Waters Edge Resort Condominiums. This place is located on one of the largest beachfronts on the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico, and has the largest gulf front swimming pool on the Emerald Coast. Few places are blessed with a more spectacular setting than Waters Edge on Okaloosa Island Fl, with views of the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. From the 5th floor not only see the great beach and gulf waters, you also get a view of the sparkling waters of Santa Rosa Sound.
This place is really cool It’s got a humongous 5,000 sq. ft. Gulf-side pool. An unbelievable beach. And it’s located near lots of great restaurants and attractions. Plus, with over 400 feet of beautiful Gulf frontage, the beach at Waters Edge is never too crowded! They call this a mid-rise condominium. That means you don’t have to wait hours for the elevator. I’ve always kind of liked going a different direction.
And that makes Waters Edge a great place to vacation. Get away. Not a lot of crowding. Great beach. Great pool. What more can you ask for?
Here’s the scoop on the condo:
It’s roomy! And what a view. Whether you’re in the kitchen or the living room, you’re looking at the beach and the gulf. The place is really cozy. Comfortable furniture. It’s beachy. Not uppity.
The LIVING ROOM sofa is big and comfortable. It’s a queen sleeper too! The entertainment center, which has a big TV, looks like a 30” and don’t forget, the DVD player lets you play movies when you’re beached out. The balcony overlooks the swimming pool and the beach. Nice.
Check out the MASTER BEDROOM. Huge King size bed with a carved headboard. What a great space. And the bed’s really comfortable. I laid down on it to see how it felt. Almost went to sleep. Really makes a statement. It’s really spacious. There’s another TV, 20” or so.
The bunk area’s kid friendly. The little one’s will think it’s pretty cool.
The KITCHEN’s a beauty with granite counter tops. It’s open and has everything that you need so no matter whether you’re cooking your specialty or just fixing grilled cheese sandwiches you’ve got everything you need to please the family. There’s a big kitchen bar with four bar chairs so you can grab a quick bit before you hit the beach.
The DINING AREA has a big table, really comfortable so everyone’s got a seat at the table.
The LAUNDRY area’s located to make keeping everyone in clean clothes a breeze.
This bedrooms and bunk area sleeps 4 with 2 baths.
This is the getaway you’re looking for. At the right price too. You won’t find a better beachfront deal than right here at Waters Edge.

We have stayed in many condo units at watersedge, but this one was filthy. We had gnats everywhere I had to go buy raid and spray several times a day. Kitchen rug was nasty I took it up and hid it in the wash room. So dirty I did not want to put it in the washer. In the coners of the kitchen floor was lent, and food. I cleaned the food up and wiped a rag across the floor and it was pure dirt. We kept our flip flops on the whole time. Sinks, and tub were clean. Sliding door was dirty, and you even did not want to look behind the entertainment center, and the back of the door to the wash room and where the water heater is.The air vents are black not white.. this unit need some elbow grease and deep cleaning done for sure.
“Water's Edge nice complex but this condo had gnats!”

We liked the complex but it is located down the street from a bar and strip club so that was not so nice. Also, there was a terrible gnat infestation that despite professional spraying and daily spraying would not go away and what made it worse is that it wss in the kitchen area and lasted the entire time that we were there. Also, this condo did not come with beach chairs and umbrella and one of the employees for the company that manages the chairs and umbrellas was very rude. Don't think that I would stay there again but it was a last minute trip and this was all that was available.

The location was great and the pools and property were well maintained. The condo was very nice but needs a little tlc. The master bedroom furniture had lots of missing knobs and was dirty under the bed as well as under the bunks in the hall. The paint needs touching up all around. The bathroom curtain had mold and mildew on it. I know this sounds like it was terrible but it wasn't. However it is things that need to be addressed. I would definitely stay there again.

We really like Waters Edge-- good location, great pools, not very crowded, beautiful beach area. However, our condo was not very clean. There was some black marks on the bedroom sheets that came out when I washed them. I recommend changing the maid service-- nothing smelled or felt that clean (sheets, bathrooms, kitchen, dishes, floors). It is sad that someone spends $1100 and feels like they need to clean the place themselves. I will give this condo one more chance, but if it is in the same shape again then I will look at renting from Resort Quest in the future.

Loved the condo. Have never stayed at Waters Edge before but loved it there! My only complaint is the condo could use to be painted. Other than that...perfect! The condo was very clean. The building itself also maintained very well. We LOVED the beach here. We have stayed in Destin area about 10-12 times, this is our favorite spot to date. You will not be disappointed with this property or location, it was perfect for us & we do plan on returning. Thanks for such a great week!
