This was our third visit to stay at Destin West Beach and Bay Resorts. The condo was very clean and nicely furnished. The décor was very tastefully done. The kitchen is very well stocked with anything and everything you might need or want. Crockpot to wine glasses!! This unit has two balconies and the views from both are spectacular. The walkway across the highway has made it very safe to cross over to the ocean side. There are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. The swimming pool, hot tubs and lazy river were very well maintained. The pool area was always very clean and inviting every day. We loved our month away in the sunshine and white sands of the ocean. Looking forward to our next stay.

  • 5 of 5

The skywalk made and easy access to the beach and the pool area is amazing! We loved the lazy river and were very pleased with our overall stay! If you take the skywalk and go across the street there are four restaurants that I would highly recommend! They are so close and they are so yummy! They also have sitting on the beach side so you can enjoy the wonderful of you while you eat! The Hudson’s were amazing throughout this whole process and the answer to any and all questions very quickly!

Great views, central location

  • 4 of 5

We rented Pelican 508 for the month of February, 2018. We loved the view from the north balcony overlooking the lazy river and palm trees, and the bay. The second balcony faces south with a view over busy Miracle Strip Pkwy and the Gulf of Mexico.

The condo was well equipped for cooking, has new, clean furniture and most importantly a comfortable bed, good WiFi and TV’s, and a brand new washer and dryer, just installed.

If we had any problems or concerns, the condo owner, Linn, was always easy to contact and quick to respond. He takes good care of his renters.

The location of the condo complex is approximately half way between Pensacola and Panama City. We found this convenient to explore and visit the many attractions in the area, besides enjoying the lazy river, pools, and Gulf beach that are part of the Destin West Beach & Bay Resort.

If you enjoy nature, there is a small natural area located behind and between Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone and the Emerald Coast Convention Center that you shouldn’t miss. You can walk there in less than 10 minutes from the Resort. There is a boardwalk leading from the northeast corner of the Convention Center parking lot into this gem of nature which is now a Great Blue Heron Rookery.

Beautiful & Peaceful Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we've rented a condo at Destin West Resort from this owner. Our family had such a memorable and fun vacation last year that we decided to make it a tradition. The owner has decorated with a beautiful coastal theme and the condo is fully stocked with kitchen supplies and a beach cart with chairs (bring your own beach umbrella if you want it.) All of the directions regarding the check-in/check-out and care of the condo are very clear and it's easy to communicate with the owner. There is so much to do at this resort that my kids actually ask to go to bed early because they are tired out! We hope to return next year and stay at the same place. Love it!
