About the property

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!!

And we have more condos!

Condo was great, beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We REALLY enjoyed our stay. The condo was freshly painted, clean,

new and comfortable couch, comfortable bed and it was very well

furnished, especially the kitchen. Only recommendation would be a

wall clock over the tv and hopefully they will get a new tv provider

(and maybe a recliner). The manager was wonderful and we will

definitely return.

Owner's Response: Hey Jerry! It's always a pleasure to have you and your wife in the winter. I am so glad you enjoyed everything. Thanks so much for the suggestions. I know the cable switch has been made to a better provider. So hopefully this one is much better. I apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for the other suggestions and we look forward to having you again! Sincerely, Shelley

Condo was excellent! Beach/ocean was a bummer

  • 4 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about this condo itself! It was very clean, nicely equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and the pools were awesome! So many options for swimming, it was great. Our kids loved the bunk area, the balcony was very nicely furnished so we got to enjoy it, and there was a great fireworks show off the pier on Wednesday night. The Boardwalk was within walking distance and offered several options of restaurants. If you plan to exercise on your trip, the fitness room is fantastic too!

The condo itself would be a 5/5 in my mind, and Shelley was very responsive and wonderful to work with!

I am sure it was just a fluke or the time of year, but we were disappointed about the large amounts sea grass that kept the water from being the clear, emerald color we had heard so much about from others. It was all over us and our suits after swimming unfortunately. There were also a lot of slug like creatures that washed up early in the week and made the shoreline like a land mine. If you stepped on one it squirted purple gunk.

In spite of that, we enjoyed our trip and would certainly go back to this condo, we just might try a different week in the summer. Thanks for everything SFV!

Owner's Response: Hey Amy! Thank you so much for choosing our condo for your vacation. I am so glad that the condo, resort, and amenities met your expectations and that you had a 5/5 star review for that portion of your vacation. Ah yes, mother nature. I hate that for our guests. It is a bummer to not experience the clear emerald waters on the gulf coast. The sea slugs are called sea hares. They do emit a purple ink when threatened by predators. They are harmless, but not ideal when swimming (yuck). It is due to the weather in the Gulf of Mexico. I am from the FL Panhandle and have only been introduced to them recently. There are different seasons of seaweed, jellyfish, june grass, etc.... But if you do come again, my favorite months are April/May when the weather is warmer and the crowds are low. The water is often clear. I also like June b/c it's not quite as blazing hot as July and August. You "can" experience June grass, but you already experienced that in August :( Again, depends on the weather/tides, etc... October is another favorite month of mine. The Gulf water is still warm, usually clear, and the weather is amazing. We usually have a cold spell mid to late October. I hope that helps you plan for next year's vacation in our area! Thanks again for coming. We will see you soon. Shelley :)

Very relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The unit was great. It is very convenient to the beach and all attractions. It was clean and very comfortable. We spent 10 days there and were able to completely relax. I sat on the deck and watch all the happenins on the beach while my wife and two daughters (19, 23) tanned on the beach. Everything was smooth and we would return in the future.
