Amazing! Fun in the Sun

This is our second time at Destin West Resort. My wife and I love the location and everything that Destin West has to offer. The pool is wonderful and the beach is awesome! Plenty to see and do while you are in Destin/ Fort Walton. Thank you so much! What a great time!

Our family had a relaxing vacation at your condo. We loved being on the Bay side with the views. The lazy river was a huge hit as we enjoyed it every day of our stay. Our living space was roomy and nicely decorated. We had five people in our group. Ages 24 to 74 and we all had a great time. We enjoyed a Dolphin Cruise and ate out a few times. We wrote down our recommendations in the Guest Book. Thank you for opening your FL home. It was our first time on that side of Florida and we definitely want to return. The only problem we had was the washing machine knob did not want to turn properly. It was hard to use but other than that all was well. Again... thanks!

Family Friendly Waterfront Rental w/boat slip access
Our stay last week was great for my family. The location is perfect for admiring the marina and access to the beautiful beach with a furnished umbrella and chairs. Note: Do go claim your set of beach chairs very early in the week to get placed closeby to the main DW walkover. We were placed farther down near the tiki bar since we waited a few days, due to rainy days.

We have vacationed in the area over the last 15 years ranging from Orange beach to Destin. PH#4 looks to have been professionally decorated and the DW resort/grounds are very well maintained. The added bonuses for this rental: 1. Get a great burger right next door at Fudruckers. 2. Upon arrival, I was very thrilled to find a beach cart for taking over to the beach. 3. Viewing the Boardwalk fireworks across the street from the rooftop/hot tub without the headache of the peak season crowd. 4. A close-up visit on Thursday from a pod of dolphins playing in the bay - aside the Heron pool. 5. The rooftop and balcony views are ideal for a plein-air painting - so take an easel and canvas if you desire. The only suggestions I'd have might be to add a metal grill spatula to use the public grill and perhaps getting the units parking spots # in the garage.

This was our second year in a row to vacation at Destin West Bayside in the Heron, and we loved it all over again. This is our first repeat vacation and we brought my parents with us this time. We had so much fun enjoying all the amenities and getting to know other vacationers across the country staying onsite while playing in the lazy river. This is a gem of a location and Heron Penthouse 4 is the best! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful condo with us!

Very lovely place. Furnishings were comfortable. Plenty of space for family of 6. A grill on the rooftop would be a nice addition to the property.
Grounds are well maintained. Beach chairs were a plus.
Amazing week
We enjoyed an amazing week at your condo.  The view was great, the hot tub was fun, and the pool was fantastic!  We made wonderful memories at the beach that will last a lifetime.  Thank you for sharing your condo with us!  If only we could bring some of this back to Wisconsin.  Thank you!! 
Loved Staying at the Condo
We absolutely loved staying at the condo.  We have stayed in many different places and this has been the best.  It's much appreciated to have a great stock of dishes, pans, etc.  During our spring break we made some great memories at the beach, skim boarding, crabing, pool, go carts, and hanging in the hot tub and spending time with our family.  Thank you!
Lovely Condo
Lovely condo, enjoyed amenities/conveniences such as the beach cart and laundry!  Our girls had a great first time at the beach! Thanks
Great condo with a great view
We stayed here for the month of January 2019. The condo is exactly as it looks in the pictures and very spacious. The view is spectacular. I was somewhat hesitant at first to stay on the bay side as we usually stay on the gulf side, however, we were able to see both the gulf and the bay from this unit. The beds are very comfortable and everything is well stocked. Marcy was very easy to work with.
