Our lovely condo is on the 5th floor (#502) of 6-story building directly on the Gulf of Mexico; 1 of only 10 Gulf-front units available at the Destin West Complex.

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.

Owner's Response: Hey Bud, You are so sweet! WOW, thank you so much for your "6 star" review! I love that you had such a magnificent time in this condo and at Destin West.

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

Best Family Christmas Ever!

  • 5 of 5

For the first time ever my Mom & Stepfather were going to have all 3 kids complete with spouses & grandchildren visiting over Christmas. We usually stay with them, but their house was going to be overflowing! I thought it would be a great idea to rent a condo on the Gulf as a 2nd location for all to enjoy (and for my husband & I to have some quiet time). Things turned out even better than I could have hoped.

The condo is beautiful and comfortable, and the view is nothing short of spectacular. I grew up in Destin and no matter where I go I miss the sight, sound and smell of the Gulf. Being able to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves offered the most stress relief anyone could want. The condo was also well-stocked and proved to be a wonderful gathering place for any mix of family members. We had Christmas there with my family, my brother's young family & my Dad - and a game night New Year's Eve party with my Mom.

The process was smooth and easy for check in and check out and we found the price very reasonable for the amazing time we had. I recommend entirely!

Our 25th anniversary was wonderful in your unit.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in this beautiful condo. We have stayed in one of the end units at least 12 times over the years and we love all of them. We love the laid-back nature of the Okaloosa Island area and its close proximity to Fort Walton Beach and Destin. Overall it was a wonderful stay as usual and we will be back again for the 13th stay!

Beach Time

This is the 3rd year we have stayed at this condo and as usual everything was fantastic. The condo is clean and well furnished. We love the view and we are just steps from the beach. Shelley and Sondra have been great to work with !

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

I vacation in destin/ft Walton area every summer. It can be stressful choosing a place to stay as sometimes pictures are deceiving. This unit was exactly as pictured. Very clean and nice. We loved all of the amenities available to us. Shelley was very responsive to any questions I had. We plan on staying here next year!

Great Beachside condo

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped condo with great view and amenities. Convenient to everything. Only issue we had was with beach service so not really a property problem . We had to ask for a set up everyday and never knew where we would be. Usually put us at far end in front of Ramada because all closers spots were taken. We checked in with them when we arrived and told them we'd be here for 7 days. First day was no problem after that we had to search for our chairs everyday and on most days never found it or was told we were not on the list.
