About Joyce Hembrough

We are originally from Illinois and moved to LA (lower Alabama) in 2005, but our love for the Gulf of Mexico brought us to the Destin area and you just can't help but to fall in love with the beaches here and Destin is just so beautiful. Our home is just a little over 2 hours from our condo and that makes it the perfect get away for us.

Joyce Hembrough purchased this condo in 2012

Why Joyce Hembrough chose Gulfview Condominiums

We looked at many different properties but when we arrived at Gulfview it just felt like we were home. Everyone is friendly, the landscaping with its very tropical feel and the condo itself said to us 'this is the one'

What makes this condo unique

You are so close to the beach - less than 75 steps and really if you don't want to leave the area you are within walking distance to some really nice restaurants Pompano Joe's, The Crab Trap and Kenny D's . If you like to grill out you have the grill area a few steps away from your front door. Gulfview offers plenty of free parking and if you bring your bicycles there is a bike rack just down from your front door - just bring your bike locks for them. There is also the walking, biking, running trail right in front of the building which is about 5 miles long for you to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Joyce,

The condo was great it slept everyone comfortable. The 2 middle girls shared a bed and the little one slept in the pack and play and the oldest slept on the top bunk. And we had room for more. The kitchen was great it was stocked for what I needed it for. The only thing I couldn't find was floor cleaner. My daughter spilled a glass of tea and I went to mop and couldn't find any so we used what we had. Other wise the condo was great. I was so shocked how well everyone slept since we weren't in our own home. They all went to bed pretty early and slept in late. I also did one review but I'm not sure it went through. The only thing the kids and myself weren't pleased with was the snorkeling it wasn't nothing compared to what we have done before. But like I told the kids saw dolphins, caught live crabs and had fun that's all that really matters and we did it as a family.

Thank you again for the opportunity for our family vacation

Destin Wedding

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time in Destin at this condo! The decor was tasteful and beach appropriate. All of the basics required for a kitchen were supplied. Along with beach gear. The beach has easily accessibility and was never crowded. The owner sent information about Destin and was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend you to stay here on a trip to Destin. When we return we will stay again!!

Owner's Response: Fall is one of the very best times to come to our area - restaurants, traffic and the beach are so much more accessible and that makes for a really enjoyable time for those that come. We enjoyed having you Teresa and I so look forward to hearing from you in the future. Thanks again for choosing us, Joyce and John Hembrough

Beautiful Beach

  • 4 of 5
The Condo was very clean and spacious. Joyce was very good to work with and even had t help the night we arrived to get us pointed in the right direction. The photos did reflect on what the condo looked like, and it was very nice having a pool literally outside your front door. We enjoyed eating at Kenny D's and also Margaritaville. We also enjoyed the Salute to the local hero on Thursday night at HarborWalk. We would recommend our friends or family to stay here in the future.

Owner's Response: Gail, thank you for your review, we appreciate it so much. I'm so glad you enjoyed the area and also HarborWalk Village. When I get a chance, going to HarborWalk is one of my favorite things to do.
We discussed there not being enough cooking skillets and I am very sorry that happened. Sometimes things just disappear and we have no way of knowing until be go to the condo or like you, our guest tells us so. I'm very grateful you let me know, we will take a look at all the kitchen and or other items we need to replace the next time we get to go to the condo this month.
You were great to work with and I'm so glad you called me the evening you came in - I enjoy helping our guest, you deserve a stress free vacation and if I can help that's great for me.
Thanks again and we hope you will come back and enjoy our area in the future, Joyce and John Hembrough

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. John & Joyce are wonderful to work with and made us feel very special. They made sure our trip was easy and problem free. The condo was exactly as pictured and very comfortable and the closeness to pools and beach was awesome! Great places to eat close by and highly recommend The Donut Hole, Pompano Joe's, Hog's Breath Saloon and the dolphin cruise. We will definately be back! Thanks again John & Joyce for helping us celebrate a wonderful 35th anniversary! Joe & Sherri Proctor
