Some decisions in life are true conundrums - tough choices we just have to make.
This is one of them.
Now's the time to decide - will you take your morning coffee on the shaded terrace, or will you summit the spiral staircase to enjoy your cup of java on the private rooftop deck?
It's a rough life at Rooftop Roost (officially, Pelican PH-02, bayside), where the hardest decisions you'll make all day are where to view the sunrise and sunset, whether to prepare fresh fish in the kitchen oven or on the rooftop grill, and if you'd prefer to dine overlooking Gulf of Mexico views or vistas of Choctawhatchee Bay.
And that's just a taste of the tough times you'll have at Rooftop Roost, a penthouse condominium at Destin West Resort. Newly updated and outfitted in designer furnishings, you'll find it challenging here to even recall the tiniest details of regular life - challenging to think of anything but the sound of the sea, the whisper of the breeze, and the emerald hues of the bay outside your windows.
Rooftop Roost beckons, tempts and cajoles you to forget the weight of the world - to let the stress melt away and the relaxation roll in. Offering up a master bedroom with king-sized bed, a bunkroom with two twins, and a sleeper sofa, this Destin West condo is a soothing escape for the whole family. And with additions like new LED HTDVs, Tommy Bahama master suite bedding, plush new furnishings, and a cozy rooftop with 360º - yes, full circle! - views, this penthouse promises that even the toughest decisions are ones you'll love to make.
But hey, we know you're not just here for the 360º views, rooftop terrace, and two bedrooms: you're here for Destin West Resort. And we don't blame you. The resort's list of amenities is almost embarrassing, with offerings like a 5,000 square-foot swimming pool, kid-friendly zero-entry (aka beach) pool, two giant Jacuzzis, winter-heated waterfall pool, and the region's largest lazy river. Booyah, we said lazy river. (And it lights up at night!)
Meander across the resort's private footbridge, and you're on a pristine, white-sand beach along the Gulf of Mexico's Choctawhatchee Bay. Rent boogie boards, sea kayaks, or jet skis; sign the kiddos up for resort activities; and sweat off Florida's epicurean delights in the state-of-the-art fitness center. Yes, without a doubt, Destin West Resort is one of the most family-friendly, well serviced, and upscale locales on the island.
This condo is perfect for:
A lot of rentals force you into cookie cutter molds. Not us. At Coastal Vibe Vacations, we believe that every vacationer has the right to a personalized vacation that's tailored to their needs and wishlist. With that in mind, Pelican's Perch is well suited to:
~ Small Families: Traveling with the kids? With one master bedroom, a twin bunkroom and a sleeper sofa, this penthouse easily sleeps a couple and 3 kiddos.
~ Couples: Spread out with space, views for miles, and plenty of rooftop romance.
~ Vacationers Who Love Views: If you're a fan of 360º gulf and bay panoramas, lazy rivers and enormous pools (and who isn't?), Rooftop Roost is for you.
~ Multiple families: Need more space? We're happy to book you into both Pelican PH-02 and Pelican PH-03. This will offer each family private space while still being right next door. Check out Pelican PH-03's listing at www.vrbo.com/611098.
Nearby Activities & Attractions
The condo is conveniently located on Destin's Okaloosa Island, just steps away from a veritable buffet of things to do, places to see, and experiences to live. Even if you spent a few months here, you'd be hard-pressed to fit in even half our list of favorites!
That said, we're also happy to make recommendations for activities and attractions further afield; just let us know what you love to do, and we'll make it happen. We also send all guests our complementary Destin Insider's Guide, complete with special discounts and deals exclusively for Coastal Vibe guests!
Now without further ado, here are a few of our favorite things:
~ Destin West Resort: 7 outdoor pools, 3 whirlpool spas, a lazy river, private beach access, children's programs, a fitness center, special winter programs, and more awesomeness await.
~ Private charter fishing: Wet your line and experience why Destin has been nicknamed the "luckiest little fishing village," with catches like red snapper, grouper, amberjack, king mackerel, and more. Plan your fishing early, and spend the rest of your stay grilling up your catches!
~ Motor boating: Make waves and catch rays! Fire up the engine and cruise down the bay, inquire in quiet coves, drop anchor at Crab Island for an afternoon dip, or follow a pod of dolphins - the bay is your oyster.
~ Local beaches: Dig your toes into powder-soft, white sand at any of the 13 public access beach points in Destin.
~ Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park: Take the kids (and kids-at-heart) to see dolphins, sea lions, seals, alligators, sea turtles, stingrays, otters and much more. Animal shows and behind-the-scenes encounters held daily.
~ Championship Golf: Unleash your skill and swing at Destin's numerous world-class golf courses, including Kelly Plantation, Rigatta Bay, and Sandestin's four championship courses.
~ Shopping: If you get the zen to spend, head over to the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Destin Commons, Harborwalk Village, Baytowne Wharf, and other Destin shopping hotspots.
~ Go-carts and Mini-Golf: Go wild at The Track, a recreation center with go-carts, mini golf, bumper boats, bungee jumping, arcade games, and more.
~ Day cruises: Explore the Gulf of Mexico, your way - theatre cruises, dolphin cruises, dinner cruises, and more. There's even a pirate cruise to thrill your youngest family members!
~ Water recreation: Popular water sports include waverunner rentals, paddle-boating, kiteboarding, parasailing, kayaking, and jet-skiing.
~ Other activities: There are bike and jogging trails, the Emerald Coast Conference Center, Big Kahuna's Water & Adventure Park, old-timey Boardwalk, and plenty of other things to do in and around Destin.
~ Rainy Day?: Mosey on over to the neighboring Fudpuckers (a one-of-a-kind Destin experience!) and its Fat Daddy's arcade, and see if you can earn enough tickets for your dream prize - or beat my NBA Hoops high score. (Betcha can't.)

Why David Jenn chose Ft Walton Beach
We purchased our condo at Destin West Resort for a couple of reasons. First, the amenities such as the Lazy River and Kiddie Splash Park are truly unique in the area and we just fell in love with them! Second, the location is perfect... you are within walking distance on the beach from the Boardwalk which has several yummy 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. Once we decided that Destin West was the resort for us... the penthouse condo was a no-brainer! The views from the top floor blow away the condos on the lower floors. And in addition, it has a spiral staircase on the 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!
Pool / Spa
Fantastic, couldn't be any better!!!
Loved everything about the property, amenities and closeness to restaurants and things to do.
Hey Michael. We are so thrilled you and your family enjoyed their stay. There are so many great amenities and restaurants so close. Feel free to call me when you are ready to come back. ~ David
Several pools and a lazy river at this resort. Check in process SO easy...owner emails keypad code for front door, so you don't have to make a separate stop at an office.
Hi Laurie. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. We love the pools as well at Destin West. We would love to host your family again soon. From our family to yours. ~ David and Lisa
Extremely happy with David Jenn & condo. View was wonderful & loved the rooftop deck. Complex was beautiful. We were upset with the overzealous security guard that "barked" commands at us. Instead of asking us to get out of hot tub because it thundered, he yelled it as though we were disrespectful teenagers. We're in our 50's & certainly not causing any problems. The daytime security guards were extremely friendly but the older nighttime guard was quite rude. Will rent from David Jenn again but probably not at Destin West.
So glad to hear that you enjoyed our condo. Thank you for providing feedback on the security guard. We will ensure that this feedback gets to the appropriate person. We look forward to hosting you again.

Hey Samantha. So happy you and your family had such a nice stay in Destin. I would have to agree that the pools, lazy river and splash pads are so much fun. We can't wait to have your family come back soon. ~ David
