Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

This is a fantastic, 3rd Floor DIRECT GULF-FRONT Condo. There are only 10 direct Gulf-Front Condos at The Destin West Resort! We offer FREE Beach Service which is a $175 weekly value including the set up of 2 chairs and an umbrella your entire stay.

Experience the sounds and views of the Gulf of Mexico from this Condo, sitting on the comfortable balcony with cushioned chairs. Watch seagulls swoop by and dolphins swim in the emerald waters. See the breathtaking sunset cast an array of colors across the sky and water's reflection. At night, take a walk in the sugary white sand and find sand crabs running along with you. Let the waves come and go over your ankles. And from the balcony at night, see the moon glistening on the water as you recall the relaxation and fun of the day.

And don't forget, The Destin West Resort also has a Bayside. As a renter on the Gulfside, you will have use of the zero entry Lazy River and the waterfall pool, as well as the hot tubs. Fun on both sides each and every day!

Inside the Condo, comfort prevails. Everything was designed for your enjoyment and ease. The kitchen is complete with all you'll need to feel that you are at home. Each bedroom is equipped with its own TV. Come and experience a perfect vacation - right on the sandy beach at Destin West in Unit 302.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a great time in your apartment, we drove from Birmingham, Alabama but we are from Holland and 2 of us live in France, close to Lyon.

It was wonderful to have such a nice beach this close and on top of that we saw dolphins several times!

Thank you very much,

Maaike, Grietje, Maia, and Nienke

SECOND HONEYMOON.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time on vacation. this is the second time me and my husband have stayed in this unit. The views from the balcony were wonderful. It was just me and him for this vacation, so we decided to make it a second honeymoon. it was well equipped with everything we needed and we love the decor in the unit. The free beach service was a real plus for us. We look forward to coming back next year and staying here again. Thanks for everything.

GREAT VIEW, GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is a true beachfront condo! Being on the third floor, it felt like we were right on top of the dunes and enjoying our own private beach front. The condo was very tastefully decorated and was nicely furnished (appropriate sized furniture for the space, felt roomy, and plenty of seating). My son loved the bunk room with his own tv. It was very well stocked as well- the kitchen had more than we expected and the hand-soap in the bathrooms was very appreciated! We spent almost every day on the beach- it was a quick walk to/from the condo. We have finally found the condo in the area we are excited to go back to!
Shelley was great to work with and responded quickly.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Kristen for the great review. We cannot wait to have you again. I'm so glad you noticed I bought hand soap for the bathrooms! I hate when bar soaps get slimy ;) It's the little things, right? The views ARE on top of the dunes, you are right! Great explanation. I couldn't have described it better. Hope to see you soon!

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
LOVED the ocean front view and loved the condo. Was very clean when we arrived. Could use alittle updated decorating, but otherwise we were very happy with it and hope to return.
The bed was very comfy and the kitchen was well equiped. Liked having things to do within
walking distance. Nice pool area and the other people around were friendly and fun.

Owner's Response: Hey Jerry,
You guys were wonderful snowbirds and you are right, you cannot beat that view! We have made some updates since you last left and I hope you will like them :) You'll have to rent from us again and check it all out!
It was a pleasure having you!
Thanks again,

WONDERFUL BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent our fall break at this wonderful beach-front condo. This particular unit is, in a word, wonderful. It is fully and tastefully furnished including a full, well-stocked kitchen. Of course, the best feature is the wrap-around balcony directly facing the Gulf. The property is ideally located on Okaloosa Island right in the middle of everything--Destin is just a few minutes to the East, Ft. Walton just a few minutes to the West.

The owner of this unit was friendly, helpful, and highly-organized. She made the process easy and was always available to answer any question she had not already anticipated and answered.

Wonderful beach, wonderful condo, wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Awww, R.G. what a lovely review! Thank you SO much. You made my day!! I am so thrilled you had a "Wonderful" experience. We do try and make everyone's stay a pleasure and try and treat everyone as if they were a friend or family member and you made that very, very easy for me.
You are exactly right and had a great write-up about the location of Destin West. I love where the condos are situated. Out of the way, but conveniently located by both Destin and FWB which are close by activities as well.
Thank YOU for being such great people to work with. You have no idea how much I appreciate pleasant tenants ;)
I hope you come again to any one of our condos at Destin West.
Have a blessed year and I hope to hear from you soon!

GREAT PLACE FOR OUR FAMILY VACATION!!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay along with our 2 & 4 year olds! The view is beautiful and the condo had everything necessary for us to cook our meals each day. The balcony is spacious and kid friendly and offers beautiful ocean and sunset views.
We will return!

Owner's Response: Hey "O" Family! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in the condo and that it had everything you needed. That wrap-around balcony is larger in size than it looks in photos with wonderful beach views.
We loved having you! You were great to work with.
Please come again anytime! :)

PERFECT FOR FAMILIES WITH SMALL KIDS!!

  • 5 of 5
Six of us (four adults and two kids) spent a week in the unit and it was plenty of space! I was a little worried about how the kids would sleep, but our 2 year old slept on an air mattress in the master bedroom (plenty of room for that) and our 5 year old LOVED his separate bunk area! The unit was much more spacious than the pictures showed, and the property was clean when we arrived. The bed in the master was very comfortable which is important when you're staying for a week! We weren't sure if there would be enough space for all of our groceries (we mostly ate there at the unit) but we ended up managing just fine with the space that we had. This was our first time staying at this resort and it was perfect. So much to do, and everything was so convenient and easy to get to with two small kids (and all the beach 'stuff' you accumulate!) The beach access was the easiest of anyplace else we've stayed, and we had a great beach view from the unit! There is a pool & hot tub that the kids loved right there by the unit, again very short walk, which lights up at night. You have access to the splash park at the Ramada, as well as their grotto pool. The walk over to the bayside was easy and the kids loved the Lazy River. We rented a jet ski right there on the bayside. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and Destin was a 5 minute drive so you have access the Destin Harbor, Boardwalk, with no problems. Shelley was wonderful to work with from beginning to end!! We would definitely return to any condo she rents out. Thanks for a great stay!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much "J" for your wonderful review. I am sure future tenants will greatly appreciate this detailed account of your stay. It helps to get anothers perspective of the condo and resort.
I am also so glad that you found our condo to be clean, comfortable, and spacious. It is hard to show how big they are unless I get a professional fish-eye lens for my camera. Many people say it's larger in person and that's a good thing!
I am also pleased that you also loved the convenience and all that the resort has to offer when either your little ones aren't too fond of the ocean or perhaps the ocean is too rough to play in at times. The resort gives kids MANY options and they are all FREE! I love having the Boardwalk right next door as well. And it's also a great addition that they have added water rentals on the bayside like pontoon boats, jet ski's etc...at the new restaurant Fudpucker's right next to Destin West Bayside.
Thank you for being such a pleasure to deal with! That really is a blessing to me.
Have a wonderful rest of the year and we look forward to your return anytime.
Sincerely, Shelley :)
