I am the owner, and it is my pleasure to run a business that creates vacation experiences for our guest! We own two additional units both of which are extremely close to this one in the building and another at Azure and Destin West. Our properties have over 100 reviews on VRBO averaging 4.5+ stars amongst these properties.

It is my goal to provide an excellent vacation experience for our guest, and we do our best to keep our units unique and fully stocked with items you would expect to have in your own home. This three-bedroom unit is located just high enough for those wishing to watch the little ones from the balcony at the splash pool. Three bedroom units are unique at Waterscape as the kitchen is nearly three times the size of our two-bedroom unit, the balcony is the largest in the building at 10 feet deep, and the bunk alcove allows four private sleeping areas! All of this provides multiple families more comfort.

As the owner, I am accessible before, during, and after your stay. Finally, our management company which is located next door can handle immediate needs or emergencies. This is a convenience most VRBO owners don’t provide.

This unit is extremely convenient to your car, the splash pool, three Weber gas grills, and the quieter (seasonally heated) pool.


Generally, units closer to the sand will cost more to rent, and will be further from parking. Please keep in mind the entire complex is located on the beach and every unit is a short walk to the ocean!

Waterscape is shaped like a U, this means only 12 units are directly parallel to the ocean without an angled view or distance of about 80-100 yards to the sand. The left side of the U is the A building, the bottom is the C building, and the right side is the B building. All of what makes Waterscape the best resort for kids in the Destin area are the pools that lie in the middle of the U.

Our A225 unit is located one unit from entrance to the interior hallway in the A building. Most units do not have access via an interior climate controlled hallway. This entrance is the closest location in the A building to the COVERED parking garage and back entrance to the splash pool. This means you can access pools, grills, and parking without getting on an elevator in less than 30 seconds. Our C300 and C306 units are located one level up, or effectively second floor as the pool is on the second level. You can park 25 feet from the front door of either unit. Access to the pools and our A225 unit from these two units is also extremely convenient. One can go down the elevator to the second level or take one flight of stairs.

If you want to see the pools and resort grounds, you should stay in the C building, or in even numbered units in the A or B building. If you want things quieter, the odd numbered units in A or B face the outside of the property. Nearly all the odd numbered units in A & B will have a narrow view or no view of the ocean between the buildings. The new hotel next to the A building is scheduled to be completed spring 2017.


My wife and I had young kids under the age of eight when we purchased our Waterscape units. We found over the years most our time was spent around the splash pool with the slide and the grills for cooking. We also found that we seem to bring half of our house with us on vacation. Being extremely close to the car and the splash pool area is a no brainer for convenience.


Most of these units had one of a handful of furniture packages. The sofas, TV’s, bed frames, and carpet are the issue. We have had to replace all these items as they were either broken, disgusting, or too small in the case of TV’s.


During the busy season guest, must arrive at 7:00 AM to even consider getting on the front row, because of the placement of the chairs. I find I can get closer to the beach without worrying with how early my day starts using my own chairs. Therefore, we provide our guest with four chairs and two umbrellas during their visit.

About Rick Angle

It was always my mom's dream to own a condo in Fort Walton Beach. My wife and I adopted this dream and were fortunate to make it come true. We were blessed to be able to purchase units during the downturn in the market. After seeing this could actually become a business we started DESTIN WEST ESCAPES! Each year we improve on our ability to deliver a solid vacation experience for our guest. It is my sincere desire to be a small part of your families vacation memory making experience!

Rick Angle purchased this condo in 2014

What makes this condo unique

My favorite aspect of Waterscape is the resort style pool area, and convenience of never needing to get in the car after the first visit to the grocery store. Our unit is one of the largest on the beach and will sleep 11 comfortably in beds.

Fantastic property, amazing condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week!! Waterscape is such a nice resort. Our condo was perfect! Updated, large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably, and had all the amenities we could have needed for the week. The owner, Rick, was so helpful throughout the process! He even took time (about 35 minutes) one day when I unexpectedly called him, to tell us about the area and everything it has to offer! I am so happy we went with this condo for our vacation, and recommend it to both families and those without children! If we are ever in the Ft Walton/Okaloosa/Destin area again, we will absolutely stay at Waterscape, with the same owner. Thank you for everything!

Great relaxation in and outside of condo, grills were cleaned so well, pools were fabulous but lazy river and larger pool are not heated if your going in cooler weather but one pool was. We got there a little early and was allowed check in shortly thereafter, upon arrival the key to closet was locked up in main office and would not be accessible until Monday morning after ten, but no worries the maid called the owner and two new chairs and umbrella was delivered upon checkin. Excellent customer service. Beds were very comfortable as was furniture on balcony and living area. Stocked kitchen was appreciated with dishes and stemware. Short 5 to 10 min walk to beach. Car needed to drive around. Parking abundant in parking garage on third level outside condo door. Would return again.

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is exactly as pictured - very comfortable, clean and convenient. We had 4 kids and 5 adults and enough space for everyone to be comfortable. Having 3 bathrooms is so necessary for large groups and we were glad to have them! The furniture was well maintained and comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. With such a large crowd, we needed lots of pantry space and this kitchen didn't disappoint. We were able to stock all our groceries for 5 days in the pantry without having bags and items cluttering the countertops. The dining table with 2 benches also added to the convenience. We had a couple of sit down dinners and everyone had a spot! As we were there in December, we didn't use the pool, but did take advantage of the gym which had a nice assortment of machines and free weight options. Lastly, the parking was outstanding! As we weren't there in the busy season, there was likely more vacancy than busy months, but the parking is just steps from the unit. With the luggage carts and close proximity, we loaded and unloaded in a matter of minutes! We had a terrific stay and would select this unit again. Thanks to the owners!!

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and had a lot of room! It was very well stocked for cooking and the room for beach gear/toys was so nice. All the pools and amenities of Waterscape is so nice especially for families. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to go to Ft Walton. We also plan on trying to book it again next year!

Great trip and great location. Clean and very much a place we would stay again. Condo had everything we needed and it was nice having all the beach gear handy right outside the room. The only complant we had was the air filter needed to be changed ASAP. It was so clogged up air was not moving very well which caused the temp not to cool well. We notified the front desk on Tuesday am of our stay and they said would send a maintenance man to fix. When we called back Tuesday pm to ask about it & they acted as if it was no big deal and they would get to it eventually. A maintenance man finally came on Friday afternoon to change. Also there was dust an inch thick on the master ceiling fan. We cleaned it off so we could use the fan at night.
