Our condo is located on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach just 4 miles west of Destin. The island is about 1000 feet wide with the Choctawhatchee Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. This is the only resort with both beach and bay access. Our condominium overlooks the Bay, lazy river and pools. It is one of a few that offers a heated pool, and it is the only resort on the island with a 700 foot lazy river (everyone loves this!!). A perfect place to relax in the sun. As an added treat, on occasion you can watch the Blue Angels practice overhead.

In addition, there is a 4900 square foot pool, a zero entry pool (great for the little ones), a kiddie pool, a water spray park, three huge hot tubs for guests to relax in, and an elevated walkover to the beautiful white sand beaches.

Also, we have an incredible 2,500 square foot state of the art fitness center available to all guests.

About Lori Vieau

Born and raised in Grand Haven, MI on the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan. I married my high school sweetheart and we have two awesome boys. My husband and I both went to college and began our careers in Texas, then moved to Memphis ,TN and lived in Memphis for 18 years. We have since moved back to our hometown to help take care of aging parents.

Lori Vieau purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lori Vieau chose Fort Walton Beach

The panhandle of Florida has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and we fell in love with Fort Walton Beach area on our first visit back in 2004. Our condo complex has one of the best beaches, pool areas (lazy river), amenities, and georgeous landscaping and that is why we purchased a condo here. In addition, we have friends who own condos in the area as well and we just love to spend time here.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is a very family friendly place to stay and once you visit you will want to come back every year to create memories with family and friends.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

I believe this is our 4th year staying in this condo and we always love it. The lazy river is very relaxing, and it's nice that it's so easy to get to both the beach and bay. We spent many days at the bay, our 7 year old son catching hermit crabs while my husband tried his hand at mullet fishing with a cast net. At least 3 nights we took our food down to the grills between the lazy river and the docks and grilled up dinner with a beautiful view. We drove to Pensacola one day to try and watch the Blue Angels practice, but unfortunately the practice got cancelled. But the naval air museum is still worth visiting, and the drive back we went down to Pensacola Beach and then drove along the peninsula until we found a good place to pull off and spend some time in the surf. All in all another great family vacation on Okaloosa Island!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. This is the 2nd year that we have stayed at the Destin West bay side. We love all the amenities and the relaxing atmosphere. Our condo was very clean and exactly as the pictures showed. I would recommend it to all my friends and look forward to visiting again next year.

Great location with great pool access!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo even if a tropical storm made a couple of wet days in Florida! This condo is in a great location with easy access to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. The condo was set up nicely and clean. We loved the access to the 3 pools and lazy river on our side and it was so nice to be able to go across the street to visit more pools and the beach. The balcony was also a great feature to sit on for breakfast and lunch. The bunk beds also made for a great place for the kids to have their own space.

During our stay the refrigerator started making noises and didn't seem to be working correctly late one night; however, the owner returned our call that night and handled the situation quickly scheduling a repairman to take care of it. The owner kept us updated on the arrival times of the repairman so we weren't surprised with a visitor.

Overall this is a great place and would love to come back soon!

Our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, very clean, great atmosphere around the condo complex . It has been almost two weeks, since we came home and we are still swooning over our stay at Fort Walton Beach. Lori was super easy to deal with, any questions I had, were answered fast and in a timely manner. I would recommend this place anytime. I think my husband enjoyed the lazy river more than our 4 year old did ;-) I used the gym 4 times, while there and it is very clean as well. Any kind of equipment you could want. The walk to the beach didn't take more than 5 minutes (even with all the stuff you are packing LOL). We will be back for sure. Thanks again for this experience.
