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!

Great Vacation Spot!!

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!

Excellent Stay

Enjoyed the stay at this unit. The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive. We had one issue with the bed in the master bedroom and it was addressed promptly. The complex is very nice with the 3 pools and the lazy river, which is wonderful!! The beachside is also nice with two pools you can also use and beach rental setup available. The location is very good, within a few hundred yards of the Boardwalk with shops and restaurants (The Crab Trap & Floyd's Shrimp House were very good). Note that since you are on the Bayside, use the provided walkway over the road so you do have to cross four lanes of very busy traffic. The unit was very well equipped with plenty of room. You also have a full size washer and dryer in the unit, not the smaller stacked ones. The balcony was very large with enough room for a table, 6 chairs, and two new extra large lounge chairs with plenty of room left over. One thing I do wish is that the unit had a screen door on the balcony so you could open it and enjoy the sounds of the water some. The only issue we had with the balcony was the unit beside us was being used by smokers. While they were there on their balcony, the wind would blow the smoke onto our balcony which was not pleasant. In terms of the location to other things, you are within 2 miles of a very nice Publix and going the other direction, Destin Harbor with all of it's nice shops and restaurants. A place we enjoyed across the street from there was McGuires Irish Pub and their .18 soup. Plenty of other resturants and shops within a few miles. Finally, at the Elks lounge next door you can rent boats, etc. and it's within walking distance. They have a sign on the pier with the phone number. Overall, a very nice unit and we enjoyed our stay very much and would conside staying here again.

Owner's Response: Dear John,
Thank you so much for an in depth review. We hope you will come back soon! Its hard to beat the combination of convenience and loads of activities within just a few minutes of each other. And the unit itself does offer plenty of room with the unusually large balcony. I will leave the suggestion for a screen on the balcony for the owner.
Thanks again,
Sherry

Wonderful place to stay

This was a wonderful place to stay for our mini family vacation! The owners were very understanding and accommodating. The condo itself I beautiful and we loves eating outside on the covered patio facing the water. It's only a short walk over the crossway to the beach and about 10 min drive to Destins emerald waters and shops. The pool and lazy river at the complex are amazing, so much fun for people of all ages. My only regret is that I wish we had had more time to stay. Thank you!

We were so anxious to get to Florida as we hadn't vacationed there before. I can't say enough about the condo & resort itself. It was everything we had hoped for! We will definitely be back & look forward to booking again with Bill.
