Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

We are the new owners of Heron 609, located on the sixth floor in the upscale Heron Building of Destin West Beach and Bay Resort and are very happy to share our second home with you and your family! Heron 609 has been totally renovated. Everything has been updated for your comfort and vacation experience, down to the smallest detail. This three bedroom, two bath condominium is a large end unit (1974 sq. ft. total area) with extra windows and is light and bright for your enjoyment. The wrap around terrace is very large and roomy for evening meals or coffee in the morning as you overlook the unobstructed view of the bay and lazy river. You can see the bay, lazy river, or gulf side from every window. We really loved that about Heron 609! So beautiful and relaxing....

In August 2013 we updated the condo with the following:

Living area:

Beautiful tropical decor including new ceiling fans, paint, draperies, rugs and furniture. We added a leather Queen sleeper sofa, and huge Panama Jack entertainment Center with flat screen 50' television and Sony Blue Ray player.

Kitchen:

Gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and upgraded stainless steel GE appliances. Kitchen is equipped with everything down to new paint and decor! Great cookware, dishes, and every kitchen gadget you can imagine. My husband stocked the kitchen, and loves to cook so made sure you have everything you need to create wonderful meals down to the crab crackers and commercial blender!

Master Bedroom:

Master has new wood flooring, rug, paint, ceiling fans, and beautiful new tropical furniture with king pillowtop Sealy Posturepedic mattress and Ralph Lauren bedding for your comfort. Flat screen television with Sony Blue Ray player for watching movies swivels in all directions for your enjoyment. Ensuite private bath with large Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and double vanities. Large walk in closet. Nice sitting area for morning coffee with terrace access and picture window overlooking the lazy river and bay. We want to make sure you have a good nights sleep and feel surrounded by comfort while staying in our condo.

Bedroom Two:

The second bedroom is just as nice as the master for the couple who vacations with friends or family. Bedroom two also has king bed with new Sealy Posturepedic mattress and Ralph Lauren bedding for comfort. New wood flooring and ceiling fan installed and freshly painted. Flat screen television with Sony Blue Ray player to watch movies. Beautiful bay view too!

Bedroom Three:

Private balcony with gulf view from this room. New wood flooring, ceiling fan installed and fresh tropical paint with fun decor that just makes a person happy! Twin beds and new armoire for flat screen television and Sony Blue Ray player.

Laundry:

Separate laundry room with full size washer and dryer and plenty of storage for your stay. Pack and play and booster chairs also furnished for families with small children.

Fabulous condo and location

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo, loved the way it was decorated and all the extras. The living room sliding glass door was difficult to open; however, with toddlers in the house this worked perfectly for us! Just hope we can return next year.

Great place, couple of recommendations

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from staying here last week! It was great, the condo looks exactly like the pictures and it was perfect for two families with children. Theres actually bunk beds in the 3 bedroom instead of twins which is better as it provided more sleeping room. The only critique we had was that when we asked what all we needed to bring to the condo we were told laundry detergent and thats about it. When we arrived there was only 2 toilet paper rolls, which we didn't realize until we were out!! and 1 roll of paper towels. There also wasn't any dishwashing soap. Now I think its fine to ask guests so supply these items but as a courtesy you should tell people they will be expected to buy toilet paper. It is not good when you have 5 children and 4 adults and no toilet paper !!! we also had to call for a repair of the A/C dripping water and the main door not working but they were prompt about coming up and while the main door to balcony wasn't fixed it wasn't a huge deal and I am sure they will fix it soon! Overall wonderful would love to stay here again!!

summer vacation

  • 5 of 5
we stayed here pretty recently and the new owners did an awesome job remodeling the place. It doesnt even look like the same condo from when we stayed there last year. Had tons of new cookwear and all the amenities we needed. The beds were more comfortable than the ones we have at home. We would definitely reccomend this condo to a friend and will be back in the summer.

Review of wrap arround balcony room

  • 4 of 5
This was a very nice condo. The bedroom furniture was in need of updating and cleaning. The bed clothes were in need of replacing as well. The patio doors needed repair very badly. We moved the twin beds to make one large full bed and the carpet under the bed had dead bugs underneath. The photos on line accurately showed the rooms. The main door was almost unable to open at all. We did call for a repair later in the week as it got worse but they did not come for the repair. The view was beautiful looking at the lazy river and the inside of the resort. The kitchen was stocked very nicely as was the laundry room and bathrooms. We had a nice complementary bottle of wine when we arrived. The owner has been very good to answer all of our questions as they were emailed. Overall, Destin West is our favorite resort for so many reasons like local attractions.
