About the property

Magnificent Beachfront Condo furnished with everything you could possibly need!


******PLEASE NOTICE******

**Please do not pay online without inquiring about availability, obtaining a contract, and understanding terms. I often have reservations pending (in limbo) and I need to look at your dates BEFORE you book online.

**This site has now chosen to not display rates tables. I offer weekly rates which are cheaper than what is shown in the rates info. I offer monthly rates in the winter also.

**Search the goog for "Waterscape C505" and look for "RentWaterscape." There is better rate info, a 3D tour, more pictures, videos, and tons of information.

**I appreciate it when possible to fill the calendar right up to the next renter. If your dates cause unrentable gaps in my calendar (leaving one or two single nights only), I may not be able to accept your reservation.

After reading one or two ads, these things really start running together and you focus on the price and forget it. I would hope that my ad would be more helpful than that. So I’ll think a little outside the box here. If you want the same-old information, see my neighbors’ ads. My ad will tell you the rest!

There are three buildings at Waterscape. It is shaped like a 'U'. The beach would be at the top of the U. A and B buildings are down the sides and the C building is on the bottom, parallel to the beach. This unit is located in the C building, farthest from the beach. However, do NOT be deterred. It's not very far. You have an awesome view of the Gulf both from the inside of the unit and from the spacious patio as well. We are the only building that directly faces the beach. Many people ask me how far we are. I think the correct distance is 100 yards, about the length of a football field. Walking from the C building to the beach is like taking a stroll through paradise. Waterscape grounds are phenomenal!!

Before buying in Waterscape, I had never stayed in the C building before. As we looked at the condos for sale we were weighing A vs. B. On the last day, we visited C. My husband and I both were in immediate agreement: this is where it’s at!! The first thing that got us was the layout. The kitchens in the C building are very large. More than one person can go in at a time and there’s plenty of room for everything, including cooking! Next benefit: Parking! The only units that have back door parking are units in the C building. And, it's covered parking, which is really nice in the hot Florida sun!

C505 has been completely upgraded and has its own personality. It is colorful and classy, decorated with beachy flair, and most importantly to me, IT IS NOT CLUTTERED. I have two small kids and when we go to the beach, we bring our house with us. I don’t need extra clutter awaiting me! C505 is a unit for families. I love children and they love my unit. I have an all-terrain wagon here to help you get around the property. I am also the only owner in Waterscape with a hammock on the patio. Have you ever napped in one of these things while the sounds of the waterfall puts you to sleep? It is wonderful!!

For the grown-ups, to start with, we have new pillowtop sleep number beds in both bedrooms. Adjust it to soft or firm, whatever fits you best. These beds are wonderful! We have nice TVs in every room. I have big, thick towels, and the kitchen is stocked with nice gadgets, including a kitchenaid mixer, crock pot, and everything you need to make the meals of your choice. I rented at Waterscape for a long time—I know how frustrating it is to go in a unit and barely be able to find a spatula. It drives me insane!! You are renting at a top-rated resort. In my opinion, each unit should reflect that. Many owners own a unit for an investment and don’t oversee the unit closely. You will not find that in my unit. We care for it immaculately.

My bunk room is a hit with the kids. I get comments from almost every family telling me how their kids loved the bunk room. My pleasure! In this unit I have installed a custom made light blocking drapery at the entry way. It will block out all the light into the bunk room so your kids can nap during the day, or sleep late in the morning without the kitchen lights disturbing them. I know rest for them means rest for you. Again my pleasure.

I don’t charge any fees except tax and cleaning--another benefit of working directly with an owner. You aren’t paying the middle-man. Please keep in mind: If your dates leave a 1 or 2 day gap in my calendar before or after your visit, it makes those dates unrentable. I do not like this (its like giving away two free nights to get you into my unit), and it's why most owners rent by the week. I will most likely decline your dates if they cause unrentable gaps in my calendar. (Sorry in advance, but it's just business.)

How to book: First, please realize this site no longer sends c0ntact_info so I will not know who you are until you pay this site their $ervice_fee. At that point, I will be able to work with you on securing the rental. I email you 3 simple documents to fill out and sign. You return them with your $250 deposit. The deposit secures your reservation and covers any damage to the unit that you might cause. Rent is due 1 month prior to check-in. I return the deposit after your stay if the unit is left in the same condition as found. All of this is covered in detail in the rental paperwork.

Technical Details about Waterscape, just in case you missed them:

**HUGE Zero-entry pool with waterfall, Lily Pad course, and water gadgets

**Lazy River with tubing provided

**Quieter upper level pool, heated seasonally

**AWESOME Toddler pool with waterslide and waterfall/water gadgets

**Covered play area for kids (save the sunburn!)

**2 very large hot tubs, snack shack, beautiful landscaping, gated parking, **24/7 security (a HUGE plus)

**Poolside gas Weber grills that are professionally cleaned daily

**Beach Club (planned activities, movies at the pool, crafts, karaoke etc; Peak season only)

**Fitness Center & Game Room

Technical details about C505:

The unit sleeps 8 people comfortably.

**Master BR has a king Sleep Number bed. Master bath has double vanities, a walk in shower, and a large bathtub.

**Guest BR has a queen Sleep Number bed. Guest bath has a single vanity and walk in shower (no tub).

**Bunk Room has bunk beds (2 twins), of course.

**Couch bed is queen size.

No keys. C505 has a keypad lock. You set the code when you arrive. No dealing with the front desk. You can go straight to the condo. No dealing with keys on your trip either. Never again will I dig through a sandy beach bag trying to find a key to get in.

The unit has all the amenities you’d expect. Washer/Dryer, dishwasher, icemaker, etc.

And don’t be fooled by the savvy ads on VRBO—EVERYBODY has free WiFi!!

~I no longer buy in to Waterscape's beach service. Most of the time my units have more than 2 adults and providing 2 chairs either separates families or costs them an additional $120 to rent another set. Then you get stuck on the 2nd or 3rd row with no view, and they pull the chairs up 2 hours before sunset. To better serve my guests, I now include 4 very nice beach chairs with built in coolers, an 8' umbrella (larger than beach service's) with a twist-in anchor for easy setup, and a huge rolling beach cart with sand wheels (also with a built in cooler) for ease in carrying it to and from. This way, you can set up wherever you like and stay as long as you want, avoid the crowds, and have the freedom to take up as much space as you like.

I am always an email away. Feel free to ask any questions you have. I try to help people find their way at Waterscape, in my unit or not.

About Waterscape C505

I am Danica Connell, the owner. I self-manage this unit and there is no way to rent it except directly through me. I am the mom and wife to a family of 4 from Birmingham, Alabama. We own three properties at Waterscape. We absolutely love visiting here. We have been coming since 2009 and it never gets old. It's a new experience every time. We just love it!

Waterscape C505 purchased this condo in 2014

Why Waterscape C505 chose Fort Walton Beach

We LOVE the C building. It is a gem that everyone overlooks because it is the farthest from the beach. We love the back door parking and the straight-on view of the beach. We also love the larger kitchens and being able to see the beauty of the resort from our balcony. Our view is wonderful and this condo is super cute!

What makes this condo unique

Back door parking is huge!! We like facing the water also. The units in the C building have very large kitchens and lots of cabinet space. If you plan to eat in a lot, you need this extra space. I rented units with smaller kitchens in the A and B buildings for 4 years before I tried the C building. We ended up buying here. That's should say enough.

Fantastic property, wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was our second visit to this property. Three years after our first visit, the condo is still top notch! It truly feels like you are "at home," rather than renting somewhere for a week, due to the owners attention to detail. Wonderfully decorated, everything you could possibly need has been thought of, and most importantly CLEAN. The owner goes above and beyond, and is so easy to work with. I highly recommend this condo, and Waterscape, for those looking for a great family vacation spot!

I found paradise😎

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome time we had. From the moment we walked in the door we felt at home. The owner off this Condo truly put's her heart & love into making sure her guests get the best. The grandkids absolutely loved this place. You get the best of both worlds. The great pools & the beautiful beach. Oh my gosh the extras that this owner provides is fantastic. Free beach service with cart included to transport your chairs and umbrella to the beach. The wagon was great for transporting all our food fixings & pool supplies. We could cook our meals on the grills at poolside & the kids never missed a minute of swimming. The kitchen in this rental is COMPLETELY stocked for all your cooking needs. The owner is wealth of information.. She responds right away & if there is an issue she's on top of it. I am 60 years old and the owner of this condo made this beach vacation the BEST I've ever had.. You will not regret renting one of this owners rentals. Ther's to many extras she provides to mention. But you will not be disappointed..

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I had the most wonderful week! This was our second time here and we will return! The owner has thought through every detail and is very contentious to ensure that everything is perfect for our stay! I can't imagine a more comfortable, beautiful, and relaxing place to stay for a week with my children!!!

Vacation Bliss!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we had picked the absolute perfect vacation condo. The condo was lovely, the view gorgeous, and the personal touches welcoming. Danica was a joy to work with... responsive, detailed, helpful, and hospitable, even leaving a little gift for us. I have never had a more pleasant experience with an owner. I highly recommend this unit and working with Danica!

Fantastic condo and great location!

We had a great time in this condo. It was clean with everything in working order. The condo is right by the garage/parking which is convenient. The pool and close access to the beach is great for families and kids. The owner is very helpful and provides you all kinds of useful information.

Highly recommend this condo!
