~One of the many vacation rentals managed by RealJoy Vacations in Destin, Florida.~
I hardly ever write reviews, but I just feel like I need to for our recent experience because it was so incredible. The booking process was smooth and fast, I sent a request to the owner and the response time was quick I believe they responded a few hours later. The house is very spacious and very clean, I can honestly say I felt like home during our 4 day trip. In my opinion the price was very reasonable to say it was Spring Break time. When we got there we had a issue where the kitchen lights went out because of a minor issue with the breaker box but what I absolutely loved was I called maintenance and they came in less than 10 minutes to flip the switch back on. The beach is literally walking distance and your close to everything from department stores to restaurants. During our trip we did the dolphin/snorkeling boat tour which the kids and adults absolutely loved, we also ate at Bubba Gump both was located no more than 15 minutes from the house. This was our first trip to Destin Florida and the experience was amazing for my family and I, I would highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back.
This is a GREAT rental. Our family has 1 senior, 6 adults, 1 teenager, 2 children, and 1 infant. Relatively clean and new house. The sheets had strands of hair on it, but we brought our own sheets to use. The community pool is wonderful to use. The beach is 0.5 miles away (walking distance). The trolley stops running at 4:30pm (not the advertised 6pm), so don't rely on it. An ice cream truck comes through the community 2x a day. The house is convenient to shopping and dining. Real Joy will provide you with an app to use for the house, and the app has directions, gate codes, door codes, nearby dining, etc. I really liked the fact that we didn't have to use a key... instead there was a door code. The community is comprised of all vacation rentals - so you are not invading the space of local residents. Trash is collected everyday. I will DEFINITELY come back and rent this house or another property of Real Joy.
I highly recommend this home. The home was very clean and in a great neighborhood. Great spaces for everyone to spread out. So many tvs. The pool in the neighborhood is terrific, very resort like. The neighborhood is great for kids to ride their bikes. Will definitely be back.
We were very pleased with this vacation home. Real Joy sent everything we needed to access the gate and the house. When we arrived at the home all codes worked and the home was very clean. We were a family of eight with adults and small children. The home has everything you would need to enjoy your vacation. We would recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet community and family fun. We are planning our return for next year.
