Guestbook comments from the manager

This was by far our best VRBO rental yet! The house was super clean which is the most important thing for me. The included golf cart made going to the beach a cinch-we were there in less than 2 minutes. The app was great. We had trouble connecting to the wifi, but someone called us and it was fixed within the hour. There were 5 people in our group. Each couple had their own private bathrooms and my son had his own as well, but it could also have served as a guest bathroom. The backyard was fenced in which made it great to bring our golden retriever so she could sit outside in the shade with us when she wanted. I highly recommend this rental...all members of our party loved it.

Reviewer Comments:

Fantastic house, everything you need , except one roll of toilet paper to share between 3 bathrooms when we arrived, so we had to go to store immediately. Golf cart was especially nice. The company Destin Palms we rented from was nice after we arrived, but with our worry about Hurricane Irma's arrival, they were rude regarding me calling to inquire about Florida state of emergency and our arrival. We will definitely rent this house again.

Reviewer Comments:

We were very disappointed with the condition of the property. We stayed in this property 4 years ago and had a wonderful experience. Four years ago the property was clean, plenty of linens, everything was in working order, beach chairs, etc. This trip was different...where to begin...the pool area had mold on the ground surrounding the pool, the fans by the pool were black with dirt, the chairs were dirty and not in working condition. The propert description said it sleeps 14 yet there were 8 bath towels and two raggity wash clothes for the kitchen. There was mold in the master shower. Dirt on the floor when we arrived and finger prints on windows and mirrors. The dishwasher broke our second day there, little communication on getting it fixed and when people were coming to fix it. Rude staff when we called 30 minutes before check in to get the gate code; rude staff at the club house. This property is poorly managed and i would not recommend staying here unless you enjoy mold, dirt and being treated poorly by staff. The owners should consider taking over property management themselves (they did a better job) or consider a new company. We were very disappointed with the condition of the property. Positives: dispite the condition of the house, my family had a great time and love the location of the property.

Reviewer Comments:

I have nothing but good things to say about our experience while staying at Heaven's Gate. The rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable, and the pool area was nice. It is close to the beach and having the golf cart made it much better for my husband who has difficulty walking. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Reviewer Comments:

This house is so beautiful and well maintained. We loved the private pool in the back yard. The pool was very clean and the back yard is well maintained. We were able to bring our lab and she loved the walking trail right out the back gate. That was so nice for walks and potty breaks!!! The golf cart was a wonderful perk to have. We used it everyday. We took it shopping, to the beach and would take it to dinner. Made parking a breeze. This property is in a great location. The owner even let us bring our jet skis and keep them in the garage. We griled out allot. The grill is on a gas line from the house so you never have to worry about running out of gas. This property was amazing and we had one of our best vacations ever!!! I would highly recommend this house to anyone. Very spaceuos and great layout. The neighborhood was nice and gated. The neighbors were friendly and welcoming! We did not want to leave but will be back next year for sure!!! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home and property. We went back home so relaxed~

We really enjoyed our stay at Heaven's Gate. The house was very clean, plenty of room for the family and dog and a nice outdoor pool to cool off in. Getting the golf cart with the rental was awesome, we took it to the beach each day and around the area up and down scenic 98. The house is perfectly located, ride to the beach was 2 mins and you could walk to the park and community pool in less than 2 mins as well. We would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful! First time renting a home at the beach. The only issue we had was the neighbors pressure washing the outside of the house next door. I've had this happen in a hotel too, so just my luck! Pool would have been nicer if heated. Great for the family!!!!

Owner's Response: After renting a beach house for your vacation, you may never want to stay in a condo again! We hope you'll come back and stay with us next spring! Be sure to ask about heating the pool - it is an option! ~The Destin Palms Management Team
