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 Mississippi

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.

We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I rented this house in December 2014 and again June 2015. It was my dad's 60th b-day celebration and we had family come to the house from several different states! We loved utilizing the pool, the games outdoors, and the game room. We had enough room to hang out, play games, and cook. The owner is fantastic, has great communication, and let us to take home some blueberries from the blueberry bush outside! I know this house is perfect and I am sure we will be coming back! Thanks again!
