About Sherry Knight
We are a large family with four young kids and loving grandparents who all love the Emerald Coast with its miles of perfect beaches, countless amenities and wonderful climate.
Sherry Knight purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Sherry Knight chose Ft Walton Beach
After living in the area for five years on two different assignments with the Air Force our family fell in love with the Destin area. We were fortunate to get the opportunity to purchase a family retreat that is large enough to bring three generations together in the heart of the Emerald Coast.
What makes this Condo unique
Destin West is the jewel of Destin area resorts. It is a one of a kind paradise that brings the beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay and Gulf of Mexico together to combine the best of both worlds. It is packed with some of the areas very best amenities. Our children can literally spend hours in the Lazy River, zero-entry pool and splash park. Located in the very heart of the area we love walking to the Boardwalk, restaurants and shopping on the island and are just 5 minutes across 4 miles of secluded beach from Destin. Minutes from the best golf courses, dining, outlet shopping, theme parks, the airport, and both Air Force Bases you could not pick a more central location for a home away from home. We selected our condo because of the luxury, size, and amazing views. At 1776 Sq/ft it is an oversized three bedroom that can easily accommodate our large family with space to spread out and relax. The master suite, great room, and large patio offer sweeping views of the bay that we wish we could wake up every day to!

Beautiful condo, great pools and views. Convenient location. Our family had a great time!
Hi Mary Jane,
We are so glad you and your family had a great time here at our condo and at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. Please do come back.
Autumn is a great time to enjoy coming down for an extended weekend...still warm and always gorgeous!
Great condo in a beautiful location
We took our first extended vacation in February and this condo worked out perfectly. There was plenty of room for us and another couple if they wanted to visit during our stay. The décor is classy looking compared to some other beach condos that we looked at, and the grounds and condo itself were very clean and well maintained.
The view of the bay from the balcony or master bedroom is beautiful, and it is a short walk to the beach or boardwalk if you are like us and want to sample some of the local bars or restaurants that the area has to offer.
Whenever we had an issue or question Bill or Sherry were very responsive and made sure our concerns were quickly addressed. We were impressed with the management team as well as the accommodations.
We hope to make it back again soon for another stay.
Thank you so much for your review. As the management team, we try to help in any way we can to make our guests feel at home and pleased with choosing us! It is also nice to be reminded why our condo is perfect for couples...roomy and offers privacy for all.
Please do choose us again,
Clean spacious room with great views
We enjoyed our stay in December here. It was clean, quiet and comfortable the views were terrific. My boys enjoyed fishing off the pier, swimming in the lazy river and the beach. We had a glitch with the internet and the owner was quick and nice to fix. Only complaint was the limited cookware. (I like to cook) the can opener was not functional. Other than that we loved our stay here. Thank you.
The views are terrific...watch all the bay goings on from your quiet balcony. What a great way to begin and end the day? And so glad your sons enjoyed the fishing!
I'll make sure the can opener is replaced.
And that during our inventory take, we make sure the kitchen is again restocked.
Could you email me any items you feel are really needed to the 'foodie' to be happy cooking?
Thanks so much,
Fantastic condo with awesome view!!!
We enjoyed this condo with our children for fall break!! We had incredible weather, and the boys enjoyed fishing off the docks!
Fishing off the docks of the bay sounds wonderfully fun! A great time for the entire family...we couldn't wish it better for our guests.
Our favorite place to stay in Destin and at Destin West!
Wonderful, relaxing home away from home. We love taking the family here. Love the space, large balcony and wonderful amenities. Bill and Sherry are the best managers we vacation with!!
Thank you so much for your review!
This is a spacious condo and ideal for a family!
Please come back!
