The condo was very roomy. The place was a little outdated but the rooms were clean and beautiful views. Not really within walking distance to food, must have car, use uber or delivery. The beach was not over crowded since you have to have codes to access so that was nice.

We stayed in room 403. The condo was NOT clean. The couch had nasty brownish/red stains on it. I would not let my sons sleep on it. The master bathroom was not clean. The shower stall was filled with mold. The bathroom rugs were slick and nasty. Mold was on the bathroom ceilings. The 2nd bedroom outlets did not work....

We stayed in unit 705 at Destin on the Gulf. The overall condo complex was nice, convenient access to the beach, gulf views and clean pool. However, this unit was managed by Emerald Coast Vacation Rentals and I would not recommend it!! Very sparsely equipped. Not a plastic cup in the kitchen so nothing to use for a drink at...

My family has stayed at Destin on the Gulf, off and on, for years. The property is not on the main drag so it lacks the crowds and traffic found elsewhere in Destin. All units on this property face east and have magnificent views of the Gulf. This particular unit comes with complimentary beach service (none of the other units...

Destin is a place that our family goes to in order to relax and rest before the kids start school every August. We love the stretch of beach that Destin on the Gulf is located on. It seems as though this Condominium has the least crowded ocean front and a very family-oreinted clientele. We love that the building has a...

We stayed @ Destin on the Gulf #602 during Christmas break 2015. The proximity to the beach - Gulf front - was wonderful and the view was spectacular. Because the weather was unseasonably warm we were able to sleep with the master bed window open. The sound of the waves crashing made for a great nights sleep. The condo itself...

DESTIN ON THE GULF is our family favorite when we vacation in Destin, FL. No crowded beaches, plenty of parking CLOSE to the condos, excellent pool area and kind personnel in office. We've stayed in many different condos and actually like the ones ending in 5,6,or 7 which are not over the pool area. Washers/Dryers are conveniently loccated on each...

We have stayed at this facility 3 times now and it gets better each time. Its quiet, quaint, and in an excellent location. The office staff is very helpful and each time has allowed us an early check-in after traveling all night. Our rooms were well equipped with everything we could possibly need. The beach is great and I love...
