Wonderful Stay at Destin West!

Review by Harley S.
We had a wonderful stay! The condo was beautiful. There was so much to do right there at the resort! Right between the bay and the ocean. It was perfect!

Perfect Vacation

I have no complaints about this condo! It was perfectly stocked, very spacious, nicely decorated, clean, and just an all around perfect condo for me and my family.
Manager Response:
Kayce, thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay this year and that it wasn't interrupted again by a hurricane 🙂

Highly Recommend

We love the location, amenities, and space at Destin West!! Great people to rent from!! Also loved that we didn’t have to add chairs, wagon, and umbrellas to our already packed vehicle this year since this is all provided now!!
Manager Response:

Loved Destin West

Review by Tracy P.
We (4 adults 2 chidren) spent 7 nights in Heron 506. This unit is spacious & comfortable. We all found the beds extremely comfortable. Adding room darkening drapery in all bedrooms would be a plus. The unit does only come with basic starters as expected, but I was surprised not to even find salt/pepper carry overs. Housekeeping was overall good, but the floors could use a intense cleaning. We quickly found our feet black. I did not contact anyone re this because it was a holiday weekend rush & it was something we lived through with flip flops. We had 1 maintenance issue (a/c line dripping in laundry) & it was handled in a timely manner on a holiday. Overall we would definitely return to Destin West & recommend Heron 506.

We'll be back!

Review by John R.
First of all, let me say that I'd actually consider buying one of these units as a place to come annually and rent it out throughout the season. What a beautiful part of the country! The beaches are pristine, the owner of this unit was such a delight to deal with. There is no check in or check out, just plug in your code and you're in! The lazy river is the icing on the cake. If there's a question on what to do, don't stress, just go float in the lazy river! If I can offer some constructive criticism, which is very minimal, this unit had some remote control issues. There's at least 2 remotes missing, so I'd suggest buying new ones to go with each TV and then labeling them. I'd also recommend having some movies stocked in the unit, as there are DVD players in the house. It would have been nice to go to a selection of movies and pick one to watch. Other than this, I've got nothing negative to say. Destin West is a must visit and a wonderful, stress-free vacation! We will be back!

Review by Jeffrey B.
We had a great time staying at Destin West. The walk to the beach was not bad and having the carts to use was helpful. We were able to watch the dolphin swimming in the bay from our deck. THe only issue we had was the pool filter is a little load but still had a great time.

family vacation

Review by Donna L.
We enjoyed our family vacation, the condo was very nice and well decorated . The only issue we had was the TV in the small bedroom hadn't been set up on the cable co so we couldn't get it to work. The condo had everything you would need if you want to cook or meal . They even got us a highchair and pack-in-play for my grandbaby.
