“Little gem in Fort Walton Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Once we walked through the front door, I knew I'd made the right decision trying to reach this lovely B & B, although it took many emails and phone calls to finally book for a night.
The common areas are beautifully done in traditional furnishings and everything faces the water. At any time of day or night guests may help themselves to bottled water and wrapped hershey chocolates (nice touch).
The guestrooms were a tad small after the grandeur of the first floor, but cozy and with gorgeous views. Bathrooms were sparkling clean and had monogrammed fluffy towels. Our mattress was super hard but others had some give (yes...I peeked in a couple of rooms).
ask when you book if that's your issue.
Now...about that breakfast! Stephen and Pam laid out such a repast! From coffee & juice to the spicy chese grits (a house specialty) everything was delicious. My favorite was the fresh strawbery cobbler.
All in all a most delightful stay.

Room Tip: All face the bay...you can't go wrong here.

And the reason is that Aunt Martha's is so perfect that on our next trip to the Florida panhandle, we want to be able to stay here, and there may not be any vacancies once the world knows about this B&B. The turn from the main road is a bit tricky to spot the first time because it looks like the driveway for "Staff's" restaurant at #24 Miracle Strip Pkwy, SE. There are three lovely, large sitting areas on the first floor and another on the second floor. The B&B offers hundreds of books for beach reading, and we loved that bottles of water and soft drinks are provided gratis to the guests. The veranda with its porch swing is a favorite spot for local photographers. We were stayed seven days in the Periwinkle room, and everything about the room was just as we could want, clean, quiet, comfortable. Good coffee; generous breakfasts. We shall return.

Room Tip: Each room is lovely, and since it is a purpose-built B&B, all rooms are commodious and face the...

My fiancee and I decided to take a mini vacation to FL to the Destin/ Fort Walton area. I stumbled across this B&B and decided to book a room - and I am very glad I did! Bill and Martha are very gracious and the breakfast was AMAZING! The house was actually built to be a B&B, so it offered a lot of privacy without taking away from the "homey" feel. It is in a very convenient location (right next to Destin!) and is right on the water in Fort Walton. The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, and beautiful - Martha provides you with everything you might need for the duration of your stay. If you pay in cash, you also get 5% off your bill. Would recommend to all my friends and I definitely plan on staying here next year!

We have a bowling tournment we go to every year in Ft Walton. We have been staying with Aunt Martha's for the past 5 years. We love it. Can't say enough about it. Clean, best breakfast ever, best people you every want to meet, and the view speaks for itself. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. A beautiful home on the intracoastal waterway in the heart of Fort Walton Beach.

The rooms are well decorated, very clean and the bed was comfortable. We loved having morning coffee on the porch overlooking the ICWW.

The two breakfasts we had were superb. I even liked the grits!

We have stayed here several times on trips to the Florida Panhandle. The house is beautiful and comfortable. I am an early riser, so I grab something to drink, a magazine or newspaper and sit on the large back porch until a more "reasonable" hour of the morning. The breakfasts are really very good and there's lots of food. We felt very comfortable coming and going through the house as we did fun things in Ft. Walton Beach. The only negative is if you come early, Martha seems a bit rude, thinking you are trying to check in early. However, I would recommend staying here. We will stay several more times I'm sure.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the rooms on the 2nd Floor.
