About The Owner

After 30+ years of wonderful, family vacations on Okaloosa Island, we have finally purchased this fantastic gulfside condo. Now we are excited about sharing family memories with our grandchildren at this fun-filled community. We invite you and your family and friends to come to Destin West Gulfside Unit 408 and make your own special memories.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Fort Walton Beach

We discovered the beautiful beaches in Fort Walton Beach and Destin in 1970's. Since discovering the suger white sand and crystal clear waters of the Gulf we've never visited the Atlantic again. We also love boating and fishing. Destin's harbour is absolutely gorgeous with magnificent yachts, charter fishing fleet, sight seeing boats, pirate sail boats and exciting night life. Destin and Ft. Walton also have upscale and discount shopping, golf, tennis and numerous restaurants offering everything from Jimmy Buffett casual to fine dining. It's paradise!

What makes this condo unique

We purchased a condo at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort because of all the amenities. Families on vacation desire something for everyone to do. In addition to the beach there are six pools including a Lazy River, a zero entry pool and a waterfall. There's a beach front fitness center with state of the art equipment. Within an easy stroll is the Boardwalk with numerous restaurants. Within four miles is Destin's vibrant harbour with loads of activities. Fun abounds!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for an awesome vacation! Your condo is wonderful - the best we've experienced on all of our trips to Destin and there have been many over the years! We will definitely be back next year! The view is spectacular - the pools and lazy river were such fun and the weather was PERFECT! We are leaving today and are sad but have fun memories to take back to Tennessee!

We loved the atmosphere but the floors were filthy and the master bed with the foam mattress was awkward

Beautiful Condo! Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo provided our family with the perfect vacation getaway! It is beautifully decorated. The pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen is very well stocked with various kitchen utensils and appliances, including a nice blender, a Keurig, a regular coffee pot, lots of pots and pans, a strainer, and several cooking spoons, spatulas, ladles, etc. This is the first time that we have rented a condo and not had to go out and purchase some needed utensil for cooking, because everything that we needed was there for our use and more. The beds were comfortable, including the pull out sofa, which had the thickest mattress that I've ever seen on a couch bed. The bed in the master suite was especially comfortable. Beach chairs and toys were there for our use, which was a great added bonus to our stay. The high ceilings and large rooms made it very spacious for our large family. The garden tub in the master suite provided the perfect spot for some end of the day relaxation, with it's deep interior, slanted back, and large exterior surface to set things like a glass of wine, a book, or towels. Also, there are many strategically placed hooks in the master bathroom for wet suits and towels and also there is a rack in the closet that can be set up on the balcony for wet bathing suits and towels. Paul, the owner, is very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions that we had before the booking and then before the trip. If we vacation in Destin/Fort Walton Beach, Gulfside room 408 will definitely be where we stay again.

Lots to do without leaving the grounds!

  • 5 of 5

Access to three heated pools made the chilly trip we took much more bearable. A very user friendly property. Wish there was a channel guide in the room, but we took a picture of the one from the fitness room. The room was very well appointed, plenty of restaurants nearby. a short drive to Destin.

Perfect Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our two young kids and their grandparents. The condo was perfect for our family with its amazing beach views, great amenities, and closeness to so many fun things to do and great places to eat. Our boys loved the lazy river and splash park! And the bunk room with the door was exactly what we needed for the kids. The owner was very responsive and helpful. We are already looking forward to staying here again next summer!
