We have stayed at aqua Villa for years in multiple units. Loved this unit. The privacy and patio area were very nice. Unit was exceptionally clean and comfortable.

The condo (Aqua Villa 101) was a perfect place for my family to vacation for a few days on Ft. Walton Beach. The kitchen had all the amenities necessary to cook whatever we wanted. The condo was clean and fresh looking. The only drawback is it did not provide a blow dryer like most places would so I sent my husband to go and buy one.
Homey comfort, and good for kids.

This unit is comfortable. It is close to the pool and has a small bit of grass that is good for the kids to play on. This isn't the most luxurious unit, but it has everything you need to enjoy the beach. Read more

Nice Beach, Dirty Room
Left on 07/08/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Traveler
This rental could use some updating. Called on our first day and informed them of mildew on all the blinds in the bedrooms and no one ever came out to clean or inspect. No private balcony at any of the rooms at aqua Villa. Enjoyed the beach. Read more

Thank you for choosing Southern Vacation Rentals for your recent stay in Fort Walton Beach. We have read your comments about the bathroom blinds and attempted to clean during your stay but were not allowed into the unit. Since your departure the small amount of mildew found was thoroughly cleaned. We greatly appreciate your stay with us and look forward to another future visit from you.

Loved the room-near the pool and grassy area for kids to play. Upstairs condo noises at night and dogs barking only problems.

Unit is very dated and poorly maintained.
Left on 09/01/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | Disappointed....
The unit needs a major renovation including both bathrooms and new carpeting throughout. The common areas are not maintained very well and the laundry rooms are very dirty with outdated machines. One bedroom faces the parking lot and the otther one faces the stairwell. Window blinds in the living room are broken and the ceiling tiles are stained throughtout the unit.

This unit was the perfect #101. Was on the end and on the ground floor. We did not have anyone on one side of us so it gave us more visibility to beach. Just minutes from Destin if you want to go out on the town.
For Older Folks
Left on 05/25/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Brad
Older property with a decent location.
Pro's-- Great access to Pool. Like 30 feet. Great access to Beach. In 2 minute you are out of your door and sitting at the water. Quiet at least the week I went. Pretty much had the pool to ourselves. Not far from Gulfarium and Crab Trap and Black Pearl.
Cons -- Older property on the verge of feeling not that clean. First floor with people able to walk by your window at all times. No view. Had to keep the blinds shut because of people walking outside all the time. Claims private lawn. No Private Lawn. You just happen to be on a corner where people would have to walk down to your lawn. It's a community lawn. Parking lot didn't feel that safe to me but I could be just spoiled. Nothing happned to my car.
Won't stay here again. I'm probably spoiled staying at newer properties. I missed having a view from my windows so perhaps my mistake for staying here. As you can see, in other reviews people liked it.

Best on the Beach
Left on 05/21/2010 for a stay in May 2010 | 4thegirlsclub
The condo unit's servicing company did a wonderful job. The unit had items that was not expected to have so next time I visit, I will know that I don't have to bring "everything" but the kitchen sink so to speak. The unit was clean and decorated just right...not too much and not too little. With this unit being on the bottom floor and on the end, it couldn't have been more perfect for my "girls" getaway. We cooked out on the grill that was provided with the unit and were able to sit out on the patio and enjoy the ocean noise and music without disturbing anyone. The location was quiet which was exactly what we were needing. The only fault I could see was that there was no hot tub within the condo facility, but overall, I, hopefully, will be back next year.

Great room, limmited view
Left on 05/13/2010 for a stay in April 2010 | Sue
The room was amazing, clean and had everything you could want. The view was limited due to being on the 1st floor and behind the cement fence. The walk onto the beach was truly just out the door. A beach umbrella & 2 beach chairs were provided , which was very nice.

This condo was in the perfect location for our family. We loved the corner lot with the private patio. My three children loved that we were seconds from the pool and a minute from the beach. Having beach service was an extra postive perk. However, the carpet needs to be updated and the condo had a bad odor to it. We had to spray with lysol every day. It would be nice if the pool was heated.
Everything was great.

From the time we got to the property everything was great. Easy pick up of keys and things were ready for us in a timely manner. Loved having the beach chairs available too. The property was very clean and thing was easy to use. Nice to have wireless internet available too. All in all a wonderful experience.
Convenient but dirty.
Left on 07/31/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | hoosier girl
I loved the location of the condo. It was right on the beach and convenient to restaurants, putt putt, grocery, everything we needed. My only problem with this particular condo is that is was filthy. The couch, throw pillows, cushions on the barstools were so dirty that I wouldn't let my kids sit on or put their heads on anything without laying a towel down first. And some of it was spots that easily could be cleaned by a cleaning crew. I had bought new white socks for the kids for the trip and they came home practically black from wearing them in the condo. Had it been clean, would've been a great stay.

Love the size of the Property - small but big in everything.
Left on 07/23/2009 for a stay in May 2009 | Mary Lou
I have stayed at this property several times and will continue to. I like that it is a small property - total 24 units. We usually stay on the bottom floor for the convience of in and out with the kids and the pool being so close. With a smaller property one of the things I like is you can always find a parking space and you do not have to walk a mile to get to the building. I recently returned from Gulf Shores, AL vacation and prefer Ft. Walton 10 time over. Between Destin and Ft. Walton you have everything you need within this 5 to 10 mile radiace.
Loved the condo and beach location.... Love it!!!
Rated a 9.5 out of 10 for me. It would be a 10 if only the bedding would be upgraded in quality!!! That's my only wish list item.
BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER
Left on 06/25/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | Margaret Hardeman
Each year my immediate and extended family goes on a "family" vacation. The last 2 years we picked Ft. Walton Beach, Fl, specifically Aqua Villa Condos. This year we rented 3 Condos. My niece and her family stayed in Aqua Villa #101 and she stated that it was the "Best Condo" she had ever stayed in. It was an end unit on the 1st floor, very nicely decorated, and everything "worked". She has 4 young children and she said it was so nice that they just walked out the door (no steps to slip on) and put on their life jackets and into the beautiful pool. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone.
Aqua Villa #101
Left on 06/18/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | Us
We received A+ service through Southern Resorts, and the unit was as nice as ever when we arrived.
It has everything you need, for cooking, sleeping and entertaining. It's close to the ocean, so no long walks to get to the beach. The swimming pool is very nice, and impeccably kept. And Aqua Villa is relatively close to shopping and restaurants, if needed. Also, with it being a corner unit, it gives you a sense of privacy.
What I liked least, is the fact that this unit doesn't have a washer / dryer in it. The facilities for that are up on the second floor, and has to be reached through use of an elevator, or two flights of steps...but really, not too much of a hassle.

The condo we stayed in was totally awesome. We were closer to the beach than I could have imagined. Basically all we had to do was walk out the door and the beach was there. Everything we needed was supplied at the condo. The staff in the office were efficient and courtious. From now on this will be how we tak our family vacations.

this place was very clean and had a very home-like feeling. Everything inside was updated and very welcoming. Lots of things to do close by and is great for families.
Great location right on the beach
Left on 10/23/2008 for a stay in September 2008 | Dick Truax
We have stayed in this unit several times in the past before the hurricanes damaged it several years ago.
It has been refurbished and the propety looks as good as ever. We like the location and the two bedrooms with separate baths. Lots of living space. Easy access to the beach and the attractions of Destin are only 10 minutes away. Yet it is more quiet and affordable than staying right in Destin.
We come to Ft. Walton almost every year and will likely rent this unit again in the future
