Located in charming Crystal Beach, which is a Seaside-like development on the east side of Destin, this highly desirable gated neighborhood has attractive, lush landscaping and is maintained in pristine condition.
It's a terrific residential area, yet close to restaurants and activities in Destin. Walk 0.5 mile the beach, or hop on the free, seasonal trolley, running from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
The pool and spa area is unbelievable, something you'd find in a world class resort. The lagoon style pool is 30,000 square feet of gorgeous, sparkling clean water, with a walk-in area, three waterfalls, a spa, lavish landscaping, and plenty of sitting areas for your group to enjoy. It also has surround sound, a flat screen TV, and a grilling area to help you relax and get in the beach groove.
Please note that there are parking restrictions within the Villages of Crystal Beach. There are two parking spaces available in the driveway of the home with an overflow lot for one additional vehicle. Trailers, boats, and motorcycles are not allowed within the community gates; alternate parking arrangements will need to be made for these items.
Close by is Destin Commons, a beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly area and a great family venue where children will love to play in the interactive water fountains. Also for the younger guests, a nautically/pirate themed outdoor playground features a 1,750 square foot soft play area with various creatures from the sea, slides, and a treasure chest!

Summer vacation with the grandkids!
We really enjoyed the house, community, pool and beach.
The grandkids really enjoyed the pool and the older one enjoyed the volleyball area too. We had never stayed off the beach before, but the trolley made it really easy to get there. We did walk it a few times too. The house was very nice. The only thing I did not like, were the mattresses, they made a squeaking noise every time I moved, so I wasn't able to sleep well. I would highly recommend this community.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our lovely home. We are so glad you enjoyed the community amenities and our home was spacious enough for your family. We look forward to your return! Thank you for your feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy.
Nice little home...just perfect for a family of 8. Will defiantly come back again.
Thank you for your feedback on this lovely home. We are so glad our home provided you with everything you needed for a great family vacation. We would love to have you stay with us again at Real Joy.
We really enjoyed every inch of this house! Luxury at its finest. The neighborhood/ pool area is nice and quiet. The location is perfect blocks away from the the shopping quarters and the beach. Would definitely recommend for any family vacation!
We're so pleased our beautiful home was the perfect vacation spot for your family. The convenient beach and great accommodations just can't be beat. We would love to have you stay with us again at Real Joy.
We had a wonderful stay and will certainly look to book this location again when we are in Destin. It is directly across from the Destin Commons area and approximately 4 blocks from the Crystal Sands beach. The unit is clean, well furnished, and has all you need for great stay. Do not let the map fool you. You can walk to the beach in 6-8 mins using the back entrance to the complex. The pool/hot tub is very nice.
You simply can't beat the location!
Thank you for letting us know about your stay in our lovely home. We're so glad its convenient location allowed you to enjoy many of the area attractions, and our great beach! Thank you for your feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy.
