About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 1 Bunk area, Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)



Come visit this incredible condominium at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort on Okaloosa Island which is directly ON the gulf. Our beautiful 4th Floor condo has the BEST view at Destin West! Our wrap-around porch gives you a 180 degree of spectacular views facing breathtaking sunrises. You cannot beat our condo at this wonderful family-friendly resort. We welcome you at our home. You won’t regret vacationing at this wonderful place.

Our condo is a truly unique ocean front vacation condominium with a wrap around balcony and full views to the East for those who enjoy morning coffee and watch the sunrise. Later in the evening, enjoy sunsets from the front of the balcony as it faces toward the South/Southwest. The sands of the emerald coast are directly below your Destin West vacation home on the Gulf. Again, there are only 10 condos directly on the ocean at Destin West with unobstructed views.

Our home rivals the most appointed condos at Destin West with designer touches throughout this elegant vacation home. Lively, radiant colors, crown molding, and other stylish touches grace the unit. Every piece at our Destin West Home away from home has a purpose and reflects the care taken to outfit this beautiful condo. Keen attention has been taken to harmonize every color, furnishing, and all accessories to make this unit a beautiful and relaxing environment for you to experience. Relax in the oversize couch, while recessed lights set the mood for the evening or lie back on our comfortable bed in the master and listen to the wave’s crash.

Because we want our guests to be comfortable, we ensure its furnishings are kept in excellent condition and respond to our guest’s reviews. In 2016 alone, we’ve had a custom tile shower installed and gave the master bedroom a lot of attention. There, the king size bed now sports a comfortable new pillow top mattress with new linens, the area rug was replaced, and the television was updated. The condo is continually upgraded and cared for meticulously with one goal in mind — your comfort at all times! This condo is in high demand from repeat guests that know exactly what to expect with features that include: crown molding, bead board walls, incredible art, tile floors throughout, butcher block and designer granite countertops in kitchen, and big screen flat panel HDTVs with HBO for movie lovers. Come see for yourself! We strive to make this condo the best at Destin West!

Think of our condo as your 'home away from home'. Walk out to your balcony and the only thing you can see is the tranquil gulf for miles. On the gulf, it is not unusual to see dolphins swimming just a few hundred yards from you. And of course our condo balcony could not be any closer to the ocean with 180 degree views of the Gulf. So you are sure to catch some spectacular sights. We also provide COMPLIMENTARY BEACH SERVICE--A $175 VALUE which is a fee set-up of 2 canvas beach chairs and 1 umbrella! No need to drag your chairs and umbrellas to the beach.

But not only is our condo and the beach wonderful, but we have the most amazing amenities here at Destin West. Your kids will have so much to do you will never have to leave. The 700 ft. floating lazy river on the bayside is truly unique to Destin West Beach & Bay Resort. There is a zero entry pool that leads to the lazy river where even the smallest of children can frolic and play. Surrounding the lazy river are 2 large spas placed amid the tropical palms, as well as a waterfall pool (heated in the winter).

Directly on the beachside and just steps from our condo once exiting the elevator is the 5,000 sq ft pool. This pool is the largest on the Florida Panhandle. There is a kiddy pool and a hot tub on the beachside as well. Additionally, there is a smaller, quainter Villa pool by the front entrance. This is also heated seasonally and is outside.

And, if all of this is not enough, the kids also have a splash park to entertain themselves. This is located directly on the beach and next to the beachside pool. A splash park is just that, a park that shoots, squirts, and spills water out of fun crabs, towers, contraptions, and more. And we haven't even gotten to the beach yet. Once you arrive at the beach, you will find the friendly attendants ready to seat you in your complimentary full size umbrella and 2 beach chairs. This is a $175 SAVINGS FOR YOU!!

Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

The views from #401 wrap around balcony can't be Beat! You can watch the sunrise and the sunset along with watching the dolphins in the morning from this condo. When it was too cool for the beach, the balcony was the place to be. We were very happy with all the accommodations and the proximity to restaurants and shopping. Very clean, bright and beachy decor. Shelley was the greatest to work with. She was very quick to respond to any inquiries that we had.

Sincerely, Shelley

Nice Condo.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and can't wait to come back with the kids. Only complaint was Master bedroom ceiling fan was loud. We like using the fans to help cool the condo. The condo was clean and well stocked with what we needed. Best trip yet.

Owner's Response: Hey Jason! I am so glad you and the kids enjoyed the condo and will be back! I am also pleased that you found our condo to be clean and well-stocked. I will definitely have the fan looked at and fixed. I am so sorry, I was unaware that it was loud. Maybe a screw needs to be tightened. Please let me know if you have any concerns during your stay next time and I will take care of it immediately for you!! :) We want to make everything perfect as possible for our guests. Thanks again for being a great guest and I look forward to having you again! Sincerely, Shelley

Not up to same level as previous stay

  • 3 of 5

Condo was not clean upon arrival, had to get cleaning crew to come back out to mop and vacuum floors. The patio door lock was broken the entire time we were there and the smoke detector started malfunctioning as well. Oven takes about an hour to preheat to 425 degrees and doesn't cook at normal direction times; therefore, have to cook longer and keep an eye on what you are cooking! Allegedly there's a $100 discount for repeat customers, but that was not the case. Love the location and amenities of the property but may need to find a different condo to stay in next year!

Owner's Response: Hi Matt, I am so sorry. I was unaware of many of the things you left in our review. If I had known, I could have taken care of everything you listed. We try our best to make our guests stay as perfect as we can. Let me clarify, the entire condo was clean upon your arrival. I received an email from you the next morning noting that sand was in a bathroom and the bottoms of your feet were dirty. I sent a crew member over to re-clean your floors that day and apologized. I texted and asked if you noticed a difference in the floors and you replied “Oh yeah!” You later emailed that you found the lock to the sliding door broken and behind our tv, and that “you were just letting me know”. That translated to me you were not worried about it ; however, I immediately ordered a new handle/lock. We had to wait for it to ship and unfortunately it came after you departed. It has since been installed. The last 3 issues you never notified me of and I’m not exactly sure why? We keep extra batteries in the condo for smoke detectors in case they beep due to batteries dying. I could have easily remedied this for you. I did not know that our oven was taking so long to heat. I will have that checked now that I know there is a problem. Lastly, I do give return guest discounts. You submitted a “Book Now” through VRBO without a message. I have 24 hours to “accept” or “decline” and accepted the booking which automatically fills in the total rental amount. I failed to remember that you were one of my return guests. I have many inquiries and requests with more than one condo. It is easy for me to forget unless I am reminded. I am sorry that you didn’t know to call or email me back as I could have easily adjusted your quote. You had a great time last year at this very condo with no complaints and I immediately took care of 2 issues you made me aware of this year. We try to catch everything in the condo, but if we don't, we try to remedy the issues as quickly as possible. I hope you will reconsider giving us another chance. All our best, Shelley

Destin West Beach Resort, 401

  • 5 of 5

401 is a great condo. This is our second time we have visited and absolutely love it. It is the perfect size for the 4 of us (we are a family of 4 with 2 young adult children). The kitchen is stocked with everything we need and having the washing machine in the condo is essential. The condo is always clean, well maintained and we love the colors, very relaxing and beachy. The location is perfect as well. We love looking out at the ocean, great views from both the bedroom and living room, along with the wrap-around deck; and since the condo is on the corner it is very quiet. Having the beach umbrella and 2 chairs come with the condo is a great perk as well. Love the beach! We were able to watch the fireworks right from our deck.

We would choose to come back again in the future. Absolutely loved our vacation this year! Thanks so much for such a great place. Shelly does such a great job, everything is always perfect. We would recommend this condo to all our friends.

Right on the beach and gulf!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location! We had a less than 5 minute walk from the condo to the beach (including the elevator ride). Great location for Boardwalk restaurants (5 minute walk) and Wednesday night fireworks from the pier (then Destin was Thursday night and could still be seen from the beach while ghost crabbing ).

Only complaint, not Shelley's problem, but the association they pay for and/or the county beach authority does not check the private beach for loiterers who leave their pop up tents, chairs and toys all week long. I've never seen this before, and been to tons of beaches. We had a horrible morning storm that blew two tents into the protected dunes area. The people took the broken structures out (I mean pieces of metal hanging and the tents couldn't even stand straight) and they repositioned them for the week. Wish the owners told the association they pay for that this is unacceptable and an eye sore for not only their rental property but also our vacation. We paid enough for a great view, not a landfill. Hopefully this could be remedied because I would totally rent again.
