About Michael and Tracy D'Avella

After vacationing in Destin we fell in love with the area and decided to purchase this wonderful condo located near everything that Destin has to offer. We have made wonderful family memories here and absolutely love this condo. It is so beautiful and comfortable.

Michael and Tracy D'Avella purchased this condo in 2007

Why Michael and Tracy D'Avella chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

The first time we walked in the door we saw that spectacular view and knew that this was the one! The palm tree lined lake is so beautiful. The living room and master bedroom are large and very comfortable. The location near all the fun things to do in Destin is just perfect. We love this condo and are certain you will too.

What makes this condo unique

Location! Location! Location! You can walk to the beach, Big Kahuna's Water Park, Putt Putt golf, and restaurants. It is in a quiet area even though it is only 3 miles to the Famous Destin Harbor.

Gulf Terrace Condo, Destin Fl

  • 5 of 5

The location was ideal for the two of us to explore and was clean and well equipped for every occasion. It was great that the owners, Tracy and Mike had left abundant information in the condo explaining attractions, eateries and nightlife. Good on you guys, you covered everything that a stranger would need visiting Destin. We had a great time and would recommend anyone to visit Gulf Terrace.

Enjoyed our stay in Destin. Condo was very nice. Lake view and fountain very pretty. Close to beach. We would have liked a heated pool.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice compliments. We love the beautiful view and the condo too. We did tell you that the pool was not heated prior to you booking the December month. We do own other properties in Destin with heated pools so next year we hope you can book your dates early and get in one of those.
