“Stressful experience, mediocre condo”
Reviewed January 4, 2018 for a stay in December 2017
1
person found this review helpful

My interaction with the management company made for a stressful experience. I guess it’s not their fault since everything is in the fine print, but honestly paying an extra $70 for 2 infants is ridiculous. Apparently they charge “for each human.” There are so many “Or you WILL be charged” in their welcome letter that I almost felt like we couldn’t do or touch anything in the place. I’m sure they have to put it all there since other people did that stuff.

The main pool in the complex was undergoing some maintenance which just left one smaller pool and the hot tub for our use. It would have been nice to be told this in advance since that was a main reason we chose this particular condo.

The “ocean view” is basically non-existent. You do, however, have an excellent view of a parking lot and some buildings. No reason to want to go hang out on the balcony.

The condo itself was pretty nice, with two good sized bathrooms with big tubs and separate showers. It fit all 10 of us fairly comfortably. The queen bed was comfortable but the king was pretty hard and extremely squeaky. The kitchen is well stocked with enough of everything to feed a group of at least 10. The TVs are small and old with no HDMI hookups. The half bedroom with the built-in bunk beds only has a curtain for a door. They do have outlets for each of the beds which was convenient. The pullout bed is particularly uncomfortable. We ended up just sleeping on the couch instead. The hallway leading to the condo has a funky smell from whatever chemicals they use to clean it.

It’s only a 3 minute walk to the beach which was very convenient. There are showers for washing off sand and a place to put your shoes before stepping onto the beach. There are also a good amount of gas grills available for use.

“OMG”

I am not one to write reviews but I have to on this place. I booked this for myself, wife, 2 kids and mother in law. Getting in was easy and good parking. When entering the condo we noticed that the place still had sand all over the floors and didn't smell like it had just been cleaned. The portable laundry rack was broken and shoved into the kids bunk room. The bunk room also had a bloody smear on the wall and a rod for the curtain that looked like it was going to fall down any second. All the walls and doors had black smudge marks all over them (not just wear and tear but like dirty not ever wiped down). The mirror in the queen bedroom was broken with a piece duct tape across it with CAUTION written on it. The shower stall in the king bathroom had mildew all over the bottom of the door, there were random hairs on the walls of the shower, dirt in the corners and behind the door. They supplied 1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, 1 roll of paper towels and 2 small trash bags for 7 days. The lounge chairs on the balcony were rusted. I know I'm not in Florida to watch television but man these were small, old one 19" tube in the living room, a maybe 13" flat in the king and queen had a 13" tube. No tv in the kids bunk room. The king bed sounds like it's going to fall apart it would actually wake up my wife ever time I would roll over. The queen room door out to the balcony we were told not to open because it would not close right again and could not be locked (seriously can't get that fixed!). The kitchen had no dish washer pods or fluid to run in it. Just dish soap for sink dishes. The couches were old and had some seriously stained covers on them; not too uncomfortable but worn out. The kitchen appliances were nice but they had wrapped the stove crum trays so much with aluminum foil the burner plugs had to be shoved back in every time you put a pot on them. I emailed the owner about the mirror and cleanliness of the unit ( nothing under 18" is wiped down or cleaned) and he got back to me quickly stating that his cleaning service was very busy that morning and in a hurry. He would send them back out. I never saw them or noticed a difference till late the next evening when I saw that the broken laundry rack was gone and the bloody smear in the bunk room had been removed. Nothing else was touched! These condos are only 8 years old I think and this unit looked 20 years old. I will say that this condominium complex was awesome. I absolutely loved the pools, the access to the beach. It was unbelievably easy to get in and out of to dine and shop. The pool had a movie night after dark on Monday that was so cool! It could not have been a better location. I would recommend this complex to anyone just not this individual condo. If they took one weeks rent and put it back into this unit you would have a sweet place. Looks like a "take all the profits and be damned what happens to your rental." The picture under the bed is what my mother in law found under her bed (the queen room). I have no girls so that crap under there doesn't belong to us and my boys found a ton of toys all over the place under cushions and behind the open tv stand with a ton of sand, dirt and dust.

We are very sorry you were not satisfied with this unit. The laundry rack just had a loose pole that needed to be pushed back in. The sand here is like sugar, and though the unit was swept and mopped, some of that “sugar” stays on the floor. It’s impossible to remove every grain during a summer turn clean, where the maids have 6 hours to clean 4 units. As for the other cleaning issues, it is our policy to send the cleaning crew back asap after receiving a complaint to attempt to make the guest happy, as we did after your complaints. All you had to do was show them what you wanted done. The full length mirror was cracked at the bottom (out of view) by a previous guest, and we taped over the crack for your safety, since we didn’t have a spare mirror to replace it. The lounge chairs do have some rust on them (as does anything metal left outside at the beach more than a week), but we provide straps and cushions on top of the chairs for your comfort. We have had our TVs stolen two times from that unit, which is why we have tube-type TVs in there now. The queen room door has a lock which works properly. We tell people not to use it, however, because most can’t figure out how to lock it once they open it due to its atypical design … and then thieves can access the unit from the balcony (which is how our TVs got stolen). There are two other doors to the same balcony that lock easily, and are not blocked by lounge chairs as this one is. We will see about waxing that king bed frame to eliminate the wood frame squeaks.

We're glad you enjoyed your stay in our AV204. It's one of the original buildings on the beach, and as such is only four stories high, which gives it a lot of beach for just 24 units. This makes it very quiet, peaceful, and family friendly. For those who want to relax, it's the perfect place!

“A wonderful beach vacation!”

We loved our stay at the Destin West this summer. The condo was just what we needed. Great location, with close distance to the beach as well as access to several pools on the property. The lazy river was my kids favorite pool in the evenings after spending the day at the beach. Also at walking distance of the Boardwalk with nice restaurants, playground, ice cream shop and other shops. Destin was only a short drive away. And walking the Pier was a nice experience too, watching the dolphins play in the water, and the sea turtles swim. Overall a great week that went by too fast! We will be back!

DW403 really is a hidden gem. With it's water park, access to the resort next door, and proximity to everything including the beach, it's our best value for sure.

Had a wonderful escape to the beautiful Emerald Waters! Ms. Dillon sent us everything we needed to make the transition in and out a breeze. The condo is placed perfectly - close to an elevator and the breezeway to the beach. The beach was beautiful with super white sands (bring your sunglasses) and emerald waters. So fantastic!
