Why Richard Fowler chose Florida Main North West

My husband and I first visited Waterscape in 2008. We loved this resort - the look, layout, and of course the white, sandy beaches. We love the amenities this resort offers us and our family. Our little girl loves the water slide in the wading pool. It's always a peaceful and fun stay for our entire family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

We love the ability to walk right out onto the courtyard. Our little one loves to play on the courtyard while we relax on the patio furniture in the morning or the afternoons.

Great getaway with kids!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Waterscape! Communication with the owner was superb. The unit was clean and well equipped (with the exception of spatulas - there wasn't one to be found other than a huge metal grilling spatula - ha! We made do). We especially enjoyed the margarita machine! The beds did leave a little to be desired in the way of comfort - we all woke up with somewhat stiff backs - but otherwise we had a great stay.

Notes on the location for others considering Okaloosa Island and Waterscape. We chose Waterscape specifically for the kid friendly pool. And it was EVERYTHING we were looking for. Our kids (4 and 7 year old boys) would have been content to spend the entire vacation on the lily pads at the pool and made easy friends with the other kids. The pool side bar ($10 for a HUGE frozen alcoholic beverage) is a nice perk for adults too.

This unit has a grassy area outside the patio which is nice for the kids to run around, kick a ball around etc. However it is the farthest point from the beach, and while the pool is steps from the patio, the ENTRANCE to the pool is about halfway between the unit and the beach. Kids under 12 are not allowed to go to the pool alone. There are no lifeguards.

If we were to come again we may look into units at the end, closer to the beach. I did somewhat regret not having an ocean view off the patio, and being steps from both the beach AND the pool would be ideal IMO.

Also a note about Okaloosa beach. It's not as pristine as Destin's. We figured it was all the same in this area, but it's not the case. It's still very nice, but there is more sea algae on this end (our bathing suits were full of it when we got home - yuck) and the waves are a little rougher, the water murkier and greener. We thought maybe storms were kicking up some gunk, but when we went into Destin the next day we say those beaches and water were as perfect as ever - so it's just the area.

Overall, if you have young kids and want a kid-friendly pool with lots of features (lazy river, splash pad, waterfalls, etc) and you know you'll spend more time with your kids at the pool than the beach, and you want to be close to Destin's touristy attractions but not TOO close - this is a great choice.

Ideal Condo for Young Families

  • 4 of 5

As a family with four children ages 1-6, our first priority was finding a kid-friendly unit with easy access to pools, and this condo did not disappoint! A ground-floor unit that opens to usable green space, the walk to the splash pads and pools was reasonable even for our youngest child. While there is plenty for all ages to see and do around Ft. Walton and Destin, our kids were 100% occupied by various pools and the beach all week-- a major plus for parents who just wanted a relaxing, low key week!

The check-in and check-out process at the unit was very straightforward, and we appreciated the parking in the covered garage that was right outside of our front door. The girls enjoyed sleeping in tucked-away bunk beds, and everyone had fun playing catch and frisbee in the yard space right outside the back sliding glass doors. The unit was both clean and comfortable, and we were impressed by cleaning and landscape crews that kept the public spaces, including pools and bathrooms, very well-maintained. Other guests were friendly and family-focused, which we appreciated.

A couple of things to note-- in terms of the Waterscape property, this particular unit is located farthest away from the beach. To carry a cooler, sand toys, beach blankets, etc. to and from the gulf, including over a couple of short staircases, was cumbersome. We stayed in late August and did encounter quite a bit of algae and jellyfish in the gulf. Thankfully the pools offered the majority of entertainment for us. Additionally, we ran in to a few very minor issues in our unit, including limited cookware, a finicky faucet in the garden tub, as well as a couple of light bulbs that needed changed. If bringing young children, I'd recommend packing a few nightlights to place throughout the unit, as well as a safety gate; there is no door that separates the bunk nook area from the hallway.

Overall, we had a terrific vacation and would gladly work with Richard in the future and stay in this unit!

Great for smaller children!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean and awesome for our 3 year old. Being on the ground floor with a grassy area was great for playing frisbee or catch. Parking is super convenient and Richard was easy to work with. All the kids loved the pool areas especially the zero entry and lily pad obstacle! Definitely would recommend this to others!

Perfect for families with small children!

  • 5 of 5

Being on the ground level and just steps from the pool area was perfect for us! We have 3 small children (6, 5, and 3) and it was nice not to have to fight steps. Clean, cute decor and had everything we needed. Grills close by, and we could park really close to the unit which made loading/unloading easy. Will definitely come back and will request this unit again!
