The Destin West Resort offers everything you need for a beach vacation. The beach is only steps away, the pools and lazy river are amazing, and the location is unbeatable.
It was great to be back again so soon! The seafood festival was a blast. Our favorite breakfast spot is The Donut Hole, but get there early. Thanks for everything and we look forward to staying agaim soon.
We stayed in the condo for five days last week. Pros: walking distance to many activities and the beach. The resort pools are quiet and clean. Access to the Ramada was an advantage as it gave more space to walk. The splash park was a huge hit. Close parking to the room with easy access. Balcony was large and views of the ocean were spectacular.
Cons: Extremely hard to open and close the balcony door. There is a metal shade stop along the bottom of the balcony that could be tripped over easily. Stubbing a toe was a daily occurrence. The vertical blinds only opened hallway. Appliances were very dingy. The blender was broken so had to buy our own. There was so much sand in the bed. I had to buy a throw blanket to put over the sheets.
We made a last minute decision to go to Destin West to meet some friends and I was scrambling to find a decent condo. I am glad I found this one, but the owners were great! They were so helpful in every way. As for the condo, it was adorable. They have really put some personal touches in this condo and made it feel like home. My boys loved the Wii as well. We will be back!
This condo was perfect for our family. We were midway between the beach and the lazy river. Both walking distance away which is great since we have young kids. The condo itself was very nice and clean. Lots of towels to use too! Plenty of amenities that we didn't use but definitely great for a rainy day! The owners are also very responsive. I had no problems booking with them.
Had a great week at the condo! The condo had all the comforts of home even down to beach towels and toys. Especially loved the porch and the close parking in the parking garage (kept the car close and cool). The condo was clean and nicely furnished. The set up is efficiency style so once the couch is opened for the kids your only sitting space is the bedroom but for the price it was perfect for us, besides we really didn't spend that much time inside and when we did we were ready for some sleep! The only negative was it could use more dresser space so things can be put away. The resort itself is so large with so many things to do. Even with the rainy days you could swim in the covered heated pool. The lazy river was a favorite for the boys (age 8 and 15) and we visited all the pools and kids waterworks area. We even took a walk in the water of the bay. My husband and I really liked the fitness room, it had everything you would need and more. It was so nice to be within walking distance to the boardwalk. We ate dinner there 4 nights and would recommend all the restaurants there but we liked Floyds the best. Angelle was so great to work with and communication was fabulous. This was our first time dealing an actual owner rather than a rental company and it is so much better! I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to have a great vacation, at a great price, in a great location and great owners!
My wife, daughter, son-in-law, and myself enjoyed our stay tremendously. The condo was well portrayed in the HomeAway listing and the correspondence with the owner confirmed it all. Upon our arrival, we found that our entrance pass code would not work. This problem was quickly and efficiently taken care of. The inside of the condo was spotless and very inviting. The balcony view was breathtaking to say the least. We enjoyed the outlet mall, the Irish Pub in Destin, Howl at the Moon and oh yes the Lazy River. This was so relaxing especially because the temperature the week we stayed was near 100 degrees. We would absolutely recommend this condo to our friends. We look forward to staying again in the near future.
