Very nice condo but the cleaning service was not good.

The condo was well furnished, comfortable, with a great view. Easy access to pool, beach and parking. We enjoyed our stay and were generally satisfied with the exception of the cleaning service, for which we paid approximately $ 130.00. For instance, we found an old coffee cup and popsicle wrappers in one of the bedrooms, crumbs in the kitchen behind several of the appliances, and one of the beds was made up without a top sheet. For what we paid, we should have received better service. Read more

Thank you for choosing Southern Vacation Rentals, we do appreciate you as our guest and the feedback you have provided us. We agree that you should not have to deal with the opportunities faced. While we do have each unit cleaned and individually expected, our standards were apparently not met. For this, we do apologize and hope that you will consider Southern for future vacations, as an opportunity to regain your trust as a valued guest.

The service by the staff at Southern Resorts was excellent. We love the new wood flooring in the Condo and the new furniture. The location could not be better as it allows for privacy as well as convenience to shopping and restaurants.
The condo was well supplied and is well maintained and updated when necessary.

We had an excellent stay. It was a much needed vacation for us ladies we have been going through difficult times and we needed the time away and the relaxation, our room was absolutely beauitful and everything we needed was there. I will recommend room 416 to my friends and I will visit again!
Water's Edge was just what we needed!

We had two units for our family through Southern Vacation Rentals at Water's Edge in Ft. Walton, Florida. A 3BR unit (416) and a 1BR/bunk unit up the hallway. We were only a couple of units a part which worked out very nicely for our group. We loved the keyless entry - no keys to keep up with, and the covered parking garage was also an unexpected bonus!
Unit #416 was even nicer in person than the photographs depicted. There were 5 adults and a toddler in our unit and we had plenty of room. Huge master bedroom closet could've been another bedroom it was so big - loved the space to store luggage and feel at home all week! Our granddaughter loved our "swimming pool" jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom. No place has everything you are used to at home, but we had no problem making ourselves comfortable, cooking a few meals at the unit, and simply taking it easy during our stay. We traveled intentionally during the "off season" for a great rate and smaller crowd.
Beach service each day was nice, but hated having to secure a spot each day rather than being assigned the same spot for the entire visit - but we managed. The swimming pool was a wonderfully refreshing spot in the afternoons as the seaweed came in with the tide -- huge pool.
We typically stay in Destin, but have stayed in Ft. Walton before, and now will consider it for future beach trips after such a great stay this year! We were still plenty close to Destin to hit favorite spots like the Back Porch for crab claws, Shakes for a cool dessert, Fuddpuckers for dinner fun, and the marina for a dolphin cruise and a deep sea fishing outing.
Water's Edge is a great property with easy access to the beach, and centrally located to shops, restaurants, family fun, or wonderful to just stay put enjoying the sun, sand, and surf! We sure enjoyed our time there!!

This was a wonderful place to stay. The pictures online were true to the condo. It was absolutely beautiful. We have been to some where the pictures online looked great, but when you get to the condo, it's not near as nice as the pictures. My husband, two sons, (21 and 17) and myself had a blast. There was plenty of room for all of us. We all had our privacy when needed and a great place to come together and just enjoy our time away from the everyday chores. The condo was very clean when we arrived due to an excellent cleaning staff. My favorite room was the master bedroom. The view from the room and access to the balcony was amazing. The closets and bathrooms are very spacious. The pool area is large, and we never had any problems finding chairs. The staff at Southern Vacations gave superior service. Ft. Walton Beach is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this location to anyone. I know we will be back next year. We have been to Panama City Beach and Gulf Shores, but I think I have found my new beach destination. Destin is just over the bridge and is equally amazing. The people we encountered were extremely nice and helpful when recommended places to eat, etc. I would recommend I restaurant a local told us about called Sea Land. The food is amazing and the service outstanding. I could go on and on. So, I guess to sum it all up, I give a high recommendation for this location. If you go, I hope you enjoy it as much as our family did. See you next year Ft. Walton Beach. :)))

I highly recommend this condo! Decorated beautifully with new wood floors and great furniture. We didn't have any problems and will definitely return to #416.
Love this unit!

We have stayed in this unit for many years. The carpet was in rough shape (dirty, stained) but it was being replaced after we left. It is very comfortable and has a well stocked kitchen. We will definately stay in this unit again. Read more

Beautiful Condo - Beautiful Beach - Very Clean
Left on 08/31/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | LBryanWM
Our trip was a success!! Only issues I had with condo was the blind on the balcony door was broke - as in pulled out of the wall. I called the rental comp immediatly - so that we would not be blamed for it mostly! They knew of the problem but they had to order a new rod - so that takes time. It really was not a big deal. It was in the den and no one was sleeping in there. The kitchen didn't have alot of supplies but we made do. End tables in den were stained from when someone spilled something and it sat there for a week. Not much can be done but replace. :/ Overall - it was great! Very clean, beautifully decorated and clean secure complex.
Another great visit to Fort Walton

Well it was another great time in Fort Walton. The water was a bit crummy with seaweed/algae but the beautiful white sand is still to die for. Our room was very nice and accomidated our 7 very well. The master suite was amazing! My only mark down was the carpet. It looked dirty in the traffic areas. No doubt its the wet and sand along with a condo that sleeps 8 = a lot of traffic. Everything else...awesome. This was our 2nd trip to Waters Edge...not the last.
great location, needs furnuture

Room was ready and clean upon arrival. All appliances, AC, washer-dryer, everything worked as it should. My only complaint is some of the furniture. First The couch. They have gotten plenty of use out of this couch and love seat over the years, but it is worn out, nasty and should be replaced. Also the mattress in the master bedroom, it offers no back support and is like trying to sleep in a hammock. I ended up sleeping on the floor. My wife stuck with the bed but she suffered for it and never had a good nights sleep. Around 3am every morning she was just hoping morning would hurry and arrive and end her suffering. We probably wont stay in this unit again unless mattress is replaced.

This is our second year in this same room and it was just as wonderful this time as last year! Has everything you need, clean, comfortable! The pool here is also great. We always feel safe here at Water's Edge too! The beach staff with the chairs are always friendly and the staff here at Water's Edge is also very friendly.
A perfect vacation spot!

We stayed on Okaloosa Island in the spring of 2008 and liked the area. We were coming down for a couples of weddings in this same area and found Waters Edge on the internet. Our family, my husband, myself, two sons, our oldest a firefighter, his wife and two small children and our youngest was able to return to the states on military leave, were able to enjoy a very relaxing and fun family vacation. The weather was great and the housing was beautiful and efficient. The location was centralized for restaurants, shopping and activities and really hated to leave. We'll definitely look into returning.

The location was ideal. The convenience of beach and pool access was exactly what we had hoped for! The pool was very clean and a real pleasure to use. The beach was perfect. The beach service was great.
The unit was clean and true to the pictures. There was plenty of room for our party of six. The kitchen was well equipped. There were more than enough bath towels. The view from our balcony was excellent. We saw dophins everyday! We were also able to see a manatee while we were kayaking!
The service from Southern Resorts was very friendly and expedient while we were there. We did have problems during our stay. Some were taken care of immediately and others the owners needed to be contacted. Some of the issues were previously mentioned in reviews prior to our visit. Our ONLY complaint is that they were not resolved before we arrived and proper restitution was not offered considering the situation.
There are restaurants close by as well as a Publix and beach stores. We enjoyed out walk down the fishing pier and actually saw some fish. If you are looking for more activities, go to Destin (less than 10 miles away).
All things considered, our family had a wonderful vacation and WOULD like to return for another visit to this property.
We would go back.

We have been coming down to Watersedge for five years now. We have stayed in numerous units and this one was a bit of a let down. The washing maching ruined some clothes. The King sized bed in the master bedroom squeaked. The remote control for the living room had the right three buttons not working and the DVD player was pathetic. The VHS in the bedroom makes no sense, you do realize that you can't rent VHS anymore.
The view at the watersedge is still priceless so it made the flaws tolerable, but we will not be staying in that unit again, Thanks. Read more

Our 3rd visit to the same Condo would not stay anywhere else! Even though it's larger than we need for 3 we really enjoy the condo and location.
The view, the water, the pool and the family atmosphere makes it a pleasant visit. We also feel secure from regular riff raff and rowdy beer drinkers like the the bunch next door at the holiday Inn.
Hope ya'll enjoy your stay it's worth it!
Great place!!! :-)
