About the property

*FREE BEACH SERVICE INCLUDED*

DITCH THE SHOES! (FLOPS ARE OPTIONAL ;) STEPS FROM THE BEACH, OUR CHARMING, BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED 2BR PLUS BUNKROOM 2BA CONDO GIVES NEW MEANING TO THE WORD “BAREFOOTIN'.” 

Grab popsicles and cold drinks for the family. By the time you make the short stroll to your little slice of paradise in the sand, they'll still be chillin.

Welcome to Gulfside 308 is your home away from home at the luxurious Destin West Beach & Bay Resort. Besides its incredible oceanfront location -- practically a stone's throw from the sugar white sand of the gorgeous Gulf shoreline -- this third-floor unit with its wraparound balcony and stunning views of the aqua blue waters of both the sea and pool is just what the doctor ordered for truly unwinding. Aquatherapy just doesn't get any better than this. Gulfside 308 is a jewel among condos at Destin West … so perfect for hangin' at the beach with (or without?) the kids, counting waves, building sandcastles, people watching, snacking or just lazing around for a change. Hey … it's vacation, after all!

SOUND LIKE HEAVEN? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! =)

Not that kicking back is the ONLY thing to do at Destin West. If you haven't been here before, TRUST us when we say that the amenities on both bay and Gulf sides are incomparable. (And that's not counting the local area attractions we've listed below.) Destin West is a veritable oasis of pools, palm trees, Jacuzzis and, the Piece de resistance … a continually flowing, 700 foot-long tuber's dream called the “Lazy River” located just across the sky bridge. It's just that, at Destin West Gulfside 308 -- and we know this may come as a shock -- YOU get to decide whether to spend the day with your feet in the sand … or surf. Stretched out in a beach chair … or floating, in a donut-shaped pillow, around the 700ft lazy river. Taking a short walk to a restaurant for a bite to eat … or cruisin' on back to your condo to grab a sandwich and head back out to the beach. Lazing around, or going snorkeling … the choice is always up to you. How cool is that?

INDOORS IS LAID BACK, TOO. WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO CHILLAX … ALL WRAPPED UP IN A COLORFUL, CHEERFUL, BEAUTIFUL SPACE TO CALL “HOME.”

Leave your shoes -- and your cares -- at the door and step inside your roomy, three-bedroom, two-bath condo with its amazing views of the sugar white beach, turquoise waves, and the spectacular pool, and you'll immediately know you're home. Tastefully appointed in comfortable and stylish furnishings, the coastal hues pay homage to what's outside, Gulfside 308 is your perfect family getaway. The master suite, which has its own private door to the wraparound deck, houses a beachy-chic, king-sized bed all decked out in premium linens and with a new Sealy Pillowtop mattress for that all important great night's sleep. 

Getting ready for dinner out is a breeze in the adjoining master bath with double vanities, separate shower and a sumptuous garden tub. The tastefully appointed guestroom with adjoining second bath and king bed also sports premium linens and mattress, in keeping with the theme of comfort. Tucked away from the adult space, the colorful kids' bunkroom is ideal for coaxing weary sandcastle architects to sweet, blissful sleep. And, of course, each room has its own flat screen TV to meet a variety of entertainment preferences, from cartoons to sports to HGTV and beyond.  

The living room offers a queen sleeper sofa (the condo sleeps up to eight guests), DVD player and a large HDTV for family movie night. Free wireless internet lets you post your vaycay photos for all your friends and family to envy. A fully equipped kitchen (should you actually feel inclined to cook) features a side-by side refrigerator equipped with water and ice, dishwasher, oven with smooth-top range and a built-in microwave (for microwave popcorn … and meals … yes, vacation is all about ease). A coffee maker, toaster and blender round out our well-appointed kitchen, so you can enjoy your morning smoothies with coffee and a bagel. We didn't forget the washer and dryer, either. Hey, it's less to pack … just bring your swimsuits and flip flops. We also stashed beach chairs and an umbrella in a rolling cart for easy transfer to the beach. 

COME FOR THE LAZY RIVER. COME FOR THE PRISTINE BEACH. COME FOR THE AWESOME MEMORIES. WHATEVER THE REASON … YOU'LL BE BACK.

The resort's list of amenities is almost embarrassing, they're so luxurious. With offerings like a 5,000 square-foot swimming pool, kid-friendly zero-entry (aka beach) pool, two giant Jacuzzis, winter-heated waterfall pool, and the region's largest lazy river, you'll have to be very intentional to have anything less than a perfect day. The resort's private footbridge makes for safe, easy transit between the pristine, white-sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico's Choctawhatchee Bay, and the bay side with its Lazy River and unparalleled amenities. Rent boogie boards, sea kayaks, or jet skis; sign the kids up for resort activities; and sweat off Florida's epicurean delights in the state-of-the-art fitness center. 

As if that weren't enough, Destin West is walking distance to a slew of activities the likes of which you won't find anywhere else. The Boardwalk and fishing pier, Fudpuckers, The Gulfarium, and The Ramada Palaza are all a short walk from the Resort. As a guest with us, you always have full access to all of the amenities at the Ramada Plaza Resort, including the famous Grotto Pool with swim-up bar. Or, if you prefer to go exploring, Okaloosa Island offers miles of Gulf and Bay beaches that are perfect for outdoor adventures.

Yes, without a doubt, Destin West Resort is one of the most family-friendly, well serviced, and upscale locales on the island. Ready to book it now? Weeks fill up quickly … consider yourself forewarned. ;)

Beautifully decorated, clean & comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 fit comfortably in this beautifully decorated condo. I loved how clean everything was and the appliances were brand new. The condo had everything we needed and was very much like home. We loved being on the 3rd floor because we had same floor access to parking and the skywalk to the lazy river. Our kids loved to hang out in the evenings in the pool and lazy river. Also, the view from the deck was great and we had breakfast and coffee looking out at the gulf. We all slept soundly as we found the beds to be very comfortable. I'm pretty picky as I don't typically sleep well but I did here, I told my husband it was like sleeping on a cloud. We rented a pontoon boat from someone recommended by the owner and had a great time snorkeling in the bay. We will be back next year!!

Owner's Response: Hi Bob. Thank you so much for your 5 star review. We are thrilled your family enjoyed their stay. This condo has such a great location and is literally steps away from the lazy river. We are so happy you were comfortable and enjoyed the new appliances and the "cloud" beds. We would love to host your sweet family again soon. From our family to yours. ~ David and Lisa

We absolutely loved it!! We will be staying here every year during October and November.

  • 5 of 5

The only thing I could say is that the bed in the master bedroom is very lumpy and definitely needs a new mattress other then that it was fantastic and so pretty and has everything you need just like home. The floors are beautiful and tastefully decorated!! We all loved it and hated to have to leave.

Owner's Response: Hi Tim! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your vacation and loved the condo. Late October and Early November are some of my favorite times to visit the area as well... no crowds and great weather. The Master Bedroom Set and Serta Mattress were purchased in May of 2017 when we remodeled... I'll have the mattress checked and also verify the bed frame is intact. Ensuring a comfortable night's sleep is important to us! We look forward to seeing you back in 2018. =)
