About Julie Rawson

My husband is a Gastroenterologist and I have spent the last 30 years managing his office and surgery center. We are blessed with three wonderful children and three grandchildren. Our children and grandchildren help in the management of our condo rental business.

Why Julie Rawson chose Fort Walton Beach

My husband and I bought this condo July 2006. We love DestinWest and are so lucky to own this particular condo. It has been a great experience getting to talk to and meet the wonderful guest that we have had stay in our home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

Heron L03 has the largest balcony at DestinWest and is uniquely situated where it has great views of the bay, the private pool of Heron and the lazy river. The gourmet kitchen makes cooking a joy instead of a job. The unique floor plan makes life at the condo enjoyable and comfortable.

Wonderful place to stay! I believe this was our 3rd year of renting this condo from Julie. What's not to love about Destin West? Lots of pools, lazy river, bay and beach side access by highway walkover, lovely condo with a huge patio overlooking the bay, pool right off of the patio, garage full of beach toys, clean, spacious condo. With our grown kids and grandkids, it gets harder and harder to schedule a whole week to get together. But we all love to come here, so try to find a way to make it work. Hoping to schedule next year's trip to rent L-03!

My family and I have rented this condo for our yearly vacation for about 8 years. We love it so much!! My grandkids won't consider going anywhere else. It is always so clean, which is very important to me. I could never stay in a hotel again after staying in this condo! We love love the lazy river, (so relaxing)! Julie the condo owner is one of the nicest people I have ever met! I now consider her a friend. She will and does go out of her way to accommodate you. This condo has a huge deck with a big screen tv, overlooking the bay. (Just Beautiful)! Also your own personal hot tub! We just returned Saturday from a wonderful vacation!! Already planning a return trip!! Someday, hope to go more than one week! Love it so much??????
