Luxury meets Quaint

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two families loved our visit here. The house itself exceeds any we've stayed in on a Rfental home. We loved the decor while feeling so comfortable. I could only wish my home was this great! The kids had so much fun in the heated pool while the adults relaxed in the hot tub. The hot tub is free, but you do have to pay for the pool to be heated, but we felt it was well worth the charge. I was gratefully surprised at how well the kitchen was equipped. We cooked a lot and that was so convenient! The bunk room for the kids worked out great! Our six kids fit very well and comfortable and we appreciated how the bath was set up for the kids. One thing we found to be helpful since the weather was so nice was the downstairs screening porch. Our kids made tents outside, played non stop with their cousins there! Safe and happy! The many decks gave us each privacy and time away from the group. We loved we could stroll to the beach so easily with the kids and had the convenience of the private beach access right there. Sunkissed is our new home to go to in Destin!

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

The electrical outlets in the downstairs right bedroom didn't work and the pool electrics were finicky, but otherwise we had a great stay! You may also want to check the batteries in the smoke detectors and thermostat.

Owner's Response: This home is one of our favorites! We love the gorgeous lake views, the pool with waterfall feature and easy access to the beach. Thank you for letting us know about the outlets plus the smoke detector batteries, we will have our maintenance team check into that and get an electrician out if necessary for the outlets. Again, thank you for your feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy!

Beautiful home

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Destin. The house was absolutely stunning and had many accommodations. Unfortunately we didn't have hot water in the house for the first two days of our trip. The management company was easy to work with in resolving this issue. We had a few other minor issues during our stay but nothing else major.

Owner's Response: We're so happy that you thought the house was stunning, we absolutely do too. We're sorry that the water wasn't warm enough for you in the house. Our property manager says it was warm, just not warm enough for your party, so they reset the water heater. For some reason, you experienced the same issue the next day so we sent a contractor out to assess it soon after you called. We're sorry about that inconvenience but are glad you enjoyed the other lovely features of this home, like the spectacular views over the nature preserve, pool with waterfall, and easy access to the beach. Thank you for your feedback, and thank you for staying with Real Joy.

Awesome location and a great house!

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us that got together for this vacation - and this house fit us all perfectly! It was in an awesome location - so close to the beach (private access point), shops, bars, activities - we loved it! And the neighborhood was really neat too! The house was well stocked with all the stuff we needed to cook, visit the beach, and have fun. One bit of advice to highlight something we missed early on - the hot tub looking bit of the pool is only heated when you pay for it. We thought the pool was the only thing you had to pay to heat and didn't realize the hot tub required it as well until the last minute. It was over the holidays as well, because we showed up there December 26, but even at that, the property management team was really quick to respond and get it added for us. Just a fair point to mention for future renters considering heating the pool.

When we got to the house, the pool heater was broken and we found a bed that hadn't been cleaned from the toddler that must have been sleeping in it the week ahead of us. I only mention this because of the way that the property management team dealt with the problems - I think this tells a lot about the experience. They were very accommodating, worked to fix the heater as quickly as they could, and made sure they communicated with us constantly. Everything can't always be perfect - but those imperfect times show what a company is really made of - and these guys were terrific!

We'd definitely consider this property again, and we're pretty convinced that not much beats Destin! Great memories made, and a awesome vacation was had by all!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We're glad that you enjoyed this gorgeous home close to the beach, shops, bars and activities! Thank you for the feedback on the hot tub confusion. We have now added additional information to check in instructions to clear it up for future guests. We were also happy to refund a large portion of the cleaning fee because our crew missed the bed and refund your pool heating fee for your inconvenience - we apologize for that. The pool heater is fully functional now. We're so happy to hear that our staff handled your situation well and hope you join us again. Thank you again for staying with Real Joy!
