About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


Looking for a little beach therapy for the whole family? Hold on to your sunglasses: This bright, cheerfully decorated condo is the whole beach ball: fun and convenient, with a killer ground-floor gulfside location!

Being on the first floor means you can flip-flop right out your door onto the beach - no more waiting on the elevator.

An enormous private patio (exclusive to first-floor units) means that the indoors flows into the outdoors, where you'll enjoy picturesque views of the Palm-tree-lined pool. Keeping an eye on the kids is a breeze - just sit on the patio and watch them swim.

Bonus: You can keep all of your beach and pool gear stored for quick and easy use - no more dragging dripping pool noodles through the unit.


Toss a football or fly a kite on the wide sugar-white sand beach. Walk to the fishing pier, the Gulfarium, or many shops, restaurants, and activities at the Boardwalk. Take just a few steps through the protected seaside dunes and feel the surf splash at your ankles. Turn left at the ocean and quickly enter a 3.5 mile stretch of undeveloped land and empty beach… this pristine wildlife preserve is perfect for that morning stroll down the beach.

The pool area at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is second to none, and the largest pool - 5000 square feet - is just a few steps from your patio! The kiddos will also have a blast at the nearby Splash Playground. Or you can use the Skybridge to access the Bayside amenities and wade into the zero-entry pool or catch a leisurely ride on the 700 ft lazy river, where you'll enjoy the rush of the nearby waterfall feature.

Just a few miles away you'll find Destin's harbor, where you can choose from special trips like charter boat fishing, dolphin cruises, sunset sailing, or just grab a bite to eat or do some shopping while watching the sunset.

Also less than 10 miles from the airport and 1 mile from the grocery store.

About David Jenn

We are Coastal Vibe Vacations, a small property management company that has 50 properties and we look to serve you. We've owned & managed properties on Okaloosa Island for 14 years now. We love Okaloosa Island with a passion - a passion we promise we'll use to help you plan the vacation of your dreams. We look forward to connecting with you and hosting you for your future vacation.

Why David Jenn chose Fort Walton Beach

We love the uncrowded beach, the large pool and the lazy river. It is so easy to get to the heart of Destin but you do not have to deal with the traffic headaches for short trips to the grocery store.

What makes this condo unique

We try to make both our units as nice as possible so that any one who stays in them will always request our unit on a return visit. We include the beach service with each rental and are continually upgrading the units. There are flat screen HDTVs in each unit and the kitchen has every amenity you would expect at home. They are both decorated in a tropical decor reminiscent of our favorite entertainer, Jimmy Buffett

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a week! This is our second year at the Destin West and we will keep coming back! Last year we stayed on the Bayside and it was beautiful. We weren't sure about using a different unit, but we are so glad we did! The ease of walking to the beach and back to the room anytime we wanted was wonderful. Thanks for sharing your place with us

Most convenient condo we've ever stayed in at Destin Beach & Bay

  • 5 of 5

My grandmother, mother, daughter, and myself stayed here for our annual Mother's Day trip in may. The condo was bright, well appointed, and so convenient to the beach and pool. The beds were decently comfortable but a memory foam topper wouldn't be a bad investment. TV in every bedroom, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of bath towels and extra pillows/linens. All in all very comfortable. David and his sister were wonderful to work with and always quick to respond- check in and check out were also a breeze. My grandmother appreciated being on the ground level, right off the pool and right next to the beach since it meant less stairs/steps for her. The free beach service was a huge convenience as well since it meant less to carry to the sand every day! My daughter loved being able to swim right beside our patio first thing in the morning while I packed up for the beach and Grans had their coffee. The beach toys that she found in the closet were a huge hit too! We added even more to the stash before we left. She also had a great time at the splash park- it was a great way for her to run out energy when we were all ready to sit and relax. The lazy river on the bay side was a blast for everyone as well. We walked the beach to dinner every night- Rockin Taco, Crab Trap, Floyds, Black Pearl, Als Burgers, and Anglers are all a short jot, with fudpuckers just across the street. My toddler and grandmother had no trouble making the journey every day. My mom and I enjoyed drinks at the cabana bar every day during nap time and had delicious appetizers on the pier at Anglers. This condo really is perfectly located to so many things and the grounds of Destin Beach Bay are some of the best on the gulf. We are planning on booking this condo again for next year!!

Owner's Response: Hi Cassie. Thanks so much for giving us a 5 star review. We are so excited to hear you had such a great stay =) I will say the condo is in a perfect location and really is ideal for our older family members to get around safely without having to walk up a bunch of stairs. The beach and pool are a perfect way to relax and even enjoy a beverage or two as well. We would love to have you come back and stay again soon. From our family to yours ~ David and Lisa

Loved every minute!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect. Ocean, pool, lazy river.... We loved it all!!

Nice to be in walking distance to so many restaurants and activities.

Our condo had everything we needed. Loved being on ground floor and walking out to pool area. Great for the kids! Less hassle for me. Keyless entry door system was great also... No keeping up with keys. We will definitely be back.
