Best Place to Stay on Okaloosa Island



The condo's at Destin West are absolutely wonderful! The premises are clean, safe, and are conveniently located to all of the best places on Okaloosa Island. The condo is located on the bay side and offers a wonderful swimming pool and lazy river. Your literally just steps away from the bay or about a 2 minute walk across the road to the Gulf, white sand beaches, and The Boardwalk and Pier. It's my family's favorite place to stay in the Ft Walton/Destin area. The proximity to all of the most popular attractions, condo amenities, and the outstanding customer service keep us coming back.

Great family vacation!



Our check-in was so easy and our room was great! Our room was clean and there was plenty of space for the 7 of us! The view from our room was even better than we expected. We love staying on the bayside with the lazy river and getting in the bay to look for hermit crabs, crabs, shrimp and more! After our 10 hour drive home, our daughter realized she left her tablet. I called and housekeeping had found it, they shipped it to us immediately and it arrived in about 5 days! Everyone I spoke to was so nice and helpful!

Destin West Sandpiper #402- Beautiful resort!

Amanda H.


What a beautiful resort! Our family loved our condo, beach, and pool! With a close place to grill it was just like home!

Homey and convenient!

Jim K.


Great place to stay. Clean and well maintained! Easy access to various parts of the property with codes, no cards to carry or worry about. Close to restaurants and stores. It was like staying in a 2 bedroom apartment with everything you need but no noise from the neighbors. Best part is free parking and wifi! I’m a believer that If I pay to stay at a place, parking should be free, and these guys do it right! The App is super easy and informative. My early checkout option didn’t work for some reason though. Highly recommend to anyone! This is much better than a hotel.

Wonderful room and beautiful view

Marcy S.


Room was wonderful. Beautiful view from balcony and lots for kids to do things. Only complaint would be to have more information on beach chairs on beach not being able to use without paying.

Wonderful family vacation



We stayed here the first week of august 2012, and the actual condo is prettier in person than it is online. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay (except for potholders, which we bought a couple and just left there for the next person). We love this resort because of all of the great pools for the kids and the beautiful beach on the gulfside along with the boardwalk, pier and restaurants that are within walking distance. It is great not having to drive much unless you just want to. The only two drawback of this particular unit are that with it being on the 4th floor the balony is exactly even with the tops of the palm trees so they block the view more than if you stayed either one floor higher or lower, but this was not a big deal just something we didn't expect; the other thing was being on the bayside, it can be quite a hike to the beach if you have alot of things that you want to take with you. If you go lite it will be fine, but it if you are taking a bunch of umbrellas & chairs or a canopy and cooler along with a bunch of toys that kids need it can really be a little bit of a hassle. Overall though the condo was wonderful and we loved it. I would still recommend it to a friend and would stay there again. Thank you.

Great way to end a 4 year vacation dry spell :)

The Brantleys


My family and I stayed here during the first week of June 2012. It was our first vacation in 4 years and the condo blew us away. The place was super clean and equipped with everything that a vacationer could need. The lazy river was by far the most popular thing among the kids. We definitely would love to make a return trip sometime in the near future.

Good Value and Good Location



Kids love the pools and lazy river. The grounds are kept neat and clean. Plenty of room for our group of 7 with one child sleeping on the sleeper sofa. Kitchen had lots of utensils, dishes, pans, etc. Washer & dryer are small and stacked but worked fine for a 7 day stay, other than the lint filter almost gone (a small thing). Mattresses were very comfortable & I think we are picky about that. Overall a good place to stay and we will go back.

DestinWest-Great Place,Sandpiper #402-Great Condo

Mimi and Family's Great vacation


Our stay at Destin West and Sandpiper #402 was perfect. We really enjoyed the Bay side with young children. The Lazy river and pool was everyone's favorite. The beach was clean and well supervised with lifeguards on duty. The Condo was clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We would definitely stay their again.

Great time!

I have stayed at Destin West with Dale E. Peterson, on three different occasions. I have 4 children, and when we say we are going to Florida, they say they want to stay with the "Lazy River." They love being on the bayside, and catching hermit crabs and fishing in the bay. The beach is not a long walk, and I love the bridge across the road. We have previously stayed during the summer months, which is much more crowded. I loved going in the fall. The weather was perfect, and there we not nearly as many people in the lazy river, or at the beach. The negative would be that the televisions need updating in the room. There were lines across the screens, and they were very old. We are there to relax, and part of that was to watch t.v., and they were almost unwatchable. Also, the clothes dryer is getting old! We stayed in the same unit 2 years ago, and it was fine, but I think it is time for a new one.

Awesome (as my kids would say)

"Completely Satisfied"


We stayed at the Sandpiper and we have three children 4, 12,& 16. They loved the lazy river. We went to the beach a few times but the lazy river is were we always ended up. It was nice being on Fort Walton Beach away from the crazy Destin area. The walk to the beach (I had read from many was a bit long) but not in my opinion. I liked the exercise and the kids didn't mind it at all. the white sandy beaches are beautiful and the walk on the pier was eventfull. We saw dulphins, stingrays and several fisherman. We cooked many meals at the condo but also ate out a few times (expensive!) We will return. Don't miss out on this beatiful Condo and location.
