About Roland or Pat Guidry, Owners
I was the one who initiated, named, planned, designed, marketed, and managed Destin Gulfgate condo, as well as being one of the developers. And as one of the developers and the designer, I made unit 401 unique. It is designed as two separate private suites and is one of a handful on units with both a 6' jacuzzi tub in one bath and a 6' walkin shower in the other. 401 is also a corner unit with more privacy and side windows.
Roland or Pat Guidry, Owners purchased this condo in 1993
Why Roland or Pat Guidry, Owners chose Destin Gulfgate
Destin, Florida has the most beautiful beaches in the world. Also, every unit directly faces the beach and the building is closer to the water than any other condo other than those built 35 years ago when building could be placed closer.
What makes this condo unique
460 feet of beach for only 66 units of which a little over half are vacation rental units. Close to everything, including walking distance to the Back Porch and Grazzi restaurants.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Make sure you visit our other web site that contains lots of additional pictures: gulfgate.info
I was the designer and one of the developers of Destin Gulfgate condo and made my unit 401 floor plan extra nice.
It is designed as two totally private suites--you can get from each bedroom to its respective bathroom without coming out into the living area. I also incorporated larger bathrooms and an outside storage closet for beach items. I am also proud of the electonics I have provided: one 37" Flat Screen TV, 2 25" TVs, a kitchen counter TV, two stereo systems, and game port access in the living room and guest bedroom. I also provided two queens in the guest bedroom. My unit 401 is also one of only a hand full of Gulfgate units with a 6' walkin shower in one bathroom, and a 6' jacuzzi tub in the other. 401 is an end unit which has the advantage of side windows and also extra privacy and peace and quiet because the unit is at the end of the walkway and the only people who walk by your door are those who use the stairway rather than the elevators (not many do). Pat and I are very proud of the remodeling we just completed in January of 07--take a look at the pictures at gulfgate.info Come stay in our pride and joy!!!
