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!

My family and I have been coming to Destin for 20+ years. This year my husband and I came down with my sister and her husband. We have NEVER deviated from our usual condo place. However, this time we did and I am so very glad we did!!! This place is absolutely fantastic. The pictures online did not do it... More

Our condo #103 was beautiful and had everything you need to be comfortable. It looked brand new and was very clean! I loved being able to open the sliding glass doors to hear and see the water and beach. The patio was spacious with really nice, comfortable furniture. There is a clean washer and dryer to use in the condo,... More

We came down to Destin and this is our 3rd trip down. We love the emerald colors of the water and the soft white sand that will never burn your feet no matter how hot it is outside! We stayed in room 901 which is very tastefully furnished and it is also an end unit so while you are standing... More

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

Third time staying in Destin, first time staying here. Gated community that requires pass codes to enter amenities such as pool, beach and gym. Somewhat dated but not here to look at the room. 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
