Destin West Gulfside - Studio

Sunday to Saturday ONLY
Our condo is located on Okaloosa Island, a well-kept secret near Fort Walton Beach. It is on the Gulf side of some the most beautiful beaches in the world, known as the Emerald Coast for the sugar-white sand and emerald Gulf of Mexico waters. It is 1.6 miles from busy 98 (Emerald Coast Parkway), near downtown Fort Walton and 5 miles due west of Destin. The unit has full Gulf views to the south from inside or from the private balcony, with no pool or parking between you and the sand, sea grass and the Gulf. View the wonderful sunrises to the East and sunsets to the West from the living area and balcony. 

There are many good local restaurants located within walking distance in downtown Fort Walton and the Landing with continuous activities and benefits, including bottomless mimosas.  It's a peaceful, quiet environment, full of snowbirds in winter and weekly guest rentals during the high season.

We attract professionals needing and appreciating the tranquil healing of the sand, sea, and sunshine for a full week retreat with a party limited to two (2).  We offer a professionally decorated studio resort (488 square feet) with full kitchen, full bath with new tub, everything updated and pristine. 

Just to clarify, we do live here, but come and go with frequent travel, and may or may not be around in person. We are available via text anytime, and the resort offers front desk assistance from 9-5 daily.

The actual guest space is a large clean private 5th floor efficiency with a sleeper sofa, a separate queen bed, a rocking recliner, a cute drop leaf table with two chairs, and a large flat screen smart tv with basic internet and cable included. Coffeepot/tea service condiments available, with full updated stainless kitchen with granite counter tops. The full private bathroom offers a new tub and shower combination, towels, basic toiletries, and a blow dryer. A full-size iron and small ironing board are included with basic linens.

Shared condo space includes indoor /outdoor patio area, games, and hassle-free parking in front of the unit.

Guest access

Smoking is permitted ONLY outside as the HOA permits in designated areas, including vaping.  All condo rules must be adhered to or your guest occupancy can be terminated immediately with no refunds due.


Please park in any empty space and be sure to obtain the weekly parking pass at the front desk between the hours of 9-5.  Thank You!

The space
It is the best vacation destination for the professional, a couple or travel home exchange individuals, family, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa. Because this building has plenty of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say that these are the most beautiful beaches that they have ever seen. Television, surveys and magazines rate the Emerald Coast among the top ten in the world for its beautifully colored waters and sand as white as snow. The Islander boasts a waterfront heated pool, and beautiful architecture, and offers on site beach chairs available.  You can relax with your morning coffee or a romantic dinner on your quaint private balcony opening to the master suite/bedroom and living room, and watch the dolphins jumping only a few hundred feet away!
You have million dollar views of the gulf from the entire room. It doesn't get much more inspirational and romantic than watching the sun come up over the ocean through the windows, while still snuggled in your queen bed. This unit also has WiFi internet, cable TV, and offers an open air coin operated washer and dryer outside your door.  (Note: new stainless refrigerator doesn’t not host an icemaker) 



Got the inside scoop on the 2 chairs and Umbrella daily:

$30 per day if by the day

5 full days is $130
6 full days is $150

The beach boy accepts cash, check, credit card (Visa or Master card)

The full week is $168.00 and since you will be arriving late on Saturday and leaving early the next Saturday I think you will be most please with the 5 or 6 day plan, depending on weather, etc.

I hope you find this information helpful and will make it easier for you to plan your beach relaxation.
