The property was relaxing, plenty of room every where.

  • 4 of 5

Wished we had stayed more days, This is a great house, Whenever I had a question, it was answer very quickly, the kids loved the clubhouse. The only downfall was we didn't have armbands for the pool left for us like some of the other properties did. We had to purchase them individually we had 19 quest so that was another 100.00. They did tell us ahead of time, but some of the other properties have them in the house already. Destiny's Palace is wonderful place to stay.

Exactly what we expected

  • 4 of 5

The house was exactly as the pictures online appear. We did run into a couple of snags which were immediately responded to and fixed.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

I’ve vacationed in Florida on many occasions but this was my first time in Destin, FL. We stayed in the Destiny’s Palace property. My family and I enjoyed the beach, great shopping and lounging at the rental home. The house was clean and we enjoyed the spacious kitchen. EVERYTHING is so convenient to it's location. The RealJoy Vacations staff is great! I always spoke with a person when I called and the maintenance team responded within the hour when we had an issue with our propane tank on the grill. He replaced the tank and we enjoyed our grilled steaks for dinner. The vacation experience was wonderful! Will make this an annual family gathering. Kudos to the RealJoy Customer Service Team!

Over all a nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Destiny's Palace. The fun pass, which allows for free golf every day is an awesome perk!! We had a couple of small issues at first, but the management came right in to fix the problems. The comforter in the master, was dirty, and the grill needed new flavor bars, which I replaced, but was told I will receive a check within two weeks for reimbursement. The golf cart is like a limo, and needed to be cleaned up, but worked fine. The Master bedroom and bathroom are huge, but if you are sharing the house with another couple, they will be short changed on the bathroom because they will be sharing with other bedrooms.

We were not pleased with having to pay to use the pool and clubhouse, because we have stayed in Destiny East in the past and always were left the wrist bands for the amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback about gorgeous Destiny's Palace in Destiny East. We have the information about paying for the wristbands on all of our marketing materials. We believe that is something new required by the homeowner's association. We're glad you enjoyed the amenities provided by the Real Joy Fun Pass and hope you enjoyed all the area has to offer. Thanks again for your feedback, and thank you for staying with Real Joy.
