We are a large family with four young kids and loving grandparents who all love the Emerald Coast with its miles of perfect beaches, countless amenities and wonderful climate.

Sherry Knight purchased this condo in 2011

After living in the area for five years on two different assignments with the Air Force our family fell in love with the Destin area. We were fortunate to get the opportunity to purchase a family retreat that is large enough to bring three generations together in the heart of the Emerald Coast.

Destin West is the jewel of Destin area resorts. It is a one of a kind paradise that brings the beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay and Gulf of Mexico together to combine the best of both worlds. It is packed with some of the areas very best amenities. Our children can literally spend hours in the Lazy River, zero-entry pool and splash park.

Located in the very heart of the area we love walking to the Boardwalk, restaurants and shopping on the island and are just 5 minutes across 4 miles of secluded beach from Destin. Minutes from the best golf courses, dining, outlet shopping, theme parks, the airport, and both Air Force Bases you could not pick a more central location for a home away from home.

We selected our condo because of the luxury, size, and amazing views. At 1776 Sq/ft it is an oversized three bedroom that can easily accommodate our large family with space to spread out and relax. The master suite, great room, and large patio offer sweeping views of the bay that we wish we could wake up every day to!

Place was very nice and large enough for our family of 6. Beach was great and really enjoyed trying all the different restaurants. Condo was just as described. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed watching dolphins and boats pass by. The only two negatives were that it was hard to read the control settings on the stovetop and the pull out mattress for the couch should be replaced (mattress very thin and you could feel frame poking through) or just not counted in the number of beds available. Overall, I would recommend this condo. Thanks again for a great place to stay.

Our First Family Vacation to Okalossa Island

  • 5 of 5
We booked our vacation based on the pictures and descriptions from the website. We were so surprised when we walked in, and it was everything and more than we expected. The condo was perfect and the view of the bay (from the large patio) was awesome! The official bonus of the resort was the pool and lazy river! The pool was large enough to not feel crowded, and there were always tubes avaliable for floating. The walk across the sky bridge gave us easy access to the powdery white sand beach. A big thank you to Bill for making our first trip Okaloosa Island a huge success!

Owner's Response: Hi Carrie,
What wonderful things you had to say about your stay. I don't think anyone could say it better...perfect condo with a gorgeous balcony, perfect locale with the bay on one side and the beach on the other, and a Lazy River and swimming pools as fun filled additions!
Come back soon!

Unbelievable!! The best vacation I've ever had!

Unbelievable!! The best vacation I've ever had!
  • 5 of 5
Let me start by saying this condo was emaculate! The photos on the website are up to the minute accurate. I walked into my dream vacation. My husband and I were accompanied by our two small boys and my sister. There was more than enough space for all of us. The condo was furnished with every household item needed and up-to-date appliances. The carpet appears to be new and every dish in the cabinet matched. It is close to shopping yet secluded enough to be private. My husband took our boys snorkeling in the bay as I sat on the balcony and watched them. The pool access was literally just a few feet from the elevator and the beach was easily accessible as well. The nearby restuarants were fabulous. I recommend the crab trap but we also went to the fresh seafood market and bought our own seafood and had dinner on the balcony. Did I mention the huge private balcony overlooking the bay? The beautiful sunrises and sunsets are worth every dime I spent. I ate breakfast and drank my coffee every morning on the balcony over looking the bay (until my boys forced me to go to the many pools with them) and as soon as we got back I was out on the balcony again. I am in love with this condo. My only disappointment was leaving. I will definitely be back...soon. Thank you Bill and Sherry!

Owner's Response: Hi Alisa,
We are thrilled you loved your stay. Your review confirms again what we try to advertise to perspective guests: that the balcony is unbelievably nice, a great place to unwind, to dine, to watch family snorkel. The condo itself is perfect for the size family you brought. We just repainted and redecorated this spring. We appreciate so much that you loved being here and, hopefully, you'll come again soon! Ask for our return guest discount! It was a pleasure helping you have ' the best vacation you've ever had.'

Peaceful Spacious Balcony

  • 5 of 5
This was our 10th year staying at Destin West (bay side). As always, we love our visit! Owners of the condo and staff on site were very kind and helpful. Unit was very clean with updated decor. Third bedroom still had lots of room even with daybed trundle pulled out (make note, no closet or dresser for clothes). Location is great with only a few miles from all the many things Destin has to offer. Also, in walking distance of our condo are restaurants, shopping and water sport activities. Day or night, tranquil moments looking over the bay and a less crowded beach. Floating on a raft in the bay was my favorite pass time in the late afternoon.

Owner's Response: Hi Rachel,
Your review was right on with the many activities that are available at our condo. And the peaceful balcony view is the perfect respite after a day in the sun. Floating on the bay---what a great way to claim an afternoon of fun!
Thanks for a great review,

Great Vacation Spot!!

  • 4 of 5
My family of 6 stayed in the condo for a week and had a fantastic time! The condo is very spacious and had everything to make our stay easy. The view from the balcony is beautiful and its a very short walk to the beach across the walkway. The resort worked well for us with 4 kids - you can enjoy the beach but also have access to the many pools and lazy river. Our biggest decision every day was whether to start the morning at the beach, pool or lazy river!

The beds were very comfortable, flat screen TV's in all rooms, fully stocked kitchen, full size washer & dryer. We would definitely recommend the property and found Sherry & Bill very easy to work with.

Owner's Response: Hi Suzan,
Thank you for sharing such a comprehensive and glowing review. Osprey 302 offers a home away from home feel in a resort setting. And with its' location in the resort, it is hard to decide which activity to do each day. Plus the balcony is so large, private, and restful, overlooking the gorgeous bay.
Find a time to come again soon. We offer discounts to returning guests!
