Imagine your family in a beachfront resort where the waves roll right into the finest amenities on the Gulf Coast. Imagine a Lazy River, Zero-entry pool with adjustable water gadgets for the kids, a lily-pad obstacle course, a heated pool, a water slide, a covered play area for small children....hot tubs, a snack shack providing drinks and poolside meals....Imagine pool-side grilling while your children splash and play in our pristine waters. Imagine this was BEACHFRONT, where you can leave it all for a front row view of some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Imagine paddleboarding, kayaking, or just having your toes right where the water meets the sand. Quit dreaming...YOU HAVE FOUND IT. Welcome to Waterscape C203!!

Waterscape C203 is located on the Florida Panhandle in the Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area and is one of the most popular resorts on the Gulf Coast. We are a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with all the perks you'd expect from a 5-star resort, plus many that you haven't yet considered. This condo is on the ground level, so you can enjoy the convenience of stepping off the patio and being on your way. We are located in the desirable "inside" of the U, just behind the toddler and heated pool, with beautiful views of the palms, pools, and landscaping beyond. Ground level units here are highly sought after because the convenience of the step-off patio is immeasurable. Both the living room and the Master bedroom take full advantage of the ground floor, walk-out convenience and open to a spacious patio that includes seating for 4, two lounge chairs, and a deck box full of toys and floats to ensure you are fully equipped for a good time. We offer a fully-stocked kitchen making cooking-in a breeze (but of course, this is optional!). The living room has a full-size sofa that converts to a Queen size tempurpedic-topped sofa bed, a love seat, and an HDTV in case you need to spend some down time indoors. Our dining area features a large table (with a leaf under the bed) to accommodate your whole gang.

C203 is colorful and classy, offers a beachy charm, and has been carefully designed to feel like home. We have selectively stocked the condo with things you need, but nothing you don't. We offer 4 beach chairs, a large 8' umbrella, and a beach cart to provide front-row beach seating any time, day or night. This equipment is also handy at the pools, as sometimes vacant chairs can be difficult to come by. We furnish an all-terrain wagon for your little ones, a pack-n-play, high chair, and a large selection of beach toys. These are a few of the details, but I don't want to spoil all the fun!

Waterscape C203 has a really cute bunk room, taking advantage of colorful lighting that put you in the right mood and make the babes happy to get into their sleeping quarters. Our bunk room features a light blocking and sound insulating curtain, making sleeping in a breeze.

This unit is offered directly by the owner. You can rest assured that no one cares more about my property, or my guests, than me. There are only a handful of units in this resort that are truly "by owner." Every renter is truly a "guest" to me, and you will be treated as such here! Please see my reviews. :-)

Technical details about C203:

*Max occupancy is 8 (including infants).

*Large, fully stocked kitchen. (I mean business!)

*Master BR has a king Sleep Number bed.

*Master bath has double vanities, a walk in shower, and a large bathtub.

*Guest BR has a queen pillow-top bed.

*Guest bath has a single vanity and walk in shower (no tub).

*Bunk Room has bunk beds and a light-blocking privacy curtain to keep your kids soundly sleeping.

*Living room has a queen size sofa bed.

*Free Wi-Fi

*Back door, covered parking

*Keypad lock. You set the code when you arrive. No dealing with the front desk. You can go straight to the condo upon check-in and forget the thought of fumbling around with keys.

Technical Details about Waterscape, just in case you missed them elsewhere:

*HUGE Zero-entry pool with waterfall, Lily Pad course, and water gadgets

*Lazy River with tubing provided

*Quieter upper level pool, heated seasonally

*AWESOME Toddler pool with waterslide and waterfall/water gadgets

*Covered play area for kids (save the sunburn!)

*2 very large hot tubs, snack shack, beautiful landscaping, gated parking, 24/7 security (a HUGE plus)

*Poolside gas Weber grills that are professionally cleaned daily

*Beach Club (planned activities, movies at the pool, crafts, karaoke etc; Summer only)

*Fitness Center on pool level with gorgeous views

How to book: Booking with me is easy. I email you 3 simple documents to fill out and sign. (If you want to see the contract before you pay on this site, you will need to find me on another site or on Facebook, because they no longer show me your contact_info which makes it impossible for me to email it prior to payment.) You return them with your $250 deposit. The deposit secures your reservation and covers any damage to the unit that you might cause. Rent is due 1 month prior to check-in. I return the deposit after your stay if the unit is left in the same condition as found. All of this is covered in detail in the rental paperwork. If you have questions about anything, of course, I’m just an email or phone call away. Now that this site has hidden my contact info from you, a quick search of the goog will easily reveal me. I'm sorry they make it so difficult. I don't like it either!

~I no longer buy in to Waterscape's beach service. Most of the time my units have more than 2 adults and providing 2 chairs either separates families or costs them an additional $120 to rent another set. Then you get stuck on the 2nd or 3rd row with no view, and they pull the chairs up 2 hours before sunset. To better serve my guests, I now include 4 very nice beach chairs, an 8' umbrella (larger than beach service's) with a twist-in anchor for easy setup, and a huge rolling beach cart with sand wheels (with a built in cooler) for ease in carrying it to and from. This way, you can set up wherever you like and stay as long as you want, avoid the crowds, and have the freedom to take up as much space as you like.

About Danica

We are a family of four from Alabama. We love to come to the beach to relax together. Frequently we bring our bicycles and bike around town, and even travel to nearby towns with long bike paths. (There is excellent biking nearby--ask if interested!)

We own three condos at Waterscape and they actually keep us VERY busy when we travel here. We strive to keep our condos impeccable, and this means a lot of work when we visit. We love it though, and our guests always come first.

Text_me at 20Five30Five7Nine22. :-)

Danica purchased this condo in 2012

Why Danica chose North West Florida

We came to Waterscape in 2009, and have not visited another beach property since. Waterscape has everything kids could ever dream for, and adults of all ages fall in love with the place. We bought in Waterscape because there just isn't anything like it around. We love the grounds and amenities, and the area isn't too crowded. The sugar white beaches are beautiful. We just love it here.

What makes this condo unique

I love this property because I can park, unload my groceries and kids, walk a few feet to my front door, and never touch stairs or an elevator. I also love being able to walk right out to the pool from my front door! We are close to the kids pool, and while sitting on the patio you can relax to the sounds of the waterfall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Beautiful Home. So comfortable and filled with all the little details we could have hoped for! Thank you for such an amazing experience from our initial contact throughout our vacation. We will definitely recommend you back home and be back ourselves!

PS. Thanks for the special surprise for the kids! They loved it!"

We have stayed at other condos, but have never been overly impressed. I searched high and low- I think I have read every review on every condo in Florida!! THIS is it. Your search is over. The owner of this condo goes above and beyond to take care of every detail. She genuinely cares about your vacation experience! The condo is stocked, far beyond expectations. From the moment we arrived and realized how close our car was parked to the front door, it was such a relief. No big deal unloading the car. No big deal bringing in groceries. When you open the door, the vacation music has already begun. She even left a little gift for our kids! NO ONE else cares enough to do that! I am a clean freak- let me tell you-our condo was VERY clean. No complaints- and I can usually find something... The beach cart was so helpful. Beach- beautiful! Pools- fantastic and clean! We got to choose where we wanted to be, which I loved that. Bottom line, you have found your next vacation spot. Totally worth every penny.

Another great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying in this unit at Waterscape... and it did not disappoint as usual! The condo is very clean and spacious and has direct access to all the pools. The owner always goes the extra mile to ensure everything is perfect, even leaving a sweet gift for each of my children upon arrival. I would highly recommend this unit anytime of year!

Grandparent's Dream

Very clean condo. Loved the grocery service the housekeeper offered. We loved all the kid friendly amenities. The splash pad was great for our three toddlers. The owner is amazing and goes above and beyond to make the stay wonderful. The property is perfect for a family beach trip.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice and clean condominium. It was perfect for someone with small children. It was very spacious. We had 6 adults and three children. It never felt cramped. The owner goes out of their way to make it an enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend!

We stayed for 7 days and can't wait to go back.
