My mom and I (Bobbie McLean) and a friend of ours Liz had a great stay. The condo was sooooo nice with the best view!!!! We thank you so much for donating your precious condo to the fund raiser for Paws. In we we got to spend New Years Eve. So thank you so much‼
Property is dated. Need renovations. Carpet should be replaced with tile; stained quite a bit. Destin West property needs repairs. Tile by pool had fallen in and had a stool placed over it. Staff was nice.

Response from the manager I thank you for taking the time to let us know about the experience you had while staying with us in unit 614 at Destin West. We truly appreciate our guests feedback so that we can continue to improve in our constant drive to provide the best in customer service for you. I am very sorry to see that there are areas of the unit that were not up to condition standards! It is because of feedback like yours that will enable us to work with the owner of this unit to be able to consider updating the carpet and the oven in the unit. However, I sincerely apologize for the condition of the shower doors and not providing dish cloths or towels. As those issues are housekeeping issues, that should not have been the case during your stay. I am wondering who you spoke to regarding the lack of towels and the condition of the shower doors. We should have brought you the towels and re-cleaned those shower doors immediately and it is disappointing to consider that we did not take care of you while you were staying with us. If there is anything that I can do for you please do not hesitate to contact me. We value our guests and I am happy to help with your next reservation to ensure that the unit you book is one that will enhance your vacation time in our beautiful area! Sincerely, Andi Hamilton
“My thoughts are spend your valuable time in another unit at Dest”
We love vacationing at Destin West Resort. This unit needs an upgrade and a heavy cleaning. I was afraid to take off my shoes to walk on the carpet in this unit. There was mold on the shower ceiling. It had been there for quiet some time. If I were the decision maker at Dale Peterson I would remove this unit from the rental properties as it reflects upon the business. Sorry.
Response from the manager Hi Ms. Key! Thank you so much for letting us know about the mold in unit 614 at Destin West. We were unaware of such a situation and I appreciate you letting us know so that we can address this. I do hope that this did not put too much of a damper on your and your sisters enjoyment while in our area. If there is anything that I can do for you please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you again and we hope that you will continue to allow Dale E Peterson Vacations to serve you for your and your family's vacation destination needs. Most Sincerely, Andie Hamilton
“Mold on the Shower Ceiling”
This unit needs TLC. There was mold on the shower ceiling. Carpet was very worn. Will not stay in the unit again.

“Destin West is a nice resort for the family.”
We stayed in unit 614 Destin West Gulfside. Furniture was worn and dated and needs attention. The carpet was nasty. However, DEP was very accommodating and sent cleaners to clean the carpet. Had trouble with the WiFI and unit was not as clean as expected. The first afternoon was spent trying to correct irregularities. After that, we enjoyed our stay. The views were remarkable and family activities enjoyable.
“Unit 614 was kind of worn out”
Kitchen was poorly outfitted. Furniture looked a little ratty. Sheets and spreads were too small for bed in master bedroom. WiFi and Internet modem were stacked, causing them to be extremely hot and not working upon arrival. The ceiling of the shower in the Master Bedroom was (is?) covered with mold. The bunk beds were not made up, even though 7 persons were booked for the unit. The handle on the Master Bedroom toilet broke during our stay, but was quickly fixed. Staff failed to give us the new code when we asked and were told we could get in early as the unit had been unused the previous day. We've stayed in Unit 210 many times. It's an identical, but much more nicely outfitted unit that was already taken for part of our planned stay.
“Clean and convenient location”
We have stayed at the Destin West for three years now during our Spring Break. While the service of the Rental Company was excellent, the unit was lacking. The unit was clean, but I was very disappointed with the lack of kitchen utensils and the couch. . It was the least equipped condo we have stayed in, not only at Fort Walton, but all over the country. There was not a full set of measuring cups nor any measuring spoons. No baking dishes, and unfortunately, no slow cooker. The slow cooker isn't a necessity, but most units have them for vacationing families. Also, had we been planning on having two people sleep on the pull out couch, we would have been in trouble. The springs were broken that connected to the frame, so you could not sleep on one side of the mattress. We do love the convenience of the complex's proximity to the beach and Destin. Other than the "extra's" and the sleeper sofa this is a nice unit.
“Not enough room or wash rags...”
While the condo was clean and well equiped, when you say the condo will sleep 8 you need to make sure it will. The sleeper sofa is a piece of junk. It is battered and torn and when you pull out to use as a sleeper, it is broke on one end. Impossible to sleep on and cost us more money to go buy inflatable mattress to accomidate the people we had. Also, only 4 wash rags in the entire condo. Plenty of towels though.
“Awesome resort for family's”
Condo was very nice with great view of gulf & pool area. Kitchen was well stocked with kitchenware. Everthing worked! Rooms were nice & clean. Middle bath was somewhat moldy. Ceiling needed to be cleaned in shower. Overall...very nice unit that I would rent again. Checking in/out was flawless. The only disappointment was the beach chair rental company literally blocks the guest from water access with the chairs and umbrella rentals. That forces guest to rent their chairs if you want to see the water while sunbathing! I was very surprised the resort allows that. When I asked for a chair about 10ft away from others I was told it wasn't allowed. They have to fit them close together to get as many as possible out in the 200ft entrance. What a shame, some vacationers don't want to rent them and still have an entrance to the water. After all, we are there for the beautiful emerald beach. So, condo was great!! Beach area was somewhat disappointing.
