I am at sandestin right now and for the last 10 years it has been our go to place to stay as a family. That is no longer true. We missed last year and the changes that have taken place are horrible. First off we have always stayed in westwinds first and foremost because its right on the beach and... More

we stayed in the 15th floor penthouse. It was gorgeous. Stocked with everything you could possibly need including beach stuff. the bed was very comfortable and i was shocked at how quiet the unit was. waking up to the ocean view was amazing. watching the beach activities from the huge balcony was so much fun - we watched dolphins and...

Repeat guest to Westwinds at Sandestin. Great building, very well maintained. Unit 4744 was spacious and nicely decorated. Western view made for very nice sunsets and the spacious balcony easily accommodated our party. Condo was updated and we felt completely at home on our vacation. Have booked directly through owner and found her to be extremely accommodating and helpful. Would... More

Nice condo but for the price, I expected more. The unit we stayed (4779) in must not have been an owner property as the small conveniences were lacking, i.e. bare bones kitchen needs, no towel bars that were convenient to use in the bathrooms, very small supply of towels, etc. Overall atmosphere of the place was somewhat uptight; check in...

We stayed here in July 2014 and have never had a worse experience while on vacation. It was mid July and obviously hot outside and you were not allowed to lower the temperature of the room. After only one night the air conditioning broke in our room. It was not fixed for the rest of our stay and we could... More

Stayed at Westwinds in unit 4775 from October 26-November 1. We rented our unit from VRBO directly from the owner. We had no problems whatsoever with the rental process. Everything went as scheduled. The unit was very nice, very clean with a wonderful view from the 9th floor. The only complaint I would have at all with the room is... More

I was nervous after booking because of the recent reviews. However, we booked through My Vacation Haven for a 2 br 4th floor condo that was recently renovated - tile, granite, stainless steel etc. Had a fall special discount so paid $200 or so per night. The building and grounds were well kept and saw tons of workers refreshing things.... More

This was a great stay. Everyone has their own opinion. For me I loved it. Don't be too picky and understand vacations are not always cheap. So be prepared for some high price foods. I will be back here again. A must see and visit the properties while staying here.

We just got back from a few days at Westwinds in Sandestin, we stayed August 15 - 18. It was our first trip to Destin at all, and it was a mixed bag. The ocean was really nice one of the days we were there, with clear water and gentle waves. The other days were “yellow-flag” days where there was... More

Our recent week long visit to Westwinds @ Sandestin was a mixed bag. Our teenaged son had a blast, but he wasn't the one paying over $400.00 a night for a supposedly "top notch" destination. We leased a two bedroom condo on the 12th floor (#4803) for one week. We paid a $150.00 fee for cleaning, $45.00 fee for shuttle... More
