About Danny Tillman

I have graduated from Sulphur High and lived in Louisiana my whole life.

Danny Tillman purchased this villa in 2014

Why Danny Tillman chose Okaloosa Island

My wife and I have been traveling to Fort Walton and Destin for over 25 years. This past Memorial Day we stayed at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. We love the idea that everything is right here close to the property and is just a few steps away.

What makes this villa unique

We love the Villa, it feels like home. Having a place on the beach has always been my wife's dream.

Repeat Customer!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed in this unit for the second year in a row. Nothing disappointed. It's the perfect space for two people. The balcony is relaxing. We appreciate that music channels are included in the television selection, too! Once again, I was able to do some laundry, which lightened the load later at home. Destin West is in a great location and provides the very convenient skywalk across the highway. In addition to loving the condo, we appreciate the ease of working with the owners. They have been prompt and congenial! I heartily recommend staying here!

Perfect unit

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute weekend getaway for our family. The owners were great to work with. My family and I really enjoyed our stay. The condo was at the perfect location between the gulf side and the bay side. It was very clean. Our kids enjoyed all the different pools. Destin West Resort staff was very friendly. When we plan another beach vacation this will be my first choice for a condo.

Extremely pleased

  • 5 of 5

This unit was perfect for two people to relax on the beach for a few days. We love the location of Destin West (perfect for a morning jog down the Island and a beach walk back or walking to local restaurants!). We enjoyed the pools and the fitness room. This particular unit is in a convenient location next to the skywalk to the bay side. I was very happy to have the washer/dryer. It prevented having a huge pile of laundry at home! I would love to stay here again.
