Guestbook comments from the manager

5-Star Review

Our family got together to celebrate the July 4th Holiday before my daughter and son-in-law moved to California with the air Force. We loved the home, there were 8 adults,a 2 year and 2 5 month old babies and we had more than enough room. The home is beautifully furnished and the open kitchen allowed us all to be together even during meal preparation. The bedrooms and closets were big and comfortable. The pool was awesome and the entire family enjoyed it. The people at RealJoy made it so easy and were so nice. I live in Panama City and when we need another get away RealJoy will be my first choice for vacation rentals.

It was a good stay

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful, very close to the beach, the backyard was awesome and we enjoyed the grill. I also appreciated the laundry room, it was great to be able to come back from the beach and do our laundry. The various TVs around the house were great, we were able to separate the kids by ages, and have them watch their shows. We enjoyed sitting outside on the porches, it was awesome. The house is very spacious, my husband, who is the cook of the family, enjoyed the big kitchen, although make sure to take your pots and pans, the ones at the house are for smaller families not big groups. Also, the blender leaks a lot. The furnishings need updating, especially the beds, they creak, are lopsided and very uncomfortable. One of the couples that were with us decided to sleep on the floor rather than sleep on the bed in their room because it was too noisy and lopsided. Also, the chairs of the dining room are dangerously old. We weren't able to use at least 3 of them, because they were so wobbly and seemed that they were about the fall apart at any minute. The rest are not that much better. Besides that, we truly enjoyed our stay. The house is very close to anything you may need, grocery stores, pharmacies, and shops, and the highway. We truly had a great time on our vacation!

Great house with plenty of fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

Hosted our family reunion here. We had an absolutely amazing time! So close to the beach...only about 2 blocks away. Very close to a grocery store and about 5 miles from INCREDIBLE outlets. This house was perfect for our large family. The two living room areas were ideal. Bedrooms had plenty of room. Closets and dressers added a home feel because you could "move in" without living out of your suitcase for the week. We loved the pool. The kids spent countless hours during the day and adults were able to float every evening. The back yard provided a private oasis for entertaining away from the road. WiFi worked great during the whole stay which was a must during the rainy days. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our stay! If we decide to go back to Destin again, this is the place!!! 5 PLUS stars!!

Out of Date!

  • 2 of 5

I was very disappointed in this property. The first thing I noticed (as soon as I walked in the door) the porcelain tile floors in the down stairs living room and kitchen were terrible! They were cracked and broken in so many areas of the rooms. Plus they looked like they hadn't been properly cleaned in a while. The furniture throughout the house was old and needed to be replaced especially the mattresses on the beds. The washing machine did not work at all, and the pool filter was not working in the pool. By the time we left, the water was clouded and dirty.

Everything did appear to be clean (linens, bathrooms, kitchen, carpet, patios) but for the price we paid we expected it to be in better shape.

Owner's Response: Hi Victoria, we are so happy you found everything to be clean and enjoyed the easy access to the beach. We hope that you enjoyed the outdoor living area and hot tub. We found that you contacted us regarding the washing machine and it has been repaired since your stay. However, we do not have a record of you contacting us regarding the other issues which would have given us an opportunity to correct them during your stay. Thank you for your feedback that you provided Real Joy.

Afternoon Delight

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 6 Vietnam Veterans getting together for a reunion, so we needed a place with six bedrooms, everyone with his private space. Afternoon Delight was perfect for us. Everything was as advertised. Plenty of lounging room, bathrooms, good kitchen facilities, nice-looking place, and we spent lots of time by the pool. Easy walk of the beach. Everyone told me how pleased they were with this venue and we're already planning to return next year. Couldn't have been happier with this choice.

The property was very nice. No complaints at all.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and looking forward to visiting again next year. The property was within walking distance to the beach and shopping plaza. The property was equipped with everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable. The only issue we had was the door knob to the back door needed to be tightened, but, we called for maintenance and they took care of it immediately. I will definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

Great for large families

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much! Our large extended family made full use of every room/sleeping space, and it never felt crowded. The house was clean, simply decorated, and had a decent amount of kitchenware/appliances. We were able to comfortably park two large vans in the driveway but a third car would have been tight if we didn't carpool like we did. The neighborhood was close to everything, felt safe, and the half a mile walk to the beach was pleasant. For beach access, take a right when you leave the house, a right again at the end of the street, and you'll see a public beach access sign to your left shortly after that. There's a shower which was nice for rinsing off. We wish the beach area wasn't blocked off to the other hotels during the day, leaving such limited area for public use. The beach was pretty nonetheless. It was great that there was a swimming pool at the house, since the kids could continue their water fun after the beach. However, the pool is smaller than it appears and the picture and is not exactly blue. The hot tub in the back of the house wasn't working at first, but the owners sent someone out the next morning to get it started for us. The hot tub issue was not a big deal to us but we greatly appreciated the fast response from the owners. The outdoors space in the back was great for grilling, hanging out, and s'mores in the evening. For future renters, bring your hair dryers, extra towels and pillows, shampoo, and as mentioned by the owners, toilet paper. Besides the minor things, we would stay here again.
