I found this to be among the nicer condos at which we have ever stayed. We stay almost only in condos when on long term vacations. The condo had been remodeled and everything was perfect except the TV. Cox was putting in new boxes and in typical Cox style the box went out during our stay. Nothing unusual for Cox... More

We had another great stay at the Destin Gulfgate, this time in unit 603, which is our new favorite! In addition to the great views and excellent location, which we have come to expect, our unit had apparently been recently renovated, with new appliances and very pretty decorating. We had a great time and will be back next year!

We'd not pre-booked anything - in fact, when we set off, we hadn't even settled on Destin, but we arrived here on 20th Oct and started looking for somewhere to stay. The criteria were that we wanted an apartment on the beach, but with good amenities to hand. The sign said 'walk-ins welcome' so we did and how lucky we... More

Many people don't think of enjoying the beach in the fall . This is my second year to visit Gulfgate in early November. The weather was a blend of sunny and cloudy . Destin Gulfgate is well maintained and the management is superb. I have never had a unit I did not like but having said that I do like... More

Staff was very accommodating to our needs. When we arrived, our room was not satisfactory due to dirty carpet. Another room was not available until the next day. We were somewhat inconvenienced by not being able to unpack or get groceries, but the next day we moved and everything was perfect from that point on for the rest of the... More

If you want some tranquility from the day to day life this is place for you! This condo is one of the most spacious, clean and harbors one of the best views in Destin. Destin Glufgate has been our destination for many years now and will continue to be for the years to come. Enjoying a cup of coffee on... More

First time in Destin and we picked the Destin Gulfgate based on previous reviews. No issues with reservations or check in. Staff was very nice and gave us all the relevant information. Our condo was well appointed, through it did show a bit of age. Different condos may have more modern detail, but ours was outfitted in a tropical type... More

Love the views, size of rooms, small but nice pool. Not happy with cleanness of condo. Been here before this is the worst I have seen it. I really hope it backs to the way it was or I will be looking elsewhere. On vacation not here to clean.

For the first time, I came to Destin in late summer. It's not my favorite time of year as the sun seemed to be hiding from me, but Destin Gulfgate was a pleasure, as usual. I was sure to photograph the only sunny day of my vacation from the balcony of condo #102!
