About Peggy Roy - Owner

Peg's Choice Destin Rentals is the name of our business. I'm Peggy and I love the Gulf Coast and this wonderful CORNER-5th floor condo. Staying in a 5th floor corner condo makes a BIG DIFFERENCE with all the outside windows and bedroom terrace. 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 beautiful unit as you sit on the living room balcony viewing the Lazy River, Water-Fall and Zero-Entry Pools, Hot Tubs and Bay, or enjoy the best of views of the sand dunes and Gulf from your private bedroom terrace.

Peggy Roy - Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Peggy Roy - Owner chose Fort Walton Beach

My family and I 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 Sanpiper 501 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 501 as you destination choice.

Another great week!

  • 5 of 5

Just completed our 11th weekly visit to what has become our "home away from home" and already looking to our already booked 12th week in May 2018.

I have written so many reviews on this condo and every one seems to say the same thing - awesome owners, easy to work with, extra clean unit, well stocked kitchen and needless to say Peg and Glenn really care about the folks they share this unit with - you can see the TLC they provide the unit from the time you come in the door until the time you depart.

Once again it was great seeing Peg and Glenn - they were busy doing some work/cleaning in another unit they own, but as usual, they took time out to welcome us back and chat.

I believe in value for money and it is difficult for me to even think about a better, nicer place to spend a week twice a year.

Thanks Peg and Glenn for sharing such an awesome condo.

Amazing Resort, Beautiful Views, Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this condo was exceptional! The condo was better than a 5-star hotel! The resort was so much fun to stay at and the 2 min walk to the beach was perfect. Can't wait to go back and stay there!

Another great year at Destin West

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th year at Destin West, and 3rd renting from Peg and Glenn. They are hands down the best people we've rented from! Their attention to the smallest details really make the difference. They thought of everything you need, and a couple of things you may forget.

The condo was well stocked with all cooking and bedding, all you have to do is unpack. They even supply hand soap at every sink, a few garbage bags, and dish tabs.

We have loved all 3 condos we have stayed in from the Roy's, and they will definitely be our first choice when we come down.

Thanks again for sharing your condos with us!
