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!​

Great Gulf Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We really love the Gulf with it's beautiful beaches and water. I loved walking to the pier in the mornings. We loved that you could walk to the other side of the resort over the sky bridge. We wished we had went to Fudpuckers another night, since they were great and right across the bridge. My girls loved the huge lazy river and had a great time floating around it with their arm bands. My one complaint is the view, wish we had a better view of the Gulf. We had a great time and David has made check-in and check-out an absolute breeze.

Best condo!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a lot of condos over the years in this area and this one was by far the best for our family! It had everything we needed and a wonderful view! We loved the 8 pools that were available and the free beach service so we didn't have to get out early and fight for a place at the beach! We loved the location that was away from the crowded Destin, and we loved the fire works off the pier and easy access to eating places and the park on the beach near Crab Trap. David was also amazing! He was always available to answer any questions and when we had a death in the family last minute he quickly listed one of the weeks we were supposed to come and it booked and he gave us a refund for that week. He goes above and beyond for his guests! Thank you!

Just as advertised!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a GREAT time on our vacation. I highly recommend this condo to anyone considering a stay at the Destin West. This second floor unit had everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable vacation. It was located in a wonderful spot that allowed you to use the stairs when the elevator was in high demand. Having a beach chair set up made going down to the beach hassle free. We will definitely return!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Destin West was a great place for a multi family vacation. We were able to stay in one building or at the ajoining Ramada. The pool by us was large and we spent a lot of time there. There are other pools available as well as the lazy river. We did have to fight for a table everyday and it would be nice if there were a few more tables but you could probably never have enough. I appreciated that the managers would come out and move towels off a table if no one used it for a couple of hours so you could not throw towels there and then head to the beach for the morning. This unit offered free beach chairs and that was great. There is easy access to Destin but you can find what you need in Fort Walton and avoid the big crowds in Destin. The unit was plenty big for 3 of us but the bunk beds are clearly designed for children and not very comfortable for adults. The descriptions are accurate. I would highly recommend this unit and Destin West and we intend to use it again.
