Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Owner spared no expense in customization and furnishings. From the top of the line mattresses, upgraded granite, great cabinetry and built-ins to the flat screen televisions this condo exudes luxury and relaxation.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the utensils that you will need for that special meal with family and friends. Stainless steel cookware and top of the line appliances are furnished along with mixing bowls and casserole dishes. So whether you decide to dine in or out the kitchen is ready for your needs.

Master bedroom has a king sized bed with top of the line mattress and linens! Also enjoy a flat screen TV and views of the lazy river (at night it glows and is sure to set your mood) Master bath has Jacuzzi tub and separate shower! I also boasts dual vanities and a large walk in closet.

Second bedroom also has a king sized bed with top of the line mattress and linens! Also enjoy a flat screen TV.

The third bedroom has a queen size top of the line bed also with a flat screen TV and built in cabinets. We promise you will love it!!

There is also a top of the line sleeper sofa that is not your typical sleeper. It has a mattress that blows up to provide more comfort than the regular sleeper sofa.

You will enjoy our flat screen HDTV in the living room with cable and we also provide a full movie library for your viewing enjoyment! We also provide wifi for your business or pleasure needs.

The large wraparound front balcony looks straight at the lazy river. Enjoy your meal right on the deck as you watch the lazy river and enjoy all of the scenery of DestinWest Bayside.

309 Heron is very conveniently located right in front of the stairs for Heron and gives you easy access to the amenities of Bayside and puts you next to the walkway for the Gulfside amenities.

Reviewer Comments:

Preface: mgmt co. did a good job taking care of us--we appreciate their efforts. The extenuating issues with the entire complex are not a reflection of this condo or owner: 1)Alarm system for the entire bldg. malfunctioned one afternoon thru part of night causing it to go off MULTIPLE TIMES (at least 5x), and each time the fire dept. had to respond to turn it off. 2)Lazy river filter quit working and was down for 2-1/2 days--not good when that is one of the top reasons why you selected to stay somewhere. Again, not mgmt or owner's fault. As for Heron 309, it is a very nice condo. Wraparound balcony allowed the wind to blow around the side of the unit, which made for a nice relaxing place to sit. (Doubt if middle unit balconies experienced this breeze.) The living room side view was perfect for watching fireworks. The furniture and beds were very comfortable. Unit was clean for the most part, but could use a good deep cleaning (baseboards dusty, sticky tile from floor cleaner build up, master bathroom mildew). Chief complaint: the ceiling fan and lack of lighting in the master bedroom--15 watts in a dark room. I read prior reviews before booking and assumed it would be fixed by the time we got there. NO! So...Even though the ceiling fan is pretty, it does NOT function properly and should be replaced. Bulbs are burned out and can't be easily replaced; light must be left on if you want the ceiling fan on; and the fan makes noise! REPLACE THE CEILING FAN! It does NOT take that long (1-2hrs max) to replace a fan so there is no reason why it can't been done between bookings. We took the lamp out of the living room and moved it to the bedroom so we could find what we wanted in our suitcases at night. Walk over to beach was not bad but if disabled, I recommend staying on gulf side. Location in town and to Destin was good. Enjoyed walking on pier at night. Unit close to stairs and perfect distance away from smelly trash chute! Would possibly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Christine, thank you for your review. We do hate that the inconveniences all seemed to happen at once during your stay. The lazy river being down was completely out of our hands as well as the resort itself, but we totally understand your frustration. Just a quick update about the ceiling fan. This fan has a remote which allows for up-lighting and low-lighting. There is an option to turn the light off and have the ceiling fan run but it's with the remote. We were not aware of any noises but I'm sending maintenance over today to take a look at and definitely replace the entire fan if needed. We certainly do not want anyone else having any problems with it. Thanks again for the great review! We hope to see you back soon.

Reviewer Comments:

It was exactly what you see in the pictures. We thought the pools would be crowded but they wasn't and we went 7/15-7/22. The walk to the beach from Heron was a little longer then we thought but they did furnish wagons to put your coolers and chairs in. The amenities were great. Love the location and the lazy river.

Reviewer Comments:

The condo was very clean and beautiful. The evening security guard Richard Starr harrassed the guest at pool every evening that he worked. He was trying to enforce rules that were not even rules. He started off by telling you he is retired military and law enforcement. If you didnt obey his ridiculous rules he would threaten you by saying he will report you to police for child abuse for allowing your children to get in hot tub. He stated to me and other guest numerous times he is security and we will obey his rules. He made our vacation unpleasant and when we reported him we where told that doesn't sound like our security. So beware of Richard Starr at this resort. The place is nice but security makes it feel like jail.
