About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Do you like pina coladas and gigantic outdoor pools?

How about sand between your toes and hugely gorgeous ocean that makes you contemplate your place in the world (in a good way)?

What about easy access to a winding lazy river so relaxing that it's been known to cause impromptu floating naps?

Whisk away worries that don't fall in the category of "Should I order fried shrimp bucket or the blackened grouper?" at Gulfside Unit 209, where you'll find yourself just steps away from the warm waters of the Gulf and the shops and restaurants of Okaloosa Island.


Because it's steps from the gulf. Because it's got a killer view of the sugar-sand beaches and the knock-me-out blue ocean. Because you can whip up a batch of strawberry daiquiris (virgin for the kids) in the well-equipped kitchen to enjoy al fresco on your gorgeous patio. Because the décor will remind you that you're in tropical paradise. Because flip-floppin' it down the boardwalk to the beach feels like the best walk you've made in years.

It's your family's newest getaway. Kids will love the bunk room w/door (it's a law of nature) and you'll adore the peaceful master bedroom complete with beachy décor and big comfy bed (king-size).

Two full bathrooms ensure that sunscreen application happens before you hit the pool and that everyone can get as fresh and clean before showing off your tans over fresh fish tacos.

Don't enjoy lugging massive suitcases? No worries at all: there's a washer and dryer in the unit. There is also a sleeper sofa in living room and ceiling fans to keep you comfortable.


They're so good that we said it three times. Looking for a huge gulf-side pool? Check. Kiddie pools? Yep. Generously sized hot tub? We've got three of 'em. Get bikini-ready by starting off the day by pumping iron in the sleek state-of-the-art fitness center, and then spend the morning floating on the long lazy river as it winds around palm trees on the Bayside of the Resort. The resort amenities are endless and help make sure that there is always something exciting to explore without even having to leave the resort.


You're pretty much in the heart of it all. And by "it all" we mean everything from miles of untouched picturesque sand dunes to beach-front restaurants, ice-cream shops, and places for mom & dad to grab a fruity frozen drink.

Make your own wake when you rent a jet ski or channel your inner Misty May on one of the outdoor volleyball courts. After that you'll probably want to visit Okaloosa Island's The Boardwalk and stuff yourself silly with all-you-can-eat shrimp at Floyd's Shrimp House, where flip-flops are practically the dress code.

Sound like heaven? It is. And we've got good news: We can help you make your body-surfin', flip-floppin', daquiri-sippin' dreams come true. Book today!​

Destin West - Gulfside 209

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect vacation week at Destin West. My wife and I were admittedly a bit nervous bringing our 2-year-old and 5-month-old to the beach together on our own for the first time. This place had everything we could have ever needed to make it a wonderful, relaxing stay. Our daughter loved the splash pad, pool, lazy river, and beach - the only trouble with her was decided which she wanted to go to first every day. The unit came with the ultimate survival kit for small kids - a pack-n-play, tent, chairs, beach toys, and a beach buggy to move our gear across the sand easily. This is a truly magical place and my family looks forward to coming back for many years to come.

Beautiful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are very pleased with our stay. The condo was very clean and well stocked. It had a great view of the ocean and the pool. David was great to work with. We appreciated the use of the washer and dryer in the unit, and David also provided free beach chair service and other items in the condo including a pack and play, umbrella stroller, and beach items including extra chairs, and extra umbrella and body boards for the kids! The resort is amazing and the pools are to die for! Can't wait to come back next year!

My favorite Spring Break spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is my families third time staying in this beautiful condo. From the moment you walk through the door, it is absolutely welcoming. You can spend your entire vacation visiting all of the pools and amenities. My favorite part of the day was time spent in the beach chairs listening to the ocean and watching dolphins swimming in the background.

The condo was wonderfully clean (my kids loves the bunk room), the customer service was great and I highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing and luxurious stay in the Destin area!

I've already booked for my fourth visit!!

Best Place to Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

As always Destin West was great! This was my 5th year staying here and its hard for me to go anywhere else. I have never tried going thru VRBO but now that I have I will be doing again. The listing description was very accurate. The property is always clean and well maintained. The Owner was great, anything you needed, he was quick to respond to you. I would highly recommend this property to my friends and family. We will be looking at this place again next year. Beach Service was great, we were at the beach everyday, its nice having the service, you don't have to carry any chairs or an umbrella, just your cooler and beach bag. Every year that we are in Destin, we always eat at McGuire's Irish Pub , its a must!, The Back Porch is another good place to eat and of course the Crust Pizzeria. We just love coming here, Thanks again David!
