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 am so glad that everything was so pleasing to you. I really hope that for every guest we have and it's always nice to hear :)) Thank you for being so easy to work with as well. I do hope you WILL return later this year. We'd love to have you again. Thank you! Shelley & Sondra

One of the Best Condo Rentals

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Unit 502 many times, and always love returning. The owner provides much more conveniences than most rentals (liquid hand soap at every sink, dish and washer soaps, several trash bags, hair dryer, etc.). Can't beat the views from the condo and balcony too!

Best condo at Destin West gulf side

  • 5 of 5

Room 502 has the best views! We very much enjoyed our stay there and will use this condo again! The kitchen had everything we needed, there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows and everything was very clean when we arrived. The only thing lacking was the dresser and drawer space in the 2nd bedroom with the queen bed. Shelley always responded quickly if we had any questions and she was easy to schedule with!

Owner's Response: Hey Carolyn, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in the condo. Yes, it does have amazing views being one of the few corner condos at Destin West. The sunsets are amazing looking out towards the pier. You also get a great breeze with the wrap around balcony. Thank you for the suggestion about the 2nd bedroom. We do have an armoire that has 2 long drawers for your clothes at the bottom. But you are correct. It is not a dresser. I'll look into that this winter. I appreciate your feedback! Thank you again for choosing our condo and I hope you will return again sometime! Sincerely, Shelley

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!!

I am so glad we could help in making everything as smooth as possible and that you had a great time. I appreciate your kind review and I hope you will return sooner than later! Thanks again!
