Grab popsicles for the kids and a cold brew for yourself. By the time you make the short stroll to your little slice of paradise in the sand, they’ll still be chillin’. (And the popsicles and beer, too! ;)

Welcome to Gulfside 404 is your home away from home at the luxurious Destin West Beach & Bay Resort. Besides its incredible oceanfront location -- practically a stone’s throw from the sugar white sand of the gorgeous Gulf shoreline -- this fourth-floor unit with its wraparound balcony and stunning views of the aqua blue waters of both the sea and pool is just what the doctor ordered for truly unwinding. Aquatherapy just doesn’t get any better than this. Gulfside 404 is a jewel among condos at Destin West … so perfect for hangin’ at the beach with (or without?) the kids, counting waves, building sandcastles, people watching, snacking or just lazing around for a change. Hey … it’s vacation, after all!


Not that kicking back is the ONLY thing to do at Destin West. If you haven’t been here before, TRUST us when we say that the amenities on both bay and Gulf sides are incomparable. (And that’s not counting the local area attractions we’ve listed below.) Destin West is a veritable oasis of pools, palm trees, Jacuzzis and, the Piece de resistance … a continually flowing, 700 foot-long tuber’s dream called the “Lazy River” located just across the sky bridge. It’s just that, at Destin West Gulfside 404 -- and we know this may come as a shock -- YOU get to decide whether to spend the day with your feet in the sand … or surf. Stretched out in a beach chair … or floating, in a donut-shaped pillow, around the 700ft lazy river. Taking a short walk to a restaurant for a bite to eat … or cruisin’ on back to your condo to grab a sandwich and head back out to the beach. Lazing around, or going snorkeling … the choice is always up to you. How cool is that?


Leave your shoes -- and your cares -- at the door and step inside your roomy, three-bedroom, two-bath condo with its amazing views of the sugar white beach, turquoise waves, and the spectacular pool, and you’ll immediately know you’re home. Tastefully appointed in comfortable and stylish furnishings, the coastal hues pay homage to what’s outside, Gulfside 404 is your perfect family getaway. The master suite, which has its own private door to the wraparound deck, houses a beachy-chic, king-sized bed all decked out in premium linens and with a comfortable mattress for that all important great night’s sleep. The master also has a chair that convert into a twin sleeper just in case you need room for one more. 

Getting ready for dinner out is a breeze in the adjoining master bath with double vanities, separate shower and a sumptuous garden tub. The tastefully appointed guestroom with adjoining second bath and queen bed also sports premium linens and mattress, in keeping with the theme of comfort. Tucked away from the adult space, the colorful kids’ bunkroom is ideal for coaxing weary sandcastle architects to sweet, blissful sleep. And, of course, each room has its own flat screen TV to meet a variety of entertainment preferences, from cartoons to sports to HGTV and beyond.  Please note that the bunk room TV plays DVDs only, but we have a library of great movies provided.

The living room offers a queen sleeper sofa (the condo sleeps up to eight guests), DVD player and a large HDTV for family movie night. Free wireless internet lets you post your vaycay photos for all your friends and family to envy. A fully equipped kitchen (should you actually feel inclined to cook) features a side-by side refrigerator equipped with water and ice, dishwasher, oven with smooth-top range and a built-in microwave (for microwave popcorn … and meals … yes, vacation is all about ease). A coffee maker, toaster and blender round out our well-appointed kitchen, so you can enjoy your morning smoothies with coffee and a bagel. We didn’t forget the washer and dryer, either. Hey, it’s less to pack … just bring your swimsuits and flip flops. We also stashed beach chairs and an umbrella in a rolling cart for easy transfer to the beach. 


The resort’s list of amenities is almost embarrassing, they’re so luxurious. With offerings like a 5,000 square-foot swimming pool, kid-friendly zero-entry (aka beach) pool, two giant Jacuzzis, winter-heated waterfall pool, and the region’s largest lazy river, you’ll have to be very intentional to have anything less than a perfect day. The resort’s private footbridge makes for safe, easy transit between the pristine, white-sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico’s Choctawhatchee Bay, and the bay side with its Lazy River and unparalleled amenities. Rent boogie boards, sea kayaks, or jet skis; sign the kids up for resort activities; and sweat off Florida’s epicurean delights in the state-of-the-art fitness center. 

As if that weren’t enough, Destin West is walking distance to a slew of activities the likes of which you won’t find anywhere else. The Boardwalk and fishing pier, Fudpuckers, The Gulfarium, and The Ramada Palaza are all a short walk from the Resort. As a guest with us, you always have full access to all of the amenities at the Ramada Plaza Resort, including the famous Grotto Pool with swim-up bar. Or, if you prefer to go exploring, Okaloosa Island offers miles of Gulf and Bay beaches that are perfect for outdoor adventures.

Yes, without a doubt, Destin West Resort is one of the most family-friendly, well serviced, and upscale locales on the island. Ready to book it now? Weeks fill up quickly … consider yourself forewarned. ;)

We loved it here!
We stayed here for 9 nights, and would LOVE to have stayed for 9 more! Everything was perfect. The view is great, beds are super comfortable, kitchen is well-stocked, the patio furniture is nice and sturdy (unlike the cheap, flimsy outdoor furnishings we've had in other condos)...literally everything is great, down to the decor and the size & quality of the Tvs. David was super nice and easy to work with, and we will definitely rent from him in the future.
Home away from home!
The minute you walk through the door, you feel at home. The condo was beautifully decorated with warm colors and beach decor. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The kitchen was equipped with all the needed appliances to cook a feast fit for a king all the way down to a simple piece of toast. The condo was spacious enough for our family of seven to feel comfortable and not crowded. We were walking distance of the beach, pool, beach bar, lazy river, many restaurants, and even a gift shop. The bedrooms were very welcoming and were so cozy that even miles away from home you felt relaxed and comfortable once you laid in bed for the night. The TV's in each room was a great added bonus so everyone could watch what they liked once tucked in for bed. The master bath, as well as the jack and jill bath, were beautifully decorated. The beach cart, chairs, sand toys, float, and umbrella came in handy for a day at the beach. The free beach service was a treat. The pool and hot tub were a great way to unwind after sitting on the beach all day, being able to lay out across the sand and return to wash off and take a dip in the pool as well as the hot tub made the entire day just tie together perfectly. Family members who came to visit were envious of our beautiful and welcoming place. Having a washer and dryer in the condo was very useful. It was very kind of Mr. Jenn to supply us with 2 roles of paper towels, 4 roles of toilet paper, 2 laundry pods, 2 dish washing pods, 1 sponge, dish liquid, and several trash bags to get us through the week. The extra pillows and blankets in the closet came in handy. I have to say that Mr. Jenn thought of everything. We will definitely be returning next year. My family and all who came to visit thank you for the wonderful, beautiful, and welcoming place. It truly felt like a home away from home.
Best Vacation EVER!!
The property was beautiful and so relaxing. Our granddaughter called it our new house...that is exactly what it was...home for 7 days. It felt like home. We loved the location in that we were close to everything we wanted to see and do, without being crowed. The beach was so clean and beautiful. The kids either wanted to be at the beach or at the pool. Our condo was so warm and inviting providing the perfect place to relax and unwind. The food, activities, and activities were amazing. It is a wonderful place to bring the entire family. Many of the activities were in walking distance of the condo. We will be returning and staying at Destin West Gulfside again. We HIGHLY recommend considering Destin West Gulfside as your family vacation destination. The Townsends
Beautiful, well maintained, great location!
We had a great time is this beautiful condo. So nicely decorated, a joy to stay in. Destin West is a ton of fun with so many things to do including planned events for the younger ones!
Great Vacation
We booked our condo with David. He was very helpful and responded to me very quickly. We were thankful that he also provided a pack n play for the baby (one less thing to pack). We had 17 family members in 3 different condos. It was a great family vacation. The condo had great furnishings, comfortable beds and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The complex was fantastic. The kids loved all the pools (not to mention the movie at the pool), lazy river, and the fountains provided by the Ramada. The beach was clean, and very nice staff working with the chair and umbrella set up. We were able to see dolphins from our patio and the fireworks from the pier where some of the best we have seen. There is so much to do in and around Ft Walton. We rented a pontoon in the bay. The kids enjoyed the Pirate Cruise, Mardi Gras parade and local amusement areas. My favorite restaurant was Dewey's (both on the bay and harbor side). We look forward to returning to Destin West and working with David in the future.
Best of Destin West!!
This condo is decorated beautifully. It has pottery barn bedding, beautiful blue patio furniture, fully stocked kitchen with a margaritaville machine, a cart and 3 ocean chairs in the unit. We needed nothing additional in our weeks stay here. It was absolutely perfect. No detail was over looked. The view to the Atlantic is perfect from here. This is by far the nicest unit I have stayed in at Destin West. The owner is fabulous to work with. He is very quick to respond to any request or concern you may have. This was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to stay here again!
Destin West Beach Side #404
I almost hate to write this review because I want to keep this one to myself. The more people that find out about this gem is going to interfere with my ability to rent this one again. This location was perfect for us. The beach and pool view was awesome. We are no strangers to Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. This is an annual vacation destination for us. We usually stay in the beach facing condos and this time we thought we would change up and try one of the beach and pool view condos. We really lucked up with this one and found the perfect spot, the best of both worlds. The layout is one that we were already use to so that was a bonus. It accommodates 4 adults and 4 kids comfortably. The owner was great and easy to deal with. There is really just nothing negative to say about this rental and it's location. Please don't be a condo hog, we would like to go back.
Destin West Gulfside 404 - AMAZING
This condo was absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed! David was great to work with and made it very easy to reserve this awesome room!
Great Vacation. Everything I hoped for and more.
I took my kids and grandkids the second week of June and it was wonderful. I have stayed on Okaloosa before and also Panama City and this was our favorite. The resort is very clean and safe. The pools were never over crowded and the beach was great. David Jenn made booking our trip easy and he is very accessible. I can't say enough and hope to go back next summer.
Great resort. Will visit again.
The condo is exactly as described. Very nice decor and extremely comfortable. The resort is very kid friendly and there are things for everybody to enjoy. David is very easy to work with and had everything in order. I will certainly rent from him again when I'm in the area.
You won't be disappointed!!
Two days before the start of our vacation I received a phone call from David, the property manager, advising me that the condo had just been upgraded with new countertops, showers and bathroom fixtures. When we arrived we were so excited to see the condo. Everything was spotless and perfect. The upgrades were beautiful. The decor is beachy and fun but not over the top. There were many designer touches yet I didnt live in fear that my kids 7, 11, 13 would break something. The bedding was very comfortable and the condo itself was quiet. I felt it was much more quiet than the Bay side where we stayed last year. Every morning about 7:30, we sat on the balcony with coffee and watched the dolphins playing just off the sandbar. This condo comes with beach service. The week we were here, the resort didn't seem to be incredibly busy, but it was so great to just be able to walk down to the beach without lugging all sorts of chairs and umbrellas, and boom... a perfect spot in the sand reserved just for you. There are also sand toys, a cart and additional chairs included. We only used the toys, because with the beach service we didn't need everything else. We thoroughly enjoyed the Margaritaville machine. Our friends also staying at the resort visited us everyday afternoon after the beach and we made slushies for the kids and fruity drinks for the adults and brought them down to the pool to enjoy another hour or so of sun before getting ready for dinner. After a week of vacation, I am always ready to go home, but not this time. I could have easily stayed another week. If you are thinking about this condo, you will not regret it. It has everything you could need or want for a perfect vacation at a beautiful beach resort.
Great condo, awesome views! My kids and I stayed here and will definitely be back! It's clean, beautiful, and has everything you need. The owners responded to all my questions before arriving within an hour. The condo really did feel like our home away from home!
We have stayed in numerous condos at Destin West, but Gulfside 404 was definitely one of the best. It has a great view and it is extremely clean and updated.
Stop your search - this is it!!
Beautiful and "homey" condo with a fantastic view of the beach and ocean. Easy access to everything- pool, beach, and even just across the bridge to the other side of the road, the lazy river and another pool. The condo is so clean and spacious, and has everything you need. Wonderful places to eat, harbor, putt-putt, shopping are right there beside you ( walking distance). It is also very short, easy drive into the main area of Destin if you so chose. We enjoyed our time here so much! This was our first time staying in this area and at this resort. Thank you so much Dave and Lisa!!!
Destin West Vacation
What a great time for the family. Great location, close to everything. Nice beach and the person in charge was tremendous! Thanks
So much to do, if you want to. So easy to just take it easy, if you prefer a relaxing vacation.
From the moment we arrived we had an enjoyable trip. This was my first trip to Florida. We were there for my sister's "Destination Wedding". The condo we stayed in was spacious, beautiful and clean. Our party rented 20 different condo units and we all visited each other. If you want a unit on the bottom floor, you give up the view that you get on the upper floors, but, you gain easy access to the pool/hot tub. You also get a little patio which holds more people than the balcony. Bring a couple of extra lawn chairs if you want to all enjoy your coffee on the patio in the mornings. Unit 116 had the largest patio and gave us the opportunity to get together there. The pool and hot tub are clean and the little kiddies enjoyed the kiddie pool and the splash pad. The condos are a great way to enjoy some family fun time. This was my first VRBO rental, but, it won't be my last. Thanks for a memorable trip!! * * * * * (five stars)
Where do I begin? The condo is perfect in every way and the owners are some of the nicest people you could ever meet. The resort has so many amenities and was perfect for family vacation (my toddlers LOVED the splash pad). We always felt safe and taken care of during our stay. I don't even have to tell you how perfect the water and sand are. We plan to go back next year for sure!
Love this place!
We stayed in a different unit than usual this year because the one we normally rent was booked. Loved this one even more! Very nicely decorated. Weather wasn't the best this year due to Irma but that's the chance you take. Enjoyed our stay none the less and will likely be back next year.
Had a great stay.. Beautiful condo!
One small hiccup, but was taken care of quickly. Would rent from again.
Well Decorated, Comfy Condo
On first entering the condo I was happy to find the pics matched the condo perfectly. It was beautifully decorated & the view was amazing.

After settling in we found the condo to have everything we needed to feel at home & the master bedrooms bed was unbelievably comfortable. So much so our own bed at home is a little disappointing now. And they did not overlook making your day at the beach comfortable as well. The beach cart they provided made getting to the beach easy and held chairs, toys, towels, bags and even had an ice chest attached to it so you could pretty much stay the whole day without a worry. And the boogie boards, beach toys and extra beach chairs make packing for the trip super easy. Plus the beach service made it even easier; just let them know what days you want chairs and they will have it ready for you. They were also kind enough to offer to call the lifeguard to drive a member of our party with some mobility restrictions to the chair if needed. Though thankfully he was able to make it because the chairs were close enough to the ramps to make it accessible. Which if you have a family member with disabilities the whole resort was very handicap friendly.

Location wise you were able to be on the beach, at the pool, jacuzzi, splash pad, gym or grill area within 5 minutes or less. And you were within a short walking distance to resteraunts (Rocking Tacos was amazing!!) & the bay side of the resort which provided shelter from the wind on super windy days. Plus the beach bar at the hotel next door which you will have access too had amazing beverages & was a 2 min walk when down on the beach or pool. Pro tip— try the Rum Runner, the punch bucket and don't feel any shame in relaxing within the gated splash pad while the kids run wild. Sometimes parents need to not worry about sand and surf. ;) And your just down the road from some of Destin and Fort Walton's best resteraunts.

But the best part of this condo was the kindness and availability of the property manager David Jenn. He answered all our questions, was quick to respond & made sure that we were satisfied throughout the whole stay. Which is a blessing to a family that desperately needs a relaxing vacation!!

Overall I'd say this condo is the perfect pick for a family wanting fun for the kids and some adult fun for themselves as well.
