As the owner of vacation homes in Destin, I could not be more pleased with Diamond Gulf Rentals as my property managers. I've had other management companies and Diamond Gulf is way above the rest. Our guest have always spoken highly of Diamond Gulf's responsiveness and customer service. We are in constant contact and I get continuous feedback on what the guest are saying and the maintenance on our property. The maintenance crew is top notch and are very attentive to detail. they keep our property maintained as I would myself. The team at Diamond Gulf are ALL STARS and I consider them partners.
When we began our relationship with Diamond we had two primary goals - minimizing the wear and tear on our house by always keeping it clean and properly serviced and maximizing our rental income while allowing for adequate personal use of the house. Diamond has excelled on both fronts. When we use our house, we always get what the renters get - a clean, comfortable house in great working order and our income expectations have always been met. Diamond is an A+ company.
Almost weekly we get flyers, advertisements or inquiries from other rental management companies and they all go directly into the trash. None of them are going to be able to match what Diamond Gulf has done for us in terms of service and delivering on rental value. Diamond has been ahead of the curve as far as innovative approaches to rental income and alternative weeks that has paid big dividends. (Owners with Diamond since Day ONE)

Active rate management (also known as yield management) is the strategy of adjusting the prices of rental properties to maximize revenue. Active rate management for vacation rentals, much like the hotel and airline industries, is about adjusting rates strategically up or down, to make the most money from your property based on the ever-changing demand and market conditions. While Diamond Gulf Rentals uses advanced, dynamic AI software, it does not replace the human element – we use it as a guide along with our decades of experience to observe trends and make adjustments which yield the maximum revenue for our homeowners.
