Owner Testimonials

After successfully managing our vacation property for more three years, we decided it was time to find someone local who could relieve us of that burden and add value for our guests. Jilenna and Shannon came highly recommended, so we turned the responsibility over to them. We have been delighted with their service, responsiveness and ability to book guests consistently. We wanted someone who would look after our home as if it were their own, not like a hotel with a revolving door. Forever Vacation Rentals has been an answered prayer to allow us to enjoy our property not only when we are there, but especially when we aren’t. -Patrick (Home Owner in Destiny by the Sea)

Forever Vacation Rentals is exactly what I was looking for in a management company. Being that I live so far away I don’t have the time or energy to manage my properties. Jilenna and Shannon were extremely proactive and addressed any and all issues. The families that  have rented my houses have expressed positive feedback about their stay.  I couldn’t be happier—more income and less stress! If you are looking for a knowledgeable and professional management company—Forever Vacation Rentals is the way to go. – Steve (Home Owner in Destiny by the Sea)

Forever Vacation Rentals has managed our property for the last year. Shannon Parmeley and Jilenna Parmeley are professional and courteous, but most importantly, because we do not live in the area they have been able to provide the personal touch we desired. We wanted to update some of the interior furnishings and they quickly provided us with options and then made sure they were installed correctly. In the first year we had more reservations then with our past management company and we are looking forward to an even better 2016! – Troy (Home Owner in Silver Beach Towers)

My husband and I live in Dallas Texas and own a vacation home in Destin, Fla. When I first spoke with Jilenna 4 1/2 years ago about managing our home, I had an instant good feeling about her character.  4 1/2 years later, I would trust Jilenna and her husband, Shannon, with my most cherished possessions.  I am a very detailed and picky person about my home but Jilenna takes care of it like I would if I were there. Shannon is very helpful and has the same attention to detail. They are always there for us and take the initiative to do whatever needs to be handled many times without us asking first.  One other important factor is how great Jilenna communicates with me. Jilenna, Shannon, and their precious daughter and son are a wonderful family and I highly recommend Jilenna and Shannon Parmeley.  – Vicki (Private Home on Holiday Isle)

Jilenna manages my 2nd home in Destin. She is one of the best house managers I’ve ever had. She is very business savvy, prompt and honest. When there is a task at hand she gets it done immediately. You never have to tell her twice. I love what she has done for us so far and would recommend her for any job. – Debi (Home Owner in Destiny by the Sea)

We are currently working with Jilenna as our agent. She’s done an amazing job working with us in finding an investment condo in Destin, FL. She respected our requests and worked within our parameters but also offered listings outside the box. We landed outside the box and are thrilled. She is highly knowledgeable of the Destin Area, the real-estate market, whether for ownership or rental, and even offers property management services for those with investment properties (Owner Forever Vacation Rentals).Quick to respond to questions, helpful in negotiations, and tackles any issues that arise in dealing with all the other parties involved (real-estate agents, sellers, mortgage companies, appraisers, inspectors, etc.).In closing Jilenna is more than a Real Estate Professional, she is kind, considerate, patient, funny, thoughtful, thought provoking, energetic, thorough, responsive, and ultimately professional. Can’t recommend her enough! – Mark and Dianne (Home Owner Destin Towers)

GUEST TESTIMONIAL AFTER SUCCESSFULLY TAKING OVER A PROPERTY TO MANAGE:

My family rented a vacation home in Destin, Florida through Jilenna. We had made the original reservation through another real estate company, but the house was sold before our rental dates, with Jilenna taking over the property. I was very apprehensive about how this might work, but Jilenna assured me that she would honor all of the terms of the original agreement and was very responsive to all of my requests for contract and payment verifications. We were very pleased with the professional service, the incredible house in Destin, and the Christmas tree that she provided for our family in the rental house. – Doug W.
