Wonderful Week at the Beach!
Wonderful Week at the Beach!
We just returned from a beautiful vacation at Destin West. The condo was beautiful, tastefully decorated, and also very clean. There was ample room for mom and dad and our 4 kids. Two of them were so sad to leave their "bunk bed room!" The beaches in Destin are amazing. Although the sea was rough due to the hurricane in Mexico we all enjoyed playing in the beautiful white sand. Bill is very helpful and even recommended taking the kids to the Bay when the ocean was rough as the waters would be much calmer. It definitely was! And to boot we saw a lot of neat sea life over there like fish and TONS of hermit crabs! We also recommend Henderson Beach State Park. We hope to make this trip an annual one, we all loved it so much!

Great place to stay!!
Great place to stay!!
We had another wonderful trip to Destin West, Bay Side Resort. We have been many times over the years, and have experienced tons of memories. We love this Lanai Unit, it makes it so convenient to just walk out and right over to the pool, if you forget your sunscreen or your wrist band....no problem it is easy to go back and pick them up, and in just a few minutes you are back on your tube in the lazy river. The lazy river is so relaxing, there is no place like it. This makes our third stay in this unit and hopefully it won't be our last. The weather was our only drawback this year. It was cloudy and raining ALOT but we are used to that this year. We made it work by heading down to the movie theater and enjoying some movies and shopping. Plan to be back next year. We used to go to Panama City every year until we found Destin West. We have not been back to PC and don't feel that we are missing a thing. We also tried Waterscape which has wonderful landscaping and they also have a lazy river but it is no where near the size of the one at Destin West and not nearly as fun. I would say try Destin West first and then see if you can go back to where you stayed before. There is nothing that comes close in our opinion. We tell everyone we know about it.

Manager response: Dear Teresa....WOW! So pleased that you enjoyed Destin West so much. It really is the best location just as you described. We look forward to serving you again. Bill
We loved the location of this condo. We have 2 children, 4 and 6, who LOVED the easy access to the pool and lazy river. We will go for a ground level again on our next visit! Very clean room and property. We would have enjoyed the pools being open earlier than 9am...but that is our only complaint!

When we arrived at the Condo it looked really nice but we did a walk through before we unloaded and found that the window in the bedroom was shattered but still in tact. So I called Bill and apparently the problem was supposed to have been taken care of before our arrival. But everything worked out just fine. The condo had pretty much everything we needed. However the Condo needed some maintenance. The refrigerator leaked water everyday, the toilet ran unless you jiggled the handle, the TV's were a little outdated, and there were no TV's in the other room with twin beds for the kids, but overall it was a nice unit. Just needed a little bit of maintenance!! We loved our stay at the unit, and I would recommend anyone to stay there. The owner Bill was very nice to work with.

Manager response: Dear Kelly, It was a pleasure working with you and your family. I am pleased that you found me "nice to work with". We strive to provide the best service possible to our valued guests. That being said, I wish you had contacted me immediately regarding the maintenance issues. If you had just called me as we instruct all of our guests to do either at check-in or during your stay, I would/could have handled that sort of thing immediately. I did take your comment about the tv update seriously and we immediately purchased a new 40" flat screen for the living room. If you recall, we never list a small tv for the bunk room on our website. The broken window was unforeseen and totally beyond our control. However, it has been replaced. Thank you again for booking with us and we look forward to serving you in the future. Bill
Excellent location, very clean condo, larger than we thought. Exceeded our expectations. Lazy river and complex are outstanding!! You can walk to the Boardwalk for dinner, music, etc.

My wife and I stayed at the condo for the winter. We have previously stayed at Destin West. This condo was ideally located on the first floor with great accessibility to the pools, parking and street level. The unit was just the right size for my wife and I and we appreciated the amenities and the relationship we had with the owner Bill who responded quickly to questions we had about the unit.

Manager response: Thank you guys for vacationing in our colorful corner condo. Yes....our location is ideal for anyone staying at Destin West. Everyone loves having such easy access to everything. We trust you will come again for another extended stay with us. Bill & Shelley
It was a perfect vacation in Destin this year. It was our first time there and all we find was excellent. Nearby the pool. Only short ways to the funtastic beach. The weather in October was fine too. Be sure to come back soon. The owner is very friendly and help you whenever you need held. Deutsch: Wir waren das erste Mal in der Region Destin. Es war dort wirklich wunderbar. Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral am Pool und dem "Wasserstrudel". Kurze Wege ca. 5-7 min. Zum wunderschönen Strand. Mit etwas Glück sieht man dort auch schon mal Delfine. Wir waren die ersten Deutschen und können diese Örtlichkeit nur empfehlen. Sehr netter Vermieter der auch mal mit Rat und Tat zur Seite steht.

Great condo and owner was great!

I stayed here with my 6 year old and 8 year old boys. The owner, Bill, showed a lot of hospitality with the entire experience. He gives tips and recommendations on good resturaunts and things to do in the area. The unit was perfect for young kids who wanted to go back and forth to the lazy river a lot. We didn't need to ever wait for the elevator when going to the lazy river as the condo opened up directly to the lazy river/pool area. Parking was also really easy as it was directly underneath the unit and we could just walk up one floor to our door. The lazy river was so fun and I was really glad that the pool attendants checked for the wristbands. We have stayed at another place before with a lazy river and it was obvious that people from all over the beach were jumping it and it was really crowded. Here they just made sure you had the wristbands but were never rude about it which was great. The proximity to the pier was great and we had so much fun fishing with the boys. The unit was super clean and the king bed was SO comfortable. Overall, great experience.
