Our 1st family trip in years and our 1st trip to Destin. This was a last minute vacation and I anticipated not being able to find reasonable accommodations. The townehouse we stayed in exceeded our expectations. It was very affordable, roomy and well equipped for comfort and convenience. It was right across the street from the beach and down the street from a Dollar General and Winn-Dixie (and other stores), which helped us save money! We loved the area and the people at the front desk were very courteous. We have already began planning next year's visit! I would recommend Gulf Winds East to anyone with a family, or anyone seeking comfort, convenience and relaxation!

Room Tip: Visit the website. Each room is a different size.

Good accomodations, sugar sand, and beverages. Only PROBLEM was that Poppy's restaurant decided to close 2 hours early AFTER we called and were told that they would be open till they quit serving or at least until 10:00 pm. We got there at 8:00 pm and were told that they had already shut down the kitchen. The manager, (a short, chubby guy with a mexican accent), who ASSURED us that they would be open late and led us to believe that we could have dinner and drinks there earlier in the day, met us at the door and told us that they were closed. Thank you Poppy's Manager for RUINING our LAST DAY in Destin Florida. Kinda left a BAD taste in our mouths and we'll remember that so as to NEVER go there again. Thanks again, Poppy's manager for RUINING our last day of what COULD HAVE BEEN our BEST VACATION EVER!!!!!!

my stay at the gulf winds east was ALL RIGHT the check in was great i was able
to check in early, the location was Great. But you have to pay a 50.00 cleaning
fee and that is fine. However my condo was not clean, the stove was not clean
the cabinet under the sink had trash in the bottom of it. the refrigerator was not
completely clean and it did not cool well. the living room suite need updated
and the chair in the masters suite was soiled and spotted.

I liked my say at the Gulf Winds East Townhomes. The check in is not at the property but it is not too far away. It was fast and friendly. Each townhouse has one own parking spot, which was very convenient. The condos were very clean and spacious. It had everything I was looking for in a vacation home. A nice living room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor. Upstairs it had two rooms with each it's own bathroom which was very nice. The complex is across the street from the beach, but there is no other building across, so you have a nice and easy access to the private beach with a cute gazeboo. You have to enter an access code for the beach. The beach there was very nice and clean and not too overcrowded. The place is perfect for families with or without children and chlidren. It is very safe and cozy. It is for anybody who want to have thir quiet and peace on their vacation.
