Description of the Fort Walton Beach vacation condo rental
***These rates and calendar shown here are for Waterscape C505. 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 by searching as instructed in the next step.

***You can find more pictures, a video, and additional information by doing a web search for "Waterscape C505". Look in the search results for "RentWaterscape." (They won't allow me to post a link in this ad.) Feel free to contact me here, or there.

***When viewing the calendar (slide down the page a little), the availability shown is a little tricky. Example, if you want to check OUT on the 10th, then the last night you need available is the 9th. 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. 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, farthest from the beach. However, do NOT be deterred. It's not very far. You have an awesome view of the Gulf both from the inside of the unit and from the spacious patio as well. We are the only building that directly faces the beach. Many people ask me how far we are. I think the correct distance is 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. As we looked at the condos for sale we were weighing A vs. B. On the last day, we visited C. My husband and I both were in immediate agreement: this is where it is at!! The first thing that got us was the layout. The kitchens in A and B are TINY. It is SO FRUSTRATING. There is limited cabinet space, limited space to store your groceries except right on the counter. And when you do, then there is no counterspace to work. The kitchens in the C building are very large. More than one person can go in at a time 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. C505, 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! C505 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!!

For the grown-ups, to start with, we have new pillowtop SLEEP NUMBER BEDS in both bedrooms. Adjust it to soft or firm, whatever fits you best. These beds are 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 kitchenaid mixer, 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.

Technical Details about Waterscape, just in case you missed them:
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 very 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; Peak season only)
Fitness Center & Game Room


Technical details about C505:
The unit sleeps 8 people comfortably.
**Master BR has a king bed. Master bath has double vanities, a walk in shower, and a large bathtub.
**Guest BR has a queen bed. Guest bath has a single vanity and walk in shower (no tub).
**Bunk Room has bunk beds (2 twins), of course.
**Couch bed is queen size.

No keys. C505 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 include 4 very nice beach chairs, an 8' umbrella 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.
Area Information
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.

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!

After completing adoption last year (3 children ranging from 2-9 years old) my family wanted a kid friendly, magical first beach vacation and that is exactly what we got staying in these condos! The owner made the entire process so easy! The condo was beautiful, clean, perfectly stocked with any beach/pool/kitchen, etc items we might need. The owner even gave recommendations on places she has eaten and been to help make our trip so much fun! We will definitely be back to any of the condos she has at Waterscape next time we go to the beach!!

Super clean and well-appointed condo. Very tastefully decorated and we felt at home instantly. Owner is extremely well organized and informative (in ALL areas, even down to the best elevator to get to the beach!) Very easy to unload our stuff with garage parking close to the entrance of the condo. Slept 8 very comfortably and kitchen is easy to cook in with every appliance and utensil you would need. Beach, pools, and grounds were immaculate. If you are going to Okaloosa Island, THIS is the condo you want to stay in!

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!

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!

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!

Stayed: April 2016

Just PERFECT!!!
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 Danica's 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!

Stayed: April 2016


Great condo with a 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- Danica we thank you!!

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!

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!

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!

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.

We enjoyed Waterscape and will definitely be back, and I will definitely rent this unit again!

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.


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!!

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!!!

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 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.

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!

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!

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!

Amazing
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!


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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Which of your units do you like best?
A: This is absolutely the question I receive the most! My answer depends on your situation.
This unit is best if you have older children who don't necessarily need the convenience of the easy access of the ground floor. This unit comes with an AMAZING view and of my two units, this is actually my favorite. I love laying in the hammock! However, when I travel with my young children, we usually stay in the ground unit. They play outside while I cook or do laundry. There are usually many children playing games together. The in-and-out convenience on the ground is unmatched. However, you have no ocean view on the ground. So you basically are choosing between convenience and a view.
My other unit is located on VacationHomeRentals, number 234808 (put it in the search field)
Q: Our family is staying at a nearby property. Will you provide them bracelets?
A: Short answer: No, I won't. Waterscape has 339 units and each of those units can have 6-8 people. It makes for a crowded pool deck in the summer months, because Waterscape sells out! It isn't fair for Waterscape renters to pay top dollar for our amenities while visitors from other properties take up the pool chairs and use the amenities for free. If your guests want to use our amenities, they should book at Waterscape. With that said, they are welcome to visit the condo and the beach, where bracelets aren't required.
Q: Do we have to wear our bracelets?
A: YES! You definitely do. We have 24/7 security onsite. It is wonderful. This is a family resort and our security helps keep it that way. There are a few rules and they are strictly enforced. I will give you more information about this when you book.
