The best views that I've ever experienced in Destin! We stayed in a corner unit that even had a view from the kitchen window. In our particular unit, the kitchen was nicely updated with granite and stainless steel appliances, the living and dining area were very spacious but the bathrooms need to be remodeled. The tub showers are in older... More

We will definitely be back. Best family vacation ever! The room (Condo #103), pool and convenient location on the beach were wonderful. We had a total of seven with us and the condo was big enough that we didn't feel crowded at any time. The kids loved the pool, too. We are now big fans of Destin. Great restaurants, too!... More

Two bedroom, two bathroom but just needed one. Bright condo with gulf views as soon as you enter. Rate was great almost half the price and... More

Destin Gulfgate lives up to its reputation. Gated for privacy, super clean, roomy, all the comforts of home, great kiddie pool, pleasant beach set up attendant, zero wild partying, beautiful beach with sugar white sand and cool water with the most amazing view. Unit 505 is quiet and would be perfect except for two very uncomfortable mattresses is double queen... More

We had a total of five children with us, one being a two year old, two ten year old boys and two fifteen year old girls. Having stayed here two years ago, we knew without a doubt this would be the perfect place. Due to this condo being within walking distance of The Back Porch, The Track, etc, we knew... More

We are just leaving from a 5 day stay at Destin Gulfgate, unit 601. The unit was exactly like the pictures on their website which was outstanding! The whole building is exceptionally clean and the staff was friendly and very helpful. The beach service provided daily was so convenient and one of the reasons we chose Destin Gulfgate. The location... More

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
