Destin West Beach and Bay Resort condo description
1 OF ONLY 10 UNITS DIRECTLY ON THE GULF!!
FREE BEACH SERVICE - PLATINUM FURNISHINGS- SPECTACULAR BEACH HOME – FAMILY FRIENDLY RESORT – LAZY RIVER – SPLASH GARDENS – MORE!
Come visit this incredible condominium at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort on Okaloosa Island which is directly ON the gulf. Our beautiful 4th Floor condo has the BEST view at Destin West! Our wrap-around porch gives you a 180 degree of spectacular views facing breathtaking sunrises. You cannot beat our condo at this wonderful family-friendly resort. We welcome you at our home. You won’t regret vacationing at this wonderful place.
Our condo is a truly unique ocean front vacation condominium with a wrap around balcony and full views to the East for those who enjoy morning coffee and watch the sunrise. Later in the evening, enjoy sunsets from the front of the balcony as it faces toward the South/Southwest. The sands of the emerald coast are directly below your Destin West vacation home on the Gulf. Again, there are only 10 condos directly on the ocean at Destin West with unobstructed views.
Our home rivals the most appointed condos at Destin West with designer touches throughout this elegant vacation home. Lively, radiant colors, crown molding, and other stylish touches grace the unit. Every piece at our Destin West Home away from home has a purpose and reflects the care taken to outfit this beautiful condo. Keen attention has been taken to harmonize every color, furnishing, and all accessories to make this unit a beautiful and relaxing environment for you to experience. Relax in the oversize couch, while recessed lights set the mood for the evening or lie back on our comfortable bed in the master and listen to the wave’s crash.
Our Destin West Gulf front JEWEL ON THE BEACH has been completely re-decorated in 2009 with new granite countertops and backsplash in the kitchen done in 2011. This condo home is in high demand from repeat guests that know exactly what to expect with features that include: Big Screen Flat Panel HDTV and HBO upgrade for those movie lovers! Crown molding, ceramic tile, bead board walls, and incredible art, tile floors throughout, butcher block and designer granite countertops in kitchen, UPGRADED LCD HDTV & HBO SERVICE, and WIRELESS INTERNET!
Think of our condo as your 'home away from home'. Walk out to your balcony and the only thing you can see is the tranquil gulf for miles. On the gulf, it is not unusual to see dolphins swimming just a few hundred yards from you. And of course our condo balcony could not be any closer to the ocean with 180 degree views of the Gulf. So you are sure to catch some spectacular sights. We also provide COMPLIMENTARY BEACH SERVICE--A $175 VALUE! No need to drag your chairs and umbrellas to the beach.
But not only is our condo and the beach wonderful, but we have the most amazing amenities here at Destin West. Your kids will have so much to do you will never have to leave. The 700 ft. floating lazy river on the bayside is truly unique to Destin West Beach & Bay Resort. There is a zero entry pool that leads to the lazy river where even the smallest of children can frolic and play. Surrounding the lazy river are 2 large spas placed amid the tropical palms, as well as a waterfall pool (heated in the winter).
Directly on the beachside and just steps from our condo once exiting the elevator is the 5,000 sq ft pool. This pool is the largest on the Florida Panhandle. There is a kiddy pool and a hot tub on the beachside as well. Additionally, there is a smaller, quainter Villa pool by the front entrance. This is also heated seasonally and is outside.
And, if all of this is not enough, the kids also have a splash park to entertain themselves. This is located directly on the beach and next to the beachside pool. A splash park is just that, a park that shoots, squirts, and spills water out of fun crabs, towers, contraptions, and more. And we haven't even gotten to the beach yet. Once you arrive at the beach, you will find the friendly attendants ready to seat you in your complimentary full size umbrella and 2 beach chairs. This is a $175 SAVINGS FOR YOU!!

Great Last Minute Vacation-Colorful Beautiful Condo-Balcony Perfect-Dolphin Sightings
Great Last Minute Vacation-Colorful Beautiful Condo-Balcony Perfect-Dolphin Sightings
Our beach getaway was a last minute decision, so thankfully Shelley was accommodating in getting all the details covered in a short amount of time. From the photos you can tell the decorator tossed out the boring 50 shades of beige color chart in designing this condo. The place is beautiful and literally shouts-Hey, we're at the beach, have a great time. Step onto the wrap around balcony and you will know you are there. The balcony is perfect for meals, and it is situated to view both sunrise and sunset. Bring the binocs, because you are sure to see some great dolphin action close to the beach. The unit had everything we needed including a speedy wifi connection. No reaching down the hall for a signal, the router is right in the living room. We loved the location. Fourth floor is not too high nor too low for perfect that perfect beach view. You are about 10 steps away from the elevator, and when the door opens the you are facing the fitness center, a large pool is on your right and the beach walk is on the left. The free beach service is great. Let them know you have arrived and thereafter you will find you name on a sign reserving two chairs and an umbrella. If you have ever stayed at the Ramada next door, you know how great their rock swimming pool is, well as part of the amenity package you are welcome to use it. Along with that, the lazy river is a five minute walk away at bayside. The grounds are very nice and the night lighting impressive. Although we consumed many great meals at the local restaurants, I want to highlight one in particular. McGuire's Irish pub just blew us away. Some of the best steaks and trimmings we have ever had. Not only that it was two buck margarita night. It is a slightly crazy, fun place, and if you are not lucky enough to be Irish, you can change that for just one dollar. All in all, it was a great short vacation, and we hope to return many times in the future. Thanks again Shelley.

Manager response: Hey Patrick! Well said!! I only wish I could have had a McGuire's Irish Pub messy burger or Shepherd's Pie (my fav.) with you guys! McGuire's is great and fun. It's part of my "Shelley's Favorites" list I give to you guys when you rent from us explaining where to go, eat, etc..... I loved your descriptive review! You are a great writer :) I am so pleased y'all had a wonderful time and enjoyed the condo so much. I do absolutely love the colorful decor in this particular condo. I think it is so very cheerful and tasteful. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain what you loved about your stay at Destin West and the condo. It really helps other future tenants to hear about your stay. We'd LOVE to have you back anytime. Have a blessed year! All my best, Shelley
This was our third year in a row staying here. The condo was perfect as always. It has an amazing view of the ocean with excellent amenities. The management of this condo has changed and I cannot say enough good things about Shelley. She is on top of it when it comes to communication. Highly recommend this condo and Shelley.

Manager response: Hey Jim, You are so kind. Thank you also for being such a wonderful person to have stay. I know it was a bit of a scare to have that tropical storm heading our way before you came. Thanks for being calm and patient during the situation. I am so glad everything cleared up for you guys. Also, thanks to you, tenants can now appreciate the new stock pot that is no longer a safety hazard to others with the dented bottom (who knew!?) Thanks for the heads up about that. I want to make sure you guys have everything you need. You might not know this, but I also own a condo at Destin West on the bayside and manage other condos at D.W. for my friends and family members. This will be my 10th year! I treat each condo I manage as if it were my own. I think it makes a difference and I really enjoy helping people have great vacations. :) Please come again anytime!!! Sincerely, Shelley :)

We were in Destin for a 50th Anniversary with a group of 35 people. Our group had condo's rented all over the property. Our condo was by far the best property! The owners did a great job stocking the condo with everything you might need (unlike many other units). Plus, the decor of the unit was the most up-to- date. The beach and view were spectacular. Would highly recommend this condo! We plan on returning next year!

This condo was absolutely adorable and the perfect size for our family! I would highly recommend a stay here. The property manager was very accommodating and gave us lots of helpful tips for planning a great vacation in Destin. (Went to Helen Back Bar, as suggested by Shelley, and we loved the pizza!) A bonus to your stay at this condo is complimentary beach chairs & umbrella reserved in your name for the week. Nice!

Manager response: Hey St. Louis Family! I am so glad you enjoyed this cheerful condo! Yes, that FREE beach service is soooo nice isn't it? It really makes the vacation relaxing and enjoyable. I am so glad you had such a great time and enjoyed the condo. I am also glad you took advantage of my "Shelley's Favorites" I give to my tenants to help you have a more enjoyable stay in our area.....the beautiful Emerald Coast! Thank you for being such great tenants. We appreciate those who take great care of our condos more than you know ;) We hope to have you back again!! Have a great rest of the summer. Shelley :)
We just returned from our week in Destin West and we had a wonderful trip. The weather was perfect sunny and 82 and we had no rain the whole week. The condo has a nice beachy feel, was clean and was totally comfortable for our family of four. After looking around the resort, I honestly think that this unit has the best view in the resort. Everything about this trip was convenient. From working with Shelley and Bill (who are super nice by the way), the complimentary beach service, the closeness of the pool and splash pad, Fudpuckers is across the street and accessed by crossing the sky bridge, plus the resturants at the boardwalk which is also a short walk. The biggest bonus with the restaurants was that there was no wait at any if them. They were alot of people there but not swamped. We have two boys ages six and two and this is one of the first vacations that we were actually able to relax and just enjoy being together. I am a picky person and I really have no complaints. We had a blast and will definitely be returning.

Manager response: Hey Patty, Thank you for your review! That was a wonderful summary of the condo and area. I love that Destin West has so many options for your kids and it's all FREE! Plus with the Boardwalk within walking distance AND the new Fudpucker's, it really makes vacationing so convenient without having to get in all the traffic. May and October are my favorite months in Destin/FWB so you picked a fabulous time to come! #401 does have amazing views, doesn't it? You can't get any closer to the ocean. Thank you again for being a pleasure to work with. I'll tell Bill (Dad/partner). He's a great guy too and we hope to make things easy and pleasurable for our tenants. We are so glad you and your family had a blast :) That's what it's allll about! I hope to hear from you next year! All my best, Shelley :)
Wonderful condo in a fantastic facility..What a view!!
Wonderful condo in a fantastic facility..What a view!!
We stayed in this condo for a week in early May....although the weather was still a bit cold we had an amazing time here. Simply amazing view, we ate almost every meal out on the large balcony. Kitchen was furnished with just about everything we needed, everything was really clean and tidy when we arrived. The walk-in showers were really great after a long day at the beach/pool. Since the beach was a bit cold and windy when we went, we spent a lot of time on the bayside of the complex enjoying the lazy river and heated pool. My 2 year old loved the Splash Gardens kiddie area as well. We loved the Boardwalk area which is really close with great restaurants and shopping. This place is really close to downtown as well, my wife enjoyed shopping there a few afternoons. Overall a very good vacation and we will definitely be looking at the same place next year.

A wonderful getaway!

We so enjoyed our long weekend in the dead of winter in this beautiful ocean front condo. The sunsets were so incredible and this unit is truly on of the best locations in this development. Furthermore, the owner was incredible to work with, and even helped us by shipping back some clothing that we inadvertently left in the dryer. Highly recommend! Our only disappointment was that several of the local stores were closed and slated to reopen in February. The local restaurants, the lovely views and beaches, and the comfortable condo made for a great trip/experience regardless.

Manager response: Susan, Thank you so much for your review and for sending me the amazing sunset photo taken from the balcony of #401. The clouds were spectacular! You have amazing sunrise and sunset views from this condo, don't you? You and your husband were a pleasure to have. You make mailing back bathing suits and towels no big deal ;) I am so sorry about some of the local shops being closed. I have not had that happen to me but I will have to find out which ones they are so I can redirect my winter tenants to local shops that are OPEN! I know the SanDestin Outlets are always open!! Haha. I am glad everything else made up for it. We look forward to your return soon. Sincerely, Shelley :)
My husband and I spent most of December in this gulf front condo and truly enjoyed each day. The living room and master bedroom have breathtaking views of the ocean. Watching the sun rise and set each day from the balcony was the best part of the trip. Also, we were able to watch the dolphins most mornings as they made their way to the pier.The condo itself has a fully equipped kitchen, extremely comfortable master bed, and roomy bathrooms. Bill, the manager, was readily available when we had questions and promptly attended to any issues. The workout room is directly below this condo and has a great variety of machines. Food in Destin was good everywhere, but we found the McGuire's lunch special for 6.99 and frequented their often. (Although this condo is on the 4th floor, the elevator is right outside the door, which makes packing stuff to the beach a breeze too.)

We are so glad you had such a wonderful vacation! You are such a great return tenant and you are always a pleasure to have. We look forward to having you again in the fall! See you soon!

I have never been to west Florida and boy was I spoiled!!! From the Condo to the view of the Gulf I was overwhelmed with beauty. I was a little lost at first but the rental company made it so easy by giving me a package of information every question I had was answered from were to get gas to were to go to get a nice breakfast. I knew were to go for everything. It was so stress free. I really loved this Condo it was so clean the floors were just cleaned the furniture and kitchen area were so up to date I felt like I was in a magazine cover for Coastal Living.The view of the Gulf was so close and the porch was so big I could just relax and drink my coffee every morning watching the sea life and birds. I also enjoyed watching the jets fly by, such interesting planes. The chairs and umbrella on the beach were complimentary and for someone that came as far as we did one less thing to worry about. Truly a relaxing experience looking forward to coming back and staying at the Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. We will see you in March:)
