About the property

Condo, 2 Bedroom + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

We are front and center! With straight on, unobstructed, beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. The condo overlooks those gorgeous white sand beaches that florida is famous for. The amenities are vast with the 4,000 sf pool and hot tub, and oversized pool deck area directly below.

Location, location, location! We are literally next door to the landmark fishing pier and boardwalk (with shopping and restaurants) on one side and the Okaloosa Island National Park on the other. Destin West Resort with the on property amenities of The Childrens Water Play area and The Lazy River, and help Destin West to measure far above the other communities in the area. It just does not get any better! Nature and private beauty one direction, fun and entertainment the other.

We purchased this unit and chose buttercream yellow and nautical blues to give a happy-'on vacation' feeling when we redecorated . Newly updated with beachy furniture and appliances throughout. The master bedroom has a king size bed, and bath. The bunk room has its own full bath and twin bunk beds.

We absolutely love our vacation home and are glad to be able to share it with you!

About Bonnie Perry

Our son married his beautiful wife on this island, September 17, 2011. We were immediately magnetized by the beautiful sunsets, dancing dolphins and the peace it brought over us. Love was in the air and we feel it everytime we come to visit!

Bonnie Perry purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bonnie Perry chose Fort Walton Beach

Location, Location, Location! We have straight on views of the Gulf. I can be standing in the kitchen or sitting in the living room and I look straight out at the beach!!! We can walk over to the Boardwalk for a sunset dinner, go float in some inner tubes when we have had too much sun, get away from everyone and walk to the east side of our property and be on national park...... it does not get any better.

What makes this condo unique

We work so hard that when we come to the beach we just want to relax and re-energize. There is something about the Gulf of Mexico that rejuvinates and floating in The Lazy River is totally peaceful. It just does not get much better than this.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week here. Plenty to do in the area. Our boys enjoyed all the pools we had access to. Our room was clean and had everything we could ask for and more. I highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks John! I really appreciate your kind feedback. I hope that you will trust me personally next time with your hard earned vacation time. I hated having to have someone else manage my property for me while you were in town, but it looks like everything went OK. Next time I will be back to me doing everything 100%. I love to spoil my guests myself.

Great Condo and Fantastic Owner

  • 5 of 5

I took 4 kids down to Destin West for spring break and all was fantastic! This unit is roomy and all 5 of us had plenty of space. The condo's deck has fantastic views of the beach and you are only a short walk down the stairs to the beach. There are several pools to enjoy including a lazy river. There is also a small water "park" for smaller kids. It has different obstacles that shoot water at the kids (not a park but a small enclosed area). Bonnie, the owner, was an absolute pleasure to deal with while planning our vacation. She was quick to respond and was genuinely concerned about us enjoying our trip. Unit was clean and had all we needed during our stay.

I would definitely recommend this unit to my friends, and I would definitely rent this unit again.

Great Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week at the condo for Spring Break - we had rain on the day we arrived and rain the afternoon before we left but otherwise weather was nice. Most of the pools and Gulf water were a little too cold for swimming, though there were plenty of hot tubs and heated small pools to dip into. The lazy river was a short walk across the road via footbridge. The view from the room was a pleasure to wake up to and we had chairs available on the beach if desired! Our two kids loved the bunk beds and noise from other guests was minimal - we were overlooking one of the hot tubs so that could get a little noisy at times though. Bonnie was very responsive to our questions and helped with any issues we were having. We took a Roku player with us to watch movies etc but the wireless network was a little too spotty for this - there were plenty of books and board games though in the condo to keep us amused! The nearby restaurants were all great, especially the Crab Trap, and a short walk on the beach or really short hop in the car! We would definitely look at returning again - maybe when the water temp is a little warmer!

This place was incredible! We had are best vacation ever. So very peaceful in February and no crowds. The best part was Bonnie!

We will see you in February Bonnie! LYM

Owner's Response: I am looking forward to a time when you can come back and stay longer. The winter months are so inexpensive and I will discount even bigger for my repeat guests, like you that have become family. I want you back often. I hope we have years of memories to share in the future. Bonnie

John V Rouse Williamson, WV.

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled to a lot of places in Florida over the last several years. Miami, Tampa, Ft Meyers, treasure island, Naples, Marco island. I've never and I mean never had a better experience than the one I had here! We arrived a night early and we were treated to a free night in a bigger condo than we booked originally. That saved us a huge hassle and well over $100. We had the most amazing view from the room, and the owner went out of her way to check on us to see if we were satisfied with our stay, and it would be an understatement to say that we were. My Florida vacations from here on will be in Destin, at this property. If i had a question, or a need the owner was only a phone call or text away. She even offered to pick us up groceries when we got there so we could get settled in and get as much leisure time as possible. This was an award winning stay!!!!
