"Destin Gulfgate was the perfect location for us. The condo was well supplied! There was a full sized washer and dryer which is great for beach towels!! The owners are exceptional! He met us upon arrival and gave us a tour with helpful information. We didn't have to explore or guess about how the condo works. He checked on us midweek via text to see if everything was working. The view from the balcony is grand and we walked to The Back Porch several times for our favorite lunch. The beach was not crowded!! Umbrellas are set up in a horseshoe formation which was great!!! Only one row with no one in front of you!!! This was and end unit and we hope to rent again!!!"

"We immensely enjoyed our stay at Unit 67 in Southbay. The unit itself was very comfortable and had all the kitchen items, pillows and bedding needed. We had 2 adults, a 17 year old, 8 and 6 year old and the bed types worked great for us. All the beds were comfortable. The owners were very easy to work with and readily available to answer questions. This unit backs up to the pool which was great after a long day at the beach the kids could jump right in for more swimming. The beach is very close maybe 2 minutes walk and that's while toting cooler, rafts etc. The rental includes 1 Umbrella and 2 chairs setup at the beach which was a great plus as we flew in and didn't have any chairs with us. The patio has a storage closet that has a charcoal grill and maybe a few leftover rafts from other renters (we left a couple there and there were some when we arrived), and there is an air hose at the pool so you can blow up any floats too! The complex has a lake that is full of turtles and you can fish too. Parking is in front of the unit so it's super easy to load and unload. We will be back (hopefully soon!)
A great choice for family fun is the Harborwalk which is about 2.5 miles away. Of course the restaurants there are pricey because it's a tourist area and you are paying for the views which are spectacular, but there are free parades, concerts, and fireworks on different nights seasonally, and they have a small midway with carnival games for the little ones and zip lines for the teens (not free of course). You can also walk along the harbor for about a mile or so and see all the boats and if you are lucky like us dolphins. Also here on the docks is Destin Snorkel which has Sunset dolphin cruises and dolphin/snorkel cruises. We did both and had a great time.
AJ's is a good choice for dinner with the kids or drinks, food and dancing later in the evening, they always have great bands and their peel and eat shrimp was way larger than at other restaurants we went to.
McGuires is a Destin favorite with dollar bills stapled all over walls and ceilings. The food is good pub fare salads, burgers steaks etc and it is always busy. Go early or be prepared for a bit of a wait (if you don't care about AC go upstairs to get a table faster)"

"We loved our visit to Destin in the GORGEOUS condo at Silver Beach Towers! The condo was spotless, comfortable and gorgeous! The location is perfect and the pool and beach are wonderful! We highly recommend it and will definitely be back! Thank you!"
