The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for the week. The owners were very detailed and provided all condo instructions for my husband and I. They answered all the questions we had and were there for us when we had questions.

Owner response: I have been so blessed to have wonderful guests like you and your husband! I believe providing information and help prior to the stay is as important as a clean, well stocked, comfortable home during the stay. Thank you for choosing my condo and visiting our beautiful area. I hope you come back many more times!
WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!!!!
WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!!!!
Me and My Husband stayed at this Complex and this Unit for the first time during our many trips to Destin, FL Aug. 26th through the 31st It was one of the cleanest and nicest Units we have stayed in by far. The property is well maintained as well. The pictures on VRBO are Spot On. Everything was just as it said it would be. The laundry room is literally right outside your door which was so convenient to wash clothes and it was still peaceful and quiet. Even though the Complex is across the street from the beach, it is so easy and accessible to get tot he beach and just steps away from the beach, that you feel like you are staying right on the beach. What you see is what you get and more. There are just little extras that you just don't expect. It has everything you need. When I walked in the unit and that fresh clean smell just jumped right out at me, I knew it was going to be nice. It is beautifully decorated and very cozy. We felt like we were at home. Kathryn, the owner was just wonderful to work with and had such great correspondence back and forth with her. Just so easy to talk with and quickly would respond to you and just so helpful She made it a wonderful experience and her attention to detail was impeccable. She left chocolates for us on a little platter on the end table in the living room area and that was such a nice touch. We had great weather during our stay so that just made it even better. I would recommend this unit to my friends and family and we are already planning to go back and stay here again next year. Can't Wait!!!! Thank you so much Kathryn!

We throughly enjoyed our stay at this Condo. The owner was very easy to work with and answered any questions we had in a timely manner. The Condo was very well stocked and clean. It was just as described and the pictures are very accurate. We stayed with 2 teenage girls, two young boys, and two adults. The boys enjoyed the bunk beds! The area was very nice and had lots to do. We will definitely be back to stay again!

The condo was excellent! Nothing but good things to say!!! Kathryn (the owner) was accommodating for us and everything was described perfectly. The condo was clean, a few steps to the beach, and near local restaurants. We could not have asked for a better week away in FL! Thanks so much. We will definitely return!

We stayed here while our home was being remodeled. It was very clean & nicely decorated. Gulfview is family friendly and the layout of having the bbq grills by each pool is perfect. We certainly would stay here again and will be telling our friends/relatives about this condo.

Very very positive review
Very very positive review
My experience was as positive as it could be, not so much that the place was a five-star hotel or anything, but mostly that the owners of the property did all they could for me and offered such exceptional service that you don't see in America anymore - at least not on the East coast where I am located. In fact, we were hit with Hurricane Sandy the day I was to leave, and so all the flights were canceled and I ended up making it a day late. But sure enough, they offered me a reimbursement for the day I was not able to make it due to that weather-related issue. I don't want to speak for them and guarantee that this would be true for all situations, but I think it reflects the great service and accommodation that I was given throughout my stay there. I highly recommend this place solely based upon their service. As for the actual place, it was quite nice and conveniently located within the complex. It is close enough to the beach and there is a nice side-view of the ocean and sunset from their balcony. The one thing that might bother some is that when you open the balcony door, there is a constant humming sound from the fountain and generator from the next property over. However, I didn't seem to mind it all that much. All in all, I highly recommend this place, and will look for it again myself should I ever come down again.

Our first family vacation and our first time to Destin and it was AMAZING!!!. It was absolutly beautiful and Kathryn helped make our first family vacation amazing. Upon our arrival Kathryn left us a note and some arrival gifts. We were so surprised and we enjoyed them ALOT!!! Her condo provided everything we needed...a well stocked kitchen, linens, ocean equipment, all we had to purchase was the food to cook. The condo was extremely clean and in order. This condo in person is truely amazing, from the decor to everything you need. Our kids were very please with the bunk beds and slept well. Our bed was the same, even though we had a window in our bedroom the complex was quiet and non distrubing. Needless to say we all slept well!!. Our view from the balcony was breathtaking!!!! Overall we would give this a BIG 5, we know we don't have anything to compare to however we would not want to go anywhere else and we will be back again!!!!! THANKS Kathryn!!! :)

Owner response: Kristina, I am sooo happy you all were pleased with the condo and our beautiful beaches!! I really hope our relationship continues! Wow! You were perfect guests!! Thank you so much for appreciating and taking care of our home! The condition you left it in made the turnover very easy. Thank you so very much! I hope you come back again soon!
We had a great time at the gulfview condo. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The complex was nice although sometimes difficult to gain access to the pool area due to it being overcrowded. All in all a great vacation and would recommend it to friends.

Owner response: Yes, our complex is very popular! That's a good sign! The area is coming back! Our beaches have been restored and the water is beautiful! Fortunately we have at least six months of perfect weather, some of which are not during the most crowded times. So I hope you join us again next season or even better return in the fall or spring when the weather is cooler and the beaches less crowded. Thank you for your patronage! Enjoyed having you!
We rented this condo over the 4th of July week. The owner was pleasant to deal with and always available if needed for questions. There were plenty of paper goods already there for our use. The kitchen was well stocked and the beach items for use were a pleasant surprise! With 2 pools and a short walk to the beach it was perfect for our family! Also, the unit was very clean upon our arrival and the decor and furnishings were up to date and comfortable! I recommend this place!

My Favorite Place
My Favorite Place
What can I say...I loved it! How could you not, the condo was wonderful, clean and fresh, very well decorated, has everything you need and I felt relaxed and comfortable the moment we walked in the door. The beds were very comfortable and all the appliances and entertainment you could need. Also with 2 pools, hot tub, laundry and guess what...just walk across the street and you find the most wonderful white sand beach and the ocean. Security patroled, never felt insecure (single mom w/2 teen daughters). Met some great families, quite yet close to shopping. Have already recommended to family and friends and plan on going back as soon as possible. You will love it! Thanks Kathryn
