Great condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Destin West. The condo was actually better than advertised. (I recommend new pictures). Shelley and her team were a joy to deal with. Unfortunately there were a couple downsides, but none of them are the condo. The only issue I had with the property is one rule at the pool. No drinks in the pool. I understand no glass, of course, but if I can't go around the lazy river with a beer in my hand, it's not quite "lazy" enough for me.

It really is quite a hike to the beach. If you're expecting clear blue water, this is not the place. The beach Is next to a fishing pier so you have dead fish and chum coming on the beach constantly. If you're coming to fish or you don't mind walking 2 or 3 miles down the beach away from the pier, this is your spot.

Owner's Response: Hey Jeremy, I am glad you enjoyed the condo itself! And yes, we added new vinyl flooring to the guest bedrooms. I need to update those pictures. I think it looks beautiful! Whereas it would be nice to have a drink in the pool, it's not our resort's fault. It is a Florida State Law: NO GLASS IS PERMITTED ON THE POOL DECK AND NO FOOD OR DRINK IS PERMITTED WITHIN 4 FEET OF THE POOL’S EDGE. (FLORIDA STATUTE 64E.9.004(4)). As far as the Gulf of Mexico this year, I honestly don't think the fish are from the pier. It could be, but there is a certain time when the gulf has a low oxygen level and it causes dead fish all along the gulf coast. I am from this area and it happens every summer for a short time. But it's usually not a lot of fish. The past few weeks the water has not been very clear. Sometimes the tides bring in June grass. Maybe next time come in May, early June, or October. Those are some of my favorite months and the water can get extremely clear. I hope you will come again and maybe try one of our gulfside condos instead on a different month. Thanks for choosing our condo and I hope you will return! Thanks, Shelley

The unit was very nicely furnished with everything we needed for our stay. We loved the privacy of this unit also. We would definitely rent from Shelley and BIll again. Thanks for a great week!

We had a great stay in the condo - the lazy river was our favorite! We also loved watching the dolphins in the bay in the morning while we ate breakfast!

Heron L-02 is a great condo. Having stayed at Destin West many times this is the best unit we have ever stayed in. The view is amazing. Condo is very spacious. The beds are very comfortable. This is the perfect location. You can park and never have to get back in your car with all the amenities on site and next door. We will definitely stay again.

Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this place was awesome. First time in Destin. Location was fantastic, condo more spacious than we realized...nice layout. Pools were heated (thankfully...not a super warm week for spring break). Beaches were phenomenal. Easy walk over to the beach. Nice facilities. Very calm and serene at our condo...nice to have the hot tub. Rented a boat from Fudpuckers...just a quick walk next door. We also got food here a couple of times. Very convenient and pretty good casual place.
