Ideal location, you never need to step foot on an elevator. When you want to go to the pool walk down the air-conditioned hallway directly out to the Splash pool/play area and seasonally heated pool. The unique indoor hallway makes moving in your luggage much more comfortable during the summertime heat. The Kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a nice open serving area allowing for guest to relax and mingle while the chef in the group completes everyone’s meal. The bunkroom has its own door and cable TV which are a unique feature added to this unit after construction was completed. Both bedrooms are set up as masters with direct access to the balcony for convenience. They also both have KING SIZE bed's this is rare to find at Waterscape.

Each bedroom has a private bathroom, with an oversized tub & shower. The master has his and her sinks. The children will enjoy use of the half bath allowing for more privacy in each of the two masters.

Finally, we provide the best of both worlds access directly to the owner to book your unit and local professional management services in case something requires immediate attention.


Generally, units closer to the sand will cost more to rent, and will be further from parking. Please keep in mind the entire complex is located on the beach and every unit is a short walk to the ocean!

Waterscape is shaped like a U, this means only 12 units are directly parallel to the ocean without an angled view or distance of about 80-100 yards to the sand. The left side of the U is the A building, the bottom is the C building, and the right side is the B building. All of what makes Waterscape the best resort for kids in the Destin area are the pools that lie in the middle of the U.

Our A225 unit is located one unit from entrance to the interior hallway in the A building. Most units do not have access via an interior climate controlled hallway. This entrance is the closest location in the A building to the COVERED parking garage and back entrance to the splash pool. This means you can access pools, grills, and parking without getting on an elevator in less than 30 seconds. Our C300 and C306 units are located one level up, or effectively second floor as the pool is on the second level. You can park 25 feet from the front door of either unit. Access to the pools and our A225 unit from these two units is also extremely convenient. One can go down the elevator to the second level or take one flight of stairs.

If you want to see the pools and resort grounds, you should stay in the C building, or in even numbered units in the A or B building. If you want things quieter, the odd numbered units in A or B face the outside of the property. Nearly all the odd numbered units in A & B will have a narrow view or no view of the ocean between the buildings. The new hotel next to the A building has been completed and our A225 unit has no view of the ocean.


My wife and I had young kids under the age of eight when we purchased our Waterscape units. We found over the years most our time was spent around the splash pool with the slide and the grills for cooking. We also found that we seem to bring half of our house with us on vacation. Being extremely close to the car and the splash pool area is a no brainer for convenience.


Most of these units had one of a handful of furniture packages. The sofas, TV’s, bed frames, and carpet are the issue. We have had to replace all these items as they were either broken, disgusting, or too small in the case of TV’s.


During the busy season guest, must arrive at 7:00 AM to even consider getting on the front row, because of the placement of the chairs. I find I can get closer to the beach without worrying with how early my day starts using my own chairs. Therefore, we provide our guest with four chairs and two umbrellas during their visit.

About Rick Angle

It was always my mom's dream to own a condo in Fort Walton Beach. My wife and I adopted this dream and were fortunate to make it come true. We were blessed to be able to purchase this unit during the downturn in the market. After seeing this could actually become a business for our family we purchased additional units each year and started DESTIN WEST ESCAPES! Each year we improve on our ability to deliver a solid vacation experience for our guest. It is my sincere desire to be a small part of your families vacation memory making experience!

Rick Angle purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rick Angle chose Florida Main North West

This complex is a perfect family atmosphere and location to maximize time at the beach!

What makes this condo unique

My favorite aspect of Waterscape is the resort style pool area, convenience of never needing to get in the car after the first visit to the grocery store, or step foot on an elevator.

Great condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Condo looks just like the pictures. Everything was clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. We loved being just a few steps from the parking garage and on the same level as the kids pool/splash area. It was super convenient. We've stayed at Waterscape before in a different unit, and we definitely enjoyed this location more. Rick was easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again!

Clean and updated!

  • 5 of 5

The convenience of where this particular unit was located was great for kids and made the week much easier traveling back and forth from the car and pool area. The unit was clean and updated, and the owner was super easy to work with. The amenities that Waterscape had to offer was great for my family, and it's conveniently located close to the Gulfarium, Fudpuckers, Crab Trap, the Destin Harbor, and many of our other favorite places to visit when we are in Fort Walton. The pool area has multiple pools, a splash pad for the kids, hot tubs, easy beach access, and plenty of grills located on the pool deck. I would highly recommend this unit and I know we will definitely be back!

Great place for a vacation with small children!!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 4 adults and 5 children (5, 4, 3, 3, and 1) for a week long vacation and we had never stayed at Waterscape before but this was a great place for us! The children's pool area was very close to our room, making it easy to run back to the room for items we forgot or for naptime. It was quite a trek to the beach but our kids liked the pool and lazy river best so we spent most of our time there. The tiki bar out by the pool was awesome too - had adult drinks and great food and drink options for the kids! The chairs provided for the beach were very convenient so I'm glad we didn't have to bring our own. We missed having an ocean view but didn't spend much time in the room anyways. We ate at AJ's Shanty and Helen Back's that were super close and they were both great options! Wild Willy's was a good place to go for rainy days at the beach. Rick was easy to work with and was very prompt on answering emails. We reported a leaky faucet to Rick and he had maintenance come and repair right away. A couple of suggestions I have is to put some kind of child lock up high on the main door and to have the interior door locks looked at. Our kids were able to open the door and take off running before we even realized they were gone and some interior door locks weren't functioning and some were missing. Overall, we had a great experience!!!

Fall Break

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5, along with my dad, stayed in this condo for fall break. This was our first experience staying at this complex. I will say that it was a way different experience than another facility we usually stay at. It definitely has a ton of pool activities for kids. It seemed super busy and I can't imagine how busy it would be during the summer. It definitely isn't a place if you are someone who has no children and is looking for a quiet place. My kids loved it but we prefer a more quiet setting. The beach was a little bit of a walk from this unit so be prepared. The unit itself was nice and spacious. They had several beach chairs, a few boogie boards and other sand toys so need to pack those. The bathrooms were huge and the extra 1/2 bath was a nice addition. I was a little bummed about the beds. My husband and I stayed in the master bed. It definitely isn't plush and I agree with another reviewer that the bedding was something you'd find in a cheap motel... scratchy, thin and weird. There was not a good supply of toilet paper or trash bags so we had to buy more. As stated in the description, there is construction directly out from the balcony. It starts early. It didn't bother us during the day because most of the time we were at the beach or pool. By evening time, they quit. My kids enjoyed the Xbox that is provided and the T.V. and solid door on the bunk room were nice additions. The parking garage is very close to this unit and made it nice for unloading and loading back up. Thank you.
