Perfect Snowbird Rental
As repeat visitors to this rental we always look forward to returning. The building and amenities are so well maintained and beautiful. Pool area, work out room and beach access give us everything we need and want. The maintenance staff checks in regularly to be sure everything is tip top. We love the interior of the condo and updates to the furnishings were such a pleasant surprise. It now looks and feels much more beach like. The office staff is so accommodating when we call with a question or problem and address it promptly. We wouldn't want to be anywhere else than here in our second home.William & Sally C.

wonderful place for a vacation
While I appreciate the maintenance of the building and all facilities, it was disappointing that for most of our last month we couldn't use our balcony due to painting of the exterior. Our balcony furniture had to be removed so no meals there or sunning or sitting in our comfy chairs to watch the sunset. We did resort to using our beach chairs but it wasn't the same. It will be sparkling clean for next year.William & Sally C.

Fall Break 2018
We had a great experience at Westwinds. The pool was heated and was so nice! The grounds were so nice, lush, green with beautiful ocean views. The balcony was super nice with new furniture. The room was beautiful. The only complaint I had was the couch was really uncomfortable to sit on and I felt as though the living space was a little cramped. Overall, the place was awesome! I would definitely come back.Rachel B.

June 2019-Florida Vacation
We've stayed at many "resorts" and honestly I was disappointed here because I expected more. The lunch/drink hut @the pool closed at 5pm the girl who did "beach service" hardly came by & Westwind beach area isn't that large so it shouldn't have been a problem. It joins the Members only area and that beach service girl was always making rounds. (you can't use that girl) Again we've done many airbnb's/ resorts etc. the condo was nice enough but there was nothing special about it. A small dish soap/ salt & pepper/ 1 laundry deteregent. No info (leaflets) on where things were at SanDestin since we've stayed in other condo's here we actually told people about the Wharf etc. No info on the "things to see" in the surrounding area. the ice maker wasn't working and immediately they sent a repair man, who sent for a tech who fixed it and within an hour ANOTHER tech company came out, after telling him it was already fixed he said he'd be back in an hour to just replace it. Never saw him again, didn't matter because it was fixed. (I see double billing to property owner) On a positive note loved being on the beachdeborah m.

Sub par property
I have stayed in Westwinds for a month every fall for the last ten years. 4781 was the worst property I stayed in. Furniture was junk, decorating awful, cooking equipment not fit to take to Goodwill. On the plus side, appliances were fine, tile floors, baths, walk in shouwer were excellent. The common areas, pool, beach access, security, were great. Vacation Haven was excellent to work with, and went out of their way to satisfy me.Jeff E.

A Little Piece of Paradise
Every part of Westwinds from a very large pool area, lovely lobby, and a well-equipped work out room is an immaculately clean, well cared-for facility. And, of course, you can't beat being right on the beach. There is maintenance staff on site. The condos were treated for pests by a service and the dryer vent was cleaned as part of regular maintenance. There is also a covered parking garage. My Vacation Haven has exceeded our expectations. They are friendly and responded right away to a couple of minor maintenance issues. Our condo was very clean when we arrived and suits us perfectly, roomy and well decorated. We love it so much we will return next year for 2 months again.William & Sally C.

Poor customer service.
Experienced a difficult time communicating to Property Management. Very little support, flexibility and understanding of customer needs. No improvement for many years! Team Manager Hunter could not assist and even forgot to return my phone call. No effort at all to help and resolve any issues. Totally different from other vacation management companies where client comes first. Will consider other places in a future.Yelena A.

Westwinds is great!
Westwinds is very nice, as always. The condo was clean and beautiful. Perfect location with the clean and beautiful Westwinds pool. The queen bed was too firm for my preference and the dishwasher was a bit difficult to open. This particular unit had a large walk-in laundry which worked well to fit the pack-n-play to give my 1 year old his own "room" and prevent me from waking him up during the night, so he slept well

Not GREAT Unit Old BEDS
Qe’ve stayed at several units in this building and this one was disappointing. Its Handicap accesible (which is as not noted), both beds in the bedrooms were so noisy we didnt sleep well at all, the couch and pull out beds were just the same noisy and uncomfortable. This unit seems to be thrown together with old or hand me down furniture. We will not be chosing this on again. We did complain to agent and nothing could be done.

Disappointing Westwinds 4781
This unit is badly in need of updating and a cleaning. The pictures make it look much better than it is. The kitchen was dirty and not well equipped. Very few dishes, pots, utensils, etc. The carpet was in need of replacing. The bedding was old and dirty, as was the furniture. The furniture on the patio was uncomfortable, insufficient, and the mesh on the chairs was wearing out. This management company called to ask if we wanted to extend our stay since the place was vacant the next day, and when I talked to the rep about the condition of the unit, he didn't seem to care.

We had a great family vacation and enjoyed our time at West Winds. We have stayed in several different units over the years and never have any complaints. The unit was nice and clean and we'd definitely consider staying again. We couldn't get the ice maker to work and the unit could use a new coffee pot and skillet/frying pans but otherwise everything was sufficient.Nancy W.
