About Sugar Sands Vacation Rentals.

We love to play in the sand building castles with the kids and watching the regatta out on the water.

Our family relaxes all day in the lazy river and we walk the beach before dinner. There is never a dull moment when we go to the beach - the benefits are awesome - we can feel the stress lift as we listen to the surf while the tide rolls in at night. After tucking the kids in we sit on the balcony with our friends laughing and talking. We have made many memories here - I hope you find our place as rewarding as we have.

Why Sugar Sands Vacation Rentals. chose Fort Walton Beach

We fell in love with Destin West Beach and Bay Resort with its terrific amenities, lazy river, pools and hot tubs. It's friendly atmosphere is incredible. The most family friendly spot on the Gulf coast. We just love it.

What makes this condo unique

Some of the unique benefits are floating down the lazy river in your own world. We have kid friendly environment with plenty to do and special kid activities! Walking distance to fine dining, shopping and the famous Gulfarium! Close to the Convention Center too!

Our favorite is the 4 miles of unspoiled beach next to Destin West on the national seashore. We can walk for hours without seeing another soul. Complete solitude and peace.

Great condo onthe beach

  • 5 of 5

The complex was ver well maintained with nice amenities. Took me a while to find the lazy river as it is at the bay side condos across the hwy. Nice view of the beach from the balcony. Miles of pristine beach for you to enjoy. Plenty of parking as there is a ramp. Condo is nicely furnished with all the comforts of home. Places to eat within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

Good Beach Condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good experience. Very nice Gulf views off the balcony. It was big enough for our family of five but four would fit better. We had a few minor things like the master bath sink not draining but overall the condo has been well maintained. Kitchen has all of the necessary items and the washer and dryer work great. There is no formal check-in so you drive in and go straight to vacation. Very nice.

Destin-West Resort overall is pretty good. The pool is big and kept clean. I am fairly particular about the workout equipment at hotel gyms and Destin-West gets a 5 star for the gym. Free weights, smith machine, treadmills, bikes, and all of the resistance equipment you would expect. The Lazy river is a 5 minute walk across the walkway. Also well maintained and the kids loved it. The only cons we experienced were that wifi is really bad and smoking is allowed on the pool deck (but not at the lazy river :-).

Couple Tips:

On your first day there, first thing in the morning, go down to the beach and go to the rental shack that sits between the Destin-West resort and the Ramada and check-in for your chairs. The later in the day you do this the father down the beach you will be. You only need to do this on the first day.

Condo doesn't provide any beach towels, shampoo, laundry or dish soap (there is soap for a couple dishwasher runs and hand soap). Publix is just 5 mins down the road so easily solved.

Clean condo with all the essentials for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the condo! The condo looked like the images and was clean with essentials provided. Great having a kitchen, extra bathroom and bunk area when traveling with little ones. The reserved beach chairs and umbrella made the beautiful sand beach enjoyable in the hot July weather. Pool was also clean with plenty of tables/chairs. We did use the splash pad at the neighboring hotel for our toddler but she wasn't allowed in their pools since still in swim diapers which wasn't a big deal to us since had condo pool. It was our first time to the area and it was more build up/commercial that we expected but overall the weekend was exactly what we needed - soft sand beach, pools, relaxing and good food.

Great location, area, amenities for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Loved the proximity to the beach, as well as the pool/neighboring amenities. The kids loved the lazy river and the splash park located Nextdoor, as well as the room with bunk beds/their own TV. Would definitely come back again, great family vacation spot.

Our stay was Ok but not the greatest at DWGS.

  • 2 of 5

The unit shows good in pictures on vrbo but our expectations from the vrbo and ssrents were not met. Cable TV did not have HBO, digital channels made it difficult to view anything you may want to watch, Wi-Fi was horrible and only worked for a minute at best on each of our children's tablets hard to deal with on rainy days and especially at night with no children shows to watch on spotty cable. Towels, soaps, TP included but no beach toys as accustomed in other rentals. Signin log was dated as were fixtures, icemachine A/C and patio door lock were broke, ssrents sent service and A/C was remedied, all else were not.overall, the property met expectations for the kids but left the parents wondering what next could go wrong and discouraged. Pools were well maintained, beach service saved our trip without this inclusion we would have left the unit on the second night out of our 7 night stay. Management didn't know how to remedy our concerns and seemed not to care as we would have appreciated. We will need to do more research and hope not to get a unit with inclusions such as cable and internet icemachine and A.C. prior to setting up our next contract.

Owner's Response: Hi Greg, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback and would like to mention that the Resort has changed communication companies, which now includes better quality for cable and internet reception. I know we had some extended rain while you were here and that is hard on the reception, as well as entertaining children. On beach toys, we usually do not keep them due to sand and closet space. They are super reasonable 1/2 mile at a Beach Shop on the Island. We did remedy the A/C situation quickly and also resolved the lock on the sliding glass door the same day. The Ice Maker was a problem and we are so sorry about that inconvenience. We scheduled that replacement and in the interim delivered ice to you. We ARE very interested in any concerns our guest have and our goal is to assist you in having a wonderful time on your vacation. We regret it was not a better experience for you and your family. Reading over your comments, I'm just not sure what we missed? However, we do take your review very seriously and thank you for taking the time to submit it.

There so many reasons to choose the Gulf of Mexico as your next vacation hot spot. Aside from the most beautiful white sand you've ever seen. This area has great local attractions that the whole family will enjoy. Water parks like Big Kahunas for some serious fun in the sun and the Gulfarium to get a firsthand look at some of our local species. Along with the Silver Sands outlet Mall and the Destin Commons for all your shopping needs; it has it all! Not to mention some of the best seafood restaurants around.
