Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
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! We are real owner-hosts and strive to keep our unit spotless and well supplied for our cherished guests.

NOTE: Our marina is currently under repair due to damage from hurricane in 2020; we are not able to offer a boat slip at this time.

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 "Relaxing Soundside Conda - Whataview".

Our studio provides a well-furnished kitchenette with ceramic cooktop, cooking utensils, large coffee maker, large Oster Oven, microwave, 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.

NOTE: Due to Hurricane Sally in September 2020, access to the marina is restricted and our 25' slip is currently not available. Reconstruction is underway with hopes to be done by summer 2021. 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. Once the marina is rebuilt, we can again 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.

Where you’ll be

Fort Walton Beach, Florida, United States

Fort Walton Beach is a compact coastal town in the Florida Panhandle. Our condo is located approximately half way between Mary Esther and Okaloosa Island along the main road (Highway 98) and is just a short hop from downtown shopping, dining, and pubs. Waterfront access is easy from the grounds or docks, and the intracoastal waterway is a stone's throw from the marina. The nearest Gulf beach is about 2.5 miles away just over the bridge on Okaloosa Island. Numerous attractions are located at the nearby beach, including the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, Wild Willies Adventure Zone, The Boardwalk, and the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier. Closer to home, you'll find a great waterfront pathway and public dog walk areas at Liza Jackson Park; the Emerald Coast Science Center is a short 3 minute drive up Memorial Blvd.
