Thank you for considering WATERSCAPE UNIT A225! UNIT A-225 UNIQUE FEATURES: **BEDS: 2 KING SIZE BEDS ONE IN EACH MASTER BEDROOM **BUNKROOM DOOR: Solid Core, rare @ Waterscape **BUNKROOM TV: Cable & DVD player, rare @ Waterscape **100% TILE FLOOR: No dirty carpet **UNIT LOCATION: 30 second walk to heated pool, splash pool, & 3 Webber gas grills from an enclosed hotel style hallway (no elevator needed) **COVERED PARKING: 30-45 second walk from front door (no elevator needed) **TV’s: 46 Inch in great room, 40 Inch in Master along with 2 additional flat screens **SOUND SYSTEM: Sony w/Bluetooth streaming, Netflix, & Pandora **XBOX 360 **SECURITY: Deadbolt lock high preventing littles ones from escaping **BEACH CHAIRS: 4 back pack style chairs and 2 umbrellas for you to take to the beach **NEW: Paint, Bedding, Bed, Bed Frames, & Sofas **BUILDING LOCATION: Short Walk to the board walk, restaurants, attractions, and pier MORE UNIT DETAILS: 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. CAN YOU HELP ME UNDERSTAND THE U-SHAPED BUILDING AT WATERSCAPE? 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. WHY DID WE CHOOSE THESE LOCATIONS AT WATERSCAPE? 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. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO RENT AN UPDATED UNIT? 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. WHY DO WE NOT INCLUDE BEACH CHAIR SET UP AT WATERSCAPE? During the busy season guest, must arrive at 7:00 AM to even consider choosing a seating location, 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.

                                                          Plenty of room and great pool setup

                                                          We loved our stay. Only complaint might be that you can hear people especially kids running in the room above. Other than that great place

                                                          Great place to take the family. They really loved the white sandy beach.

                                                          Our stay at A225 was great. It is clean and well maintained. The kids loved the bunkroom. The pools and beach at this resort are ideal for families, especially if you have preteen and younger as we do. Our only notable complaints are of no fault of the property owner. For a couple of days of our stay, the hallway smelled foul like sulfur or such. You could also occasionally notice it at the heated pool. Also, the last night of the stay, the fire alarm for the resort went off at 10:30pm, which is never fun. A positive to this is the fire department is right across the street next to the strip club so they had responded before we even made it outside. Of course, a fire department so close makes alot of noise so keep this in mind if you are a light sleeper. We wished there was an ice cream place that wasn't terrible within walking distance. We went to the mini golf/ icecream place right across the street once but the icecream was so freezer burnt that the kids wouldn't eat it. My family all said they would love to come back!

                                                          The property was very family friendly!

                                                          Great condo in a great location

                                                          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!

                                                          Great place for a vacation with small children!!!

                                                          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!!!
