About Julie Rawson

My husband is a Gastroenterolgist in Columbus, Ms. We have three children and three wonderful grandchildren. We presently own five condos of varying sizes at DestinWest. Both my husband and I love the outdoors, fishing when time allows and he is an avid hunter.

Why Julie Rawson chose Fort Walton Beach

We originally pruchased at Destin West pre-construction in 2002. We have owned on the gulfside but presently only own on the bayside. We personally manage our own condos and strive to furnish all of our guest with a good experience for their vacation.

DestinWest has all of the ingredients needed for a fun filled and relaxing vacation.

What makes this condo unique

The lazy river, all of the pools scattered throughout the property, the ability to enjoy both gulf side and bayside all add up to a great place to stay and vacation. Nearby is the public fishing pier, many great restaurants, unique shopping and everywhere there is ample laid back atmosphere. Come enjoy!

The condo was beautiful. We needed to contact the owners on two occasions and they were there withnin 10 minutes! We had plenty of room and lots of extra beach stuff provided for us. We will stay here again.

This was a 5-star experience for us. The condo was perfectly outfitted for our large group with kids ranging from 6-16. We especially loved the access to beach chairs and toys that we did not have to bring ourselves. Thanks for a great stay.

The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. Location was great - being able to walk out the back door to the lazy river was very convenient. The garage equipped with beach/pool supplies was great and helped getting everything over to the Gulf side. Would definitely stay here again.

October 2014 Visit - Last Minute Family Fun with Teenagers and Adult Son before his Deployment A++++

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, I completely spaced writing a review when we came back from this trip as we came home to some unexpected bad news. We stayed in this FABULOUS home in October 2014(won't let me go back that far on calendar) on a very very last minute trip to spend with our eldest son before he went on a deployment. We have vacationed in Destin area almost yearly for over 20 years and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed. It's decorated beautifully and comfortable. The layout is fantastic inside and out. The wrap around porch on the side of the unit was a nice separate quiet spot to read. There is a very large patio out back that overlooks the pool and lazy river. We ate dinner out there every evening. The next level down from that patio is a second area consisting of a grill and hot tub. A quick turn allows you access to the garage which was completely equipped with beach chairs, toys, and even carts. WHAT? First trip down there where I didn't have to spend money on those things and leave them behind! The best part of this level of the patio is the direct access to the grounds. Yes, you heard me correct. This has a gate that takes you directly out to the area that the unit overlooks of the pool and lazy river. A very short walk to the pool entrance and you're inside relaxing in one of several pools, hot tubs, or the lazy river with the zero entry. It's a short walk over to the elevators that take you to the breezeway to crossover to the gulfside to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches and water. We have had many friends complain about staying in other places and waiting for long periods of time for elevators to get in and out of their room. That will never be a problem here even during Spring Break! I typically like to stay in a place with a view of the ocean but I'd give that up for this unit again any day. The pool/lazyriver lagoon like view is so lush and tropical. This side also is connected to the bayside which has a gorgeous view and sidewalk for a nice stroll. When we were there they were building docks. I'm looking forward to our return to see what's changed. There's also a set of stairs where you can step down into the Bay. Our son was able to catch a few things while he was in there. Communicating with the owner and manager was fantastic. They were super friendly and quick to reply. They handled everything superbly. One of them had even just had surgery and didn't let that get in the way of excellent service. Thanks
