Vacation or work at our comfortable waterfront kitchenette studio in the heart of Fort Walton Beach. The sugar white sand beaches are just a short drive away, and adventure awaits right at your doorstep on Santa Rosa Sound. Includes pool and marina!

The space

Come spend a relaxing time during vacation or business travel and enjoy our comfortable waterfront studio condo at Pirate's Bay in the heart of Fort Walton Beach. We're close to downtown and shopping, yet our inland location avoids beach traffic and congested parking. BUT, the beautiful white sand beaches of Okaloosa Island are just a short 2 mile drive away. We cherish our 4th floor view of the waterway and think you will, too! We have two studio units located just 3 doors apart, so check out our other listing on this site for a different option at "Relaxation on Santa Rosa Sound".

Our B413 studio provides a complete kitchenette and cooking utensils, with large coffee maker and full sized refrigerator. Entertainment includes digital TV service and high speed internet. The sofa opens into a queen sized sleeper, allowing extra bed space for adults or children.

There is a wonderful large mickey-shaped pool located directly below the balcony. You'll also find a small sandy beach on the edge of the sound where you can sit and enjoy a good book or awesome sunset. Charcoal grills are available for use on the grounds. Pirate's Bay is a marina resort property offering boat slips for the traveling sailor, and a great place to hang out for the landlubber. We can include a boat slip in your rental for a small extra fee. Our large marina allows you to stroll along the docks and enjoy beautiful sunsets along Santa Rosa Sound, or spend a relaxing time casting a line into the depths to catch a fish.

Enjoy the good life at Pirate's Bay right on the edge of the Sound, and leave your worries behind.

Guest access

Guests have complete use of the condo, and have access to the grounds, pools, and marina. A secure digital keypad opens the unit door. The gated areas are accessible with a standard key. There is plenty of parking available right in front of the building. An elevator makes the trip to the 4th floor a breeze, but stairwells also provide a quick climb for you exercise enthusiasts. A wheeled baggage cart for self-service use is kept near the elevator. Guests requiring mail delivery can ask for a key to a secure postal box in the elevator lobby. Boat slips are available by request, and must be arranged in advance.

Interaction with guests

We live locally and are usually about 5-10 minutes away from the condo. We are happy to run over to assist our guests when needed, with just a phone call.

Other things to note

We try hard to keep our rates affordable. Because the unit is in the tourism taxing district, Airbnb includes the local bed tax in the rental cost (5%) along with state sales tax (6%). How is that money used? It pays for beach safety and lifeguards, special event activities on Okaloosa Island, and visitor information publications/websites.

There are coin operated laundry machines on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Ice is available free on the 2nd floor. Several eating places are within a short walk from the condo, including the Olive Garden, 2 Thai diners, Pizza Hut, and a Sushi place. Waffle House, iHop, Red Lobster, Oceans Buffet, and several other eateries are all within half a mile. Nearest grocery store is Publix about a mile away. Downtown Fort Walton has a bundle of places to eat and enjoy a brew or cocktail and it's just a short hop from our doorstep.

This condo was fantastic! It is a short 5 minute drive to a beautiful white sandy beach, and just a 15 minute drive to downtown Destin. The kitchen is fully stocked with supplies and there is a fridge provided. The beds are comfortable and the sofa pulls out into a bed. Steve and Tara were quick to respond to any requests and messages. Access to the pool and marina in seconds of walking. Lovely patio with a table and chairs for eating outdoors with a view of the water. Towels, sheets and bedding provided! Would come back in a heartbeat.
