Review by Janet S.
Heron L-03 provided everything we needed for an enjoyable winter vacation. The unit for tastefully decorated and well equipped. We loved the outside area and hot tub. Another bonus was close proximity to restaurants and attractions.

Review by Heather H.
Destin West was beautiful!! Our condo was absolutely gorgeous and perfect for our grown family of 4. It was amazing having our own grill and hot tub on our deck!! The unit was spotless and the management staff was awesome to work with!! The complex was close to Destin without all the busyness ofDestin. We are already planning our return trip!!!

I have stayed at Destin West Beach and Bay 5 times. This was one of my favorite condos. Clean, has everything you need, convenient access to pool and lazy river, and plenty of space for our family of 10.

Review by Christine R.
The room and location were awesome. The location was great about 10 mins from Destin. The bridge walkway made getting to the beach no issue. The wagons that were provided and chairs were a great perk! The pool was heated and felt amazing! The pool area was beautiful. Only complaint the pull out couch bed was broke on one side making it difficult to pull out and put awake each day. We had 5 young kids and plenty of space!
Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Ronnebaum, Thank you so much for this amazing 5 star review! We love hearing about the things you enjoyed in L-08 Heron! I agree that the location and size is wonderful! I'm sorry you experienced some difficulty with the sleeper sofa and would like to express that at ANY time during your future stays with us, we are only a phone call away to handle issues like this. It truly is our pleasure to help you have the best experience possible. Sometimes screws work themselves out and and it's just a matter of locating it and putting it back in. We will look forward to having your family back again soon, and in the meantime we'll save you some sunshine!

Review by Amanda W.
We absolutely loved our stay. The condo was great and had everything we needed. We had 2 kids 5 and 6 who loved the bunk room and convenience of the lazy river. Destin West in general is so great when you have kids with conveniences such as wagons all the beach toys to the lazy river and splash pad. My only thing I would say would like better is check in time to get in room. It would be nice to get in earlier. Our favorite place to be and will be back next year!
Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Whitlock, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this wonderful review! We love hearing from our guests and truly appreciate the 5 stars! We'll be looking forward to helping you book your next trip whenever you're ready to put your toes back in the sand!

August Vacation

Review by Camilla H.
This was our 3rd time staying at Destin West and we never want to look for another place since this worked for us since the very first time. I love the fact that the walk to the beach is convenient and love even more that we have our own Lazy River just steps down from our patio, where the kids can just go and we can still watch them, as we bbq on our own pit as well. The kitchen is very well equipped and the size of this unit is just perfect for a couple of families. We never have to leave the area and this time we even rented a pontoon boat, which is located right next door. The whole team, including the owners are extremely professional and caring. We cannot wait to be back again next year.
Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Hardtmeier, We're so pleased to hear that you loved your stay in Heron L-08! I cannot agree more that this unit is top notch in convenience! We're so grateful for these wonderful comments and will be counting the days until your next visit! Until then, we'll save some sunshine for you!

Another Wonderful Stay At Destin West

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Betsy G.
This was our 5th year and maybe the best. Destin West has everything needed to keep our 3 very active boys thoroughly entertained for the entire time we are there. It is very family-friendly so everyone loves the accommodations. The condo is well maintained and clean. If we turn in a request for an issue, it is always handled immediately. We will now begin counting the days now until next year's stay !
Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Griffith, We love hearing from our guests and are so happy to hear that you had such a wonderful time with us! Thank you for the five star review! We'll also begin the countdown for your return trip next summer!

We had a wonderful time at Destin West in L08. The beach was beautiful and the lazy river was just what the doctor ordered. Juli and her staff were the best. We will definitely be back.
Manager Response:
Dear Ms. Sutton, We're so glad you enjoyed this beautiful Lanai level unit! Everyone needs a little "vitamin sea" and we're only too happy to help with this in anyway possible! I've shared your praise with all of the staff. We're looking forward to your next visit!

We had a great time. Loved the condo and it's location. Access to beach items in the garages was amazing. Did have issue with batteries on keypad on door, but received immediate response and fix each time. Condo well equipped and maintained. Love the Lanai level for access to lazy river/pool. Highly recommend Destin West Beach and Bay!!!!
Manager Response:
Thank you, Barb, for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you back in the future.

This unit was very nice. The location on the grounds was fantastic. It is first level right beside the lazy river. The private hot tub was wonderful. The bunk room has a twin over full bunk with an additional twin trundle. You can sleep 4 in this room comfortably. We enjoyed this unit and our stay very much. I would return again!

No place compares to Destin West L-08 was fantastic. Perfect

Review by Zigmund S.
L-08 was just as described and exceeded our expectations! Me and my family enjoyed every minute and hated to leave. We will return. The view of the lazy river was fantastic. The ground level balcony made access to the bay pools and lazy river very easy. L-08 was decorated quite well and very spacious, Our family of 8 was very comfortable L-08 was a real value and we have stayed at other Destin West units. I will recommend L-08 to all my friends. There is an infinite number of activities available. Excellent opportunities for a wide range of food. Bay to ocean. Much in between Wonderful
Manager Response:
Thank you so much. Customers like you guys make our job so enjoyable. Hope to see you back soon.

Review by Lauren B.
My family and I have stayed at Destin West many of times. This was our 6th stay! This condo was awesome. It was our first time on the bay side and we really enjoyed it. It was great being steps away from the lazy river. The condo was beautiful and very spacious! We had 7 adults and we could have had a few more even 🙂 Looking forward to our next visit!
