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.

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.

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 Fort Walton Beach

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!!

Paradise in Waterscape A301

  • 5 of 5

We loved every second of our stay in Waterscape A301. When we arrived, we were amazed to see that everything we needed in the kitchen was at our fingertips. The condo itself is well appointed and designed for comfort. The unit was up to date with furnishings, large screen TVs and tons of DVDs, toys, games and a closet full of beach chairs and beach toys. The beds were the most comfortable we've ever slept on. This condo has a view that is fantastic! And, did I mention the huge margarita maker? This is an A+ condo in every way. Waterscape Resort is perfect for families and couples in need of a get away. The outside heated pool is complete with a lovely tropical garden. The waterfall and Lazy River tubing pool will keep your family busy all day. If you have toddlers, they will delight in the splash pad area located above the heated pool area. Or if you want, enjoy a lovely outdoor picnic in the gazebo area before going down to walk the beach. We have stayed at Waterscape 6 years in a row. We will be back!

Gorgeous Views

This condo at the end of building A gives it's guests breathtaking views! You feel as if you are on the beach when you are on the patio. The Destin side of Waterscape, Building A is the quietest area in the Waterscape complex. We immensely enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again.

One of the best condos and resorts we have visited!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Waterscape A301 September 30-October 7, 2017! Michelle, one of the owners, was super friendly and always answered any questions that I had in a timely manner. The condo itself was extremely clean upon arrival and had everything that we needed from extra toilet paper to beach toys for the little ones to use. With 3 bedrooms, bunk area, and 3 bathrooms, there was plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Full size washer/dryer, keurig, hair dryer, vacuum, full size kitchen with anything you might need, and plenty of towels made our stay very accommodating! The mattresses were firm and the pillows soft and plush!

With just a short walk to the beach, the 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas that were included with the rental, made our time in the sand relaxing. The chair attendants were super friendly and professional!

When our granddaughters, ages 2 and 4, tired of the sand, we would make the short walk to the pool area where there was something for everyone! We enjoyed our time in the lazy river, the kiddie pool with the pirate ship slide, and the larger pool. Fudpuckers had a poolside stand where we were able to buy drinks and food, which was very convenient.

I would totally and completely recommend staying in this unit!

Thank you to Michelle and Jeff for offering such a great place to spend our extended family vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It always makes my day to know that a great vacation was had by all. It's good to know you found everything you needed at the condo, we try to take an extended stay each year during the off season so that we can replace or purchase anything we think a family will need and this year that included the beds and pillows so we're especially glad to hear those were comfy. It was great chatting with you and answering your questions, I can talk about "my" beach forever. We hope your family will stay with us again!
