Nice Unit

  • 3 of 5

This condo is very nice at a great complex! Located on the lazy river side (Bayside), very close to the elevator. Condo is tastefully decorated and has all the kitchen utensils you might need. The master king bed was EXTREMELY comfortable! Our 2 grandkids loved the bunk beds. The beach looked good, however, we didn't use the amenities as it was very crowded. A complaint was the check-in. We arrived at 3 pm and the unit wasn't ready. After they clean the units, they have to be 'inspected.' I appreciate that, but when they said our unit was ready, it was NOT. Had to wait for it to be cleaned and of course inspected. We took all our things upstairs and waited outside the unit for nearly an hour. Other families were checking in, but were didn't get into the unit until 5:30 pm! It's almost appeared that our unit was the last to be cleaned that day. What a days $$$ nearly wasted... Also, all though this unit has a good view, it's rather noisy being right above folks entering the pool area (slamming of the gates). We stayed in the Sandpiper building on the 5th floor the year before (through a private owner) and it was so much more quieter. PS - Sorry, Mr. Hayes, but I would rather rent from a private owner (which in the beginning I thought I was) than having to rent through Destin West because of the disappointing check-in experience. And that is why the '3' stars.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you had that check in experience. Of the 7+ years my wife and I have owned this condo I have never heard of this happening. I have immediately contacted the resort manager and requested he investigate and reply to me with his corrective/preventive actions. As for the ownership, it is privately owned, I just use Destin West as the point of contact since we live out of state. I find that most people prefer to check in on-site and have the ability to call downstairs if there is anything they need. Thank you for your honest feedback!

Coming back every year!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was extremely nice, clean and located in the perfect place. It had plenty of room for a whole family or a group of 6-8. The rooms were huge and the bathrooms were really nice. It looks over the lazy river/pools that are really pretty when lit up at night. The pools are great for families or adults. The beach is just a short walk across the sky bridge. We got 3 kids and a wagon full of toys to the beach every day in 5-10 minutes. I would strongly recommend this condo to anyone that is looking for a get-a-way vacation that is away from the big crowd, but close enough to the action to get in it when wanted.

Very comfortable wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

Wow when we arrived we came Into condo and realized we picked right, with so many different condos to choose from you never know. The condo was clean and spacious, all the kitchen gadgets we could ask for. Great to have washing machine and dryer in unit, no issues with overflowing knowing not to overload.

If we had issues we were able to get them resolved immediately , either thru the owners Robert and Karen or the front desk . The view to the pool area was great, as well we could see the Bay Area from the front and the gulfside from the back.

We had a special request for NHL center ice and Robert went above and beyond to get this set up I cannot thank you enough. The only thing we would have liked was to have gas bbq's in the BBQ area , and maybe closer to each condo area somehow. As by the time we got our food back to room it was cold,

If we come back we would bring a patio heater as many mornings and evenings it was chilly and we could. Not sit outside which is something we really like to do.

The parking was great , always lots of room underneath. Having wifi is a must now a days so again nice to have.

Easy walk over to beachside even with us taking our own chairs over

We utilized the gym on a regular basis it would be nice for whoever takes care of this to have fans going or some air flowing thru as it gets way to hot inside, also would be good to have a water supply

The maintenance crew here at the resort is exceptional always on top of all external and internal issues, the pool area was so clean and the grounds well kept

The easiness to get around the area was good, whether we were going out for a meal or shopping lots of options.

Would we come back in a heartbeat, thanks again for a wonderful experience karen and Robert were again so great to work with and without a doubt the easiest owners to deal with.

Great Location - Great Price

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a great location! It is on the lazy river side (Bayside), located on the 3rd floor, very close to the elevators and stairways. Very short walk to the parking garage, walk-across bridge, and pool area. The walk to the beach wasn't that bad either. Condo is tastefully decorated just like the pictures. And is in a great location on the island!

Our 3 complaints - the master bed was EXTREMELY uncomfortable! Very, very hard. The guest bedroom and bunk beds were much more comfortable. Secondly, the wifi did not work. Found it, entered password - would not load a website on any of our phones :( And last, the owners do not pay the yearly fee for beach chairs and umbrealla out on the beachside. A little disappointing. So keep in mind, you will have to pay the daily charge or bring your own - which is alot to carry across the bridge.

Overall we did have a wonderful stay!!! And I DO recommend this condo!!! :)

Florida vacation 2012

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the condo. It was perfect for my family. The pictures were very accurate of the conda. It was exactly the way it was described. The property is very clean and well kept. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The owner was very quick to respond to my questions,this made reservation go very smooth.We could sit on the balcony and watch the kids and other family members in the lazy river. The only thing I would mention ,is the washer is not designed to put many articals in at one time. The first time I used it it overflowed into the room. We had maintance check it out and they said it was ok. We used it many more times during our stay with no problem. Walking over the sky walk was great ,easy way to get to the gulf. We would stay here again. It was one of our best trips to Flourida. We have suggested this property to many people. We didn't spend much time away from the resort so can't say much about the nearby attractions. Thanks again. Hope to go back next year!

Pelican 307

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at your condo. Pelican 307 was very clean and well maintained . The location of the condo is great . This was our 2nd year staying in the Pelican but our 1st year in your condo. We definitely will look into the possibility of renting your condo again in 2013.
