                                                              James S.Newburgh, IN

                                                              The home was OK. This is a small 3 bedroom home that is advertised to sleep 10 people. Two of the bedrooms are small with the down stairs bedroom, which is small sleeps 4 people. The second upstairs bedroom has a Queen bed so if you have two adults sleeping in this bed is somewhat uncomfortable. If you have more that 6 people this home is comfortable but any more that 6 things become very tight. The master Bedroom was great.

                                                              The roof top gets above average marks for sun bathing but the grill needs to be improved. We did grill one night and the gas pressure was very low to the point it took some time to even get the grill lite. Grilling took some time to complete but did get done.

                                                              We did have a few repairs that were needed when we arrived and the property manager had someone come out and fixed these problems right away. So that was good.

                                                              Over all our stay was good, the home was OK and of course "Destiny by the Sea" was great as usual. Spring Break is not something that we will be doing again. We have been going to Destiny by the Sea for over 10 years and this will be our last visit over spring break.

                                                              LOVED the Rooftop Deck!

                                                              Donna B.

                                                              Lots of great things about this property, but the deck was awesome! The house is a super quick walk to the beach & the neighborhood is gated with little cobblestone type streets, so is adorable! The neighborhood pool is super close as well, everything was very convenient. Loved it-

                                                              Wonderful Rooftop!

                                                              Chris L.

                                                              My family and I stayed at Rooftop Retreat for our early Spring Break and we absolutely loved it! The house had plenty of room, we loved the roof views and the kitchen had everything we needed. We have never been to Destin before (we usually stick to Myrtle Beach), but we will definitely be back! There is so much to do and the house was so clean and comfortable. Check in was easy- we didn't even have to pick up keys! We would definitely stay here again.

                                                              Great Neighborhood, Cool House

                                                              Simon E.

                                                              We were at the beach and out with friends most of the time. We did enjoy the rooftop at night under the stars. And it had a large kitchen and table that we ate breakfast at every morning. My favorite part was walking down the beach and back to Captain Daves. We had a blast and can't wait to come back!

                                                              The wedding was perfect! The rooftop view was the perfect backdrop! The home was beautiful!

                                                              Veronica K.

                                                              The community was great! This entire experience was absolutely one of the best of my life. Thanks RealJoy vacations for making my dream wedding a reality❤️
