You've spent a lot of time seeking out just the right place to call “home” for vacation. We understand. Because we do it, too. And it's true what they say about the early birds snatching up the one you were hoping for. It's why you're doing this search right now. When it comes to that well-earned reprieve … that priceless, true downtime … wouldn't it feel good to do something really special this time around for the people you care about … including yourself? Something unexpected, even … in the absolute best kind of way? From the Kurig coffeemaker that greets you every morning with a steaming cup of perfection, to the Smart TV's in every room (hey, even if you never turn one on, it's nice to know they're there), to the bubbling rooftop hot tub that wraps you in warmth under the stars at the end of the day, to the personal outdoor kitchen where fresh fish and kabobs sizzle on the grill. At Paradise Found (officially Heron PH-09 … and a covetable end unit, to boot), with its stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico, Choctawhatchee Bay, and Okaloosa Island, you'll know immediately that you'll never again be able to settle for anything less for so little more.


Celebrity or not, we can almost promise that, at the very least, every guest who enters here will FEEL like one. Our spacious, comfy, stylish end unit penthouse in the prime location of Destin West Resort, a beautiful sight day and night – with its 700-foot Lazy River, swaying palms, sugar-sand beaches and cool sea breezes – just plain dazzles the senses. Vacations come and vacations go. But here at Paradise Found, vistas of heaven are found around virtually every corner, which is why it's so idyllic for creating memories to last a lifetime … from meals shared in the comfort of your oversized balcony which, thanks to the builder's ingenious idea of staggered patios is remarkably intimate, to the spiral staircase that leads up to your own private rooftop terrace where you can pour a glass of bubbly, slip into your six person Jacuzzi and watch the clouds go by. How divine! With space and views this amazing, everyone will feel like a celebrity. Just bring your designer sunglasses, swimsuits and flip flops and prepare to vacay like the star you are!


Go ahead and pinch yourself … it's all very real. While Paradise Found's breathtaking exterior spaces will most certainly provide plenty of excuses to avoid retreating indoors, we promise that you won't be disappointed when you do. With 1576 square feet of stylishly decorated luxuriousness, our penthouse's interior is so inviting, so ample, even rainy days are delightful. Tastefully furnished in warm, earthy tones that echo sea and sky, and tiled throughout (except for the bedrooms, which are carpeted for luxury underfoot) Paradise Found embraces you with welcoming space, light and views that captivate and soothe from the minute you step inside.

The master suite houses a chic, distressed wood, king sized bed all decked out in premium linens and with a premium mattress for that all important great night's sleep. Getting ready for dinner out is a breeze in the adjoining master bath with double vanities, separate shower and a sumptuous Jacuzzi tub. The tastefully appointed guestrooms (one with its own private balcony, no less) continue the theme of five-star elegance with queen beds dressed in premium linens and mattresses as well, ensuring that every guest receives that celebrity-style pampering that is truly “Paradise Found.” A queen pull-out sofa bed in the living room and an additional queen blowup mattress, should you need it, are perfect for kids and teens, allowing Paradise Found to accommodate eight guests with more than ample space for all.

Upgrades galore, from the Smart TV's in every room, to the full-sized washer and dryer, to the beautiful 90” distressed wood dining table (with seating for eight!), to a kitchen so well-equipped you'd half expect Rachael Ray to walk on set ... with granite counters & stainless appliances (including side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice, ultra-quiet dishwasher, Ninja blender and an over-the-range microwave … whew! … need we go on? ;) makes everything from getting ready for a night on the town to enjoying your morning smoothie, as effortless as effortless can be! And, of course, free wireless internet lets you post your vacay photos for all your friends and family to envy. ;)


The resort's list of amenities is almost embarrassing, they're so luxurious. With offerings like a 5,000 square-foot swimming pool, kid-friendly zero-entry (aka beach) pool, two giant Jacuzzis, winter-heated waterfall pool, and the region's largest lazy river, you'll have to be very intentional to have anything less than a perfect day. Meander across the resort's private footbridge, and you're on a pristine, white-sand beach along the Gulf of Mexico's Choctawhatchee Bay. Rent boogie boards, sea kayaks, or jet skis; sign the kids up for resort activities; and sweat off Florida's epicurean delights in the state-of-the-art fitness center.

As if that weren't enough, Destin West is walking distance to a slew of activities the likes of which you won't find anywhere else. The Boardwalk and fishing pier, Fudpuckers, The Gulfarium, and The Ramada Palaza are all a short walk from the Resort. As a guest with us, you always have full access to all of the amenities at the Ramada Plaza Resort, including the famous Grotto Pool with swim-up bar. Or, if you prefer to go exploring, Okaloosa Island offers miles of Gulf and Bay beaches that are perfect for outdoor adventures.

Yes, without a doubt, Destin West Resort is one of the most family-friendly, well serviced, and upscale locales on the island. Ready to book it now? Weeks fill up quickly … consider yourself forewarned. ;)


We know your cherished vacation time is precious to you. And we want to do everything we can to ensure your memories are as close to perfect as this side of heaven can be. So, if you're wondering whether Paradise Found (Heron PH–09) is a good match for you, let us help. At Coastal Vibe Vacations, we believe every guest we serve has the right to a personalized vacation that's tailored to their needs and wish lists. Every guest! Every time!

With that in mind, Paradise Found is well suited for:

• Large or Multigenerational Families: Traveling with a few kids, tweens or teens … or as a multigenerational group? With 3 bedrooms, a pull-out sofabed and a queen blow up mattress, there's plenty of space for everyone.

• Couples or Small Families Traveling Together: If you've teamed up with another family for your vacation, consider assigning the couples their own private suites and letting the kids take the third bedroom and sofabed.

• Vacationers Who Love Views: It doesn't get much better than our incredible Choctawhatchee Bay and pool/Lazy River views!

• Lovers of Luxury: If you love vacationing in the lap of luxury, you'll feel right at home in the penthouse, with its private rooftop hot tub and grilling station.

• Holiday Revelers: Our condo is perfect for holiday celebrations, especially Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's.

AMAZING condo! Gorgeous views and amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Destin West is a great place to stay. It caters to all ages and has something for everyone. Our family loves it so much we can back every year. This particular condo made the trip even better. Having access to our own hot tub and gas grill was a huge bonus. The children enjoyed the hot tub and watching movies underneath the stars while we grilled our dinner and admired the amazing views from the penthouse deck. I don't even think that it was in the description that there was a TV on the penthouse deck. The kids thought that was really cool. The 6 of us loved the location of the condo as well. You could see the bay as well as the gulf from all rooms. Due to the fact that it is an end unit- it was more private, and had more windows. Bright and cheery! The pools are AMAZING! The beach is gorgeous and isn't too bad of a walk across the bridge. An excellent place to stay!!

Amazing experience in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo and location! All the amenities of home and then some! The condo is thoughtfully furnished throughout. The kitchen had every accessory imaginable for us from measuring spoons to a crockpot and a Ninja blender! There was also a beach buggy equipped with beach chairs, toys for the little ones to use at the beach, cushions for all of the chairs. A beautiful condo with a great view - cannot say enough good about this unit! You will not be disappointed to stay and Coastal Vibe Vacations is a very professional and highly responsive company to work with. We will definitely be back for future vacations!

This condo is everything it claims to be and more.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier with our condo. Loved the rooftop hot tub and grill. The pools & lazy river were awesome, not sure who enjoyed them more the kiddo or my Mother in law. The condo was much more spacious than it appeared to be in pictures. Beds were very comfortable, Carts were great to bring up bags and groceries.

David was a joy to work with.

Destin West Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this exact unit, so that should say something for the unit and the owner.

We traveled here for our Daughter's spring break softball tournament. The team at Coastal Vibe Vacations is amazing. They are incredibly timely and knowledgable about the unit and the area. They even include a list of things to do and special places to get great deals on fun vacation activities.

The unit itself is spacious, well decorated and perfect for our family of five that visited. Their maintenance of the space is amazing. The unit looked even better than the first time we stayed here. Great job crew!

My son, loved the addition of the XBox One to the unit. After a long day at the pool/beach, relaxing in the rooftop hot tub, he was able to unwind for the night by playing some games. He said it was like being at home but better.

Give this unit a try, I promise you won't be disappointed.
