We LOVED it

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row to vacation at Destin West Bayside in the Heron, and we loved it all over again. This is our first repeat vacation and we brought my parents with us this time. We had so much fun enjoying all the amenities and getting to know other vacationers across the country staying onsite while playing in the lazy river. This is a gem of a location and Heron Penthouse 4 is the best! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful condo with us!

Excellent.

We loved our visit to Destin West Heron PH04. The condo was spacious and comfortable. It had everything that we needed. Access to pools with a lazy river as well as the beach gave us lots of options. The included beach service with chairs and umbrella were outstanding! Highly recommend this unit, we hope to return for another fun vacation!!

Family Friendly Waterfront Rental w/boat slip access

  • 5 of 5

Our stay last week was great for my family. The location is perfect for admiring the marina and access to the beautiful beach with a furnished umbrella and chairs. Note: Do go claim your set of beach chairs very early in the week to get placed closeby to the main DW walkover. We were placed farther down near the tiki bar since we waited a few days, due to rainy days.

We have vacationed in the area over the last 15 years ranging from Orange beach to Destin. PH#4 looks to have been professionally decorated and the DW resort/grounds are very well maintained. The added bonuses for this rental: 1. Get a great burger right next door at Fudruckers. 2. Upon arrival, I was very thrilled to find a beach cart for taking over to the beach. 3. Viewing the Boardwalk fireworks across the street from the rooftop/hot tub without the headache of the peak season crowd. 4. A close-up visit on Thursday from a pod of dolphins playing in the bay - aside the Heron pool. 5. The rooftop and balcony views are ideal for a plein-air painting - so take an easel and canvas if you desire. The only suggestions I'd have might be to add a metal grill spatula to use the public grill and perhaps getting the units parking spots # in the garage.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a relaxing vacation at your condo. We loved being on the Bay side with the views. The lazy river was a huge hit as we enjoyed it every day of our stay. Our living space was roomy and nicely decorated. We had five people in our group. Ages 24 to 74 and we all had a great time. We enjoyed a Dolphin Cruise and ate out a few times. We wrote down our recommendations in the Guest Book. Thank you for opening your FL home. It was our first time on that side of Florida and we definitely want to return. The only problem we had was the washing machine knob did not want to turn properly. It was hard to use but other than that all was well. Again... thanks!
