My husband and I purchased this condominium in 2004 to share with our children and grandchildren. Our grandchildren play for hours on the beach and we never get tired of the beautiful sunsets, sugar white sand and emerald green waters found in Destin, Florida.

This was truly a great place! Exactly what the pictures showed. It was a short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place! Very close to the beach and all the great places to walk to eat. We loved the chairs at the beach everyday waiting for us. I loved having a washer and drying in the condo! That came in handy. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great time at the beach!!

Wonderful Family Condo/Resort

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was absolutely amazing and worked perfectly for our family (4 Adults & 1 child). The view is wonderful, very relaxing, and we loved the top floor condo! The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. The condo was very roomy as well for our family, the splash pad was perfect for our little one, and the free beach service was great as well! I highly recommend this condo for a family or couple wanting a great beach location!

Amazing Views and Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Destin West is a lovely place!! We were on the top floor, beach side, but you can cross the skywalk and get to the bayside. I loved the pools and especially the lazy river! With this condo you got two beach chairs and an umbrella - nice! The balcony was refreshing to sit on and have coffee in the morning. The kitchen was well stocked and the TV was perfect - nice to have one in the bedroom as well. Washer and dryer were a great addition. I would definitely stay here again!

Floating Lazy river is very unique amenity that the entire family will enjoy. The Kid's splash park will make kids feel as if they were at a water park.
