Lovely Apartment, Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in an outstanding area. We had an amazing holiday here. The apartment is perfect for 2 couples with two large bedrooms and a third for the children. We didn't use the hot tub as the weather was too hot. The patio door was broken (but still lockable) when we arrived, and Shelly did her absolute best to get it fixed straight away. We understand things can go wrong when you rent apartments, it's how it's dealt with which makes the difference, and Shelleys customer service was 5 star. We would definitely stay here again as the apartment is so lovely and the beach is amazing!

Wonderful place. Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the convenience of home. Located close to great restaurants. The beach was beautiful. Lots of family friendly people. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The management was quick in responding to any questions, not just about the property. Lazy river was relaxing and fun.

Beautiful property- relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Second time to visit- unit was very clean, had great views. Furnishings were nice- a little dated though. Mattresses were old- had to buy a topper to sleep on master bed. Guest bed was propped up by piece of wood. Hot tub had some broken headrests- could just use a refresher all the way around the unit. Suggestions from last year concerning a step stool for hot tub were used and appreciated!!!!

Owner's Response: NEW in 2017: New Tempurpedic King Mattress, 2 New Twin Mattresses, 2 New Rugs (Living/Dining), New beautiful vinyl hardwood floors in both guest bedrooms, 1 New Sliding Glass Door New Master BR Dresser Hi Leslie, Thank you for coming again. I do need to start out my response for future guests reading this and address that our Master BR King Mattress is a Tempurpedic NEW this 2017 spring! So, I'm surprised you found it uncomfortable. :( However, each guest is different in what they prefer. We do update many items every year in order to keep our condos well-maintained. Thank you for letting me know of the wood in/on? the guest bed. I am not sure exactly what this means as it is a secure bed, but I will look at it to try and better understand. Thank you for the suggestion of the hot tub headrests. I will take care of that. We do keep a clean condo and update major items every year. I am glad you appreciated the hot tub step stool I bought from your suggestion last year. We do listen to our guests! Thanks again Shelley

Great view

  • 4 of 5

Loved the view from this condo. The condo was nice however the master bedroom carpet is stained & frayed at the doorways, the kitchen cookware - skillets need to be replaced & plates are chipped. The hot tub cover is very worn & had sand in the bottom & oily film on top. The door security code changed resulting in our family being locked out of the condo the day before we were scheduled to leave; however, this was corrected with a phone call just cost some time & frustration.

Owner's Response: Hi Shari, I am glad you enjoyed the view from our condo. It is very pretty. I am sorry you were locked out the last day. That is frustrating. But I am glad we were able to get you back in. Sometimes people enter in their code too quickly. After 3 try's, it will lock you out for 5 minutes for security reasons. Our hot tubs are emptied out and filled back up with every change of guests. We have a very dependable hot tub maintenance man. If I had known, I could have sent him back out to vacuum any bit of sand at the bottom. We want your stay to be as comfortable as possible. Please let me or your next owner/manager know if you have any issues at all during your stay. We are more than happy to take of it for you. I will definitely check those skillets and chipped plates. Items get worn out quickly in a rental and I am more than happy to replace them when I am aware. So thank you for letting me know and thanks again for coming. Sincerely, Shelley

Great condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Destin West. The condo was actually better than advertised. (I recommend new pictures). Shelley and her team were a joy to deal with. Unfortunately there were a couple downsides, but none of them are the condo. The only issue I had with the property is one rule at the pool. No drinks in the pool. I understand no glass, of course, but if I can't go around the lazy river with a beer in my hand, it's not quite "lazy" enough for me.

It really is quite a hike to the beach. If you're expecting clear blue water, this is not the place. The beach Is next to a fishing pier so you have dead fish and chum coming on the beach constantly. If you're coming to fish or you don't mind walking 2 or 3 miles down the beach away from the pier, this is your spot.

Owner's Response: Hey Jeremy, I am glad you enjoyed the condo itself! And yes, we added new vinyl flooring to the guest bedrooms. I need to update those pictures. I think it looks beautiful! Whereas it would be nice to have a drink in the pool, it's not our resort's fault. It is a Florida State Law: NO GLASS IS PERMITTED ON THE POOL DECK AND NO FOOD OR DRINK IS PERMITTED WITHIN 4 FEET OF THE POOL’S EDGE. (FLORIDA STATUTE 64E.9.004(4)). As far as the Gulf of Mexico this year, I honestly don't think the fish are from the pier. It could be, but there is a certain time when the gulf has a low oxygen level and it causes dead fish all along the gulf coast. I am from this area and it happens every summer for a short time. But it's usually not a lot of fish. The past few weeks the water has not been very clear. Sometimes the tides bring in June grass. Maybe next time come in May, early June, or October. Those are some of my favorite months and the water can get extremely clear. I hope you will come again and maybe try one of our gulfside condos instead on a different month. Thanks for choosing our condo and I hope you will return! Thanks, Shelley

Loved the beautiful view of the bay!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very nicely furnished with everything we needed for our stay. We loved the privacy of this unit also. We would definitely rent from Shelley and BIll again. Thanks for a great week!
