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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! Bonnie was amazing and super helpful. The condo was perfect for our family of 3 and could easily accommodate a family of 4-5 without issue. The ocean view was incredible. Best vaca hands down. I will be coming to Destin every year now and we will use Bonnie and Bob for our housing needs.

Great condo, great owner and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Bonnie was very nice, and she provided us a nice place to stay. The view is great and we felt close to everything Destin and Ft Walton had to offer. The Destin West amenities were fun and well taken care of. All in all it was a great trip and we hope to come back again sometime!

First time to the panhandle was great. Condo was in excellent condition with a nice view, facility was great, and the owner, Bonnie, was even better. Will definitely rent from Bonnie again!

Couldn't have asked for better!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at other condos on the gulf, and they were nice, and the owners were nice too, BUT Bonnie was above and beyond!! The extras she provided are so well thought out. She obviously knows what is important to renters. And to top everything else, she had homemade cinnamon rolls in the fridge waiting for us- so sweet! Condo was beautiful and so spacious! Beautifully decorated and the complex itself had great amenities. Loved it!

Owner's Response: That was a sweet review!!! Thank you so much!! I do try hard. I know how hard Bob and I work for our vacation time and when we head out, a disappointment in our hotel is always a big let down. This condo is so much more than a hotel. We are very proud and glad to share it with people like you! Thank you!!!
