All Destin Palms Vacations guests receive a free Destin Palms VIP Perks Card that provides free passes to the area's most popular attractions. Each day of your stay, you will receive one free adult pass to a charter fishing excursion, a dolphin cruise aboard the SeaBlaster speed boat, and 18-holes of golfing at three different Sandestin courses.

The free passes are per reservation and not per guest. They are non-cumulative. Guests can use passes at different activities on the same day. For instance, a guest could play 18 holes of golf for free in the morning and then go on a free dolphin cruise on the same afternoon. The card also entitles you to do an activity more than once for free. For example, if you wanted to golf daily, each day of your stay (excluding day of departure), one person in your party could golf for free. Free golf and charter fishing excursions are available year-round. The dolphin cruise operates March-October.

We have additional golf carts and bikes for daily or weekly rental at a discounted rate to our guests. Please contact us for availability.

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:

It was a great experience. Loved the pool and golf cart. The only thing I might change is that a couple of the beds are squeaky (the twin in the master and a couple where the bunk beds are). Other than that this house was awesome!

Reviewer Comments:

My family had a lovely time at Heaven's Gate. The house is beautiful and nicely laid out. Furnishings are nice - beds are comfy and linens/towels good quality. The location is Fabulous! A short walk or ride to the beach. The house was very clean,. My only complaint is the lack of necessities. There is just enough toilet paper, paper towels, coffee, trash bags for a couple nights. There were no cleaning products so you could clean up after your stay and leave it in the condition you found it. A spray bottle of cleaner would have been nice. No dish soap, however a couple of dishwasher tabs. Beach chairs were pretty gross - stained and rusted - and should be replaced. Golf cart was great - we used it to get to the beach a couple times. Management was Really good - friendly and helpful. We had a couple small issues that were taken care of immediately.

We were very pleased with Heaven's Gate. The home is large, spacious and clean. The pool was perfect and the golf cart was great for those times we headed to beach. We will back in the spring for another stay at Heaven's Gate.

Reviewer Comments:

Our Family stayed at Heaven's Gate in July of 2016. The property description was accurate. The private pool was beautiful and the beach was a very short golf cart ride, maybe 30 seconds. The house was spacious and well maintained. The master bath shower did drain very slowly but we informed the property manager at the end of our stay and I'm hopeful it was addressed before the next guests arrived. We did have an issue with being unable to lock the front door initially. We called and they sent someone out to fix immediately. It was a beautiful house. Our family loved the vacation. There was a nice green space in the backyard for our dog. We would recommend this property. We will definitely plan our next beach vacation here!
