Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the use of your condo. We had a great time at your rental at Destin West. With so many pools my kids had a hard time deciding where to go next. The especially enjoyed the lazy river. The view of the beach in this gulf front unit was spectacular. It was great to be so close to the heart of Destin but with out the crowd. We will be back.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

As we are packing up to leave and incredibly sad to do so, we are remembering what a great week we've had! The condo is in a perfect location, right on the beach and pool and close to the parking garage--where we always got a perfect spot! The decor is great and the condo is much larger than what it appears in the pictures. When we come back to Destin, we will definitely be staying here. Thanks for a wonderful place to stay!

Beautiful condo in the best location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to beach resorts for years, and we finally found the perfect spot. This condo is located - direct gulf front-closest to the beach. It took us only seconds to get on the beach. This condo is close to all of the amenities at the resort also. With a 4 year old and 2 teenage boys, it is hard to find a place for everyone, but this place nailed it. There was a huge pool and splash pad right next to us and then right across the bridge to the bay side is a huge lazy river. Also, for the adults, we were able to use the Ramada amenities, which had a swim up bar. This condo is also a short walk to the pier and restaurants.

The condo itself was clean and nicely decorated. I am really picky about beds, and they were very comfortable. The owners are totally cool also. I called both Steve and Greg before the trip and asked them tons of questions, and they were happy to answer all my questions. We will definitely be back!

My stay at the condo was fantastic! It was everything I hope for and more.!

  • 5 of 5

My stay st the condo unit 202 was wonderful! It exceeded my expectations. Beautiful, roomy and right on the beach. It was large enough for 6 people although there was only 2 of us. If you rent this condo you will not regret it! The pictures do not do it justice much nicer in real life!
