Had a great trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family came down for a quick get together and had a really great time! We loved that the home is right in front of the lagoon pool, the sound of the waterfalls outside was really neat. This is close to the beach and great shopping at Destin Commons. Wish we'd had time to stay longer!

Really gets no stars

  • 1 of 5

BUGS!!! ..We arrived late during the night and upon unloading we say ROACHES all in the kitchen! On the counters, walls, floors, even in the dishwasher! We immediately call Real Joy, they sent a lady with a spray can (not acceptable) but all we wanted to do was simply change locations and REAL JOY seem to not be able to do anything of course till the next morning since was so late...but the next day we moved into another location..They supposely had an someone come out and spray...but MY BOY BLUE was horrible. They should have had someone check to make sure the property was ready and up to par before any one was to entered thru the front door and it wasnt ready for anyone to vacation in.

Owner's Response: Hi Kristi, we apologize for the issue in this gorgeous 3-story home, but glad we could move you to a beautiful 4-bedroom home in Crystal Beach. Our homes are inspected prior to guest arrival and are normally done during the day however, insects are more likely to make their presence known during the nighttime hours. We are sorry we missed this problem. The home has been thoroughly sprayed by a professional pest control service and the issue has been resolved. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.

Good property, need upgrade

  • 3 of 5

My family stayed at this property for Thanksgiving.This is our third Thanksgiving vacation in Destin, first with Realjoy property. This property is located a short walk from the beach approximately 4 blocks. We enjoyed community pool which is directly across from this home.

Property is in need of upgrades. Bathroom shower curtain need replacing was torn upon arrival in two bathrooms (due to quality could be torn easily). Very limited cooking utensils, no small eating spoons, few large cooking spoons, forks, etc.. Roaches observed in the kitchen. (specifically dishwasher area). Limited furniture in bedrooms. Second floor King bedroom, no mirror dresser. One trash located in bathroom on each level with exception of kitchen. Overall the property would be very good after upgrades and quality improvement of furniture, equipment, & supplies. Thankfully we brought everything we needed with us.

Owner's Response: Hi Deborah, we are glad you enjoyed staying at this beautiful 3-story home located in a gated community with a huge lagoon pool and close access to Crystal Beach. We wish you would have contacted us during your stay and we would have delivered additional cooking utensils. The home has been thoroughly sprayed by a professional pest control service and the issue has been resolved. All other issues have been referred to our Property Management Team for their assessment and resolution. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
