About Sugar Sands Vacation Rentals

We purchased this condo (#603) as of April 2013. This was our first of three condos in the Destin West Resort. Our other units are #411 and #605. We made many improvements and changes to this condo since purchasing. We wanted to offer our guests a nicely decorated and comfortable rental for the stay at Destin West Resort. We encourage you to rent with us and welcome you into our condo. We find the location to be superb and the view is spectacular.

Why Sugar Sands Vacation Rentals chose Fort Walton Beach

The Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is a premiere choice. Being on Okaloosa Island, it is a much better location than the nearby Destin area. You get access to the same beach and amenities of the surrounding area, but without the huge crowds on the streets and on the beach. This location puts you between the cities of Destin and Ft Walton Beach. You have access to all the same activities, restaurants, and beaches.

Our unit #603 provides the best and most unique view. All buildings on Okaloosa Island are max 6 stories in height. Unit 603 is a top corner unit that is closest 1 bedroom to the beach. With the westward facing balcony, the views of the ocean, beach, pier, pool, city, and sunsets is all spectacularly laid out in front you.

At night the view of the ocean is lost into darkness at other locations. However, the Ramada Inn next door casts spot lights towards the ocean. This illuminates the water and beach which provides a view even at night. It is beautiful and relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay at your condo last week. We had such a great time and your condo was so beautiful and enjoyable to reside in for the week. The resort offered so many great opportunities for our family to enjoy together. The view of the beach is just spectacular. We had a great vacation and will definitely be back in the future.

Great condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough good things about this place. We have stayed at this resort before but not this condo. After staying in this unit, we have found the one! It was so clean and well maintained. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need. It came with beach service, which is a biggie for us. We will definitely stay in this one again!

Our vacation was wonderful. The condo was very clean and comfortable. My husband and my 2 year old were with me and we loved every minute. Everything worked, everything was clean, and we had a gorgeous view of the ocean! One thing that stood out was the exceptional customer service. Frank helped us find a crib rental place, he checked in on us, sent us info again before we left so it was easy to access and even offered us early check in because it was available. Pretty cool that you're paying someone that cares that your stay is nice.

Nice condo, fantastic location, horrible housekeeping

  • 3 of 5

Before we got there, we received great communication via text from a representative. When we arrived, the condo was nicely decorated and the view spectacular. Then when it was time to go to bed, we found multiple hairs on the sheets. It was obvious that housekeeping did not change them from the last residents. I messaged the after hours # as instructed on the paperwork to let them know I was having to wash the sheets before going to bed. The response was that they always provide fresh linens and it was hard to believe that housekeeping would not change them. They then offered to have housekeeping bring another set by in the morning. What was the point in doing that if I had to wash them that night before going to bed? Then we found a few broken items in the kitchen of which we had to report so we would not be blamed or charged for them. My son told me days later that his sheets also did not appear to have been changed but he didn't tell me right away because he figured they wouldn't believe us anyway and he didn't want me to be upset on our vacation. For the amount of money you spend and the time you take to plan a nice vacation, I was extremely disappointed that they didn't seem to care much about me having to clean the place when I just got there to start my vacation. Once we dealt with that obstacle we made sure to spend our remaining time having a nice family vacation because after all, it was about spending time together and creating memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful feedback on the condo decor, view and location. I want to again say that we are sorry that you experienced an issue with the linens. All sheets were freshly laundered, so there should not have been anything stuck to them. Normally, this would have been discovered by our housekeepers and inspectors. You appropriately contacted the support staff, who were very apologetic and offered to bring another pair of sheets. As you say, the offer was declined as you had already re-washed the linens. Regarding the one broken dish in the kitchen, it was removed and replaced. Sometimes guests will break a dish and hide it in the back of the cabinet without our knowledge. We take all feedback on our guest experiences seriously and will certainly follow-up with our housekeeping department accordingly. Best regards, Management.

Destin West #603

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this condo. We were a little worried because of the arrival of hurricane Irma but contacted the office on Saturday morning from Tennessee. We spoke with Allison who advised that it was a little windy but we should be fine. She was very nice and answered our questions. We kept tabs on the weather. We arrived that evening and it was very easy to move our stuff to the condo (carts were provided by elevator) and we parked in the covered parking garage keeping our vehicle out of the weather.

The condo was very nice with a great view. We kept our patio furniture inside for the first day because of the high winds and then beautiful weather the rest of the week. Our toaster did not work on the first morning and they brought us a new one immediately.

We highly recommend this condo and Destin West. The grounds are spotless and well maintained. We were steps from the beach with chairs included.

We would highly recommend this condo and Destin West.

Frank and Amy
