Hello and welcome to our colorful condo!
Our peaceful and inviting nautical condominium is perfect for an amazing bay and beach vacation. With a great location on the surreal Emerald Coast, a 700 foot Lazy River, you are sure to come back year after year. This unit is a ground floor unit/lanai where guests can sun or step outside the gate into the lazy river with a gorgeous bay side backdrop. The waterfall pool, gradual entry pool and two large hot tubs provide a variety of activities for water lovers. The patio/sunning decks in this water area provide both shade and sun for people of all ages. Large lounge chairs, tables & chairs, umbrellas are provided for your leisurely days spent by the lazy river. Grills w/ tables are provided in the green areas as well as a walkway for strolling by the bay and marina. Free beach service is provided when you go to the ocean. A splash park, toddler pool, hot tub, and Destin West's largest pool and exercise facility are the additional amenities found on the beach side. You can easily access the beach side by walking the sky bridge from bay to beach.
Our condominium is centrally located between Destin and Fort Walton Beach on Okaloosa Island. We are five miles from Destin and one mile from Fort Walton Beach. You are in the middle of two of the best vacation cities in America. Not only do you have four miles of un-developed land on one side (free of mass crowds of people), but on the other side you have access to the Gulfarium, beachside restaurants and shops, fishing, water-sports, and more. Take your pick! Either side has the vacation you have been waiting for.
Not only is our location perfect and our condominium's new, but the view is unforgettable. Imagine an oasis of palm trees with cool, turquoise water running like ribbon (the lazy river) around gorgeous tropical landscaping. Lounge on our large porch and overlook sailboats floating by on the inner coastal waterway while watching the kids float by on the lazy river.
Close your eyes on our private patio and listen to the waterfall hit the water in the additional heated pool and you will think you are in a tropical paradise. Or enjoy the 5000 sq.foot pool, gym, and kiddy water playground at Destin West across the street. We also have internet access for those of you who need to connect for business. With so many features, how could you pass this up?

Disappointed with the cleanliness of the condo.
Master bathroom contained mold/mildew on the tiles leading into the tub and around the tub. The beds and pillows were uncomfortable and the bedding had a rough texture and was outdated. During our stay the atmosphere was very busy and loud.
I am sorry the condo was not up to the expectations of our guests. In noticing other reviews, among other things, the cleanliness of this condo is one item that is mentioned often. We have new furnishings in the living area and strive to keep the condo updated in decor.
While the tenants stated the "atmosphere was busy and loud", spring break season brings many children and families in and creates much busyness and more noise as families actively enjoy the amenities and beach. We do protect our tenants from excessive noise/partying by not renting to young people under 26 and we have Bayside Management who will address any tenant who does not comply with noise levels.
While pillows can be a very personal choice, we purchased more of a variety of firm and semi-firm pillows to better serve our guests in the future. A new master comforter is being ordered. The tile was re-grouted in areas of concern last week and cleaned. We hope our future tenants will please let us know during a stay if there are concerns we can take care of immediately.
Great place for the family
Perfect amount of space for our family of five. Only complaint would be that having more than one garbage bag in the kitchen would be nice.
We are so glad our guests felt this condo was a great space and place for their family of five. Comfort and convenience within the condo definitely includes having extra kitchen garbage bags for trash. This will be corrected, and we appreciate our guests' communication about this. (Our cleaning crew gets rave reviews on their cleanliness and thorough care. They will be concerned that this was missed, also. Excellence is important to them.)
Great Condo. Excellent bayside location.
From a high ranking retired military officer, we are so glad he felt his stay was outstanding and the condo great. As a long term tenant, his advice for continued high ratings gave us new insights for making our guests' vacations even more wonderful. Don't miss the great location of this condo!
Great rental for our large family
The unit was exceptionally clean and well taken care of. It was well decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Easy access to the lazy river and pools and a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Appliances were nice. Covered parking was nice benefit as well.
Perfect get away!
First time in the area. Liked the access to beach and bay side. Beautiful grounds. Very relaxing time to be there.
We're so glad you felt this was the "perfect getaway" and glad you were able to relax and restore! We agree--the bay/beach views and grounds at Destin West are enjoyable in their own right.
Hope you'll come again to relax and enjoy. Thank you for being such great tenants and for your wonderful review.

My wife and I and our 2 boys (9 and 5) had a blast! This condo and facilities are fantastic! My boys loved the lazy river and pools! The walk to the beach was easy and the beaches are private. Conveniently located near things to do and places to eat. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and are already talking about planning our next trip here next year! Thanks to Meredith for helping us and providing all the useful information beforehand!
We are thrilled that you had "a blast"....so glad you found the condo and facilities amazing. We feel they are, too. We pride ourselves in helping you have the best vacation that you can. Now--you and your family deserve a shout out for treating the condo as your own by repairing a louver that was damaged as well as leaving the condo in excellent condition. We so appreciate your care and communication throughout the rental process and stay....you are ideal guests. Thank you.
We look forward to your return next year!
