Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough about Destin West 502. Shelly was so easy to work with. We received all the information we needed for directions, parking, key access and even recommendations on places to eat and things to do. It was everything the owner said it would be. Well appointed, comfortable, right on the beach and exceptionally clean. The property was equally as nice and the views were magnificent. I would not hesitate to rebook this unit in fact we would love to go back later this year. 5 star rating because VRBO doesn't have a 6 star rating.

I do hope you WILL return later this year. We'd love to have you again. Thank you! Shelley & Sondra

Vacation Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the condo! Gorgeous view and such a beautiful unit! It was my VERY favorite vacation ever!! We have stayed at Destin West before, but Shelley's condo was truly a first-class experience... everything was perfect! Our trip was a high school graduation gift to my daughter from me, and it's certainly time we will cherish forever! From the ease of making the reservation and payments, the incredible view, free beach service, family-friendly environment, to the amazing condo interior, our trip was indeed heaven on earth! Again, everything was perfect... Thank you so much!!

Lovely Condo with Breezy Balcony and Emerald Coast View

  • 5 of 5

This condo set the stage for a wonderful beach stay as soon as we entered...beautifully decorated .. cottage beach style with lovely, light colors. The unit smelled fresh and was so clean. Kitchen and baths were thoroughly furnished to make the stay like home. Each bedroom had a beauty and serenity of its own with adequate storage for vacation clothes/gear. We loved the breezy balcony where we could adjust our seating for sun/shade/meal throughout the day while watching waves, sunsets or dolphins. Felt like you were right on top of the sand dunes ! The sofa and chairs were sooo comfortable for napping or movie watching---thank you for providing that extra bonus. Enjoyed the helpful info notebook of places to go, things to do. We hope to return to this special condo for another spectacular stay!

Very clean and bigger than I thought

  • 5 of 5

Unit was very clean and more spacious than I thought it would be. Location is great being ocean front. Shelly was great and texted me recommendations throughout the week when I was asking questions. I left my I pad and texted her after we left. She is sending it in the mail. Great experience.

Amazing sunrises & sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay at this gulf front condo was great. The view is beyond magnificent! The condo was very well equipped ( even though with all of the places to eat in the area we never cooked😊) Our only complaint was the master bed. Mattress is so soft & sags so we suffered from backaches. That is the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and I am truly sorry about the bed! I noticed after your departure that the Icomfort Serta Box Springs were defective and had begun to sag on one side, causing the bed to not have needed support. That defective box springs has been replaced so the bed is once again comfortable. I hate you didn't let me know the first night you experienced discomfort so I could have taken care of the problem. It is my utmost desire that all guests have enjoyable and comfortable stay.
