Birthday trip 2018
Property was perfect. Short walk to the beach. Accommodations were immaculate. Close to shopping center and grocery stores. Would definitely stay again!!
Loved staying in the Destiny by the Sea neighborhood. House was great! Wish the owner would consider including bicycles like many of the other properties in the neighborhood have.
Wonderful location, exactly as described!
We had a wonderful stay. The home provided plenty of space. I was nervous about reading reviews about the roof but other than it was hot (haha) we had no complaints. The roof was just as described. The house was as well. The location can’t be beat. We have a 5 year d and a 2 year old and the short walk to the beach was a lifesaver. We loved that it was gated. It was quiet and he boys enjoyed time at the pool. We simply cannot complain!
Hi Lindy, Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We are so glad you found this home to be just as described and that your family enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the great community pool. We appreciate the feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy.
House not ready at check in time!!
Called Real Joy since 7am to inform them I was in town already and asked if an early check in was possible. They stated that check out was at 10 and they would be cleaning right after. Called them again around 1pm to follow up and they said they were still cleaning. Called them a total of 3 times and all along they made it seem as if they were still cleaning the house. We finally arrived to the house at about 345pm to find out that the house was not ready for check in! The cleaning crew arrived at the same time we did! Entered the house with the cleaning crew and the house was extremely dirty! Went up to the rooftop to find plastics hanging over the balcony and bags of cement all over as if construction was going on! Finally called Real Joy to inform them of everything and requested a call back from a manager and up to this day I have not received a follow up! They have so many policies for the customer and if something goes wrong we have to pay but when it comes to them it okay and they dont even follow up to apologize! We'll see if we get a call back now with this review!! I seriously doubt we will though!! Was really disappointed with the whole process!!
Hi James, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay. We hope you enjoyed being so close to the beach and the amazing community pool at Destiny by the Sea. We're sorry for any inconveniences you experienced, but the rooftop was fully accessible during your stay. There was a tarp placed over a small patch of the wall being repaired on the rooftop deck which shouldn’t have affected your access or enjoyment of the deck. We had to have a hive of bees removed and relocated for this property and didn’t have wall repairs done during your stay. We did some checking and found that we resent the cleaners back out the same day you called to address the cleaning issues. Again, we are sorry for the inconveniences you experienced and thank you again for your feedback.
I rented this property for my mom's 60th birthday. We get about 2 hours outside of town (drove in from Texas), and we get a call, saying that the rooftop would be under construction. Sure wish they would've let me know about this in advance. What's the point of a rooftop retreat, when there's no rooftop? On top of that, there were dead bugs in all the window sills, the first floor has a weird chemical smell, and the first floor bedroom locks from the outside (my mom got to figure that out the hard way.) The living area was totally misrepresented. It's tiny. A bunch of the channels didn't work while we were there ESPN etc. and wifi doesn't work on the third floor. The location is good, but there were definitely some issues with our stay.
Hi Carson, thank you for your feedback. We hope you enjoyed being so close to the beach and the amazing community pool at Destiny by the Sea. We're sorry for any inconveniences you experienced, but the rooftop was fully accessible during your stay. There was a tarp placed over a small patch of the wall being repaired on the rooftop deck which shouldn’t have affected your access or enjoyment of the deck. We had to have a hive of bees removed and relocated for this property and didn’t have wall repairs done during your stay. We met with you the night you arrived and brought extra chairs for the living room and addressed the cable issue. Regarding the chemical smell, this was due to a neighboring property installing a new pool and having it waterproofed. We're sorry this was happening during your stay and are happy to note it has been completed. Thank you for noticing the door knob, it has now been fixed. Again, we are sorry for any issues you experienced and thank you for allowing us to assist you on your trip. Thanks again for your feedback.
