It wasn’t the cleanest place and beds are uncomfortable.

  • 2 of 5

I promise I’m no the pickiest person and I hardly ever write reviews but I feel like We over paid for this rental, 3 of the beds were extremely uncomfortable, it seemed like they were 100 years old, we had to go to Walmart to buy inflatable mattresses, the bed skirt on the master bedroom was ripped, the toaster didn’t work, there was a cockroach on the guest bathroom, it wasn’t very clean, the water didn’t work on one of the bathrooms the day we got there, although I have to say they fixed it right away, the WiFi did not work at all, the only thing I liked was that it looked like a safe and family friendly community and the pool was nice and clean, but I wouldn’t stay at property again.

Owner's Response: Hi Maria, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay. We’re pleased to hear you found the pool nice and clean and found it to be a family friendly community. We hope you enjoyed the easy beach access as well. We did some checking and found where a technician responded to the water with the shower the same day you called and tightened handles. We couldn’t find where you contacted us regarding the other issues giving us an opportunity to correct them during your stay. Again, thank you for your feedback.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 13 just went to Destin for our family reunion and we had the pleasure of staying at an amazing house-Calypso in the Villages of Crystal Beach. From the moment we walked in, we felt right at home and were immediately put into the mindset for a great vacation! The house was spacious and very clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook- something that is very special to our family. We cooked a couple of big family dinners (spaghetti night is a staple in our house) and had everything we needed. Another huge plus was that the pool in the neighborhood was right across from us! The pool was very clean and wasn't too crowded during our visit, either. My kids liked the pool so much, it was tough to get them out long enough to hit the beach! The best part about this house was definitely it's prime location: we were only about a ten minute walk from the beach! It's such a huge relief to not have to load the kids and coolers into the car every morning and then search for a parking space in the summer time rush. Destin can get very busy, so I definitely recommend staying at this house to avoid the stress of parking at the beach. Also, we were only a short drive from a TON of restaurants and shops. You really cannot ask for a better neighborhood to stay in. We were jealous of the people who lived there! We enjoyed it so much that we started planning next year's reunion before we even left our vacation. Thank you RealJoy for a wonderful trip!!! We will see you next summer!
