It is five miles West of Destin and fifteen minutes away from the Northwest Florida Regional Airport (formerly known as Okaloosa Regional Airport).

One of the most unique amenities about this property has to be the lazy river. The lazy river is 700 feet long, 4 feet deep, 10 feet wide, with a man-made current. Inner tubes are provided for you to float through this palm tree adventure. It’s like having a water park in your back yard. The lazy river also has a zero entry point, meaning it’s very easy to wade into, even with toddlers.

The many other amenities of DestinWest Bayside include a pool with a waterfall, two hot tubs (one for adults, the other for families), and six charcoal grills with picnic tables. if you prefer that over the gas grill provided on the patio.

A bridge provides safe walking access over highway 98 to the beautiful sugar white sand beach and the amenities associated with the Destin West Gulf property. These amenities include a state-of-the-art work out facility looking over the beach, the largest swimming pool on the island, a smaller partially covered pool that is heated in the cooler months, kiddy splash playground, a kiddy pool, beach access, and hot tub, are all included in your stay.

Pelican L08 is fully loaded for your enjoyment. The master bedroom has a deluxe king-size bed, television with a DVD player. The condo also has a bunk room and a second bath. The couch in the living room pulls out for addition guests to sleep, and a collapsible baby Pack-n-Play and high chair is available. The living room has a television with DVD player and a Sony Blue-Ray for listening to your favorite music.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size fridge with ice maker and filtered water, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, oven, dishes, glass ware, pots and pans, silver ware, etc. This condo unit also has a washer and dryer.

Whether you’re relaxing with one of the many books we have available, watching DVD's we furnish or just simply floating around the Lazy River, you will not want to leave this little slice of paradise.

From our marina you can fish on the translucent bay or watch the sailboats, boats, and jet-ski's motor by. Dolphins swim in the bay and you can see them throughout the year.

Fun and Relaxing Family Beach Trip

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Steven M.
We have stayed at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort several times, but this was the first that we rented through Destin West Condos. Overall it was a great experience as usual. In particular, we loved that we didn't have to stand in line to check in, but the one downside is that if you arrive early you cannot get your wrist bands to burn time at the pools. The condo was very well stocked and had everything we needed. The kids had a blast, as usual. So it was just very relaxing and working with Destin West Condos was effortless.Three things to note for this particular condo:1. The living room TV is a model with a known issue where it stops responding to the remote control and button inputs. I attempted to swap out the batteries and it didn't help. So the only way to turn it off (sometimes) is to physically unplug it from the way. Annoying but livable for the most part.2. The master bedroom pillows need replacing. They offer no support. Minor fix that I believe the condo owner will happily remedy.3. The condo owners would actually do well to replace the master bedroom bed frame with something smaller. It takes up more room than it needs to in the master, AND it's fully framed so if you bump into it in the night you will regret it. It's cute and fits the theme, But choosing a smaller bed frame would make the room look bigger and more comfortable.Overall, it was a great stay and we will mostly likely be renting through Destin West Condos next year.
Manager Response:
Hi Steven! Thank you for your review. So glad you guys enjoyed your stay. We will gladly be looking to replace the pillows in the master on our next turn and I will have Josh or Julie look at the tv issue to see if we can fix that from happening in the future. We look forward to having you back soon!

great time and great weather. Came right after the hurricane but there was no sign of any issues. Nice facilities and the water was great.

Destin West Trip

Review by Marvin A.
We had a great time. Everything was nice and the management was easy to deal with. We can not wait to visit again. Overall the place was clean, I do suggest that the cleaning crew check hidden areas for paper and wrist bands from previous guest. I do think we were there during the time management was preparing for the summer season, but it was durable. Looking to book for next year when dates are available.
Manager Response:
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We always take suggestions to heart and appreciate your feedback!

We love it here

Review by Amanda W.
We love it here and will be back in the fall. I always recommend Destin West, it is such a wonderful place to stay and our teenage kids love it there! The only down side was we had wanted the private hot tube but it was broken but it all worked out and we enjoyed the community hot tube.
Manager Response:
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to leave us such a wonderful review! We will be eagerly awaiting your next visit!

Fall Break 2017

Review by Tim W.
We had an awesome time while staying at the Destin West resort. We have stayed here several times over the past years and they never disappoint. This time when we got into our room, the air had stopped working. We called Jennifer and she got in touch with the AC guy and he was there within the hour and fixed the AC. He said it was just routine maintenance and we shouldn't have any more trouble out of it and we didn't. Both the AC guy and Jennifer were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to stay in the Ft. Walton/Destin area to look at the Destin West resort! The dock behind the resort had some great fishing too!
Manager Response:
Dear Mr. Woodcox, I'm so glad we were able to resolve the A/C issue quickly! Your comfort is our number ONE priority. Pelican L-08 is a wonderful unit, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. We can't wait to help plan for your next arrival!

We ❤️ the beach!

Review by Esther M.
It was a fabulous even with the weather on the chilly side. The TV sound would not adjust so someone needs look at that other than that it was great!
Manager Response:
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the tv. We unplugged it and re-plugged it and it worked great. I think the storm must have reset something in it. If we had known during your stay we would have addressed sooner. Please never hesitate to call when something is not working correctly. We hope you will visit with us again next year.

Wonderful place!

Review by Lynn G.
The condo was lovely, and with two kids the walk-down to the lazy river was wonderful. While the kids are little, I would not go higher. 🙂 The condo was clean and well-kept, the bunk beds were fun for the girls, the walkover to the beach was super convenient. The owners communicated with us very well to prepare us for our stay and were prompt to address our few questions while there. We would definitely stay here again.
Manager Response:
Lynn Thanks for the great review. I am so gad that you enjoyed the condo. We look forward to your staying with us again in the near future. Julie

Our family had a great vacation at the Destin West! The kids loved, loved, loved the lazy river and zero entry pool. The condo was clean for the most part just a little dusty. The location is very convenient with restaurants and entertainment close by. Will definitely stay again!

Review by Margaret P.
We were in Destin for our daughter's national dance competition, held at the Emerald Coasr Convention Center. This is our second time staying at Destin West and just a couple of units over from our last unit. We knew staying on the "L" level was the best with easy access to the lazy river and pool.
Manager Response:
Margaret, Thank you for the very nice review of my condo. I love the location and convenience of this condo and am glad that it worked for you and your family also. Our goal is to furnish an exceptional condo to our guest for a stress free vacation. I am glad that we seemed to meet that goal for you and your family. Julie

The Destin West never disappoints

This was our fourth trip to the Destin West. We always stay on the bay side. Each condo we have stayed in has been clean comfortable. You never have to leave! In fact, it was hard to even get our kids to go out to dinner! I am already booking next year's stay. We prefer the lanai condos that have the easiest access to the bay because we love to fish from the pier.

Great place to stay

Nice condo. Nice location. Toddler friendly. Right by the pool entrance. So very convenient. A little noisy but we didn't mind. The property is beautiful nice and clean. The convenience was better. With lots of appliances and gadgets to make you feel like home. Nice tv with Internet. Overall it was great. The only thing that bothered me was that bath tub could be cleaner and under the pull out couch and the bed SHOULD be cleaned better as well. I found stuff under there. But other than that was excellent.
