Recent Scenic Gulf Drive West reviews
One of our favorite places to stay in Destin
"This unit has it all: spaciousness, high end furnishings and appliances, huge ocean front balcony as well as side and back balconies, THE best equipped kitchen with every size pan and serving dish you could every need, all the spices required for cooking, super comfortable patio furniture, and mattresses which are heavenly! It also includes a free set up at the beach. The only down comment was from the occupant in the queen bedroom that has no attached bathroom. This room does not have a TV, a dresser, nor bedside tables with drawers. We've stayed here several times and love the easy and quick access to the beach plus the exercise room and the security all the way around. With only 20 units in this building, the beach is never crowded and parking is great. While staying over Memorial Day weekend, we were able to enjoy the beach while sitting on the front row of chairs, unlike other more congested complexes. I just have one regret: I wish we could have stayed longer!"

"We went to Destin so my husband's team could play in an Ultimate Frisbee tournament. This is our second time staying at Pineapple Palms with several teammates and our 2 kids. Everyone really enjoyed the house. I love that we don't have to go to a separate location to check-in and get keys, like with other houses we've rented. The house has been very clean both times we've gone. I love the layout of the house, as there is plenty of sleeping room and privacy for everyone. We had a blast in the pool and the hot-tub was perfect for everyone to soak their achey muscles after playing in the tournament. Cheryl is very courteous on the phone, and the management is quick to respond to anything you may need. We hope to stay there again in the future, longer next time!"

"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. :)"
