About the property

2 Bedroom 2.5 Bath With Bunk Room. On The Beach. 2 King Size Beds. Ocean Views

We just purchased this amazing unit at Waterscape on Ft Walton Beach June 2015. We have a great location in the middle of the complex. We are perfectly situated between the parking garage and the beach, each being just a short distance away. If you park on the 4th floor, we are less than 70 steps from the garage! The trash chute is 35 steps from your door and the elevators down to the pool are less than a 1 minute walk (sorry I forgot to measure the steps!)

We just painted, redecorated, and purchased new furniture including a mattress, king bed, sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress, night stands, and end tables June 2015. All new bedding as well! New dining, buffet, and coffee table purchased July 2016. The pictures do not reflect all of the new decor.

This is a 2 bedroom (king beds) , 2.5 bathroom unit with a bunk room (2 twin beds). There is almost 1300sqft. of living space which is exceptionally big for a 2 bedroom condo. There is also a brand new memory foam pull out sofa allowing this unit to sleep 8 comfortably.

***This unit is owner managed***

deal directly with the owners from the time of booking and throughout your stay. We purchased this condo as a vacation home for us, not as an investment. Many owners are strictly investors and never even visit the place because they only see their unit as a money maker. I have very high standards and I will be visiting my unit frequently to make sure it is well kept and in tip top shape :)

***About the unit***

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. It has all the utensils and gadgets including a blender, coffee maker, toaster, and hand mixer.

There are 2 master bedrooms that each have a king size bed. They both have their own en suite and both have balcony access. I hate that when I travel with another couple, one of us always gets stuck with a tiny room or a hall bathroom. That is not the case with this unit! Both bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. Each bathroom has there own hairdryer too :) One of the showers is so large you literally could fit the whole family in there!

The dining room table will sit 8 comfortably.

***Beach Service***

We do not have beach service with this unit. We decided not to purchase it because I have heard several negative things about it. Most of the time there will be more than 2 people in a room so with the service only providing 2 chairs it either separates families or costs them an additional money to rent another set. Also, they pull the chairs up 2 hours before sunset which is really a nice part of the day if you want to see the sunset. We included 4 chairs in the unit that can be folded and carried to the beach. They are nothing special but they do provide some seating. This way you can set up wherever you like, stay as long as you want, avoid the crowds, and have the freedom to take up as much space as you like. Also, I priced my unit as one of the cheapest so even if you added beach service, I'm still cheaper than most other units at Waterscape :) It can be purchased directly in front of Waterscape for around $20/day depending on how many days you purchase in advance.

***How to book***

Please feel free to call or email with any questions. If you are ready to book, the easiest way is to click on the "book it" yellow button close to the picture. I require half of the money up front to hold the room and the remainder will be due 15days prior to your arrival. Please be sure you are committed to your dates because I have a 0% refund policy. If you think there is a chance you might need to cancel, you can buy a small insurance policy as you are prompted along the payment screen.

**About Waterscape**

Waterscape is a gulf front water resort and the only property in the area with this level of amenities and 490' of private beach front. There is a spectacular split-level courtyard with an oasis of pools, one a zero-entry. There is a shaded play area with rubberized mat for toddlers and children adjacent to a splash area filled with built-in water toys. Waterscape has 2 hot tubs, a 10' waterfall, and an incredible Lay-Z-River for floating along in the sunshine. For active adults, there is a fitness center opened 24/7 with pleasing views of this tropical oasis. Kids will love the game room, accessible from the main lobby. Our ideal location means you are within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Old Bay Steamer is directly across the street and one of the best seafood restaurants around!

**FULL DISCLAIMER: There is construction going on next door. Waterscape was built with top of the line materials and the construction can not be heard inside the unit. If you are on the balcony, you of course can hear it. When we were down last, myself and kids actually enjoyed watching the hotel be built. It was really fascinating! As of July 2016, they are currently working on the 3rd floor.. All outside units in the "A" building (in the building where my condo is) will eventually have an obstructed view. Most people vacation at Waterscape for 2 thing, the pool area, and the accessibility to the beach. Those 2 things will not change.

Great Place for Family

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained, clean and comfortible. Had everything we needed for our Thanksgiving get-together. The covered parking and indoor access to the unit was great. Plenty of elevators for getting around in the various areas of the resort. Pool and exercise area was top notch. Lazy River was closed but probably too cold to enjoy anyway. Heated pool and hot tubs were great. Construction next door (out the window of the unit) was a little distracting but not a big issue. New building will block the view of the beach at this unit. All in all . . . great stay. Would stay again.

Fall break

  • 5 of 5

Melody was very helpful and quick to respond during our entire process, from booking to departure. We arrived to a very clean unit that was stocked with kitchen supplies, beachieving chairs and sand toys for the kids. The unit is conveniently located close to the elevator, trash chute and garage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the amenities at waterscape.

Review of my stay

  • 3 of 5

Melody was a pleasure to work with and her condo was VERY nice. She was very responsive and gave us all the details we needed for our stay. Unfortunately for her they are building a new hotel that will sooner or later block most of her view of the ocean. She was upfront about this and we knew this when we rented her condo. This property is very kid friendly, but if you are wanting to take an adult trip I would not suggest this property. The property is geared toward kids and has limitations that are geared toward children. If you want to sit by the pool and read before eight in the morning, drink an adult beverage in the pool, or relax on a raft in the pool this is not the place for you, as they have rules against all of these things. Several of the staff of Waterscape are less than friendly and we felt like we were being watched by a hall monitor in high school. Again, I want to stress that Melody was great, her condo is great and the property is great for children, but we were on an adult vacation and this property just didn't meet our needs for this. The beach was great and we had a great time in Fort Walton we just wanted an adult trip.
