DESTIN WEST~HERON 609~TOTALLY RENOVATED~END UNIT~WRAP AROUND TERRACE

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.

After many years of dreaming of owning a beach home, we finally purchased our condo in July 2013 and are so very excited to share our home with you!

We thoroughly enjoy Destin West Beach and Bay Resort for all it offers. You don't have to leave for anything! We love being able to walk next door to great restaurants and outdoor music.

The most amazingly beautiful beaches are on the Emerald Coast and we are always amazed by the beauty of God's gift...

summer vacation

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
  • Submitted: Aug 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
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.

Our stay in this condo was great!! We loved the views, lazy river, location, and size of the condo. Property has a great fitness center. There is also a crosswalk over the road to get to the beach. This condo is located on the Bay side and there are boat slips available. The condo is very, very nice. A very large master bedroom and bath with jacuzzi tub. The other rooms were large and the living room was spacious also. We love the lounge table that seats 6 on the balcony. The balcony was very large, and wrapped around the unit so you could see across the street and see the ocean. This is by far the nicest condo that we have stayed in at the beach. The condo is located right across the street from a neat place on the beach that has several places to eat, beach volleyball, bars, and a pier. We eat at the Crab Shack and it was excellent. The traffic was great because Destin West is located on the island and there aren't many condos nearby. If you go here we do recomment eating at Maguire's located just across the bridge going into Destin on the left. It is a Irish Pub and they have great food. They are known for their ribs and prime rib. This place is unique because there are over 900,000 dollar bills on the ceiling and walls. People put them there for luck. While in Destin you must also eat at the Donut Hole for breakfast. The have donuts, cakes, and pies that are great. Destin is by far the best place to stay when going to the beach. The beaches are nicer and the water is emerald colored and is always clearer than in Panama City. This condo is also located down the street from the Gulfarium. A good place to take your children. It's kind of like a little Sea World but very nice and the kids will love it. We will be going back!!!

Unit 609 - Heron Building

Our stay was most wonderful. The views from the unit were exceptional and beautiful. With the oil coming ashore, your resort has the most anyone of them could. The Lazy River was great, a choice of 5 pools, etc. The bathroom in the Master was wonderful and the views from that room were breathtaking! I would certainly recommend anyone interested in staying in Fort Walton to stay at your establishment.
There would only be two suggestions and they are not important at all. It would be nice to have some type of music system installed for i-pods or CD's and the second bath could be bigger with a bigger showering feature. The bath wasn't needed in that one at all.

Thanks you for your generosity and our experience. We'll certainly be booking with you again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Destin West. The lazy river was great for the kids. I loved the balcony over looking the river and the bay was beautiful. We had plenty of room and were very comfortable while we were there. It's a great place to stay.
