I stayed at 2 different condos in Ft. Walton Beach and have to say SVR (not Stevie Ray Vaughn) made the experience all the more worthwhile. The rooms are as described if not better, the service is impeccable, staff always a pleasure to deal with and whatever problems might arise you can feel safe and secure in knowing they will be attended to by respectful and professional staff. The facilities and grounds are kept immaculate and your privacy guaranteed,
deep cleaning needed
Left on 09/20/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Karen
the view is great, pool is great. the place needs a deep cleaning- baseboards washed, thorough dusting top to bottom. there were crumbs on the couch when we arrived, bathrooms marginal. couch & chair need replacing. Couch broken down and cushions shot, no fabric at all on the arms of the chair, foam exposed. Bed was good however! Read more

Nice location on the island close to most eating places.Breakfast available next door in Holiday Inn. Location of room was near loading/off loading ramps. 95% shaded all the time. Right above the pools.
Furniture a little holely but functional. Southern Vacations was very helpful & friendly.

The condo was very nice. It had a beautiful view, it was clean and we had no problems. It might be nice to provide a box of kleenex or a roll of paper towels to have before I can get to the store but I do appreciate the laundry, dish and bath soaps. I also wish the movie rental place was a little cheaper ($2.00-$3.00). Five dollars seemed high especially since another rental company I used previously had free rentals.
We can't wait to return!

We had such a good family vacation! Check-in was easy, the unit was clean and comfortable and we loved how close we could park to our room. Great balcony view of the pool and beach. The only thing our room didn't have is a bottle opener - but my husband had his knife. Thanks for everything!
Fun in fort Walton

view was great and room was comfortable. getting a code for room entry with your reservation vs. having to check in is a major advantage.
No Beach in Iowa
We had a wonderful time...Again

We recently stayed at Watersedge Resort #413. We have stayed before but in a differnt room. Room 413 was excellent! Great view of the beach and pool and we had no issues regarding the room. It was very clean and well decorated...Washer and dryer are a big plus for our family. The beach service was excellent as it was 2 years ago. The boys were very helpful and fun to talk with..Great guys! I would definatly stay in this room again.

When calling and placing the reservation, the lady at Southern Resorts was very helpful and friendly. I did have to call the week of though and ask for my verification information because it wasn't sent like they told me it would be. The view was wonderful from the living room and we were right on the beach which was great. And we had complimentary beach service which was also great. The condo itself could have been cleaned better before our arrival though. The normal check in is 4:00 unless you request an early one of 1:00. Overall though we had a great experience. Read more

Nice Family Condo
Left on 03/30/2011 for a stay in March 2011 | Suzannah
We enjoyed our stay at the Water's Edge Resort. Parking was very convenient and you were very close to the beach. This unit was the perfect size for me, my husband and out 2 boys. The decor was nice; however, some of the rugs seem warn and need replacing / professional cleaning. It was nice having a small washer/dryer in the condo. One of the pools was heated, which was great for this time of year. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and will be coming back!
May 2010 for two
Left on 06/04/2010 for a stay in May 2010 | Sam H
This condo was in a great location, and had everything needed to enjoy our stay. My wife and I walked away feeling like we got a good deal. Covered parking, a fitness area, free internet access, and instant beach access were big pluses. The pool was great. It is split into two pools, and the smaller of the two is heated. The view off the balcony was fantastic and calming. We spent every evening with the sliding door open listening to the waves and enjoying the view sitting on the balcony.
We vacationed in early May, and the temps were in the low 80's. We also lucked out in that the season wasn't in full swing, so there was never a crowd. Navigating the area was so easy, that even I never got lost. There is great shopping and a lot of restaurants in Destin, but staying in Okalossa and making the short drive is worth avoiding the heavier traffic and crowds of Destin.
The only low ratings I will give concern carpet cleanliness, and the beach service. The carpet and rugs needed shampooing, as they were soiled and showed heavy traffic. I can understand how they could get dirty quickly from the constant visitors returning from the beach, but feel more frequent deep cleanings are needed.
The beach service was lacking in that we never felt like we could just go and sit on the chairs under the umbrellas. The workers only put them out upon request, but were rarely available. they would disappear to enjoy their personal activities to include flirting with the hot chicks, and surfing. We waited on the balcony till we spotted one, and made a mad dash to catch them. They were always nice and quick to set us up, it was just a matter of finding one. After thinking about this, I should have thought to tip, as I am sure the service would have been much better.
Great view, but....

The room was doable but needs upgrades; bathrooms and furniture.
The instructions received said the room was keyed so we waited by the lockbox at Southern Resorts and there were never any keys for our room. After waiting a little while we called and were told the room was keyless and given the code. Just double check the instructions given.
The view was great and the beach was nice and kept up. The pools were also very nice.
Wonderful, relaxing vacation 2009!!
Left on 09/26/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | Country Girl
We had a wonderful stay. The home was perfect for 2 people, more and we would have been cramped as far as space. But, it was very nice. Everything we needed was there. We were steps from the beach, and right over the pool! Got beach chairs and umbrella as amenities also--never had that anywhere ever before!
We LOVED the fact that our room had a key code instead of a key or card. Didn't have to keep up with anything at the beach!!! That was the absolute best part!!!
The whole area was always very clean, and there was someone who came by straightening up chairs at the pool or pick up garbage so there wasn't any messes left around. Very pretty! The staff that we did see was very friendly.
We would stay here again. Very happy with our choice. Read more

We had a wonderful time. The condo was clean, and really nice. We actually got down there a few hours early and were lucky enough to be able to check in early. We would absolutely return.
Condo had issues....loved the island
Left on 08/19/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | barbwilliams
We arrived at Waters Edge #413 on Sat Aug 8th. At first glance the condo was beautiful, the pool was wonderful and the beach was spectacular! However, while unpacking, we detected a mildew odor in the condo. I called maintenance and they sent Jay to investigate. He did a very thorough job trying to determine the smell but could not find where it was coming from. He put bleach in the drains and sprayed air freshener. That worked for several hours but the odor returned. Called maintenance again and was told that Jay's report said that the smell came from our garbage can. Ridiculous. Hadn't even been there 24 hours. Sent Nicki out. Again, very thorough trying to determine odor but could find nothing. However, her report stated that it was cantaloupe rinds in the garbage disposal. Funny, since my WHOLE cantaloupe was sitting on the counter not even cut up yet. Finally, on Wednesday,an HVAC man came and immediately said it was a mildew odor. He found water spots around the vent in the hall bath from a leak. He didn't know if it is still leaking or has been fixed. He told us to keep the balcony door opened to air out the unit. Between that and burning candles it was the only way we could handle being in the condo. No one ever came back to fix the problem. We paid a lot of money for a not so pleasant stay in that unit. The only other issue that we had was the 10:00 curfew at the pool. Way too early. We were a party of 51 with 10 condos rented. Because of the curfew and our condo issue we have decided not to return to Waters Edge. We all loved the area and will stay on Okaloosa island again but at a different resort. I was given another management company to book through so I will be giving them a try for next years vacation. Thanks Barb Williams

Beautiful facility on a beautiful beach!

The location is great - away from the crowds at Destin and SanDestin. The condo was clean and adequately supplied. It is a perfect size for a couple or family with 2 children. We had a wonderful time. We especially like the convenience of a parking garage when it is really hot or rains. We hope to come again.
A nice, enjoyable vacation experience!

I loved that there was not a "check-in/out" process. It was a keyless entry, with the code e-mailed to me. We were able to go directly to our room & enter without the hassle of locating an office! I will ask for early check-in next time though. We did have to waste a little time before our 4pm check-in.
The condo was beautiful & clean. I chose it partially because of it's modern decoration.
The location was good. Centrally located to most everything!
Overall it was a great place to stay, great company to rent from.
Will use Southern Resorts again!
Great family vacation!

This Condo was perfect for my family of 5. My 6 and 7 year old loved sleeping on the bunkbeds in the hallway! The pool was wonderful and the beach was easy to get to. Everything is such a close drive too. The Gulfariam, shops and restaurants in Destin. I hope to stay there again!
