Real review - Nicely sized place and has great potential. A few suggestions here to make it a solid 4+ stars...The issues: There are no consumables so make sure to bring salt and pepper. TV remote in the bedroom doesn't control the TV and honestly, for the price, you could upgrade it to a larger TV. The chair in the living room was clearly broken and needs to be replaced. Patio view is good but the palm trees block most of it so you get a narrow view of the pool and you have to stretch to see the ocean. But they are visible !! The supplied paper products are the cheapest available. Again, for the price, you could step that up to improve the experience. Place was clean overall. Outlets were old and most didn't work. They might have been tied to light switches but good luck finding which ones turn on the outlet. Oh and please either remove or actually attach the headboard to the master room bed. If you move it slams against the wall. When I looked it was not attached to the bed. It would be a good idea to paint the walls and frame / steps for the two bunk beds. Lastly, supplied towels are old and worn out. This is a really nice spot and could easily be updated to be a 4+ star vacation unit. Just need a few details attended to.

My wife and I had this condo booked for July 3rd - July 9th. Unfortunately, our stay was accommodated by long rainy days. The furniture in this condo is very old and out dated. The only lounge chair is broken and provides no comfort. The sofa is a very old high back with high sides that make it impossible to spend any long amount of time on it to relax. The cushions for the outdoor seating are old and torn. We left the condo on the 5th due to the poor weather and lack of accommodations inside that needed to be there to provide a comfortable space to relax. The mattress in the master bedroom is an older thin non pillow top firm mattress. If you like a firm bed with no plush, you’ll sleep just fine. I will say the Vacasa staff we spoke with were very nice. Destin West is a great resort, we will certainly consider staying there again just not in Gulfside 207. The owner needs to step up and invest a small portion of their profits into new furniture.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are disappointed to see that these concerns were not reported to us during your stay as we would have been happy to assist. We have passed your feedback along to our housekeeping staff so they are aware of your concerns. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!

Very clean, had everything we needed, and a great location and amenities! We will definitely be back!

The beach access is easy-the walk across the bridge to the pool wasn’t bad at all. I would recommend bringing a blanket as a very thin one is provided and no extra linens. The condo could use updating and cosmetic paint updates. Otherwise the condo was clean and balcony overlooks the gulf side pool. Plenty of towels provided.

Perfect for a beach getaway for a family! Kitchen was well-stocked with good appliances. Easy access to the beach too!

Condo was nice and looks exactly like the pictures. Furniture was a little outdated.

Loved that it is close to the beach and the pool. Great view of pool and small view of the gulf (but it’s there.) Clean. Beds comfortable (except for bunk...).
Easy check in and out with Vacasa, and when I had questions, they were immediate with their response. I’d stay again.

The resort was nice & easy beach access. Everyone their was friendly & I never felt unsafe. The bed & pillows were comfortable. The unit was not cleaned real well... grapes on the kitchen floor, cigarette ashes on the balcony floor. The balcony chair cushions had rips in them & needed replaced. It says partial gulf view & it should say one foot of gulf view. Unfortunately there are four huge palm trees blocking the pool/gulf view. This unit does not come with beach service, so that is an extra $45 a day.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Amy! We are sorry to read the home did not receive a satisfactory clean prior to your arrival. The housekeeping supervisor has been advised so she can follow-up on the matter. We will discuss the seat cushions with the owner. We hope to see you again!
RUBY Y. Oct 2020
We enjoyed our stay. The mattress was the most comfortable we've had in many vacations. The only thing I think would be nice is if the condo managers would trim the trees near the condo balcony. We could not see anything from our 2nd story balcony overlooking the pools except the trees.
Manager response:
Hi, Ruby! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We will give your suggestion about the trees needing a trim to the local manager for further review. We hope to host you again in the future!
