About Pinkie Flamingo

We currently live in Nebraska and fell in love with the Gulf Coast years ago. Many people agree with us when we say these are some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen, and the beautiful colored waters are just magical.

Pinkie Flamingo purchased this condo in 2012

Why Pinkie Flamingo chose Fort Walton Beach

We recently purchased this condo on Okaloosa Island because of the location and amenties. Of course we think it's the best unit in Waterscape!

What makes this condo unique

The floor to ceiling windows are just breathtaking. We hope you will enjoy this “home away from home”!

Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

Rented this condo for 6 adults and 4 children over the Christmas Holiday. This was the first time ever renting a condo and I must say it was well worth it. Pinkie made the process smooth.

The pictures do not do it justice and the views are breathtaking. Each room had its own walk out to the wrap around balcony.

I must give kudos to Pinkie. Shortly after booking she found out they were to do work on the balcony scheduled the week we were to be there. She had alternate plans in case the work happened on schedule. I don't know if other Owners would have tried to make other accommodations or not.

Thank you again Pinkie for sharing your lovely Condo with our family.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

This unit boasts size and view which it does not disappoint on. However, everything else was very disappointing given the price. This unit was FILTHY. The floors were so dirty, our socks turned black. The mattresses were also very old and uncomfortable. So much so that we switched rooms only to find that there was sand in the bed. The sheets had not even been washed. The decor was dated as well. The sheets had picks all over them. Will not be staying in this unit again.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry you were disappointed Katherine. I really wish you would have let me know while you were there instead of waiting 6 months to post a review. I would have had my housekeeper come right back out and address any cleanliness issues. We try very hard to not disappoint but there is not much I can do 6 months after your stay other than to invite you back. We are in the middle of many updates for B500. Please try us again! Pinkie:)))

Absolutely Extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely extraordinary unit…stop looking and book this unit. I, my wife, our 2 boys (1 and 4), my parents and my grandmother (all from Chicago) stayed in this unit last week. All 3 main bedrooms we're perfect for the 3 families, and my 4 year old son loved the bunk room!! For those interested, the bunk room does have a folding door for privacy (not seen in the pictures). All 3 main bedrooms have an incredible view of the gulf, and sliding door entry directly to the massive patio.

When you walk in the unit you are greeted to a beautifully updated kitchen, but your eyes are quickly drawn to the wall of extra-large windows begging you to come outside and breathe the fresh air. This time of year you will be able to see both the sunrise and sunset, which are beautiful. The patio faces south, east and west, and it's incredibly large. You have 3 main sitting areas on the patio with high top tables and chairs, regular patio chairs and a table, and chairs you can lay flat on to capture the sun as well. Even with all this furniture on that patio is incredibly wide open because of the size. You are ocean front, so nothing obscures your view, and all you can see is sand, sun and surf. Nap time for the boys turned into happy hour for the parents each afternoon on the patio, which was fantastic! 5 adults on the patio was nothing, you could probably fit 15 comfortably; it’s that large.

You’ll have a full size washer and dryer, which is great for long stays with kids. The master bedroom has a massive bathroom, with extra-large tub and shower (also great for kids), large queen bed and ample room for a pack-and-play or crib. 1 of the other 2 bedrooms has a round queen bed, and full bath with tub/shower combo. We weren’t sure about the round bed at first, but after only 1 day in the unit, my parents commented on how it was a great use of space, and the bed was quite comfortable. The other bedroom has a regular queen bed with a full bath and walk in shower (perfect for my 89 year old grandmother). There is also a half bath in the hallway near the front door, which is perfect.

I also have to give a shout-out to Pinky who helped us out on a couple occasions, and made for a wonderful stay. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great experience at an exceptional location. My family and I will certainly be back to this condo if our travels take us back to Fort Walton Beach.

Amazing View

  • 4 of 5

My family vacation is over but the memories will last a lifetime. Amazing views from living areas, the huge balcony and each of the 3 bedrooms. Condo is very roomy and decorated well. Loved the beach chairs and umbrella available to us each day. We will definitely plan to stay on our return vacation. A condo you don't have to go outside to enjoy.

Thank you, Pinkie, for letting us share your paradise get away.

Best view on the Island

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at many of condo complex's on Okaloosa Island and the view is by far the best. 180 deg. from the living room. Wrap around balcony great for sunrise and sunset.

Our party had 4 adults and 5 children - plenty of room for all. Pictures on website provide an accurate description of the condo. Plenty of seating for dining. Bunk bed room a plus - each bed had its own TV. Unit clean and well maintained.

More than average patio furniture available. Great kitchen with plenty of storage. Unit is at end of building offering plenty of privacy. Waterscape is a 'resort' complex so it could be crowded an noisy in the summer. This unit, being on the end of the building, would probably not be affected.

In November only one pool is heated and not very well, but it was a particularly cold week. While the kids were disappointed there was still plenty to do. Plenty of pool space in the summer including a lazy river.

The owners of the property were great to deal with. Everything went smoothly.

Okaloosa Island is quieter than Destin, yet only 10 - 15 minutes away. If you want a really peaceful and quiet beach trip head west to Navarre for a day. Very uncrowded.

This was really one of our best trips. Highly recommended. We'll be back.

Minor annoyances: squeaky dryer (reported to owner), no dresser in bedroom with round bed.

Amazing Spring Break 2013

  • 5 of 5

2 families stayed in this condo over Easter Break and had an absolute blast!!! 4 adults and 5 girls (ages 16-3) and we all had an amazing time. The condo is gorgeous inside with plenty of room for all 9 of us. The wrap around balcony is so spacious with unbelievable views of the ocean. The resort itself has great pools and very easy beach access. The white sandy beaches are awesome and the chairs and umbrella provided every day make for great relaxation. I would highly recommend this condo. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom allowing for privacy. The bunk bed area for the little kids was great because they got to relax and watch a movie each night without being annoyed by the loud adults! This truly was a wonderful trip for both of our families and I thank Pinkie for creating such a dream location for our families to relax and enjoy some fun in the sun.

Waterscape is ideally situated within walking distance to numerous restaurants and stores. The newly remodeled Gulfarium is right next door. The grocery store is just over the bridge. You really do not ever have to get in your car if you do not want to!
