Your questions and concerns are handled by people living and working in the area, not forwarded to a call center in another state or country where the person on the other end of the line who has never been here. You won’t need to chase down answers to questions on the internet, or through multiple phone calls, only to run into outdated information.

Customer Service

When bringing your family or friends together for a getaway, no matter how close or how far from the place you call home, you’ll encounter plenty of sources of stress. The quality of customer service from events, attractions, and accommodations shouldn’t be one of them. Booking with a large hotel chain or online booking website, while convenient in the moment, may not benefit you in the long run. Customer service at such places can suffer. Should you need help, you’ll have to call an 800-number help line and sit on hold for an undetermined amount of time – time which you could have spent planning other aspects of your trip to Destin and the towns along 30A and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico! You may not even get a satisfactory outcome for your problem or concern. Booking direct with Five Star Gulf Rentals means you’ll have quick and easy access to the people handling your dream vacation. Our experienced customer service agents have the know-how to handle your every need and are there when you need it most.
