GOT KIDS? (OR STILL ONE AT HEART?) OUR LANAI CONDO, STEPS FROM THE LAZY RIVER, DELIVERS HOURS OF DOWNTIME... DOWNSTREAM TIME, THAT IS!
Surfing the net... or tubing down the Lazy River? Hm-m-m. That's a choice the kids will just have to make. And while we can't guarantee it, booking this lanai-level condo may cause your kids to abandon their electronic devices altogether. (Well, for the week, anyway. ;) What we CAN pretty much guarantee is that boredom won't set in. Perched mere steps from the Lazy River, Pelican L-06 is one of those rare, kid-friendly, adult sanity-saving vacay spots that fills the bill for everyone. For the grownups, there's the two huge private balconies so perfect for afternoon Happy Hour, you'll be thankful for the short walk back inside for snacks... or, if the mood should strike you, to the Tropical pool Oasis for a quick dip. For the kids (and kids-at-heart) the Piece de resistance... a continually flowing, 700-foot long tuber's dream columned on both sides by swaying palms and sweeping bay views... is literally steps from your lanai. And - ta-da! - magically lights up at night!
YOU + THE KIDS + OUR LANAI CONDO ON THE LAZY RIVER = SERENITY
Family is important to you. We get it. It's why you spend so much time online in search of just the right place to take your kids. We know, because we've done the same thing. You love 'em, but you also know that too much togetherness can drain the fun right out of that prized week off. We don't blame you in the least if you're on a mission to find a place where the only whining you'll encounter is the kind that goes with "dining." Let's face it... kid, or kid at heart, it's frankly hard NOT to have an awesome day settled into a donut shaped pillow floating on a winding, free flowing 700 foot long river while the grownups sip wine (hey, it's five o'clock somewhere!) and watch from the comfort of their own private balcony.
OUTDOORS OR IN, THE "FAMILY FRIENDLY" VIBE KEEPS A SMILE ON EVERYONES' FACES
When you're ready to retreat to the indoors, you'll be wrapped in welcoming, homey coziness - tastefully African jungle-themed - tiled throughout, except for the bedrooms, of course, and with ample, well-planned space and privacy for adults and kids alike. The master suite houses an elegant four-poster, king sized bed dressed in premium linens and with a premium mattress to bring it all home. Getting ready for a night on the town is a breeze in the adjoining master bath in beachy shades of sand punctuated with red accents to match the bed.
The kids' bunkroom is designed to bring on sweet sleep at the end of a very full day. Tucked away from the adult space, with a door for privacy, its own bathroom and twin bunks covered in soft, luxurious bedding (we recommend flipping a coin to see who gets the top :), this little sanctuary keeps kids and adults just close enough for comfort, but without sacrificing privacy.
The living room offers a queen sleeper sofa (the condo sleeps six guests comfortably), DVD player and a large TV for family movie night. Free wireless internet lets you post your vaycay photos for all your friends and family to envy. A fully equipped kitchen (should you actually feel inclined to cook) features a side-by side refrigerator equipped with water and ice, dishwasher, oven with smooth top range and a built in microwave (for microwave popcorn... and meals... yes, vacation is all about ease). A coffee maker, toaster and blender round out our well-appointed kitchen, so you can enjoy your morning smoothies with coffee and a bagel. We didn't forget the washer and dryer, either. Hey, it's less to pack... just bring your swimsuits and flip flops. Linens are provided.
COME FOR THE LAZY RIVER. COME FOR THE PRISTINE BEACH. COME FOR THE AWESOME MEMORIES. WHATEVER THE REASON... YOU'LL BE BACK.
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. ;)

Stayed for nearly a month. Multiple bedrooms and living space was great for family. My 12 and 10 yr old boys loved the jacuzzi and playing at the beach. We all loved the access to the boardwalk. There was fun for everyone. The resort was clean and well kept. I recommended immediately to another coworker.
My husband and our kiddos (ages 5 and 2) loved our stay! Kids LOVED the pool and lazy river. Husband loved the gas grill for cooking. Short walk to beach was easy especially with the beach cart provided. Owner was super friendly and accommodating with all of my questions. Thanks again!
We had a great stay at Pelican 06. Very well furnished with a great patio area and just steps to the lazy river!!
We arrived to a dirty condo, floors not swept or vacuumed, sheets not changed and fifthly to say the least! Glass table top was nasty. Condo only had 3 forks so we had to buy more since there was 5 of us. The patio furniture needed new padding to be able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view. The other chairs were broke per husband that was beside the grill. There were light bulbs that needed changed and they knew previously. Once we got past all this there are a few positives about this condo. You can walk out the gate directly to the pool area. They provide you a cart with beach chairs/umbrellas for going to the beach.
After doing lots of research(Trip Advisor and I were good friend!s),I booked this unit. I was SO HAPPY with my choice!!!!! Location is awesome. You can walk almost everywhere. Water sports are right next door. Fireworks across the street at beach. Restaurants(many) in walking distance. Ramada Inn grotto pool worth checking out too(you can use with these pool bands). We also loved being steps from the lazy river. Our kids ages 10 and 11 swam nightly. Tons of kids at condo so they always had friends. They loved colored Led lights too. We grilled out several nights. Condo itself great .A "10" for kids and teens! Very convenient unit near the elevator. We also liked the bay activities, and our kids caught hermit crabs right beyond the pool areas. We rented jet ski next door for an hour rental..,we came to condo bayside steps and rotated out kids! Our family favorite activity was the "Cattiewampus" at Fudpucker's next door. A dolphin cruise and snorkeling trip. Captain made it a "party boat" and our kids wanted to do it again so we did! Hermit crab races,hula hoops,water gun fights,etc. Again,we walked to all this! Rent this condo. The location is worth it alone. Lazy river and amenities very very wonderful. We will rent it again! Cheers!
Loved this condo but more importantly LOVED the view from the Lanai. Very clean and great use of space. The grill on the patio was so convenient and kept the dinner mess to a minimum in the kitchen. Less mess, more time for fun. Very impressed with the owner of this condo, David Jenn. He is a professional who cares. Makes a big difference when vacations are so few and far between.
