Great location in heart of Destin

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our spring break trip. Everyone had a comfortable bed and the living quarters were spacious. On the downside, there were no cleaning products and a limited supply of garbage bags. The dryer was not functioning properly so we were able to get the repairman on site with a quick phone call. I would recommend this place whole-heartedly.

Realjoy was amazing to work with

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice and nicely decorated. We loved the open large living, dining, kitchen area. The LR furniture is comfortable. Real joy was very responsive to us and the extra free activities were amazing! The pool is wonderful -- large, well maintained, beautiful. We loved the community being gated so it was easy to get in and out of your driveway. Some things need attention in the house. Bunk room, which is rated for 5 people, needs new mattresses on every bed; you can feel the springs and we had to buy foam toppers to use. All the other beds are very comfortable. The house is listed for 12 people but there were only 2 chairs on the balcony. More hooks to hang towels are desperately needed in bathrooms and/or bedrooms. There was not one tea towel or packet of dishwasher soap in the kitchen. We bought tea towels for our use. It would be nice to have a chair in the bedrooms or at least in the master. These are small things, except for mattresses in the bunk room, but would improve your overall experience in this home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry you were disappointed with the mattresses in the bunkroom and will pass along your feedback about their comfort and the other items to the owner for their consideration. We do provide our guests with dishwasher soap and hand towels in the kitchen, we wish you'd called us about this and we would have brought some out! Again, thank you for your stay, we hope you will join us again-

Outstanding

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! The two beds in the bunk room were not terribly comfortable, but my kids didn't complain. The dryer did leave black marks on our clothes too, which was unfortunate, but overall I would definitely book this house again. Our family and friends loved it and the pool was to die for. Thank you so much!
