About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hello and welcome to our colorful condo!

Our peaceful and inviting nautical condominium is perfect for an amazing beach vacation. With a great location on the surreal Emerald Coast, a 700 foot Lazy River, you are sure to come back year after year. This unit is a groundfloor unit/lanai where guests can sun or step outside the gate into the lazy river with a gorgeous bayside backdrop. The waterfall pool, gradual entry pool, and two large hot tubs provide a variety of activities for water lovers. The patio/sunning decks in this water area provide both shade and sun for people of all ages. Large lounge chairs, tables & chairs, umbrellas are provided for your leisurely days spent by the lazy river. Grills w/ tables are provided in the green areas as well as a walkway for strolling by the bay and marina. Free beach service is provided when you go to the ocean. A splash park, toddler pool, hot tub, and Destin West's largest pool and exercise facility are the additional amenities found on the beach side. You can easily access the beach side by walking the sky bridge from bay to beach.

LOCATION:

Our condominium is centrally located between Destin and Fort Walton Beach on Okaloosa Island. We are five miles from Destin and one mile from Fort Walton Beach. You are in the middle of two of the best vacation cities in America. Not only do you have four miles of un-developed land on one side (free of mass crowds of people), but on the other side you have access to the Gulfarium, beachside restaurants and shops, fishing, water-sports, and more. Take your pick! Either side has the vacation you have been waiting for.

FEATURES:

Not only is our location perfect and our condominium's new, but the view is unforgettable. Imagine an oasis of palm trees with cool, turquoise water running like ribbon (the lazy river) around gorgeous tropical landscaping. Lounge on our large porch and overlook sailboats floating by on the inner coastal waterway while watching the kids float by on the lazy river.

BAYSIDE POOLS:

Close your eyes on our private patio and listen to the waterfall hit the water in the additional heated pool and you will think you are in a tropical paradise. Or enjoy the 5000 sq.foot pool, gym, and kiddy water playground at Destin West across the street. We also have internet access for those of you who need to connect for business. With so many features, how could you pass this up?

Very comfortable and cozy "home" feeling. Calm and relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

The first impression was great, cool AC to escape the summer weather, fresh new home smell, carpet was cozily inviting shoe removal, while cleanliness eased my mind. The first impression was not the last of our great stay. Pool was not over exaggerated. It was better than expressed with the slow, calm, lazy river. For those who have not stayed, it was 10x better being on this first floor than any other floor I could imagine. Our back yard is the pool, just as the picture shows. You walk out and can jump right in. With others having to use the elevators, stairs, longer walks, this was certainly a prized location. If you have kids, they will enjoy this as will you. Also, strangely enough, this is also the closest to your parking spot, out the front door, I could look over the ledge and see our vehicle. Hard to beat condo in a hard to be resort. From 15 years experience visiting Destin, this is my new favorite location.

A relaxing retreat!

  • 4 of 5

The lazy river was the highlight for my 9 & 7 year old boys. Great location, literally right off the back patio. The walk to the beach is 7 minutes. The chairs and umbrella are a nice bonus, however, if the beach attendant isn't around, just grab a non-reserved spot.

Perfect for a family of 4. Has all of the amenities you would want.

The only negative is the internet stinks. It went out everyday, for at least 45 minutes, the tv is hooked up to wifi so if you are watching a show, expect it to go out. We didn't watch too much tv, but we were watching the Cavs in the playoffs and it went out in the middle of the game.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that the lazy river was the highlight for the boys and was super convenient from the lanai patio.. Glad the beach umbellas/chairs made their beach visits so comfortable--great idea to grab a non-reserved spot! We appreciate this most positive review about amenities and the condo itself. We apologize for the WIFI/cable problem! That is not acceptable. Had we known, we could have had the problem corrected. We so appreciate tenants like you and look forward to serving you again.

Excellent experience!!!! Condo was beautiful in perfect location on second floor. All of the pools, splash pads, and hot tubs were an asset to staying here. My kids were able to walk right off condo patio and directly into the lazy river, which they absolutely loved. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just as depicted. It was spacious, clean and beautiful. My family has stayed at this resort before and this rental was our favorite. We enjoyed the patio and lazy river with easy access. The beach service with umbrella & chairs was a bonus our family got to enjoy as well! We look forward to our future vacations here and would definitely stay here again!
