Do you like pina coladas and gigantic outdoor pools?

How about sand between your toes and hugely gorgeous ocean that makes you contemplate your place in the world (in a good way)?

What about easy access to a winding lazy river so relaxing that it’s been known to cause impromptu floating naps?

Whisk away worries that don’t fall in the category of “Should I order fried shrimp bucket or the blackened grouper?” at Gulfside Unit 209, where you’ll find yourself just steps away from the warm waters of the Gulf and the shops and restaurants of Okaloosa Island.


Because it’s steps from the gulf. Because it’s got a killer view of the sugar-sand beaches and the knock-me-out blue ocean. Because you can whip up a batch of strawberry daiquiris (virgin for the kids) in the well-equipped kitchen to enjoy al fresco on your gorgeous patio. Because the décor will remind you that you’re in tropical paradise. Because flip-floppin’ it down the boardwalk to the beach feels like the best walk you’ve made in years.

It’s your family’s newest getaway. Kids will love the bunk room w/door (it’s a law of nature) and you’ll adore the peaceful master bedroom complete with beachy décor and big comfy bed (king-size).

Two full bathrooms ensure that sunscreen application happens before you hit the pool and that everyone can get as fresh and clean before showing off your tans over fresh fish tacos.

Don’t enjoy lugging massive suitcases? No worries at all: there’s a washer and dryer in the unit. There is also a sleeper sofa in living room and ceiling fans to keep you comfortable.


They’re so good that we said it three times. Looking for a huge gulf-side pool? Check. Kiddie pools? Yep. Generously sized hot tub? We’ve got three of ’em. Get bikini-ready by starting off the day by pumping iron in the sleek state-of-the-art fitness center, and then spend the morning floating on the long lazy river as it winds around palm trees on the Bayside of the Resort.  The resort amenities are endless and help make sure that there is always something exciting to explore without even having to leave the resort.


You’re pretty much in the heart of it all. And by “it all” we mean everything from miles of untouched picturesque sand dunes to beach-front restaurants, ice-cream shops, and places for mom & dad to grab a fruity frozen drink. 

Make your own wake when you rent a jet ski or channel your inner Misty May on one of the outdoor volleyball courts. After that you’ll probably want to visit Okaloosa Island’s The Boardwalk and stuff yourself silly with all-you-can-eat shrimp at Floyd’s Shrimp House, where flip-flops are practically the dress code.

Sound like heaven? It is. And we’ve got good news: We can help you make your body-surfin’, flip-floppin’, daquiri-sippin’ dreams come true. Book today!​

Family fun at Destin West Resort
We stayed the last week of July and the condo was fabulous. We had plenty of room for our family of five :) Loved the easy access to the pools and the beach (although the water at the beach was full of June grass our entire stay). Good thing there were plenty of pools to pick from! The owner recommended a fabulous place to rent a pontoon boat from and we did that for a day and went to Crab Island and did some exploring. Another day we walked over to the Bayside and rented jet skis and kayaks and the kids also really enjoyed that. We ate at the condo for breakfast and lunch everyday but went out to enjoy local restaurants for dinner. We would definitely stay here again if we come back and/or would send other friends here!

First time to stay at Destin West Resort
We had an incredible time in Destin. The condo was beautiful! We had plenty of room. Loved the easy access to the beach and all of the pools! We also enjoyed all the local restaurants ( McGuires, AJ's, Harry T's). We also went to Crab Island! It was our first time to go and we highly recommended it!!!! We definitely want to stay at the resort again!!!'

Fun and Sun!
Wonderful accommodations! Clean,inviting,and a comfortable place to stay. Everything you could need or want is available in this condo. We had such a great time. We spent everyday swimming and sunning at the beach as well as all the pools . The grounds and the pools are well taken care of. The owner has equipped the unit well. Mr. Jenn was very helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed many restruants and our favorite was the Louisiana Langiappe. We did a few trips to the harbor walk in Destin as well as a dolphin tour in the evening, we enjoyed these excursions. What we enjoyed the most was the stay at the condo. Would love to come back and would tell anyone and everyone that this is the only place to stay!

Loved it!
Great condo! Clean, comfortable with every amenity needed. Loved being right on this beautiful beach. We ate some of the best food...McGuinnis Pub for steak; Caffe Italia One89 for pizza; The Whale's Tale for shrimp and crab omelet. Mr. Jenn is awesome to deal with! I can't wait to come again.

Great location and beautiful condo!
We have stayed in the Destin area a few times now but this was are FAVORTIE by far! The condo was prefect for our family of 4, the kids keep asking when we can go back! We loved eating out on the balcony and watching the waves come in. The beds we very comfortable! We highly recommend renting a pontoon boat and going out to crab island and watching dolphins in the bay!! We hope to stay in this condo again!!

Wonderful vacation site for all ages (especially families)
This is such an amazing place to stay for people with children. The kids loved the spray park, the lazy river, the multiple pools, going to the ocean or gathering shells at the beach on the bay across the road at the state park....and even just sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean and pool. When everyone wore themselves out, we came back to the condo and enjoyed family movie night with microwaved popcorn. This room is in a perfect location. If you want to grill on their grills, just hop on the elevator and go toward the ocean...there are charcoal grills available for everyone's use. This place is amazing! David is great to rent from. Any problems you have, he is on top of them immediately. We had a faucet leak, and no kidding, I didn't time it.... but I believe the repairman had it fixed within an hour of contacting David. Great place to stay. P.S. Highly recommend: walking on the beach to the pier--beautiful scenery; call ahead to Fudpuckers and cross the pedway and pick up a to-go order for dinner to eat back at the condo; MUST-DO--True Blue Pontoon Rentals--wow--an amazing day for the family--(David has info in rental packet)everyone will love it!

Great location and amenities
We had a great vacation here at Destin West. The condo was clean, fluffy towels, comfy beds and firm pillows. Nice deck that overlooks the pool and beach was a great place to have coffee in the morning. The Lazy River and heated pool were a short walk to the other building and the beach was an even shorter walk. The condo itself was the perfect size for a family of 4, there is minimal storage for clothes & suitcases though. Nicely stocked kitchen with all the appliances, pots, pans and bowls that you probably have at home. Location, location, location was wonderful!

Holiday Stay
My two daughters and I enjoyed our second stay in two years at this fantastic Destin West Condo. The amenities and location are fantastic. I would highly recommend David because of his excellent customer service and prompt follow up and this condo. We plan on doing this visit on a regular basis because we have found our "home away from home".

Great Gulf Vacation
We really enjoyed our stay. We really love the Gulf with it's beautiful beaches and water. I loved walking to the pier in the mornings. We loved that you could walk to the other side of the resort over the sky bridge. We wished we had went to Fudpuckers another night, since they were great and right across the bridge. My girls loved the huge lazy river and had a great time floating around it with their arm bands. My one complaint is the view, wish we had a better view of the Gulf. We had a great time and David has made check-in and check-out an absolute breeze.
Best condo!
We've stayed in a lot of condos over the years in this area and this one was by far the best for our family! It had everything we needed and a wonderful view! We loved the 8 pools that were available and the free beach service so we didn't have to get out early and fight for a place at the beach! We loved the location that was away from the crowded Destin, and we loved the fire works off the pier and easy access to eating places and the park on the beach near Crab Trap. David was also amazing! He was always available to answer any questions and when we had a death in the family last minute he quickly listed one of the weeks we were supposed to come and it booked and he gave us a refund for that week. He goes above and beyond for his guests! Thank you!
Just as advertised!!
We had a GREAT time on our vacation. I highly recommend this condo to anyone considering a stay at the Destin West. This second floor unit had everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable vacation. It was located in a wonderful spot that allowed you to use the stairs when the elevator was in high demand. Having a beach chair set up made going down to the beach hassle free. We will definitely return!!
Family vacation
Destin West was a great place for a multi family vacation. We were able to stay in one building or at the ajoining Ramada. The pool by us was large and we spent a lot of time there. There are other pools available as well as the lazy river. We did have to fight for a table everyday and it would be nice if there were a few more tables but you could probably never have enough. I appreciated that the managers would come out and move towels off a table if no one used it for a couple of hours so you could not throw towels there and then head to the beach for the morning. This unit offered free beach chairs and that was great. There is easy access to Destin but you can find what you need in Fort Walton and avoid the big crowds in Destin. The unit was plenty big for 3 of us but the bunk beds are clearly designed for children and not very comfortable for adults. The descriptions are accurate. I would highly recommend this unit and Destin West and we intend to use it again.
Amazing !!!
This condo was absolutely perfect . You can't go wrong staying here everything we needed was there the space was perfect for our family. The area has a lot to offer and you really don't need to drive anywhere once you are there. Fudpucker's was just a walk across the bridge and the food was very tasty they also had an arcade so my kids were entertained (a little tip eat at the back bar area then you don't need to wait for seating). The boardwalk was so close we walked there daily for fishing and dinner multiple dining options and all were fabulous even seen the fireworks at the beach on Wed night ! And I almost forgot the Gulfarium it was such a nice place seen the dolphin show and the sea lion show both were great and being that it's small not a bad seat in the place. The beach service was the perfect touch we could come and go far from the beach without losing our spot. The pool was roomy and never felt crowded on the gulf side. We even went to the other pool for half a day it too was very nice floating around the lazy river. We did venture to the Harbor Walk Village which was very cool lots of shops and dining options. While we were there we did the Sea Blaster dolphin cruise I highly suggest it great people made the cruise entertaining. We hope to be back next year for more relaxation and fun !
Excellent location and inexpensive stay
This is my sixth visit at Destin West and It was very good as always.
FANTASTIC family vacation spot - will come again and again!
I loved this condo! The view of the gorgeous pool and ocean right off of our balcony was wonderful. The furniture and bedding was clean and very comfortable. Loved having a full kitchen (with everything you would need) and a washer / dryer right in the condo. The kids (ages 7 and 13) loved the bunks and having their own full bathroom. I loved the master bedroom. The pools and lazy river were great, but the best thing was having our own dedicated chairs and umbrella waiting for us on the beach each day. We were able to walk to dinner 6 out of the 7 nights. We walked on the beach at sunset, and when we walked on the Pier we saw someone catch a 7" Black tipped shark! I've already booked for next year - can't wait to return. The owners and cleaning crew are fantastic - the condo was pristine! David treated us like family and offered to get us discounts on adventures and recommendations for places to eat. Best vacation ever!
Great spring break location for a family of 4.
Great location and views of the ocean! Our family would stay here again! Loved how we could walk to the bay side within 5 minutes, using the skywalk! The owner was great to work with and gave excellent ideas for dining! The beds were very comfortable!
We would choose this again!
Awesome fitness center, he let us check in a couple hours early, beach was super close, friendly people, only couple minute drive to Destin, and we thought Fort Walton was beautiful!! Cannot wait to bring my family back! Our kids loved all the amenities of the condo. Pools, Lazy river, hot tub, and splash pad. We have already been spreading the word.

Awesome condo for the entire family!
We had a great time! Condo was nice with nice amenities.

My two daughters and I enjoyed our second stay in two years at this fantastic Destin West Condo. The amenities and location are fantastic. I would highly recommend David because of his excellent customer service and prompt follow up and this condo. We plan on doing this visit on a regular basis because we have found our "home away from home".
Would go back!!!!
I enjoyed my stay. The condo is very nice and colors are very relaxing. The mattress in the master bedroom is great. It has all you need. The property is very well kept. Someone cleaning outside areas everyday. My first time to Ft Walton Beach and would go back. People are friendly and it is easy to get around. David is great to work with, he always called back and concerned I was comfortable.
I've already booked again for next year!!
I LOVE this condo and location!! The condo is beautiful and had everything that I needed. The beds were great, and the pillows were brand new and excellent. It was like a home away from home. I especially loved the chairs on the beach that comes with the rental - it was so nice not having to fight for space on the ocean. We had a couple of rainy days, but that didn't stop us - with the heated pool that has some cover from the weather, my daughter and I played all morning and didn't even notice the weather! There are so many pools to choose from, everything about this place is excellent. David recommended the Pirate adventure and my 8 year old loved it - my 14 year old even had fun :-) We also walked to the Boardwalk every night for dinner - Crap Trap and Rockin Tacos are awesome! This is, by far, the best vacation my family has gone on - I am coming back next year!
The condo has a great view of the beach and pool. It had nice patio furniture and the interior was decorated nicely. Even though we were very close to the pool the noise was never an issue. The tv in bunk room didn't work and the cable wasn't working in the living room but we enjoyed watching shows in the evening on Hulu. The owner did offer to have the tv situation repaired but it was not a big deal to us. I would recommend this condo!!
Very nice Resort for relaxing
Once we worked out a few issues with the cleaning crew we enjoyed our stay. The owner of the condo was very helpful in resolving the cleaning issues. The cleaning crew manager arrived about an hour after contacting the owner with new sheets and he was very apologetic about the problem. He mentioned the person cleaning this condo was new and that he should have checked before our arrival. At that time we arranged for them to come back the next day to do a full cleaning of the condo. The filtered water dispenser on the refrigerator didn't work. A maintenance person looked it over and said that it was broken, but didn't mention if it would be fixed before we left. The price rate for this condo is very good. I gave it 4 stars because of the cleaning that was not preformed before our arrival. The Destin West Beach & Bay Resort complex is our favorite location to stay. We will keep this condo in mind for our next trip. Hopefully the cleaning crew will do a better job next time. Maybe we can get a discounted rate for our troubles.
Beautiful vacation
Everything about this vacation was perfect. The condo was adorable, comfy, inviting, relaxing. It had everything we needed to stay in and make all our meals. All the beds were super comfortable. We loved the resort, the pool was awesome and being able to look over it from our balcony was nice.
It was our second year in this exact same unit we love it . The pool is beautiful and the beach is just steps away. And so is just about everything you may want to do. And not to worry if the weather is not sunny there is still plenty to do!
Beautifully decorated, all the essentials
When you first walk in you realize the owners have down a great job with decorating. The master bed is very comfortable. Clean and has all the essentials needed. Fun place with the beach and many pools. The owner checked on us to make sure we were happy with the condo. Would definitely stay here again.
Best Place to Vacation!
As always Destin West was great! This was my 5th year staying here and its hard for me to go anywhere else. I have never tried going thru VRBO but now that I have I will be doing again. The listing description was very accurate. The property is always clean and well maintained. The Owner was great, anything you needed, he was quick to respond to you. I would highly recommend this property to my friends and family. We will be looking at this place again next year. Beach Service was great, we were at the beach everyday, its nice having the service, you don't have to carry any chairs or an umbrella, just your cooler and beach bag. Every year that we are in Destin, we always eat at McGuire's Irish Pub , its a must!, The Back Porch is another good place to eat and of course the Crust Pizzeria. We just love coming here, Thanks again David!
It was a great location and we enjoyed our stay.
The property was beautifully landscaped, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved walking along the beach every morning.
