About Ralph and Jeffry Armstrong

We are a 'divided' household with one from 'Ole Miss' and one from 'Mississippi State'. Both of us started coming to Destin for vacations when we were just kids and NOW in our next 'kid' life, we spend about 50% of our time either fishing or 'beaching' in Destin.

Ralph and Jeffry Armstrong purchased this condo in 1997

Why Ralph and Jeffry Armstrong chose Destin Gulfgate

Location! Location! Location! That describes Destin Gulfgate perfectly. Destin Gulfgate is right in the middle of Destin....It is close to everything. We also bought into Gulfgate because of the quality of construction and the size of the units. Since our family likes to cook, we thought that the size of the kitchen allowed for family gathering in planning and executing the preparation of meals. Gulfgate is a community that is willing to work to keep the property at its very best with up to date amenities for its owners and rental guests.

What makes this condo unique

Since Destin Gulfgate is only 65 units, its 465 feet of beachfront property.....right on the Gulf of Mexico, allows for everyone using our beach to be comfortable and not crowded. We have one of the best beach services available in Destin and your beach set up of two chairs and a umbrella will be calling you from the time you get up in the morning until the sun is almost going down. The new zero-entrance swimming pool and fitness center will be on your list of MUST DOs!!! Don't forget that with weather permitting, leave your sliding door open to get the benefit of the gentle wave action putting you to sleep at night.......what a great asset of being on the first floor(second level)........also being able to just use the stairway(and not go through the office or use the elevator) is something that makes one feel like they are in an island paradise all to themselves. Some of the other activities that you will enjoy outside, but close to our condo are the following:

The Track Amusement Park is just a very short walk across the street. The Big Kahuna's Water Park is less than 1 mile down the 98 Highway. The Destin Harbor Fishing Fleet, the largest Charter Boat port in Florida, is less than 2 miles away and we can offer good tips on who to charter with. There are 12 World Class G olf courses in the area as well as an easy public course. Destin Commons Village Shopping has many great shops, Bass Pro Shop, Hard Rock Cafe, Bonefish Grill, a Rave Movie theater and others nearby. Silver Shells Outlet Center, the largest Designer Outlet shopping in is within a few miles.

It was wonderful, as usual!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend that the management of the condo's (not the owner's) find another time to clean the floor tiles in the lobby other than 10:00 am checkout time. They could have had the cleaning crew to come in during the night or a time when there would be less traffic. There was only one elevator being used & people on other floors were trying to get down, and we had 6 people & all our luggage(because they had the 2nd one blocked, because people were cleaning the floors). Of course we took care of the 2 chairs and umbrella situation. We were VERY pleased with the owners and our stay. WE LOVE THAT PLACE.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. We are very pleased that you found the condo to be what you had expected and it sounds like maybe even more!..We will look forward to your coming back hopefully again and again. We do acknowledge that the beds are great! We try to keep them that way because we realize that when you play hard......you have to sleep hard too! We have a furniture and bedding business so we can keep the unit in good shape. Have a good winter and come back in 2015. Our rates are frozen until March of 2015 so you can get the 2014 rates until then. So glad the wedding went great!!

Loved this condo!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our Destin vacation and loved staying at Gulfgate. The location is perfect! It was close to lots of restaurants and shopping and this unit is literally only steps from the beach! The condo was very nice, spacious and clean and had everything we needed. The beach chairs and umbrella set up on the beach was awesome! Jeffry, the owner, was amazing to work with. She had everything ready in advance so we didn't have to stop at the desk to check in (huge time saver) and she was able to accommodate our early arrival! Needless to say, we didn't want to leave! We would HIGHLY recommend this condo!

Owner's Response: Dear Stacey and crew:
I know the wedding was beautiful. I was sorry to miss it, in fact.
Thanks for the nice review of our condo. Hopefully, you can come back and see the new furniture for the Living Room. I sincerely hope your flight home was a good one and hope your plans include coming back to visit again. We will do everything we can to make your trip a real treasure.
Sincerely,
Jeffry and Ralph Armstrong

Beachlover

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place with all the comforts of home and then some! Lots of extras! Loved the umbrella and chairs on beach. It made it very nice. My family loves to snorkel and spent several hours each morning looking at the sea life. They saw singrays, puffer fish, and best of all sea turtles. The water was spectacular! Loved every minute of our vacation! We will definitely be back!

Beach Therapy!

  • 5 of 5
Fell in love with this unit the moment our toes hit the sand! We have been coming to Destin for years and this has been our favorite condo hands down. The unit was clean, quiet, comfortable and well decorated. The views were spectacular! I have never met the owners but felt as though we were old friends. Jeffry is awesome! We hope to return next summer for more "beach therapy". It's our happy place ;)

Owner's Response: Dear Alanna:
I so enjoyed taking care of you and your family. My husband and I believe that is exactly what we are here for........to take care of our guests. I would feel bad if someone didn't have a great time at 'our little piece of heaven on the beach'. Do try to come back and see the new projects we are planning for Gulfgate 105. New cabinets for kitchen and new Living Room furniture top the list....
We will still have three recliners so that more people can have that comfy place to sit and watch the Gulf (or TV, if there is time).
Comfort is important to us and we think it is to our guest. If you think of something you needed that we didn't offer, please let me know and I will do my best to 'make it happen'. Hope to see ya'll again soon. Jeffry (and Ralphie)

Absolutely AMAZING Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a absolutely wonderful vacation in this condo. We chose this location because of the convenient access to the beach and because of the gorgeous views from the patio and bedroom. My husband HATES to drag all of the beach chairs, sand toys, canopy, and cooler across the parking lot and street so I thought this condo would be a nice break for him. It was SO EASY because we were able to go down one floor and right out to the beach. This made all of the difference in the world to him. The condo was so clean and beautifully decorated. It also has it's very own icemaker, so that was a huge plus as well. The best part was the owner, Jeffry. She was always extremely helpful and accommodating. She made us feel like she TRULY wanted us to have the time of our lives and she was willing to help out with anything to accomplish that. I loved working with her on getting our trip planned and it went without a hitch. I have no doubt that we have found our permanent vacation place for every year we come back. Best vacation ever!

Owner's Response: Dear "New Friend" Bridget and family:
Even though we never really met, it seems like we know each other. You made me feel so good with your comments and it is me that is supposed to be taking good care of you, my guests. Anyway, the feeling is mutual, I think. We do hope you had "A BALL" and want to share out little piece of heavenly beach again. We have plans for re-decorating a bit this fall and also putting in new kitchen cabinets. Maybe the next time ya'll come you will have some new scenery. I know it is also good to get back home! Enjoy your lives to fullest each day and come back to see us.
God Bless you all. Jeffry (and Ralph)

The address is 1180 Scenic Highway 98, which means we are not on the busy part of Highway 98. We have tried almost all of the restaurants in a 10 mile area and can give you updates on them all........Walk straight down the beach from our condo to 'The Back Porch'. It is only about 800 feet. Dewey Destin's, Harbor Docks, Tuscany, Fisherman's Warf, La Familia(Italian) and Harry T's are all within about 3 miles. So many choices of where to eat........How about Shake's for a Hot Fudge sundae as a 'nite cap'. We will be glad to fill you in on much much more.

Enjoy the quiet serenity of drinking your coffee on the balcony, going out for a gourmet dinner, cooking a great meal in the unit or maybe just watching a great sunset on the beach/balcony.
