Family friendly great views from unit 3. We had a great time. The start was very friendly, out unit was really clean and welcoming. I'm glad we chose gulf winds east over the high rise condos in the area it was less crowded and felt more like home and we still had everything we needed for amenities. I highly recommend... More

Been coming here since the 90's. Love the location for being off the beaten path (Scenic Drive). Across the street from the ocean. Pool. Updated Condo Unit #43. We stay for a few months. This is a good central location for golf, shopping, and dinning. We have stayed in 6 different units at GWE. Not all the units are in... More

The condos were right across the street from the beach, the beach area was not crowded at all. There was also a pool in the center, very warm, did not feel refreshing on hot days. The condos were nice, two bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, nice kitchen and dining area. I would love to stay here again!

We love Gulf Winds East condo #25! Our friends use to own it and it was always clean and tidy! For the other condos (we've also stayed in #3): Usually, the kitchen is clean and bathrooms, etc, but the bedding and furniture does need a little updating, and looked rather "dingy." We love the location and the pool (even though... More

These were nice condos. They're designed like town homes, so living area and kitchen are downstairs and bedrooms are upstairs. I think some of the units offer a gulf view; however, we had a view of the pool. To get to the beach, we had to walk around to the front of the units and cross the street. Pictures of... More

I have come to Destin for the last 25 years and have never had such a bad experience at ANY condo! We decided to go during off-season hoping to enjoy a little piece and quiet. Quiet, maybe, peace, NO! The part time "residents" (snowbirds) were about as rude as they possibly could be. They complained about the fact that we... More

After being there at condo #19 for 2 days, our children started getting sick. After some investigating, we found black mold in all the vents in every room. We contacted maintenance and the manager. We had to leave. They did not find us another place to stay. We hadn't had a vacation in 5 years. We were devastated. Not to... More

Location Location.......we came in September and it was great. Located right across the street from the beach and down the road from Pompano Joes! WONDERFUL LOCATION. The condo was very clean and roomy. Our check in and out was pleasant and we totally enjoyed our stay! We go to Destin every year from Oklahoma but first time to stay here.... More
