Dawn was wonderful to work with, she assisted with questions before our trip and kept us up to date on info before arrival. We loved having the equipment credit. Also, love that they come and set out garbage cans!

Everyone is quick to respond to any news you have. They brought a new grill when the old one did not work. They brought a pack and play for the baby. Very good service. Easy to work with. Thank you for a great stay.

The house we stayed in was awesome - beautiful, great location, clean, well maintained, and just a great house overall. The Natural Retreats team was very responsive and accomodating to make this an awesome vacation. My brother has already booked a fall vacation with you guys following this awesome trip!

Would have given 10 but told locally elevator did not work, on last day of our stay we tried it and worked fine. Could have used the elevator one of reasons we rented heavenly palms as had older adults with us. Also not enough hand towels were available. Cathy Ogilvie

Had a great time and appreciated the details you provided to make it a positive experience. The mobile app instructions for the tv's was not accurate - particularly for the master bedroom. In fact, the Magnavox remote didn't even have batteries in it. My only suggestion is that you update the app for tv instructions.

We had problems with the air conditioning and it was in the evening but NR was very responsive and fixed the problem that night.

We were all impressed by the house itself! It was clean and ready for us. When we needed to get in contact with the owner/staff, they were quick and responsive. The furniture made sense for a beach house - the beds were comfortable, and decor made it inviting. While we didn't want to swim with tadpoles, once removed, the pool itself was nice and there was space for outdoor cooking & eating. The outdoor refrigerator was also an added plus. We loved being so close to the beach and would definitely come back again. Our young married children have all raved on social media what a wonderful experience it was so thank you for a great experience!

We had a wonderful vacation. Covid19 concerns prevented us from enjoying area restaurants and other businesses. We wish the weather had been better but loved the house. We had some minor issues with TVs not working, natural retreats was quickly responded and replaced the non-working tv. Had been a little concerned after reading the review mentioning older appliances. The coffee pot had a spring that stuck, but once it was popped back into place it worked fine. We have rented beach homes at least annually for over 40 years and found heavenly palms kitchen well stocked with plenty of dishes glasses flatware etc. we normally rent ocean front and were a little apprehensive of the walk to water and concerned that we wouldn’t see/hear the ocean from the house, but we pleasantly surprised by great views and short walk.

The house had really old appliances, coffee maker, toaster oven. The ice maker on the fridge didn’t work. The downstairs fridge was missing shelves.

We feel like the stay was great! On the second day of our arrival, our toilet had a leak. By the time we got back from the beach, it was fixed and working perfectly! So thankful for that. The only issue we had was there were definitely not enough towels and washrags for our family, we had to go buy some. Also, there were many bugs, I would recommend pest control inside the home.

We visited this home in November 2019 and had a great time! The house is beautiful with good views and love the screened in porch on the 2nd floor! The bedrooms all have either queen or king beds and the rooms are bigger in person than the pictures that are posted, so we were pleasantly surprised. The staff with natural retreats are amazing! We had an issue with the heated pool not working when we first arrived, but the general manager was so nice. He was very honest, apologetic and they worked as quickly as they could to get it fixed. Unfortunately it did not work for over half the time we were there but again the general manager was great and gave us a full refund. The only other thing I would criticize would be the heating/cooling ability of the house, but again it was not a deal breaker as this is a HUGE house. The elevator was super convenient most importantly because of my 83 year old grandfather who has a very difficult time getting around. You can use it basically as a dumweighter as well so you dont have to carry things up and down stairs. Overall we enjoyed this place and we will definitely use Natural Retreats again to book a place to stay because they were so helpful!

Wonderful beach house!

We stayed at Heavenly Palms last week and had the most relaxing vacation! It’s everything my family wanted! Will definitely be visiting again!

Great place

We visited the home in sept 2019. The house/pool/view were all beautiful. The area was quiet and peaceful. Short drive to town for anything you should need. Check in/out was very easy and any communication with the owners was easy as well. I would highly recommend this house and would definitely return.

Large Home

The home was nice and spacious. The pool was great and access to the beach was just a short walk. The side yard was nice for the dog. The view from the screened in porch was wonderful! A few things to mention would be that the beds were not very comfortable and both refrigerators need an upgrade. There were shelves and drawers broken in both of the refrigerators which made it hard to put many groceries in without smashing things. Another note is that apparently October is prime bear season around the area and our trash cans were knocked over every night and we had to continue to clean them up. There needs to be some sort of cage to put the trash cans in to keep this from happening. We did have to call for service on one of the toilets and they responded very quickly and fixed the issue. Overall we had a nice visit and enjoyed the area!

Great house with nice view.

My kids and I stayed in this home over fall break and had a great time. The walk to the beach was very short and the view from the porch and the windows was great. The kitchen was well stocked, and the beds were comfortable. The kids really enjoyed having their own pool to swim in.

Great Location, great vacation!

I visited the first week in September. It was a good house, great pool and great location. It was very convenient to the beach.

Heavenly Palms Stay

Our family (sixteen of us) made up of grandparents, three married couples with their children) couldn't have found a better place to take a summer vacation on the Gulf.

Great house for multiple families

With three families, we maxed out the occupancy of this house and were still comfortable. There were six adults with nine kids between the ages of 12 and 18. The boardwalk to the beach was only a few houses down. It was nice to have the pool for a break from the beach - the kids were in it every night except for one evening when we had a campfire on the beach (it's permitted!). The kitchen was well stocked (although, for those of you with younger children, there are no plastic dishes), there was ample seating inside and out, the water pressure was good and the beds were comfortable (barring the pull out sofa - but I have yet to find one that is!). The only reason for not giving this house a five star rating was for minor inconveniences that some TLC will fix: dryer is not efficient (takes at least two cycles to dry a load of towels); one living room lamp by the couch didn't work; there was no broom, so we had to get the vacuum out when the floors got sandy; the downstairs refrigerator door was a little off kilter, so you had to make sure it was sealed to keep things cold. Again, this is a great vacation home - I would absolutely stay here again and I highly recommend it, especially for large or multiple families.

Heavenly Palms was truly Heavenly!

Our first time to the very pet friendly beaches of Port St. Joe and the Cape. The home was amazing! Great communication before arrival, which made our first visit to a new place less stressful. The home was spotless and odor free. We felt completely relaxed almost immediately! The ocean lulled us to sleep each evening and was the first sound we woke up to every morning. I really loved the location of this home as well. just a couple turns to the Indian Pass Raw Bar and the same going the other direction to the Cape. The water pressure was great, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, the elevator made it so convenient moving luggage to specific floors...although we didn't like loading it on our last day there. The week was just way way to short. We called the Customer Service line once - on our first day of arrival and it was promptly, friendly answered and they walked us through how to adjust the digital thermostat over the phone. We will be back and we will rent this property again! Many Many Thanks!

October Visit

This is our 5th time visiting Cape San Blas , we had never been in October! The weather was great, however the stabile/dog flies are awful this time of the year - This house was well laid out and very accommodating to everyone needs- we had a house full of 11 and we seemed to have everything we needed here. The pool was a great addition to the property and the walk to the beach was very short! This side of the cape didn't have very clear blue water like we are use to on the other end near the state park-the closeness to the beach was great for trucking things back and forth!

Great beach home

We had a great week at the beach. The house was perfect. The elevator made it easy to get our luggage and older dog to the upper floors. The pool was a nice bonus to relax and cool off. Enjoyed our stay and appreciate the owners allowing our furry kids to accompany us on vacation.
