ReviewsWrite a review
My family and I stayed in this unit for our fall break. The unit was beautiful and comfortable. Nothing like opening up the sliding doors and letting that gulf breeze just flow right in. The pools were all great, and we especially enjoyed the lazy river on the bay side, which is an easy walk over using the breezway on the 3rd floor. Great beach service, beautiful weather, delicious restaurants, and lots of fun and relaxation. Highly recommend this unit. Would definitely return.

Owner response: Tammy and family, thank you so very much for choosing to stay with us and also for the very kind words! It's always a pleasure to have such great guests. We welcome you back any time!
The property is well maintained and the amenities available at the Destin West property and the Ramada are quite nice. We found the beach lovely as well. We were disappointed in the wifi capabilities and glad that my husband had completed his work before we left home. (He teaches online and needs to be able to contact his students when we are away.) It would have ruined his vacation if he had not submitted his grades and could not access the Internet. We enjoyed meals at the Shrimp Basket and the Donut Hole but would not recommend the Black Pearl ( inadequate portion, poor service).

Owner response: Thank you for your review of the condo. I'm sorry for the difficulties with the WIFI connection at the beginning of your stay. Our issues with the provider have been resolved and the system is working.
The room was very nicely decorated, all the amenities that we needed. The kids loved the lazy river across the way & the pool. Me on the other hand LOVED the beach & the chairs being set up before all of the other people were out and about. I did not like the fact that people can set their chairs in front of yours on the beach since ours were sets up but no biggy. The only downside to our vacation at all was the fact that the balcony is on the opposite side of the building from the breeze. It does over look the pool so if you have teenage children then it was safe to leave them in the room while you are out at the pool. Our youngest daughter loved the fact that there was a movie showing out at the pool on a couple of nights of our stay. It's a very long walk from the parking garage to the rooms BUT if you can find a cart then you should not have any issues. There are 2 restaurants in the area that will always have our business when we go back. Ole Bay Steamer & Sealand Steak Seafood & Pasta!! You can't get any better than that =)

"It was everything and more than we expected!"
This was our first trip to the beach. The condo was exactly as it was described. Overall it was a great experience however since it was our first trip and staying in a condo there would have been some things that would've been helpful to know, such as bring paper towels, toilet paper, and condiments for food. I'm sure I could've found all of that kind information out had I looked on the Internet ahead of time but didn't think about it. That is really minor compared to the awesome experience we had though! Bill had great communication with us regarding the rental ahead of time, and I loved the section with his personal recommendations that was very helpful and we ended up eating at one of the restaurants he suggested. I really liked having a keyless entry for the condo so that I didn't have to keep track of a key. Thank you for opening your home to us - we had a wonderful time!

I cannot say enough great things about this place! It was perfect! We stayed here for a week during my 32nd birthday and I must say it was probably one of the best ways I've ever spent my birthday! The condo was awesome. It was clean, nicely decorated (I loved the artwork), and had any and everything we could have ever needed during our stay. My son (age 8) stayed in the bunk room and thought it was the coolest thing in the world. He loved the bunk beds and having his very own television! I could tell a lot of thought went into the condo and making sure guests had everything they need. This was my first time renting a condo at the beach and Bill made the experience wonderful! The packet of information that he provided before the trip was full of useful things and came in very handy! The weather was beautiful the entire time we were there and I really enjoyed spending time sitting on the balcony and watching the ocean. The furniture on the balcony was fantastic and the tall chairs made for a great view! The beach service that came with the condo was also very handy! It was so nice to be able to have a place every day already reserved for us so we didn't have to fight for a place in the sand. Thank you to the owners for sharing this little piece of paradise with my family! I will definitely be returning next year!

Wonderful Condo with a beautiful view.
We received first class service from the owner, who went above and beyond to make our vacation one of the best we've had in Ft. Walton Beach. They provide a wonderful information package before your arrival so you can plan your activities. The local air show with fireworks on Thursday nights in the Destin Harbor is one of our family favorites. The condo is beautifully decorated with all the amenities you could possibly want and the floor plan is great, especially the bunk room. All electronics are new and HD, which is great when traveling with children and gaming consoles! The condo is on the top (6th) floor closest to the ocean and the view is magnificent. We loved watching the dolphins while drinking coffee on the balcony.

Fabulous Family Vacation
What a beautiful beach and beautiful home! Our family of four had a fabulous time while vacationing at this Destin West condo! It felt like home away from home. The condo is beautifully decorated, extremely neat and clean, very comfortable, and perfectly located on the beach. The pools were very nice and one of the highlights of the trip for our boys (ages 10 and 7). We visited during the month of October (2011) and had great weather. So convenient to have umbrellas and chairs waiting for you on the sand every morning. This area has so many nice restaurants to choose from. The kitchen is well stocked in the condo if you choose to cook any of your meals. The beds were really comfortable and bathrooms really nice. The bunkbeds were a big hit with our 7 year old. He even had his own television to watch from bed! We would highly recommend this condo and beach for vacation or a quick get away. The owners were extremely nice and easy to work with. We will be visiting Destin West again for sure!

Piece of Paradise!
Thank you for sharing your "piece of paradise" with us. It was a great Mothers and daughters get away. The condo, pools, and beach were just wonderful. The hospitality of the staff at Destin West was great as well. We loved the location as it was right in the middle of all the great restaurants.

About the owner: Hello! This is part of our family and we are happy to invite you to our little piece of paradise. We now live in Tennessee after many years on the Florida Gulfcoast. We love the beach and all it has to offer and know you will enjoy it as much as we do! Bill, Constance and the kids
Why the Owner Chose Destin West Beach and Bay Resort:
It was a great opportunity to have something right on the beach. Okaloosa Island offers some great family opportunities. Great beaches, some great food and entertainment within walking distance make it a great location. Not quite as crowded as Destin and not quite as remote as Navarre...this is a perfect balance.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Lots of water! Of course the beach and gulf are just steps away, but you also have the benefit of lots of fresh water in all of the Destin West water amenities including the lazy river, the giant pool, the other smaller and heated pools and the splash park. The fitness center is well equipped and airconditioned so when you've had enough sun...it's a great place to burn off some of those vacation calories. Gulfarium is just down the road and the boardwalk is great.
