Description

Waterscape C505-Lazy River, Waterslide, Heated Pool, Hot Tubs, Multiple Pools, ALL BEACHFRONT

Imagine a beachfront resort with such an amazing setting of pools that your family could step into its beauty and never care to leave.  Imagine a shallow toddler pool with a waterslide for your smallest children, a large zero-entry pool with a huge, swim-behind waterfall, and a a lily-pad water course for your tweens to monkey around on.  Imagine a lazy river that gently passes you around the immaculately landscaped grounds, and not one, but two beautifully set hot tubs, where you can leave your troubles behind and get some real rest and relaxation.  Imagine an onsite snack shack to purchase drinks or meals that you just don't feel like cooking, and an outdoor heated pool (heated seasonally) where you can enjoy the Florida sun in its full beauty, even on a chilly day.  Imagine this with barbeque grills and tables surrounding, where the adults can prepare dinner on the Weber gas grills while the kids playfully splash and swim right beside you.  Imagine leaving this all behind to step off the boardwalk onto the softest, white powdery sand in the world, for a front row seat to the pristine, turquoise waters rolling right up onto your toes. Quit dreaming, you have found it!  This is Waterscape.

Waterscape C505 is located on the Florida Panhandle in the Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area and is one of the most popular resorts on the Gulf Coast. We are a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with all the perks you'd expect from a 5-star resort, plus many that you haven't yet considered.  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 couse, cooking 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, but we also have a bar table in the kitchen with 2 barstools, so that seating for 8 is provided.

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 4 beach chairs, a large 8' umbrella, and a beach cart to provide front-row beach views 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 small selection of 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.  It features 2 twins in bunk style, with the flamingos and lantern lights that put you in the right mood and make the babes happy to get into their sleeping quarters.  Our bunk room features a light blocking and sound insulating curtain, making sleeping in a breeze.


Technical Details about C505:
  • Max occupancy is 8 (including infants).
  • Large, fully stocked kitchen. (I mean business here.)
  • Master BR has a king Sleep Number bed.
  • Master bath has double vanities, a walk in shower, and a large bathtub.
  • Guest BR has a queen Sleep Number bed.
  • Guest bath has a single vanity and walk in shower (no tub).
  • Bunk Room has bunk beds and a light-blocking privacy curtain to keep your kids soundly sleeping.
  • Living room has a queen size tempurpedic sofa bed.
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Back-door, covered, gated parking
  • Keypad lock. No dealing with the front desk.  No dealing with keys.  No digging through a sandy beach bag trying to find a key to get in.

Technical Details about Waterscape, just in case you missed them elsewhere:
  • HUGE Zero-entry pool with waterfall, Lily Pad course, and water gadgets
  • Lazy River with tubing provided
  • Quieter upper level pool, heated seasonally
  • AWESOME Toddler pool with waterslide and waterfall/water gadgets
  • Covered play area for kids (save the sunburn!)
  • 2 large hot tubs, snack shack, beautiful landscaping, gated parking, 24/7 security (a HUGE plus)
  • Poolside gas Weber grills that are professionally cleaned daily
  • Beach Club (planned activities, movies at the pool, crafts, karaoke etc; Summer only)
  • Kayaks, Paddle Boards, Sailboat, and Bikes available on the grounds
  • Fitness Center with gorgeous pool and waterfall view
  • 24/7 on-the-ground security
My name is Danica.  I am the owner, and I would love to welcome you into my favorite spot in the world.  You can rest assured that no one cares more about my property or my guests than me.  I am the best rated owner in this resort (out of 339 units!) because I take great care of my property and my guests. Vacations don't come with do-overs, so let's get this right, together!
I don’t charge any fees except tax and cleaning.  Booking fees, resort fees, service fees, admin fees, parking fees...that's something you WON'T find here!

****I appreciate it when possible to fill the calendar right up to the next renter. If your dates cause unrentable gaps in my calendar (leaving one or two single nights only), I may not be able to accept your reservation.

Best condo we've stayed in    Oct 09, 2020

review star


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!    Oct 02, 2020

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.

We arrived to our condo with music playing 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 awesome owner.

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!

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!!

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.

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⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!

Perfect Getaway!    Jul 10, 2020

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!

The Portwood Family Beach Trip    Jul 10, 2020

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!!

Loaded and Spotless    Jul 03, 2020

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!

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    Jun 05, 2020

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!!

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!    Jun 05, 2020

review star


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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Spring Break Family Trip    Mar 27, 2020

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!

Danica Connell's reply:

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!!    Mar 13, 2020

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    Aug 12, 2019

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.

Nicest Place on the Gulf!    Oct 20, 2018

review star


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.

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!

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!    Sep 15, 2018

review star


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.

Awesome Vacation    Aug 03, 2018

review star


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    Jul 16, 2018

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!

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!

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!    Jun 01, 2018

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!

BEST.VACATION.EVER!    Apr 20, 2018

review star

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!

Not a negative thing to say about our stay on the property either.

Amazing! Great place to rent in Destin/Ft. Walton Beach!!    Nov 23, 2017

review star


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 <3, Danica made sure we had everything we needed including gifts for the grandchildren! They think she is magical!!!!!! (I think so too!) The view from the balcony is gorgeous, you can see the pools and hot tub area which is beautifully done, you can also see the gulf! If you have children this condo is a must!!!!!

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!

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.

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!

Amazing Condo at a Fabulous Complex!    Apr 19, 2017

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!

Beautiful Waterscape Unit!    Apr 15, 2017

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!

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!

Perfection!!!    Mar 15, 2017

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)
