Recent Westwinds reviews

  • Absolutely the Best!!

    "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!"

  • 10 week stay

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: GBR provided good service while we stayed and were very fast at fixing both the constantly running toilet and the broken heat pump, even offering to move us to a unit in another building. We loved the placement of the unit, but we were very disappointed at the level of cleaning on our arrival when compared to other units and agencies we have dealt with. We did inform the office, but not immediately. Admittedly, in fairness to GBR they stated they have a high standard for cleaning crews and we should have told them immediately to rectify the situation. However, first impressions counted with us and we felt that paying for a substantial cleaning fee of $160 should guarantee a substantial level of cleaning so we re-cleaned much of the area ourselves to our satisfaction and did not wish the possibility of the original cleaning crew returning disgruntled. In fairness, Gibson Beach Rentals offered to clean the bedcover immediately, and did so. But from the first night and many days later we found many items very off-putting - many of them places hands could not avoid touching; the back of doors, including main entry door, all around handles, light switches, and in the case of the one bathroom, coffee or coke runs down the door frame. These were in plain sight and so noticeably dirty as was the ingrained dirt on the ottoman and the rugs. The agency replied that washing wall and paint areas take more time and usually such things are noted on their annual inspection and deep clean but due to the high occupancy through the fall, they were unable to schedule the deep clean before our arrival. We sincerely hope that this year the deep clean will include the rugs and some of the upholstered items because the unit is a good place to stay otherwise and the rental agency has acted both professionally and been very helpful."

  • What more could you ask for??

    "This was our first trip to the Sandestin area, but will not be our last! This unit has everything you could ever ask for. Beautifully decorated, big bedrooms, and what a balcony view!! My family of 4 had more than enough room and our two children LOVED the bunk beds. We didn't have to purchase a thing besides groceries. beach chairs, beach toys and an umbrella were provided and they even had a boogie board. The resort itself was clean and absolutely beautiful and you cannot beat the shuttle service to Baytown Warf. We had an excellent stay!"

  • 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."
