very good location within building and sandestin complex.
"The condo's new owners had recently upgraded all appliances in the kitchen which was well stocked with pans, dishes, etc. Bedrooms were separated by living area and each had an ensuite. King beds were very comfortable. Being able to see out 3 sides was a plus and since we were at the end of a short hall with no other apartments, noise was none existent.
Shuttle runs at regular intervals around resort but we used our vehicle to get to golf course(s) in Sandestin complex.
Washer is on the smaller size as are most stackables so plan laundry ahead of time. Take your own, laundry and kitchen soap, toilet paper etc depending on the length of your stay.
Complex is very secure with a guard at main gate, codes to get into the parking complex, front door and beach area.
Sandestin location is great for getting to the 30A area - we enjoyed the restaurants in that area much more than in "downtown" Destin. Grocery store is a 5 minute drive away
The property manager returned all emails and phone calls very efficiently (even when she was away). Deposit was returned promptly.
I just found it a little odd that credit cards were not accepted since sending cheques or money orders from Canada is not easy to do and many people do not have access to paypal.
Cannot comment on how crowded beach/pool area would be in peak season since in Feb we had no problem!
Definitely a great place to rent."

"We just got back from this vacation and we couldn't believe the amazing accommodations of this unit! This place was stunning and looked like it had just recently finished a remodel (maybe not, but it looks like it was close to brand new!). The furnishings were simple but elegant, definitely not what I was expecting from a rental unit. This is our 4th year in Westwinds and this has been our favorite unit by far! We've normally stayed on the West side of the building and were concerned that since this one was east facing that the other buildings on the Sandestin property would obstruct the view, but that was not the case at all, still gorgeous views and watching the sunrise was stunning in the mornings! Each room was simply decorated, with plenty of storage space and not to many things sitting around (we have small children so generally end up moving small decorative objects to keep it from getting broken or choked on). The kitchen was amazing and well equipped with beautiful granite and stainless appliances. There was ample room in the dining area for us to eat several meals family style at the table, but also a bar for the kids to sit at and eat. The only problem we had was with the fridge, the ice maker was broken, but the property manager quickly sent someone to fix it. But even after it was fixed, it was very slow to make ice. No worries because we usually end up buying ice for our coolers anyway. The fridge door also didn't close with a simple swing of the door, it required you to actively push it closed....again not even close to affecting the pleasant nature of our surroundings, just something minor to note. I cannot emphasize enough how overwhelmed we were at the absolutely amazing condo and can enthusiastically recommend this unit for anyone looking to stay at Westwinds!"

"My mother-in-law, father-in-law, husband and I enjoyed 4 nights in this unit! We were very comfortable! Things were in good working order, clean, and comfortable! The directions and instructions we received from Mrs. Phillips were easy to understand and we had no problem getting into the property, room, pool, etc. It was really easy for us to login to the free wifi (which is super important to us)! We promptly received our $300 deposit back after the room was found in good condition. I would highly recommend this unit and this renter! We will definitely be returning!"

"My family has stayed several times at Westwinds in various units depending on the size of our group. It is consistently an excellent stay. We love the location right on the beach with a great pool and spa, a small pool grill, and a very efficient staff. The unit was nicely upgraded and spotlessly clean, and the unit was ready when we arrived. Great trip!"
