Recent Scenic Gulf Drive West reviews
"Great place to stay! Very short walk to public beach access."

"We just returned from our vacation and were extremely pleased with our stay at this property. I highly recommend the property. The photos on this site represent exactly what you see when you arrive. The unit is stocked with everything you could possibly want or need. Beds were very comfortable. The beach was gorgeous. The owner was very easy to work with and made us feel like guests in her home, not renters of a vacation business property. If you are considering this property, the stairs (unit is three floors and there are stairs to beach as well) can be a challenge for people with mobility issues. My 73 year old mother did okay, but we had to monitor her closely."

"After the drive with kids ranging from 2 to 19 ... it was really tiring, but once we got to the house we were ALL able to unwind and relax. The house was really clean and well kept, the kids enjoyed the pool as much as the beach. I LOVE the fact that it is in a quite neighborhood and close to everything we needed, the BEACH, the stores, the restaurants, etc.... This was our first family vacation, and I do not regret renting this house. We enjoyed our vacation and the house so much we did not want to leave. The owners are very nice, friendly and understanding. We had no problems with anything in the house. THIS HOUSE IS ON MY LIST OF RENTAL FOR OUR NEXT FAMILY VACATION !!!!"

"This was our first time staying here in Destin. We loved that we could see the gulf from the balcony and the big windows there lit the place well (the last place we stayed was dark and dreary and you couldn't see the water--not what you want for a beach vaca!). It was clean and had everything we needed for a low-maintenance week. The washer and dryer are small but will help keep the sand out of your suitcase if you're willing to run a few loads. We had to supply some toilet paper, dishwasher detergent, and laundry detergent of our own, but that's no big deal (there was enough dish soap and trash bags for us not to have to buy any more). Oh, and the pool wasn't noisy, though right below our balcony, so that was nice. Most we ever heard was a couple of kids during the day; we weren't awoken early or kept up late.
Our only complaint was the bed. After emailing Wes after the first night, we realized that the bed frame had fallen apart, and he came out as soon as he could with a new one, so that was awesome--thanks, Wes! Our sleep improved, but the box spring--new as it may be--is incredibly loud and creaky. I got more sleep near the end of the week thanks to Benadryling myself, which I can live with, but if you're a light sleeper unwilling to take meds, bring some earplugs with you.
Only other noteworthy thing I can think of for future guests is that Wes means it when he says check-out is at 10am sharp! At 9:58am all we had left to do was take out the trash, and the cleaning crew was knocking on our door and waiting in the hallway for us to depart. I'm glad we had taken the check-out time so seriously and weren't still packing and such!
We will more than likely stay here next year if it's available. We had a great experience with Wes--easy booking and all--and found the condo perfect for our needs. Looking at the pics of it above, two days into being home, I actually really miss it--it became a nice little home away from home. :)"
