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.

We stay here on a yearly basis. Although it's a bit pricey it is well worth it. We try and come before the spring break crowd and enjoy the open beaches. The one thing I can say is about this place that sold me was the master bedroom opens up to the balcony that overlooks the ocean. Awesome view!

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 am still reliving my wonderful time spent staying at the Destin Gulfgate condo #205! What a view this unit has! The owners definitely have a flair and an eye for quality! The furniture and decor were beautiful and made you feel special, yet very comfortable! I highly recommend that you check this unit out. I will definitely be coming... More

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!!!
