This property was just what we were looking for. The unit was clean and nicely decorated. We appreciated that there were beach chairs and a wagon available. That's a huge savings. We forgot to pack our beach towels and were pleased to see that there were 3 in the unit. We took advantage of the parking garage and were steps from our unit. This made loading and unloading a breeze.

The views from the balcony are great!!

We walked across the pedestrian bridge to the dueling piano show. Don't miss this. It was a blast!! They serve a great pizza both upstairs during the show or anytime downstairs. We actually had pizza twice during our stay.

This condo is a short drive to Destin but not nearly as congested on Okaloosa Island.

We had a great time!!

The condo was perfect and just exactly what we needed for my family! Only 2 things that weren’t great about our stay. We couldn’t set up our beach chairs and umbrellas right in front of ocean. We had to set up behind the umbrellas that were already up that you had to pay for. We paid lots of money to be beach front and couldn’t be beach front. To set up like we wanted we had to walk down the beach half a mile to set up. Then the last thing the hot tub on the gulf side was colder than the pool. The hot tub on the bay side was so hot you couldn’t stand to get in it. My kids love the hot tub but couldn’t enjoy the one on our side of condo because it was so cold.

We had our best beach vacation yet in Gulf 513! We loved the views of the beach and also the fun pool that lights up at night. The condo has very cute and updated decor, and it was very clean as well as having everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Our kids enjoyed the lazy river which was a short walk across to the bayside part of the resort via a pedestrian bridge, but we were so glad to book this condo on the gulfside which we liked best. Destin West was a perfect location close to great activities (Gulfarium, Wild Willy’s go-karts/bumper boats/putt-putt), Harborside Walk shops & boat trips, Crab Island access) and restaurants. We loved being able to walk to Al’s Beach Club for lunch without even leaving the beach!

Our stay was wonderful! The view from our room was beautiful on the Gulf side which included many dolphin sitings almost every morning! We had everything we needed inside the condo along with everything else within walking distance. Fun, shops, restaurants and beach bar! The additional access to The Island was great and the Bayside’s heated pools were great for the few chillier days we had. The Gulf side’s pool was a bit too cold for those days. The condo itself was comfortable and clean! The location was close to Destin which we traveled to multiple times to walk around the Harbor Village! Our family can not wait to return and make more memories here!

Angela,

We love coming to Fort Walton Beach and we always stay on the beach side at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. It was our first time staying in this particular condo and it was great! Beautiful view, clean, cute decor, and a perfect size for our family of 5. We would definitely stay here again. A few minor things: I do wish there would have been a guest book to sign to read comments,recommendations, etc. We all wish the larger pool and/or the lazy river would be heated for the spring time vacationers. There are other smaller heated pools and a few hot tubs, but those two pools are fun to use! They were just too chilly. We also would have liked to have had the nice, blue beach chairs and umbrella included in our rental. Overall, a relaxing, fun, and memorable vacation was had by all!

We were local to the area and sold our home earlier than our departure date. We stumbled upon DestinWest and were so happy we did. The condo was clean, beautifully decorated, fully stocked and the customer service was phenomenal. We highly recommend renting this beautiful condo. It fit our family perfectly. We were able to spend our last three weeks on Okaloosa Island where it all started for us 5 years earlier (we were married on island at beach stop 3)

Dear Ms. Hillyard,

Thank you so much for this lovely review of 513 Gulfside. We're so pleased to know that you enjoyed your time with us, and appreciate letting your friends and family know about us! We hope that you'll be back to the area and will stay with us again in the future.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your kind words about our condo and the location as well as view. We are happy that you were pleased with all of the extras we placed in the condo that you could use. I am surprised by your rating for cleanliness though. This condo just went through a full week of deep clean right before your arrival. We've stopped by a few times during your stay to check on you and bring you an iron, but you never once mentioned anything about this and instead commented on how wonderful the condo was. I am wondering if you even rate the way you believe because this is the exact rating you gave us last year on a different condo. I am positive this condo was spotless upon your arrival though and will be with each guest that arrives as we thoroughly check after each of our housekeepers. We do hope to have you back as a return guest in the future, but would love it if you would address us with these issues as soon as they come up, so that (if needed) we can work to correct them immediately.

•Did you have a good overall stay? We loved our vacation and this was the 2nd time we stayed in this specific unit this is decorated very beachy and provides a relaxing environment. I would highly recommend this unit.

•Was the vacation rental in a great location? The unit was located high up so the views were great, you can see both the ocean and the pier from the unit and at night everything lights up really cool. The unit location is perfect the perfect distance from the pier, only a short walk on the beach to go to all the restaurants (10min max walk) . All the pools we had access to were awesome, it was like you are at an all inclusive hotel.

•Was the home clean and in good shape? very clean and had all the kitchen pots and pan you would need to cook for a family. The beach wagon was in good shape too and included LOTs of pool toys for the kids to play with during our stay.

•Was the vacation rental management staff helpful? We Did not need to interact with them.

Destin West Resort was everything and more! This was our first time using VRBO and we had a excellent experience. The condo was in excellent updated condition. The View of the Gulf was gorgeous right from the balcony. We loved having options. Short walk to the beach, multiple pools to chose from and restaurants and beach bar with walking distance. We look forward to returning someday!

Dear Mr. Rolfert,

There are so many great things I have to say about Gulf 513! The view was STUNNING and the room was incredibly clean and well stocked. You open up the sliders and you can hear the waves crashing. We came with our 9 year old son who loved this resort!! Being able to choose from the various pools or lazy river kept him quite busy. The additional amenity of sharing the Ramada pools (and beach bar) was mint! This resort is also great for little kids as well with a splash pad and shallow pool. The condo was within walking distance of the pier and Boardwalk with a variety of restaurants to choose from along with fun night activities for adults and kids.

Manager's Response

This is why we are in this business! We love hearing about the good times had on vacations with familes! We'll be looking forward to your next visit!
