We stayed in #205 in January 2015. What a fantastic place. The condo is spacious and modern. The most inviting spot is the balcony. In the morning look to the east and see the glorious sunrise. In the evening look to the right and soak up the sunset. Absolutely loved this place.

I spent a girls' weekend in condo #205 in January 2015. This stunning property was recently remodeled and is very high end. The spacious kitchen accommodated 4 of us easily when preparing a meal. We also appreciated the ice machine and wet bar. The master suite has a full ocean view and you can hear the waves all night long.... More

We've been staying here for years and have loved it up until the Board decided to make changes 2 years ago. This coincides with a management change as well. I'm not sure which one is the driver, but the end result is: Significantly increased pricing (to pay for the new pool and exercise facility you're not likely to use) Extended... More

This was our first visit to Destin and it will not be our last! We stayed in condo # 702. It was decorated very nicely and it felt very warm and cozy. The views from the living area, master bedroom and the balcony were BREATHTAKING!!!

We rented this condo (which was an end unit) for a week this September and loved it. The unit was nicely appointed, and very brightly painted. The view of the beach from the balcony was amazing. We saw stingrays, turtles, dolphin, and a couple of small sharks from the balcony in the mornings while having our coffee. The staff was... More

Extremely clean room, grounds, pool!!! Staff polite and personable. Private beach area never crowded. Requires four separate codes for each of the following; pedestrian gate, beach access gate, fitness center, car gate......kind of a pain, especially when dark, as none of the keyboards are back lit. Great view, easy walking to restaurants and amusement. Overall extremely quiet, was one group... More

Our family of four just returned from a week at Destin Gulfgate. We loved it! The pool and fitness center were great and so was the daily chair set-up on the beach. We stayed in unit 806, an end unit that's been renovated. It is gorgeous; very tastefully decorated with the latest in home electronics. Nice deck furniture too. There... More

We stayed at Destin Gulfgate in late June 2014 for the first time and loved it! Awesome condo, huge balcony with amazing ocean view, beautiful white sand, clear water. All staff members were very pleasant and helpful. Our beach attendant, Destry, was great. We will definitely be back!
