning next year!
Water's Edge is a great place to stay.

We have stayed at Water's Edge for the past four years and love it everytime. The condo is easy access to the beach, the pool is good-sized for kids to enjoy, and it's very family friendly.

This is the best place to stay in Ft. Walton Beach. If your looking for a condo on the beach I would recommend this property. The condo is great, pool is wonderful, and the beach service was excellent. The kids really enjoyed themselves, never had a dull moment.

We love Waters Edge, it has beautiful pools, grounds, parking lot is always clean. Convenient to golf, theatre, movies restaurants, a great place to vacation. I am not impressed with the unit #207. It is tired, needs some updating. Appliances, stove in particular, is a hazzard because of the burners. The bed sofa and chair need to be replaced. Drapes need cleaning. When I first rented that unit (it was a few years ago) but it was perfect. I realize times are tough for all of us, but a little maintenence each year would really help homeowner and the people renting. I also realise people renting for a week or so don't care about the property. We are snowbirds and for 3 months we use the condo just like we would our home in Canada. I wash the floors every week, obviously they are never cleaned by the cleaners as there was no mop.(till I picked one up)
I am sorry not to be going back to that unit as if it was given some TLC it would be wonderful again.
