**These rates and calendar shown here are for Waterscape C203. I own three condos in this resort and would love to have you in any of them. (C203, C505, B112). Rates and calendars for all of my units can be found at www.RentWaterscape.com. The calendar on this site does not import correctly, and there is nothing I can do to fix it. Rates are also not shown correctly unless you put in dates. Please check rates and my calendar on my webpage. www.RentWaterscape.com
**I try to book renters back-to-back and may decline your rental request if it leaves a one or two night gap.
**I charge rent, cleaning, and tax. A deposit is required to book. There are no service fees, management fees, or any other crazy fees to increase your price. Let's keep it simple here!
Waterscape is Ft. Walton Beach's most sought after rental complex. The layout is loaded with amenities including multiple pools, one with a waterfall, one heated in winter, a lazy river, a child's waterslide, two hot-tubs, on-site snack-shack complete with your favorite frozen beverages, a walk-through cave, onsite gym, beautiful landscaping, covered parking, and of course, it's BEACHFRONT! I have two 2BR units in this resort but only one listed here. Please contact me and I'll point you in the right direction for the other one. Both units are of exceptional quality.
After reading a few ads from Waterscape, they things really start running together and you focus on the price and forget it. I would hope that my ad would be more helpful than that. So I'll think a little outside the box here. If you want the same-old information, see my neighbors' ads. My ad will tell you the rest!
There are three buildings at Waterscape. It is shaped like a 'U'. The beach would be at the top of the U. A and B buildings are down the sides and the C building is on the bottom, parallel to the beach. This unit is located in the C building. We are on ground level. There are only a handful of ground level units and they are highly sought after. We are the only building that directly faces the beach. Many people ask me how far we are. I think the distance is about 100 yards, about the length of a football field. Walking from the C building to the beach is like taking a stroll through paradise. Waterscape grounds are phenomenal!!
Before buying in Waterscape, I had never stayed in the C building before. There are some very nice benefits to this building. The kitchens in the C building are very large. More than one person can go in at a time (kitchens in A & B are tiny!) and there is plenty of room for everything, including cooking! Next benefit: Parking! This may not seem like a big deal but after staying in the B building MANY times and then staying in our unit, I realized I had no idea what I was missing. It’s very convenient. If I forgot something in the car, 10 seconds and it’s in the condo. The only units that have back door parking are units in the C building. And, it's covered parking, which is really nice in the hot Florida sun!
You will find most of the units in Waterscape to be Vanilla. The contractors painted them all the same and that is how most remain. C203, however, has been completely upgraded and has its own personality. It is colorful and classy, decorated with beachy flair, and most importantly to me, IT IS NOT CLUTTERED. If I see one more fake plant (I mean dust collector) inside a condo I think I'll scream. I have two small kids and when we go to the beach, we bring our house with us. I don't need extra clutter already awaiting me! C203 is a unit for families. I love children and they are welcome in my unit. I have an all-terrain wagon here to help you get around the property. I am also the only owner in Waterscape with a hammock on the patio. Have you ever napped in one of these things while the sounds of the waterfall puts you to sleep? It is wonderful!!
We have nice TVs and a DVD player in every room. I have big, thick towels, and the kitchen is stocked with nice gadgets, including a crock pot and everything you need to make the meals of your choice. I rented at Waterscape for a long time. I know how frustrating it is to go in a unit and barely be able to find a spatula. It drives me insane!! You are renting at a top-rated resort. In my opinion, each unit should reflect that. Many owners own a unit for an investment and do not oversee the unit closely. I toured about 30 units this past November and 26 of them had a cracked kitchen light and screen doors falling off the hinges. You will not find that in my unit. We care for it immaculately.
My bunk room is a hit with the kids. I get comments from almost every family telling me how their kids loved the bunk room. My pleasure! In this unit I have installed a custom made light blocking drapery at the entry way. It will block out all the light into the bunk room so your kids can nap during the day, or sleep late in the morning without the kitchen lights disturbing them. I know rest for them means rest for you. Again my pleasure! :-)
I do not charge any fees except tax and cleaning--another benefit of working directly with an owner. You are not paying the middle-man. Please keep in mind: If your dates leave a 1 or 2 day gap in my calendar before or after your visit, it makes those dates unrentable. I do not like this (its like giving away two free nights to get you into my unit), and it's why most owners rent by the week. I will most likely decline your dates if they cause unrentable gaps in my calendar. (Sorry in advance, but it's just business.)
How to book: Booking with me is quite easy. I email you 3 simple documents to fill out and sign. You return them with your $250 deposit. The deposit secures your reservation and covers any damage to the unit that you might cause. I return the deposit after your stay if the unit is left in the same condition as found. All of this is covered in detail in the rental paperwork. If you have questions about anything, of course, I am just an email or phone call away.

No keys. C203 has a keypad lock. You set the code when you arrive. No dealing with the front desk. You can go straight to the condo. No dealing with keys on your trip either. Never again will I dig through a sandy beach bag trying to find a key to get in.
The unit has all the amenities you would expect. Washer/Dryer, dishwasher, icemaker, free Wi-Fi, etc.
To better serve my guests, I now include 4 very nice beach chairs, an 8' umbrella (larger than beach service's) with a twist-in anchor for easy setup, and a huge rolling beach cart with sand wheels (with a built in cooler) for ease in carrying it to and from. This way, you can set up wherever you like and stay as long as you want, avoid the crowds, and have the freedom to take up as much space as you like.
I am always an email away. Feel free to ask any questions you have. I try to help people find their way at Waterscape, in my unit or not.
Not familiar with the area? All around you is fresh seafood from world class restaurants. The Old Bay Steamer, one of the best, is just across the road. (You can walk.) Shopping is everywhere including the one of the largest outlets in the southeast. Waterscape is right next door to the Gulfarium, which I highly recommend. It is also a short beach walk from the fishing pier and board walk. There is a nice waterpark (Big Kahuna) and your typical beach stuff like putt-putt golf, go-carts, etc. The location is GREAT! Enough said.
About The Area
We are just over the bridge (at Crab Island) from Destin--about 5 miles. We are on Okaloosa Island, which is the quiet side of Destin. We are technically in Ft. Walton Beach, but most people call our location Destin since we are so close. We have a 6-story limit on Okaloosa Island, so you won't find any high rises here!
All guests must wear armbands issued by the resort.
Saving of seats with towels is not permitted.
Eating and drinking within 4 feet of pools edge are not permitted.
