                                                            Great house

                                                            Katie H.

                                                            We loved staying here. We talked about booking it again for next year. Very short walk to beach. Very short walk to pool. Heater does not get turned on until end of October so pool was very cold early October. Lots of space inside. Lots of beds and bathrooms. Note that website says it has a stroller - we never found one. It said pack n plays - we only found one. It had 5 bikes in the garage. 2 were for kids but no training wheels or helmets. It had 2 blow up boats and very little beach sand toys so you will want to bring your own. Owners provided 2 garbage bags, 1 roll of paper towels, 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, and a bar of soap and hotel size shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom. You will want to bring your own beach towels. The kitchen had everything we needed/ wanted except a waffle maker, but we didn't expect them to have one. Lots of stairs but wasn't a major problem for us and we had a 19 month old.

                                                            Very Comfortable

                                                            Ken N.Collierville TN

                                                            Our second time to spend time at this home. We enjoyed a perfect fall weather week. One of our favorite houses in this exceptional subdivision. Can't wait to book our next trip.

                                                            Great location; could have been cleaner and better kept

                                                            Lori W.

                                                            The location is great for a property not directly on the beach. It is 3 houses down. Very easy walk. Across from the pool. If you have more than two cars you might have some challenges w parking. Bring your own chairs or rent (easy to do $140/ week in summer) because those at the house are rusted and not very good. One broke bc of rust when we sat in it. There are a lot of good things about this property; it is a newer home but it feels like the owners haven't checked in on it in a while or they just don't want to put the money into keeping up. The couches and chairs in the living room were dingy. All of the mattresses were uncomfortable and there are two very flat pillows on the beds. The comforters need to be changed out because I don't think cleaning will help at this point. Despite all of that, the house would have been much improved if it were cleaned properly. Cabinets had stuff on them in both the kitchen and baths. The carpets were not vacuumed. So we vacuumed on our vacation. Took a minute to figure out how to use the vacuum system. It vents out through the house. But even when it sounds like it's on, you have to use a switch to get the suction to work. I don't think the cleaning people know that. The utensils in the kitchen needed to be cleaned before use as well. If all of these things were improved this house would be awesome!!

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            First, we would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review, however we must say, we are a bit disheartened that you first didn't come to us with the issues you mentioned. We take great pride in the homes we manage and our ultimate goal is to ensure our guest have an enjoyable experience. I can assure you that as the Owner of Forever Vacation Rentals, I personally walk this property after each guest departs and before each guest arrives. Had I known that you had concerns during your stay, we would of made every effort to resolve them immediately....I would of personally come and vacuumed if needed. Regarding the drawers and the utensils, again, we would of called our cleaners to have them finish their job and I apologize that I didn't catch it during my inspection. We are proud to say that we have had the same cleaners for over 4 years, so your claim is very surprising.

                                                            I must mention that the Owners of the home are very involved and stay at their home multiple times a year. If the home needed extra care (such as mattresses, comforters or pillows) they would address it. This isn't just an investment to them, but also their 2nd home. I hope you took time to read the handwritten journal entries of other vacationers (its the book that was on the desk on the 1st floor). The Owners cherish the moments captured in this journal and is truly the reason for them opening their home to others.

                                                            For any future renter, please do not hesitate to contact us during your stay at Destin Sea Star. We are always happy to help! We hope that Lori and her family will stay with us again!

                                                            StefanieCookeville TN

                                                            Sea Star is an incredible house in the perfect spot. It's only steps from both the beach and pool. The kitchen has pretty much everything you would need, plus some. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. We will DEFINITELY be staying here in the future!

                                                            Great vacation home

                                                            TN BEACH BUMJasper, TN

                                                            Our stay at Seastar in Destiny By The Sea was good. The weather was awesome and so was the home. We had great service from the owners the entire visit if there was an issue they handled it promptly. I would give this house 5 stars for everything except parking. It only has room for 2 vehicles in the driveway and the spare parking is not enough for the neighborhood. So just keep that in mind if your party has more than 2 vehicles when renting this home. We would def stay here again, the property is beautiful and the beach access is so close and with main roads to cross. Overall a great experience here and would recommend this home except anyone that can't climb stairs because it is full of stairs :)

                                                            This house was very comfortable and the location to the board walk made getting to the beach or pool very easy. We enjoyed a very relaxing week before starting back to school. We have stayed in 7 different houses in Destiny-by-the-Sea and would stay here again.
