4th oh July at Destin
Wonderful Week at the Emerald Coast
Hey Matthew, thank you for your review this beautiful home. We're pleased to hear you had a wonderful 4th of July week at Happily Ever After. We hope your group enjoyed the amazing lagoon pool onsite! Thanks again for staying with RealJoy Vacations.
I booked this property late because I wasn't sure who in my family was coming. Older children , graduation, jobs, etc. The property was very clean and i was satisfied. The master suite is downstairs but if i had to do it over i would stay in one of the up stairs bedrooms. I could hear my family walking up stairs at night when I was trying to sleep. Also, make sur you bring your own shampoo, laundry soap, and dish washing detergent.
Hey Gary, thank you for your feedback. We're happy you found this house to be a good value and were satisfied with your stay. We hope everyone enjoyed the amazing lagoon pool and lounge area as well! We do send emailed lists of starter items we provide and a FAQ section that includes what items you may need to bring for your trip. Thanks again for your review.
We loved the property, Happily Ever After! It was clean and perfectly furnished for our group of 10. The pool area was awesome, and it was great to be just across the street. The only downside is being about a half mile from beach access. We had some in our group that were not able to make the walk, but we were able to take shifts driving people down to drop them off and using the shuttle.
Thanks for a great stay!
Hi Jessica, thank you for your feedback. We're so happy your group enjoyed this beautiful home and the lagoon pool in Villages of Crystal Beach! We're also glad you got to utilize the beach shuttle to take you to and from the beach. Thanks again for staying with RealJoy Vacations!
Unpleasant and uncomfortable process
While the property was fantastic, the process with Real Joy was absolutely unpleasant and uncomfortable. We did not receive check in information via email. Instead we had to go to the rental office and “present ID” to make sure we were who we said we were. The day after check-in someone from the office comes by unannounced to make sure there was an adult present EVEN THOUGH THREE adults were on the trip and had come to the rental office to check-in. Susie, one of the workers, was not pleasant. My family and I felt profiled and a bit harassed. We spent too much money to have to go through all of that. Will not be using RealJoy again. Horrible experience.
Hi Jasmine, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay. We hope you enjoyed the huge lagoon pool and the seasonal beach trolley. After checking into this situation, this home does not allow groups of adults under 25 and that information is on all of our marketing materials. When our reservations team checked into the ages of your party, we found that the ages were 25, 23, 19, 16, 16. According to our policies, we could only allow your group to come with the presence of a parent. Most of your group was underage, so we were concerned about protecting the home for our homeowner since they have expressly requested that we not allow young groups. We did not charge your group the additional fees we typically charge groups of your age and only requested that a parent be present but we did require that you check into our office and present your drivers licenses. If we had done anything less, we would have been neglecting our duties to uphold the homeowner’s wishes. We hope you understand and thank you for your feedback.
