Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our large family. We had 21 guests and the home fit us perfectly. It's nice to have the extra kitchen for cooking large family meals. Days that we didn't want to cook, we were in walking distance to lots of restaurants. The short walk to the beach was nice too

Lovely home: TONS of space

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great fit for our group of 18. Lots of space for us all to gather and enjoy meals together. The children enjoyed the private heated pool and quick walk/bike ride to the beach. Super close to grocery, Destin Commons shopping, and lots of restaurants. This is for sure a property that we will stay at again!

Perfect Location for this Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Ok rental property.....

  • 2 of 5

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. 😊򒭤

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking the time to give your feedback on this lovely home. The main house has excellent spaces to gather and the private pool area is fabulous. The owner heard your feedback and renovated the guest house kitchen and bath. They also made some landscaping improvements and we are keeping an eye on pool maintenance. To eliminate confusion, we also added a beach access map to marketing so that guests could find the beach more easily. We are sorry that you were disappointed, but really appreciate your feedback so that we could improve it for future guests. Please let us know if you consider a return visit and I'm sure we can arrange a discount. Just contact marketing@realjoy.com. We will verify your identity and let our Reservations team know to to discount your stay. Again, thank you for staying with Real Joy!

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.
