              The address is 1180 Scenic Highway 98, which means we are not on the busy part of Highway 98. We have tried almost all of the restaurants in a 10 mile area and can give you updates on them all........Walk straight down the beach from our condo to 'The Back Porch'. It is only about 800 feet. Dewey Destin's, Harbor Docks, Tuscany, Fisherman's Warf, La Familia(Italian) and Harry T's are all within about 3 miles. So many choices of where to eat........How about Shake's for a Hot Fudge sundae as a 'nite cap'. We will be glad to fill you in on much much more.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1997

              About the owner: We are a 'divided' household with one from 'Ole Miss' and one from 'Mississippi State'. Both of us started coming to Destin for vacations when we were just kids and NOW in our next 'kid' life, we spend about 50% of our time either fishing or 'beaching' in Destin.

              Why the Owner Chose Destin Gulfgate:
              Location! Location! Location! That describes Destin Gulfgate perfectly. Destin Gulfgate is right in the middle of Destin....It is close to everything. We also bought into Gulfgate because of the quality of construction and the size of the units. Since our family likes to cook, we thought that the size of the kitchen allowed for family gathering in planning and executing the preparation of meals. Gulfgate is a community that is willing to work to keep the property at its very best with up to date amenities for its owners and rental guests.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Since Destin Gulfgate is only 65 units, its 465 feet of beachfront property.....right on the Gulf of Mexico, allows for everyone using our beach to be comfortable and not crowded. We have one of the best beach services available in Destin and your beach set up of two chairs and a umbrella will be calling you from the time you get up in the morning until the sun is almost going down. The new zero-entrance swimming pool and fitness center will be on your list of MUST DOs!!! Don't forget that with weather permitting, leave your sliding door open to get the benefit of the gentle wave action putting you to sleep at night.......what a great asset of being on the first floor(second level)........also being able to just use the stairway(and not go through the office or use the elevator) is something that makes one feel like they are in an island paradise all to themselves. Some of the other activities that you will enjoy outside, but close to our condo are the following: The Track Amusement Park is just a very short walk across the street. The Big Kahuna's Water Park is less than 1 mile down the 98 Highway. The Destin Harbor Fishing Fleet, the largest Charter Boat port in Florida, is less than 2 miles away and we can offer good tips on who to charter with. There are 12 World Class G olf courses in the area as well as an easy public course. Destin Commons Village Shopping has many great shops, Bass Pro Shop, Hard Rock Cafe, Bonefish Grill, a Rave Movie theater and others nearby. Silver Shells Outlet Center, the largest Designer Outlet shopping in is within a few miles.
