THE PERCH AT GULFVIEW is the perfect place for your family's beach vacation! Check out our video!

Our top-floor west facing unit has been newly redecorated and fully furnished with every guest in mind.

The kitchen now has brand new Whirlpool stainless steel appliances and is completely stocked with all the tools you will need to create any beach side dish you can imagine. The open-floor living area has VAULTED CEILING (a unique feature of top-floor units) which makes the space feel larger and more comfortable. You will also enjoy a peaceful partial WEST VIEW of the ocean from the living room and balcony.

We free high speed Wi-Fi and provide entertainment in every room, including a BRAND-NEW FLAT-SCREEN TV in the living room! Both pools and Jacuzzi tub are right downstairs next to the BBQ grills and the cutest courtyard with palm trees that are as tall as the three-story building! Oh and the BEACH...it's gorgeous, it's right across the street and it's private!

When you are back from the beach, you will appreciate the condo's tile floors throughout. The unit is always clean and easy to maintain clean! We offer comfortable sleeping arrangements for six guests. A private bedroom with a queen size bed, a bunk area (a must have for kids!) and a brand-new sofa bed with a queen size Sealy Posturepedic mattress in the living room.

We are standing by to assist with your vacation planning so feel free to be in touch.

About The Owner

Our family loves travelling and staying in condos instead of hotels. It gives us more of a local feel for the place we are visiting. When we decided to buy a vacation home, we had no doubt Destin was the place! We have been coming to Destin since 2002. We have been to many many beaches including in Europe and South America - and there is nothing like the white-sandy beaches of Destin, FL! We hope your family will feel at home in our condo and bring home some wonderful memories!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Sandestin

We chose this condo first because it is located in our ALL TIME FAVORITE LOCATION, Old Hwy 98. It does not feel like Destin if we are not on Old 98 - its miles of trails are perfect for running, cycling or just taking long picturesque walks. Second, we fell in love with the condo itself and its west-facing view of the Emerald Waters. We found the condo peaceful, nicely decorated and situated in a small complex that is just perfect for families – two pools (one heated in the winter), a Jacuzzi tub, barbecue grills, a cute courtyard with palm trees as tall as the three-story complex and a private beach! We chose to name it The Perch at Gulfview because of the way we feel when we walk into our condo – a resting place with a nice view!

What makes this condo unique

Third-floor unit (vaulted ceiling and no neighbors above you )

West-facing view (you can sleep in even if you get the couch, and enjoy a glass of wine watching gorgeous skies in the afternoon)

Tile throughout (no sand bothering you when you are back from the beach - easy clean-up)

Not having to carry a whole lot to the beach (especially important if you have kids, just walk back to the unit for potty visits or to grab a forgotten toy)

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was very nice. Thank you so much for renting it out to us. It was just the right size and a perfect location. The kids had a blast on the bunkbed. The walk to the beach was really short and we were glad to find an umbrella in the condo. Thanks again.

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
I normally read these reviews with a grain of salt, since these are someone's opinions. A lot of factors go into a great place to stay, and some of those are uncontrollable to the owner (weather, neighbors, grumpy renters, etc..). My wife and I stayed 3 nights here and it was perfect. If I had anything to complain about was climbing 3 stairs after being total exhausted from the fun that we had in Florida. Bed was good, place is well furnished, there is a view of the water, close walk to the beach, right above the pool. I will definitely stay again.

Great for single family or several adults

  • 5 of 5
We are a family with two small children who are one and three. We spent the better part of a week at this condo in early September. Our original plan was to share with another family who has a three year old. Due to last minute conflicts, they were unable to join us. We are so glad that they didn't. While there may be the bed space for six people, the condo does not have the room to fit six when you are not asleep. Especially if three of those six are children. Had the other family joined us, we would have been stepping all over each other. But, with just the four of us, the condo was big enough. I would imagine that four or so single adults could probably make it work as well. The location is great. It is a couple minute walk to the beach. There are three restaurants within just a few minutes walk as well and if you have a car, everything you could need is just a few minutes drive. The two pools on site are nice if you want to lay out or take a dip without having to worry about sand. Having a kitchen was nice for making snacks/lunch/breakfast but if you are looking to cook a gourmet meal, keep in mind that all you have are utensils and pots/pans (no spices). We were also surprised to find there were no trashbags or even a scrub pad for dishes. All in all, we were very happy with our stay and would recommend this condo to others, especially if you don't anticipate spending a great deal of time indoors.

First Time at Destin

  • 5 of 5
Just got back and wish we could go again. This was mine and my husbands first trip to Destin. The beach and water was beautiful. My son and his fiancee joined us but they have been to Destin several times. The condo was perfect, exactly what you expected from the pictures. The only thing is that we couldn't get the DVD player to work, we wanted to watch a movie late one night and could not get it to come on. My son is pretty tech savvy but he could not get it to work. If there is nothing wrong with the player, maybe you could have instructions on how to operate. Just a thought, however it did not keep us from having a wonderful time. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay on Destin! We value our guests' feedback. We will be in Destin Labor Day weekend and will look to replace the Bu-Ray player. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Clean & close to the beach

Clean & close to the beach
  • 3 of 5
The owners were very nice and accommodating. The condo is across the street from the beach and it only takes minutes to walk. There are 2 pools which is nice. There are plenty of things to do that don't cost a lot. During our trip we went snorkeling, kayaking, dolphin watching, horseback riding & deep sea fishing. We all had a wonderful time. I would rate it higher but the bed and couch/sleeper sofa we really uncomfortable, the washer/dryer are communal (bring quarters) and there were always a ton of little kids in the hot tub. After a long day of activities we just wanted to kick back and relax. But having a long hot shower made up for it. All 4 of us were able to take as long of a shower as we wanted & the water never lost pressure or temperature. This has been our best trip to Florida.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate your staying with us. We take great pride in making our beach condo our home away from home and strive to make it as comfortable as our own home. As a matter of fact, we checked in immediately after you checked out. Although we did not find the current mattresses uncomfortable, we purchased a brand new mattress for the master bedroom and new bedding for all the beds. New photos will be posted soon! The living room mattress is a new Tempurpedic mattress. As far as sofas go, that is as comfortable as it gets. We had a five-star rating prior to your review. We have so many online reviews and notes from guests in our guest book raving about the condo that we find your three star rating unfair. For the sake of others reading this though, we would like to point out that we do not advertise having a private laundry room. There are many laundry facilities throughout the complex, and one conveniently located a couple of steps from our door. As for the pool areas, with so much to do within walking distance or a short drive, people don't generally spend a lot of time here. There is a peak time just before dinner when the pools may be busier than other times. We are happy to hear that your family enjoyed your stay and was able to do so many fun activities. Our family loves traveling and have been blessed to visit many beaches in the US and abroad. But to us nothing beats the white sandy beaches of Destin! We hope you all come back!

Fantastic Family Vacation, Loved this Place!

  • 5 of 5
Very clean condo right across the street from a private beach! Owners were very quick to respond to our questions, we had no issues with the property. It was exactly as described and the pictures are a good representation of the condo. Loved having a fully stocked kitchen, the beach chairs & umbrella came in handy and the beds were very comfortable. There was a very short walk to the beach and nice ocean views. The common areas of the complex were very clean and well maintained. Very fast wifi. We would love to go back and definitely recommend this property to anyone.

As for restaurants, we would recommend the Donut Hole for breakfast and taking the short walk down the street to Pompano Joe's. Also loved Margartaville, AJ's Seafood and Shorty's in Grayton Beach. Was very disappointed in Fudpucker's, definitely our least favorite restaurant.

Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for our 1st anniversary. First of all, it is SO clean and very well equipped. They have everything you need and more (including champagne glasses, which we forgot! Even a crock pot!) The location is perfect, right bewteen Pompano Joes and The Crab Trap and literally steps to the beach. Despite the rain the 1st 2 days, we had a great time enjoying the balcony and cooking in the kitchen. Would be great with children. The bathroom is huge!

Within walking distance to Pompano Joe's, a popular local seafood place right on the beach. Also walk to Captain Dave's and The Crab Trap (the latter about 1 mile away though). A five-minute drive to Silver Sand's Outlet Mall, Destin Commons, Sundestin Golf Course, Publix Grocery Store and Wal-Mart. Miramar Beach is right in the middle of it all!
