This unit contains one queen bed, a bunk bed set and a pull out queen sofa. Enough room to sleep six people comfortably.

The final project turned out amazing!

The condominium is easily accessible from the parking area and only a few hundred feet from the complex's PRIVATE BEACH entrance which leads onto the sugar sands of the Emerald Coast. There are many great restaurants, bars and shopping locations in the area. The Destin Harbor is minutes away and the perfect spot for a night out to view some of the most majestic sunsets you will ever see! The condo is perfect for family vacations or a couple’s getaway. Plenty to do and a great place to relax and enjoy Destin and all of its amenities.

About Josh and Jessica Kilgore

We are Pennsylvania residents who love visiting the white sands and warm waters in the Gulf. We visited Destin and fell in love with the area! Paradise! Anxious to revisit and may someday call the area home.

Josh and Jessica Kilgore purchased this condo in 2014

Why Josh and Jessica Kilgore chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have searched for a tropical getaway for years and finally found our piece of heaven in Miramar Beach just outside of Destin. Only a few steps from the sugar sand and crystal water of the gulf makes this the perfect spot to get away from the daily grind.

What makes this condo unique

Gulfview is just steps away from a PRIVATE beach and sociable drinks! The cost includes 2 complex pools (one heated and open all year!), hot tub, high speed internet, cable, cleaning and beach service.

Great for a small family

  • 4 of 5

Me, my husband, and small child stayed at this condo for a week and the condo was so beautiful and comfortable! Our first day we were sent an email which I only happened to check and the new property managers wanted me to call once I called I was notified that the condo would not be ready at 4pm but would be after 5, this was inconvenient since I have a small child and we had to find something to do for over an hour waiting around on our room. It was very clean once we got checked in, But it was also difficult getting our room codes and beach codes because these were sent in an email and I didn't realize it.The issues with the property managers will probably be fixed in time since the property management company is new! I called the property management company and was given the codes over the phone though very quickly! Also the condo has WIFI but it is so slow you can not use it at all, which is probably good for family time but hard since I had a small amount of work to do! Last we could not find quarters for the washer and dryer, We finally had to go to Walmart or WinnDixie and both places were nice about getting us change! The Condo had so many covers, blankets, and comfortable pillows! The walk to the beach it very easy and the beach is not overcrowded! The room is right next to the pool which is great and you could NOT hear people screaming and playing at night, the pool closes at 10 pm and even though we did not stay out that late everyone else was out of it was by 10pm! The only noise you can hear inside is the condo above and sometimes it did sound like teenagers running. We love Destin and come every year and hopefully will be back to this condo! I have no complaints just things that maybe helpful to others when they travel here!

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Close walking distance to the beach. We didn't use the pool or hot tub so I can't rate that. Plenty of pillows and clean sheets. Nice condo.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo! Private access to the gorgeous beach is steps away from the condo. And very close to anything/everything else you need. It was the perfect get away and Josh and Jessica were very nice and super easy to communicate with. Thanks so much!!

Relaxing in Destin !

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Destin area and it won't be our last. We enjoyed the condo which is spectacular inside and out. It's in a great location. The beach and water has great color just like Mexico and the Bahamas, amazing views. We were able to enjoy several of the local eateries that were a short walking distance from the condo. We also were able to drive a short distance to other area eateries and attractions such as the Destin Harbor, which we went to several times. We had a successful fishing trip on the Swoop Charters where we caught over 45 fish between the two of us. Thank You Josh and Jess Kilgore for sharing your paradise with us! We were able to enjoy our 4th Anniversary here and we were living the dream for a week!

Clean, Cute Place to Stay Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this unit. This is our 6th year coming to Destin, but the first time we stayed in a new location. With little kids, it was so nice that the unit was on the first floor and close to the pool. After walking to and from the beach (such a short walk) it made it easy to put our beach gear on the porch and head to the pool. This was also nice for unloading/loading the car.

We have 3 kids, ages 7/5/2 and the unit was a good fit size wise for us. The kids slept comfortably in the bunks and LOVED the individual tvs in each.

We really enjoyed our stay and I would definitely recommend this unit!
