“Almost Like Home”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2013

Stayed in this unit for the month of December. I can honestly say that my family didn't want to leave. It was almost like being at home. Gerise was wonderful to work with. I will recommend this unit to all my friends. We had to move to another unit because our stay had to be extended, and we didn't want to leave Destin West, so I rented in the same building. I can't say enough of this place and of this unit, and this is coming from a local.

“Great space, great place”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2012

As a family of five with three teenagers, we treasure family vacations. But hotel rooms are tight quarters. This condo was perfect -- twin beds for the girls, a queen for our son and a spacious master for us. Finishes are beautiful. Access to the Gulf beaches are convenient, and the pools and lazy river are warm and well maintained. We had a great time and highly recommend this property!

“Son's Wedding”

Reviewed 18 May 2012

We really enjoyed staying at Destin West while in Ft. Walton Beach for my son's wedding. Everything was so clean and nice and very homey. We will definitely be coming back for a vacation.

Check-in was timely and the condo was really nice for our two families (5 adults/3 children). We were in room 508 overlooking the Bay and the Lazy River. The children really enjoyed the lazy river. They probably spend 4-6 hours in it each day we were their. The over pass bridge was great as highway 98 is very busy and hard the cross. The sand beach was very clean (no oil) and only a short walk to several eaterys and the fishing bridge. The kids loved fishing and the rates were reasonable. There were many options for extra things the do, golfing, snorkeling, wave runners, boat rental, etc and several coupons were available at the office and the staff was very helpful---we would stay again.

“Fantastic !!!”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2009

Everything was exactly as it was listed in the description, the condo was beautiful with all the amentities you will need for your stay. We had 3 grandsons under the age of 7 with us and they had a more than enough to entertain themselves with the lazy river, pools, beach and kiddie water park. We all had a great time and the owner was great to work with. We hope to rent this unit again when we go back to the beach !! Thank you again.

“WOW Beautiful!!”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2009

Everything about this place is beautiful the condo's where fab and clean, the pool and lazy river was great my 4 kids never got bored at this resort, the beach was so soft and wonderful. You do walk across a crosswalk and across the Destin Gulfside to get to beach less than a 2 minute walk but the bay side accomadations make up for the walk to the gulfside. Wonderful most relaxing vacation i have ever taken in my life. I cant wait to save up again and come back.
