About the property

Efficiency Studio condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


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.

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

Wonderful Condo for 2!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our vacation. This is the first time we have stayed in a Villa at Destin West and we loved it! It was perfect for 2. We did meet up with some friends for dinner and they stopped by, it seemed a little crowded then but for a couple or 2 adults and no more than 2 kids it was perfect. Having the washer and dryer was awesome and so convenient. We also LOVED the beach service and it definitely spoiled us!

Owner's Response: Hi Ashley, Our condo is perfect for a small family, as you said. And we do love spoiling our guests with amenities that not all condos provide: the free beach service which begins in March and ends in October and our stackable washer and dryer that is a nice addition to our kitchenette area. Please do come back and enjoy a stay this coming Spring or Summer '17. We offer a return guest discount to all our previous guests. Thanks for your review! Sherry

Owner's Response: Great that you should mention that the washer and dryer is a plus. We are one of a few villas that have a stackable washer and dryer. So glad you said the villa was 'absolutely wonder.' Sherry
