We had a wonderful spring break getaway. The kids loved all the fun things to at the resort. Restaurants and shopping walking distance. Absolutely gorgeous! This was our second trip and will be back... :)
Great visit with our son - stationed at Eglin aFB

The condo was beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. It is also in a great location. The views from both patios are breathtaking. The owners were wonderful to work with as well as Compass Resorts. This was our first time to Ft. Walton. We came to visit our son who is stationed at Eglin aFB. Kitchen was well stocked as well as plenty of towels and washcloths. We would definitely recommend this condo and hope to be back soon!
Very nice time.

We had a great time this was the first time we have ever gone
to the beach in the fall. It was very different from what we were
accustom to, no children running around and very quite. It was really
kind of spooky. It took us sometime to get adjusted but once we did
enjoyed our stay completely and hoping we are able to return next year.
I should probably add that we have stayed in this same rental three times
it feels like home away from home. We are very comfortable here and love it.

The condo was wonderful! The grounds were awesome with the lazy river, hot tub, and pools. Smart collection of books, if you're into reading, and the balcony was a treat the whole time.

Our stay at Destin West Sand Piper 401 was as great as our first time!! The unit is well equipped and accessible to everything. We would definitely come back again!

This was the best condo in the 4 years we stayed at Destin West.

The owner was very pleasant. The condo was ready when we arrived. This was the 4th summer we stayed at Destin West Resort. This by far was the best condo we have stayed at. It was very clean and well organized for our stay. Everything was perfect. Hoping to rent it again next year.
Great family vacation!!

It was easy, relaxed, and uncomplicated.

We were impressed with the feeling of home the location created while at the same time having a resort atmosphere. It is a well maintained facility and offers easy access to all ammenities. The location is great for getting to Ft. Walton or Destin. We would definately come back again.
Family friendly resort with the luxuries of home.

Our family really enjoied our short stay at Destin West. Convient location, walking distance to the beach. The online photos represented the resort perfectly. Very nice and clean. Our condo was comfortable and equipt with the items we needed to make our stay very memoriable. Only downfall...we had to request our pool passes and parking passes twice. And we didn't get them until late on the 2nd day of our stay. Other than that, it was over all a great vacation!
Great Condo/ Terrible CVS from Compass Resort Staff
Left on 08/19/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | The Hurricanes
I called and booked our same condo back on May 22 2011, did not recieve any paperwork nor email from Compass Resort. The day before our departure Liz from Compass Resort left a message saying that she had tried to contact us. (This was the first time we had heard from anyone) My husband faxed all the signed forms that day and got a confirmation that the fax went through and was recieved. Every time we called Compass Resort got voicemail. On the way to our vacation destination we had to call the owner, because we still had not spoken with anyone in order to get our key code. Compass called my husband and said they did not recieve the fax, and for us to drive across Destin from where we were staying to hand it to her. My husband told her he would refax from our Condo. Staff unacommodating and unorganized. Not one did anyone apologize for the inconvenience.

It was nice. The lazy river was great for our eight-year old. But, carting everything to the beach was a chore since we were on the bay side. I think we'd pay the extra to be on the gulf front side next time.
Mt. Vernon, IN
Left on 03/30/2011 for a stay in March 2011 | Mimi
The condo was very nicely appointed, and was arranged so that the small apartment seemed larger. Liked the fact that there was a chest in the bunk room. Might note to owner that the beautiful chest in the entry needs to be anchored. Our eight year old granddaughter opened a drawer to store her belongings, and it fell on her. She was only a small bruise on her leg, but I pictured a toddler pulling up to it, and the same happening. Safety bars in the main bath would be helpful for the elderly. Overall, it was a lovely condo and we would return to it.

Only view we had from our balcony was of just Palm Tree's. Both televisions very small and only one remote control worked for one television. People that stayed in rooms above,next to and in general "all around" stayed up all night drinking, fighting, cursing. Not teenagers but adults! I have a 10 year old son that does not need to be exposed to "Adults Gone Wild" in Destin for a family vacation!We have been staying at Destin West since it was built, and this was the only time we have experienced such.

We really enjoyed our condo at Destin West Sandpiper with the Lazy River, pools, and access to Ramada and their pools and beach across the street. It rained too much, but who can control that. We were already planning next year's vacation before we left. The lock changed before the 10am check out time, but my contact quickly returned my call and got me back in.
great condo, great pools, great beach
Left on 05/19/2010 for a stay in May 2010 | charissa
We stayed here May 2010, on the bay side. Had to walk across the pedway to get to the beach, which was ok. Pools were great, many to choose from, lazy river was nice. Condo was nice, had everything we needed. Balcony floor was dirty, and the front door was drafty/whistled, when the wind blew hard. Otherwise, no complaints. Would stay here again.
Third time's a charm
Left on 08/12/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | Virginian
this was our third stay at DW and this condo was the
best one yet. everything an upgrade. all the
furnishings were as great as the weather. great
appliances and kitchen ware. My son loves the leather
sofa. Just one suggestion, put slides on the coffee
table, that book/movie collection inside makes
moving it every night to get to the sleeper
inconvenient for bad backs. Daughter loved the
colorful bunk room.

Destin West Sandpiper 401 was a beautiful, very comfortable condo with a great view. Location on 98 is good with lots of restaurants close by. This was our 2nd time to stay at Destin West. Unfortuantly, when we arrived, check in was extremely difficult and no one would help us. Apparently there are approx. 7 different management companies that manage this property. So the main office at Destin West would not help us check in. We had no idea how to get in to our condo, which reduced me to tears. We were 12 hours from home with no place to stay. I went to the "association" office on the 2nd floor and the lady there was very kind and called Liz at Compass Resorts. She was also very kind and gave me the code to get in to the condo. We did not have this problem a year ago when we checked in. So my suggestion is to definitely know who is managing the condo you are renting and make sure you have exactly what you need to check in. Also, I don't think the cleaning company for either condo that we have rented earns their money. Both years we have found things such as cookies under the couch, hair in the bathtub, etc. indicating that the do not do a thorough job. I would definitely go back to Destin West, but I will make sure before I leave exactly who is caring for the property and exact instructions on how to check in (pool passes, parking pass, entrance code, etc.)

We had a great time on Okaloosa Island. The condo suited our needs and my
family especially loved the pool area, which was the reason we chose this
place. We also played at the kids splash pad and it was a lot of fun. The
entrance to it was attached to the Ramada Inn so that was a little confusing.
The staff was very helpful during our stay. Overall it was a great experience
and we would go back.
Left on 07/01/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | Beach Family
Destin West, Sandpiper 401 is a great family spot. We all loved the lazy river, the pools and the kids activities. The condo decor was perfect for a beach vacation and had everything we needed. It was our home away from home since we were there for two weeks. The landscaping was beautiful and the grounds were always clean. The views were unbelievable as well. We had an ocean view from one balcony and the bay and lazy river view from another. It is such an easy walk to the beach. Everything is right there. We will definitely be returning renters!
Our only complaint is that the code we were given to enter upon arriving did not work and the carpets definitely needed cleaning. But we will still return:)
Don't Plan for an Early Arrival on the Weekend!
Left on 06/17/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | Neyland86
Service - Disappointing, we were told by Compass to call when we arrived 'early' for our condo on Sunday. We called to get an answering machine, left message and got callback 1 1/2 hours later. Compass could not help because they were 'out of the office'. Destin West rental ended up helping more than Compass.
Home - Sandpiper 401 is one of our best rentals ever, awesome unit, beautiful views and easy access to the gulfside!
Location/Amenities - Lazy river was the family favorite, we spent a lot of time in there!
Best/Worst - Destin West Beach & Bay is a wonderful place to vacation and we plan on returning next year. Service from Compass Resorts was the most disappointing part of the trip.

We had three adults and one child and had plenty of room. We had a good view of the bay and the pools. The master room was plenty big and it was very quiet. The home was decorated very good and made you feel at home. The kitchen was fully stocked. My mom and other family stayed in another condo at this resort and their's was not as nice and it was a three bedroom condo. I would highly recommend staying at this condo and will request it again. They have a washer and a dryer in the condo which is very nice to be able to do laundry after going to the beach. It has a clean feel and a relaxing atmoshere.
Great little slice of paradise!

I stayed at this property with my husband and daughter, my mom, and my brother and sister-in-law. It was spacious enough for us all to be comfortable. We definitely enjoyed the lazy river and pools/hot tubs. The view of the bay was beautiful and relaxing. We took full advantage of the fully stocked kitchen, as we are cookers, and only came across one thing we needed and didn't have (9x13 pyrex dish) but we made do. One thing I loved about the community is it seemed to be mostly families there. I would definitely recommend this place as the staff, amenties, and overall experience were all wonderful.
Spring Break Vacation
Left on 04/22/2009 for a stay in April 2009 | Mom
This was our first trip to the Florida panhandle. We would definitely do it again. Our accommodations were better than we imagined. There was plenty of room for 3 people in our one bedroom condo. Our son loved the bunk bed. We enjoyed floating down the lazy river as well as jumping the waves in the Gulf of Mexico. The view from our balcony was memorizing.
Left on 10/28/2008 for a stay in July 2008 | Mindy
The property was wonderful, clean, convienant and worth the trip. We enjoyed our stay. Would definetly rent again.
Perfect Family Escape
Left on 10/23/2008 for a stay in July 2008 | kathy
My family usually stays at hotels when we go on vacation. We decided to give this condo a try in July.- Wow!! Were we impressed!!! The condo was even better than we could have imagined from reading prior reviews. The condo was spacious and very clean/the decor was tastefully done! We especially appreciated the leather sectional-very comfy!We enjoyed the views from both balconies. The lazy river view was great! We will definitely be back again next year!!
Very pleasant stay
Left on 10/16/2008 for a stay in August 2008 | Hal Pruitt
We had a wonderful stay at Destin West. We found Compass Resorts to be very pleasurable to work with. They accomodated in us in every way and even suggested this unit for our small family. It rained for 2 1/2 days was our only complaint and no one could help that. Very clean, very nice condo. Would definitely stay there again.
