~Another gorgeous vacation rental managed by RealJoy Vacations in Destin, Florida.~
The Lazy Pineapple was in the perfect location in the quiet neighborhood of Crystal Beach. It was a short walk to the clear blue water and soft white sandy beach. We could literally park our car for the week. Our families also rented bikes and the kids could ride through the neighborhood without any worries or traffic. Shopping and restaurants were also within walking distance. The best part was our very own private pool in the backyard that we didn't have to share with anyone.
My family and I decided to make Destin our family vacation area each year. We love the beach, outlets and just the overall area. We were very excited to stay at the Lazy Pineapple. The house was very easy to find and it was also located in an area that was easy to move about to Walmart, shopping centers, outlets, etc (Huge Plus for us😊 I have to say that I was a little disappointed with some areas of the house. The kitchen and living area in the main house was very nice. Plenty of space of us to sit at the table to eat as a family and 3 people to cook in the kitchen (which we did every night we stayed 😊. The parts that I was a little disappointed by were the mother in law suit, the pool area, the front landscaping and also the beach access area. The mother in law suit would have been a great bonus, but it appears that it hasn't had any updates in a while (kitchen sink, bathroom, spider webs, peeling wall paper). It appeared that the pool area had not been maintained very well (not like the picture). The front landscaping was almost the same as the pool area. It had a pile of brush in front of the house that was not very appealing at all. The part of the vacation that disappointed me the most was the beach area. One of the reasons that I chose this house was because it stated in the amenities and also reviews from other guests that the beach area was easily accessible and it was PUBLIC beach area. NOT SO! After a few family members reporting that the area that was apart of our "area" was indeed the "private," I had to call and verify with RealJoy about this situation. We ended up having to move about 2 blocks from the "public acces" entrance. I was not happy and the fact that we had to rent chairs (even though we had our own) to "have a spot" was not cool either. Overall, I'm not sure that we will stay at this property again, but the best part was that we got there safe and we were together. 😊
Great for all ages. Kids teens adults all had a great time. Pool was great for relaxing at night. Beach right up the street. We will be back.
Beautiful decor and open floor plan makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. 9 adults and 6 kids (ages 2 to 13) all had a blast! 1st day rented 6 bikes- 5 for kids and 1 adult was $50 for the entire week per bike (great deal!) Kids loved riding their bikes daily on quite streets and on 4 minute walk to beach. All the rooms and especially kitchen fully stocked. Mornings we would stroll to the beach and back to the house for lunch and dip in refreshing "private" backyard pool. Great shopping, restaurants (LuLu's highly recommend) and kid fun within 10 minute drive. We took kids to arcade one day and race cars another. We enjoyed home cooked family meals and amazing fresh seafood restaurant. Highly recommend renting a pontoon boat at least one day (Harbour Walk Village) and making it a day out on the waters and visiting Crab Island. Cruised the waters and docked 3 different spots to snorkel. Tons of places to eat, play, and shop at the Village. You can't beat the clear blue waters, beautiful soft white sand and friendly/helpful business owners. It's like a home away from home. Everywhere we went we felt so warmly welcomed. Almost forgot.... There is a carriage house extended from main house which is (fully stocked like separate apartment), amazing for a little extra privacy for adults or some quite away time for family with small children to rest or nap. Can't wait to go back next year! We are hoping to make it a yearly tradition.
The Lazy Pineapple was a very nice house. All 17 of us fit nicely. The furnishing were nice. Some complaints
about the beds being uncomfortable. We were disappointed in the pool area. It was not very well maintained.
My only suggestion would be that maybe part of the double garage out back could be turned into some type
of cabana/rec area for outside entertainment. Also, beach access is just that. We set our beach chairs, etc.
up on the beach the first day and were told that we could not be there because it was a private beach and
would have to move another two blocks up the beach to the public area which was not a large area. Overall
our experience at the Lazy Pineapple was great! Even the construction next door didn't bother us.
My family and I have been going to beaches all over the gulf and coast for years, we couldn't wait for the lazy pinneapple!! The house was easy to find and very adorable, loved the keyless entry, kitchen was fantastic, as well as the bedrooms and the in-laws quarter was a bonus!! There was plenty of space for all of us!!!We had 3 vehicles, parking was tight, but all fit in driveway. The beach is a 5 minute walk, but that's all you can do, as the beach to the left and right of the 8ft public section is private, so you have 8ft of public beach access where EVERYONE ELSE IS. There is not a prestige beach for this house.....we found out from beach patrol after we questioned it. So we drove to the public park, paid $6 a car load( and since there was 12 of us, that was 2 cars $12/day) and then we had PLENTY OF BEACH ACCESS. (That was about a 5-10 min drive depending on traffic)! All in all it was ok, but if we knew we couldn't walk to beach and take our chairs and umbrellas and not be elbow to elbow with someone else, we would NOT have rented this place. You will have to DRIVE for beach fun, not worth the money of you ask me. We will find a house that has beach access next year!!
