Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Destin West several times over the years. This condo was by far one of our favorites. It was comfortable and spacious with beautiful decor. The weather was amazing all week. October has become our favorite time of year to visit Destin West 🙂

Relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this condo! It was a great resort to stay at as a family. We were provided everything we could possibly need in the condo. The condo itself is quiet, we didn't have any issues with noise or the pool areas being too crowded. The Osprey building is very convenient walk down to the lazy river, or walkable distance to the beach. We even walked to dinner one night at a restaurant right on the beach. The owners were very quick to respond if I had any questions. We will be back next summer!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Megan, for becoming one of our treasured 'return guests.' This condo really is central to everything and has a wonderful view of the 'river' and the bay beyond. Sunsets are lovely from the master bedroom and balcony. So glad you decided to do what many have discovered...take a walk on the beach and go to some of our beach restaurants nearby. Don't bother with stress of traffic. Again, thanks again for being a terrific guest! Sherry

Osprey 505 is fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo made our vacation an absolute blast. It was spacious enough for 7 adults with plenty of room to spare! The amenities that come with this condo as well as being able to use the Ramada next door left us with plenty of stuff to do throughout our stay. The condo itself is very clean and updated as stated in the description. Ive stayed at many condos on the gulf coast and this one was undoubtedly the best one we've ever stayed in. The Staff was very easy to work with and responded to emails within a very timely manner. If youre trying to make a decision of a place to stay in destin, look no further! I promise you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Hi Jacob, I really like the part of your review that said you have stayed at many condos on the gulf and you liked ours the best. We are so pleased with being able to make this vacation so memorable! Please do come back; all seasons are wonderful in their own way. I think October is especially so. Sherry

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This condo is at a great location. It was spacious and comfortable. We had two family's staying, 8 people total, and it was perfect. Kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of towels. Shelly was wonderful to work with and quickly addressed any of our concerns.

We enjoyed watching dolphins in the bay from the balcony, the lazy river was relaxing, and access to the beach via the sky bridge was wonderful. Our young kids enjoyed the splash pad located on the beachside. Nothing was overcrowded which made the amenities enjoyable.

Nearby were other attractions that were within walking distance such as the Gulfarium and Fudpuckers, although our favorite was Wild Willy's Adventure Zone.

We enjoyed our stay in the Osprey and look forward to returning sometime in the future.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo and that you'd want to come back. Please do...autumn is so beautiful here ! And we offer a return guest discount. Yes, this condo is great for 2 families and roomy enough that you won't be bumping into one another. And we are central to so many activities which you mentioned. Thanks again, Kendra. Sherry

great place to get away too!

  • 5 of 5

The entire family found something they could enjoy all in 1 location!! The view was great, the rooms were comfortable, we loved sitting and visiting in the patio, and all 3 generations enjoyed the lazy river. The bridge to cross the street to gain beach access or eat dinner was fun to use also. Bill & Sherry were very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!!
