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.

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!

Nice House with Great Access to Beach

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed in Lifes a Beach in Mid-July. We had six adults and three kids, ages 4, 2 & 5 months. The house was great! Everything was clean and comfortable, and it had everything you would expect to find in a beach rental. The walk to the beach is very short. My 4 & 2 year old made it everyday, no problem. It's only a couple minutes. We really liked having the garage too, as we could come in and just dump our beach stuff in there. Overall this house was exactly as advertised.

In addition to the house being great, the rental agents, Forever Vacation Rentals, were great to work with as well. Shannon and Jillena were very helpful and prompt in returning all of our phone calls and emails. On the Saturday of check-in we showed up a couple hours before 4:00. The house was clean and Shannon was just finishing his inspection. He let us into the house about 1:00 so we could start at beach early. Thanks again for that!

Overall I was very happy with all aspects of this rental. Both the house and rental company were great.

Great House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with another family, 4 adults, 5 children, for a spring break get-away. The layout of the house is perfect for multiple families or a single family with many children. The downstairs offered a bunkroom, queen bedroom, foosball table and Xbox which was perfect for the kids after coming in from the beach or pool while the adults enjoyed cocktails on one of the two balconies. The middle level of the house was a great open space where we could all eat together or relax on the balcony and included a king bedroom with private bath . The third level of the home was gorgeous with a private master suite that encompassed the entire floor. House was immaculately maintained with everything needed for a great stay. Owners promptly replied to all inquiries. Would definitely recommend this property!

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.
