We stayed in unit 16, the condo itself was very clean and roomy. The kitchen was well equipped. Beach and pool toys and accessories are kept in the outside closet. The property is near (within walking distance) grocery stores and restaurants and it is within 50 yards from the beach. The pool was a bit small but is kept clean.

My family stayed in #50 and I asked to have the carpet cleaned before we arrived because I have an asthmatic child and they did just that and more to make sure the place was clean for us it was way more prettier than I thought it would be.

Perfect beaches! Sweet little condo with Plenty of room. Easy access to beaches and grocery stores but still far away from the bright city to see the stars at night. Can't wait to get to go back! The water was clear as a pool and the weather was perfect when we were there. Its amazing how quickly Destin is growing.

Been coming here since the 90's. Love the location for being off the beaten path (Scenic Drive). Across the street from the ocean. Pool. Updated Condo Unit #43. We stay for a few months. This is a good central location for golf, shopping, and dinning. We have stayed in 6 different units at GWE. Not all the units are in...

The condos were right across the street from the beach, the beach area was not crowded at all. There was also a pool in the center, very warm, did not feel refreshing on hot days. The condos were nice, two bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, nice kitchen and dining area. I would love to stay here again!

We love Gulf Winds East condo #25! Our friends use to own it and it was always clean and tidy! For the other condos (we've also stayed in #3): Usually, the kitchen is clean and bathrooms, etc, but the bedding and furniture does need a little updating, and looked rather "dingy." We love the location and the pool (even though...
