On the bayside, you have 2 private pools, a 700 ft. lazy river, 2 large hot tubs, a wading pool great for little ones, and a waterfall pool that is heated in the winter. You can also enjoy the beautiful landscaped waters edge where you can grill out and eat at the picnic tables and watch the boats go by. Dolphins also often swim in the bay also.

Not only do you have THIS pool area, but you can walk across the walkover to the beachside where you also have access to all of their amenities. This includes a 5,000 sq. ft. pool, kiddy pool, hot tub, and a kiddy waterplayground. There is also a state of the art fitness room. And don't forget the gorgeous white beaches at Destin West!

After that, enjoy 4 miles of undeveloped beach and bay front where you can escape with a private walk and watch the sun rise or take a dip in our warm waters.

We are also right across the street from the local boardwalk where you can eat at beachfront restaurants, let the kids play on the beach playground, fish on the pier, shop, or watch surfers catch a wave.

The Gulfarium is also within walking distance where they have great shows with sea lions, dolphins, sea otters, and many more sea life. Adults enjoy it as well! Choose from numerous famous golf courses and so much more.

Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this place was awesome. First time in Destin. Location was fantastic, condo more spacious than we realized...nice layout. Pools were heated (thankfully...not a super warm week for spring break). Beaches were phenomenal. Easy walk over to the beach. Nice facilities. Very calm and serene at our condo...nice to have the hot tub. Rented a boat from Fudpuckers...just a quick walk next door. We also got food here a couple of times. Very convenient and pretty good casual place.

Terrific condo with easy access to water sports and a short walk to the boardwalk. Kids loved the lazy river pool!

Beautiful bay views!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit. Spacious living areas, beautifully decorated.

There was one safety issue with the hot tub, there was no step stool for entering the hot tub. Almost four feet to step up and over getting in and out. Fall probability high. This was addressed with Shelley so hopefully, before anyone falls and injures themselves, this will be taken care of. Overall, nice amenities. Thank-you for a lovely visit.

So Nice We Keep Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

Destin West and this unit, in particular, are so great that we keep coming back. The condo is very roomy, stocked with everything you could need, and beautifully decorated . . . with a beautiful bay view from the balcony too. The complex and pool area are fabulous and exceptionally well-maintained. We absolutely love the lazy river (not a better one around), and the proximity to the beach can't be beat. Best of both worlds. Lots to do but so relaxing as well. Shelley was wonderful to work with, and we wouldn't hesitate to book again as this has been our favorite condo. Also, make sure to try Boshamps Seafood & Oyster House for dinner. By far, the best meal of our trip!

Owner's Response: Hey Erin, Thanks so much for the helpful review! We love having you!! I am so glad you enjoy our condo and Destin West as much as we do. I agree, others may have a "lazy river" but none are as beautiful, big, well-maintained, open, and well landscaped as ours. I love floating around and viewing the bay too! I am so glad you mentioned BoShamps. It IS great and is on my "Shelley's Favorites" list but thanks so much for reminding our potential guests where to go. Be sure to check out Harbor Docks close to BoShamps. It's equally as good and fresh. I look forward to having you anytime Erin! Thanks again, Shelley
