About Joe Godar "Tobagosun"

I love vacation rentals! After owning a few businesses and selling real estate, I decided to start a vacation rental business. Have rentals in Destin Florida started me down this path. I would love to have you stay with us. I hope to share our homes in Destin with you soon!

Joe Godar "Tobagosun" purchased this house in 2000

Why Joe Godar "Tobagosun" chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We visited Destin in the late 90's and we loved it. We started buying real estate there and visit as often as possible. It has so much to offer and is the most beautiful place we have been to in Florida. It is truely a perfect place for a family vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr. Godar:

We just returned from a wonderful week in Destin. We truly

enjoyed staying in your lovely home. Emerald Shores was friendly and convenient

to the beach and restaurants.

We loved everything about your home. The

kitchen was well stocked with a variety of glasses, plates, tools, pots, pans, &

even a crock-pot. As a group, we loved your grill and patio area!

We just returned home from a wonderful week spent at your home. Your home is beautiful and very comfortable. We have rented in Destin in the past and this was by far the nicesest place we stayed. The pool was great and the short walk to the beach was nice with the kids.

Thank you for allowing us into your home.

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a short, convenient walk to the beach and to two pools. This gated community has its own private-access beach pavilion with restrooms and outdoor showers which we really found extremely convenient. Everything you could ask for is available in the well equipped kitchen and the owner is very accommodating. He is easy to contact and very responsive. We especially enjoyed the private, side-patio area downstairs with grill and great seating to just sit, chat and relax. The "children" (grown) thoroughly enjoyed the upstairs outside deck connecting the two bedrooms on the second floor. The home was perfect for a family reunion for the 5 of us! Emerald Shores is also very convenient to everything with two gated exits which allow for quick access to the main road, Highway 98 and the beach highway, Old Highway 98. Also within walking distance to several of our favorite restaurants - Pompano Joe's, Kenny D's and Captain Dave's and not far from the Crab Shack and Whale's Tail. Several items the kids or grandkids would want to use at the beach such as boogie board, beach chairs, etc. are available as well. Our family reunions are usually larger, but for the size of our group this year, it was perfect! For these reasons we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it as a great 3 bedroom / 2&1/2 bath house to consider in Destin. Thanks to Joe for the great time we had last week in Tobago Sun!

Fine until the ceiling leaked all over my stuff

  • 3 of 5

This rental started out great, as the house is large and came with all the amenities you would expect from a condo. It is close to the beach and comes with a wagon and chairs to take with you to the beach. The chairs are all falling apart and rusty, but they get the job done.

I would have given this 4 to 4 1/2 stars, but the ceiling leaked in the master bedroom all over my textbook and other books I had on the night stand. This by itself is just an accident and would not have necessitated the lower rating, but we called the very next morning (leak was found about 10pm) and was told someone would come fix it. No one came, so we called back in the afternoon. Was told that someone would get to it when they could. On the 3rd day, the rental company called and said they were sorry no one had come to fix it and hopefully they would be there that day. And they also said that this leak had already been fixed this year. Well apparently it hadn't been fixed or it wouldn't have leaked again.

I also want to point out out that this made the upstairs bathroom unavailable as it appeared that is where the leak was coming from, so for 3 days we had 8 adults and one baby sharing one shower.

A small complaint from one of the other people staying in the house that should not keep anyone away, but was more of a man that is weird kind of thing. The decor did not match. It appeared as though they were going for a Parisian/wine motif throughout the entire home, but then there were paintings of Venice and the Brooklyn Bridge....just weird. One of these things is not like the other

Owner's Response: We are very sorry for the leak that you experienced. It was totally our fault that our plumber did not show up on time. When we called him, he said he would be there and then got stuck on another job. That was our fault and we do apologize he did not get there in a timely manner. I am sorry that the decor was not to your standards. It is what my wife likes and I have learned to not question it. I hope that would not make for a bad vacation. Again, we are sorry for the mix up on the service call for the leak. Thanks for staying with us.

What a great vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation home! About a 5 minute walk from the beach, comes with everything you need to have a great time at the beach (chairs, umbrella, beach toys for the kids, and a wagon to take it all in). The house was absolutely fantastic for the 12 of us, the house comes with all that you need to cook/grill, the laundry room was a major plus (we did 2 to 3 loads a day), the beds were comfortable and overall the house had a comfortable feel to it. There is so much to do in Destin, great restaurants everywhere, outlet mall down the road, you get private beach access w/bar, you can rent a kayak/paddle board there on the beach, we rented a scooter car for a week from Fantasea Scooters down the road (a great way to get around & a lot of fun!), and there is a lot to do at Harborwalk Village. We had a great family vacation and hope to return again soon! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Best Vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish Joe helped made out first time to Destin a memorable one.

From the ease of making our reservation to the beauty of his house, we didn't want to leave!

The house was clean, spacious, and beautiful. Short walk to the beautiful beach and pool. Close to many stores and restaurants.

Joe was more than helpful when it came to questions I had for our beach wedding!

The was our first time to the area and we can't wait to go back!!

Thanks again Joe for a beautiful place to stay!
