Destin West Beach and Bay Resort condo description

......ASK ME ABOUT OUR NIGHTLY RATES......

Our Destin West Villa has a first class view of both the beach and bay. Facing Destin, you can view 4 miles of undeveloped beach and see the beautiful skyline of Destin. What a view for the breathtaking sunrises. Okaloosa Island is a very family friendly vacation spot, which connects Destin to Fort Walton Beach.

Our soothing, colorful condo has a beachy and light cottage feel, with a touch of sophistication. You will smile with our cheerful colors that blend in with the aqua waters of the sea. Our efficiency condo is great for a getaway or a wonderful vacation for 4 here at Destin West, where you have access to amenities on both the beach side and the bayside.

The unit is located on the beach side, where you also have a private pool (heated during Winter) beneath the Villas. Be sure to watch the sun go down by the fishing pier and then walk to a beachside restaurant right out your door. Head to Howl at the Moon Comedy and Piano bar as you pass along different shops at the boardwalk. The Gulfarium is also within walking distance.

Our unit has a queen size bed and a queen sleeper sofa in an open floor plan (no door to the bedroom but wall separating the queen bed from the living room). There is a Flat Screen TV, DVD in the living area and in the master bedroom area. The bathroom has a big, relaxing deep set tub for a nice evening of soaking and relaxing. The bathroom also has a separate glass door shower. Except for the penthouse units, Villa 506 is one of only two condos with washer/dryer available. A big plus for stays over 3 nights!

There are MANY pools to choose from at Destin West. The bayside offers a 700 ft. lazy river, a heated pool with a waterfall flowing into it, and 2 large hot tubs in the center of the bayside complex. There is also a gradual decline pool that feeds into the Lazy River. Parents love the safety of their toddlers playing in the water.
The beachside complex offers a 5000 sq. ft. pool, a splash garden for the kids, a kiddy pool, and a large hot tub.

A SKYWALK or bridge connecting the beachside complex to the bayside complex makes using all of the amenities at Destin West a breeze! The beachside also has a state of the art FITNESS GYM right on the beach.
CHARCOAL GRILLS and PICNIC TABLES on both the bayside and beachside make grilling out inviting and fun. Or throw FRISBEE/FOOTBALL on the grassy areas by the grills on the bayside.

                    Condo was very clean and comfortable. Owners were great to work with and very responsive. Pictures accurately represent the condo. Walkways are open and it's 5th floor- a little dicey for those scared of heights, but it's not an unusual set-up for a condo-resort in the area. Beautiful view, exactly like the pictures! If you do your research on the condo floor-plan like we did, you will know about the accordion windows from bath to bedroom area- well they have been replaced by frosted glass and soon-to-be curtains. Very nice work too, it's quite pretty! The only thing I could possibly think of is that there was no salt and pepper. I knew there would be no supplies to speak of in general, but I guess I thought there would be salt. There are dishes, glasses, and a basic cookware set though. Salt is not really not much of a complaint to make- and we can't think of anything besides that- it was all so great and between the owners info and the previous reviews, it was easy to really get a true idea of what to expect. So make your plans accordingly and feel confident with this condo! We were very happy, and again it was very clean, made us feel at-home comfortable right from the start. One last thing- the door says V before the condo number. Don't try to get into the condo without the 'V', it's not yours!! Actually, also one more thing, if you are like me you read a lot of reviews for the date you are planning to get an idea of what to expect weather-wise. It was mostly cold and windy for us. People still went to the beach and waded, etc. We spent 3 of the warmest sunny afternoons at the beach playing in the sand. It's warmer if you sit on the sand, and sweatshirts were welcome, but we were still so glad to have been there. The heated pools at the resort were great too!

                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, people with disabilities, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                    Owner response: Thank you Mary for the review! We want our guests to have a great time and to enjoy themselves and it's hard not to in our Villa. Hope you'll come back soon-autumn is a time when many don't think about the beach but it is one of the best times to vacation. Thanks again!

                    We had an excellent time here. It was a cute little getaway - perfect for my husband and me and our 4 year old. It's bigger than a hotel room, but smaller than a 1 bedroom apartment - so a comfortable space with everything you need in it. Very short walk to the beach - the beach service was a great touch. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Plenty of towels, etc.

                    Recommended for: Families with young children, romantic getaway.

                    Owner response: Tiffany, Thanks for the review and the reminder that the Villa does provide a great little getaway and perfect for a couple and one child. And the beach service is a great lagniappe. Thanks, Sherry

                    Charming little villa, but adequate for our reasonably short stay. We used it to see more of the FL Gulf coast and enjoy the warmer weather. The facility would be good place to just sit and enjoy all the activity meeting other guests from around the country.

                    I only got to stay in this beautiful villa for 2 nights. I was traveling with 3 kids, 2 teens and 1 tween. The villa was a perfect fit for our needs. Everything was great! However, If you plan to stay longer, I think this type of villa is a better fit for a couple or a family with smaller children. DWBB is a lovely resort with plenty to do. I am a beach girl and it is VERY difficult to get the kids away from the amazing lazy river area long enough to get to the beach. I am not disappointed in the least about my stay but I do not want to mislead anyone either as I read other reviews to help me decide where to vacation. I want to be honest and fair so here are a few of my dislikes: 1) I like to eat my meals on the balcony, it is very spacious, BUT it faces the east and it was impossible for me to enjoy Breakfast with the direct sun beaming down, too bright. 2) Hwy 98, the only highway connecting Ft. Walton and Destin, is very close. I could hear the traffic all night. I guess if you live in the city it is not a big deal, but I found it annoying and very loud while trying to sleep and while trying to relax on the balcony. 3) No blow dryer. I forgot mine and the owner DID NOT say there was one there but it would have been nice. So, if you book here don't forget it! 4) While we did not plan to fix a lot of meals in the villa, there is not much prep area. Just an FYI. 5) The shutters between the bedroom and the bath seem strange to me. They offered visual privacy but not much else. My likes include: 1) The Décor-very tasteful, soothing color, beachy feel but not over the top where you feel like you are staying in a souvenir shop. 2) So convenient to parking deck! 3) Even though it is small it is creatively arranged so you have a place for everything. 4) Clothes steamer in bathroom cabinet was a great surprise! 5) Plenty of towels! Under the same circumstances I would stay here again.

                    Owner response: Thank you, Hope, for reminding us that the Lazy River is truly amazing and tha t there is so much to do at our beach and bay resort. You are right: this unit is ideal for 2 adults and 2 small children. We appreciate your attentiveness to detail and your comments will be helpful for our future guests. Please come back and stay with us for a longer period of time. At the beginning of March, our free beach service is available. It ends at the end of October. I hope you were able to take advantage of this $30/day free amenity. Sherry

                    Owner response: Hi Jennifer, Thank you for coming back for the second time! Please make it the third and more! We try hard to reply to requests or maintenance needs as quickly as we can so your time at our condo is as perfect as possible. Thanks for that opportunity. Sherry

                    My husband and I, and our 3 little ones, had an absolutely wonderful time at Destin West Beach & Bay Resort!! The villa that we stayed in was awesome. With 3 little ones, I greatly appreciated the cleanliness and the front load washer & dryer~ Extra plus. Also, it was such a blessing to have such wonderful people as Bill & Shelley as our villa owners. We highly recommend this villa!!!! Our children are still talking about the "super fun lazy river, movie nights in the pool, & watching the dolphins jump by the pier!" *Personal note to Bill & Shelley* Dear Bill & Shelley, Thank you for sharing your amazing property. We had "a super awesome time" as my kids put it~Smiles. We went by your list of favorites with regards to restaurants and WOW, every restaurant that you recommended~ we loved! We are forever grateful for your kindness, your detailed information concerning the villa, & your amazing lists of restaurants & things to do in Destin. By having all of that extra information outside of our just staying in your villa, you made our vacation excellent & with such ease. You truly go beyond the extra mile for your vacationers. God bless you both & thank you for our awesome family memories!

                    My boyfriend and I stayed Monday thru Friday week of September 9th. We planned this trip to celebrate our anniversary. All we both can say is.. PERFECT. The location was perfect. Being just minutes away from Destin but still feeling slightly secluded was wonderful. At the same time though the pier was merely a few minutes walk from the condos. And we had delicious lunches at Floyd's Shrimp House! The condo itself was gorgeous. The decor and set up truly added to the beach experience. Having a washer/dyer was a major plus. The sunrise views from the balcony were spectacular. The beach was just a minute or so walk as well. And the free beach service was a wonderful touch. Thank you for opening your condo to us and all so we may enjoy it. We WILL be back next year for our anniversary again. This condo and experience made our trip that memorable that we must make this a tradition. THANK YOU again. I highly recommend this property.

                    This was our third stay in this villa, and just like the previous two, this stay was great. Everything is so clean and comfortable, and the resort has incredible amenities. The only sad part was having to leave! Will definitely be staying a fourth time!

                    Owner response: Hi Melissa, Thank you for your third stay! Make it a fourth soon. With all the amenities it has, we think our Villa is perfect for that 3-4 day getaway too. And we appreciate guests like you. So glad we could make your stay fun and enjoyable. Sherry

                    The Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is in a great location. So many things in walking distance. The villa was perfect for my husband and me and well equipped. We only needed food and clothes. It was quiet and relaxing. The owners were great to work with and we look forward to visiting again.
