  • review of waterscape

    "Unit was clean. Most of the unit is in good shape other than a few items: needs some paint touch-up here and there in double bed bedroom, some of the pots and pans are showing their age, dresser in master needs some slides replaced so be careful and watch your toes - the drawers can fall out. Granite countertop seam has cracked and collects food; why there is even a seam in that small of a slab I do not know. Plenty of storage in the bedrooms, decent closet space, HUGE bathrooms. I could easily live in a unit that size with both of our younger children. Pool noise was not a problem - The sliding doors really block out the noise well. If you were on the balcony after 22:00 you could hear the waves breaking as well as the wind rushing through the palm trees over the sound of the pool. Property was fairly well maintained. the upper kiddie-pool could greatly benefit from a deep cleaning - there is some sort of black staining in some of the shady areas. Property is within walking distance of the Pier and several shops/restaurants."

  • Couldn't have been more satisfied !!!

    "I'll start off by saying that I must have looked at well over 100 condos on VRBO when planning our trip. I narrowed it down to Okaloosa Island based on the slightly lower prices and less crowded beaches than in Destin proper. I chose Destin West because of the amenities like the lazy river area, large gulfside pool, and access to the Ramada next door - also its close proximity to the Okaloosa Fishing Pier. It came down to a penthouse with a rooftop deck and grill on the bay side and this unit on the gulf side. We are so glad we chose this one! The unit was spotless and just as advertised. My wife and I stayed in the large master bedroom, our two 21yr old girls stayed in the bunk room (with their own bathroom), and our 13yr old son slept on the pull out sofa. It worked out great. We had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was terrific. We were right above the pool so we could see the kids while swimming and hanging in the giant hot tub. The view of the ocean was awesome as well. The unit is right by the steps and elevator to the pool, the trash chute, and parking garage (so loading and unloading was very easy). The grocery store was maybe a mile away right across the Ft. Walton bridge, and a Tom Thumb store was right across the street for ice and beer, nice! We spent a fair amount of time at the pier fishing and hanging out at the beachside restaurants. In fact when we first arrived early Saturday morning we had breakfast at Angler's on the pier and saw 2 sea turtles just cruising around right off the beach. We caught plenty of fish there as well. One evening we caught 2 dozen Hardtails in less than 2 hours - my son was digging that! We also really liked the tiki bar on the beach at the Ramada. Pretty cool to walk off the beach for a frozen drink and watch one of the USA World Cup soccer matches. But I think the absolute coolest thing was one afternoon while sitting on the beach in our dedicated chairs (the free beach service that is included in the rental) a pod of dolphins swam by. So I swam out maybe 100yds and for a few minutes had 2 adult and 1 baby dolphins swimming circles around me! How cool is that? Thanks for setting that up for me Lee Ann...:) Looks like I'm running out of room so I guess I can't tell you about all the restaurants we really liked, but check out Bochamps Seafood & Oyster Bar on a Thursday night for the fireworks!!! Thanks so much Lee Ann. We will most certainly be back !!!"

  • We loved our stay here!

    "This condo suited our needs perfectly. The owner and the management company were super responsive, and everyone we dealt with was so pleasant. The view is amazing, and several days my daughter and I had the small pool to ourselves. The balcony is huge, and did I mention the view? And I've never seen such a crazy master bath with three sinks! You can walk over to the beach in about 2 or 3 minutes. Our dog loved it too!"

  • Gorgeous location

    "This is a very hard review to write - there were so many good points to this house, but several areas need some attention. I would have to suggest to the resort managers that they consider taking a couple weeks and doing some maintenance. I guess I'll do the bad first because I want the good points to be most memorable. Okay, here we go (had to shorten b/c character limit) The elevator did not work for the first 4 days. We finally flagged down a truck that was next door from the rental agency and he came over and fixed it (one interior door was not completely shut). We called property manager and they sent someone but he couldn't fix it and just left. We requested chairs for the balcony, never got them. The waterfall in the pool does not work. The lights/sound in the hot tub do not work. Broken lounge chair at the pool, and the bottom of the pool was all chipped with huge spots of missing paint. The tile around the top edge of the pool is coated in scum and needs a thorough cleaning. Bugs floated out of the pool filter, which we explained to the pool boy. He said he would turn the filter power up, but bugs continued to float back out of the filter so we spent a LOT of time cleaning the pool. There was a septic smell that drifted around the pool area occasionally that was really unpleasant. There is an outdoor sink/fish cleaning station next to the shower near the pool. There is a wasp nest under the sink. The palmetto bug problem is the worst we've experienced in Florida, although I'm not sure if anything can be done about that, but I had to mention it because we rented a house last year and seen one of these bugs the entire week. On a normal night here we would come out on the balcony and see at least 20, and found several in the house. The can opener was missing from the kitchen. We constantly ran out of ice, so maybe a larger ice maker would be useful. We requested an outdoor table of some sort because we like eating near the pool on family vacations, never got one. Mattresses need replacement, they were very hard. The good - very close to beach, beautiful view, beautiful landscape, great house layout, huge balconies, the stars at night are incredible, loved the game cabinet and the kitchen, and the shell collection at the entrance and on the shelf above the stairs, guard at entrance to community, the Beach(!) is perfection. Fortunately for us, the good far outweighed the bad and I would stay here again. Maintenance is all that is needed."

Florida Main North West Travel Tips

Northwest Florida, aka the Florida Panhandle, is known for its stellar white sand beaches and glowing blue-green waters. The beaches of northwest Florida provide the area's most popular attractions for visitors. Surrounding the surf and sand are a variety of parks, restaurants and shops. Within this region is the Emerald Coast that runs from Pensacola to Port St. Joe, and the Forgotten Coast that runs from Mexico Beach to St. Marks.

Things to Do in Northwest Florida

National Museum of Naval Aviation: Anyone interested in space travel is sure to enjoy the rich history found here. With more than 140 restored aircraft from the Navy, Coast Guard Aviation and Marine Corps, this space offers plenty to explore. Watch a live Blue Angels flight demonstration, experience flight and motion-based simulators and learn about the interior of a cockpit.

Gulf World Marine Park: Tons of family fun can be had at Gulf World Marine Park. With the park's dolphin, scuba, sea lion and tropical bird shows, visitors can see these local animals up close and personal performing entertaining and amazing tricks and feats. As you stroll though, don’t miss Tropical Gardens, where you can pet a live string ray and visit the exhibits of otters, iguanas, alligators and penguins.

Panhandle Butterfly House: Along U.S. Highway 98 you’ll find the Navarre Visitor Center, and at the foot of the beach bridge is an interactive butterfly garden that’s home to migrating butterflies and a nursery housing local butterfly species. The facility is operated by volunteers, and visitors can take a class to learn about butterfly gardening, ecosystem management and habitat conservation. Step inside and witness dozens of types of butterflies flying around. These colorful, winged creations are certainly a sight to see.

Mission San Luis: This exciting northwestern Florida attraction is a popular living history park. More than 60 acres rest on a quiet oasis away from city living. As you walk through the park you’ll feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Examine the exhibit gallery and museum in the visitor center, which houses artifacts both excavated and from private collections. The theater produces live entertainment and a classroom offers workshops and special events. If you visit on Sunday, take an Archeology Tour to learn how the site’s been excavated and how artifacts are preserved.

Panhandle Opry: To get a taste of some good ol’ fashioned country western music, check out the Panhandle Opry on the first and third Saturday of each month. A collection of musical artists gets together to put on a traditional show for visitors who love the genre.

Pensacola Museum of Art: Situated in Pensacola’s historic Old City Jail Building, this public institution encourages creativity in visual arts with 18 annual exhibitions, workshops, lectures and films.

Best Beaches of Northwest Florida

Santa Rosa Beach: Santa Rosa Beach was founded in 1910 and was the start of South Walton as its known today. Surrounding this sandy area are luxurious beach houses, a unique artist colony and plenty of upscale dining. Follow up a day of sun and surf with an elegant evening out, complete with fine dining and plenty of culture.

Pensacola Beach: Famously known for pearly white sand and stunningly green waters, Pensacola Beach is certainly one to put on the must-see list. There are endless opportunities for both fun and relaxation here. Stroll down Pensacola Beach Pier or set up your rod for a morning of fishing. Stake your claim on the beach itself for some quality time with loved ones in the sun before grabbing a lunch of fresh seafood at a nearby eatery.

Topsail Hill State Preserve: At Topsail Hill you’ll find amazing natural features, including 3.2 miles of secluded sandy beaches and dunes rising more than 25 feet tall. The state preserve offers and excellent location for an afternoon of fishing off the shore or hiking through the trees while on the lookout for local birds. Of course, there’s the beach itself, where you can soak up some rays, build an epic sand castle or have a swimming race.
