About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunkie Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 to 6)

GREAT LOCATION!! - Ground floor, Gulf side - condo opens to 4000 Sq. ft. pool and hot tub area. A Breezeway away from fitness center. Children's water play area is steps away and the Lazy River( on the bay side) is easily accessible (via crosswalk) Our unit is great for families! The bunkie room has its own floor space (not located in the hall) and its own private bath. SAT. to SAT. (7 nights) rentals during SUMMER MONTHS.

Beautifully decorated. Convenient to Destin hot spots but not in congested high traffic areas. There are great restaurants on Okaloosa Island that are not as crowded as Destin. We LOVE this area! The gulfarium, the conference center, the fishing pier, and a par 3 golf course are all within walking distance! PERFECT for families with children that want to be close to the pool!!!

Comfort and Convenience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great September vacation in this condo! For us, the first floor location was ideal, since we were traveling with a baby. Sure, you usually give up Having an awesome view when you stay on the ground floor, but being SO close to the beach, literally on the pool deck, proximity to parking lot to load and unload, fitness center and walkover bridge more than makes up for it in my book. It was the shortest walk to the beach and we could go and come back multiple times throughout the day without any hassle. Having the beach rentals set up for us each day was really a plus, too! Very nice that they include this! My only negative comment is that I have to agree with a previous poster about the dirty floor... Before we had even finished bringing our stuff in, my one year old needed a bath after crawling around for ten minutes on the floor. I am 99.9% sure this is more of a housekeeping issue than an owner issue, so I feel bad even posting about it here, except that it had already been mentioned before. I picked up some cleaning supplies on our store run and gave the floors and bathrooms a good cleaning before we got settled for the week and then we were all set.

Overall, we had a great experience. Location of the resort is great. Location of the condo itself was great. All the amenities were great. Booking and communication process was great... It all couldn't have been easier! We would love to come back next year!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your stay in our condo. It is totally unacceptable, however, that the floors were not clean. We have them professionally deep cleaned at the beginning of the rental season and after that housekeeping is responsible for their upkeep. We will address this issue with Destin West Management and see that this issue is corrected and does not happen again. Thank you for your feedback.

What fun!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the Best week at Destin West and especially this condo. It was so very convenient opening up right at the pool. Our girls absolutely loved it! All of the emenities were great. The options for many pools, the lazy river was a huge hit and it was just a short walk over the bridge. We even used the pools next door every day. The beach was gorgeous and having the chairs and umbrella set up for you every day was such an added bonus!! We can't wait to come back!! We also recommend Flippers Adventures for snorkeling or even the fireworks cruise in Thursday nights. So much fun!!

What a great place to stay!! Destin West was extremely accomodating to our every need. Loved the ground floor, especially with children. Pool was huge and loved that you could also use the Ramada next door. Beach was a jump away and the weather was beautiful!! I will definitely stay here again. My only complaint was the kitchen floor was very dirty. Praise God for His wonderful beauty!! :)

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Desin West for our vacation for the past 2 years, and had the pleasure of staying in this unit last year. The ground floor units around the pool area are perfect for families with children. We had our own gated patio right beside the large pool on the beach side, which made it just right for us since we had a disabled child with us. There was no laboring back and forth from pool to room every few minutes. The room was very nicely decorated and kitchen was well stocked with whatever you needed for cooking. Can't wait to stay here again this year!
