Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family enjoyed this beautiful, quiet condo. The balcony was wonderful, and

we loved making the "difficult" decisions of where to spend our time : beach or

pool? Our last night here was a pleasant surprise : a movie (Madagascar 2) at

the pool! We have lovely memories to take home with us: the steady flowing

waves at the beach, powdery sand squishing in our toes, the beautiful sun in

our face, watching sunsets on the beach every night, visiting Gulfarium, freash

seafood from Destin every day, and new freckles on our faces. We loved it here!

Nice, relaxing, easy, enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Our family trip included our 2 and 4 year old and our parents in the 70s and it was very enjoyable. The kids loved the variety of pool areas and the lazy river, we enjoyed the beach and lazy river, and it was very easy access to the parking deck and pool area. The gulf (toes in water) is probably 300 feet from the door but it’s easy walking as 200 of that is on smooth sidewalk with maybe 30 total steps (including up and down steps). I’m including step count as our parents have limited mobility so that’s important and probably for others as well.

The condo itself is great with large bathrooms, patio, and good overall space. It is very clean and well maintained - no issues whatsoever.

The only downside is the patio view (parking lot of other hotels) but it didn’t bother us at all as it was so easy to get to the beach and pools you can have a view within 2-3 minutes if you want it.

One unknown is crowds - we visited in late September which I believe is off season. The beach and pools have minimal and tolerable crowds. I would guess that during high peak season it may get a bit too crowded for our taste in the pool and beach area.

Finally, the owner is very helpful and responsive. I txt her a couple of times with logistics questions and she responded quickly.

We would definitely enjoy staying here again if we were visiting this area during non peak season, and maybe during peak but not super peak.

Nice condo - owner very helpful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Waterscape. The owner was very quick to respond anytime we had a question. The pools were great - and just a short walk from the condo to the beach. Condo very conveniently located for quick access to the pools and also the parking garage.

Perfect place for kids!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was as advertised and we loved it! All the amenities you need for a week long stay! The resort is AWESOME! Our kids were entertained the whole time and the condo was big enough for myself, my husband, a teen, toddler, and crawler! There is no beach view from the balcony, but we knew that from the reviews and it wasn't a big deal to us. We could see the fireworks from our condo which was awesome! We will definitely come again!
