Tracy Brooks Saucier purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tracy Brooks Saucier chose Florida North West

We chose this property because of the many amenities that it has to offer on site. Not only is it family oriented, it can also serve as a romantic getaway for a couple needing some special time together. If you've had a long day, you can relax in your beautiful room, on your balcony or head down to the pool side bar for a refreshing beverage. If your still full of energy and want some exciting nightlife...head on down to Harbor Walk Village and enjoy yourself shopping, dining and dancing the night away! The resort has a great restaurant if you want to stay on property. Brick and Spoon serves from 7 AM - 3 PM. At 3 PM until closing the restaurant serves from the Chips menu. Both have great food! The Brunch is Awesome!

Stunning Sunsets From Your Balcony, Everything right at your fingertips, walking distance to many fine restaurants, Exercise Facility, largest pool in Destin

Amazing view equals amazing vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the Palms of Destin, the unit was wonderful and the view was spectacular. My family had a great time and will definitely be back to stay again. The only thing to know is on the day of check out make sure you go down VERY early to get a cart.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed our unit. We work hard to insure that our guests have a great time and are comfortable in our condos. Depending on the day of the week, there may be a hard time getting a cart. There are over 400 units at The Palms. Sorry you had issues. As an individual owner, I have no control on the luggage carts. I do know that more have been ordered, but if a lot of folks are checking out, there may be a wait, just like at any other facility with a large number of folks checking out at the same time.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Very well put together. Tracy, the owner is very organized and gave us all the information we needed before arriving. The condo was very clean and had the cookware we needed. It was perfect for our family of 4. The location is close to food, shopping and the beach! We had a blast and would definitely come back here.

Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly how it was stated. Had everything that you needed and everything was in good working order. It was clean and cozy. The view from the balcony was amazing. The kids loved the pool. We went during spring break and it was never busy. There was always more then enough lounge chairs and you hardly ever had to wait for the elevator. Staff and those that lived there were always polite. The beaches are beautiful and everything is really close. Would recommend it to anyone. We look forward to going again.

GREAT Unit, VERY Nice owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of July 9, 2016 in this unit. The unit was perfect for us, we were very impressed with the view and furnishings. Pool was a huge hit with the kids! The owners, Tracy and Johnny were awesome!!! We had a few hiccups during our stay and they went above and beyond to take care of us. I would highly recommend this condo.
