Waterscape Resort C505, Beachfront Condo with Ocean View

Waterscape C505, Gorgeous Gulf View & Beachfront Hammock

Waterscape C505 is located on the Florida Panhandle in the Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area in one of the most popular resorts on the Gulf Coast. We are a 2 bedroom plus bunkroom, 2.5 bath condo with all the perks you'd expect from a 5-star resort, plus many that you haven't yet considered. Waterscape is the Gulf Coast's most fun, family-friendly, BEACHFRONT resort featuring multiple pools with waterfalls, a heated pool, lazy river, waterslide, toddler pool/splash pad, two hot tubs, onsite tiki hut, and MORE! You can see pictures and a 3D tour of the resort here.

Located in the desireable "inside" of the U, our condo overlooks the resort and is naturally equipped with a beautiful beach view. Both the living room and the Master bedroom take full advantage of the scenery and open to a spacious patio that includes seating for 4, a hammock, and a lounge chair for you to do just that: lounge. 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 table for 6.

C505 is colorful and classy, offers a beachy charm, and feels like home. We have selectively stocked the condo with things you need, but nothing you don't. We offer free beach service, extra beach chairs, and a large 8' umbrella to provide front-row beach seating at your leisure. 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 deck box full of floats and beach toys. These are a few of the details, but I don't want to spoil all the fun!

Waterscape C505 contains the resort's cutest bunk room. The flamingos and lantern lights put you in the right mood and make the babes happy to crawl into their sleeping quarters. Our bunk room features a light blocking and sound insulating curtain, making sleeping in a breeze. This unit sleeps 6 people comfortably.

We Loved Waterscape!

Condo was very clean and we loved all the extras -beach toys, wagon, cooler,etc. Danica was easy to work with and very responsive to all our needs! Loved the ocean view and resort! We will be back in the future!

Great Snowbird Visit, Returning next year!

Our stay at Waterscape was Wonderful! The condo had such a great view of the ocean, the pool and the property. Sitting on the balcony was one our favorite things to do. Drinking coffee in the morning, sunbathing in the afternoon and looking at the stars at night. The condo had everything we needed to make it like our home away from home. Parking was so convenient for us. Practically right outside the door from the condo. Having a bad back it made it easy to get to and from our car. The only hiccup was there was lots of maintenance was going on for 2-3 weeks. The heated pool was emptied and being repaired. I understand that all the painting, lawn being repaired and sanding was in preparation for the season but still it was somewhat disruptive at times. But on the other hand my husband kind of enjoyed watching the workers. We loved seeing the fighter jets from Elgin Air Force base fly over the condos. All in all, we can't wait to come back next year. Danica is a joy and very responsive to any questions or concerns!!

C505 all the way!

Don’t know where to start! This condo was A#1 all the way from location to special touches by Danica! She was excellent to work with, so friendly and accommodating. The condo was perfect for 5 of us plus a 6 month old baby, and Danica even had a t-shirt made with my granddaughters name! My son was touched by that 😁 Location is perfect just steps from parking and pools and also the beautiful beach. We will definitely stay here in this unit again, but I’m sure all of Danica’s units are wonderful! You won’t be disappointed! Thanks Danica for a great stay in FL!!

We love this condo!

We stayed in C505 and I can not say enough good things about Waterscape and booking with Danica! She made it super easy throughout the entire booking process, goes above and beyond with being informative about the condo, activities etc. The view from the balcony is phenomenal! This room overlooks the pool as well as the ocean in the background. Even being on the 5th floor in C building the walk to the pools is not far at all. The kids loved the entire trip. We are already in the mentions of booking with Danica again for the spring.

Sawyer Vaca Getaway!

This condo and resort exceeded our expectations! There was so much room for my family of 6 to enjoy and be comfortable without being on top of each other. The sleep number beds were so comfy! The balcony and view was the best part! My husband and I def relaxed there drinking coffee and watching the ocean waves! The pools, splash pads, and hot tubs were clean and beautiful! The kids had such a great time. We will absolutely plan on staying here again next year! 10/10 recommended.

Amazing Family Vacation!!!

Danica is the best!! We had an amazing experience booking through her and will continue to book with her again! She is the best host with the nicest properties and accommodations! She surprised by husband with cake and decorations on his birthday when we were out on the boat. She provided a cooler, wagon and plenty of beach toys which made packing and traveling to the beach and pool so much easier! Thank you Danica for the amazing experience and trip that our family will remember for a lifetime!

Girls Trip

We did an all girls trip from ages 40 to ?? Who really needs to know our ages. lol. We all had so much fun. Our group had some who preferred the pool, some the beach. The resort had something for all of us. We relaxed in the lazy river and even took a try at the pool obstacle course. Other guests cheered us on as we entertained them. A wonderful time was had by all. Can't wait to plan another!

Phenomenal Week at C505

If you have any doubts about staying here let me help sway your decision. Go ahead and book with Danica! You will save yourself a bunch of fees by booking under her (the owner) and C505 is lovely. The beds rivaled our own bed at home, which was great. Unlike previous condo experiences Danica immediately took care of any problems with the unit. She left my girls sand buckets with their names on them and had music playing when we arrived. This unit is a quick walk to the parking garage for loading and unloading and the unit has a breath taking view. Don't forget to lay on the hammock on the patio. The kitchen was fully stocked so don't worry about bringing any extras with you. Never once did my girls say they were bored. They loved the pirate show and all the activities at Waterscape. We also rotated between lazy river, pool and beach. My only complaint was that we had to go home. Thanks Danica for making it a great week!

This is becoming addictive haha

This was our 3rd year in a row at Waterscape. Danica is always so helpful and friendly! She keeps you informed of events going on in the area and at Waterscape so you get the most out of your visit. You can't beat the view or the amenities at Waterscape. We will be back next year!

Annual Spring Break Vacation

Danica, thank you for your hospitality for our annual spring break vacation. We really enjoyed the beautiful views in the condo. Looking out at that ocean with sailboats and kites in the air was breathtaking! Delicious food all close by. Came home rested and lots of great memories. Hope to come back soon!!!🦎🌴🐬

Spring Break

If you are wanting a nice, clean friendly place to stay then you need to rent from Danica at Waterscape rentals. She is so great to work with and her Condos are SO nice. Everything is decorated nicely and you have ALL the comforts of home. We so enjoyed are week and can't wait to return.

Great place for families!

The pools and shared areas are beautiful and well cared for. We loved the quick elevators and clean hallways. The condo was so cozy, and perfectly clean. The host definitely goes the extra mile to make it perfect!

We stayed on the 5th floor and it was amazing! Had a great view of the ocean and heated pool with parking literally ouside our door which was so convenient. Kids loved the pirate show too! It was great to show up with groceries already there and also a personalized gift! Thank you Danica for such a great stay. We will be back!

Danica is the best

We had an amazing time at Waterscape. Working with Danica is always a pleasure! She really goes all out to make sure you have the best experience. She even left little gifts for our children (beach buckets and towels!) We have tried other condos but keep coming back to Danica as no one else compares.

Retirement in full gear!

Waterscape is a premium resort. Pools and a lazy river too. I could exercise and enjoy the heated pool and hot tubs with no waiting. Great restaurants close by without the Destin traffic. If you ever even think about a snowbird special or just a week of fun and beach come on down and let Danica fix you up! I'll be back for sure!

Wonderful Vacation

We had a wonderful vacation over fall break. Waterscape has something for everyone and it's made even better by renting through Danica. We try to stay in C505, which is where we stayed this year, because the view is great (you get to see a little of everything - ocean, pools, palm trees, etc.), the balcony has a hammock, and parking is right outside your door in a covered garage. Danica thinks of everything and then some, and is so helpful with any questions you may have before, during, or after your stay. We utilized the grocery service this year and it was awesome to arrive to the condo with a stocked fridge. I sound like a broken record by now, lol, but Danica is the BEST and we are so happy we found her years ago. I asked my daughter if she wanted me to say anything in the review. Here's her answer: "Literally. The. Best. Mic drop." Yep, that about sums it up.

Perfect as always!

We stayed in a new unit for our 2nd trip with Danica this year, C505. We had a great view of the whole complex and the Gulf! As always Danica is super responsive to messages and even managed to get us in a little early since we were already in town visiting family! Perfect as always!

Highly recommend booking here!

Danica was great to work with and saved me so much money in fees when compared to other companies! She allowed for an early check in (and this is unheard of from “the other guys”)! The lighting and beach music playing was so inviting when we walked into our condo and she even gave us a monogrammed beach bag.. a personal touch I never expected! The condo was spotless, the beds were perfect with the sleep number mattresses, and the decorations were so beachy! I highly recommend booking through waterscape rentals by owner!

Family fun!

It's always nice to walk in to your condo and find a small gift from the person you rent from. Danica is always on top of things especially when she is needed for emergencies. Consider renting from her and her family. They treat you like family! Thank you Danica, we hope to visit again soon!

Awesome Vacay

We had an awesome time at Waterscape! This was our second year booking with Danica (always so responsive to any questions!) and we will definitely book with her again. The grandchildren are already planning for next summer! Our condo (C505) was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. We had easy access to parking/unloading and a gorgeous view of the resort and the beach. This is an amazing place to make memories for a lifetime-you will not regret booking here and booking with Danica!

Fabulous Condo

We loved our stay in C505! The room was very spacious and CLEAN! There was more than enough room to accommodate our family comfortably. Our view from the balcony was beautiful! The condo had extra beach chairs, wagon, umbrellas, and beach toys which was great! The pool was perfect for families and children! The pool deck also had several fun activities for the children! I highly recommend this place for your next trip! 😊

We worked with Danica directly to book our vacation and really enjoyed having a direct contact for our trip. She made everything so easy including booking, check-in, and check-out and was responsive to any questions. The condo was very clean, comfortable and included all the necessities we needed for the trip and made traveling with our little ones (1 & 2) so easy. I would highly recommend working with Danica and this condo/resort. We will definitely be back!

Florida sun on an Illinois farmers tan!

Our experience at Waterscapes was absolutely amazing! This was the first time our kids have seen the ocean and they loved every minute of it. Danica made the whole booking experience easy and stress free. The resort was well kept and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend anyone looking for a great Florida experience to contact Danica and get your trip booked!

Amazing condo with so many perks!

We could not have been more pleased with the condo, resort, or Danica! Everything was as pictured and better! We stayed in C505 and it was perfect. The parking garage was so convenient for unpacking and packing up. The walk to the pool/beach was easy (thanks to the wonderful directions from Danica). The condo was clean, stocked, spacious, and the view was great! The only complaint I have is that our stay wasn't longer!! The Sleep Number beds were comfortable and the umbrella and chairs set up each day on the beach were a huge plus!

Danica was so easy to work with and even had a welcome gift and groceries waiting for us on arrival!

Truly Amazing!

I cannot say enough about how amazing our stay was! Clean, every detail you could think of, all of the amenities included with our favorite being the beach wagon and all of the beach toys and floats. We save so much room in our car by not having to pack this stuff each year! Our kids LOVED their personalized beach buckets and it’s such a nice extra touch that you definitely won’t get many other places!

Tons of Fun!

First time to this this part of Florida. Visited with 3 kids. Came looking for relaxing week and got exactly that. Condo was clean, had all the amenities one could ask for. Was very impressed with how Danica cared that visitors enjoyed their stay. She is an amazing communicator; would receive text, voice or email responses within minutes of sending. Condo has everything that is needed for comfortable stay, extra blankets, games, beach accessories, tv that was easy to set up. Of all owner managed properties I've rented, this is the best experience I've had. Will definitely return.

Loved it!

I cannot say enough good things. Loved booking through Danica! This was our second visit to Waterscape, but first time using Danica and it was 100 times better; I will only book through her now (and I’ve already booked for next year)! She was available for questions whenever I had them in the booking process and was super responsive. The room was super clean and well stocked with things we needed for our trip. And the information she sent before we left was so helpful, as was her Facebook page. The ocean view of C505 made the rainy weather more tolerable (Not that anyone wants storms during their beach vacation). Her recommendations were spot on too; and we enjoyed the guest book and took ideas from it for things to do. My nephew loved the putt putt and ice cream across the street; and the younger kids loved the activities Danica had planned weekly. We also enjoyed being able to park right outside our room - it made unpacking/shopping/packing so much easier. I’m already counting down to next years stay!

Family-friendly Beach Oasis

Everything was great! Really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful resort. Our first time visiting this island specifically and we definitely choose the best spot and host to stay with. Great amenities and loved the ease of going to the beach with the wagon and supplies. Thanks for being awesome Danica! Traveling with two young children, our stay was a dream! Everything was convenient, organized, and clean. Danica had all the things we needed to enjoy our beach time. The pools on the property were incredible. We didn't even do that much in the area because the Waterscape property was *that* good!

We loved Waterscape. Danica was great to work with she took care of every detail and everything was exactly like she said, (no unpleasant surprises). My husband and I have traveled 48 states and he made the comment that Danica’s condo was the cleanest place we had ever stayed. We will be back. Tennessee Visitors-Harry and Evaline

Best Spring Break Ever!!

This is our second year in a row staying at Waterscape through Danica. It is truly an amazing resort for kids and adults. So many amazing restaurants and also so convenient to just cook in the condo or grill! Danica is also so helpful and great to work with! We will definitely be back soon!!

Best rental lady ever!

Not only did we walk into our beautiful unit welcomed by beach music, there was the CUTEST surprise ever ❤️. Danica has been by far the most attentive person for a rental that I have ever had! (In a good way, not over bearing!) She went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. Our unit was cute, clean, over stocked with items, and BEACH READY!

Pure Bliss

This is our 3rd year visiting Waterscape and 2nd renting with Danica. Renting from her is the only way to go. Her condos are fully stocked with everything you need for an enjoyable stay, super clean and kid friendly. She responds super fast if there are any questions or needs while you are there. The whole process is seemless and stress free. Couldn't recommend Danica and Waterscape Rentals by Owner more! You won't regret it!

Fun in Florida

Waterscape resort is an excellent place for fun and sun. The location offers easy access to great restaurants and entertainment. Their heated pool was nice and warm. Danica was a great person to rent from. She is so pleasant and attentive to all our needs. Even got a boat ride! It was cool but fun seeing harbor life. Would have loved to have warmer temperatures in the beginning of the month, but mother nature didn't warm up until later in the month. Keep up the good work Danica!

Winter Getaway

The condo was laid out perfectly and equipped with just about everything that you need. Several pools and play areas for the kids of all ages. The beach was easy to access and the condo also had a beach wagon and chairs for us to use. I'm telling you this owner thought of everything for the tenant. The weather didn't cooperate but we still enjoyed our stay. Definitely recommend!

Fantastic Fall Break

A beach trip for fall break was just what we needed. We have stayed at Waterscape for years and nothing beats it and the service you get when you rent from Danica. Everything you could need when traveling with kids is there for you. From high chairs to pack n plays to extra beach toys, she has it covered. The units are always expertly cleaned and our favorite touch is the beach music playing as soon as we walk in. This unit C505 has great views and easy access to the kid splash zone and pools. This was our first time staying in October and the sunsets did not disappoint. Highly recommend fitting this into your family schedule! Can't wait to go back!

OVER 5 stars!!

We absolutely loved our stay at Waterscape this year and booking through Danica was a breeze! The condo was perfect (we stayed in C505)! It was stocked with everything we needed and then some. Even with the “C” building being the furthest back from the beach, the views were still beyond incredible (and unobstructed) and being able to park literally right outside the condo is more than worth being a little further back. I will choose this same condo over others again in the future simply for that convenience. Danica sends you ALL the information you will need (make sure to read her Owner’s Tips!) to make your stay as stress free as possible. The beach service being included is also a huge perk along with all of the beach gear already provided in the condo. This was the first time I’ve ever gone to the beach (and we go several times a year) that I haven’t had to run out to buy beach gear other than a few toys the kids specifically wanted. The Waterscape resort itself was wonderful with plenty to keep the kids occupied (the pool/lazy river/tiki hut being SO close to the beach is WONDERFUL when you have older kids that can just go back and forth by themselves!!). And the restaurants right across the street 🤤 OMG. They were amazing!! This was hands down our favorite condo AND resort that we’ve ever stayed at! Don’t hesitate to book! There’s a reason Danica’s rentals stay booked and all of the above is just a small fraction of those reasons! Thanks for everything, Danica!! We will be back next year!!

We have been renting from Danica for several years now - and will take whatever unit she has available - because her units are clean, she provides pretty much everything you can think of and then some, and she goes out of her way to make everything stress free for her guests. We particularly like C505 because we like having a view of everything: the pools, landscaping, and ocean. We also like that the C building has a covered garage for parking and our vehicle is practically right outside our door. We love staying at Waterscape because it has something for everyone, and it is a very relaxing place. Our days usually start at the beach and end at the pools. Danica offers premium beach service and provides extra equipment you can take to the beach with you. She also includes an hour of paddle boarding or kayaking each day - for free! My daughter and her friend took advantage of paddle boarding daily and it was their very favorite part of vacation. One day, there were several dolphins within 10 feet of their paddle board. Of course they thought this was SUPER cool! If you are looking to vacation somewhere that has something for everyone, your top priority is relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends, and you want a worry-free/hassle-free booking process, look no further. Reach out to Danica now! You will not regret it. Seriously, I do not typically take the time to write reviews, but I have always written one for her and any of her units where we have stayed. She is the BEST! Thank you for another wonderful vacation, Danica!!! <3

Fantastic Beach Vacay!

We frequent the Waterscape (every year since 2015) and we always have an amazing time! It's impossible not to with the pools, lazy river, beach access, Fudpuckers on site, many places for activities, shopping, food... the list goes on! Danica's condo was especially sweet for young children with a cart, toys, and everything thought of, laid out, clean, and organized! It was nice to have the free kayak rentals too, huge plus!!!

Delightful Amenities

We have stayed at Waterscape at least once a year for the past 7 years. This unit has more amenities than any other place I stood in here. From the salt and pepper to the beach cart, Danica did not spare anything. Thank you for everything and always answering my text.

Loved it!

Ms. Danica's condo was extremely beautiful and my family and I were extremely pleased with our stay. I recommend her condos to anyone who is going to fort Walton Beach Florida; they're very fair priced. She is an extremely good host and the services that she provide are top notch. Thank you very much for your condo Ms. Danica.

Fun family vacay!

I rented two condos from Danica for a week. The condos were very nice and clean. They really have everything you would need. I am usually running to the store for soap or dishwasher things in the middle of the week but not here. I was impressed that there was even a very nice waffle iron, my iron travels with me cause I've never seen one in a rental lol, and large mixer in the kitchen. But my biggest impression is how Danica handles everything. She is always there if you need her. The patio light was out and after texting her, I found her there changing the bulb herself. Renting from her was great and we will hopefully be returning again next summer. Thank you Danica!

Our Happy Place

We spent an awesome week in C505 Waterscape in Fort Walton… The condo was perfect for us. It included wagon full or beach toys, a beach cart and the kids were greeted with personalized sand buckets!!! Kitchen was fully stocked and condo included a high chair and pack n play… Our days were filled with swimming and playing at the resort and beach. The baby napped everyday floating with mommy or daddy in the lazy river. The grandkids said it was the best day ever!!! Everyday! We used the grocery delivery service offered by Danica. We walked into a refrigerator full!! We are already planning out next trip!! Thanks for the great memories!!

Danica is the Best!

Danica is wonderful to work with and makes vacation easy!! She has everything you need stocked. We stayed in C505 again, it is literally just steps from the car to the condo door. There is something at Waterscape for all ages and with the beach being steps away there's no need to leave the property. Danica is the best and we can't wait to come back for a 4th time...soon!!! Danica it was so nice to finally meet you in person. Thank you again for everything!!!

We were really blown away at our little condo. C505 was amazing for my family of 6. With all that was stated in the description, there was no need to bring anything but our luggage. The condo had a beach wagon filled with toys and a beach cart filled with an extra umbrella and chairs. When we arrived to the condo, we were early so we went out to the beach until our room was ready. Danica texted an hour before the check in time, so we were able to get in a little early which was nice. Kitchen had everything we needed. Music was playing and the most clean and pleasant smell filled the rooms as we walked in. Personalized sand toys we’re waiting for my children which was incredibly sweet and personal. The only person to rent at waterscape is Danica. The bed were amazing as well. We also loved our bath tub in the master suite. The hammock was a nice touch as well. It was a great view even from the C building which is in the back. We loved not having far at all to walk after parking. Also, there were always umbrellas and chairs at the beach available, plenty of floats for the lazy river, and always chairs at the pool. Pool staff was amazing and friendly as well. We also never had a problem finding an available grill to use. They were always clean too! The splash pad was my family’s favorite place to be also. 10/10 recommend Waterscape, Danica, and C505.

Paradise in Fort Walton

We had an amazing time at waterscape in fort Walton this past week The grandkids loved playing in the pool, there is so much for them to do. The condo was great, furnished with everything you need for cooking plus more. The sleep number beds are perfect for everyone. You choose what number you like to sleep on. The bunk room for the kids is always a hit.

Amazing Family Location!!

Such a fantastic location! Great things for families to do. The condo is perfectly appointed. So nice to have many of the things that otherwise we would have to bring for a beach condo. Soaps, little toiletries, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrella, even a boogie board. The beach umbrella service and kayak and paddleboard were a huge hit. We loved the Wednesday night fireworks. Great location. Super attentive and helpful and conscientious owner.

Perfect beach trip

Danica made checking in and out a breeze! She offered information and tips on anything you could think of. The condo was perfect and we didn't want for anything.

THIS PLACE. At the end of vacations, or "trips" as well call it when the kiddos come, I am exhausted and ready to be home. This time, I didn't want to leave! It's so beautiful, so kid friendly, & EASY. Right outside our condo were four pools, including a toddler zero entry pool where we spend most of our time. My daughter loved loved the lazy river float pool. We basically got to sit back and watch them play which is typically unheard of with littles at the pool. Sunscreen, floaties, life jacket, done. There were gas grills poolside and this time of year there's always lounge chairs and open space. The beach & ocean are steps away from the pool. Waterscape/beach service actually sets up chairs and umbrella for you, ready to go when you walk down! You just pick a spot. Ours was condo C505-- it had beach carts and a wagon to haul whatever we needed. It was very helpful having a high chair and pack n play readily available in the condo as well. Thank you, Danica, for the t-shirts. Our kiddos made many wonderful memories and we will be back next year!

Sun time fun time

When we arrived at c505 we were greeted by a wonderfully clean and beautiful unit. The kids loved the bunk room as did I my room. Kitchen was fully stocked. Waterscapes has so much to do as well as access directly to the beach. This was the best vacation ever. We will be back.

Nothing short of amazing!

AMAZING! What a wonderful experience, both Waterscape Resort and Danica, the owner of C505. Our family couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Danica is the best!

What a pleasure it was to stay at Waterscape and work with Danica! She is the best owner I’ve ever worked with when going on vacation! The rooms were beautiful and clean. The amount of detail and guidance she gives leading up to the trip and throughout the stay is unlike anything I’ve experienced! If you are traveling with a baby or young children, this is the place for you! She has high chairs and pack n plays in the room as well as sand toys and a very convenient wagon! Takes away the need to pack a lot of big items! The pools are great for young kids!

I started looking at rentals for my Mother’s Day present many, many months ago and came across one of Danica’s unit by luck and I am SO glad I did! I reached out to her asking about the rate and she answered within minutes. She followed with pictures and helpful info and within minutes I knew it was the perfect rental unit for my family. We just got home today from our trip and it was perfect! The unit was beautiful just as described, Danica was amazing, very helpful and had beautiful turtle bags waiting on my girls which amazed them ☺️. The view was perfect, the kitchen was very well stocked and the wagon was super helpful! Thanks Danica for helping make my Mothers Day perfection! 🥰

Highly recommended!

We stayed in unit C505. When we arrived there was mellow beach music playing and the unit smelled great. Our balcony was very roomy; we kept the doors open most of the time. We could see the Gulf, and the sound from the resort water features was very nice. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. We used the poolside gas grills a couple times - there were plenty available. Having two bathrooms was great with teenagers. It was a wonderful trip and I will definitely recommend Danica and Waterscapes Resort. (This was our first trip to the area and she provided very helpful information about the area and the resort.)

First Trip. SCORE!

This was our first visit to the Gulf with our kids. I did a TON of research of where I wanted to stay of Destin vs Fort Walton. Waterscape had a ton of great reviews and Danica had a ton of great reviews as well. We were not disappointed! The condo was beautiful and the kitchen was well stocked! We were in unit C505 and my kids cannot wait to go back. Danica answered all my questions and gave us all the information we could possibly need prior to our vacation. I’d 100% come back! We can’t wait!

Had a great time here!

We visited over spring break and had the best time! The amenities were our favorite. Being right on the beach, the splash pad, heated pool, lazy rivers, and hot tubs had something for everyone. The condo had everything that we needed and more! Danica communicated well with us and made us feel so welcome. Her hospitality and thoughtfulness was wonderful! We will definitely go back.

We loved C505!

We stayed in C505. The condo was great and the view of the pools and ocean were fantastic. We also loved the fact that the parking was just outside of the door (it made carrying in groceries a breeze). Danica was amazing. She was very responsive to any and all messages, she definitely thought of everything and even made sand buckets for each of our kids! The condo included a wagon, beach cart, beach chairs, and a beach umbrella which were very useful to getting all of our stuff to the pool and beach. Waterscape had tons of amenities to keep the kids occupied. It had a splash pad for the littles, a large heated pool, a lazy river, Lilly pad obstacle course, and hot tubs. We can’t wait to go back!

Fun family getaway!!

Waterscape is definitely a redo family vacation!! Our family enjoyed everything it had to offer, condo spacious and fully equipped having everything you could need while on vacation. The pool areas were very family friendly, the beach access was convenient, clean, and well organized. Would highly recommend staying here for family getaway to Florida.

Great visit from NE

Not sure the amenities on the property can be matched elsewhere. The pools, hots tubs, beach access/service were just what this family from NE was craving. The beach wagon was so convenient to haul all our gear. Danica was so responsive to any and all questions we had prior to and during our stay.
While Danica is upfront about what is included (TONS) and what isn't...those few things caught us off guard even though we knew about them.
We can't wait to plan our next visit!

We had a really great time and was blown away right off the bat when we got to the unit and saw how very big and nice that it was. We have stayed in other condos but they were tiny in comparison. It was also special noting that the starter pack of paper towels andctoilet tissue was REAL and not some cheap brand that would disintegrate when it got wet. The weather was perfect for beach side sitting and having the beach chairs and umbrella provided was a great plus. The amenities with the beautiful landscaping and numerous pool options especially for kids are top notch. Will definitely be looking to come back here in the future.

Snowbird Heaven

Waterscape Resort is a great year round vacation destination! We just spent 2 months there and loved every minute. Danica is the perfect owner/manager. The units have all the comforts of home. The heated pool is wonderful and the beach is powdery, fluffy, white sand. This location is close to shopping and restaurants but not in the mainstream traffic. You can't go wrong!!

Best vacation spot

My family and I decided last minute to book a trip. We had been to Waterscape before, but rented through another company. I did some research and found Danica. I'm so glad we did! She was such a pleasure to work with. The booking process was so smooth. We rented C505 and let me tell you, it was spotless! The condo was equipped with all your beach needs and who doesn't want to sleep on a sleep number bed?! We will definitely be booking again. The resort itself if great! It has something for everyone! We loved spending the morning at the beach, then lounging by the pool or floating around the lazy river! If you book with Danica you will not be disappointed. This vacation was just what our family needed! Thank you for the great hospitality!!!

New Waterscapers!

We arrived to our condo with music playing and a nice gift for our grandson. We weathered Hurricane Sandy in C505. We spent 2 days hanging out in the condo, enjoying family time. We had everything we needed in the condo. Once the weather cleared we enjoyed the kiddie area with our grandson and the beautiful beach. As soon as the weather was clear the staff at Waterscape immediately started cleaning up the debris. The owner stayed in contact with us and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend renting from Rentwaterscape.com. Beautiful condo, beautiful complex and an awsome owner.

Best condo we've stayed in

We have been staying at the waterscape resort now for 10 years. We have stayed in multiple condos and rented from multiple owners. I have looked at Danica’s condos for the last several years and they are always booked for our dates( she stays full because of how awesome she is) This year we hit the jackpot! She had one come open for our exact dates. From the beginning she was a pleasure to work with. Always prompt in responding to questions. The condo was so organized and had everything we needed. It was over and above stocked. By far the BEST condo we have stayed in. It was so wonderful that we have already booked a return stay to make sure we can get one of her condos. She has thought of every little detail. Her detailed list and information is perfect. Even for long time waterscape renters, we found helpful tips and info that was valuable. If you are looking for a carefree and easy vacation rental, I highly recommend Danica and any of her condos!

Best place EVER!

The pictures just don't do this place justice. The decor is super cute and has the feeling of being home. Everything you need for a fun vacation are provided. Plenty to do within a short walk or drive. The amenities are amazing. The property is very clean. We loved having the beach so close. Danica (the owner) is so nice and available. We can't wait to go back. This will definitely be our go to Ft. Walton home away from home.

The Portwood Family Beach Trip

We absolutely loved the Condo and Waterscape from the moment we arrived! Danica had already worked with me on so many things! (I can't walk long distances, this was our first vacation with our 6 month old grandchild) I could say it was the little things that were so wonderful.. the gift basket personalized for our family, the pack-n-play and high chair already in the condo, the iPod playing when we arrived. But, the pool, E's first time in the lazy river, watching my boys attempt to kayak in the ocean, these were all examples of the great memories made. I recommend this condo and Danica over and over! Thank you Danica for Everything! We will be back!!

Karen F.

yes, Yes, YES!

AMAZING! Danica does an outstanding job making sure you have a wonderful stay! The Condo was very clean and was well stocked with everything you would need. Loved the beach chairs and umbrella provided. The grounds were beautiful, our grandchildren enjoyed the pool and access to the beach was easy. I will definitely be booking with Danica again!

Wish we could stay LONGER!

The only bad thing is we didn’t stay more days! Everything you need is there!! Danica is very responsive to any questions you have. This condo is the best option if you have kids. The condominium has a great toddler pool. Very clean condo as well the building. Definitely next year we will be there!!

The only owner you'll need!

Danica's condo is great. Service is beyond believable. She takes all the guesswork out of the trip - her info letter before arrival gets you in safely and you can follow her directions straight to the pool including every turn needed. The attention to detail with her labeling of light switches, cabinet shelves, and drawers is amazing. Shout out to the house cleaner too. Condo was super clean but the shower doors-wish I knew her trick. Thanks for a super weekend.

The only owner you'll need!

Our family just returned from Fort Walton Beach. We stayed at Waterscape, rent by owner Danica Connell. If you are planning a trip for your family, this owner is a must!!! Very helpful and informative about anything Fort Walton. Condo very clean and organized!! We normally drive, but this time we flew. Danica provided all the essentials for the best beach experience!! Umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, coolers and even a beach cart! The pools are amazing as well. Fun for all ages. With several grills along poolside, we were able to cook while enjoying pool time with the kids. We will definitely be contacting Danica in the future for our family vacations. 5 stars all the way⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!

Thoughtfulness goes a long way

We spent a week and the thoughtfulness in the details was more than apparent. The condo was set up to welcome us straight into that vacation feel. Danica was incredibly kind, thoughtful and responsive prior, during, and post our stay.

Loaded and Spotless

We just returned from a 5 night stay in C505. The unit was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay. The chairs, cart, umbrella, and beach toys were a added bonus as we did not have to bring ours or buy any. Waterscapes grounds were beautiful, elevators were fast and clean. With parking on the same level you only have a short walk to your room which is great with kids. It made coming and going so much easier! I would recommend this unit to anyone and we will definitely be returning! The owner is fast to answer any questions or address any issues. We were even surprised with a beautiful personalized welcome basket full of goodies. No detail was left out! Thanks again for a wonderful stay to our vacation!

Perfect Getaway!

Just returned from our second stay in one of Danica's condos at Waterscape. Once again, it was a stress-free vacation and we enjoyed making memories with our family. This time we stayed in C505. Our girls loved the pink bunk room and we loved the view! We slept like a rock on the sleep number bed. It's so nice to have a kitchen fully stocked with anything you might need. The provided beach chairs and cooler were so convenient. No need to buy sand toys or boogie boards, they are already there too. Local restaurants have never been crowded on our trips, and many are within walking distance. We love The Gulf and Stewby's! Our only complaint this trip is we did not stay long enough. We will be back!

Awesome hospitality

Danica and her housekeeper are the best. This is our third year in Destin but first with Danica. We will not go anywhere else and have already booked with her next year! Condo is awesome very clean. We were let in very early as they are on top of things. They provide so many things we weren't offered before like beach chairs umbrella etc. view is awesome and easy access to pool and beach. Welcome treats were appreciated. We give her a 5 star...not one bad thing we could say. Also beaches are open so come on down!!

Amazing Beach Family Getaway with All You need

This was our first time visiting the Destin area and it was fabulous! I must say that what really made our trip was renting one of Danica's cute, clean, organized, fun condos! I found her as I was research stalking Facebook and her reviews were wonderful! From our initial contact she was sweet, flexible, and personable! When we arrived we were welcomed into our clean and fresh "beach bungalow" with beach music which made everyone more excited to be there than we already were. The kitchen had everything we needed and no need to pack chairs and an umbrella and/or a beach cart as it was all there waiting for us! This was our first trip to the area, but not our last and we will always rent from Danica!!

Where do I begin? This vacation was amazing from start to finish. Let me first say that Danica is the most communicative host I have ever encountered in all of our travels. She had every detail down and is meticulous about making sure everything is perfect for our stay. C505 was spotless and easily the nicest place we have stayed at on the beach. The condo was spacious, beds were comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked. And the balcony and hammock were enjoyed every morning for coffee and evening wind down. And the views!! Loved looking out and seeing the ocean. Our children loved the bunk room most of all! The resort itself is perfect for families with lots of areas to play and relax. It was busy the weekend we went, but it did not detract from the great experience we had. I recommend renting from Danica 100%, and we will be reaching out to her for our next beach vacay. Thanks again!

Wonderful trip to beach

We love staying at waterscape C505. It's finishings are wonderful and the owner thought of everything you would need for your vacation including umbrellas and chairs. The pool area has everything you want for your children. The condo is convenient to parking and to the beach. Oh and the sleep number beds are perfect for sleeping, better than Your bed at home. It's a perfect choice for vacation.

The place to ourselves!

Wow! Saw Danica's post on fb, booked vacation in April COVID happened Danica refunded us all our $$ then gave us the opportunity to reschedule for later with some extra special rates due to the virus circumstances. Not only was the unit so gorgeous, so was the view and the resort. Danica did not cut corners or go cheap on anything. I felt the unit and everything in it was very nice quality and high end. It was also very clean, because of covid we felt like we had the whole resort to ourselves, which was so nice!!!! My favorite things about the unit:
Everything is labeled including light switches. And my personality just loves that.
Sleep number beds, every one slept so freakin good.
Clean clean clean
Had literally everything we needed.
Tv in rooms
Favorite things about the owner
Very organized, very detailed, very personable, communication a level 10, seems to put her heart into the units and our vacation experience. Wants to save you $.
Favorite things about the resort:
Clean, things for my toddler and teenagers, beach gorgeous. Everything walkable, staff very friendly, park in front of unit and no stairs. Close to Publix. First time to Destin and loved it so much. Will most certainly be back. And won't stay anywhere else but at Waterscape. And will only rent from Danica.

Too much fun in the Sun

I took my grandkids and adult son the Danica's condo. It was beautiful and very clean! When we walked in there was music playing on the iPod. The girls loved the bunk bed area! The other two beds were great too! The pools were awesome and they loved the lazy river pool! We will definitely rent again!! Thanks!

Highly Recommend! ☆☆☆☆☆

Highly Recommend! We were scheduled to visit Danica's Waterscape Condo in May and due to this unforeseen pandemic that hit our country, we had to cancel our trip. She has been so understanding and accommodating about refunding our deposit. She's a true professional and genuinely cares about her renters. We cannot wait to reschedule this trip with her. Thanks Danica! ❤

Waterscape C505 is awesome!

We LOVE renting from Danica. Not only is she amazing, but she pays attention to every last detail. She easy to communicate with and makes sure we are treated well. The condo was not only spotless, but exceeded our expectations as always. The resort was AMAZING! Clean and very upscale. The beach is just a quick walk from the room and the pools are pristine. We will be back as soon as we can!

Spring Break Family Trip

Danica was a joy to work with. She was very helpful and answered all our questions quickly. We stayed in unit C505 and it was very well appointed. She has thought of everything a family might need. Waterscape is very family friendly. This was our second stay at this resort. Danica's unit was very clean and well taken care of. You won't be disappointed!

Owner Response: This was a very fun family for me. People named "Danica" are few and far between. I have only met one other Danica in my lifetime. It was the second email she sent when I noticed it was HER signature of Danica, not mine. I did a double take and then called her out. Haha. It turns out she has the exact initials as I do... Is that not just so fun?!?!

Wonderful Vacation!!

First time Destin travelers! We stayed in C505 can’t say enough about all the details that Danica puts into making Waterscape be an experience. Don’t let the 5th floor bug you as the parking goes all the way up so you don’t have to make the dreaded haul like other places we have gone to. Danica has everything in the details but for those that don’t read them all, take the wagon to floor 1 and walk through the parking garage. You will thank me.

After our 3rd year of staying at Danicas Waterscape Heaven, there's no place we would rather relax and enjoy the sunshine! The condos have all of the comforts and conveniences of home. The beach is beautiful and the pools are great! There's very easy access to restaurants, grocery stores and entertainment. Danica is the best, caring for any issue!! ❤❤❤🌴🌞😁

Best place in Ft Walton

We stayed at Waterscape in C505 for a week and we didn't have a need that wasn't met. The condo was very well stocked, clean, neatly decorated and made for a family. The kids loved the buckets she had personally made for them waiting when we arrived. We actually recommended the condo to a family that we met at Waterscape on our trip. Danicas hospitality is one of a kind, it's great! She is there for you from the time of booking until the morning of check out with any questions you may have and replies quick. The pools were amazing and the beach had easy access as well. We will stay here again in the future and I'd recommend you to as well ... you will NOT be disappointed.

Best vacation!!

This was our 3rd year staying at waterscape but our first year renting directly from the owner. Danica was amazing to rent from! She was very thorough and covered EVERYTHING!!! The room was very clean! She had beach chairs, umbrella and wagon available in the room! She was readily available to ask questions about attractions. She made sure we had an awesome time. She even had personalized gifts for the kids!!! The room had sleep number beds and an iPod with radio which was very nice! I loved how the kitchen was labeled where everything is stored so you didn't have to guess on putting things back in their place. We will be back for sure!!

Family Vacation

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay - from the condo to the beach, everything was amazing! The view was wonderful, and having the choices of a lazy river, pools and the ocean was great for our 2 teenage girls. All of the extras that Danica includes in her rental (beach chairs and cart, paddle board, kayak) make for an amazing vacation. We will NEVER be able to go back to a hotel after being pampered like this!

Loved C505!

Absolutely loved C505! The condo was tastefully decorated, fully stocked and equipped with everything we needed, and immaculate. I am picky when choosing a vacation rental and with this one I had no regrets. Waterscapes was the perfect place for our family including two boys under 3. There was so much to do that we rarely left the property. Danica was exceptional to work with also. She made all the planning so easy and was available any time I had a question. Super informative about the condo, rental details, and all the ins and outs of Waterscapes. I’ve never had an owner that was so thoughtful. When we arrive there was a beach sand bucket and shovel for each child with there names on it!! It was truly a great experience from start to finish.

Family trip to Florida

Condo was beautiful, clean, right on the beach, and the resort was perfect for our family trip! Couldn't of asked for a better environment, was a little less hustle and bustle than Destin but still close enough to Destin to enjoy there as well. Crab Island was the highlight of our trip! There was nothing more that I could've asked for that wasn't available!

Amazing Resort and Condo!

Everything about this resort was amazing! The condo was very clean and we loved the decor! It was fully stocked with everything you would ever need - and more. The organization of the items was impressive, with everything being labeled so you knew exactly where to put items. The parking outside the unit made it very easy to unload/load and was convenient when we went out. Our favorite were the chairs, umbrella, and beach cart provided. Working with Danica was a wonderful experience. Starting from the booking through checking out, she kept in touch with us. We will be back again!

Loved our stay here!

We loved our stay with Waterscape Rentals by Owner. The owners think of everything and give you so much detailed info before your arrival. There are so many little touches that make the stay easier and more convenient than a typical condo rental.

Fun in the sun

5+++ stars!! Best place to stay, pools, and access to the beach. Condos comfortable with all the comforts of home. Only problem is that we didn't want to leave. Would and will go back. Thanks Danica!

Fun for Everyone!

This resort was amazing! From the one year old to sixty-five everyone had a blast. The room was decorated so cute and was well stocked with everything we could of ever wanted. The view was fantastic, and the best part was that we never had to leave the resort. We walked to a couple local restaurants and had food delivered to cook in some meals. There was a special spot for everyone to enjoy, but my favorite part was the new friends we made. The views from the balcony were spectacular, and we got a bunch of cute pictures in the hammock. My kids are already planning our visit to return.

Wonderful Stay!

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. It was clean, clutter-free, organized, and more well-supplied than any place we have stayed. The owner is thoughtful of your every need! Our two small children enjoyed the splash pad and pools. We enjoyed using the provided beach cart, wagon, chairs, toys, floats, board games, and DVDs that the owner provides. Parking only steps from the door of the condo is a MAJOR bonus, as well. The whole resort is family-friendly, but we will rent from this particular owner again.

Fun at the beach

Great place to vacation! The pools and the beach we're great. Danica's place was great. Fully stocked with blender, dishes and silverware. I took many items that were already there. I felt completely at home and wished we could stay another week. We will be returning!!!!

No Maintenance This Trip!

What a nice change of pace! We chose Waterscape C505 for our stay because (1) The condo we own on Okaloosa was occupied (2) I needed a break from condo maintenance (3) This place looked awesome! And it was...especially since we were bringing our grandson (9) and his buddy for their spring break trip. The condo's water features were a huge hit and the bunk nook kept them from being underfoot all the time. Danica provides excellent service and her condo is the perfect family option for your beach stay.

Nicest Place on the Gulf!

This is by far the nicest place we have stayed on the gulf. With hurricane Michael threat we were delayed a couple of days however, dealing with Danica Connell has been the best experience ever. These units are privately owned and are beautifully decorated and well taken care of. Everything you can imagine is fully stocked in the condo. Save Service Fees and use the money for your entertainment. We stayed in Waterscape C505 with four 15 year old girls. Plenty of room and privacy and the hammock on the balcony is a plus.

Owner Response: Rita, thank you for noticing the service fees. Not everyone realizes that booking on VRBO (aka vROB) now costs you a couple hundred bucks in "service fees." The owners have no control over this fee and we cannot take you around it, because they hide both our contact info now. It's disgusting. I'm so glad that you booked direct and I encourage everyone to always find the owner and book direct! You will save a chunk of change. And PS. I left VRBO over this mess. It's disgusting that they would put their hand out for that much money when someone books MY property through ME when I do all the work. No thanks!

Fall Time Fun

This is by far the best owner I have had the pleasure of renting from. Danica makes you feel as if she is your very own travel agent-suggestions on where to eat, places to visit and of course about the many wonderful amenities at Waterscape. We rented B112 and loved being only a few steps to the beach and pool! The temperature was a bit cooler but we still had a few beach days and there are many nearby indoor activities! Thank you Danica!!

October Vacations are the Best!

We love staying at Waterscape and in C505. This unit has it all. Beach chairs and umbrella, toys for the kids, rentals provided for paddle boards. My kids were so excited with this complex and this area of the beach. It was all amazing. We can't wait to go back. Thanks Danica for thinking of everything we would need for a great vacation!

Amazing Getaway

We had an amazing time at Waterscape C505. The unit was extremely clean and well stocked with everything that we needed. Danica was so easy to work with and available for any questions that we had. We will definitely recommend this unit to our friends and will look to stay here again in the future.

Toddler paradise!!!

C505 was a beautifully decorated, super clean condo and Danica goes above and beyond to make it feel like “our home away from home!” WaterscapeC505 is a great view of the toddler pool where my 3 year old played hard and had an absolute ball!! It truly is a toddler paradise and great family vacation spot!! Danica made everything super easy from renting, checking in, giving tips and recommendations, and checking out! She is by far the most thorough and the best owner I have ever worked with!! Will definitely recommend WaterscapeC505 and Danica!! Hope to be back in the near future!! Thanks again for helping us make memories that will last a lifetime!!

C505 was a DREAM!

C505 was a DREAM. There are a lot of extras and it’s the little things that all add to up an amazing total package. It was great to have chairs, umbrella, and cart to use and not have to pack all that bulky stuff. Kitchen was well stocked with everything I wanted/needed. I don’t think I realized when booking that we parked in a parking deck. That’s great...but you park on your floor, right in front of your condo door!!!! SUPER easy for loading/unloading, running to car for forgotten items, and not having an elevator ride to leave unit.

Relaxing the Days Away

My family and I had a wonderful time relaxing at the beach. Our kids had so much fun playing at the different pools. The condo was just like home. I would very highly recommend to anyone to stay with Danica during your vacation. You will not be disapoointed.

Awesome Vacation

Our vacation here was awesome! Our condo was decorated so nice, very clean and had everything you could possibly need. Danica was great to work with. She is so organized and helpful. Before we arrived she emailed us a packet with everything and anything that you would need to know. From what is at the condo, great places to visit and eat, even a list of channels on the TV and much much more. She even offers a service that your groceries can be waiting for you when you arrive for a very cheap fee. Which is definitely worth it! No one wants to go grocery shopping when you get to the beach! :) If you have kids this is the place to go. Very kid friendly. There is a lazy river, two pools, lily pads for the kids to climb across. A splash pad with a small water slide. Danica even adds an extra package included in your rental with unlimited paddleboards and kayaks, and provides her own chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Most rentals only give you 1hr a day on the kayak or paddleboard. She really goes above and beyond on making your stay great! I highly recommend booking with her. We just went on vacation there last week and are already planning our vacation to one of her condos next year!

Amazing Week

We recently stayed in unit C505. We had an amazing week. The condo had everything we needed for restful sleep, meals, and beach supplies. The pools and beach area were perfect for our group. We enjoyed and were amazed by our access to kayaks and paddle boards from our beach area. The owner, Danica, was wonderful to work with and seemed genuinely excited for our group to have a fun trip. We will definitely be back!

Highly Recommended!

Trip was amazing! We stayed in C505 and walked into a spotless condo with music playing and an added bonus was the monogrammed beach towels for the kids! The kitchen was well stocked with all pots/utensils needed (except for a rice cooker😉lol south Louisiana needs rice🤣). It was so nice to have our own beach chairs and umbrellas bc you were able to set up exactly where you wanted and not where beach service set up everyone else on top of one another! The paddle board at no additional cost was so nice. Kids had a blast and kept them entertained for hours just trying to stay up. Any questions I had were quickly answered by Danica and I have already booked for next year. I highly recommend her condos- the experience was so easy and can’t wait for our next trip. Thanks again!

Awesome Family Beach Experience

We vacationed at Waterscape C505 for the second time this year and it was fabulous! Not only is the resort amazing, but Dannica really makes the condo a home away from home. We have 2 children and she provides everything needed to make so many wonderful memories from personalized sand buckets upon arrival to a high chair and wagon for transporting everyone and all their stuff to and from the beach. The condo is very nicely furnished and Dannica is very responsive to any questions during the stay. We will certainly be back again!

Paradise Found!

Paradise Found! 5 stars is not enough!! We have stayed in one of Danica's condos for three years now and have year four booked. I cannot say enough about how wonderful every experience has been with Danica and her condos. Having stayed in C205 & C505 I am convinced there is no place better. From opening the door everything has been thought of to ensure a wonderful stay. The condos are clean, organized, and outfitted with anything you could possibly need. Staying here has became our annual beach vacation tradition. We love it, the kids love it, happiness for all. The pools, lazy river, and beach are fantastic. I cannot recommend this place enough. Waterscape is a hidden treasure. We have 2 young boys, ages 3 & 5 this year. Having the pools, lazy river, and beaches steps away provides a great variety of fun. Looking forward to many more years to come!

Amazing Place

What an amazing place! It was so nice to have everything you need right there in the condo for you. Also, the perk of having use of the paddle board and kayaks. Danica was wonderful to work with and even recommended restaurants and activities. Definitely hope to return to this unit again very soon! Great place to make memories with your family and friends.

Best Place we've ever stayed!

These was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The condo was beautiful and the pool and beach access was great. There is a amazing view. The owner was absolutely wonderful to work with. She made everything so easy and kept in contact. I would recommend renting from her to anyone. Great experience and will definitely rent again.

Amazing Stay

Danica was amazing to work with. She answered all of my questions promptly and sweetly! By day 2 of our stay we had already decided to book again next year! Highly recommend her to anyone looking to book. The condo was very well stocked with anything needed to cook or bake while you stayed! Not a negative thing to say about our stay on the property either.

Christmas in C505

We had a wonderful stay over the Christmas and New Year holiday in C505. Danica was so easy to work with from the booking process, throughout our entire stay. The condo was beautiful and very well appointed. We didn't want for anything. The condo has everything so well marked inside, too, it was just extremely easy to stay here. We have been to this area numerous times and stayed at many condos along the coast. But when we return, we will certainly be looking to come back to Waterscape and book with Danica.

Loved it!

Waterscape C505 was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! This is a longer than normal review, but our family stay was so much more than our normal experience. Let's start with booking the unit through the owner, Danica. She is spot on with information regarding any of her three units in this amazing resort complex. She clearly has an understanding of "customer service." She shows a great deal of understanding for those who may have never booked a vacation rental as she clearly details what she offers versus renting through a vacation website, third party management company, or the resort. It's obvious her desire to keep quality high and costs to a minimum that she has done her research and provides such exceptional personal service.

Parking in the deck makes access quick and easy. The unit we enjoyed (C505)was so much more than the already very detailed photo views available on the website. (We were allowed an unique opportunity to peek into the other 2 units before being occupied, as well.) All 3 units were VERY CLEAN, tastefully decorated, and family oriented. Stepping inside the door we were greeted with everything ready. It's as if you would find your hostess waiting for you, ready help to settle you in for the week.

The bunk rooms are a big selling point for the children as they are able to go have their own space that is slightly whimsical, ample for comfort, yet very, very cozy! The two bedrooms were spacious providing all the storage you could possibly need and more. The beds, king or queen, Sleep number beds! There were ample bed linens, pillows, blankets, even a soft, cozy throw for each bedroom.

The bathrooms were large, very clean, and well stocked.

The laundry area inside the unit was so convenient. A beach cart and 4 beach chairs are owner provided with each unit, this eliminates those extra, often budget busting, rental fees from beach services in the high season and leaves less to pack in the vehicle any season!

The kitchen is so well appointed! The appliances are up to date and very clean. Everything I needed was available. Talking with someone in a "commercially managed unit" who described and I quote, "barely having silverware," I knew we had chosen the right path by going with Danica in her unit. In addition to the superior personal service given to us by Danica, All the common areas, including the convenient beach access, were clean, easily accessible, well maintained, and well lit in the evening. The campus security was most of all welcoming, immediately helpful, and always friendly.

There's no place that we have ever stayed in the Destin/Ft. Walton area that even closely compares to the kind of top level service and comfort we experienced by booking directly with a multi-unit owner, Danica, at Waterscape. If you are thinking about going to Ft. Walton any time of the year, act quickly to get in on the best condos without the high fees! Danica's units seem to be quite popular based on reviews written in the unit guest books, and we know why. Our family had already decided to reserve with her again same time next year before the middle of the week!

The Emerald Coast is my favorite Florida destination, I have stayed in numerous condos in the area and C505 is by far my best experience! We were able to park in garage near the condo (no lugging heavy baggage!) The condo smelled and looked heavenly when we entered, housekeeping took an extra effort to make us feel at home.

Simply the Best!

This was our second time staying in C505 at Waterscape, and we absolutely love it! And we're fairly certain that has to do with the owner, Danica. She is wonderful to work with, has thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay, and the unit is so clean and decorated appropriately to get you in a beach vacation mood! As long as we're vacationing in the area, we will always book with Danica at any of her units. She is, quite simply, the BEST!

Perfect Condo for a September Break at the Beach

Every September my family takes a beach trip and I have to say that C505 at Waterscape was one of my top 2 favorite condos ever! Danica, the owner has literally thought of EVERYTHING! The advice, info and documents she provides were super helpful. The condo itself is fabulous! SO clean, well organized, beautifully decorated and with a gorgeous view of the pools and the ocean! The special treats she left for my two children were definitely a highlight and was such a special, personal touch. You cannot go wrong in renting this condo.

Fantastic property, wonderful vacation!

This vacation was our second visit to this property. Three years after our first visit, the condo is still top notch! It truly feels like you are "at home," rather than renting somewhere for a week, due to the owners attention to detail. Wonderfully decorated, everything you could possibly need has been thought of, and most importantly CLEAN. The owner goes above and beyond, and is so easy to work with. I highly recommend this condo, and Waterscape, for those looking for a great family vacation spot!

I found paradise 😎

What an awesome time we had. From the moment we walked in the door we felt at home. The owner of this condo truly puts her heart & love into making sure her guests get the best. The grandkids absolutely loved this place. You get the best of both worlds. The great pools & the beautiful beach. Oh my gosh the extras that this owner provides is fantastic. Free beach service with cart included to transport your chairs and umbrella to the beach. The wagon was great for transporting all our food fixings & pool supplies. We could cook our meals on the grills at poolside & the kids never missed a minute of swimming. The kitchen in this rental is COMPLETELY stocked for all your cooking needs. The owner is wealth of information. She responds right away & if there is an issue she's on top of it. I am 60 years old and the owner of this condo made this beach vacation the BEST I've ever had. You will not regret renting one of this owner's rentals. There's to many extras she provides to mention. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect family vacation!

My kids and I had the most wonderful week! This was our second time here and we will return!

Vaction Bliss!!

From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we had picked the absolute perfect vacation condo. The condo was lovely, the view gorgeous, and the personal touches welcoming. Danica was a joy to work with... responsive, detailed, helpful, and hospitable, even leaving a little gift for us. I have never had a more pleasant experience with an owner. I highly recommend this unit and working with Danica!

Fantastic condo and great location!

We had a great time in this condo. It was clean with everything in working order. The condo is right by the garage/parking which is convenient. The pool and close access to the beach is great for families and kids. The owner is very helpful and provides you all kinds of useful information.

Highly recommend this condo!

This was my family's first real vacation in years and our first trip to the emerald coast. The condo was IMMACULATE and the owner, Danica, has everything you could possibly need for your visit.. particularly if you're traveling with little kids like we were. Pictures do not do the unit justice... It is very spacious, clean and comfortable. My preschooler LOVED the bunk room. Mom and Dad LOVED the large covered balcony. In terms of location in the waterscape, this unit is perfection. You can see the beach and the grounds. I read some reviews stating the beach was a hike from the unit.. I could not disagree more. Its an easy walk... particularly with the cart Danica provides. This was hands down one of the best vacations my family has been on. We loved the Waterscape, Okaloosa Island and Danica's unit so much, we are already booked for next year. If I could give this place more stars, I would. (My only hesitation in leaving this review is that other people will find out about how fabulous the unit is and take dates away from a future visit for us)

Beautiful condo, great views, awesome complex!!

This was our first visit to the Emerald Coast and our first stay in this condo. Loved it from the moment we walked in. Very clean, beautifully decorated, nice appliances, washer/dryer/etc. Owner has thought of everything. Very good to work with, very detailed and helpful. Loved all the attention to detail we have not had in other condos we have stayed in, from labeling all the light switches, remotes, etc, to helpful hints about the condo, grounds, how to get around, where to go for good food, etc. that were sent to us before our stay. The views from this condo were stunning. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful Week!

This unit was just perfect! It was clean and well decorated. I personally loved laying in the hammock on the balcony! The kids loved the bunk room and the cute monogrammed t-shirts Danica left for them. We enjoyed many of the recommendations made by Danica as well: Helen Back, The Buccaneers Pirate Cruise and The Gulf (just to name a few). She was super helpful and really helped to make our vacation as stress free as possible. Thank you for everything Danica!!

Beautiful Waterscape Unit!

We stayed at Waterscapes 4/15/17 - 4/20/17. The unit was immaculate! Let me just say that our friends were 2 units down from us in a property NOT owned by Danica, and there was a huge difference in the level of cleanliness and overall feel of the unit. I especially loved the Keurig to have my morning coffee! My girls (ages 3 and 5) loved the adorable bunk beds and watching their morning cartoons on the comfy couch. Danica was so easy to work with and as a HUGE BONUS was able to get us in to our unit much earlier in the day than expected! She also had monogrammed shirts waiting for my girls that were SUPER adorable! She really goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy! We will be booking again!

I don't normally leave reviews but we were so pleased I just had to. This is absolutely the cutest, cleanest, most amazing condo I have ever stayed in and I travel a lot. Danica was so sweet and easy to work with. This unit has everything you could ever want from the sleep number beds to the beach chairs and carts to the beach music playing upon arrival. Also the monogrammed shirts for the kiddos was an extra special touch! We will definitely be back!! Thank you Danica for a FABULOUS stay!!

We recently spent an absolutely amazing week in condo C505! Danica takes great pride in ownership and that shows from the second you walk in the door! The condo was clean, wonderfully decorated, and had everything you would need for a week of relaxation! The view and the sound of the waterfall is heaven on earth(I could sit on that balcony all day long)! It was so nice having beach toys, chairs, and an umbrella provided! We spent our mornings at the pool, afternoons at the beach, and our kids favorite part was going for a swim at night in the heated pool! We have stayed at previous condos that were dirty, dated, and the beds left you needing a chiropractor! You won't find that here! Everything is well cared for and the beds are great! We all agreed it was our favorite, most relaxing vacation so far and we can't wait to come back! Thank you so much Danica!

Amazing Condo at a Fabulous Complex!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Danica, the condo and the resort! Danica is so well-organized and thorough! The entire booking process was simple and quick, and she is excellent with prompt and detailed communication. I appreciated her attention to details in our pre-departure packet as well as her suggestions on places to eat and things to do. All of her suggestions were fabulous! Her condo is in excellent condition and decorated so well. It is well-stocked with basic home items as well as everything you need for the beach and pool. When we walked into the condo, there was beach music playing and a nice gift for the kids in our group.....what a special way to start off the vacation! Waterscape itself was amazing! Everything is so clean and everyone was so pleasant. The pool complex was a huge hit with my daughter. The beach is wonderful; clear water and the softest sand I've ever seen. I had worried a little bit that the "C" building was far away from the beach, but this was not the case at all. It was a quick and easy (and beautiful) walk, even for my 90 year old grandmother. Danica even gave tips on the best route to the beach and different pools. We enjoyed the facility and the area attractions: dolphin cruise, Gulfarium, putt-putt, arcades and more. I would highly recommend this condo and hope to return in the future myself!

This was our second time in this same condo and it was just as perfect as the first time! This unit has so much to offer. It is decorated perfect with a nice beach theme. It is stocked with so much that you feel like you are in your own home away from home. My kids enjoy all the beach toys that are there for them to use, the hammock on the balcony, and the grounds of this beautiful facility! Danica is such a pleasure to work with. Such a smooth process all around with great recommendations about the area. We will definitely be back for sure!

Danica is so easy and wonderful to work with. I have never booked a trip and had someone respond so quickly. Checking in is so easy because you bypass the front desk! She takes pride in her condo and you can tell by the details involved from the beginning, when you book, during your stay with a clean and organized condo, to the end with easy checkout. I received my deposit check very quickly as well. The property is perfect, right on the beach and the seasonally heated pool saved our vacation! Thanks Danica! We will be back!

Perfect for snow birds

First of all, Danica was great to work with. She communicated within an hour to answer any questions I had. The condo was clean, organized and decorated nicely. We are snow birds, so we really appreciated all the extras the condo had. We have stayed in other condos in this complex, and Danica's is by far the best! We will definitely be back!

Love waterscape! Best owner, best properties!

We have rented from Danica two years in a row. Both times, no disappointments and we have learned that she and her units are THE BEST! After chatting up with other guests and hearing their stories about their units/owners, I've realized that we likely will never book with anyone else. Details are thought of, she is easy to communicate with, and Waterscape is simply our place. Pools, beach, everything is top notch. We also love her two units because they are right off the parking garage. We had toddlers both years and the long walk with bags, kids, stuff was not very convenient. Kids love the bunk beds too! Overall, we just love this place, plan to return every year we can and will always book with this owner!

NYE on the Beach - The perfect week long getaway

We stayed in one of Danica's units over NYE 2016/17. We have 4 children ranging in ages from 14yrs to 15 months. I don't know if there is a more well appointed unit and resort to fit our family's needs than her units at Waterscape. The owner takes care of every last detail you can think of with respect to communication, arrival, departure, resort procedures, local restaurant & shopping tips... everything. All that is before you even set foot in the unit, which, speaks for itself as soon as you walk in. The condo is modern, clean, and clutter free (and that's important with kids). The sleep number beds are extremely comfortable, and linens are provided for you (lots of condos don't do this without an additional charge). As a large family, I fully appreciate a well appointed kitchen... at this condo, we had access to non stick pans, cooking utensils, stand mixer, coffee pot, tea kettle, crock pot, measuring spoons & cups, 5 quart stock pot (who doesn't love the local seafood), and more than enough place settings for multiple meals. Having a high chair in the unit for our mini-typhoon??? - AWESOME. What's really over the top - Everything you could need is in the unit for the beach, chairs, toys, wagons, cart, cooler, umbrella, literally everything except your own swim suit, sunscreen, and flip flops. When you don't want to hit to beach (uh... why did you pick a beach-front condo), there is a heated pool, 2 hot tubs, and splash pad that the kids can terroriz....errr... play at for hours on end. Sunset/sunrise views from this location on Okaloosa island are excellent. I have been coming to this area for over a decade, and I love this location (I spent many a night in the Hampton next door before this property was built). You can live here for a week without ever leaving the island. If you do decide to venture out, locally, it can be busy, but it's not absurd (see beaches in Destin during the summer) ... but you have access to Destin (20 to 40 minutes depending on where you want to go... an hour+ on days with crazy traffic) and everything offered over there as well. The million dollar question... would we come back? - Absolutely... as soon as we confirm what the 2017/18 school break schedule is, we will be booking with Danica again!

Excellent Experience

This condo is the best of the best. As the mother of two small children, I was thrilled with the cleanliness and the lack of clutter. The condo provided a PERFECT pack and play, highchair, beach toys, chairs, umbrella, beach cart and wagon. It was SO NICE to have all of that provided and avoid packing it ourselves. Waterscape is the ultimate family-friendly resort so this perfect condo was the icing on the cake. This particular owner is awesome to work with and we hope to return as soon as possible!

My family and I (me, hubby, daughter) just recently arrived home from the most relaxing and fun filled vacation. I can honestly say while the weather was perfect, the Waterscape grounds were beautiful, and the places we went to eat or visit were fabulous, we wouldn't have been nearly as relaxed or had as much fun if it hadn't been for Danica. She is absolutely wonderful to work with. Her attention to detail is amazing. The unit has everything you could possibly need. Literally, all you have to remember is your clothes, and some groceries if you plan on eating in. The kitchen is stocked with plates, bowls, cups, glasses, utensils, pots and pans, sheet trays, serving platters, a toaster, a mixer, a margarita machine, baking dishes, etc... there was even a roll of paper towel and some dishwasher tabs to get us started. In the bathrooms, there were multiple towels to use, hand soap, and a few rolls of toilet paper. And everything is labeled! You know exactly where everything goes, or what light switch operates what light or fan. The condo is decorated appropriately for a beach vacation, and it is so clean and clutter free. My daughter loved the bunk room. It truly is a hit with children! She also loved her bathing suit that was waiting for her when we arrived. My daughter was like, "Is this for me?! How did she know what size I wear?! Danica's the best!!!" My husband and I couldn't agree more. There were other, amazing extras that Danica thought of too...there were boogie boards and a beach wagon/umbrella/chairs to use, sleep number beds for a perfect night's rest, DVD players, an iPod, and a cool ocean book to look at/read, to name a few. We also took Danica's suggestions of different places to eat and things to do, and she did not disappoint! Anytime we had a question, before, during, or after our stay, Danica was always quick to answer, and was always so friendly. We loved our vacation so much, that we're booking with Danica at this same unit again next year!! We can't wait!!

I could tell immediately upon entering the unit that this was the owners home away from home. It was spacious and detailed to a T. Once after settling in and having gotten over the euphoria, time for bed. SLEEP NUMBER BEDS TOO? You've got to be kidding me. Blended with the gulf atmosphere perfectly, already made reservations for next year before I even left.


September, 2016

Blown Away

From the minute we walked in the door, we were in heaven. The attention to detail was amazing. as soon as we opened the door to go in, we were greeted by music, accent lights and a personalized sand pail for our grand daughter. There were beach chairs, a beach wagon, a pack and play among many other items for us to use. We were so happy with our condo, my husband booked that same unit for next years vacation.

Very Relaxing!

So far we have rented 4 different rooms at this facility and this one was by far our favorite. The unit was very clean and we'll maintained. The decor was lovely and the view from the balcony was way better then I expected. The beds in this unit are by far more comfortable then any of the other units I've stayed in. Also, the owner was very informative and a pleasure to work with.

Perfect Family Condo!!!

This condo is perfect! This was our first trip to the area with our two toddlers so I researched and found 505 cbuilding and everything I read was absolutely true! This condo was spotless clean and everything was in new condition. It has everything you need for small children including a highchair, full size washer/dryer and wagon! There was plenty of space for my little ones to spread out and play in the living room floor and I had no reservations about it as it was so clean. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could ever need. This was also my first time renting from an individual online. But the owner called me personally, answered all questions and we texted back and forth many times as she gave me so many helpful suggestions on places to visit close by! As mentioned in another review it is located in building farthest from beach but you are closest to parking(right outside of unit) but she explained all of that to me before renting. Highly recommend this condo to anyone looking at this resort!


August, 2016

Wonderful Week

My family and I like to visit a new beach every year. This year's trip to Ft. Walton was just awesome. Danica was so easy to work with. She replied to emails and text messages within the hour and checked in on us the day we arrived and departed. The condo was stocked with everything we needed. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, the linens were very nice, the view was great! The pools are perfect for every age - especially little ones! The beach was easy to get to, clean and perfect for families. I do not think you will be disappointed if you choose 505c.

Home Away from Home

This was the best, most well equipped, organized & comfortable condo we have ever stayed in. From the gorgeous decor, to the fully stocked kitchen and the top of the line beds/bedding it has everything you need in order to make it truly feel like home. One of my biggest fears is not being able to sleep well while on vacation, we didn’t have to worry about that with this condo...a sleep number bed, YES PLEASE! It was a dream come true, literally. So comfortable! There is a full size washer & dryer so doing a load of laundry was a breeze. Being able to park right outside the door to the condo was extremely convenient when loading/unloading the car. The grounds are amazing and my whole family loved the pools and the lazy river. This is truly one of the best locations for family fun. The owners literally thought of everything you would need to make your trip great. We really loved everything about this condo and I would recommend this unit to anyone!

Guest Review

This condo is so well kept and very organized. Danica, the owner, makes things a breeze when working with her! The trip was stress free with all the help she had given us before arriving! We will be back in the future for sure!!!

Best condo ever!

This condo was the best that we have ever stayed in. The location could not be any better. The decor was simply beautiful. I don't think that my family would be happy staying anywhere else on our family vacations!


June, 2016

Fabulous Condo

Wow...This condo was awesome!!! We love Waterscape and have vacationed here the last three years. Every year we have rented a different condo, this is by far the BEST! The decor is so cute, the pictures don't even do it justice. The owner, Danica, was wonderful to work with. She was extremely responsive and she couldn't have made the process any easier. Her special touches will leave you in awe. With out a doubt, we will be back!

We have enjoyed this condo so much. Waterscape is a real gem--it's a 12 hour drive for our family but worth it. Owner Danica is an absolute joy to work with. Makes everything very easy. The unit is first class with attention to every detail. Also the location of this unit is ideal with great access to very convenient parking in the parking garage and a wonderful view from the balcony and the master bedroom. We have been here twice with our 4 year old granddaughter and definitely plan to go back. You will not be disappointed. It is a wonderful family place.

Beautiful Condo

Our family of 6 had plenty of room in this beautifully decorated condo. They provided just about anything we could have asked for...we just bought a few groceries and were set for the week. This was our second stay here in a condo owned by these owners and this time did not disappoint. We will definitely be back in the future!

Precious Condo, Amazing Stay

By far the best condo we have ever stayed at in the area! We were so impressed the moment we walked in the door. It had everything we could have asked for and more! The view was fabulous, and the walk to the beach was not bad at all. We loved being able to park right up the the condo in the parking garage, we were there for a cheer competition, so had friends staying all over and they were completely jealous =)
There was plenty for the children (and adults) to do, my girls had a great time and were asking to go back the moment we left. The condo itself was spacious, clean and just precious. Thanks Danica for going the extra mile to make us feel welcomed and going the extra step to make sure our stay was perfect. We cannot wait to go back!

Just the most PERFECT place to stay! Every little aspect of our stay was flawless and comfortable from day one. When I first inquired about this unit Danikas response time was almost immediate! Her communication throughout exceeded my expectations. The unit was fully stocked with anything and everything that you may need in the kitchen. All the extras such as beach toys galore for the kids and the beach chairs/umbrella/cooler bag/wagon etc. were an added much appreciated bonus! The kids loved their little personalized surprise that was left for them! The Beach themed music playing as we walked in put a smile on my face. The view had to be one of my favorite aspects of this unit! The balcony with the hammock was also a favorite. There was more than enough room for our family of four. The sleep number beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms having the two vanities gave us our own extra space too. The parking convenience was also a bonus. The grounds are just picture perfect and all of the pools were better than I expected. The beach was incredibly clean and the sand was like sugar! Our stay was better than we anticipated and we will for sure be back to stay in this unit again!

Great condo with Wonderful view

Danica was awesome to work with!! Her organization from the time I booked this unit until we departed for home, is something I truly appreciate. She has put a lot of thought and effort into making this condo a home away from home. Every detail has been thought out. From the moment we walked in it was perfect. We walked into beach music being played, and personalized gifts left for our kids. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would need and the beach equipment (beach chairs, over-sized umbrella, cart and wagon for transporting "stuff" and kids, sand toys) is very clean and organized (even though the rain kept us from using it, but none of us are able to control the weather). This condo is decorated in nice beach color and decor, rather than a "cookie cutter" condo like some I have seen. The Waterscape grounds are absolutely perfect for kids of all ages. Our children are 10, 6 and 2 and usually someone isn't happy due to lack of things for their age, but NOT here!! The older two have already asked if we can go back again. I will most definitely rent this unit again in the future. Even though it rained the entire trip, it has still been one of our best vacations, and for that- Danika we thank you!!


March, 2016

Well Equipped!

This condo is first class and is extremely well decorated and equipped to ensure that your stay is hassle free and a home away from home. Every last detail had been considered and the owner has clearly thought of every possible scenario to ease your stay. The complex is also fantastic and absolutely ideal for families. Highly recommended.

Awesome Family Vacation!!!

We love Waterscape and all it has to offer!!! We have stayed at Waterscape several times and this is our favorite unit yet. It was clean and decorated super cute and was stocked with everything you needed and more!!!! The owners were absolutely great to work with and we hope to return to this unit again. Our boys asked the night before we left to come home if we could please come back and stay here again next year! I would highly recommend this unit!

Best Vacatin Ever

Absolutely loved Waterscape and especially this condo. It was stocked with anything and everything we could have wanted or needed and the decor was so beachy and relaxing! We really felt at home. Beds were super comfy and the personal touches which the owner left for us made it a very special experience. Danika (owner) was very organized and responsive. She really went the extra mile and exceeded all expectations. We will definitely be back!

We love Waterscape. This was our first visit and this condo is awesome for families with young kids. We had 3 adults and a 3 yr old and two 1 yr olds. From the pack n play to the highchair, to the wagon, everything we needed. It felt like home. We are already planning a trip next year. Well worth every penny. When you have young kids, you never know what they will be in to or if the weather will ruin your plans. We had so many options, the beach, the lazy river, the toddler play area, the pool, the Gulfarium.. so close! It rained every day and we didn't mind at all!


August, 2015

Every little thing...

My family and I had been keeping an eye on this listing for a while....knowing we would eventually rent and just waiting for the right time! We just got back from our fabulous vacation today.....late August after all the hustle and bustle of summer. The water was perfect....the calmest and clearest I have ever seen it, and I've visited the gulf every summer for most of my life! Perfect sunsets and more nighttime crab catching than I have ever experienced! My son was on cloud nine! Now, to the condo..... Upon entering there was beach music playing - immediately welcoming us to our vacation weekend! Every single thing we needed was at our fingertips. There were even things that we didn't realize we needed that we found accidentally: a stool for our son to use at the bathroom sink. An extra fan in each bedroom (perfect for our 5 year old who is used to sleeping with extra sound). Pretty much any kitchen utensil you would need and each one designated to a specific spot with a label. (This was perfect for someone like me who completely appreciates being organized!) Special extras for us and our little one who was elated to find something JUST FOR HIM upon arrival! He was also beyond thrilled with the beach toys that belong to the condo and allowed for our use. Another major added bonus is the beach cart and chairs. Every summer we have lugged all of our beach gear down in our vehicle and then down to the beach by hand. This summer we were thrilled to have our own cart and chairs provided! There was also a large umbrella provided, but with my family's fair skin, we always bring a tent to shield our vampire skin from the sun! ;-) The beds: My husband has major back issues and woke up each morning telling me that he had no trouble on the firmest setting of these fabulous sleep number beds! I like mine a lot softer, so it was nice that we could agree to disagree on our settings! Grounds: Lazy River, Splash Pads, poolside grills, Fudpuckers! Location: The first day we were at Waterscape, the weather was more perfect than we could have asked for. The next day it rained off and on. We planned for this. We visited the Gulfarium and the Air Force Armament Museum. We loved both. Each family member had a different favorite, but all were thrilled with the entertainment of both. Not to mention, we were able to walk to Waffle House for breakfast! ;-) All in all.....this condo can NOT be beat! We just got home and have already booked our next trip!

Owner Response:
This is a stellar review!! Thank you so much for taking time to write the details. And a little thanks for the extras goes a long way. I work hard in my units and appreciative guests make every effort worthwhile.

Our family had a wonderful time, the condo is immaculate and beautiful. The cart, beach chairs, and umbrella were a great bonus, made things so much easier! Everything is labeled, so finding/putting things away was a snap. The bunk room is totally adorable, our kiddo would only come out to go to the pool! This was by far the nicest condo we have stayed in for our yearly beach trip. We will definitely be back!


August, 2015

A Great Experience

This is a comfortable condo with all the amenities! The beach cart is SO HELPFUL, and the beach umbrella and chairs are just perfect. The owners of this condo provide GREAT detail on where everything is, how everything works, and even the most efficient routes to the beach from the unit! Can't say enough about her org skills. PLUS...we've usually stayed in Destin, but Fort Walton Beach is a gem and we'll definitely revisit the area. This condo was an integral part of a fantastic trip to the Emerald Coast!

The condo was great! We arrived to a very clean, organized and well decorated condo. When I opened the door the beach boys were playing and that set the mood for the entire trip. The sleep number beds are the best. This was the best vacation sleep I've EVER had and I owe it all to the sleep number bed in this condo. The beach cart complete with umbrella, chairs, and cooler is another awesome amenity in this condo. It was easy to use and saved us money on a rental. We had a great time and will definitely be visiting again.

Loved this condo!

The condo was great! The view was great..perfect view of the "kiddie" area, upper pool, and most importantly the ocean. The location was awesome not only for the view but parking! The ability to park basically right outside the door of the condo was incredible!! The beds were wonderful and my daughter loved the bunkroom. The kitchen was nicely equipped, we loved the fact there was a crockpot and used it the first day we were there :) Another thing I loved was the personalized towels the owner left for both my kids...so sweet and very thoughtful!! Highly recommend this condo!!

The condo was fabulous! We arrived to a very clean, organized and we'll decorated accommodations with a great view! We were amazed at the attention to detail. .The owner took the extra initiative to have personalized presents for the babies. The amenities included a beach cart, a hammock, a pack n play, beach music on the stereo and much much more..we will definitely be keeping your rental information for a future visit

Super cute and awesome with everything you need for fun!

Our group loved this condo! It had everything we needed to feel at home plus there were personalized goodies for the kids. How nice is that? Our favorite amenities: sleep number mattresses, cuisinart, hammock, margarita machine and the view from the balcony. We will definitely be back!!!


June, 2015


We LOVE Waterscape and have stayed here 3 other times (in 2 different condos). When I was searching VRBO and determining if we would return to the one we had rented the prior 2 years, I came across this one. The first thing that caught my eye was the adorable set up of the bunk area and large kitchen. As I read, I was intrigued with the amenities, price, and overall reviews on how CLEAN it is. We always go at peak season in June and I have just gotten used to the fact that I bring along my own cleaning supplies, because frankly have never been in a condo/ hotel that was quite clean enough for me (esp at peak season- I mean a little sand seems natural, right?). Well not here! In fact, I never used my cleaning supplies except wet wipes to keep the counters wiped as we stayed throughout the week. The first thing my husband said when we entered was, "wow! Look how clean the floors and tile are". We are a family of 4, but it was not much more to have the extra bedroom vs the usual 1 bedroom with bunks that we had done in past. My daughter and son decided he would take bunk area and she wanted the queen bed room. There was plenty of dresser space for both of them in that room, which meant less rumbling through suitcases for them (they are 10 and 7, so that was a big improvement from past years). We slept very comfortably in our bed. There really is no detail left out at this condo! The beds are "special", the couches actually clean and comfortable, all kitchen items provided, the hammock is wonderful, and the décor is top notch! The owner even has a wonderful "summer mix" in the CD player, and we enjoyed when it came on for us that first day. My kids were thrilled with their gift that was left for them! We did not use the beach umbrella or cart, but it looked great. We used 2 of the beach chairs and they are comfortable and sturdy. This owner is very responsive and will reply quickly. We were able to get into condo about an hour early, but even if you can't, take it as an assurance in knowing they are cleaning and preparing your condo in what I would say is 10x's better than any other.

Beach Fun

June, 2015

Cute, Cozy & Comfy on the Beach!!!! Need I say more?

Excellent stay! Plan to go back again! Such a fun, cozy & clean condo! Best stay on the beach yet. Owners are excellent! Pay very close attention to detail & go the extra mile to make sure your stay is "top notch"! Walked in to clean, cozy decorated condo that smelled wonderful, playing beach music! Totally put us in the beach vacation mood. Texted the owner once due to minor issue with beach cart. Expected not to be fixed until after we were long gone. Within 15 minutes someone was there with a brand new beach cart!! Excellent customer service!! Highly recommend this condo & owner!!

Rent This Unit!

We traveled with a large group and rented 3 condo's total, this condo and another with the same owner and a third with a different owner. There was a HUGE difference in the units owned by Danica and the other one. She works so hard to make it feel like home! It is decorated so nicely and stocked with anything you may need; plenty of towels/washcloths, tons of kitchen utensils/tools & small appliances (blender, mixer, crockpot, etc.), high chair, pack n play, even nightlights...lots of little things you can live without for a week, but made the week much more comfortable and enjoyable because they were there. She pays attention to the details and takes wonderful care of her units. The other condo that part of our group stayed in was not as well kept, very little supplies and obviously not as much care put into the unit...one of the headboards was not even attached to the frame and leaned and moved any time they touched the bed. Danica is also extremely responsive with any questions you may have and provided us with great information on everything from the best place to park, best way to get to the pools and beach, to restaurants and activities that we might enjoy. The unit also has very nice beach chairs and umbrella with a cart to get it all to the beach easily.

Owner Response:
I really appreciate this review. When we bought our first unit here we spent an entire day tightening loose screws. Knobs were missing, lights fixtures were broken, screens were ripped, and some of the ceiling fan blades were literally about to blow off the fan. And this is how it came, straight off the ResortQuest rental program. This is how they "care" for your unit. In addition, total lack of owner care was apparent. We immediately pulled the unit off of the rental program and took over management ourselves. When we bought our second unit at Waterscape, we shopped harder, looked at more. Out of 33 units we looked at, 25 had a cracked kitchen light (something we experienced in our first unit). So yes, the lights are crappy, but 25 owners have done nothing about it. That, to me, is much more disturbing. Most people see the unit they are in and have nothing to compare it to. I am glad that you have pointed out some of the benefits of my units. We work extremely hard in our units, and it is not easy keeping it in top notch shape when you have renters almost year round. Both of my units will always be this way. When I tire of it, I will sell them. Thank you for the review. Remarks like these give me the fire to keep this up. I would love to have you back again.

Great Family Condo

Our family loved this condo. Danica made the rental process very easy and she was full of great recommendations and helpful info. The personalized gifts for our kids were so nice and thoughtful. The condo's close location to the parking garage was really convenient for unpacking our car. The condo was very clean and contained all of the little things you might need including items for a baby/toddler (pack n play, highchair and float for pool). The location of this condo is perfect for little kids. The splash place is steps away and our kids loved it. The zero entry pool, lazy river and beach are just a short walk from the condo and also a lot of fun for kids. The Waterscape pools and grounds are also extremely clean. There were workers out every morning cleaning the pools, grills and grounds. We are already planning to come back next year. Thank you Danica!


May, 2015

Wonderful Stay

We could not have asked for anything better. My young kids loved the amenities (splash pad and the pirate ship slide)! It's such a family friendly environment. The condo was well organized and we enjoyed not having to pack a pack n play!!!!

Personable experience

When you work with people who immediately make you feel like family AND THEN stay in their home that feels like your own - there is no other way I would choose for myself and family of 5 to vacation. We will most definitely be back!

Awesome home way from home

Loved this condo!!! So nice walking in condo with beach tunes playing and personalized buckets for our kiddos. Lovely decor, clean, and well stocked kitchen. Loved ground floor for kiddos and all the toys and beach/pool gear. Will be back!!!

Owner Reponse:
This review is for my ground floor unit. I think I emailed the renter the wrong link. Oops. But thank you anyway for the awesome review. I would love to see you again!! :-)

Super Cute Condo & Convenient location to local attractions/restaurants

Owner is very helpful with providing detailed information from signing contract to departure. The condo was clean, nicely decorated, the pools are perfect for kids and adults and the beach was beautiful.


April, 2015

Absolutely beautiful condo - perfect for young families!

From the first contact with the owner through to our departure has been A++. She is responsive, proactive and accommodating with exceptional customer service. The condo we stayed in was perfect from every detail, decor, linens, cleanliness and everything you would ever need being away from home. We cannot say enough! We went a with a group and I was able to see other condos. The quality and aesthetics surpassed all by far. Our girls LOVED sharing the bunk room with pink and grey decor and lantern lights! This owner clearly knows what it is like to travel with children as her condo is equipped to please the whole family. The personal details and touches were incredibly appreciated by us all. We enjoyed the view of the gorgeous grounds and the gulf! The amenities of the resort met all of our needs (we would have liked a little more warmth in the large pool and lazy river... however, not a concern). When we return to this region, we will most definitely book with this condo!

My family had a fantastic time visiting friends in the FWB area. Your condo was great for the 8 of us. Well organized and very clean. The children loved their towels and throughly enjoyed all that Waterscape offered. We will most definitely rent from you again.

Great Condo

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. Everything was very clean and super comfy. The bunk beds and the hammock were a big hit with the kids. The pools were clean and well maintained. We loved our trip and hope to be back soon!

Great family getaway.

We had a great vacation. The weather was nice and the beaches were beautiful. After a long, cold Minnesota winter, it was very relaxing hanging by the pool watching our children swim or lounging oceanside listening to the crashing waves! Our condo was perfect and the view from our balcony was fabulous. We can't wait to do it again.

First time stay but not the last!

Being recently retired we were looking for a winter get away condo for a month . After viewing several areas and resorts we decided on this one and couldn't of been more pleased. It was everything the pictures showed and more. The kitchen had everything we could possibly of needed and we did a lot of cooking. Loved having the parking garage where we parked only steps away from our door. The resort area is so clean, well maintained, and secured. It is in walking distance to shopping, restaurants and beach walking. We are missing the fabulous views we enjoyed daily from the balcony. I would definitely recommend this unit for families or couples. You will NOT be disappointed! Loved it! Hope to return next year.


February, 2015

Perfect unit and perfect vacation!

We had such a great experience in this condo. It is soooo nice. The colors are relaxing and peaceful and beachy. The owner is magnificent to work with. She has everything you could ever need in a beach condo. This kitchen is better stocked than my own. There was even a kitchenaid mixer. I did not have to buy any "extras"...everything was provided. The unit was actually better than the ad states. We were the first guests to use the new beach service provided in this unit. I have to say it was WONDERFUL. Having chairs that we could set up anywhere we wanted was huge. Also each chair as well as the beach cart has cooler space. We threw all our beach stuff into the beach cart and didn't really have to carry anything the entire time. Waterscape is so nice. The grounds are excellent. The security is a huge plus. Everyone was so nice. I actually got to relax on vacation. I would highly recommend this unit and hope to stay here again myself. Danica goes above and beyond what an owner has to do. I have never seen a rental property cared for at this level. Amazing.

Totally surprised by this unit!!

A friend recommended this unit to me and I sort of took her word for it without doing much research on my own. She had told me all the wonderful things and so I expected it to be great. But, it still exceeded my expectations. The resort was amazing. If you want a place to relax, this is it. The unit--absolutely impeccable. EVERY detail was tended to. I have not seen a vacation rental so well cared for. I felt like I was in my own home. Everything I needed was already in the unit! Also, the unit was very clean. I will definitely be back here!! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!! I'm looking forward to visiting again.

Love Love Loved It!

My business partner & I rented the condo for the month of November. We split the time. My husband and I have 2 small boys! It was perfect for us! There was still plenty to do in November with the boys. Heated pool, playground area for toddlers, beach, shuffle board etc. The condo set up was great! Master bed & bath separate from 2nd bedroom & bath. The master bedroom had plenty of room to set up the pack & play. Since we were down for several days at the time we cooked a lot. I have never stayed somewhere that had any utensil, pan, kitchen tool you could possibly need! Everything thing was thought of when it came to stocking the kitchen!! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. The owner was GREAT to work with too. We will be back!


October, 2014

Absolutely Great!

If you are looking for a great vacation experience at the beach this is it. Danica, the owner is great to work with. Beautiful condo with an awesome view. Had a small problem with the wifi but a quick call to tech help and problem resolved. Could not ask for a more relaxing vacation. The pools, the beach, the condo, the shopping the restaurants, all word class.

Awesome! We've stayed at Waterscape before and knew about all the amenities the resort offers. Great family environment with a ton to do for all ages. We specifically loved this unit. Danica has all the extra's you don't normally get while on vacation. She takes great care to ensure the unit has everything you need for a wonderful week at the beach. She provides all the information you'll need to know about the unit, the resort, and the area. We'll be back, hopefully every year.

Awesome place to stay :)

Loved my stay at your condo. The condo was beautifully decorated and the family atmosphere was awesome. My grandkids loved the lazy river and the toddler pool. The weather and ocean cooperated with us too. Thank you and will visit again.

Love it :)

We had a blast staying here! The condo is decorated so cute! Even the towels are match! :) It has everything you need in the kitchen! The pools are a plus also! I would recommend this condo to anybody!

Waterscape's Best Secret

I stayed in this condo for 4 nights in August and it was truly delightful. This was my second stay in this unit. The owner just installed new tile and it looks fantastic! Every detail was thought over with care which is why I stayed here again. I have been coming to Waterscape for years and this is my favorite unit and I have no plans of looking any further. Love it!! Absolutely just love it!!

The condo was perfect! High quality linens and kitchen accessories, NEW tile, equipped with kid-friendly extras (wagon, pack and play, beach toys, and even a kite!) beautiful view, not far from the beach, and the resort was perfect. We brought our 17 month old and 4 year old and had a wonderful time! Morning at the beach, lunch by the pool, playtime at the water playground or zero entry pool or lazy river, nap, dinner, crab hunting on the beach/night swim- then repeat! The resort was well taken care of (the grills were super clean), good work out room, and everyone from the property were very friendly. The owner was VERY helpful and it is obvious that they take great pride in their condo. I recommend that you walk the pier at sunset (1/2 mile down the beach or short drive) where we saw a HUGE sea turtle and 6-10 dolphins. Also, check out Harbortown in Destin for the fireworks. Food Recommendations: Dewey's, Stuby's Seafood Shack, and Shakes (for dessert). I can't WAIT to book next year!

Great vacation!!

We had a great vacation our first time at waterscape. The booking process was very convenient and easy. The condo was very clean and nicely decorated! I love the privacy curtain on the bunk area. There was a pack and play in the unit for families with toddlers. Danica left personalized gifts for my boys.

Wonderful experience working with owner; before and after we had to cancel!

I just have to say that Danica is wonderful to work with. I had never used VRBO before and didn't know what to expect. After I selected the amentities important to my family and I, we knew this was where we wanted to stay. I immediately sent an email to see if the dates we wanted were available, and Danica replied within two hours. After I confirmed we wanted to stay, she emailed me the contract (along with extra, wonderful info) the next day and I promptly signed it and mailed our deposit. She confirmed our reservation as soon as she received it and we were ready to go on our vacation. Unfortunately, due to a family member's illness, we had to cancel our reservation. As soon as I notified Danica, she responded that she understood and would mail my deposit back. With everything going on, it was nice to hear, but it was one of those things I read and kind of registered and moved on; so I was amazed when I received a check three days later. I mean, I didn't expect anything less because she had been so great to work with, but I was still impressed with her promptness. Danica has been nothing but professional, compassionate, understanding, and helpful. We hope to be able to take our vacation in the very near future, and we will DEFINITELY be renting from her. **Danica, if you're reading this...you are the BEST!!! :)

Owner Response:
This review made me laugh out loud because I don't feel deserving of all that. This renter couldn't review my condo so she just reviewed me instead. I'll take what I can get. haha. Thank you for your kind words Autumn.

AWESOME First Experience!!

This was our first family vacation at Waterscape!!! We were in aww the moment we arrived! The condo was better than we ever imagined. Beautiful décor, very well organized, beautiful view, and very clean. The owner was awesome to work with. She gave us a list of things to do while on vacation and we did just about everything she recommended! We loved how everything was nicely labeled and it was very well stocked! We will definitely be back next year!! Thank you DC2 properties for a wonderful first visit at Waterscape:)

Great family experience!!

We loved this unit and dealing with its owner was all-around an enjoyable experience. My wife and I took our married daughter, her husband, our precious granddaughter, along with our adult daughter and just had a wonderful time! The unit was incredibly clean and well-organized. The pools and lazy river, along with beautiful beach access make this a place we'd love to come back to. Give them a call. You won't be sorry!

Perfect Family Vacation!

We absolutely LOVED our stay here! The decor was top notch, everything was clean and organized (even the light switches were labelled!), and no detail spared. Danica was thorough, friendly, and extremely helpful to work with. I don't have enough positive things to say about our experience here- it was just wonderful and we can't wait to go back!

Excellent Family Place

We had a great time with the kids at this condo! The resort offered a full variety of activities as well as a water park, lazy river, and large pools! The beach wasn't in the best of conditions due to storms bringing in some seaweed, but they were as good as can be expected after a rough storm. The pool area definitely filled that void. Would recommend to families and vacationers of all ages. We plan to stay again!

Wonderful family vacation

My family and I recently returned from a wonderful vacation at Waterscape. The condo was everything we hoped it would be. It was decorated so lovely. It was well stocked with everything you could think of, and some things you would not have thought about! We loved the C building and this condo. The view from the balcony was great. You can see over the entire resort pool area, and have an ocean view in the background. Many naps were taken in the hammock. Parking was literally steps from the door, which was so convenient for loading and unloading luggage. The resort itself was fantastic. It was very well taken care of and clean. With several pools, kiddie areas, hot tubs, and lazy river, there was something for everyone. The beach service was great and easy to use as well. We were thrilled that was included! Several restaurants and a grocery store are close, and Destin is just a few minutes away. The location is great. The booking process was a breeze, and the owner is wonderful to work with. She is very responsive to emails and texts. She even had a special gift for my son waiting on our arrival! We accidentally left a watch at the condo when we left. She contacted us as soon as it was found and arranged to mail it back to us. A great VRBO experience. We are hoping to go back again!

Look no further!!

We just returned from an amazing family vacation at Waterscape. This unit and resort are first class. The condo had everything we needed during our stay. It was wonderful working directly with the owner. Her attention to detail, timely response, all-inclusive pricing, and lovely unit were beyond compare. It is tastefully decorated and has lots of extras (all-terrain wagon, beach cooler, flashlights for crab catching, beach toys, and my kids favorite...Margaritaville blender for virgin daiquiris!). We can't imagine finding another unit this nice. The view was amazing and it was an easy walk to the beach. We walked across the street and had a great meal at the Old Bay Steamer. We also walked the beach to local restaurants The Crab Trap and Black Pearl. We ventured to Destin (a very quick and easy 5-10 min drive) to do the Sea Blaster Dolphin Cruise...definitely a highlight! We also highly recommend Harry T's restaurant in Destin. However, we spent most of our week onsite at Waterscape. There is something for every age and our kids never tired of the beach and all the fun pools. The parking garage is very safe and right next to the unit...easy in and out. There were several grills on the property and a Publix grocery very close. We enjoyed grilling out. We are so appreciative of this quality time we just shared as a family and we can't wait to go back to Waterscape and stay in this unit. After we returned home, we asked our 11 and 7 yr olds if they would rather go back to Waterscape, or to Disney, on our next vacation....they chose Waterscape!

One of the Best Places to Stay!!! AWESOME!!!

This is an excellent place to stay. Very convenient location to Destin and other areas surrounding Fort Walton (if looking to site see). This condo is very comfortable and cozy with all of the amenities you need in a home away from home!! There were so many details put forth within the condo that made our stay even more wonderful!! We will definitely be staying here again.

Awesome Condo

We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful condo! Our favorite amenity was the covered, back door parking. We found the condo very clean, well-equipped, and just as described and shown in the pictures. The four of us adults enjoyed the heated pool, hot tub, and pristine white sand beaches, but Waterscape is a wonderful place for kids too. We'll be recommending it to our friends and family with children. The owners are super organized, thorough, and easy to work with. During our stay, we also enjoyed a tour of the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin Air Force Base, did some shopping in Destin, and had a delicious meal at Floyd's Seafood House. We will definitely be visiting again soon!

Wonderful resort, condo, and experience

This is the best resort on the Gulf Coast that I have been to. I recently visited here after a recommendation from a friend, and it was everything she said it would be. The grounds are amazing. The pools are also amazing. There is something for every age. This unit was absolutely fabulous. It was clean and the kitchen was terrific. For once in a rental unit I had everything I needed to cook. The items provided were great quality, nicer actually than in my own kitchen. Each room had its own personality was everything was nice quality. Beds were comfortable. I couldn't ask for more. We walked down to the fishing pier and there was a beach playground. There were lots of good places to eat and shop nearby. The owner was extremely organized both with the unit and with the booking process. She was quick to answer our questions and her "Free Advice" was right on target. I highly recommend this resort and condo. Thanks for a great vacation!!

Wonderful Condo, no detail left untouched, best trip ever!

I have been to Waterscape 14 times and I have never seen a condo cared for as impeccably as this one. Not only is the owner's taste fabulous, this is the CLEANEST condo we have ever stayed in. What we loved: **The decor and colors. This place is beachy and classy. Not junky and cheesy. I loved that we had everything we needed, but not a lot of junk setting around. Everything feels fresh and clean. **It's well stocked. We had plenty of linens. There were extra towels, pillows, blankets. There were glass dishes for the inside, and plastic dishes to picnic by the pool or on the patio. Same is true for serving ware. There is a margarita machine that made fine margaritas and there were even plastic and glass margarita glasses. There was a cooler for us to use on the beach, and a wagon to pull our kids around in. There were even flashlights for crab hunting. **The location. Back door covered parking. Enough said. **The view. This is the most relaxing view I can remember. It's far enough back that you don't hear a lot of noise, but you can hear the waterfalls from the pools. You can see the beach and get some afternoon sun on the patio. I fell asleep on the hammock on the patio more than once. Oh yes, THERE IS A HAMMOCK ON THE PATIO! It was the only one I saw on the whole complex. Superb!! **The price. We got a fabulous deal! **The owner was helpful, prompt, and kind. Thank you so much Danica for all of your help! We'll be at THIS condo for my next 14 visit.

This condo is a jewel!!

I have stayed at Waterscape several times and this condo is the best I have ever stayed in. In the past I have rented through the front desk, but this year I used VRBO for the first time. I was surprised how easy the process was. The owner was easy to work with and covered EVERYTHING. She answered my many questions and went beyond what I expected. The condo is exceptional! I think the current owners just bought it and it's clear they have updated the place. The decorations and colors are so cute, far cuter than previous units we have stayed in. We just loved it. We felt right at home from the minute we walked in the door. It was well stocked, especially in the kitchen. There were more linens than we needed, extra pillows in the closets, etc. The owner even provided flashlights for crab hunting. My kids LOVED the lantern lights in the bunk room. I loved the VIEW the best. I will be back to this condo!! And PS. I saved a nice chunk of change booking with an owner directly vs. using the front desk. :-)

Abosulutely LOVED this condo!

My husband and I brought our 2 kids to stay at Waterscape for a quick weekend beach trip. I don't usually write reviews, but after staying here I felt I HAD to let others know how wonderful it is!! First, I'm picky about the decor in the condos I stay in and I just fell in love with the decor in this unit!! It's so beachy, but not tacky like most others. The roomy kitchen was a huge plus. The kids loved the bunk area and especially the lanterns lit up at night. The keypad was great on the door, we didn't have to keep up with a room card along with everything else you have to keep up with at the beach!! The booking process was super easy and the owners gave me all the info I needed to ensure we had a great stay. There's a GREAT restauraunt across the street (Old Bay Steamer) that we were able to walk to which was awesome! We will definitely be coming back to this condo in the future!
