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 Florida Panhandle

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.

Reviewer Comments:

We have been vacationing in Ft. Walton Beach for 24 years and this was our favorite condo thus far. It is nicely decorated and well appointed with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The condo as well as the lanai are huge and right on the water with stunning views of the sunrise. The pool area with the lazy river and all the different pools is beautiful especially at night with the colorful lighting. Easy access to the beach via the bridge over hwy 98 where there is another pool as well as all the amenities of the Ramada. It is in a great location within walking distance to the boardwalk with several good restaurants, the pier and the Gulfarium. Fudpucker's is right next door and along with good eats they offer several different watersport rentals such as waverunners, pontoon boats and paddle boards. Julie and Jennifer were both great and want you to have the best time while you are there. Thank you both and I will definitely rent from Destin West Condos again.

Reviewer Comments:

This was one of the best rental units we have ever had. It was large enough for my husband and I along with our 2 daughters and their families and no one was ever crowded or lacking for room. The large patio and outdoor space was the best. The kitchen was very nice and well stocked. Everything was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The master bed room and bath was great. We loved the pool near our unit and the lazy river. We can't say enough good things about the unit for a family or large group and the management was great to work with also. The kids are already asking if we can get the same one for next year. We will definitely be back.

This was our 5th time to stay in L-03. We love Destin West and the owner of L-03 and her family. Everything was wonderful, timing was off for us since the Lazy River was down for several days. It's fixed now and ready for future guests.
