We have visited the Destin area seven times over the past several years, including five years at Sandestin and one year at Sundestin. The Destin Gulfgate was far and away our favorite rental. The two-bedroom condo (#304) was very spacious, clean and comfortable, and was filled with top of the line upgrades such as stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, beautiful tiled ceiling, and fully equipped kitchen. We also loved the 30 foot balcony with a table, several chairs, and two lounge chairs. There were also nice flat panel TVs and Blu-ray DVDs in every room. We were also VERY impressed with the staff, who were extremely friendly and instantly fixed a few small problems, such as a dead lightbulb. They really made us feel welcome. The location, near the harbor and the Destin Commons is also very nice. Staying here cost us less money than Sandestin has in the past, and we enjoyed it a lot more, both for the great unit and since we were right on a very nice beach. Gulfgate is actually only a few buildings down from Sundestin, but we felt the Gulfgate unit was much nicer and more modern. Overall, we had a great stay here and we'll be booking again soon for next year!
