“Great place to take your family”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This was our 1st family vacation(kids ages 2 and 7). We are on a budget so having the kitchen was perfect. We cooked most of our meals and ate them on our balcony overlooking the ocean. The grounds are kept immaculate. Our room was just as clean. Beautiful view from our room. We will never stay anywhere else. Grocery store and outlets within walking distance.

Pay a little extra and stay here. You'll be able to cook in your small apartment, be close to the beach, and right across from the outlets. We absolutely loved this - rented a kayak for the day and we really enjoyed that. The walk to the beach was not very far at all - some people complained about it, but we didn't see the problem. We loved the views and we would regularly see whales and dolphins while sitting on our balcony. We would definitely stay here again.

I enjoyed condo 606 & location. My family stayed in condo 511 & 611. Condo 611 is amazing!!! The grounds we very nice! The construction next door was a little unexpected. My only complaint were the hot tubs ... One was cold and the other was like warm! Other than that it was a pretty good stay.

Our hot tub heater actually stopped working on us last week! It was replaced the following day but took a while to get everything just right. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. The other smaller pool is a children's splash pool and it is not heated. Thank you for the kind words in your review and please come visit us again soon! - The new hot tub heater is a scorcher!

This was my first trip to the Destin area, and I did a lot of research before booking anything. Edgewater was the nicest I found, and I was not disappointed. Two large pools, close to the beach, a tiki bar for food and drinks......what more could a person ask for. My condo was very clean and roomy, and the parking was convenient. I would certainly return to Edgewater.

Our condo was very clean and inviting. The grounds were kept very well. Both pools as well as the kiddie pool were clean. The hot tub was also clean. We had 2 beach chairs with an umbrella each day we were there. The staff that we came in contact with were very pleasant. Eric was a staff member working the beach area and was very friendly and helpful. The rules of the resort are listed on their website and the staff followed those rules. When it was time for the pool to close, the security guard told us politely that it was closing time. We were treated with respect at all times. We plan on staying at Edgewater again.

This was our second trip to the Gulf and our second time at Edgewater. Both trips we've been pleased with our condos (606 & 1102). They met our needs and were very clean and comfy. The ground around the complex are neat and tidy. The pools are big and clean! The fitness room was perfect for vacation work outs. We loved the views from our rooms, but we felt we had a better view in 1102. There is plenty of parking and we never had an issue finding a spot. The guys working the beach to give you umbrellas and chairs were VERY friendly and helpful. We love Edgewater and are excited to be going back next summer to celebrate a family reunion! We checked out other properties around the area and the Edgewater staff worked with us to accommodate our needs!

I have traveled to many places all over the world and have NEVER been treated the way my family was treated at Edgewater.
Edgewater is in a good location and nice,but somewhat dated. I would not recommend Edgewater to anyone until the General Manager is replaced with someone who actually considers their guests TOP priority over hearsay from a guest at a neighboring complex.
Just because we took advantage of the drop in rates does not mean we are not a decent family and that we should be treated any different!
You may want to state in your rules that laser pointers are not allowed because they are sold in all of the shops. To evict a family with children in the middle of the night is very sad. I hate it that this is the memory my kids will have of this trip. Even though we ended up staying we felt uncomfortable the rest of the trip. Like I said please print this in your rules before another family lets one of their kids have a laser pointer to have fun with and ends up with a very upset child and family!

We strive to keep our "policies and rules" as short as possible and leave certain scenarios up to personal judgment. While we have no problem with guests using laser pointers in the privacy of their rooms, we do not allow them to be used outside. This is especially the case when using them to target other guests or their rooms. Additionally, laser pointers are illegal to use in many scenarios including pointing them at law enforcement officials, vehicles, aircraft or boats. At Edgewater we want everyone's experience to be a pleasant one and discourage any behavior that may be disruptive to other guests. Following the incident described in the above review, we amended our policies to include "laser pointers". You can find a link to our rental policies at the bottom of our official website: www.edgewaterbeach.com.
