We stayed here for 4 days from October 15th 2013 and it was perfect,everything was immaculate.I used to live in Fort Walton as a child and was revisiting my past.This was the
perfect base.Very friendly and helpful people,fantastic house,great views over bay,great porch
great boat dock,sat out on dock one evening sharing it with a heron when some dolphins swam past.Sat on back porch in morning drinking coffee whilst looking out over bay..this place is heaven.Breakfast was unbelievable.

Room Tip: any room is great..ours was the ROSE room a double overlooking bay

From the quiet and spacious room you can enjoy the view of Santa Rosa Sound, play the piano on the lobby, sit on the rockin' chair in the patio, paddle in a canoe, read a book in a sofa while sipping a glass of wine, stroll to downtown...and then after a restful night enjoy a great Southern full breakfast chattin with the other gests. Beautiful !

My girlfriend and I spent a single night at Aunt Martha's on a trip to Seaside, FL. It was very relaxing and comfortable. After spending a very long day driving, we arrived late at night with a note explaining all we needed to know as well as the owner's # in case we had other questions. We settled into the very clean, cozy Sunflower room and slept like babies. We woke up to the smell of a delicious, savory home-cooked breakfast. After a cup of coffee, some cheesegrits, and (poundcake!) french toast, we spent a little porch time rocking away in the midday sun breaking through the canopy of trees on the property. And just before we got too comfortable to leave, we bid Aunt Martha's adieu and were off to the next leg of our journey. A wonderful experience. Recommended.

I’ve been visiting Fort Walton my whole life and never realized there was such a beautiful spot, right behind one of my favorite restaurant, Staffs. My parents stayed here a couple of times and raved about it, so I was happy when I had the opportunity to visit Aunt Martha’s Bed and Breakfast for myself.

I arrived late in the evening after a long drive and was welcomed by a beautifully decorated entryway, complete with a baby grand piano. My room was the Periwinkle Room, which was located on the second floor, overlooking the bay. It was extremely clean and I enjoyed a very good night’s sleep. The next morning, I headed downstairs and was shocked to see the amazing breakfast that was laid out on the table. The food was incredible and I almost had to roll myself away from the table because I was so full.

After breakfast, I had the opportunity to walk around the grounds and enjoy the scenery. There were kayaks and other water toys that the guests could borrow, and also a cool slide on the dock that went into the bay. I sat on the back porch swing, had some coffee, and petted Aunt Martha’s cat. I enjoyed my stay at Aunt Martha’s and will definitely be back. I can’t recommend it enough!

We stayed at this B&B for just 2 nights but I would recommend it to anyone heading to the panhandle. The rooms are large and comfortable, the breakfast is gorgeous and it is really nice that at breakfast you sit at a big table with the other guests so that you can chat a bit and get to know each other. We travelled two weeks in Florida and since we come from Europe it was great to talk with americans to get some tipps and have some small talk. The house is really nice and it is really a quiet place. A really good thing is that you can get yourself water and soft drinks for free. There is a large fridge in the laundry room and you can serve yourself. Absolutely great! A wonderful B&B at a reasonable price!

We arrived at a beautiful yellow home sitting along the shore line of Santa Rosa Sound, surrounded by large oak trees. My husband and I walked through a beautiful manicured flower garden with a flowing water fountain and gold fish. A large oak door with brass handles opened into a beautiful foyer where we were greeted with a warm note explaining our room location. Five rooms were color coordinated and decorated with southern elegance. Big brass beds were adorned with hand made quilts and embroidered pillows cases. A baby grand was located in the middle of the house; My husband made his self right at home and played for a while. The other guest was amazed with his beautiful perforce and commented on how great he sounded. Milk glass bowls were filled with yummy chocolates. A chess game was awaiting anyone willing to play, great books filled the built in library, and antique furniture adorned each room. The outdoors was just as magnificent. Wicker furniture, a swing and picnic tables filled the back yard. Fishing poles with tackle and kayaks are available for your pleasure. We enjoyed a sunset kayak trip across the ICW. Large palm trees holding small lights set the tone for a romantic evening as we sipped Morgan Creek wine and planed our next get a way. Coffee was ready at 7:00 am in the kitchen where the guest made small chat. This is the first time we saw the owners. They were hospitable and respect your privacy. Martha had the large dinning room table set with fine china and cut crystal glasses, matching decanters were filled with juice. Fresh fruit salad topped with vanilla yogurt was served in martini glasses. Sterling silver platters were filled with bacon, French toast, fried potatoes, and a veggie frittata all served family style. We enjoyed great conversation with the other guest. Check out was not until 11:00 am, this is when they ask you to pay for your services. Absolutely a beautiful gem.

This is such a charming place. The grounds are heavily treed, with a wonderful view of the water. Sitting on her back porch in a rocking chair is as peaceful as it gets. Our room was well furnished and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this place!
