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. I DENY ALL BOOKING REQUESTS MADE WITHOUT SPEAKING TO ME FIRST.

**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 A and B are TINY. It is SO FRUSTRATING. There is limited cabinet space, limited space to store your groceries except right on the counter. And when you do, then there’s no counterspace to work. 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! This may not seem like a big deal but after staying in the B building MANY times and then staying in our unit, I realized I had no idea what I was missing. It’s very convenient. If I forgot something in the car, 10 seconds and it’s in the condo. 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. If I see one more fake plant (I mean dust collector) inside a condo I think I’ll scream. I have two small kids and when we go to the beach, we bring our house with us. I don’t need extra clutter already awaiting me! C505 is a unit for families. I love children and they are welcome in 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: Booking with me is quite easy. 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. 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. If you have questions about anything, of course, I’m just an email or phone call away.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are a family of 4 from Birmingham, Alabama. We own two properties at Waterscape. We absolutely love visiting here. We have been coming for 5 years and it never gets old. It's a new experience every time. We just love it!

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
