About the property

1 King Bed in Master, sofa/bed, separate bunk beds, full living room, 2 baths

This fresh looking Sandpiper PENTHOUSE Condo offers the best of two worlds. It offers breath taking, direct-shot views of the pristine Choctawhatchee Bay , Lazy River, Zero entry and water-fall (seasonally heated)l pools. The Hot tubs, New Marina and BBQ pits are right below your two balconies. This is a 1 Bedroom with Bunk Room and 2 baths Penthouse condo on the Bay side of Destin West. The roof-top terrace, has all the Bay views mentioned in addition to Gulf and beach views across the street. The new designer style Sleeper/sofa and lounge chair in the living area will maximize your comfort and relaxation during your stay. There are TWO private balconies that offer sights of this special vacation area...including the Choctawatchee Bay and Gulf of Mexico. Both floors have very comfortable patio furniture. What a great one-destination vacation spot. Free Wi-Fi, a separate washer and dryer and an infrared BBQ grill on the roof top patio. Oh...did I mention the new Marina that goes out some 400 ft into the Bay (fishing permit included with the condo) to Fish or just wander around, its great entertainment for you and your family.

There are large HI-def flat screen TV's with DVR players in both the living room and master bed room. The bunk beds area also have their flat screen TV with built-in DVD player for the kids to watch their favorite movies. A thick separation curtain offers added privacy for those staying in the bunk beds. A full size separate washer and dryer is also provided inside the condo. The bedroom furniture is classic and very comfortable while the living room is bright and inviting. The new sleeper sofa in the living area will make your experience most enjoyable. Comfortable dining for 6 is no problem on the dining table and bar chairs.

It’s easy to stay with us. You can send us an email or get an instant quote on the price break-down of your stay. Pls don’t hesitate to call or send an email to us, as we are always available to answer you questions or help in any way. We accept payments by Credit Card, Pay Pal, check or money order.

Our commitment is to provide you with a level of comfort, convenience and relaxation you will enjoy as much as we do when we spend our winters at Destin West. We do our utmost to exceed your expectations.


The views from the roof-top floor blow away the condos on the lower floors. You get there by a spiral staircase on the living room balcony that leads up to a private rooftop terrace with 360 degree views of the Gulf, Bay, distant sand dunes, etc... it is just perfect for a family getaway! OH, did I mention the In-fared BBQ pit on the upper terrace. Save the money and cook-in while watching the boats go by in the near-by bay.

An elevate walk way provides safe walking access over highway 98 to the beautiful sugar white sand beach and the amenities associated with the Destin West Gulf property. These amenities include a state-of-the-art work out facility, the largest swimming pool on the island, a smaller partially covered pool that is heated in the cooler months, kiddy splash playground, a kiddy pool, Rock fall pool at the Ramada, beach access, and hot tub, are all included in your stay.

Destin West beach and Bay (Caribbean style resort) is one of the newest and most unique on Okaloosa Island. In the middle of a lush, tropical landscape (bay side) is a lazy river ( the longest in the area) with a zero entry pool and 2 hot tubs. Fish from the bay, catch dinner and grill on one of the many BBQ's. Want to spend time on the beach? Just a fun walk over the SKY WALKWAY. While on the gulf side enjoy all the amenities it has to offer including a 5000 sq ft pool, state of the art fitness center and kiddie spray park. Guests at Destin West also have privileges at the Ramada next door where you can enjoy their swim up bar and grotto pool (a must see) .

Okaloosa Island is centrally located near great restaurants, night clubs, water sports, fishing piers, water parks, aquarium and the Boardwalk that has really fun bars and night clubs. Just over the bridge is the Harborwalk's fine restaurants, shops and fireworks every Thursday night in the summer.

Come visit Okaloosa Island and become an 'Islander'!

Destin West has great amenities such as the Lazy River, Hot Tubs, Zero entry pool and Kiddie Splash Park which are truly unique in the area, you will fall in love with them! The location is perfect... you are within walking distance on the beach from the Boardwalk which has several moderately priced beachfront restaurants, ice-cream shops, volleyball courts, playgrounds in the sand, the area's largest fishing pier. And the beach doesn't get over-crowded near our resort because the resorts aren't packed on top of one another like other parts of Destin.

About Peggy Roy - Owner

Peg's Choice Destin Rentals is the name of our business. I love the Gulf Coast and this wonderful Penthouse condo. We have a passion to pay first-hand, special attention to this property, unlike some mega rental company. We make sure this condo is at it's best for your enjoyment. I know you will love this Penthouse as you sit on the living room balcony or enjoy the best of views from the Penthouse upper floor balcony.

Peggy Roy - Owner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Peggy Roy - Owner chose Florida Main North West

Me and my family really wanted to own a place that offered something special from the ordinary. After a long time of searching it was clear that Destin West offered amenities and features not found anywhere in the Northern Gulf Coast area. When a Penthouse came available, it was crystal clear that this was what we were looking for. No Better views exist of the Bay and the Gulf. We have gone over board to make sure the condo is sparkling clean and well appointed. Come let us show you how pleased you will be to select Sandpiper PH05 as you destination choice.

What makes this condo unique

Cancellation is 60 days prior to check-in. If you must cancel inside the 60 day period, we will try to re-book the condo. If we do, we will refund as much funds as possible that you paid.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Peg & Glenn

We had the best time at your condo in Destin,! What a place! Enjoyed the lazy river tremendously and the weather cooperated so well. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your wonderful vacation home as it was the first time to Destin but will not be the last.

It has gone on our favorite list.

Thank you again, ya'll are the best and hope to stay again.

Fabulous time in Fort Walton/Destin

  • 5 of 5

Peggy and Glenn had everything we needed for our Destin/FW family vacation. We drank our coffee on the balcony while gazing at the beautiful views of the dolphins. We have stayed at Destin West on 2 other Destin trips; it is the only place to stay with it's lazy river and walking access to so many eats, fun & beach. Great Vacation spot!! Thank you!

Love the condo and the view is AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Glen for allowing us to rent your condo. It was beautiful, clean and the view is incredible. Easy access to beach across the street, and best of all THE LAZY RIVER! We loved it and enjoyed it more than the beach honestly. We will certainly be staying in your lovely place again hopefully this summer if it's not booked.
