About the property

Condo, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bunk area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 with sleeper sofa)

Come and enjoy Destin West Beach and Bay Resort in our lovely ground level condo, unit #104!

Our condo was NEWLY PAINTED throughout March 2015....walls, doors, and trim! We also bought ALL NEW BEDDING in all of the bedrooms. This is clean, updated, and well-maintained.

The huge perk of our condo is that we are not only a 2 bedroom, 1 Bunk, 2 Bathroom floor plan (the largest on the beachside), but we are also a ground level condo. This is a highly desirable condo because we have a very large porch that overlooks the pool area. You have a private fence that separates our patio from the pool so that the kids are safe. But at the same time you have quick access to the pools. Head into the condo for a quick snack. Forgot your towels? No problem, our condo is right there.

The condo is colorfully decorated and has everything you need in the kitchen. We also provide all towels and linens. We have our own beach cart and two chairs that we leave on our back porch for your use. Any beach toys tenants leave, we also have these available to you.

You will love the quick access to the enormous 5,000 sq.ft. pool in our backyard, one kiddy pool, a hot tub, and Splash Gardens which is a water playground area. You also have access to the beautiful rock waterfall pool next door at The Ramada.

Tired of pools? Then we are only ONE door away from the beach boardwalk that walks you straight to the gorgeous sugar-white sands of Destin West. Relax and enjoy amazing views of the emerald green waters. Get a drink at the Tiki Hut located right in front of the Ramada Inn. Take a walk towards the fishing pier that goes straight into the Gulf of Mexico. Or choose from a number of beachfront restaurants at The Boardwalk which has two beachfront playgrounds, shops, and volleyball nets.

Tired of crowds? Then walk east towards Destin and you will come upon 4 miles of old world Florida...nothing but mountainous sand dunes and privacy.

If a day is rainy, The Gulfarium is right next to The Boardwalk. It's like a small Sea World that has great shows for the kids.

And if that's not enough to do, enjoy ALL of the amenities on the Bayside at Destin West for free! There is a beautifully landscaped 700 foot lazy river that is lush and relaxing. All large yellow inner tubes provided for free. Float and enjoy the serene views of the bay. Take a dip in the waterfall pool or relax at the zero-entry level pool while your young toddlers enjoy the freedom of playing safely in the water. Grills are located on both the beach and bay for grilling hot dogs or your catch of the day. The bay is great for hermit crab hunting or fishing. The beach is great for body surfing, building sandcastles or relaxing.

So come and make yourself at home in our wonderful unit #104 where you can fully relax and enjoy a wonderful vacation at Destin West. We hope to make your stay a breeze!

Beautiful property, great location!

  • 4 of 5

Unit 104 on the beachside was very nice! Spacious and beautifully decorated. Location could not be better. Right out the door into the pool with a great gated patio. Condo complex was great! Well maintained. The only complaints we had was a frigid pool (but it was Oct and the nights are cooling down). We also noticed mold on the ceilings in the bathrooms (worse in the master). You could smell it. We all ended having sinus/allergy issues while there. Left a day early as my son has allergies and had an asthma attack. Our symptoms improved within 24 hrs of leaving. Just a warning for anyone with these same concerns. Something the owners might want to address. Otherwise a great time!

Owner's Response: Hi Brandy, I am so sorry I didn't know about the mildew. Please contact me or any owner in the future if you have issues so that they can remedy the situation quickly. I went to the condo after you checked out and saw a small mildew patch by the air vent on the master bathroom ceiling and an even smaller spot in the corner of the shower ceiling. I immediately sprayed with bleach and wiped it down and it killed the mildew and is now gone. Our maintenance man mentioned that most guests don't turn on the fan in the bathrooms when they shower which help with humidity and possible mildew growth. He checked and there were no leaks in the ceiling. At times, many gulfside condos can have a musty smell that out of town guests sometimes notice simply because they are not used to it. We are right on the ocean and it is very humid in our area. The best way to get rid of it is to crank the AC on and make sure the sliding glass doors are closed. I do understand the seriousness of asthma though. My best friend's daughter has severe asthma and had the same thing happen in a cabin in TN. This is the first time this has happened in this condo or any of mine. So hopefully I took care of it. Thanks so much for coming and I hope you can come again! Sincerely, Shelley

Beautiful, clean, perfection

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 2 kids had an absolutely wonderful time in Florida thanks to this Gulfside condo. From the arrival to departure, we were impressed. This unit is on ground level which made it very easy to fix lunches/dinners while the kids swam. Beach access is easy to get to as well. The pictures listed do not do this specific condo justice. It is very clean, up to date, comfortable beds, fully furnished kitchen and laundry in the unit! Several friends that we met there could not believe the difference between their condo and ours. The owner and Shelley know what a true vacation needs. This ground condo is a must for a family or even older couple who doesn't want to deal with elevators or walking. We will be back next year and hope to stay in Gulfside #104!!!!

Love this condo!

  • 5 of 5

If I visit ft Walton again I will book this condo! Great location! You can walk to anything you need. The ramada next door even had a grill and an Alvin's. Loved being on the first floor and so close to the beach and pool. Great for kids. Condo was very nice. I only had one issue with the key pad but it was repaired with in the hour. Recommend this condo!

The condo was clean. It was nicely decorated and spacious. We enjoyed the privacy between the rooms.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo was clean and spacious. We had good privacy between the rooms. Our condo was on the 1st floor. We were able to step out on the patio, out the gate and into the pool. The pool was large and wonderful. We were close to the beach, less than 5 minutes away. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

LOVED it!

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING time during the week in our condo. My only regret is that we didn't book it for two weeks! We loved having the pool right outside our patio and the beach within a minute's walking distance. I can't wait to go back. I would book this room again in a heart beat!
