Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was very nice and comfortable for our family. We had a fantastic time in Destin and loved the location of the home to the beach and to the pool. Everything was so close and easy to walk back and forth. We appreciate the opportunity to stay at your property and will definitely look at your properties again the next time we visit Florida.

Beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

We booked our trip very last minute and couldn’t have been happier with the property we chose. Everything was exactly as pictured, very clean and comfortable. The beach was picture perfect-seriously the prettiest I’ve seen it in almost 20 years-and the pool was clean and very close.

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We will definitely be back!

PS-the television in the living room was a bit of a mystery...randomly would switch over to Netflix at times. We never did figure out how to work that!!

WOW. This was everything we expected and more.

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so happy and excited when we pulled up to the house and found it to be just like the pictures. And the inside was fantastic, the layout was just what we expected and close to everything. Even the little kiddos were easy to please. I can't wait to go back to paradise, the people at Forever Vacation Rentals were so easy to work with. We'll be staying here again and I think you should too!!!

Needs some deep cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

Great house and beach. House had a great set up. Furniture could use some cleaning. Floors and balcony could use cleaning. Bathroom at pool could use a lot of work, surprising for this type of community. Overall comfortable house and great set up.

Located in the Florida Panhandle, the City of Destin has a rich historical heritage dating back to American Indian inhabitants as early as the seventh century A.D. Spanish explorers surveyed Florida in 1538. Don Francisco Tapia was commissioned to survey the Florida coast and in 1693, drew the first known map of East Pass and its shores.

Destin traces its immediate history to a fisherman, Captain Leonard Destin, who moved here from New London, Connecticut, and settled in Northwest Florida in about 1845. Captain Destin pioneered the fishing industry and Destin has maintained this heritage to the present.

Destin is known as the 'World's Luckiest Fishing Village.' The city houses the largest and most elaborately equipped fishing fleet in the State of Florida. In addition to fishing, recreational opportunities include golf, tennis and water sports, including diving and snorkeling. The 100 Fathom curve draws closer to Destin than any other spot in Florida providing the speediest deep-water access on the Gulf.
