Great condo.

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd stay in this condo and once again it did not disappoint. Its where I want it to be, right by the lazy river with a short walk to the beach. Everything was clean and well taken care of. When you close the doors at night you don't hear any of the noise coming from the 1st floor condo and their parties. I will always stay in this condo when I come to Ft. Walton

Awesome place

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at destin west heron 408. The space was very accommodating for my family of five. The owners were very helpful and assisted us with all our needs and requests. Not to mention the beds are super comfortable, the beach was beautiful and fishing in the area was great

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and that your family was comfortable and enjoyed fishing while you vacationed. There is so much outdoor activities to do with property located on both the Gulf of Mexico and Chattahoochee bay.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was great!! The ocean was pretty nasty due to June grass and recent storms but that didn't stop us from having a great time at the pool. My family had a great time using the lazy river and the other pools. We have 5 kids ranging 11-16 and they all enjoyed the stay. The room was very spacious and located in a great spot! We will definitely look at booking here again in the future.

Really nice condo!

We lived on the balcony. Only thing to make this visit better would be if you could try to have more sunny days for our next visit? 😜�
