VIEW - Did we mention the view??! This unit is right on the beach, NO OBSTRUCTIONS blocking your view of the beautiful beaches.

I'm Michelle and my husband, Jeff, and I are the owners and managers of the unit. We are no longer are using a property management company but are managing the unit ourselves in order to offer you a more personal vacation experience. We send you the security codes for the parking garage and the unit prior to your arrival so if you are arriving late you don't have to worry about the check in process. It's park the car in the garage, head to the unit and your resort bracelets will be waiting inside for you! We have a Keurig 2.0 in the unit so if it's coffee for 1 or for many we've got you covered for that first morning caffeine fix. Of course we have a Margaritaville machine so it's always 5 o'clock here. We installed bamboo wood flooring in the bedrooms when we purchased the unit and there is tile in all the other common areas so no worries about stained carpet in this unit. We do have small throw rugs beside the beds so you can brush the sand off before saying goodnight. We are also proud to say that you'll find no sleeper sofa in this unit. We sleep 10 people in beds so no one has to worry about drawing the short straw and having to sleep in the living area. Parents can stay up and enjoy watching television or hanging out on the balcony without disturbing the little ones. Need to do some laundry? Well you don't have to do it in the kitchen like most of the other units. We have a separate large laundry room with a FULL SIZE washer and dryer, utility sink and lots of extra storage cabinets. You spoke and we listened! We just updated the dining area with new table and chairs with seating for 7 AND we added a stand alone bar top table that adds seating for 2 more! The whole family can now enjoy dining together. We also added a small table and 2 chairs to the Master Bedroom so you have a place to sit while putting on your shoes and an extra spot to charge those electronics you just couldn't leave at home. Luggage racks are now in all 3 bedrooms giving you a place to rest that suitcase so you can dig out the swimsuits and flip flops! If it's a rainy day you have no need to worry as we've also added Netflix so you can watch your favorite shows if the weather doesn't cooperate. We've also added a blue tooth compatible sound bar so listening to your favorite tunes just got easier!

Our unit has a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico and the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier and the summer fireworks display. The decor in the unit compliments the tropical surroundings of this relaxing resort. The condo has an open floor plan that leads to a private spacious balcony with outdoor furniture. The condominium's kitchen is well appointed with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and beautifully tiled floors along with a Margaritaville machine for all your frosty beach concoctions. All dishes, cooking utensils, and bake ware are provided to cook and serve meals. The dining area has a large table with seating for seven. This beautiful unit offers a twin bunk area for extra accommodations. The open living room houses a sectional couch, flat screen TV, and DVD player with Netflix. There is a full bathroom located off the main hallway near the bunk alcove and the 3rd bedroom. The master bedroom features a king bed, private bath with stand up shower and garden tub, flat screen TV, and DVD player, luggage rack, extra seating with table and of course that amazing gulf view. The second bedroom includes a queen size bed, private bath, flat screen TV, and DVD player and luggage rack and a view of the gulf. The 3rd bedroom offers a queen size bed AND a full size bed. It also has a flat screen TV, and DVD player and a luggage rack. There is a separate large laundry room equipped with a stackable full size washer/dryer and utility sink with extra cabinet storage for your convenience.

Since we don't like sunburns we also include daily beach service. The beach service will be happy to get you all setup and ready for the day on the beach, sunburn free!

(in season only) Our beach service includes 2 sets so you get 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas each day.

We work hard to manage our unit and make your check in as effortless as possible and offer immediate access to your unit. Arriving late...no problem, we will send you the codes for the unit and the garage so when you arrive it's straight up to the unit, no check in hassles. Your resort wristbands will be waiting inside for you along with a binder full of helpful guest information.

Discounts: While we wholeheartedly appreciate our wonderful past and present members of the military, we do not offer a military discount. We make every effort to ensure that our rates are competitive in the hopes that ALL members of all service industries can make a trip to the beach fit their budget. Our military members are definitely hero's in our eyes but so are our police officers, fire fighters, EMT's, nurses and teachers and while we'd love to give everyone a discounted rate we do have to pay the bills. Thank you for your understanding and the service you provide our great country.

About Michelle

We are the Sims family and we purchased our first Waterscape condo in September of 2010 and we loved the resort so much we sold that unit and upgraded to a 3 bedroom right on the gulf front of Building A. We love the beach and especially the Ft. Walton Beach area. We have been vacationing here since our children were small and always dreamed of one day having our own place at the beach. When we come to the beach we leave our cares at home in Texas and stand amazed at the beauty of this area. We hope you will stay in our unit and fall in love with the beach the way our family has.

Michelle purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michelle chose Florida Main North West

We chose Waterscape resort because it offered the most appeal for families. Our children are in college and in the working world but they still find plenty to do at the resort. There are so many wonderful fun activities for the younger children that we knew this was the place for us to buy. The resort also offers lots of seasonal children and family activities like Dive In movie nights, karaoke and then in the off season they have special activities for the snowbirds. We also love that we don't even have to drive to dinner or shop, it's all within walking distance and we don't have to fight the Destin traffic just to go out in the evenings.

What makes this condo unique

Relaxation when you want and fun activities when you want those. You can be as lazy or as active as you please!!

Great property for families!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited with our 5 children. The accomidations were perfect! Very clean, spacious, with a well stocked kitchen and many extras (DVD's, board games, rolling cooler, beach toys etc) that made our stay so much more comfortable and reduced the amount of things we needed to pack or purchase there. Michelle was wonderful to work with. Would highly recommend and would book again!

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect, just what we needed for a great week away! The kids got to enjoy all the amenities, from the beach, to the pool, to the hot tub, to the XBox and movies...A301 has it all for the kids to enjoy. The beach, a good book, great views, a cold drink, and amazing weather made for the perfect getaway for the adults. The owners have definitely thought of everything to make this a home away from home! We definitely plan on returning to this area and hopefully to this unit! Thank you Michelle for making this process so easy, we really appreciate it!

The only negative to our week was the construction right next door that we had to listen to from 7am-7pm daily. Made it hard to enjoy the balcony, but this is short term and nothing anyone could do about that...good to see they are almost done with the outside! Thanks again for a memorable week!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Yes, I think we will all be glad when that construction next door is over! They are slated to open next month so an end is in sight for sure! We are so glad you found everything you need and we're so happy your weather was beautiful! Please let us know when you are ready to visit again because we love our repeat visitors! Beach Blessings to you and your family.
