......ASK ME ABOUT OUR NIGHTLY RATES......

Brand New Mattress (May 2017)

Our Destin West studio condo has a first class view of both the beach and bay. Facing Destin, you can view 4 miles of undeveloped beach and see the beautiful skyline of Destin. What a view for the breathtaking sunrises. Okaloosa Island is a very family friendly vacation spot, which connects Destin to Fort Walton Beach.

Our soothing, colorful condo has a beachy and light cottage feel, with a touch of sophistication. You will smile with our cheerful colors that blend in with the aqua waters of the sea. Our efficiency studio condo is great for a getaway or a wonderful vacation for 4 here at Destin West, where you have access to amenities on both the beach side and the bayside.

The unit is located on the beach side, where you also have a private pool (heated during Winter) beneath the Villas. Be sure to watch the sun go down by the fishing pier and then walk to a beachside restaurant right out your door. Head to Howl at the Moon Comedy and Piano bar as you pass along different shops at the boardwalk. The Gulfarium is also within walking distance.

Our unit has a queen size bed and a queen sleeper sofa in an open floor plan (no door to the bedroom but wall separating the queen bed from the living room). There is a Flat Screen TV, DVD in the living area and in the master bedroom area. The bathroom has a big, relaxing deep set tub for a nice evening of soaking and relaxing. The bathroom also has a separate stand up shower. Except for the penthouse units, Villa 506 is one of only two condos with a 'small capacity all-in-one washer/dryer'. A big plus for stays over 3 nights!

There are MANY pools to choose from at Destin West. The bayside offers a 700 ft. lazy river, a heated pool with a waterfall flowing into it, and 2 large hot tubs in the center of the bayside complex. There is also a gradual decline pool that feeds into the Lazy River. Parents love the safety of their toddlers playing in the water.

The beachside complex offers a 5000 sq. ft. pool, a splash garden for the kids, a kiddy pool, and a large hot tub.

A SKYWALK or bridge connecting the beachside complex to the bayside complex makes using all of the amenities at Destin West a breeze! The beachside also has a state of the art FITNESS GYM right on the beach.

CHARCOAL GRILLS and PICNIC TABLES on both the bayside and beachside make grilling out inviting and fun. Or throw FRISBEE/FOOTBALL on the grassy areas by the grills on the bayside.

Please call or email me for more pictures of Destin West amenities and our villa.

Wonderful setting and good value.

  • 4 of 5

It starts with parking garage access only steps away from the front door. (So no matter the weather, you're protected.) Easy access to both the beach and the facilities across the highway (Lazy River, etc.) and the layout inside the studio rental was great. Sure the cooking/food prep area was small, but that came as no surprise because of the very complete and helpful information provided beforehand. The balcony was larger than expected and perfect for watching the sun rise or relaxing in the evening The only downside for us was the mattress that is in real need of replacement. (Not a matter of firm vs. soft, but sunken and worn out areas.) We managed to flip it around and make it workable. We would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Hey Ken, Thank you for this very detailed review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We greatly appreciate your feedback on the mattress. The owner has since replaced the mattress with a brand new one. We hope you will be back soon to stay with us again! Thanks, Bill

Loved my 6 weeks at this Villa!

  • 5 of 5

I had such a wonderful time staying at this 5th floor Villa with the awesome view out the slider door! This condo is close to the parking garage. I was able to enjoy all the heated pools and hot tubs. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance. Best of all, were the modern furnishings plus the condo was fully equipped and clean. The management made sure I was comfortable and answered all my inquires almost immediately.

Cute villa, responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beach service, comfortable bed, convenient washing machine, large bathroom with tub and shower, great view from balcony, convenient parking. Only downsides were no oven and dryer took a long time. The owners responded promptly and very kindly when we had a minor issue. Great owners, great unit.

Owner's Response: Hi Jessica, Our location, as you mentioned, is central to everything, including the parking garage. That is especially nice when unloading gear or children or groceries. We're glad you enjoyed the condo itself! Please come again, Sherry

not as described

  • 3 of 5

The property is listed as a one bedroom. There is no door or privacy to the "bedroom". It is a galley sized unit and there is a clear walk way from the front door pat the Bed Area - not bedroom. I believe this should be clearly started in the description as use of the word bedroom indicates a separate area generally with some provacy and a door - not an alcove with three walls and an open space with a bed.

Owner's Response: Hi Claire, We are happy to have had you as our guest and we feel we offer so much to make your stay wonderful..a charming efficiency apartment with a stackable washer/dryer unit which not many villas supply, a free beach service, a central location that is easy to access both the beach and bay. When reading the property description, the 3rd paragraph states: Our unit has a queen size bed and a queen sleeper sofa in an open floor plan (no door to the bedroom but wall separating the queen bed from the living room). We regret that you didn't read this. It would have helped you in deciding that this unit didn't meet your needs. We also regret that your review showed 3 stars when so many reviews were 5 stars. Thanks for your reminding us to read the property descriptions before booking. Sherry
