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.

Location

Car: necessary

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.

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.

Great Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with multiple couples for a family celebration. The house was fantastic! It's perfect for multiple families. All bedrooms are comfortable, clean and beautiful with their own large bathrooms. The layout is such that each couple got their "own away space" but the main floor offered great space for gathering for meals and family time. The kitchen was perfect with up-to-date appliances and large for multiple cooks. The balcony on this floor was great for grilling and eating outside. The upstairs masters suite is gorgeous and is a living area all its own with a beautiful balcony. The mid-floor bedroom offers a king-sized bed and large bathroom with huge walk-in shower. The downstairs offers a beautiful bedroom with a queen bed and bathroom and a separate bunkroom for kids. We didn't have any kids with us but we'll look at bringing them next time! The downstairs has a bunkroom, foosball table and Xbox which would be perfect for the kids to have their own space. House was immaculate, with up-to--date furniture and décor and had everything we needed for a great stay. The beach is only a 2 minute walk from the house and boogie boards, floats and folding chairs are provided to make it a fun day at the beach. For those that don't want to go to the beach, there is a community swimming pool about 5 houses down. The property is in a beautiful and quiet, gated location with its own private beach. Close to restaurants and shopping. Owners promptly replied to all inquiries. This house is a value at its price! Would definitely recommend this property! This will be top of our list for staying in Destin when we visit again.

Fab House in a Fab Location...

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation! Life's a Beach was amazing and very-well appointed. It was the perfect amount of space for 6 adults. We loved how the beach was a short (less than 2 minute) walk to the beach. We are starting to plan our summer vacation, and Life's a Beach is at the top of our list!
