Reviewer Comments:

The house was wonderfully located right on the beach. You almost didn't need to rent chairs and umbrellas as you felt like you were right on the beach from the back deck area. The house was nicely furnished and had many great amenities. We can't wait to come and stay again. The Royal Destinations staff were very helpful and informative.

The house is amazing! Clean, spacious, everything you need for a perfect stay. We had over 20 people staying there for a fantasy football draft long weekend and, since there's so much room and so much to do (beach, pool, lower deck, upper deck, side yard, shops/restaurants across the street) it never felt crowded. Plenty of fridges, bathrooms, space. Two couples didn't have little kids so the guesthouse was a perfect place for them to stay (sleep in later, take a break from kid mayhem). All around great experience. Can't wait to come back next year.

Reviewer Comments:

This is the second year we've rented this property, and there are many reasons why we came back! Our group consisted of 3 generations of family & friends ranging in age from 3 to 65. The furnishings & the casual, classy atmosphere of the home is great! The location right on the beach is perfect. It's great to be steps away from a fresh drink & a bathroom. The expansion of the deck was perfect! We spent long mornings enjoying our coffee out there. We also loved the new outdoor shower and the changes to the screened in porch. With such a large group, the screened in porch was a second dining area for every meal. The kitchen is great! We gave both dishwashers and the oven a good workout! The 2nd fridge in the laundry room was fully utilized as well! The layout of the house is great with many private areas to sit and read or enjoy conversation with a smaller group. While the new morning kitchen upstairs is nice, we didn't utilize it much. The drawer-style fridges there were a nice touch. The management company was VERY responsive to our minor issues. The app was extremely helpful! The garage is very spacious & there is so much parking in the driveway! A couple of areas for improvement are: The beach service with only two chairs for such a large home is silly. At the very least, some folding chairs should be available in the garage as it's often hard to travel with chairs. While the master bedroom is spacious and luxurious, it has a sofa bed to sleep two more people. Because the connected master bathroom has no door, it's awkward (privacy-wise) to have 4 people in that room. It would be helpful to know what type of coffee filters to buy (not the cone type) & K-Cups ahead of time. We really struggled with not being able to recycle. As a big group, we generated many items to recycle and would have loved a way to not add to the landfill. <

Great house but needs repair

  • 4 of 5

We really loved the house as it was spacious and was directly on the beach. The decor is beautiful and the back deck was a favorite. The pump to the pool was broken every day making the pool water murky. The dishwasher was broken and flooded the kitchen floor. We had to have a repair man out every day. For over $23,000 for the week, we expected the house to be ready for renters and not a work in progress.

Simply the Best. The house has everything anyone could ask for. The kitchen is very well equipped. We had one service issue that was taken care of immediately and very professionally. The only downside was the construction to the east was noisy.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for your review of Forever Grateful! You couldn't ask for more from the beautiful Gulf front home. With direct private access just off the back of the home, it makes quick trips back up to the house for a bite to eat a breeze! Also, with the newly built decking, extending out over the beach dunes, you feel like your sitting right on the beach. Imagine having that breakfast and coffee watching the sunrise, or that glass of wine under the moonlight. Its the perfect new addition to the home. There are also many new improvements on the interior as well, on the most popular being the new mini bar on the 2nd floor. We do hope to see you again soon!

our vacation was just wonderful. The house felt like a home. We were so pleased at how the home was renovated and decorated. It was very clean which is very important! We have stayed in other homes in the Destin area and none were as clean and beautiful as Forever Grateful. We would like to come again, especially if it is maintained like this.
