My wife and I have stayed a week or two in Westwinds for the past 14 years. We started out renting directly from Sandestin and then moved to renting from owners. We always had great experience with Sandestin but we eventually learned from others that we were paying a huge premium. When we have rented from owners we have had mixed experiences - usually the condo is not clean at check-in and often there are countless maintenance issues. We have noticed some concerning general trends for West Winds. (1) the class of clientele is on a downward spiral - lots of cigarettes, tattoos and foul language - diapers in the pool (2) pool and hot-tub maintenance is lacking (3) security of the property is in bad shape - the entire stay this year the gate from pool to ocean was not functional so we got to enjoy our time with a number of beach stragglers because nobody was checking wrist bands (not once was anyone from my family asked about a wristband).
Dining: We ate at McGuires, Lagniappe (twice), Fisherman's Wharf, Crab Trap, Fuds, Another Broken Egg
Room: We rented room 4826 on the 16th floor from MyVacationHaven and it was very clean with very few maintenance issues. They were responsive to our needs and we will definitely rent through them again.
