“Great winter hideout!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Rented for Jan and Feb 2014 and sort of escaped NY winter. Colder than expected but whole east coast was frozen. Nice 1bdrm unit, well appointed, VG grounds with pools and spas, secure, covered parking. Right price for snowbirds. Easy access to dining and shopping. Good older crowd. VG fitness room with nice equip. Lost a few lbs. Will come back if we can. Good value. Give it a try. Only gripe is sleeper couches suck for chairs and fridge is noisy.

Room Tip: Tile floors were freezing during cold snap. Unit was over parking garage.

This is our third time to Waterscape and we love it! We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit in the A building. Heated pool and hot tubs came in handy since the weather was a tad cold (didn't bother the kids, but it did us!). Our unit had games in it, so on the day it stormed we were able to play Monopoly and Uno. The unit itself was nice - great TV's and furniture was all really nice!
The unit was A416. The mattresses in both rooms were really great. There was constantly staff around the resort cleaning and doing work.

Things to remember if renting a condo:
Bring cleaning supplies (they give you a few dishwasher tablets and towels, but you need to bring everything else).
Bring your sand toys and swim toys
Don't forget your beach towels (much bigger than the standard white towels in every condo)

There are grills on site and the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans and utensils if you are planning to cook in. There is a publix just across the bridge, a tom thumb on the island and a gas station about a block away. There is a liquor store across the street.

Restaurants we love:
Helenback's -- great pizza and nachos on the bay
Bauchamps
props brewery in ft. Walton -- great burgers
old bay steamer -- great seafood
pompano joe's - great seafood on the water

You can easily walk to the boardwalk along the beach or side walk -- great shopping and we liked the crab restaurant too!

Just returned from a 5 night stay at the Waterscape Condo in A629. The place was everything it said, condo beautiful, clean, quiet, view of Gulf (not full but still great view). The resort - wonderful, from lazy river, hot tubs, pools, the beach. Within walking distance to many things. Time to enjoy the beach. We will be heading back next year. Can't wait! Miss the place already and just left yesterday!

My family of 5 stayed here in early October, 2013. This condo is an excellent condo for families with young kids. There is a lazy river, zero entry pool, lilly pad pool, heated pool, and more for young kids. The beach is very nice. All rooms have a view of the gulf/beach. Everyday we saw dolphins right off the beach. There are several close restaurants and you are only 6-7 min from the Destin Harbor with many great dining options. We were very pleased with our stay at Waterscape.

We really enjoyed staying here. The condos are right on the beach and easy to get to with the boardwalk. There is what I would call a miniature waterpark right in the middle with lazy river, multiple pools, and the kids could spend all day crossing the floating lily pads if we didn't make sure we made them spend time on the beautiful beach!

Great condo with ocean view. The beach is clean and beautiful. What is really impressive is the pool area!Waterscapes has a lazy river with tubes as well as the best young children's water play area I have seen. It is perfectfor toddlers and younger ones. Love this condo and what it has. Definitely one to return to next year.

Directly on the beach and tons of amenities. Toddler water park area, kids-teens water park area, heated pool and lazy river. Love the free DVD kiosk (similar to redbox) and the poolside lunch/snack/drink area. Only 5 miles from Destin.
