About Steve Higdon / Greg Bartholomai

So much to offer at Destin West

Steve Higdon / Greg Bartholomai purchased this condo in 2003

Why Steve Higdon / Greg Bartholomai chose Fort Walton Beach

The absolute best location out of 300 units. We are directly on the beach. On the 2nd floor, you won't need the elevator. Only seconds to the beach and Gulf. Make sure you watch our NEW video showing the entire unit and view to the beach.

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.

Awesome Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was awesome, it is better than the pictures. It is in the premiere spot as it overlooks the beach, and still wraps around to see the pool if needed, without ever knowing the pool is there. The owners are great to deal with and respond very quickly. Will definitely look to see if this condo is available every time we come down to Destin. We had 2 adults and three teenagers and it was perfect fit for all of us. Very Clean!

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!
