About the property

2 Bedroom 2.5 Bath with bunk room On the beach 2 King size beds Part. ocean view

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. There is a partial ocean view from the master bedroom and balcony. 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.

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. I make trips quarterly to make sure the condo is well kept, clean, 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. There is also a beach cart that you can use for your convenience. 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!

Condo as pictured, Owner super helpful

  • 4 of 5

The owner was extremely helpful and provided excellent information about the condo and check-in/check-out. She also accommodated our requests for a pack-n-play and early check-in. This is a large, busy resort, but if this is the type of complex you are looking for, this is a very nice unit. I would have given the 5th star but the mattresses in both masters have significant collapsed areas and should be replaced.

This condo felt like vacation when you walked in the door. The kids loved the pools and all the activities involved. My wife and I loved the lazy river and the beach access.

We were very disappointed that the view from the balcony was the parking lot of the Hilton Garden Inn (horrible view!!!! I know it's technically disclosed in the pics, but the pics are VERY misleading!!!), definitely not my idea of a beach front property/vacation! The condo was very nice and clean and I did speak to the owner once and she was very nice and easily accessible, but overall, we were not at all impressed with what we paid so much money for. The pool area was SO over crowded and unpleasant.... There were literally people lined up at 730am to reserve a chair and some guests told us that if we weren't there with our things by 830am after setting our things out, our things would be put in the lost in found by the staff (not my idea of a relaxing vacation, WHO WANTS to get up that early on a vacation anyway).... lastly, we paid for beach chairs and umbrellas for the week and it was still first come first serve to get a decent spot and many people stayed almost all day before life guards realized they had not even paid at which time they left and still didn't pay (any other resort we've stayed at, your same spot was reserved for the week so you didn't feel rushed to find a spot to relax at on your vacation). I really hate to write a negative review.... I actually never even usually 'throw my two cents in' if it's negative but this trip was immensely disappointing bc of where we stayed! We make a trip to the Destin/Fort Walton area every year with our family and this is undoubtedly the first year we have ever stayed at a place we were so disappointed in.... especially since it was so expensive... We literally paid 1/2 the price at the Tops'l resort in Destin in mid June and we had a BEAUTIFUL, HUGE condo with an AMAZING beach front view (this particular condo, especially the kitchen, is very small)!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you did not have a good time in Ft. Walton Beach. Guest satisfaction is of upmost importance to me and I take your review very seriously. Waterscape is a popular place and rightfully so. It has amazing amenities and it's located on the beach. Having said that, it does draw a crowd especially the week you stayed of July 4th (the busiest week of the year). If you are looking for the pool and beach to yourself, then Waterscape that week might not be the best suggestion. This condo is beach front and has a partial ocean view. You can be down at the sand in under 2minutes! The ocean can be seen from the balcony and master bedroom. I thought I did a good job of depicting that in the pictures and description but I will add a few other photos so there is no confusion. I'm sorry you had a problem renting chairs. I, nor Waterscape, is affiliated with the chair rental company. I provide my own beach chairs and beach cart to my renters so they don't have to rent and can set up when and wherever they please. In regards to the size of the condo, I have to respectfully disagree with you. We have almost 1300 of square footage which is extremely large for a 2 bedroom condo. If you read some of the other reviews, they will reiterate that this is a big condo with plenty of space. Again, I'm sorry you didn't have a good time. Thank you for bringing attention to the pictures as I will handle that ASAP.

Very Nice Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and very spacious. The owner was great to deal with and provided her personal number in case anything was needed. She even provided everything needed for the first three days so you don’t have to worry about TP or washing packets. My kid loved Waterscape and had a blast! We will be back next year.
