FOR JUST A TAD MORE, OUR PREMIUM PENTHOUSE WITH PRIVATE ROOFTOP TERRACE IS SO LUXURIOUS … SO WORTH IT, YOU’LL BE SPOILED FOR ANYTHING LESS. 
(TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT, BOOKING EARLY IS STRONGLY ADVISED. ;) 

You’ve spent a lot of time seeking out just the right place to call “home” for vacation. We understand. Because we do it, too. And it’s true what they say about the early birds snatching up the one you were hoping for. It’s why you’re doing this search right now. When it comes to that well-earned reprieve … that priceless, true downtime … wouldn’t it feel good to do something really special this time around for the people you care about … including yourself? Something unexpected, even … in the absolute best kind of way? From the Kurig coffeemaker that greets you every morning with a steaming cup of perfection, to the Smart TV’s in every room (hey, even if you never turn one on, it’s nice to know they’re there), to the bubbling rooftop hot tub that wraps you in warmth under the stars at the end of the day, to the personal outdoor kitchen where fresh fish and kabobs sizzle on the grill. At Paradise Found (officially Heron PH-09 … and a covetable end unit, to boot), with its stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico, Choctawhatchee Bay, and Okaloosa Island, you’ll know immediately that you’ll never again be able to settle for anything less for so little more. 

AT PARADISE FOUND, YOU DON’T HAVE TO ACTUALLY BE A CELEBRITY TO VACATION LIKE ONE.

Celebrity or not, we can almost promise that, at the very least, every guest who enters here will FEEL like one. Our spacious, comfy, stylish end unit penthouse in the prime location of Destin West Resort, a beautiful sight day and night – with its 700-foot Lazy River, swaying palms, sugar-sand beaches and cool sea breezes – just plain dazzles the senses. Vacations come and vacations go. But here at Paradise Found, vistas of heaven are found around virtually every corner, which is why it’s so idyllic for creating memories to last a lifetime … from meals shared in the comfort of your oversized balcony which, thanks to the builder’s ingenious idea of staggered patios is remarkably intimate, to the spiral staircase that leads up to your own private rooftop terrace where you can pour a glass of bubbly, slip into your six person Jacuzzi and watch the clouds go by. How divine! With space and views this amazing, everyone will feel like a celebrity. Just bring your designer sunglasses, swimsuits and flip flops and prepare to vacay like the star you are!

INTERIOR APPOINTMENTS THIS OPULENT MAY LEAD TO DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR. BUT TRUST US, YOU’RE NOT DELUSIONAL.

Go ahead and pinch yourself … it’s all very real. While Paradise Found’s breathtaking exterior spaces will most certainly provide plenty of excuses to avoid retreating indoors, we promise that you won’t be disappointed when you do. With 1576 square feet of stylishly decorated luxuriousness, our penthouse’s interior is so inviting, so ample, even rainy days are delightful. Tastefully furnished in warm, earthy tones that echo sea and sky, and tiled throughout (except for the bedrooms, which are carpeted for luxury underfoot) Paradise Found embraces you with welcoming space, light and views that captivate and soothe from the minute you step inside. 

The master suite houses a chic, distressed wood, king sized bed all decked out in premium linens and with a premium mattress for that all important great night’s sleep. Getting ready for dinner out is a breeze in the adjoining master bath with double vanities, separate shower and a sumptuous Jacuzzi tub. The tastefully appointed guestrooms (one with its own private balcony, no less) continue the theme of five-star elegance with queen beds dressed in premium linens and mattresses as well, ensuring that every guest receives that celebrity-style pampering that is truly “Paradise Found.” A queen pull-out sofa bed in the living room and an additional queen blowup mattress, should you need it, are perfect for kids and teens, allowing Paradise Found to accommodate eight guests with more than ample space for all.

Upgrades galore, from the Smart TV’s in every room, to the full-sized washer and dryer, to the beautiful 90” distressed wood dining table (with seating for eight!), to a kitchen so well-equipped you’d half expect Rachael Ray to walk on set ... with granite counters & stainless appliances (including side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice, ultra-quiet dishwasher, Ninja blender and an over-the-range microwave … whew! … need we go on? ;) makes everything from getting ready for a night on the town to enjoying your morning smoothie, as effortless as effortless can be! And, of course, free wireless internet lets you post your vacay photos for all your friends and family to envy. ;)

COME FOR THE LAZY RIVER. COME FOR THE PRISTINE BEACH. COME FOR THE AWESOME MEMORIES. WHATEVER THE REASON … YOU’LL BE BACK.

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. Meander across the resort’s private footbridge, and you’re on a pristine, white-sand beach along the Gulf of Mexico’s Choctawhatchee Bay. 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. ;)

VACATION MEMORIES DON’T COME WITH DO-OVERS. WE’RE HERE TO MAKE SURE YOURS ARE THE SWEETEST EVER.

We know your cherished vacation time is precious to you. And we want to do everything we can to ensure your memories are as close to perfect as this side of heaven can be.

At Coastal Vibe Vacations, we believe every guest we serve has the right to a personalized vacation that’s tailored to their needs and wish lists. Every guest! Every time!

With that in mind, Paradise Found is well suited for:

• Couples or Small Families Traveling Together: If you’ve teamed up with another family for your vacation, consider assigning the couples their own private suites and letting the kids take the third bedroom and sofabed. 
• Vacationers Who Love Views: It doesn’t get much better than our incredible Choctawhatchee Bay and pool/Lazy River views!
• Lovers of Luxury: If you love vacationing in the lap of luxury, you’ll feel right at home in the penthouse, with its private rooftop hot tub and grilling station.
• Holiday Revelers: Our condo is perfect for holiday celebrations, especially Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.

We were thoroughly pleased with our whole experience. The condo was amazing, the roof top terrace was a nice extra to take advantage of. We watched the fireworks from the roof top and enjoyed the hot tub. The lazy river was a huge hit with the kids! The condo was extemely spacious and the cart of beach accessories made getting out to enjoy our vacation very easy. None of us wanted to leave to go home! Thank you for making our vacation enjoyable and relaxing, we will be back!

We have been to Ft. Walton Beach for over 30 years and this was, by far, one of the most relaxing vacations ever! Other than making a trip to the grocery and fresh seafood market, we didn't move our vehicle during our stay! Pools, beach, water activities, shops, and restaurants were all within walking distance! We prepared all but one meal in the condo alleviating waits and headaches associated with taking 3 toddlers out to eat! We were not ready to leave and can't wait to come back!

This is the second year that we have rented from David and both years it has been an awesome! His condos are always so clean and he is very prompt to get back with you and address any issues you may have. Our dryer went out a few days into the vacation and the next day we had a new dryer being installed. The view and the accommodations at Destin west are wonderful. If you are looking for a great place to stay with a owner that cares about his clients this is the place to be. Thanks again David for being so wonderful during our vacation. WE WILL BE BACK!!!!!

Awesome.....could leave it there, but gotta say the pictures do not do this condo justice- HUGE master bed and bath with walk out onto large covered patio....and then, walk up the spiral to the corner rooftop sporting a huge hot tub and wonderful grill. The views- simply to die for from up there! The condo is nicely appointed with almost everything a guest could need for a week. The beach buggy with the umbrella and chairs was an added treat and made the trip to the beach so easy. So many pools! The lazy river was perfect! Far better & bigger than we expected. There really isn't much reason to leave the resort except to pick up local fish and yummy shrimp at Sextons Seafood Market and a trip to Publix to stock up....The only downer to this trip---Avoid the Crab Trap (Crap Trap as our kids now call it!)

This was our 2nd stay at this penthouse condo. We love it and all the amenities it offers. -The beach cart and chairs save me room for packing other things we need. -The hot tub and grill on the roof are awesome, and also having access to the splash pad for the kids is perfect too. Overall just a great, fun, family friendly place to stay. We'll be back!

We rented this penthouse condo as well as the one next door to accommodate our family for a much needed vacation that included our six children, their spouses and our three grandchildren (and the 2 grandchildren that are on the way)! The place was immaculate and David was very helpful in meeting all of our needs. We had an issue with a clogged drain in the hall bathtub and within a few hours, the drain was fixed and they even re-cleaned the bathroom while they were there for the fix! This was the perfect location for our family! We enjoyed fishing off the pier and catching crabs in the bay, the lazy river and the short walk to the beach. We had the best of everything at our disposal! Thank you so much for the enjoyable vacation and we look forward to returning next year! The Osborne Family Morrow, Ohio

What a great vacation - we rented two units from David Jenn , this one and Pelican PH3Penthouse. Both Condos were just perfect for our family of 13 - they were furnished perfectly and we had everything we needed to enjoy a week from home. David was wonderful about responding back with any questions we had which made our vacation even more enjoyable. Such as what was the code to walk out on the dock - We ate in most nights and the kitchen was stocked with pots/pans etc. This unit also, has a great Hot Tub on top and how we enjoyed the lazy river -. David even made sure we had the perfect weather while we were there. David also lead us to Adventure Marina where we stored our two wave runners we brought with us - Which worked out perfectly - 7 days and approx. $85 and we had 24 hour use and could put in and out which was all included. Perfect place to store a boat if your bringing that also and only about a mile away. We also rented a Pontoon there as well for 5 hours - $200 which included the gas and spent time on Crab Island which was fun for all. The kids enjoyed the lazy river as well as the adults - only wishing we could have had a drink with us while floating but no drinks allowed - They do need to lift that restriction a little. The beach cart was really awesome and walking across to the ocean was a breeze - having chairs and umbrella and built in cooler - made the trip across the walkway so easy. The walkway across the highway is a great plus. I love the gulf side because of the lazy river - pools - Picture Perfect Then we chartered a fishing boat for 8 of the adults - for 5 hours "Just B-Cause" was the name and Capt Ken was amazing. Would recommend him and his first mate Vinney with a 5***** rating. Goggle "Just B-Cause" Left around 6:30 am went out about 18 miles - took 1 1/2 hours to get out there - fished for 2 1/2 hours - and came back with 110 keepers --- and we threw back that many - as fast as you could put the pole back in you had another catch. Of course it helps when all the females caught the biggest fish of the day.. :-) They did all the cleaning and we hauled back to the condo 110 fish - we ate fish the next two nights --- and brought the rest home. 5 ****** rating... You won't be sorry with this unit ... Thanks David
Awesome!!!

This is a beautiful property and unit. The whole property is extremely clean and well maintained. The boat slips are great, very functional. The pools were pristine. I would highly recommend Destin West to anyone planning a stay in the area, it's guaranteed to meet even the highest expectations. We cant wait to come back.
Wonderful week!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay in your condo at Destin West.. The condo was wonderful and we loved the roof top deck! The condo was in walking distance to lots of resturants and activities. The beach cart with chairs was perfect. We could fit all of our things in there! We will be calling again!

We stayed about 2 months at this great property! Loved all of the amenities: gym, pools and lazy river (although wish it was heated!). David Jenn was great to work with...very proactive and responsive. Our rooftop hot tub was the best, had an issue with the grill, but David had his handyman take care of it! Location is perfect.....close to restaurants and shopping. Beach is short walk across the skyway bridge, the condo had beach chairs, umbrella and best of all a beach cart to truck it over! Can't wait till our return next year!
Well worth the Money

12/04/2016
Condo was spacious, clean, very well furnished and the balconies and rooftop area were an added ++++ The beach was just across the road and shopping and dining were very close to the Condo, if you have young children the pools and water rides were easy to get to and very clean. The owner was very pro-active and we were given all the information we needed well before our arrival and entrance to the condo went perfectly.... Note to owner the BBQ grill igniter is not working so that made lighting the grill a difficult proposition and the only way to get good TV reception in the main area was to dis-connect the Wi-Fi (must be some quirk in system ). TV worked excellent in all bedrooms.... I would HIGHLY recommend this rental and if I go back to the area for vacation, this will the first one on my list.... Bob B.
Everything we hoped it would be

David, has an excellent property with a wonderful roof top view. The pools and Lazy river are heated giving a nice added touch. I will say the two nicest amenities.. 1. when you first arrive at Heron, they have heavy duty carts so you do not have to schlep all your stuff up to the top floor. We used 4 carts and had the car unloaded and into the PH in 12 minutes...#2. David provided a Tommy Bahama beach cart to put all your stuff in . Once again making it very convenient without having to carry everything over. As a Dad, we always try to carry the heavy bulky stuff for the family. This time I didn't have to carry anything!! Only issue we had was a red tide came in the week prior. The beaches were not so nice the first couple days until they cleaned up all the dead fish, however once cleaned..they were incredible and the water was still in the mid 70's.
very nice and quiet
Michael
12/04/2016
What a great property!! And a great condo. Very comfortable beds and seating. Very quiet end unit. Don't have to worry about anyone walking by making noise. A/c worked great and tvs in every room was nice. Price is reasonable for a 600k plus condo for sure!! There is a boat and jet ski rental next door which is in a grew location for a great boat ride and can't beat the lazy pool and numerous hot tubs including one on the roof top. Speaking of that roof top you can see the fireworks at the Destin harbor with ease. David the rental Mgr is great.
