Very Nice Home    Sep 16, 2018




Very nice home, was in good condition and clean when we arrived.  Enjoyed the pool and outdoor grill a lot, nice large kitchen with all the amenities as we ate at home most of our vacation.  Brought our two Shepherd mixes with us so the home is dog friendly but I think they changed their policy to small dogs only.  Overall a great home for a large family to enjoy a beach vacation. 

Susana Sanchez

Perfect vacation home    Jul 14, 2018




The house was beautiful and clean. Very spacious. The kids loved the pool. The best part of the house was the golf cart. It would take us everywhere it was very convenient. If only the golf cart was a little bigger. Beautiful neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this home to family and friends.

June 2018 Stay    Jun 30, 2018



The house was spotless upon arrival.We had the grocery delivery service to stock the kitchen,so it was great after traveling nine hours,to come in to the rental with the fridge full and the pantry shelves stocked.This is a great rental for people with pets.Many nice paths for dog walking.We had to get up early to get chairs and parking for the golf cart at the James Lee park.Very crowded for fourth of July,but you wouldn't notice it in Destiny East.A great gated community where we always felt safe.The amenities are great.Enjoyed the pool at this house as well as the gas grill.

My wife and I had a great time the week we spent at Heavens Gate. Everything was just as promised when we arrived. Thanks for the great vacation at your home.

Great location, great home    May 20, 2017




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.

First Time Vacation Home Renter    May 06, 2017




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!!!!

Renee W.

Very nice and clean.    May 01, 2017




The house was perfect.  Clean, well maintained and so close to the beach.  Loved having the convenience of the golf cart also!  This was our first trip to Destin and the only complaint we had was no ones fault.  The weather was nice the first two days, not so much the next three days.  Would love to go back and get the full beach experience!  Highly recommend Heavens Gate!

Heaven's Gate    Apr 20, 2017




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!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations at Heaven's Gate. Each room was beautifully arranged and met our expectations as indicated in the pictures. It's a very nice and well-kept home and we would stay there again!

Great Stay...    Sep 28, 2016




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.

Heavens Gate    Sep 01, 2016




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.

Great Summer Vactation!    Jul 09, 2016




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!

Awesome Rental Home!    May 28, 2016




This house was immaculately clean, which is the most important thing to me. We had 2 couples and 1 child. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. Plenty of room for everyone. The fenced in back yard was great for our golden retriever. The rental included a golf cart which made the trip (short) to the beach and restaurants even quicker, especially with an older couple with mobility issues. I highly recommend!!
