The room was great...a little outdated and the dishwasher smelled up the entire room but it wasn’t that big of a deal. The only real issue was that the property decided they wanted to do a lot of renovations around the property during the week we were there so it was very loud. We give it a 4/5 because it really was a nice place for the money and a great spot right on the beach.

Unit in bad need of updating and cleanup. Couch and chair old smells and stained. Picky about hanging beach towels to dry on balcony. Same with sliding door being left open. Ridiculous. Who is watching close enough to see that?

Owner's Response: Hi David, we are glad you had an enjoyable stay at this condo. Your issues regarding updates and cleanup were reviewed by our Property Management Team and numerous updates have been completed. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the towel and sliding glass door policies were put in place by the on-site Property Management Team and the owners and are beyond our control. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.

409 could use a lot of TCL

  • 4 of 5

We picked HSRC 409 on short notice, and in a hurry. Teach me a lesson. It has a view of the ocean. I knew it was beyond the pool and tennis courts. That was fine. The unit has a cute lighthouse decor going around. However, the place is really tired. I'm sorry, but it was difficult to even plug in my cell phone charger cuz the plugs are all loose! I could go on - but what is the point? We did hit some wonderful warm weather. The pool was heavenly. The Destin beaches are always beyond comprehension for beauty. No crowds, good time to visit.
