~Another lovely vacation rental managed by RealJoy Vacations in Destin, Florida.~
This was a VRBO location, but we rented from RealJoy. The property was gated and pretty clean. The rental unit was a bit dated but clean. The beds and pillows were very old and stained...but livable. When we arrived there was no cable and no internet...I have 3 younger kids, so this was a real problem. We called the front desk and they (VRBO) were very helpful. They called the cable company to come take a look. Apparently the owners or RealJoy (or maybe they are one in the same) turned off the cable and internet after the last renters left because they were "streaming too much porn" (per the cable guy). He was able to turn the cable back on to only one of our 3 TVs, but it wasn't until 2 days after we arrived. He/they never got the internet back on. My kids were not amused at the lack of technology to say the least. I didn't really mind the silence...but the kids hollering soon took the place of Dan TDM and Pat and Jen, so the silence was short lived. I had to call RealJoy about the internet because VRBO couldn't authorize it to be turned back on. They "worked on it" but never called me back to say why it was never turned on and no discounts were offered. The VRBO staff at the front desk gave me codes for their lobby wifi, but it was too far away to use. It is right on the beach so that is very convenient. This unit didn't include beach umbrellas/service. The pool is clean and has several shaded chairs/tables. My review of RealJoy is just average. Destin on the other hand is amazing and totally made up for their shortcomings.. It is the perfect mix of big and small. We rented jet skis and went on a dolphin tour with Extreme H2O. They immediately took us to several spots where dolphins and their young were swimming in the ocean. We didn't get to touch or swim in the water with them, but I think this was a better experience than a 2 minute ride on the poor dolphins cooped up in the sea world type place. We liked them so much we went back the next day and rented a pontoon boat to snorkle and go to crab island. Extreme H2O and all of their staff were very nice and reliable, so we highly recommend them. If you have the extra money renting through VRBO may be alot nicer than through RealJoy.
The toilet kept running even after staff looked at it. The bedrooms are lacking from the pic of the living room. They redid the living room but the bedrooms are old. The beds are extremely hard and very very uncomfortable. We asked for a mattress topper after explaining the cheap quality of the mattress, so they sent a sheet! I again expressed my displeasure so the next day which was halfway into the trip they brought an actual topper which made it ok but not good. The pull out mattress in the living room was horribly thin, non supporting and two bars jammed into your back. Terrible pullout bed. I expressed this so they offered an air mattress. Later that day we received it and that night we needed to use it but it had weak batteries, the pump supplied didn't fit and the air mattress had two small holes making it useless. The next day I again expressed my displeasure that for the first two nights two of the three beds were useless and I slept on the floor. They finally sent us a working air mattress. I left a voicemail about my displeasures asking for a partial refund by they didn't call back and I haven't seen any part of refund. They have a nice location beachfront but the owners didn't spend money on their guests beds and pullout bed. The pic of the living room is nice but the bedrooms are very dated. This company allowed us to spend a high dollar amount for a very lacking unit. The sleeping arrangements are very subpar and we are upset this was allowed to happen. Once you get there it is too late to fix and every day we suffered with how we slept. Unit 112 and VRBO/RealJoy need to fix these issues before others waste their money here. I also am still waiting for a partial refund for the great inconviences that were caused and allowed. This was our family vacation and it was messed up by not having adequate mattresses to sleep on which caused a big big lack of sleep. So as you read this VRBO/RealJoy and the owners of unit 112 we didn't enjoy the unit and want a partial refund. Call me!
Our stay was wonderful, the condo was Clean. Not a far walk from the Beach. Really nice people that works at the front desk. Very peaceful, Loved the pool too.
They had really good service and were really kind.honestly one of my best experiences ever and really convinient having the ocean right in front of the room. The only thing left out was for us to have another week of vacation there
We had a blast staying here. The place was clean and exactly like pictures on the website... even better. Great location on Destin, FL. We will definitely be back. Guys, thanks so much for a wonderful mini vacation.
