Gulfside 402 - Upgraded True Oceanfront Condo w/2BR + Bunks

If you're looking for a place with sugar-sand beaches and the most stunning sunsets in Destin, you've found it. If you're looking for somewhere to sit back and watch dolphins frolicking from your balcony, you've found it.

If you're looking for paradise on the Gulf side of Florida - you're in luck, because you've found it, right here at Destin West ~ Gulfside 402.

Newly redecorated to reflect tropical bliss, Gulfside 402 offers an exclusive beach experience for sun-seekers who expect the very finest: It's one of only 10 BEACHFRONT units at Destin West, and boasts sensational west-facing sunset views - and the chance to watch the colorful bursts of fireworks over the pier.

A true oceanfront unit, you can step outside and find yourself at the surf's edge in less than a minute, or sink into the hot tub and let all of your worries dissolve in the fresh sea air.

BEACH + POOL + TONS OF ACTIVTIES ARE JUST STEPS AWAY

Toss a football or fly a kite on the wide sugar-white sand beach. Walk to the fishing pier, the Gulfarium, or many shops, restaurants, and activities at the Boardwalk. Take just a few steps through the protected seaside dunes and feel the surf splash at your ankles. Turn left at the ocean and quickly enter a 3.5 mile stretch of undeveloped land and empty beach… this pristine wildlife preserve is perfect for that morning stroll down the beach.

The pool area at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is second to none, and the largest pool - 5000 square feet - is just a few steps from your patio! The kiddos will also have a blast at the nearby Splash Playground. Or you can use the Skybridge to access the Bayside amenities and wade into the zero-entry pool or catch a leisurely ride on the 700 ft lazy river, where you'll enjoy the rush of the nearby waterfall feature.

Just a few miles away you'll find Destin's harbor, where you can choose from special trips like charter boat fishing, dolphin cruises, sunset sailing, or just grab a bite to eat or do some shopping while watching the sunset.

Also less than 10 miles from the airport and 1 mile from the grocery store.

We just experienced our best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning when we were searching out a condo to stay in Mr. Jenn was extremely thoughtful and helpful. He contacted us with helpful travel tips and let us know promptly when our condo was ready to check into, which was a little early! The condo was very nice & clean! The perfect location at Destin West! Upon check-in we noticed the refrigerator had a water leak. I contacted Mr. Jenn & inside of 10 minutes the repairman had it fixed! Great job Mr. Jenn & CoastalVibeVactions !! We will definitely be back!

The best unit at Destin West - now even better!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is directly on the beach with awesome views (we have seen dolphin from our balcony every year). It is decorated beautifully and appointed with all the details that make your vacation effortless. We have stayed in this unit for many years and are so spoiled that we refuse to rent any other unit. Our last stay was even better because David Jenn helped set us up with a boat slip on the bay side, so my husband who is a fishing enthusiast could bring his own boat and fish every day. It is the perfect unit in the perfect vacation spot with something for everyone to do. We enjoy the views, the beach, the pools, the lazy river, the splash park, the hot tubs, the pier, the restaurants and shops and now we can also enjoy boating in the bay! It is an annual family tradition that my entire family looks forward to!

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Gulfside 402. David Jenn was very helpful, prompt, and professional in assisting with any of our concerns. He provided great reviews of local restaurants and things to do prior to our arrival and well laid-out instructions for our arrival, our stay, and our departure. He also was very quick to lend a helping hand to any items I may have overlooked. There were no concerns related to this condo. It is one of the ten best units in the Destin West complex, partially because of its location and views of the Gulf. The condo was clean and very well appointed (make sure you look under the beds and in the closets for everything that can be used at the beach!) Kitchen was well-stocked and water pressure was great. Beds were very comfortable and additional pillows and blankets were provided throughout. Five minute walk to the lazy river (across the bridge) and the gulfside pool is an easy elevator ride down. The beach, itself, is not crowded; especially when compared to some of Destin's beaches. Destin West is maintained very well. The grounds are clean and special care is taken throughout the complex. The complex is within close proximity of restaurants, attractions, a grocery store, and Destin. I spent a great deal of time looking at dozens, maybe hundreds of places to stay for our vacation in the area, and I genuinely believe that this condo is one of the best. The cost is more than fair and delivers a fantastic value. Thank you for an incredible week, David!

Awesome in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our beachfront condo at Destin West! Our view was beautiful! The pools are fantastic. Our teenage kids enjoyed the pools & lazy river more than the beach! We booked with David & Jenn 402 beachfront & were extremely pleased. The beach water was not at its greatest during our stay but the great condo & pools & then the shrimp boil & fireworks (next door at Ramada kept us entertained. There is so much to do here. The lazy river is a major plus for the kids while the beautiful view & convenience of the beach was what we adults were looking for! Loved our stay & plan to do this again next year! Thank you David & Jenn!
