Born and raised in Grand Haven, MI on the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan. I married my high school sweetheart and we have two awesome boys. My husband and I both went to college and began our careers in Texas, then moved to Memphis ,TN and lived in Memphis for 18 years. We have since moved back to our hometown to help take care of aging parents.

Lori Vieau purchased this condo in 2005

The panhandle of Florida has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and we fell in love with Fort Walton Beach area on our first visit back in 2004. Our condo complex has one of the best beaches, pool areas (lazy river), amenities, and georgeous landscaping and that is why we purchased a condo here. In addition, we have friends who own condos in the area as well and we just love to spend time here.

Our condo is a very family friendly place to stay and once you visit you will want to come back every year to create memories with family and friends.

Awesome time despite the weather!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home last night and I wanted to go ahead and review the condo. First the owner....superb to work with and answering all our questions. Now the condo: Once we arrived we found the condo very clean and inviting. It was very well appointed with all the kitchenware anyone could need. Also if you like movies or playstation they had tons of each. The viuew from the balcony was very beautiful as well. The resort itself was top notch too!!! We spent all the time we could at the pools and lazy river. If the beach is what you are wanting then just a short walk across the walkway and you are there!! There are restaurants all within walking distance and a grocery store about a mile or so up the road. I would highly recommend this condo as well as the resort to anyone. We have already started looking towards next year!!!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5
We recently vacationed at this property. We had a great time! I was hesitant since we were on the opposite side from the beach however with my 6 year old the lazy river side won out 100%. We still went to the beach almost every day however the nights and afternoons were spent on the lazy river. The room was great! My son loved playing the video games from the bunk bed and I loved the extra bathroom.

We will be back for sure!

Family Spring Break 2012

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing your wonderful condo with our family! We enjoyed the floor plan of the condo and watching movies nightly on the big screen. The view of the bay was nice from the balcony and we loved having the lazy river just below. I was very surprised how very few people were in the lazy river. It was so relaxing! We facetimed many friends and family this view and they all want to visit, too. The ocean was beautiful and clear and the weather was awesome,,,no rain!!! The walk over the bridge to the gulf side wasn't too bad at all, but when we brought the chairs, beach toys and cooler, it was better to drive over. This is an excellent condo with a nice, comfy master bedroom, but if you are like me, just bring your own fluffy pillows for extra comfort. The kitchen was perfect and provided everything we needed for a nice stay. We went to the local Publix for groceries and it had great deals with the best customer service. There is also a gas station next door with yummy shakes! You will not be disappointed with this condo and the owners. They were great to deal with and made the transaction process very easy. We didn't arrive until 1am, but the punch in code made it nice, so we didn't have to bother anyone for keys. Thanks again Lori and Michael! We plan on coming back.

Needed cleaning

  • 3 of 5
This was our first trip to Destin-Okaloosa Island and we really enjoyed it. Destin West was a wonderful pick for us. We have a nine year old that loved the lazy river and pool. The grounds were clean, and the pool area was always neat and clean. The workers were out every morning making sur e everything was nice and neat. This condo is on the fourth floor with wonderful views of the Lazy river, pool and bay. I almost wanted to live on the balcony. I don't know if the cleaning crew were in a hurry but if so they need to slow down and make sure everything is clean. Floors were still dirty in bathrooms and down the hallway. My son found toast behind the couch and bugs behind the living room drapes. The furniture on balcony needed cleaning, as did the glass doors. Carpet in bunk area is nasty---needs replacing bad. The mattress in the master bedroom squeaks so bad --it needs replacing also. Carpet in bedroom needs cleaning or replaced. I wore socks on my feet the whole week and they were so black I could not get them cleaned so I tossed them in the trash when I got home. Mike and Lori were wonderful to work with, but the condo needs some freshing up. It was not the platinum condo that was advertised but it could be. The flat screens and surrond sound were wonderful. In all I am so glad to have been introduced to Destin West, but will research further to make sure we are getting what is being advertised.
