Joe Godar - Owner/Manager
Joe Godar

After countless vacations to Destin, Florida, Shannon and I purchased our first family vacation property in 1999. With our two little girls in tow, we were always so excited to arrive in Destin to soak up the sun, visit the water park, and play in the pool or just to relax on the white sand beaches. We were in “paradise”! Then came the harsh disappointing reality of finding a quality rental management company that not only cared for our home like we did but could also provide a profitable return on our investment. It became such a problem that I started thinking, "I can do this better myself." Having owned an online nutritional supplements company, a gym, and having a real estate license, I knew a good bit about internet marketing and took on this new challenge. We were so successful at renting our vacation home that I continued purchasing more vacation property in Destin and started assisting friends, family and associates in renting out their vacation property. It rapidly became apparent that we needed to automate this manually intensive process. So in 2005, I founded ivacationonline.com which allowed owners and rental managers to completely automate their online booking and property management processes. Since then, I founded DestinToGo.com to help owners market and manage their vacation rental properties using our proprietary software and proven marketing techniques with a hands-on approach.

Being Joe's daughter, I have been visiting the Destin area for the past 25 years. So when I started a family of my own, we all decided it was time to grow our business and make the move down to Destin. Now living on the beautiful Gulf Coast, it has helped us grow our business tremendously. I am here to help our potential & returning guests make sure their stay in one of our homes is the best experience. If there are any questions or concerns about the booking process, your stay or the property I am right here to help you! (513) 582-8017 taylergodar@gmail.com

My wife Tayler & I decided it was time to make the move to Destin in order to provide a better future for daughter & growing family. Being in the Army National Guard for 6 years & then moving to the construction world afterwards, I knew I was ready to start my own "handy man" business. I am here if you find that there are any issues, big or small, within the property. You give me a call, or a text and I then make your inconvenience my priority. You will find my contact information inside of the home for whenever you need me! (850) 687- 1815 tjaeger601@gmail.com
