This was by far one of the nicest condos we've been to. Very clean and well kept. My entire family enjoyed staying there. Would certainly come back to this condo unit in the future. We are already looking at next year's vacation!

Westwinds 4742 needs a deep cleaning. Did not have a real fresh smell. I spent about an hour wiping the counter tops, fridge handles, dishwasher handles, and oven door handles, etc. Fridge was very wet inside. I dried it out. Bottom fridge door seal is loose and hangs each time the door is opened. Shower door in master needs to be deep cleaned or replaced -- moldy. Toilet tissue holder is very loose. Shower curtains in the other two bathrooms need to be washed or replaced - soured smell and dirty. Bathtub in hall bath would not drain properly. Used it once, but since we were able to manage with the other tubs, showers, etc. did not call maintenance. Curtains in twin bedroom need to be replaced with blinds. They barely covered the windows. For the price I paid, expected better. Positive -- great location, great view, nice washer and dryer. Bed in king guest room was very comfortable. Kitchen fairly well stocked. Needs new skillets. Love Westwinds. Pool was very nice. Not our first stay in Westwinds, but first time in this unit. Will stay again, but probably a different unit, unless this one is worked on. If the door is not left open on the washer, it will smell soured also. It was closed when we got there. I left it open. I usually just say that everything is/was fine, but these issues need to be addressed and if no one tells you, then it won't get done. Thanks

Everything was as advertised. Great layout. Outstanding views. Amenities and the resort facilities are great for a family. King mattresses have seen better days and the deck needs a few more chairs but all other furniture and appliances are in good shape.

Condo was as described and pictured. The staff was professional, timely, helpful, and personable. We required a replacement of a coffee pot and it was completed within a few minutes.
We appreciated the onsite security and sense of safety.
Loved the view of the sunsets.

This was a much anticipated / long awaited trip for a group of ladies from Maryland/DC area and one who now lives in Montgomery, AL, that have been dear friends for 30+ years (Paige, Ramona, Jenny, Lydia, Sandra). Destin, and specifically, Westwinds proved to be the perfect location for our special time together. Westwinds #4742 accommodations were just as shown on website and did not disappoint for this group of 5 ladies. This condo was nicely decorated, clean, well-stocked with kitchen utensils/pots/pans/dishes, extra trash bags, extra toilet tissue, extra towels, very comfortable bedding – even the twin beds were very comfortable for the ladies to sleep on, the washer & dryer were top of the line (Samsung) – I don't love doing laundry, but I didn't mind this time! Loved the fact that all TVs were of nice size since we were a "mature group of ladies" (50+) and didn't have to strain our eyes to see the TV. We didn't eat out much since we enjoyed preparing meals in the well-equipped kitchen, but we did enjoy Margaritaville at Harborwalk Village, Bubba Gumps & Whale's Tail! The Glass Bottom Boat Dolphin Cruise by Boogies Watersports was great! Walks along the beach in the AM & PM were relaxing & therapeutic. As always, the rental process using My Vacation Haven (MVH) is the best! Simple, convenient, hassle-free. I have been booking through MVH for a few years now & the staff is always very responsive & pleasant to deal with. An added plus are the discount coupons from various vendors when you book through MVH. I am a Beach Bonus Member thanks to MVH! I've stayed at other condos in Destin, but Westwinds is by far my favorite - secure/safe, clean, and not as crowded as some of the others. I try to come at least 2-3 times per year - so you know I/we will be back! The New (and sometimes improved) Golden Girls! Thanks again MVH for such nice accommodations which made for a very memorable time in Destin! Sandra Y. – Montgomery, AL (Dates of Stay: 8-12 Sept. 2016)

Westwinds 4742 (S) 5th Floor has a gorgeous full-frontal view of the Gulf of Mexico with a wrap-around balcony that is delightful for enjoying sights and sounds of the surf. The unit is roomy with ample dishes, pans, and bath towels for everyone, making our quite comfortable. It's really wonderful to have the beach sand chairs available in the unit for our use. We rented umbrellas and chairs from the beach service but also used the unit's beach chairs for sitting at the water's edge, delightful. We would definitely rent this unit again.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Westwinds. The condo was as nice as the photos. The kitchen had all the essential items. The maintenance was very responsive. The pool was clean and well maintained. Garage parking was really nice with the inclement weather. The beach was gorgeous and only a short walk. The tram ride to the Baytown Wharf area was really convenient. The board walk area was fun for the family. Our favorite local restaurant was Tommy Bahamas. We found great deals at the Silver Sands Outlet. We would definitely recommend it!
Great piece of paradise!

The view, ease of access, location and interior decor are incredible.The refrigerator is sounding a soft alarm tone and not sure if it's a filter replacement signal or other functional need.From My Vacation Haven Team: Thank you for your feedback, we will send our maintenance guy to check the refrigerator

This condo has everything one needs for a two month stay. The kitchen inventory is the best that I have experienced at any of my extended stays. We only needed a one or two bedroom but this was the only unit available with a walk in shower and it was great. We are very critical of past places and I can not find anything to be critical about this unit. I also love working with Hunter at My Vacation Haven he is very good to work with

Having stayed in multiple places at Sandestin, 4742 was a nice surprise. Clean, modernized, convenient. The one or two moments we needed help from the leasing agent, My Vacation Haven, were answered promptly and efficiently. The pool at Westwinds, its cleanliness, and chemical mixture could use some work. Otherwise an excellent choice.

Great condo, very clean and nice. Unit is exactly what the pictures show. One of the nicest unit we have stayed in at Sandestin and we have been going to Destin for 25-30 years. Will more than likely stay in this condo again. Thanks.Barry
