About Discount Vacation Properties

Welcome to our homes. I hope you enjoy them (and take care of them) like we do.

Why Discount Vacation Properties chose Fort Walton Beach

We chose Okaloosa over anywhere else in the world, because the beaches are the white, the ocean is emerald blue, the island has building restrictions (so it is not crowded), and it is close to all the shopping, restaurants, and activities.

What makes this condo unique

We are 6 miles to everything Destin has to offer, yet we have no crowds on the beach or heavy traffic on the roads.

Needs some updating/

  • 3 of 5

Had an older tube TV, other one small flat screen. Cable service very spotty. Many of the items in the unit were worn out. Busted off broom, dustpan a joke. Curtains faded, many lights burned out. Didn't take out beach equip, very worn. We also were out of water for parts of 4 days of a 9 night stay.

Owner's Response: The cable service is provided by the HOA. Had you told us you were having issues, we could have had them come check it out. The HOA also provides the water. They had a supply break during your stay, and had to turn off the water to the building a couple times in order to diagnose and repair the pipe. We're sorry for the inconvenience that may have caused. If you had told us you had burned out light bulbs, we would have sent someone to replace them. We're glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay.

Wow! We could not have asked for a better vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Waterscape! It was very close to the beach, pools, parking, restaurants, shopping, groceries, fishing pier, and pretty much everything. The room was nice, spacious, and very clean. We were happy that we got a good price, and the kids loved everything there is to do around Waterscape too. It’s a great family destination. People are so nice. We saw dolphins playing almost every day. The beach is so soft an white, and the water so blue and pretty on sunny days especially. There is lots of great restaurants around here, and even more in Destin. The men went deep sea fishing out of Destin harbor, only a few miles away, and caught enough to eat for a year. Sky Ventures made booking very easy. We’ll be back!

Car: not necessary

You have everything you could want at this resort. No need for a car here. There is even a free beach shuttle going between Okaloosa, Ft Walton Beach, and Destin. We also have a fully equipped on-site fitness center to help you get in the best shape of your life. This property has great activities. There is a seasonal kids’ club including poolside twister, sandcastle building, jell-o slurping, pool games, crafts, story time, face painting, water sports, and our new, poolside movie nights. Also, we even have kayak and jetski rentals right on our beach! This property is close to the fishing pier, restaurants, clubs, mini golf, and water toy rental. It is only a few miles to the Destin bridge, and right where all the action is. Covered parking protects your car from the hot Florida sun. Our ideal location on Okaloosa Island’s Miracle Strip Parkway (Hwy 98), means that you are a short walk from a convenience store, many fine restaurants, bars, clubs and shops.

This lovely 1 bedroom, 1 bath efficiency (3 walled bedroom, and pass-through to bathtub) condo with WiFi, is close to the parking garage as well as the pool deck and crossover to the Bay. Total convenience! The building is on the beach side of the island with a good view of the entire East end of Okaloosa Island, between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It is the best vacation destination for the family, golfer, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa. Because this building has oodles of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say that these are the most beautiful beaches that they have ever seen. You can relax on your private 4th floor balcony, and watch the sunrise over the island!
