About Joni Devitt Maloy (Johnny)

I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my Happy House with people from around the world. Wonderful memories are being made there!

Joni Devitt Maloy (Johnny) purchased this house in 1993

Why Joni Devitt Maloy (Johnny) chose Long Beach

We moved down the road into a sprawling ranch house, and decided our old home would make a perfect vacation house!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can not thank you enough for letting my family use your home for our first vacation. We enjoyed every day. My 5 kids (13, 11, 10, 5, 2) loved the playroom and pool. We came with my sister-in-law, so in total we had 11 people and room was not an issue. Your home is happy just like it is called. Thank you so much. I hope to see you again. You have made our first vacation something we will never forget. P.S. Blueberries won over the pool!

Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Joni is the best hostess I have ever come across on HomeAway, AirBnb and VRBO. We evacuated from Florida ahead of Irma's landfall and she was extremely kind to let us check in early and even offered to let us stay as long as we wanted at no extra charge. We were so blessed to rent a cozy home with every amenity possible. Our kids loved the game room. The pool table was a hit with the kids. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality. We will be sure to rent from you again should we ever end up in Mississippi once more.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a couple families staying together, there was plenty of room for the kids and adults to have their space. Our kids enjoyed the pool, game room, and the huge backyard! The adults enjoyed the outdoor sitting area, the large family room and plenty of space to cook and grill. We ran out of propane and I sent an email at 830am, and the tanks were refilled and hooked up at the grill by 9:00am. We truly were impressed working with Joni and her ambition to make sure we were happy campers at the happy house!

This was the second time we stayed here. We loved it as much as the first. There were twelve of us and everything was very accommodating. We hope to see you July 2016. Thank you.

In the details...

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Large back yard, nice neighborhood, great location, dog friendly house. Washer & dryer work. Comfortable bed. Good ac. Nice breakfast bar and dinning table.

Cons: Pool and pool area were dirty upon arrival. Lights in carport were burnt out as were some in house fixtures, could not find replacement bulbs for them. Game room was dirty, cluttered and unorganized, pieces and parts to things were all over. Hot tub is inside game room, there was blackish slimy stuff in bottom. All cabinets and pantry full of stuff, no where for our food. Leftover food from previous guest in refrigerator. All drawers in kitchen are broken and full which is dangerous. Remotes missing batteries, remote for dvd player could not be found. Almost all channels on box in living room are locked, not just movie channels. Hot water was questionable for showers and there were only two of us! Rack in master bath shower covered with rust. Fire ants are all over back yard, not just in a couple places.

This was our first time using VRBO and was supposed to be a relaxing vacation for a family wedding. There were so many details that needed to be addressed before we got there, things that you would just expect to be done. Maybe it was end of season, maybe it was timing as the owner was out of town. We don't really know, it left us feeling very disappointed and a little less enthusiastic about renting again.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that your stay didn’t meet your expectations. We pride ourselves on addressing any issues with the property immediately, so thank you for notifying me! Even though we make a point to clean and check everything on our property between renters, things like light bulbs, batteries, stray leaves during the fall (and even pesky fire ant hills after Mississippi rains!) pop up at a moments notice, but rest assured they have all been taken care of. We've also added a note: "how to use the living room remote and a guide to the 60+ channels we get." On another point: This is our first time hearing of a hot water issue, even after hosting big family reunions. We will make sure to check up on the issue ASAP and apologize for the inconvenience. While we are very sorry you ran into some issues, the one thing we simply can’t apologize for is the “clutter” in the game room: we are used to hosting large extended families and want as many toys, yard games, board games and fun things for them to play with as possible! You’ll see from all of our positive reviews, we truly pride ourselves on making this property like a home away from home for our guests. We are sincerely sorry that the rental was not what you had hoped for, but thank you for your feedback, as it will only improve the stay for future guests.

This was our second stay at Happy House and enjoyed it as much as we did the first time. We all enjoyed the pool and all the ammenties it had to offer. My grandaughter referred to it as "home" lol. I highly recommend Happy House. We look forward to our stay in 2016.
