My family and I stayed in unit 606 for a week and absolutely loved the property...I would stay in unit 606 again as it was clean, comfortable, very nicely decorated and would definitely stay at Destin Gulfgate on our next visit. It's small (66 units) and quiet, well maintained, the beach is private and the least crowded beach on that... More

This year, my family and I decided to go to Destin for our beach trip. Naturally, I consulted Tripadvisor to find a good place to go. After reading several reviews, I decided to go with Destin Gulfgate. Best decision I could have ever made! Making reservations was quick and easy. A deposit was required with the rest of the total...

I took my family down to Destin for the first time a couple weeks ago. We rented a condo at Destin Gulfgate for a week. Booking is super easy. Put a little bit down at booking and then paid the rest 10 days from the date. Once we got there, I was pleasantly surprised to discover the unit (402) has... More

We arrived on July 4th for a week of relaxation. Well, as much relaxation that you can get with five children! We stayed in unit 205 and couldn't have been happier with our room. The condo was tastefully decorated with newer furniture. Bathrooms were way more than adequate and the kitchen made it feel like home. I enjoyed spending early... More

My family and I visited the Gulfgate with some friends who had been two times before. They so highly recommended the place that I wondered if it could possibly live up to the hype....well it did and then some! It was hands down the best beach vacation we have ever been on. Room 602 was amazing! It had everything in... More

My family stayed at the Destin Gulfgate last week in Unit 601. The Gulfgate was excellent. It had everything we were looking for. The beach was beautiful and not crowded even though it was Memorial Day weekend. The condo was very nice and we loved being able to sit on the balcony and watch the tide come in. We even... More

Destin Gulfgate is a medium size complex in a great location. We loved our unit and the views are excellent. We liked that it was gated for privacy and the balconies are extra large. The surrounding grounds are very well kept.

Have been staying at the Gulfgate for 20 years! Spring break,summer,and February . Most of the units are fresh and updated. They are very spacious,one of the largest 2 bedroom condos in Destin. The balcony is fantastic.

Everything about this facility is first quality, the staff, the rooms, the view, the location...could not be any better. Had booked here in February 2014 for our 50th wedding anniversary. Everything was GREAT. Sierra was extremely helpful with some extras that I wanted to arrange for my wife. Already booked for February 2016.
