This homey studio, one of the Pirates' Bay Condos, is a darling space to call home during your trip to the matchless Emerald Coast.
Right on the Santa Rosa Sound, this home is not only near the bustling town of Fort Walton Beach, but is also close to many tourist attractions, recreation spots, and scenic areas, not to mention the many fine restaurants and shops.
Upon arrival, you (and up to three more guests) will feel right at home in the main room with its inviting queen-size bed, plus a flatscreen cable television with HBO, free high-speed WiFi, and a soft couch near the window. A small table with two chairs serves as a snappy space for sharing vacation stories over lunch or dinner. The kitchenette includes a stove top, coffee maker, slim fridge, sink, and a microwave. In the morning, feel free to take your breakfast and coffee outside on the balcony to welcome a new and exciting day on the Emerald Coast.
At night, up to four guests can nestle up in the sofabed and the queen-size bed. This is a perfect arrangement for a young family or a few friends to enjoy budget-friendly lodging without sacrificing comfort and amenities.
A full bathroom, which includes a combined shower and bathtub, has everything you need to freshen up before heading to the beach or to town. Other amenities of this studio include access to a shared washer and dryer and a community, outdoor pool located just outside of the building (and don't forget about the bay views)!
If you've already planned a trip here, we don't doubt you're already familiar with this spot's perks in close proximity, such as Okaloosa Island and Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park. Just three miles north is family-friendly Ocean City, FL. Head farther north another three miles to swing a few clubs at the Fort Walton Beach Golf Club.

Although we were only there for 1 night visiting family in Pirate's Bay B building, A-415 had a terrible odor we could not fix with Lysol or Tilex. Smell would almost knock you down when you opened the door. Might be something to do with the AC unit. Nasty!
We are sorry for the unpleasant odor. We have bleached the drains and A/C drain lines, and plumbing is scheduled to come and inspect for the source. Thank you!
We loved this place! Walked right outside and fished!!!
This unit is a small studio just down the road from downtown Fort Walton. Good location. Small and affordable place to stay.
Do not stay here until construction has been completed! Construction workers were everywhere and it was noisy, dirty and dangerous for anyone! If you stay, make sure you stay at a newly renovated unit!! We couldn’t even swim in the pool it was so dirty! We couldn’t enjoy the balcony because all the dusty furniture was inside the unit and a construction sign on sliding glass door saying, Do Not Enter between 8:00 am-6 pm! Tarp was over the railing to block the view of the bay! I think everyone that stays here during construction like this should get their money back!!!
We apologize if construction came as a surprise to this guest. If our guests book through third parties they do seem to be uninformed about the situation. Construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of April. Thank you!
We really had a great stay in this unit.
It is centrally located to everything in the area from Pensacola down to Destin and 30A. The condo building itself is older but well maintained. The views are killer. The pool is huge and gorgeous. Ample parking and well-lit grounds. There are ice machines, laundry facilities, an elevator and trash receptacles on every floor. Great little complex.
The condo is exactly as it appears in the photos. It was really nice to be able to wake up and cook our own breakfast in the mornings. You can't do that in a hotel! The water in the shower was hot and had good water pressure. They supply ample bedding and towels for the bathroom as well as toilet paper, paper towels and dish soap, etc. The AC worked really well. The fridge/freezer were newer and suited our needs.
However, the unit could use some work. The TV is old and needs to be replaced. The furniture is cheap and mismatched, the decor is dated. Some of the dishes were dirty when we pulled them out. The screen door needs repairs. One night when we came back after being out all day there was a big cockroach in the middle of the floor. The walls are scuffed up and the unit probably needs to be repainted soon.
If you look around on Vacasa you will find units that have been renovated recently for around the same price. (I didn't know this when I booked it).
I would definitely stay in Pirate's Bay again but maybe not in this unit. The price and location cannot be beat.
I really hope the owners of this unit decide to spruce up the condo soon. It has some real potential that is not quite realized right now.
As for Vacasa, I have nothing but good things to say. There was some problems getting the rental agreement executed but we worked it out. We also decided to extend our stay by one night (my mom had evacuated for Hurricane Irma so she wasn't quite ready to go home on our check-out day) and one simple call to Vacasa and a 5-minutes later, we were paid and confirmed. Easy peasy. This was my first time using Vacasa and I will use them again! Thanks guys!
Great location and view for the price.
Cheap wobbly coffee table, dirty floors and bathroom walls. Terrible Bathroom tile job. Blinds were messed up and internet was terrible. I actually like Pirates Bay just not this room. Would stay in another place. The view here is nice and the area is pretty quiet. Hopefully the owners in the next studio condo will actually put some effort into the place. Also the studio condos are tiny so just keep that in mind when you look at the pics. Wide angle lens make things look bigger then they are. Was just fine for me but just making people aware.
The Property Manager is working with the owner on replacing the blinds and coffee table. Housekeeping has taken care of the dirty floors and walls. We appreciate having the opportunity to address these concerns.
I feel that all rooms should be inspected with a white glove from the floor up. I will not return to either property. The pictures and comments that I viewed prior to my reservation are misleading
We sincerely apologize for the poor cleanliness this guest encountered; housekeeping will work on reaching our cleanliness standards, and we do have deep cleans for all of our homes lined up. Thank you!
With being originally from the Fort Walton Beach area and having been living away for the part 10 years. It is still one of the most beautiful areas for me. This being said the following issues would stop me from renting this unit again but would not stop me from booking with this company again.
Even with sweeping every day we were finding items that we did not bring with us (parts of toys). We went to unpack and put clothes in the dresser and found bugs. Three out of the six drawers in the dresser were taken up with (two pillows and and extra wiring for ?). We could not walk around without shoes on without having black (dirty) feet. Someone before us burned something in the microwave and the smell hit you as you walked into the room, the bathroom, or leaving the room. Sofa bed made cracking noise when pulling out but held up to our 10 year old. Chair backs at table coming apart. Bottom right had dresser drawer sticks. Coffee table not level. The cable was so bad that all you really got to see on the TV was snow and the WiFi would not work for us. We called and were told we needed to call another number if we were having problems.
We are disappointed to find out this guest did not enjoy this unit. The Property Manager will find alternate storage for the blankets and pillows, and the sofa bed will be inspected for repairs.
Very nice and comfortable enjoyed our stay
The condo was a great location, price, and had a great view!
Only downside was the noisy bed and blinds that didn't close all the way - but hopefully that will be fixed soon! Many extras, kitchen appliances, towels, soap, etc provided by the condo.
Fort Walton was a great location for us to explore many beaches! We spent a lot of time in Navarre, Pensacola, Destin, and Okaloosa.
Definitely try out Parasailing, it's worth the money and buy the photo package! For a casual evening, we tried out KC's Sandbar and Grille. Great live music by "The Wide Open." We enjoyed a pitcher of housemade Sangria and crab dib. Perfect evening!
If you head towards Pensacola Beach, check out "Peg Leg Pete's" - it was suggested by locals and we loved it!
I enjoyed the location close to my locations .I would definitely come back and stay at they same location .
Great studio condo!
Five minute drive to the beach!
Furnishings are exactly as described... Wi-fi was good.
I found that the cable box had fallen behind the dresser, so the 'tv only displays one channel' problem in other reviews should be resolved. Only downside was that the bed, while comfortable, was very squeaky and loud. We really enjoyed this quiet condo for our trip!
We enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect.
Condo was a perfect size for my boyfriend and I.
The wif information provided did not work at all, so that was an inconvenience with having to use my data and certain things not working for my daughters tablet. Overall the view was nice, all the utensils provided was a plus. I would recommend this unit to friends. The furniture needs to be cleaned it had spots on it.
The Property Manager has inspected the WiFi and found it to be working; we are happy to assist guests with WiFi access if it's a struggle during their stay. The sofas are scheduled to be professionally cleaned at the end of the busy summer season, but they have been spot-cleaned by housekeeping for the meantime.
The pool is clean and so relaxing. There were very few people there and we had the place all to ourselves everyday. We were in close proximity to everything we needed. The refrigerator is a mini so don't expect to
Fit a lot in it. Overall the condo is Very clean and we would definitely stay here again.
