Vacation Rental Reviews by Flipkey

Perfect location

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Tamera P.
We loved our stay at Heron L05. It was a private hot tub on our own lanai unit with 3 king bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There was starter rolls of toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher tablets and small laundry soap. Anything you could think of that you would need (including a wine opener and quick ice maker in freezer) was in the kitchen. The crockpot was missing but when we reached out they were able to bring it very quickly. We had quick access to the lazy river and small pool to the left that was in the sun in the morning and shady in afternoon. Easy checkin as it was all done online before we got there and we had a door code. This unit is right by the elevators but it was not loud. We never heard anyone get on or off.Well maintained and beautiful bedroom furniture with extra pillows, high chair and pack and play. We would recommend it to anyone and will be back!
Manager Response:
Hi Tamera! Thank you so much for this great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found all of the little touches that were added helpful. We hope to have you back soon.

This is our 4th time staying at Destin West. We have stayed in different units every single time and all of them have been fantastic. Sometimes I feel we can find something different next time we go, but the location and set up works so perfectly for our family. We love the lobby units because we get to BBQ and hang out in the patio while still watching the kids in the pool and lazy river. The beach was the best we have seen this year, clear, no sea weed and even dolphins hanging out in our area.
Manager Response:
Camilla, thank you for your kind review. We are so glad that everything went so well during your stay. Can't wait to see you back soon.

Loved the room and location

Review by Jessica P.
We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The unit looks recently updated. The master bed does seem worn out, however it still slept very well! The sheets and mattress pad were amazingly soft and comfortable. We did have one issue during our stay, so we called and it was quickly taken care of by the staff, who were very courteous. This was our 3rd stay at Destin West. We've always stayed Bayside. We've stayed on the Penthouse floor and the 3rd floor. I was concerned about staying on the bottom floor, but loved it! I loved the ease of going to the Bayside pools. No elevator required. One reason we chose this unit was because of the beach supplies that were available. Not having to pack beach chairs, sand toys, a cart and umbrella for our trip was worth it this year. There was ample supply of everything in the garages.
Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Parrott, Thank you for your 5 star rating! We love hearing from our guests and are so pleased that you enjoyed Heron L-05! It has been recently updated and we work to keep things comfortable! We'll be looking forward to helping you book your next trip whenever you're ready to get your toes back in the sand!

First-time boat owners

Review by Roberto C.
Hello! We towed our 2018 Sea Hunt to Destin from our home in Texas. The property management reserved a parking spot for our trailer, and a slip for our boat. When we weren't boating, we were fishing from the Destin West pier. I really liked how close our room was to the bay and to the swimming pools.In conclusion, I enjoyed everything about the condo and would definitely recommend to friends and family. I might even return sooner if you guys give me a good discount. Kind of offset my long travel expenses. 😉 Five stars from the Cardenas family.
Manager Response:
Dear Mr. Cardenas, Thank you for your amazing review of our services! We appreciate your recommendations to friends and family! We're so glad you had a great vacation experience and will be looking forward to helping you plan you next trip over!

Destin West, Heron L-05--455234

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Sharon C.
My family and I had a wonderful vacation at Destin West for the second summer. This year we stayed in the Lanai level, Heron L05 and really enjoyed being able to walk out the back door to the amenities. We loved the Lazy River and loved being able to walk across the bridge to the beach. This year we didn't have room to bring out beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys and wagon. It was a blessing to have a garage full of these items to be able to use. We stopped off at the Ramada on the way back from the beach and enjoyed their pool with the smoothie bar under the waterfall! We topped it off with my 11 and 13 year old grandsons catching fish off of the Destin West's marina with my daughter and son-in-law. Awesome trip! Our only complaint was we could never get the WiFi to work but even when we were out at a restaurant or anywhere in Destin, it didn't seem to work. For such a big tourist town, it seems Verizon and other carriers would have better coverage. We give Destin West a high five stars all the way!
Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Creech, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and the many amenities Destin West Condos has to offer. We're looking forward to having you back again soon!

Great Room

This condo is ideal for large groups with children. The pull out sofa allowed for more room for guests. The hot tub was a hit esp on the chilly nights during the spring season. The lower level allowed easy access to the bay and pool areas. Overall great condo.

Review by Gregory M.
Had a great vacation! Loved all the amenities that the resort had to offer. The children loved the lazy river, and everyone enjoyed the jacuzzi, grill, pools and the bayside pier for fishing. Fudpuckers marina was exceptionally convenient for renting a pontoon boat. We loved the location of the resort.

Clean condo in nice resort!

Review by
My sisters and I took the kiddos for a week beach vacation. We typically stay in the Sandestin area, so this was our first stay on Okaloosa Island, and on the bayside vs beach front. We loved the condo- the lanai level was great with kids running in/out. The hot tub ended up not being necessary. The kiddos loved all the pool choices and even enjoyed the Ramada for 8 & 12 ft. The only complaint would be the unit was not consistently temperature controlled- 1/2 was very cold and the other 1/2 too warm at night. Overall, this was a great place to stay.

Outstanding 4th of July week.

I was worried the bed situation and the lack of 3 bathrooms would cause a problem. Thank goodness I was wrong. We had 3 adults and 4 older teenage boys. This condo was a perfect fit for us! Whatever we needed or questions whe had during our stay were met!! Weather wasn't the best but the hot tub made it up for it all!!! Thank you! 5stars
