Great Experience!


Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We loved the open floor plan. It's in a great location in the community. The kids loved the pool and also being close to the playground. We will definitely stay here again.

Great Accommodations


Thank you for the wonderful accommodations. We couldn't have asked for any nicer of a home. It made our stay perfect. We loved our own private pool and the golf cart was a plus for getting around. I would definitely recommend your home to others. 


Joanie . from , 08/26/2019

Beautiful Home!


Thank you for allowing us to rent your house. It is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only bad part is that we cant stay longer! lol. We hope to rent from you again. 


Tiffani . from , 08/26/2019

Fun Family Vacation!


The children really enjoyed your pool, which they literally lived in! We also enjoyed being right across the lane from the community pool and center. We loved the golf cart and having very close access to the beach, which we really enjoyed. We would stay here again. Thank you very much for your hospitality. 


The Blake's . from , 08/26/2019

Wonderful Vacation


We've stayed in this home many times since 2014 and have always enjoyed it, especially the pool! You are blessed to have such a beautiful home in paradise!

June 2015 Stay


Our family has been coming to destin for years, we stayed at Destiny West last time, but Heavens Gate was the best yet!!!! Everything we need!!!! Pool was great!!! Short walk to the community pool, golf cart allowed us fast access to the beach!!! Our little dog GiGi loved the fenced in back yard!!! I give it 4.8 stars!!! Only suggestions maybe updated washer and dryer! We will be back next year for 2 weeks!!! The water heater was out when we arrive, but they had it fixed super fast!!! Again great vacation!! Hats off to destiny east!!!! The Brooks Family


Lana B. from Harrogate, 08/19/2019

May 2016 Stay


Heaven's Gate far exceeded our expectations as soon as we opened the front door! It was bigger than I thought it would be, which was wonderful for our party of 6 people and 3 dogs. The house was well kept and clean. The yard is fenced in which allowed our dogs to enjoy vacation with us. The golf cart was helpful when just running back and forth to the beach, as the walk was just a little inconvenient with beach toys, chairs, etc. The staff at Destin Palms makes communication easy and were all very friendly in all our interactions. I hope to come back to stay at Heaven's Gate later this year!


Christa P. from , 08/19/2019

June 2016 Stay


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.

Christopher K. from Osage Beach , 08/19/2019

June 2018 Stay


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.


Terry S. from Hayesville, 11/26/2018

Wonderful Home in Destiny East

"My husband and I recently stayed at this wonderful home in Destin. We had six adults staying and the house and is very spacious, clean and well maintained. The home is beautifully furnished and the beds are very comfortable. The location is great--it is walking distance to the Amenity Center, close to the beautiful beach, restaurants and shopping. The golf cart was great to get around in and the pool was very nice. The home is located in a beautiful area and is very quiet. We would definitely return to this home and highly recommend Heaven's Gate. "

Response from Destin Palms:

"Kimberly, you and your family were a pleasure to host. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We look forward to your next stay with us! Best Regards , Destin Palms Management "

"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. "

"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."

The property management group answered are questions immediately. We have been coming to Destin for over 15 years and have stayed in Destiny East the past 2 and love the location and the beach access at The Crab Trap."

Response from Destin Palms:

"I have nothing but good things to say about our experience while staying at Heaven's Gate. The rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable, and the pool area was nice. It is close to the beach and having the golf cart made it much better for my husband who has difficulty walking. I would recommend this place to everyone."

Don T. from , 07/31/2017

Response from Destin Palms:

"Your feedback is appreciated. We take pride in our homes and try to ensure every guests enjoys their stay. Destin Palms Management"

"This house is so beautiful and well maintained. We loved the private pool in the back yard. The pool was very clean and the back yard is well maintained. We were able to bring our lab and she loved the walking trail right out the back gate. That was so nice for walks and potty breaks!!! The golf cart was a wonderful perk to have. We used it everyday. We took it shopping, to the beach and would take it to dinner. Made parking a breeze. This property is in a great location. The owner even let us bring our jet skis and keep them in the garage. We griled out allot. The grill is on a gas line from the house so you never have to worry about running out of gas. This property was amazing and we had one of our best vacations ever!!! I would highly recommend this house to anyone. Very spaceuos and great layout. The neighborhood was nice and gated. The neighbors were friendly and welcoming! We did not want to leave but will be back next year for sure!!! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home and property. We went back home so relaxed~"

Karen M. from Woodstock, 07/10/2017

Response from Destin Palms:

"What great feedback. This home is appropriately named and the owner likes to ensure his guests and our guest are properly treated and taken care of. We are glad you stay was better than expected and look forward to your return next year. Destin Palms Management "

"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."

Kelly S. from Chicago, 05/29/2017

Response from Destin Palms:

"Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay in this beautiful home! We are quite proud of this beach house! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay and plan to visit again. See you soon! ~Destin Palms Vacations"

"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!!!!"

Vera B. from Corryton, 05/26/2017

Response from Destin Palms:

"After renting a beach house for your vacation, you may never want to stay in a condo again! We hope you'll come back and stay with us next spring! Be sure to ask about heating the pool - it is an option! ~The Destin Palms Management Team"

"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!"

Renee W. from Frisco , 05/22/2017

Response from Destin Palms:

"Thank you for taking the time to leave a note about your stay. We totally agree - one can never have enough time at the beach! Come back to visit again real soon! Destin Palms Vacations"

"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!"

"We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed the beach house and look forward to staying there again! See you soon! Destin Palms Vacations"

"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. "

"Thank you for notifying us about the beach chairs. We're replacing them. "

"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."

"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!"

Cathy N. from Saint Louis, 08/01/2016

Response from Destin Palms:

"Thank you so much for your feedback! We received your request about the drains and the issue has been addressed. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. This is a great home and one of our favorites :) We hope you will come visit us again in the future! - Destin Palms Management"

"We have rented from Destin Palms before and have been very happy. But this stay was a little different.
1. Had to clean the dryer vent out. Clothes would not dry, almost completely clogged.
2. Golf cart included with house. Broke down Thursday morning. Did not get it back before we left Saturday. Main reason we rented this house was the use of the golf cart. Was told we did nothing to cause the cart to not run.
3. Pool was very warm. A fountain would cool the pool water off to make it refreshing to get in. I have a pool and it works. Simple fix.
4. Air conditioning was sub par. House was 86 degrees most days and never got down below 80 degrees. Very uncomfortable to try and sleep most nights. Maybe a thermostat issue that could be fixed.

The house was very nice and clean and the location was great. Just a few small things that could be improved. Still enjoyed the stay. We love staying in Destiny East.

Response from Destin Palms:

"Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear that you did not have the 5 star experience that we want our guests to have. The only issue during your stay that we were aware of was the golf cart, which has since been fixed. If you had made us aware of the other issues, we would have been happy to send someone over to take care of them for you. Since your departure and review, we have sent the appropriate people to the home to check these issues out and correct any problems. We believe that should you choose to vacation in this home again, you will be pleased :) Please give us a call in the future so that we can make your next stay a 5 star experience. - Destin Palms Management"

"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!!"

"Location Location Location! A quick golf cart ride to the beautiful beaches, fabulous community amenities, private pool and a spacious house. You get all this at Heaven's Gate. Only complaint is that cooking equipment needs to be upgraded and we had to buy a broom for daily sweeping. Definitely will return."

"Looked online and found a rental house within a 5 min walk to the beach.
Loved it. Way to big for me and my rating terrier but we made do. The pool was nice to look at but the snowbird special was the wrong time of the year to go swimming. Anyhow it was great. Golf cart etc etc..... thank you Heather"

"Our family stayed at Heaven's Gate and loved the home and the community! The home is well maintained and very spacious. We also enjoyed using the grill for quick lunches and it is a very nice one! We had 6 adults and 2 was the perfect set up, giving every family their own room and private bath. The living/dining/kitchen area is very spacious too! The pool is clean and well cared for too...we were there in October and opted to have it heated since we had children ages 3 years and 5 months old. We cannot say enough about the managing company, Destiny Palms either....they provide excellent service! The owners have outlined rules for guests to follow, which we were happy to oblige...we feel that the rules keep the home nice! The community pool and play ground are very well maintained also. We have stayed at numerous vacation homes in Destin over the years and this is the best one yet! We are planning on booking this house for our next trip."

"Our family was amazed at how nice this how was, the golf cart was a wonderful bonus!!! made going to the beach much easier the neighborhood was very quiet it truly was a nice quick relaxful vacation. the only real problem we had was the secuirty guard he was really rude and it seemed like he let the residents do unlawful things and wanted to be extra strict with us"

ERIKA A. from HOUSTON, 09/25/2015

"The house was nice and clean. Easily accommodated six adults and 4 children. Located in a nice, gated, community and a very short walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again."

Response from Destin Palms:

"Thank you! We are so glad that you chose to spend your first Destin vacation with us! We look forward to having you back for many more Destin vacations!!"

"We had a great stay at Heaven's Gate. Great location, the house was a nice size and clean, and the golf cart is a huge plus! Could use a new dryer as it takes multiple times to dry a load. Also, we would suggest counting the bracelets as soon as you get there - we had to pay for 2 when we never used the bracelets! It's in the contract and we couldn't prove that there were already two missing since we didn't count them when we arrived. We would still recommend the house and the company as we had a great vacation!"

"Excellent location! Beautiful home."

"We have visited Destin for several years. This year our usual home was not available. We contacted Destin Palms and they rented the Heavens Gate property to us. It was exceptionally clean and well appointed. I highly recommend Destin Palms as a rental agency and the Heavens Gate property as well."

Joesph V. from Kingsville, 03/04/2015

"My family truly enjoyed our stay at with this company. There were a few kinks when we first got there, but the staff was friendly and courteous in working out our issues, and resolving them expediciously.
We would definitely use this company each time, when we are looking for a place to rent for vacation! They have several properties to meet every families needs!

Thank you"
