We have rented the same unit through VRBO for the past 7 years. The owners are great to work with and the unit is always clean. We stay on the bay side because our kids love the lazy river. The pools are nice, and we like having the bridge to cross over to the beach side. They also offer activities... More

Our condo was very dirty. Had to clean upon arrival just to be liveable. Where does the cleaning fee go that is required to be paid? Too much mold and mildew on some of the furniture. Had to be put on the back patio. Furniture was also filthy or broken. The elevator smelled of urine with no air circulating.

We have stayed in the same condo at Destin West twice. Both our Sandpiper condo and the entire complex itself are very comfortable and family friendly. When you first pull into the complex, you'll see plenty of parking in the open outdoor lot. (There is a covered garage as well, but I'm not sure if all of those spots are... More

We stay at Destin West every year. The staff is so rude now...Woody and Jennifer are the worst! The room was dirty when we arrived, so we went to gas station next door, got cleaning supplies and cleaned it before settling in. The lazy river was packed and there was never enough tubes. I think we are done staying there... More

I booked through Book-It.com, not VRBO. I didn't get to see actual pictures of the unit so I had my fingers crossed that the room would be ok. Thankfully it was. It was Sandpiper 308 on the Bay side. It was clean and not run down. Mattresses were ok. I would bring my own pillows or buy some from Wal-Mart... More

We stayed in the Villas, in Gulfside PH03. It's a penthouse and is nice and large for a 1 bedroom. It had two nice sized bunkbeds off to themselves with an adjoining bathroom, plus a huge master and a HUGE bathroom for it. The queen sofa bed also pulled out. The kitchen was nice and well stocked with cooking utensils.... More

We started going here because of the lazy river feature. We rent through VRBO and have not been disappointed in any unit we have rented. Some even come with free beach chair rental. The lazy river is on the bay side and we just cross the walkway over the road to get to the beach. It's a great family destination... More

We really enjoyed staying at this resort. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and had lots of fun at the lazy river and kiddie pool. Our unit did have really hard mattresses that were really uncomfortable. I wrapped the sham pillows in the extra sheet and used it to cushion the bed. Also, the run in the master suite would not...

This place is awesome. You will not regret your stay. I have stayed twice and equally enjoyed each time. Our view was overlooking the beautiful bay and the beach was right across the crosswalk, and the lazy river is awesome. You will never have to leave during your stay.

Heron 306 was really nice and clean. Very spacious for our family of 5 with a nice patio area. Family room was large and we loved the picnic style table. TVs didnt have HDD but we had free wifi. Considering the price I expected more things to be offered in the condo like a free beach chair service or at... More
