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!
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.
Everything was perfect! It'sounds within distance from shopping centers, grocery stores, and nice restaurants. It's a good place to have a small get together for a barbecue .We had complimentary free admission tickets for boat rides, jet skiing, parasailing etc. The home was very neat and clean with a golf cart to take you to the beach or restaurant right outside the subdivision.
My family rented this house in June for a family reunion trip. This was our second rental in Destiny East. We had 8 adults and 8 children in 4 family groups. We were looking for a large square footage since we would be sharing the space with several families. The bedroom layout served our purpose with 5 bedrooms, all with private or connecting baths. Although only one large master suite with grand bathroom, the other bedrooms were adequate in size and beds. It would have been nice to have all 4 kings instead of only 2. The kitchen was large and was fully furnished for our cooking needs. We used the
propane grill several times that is located just off of the living area on the screened in porch. There are 7 or 8 outdoor chairs and a small coffee table on the porch with nice cushions. It is fully screened which is probably a nice feature for certain times of the year, but in the heat of the summer, it seemed to trap both the heat and the smell of the grill. There were no DVD players in the house which seemed odd. It would have been a nice asset. There were a few service issues, but they were addressed by maintenance. There was some struggle for the AC to keep up with the downstairs, but again, with high ceilings and large windows with the summer heat, it was working hard. We rented the golf cart. It was a life saver! It is street legal to get out of the neighborhood and out to the
beach. With 8 kids and all the beach stuff, we fully utilized the cart several times a day. Parking at the public beach is about 6 blocks away. Its a long walk. The lot fills up before 10 am every day, so if you want a parking spot, get there early. Otherwise, hit or miss. The parking lot is located in the lot with the Crab Shack restaurant and bar. It was nice to have access to it in the middle of the day if you wanted food or drink without going back to the house. On the days that we couldn't get a parking spot, a designated driver would drop everyone off with all the beach stuff (chairs, EZ UP canopy, ice chest, toys, floats, food, etc) and park back at the house. That way, only 1 person had to make that walk. There is a second pool for Destiny East that is located outside the neighborhood gate on the way to the beach. We enjoyed having access to it while at the beach. It was a stopping off place going to and from the house. It is also relatively unused! Overall, we had a wonderful time and the house served us well! Great pool, playground, gym at club.
This home was absolutely stunning. Just a few recommendations to make your stay a little better. The check in time of no earlier than 4pm makes it difficult to get checked in unload your bags and check out your surroundings. I would recommend stopping by the destiny east club house before checking in to obtain your wrist bands needed to use the pool and other club house amenities ( the cost is 5.00 per wrist band). Make sure you check the charge level on the golf cart before you take it on a ride. The house itself was spotless with lots of room and an awesome kitchen area. If you plan on cooking I would recommend you bring a large skillet.
The property was ample enough for the twelve of us that traveled there together. We had 6 kids and 6 adults and all agreed it would have been very doable to invite another family of 4 without getting too crowded. The boys (three of them 11 years old) really enjoyed both the pool table and the table tennis when they weren't in the heated pool. It was also a nice thing to keep them active and out of the sun!
The rooms were all nice and the place was as clean as it can be with several travelers coming through there. There was still sand and dust balls found at corners, etc, but that is somewhat expected. We did have to use several towels on the floor entering the home from the pool to help wipe sandy and dirty feet coming in from outside. Having a entry rug there is most definitely needed! We are all used to taking shoes off outside as we did there too, but the sand is so fine that it kept finding its way inside quite often! We swept the floor several times a day to be able to walk barefooted. A motorized sweeper of some sort would be quite nice to help with that. The only other issue was a patent really wished the shower in their room ( the master bedroom on third floor) had their window covered with a blind of some sort. She really thought that the level of height nor the location was private enough as there is a big home next door.
The location is perfect at the kids were able to go out front and throw the football, etc. without leaving the parents too concerned. We were able to walk to the beach quite easily in 2 minutes and having a private beaching area to use was perfect!
We all really enjoyed ourselves and we all agreed we would come back to that location and home in the future. Thank you for such a great home and location!!!
