Our 2nd stay in your condo    Sep 29, 2018

Perfect Vacation!    Sep 15, 2018



Great week! We spent our mornings enjoying the beautiful gulf front view from the condo and got some great sunrise pictures from the balcony. We also had fun watching the dolphins. This condo has everything you need for cooking, relaxing and sleeping. We spent our days on the beach. The water is so clear and the white sand beach is awesome. The complimentary beach service was great. After the beach we headed to the pool each day to cool off. There are many pools to choose from and none were ever crowded. We enjoyed early dinners at wonderful restaurants in the area - Hog's Breath Saloon, Margaritaville, Fudpuckers, Louisiana Lagniappe, Lulus and Mellow Mushroom. We ended our days on the beach again watching amazing sunsets. We had the perfect vacation and hope to return to this condo! Mike and Paula September 2018 From Kentucky

Breathtaking views    Apr 10, 2018




The view is breathtaking. You can see the dunes to Destin and the pier at Okaloosa Island. We saw dolphins, stingrays and pelicans at the beach. I was surprised at how clear the water was, in shades of green and blue. The sand is so pretty. We left our doors open to listen to the waves. Walking distance to good restaurants. Not as hectic as Destin. We loved it!

Exactly what we were looking for in the Destin area    May 19, 2017

Our main purpose for going on this trip was to introduce our 2 year old son to the ocean and beach. His favorite things always seem to revolve around the ocean so this seemed like a perfect fit. We live in Texas and rather than going to a 'good enough' beach in TX, we decided to drive a few more hours and spend a week in the Destin area. We originally chose Okaloosa Island due to less crowds than Destin itself and we were so glad we did. It also helped that we were here in early May. In addition, the weather was perfect and the beautiful view out of the condo's windows highlighted that fact every day.

I agree completely with several of the other reviews. This place delivers exactly as seen in the photos: clean, organized, and has pretty much already has anything you think you may need. We spent every morning on the balcony watching people walk the beach while we enjoyed breakfast and ended every day watching the moon over the water. As each day inched us closer to the end of our vacation it became harder and harder because we knew we'd miss this place - and we certainly do. We have a decent yard and all, but nothing like this :)

For us, the location proved to be perfect. It's away from the hustle and bustle of Destin itself and - having a 2 year old - it was in ideal proximity to several mini-golf options and the Gulfarium. Granted, we ended up spending at least 4-5 hours a day on the beach - and that was fine with us! Just a quick walk after you get off the elevator and you're there. Couldn't have asked for anything more. We also ended up having either dinner or lunch at nearly every restaurant at the Boardwalk and enjoyed them all.

Suffice it to say we absolutely plan on coming back and staying here again soon. Both Marcy and the Destin West staff were fantastic leading into our trip and were always very quick to respond if we had any questions. As you can tell, I can't say enough great things about it here. If you're trying to pick between two or three places and this is one of them - just book this one. You'll have a great vacation that you'll never forget!

Perfect location and the most spectacular Gulf views......sunrise and sunset from the balcony!    Oct 01, 2016

Without a doubt, the most breathtaking views of the Emerald Coast! Both sunrise AND sunset from our wrap-around balcony! Came home with many beautiful reference photos for future paintings. Especially loved the calming blues and soft yellow tones of the decor. We prepared most of our meals in the condo and had everything we needed in the well stocked kitchen. Felt pampered by all the best....Fiesta dishes, KitchenAid appliances, etc. Also, how nice to be able to do a load of laundry whenever we wanted!

Fell asleep to the soothing sounds of the waves rolling in each night. Awoke to the gorgeous Gulf right outside our bedroom! Our son and daughter-in-law were very comfortable in their beautifully decorated private bedroom and bath. Made good use of the beach chairs and umbrella every day and enjoyed moonlit walks on the beach each evening.

We ate outside at the Crab Trap, an easy walk from the condo, and highly recommend the Southern style crab cakes and the Jumbo crab and shrimp linguine there. Had breakfast one morning at Destin's Another Broken Egg Cafe. The Floridian Omelette and the Granola, Fruit & Quinoa were really good! Also ate on the deck at Dewey Destin's restaurant....bronzed scallops, steamed potatoes, corn on the cob, and crab cakes, all mouth watering! Of course, we came back to the condo with one of their amazingly delicious authentic key lime pies!

Midweek, we rented a sparkling clean pontoon boat for five hours from the special folks at True Blue Crew! Had a great afternoon out on the Bay and saw dolphins, sand pipers, herons, pelicans and the many spectacular homes in the area. Lots of boats of all sizes in Destin Harbor, even a pirate ship!

Made a stop at Crab Island, and enjoyed walking in the clear green waters there. Surprised that the island is three feet underwater!!

Very much looking forward to our next visit! Marcy was wonderful to work with, graciously and patiently answering all of our questions. Absolutely could not have had a better stay!
