                This condo is very darling! It was very clean and they left good directions on how to close up, etc. The kids loved the pool, the lazy river, and the hot tub. The view on the deck is so nice and so relaxing. I think the location with respect to places to eat and Destin was super. There was a slight walk to the beach, but that didn't bother us. It was a little difficult to find our way around at first, but we asked and found what we needed. ;)

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

                Manager response: Hey Starr, I'm so glad you had a great time and enjoyed the condo, pools, and all the restaurants close by on Okaloosa Island. The new Fudpucker's right next door to the bayside is great! It's so kid friendly and adults love it too! My son enjoyed the live alligators and the arcade. I believe the front desk at Destin West has maps so that you can better understand the beachside layout (like where the fitness room is located), etc.... But I probably need to laminate a copy of the map and keep that in the condo so that my tenants can get around more easily. But just give me a call anytime or text me and I can direct you if you ever have a question. That's what I'm here for! Thanks again for leaving a review. I'm so glad you had a good time. Please come again :) Shelley

                We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo! Although there were only 4 of us, I believe had we had another family with us we still would have felt it was very spacious and accommodating. The place felt homey and very comfortable. Loved the fact that we had our own private garage for entering and exiting the condo. Loved having the private Jacuzzi as well. The kids and adults thoroughly enjoyed staying in this home. The kids also loved having the Fudpuckers arcade within a 5 minute walking distance. We ended up driving to the beach over to the other side of the resort because we had so much stuff to transport for our days on the beach. If I were to say anything negative - it would be the outdated TV's in the condo. But - it was a beautiful condo and a gorgeous view of the bay. Very clean and very spacious. Would definitely recommend this condo! Bill is extremely helpful and attentive to questions and support. We did a Dolphin sightseeing tour/ snorkeling/ Shelling adventure through Destin Snorkel which the kids really enjoyed. McGuires and Dewey Destin for dinner.

We always love hearing back from our valued guests with such great feedback. Regarding some of the TV's, we are updating them and so appreciate your feedback. We look forward to serving you again.

                I searched extensively for "the place" to celebrate our 35th Anniversary. By all accounts, our first real vacation as empty nesters was a huge success! Your condo was clean, as pictured and the whole experience exceeded my high expectations. We spent 6 wonderful nights at Heron L02 - and expect to be back again and again! We may even invite our grown children and their families - we'll need to rent more than one of your condos! Everything was exceptional - from our arrival to our reluctant departure. Loved Destin West and the best condo in the whole place! We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, washer & dryer, the privacy, the garage, the hot tub, the lazy river - I read 2 books floating around and around last week! The BEACH! Great restaurants within walking distance. We loved the Black Pearl. The dolphins. We planned on an early start home to avoid late afternoon pop-up showers on the motorcycle (did we mention we loved that garage?) - but the dolphins conspired and put on a great show that kept us "at bay" on the balcony for a while! A perfect end to the perfect vacation. Thanks so much for your attention to detail and the care you put into this property. Our only regret: we wish we were still there!

                We absolutely loved staying in your condo!! At first I was disappointed that we didn't have access right off our patio to the walkway...but once we arrived we absolutely loved the setup. It gave us a feeling of privacy, and it was very easy to go out to the pools and lazy river. This was our 4th trip to Destin West and we all agreed your place was the best! Very roomie and had plenty of room for our entire family. The views from the patio are gorgeous and we loved watching the boats and kayaks. We rented a kayak for the week and had a fantastic time. The garage was an added bonus. Thank you again for how well equipped your condo is and for sharing it with the rest of us!

                Everything was great!!! Loved the view into the bay! Double loved the garage to store my small trailer and bike. Only thing I would change would be a softer master bed, but that is a personal feel. Would come back in a heart beat, daughter loved the water features and the close walk to the beach! One more thing need a gate to the next door resturant instead of walking to highway and back. But need exercise ! :)

                Our family stayed for a week a the condo. Even with the wetter than normal weather, we had a relaxing vacation. The condo is in a perfect location steps from the pool, lazy river , and BBQ area. If you like to fish this condo is located on the bay and a short walking from the ocean side pier. There are several restaurants and boat rentals in walking distance. Quick response from the owner when we had a lock problem. The condo is clean and has a good layout. We are looking forward to visiting again.

                This was our second time renting this condo from Shelley, and it is still the best vacation condo we have ever used. Overlooking the bay is so relaxing, but the beach and lazy river are just a short walk away. I beliebe this condo is in the best location of all of Destin West - love the garage entry. Everything is organized for ease of use - we especially love the keypad entry - no keeping up with who has the keys. The hot tub was enjoyed as well as the well furnished kitchen, large dining table and washer and dryer. The master suite was big enough to hold my daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. In fact, the 4 year old slept in the huge walk-in closet on the fold-up bed. She thought that was great! I highly recommend Destin West and this condo to anyone. Great memories were made for the second time!

                The property was exactly like advertised. The water views were so peaceful. We use to enjoy being on the gulf side but the closeness to the bay and the quietness of the location made this very enjoyable. The almost private pool was just a bonus. Bill you made everything so easy. We will definitely rent from you again.
