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

Our 1st family trip in years and our 1st trip to Destin. This was a last minute vacation and I anticipated not being able to find reasonable accommodations. The townehouse we stayed in exceeded our expectations. It was very affordable, roomy and well equipped for comfort and convenience. It was right across the street from the beach and down the... More

Good accomodations, sugar sand, and beverages. Only PROBLEM was that Poppy's restaurant decided to close 2 hours early AFTER we called and were told that they would be open till they quit serving or at least until 10:00 pm. We got there at 8:00 pm and were told that they had already shut down the kitchen. The manager, (a short,... More
