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!​

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!

Loved this beautifully decorated condo!

  • 5 of 5

You will feel at home as soon as you open the door. Very clean and well maintained. Having the beach service was a huge plus! This condo comes everything needed to cook your meals. We loved the fact there were several pools to enjoy, with the lazy river being our favorite. David was an excellent host! Would definitely stay here again!

When you first walk in you realize the owners have down a great job with decorating. The master bed is very comfortable. Clean and has all the essentials needed. Fun place with the beach and many pools. The owner checked on us to make sure we were happy with the condo. Would definitely stay here again.

It was our second year in this exact same unit we love it . The pool is beautiful and the beach is just steps away. And so is just about everything you may want to do. And not to worry if the weather is not sunny there is still plenty to do!

Feel free to contact me back anytime you are ready to come back down. ~ David

Beautiful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this vacation was perfect. The condo was adorable, comfy, inviting, relaxing. It had everything we needed to stay in and make all our meals. All the beds were super comfortable. We loved the resort, the pool was awesome and being able to look over it from our balcony was nice.

Very nice Resort for relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Once we worked out a few issues with the cleaning crew we enjoyed our stay. The owner of the condo was very helpful in resolving the cleaning issues. The cleaning crew manager arrived about an hour after contacting the owner with new sheets and he was very apologetic about the problem. He mentioned the person cleaning this condo was new and that he should have checked before our arrival. At that time we arranged for them to come back the next day to do a full cleaning of the condo.

The filtered water dispenser on the refrigerator didn't work. A maintenance person looked it over and said that it was broken, but didn't mention if it would be fixed before we left.

The price rate for this condo is very good. I gave it 4 stars because of the cleaning that was not preformed before our arrival. The Destin West Beach & Bay Resort complex is our favorite location to stay.

We will keep this condo in mind for our next trip. Hopefully the cleaning crew will do a better job next time. Maybe we can get a discounted rate for our troubles.
